The Best Brunch Spots In Virginia - Richmond and Hampton Made the List!

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Fri, Feb 24, 2017 @ 02:53 PM

Pavilion_cafe_breakfast.jpgVirginia.org recently published a list of the 13 best brunch spots in Virginia.  The list contains spots known for quality food, service, atmosphere...and maybe most importantly, quality cocktails!  Restaurants from Northern Virginia down to Virginia Beach are known to be crowd pleasers, and a few are even located in our backyard!

Venture Kitchen & Bar—Hampton

Sunday 10am-2pm

At Venture Kitchen & Bar, brunch is serious business. Not only does the restaurant have a regular brunch menu that is reliably tasty, but they also have a rotating menu that changes every week so that you can try something new. When it comes to Sunday brunch cocktails, you’ll find some “old faithfuls” like mimosas, but there are many intriguing options as well, like the French 75 and the Queen’s Cousin.

Local Favorites: Fried Eggs Benedict, Orange Blossom Cocktail, Corned Beef Hash

Millie’s Diner—Richmond

Saturday 10am-3pm, Sunday 9am-3pm

This popular Richmond spot has been around for over 25 years, but their tasty brunch menu never gets old. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Richmond residents flock to Millie’s Diner for one of the best brunches in the city. Although the wait can sometimes be over an hour to get in, the food is more than worth it. Plus, the bartender will fix you up with mimosas or Bloody Marys that will make the time seem to fly by.

Local Favorites: Devil’s Mess, Huevos Rancheros

The Jefferson Hotel—Richmond

Sunday 10:30am-1:30pm

If you’re planning on eating brunch at The Jefferson Hotel, make sure you are ready to “tuck in”, as they say. Sunday Champagne Brunch at this historic Richmond location has seemingly endless tables of some of the finest food imaginable, including a platter of smoked salmon and a full seafood raw bar, an impressive ham carved to order, an omelet station manned by several chefs, a lavish dessert display, and so much more (Including bottomless mimosas and coffee!). We could go on and on about this brunch, but you need to experience it yourself to understand why every Richmonder will recommend The Jefferson as a must-visit brunch destination.

 Local Favorites: Raw Seafood Bar, Omelet Station

Next time you find yourself asking, "where should we eat brunch", consider one of these local favorites!

Great restaurants...just another reason why we Love Where We Live!!!

Richmond Sees Dramatic Rise in Sold Price to List Price Ratio

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Mon, Jan 09, 2017 @ 12:58 PM

RVA.jpgIn the Central Virginia Region, sold price verses list price trends yielded a 96.7% ratio, up from last year's 79.7% (November 2015), a dramatic 21.27% upswing.

As we begin to move into the year's busiest selling season, this will certainly create pressure on decreasing Month's Supply of Inventory (MSI) in the months to come.

What does this mean to you?  Now is a great time to sell!

Statistics are from CVRMLS, and are based on data from Dec. 2015 - Dec. 2016. 

If you’re a seller who has been wondering if it might finally be time to sell, email us at concierge@lizmoore.com, or click below, and we can prepare a complimentary analysis of market value for you – you just may be pleasantly surprised.

We Are Reinventing Real Estate in Richmond!

Posted by Liz Moore on Thu, Sep 01, 2016 @ 03:59 PM

Presentation1-1.jpg

Liz Moore and Associates is excited to announce that we are expanding our reach to the Richmond market opening an office in Midlothian, Virginia.  Liz Moore’s first Richmond area office is scheduled to open September 1st.

This new office will introduce the Richmond market to the Liz Moore & Associates brand, a real estate company focused on the client experience with client-centered services like pre-listing inspections and appraisals, exceptional customer service, and creative marketing strategies.  

The Midlothian based office will be led by Tonya Morrow as Richmond Managing Broker.  Tonya is recognized as an innovator in Richmond area real estate, bringing with her a successful track record in sales management.  Morrow, who recently completed the Richmond Association of REALTORS Leadership Academy, is highly respected by local agents for her creative ideas and results driven coaching.

Annemarie Hensley, currently ranked fourth in overall residential resale sales volume in the local market, will serve as the anchor agent for the new office, bringing her team of 5 to the new venture.

Liz Moore & Associates was founded in 2003 by President Liz Moore and her partner Brian D. Lytle, with a vision for an enlightened real estate agency where all the greatest agents want to work, and where business is solidly built on enthusiastic referrals and out-of-the box marketing techniques.  Liz built the company from the inside out, creating the systems and resources that would allow agents to “wow” clients by delivering exceptional customer service.  Liz is very excited to expand and serve the growing Richmond market. 

“I’ve always been interested in expanding into key markets in the Commonwealth, and when this opportunity presented itself, it was simply too good to pass up,” says Liz Moore.  “I was approached by two very accomplished women who were interested in introducing the Liz Moore brand to the Richmond market; they saw the need for a boutique brokerage with a laser focus on the client experience, and our plan is to fill that gap.” 

To learn more about Liz Moore & Associates, this new Richmond area office, and new team members Tonya Morrow and Annemarie Hensley, please visit www.lizmoore.com/rva or email RVA@lizmoore.com.
