Announcing Clocktower Realty!

It's been a few years in the making but we are so incredible happy and proud to announce Clocktower Realty! We are a completely independent Real Estate firm that specializes in the buying, selling and investment of homes in Richmond. 

So what is Clocktower Realty? 
Clocktower Realty is a boutique Real Estate Firm that figures out what our clients need and deliver on that promise. You're not just another number to us, buying a home is one of the most important purchases that any of us will achieve in our lifetimes. We want that experience to be the best it can be! We will match you with an agent that best matches your personality, how many other Real Estate firms out there can say that they have the ability and interest of doing that? 

For those looking to sell, Clocktower knows that selling can be a stressful process. Someone else is coming in and taking over your home when you sell and sometimes it's hard to even know where to even begin. You may ask yourself some of the following questions: "Does the house need repairs, new floors or a new roof? Will it sell for the right price, or is it too low or too high?" We do all the research for you so you don't have to! We have seen hundreds of homes in of all Central Virginia and we'll be able to determine what needs to be done to get you the optimal value of your home. We'll also compare it to all of your neighbors to make sure it is in line with the rest of your area. 

For our buyers, we spend the time looking for the perfect home that is also perfect for your budget. We've helped hundreds, yes hundreds, of people find the home of their dreams. How do we do it? By learning all there is to about the area and about our clients. Do you like to eat out a lot at local restaurants? Or maybe your thing is shopping? We have the perfect home for you! We even set alerts to let you know when a new home comes in the market that matches your preferred criteria. 

One of our biggest drivers in Real Estate is also the ability to revitalize the City and it's surrounding areas. How do we do that? We find investors looking to bring new life to old properties. This is a great way not to only make our investors money but also to create a beautiful home for an interested buyer. 

How did we get our start? 
Rhonda Howlett, founder of Clocktower Realty, has a love for the City of Richmond that dates back to her childhood.  Growing up in Mathews, Virginia, a small county on the Chesapeake Bay, Rhonda and her family came to Richmond every year around Christmas time.  They would wait what seemed like forever to visit with Santa at the old Miller and Rhodes, do some Christmas shopping, have dinner at one of the city’s incredible restaurants, and end the trip driving through the lights downtown near The James Center.

“I used to get so excited as we drove up the interstate and the city skyline came into view”, Rhonda said. “When I saw the robust outline of Main Street Station, I knew we had arrived.”

When deciding on a name for her Real Estate, Rhonda knew that Main Street Station had to be at the core. “I wanted something that was symbolic of Richmond”, Rhonda said. “As I researched the building, I found that it is not only iconic and beautiful, but that it also has this immense strength.”  In fact, the platform of the train shed is still resting on its original trestles, making it the largest intact train trestle system in the country.  For Rhonda, the combination of history, beauty, and an extremely strong foundation offered the perfect symbolism of exactly what she wanted her real estate group to represent.

“Each house, each piece of land, each building has a story,” Rhonda said.  “I wanted a brand that was based on bringing out the beauty and the history in everything we do.”  The real estate signs for Clocktower Realty Group are jet black, with an outline of Main Street Station and the Clocktower in metallic copper.  According to Rhonda “They are beautiful.  They are different than all the others.  And they are Richmond.”

Why choose Clocktower? 
There are many Real Estate Agencies in Richmond, but we promise you, you won't find one that is as passionate as Clocktower in Richmond. We have put a team together that is the best of the best, just ask around! We're actively involved with the Richmond Association of Realtors, the Women's Council of Realtors (WCR) and the Richmond Mortgage Bankers Association so we can keep learning and growing. In fact, Rhonda Howlett, our founder is the president of the WCR for 2017. Our commitment for our clients doesn't end in the transaction alone. 

We are - "Your history in the making"
