Tell Us Your Story

Chris was very professional in his approach from the start.

 He was honest and accurate with his market assessment, and his recommendations for preparing my condo for sale were practical and effective.  He produced good buyer prospects and got my condo sold in a very challenging market environment.   I would recommend his real estate services without hesitation

"When my wife and I found ourselves faced with the prospect of moving from Northern Virginia to the Richmond area, with which we had little prior familiarity, we needed someone to guide us through the process of creating a viable plan on a blank sheet of paper.

I was very fortunate to find Rick through a Web search. He was completely responsive from Day One, listened carefully to our needs, and showed us a wide range of options that were all worthy of consideration. After we made our decision, which was to contract for new construction, he patiently shepherded us through what turned out to be more than a one-year process. We are now settling into our new home, confident that with Rick's help, we made the best possible decision."

Roger and Donna Simak

It was a true pleasure working with him.

He is not only professional but also considerate and kind. He gives prompt response and acted on behalf of me. He is trustworthy and like a long time friend. Thanks, Rick!

" From the first moment that we met Rick Perkins, we knew we had someone who really cared about us.

He was very efficient, knowledgeable, and always pleasantly returned our calls immediately. He provided a beautiful visual tour of our home and when he put it on the market, it was sold the very first day for more than we had asked!!! We attribute that to his dedication and experience. We just relaxed and he handled everything that needed to be done during this very difficult time when the COVID-19 took place and we couldn't get out. You will never find a better realtor who ended up feeling like a new friend! "

Jacqueline and Robert Bratton

Our experience with Mrs.

Wright was very pleasant. She kept us very motivated and was very informative...."only a call away" We achieved our goal and we are very happy and thankful.


Susan stepped in to help us catch a beautiful historic house in the Fan.

She really knows the Richmond real estate market, and helped us make the right decision. She negotiated with the seller to get us the best price. She always picks up the phone, or was quick to call us back. And she went through every step of the process to make sure we were comfortable. Highly recommended.

Susan Is knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with!

She is very responsive and eager to assist at all times. Moving from out of town she was very quick to get me looking at homes within my price range and was quick to schedule and let us see the property. She’s a go getter and a must to use in the area.


We were very fortunate to use Christine after our original realtor moved away for family reasons.

Christine stepped right in and made herself available with whatever needs arose. Christine is very professional and a delight to work with. We would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for a realtor who is responsive, professional and easy to work with.

Rick Perkins was our real estate agent for several weeks during the recent search for and purchase of our home in the Richmond, VA area.

His professional services and personable guidance were invaluable every step of this often stressful process.

Rick has our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for his outstanding services! Tom and Carol Proctor

Karen helped me find the right home after weeks of searching in a competitive seller's market.

She was flexible in scheduling meetings and quick to respond. She was always very professional and understanding. I am grateful for her hard work. Thank you Karen.


Susan Wright has been a great resource from start to finish with the Richmond real estate market.

She took the time to go over the features of each city and was very knowledgeable in highlighting the different amenities. Having moved to the VA market from out of state, not many realtors would call me back. Susan did. If you are hoping for good follow up and thoughtful expertise, she's the one to call. She knows her market and has great resources to help with the entire buying and moving process.


Tawna Hampton is an outstanding real estate professional.

As I began my search for a home in Hanover County, Tawna genuinely listened to my needs and desires in a new home for me and my animals. She had a tough job given my tight budget and requirements, including wanting to live near my sister. Nonetheless, she found several homes to show me and worked around my schedule which was limited due to my husband’s healthcare needs; she was very understanding and empathetic. Tawna has the knowledge and expertise to recognize qualities in a property whether good or bad. She even helped me in selecting builder options as the property we settled on was new construction. Additionally, Tawna identified a few legal errors on my closing documents and worked to make sure the contract was written correctly prior to closing. I highly recommend Tawna to anyone looking for an experienced and friendly agent to support their efforts in finding a new home. Sincerely, Linda Wade

We are very glad that we chose Rick and his team to sell our home as well as find a new 55+ home for us.

After we decided to stage our home in order to take the proceeds to buy our new one, Rich enabled us to sell our house the first day that a beautiful, incredible video of it went on line. We had 5 visits that day, and 3 people offered bids higher than the listed price. He went the extra mile in advertising our property. He did everything possible to have things move smoothly along and responded quickly to every concern and question we had. We had confidence in his wide experience and know that we are fortunate in having chosen him in helping us make the transition from our home of 44 years to a brand new new one in an area we are familiar with. We give him and his team a 5 star rating.

She was responsive and efficient in her service. She was punctual and we were glad that our property was sold within our timeframe. I would refer her to my friends for any future needs.

We found Rick Perkins by looking on a website for 55+ Active Adult Communities in Virginia.

We met Rick at the Clubhouse in Settlers Ridge, VA. He turned out to be one of the most professional, knowledgeable and personable real estate agents that we'd met and decided to work with him. We are very happy that we did! We would also recommend Rick Perkins to anyone who is in the market for housing. Again, Thank You Rick for all your help and support.

Susan is an absolute joy to work with.

She has been working in and around the Richmond area for many years and it is clear when we began to work with her! Susan is enthusiastic, optimistic and driven! When my husband and I began looking, Susan made sure to forward us houses that were coming on the market that she thought we would like or that she thought would sell quickly. She really listened to us and what we wanted! I am an architect and my husband, a contractor - and she knew we were looking for something unique. We LOVED working with Susan and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She was an absolutely excellent advocate for us and made sure we understood every step of the process as first time homebuyers. She made herself available anytime we needed her. It was an absolute pleasure to be her client and her friend


Susan Wright was professional, answered called in a reasonable time, met us on off hours at our convenience, helped walked me through the closing, gave me phone numbers for people I had to get in contact with.


Susan did a wonderful job helping us sell our house and navigating the process of building our new house.

Susan and her team kept us informed at all times.


Susan was very knowledgeable and provided the necessary expertise to answer all the questions that arose when purchasing my home - she was able to help compete all the necessary forms and answer the questions that arose during the offer and counter offer process - she and her assistant were responsive to my requests and were efficient at contacting all the necessary parties - seller's agent, insurance people, bank people and provided them and me with the information that was needed to complete the purchase.

I am an attorney and have been representing sellers and buyers and conducting real estate closings for 30 years - I would highly recommend Susan to anyone - she has the skills to represent sellers or buyers and she makes sure that her duties are done quickly and properly - Susan keeps her clients informed and helps them complete the requests from the bank and others - she cares about her clients and helps them achieve their goal of selling or buying a home


Susan Wright, is a very pleasant person to work with.

Susan worked hand in hand with us in our sale of a home in Essex County. I recommend her as a number one realtor and adviser.


I told Rick early on his attention to detail and professionalism was noticed and appreciated.

Now that we've reached the end I would only add; great way to do business, under promise and over deliver. Thanks The Backmon's

Bob and Nancy Newins

I have dealt with several realtors in my 75 years and I have never had the previledge of working with one like Rick Perkins.

He is so protective of his clients and will give advise based on the wisdom of his years as a Realtor. He wil try to prevent you from making a mistake if he suspects one. His recommendations are spot on. He is as accommodating and responsive as can possibly be expected. With Rick, I met a realtor. With Rick, I gained a friend.

Roy and Kathy Wescott

We could not have had a better person to enable our purchase of our new home in CrossRidge.

She was very professional while demonstrating great empathy for our needs. Using excellent communication skills she guided us through all aspects of the purchase process. Her commitment to us was demonstrated multiple times even after the sale agreement has been finalized. Christine spent entire days with us as we investigated, interviewed and met with multiple contractors to prepare estimates for work after settlement. Nancy and I would highly recommend Christine to any prospective house seller of buyer to represent them in the sale process.

Bob & Nancy Anderson

We want to highly recommend Rick Perkins and his team!

Our home in the Lakeside area (Richmond, VA) was listed and sold quick in May 2020, with no problems. All was smooth and easy. Rick and our direct contact agent, Tawna Hampton are kind and courteous, punctual, and professional, they made us feel like our interest was the top priority. 5 gold stars! Rick and his team also did outstanding work getting us into our newly purchased home in Hanover. Couldn't be happier. Thanks, Sylvia, Missy, and Mike.

Mike Tomillon

Susan took time to answer the questions we had about the process and had available contacts to provide the services that we needed to handle our inspection and closing.

Susan is pleasant person to be around.


"This was our second transaction with Rick and he once again proved his quality.

He greatly assisted us with every aspect of the process, from pricing, to staging, to closing. His market knowledge was exceptional, and he showed kindness to our family during every step. He and his team went above and beyond and we highly recommend them."

Mathew Emmert

I was put in touch with Susan Wright through Zillow.

She responded to my request for information immediately. It was Easter Sunday and I wanted to put off seeing the condo I was interested in to the following day, Susan recommended that we view it that day because she was concerned this property would be sold very quickly. We went to see the property on Sunday and submitted a bid on Monday - just before 4 other people were ready to make an offer. Susan was helpful and stayed on top of all developments during the closing process. A number of repairs had to be made before closing and Susan was persistent on making sure everything was completed. She explained everything to me and kept a timeline for tasks that needed to be done. Will definitely recommend Susan to friends.


Bernice and her team are awesome to work with!

Jennifer Malkus

My husband and I recently worked with Susan for purchasing our house in Midlothian, VA.
