The River City Real Estate Review

By David C. Wingfield

Welcome to the River City Real Estate review! Here’s where we fill you in on the latest happenings in the world of RVA real estate.

News & Happenings

  • Chris Porter of Wagner Realty would like to acknowledge an error in his advertisement appearing in Sunday’s edition of the Richmond Times-Dispatch. His new listing of a 5BR/3BA colonial is located in Hanover County, not Hangover County, as indicated in Sunday’s ad. He isn’t completely sure how this happened but is almost certain that his 17-year-old stepson Tyler has something to do with it. “That kid hates me,” said Porter.
  • Ricky Medford of TownHome Realty has recently completed the sale of the old abandoned building located at Hull Street and Tavish Avenue. He posted on Facebook regarding the sale, “I want to thank everyone who told me that it was impossible, it could never be done, and that I’d never sell it. That includes my brother Frank. You suck, I hate you, and you’re not invited to Renee’s birthday party at Maggiano’s next month.”
