Nolen Real Estate

About us


Nolen Real Estate is a small business with huge goals. We leverage the newest marketing & technology in order to serve our clients better than expectation.

I love livin.  l-i-v-i-n. Each day is a blessing to be alive and to live in a country that we are free.  I think most of the population takes that lightly.  I don’t.  Working and living in this country and the best state there is- Virginia, has many advantages. I love to connect people and network with the folks I know.  I love doing what I do. I like going 110% full blast every day.

I work by referral in my real estate business and I’m a 2nd generation Broker in a family owned company.  We are in it for the ‘long haul’ so we are interested in having very happy customers who come back whenever they have a need.  I enjoy being the first connectors to folks from out of the area and have a great referral base to send to new people in the area.

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Professional and knowledgeable through all aspects of the sale of our home. Might I add under contract the first week! He looked at the home prior to being ready for market and made detailed recommendations room by room which is a nice guideline for preparing a property for sale.
