Victoria Gilliland, Associate Broker/Real Estate Agent
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) 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.

Allison Seay Farmer, Real Estate Agent
I was in law enforcement for almost 20 years and really had a desire to be self employed. So after I had my daughter, who will be 4 in July, I decided to make the change. Having worked for two attorneys while I was much younger I have always in some way been involved in real estate so had a good knowledge of what happens after the contracts are signed up until closing. I guess now I want to learn the other side of the coin and experience the before contract signing aspect of things. I have had a desire to get my license for several years, but up until now just have never done it. Besides working as an independent title agent, I hope to one day be able to split my time between title agent and real estate agent.
