Thank you for your interest in purchasing real estate in rural Virginia.  Our area is known as Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region (One of Virginia’s best kept secrets) the historical Northern Neck.  The Northern Neck is a large peninsula with the Potomac River to our North, the Chesapeake Bay to our East, and the Rappahannock River to our South & West. These rivers offer serene beaches and stunning water views. Fishing, hunting, golfing, boating, exploring nature, and visiting historical landmarks are activities that you can enjoy here.   We are indeed rural, but not too rural!  Here you can enjoy total seclusion and still have a quaint fishing village with charming shops, and old country stores just a short drive away. However if you are like my wife and need to get to “the city”, you can do so in about two hours. Washington DC, Fredericksburg, Richmond, and Norfolk/Virginia Beach are all less then a two hour drive.   Medical facilities, superb restaurants, and nationally-recognized stores are all within a short drive as well.


What is life like in the Northern Neck?  Well, having lived here for my entire life, and having been a 5th generation waterman, I can tell you most  anything you need to know about the area.  I’ve traveled to other places in the United States and I can’t think of any other place that I’d rather live.  The things I like most about this area are:

·        The natural beauty of our landscape

·        Slower pace of life without congestion and traffic jams

·        Knowing lots of faces and having friendly conversation wherever I go

·        Very little crime

·        Low cost of living

·        The water and the unique lifestyle that it provides (fishing, boating, skiing, etc.)

·        A safe environment to raise my children

·        Four distinct seasons, all of which are mild

·        Rich History

I want to personally invite you and your family to come and visit this beautiful historic area of Virginia. Whether you visit for a day or stay for a lifetime, you can escape the hustle and bustle of hectic urban life, and you’ll meet some friendly folks who call the Northern Neck home.  Please contact me today if you would like additional information on this area or to make an appointment to see other properties that we have to offer. We have a wide variety of properties available for sale.  If we don’t currently have a property in our inventory that fits your needs, I’ll work hard to find one that does.  Keep in mind that I have access to ALL properties available for sale in our marketplace, even those listed by other agents.  Also keep in mind that additional properties become available for sale each day.


I’d like to assist you in your search for just the right “country property.”  Contact me at your convenience so that we can chat for a while and discuss your wants, needs, and dreams.
