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.

It has worked well, if you believe the numbers...

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.

Ginter Place Condos

In early 2012, we were approached by the developers of Ginter Place to discuss taking the lead role in the project’s sales.  Of the 70 units, 15 had sold in the first 4 years of marketing the property.  Ginter Place was in danger of becoming a failed condominium project with a conversion to apartments.

Some of Our Sales

New lots in mature neighborhoods can be especially tricky to value correctly.

5007 Sylvan Road | Westover Hills Infill

Purchased as part of a set as a home AND lot, 5007 was built to provide a new home opportunity with the environment of a mature urban neighborhood.  Avant Development contracted for and constructed a 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home in a craftsman style to honor the existing fabric of the neighborhood.  The home featured […]


2404 Stuart Avenue | Fan District

Selling in the Fan District requires a little different take on marketing than other areas. The lack of available inventory, combined with the fact that creation of new inventory in the neighborhood in almost impossible on any scale, has kept the market relatively stable with more demand than can be satisfied.  Sales techniques designed to […]
