Central Virginia Real Estate

About Nolen Real Estate

I’ve been in the business for 22 awesome years and grew up in a real estate family (Mom and Dad).

I started selling when I was 23 years old but grew up scraping and painting old signs and mowing yards of vacant listings for my parent’s listings when I was a kid. Now I have taken on a great role of offering country property to folks from all over the world.

I enjoy selling in our “Mayberry-like” small town of Appomattox just a hop, skip and jump to the city of Lynchburg.

In the past, I finished in the top 10 of United Country agents three times, including the #1 spot. Since then, I opened up my own independent Brokerage and have been the top agent multiple years in the Appomattox area for residential and land sales.

If you want to work with a professional who is coached through the Buffini system, has life goals, and is always eager to learn, I’d love to work with you!

He patiently added to my file each time I decided I wasnt ready.He without a doubt was there every step of the way this last time when I asked for the for sale sign.Couldnt have gotten through this process without hia expertise and friendship.

Thomas was an active agent in the selling of our land. He sent us timely updates concerning the viewing of the property. He worked around our schedules and that is greatly appreciated.

Thomas is the best realtor I know. Always courteous, knowledgeable, and prompt with answers to questions. He works hard for his clients and goes "above and beyond" to give the best service around. We have used him for two transactions, and found him to be tops in his field.

Thomas Nolen sold me a beautiful piece of property over a decade ago. I lived out of town so I relied upon him to be my eyes and ears. He understood my requirements so well that I bought the property sight unseen (except pictures and his verbal description). I always advise friends to use him. In addition, I have called upon him for local information. And I love every interaction with him! He is... read more

Thomas Nolan and his assistant, Drew, were so kind to us and they were so informative. Selling my parent's home was hard, but they were compassionate to our situation. Never having sold a home before Thomas took the time to explain everything without degrading our intelligence. They know their stuff that is for sure. Anyone can sell houses for a living, but not everyone can do it with the friendliness and... read more

Thomas and Drew were great to work with. Whenever I needed something they would have it to me in no time. When working with them it feels like your working with friends I will refer them to everyone so their buying/selling experience is just as great as mine was. I will continue to do business with them in the future. I only have positive comments towards them.

We just recently purchased our first home. Drew was very responsive and helpful in finding the perfect home for our family. He thoroughly explained each step of the process and fully answered any questions we had. He also coordinated inspections and other appointments, which was a huge help during all the craziness of moving! We will definitely be using Drew again in the future!
