Joelle Meintzschel
Quest Virginia Realty, Llc
About Joelle

I am the Principal Broker of Quest Virginia Realty, LLC and started my own brokerage in January 2007. I have an interior design Bachelor’s degree and worked for one of the top architectural/interior design firms in the Washington D.C. area. My interior design experience is an asset as I have helped Seller clients stage their home to sell and enlightened Buyer clients in seeing opportunities they may not have on their own in regards to space planning walls, remodeling kitchens, etc. I have lived in Charlottesville since 1993 and my husband and I have loved raising our 2 daughters here. I served on the Board of Directors for 3 years at the Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS from 2010 to 2012. I received the Green designation through the Green Resource Council. My “green” education is useful when dealing with a client who wants or needs to utilize more “green” products for health concerns.

About Amanda

Born and raised and Charlottesville, Virginia I am a 2nd generation real estate broker. My father was an area broker who was the marketing director for many of the major neighborhoods in the Charlottesville area. I know the area... at one time or another I was either attending open houses in these communities, arranging furniture on marketing materials, a real estate assistant or on the sales team myself. For several years I worked for an area property management firm that managed over 1,000+ apartments around Charlottesville. In 2016, I came back to general real estate full time and I have teamed up with The Savage Team who is consistently in the top 20 agents in the entire MLS and #1 in our Market Center!

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Charlottesville?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Charlottesville is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home.
