Cole Atkins

  • Cole helped me buy a home

      Cole was awesome to work with! Very communicative and thorough. His knowledge of how homes are built when we were visiting the potentials was invaluable for us. He always had great input on potential risk.

    • Cole helped me buy a home

        Cole was super knowledgeable and taught us a lot during the process of buying our first home. With his help we were able to get the house we loved thanks to his helping us with putting in a great offer. Even after we bought the house we went through Coles recommendation to help get our porch redone and they also did a wonderful job. Cole is an amazing realtor and will always get my recommendation when someone asks for an amazing realtor.

      • Cole impressed us from the first conversation we had with him. He made it clear he was here for us and that he would make things happen - which he certainly did. Despite his age, Cole has extensive knowledge and experience of the housing market in the greater-Richmond area, and a great network as well. He knew the questions to ask us to better understand what we may be looking for and sent us great listings the moment they became available. When we landed on the listing we wanted to pursue, Cole aggressively secured a showing on short notice while accommodating our busy work schedules and limited availability traveling in from out of state. He helped us move quickly in a fast-paced housing market and made us feel comfortable with the decisions we were making on short notice. He talked us through the process and all of the documents that seem overwhelming to us being first-time homebuyers. Cole worked very well with our lender and was always prompt on the response, I dont recall any instance where we may have been waiting on a response from him for too long. He gave us great contacts that know how to keep up with the quick pace of the Richmond housing market and even sent a contractor out to help us troubleshoot a couple of unexpected challenges we faced after we moved in. He negotiated well with the listing agent and even negotiated a way to recover some of the costs we knew we would need to make to improve the energy efficiency of the home. Even after we bought the home, Cole didnt stop working for us. He followed through and checked in on us periodically, providing some additional guidance and support that was well above the call of duty. Cole was great to work with, he kept his word, and he made it fun along the way. He has a remarkable work ethic and several times went out of his way to make accommodations for a few special requests we had along the way. We will be recommending Cole to our friends and family that consider buying a home in the Richmond area without a doubt!!

      • I came across Cole when submitting my information on a property I was interested in, and boy were we lucky to find him. As a young first time homebuyer, I felt connected with Cole early on as we are about the same age. That said, if his youth concerns you at all, don't let it. Cole's knowledge of the market, along with his determination to serve your best interests, is unparalleled. He was always available to answer my questions in a timely manner (there were a lot). When it came time to submit an offer, he had them ready for me to sign in no time. When it came time to having repairs done, Cole was on top of everything. One repair involved patching a piece of a flat roof to prevent further leakage. The next thing I know, I am receiving a call from Cole telling me he just climbed on the roof and poured water on the spot that had been patched in order to expose it was done incorrectly. By doing this, Cole saved us thousands of dollars in repairs down the line. Long story short, I cannot imagine going through this homebuying experience without Cole by our side. If you have the chance to work with him, do not hesitate.

      • I was looking to relocate to the Richmond, Virginia region from Northern Virginia and I am so glad I found Cole Atkins. From the first time we spoke on the phone to the day I closed on my home, Cole provided top notch realtor services. He found me the home of my dreams which has everything on my wish list and SO MUCH MORE. I was impressed with his knowledge about not only the Richmond area, but HVAC systems, the bones of a home, and little tidbits about the County I now live in. He clearly does his research and I love that he is sharp, very responsive, and has a great head on his shoulders. I definitely foresee using Cole again for my future real estate transactions. He is highly recommended. Keep up the great work, Cole!!

      • From start to finish Cole was amazing. The entire process he was super helpful with his knowledge of the market and houses in general. I will recommend Cole to anyone I know who is looking for a house in a heartbeat. Not to mention he has a he knows plenty of connections for getting things repaired or added to the house.

      • Cole is an amazing Realtor. After having frustrations from lack of support and communication with a part-time Real Estate agent we turned to Cole. Cole is very thorough during tours and has a passion of sharing his knowledge with his clients. Upon making offers, Cole had extensive experience which allowed him to use my budget and contingencies to create my best possible offer. When negotiating, Cole stayed in touch with myself along with the selling team to counter any offer that stood in our way. Throughout closing procedures, Cole made the process clear and concise and overall my home-buying experience was generally stress free. Thank you Cole for all youve done, I look forward to working with you again.

      • I can only repeat similar words that have already been written about Cole. He is an amazing agent!Cole was helpful, informative, patient, honest, personable... the list of his positive qualities goes on. In short he made an unexpected first time home purchase an enjoyable experience. He answered every question big and small, was quick to respond to messages and worked so efficiently that I was able to move into my new home (YAY!) just in time to start a new job.If you are looking to do anything home related, Cole will either help you tremendously or recommend someone who is equally awesome.

      • Experience with Cole was great from start to finish. If was a bump road but Cole make sure everything was staying together! Had work with another realtors before Cole and it wasnt the same knowledge As Cole had and the effort he put in to make his customer be happy and successful. Thank him for getting the deal down in two months and having me in a fresh new remodel home!

        - Gabe
      • Cole was very knowledgeable at every property we went to see. He genuinely cares about all of his clients in finding the home of their dreams. Hes easy to get along with and once you tell him what you want, he runs with it! Hes down to earth and the best realtor that weve encountered in our years of the home buying process! Choose Cole!

        - Bri & Ross
      • My home buying experience with Cole Atkins was exceptional. After spending 25 years in executive mortgage banking, I can honestly say that Cole Atkins is one of the most knowledgeable, responsive, impressive, Real Estate Professionals I've had the privilege of working with. He's sharp, has incredible attention to detail, and is a great negotiator. I can't recommend him highly enough

        - Dani
      • This was my first purchase of a home. There is no other agent I would have rather worked with. This guy HUSTLES. Due to this being my first home, we had a moderate budget. Cole treated me like I was a million dollar buyer. He would find time last minute if there was a property that we wanted to see. If we stepped into a house and it didn't fit my criteria, Cole was the first one to say, "NEXT!". He knew exactly what we were looking for. Cole's responsiveness, dedication to his clients, and humor are what sold me on him. All he cared about was making sure that I got what I wanted. If you want someone to understand your needs, work around the clock, and get you a great deal, this is who you need to work with. Thank you for a phenomenal first time home buying experience. We will definitely be working with him when it is time to sell and buy!

      • Thank you Cole so much you your patience and genuine connection with us when it came to house hunting! Being first time home buyers, my husband and I didnt know much of what to do or what comes next, but Cole made it so smooth and easy for us. He answered any and all of our questions, even the ones we thought were too common sense of a question to ask. He never made us feel smaller and explained everything thoroughly. Thanks to Cole, we were able to buy our 1st home with out any frustrations or negative moments. Cole was always positive about everything! -The Ramirez Family

      • Mr Cole Atkins was very knowledgeable of the market and housing of the area. I trusted his opinion and advise as a First Time Home Buyer. I would easily recommend him to any other First Time Home Buyer as he was quick to respond to questions and quick to provide new house listing. His availability to show houses was great too. Five Stars without a doubt.

        - Teddy & Crystal
      • Cole is very knowledgeable about the Richmond area and its real estate market. He took great care of us when we decided to buy a house in Richmond; his service is genuinely top-notch! He drove a hard bargain and got us a great deal on our home. Overall, he made everything about the entire process super easy and we love our new home and neighborhood.

        - Annie & Ben
      • Cole Atkins is simply the best! Cole guided us and took care of us throughout our new home purchase and we trusted him implicitly throughout the process. Cole is responsive, he is thorough and he is the master negotiator. Cole organized the survey, the inspiration, the contractors and he was on a ladder, himself, in our crawl space to ensure all work was complete before closing. We havent purchased a home in over 20 years and Cole was so patient and so knowledgeable with our million and one questions. We were so impressed with our experience buying our dream house that weve asked Cole to list our current home and we know he will do an outstanding job and get us the price we want. We highly recommend Cole Atkins and The Strum Group to our friends, family and everyone in Richmond! Simply the best!

      • Ive heard nightmares of being a first-time homebuyers, but Cole made the process very stress-free and was very knowledgeable on the area we were looking in. He will look out for your best interest at every corner! He helped me find contractors at great rates and actually helped me make a good decision on my first home by identifying common pitfalls and even explaining why he didn't recommend certain properties. Even after I bought the property, he's continued to give me advice and help me settle in. I'll 100% be calling him in the future, and you should too!

        - Trevor
      • We feel so lucky to have found Cole in the home buying process! As first time home buyers, our knowledge was very limited. Cole did an amazing job helping us understand the entire process. He has a great store of knowledge on the market and on the general construction of homes. When we went to view homes he inspected them top to bottom. He even got in the crawl spaces under the house to see what kind of condition the structure was in. He was incredibly responsive getting back to us all times day or night on questions and concerns. Cole did a great helping us structure our bid for the house we wanted. There were 2 other competing bids for the house, and he set up our offer in a way that we ended up winning the bid with very little back and forth. The entire process we felt like Cole had our best interests in mind and we couldnt be happier with how everything worked out. Cole is a huge asset to have on your team in the home buying process, and we highly recommend working with him!

        - Rebecca & Rob
      • My wife and I purchased our first house recently with Cole as our realtor and he made the entire process as easy as possible for us. With his help and knowledge of my profession as a contractor we were able to submit a creative offer that ultimately was accepted by the sellers. We will be using Cole when we move again!

        - Andrew & Emily
      • We stumbled across Cole and quickly realized we could not have dreamed up a better realtor. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and even more important - was very honest with us. There is no doubt that we would not be moving into our dream home if it wasn't for his intelligence and enthusiasm. We highly highly recommend Cole !

        - Olmsted family
      • Cole will make your home buying experience both fun and meaningful! He brings charisma and energy to the table along with practicality and direct honesty. As first-time home buyers, my fiancee and I needed quite a bit of direction and Cole took the time to educate us about the process. He listened to what we wanted and did an outstanding job of negotiating price and other conditions when we put an offer down on our home. More especially, Cole was very open and honest with us when it came time to make decisions. If there were any issues in a house, Cole was quick to make us aware of them and was very thorough during our tours. This guy is sharp, honest and with his prior experience, he brings a practical knowledge about repairs and other things I would have totally overlooked otherwise. Hire Cole and he'll bring you home

        - Brian & Carly
      • Cole was awesome through the entire process of buying our first home! He kept us on top of everything that needed to be done and updated us on a regular basis on how things were progressing. He was a huge help in negotiating terms and even provided us with contacts for redoing our flooring and getting some contracting work done! Highly recommend Cole if youre looking to buy a home in Richmond

        - Sam & Ethan
      • We had a wonderful experience working with Cole. He was a great choice for a young couple buying their first home. His knowledge of the Richmond, VA neighborhoods helped us find our ideal location. He was very receptive to what we like and disliked in various properties, and showed us a home that met our needs that was well within our price range

        - Christina & Michael
      • Cole was amazing! He was on top of everything, anticipated our needs, and looked out for our best interest. His knowledge of the housing market is impressive. I didn't have to worry about anything as long as I knew he was handling it. Thanks Cole for helping fulfill our dream!
