Tell Us Your Story

Debbie was such a joy to work with from start to finish.

From her quick response time to her local knowledge, we truly couldn't have asked for a better agent. We are settling nicely into our new home and have her to thank for such a pleasant home buying experience.

Sara Klein

From the moment we met her, we have been impressed with Britni.

She has an easy, approachable manner. Actually listened to our description of our next house and was proactive in the search. Furthermore, when we found the right house, she stayed on top of the negotiations and documentations. This was extremely important as we were purchasing a house while living several states away. Even after the sale, we have been able to contact her for information and she still responds with the same great attitude and sense of urgency.

Janet Fields (HR Manager)

Lori was amazing to work with.

She kept us informed every step of the way and did everything she could to help us. She showed us every house we wanted to look at even if it was late at night. She had professional pictures taken to help sell my house. I would recommend Lori to anyone!!

chris jorgensen

Debbie Martin did an amazing job representing us in the purchase of our dream home.

This is our 2nd opportunity to work with Debbie and she guided us each time to ensure that we got what we were looking for. There was a lot of competition for our recent purchase and I honestly don't believe we would have been successful without the above and beyond efforts that Debbie took on our behalf. She kept us informed of any and all changes throughout the process and responded almost immediately to any questions or issues that arose. Anybody seeking to buy or sell a home should consider using Debbie to represent them in the process. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job.

Joseph Leach (Home Owner)

Mike did a great job keeping me updated on the market.

When it came time to buy Mike was in touch the entire process making sure we got the deal done. Would highly recommend .

Lee Ulanski

Mike listened to what we wanted in a house and immediately started looking at houses with those on our list.

His recommendations when putting in a offer has helped us get our houses not once but twice in the past 5 years!

Brittany Wilson

Amy was wonderful.

I would send many homes to her that I wanted to see and she would get back to me with the information on it and a set up times to go see the houses. With me having a small widow of looking for a house and needing to be out of my other house, Amy worked hard and gave me all the information that I needed to get into my current home. Would definitely recommend Amy to friends and family.

Carlos Davis

Frank was a great partner in selling my home.

I felt like I was in control and making all the important decisions, while he handled all the details of advertising, photography, and paperwork. He was always available by phone. Frank was very low-key and did not display the aggressiveness sometimes associated with realtors. In all - a great partner.

Kathleen T Seaford

Very professional!

We were on a timeline to get our house sold and Frank worked very hard to make it happen. Would highly recommend!!

Caroll Register

Just wanted to say "thank-you" much for all the help and patience with the Oakview house and getting us settled on the current house as well.

You have been knowlegeable in all the processes in selling and buying a home which made the process easier for us. Appreciate everything!

Jason & Cara K (clients)

Debbie Martin was recommended by a friend in the area.

After getting expert advice from her, I put our cottage in her hands and on the housing market. It sold in three days. Debbie Martin expertly led me through the entire process from accepting an offer to the day of closing. Thanks, Debbie. You help simplify everything.

Sarah E Savage (Homeowner)

Debbie was wonderful.

She refers you to the best in the business for mortgage, inspection, etc because she really cares. She helps you find a home you will love and makes the process easy and simple. Great for a first-time homebuyer. Will work with Debbie anytime we buy and gladly refer her.

Zillow Client

This is my fourth time using Charlene as my realtor.

Twice I have bought property through her and twice I have sold property with her. She is knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and can make some extremely stressful times much less stressful. I am looking forward to using her for one last move! I highly recommend her!

Amy Page Hauser

Frank is a true professional!

He is extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Frank is very quick to respond and passes on information expeditiously. We have used Frank as our agent before and will certainly use him again!

Andrew & Jill Smith

Debbie was great!

After putting our house on the market with Debbie, our home sold on just two and a half weeks! If you are looking for an agent who gets the job done, then call Debbie! We highly recommend her!

Zillow Client

If you are in the market for a trustworthy, reliable and hard working realtor Britni Brown is the one for you and your family.

She worked diligently in selling my home and was willing to meet with inspectors and tradesmen on her own time because I now live out of state and was unable to meet appointments. I'm so grateful for all of her hard work and also her compassion for all that I was going through trying to sell a home out of state.

Susan M Theodore

Working with Debbie was a joy.

Especially since the majority of my home search was conducted via long distance. She took photos, did video walk throughs all while putting up with a somewhat difficult, persistent, picky client. She pulled through for me and found the perfect house. She's very patient, considerate, smart and made the process as swift and easy as possible. Thanks Debbie!

Sandra Yoemans

Rodney went above and beyond to help us obtain our diamond in the rough.

We highly recommend his expertise when it comes to finding your dream home and sealing the deal!

Abbey Allen

I have known Mike for almost 30 years and in that time he has handled every real estate transaction I have made.

He has been the listing agent on 3 sales and the buying agent on 2 purchases. He is equally adept at both roles, but he is especially good at getting the almost always endless list of things done that are needed to close a sale. He is also very savvy and understands current markets very well. All of my home sales have sold and closed very quickly after getting to market. I highly recommend Mike for whatever your real estate needs may be.

Barry Williams

It was a pleasure to work with Jeanne Hockaday on the sale of my aunt’s property.

She was very professional and made the process very easy. My aunt and I are living in a different state and she set up everything that needed to be completed before and during closing. Jeanne is highly recommended by both my aunt and myself.

Michelle Foster

I would definitely recommend Trudy Cunningham to be seller's agent for property listing, negotiations, the detail issues (soil, permits, surveys, reports, and advertising for multiple lots), and the final closing process with attorney and title company.

She had shown patience and knowledge in dealing with our may questions and unknowns which we encountered from start to finish. Again, Thanks so much Trudy.

Frank J. SHemenski (Retired Mechanical Engineer)

We are so excited that we finally found our dream home.

Debbie Martin was AWESOME!! If we needed a water guy she had one there in 10 minutes if I needed a home inspector she had one which we used several times in our search. She is a go getter with vast knowledge in her field. If not for her we would not ever gotten into our home. But the best thing that I most valued about her is ANYTIME I texted her or called her she ALWAYS responded. Thank you so much Debbie we appreciated everthing you did for us!

Zillow Client

Debbie is a pleasure to work with.

We have worked with her for several years and she always works extremely hard to find what we are looking for. I highly recommend her services and can assure you she will provide you the kind of unmatched service you are looking for.

Emit Stover

Working with Norman was a wonderful experience.

It was quick easy such a super nice guy.would highly recommend

Linda Williams

We had tried to sell our property thru several firms prior to finding Debbie.

Anyone trying to sell undeveloped land in Mathews County right now knows the pain points it's a tough market and very few parcels have sold in the last few years. First, she helped us adjust pricing according to the market. Shortly after listing with her, we had interested buyers who made an offer. Next, various issues arose which needed to be addressed in order to close. Debbie rolled up her sleeves and got to work, helping us address the requirements and concerns with a positive attitude, a sense of humor, incredible perseverance, and toughness when needed. Largely because of her efforts, the sale has now closed and we have ended that chapter in our lives.

D Bell

Debbie helped us find a wonderful home in the Hampton Roads area during this extremely difficult market upturn!

Debbie was available 24/7 and was quick to jump on homes/schedule tours with agents as soon as they were on the market. Not only was she quick with listings as soon as they came on the market, she was also extremely knowledgeable on all things inspection and contract details. She recommended a wonderful home inspector and dug through the details of our offers/contracts so that we got everything we wanted in our home. We highly recommend Debbie Martin for you home-buying needs!

Kristen Duprey

Ira Millen is an extraordinary individual & business man.

A man of integrity & very strong business mind. He really knows his field. I feel so blessed to have met him.

Stacey Hartman (Real Estate Developer )

Debbie helped us buy our new house and sell our existing one.

If your in the market for a new house or need to sell your current home, we highly recommend Debbie. If we ever decide to sell or buy again , we will definitely turn to Debbie.

Mark & Susan Cockerham

Very flexible and made whatever worked for me, work for him.

As a first time homeowner, this was a daunting task, but he made it so easy!


Charlene did a great job and kept us informed throughout the closing process.

Professional and I would recommend her to other home buyers.

Michelle Kanady

Frank has been most helpful during my recent home purchase.

He continues to keep in touch offering advice and doing small favors, as I prepare to occupy my new Virginia home. I can confidently recommend him.

Joseph Payne

We were referred by a friend to Debbie.

I am super grateful for the referral. Debbie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made the selling process extremely easy and almost seamless. My family and I were able to sell our home fast and with a profit that is nothing short of miraculous. Thank you Debbie for your dedicated time and professionalism. We are blessed to have the privilege of working with you. Thank you for all of your time and efforts.

Amber Falin

Thank you for being a part of Market Days and helping to make it successful!

Emily (Director MCVIC)

Having Debbie handle our home sale was a real blessing.

She went above and beyond at every turn to be helpful and make things easier for us as we are not from her area. I would highly recommend her for her professionalism… she is an outstanding realtor and I cannot thank her enough??

Susan Dawson

Frank was on my side from beginning to end!

!! He is very easy to talk with and answers all questions. If he does not know an answer, he will get it! I would certainly recommend him to anyone in need of his services!

Linda M. Meredith (Retired)

Britni was great to work with.

She impressed us with her knowledge of home construction and local area things that we might be interested in. She worked very quickly to get us in houses that we were interested in for viewings. Sometimes as quickly as “how soon can you meet me there? I can show it to you right now.” She worked very hard to help find the right house. When it came to making an offer all the way through closing, she took care of everything. Even after closing she checked in with us just to make sure everything was good. Highly recommend Britni Brown!

Todd Meinecke

Debbie made a potentially long and difficult sale go quickly and painlessly.

We had to sell from out of state and she bridged the gap. Very professional and would recommend her to anyone!

Derek Liechty

Debbie was incredible to work with.

With this being my first home purchase, I was full of questions. Not only was she very knowledgeable, but very patient. She walked me through the process from beginning to end and I always felt she had my interests as her number one priority. Debbie is a wonderful ally to have the real estate

Zillow Client

Mike (aka Coach Miller) did an absolutely amazing job helping me buy my first home!

He was originally my field hockey coach back in the 2010s and I knew he was someone I could trust to help guide me through this incredibly daunting process! He was incredibly responsive to all my communications, by both email and text. Once we met and discussed my home preferences, he set up multiple showings matching my needs until we found the one I loved. He was able to help me through the offer and negotiation process. During the period from offer acceptance to closing, he remained a vital support. He helped with the home inspection, repairs, the appraisal, and collaborated with so many different parties, from the seller to the mortgage lender to the inspector to my closing attorney. If there was ever a needed third-party, he pointed me to trusted professionals and helped make the process as painless as possible. Even after closing, he has been available to help with questions! I cannot recommend him enough!

Rebecca Thompson

Debbie Martin is absolutely the best.

She worked endlessly to find the right home and location that was best for me. Debbie was always available and explained each process with ease. She worked tirelessly on my behalf and her negotiating skills were clearly visible throughout each process. She did an excellent job and far exceeded all of my expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell their home.

She readily responds to my texts, emails, & phone calls. She makes you feel like you are on her team & is advocating for you. I highly recommend her!

Rachel Mizzell

Our experience with Debbie could not have been any better.

We had tried to sell through another agent without any luck. Debbie took over and got the job done. Her experience, knowledge of Real Estate especially in Gloucester Co and her positive and outgoing personality and attitude all played a part in the listing and selling of our home. At the time, we were out of the area and Debbie kept in close contact with us keeping us up to date on everything going on right up to the closing. We were able to reach her any time and she responded very quickly to our texts, emails, or phone calls. Debbie was excellent to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.

Lamonzo Scott

Lori was such an amazing realtor to work with!

He is A+agent. He communicated very well. Anything we needed he took care of very willing. Because of Mike we got first choice fo the place to live. Therefore, we would highly recommend Mike to anyone.



Debbie Martin has demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and knowledge in working with her as our Realtor. My husband and I bought our first home with the help of Debbie. She made the experience both easy and truly a pleasurable memory we will cherish forever. As 20-somethings just starting out, we lowered our expectations to agree with what we saw as reality- having to buy a home that was a "fixer-upper." Boy, did Debbie exceed in finding us not only a beautiful home, but the home of our dreams and all within our budget! Her local knowledge of the Gloucester area is fantastic. We have lived in Gloucester for a short while and she greatly assisted us in staying within the town we love and call home. She also helped us to transition with tasks such as moving our electricity and getting set up with our mail carrier. Her process expertise is second to none. She understands the ins and outs of the trade and any issues or hiccups that arose, she solved them with ease. In the home-buying process, there is always the potential for issues involving procedures and paperwork. With Debbie, she easily attacked and solved every challenge that came our way. Her responsiveness made us feel both valued and respected. She was easily accessible by text, phone, and email. Every interaction with her was promptly responded to and she calmed any nerves we had about hurdles that existed. We felt very cared for and looked after. Her negotiation skills demonstrated her knowledge in her field. She was able to honestly tell us if the items we requested were within or out of reach and once she requested them, each was granted. Her ability to be candid with us in what we could and could not reasonably get definitely helped us to keep our expectations realistic. We would, without hesitation, highly recommend Debbie to serve any person looking for a home. As I mentioned earlier, as first-time homebuyers, we had such a positive experience that transitioning into homeownership became a joy, rather than a burden. Debbie is both professional and kind, which makes her the perfect choice for anyone seeking a property. She is tenacious and will not stop until her clients are happy. We will use no one but her when we need a new home in a few years, as a result of our family continuing to grow!

Adrienne Barker

Thomas Gatess

Debbie Martin of Virginia Country Real Estate is an OUTSTANDING agent and exceptionally knowledgeable in all areas of real estate.

She helped us find our dream retirement home and was most helpful in making it a smooth transition. She is attentive to all the details required to help a client settle-in a new home, and she goes the extra mile to assure that all business runs smoothly.

Alice Payne

Jeanne has now represented us for two real estate transactions with successful results both times.

She does the homework to help owners decide how to properly price a property for sale. Our home recently sold in two days at full asking price. I give Jeanne my highest recommendation.

Joan Perkins

I would highly recommend Debbie for anyone looking for a home in the Gloucester and surrounding area.

We were re-locating from NY, and hired Debbie as our Buyer's Broker. She was amazing! She worked very hard on our behalf. She was efficient, professional, very knowledgeable, and fun to work with. Not only did she select great properties to look at, she coordinated with me, my sister and brother-in-law to view properties. I could not be at all viewings, so my sister and her husband would look at the homes, send me video's, etc. Debbie was very good at relaying the good things, as well as the concerns about each property. When we made an offer, she stayed on top of the status and kept things moving along. She also explained how things were different in VA (ie: the use of heat pumps), and what to look for. She kept on top of all the inspections and made sure I had phone numbers needed to switch utilities over. I trusted her experience, her advice, her recommendations and I'm glad I did. She went above and beyond to help make our home purchase, and relocation as easy as possible. Thank you so much are the best!

Bonnie Marvin

Debbie is a true professional who knows her job very well.

She was able to answer all of our questions quickly and honestly. Things that she needed to check on were done in a timely manner and without us needing to remind her. She worked very well with the buyers agent. The photos she took of our home looked excellent. We listed our home for sale 4/20/16 and had a great offer on 4/25/16. Without a doubt, we would call Debbie for any future real estate needs we have!!

Kristen Dise

Amy was amazing from the first time I reached out!

Zillow Client


Debbie Martin represents the gold standard of realtors. We are extremely pleased to provide this recommendation. We are so appreciative of her dedication and meticulous attention to every aspect regarding the sale of our property. As we were selling an out-of-state estate which presented with significant challenges, some evident and others unforeseen, being able to rely on her professionalism, integrity, counsel and patience was invaluable and cannot be overstated. Debbie Martin’s high level of skills and knowledge regarding the real estate industry were applied to all details concerning the property, the community, the timeline and the documentation required to complete the transaction. She left no stone unturned; no detail was dismissed. Debbie Martin was very patient and accessible; she regularly communicated with and updated us during the process. We cannot imagine a more consummate real estate professional.

KL Reeder (Seller)

He is the consummate professional - my question always is “Would you hire this individual again” and the answer is a resounding “yes, without a doubt”.

Marcia Hargis

Debbie Martin is absolutely amazing!

She went above and beyond with her real estate advice. She listened to our concerns and came up with solutions. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable thru our sale process. She thought of every detail thru the listing, sale and closing of our property. We would not hesitate to use her again for any future real estate needs.

Kathy Epling

Britni is simple words was a great asset in my real estate purchase.

Whenever, l needed something Britni was always responsive. From day one we connected and during the entire process l felt very comfortable with Britni as my real estate agent. If l had to do it again I would request Britni by name. Thank you.


Dedicated to her clients and extremely knowledgeable about the housing markets inside and outside of Gloucester County.

Fantastic ability to negotiate and great communication. Super impressed with her ability to slow us down and explain situations when we were moving too quickly for our own good. Would absolutely recommend.

David Angles

Frank presented us with what he believed our house would sale for.

Estimate was spot on. House sold in a few days after being listed. Frank kept us informed with all that was necessary to close. Very professional and not pushy and honest. Easy to discuss any issues we may have had. We would recommend Frank to anyone.

Rodney Hunter

We are a military family and found out about Debbie from friends.

They had so many amazing things to say about her, we decided to use her and forgo the realtor program through our bank. Debbie worked with us on a tight schedule. We had less than a week to find a home during a busy season while traveling in from out of state. Debbie was accommodating to everything we needed had many homes lined up. She is always connecting with people and has a great network. We felt like we were her only clients when she was working with us and after that. Debbie was there for us before, during, and after the process. Ultimately, Debbie ended up getting us an incredible home at low price within 4 days of our search! She was able to negotiate and secure the home verbally in a hot market and had the offer sent over as soon as she went to her office. I can't say enough or how grateful we are that she handled our first home buying purchase. If we used our lender's referral for a realtor we would have received a refund on closing of nearly $1,000.00 BUT we would not have gotten this house and I have absolutely no regrets. Debbie is worth that ten fold. I would highly recommend using her if you have that option!

Jessica Chavez

Debbie is incredible.

This is my second time working with her and she guides you through the whole process with ease. We have had ups and downs with our buyers and new house sellers but she navigated them perfectly. She is available when you are available and prompt for responses. Rest assured you are in good hands at all times!

Zillow Client

Britni went beyond our expectations!

When other Realtors told us we would never find what we were looking for in our price range, Britni found the one for us. Britni was relentless in the search for us!

Gary Westfall (Retired)

Debbie was amazing to work with, especially as my husband and I were first-time home sellers.

We were on a tight schedule (PCS move) and she made the process extremely smooth.

Carol Barnhart

Debbie Martin is an amazing realtor.

She does exactly what she says when she says she is going to do it. So reliable, straightforward and honest. This was our first home sale and Debbie made it easy as possible for us. We were able to reach out to her at any time and always get a response. I can't say enough good things about Debbie. If you are in the market to sell, contact Debbie.

Kim Hamilton

Jeanne did a wonderful job helping me get my home ready for photography for the MLS listing - and all that decluttering paid off!

I got an offer shortly after the only open house, and again, Jeanne helped me negotiate to get to an accepted offer. And finally, she helped me with all the necessary inspections and one or two hiccups along the way to a successful closing. Jeanne has a wealth of experience and knowledge about the local market. I highly recommend her to anyone selling (or buying!) a home in Gloucester county!

Cathy Peterson

For the past five years, Debbie has been helping us search for the perfect place that fits our over-the-top requirements in Gloucester, VA.

When a property did finally come up she met with us on several visits. She also helped us work through the paperwork, a contract that required multiple revisions and finally, the purchase of the property. She handled all of this while we were 5-plus hours away. The purchase went through with no more than what I saw as usual glitches. Her after-sale attention was even more outstanding, offering recommendations for local builders, remodel contractors, etc. Debbie's commitment to our satisfaction, both before and after the purchase of our new home, has been nothing short of outstanding. We look forward to using Debbie on our next purchase.

Jens Andersen

Let me just say Nikki is awesome!

!! Trying to find a house in this market at our price point was most difficult. After running around looking at 12 houses in 9 days , I was about to lose my mind. Nikki had to deal with many phone calls, texts and tears . She said trust me I will find your new home and she did !!!! It was everything on my checklist!! She also saved my marriage lol I had turned into the exorcist. Thank you Nikki West ??

Serena Hedge

Debbie is an outstanding real estate professional.

She made the process of selling our home as easy as possible. Her advice was spot on and her energy endless. Her expertise, professionalism, and knowledge are superb.

Yvonne Scales

Mike was very responsive to my concerns and always available when I had questions.

He acted on my behalf with a high degree of professionalism and efficiency throughout my buying experience, all of which made it very easy to work with him. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a buyer’s agent!

Holly Stallman

Mike is amazing to work with!

A consummate professional, detailed and prompt. Once we found our house, Mike walked us through every part of the process.

Christopher Wilson

Amy did an awesome job handling the sale of my commercial building.

From start to finish she was very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Amy for any real estate sales or purchases. I will use her again!


Debbie helped me so much with the sale of my sons home.

My son was relocated and I live out of state we listed the property with Debbie before we left. We had a contract within 1 week. With neither myself or my son there, once we got rolling there were repairs and such that had to be done. Debbie was just wonderful she took care of everything we needed to get done. She was wonderful to work with and professional. I would call her again if I needed to sell another property.

Teresa Zielinski


Martin was so awesome to work with. This estate was such a challenge and required much patience and time to see it through. Ms. Martin worked over-time to accommodate our needs, gave us professional advice throughout the process, answered our many questions, and stayed positive when we thought all was lost. We could not have gotten through the sell of the properties without Ms. Martin?s experience and love for helping people. Words cannot really express how much we appreciate having Ms. Martin as our realtor.

Kim Pickett

Britni is absolutely amazing!

! My daughter and I were in a huge time crunch to find a new home, with both of us having very complicated work schedules, Britni was completely flexible with meeting our needs at anytime of the day including weekends when searching for our new home, even adding some surprise viewings, which lead to us finding the perfect place that we now call HOME!! I highly recommend using Britni Brown as Your Realtor, we definitely plan to use her again in the future!! We love you Britni, Thank you for everything you do, have done and for just being the wonderful you that you are!!! ??

Jenny M Bowen (Office Admin Riverside Medical Group )

It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to write a recommendation for Britni Brown as my real estate agent.

 Our journey began about 5 months ago as my fiancé and I began to look for a summer home to be shared with family and friends.   He contacted Britni about a River property that immediately sold, (darn) and that is when Britni kicked into high gear to find us the perfect property that matched our needs. From being out bid, to her guidance, to us retracting our offers, this real estate roller coaster ride is definitely one for the books!   Britni handled everything with the utmost professionalism and grace.  We knew she truly cared and had our backs. Thanks for getting us to the finish line and we are now enjoying our new house because of you!   Bottom line…if you want someone who loves her job, listens and cares about your needs…hire Britni Brown to be your real estate agent extraordinaire! You won’t be disappointed!

Charlene was an wonderful liaison in facilitating our purchase of building and land in Aylett, VA.

She communicated effectively and efficiently. She answered emails and text messages with timely responses. She explained transactions and information to the best of her ability. New Life Community Church recommends Charlene Winter for you next property or land purchase.

Mike Miller is a wonderful realtor.

He was always available to get us through everything from preparing the house to closing. He went beyond the call of duty.

Patricia Woller

We were very satisfied with our decision to list with Charlene Winter.

And the closing on our 100-year-old home in a little more than 90-days is the proof that we made the right one. Charlene's local knowledge and experience were very important in helping us make critical decisions, from the listing price, through contract negotiations. Charlene is always very accessible and responsive; two extremely important professional qualities you want from your realtor. She is a good mediator and helped us resolve some differences when buyer and seller were both pushing hard. We appreciated Charlene's experience with older homes, and we believe that was a key factor in helping us attract potential buyers, especially in a slowing economy. I would wholeheartedly recommend Charlene for your listing realtor, particularly for those who are selling older or unique properties in this area.

Bob and Geri Hartlove (Homeowners)

Jeanne and Rodney were the best Realtors we have ever used!

(We have bought and sold a lot of houses). Personable and Professional. They worked tirelessly to sell our home quickly and for top-dollar. Communication was excellent. We definitely reommend!

Peter and Lesli Henry

Charlene was a great listing agent!

In addition to being friendly, on-time, and super organized, proactive is probably the best word to describe Charlene. We had quite a lag between contacting Charlene and going on the market - we hired a contractor to repair a few things before we listed, and one thing led to another, and there went four months! During that time before we listed, Charlene was proactive in developing a creative marketing plan for our unique property, proactive in talking our property up to other agents in town, and proactive in showing our property (with our permission!) to out-of-town buyers when they were in-town. We were out-of-town owners and Charlene was a godsend for coordinating inspections and other contractors. She's a great resource who has a great handle on the pulse of the local market.

Amanda did a great job helping us with our new house hunt.

Buying a home while in another state is not an easy task, but she was up to the challenge. After viewing several homes by video walk-through, Amanda helped us find the perfect one.

Anthony Williamson

If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommended Karen Burch.

I have had the pleasure of working with Karen on several home sales through the years and she has always represented my interests exceptionally well. However, the last home I sold, Karen represented me. It was the most challenging sale I have ever been a part of. During the whole process Karen spoke with me daily, messaged me updates immediately and even volunteered to complete some grueling leg work that needed to be done. I can not say enough about her commitment to serve her clients. You could not find a more determined and knowledgeable agent than Karen Burch.

Carla Williams

I was introduced to Debbie from a good friend who had used her as her realtor to buy their retirement home, as I watched the attention and dedication that Debbie gave them through their closing I knew the minute I decided to look for a second home in the area, I wanted Debbie to be our realtor!

As I am a primary resident of Florida, Debbie made the entire experience easy from coordinating as many viewings as she could possibly get in when we were in town. And once we settled on a place, she assisted with the coordination of our remote closing seamlessly, right down to the last minute details of the final walk-thru she did for us. She had many references for insurance, inspectors and lenders. Learning about the area from her made this second home choice feel right! Now that we have closed on our second home, we miss the phone calls, facetime, and texting with her, she made us feel welcome to the community.

Charlene is No# 1 REALTOR in VA.

The Best.

Les and Richie (client)

Friendly, very knowledgeable of the area, answered our questions promptly.

Debbie was great at listening to our needs and wants to help find the perfect first home for our family.

Zillow Client

Debbie is very helpful in every step of the process.

Debbie has great experience and made my first time selling easier than I could have hoped for. She makes the experience very pleasant, ensures open communication at all times, and is very personable.

David Freeman

I highly recommend calling Samantha to help you to search for a home.

She was highly responsive and knowledgeable. If you are looking for a realtor that is honest, hardworking and truly cares about their clients, then you want Samantha.

Denise Fajardo

Nikki communicates promptly and provides excellent advise.

She made purchasing our first house easy and fun!


Debbie is a super real estate agent.

She helped me find the place that suits me perfectly and worked all the challenges to bringing it to close, in spite of the fact that I live in Hawaii, 5000 miles away from Gloucester. She lives up to her promise to help buyers who live out of state. I asked Debbie to also help me sell land that I own and she is on top of that as well. I highly recommend her.

S Januss

Debbie did an outstanding job representing our property sale in Gloucester County.

She is proactive and professional. We would choose her again in the future for our realty needs. Thanks again Debbie

Fred Lamm

Her character and professional attitude was amazing.

When she said she was going to be there or call you she did She is very knowledgeable about everything in selling a home and helped us in every way especially encouragement and kindness . I will highly recommend Nina Watkins to anyone interested in selling or buying a home.

Gayle Roman

We couldn't be happier with our experience with Amy.

She is a very knowledgeable and professional agent who brings everything shes got to get you the home you want. After months of searching she found us our home and went above and beyond to insure we got what we wanted. I highly recommend this agent if your seeking to buy a home.

Joseph & Jennifer Smith

She is the most wonderful person I have known to care for her clients.

Absolutely five stars ?? ?? ?? ?? ??

Su Dufy

After Googling real estate agents in Glouster, VA, I called NextHome Coast to Country Real Estate.

Fortunately for me, Samantha answered, and I guess you could say the rest is history! She answered my questions and promised to help sell two properties that have been next to impossible to sell. Living over 800 miles from Glouster County, I was totally dependent on Samantha. Last week we closed on one property, and it’s looking promising for the other property to sell. I would highly recommend Samantha as your real estate agent! I’m really looking forward to meeting her in person on my next trip to VA!

Geralyn Koeberlein

Debbie was excellent.

As a first time homebuyer, I appreciated Debbie's patience as we looked at a lot of homes until finding the right one. She walked me through the whole buying experience from searching for a home to the closing.

Stacie Horrell

Working with Debbie was a joy.

Especially since the majority of my home search was conducted via long distance. She took photos, did video walk throughs all while putting up with a somewhat difficult, persistent, picky client. She pulled through for me and found the perfect house. She's very patient, considerate, smart and made the process as swift and easy as possible. Thanks Debbie!

Sandra Yoemans

It was such a pleasure working with Britni!

She put her boots on, her kids in tow (or as we like to call them, the "executives") and showed us multiple properties. Some were off the beaten path but Britni did not hesitate. Her car saw some questionable dirt roads that did a number on her vehicle but she pushed through with a smile on her face. Britni was happy to answer any questions we had and made some initial recommendations we probably should've listened to! We are moving back to the area so conducting business, getting documents, and having prompt responses was paramount for us, since we are out of state. Britni checked all of those boxes. We got everything we needed, she was always available, and thorough. We've been trying to find our dream land to build our forever home and Britni made sure we got the first part of that done! We would highly recommend Britni!

Justin and Brook Creel

From day one, Debbie was on it!

She gave recommendations on how to improve our house without spending a lot of money. She was quick to come out and take pictures and list our home on the market. Nothing was ever too big or too small for Debbie to take care of! No matter what time of day or even a holiday, Debbie answered our questions and worked diligently to ensure we had an effortless home sale! On the day we moved, Debbie took time out of her day to stop by and say goodbye and also give us a little parting gift. Debbie was pleasant, self-starting, diligent, and reassuring throughout the whole process. I HIGHLY recommend Debbie for your home selling/buying needs!

Zillow Client

Britni Brown is everything a real estate salesperson should be.

Upon phone consultation, we told Britni what we were looking for in a retirement home. Being out of state, Britni took the reigns and set up 7 homes for us to see. With her intense knowledge of the VirginiaRiver Realm area, she led us to the home of our dreams. During one of our visits, our lodging fell through. No worries, Britni contacted an inn for us, drove us there, and relieved that worry immediately. She understands her clients, and does everything in her power to make deals seamless. Being from out of state, Britni handled everything for us on the ground in Virginia. Contractors, inspections, and the quick closing is a testament to her skill as a professional in her field. I highly recommend Britni, she is an expert, and knows the Virginia River Realm area thoroughly. We consider her a friend now too.

Keri DiLascio (homeowner)

Charlene is amazing!

Not only is she a great Realtor she is a wonderful human being! She is very knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy. She has sold 1 house for us and helped us purchase 2 houses. She is very patient - we have put her through alot and looked at a ton of homes. I would highly recommend her.

Kimberly Fink (Human Resources Manager )

It was great working with you on New Point Hw.

The appraisal issues definitely made things interesting, but we got it done! Thank you for being awesome and all that you did to help get this deal to closing.

Mike A (lender)

I first met Ira about twenty five years ago.

I was building homes and he worked with one of my clients. From the very beginning I could see the professional manner he conducted his self and always put the customer at ease with his open way of doing business. We have continued working together all of these years and in this year we have closed homes for two clients with one to go. I strongly recommend Ira to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Mike made selling our house easy!

He sold it in just a matter of days! We couldn't be happier!!!

Tracie Larkin

Frank's years of experience have gained him invaluable knowledge and he is truly a professional.

He was prompt in returning calls, caring in his demeanor, and demonstrated a calm manner that inspired our confidence. Thank you for a job well done!

Iris Garriss

We moved from New Jersey to Midlothian, Va, But we wanted to move to the area around Gloucester Va.

Debbie came highly recommended from a high school friend living in the area. Debbie's expertise in the field was amazing, she treated every home we looked at as if she was buying it. She spent about 5 months with us and was very patient. Even after the closing she called to see if there was anything we needed. Debbie is a huge resource for the Gloucester, Williamsburg, Newport News area. From food stores to restaurants to furniture stores to contracters she went above and beyond. You will not go wrong when you call Debbie! Thank you so Much!!! Dan and Robin Kirchner

Dan and Robin Kirchner

Charlene is a good agent that is persistent and will get the job done.

Always pleasant to deal with.

Robert Passwater (The Man)

Charlene is truly a gem to work with.

She assisted me in finding a home for over a year even prior to submitting my loan application. As a first time home buyer, she has assisted and guided me in this process throughout the entire way and made the process easy to understand and navigate. She was always available when I had questions and if not, she got back to me as soon as she could. Charlene communicates well, listens, and supports her clients which was important to me in the decision to buy my first home. I couldn’t have picked a better realtor to work with.

Madison Emerson

Mike was the best realtor ever.

He was always available for any questions we had and found us the perfect house in the best neighborhood. It was a long process with lots of unaccepted offers but he stuck with us through it all and was very supportive (and a bit of a therapist on the hard days). Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Joe & Rebecca Clarkson

Charlene was fantastic to work with!

She put my needs first looking out for my best interest and was quick to respond every time I needed her. She goes beyond the extra mile.

Melissa Wilt (Buyer)

Debbie is the utmost real estate sales professional.

Do not hesitate to work with her on either the buyer or seller side of your next real estate transaction. She will take care of all of the fine details and insure you have a smooth transaction from start to finish. She is knowledgeable, honest, sincere and a delightful Realtor.

Johna Pitchford

I just wanted to drop you a "thank you" for making the closing at Poplar such a smooth transaction.

The buyers are thrilled with their first home. Hopefully, we can work together again soon.


Excellent service.

Was on top of all details and quick to respond to any issues. Highly competent.

Bill Lawrence

Thank you for making the time to say "thank you"!

I'm so glad you enjoyed reading my very first book. You are the first person from over-seas to let me know THE POWER OF CONNECTION is now global for me! I hope to meet you one day and for now I send you lots of love from down-under.

Rik Rushton (author)

Nikki did a great job as the listing agent for our home.

She’s knowledgeable, quick to respond, practical and well connected. She’s able to cut through the red tape and get things done. We would recommend her to anyone needing an agent!

Carolyn N

Debbie Martin is the consummate realtor.

She is first of all a full time realtor. Debbie understands how important communication is. Debbie is NOT one of those realtors who takes forever to return calls, emails or text messages. You can usually expect a response within minutes, not hours or days. Even if it is a text message telling you she is in a meeting and she will call you shortly. Debbie knows the market and will give you sound advice with which to make good decisions. So if you are looking for a realtor who is full time, professional, experienced, and an outstanding communicator, you should contact Debbie Martin. You will not be disappointed!

Tony Lee

It was a real pleasure working with Charlene.

She has an impeccable sense of professionalism and knowledge of the areas were we were looking to buy. She was always available when we had questions and definitely went above and beyond in helping us find the perfect land.

Christine Tucker

Rodney was awesome, great communication throughout the entire purchase and willing to do things other realtors would not!

..he went under our house, into the crawl space without prompting, just to check the condition!..I can and will recommend Rodney to anyone searching for their next home!

Mike Atwood

Debbie was outstanding!

!! She made the selling of our old home and the buying of our new home a great experience. Even though we had some problems come up with our house we were selling she was always there and on top of things to help work them out. Through the whole process she always had our best interest in mind and was always looking out for us. Debbie was not only our realtor but I feel that the time we spent with this process we have made a friendship. We highly recommend her for anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home. She truly is the best ever!! She is there for you and will make you feel like you are her top priority even though she has other client you would never guess that. We love Debbie!!!

Maria Sturgeon

Nikki has sold 2 homes for us.

She was great through the entire process. She helped us price both homes to sell quickly but get the most out each property. She was there every step of the way, great communication. We will definitely use her again if the opportunity presents itself.

Jacqueline Jones

Miss Brown is awesome.

Anytime I had a question she was available for help day/ night/ weekends.Next Home is very lucky to have her there! She was point on in every aspect. I will definitely talk to her again when I am looking at the real estate market.
