One of the benefits of working extensively with the DEVELOPMENT community is the access to the ARCHITECTURAL community. Being asked to collaborate with the designers and builders to create spaces that the public demands is one of the greatest compliments a brokerage can receive.
We have received it on several occasions.
The housing market has changed sharply since its height and helping communicate the new demands of the buying public to those that design and build is a mission that is both important and fun. Being asked to ‘charette‘ on the design of ‘flexible housing’ or to match the correct size, materials, sustainability and finishes of a new ‘four-square‘ in a mature neighborhood never fails to be stimulating. Hearing the ideas of some of the brightest in the Metro is also something that makes our job that much more fun.
Exposure and dialogue with the creators of housing benefits our ultimately benefits our clients. Knowing where housing is headed is just one more benefit of working with One South.

Each year, the Better Housing Coalition gathers together the best of the best of projects completed in the last calendar year and judges recognizes them for the efforts to rebuild the right way.
2011′s ceremony has held at the Hippodrome Theater in Jackson Ward.
It was an honor to be a representative on the judging panel and it was even more so to call many of the folks that were nominated and/or winners our clients. Ron Stallings with Walker Row Partnership, David Gammino with City and Guilds were both recognized. Property Results (Stella 360 Apartments), Bill Chapman with BCE, David Johannas with Johannas Design Group, and Walter Parks Architects were also part of development teams on many projects recognized over the course of the evening.
We congratulate them all.

Suburban Richmond expanded tremendously in the past decade. Areas like The West End, Glen Allen, Chesterfield and Midlothian all experienced rapid growth. Check out or page on Suburban Richmond to find where we break down many of the areas and terms you commonly hear when people talk about what is considered ‘THE BURBS.’
In January 2008, a group of established and high producing agents decided that there was a better way to do business and One South Realty was born. Recognizing that the new way real estate was done involved merging residential and commercial practices with a developer presence, One South grew quickly into the teeth of one of the most challenging markets in history.
With some of the most in-depth knowledge of the Metro and the subtleties between neighborhoods, One South offers its clients progressive marketing techniques, multiple layers of experience and a proactive mindset……exactly what a client SHOULD expect from an professional sales team.
Where is Jackson Ward? Wait…..I thought that was Carver. I’m confused. Where is VCU? I thought that was MCV.
Selling within the City limits requires some additional knowledge that many agents are unwilling to seek.
That is not the case with the agents of One South.
By constantly exposing themselves to those that understand the past AND are paving the future of RVA, One South agents understand not only the trends, but the reasons behind them. Historic Tax Credits, Enterprise Zones, Neighborhoods in Bloom, Tax Abatement and HUD incentives all play a role in revitalization and renovation. Knowing where it is headed and which neighborhoods qualify is paramount in understand future values.

A computer doesn’t know what you are looking for unless you tell it. Even then, it only has a vague idea. I somehow doubt that if Google hasn’t figured it out yet, then your local MLS hasn’t either and with 20,000+ listings in MLS at any one time, your computer needs guidance…..
Ask us how to use layered searches to generate the correct results. We understand how to use multiple search strings to refine results. Eliminating the clutter so that searches have impact is just one of many keys to finding the right home for you.
