I have always been hesitant to recommend anyone for fear of misleading others.  However, I am very confident in recommending Wil Childress and the staff at Lake Retreat Properties for your real estate needs.

First, I had several friends that in the past several years have used Mr. Childress as their listing agent.  They were very complimentary of him and strongly recommended him to my wife and me.  One of the persons had retired from another real estate firm, but had Mr. Childress list her properties because of the confidence she had in his abilities and personality.  The other person said he listed his properties with Mr. Childress and left the area, leaving him to handle any issues that arose.  This person was very pleased with Mr. Childress and strongly recommended him to us once he found out we were interested in selling our home.

My personal experience with Mr. Childress was wonderful.  He is very knowledgeable of the area and any resources that were needed in preparing our home for sale.  Many times, he would personally contact a contractor and have them contact us, taking the worry from us as to who to get.  He kept us informed as to what activities were taking place and any comments made by perspective buyers.  Finally, he was always available to answer any questions that we had.  I feel that the sale of our home was due in large part to the commitment and efforts put forth by Mr. Childress.

Thank you for all your assistance, great customer service, and friendly staff every time I have called or emailed.  The staff's promptness in addressing questions and future (rental) confirmations is excellent.

Happy to rent from you all!

We sold $1,000,000 + property with Wil as our Realtor on Smith Mountain Lake.  We had tried two other local Realtors before Wil and the difference between Wil and the preceding Realtors was amazing.
Wil was communicative and informative and extremely helpful in coming up with marketing strategies to get the most views of our property by qualified prospective buyers.
If I ever buy property in the SML area again or subsequently sell there, Will is the first person I'm going to call.
