James Strum
Long and Foster
About James

After graduating from James Madison University in 2004, James Strum knew he wanted a career that would allow him to help others. At first he didn’t know exactly what that was. He worked part time for the local schools here in the Richmond area helping with fundraising and he also worked part time in the "Kids Zone" at American Family Fitness. After a couple of years, James knew exactly what he wanted to do. James’ father, Sherwood Strum, was a long time realtor himself here in the area, co-owning his own company in the 70's called Strum and Dunnington and then also working for many years thereafter with Porter Vaughan. Sherwood passed away in 1989 after a long battle with cancer, and surely left a legacy behind pertaining to Richmond real estate. So in 2006, James had made up his mind. He would follow in his father’s footsteps, or as he refers to it, his father’s “Big Ole Boots" because of the tremendous impact his father left behind. James met with several firms before deciding on Long and Foster in July of 2006. There, he learned all about the residential real estate world from the ground up and in his very first full year in 2007 he was named "Rookie of the Year" for his branch. By 2012, James was the "Top Individual" agent with Long and Foster out of 1000+ agents in 18 offices throughout the region. With continued success, James had to ensure that each client was getting exactly what he built his book of business on…providing the highest level of customer service through honesty, knowledge base, and making sure the clients best interest was his first priority. And in 2013 THE STRUM Group was born!! James knew that creating something that was bigger than him required a special team model in order to maintain the correct level of service for each client, every time.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Petersburg?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Petersburg?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Petersburg, VA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Petersburg?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell 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. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
