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!

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.

Thomas is a outstanding real estate agent. He handled the sell of our home with outstanding professionalism and respect towards our needs. Thomas handled all request by the buyer he also did exactly what he said he would do. Now that is what makes an outstanding Real Estate Agent.

Thomas Nolen was very helpful while I was looking to purchase some land while still living hours away from Appomattox. He gladly visited the property that I was interested in and took several high-quality videos that he was able to share with me via YouTube. Thomas and his team were very professional and good communicators. I really appreciate the service and support that they provided for me during my property search.

I remember meeting Thomas when I first moved to Virginia in 1999, driving all over Appomattox county, Thomas waving to EVERY car we passed, and finally finding the perfect forever home and then, in typical form, calling Thomas to list that home and another and so on and so on!!!I believe we've bought and sold 4 times now and wouldn't think of using any other agent!!!

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 was very professional and helpful in selling our farm property. Just the right mixture of staying in contact and being helpful. His knowledge of the market and the players in that market is excellent. I recommend Thomas to anyone looking to sell their property I this area.

Thomas Nolen is the best realtor in the state, hands down! I have never dealt with a harder working realtor. We have bought with him twice over the last eight years and hope to again in the future! His knowledge of the area and local professionals is unparallelled. On our the last transaction, he stuck with us through an extremely long purchase and saw it through to the end for very... read more

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.

My wife and I are in the process of buying a duplex using Nolen Real Estate. Thomas and Drew found us an incredible deal and have been making the whole process SO easy for us. Their expertise and honesty combine to make an experience where we can be confident we're getting taken care of. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for real estate services.

Thomas is by far the best agent we have ever worked with. Listed and sold our riverfront lot extremely quickly. Great contacts to assist with settlement. We have also used Thomas to purchase a farm which went seamlessly.
