Isle of Wight County New Homes - Room to Grow

While Hampton Roads has a wide array of New Home Communities and places build new homes, there are increasingly limited opportunities close to the beach, and many new home buyers are turning to a slightly more rural, more country setting to be the backdrop for their lifestyle. For our New Homes Collection featured area today, we would like to take you on a tour of some of the choices available there.

What you will find is new home communities with spacious lots and more rural settings. If you are looking for serene, quieter living and a more open feel, then Isle of Wight county is a new home option that should be on your list. Being part of the TREG New Homes Collection means that we make discovering

Isn’t this time of year inspiring? The days are a little longer, the weather is warming up just enough to remind us that winter is almost over, and the sun is beaming through our windows. The sun beaming through our windows also politely reminds us that it’s time to do a little spring cleaning, too - the window streaks are more visible and somehow the junk drawer got out of control since winter. Before you dive into some good old fashioned spring cleaning, we have a few tips for you!

Make a plan. You’ve got the cleaning gloves and eye protection ready, but first you need a plan! Tackling each room one at a time will maximize your efforts, too. I would vote to start with whichever room stresses you out the most - maybe the craft room? The garage? By the

Have you ever thought of the expression ‘cream of the crop’? It’s a commonly used phrase that was probably borrowed from the French ‘la creme de la creme,’ the cream of the cream, the best of the best. The Circle of Excellence(SM) is much like that. It’s an annual awards program recognizing the association's top-producing REALTORS® in various categories all across Hampton Roads.

Technically speaking, to qualify for COE the amount of gross commission income or number of units sold are the main factors, but to The Real Estate Group, it’s about service. We believe in truly taking care of our clients and carrying them through the process well beyond the closing table. When you’re dedicated to real estate, a part of TREG, qualified for COE, what you’re

Nine times out of 10, if there’s a fire truck in your neighborhood, there is cause for alarm. But when it’s that remaining 10% chance and Edmarc is involved, it’s time to hug your family a little tighter and smile.

A fire truck escorting a big bus into a neighborhood is the last phase of the Movies With Santa operation. After all the toys are generously donated, they are packed up and brought to Edmarc. Edmarc then goes and separates the toys by each family’s wish list, plans the routes to deliver all the toys, and more importantly, aims to bring a little Christmas joy to these families who are dealing with so, so much.

The planning and coordination to get this accomplished is impressive, especially because it involves over 60 stops.

There are a ton of reasons why you might want to get up bright and early on a Saturday. Perhaps to put up the Christmas lights on your home, hit the road to go hiking, but to see a movie? That’s exactly what over 2,200 people did on Saturday, December 1st.

The Real Estate Group took over Regal Cinemas 12 in Town Center all in the name of supporting Edmarc Hospice for Children. Our agents invited their clients and their families to come by and take some photos with Santa or Mrs. Claus, and to see a free movie. In exchange, everyone was asked to bring an unwrapped toy for the kids of Edmarc.

The lobby was filled with our agents helping to direct traffic, and they came dressed for the part whether it be an ugly sweater or full out elf gear. We also had

If you’ve been curious about what we’ve been up to, we have a lot to tell you about! Just like most people experience, everything kicks into high gear right around the holidays. At The Real Estate Group, though, we really hit a running streak in September and that wave continues through the New Year. We jump started things with David Knox, really dove into goal setting in October, November was all about gratitude, and we closed out the month with Holidays in the City.

At our November Business Meeting, gratitude was the theme and it permeated the office. Have you ever thought about all benefits of gratitude? Well, here’s a running list to inspire you!

  1. Opens the door to more relationships

  2. Improves physical health

  3. Improves

Formerly called the "Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act", SCRA was updated during the term of President George W. Bush to modernize protections the original 1940 law contained. The Act is intended to provide relief to military members from undue financial and contractual burdens that could affect their readiness and detract from the military mission. It covers a range of financial areas that could impact military members, including those related to leasing of rental property. Military members who lease residential property may terminate their lease under the protection of SCRA with appropriate notice provided they are: 1) transferring to a new duty location due to permanent change of station (PCS) orders; 2) separating from the service due to

It’s no secret that we invest a lot of time and training into our agents here at The Real Estate Group, and one of the best classes of the year is our Goal Setting class taught in October. We consider the fourth quarter of the year to be somewhat of our agents’ New Year, and whether you’re a buyer or a seller there are measurable benefits.

For example, looking to sell your home towards the end of the year? Having the right negotiating skills to properly handle your equity is crucial. Maybe you’re looking to buy? The opportunities don’t usually just jump off the page; it takes a REALTOR ® who is more knowledgeable about real estate trends to analyze the market and better counsel you on the right time to buy.
