With competition growing in Richmond’s home-selling scene, one of the larger residential real estate brokerages in the region is firming up its local footprint with a new outpost in the Willow Lawn area.
Long & Foster Real Estate is getting a new storefront with the opening of a brick-and-mortar office for Cabell Childress Group, an agent team currently based out of the brokerage’s Innsbrook/Glen Allen branch.
The office, slated to open in mid-June, is at 4904 W. Clay St., a 3,800-square-foot building beside West End Antiques Mall and Verve Home Furnishings, a couple blocks across Broad Street from Willow Lawn.
Group leader Cabell Childress purchased the building in March through an entity called Spider Properties Trust, which paid $580,000 for the quarter-acre property. The sellers were Craig and Linda Peyton, who had purchased it in 1995 for $235,000, Henrico County property records show.
