Cindy Bennett, Associate Broker, ABR, GRI, GREEN

To start, let me introduce myself. I am Cindy Bennett and I have been working in real estate for over fifteen years. I was born and raised in Chesterfield, Virginia and then after moved up and down the east coast for a few years. My last move landed me in Henrico, Virginia where I now spend any free time I have cooking, going to see live music, and spending time with my son, when he allows me too. I have held many different positions throughout my life but nothing has ever captured my attention like real estate. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your real estate goals, whatever those may be, I would love to meet with you! Please do not be afraid to reach out! Let’s talk!

Cindy was a great partner to have during our first home-buying process. She was extremely responsive during the initial meeting, then showing us around town, speaking about pros/cons of different areas, through honing in on our desired area. She would answer every question thoroughly and give her honest opinion on each option. Ultimately she found us an early lead on an upcoming home that we purchased. It’s our dream home and Cindy is the reason we found it. 11/10 – Jack A. 

Let’s Talk Richmond

Richmond has been at the center of things for as long as it has existed. It was first established as a trading post in 1637, key in helping the colonists trade with other communities to share resources. It was officially named Richmond in 1733. This name was derived from Richmond upon Thames, England. It’s next big move was becoming the capital of Virginia during the Revolutionary War in 1779. Since then, it has been the center of Virginia where the state government holds sessions.

There is always something happening in Richmond. If you enjoy being in the middle of things, living in Richmond, especially the heart of the city, is the perfect place for you. There is a great mix of people living and working in Richmond. You can meet so many different people just by walking down the street and exploring new parts of the city. There are so many areas that have great shops and dining options, but Carytown is one of the most popular places among Richmonders and people from surrounding counties to go and hang out. There is a wide array of shopping and dining options for people of all ages. There is anything from bars and home shops, to ice cream shops and toy stores. 

Richmond is also home to two major universities, the University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University. Being downtown you are likely to run into college students walking to and from classes, going to the store, etc. This also leads into it being a great place for young professionals to begin their careers. 

Some other awesome places for you to explore include Belle Isle on the James River, Hardywood Brewery, and Hollywood National Cemetery. There is something for everyone in Richmond and if you can’t find it within Richmond you are likely to find it within one of the surrounding counties with a short commute. 

Not only has Richmond ranked 50th in US News and World Report’s 2021 survey of Best Places to Live, it is home to nearly too many fantastic restaurants and breweries to list here. Museums, music venues, historical attractions, and more, mean you’ll never be stuck without something to do. One of the best things about Richmond, though, is the presence of the James River, bisecting our beautiful city and providing us with not only magnificent views, but white water rapids, flatwaters for a quiet paddle, islands for festivals and music, and so much more.
