  • Ryan listed and sold my home

      Ryan and his team were great. He was very helpful in getting the property ready to market. Also very responsive to questions. His team kept the process of gathering and circulating documents efficient. Happy with the sale price and Ryan vetted the potential buyers well.

    • Ryan did an extraordinary job helping us list & sell our home. We were under contract for a 1031 exchange and our first Agent disappeared. Called Ryan on a Saturday, he rekeyed the house himself, and in 24 hours had us on the market, and closed 2 weeks for $8000 above the asking price! We felt he was an answer to our prayers! Within hours of our initial phone call to him, he had already taken pictures & had our home listed at just the right price point, fielded multiple offers, battled a wasp nest- and got it under contract with day 3. The showings started that very night! He handled the closing while on Vacation. Highly dedicated and can't speak highly enough. We highly recommend Ryan because he's easy to work with, & he gets the job done!

    • Ryan and his team helped us buy our first home and sell it first e years later. We made a smart buy and sold at a great price. Ryan is available all the time day or night during the sale. We bought our first home from him, he sold that one for full price, and helped us buy our new forever home with Ryan. He consistently exceeded our expectations. Allison was also amazing coordinating all of the inspections and helping me when things came up with both properties. I would highly recommend this team.

      - The Bouwens Family, Goochland VA
    • Ryan has done a masterful job to get my house sold. He was direct, to the point and absolutely knew what he was talking about. He kept me completely informed throughout the sales process and provided guidance where needed. In addition to his business skills he also has a great personality. Absolutely recommend Ryan and his team to help sell (or buy) a house

      - Hans deVries, The Highlands Chesterfield VA
    • We contacted Ryan a couple of months prior to when we would potential list our home. He stayed in contact each month until we had the final word on an out-of-state job offer. At our earliest convenience, he met with us to finalize the listing, promptly scheduled the photographer, and immediately placed a sign in our yard. His execution was spot-on (exactly what WE needed and wanted). His recommended list price was right on the money. He listened to our needs and responded appropriately. He handled negotiations with utmost professionalism and expertise. And, of course, his team was in total cohesion with the process. Communication from Ryan and his team was timely and efficient. Our home selling process was a breeze with Ryan and his team.....which meant we could focus on prepping for our big move across the country. Thanks to Allison, Ryan, and the rest of the team for ensuring our sale was seamless!

      - Nicole Westing, Midlothian VA, relocated to California
    • Ryan and his team were absolutely great to work with! They sold 2 houses for us in the past year and both occasions were extremely easy with Ryan. He and his team, specifically Allison, were available day and night to help and assist with anything needed throughout the process! In my opinion the worst part of the selling process is the home inspection/ repairs, Ryan has many trusted contractors he uses throughout this process and they even handle all the scheduling of repairs for you! The contractors used are always priced very fair and get the job done right! I would recommend Ryan Sanford and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Ryan and his team were great answering all my questions, communicating with me at every turn and most of all selling the house in less than 2 days. I definitely recommend Ryan Sanford and his team. Thank you very much! Bill A.
