New Name, Same Great Service!


    The Beginning: Poore, Reichstetter & Associates

    Blake Poore and I have both been selling real estate for a very long time. We each had our own circle of friends and associates and we were both successful in our own right before the advent of Poore, Reichstetter & Associates. When Blake and I started the company, we were teaming up more for convenience and synergy – we didn’t realize that we would end up putting together a very unique group of individuals that would go after a fairly large chunk of the Richmond, VA Real Estate market. But that’s exactly what we did as Distinguished Achiever Award winners year after year!

    Dedication to Exceptional Service

    Our goal has always been to provide great service, deliver what is promised, and keep transactions as smooth as possible for all of our clients. This dedication to exceptional service is very important to each of us and has carried over to our company. We hire people that embrace the same mindset and professionalism while maintaining a sense of fun.

    Let’s face it – a real estate transaction is one of the biggest events, as far as true cost, that most of our clients will ever take part in. Making sure this is a great experience for our clients is our top priority. Hiring those that contribute to making great things happen is paramount, and having a cohesive work team to accomplish this goal is what we are all about.

    Team Growth

    After using the name Poore, Reichstetter & Associates for many years, we felt it was time for a name change. We needed something to reflect more than just our names, something that could grow and encompass more than what two people had put together. Our group was expanding and we felt our current company name did not fully represent the amazing team of people we were continuing to build.

    Introducing Explore Realty Group!

    This past year we spent a good bit of time working not “in” our business on a day to day basis, but “on” our business. Trying to figure out ways to make what we do better for our clients, as well as for our team. This led to re-branding and adding Chris Raimo, a top agent, to our management team. Starting the first of the year, our new name is now Explore Realty Group.

    We had our share of ups and downs selling our property, and April [Lane] was right there with us every step of the way with expert advice and immediate responses to our questions and concerns. April is a wealth of information and it has been a pleasure to work with her; I would definitely enlist her services again.
