It all started at age 8. There I was with a tape measure in hand helping my dad measure a house in Augusta County. He recently left the flying business and he was using me to hold the "dumb end" of the tape measure as he was starting his real estate career. "You at the corner, " I can remember him asking. "Yes," I replied. His business lasted more than 50 years and involved subdivision development, selling farms and raw land in the Shenandoah Valley.
I came back to the business in 1990 when Carol Cuneo joined Bowers Nelms & Fonville, which was purchased by Long & Foster in 1998. I have a passion about my clients. I tell them the truth. And, I will not take photos of your property. I use a professional photographer for that most important job. Also, I use a professional home decorator to make sure your house shows its best.
So, call me. If we can do business that will be great. If not, then maybe I can give you a tip or two that will help you sell your property.

"[Mike's] integrity, expertise and efficiency are above and beyond the average. In the purchase or sale of 5 homes, we have always been able to rely on his knowledge and recommendations. There is a great comfort in that."

"Mike Grim had a wealth of knowledge about the Richmond real estate market...and he was infinitely patient! We looked at a LOT of houses, and finally found the perfect one! And then, of course, he was there to help me with all the details of buying, and then selling the old house."
