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.

Featured Projects


Huntt’s Row

Along the 2600 Block of Kensington Avenue in Richmond’s Fan District will soon sit a development of 8 new town homes.  The project, dubbed Huntt’s Row, will offer decidedly upscale and historically compatible newly constructed homes on one of the Fan’s most walkable blocks. The homes will blend a traditional exterior aesthetic with an interior […]


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.  


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.

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

4306 New Kent Road | Westover Hills

Selling in homes in Richmond’s early 20th Century neighborhoods requires both a special appreciation for the architecture of the era and the ability to understand the value differences between the seemingly insignificant distances between neighborhoods. The Semmes Ave/Forest Hill Avenue areas of Richmond are populated by many of Richmond’s neighborhoods where crossing a street may […]


3838 Mill Mount DR | Powhatan

The rural development model lends itself to larger lots and less density.  More space between homes usually translates into more privacy and freedom than offered in the HOA driven developments of suburbia. Using all available tools to help identify potential buyers is paramount in less dense settings where the frequency of showings is lower and […]
