Victoria Gilliland

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. That said, in my experience as a real estate professional over the past 20 years, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs. I think that the best way to do that is to have one job and do it well. There are just too many details that must be taken care of every step of the way and I stay on top of them start to finish! I want my clients and customers to know that I am always thinking about them and looking out for their best interest.

This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients. I feel that the more education I obtain, the better I can advise and serve my clients and customers. I will always strive to learn something new! I have completed the required classes and have designations for ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative, e-Pro, SFR(Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource Certification) GRI (Graduate, REALTOR Institute), PSA and SRES(Seniors Real Estate Specialist).

I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS, Virginia Association of REALTORS, the Lynchburg Association of REALTORS and Real Estate Buyer’s Council, Inc.

I would love the opportunity to talk to you more in depth about your real estate needs, tell you about my marketing plan and the strategies and technology I will use to help you sell your home or find you one! So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Lynchburg areas, please contact me. The market is constantly changing and home values do the same. Remember your initial consultation is ALWAYS free of charge, and you are under NO OBLIGATION of any kind.

Don Ashworth

In my opinion, I was blessed to be born and raised in Virginia. While attending DeVry University in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, I decided that while a metropolitan area has its advantages, it lacked the serenity of the country life. I prefer family and country folks over city crowds and rush-hour hustle, along with a preference for forest and mountain views over skyscrapers and strip malls.

In the late 1980’s I in enrolled in a Real Estate Course and my interest in real estate was sparked. The first home I purchased was a HUD home and in three years, I was able to use my home equity line of credit to purchase my present home at a foreclosure auction. Since then I have purchased bank-owned properties, tax auction properties, properties from out of state owners, and have sold several properties as For-Sale-by-Owner. In 2015 I decided it was time to become a Real Estate Agent. So, if you are a first time home buyer, an investor, or someone looking to make a change in your home, I completely understand your needs. If you are a seller, I understand your struggles of deciding the best way to market your property.

I obtained my Auctioneer License in 2017 and I am looking forward to helping people sell their Estates, Farms, and Standing Timber Rights. Watts also has several consignment Auctions a year, so if you do not think you have enough property for your own personal auction, give me a call for consignment details.

Please feel free to call, text or email me for more details and any questions, I am available up to 8:30 pm nightly and feel free to contact me on the weekends.
