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 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.

We sought the help of Thomas Nolen in buying our first home. We fell in LOVE with the FIRST house he showed us. Even though he found others for us to look at, it was not necessary. Our entire process was seamless, he set us up with everyone we needed from home inspector to lawyer. We were even able to close earlier than the expected closing date. We had such an amazing experience, I would... read more

Since we are not near by, Nolen Real Estate provided us with an excellent referral for an agent in our area. Thank you!

Thomas was very patient with me over a 3 year period while we tried to find the perfect property. He understood when I need to take a break from looking at properties and worked hard to understand what I was looking for, all the while refining our list.

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.

WMy wife and I currently live in North Carolina so our time with Thomas was limited to the weekends. He saw us on his day off and made sure to spend whatever time we needed. He listened to what we wanted and was able to find us our dream property. I highly recommend Thomas Nolen and would most definately use his services again.

What a wonderful experience my husband and I had both in the purchase of our dream land and with the sale of our former home (which sold in 8 days). Thomas and Drew rose to every challenge that was presented during each process. We most definitely recommend Nolen Real Estate for all real estate needs. Highly professional service combined with outstanding client care is the Nolen gold standard. Thank you Thomas and Drew for your... read more

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!

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.
