Charlottesville VA Luxury Real Estate
A Charlottesville Luxury Buyer's Agent Since 2003
Charlottesville, VA Luxury Real Estate for Sale
My 2024 advice – As a Charlottesville Buyers Agent since 2003, I strongly advise you, the buyer, to never use the same brokerage as the seller’s…in any real estate transaction. And this especially goes for new construction. By law, the listing/seller’s agent MUST represent the seller. The managing broker will advise you to use another agent in their office (so the broker makes both commissions). Two real estate agents in the same company are NOT going to battle it out with each for your benefit and the broker won’t allow it either. Don’t do it. You will save more money using a buyers agent from a different brokerage. This also means never buy a new Charlottesville luxury home from a spec builder without using a buyers agent. As a Charlottesville buyers agent, we are aware of the upgrades and perks being given if the builder wants to sell a home quickly. You won’t.
Can a realtor represent both buyer and seller in Virginia?
Answer: A licensee may not act as a dual agent or dual representative in a residential real estate transaction unless he has first obtained the written consent of all parties to the transaction given after written disclosure of the consequences of such dual agency or dual representation. Virginia Law Section 54.1-2139.
That’s my words of wisdom for 2024.

Where to Find the Finest Charlottesville Luxury Real Estate
My favorite Charlottesville luxury homes located near the city limits are in Bellair, Ednam (Ednam Condos, Ednam Forest, and Ednam Village all of which are surrounded by UVA’s Boars Head Inn & Sports Club), and Farmington (Farmington Country Club).
We are next going east…then north…then west and then to the south.
My favorite area east of Charlottesville is Keswick.
In Keswick, you will see the most spectacular farms in America, a few designed by Thomas Jefferson.
Note: Keswick is an equestrian’s paradise as lovely as Wellington in Palm Beach, Ocala, and Middleburg VA.
Heading northwest, I like Earlysville for its spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain views and rolling countryside.
I love Free Union which is south of Earlysville for its absolute pristine beauty.
Free Union is what you picture Virginia looked like 200 years ago.
Free Union is located closer to The Boar’s Head Sports Club, Farmington Country Club, and the City of Charlottesville.
The Farmington Hunt is here too.
West of Free Union is the little village of Ivy which offers a gas station, garden center, dining, and a few other small businesses.
Young families love Ivy Va real estate for its excellent public schools.
Heading west on Rt 250 we hit Crozet, another small agricultural town made popular for its numerous orchards including the Albemarle Pippin apple.
Crozet offers the most affordable and luxurious developments in the county.
My favorite Charlottesville luxury neighborhood is Old Trail which in terms of size is huge compared to the other neighborhoods.
Drive out of the Old Trail neighborhood and there’s Western Albemarle High, Henley Middle, and Brownsville Elementary.
Living in Old Trail Crozet can’t get any better for young families.
The next stop is the town of Greenwood. Blink and you’ll miss it. In the historic, tiny village is an interesting antique shop and post office. Nearby are 3 superb vineyards and Chiles Peach Orchard.
Greenwood VA is renown for its historic plantations: Blue Ridge Farm, Mirador, Ramsay, Rosehill, Royal Orchard, Tiverton, and Seven Oaks.
Heading south on the historic Plank Road (begun in the 18th century with wood planks and extends from the James River over the Blue Ridge Mountains into the verdant Shenandoah Valley) we arrive in Batesville.
A lovely small town was once renowned for its coopers and their wood apple barrels.
The Batesville Market is where it all happens especially on Saturday nights when they serve dinner and have live music.
Heading south again on the historic Plank Road, we come to the most extraordinary Albemarle luxury neighborhoods of Bundoran Farm.
A green community is situated in a beautiful, bucolic valley surrounded by thousands of apple trees and small mountains.
The homes are all unique, custom-built, and luxurious. Pippin Hill Farm is here.
The estate homes are all fabulous and offer scenic views of a large lake and surrounding mountains.
Author, James A Michener, lived in Blandemar Farm Estates while he wrote his superb novel, Poland.
Back to Charlottesville Downtown Mall for a martini then walk over to The Gleason and 218 Water Street to check out these two luxury highrise condos and their spectacular views of the mountains surrounding Monticello.
For aspiring artists, McGuffey Hill condos would be a perfect place to live. These luxurious condos are adjoined to the famed McGuffey Art Center.
All three of these luxury condo developments are within a block of the historic Charlottesville Downtown Mall and all the action…
Location, location, location!

Charlottesville was voted the number one place to live in the United States for hundreds of reasons.
The last time this small, Georgian, southern city, earned this accolade was in 1812 when Charlottesville was known throughout the Thirteen Colonies as the finest, small Georgian city.
The Charlottesville area was home to 5 American Presidents: George Washington, Zachary Taylor, James Monroe, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Jefferson, a native of Charlottesville, built and designed the finest Albemarle VA luxury real estate (having also designed and built two of America’s most important architectural gems, Monticello
and The University of Virginia).
What most Charlottesville luxury home buyers enjoy most about living in Charlottesville are the superb public schools, the four seasons, the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, the theatrical arts, the early American history, 18+ local vineyards, and 2 of the Top 50 Hospitals In America.
