One South Realty is…

One South Realty Logo
The One South Realty Group, formed in January of 2008, is an independent brokerage located in Richmond's Fan District and we see the world a little bit differently. We have both sought out and adopted the most progressive sales and marketing practices from many different industries to help us better promote our properties and ourselves. From day one, we set out to create a methodology designed to reach our audience quickly, clearly and powerfully.

And if these numbers mean anything, it has worked well...

How Does One South Compare?

While the recent market upheaval has caused many casualties, One South has grown from the 'Original Gang of 5' to one of the premier brokerages in the Metro within a very short time frame. Attracting agents from many companies, large and small, who sought a better way, One South grew into the teeth of a market undergoing fundamental change. By focusing on the techniques that work, we have achieved one of the highest average sales prices in the region all while maintaining one of the shortest marketing times of any brokerage in the Richmond Association of Realtors. Achieving the highest prices in the shortest period of time for our clients is always the goal. Focusing our effort to those two ends, we have demonstrated that real estate is still thoroughly local and quality representation matters.

Citizen 6 | Floyd Ave

Citizen 6, located along Floyd Avenue, is a unique opportunity for 6 home buyers to own not only a new home in the Fan, but one with a unique and exciting aesthetic which departs sharply from much of the neighborhood’s perceived architectural style.
