Chadwick Farms 2013


 First, I want to thank you for taking the time to read our market report that we've prepared for the Chadwick Farms neighborhood.

As the only real estate company in Roanoke, my team and I have made it a point to make Chadwick Farms one of our specialty neighborhoods.  As a result of this focus, we were one of the top selling real estate companies in Chadwick Farms in 2013.

In 2013 we focused a lot of our efforts in marketing in Roanoke and in Chadwick Farms specifically.  At one point, we actually knocked on doors in the neighorhood trying to find those who might be ready to sell because there was a real lack of inventory.  This is not our favorite method of reaching out to find sellers, but when we have buyers looking for something specific, we work hard to find it.
