About Blue Ridge Realty


 We established Blue Ridge Realty in 1993 and have been serving the Southwest Virginia market ever since. We take pride in knowing whom we are representing and doing it to the very best of our ability.  When representing the seller we work to try and get the most we possibly can out of our seller’s property.  If we are representing the buyer then we try and buy the property as cheaply as we possibly can. We also do dual representation as some situations may require.  We try to operate on the premise OUR WORD IS OUR BOND. Trading in real estate is our passion and we are committed to it.  We cordially invite you to work with us in your real estate transaction.

We belong to the Southwest Virginia Association of Realtors located in Abingdon, VA.  Belonging to SWVAR is a great way to network and work with other agents in the area.  It also holds all agents to a high standard of excellence.  We joined so that our clients will understand we are doing everything to help either the buyer or seller either buy their dream home at a great price or the sell their home in a reasonable amount of time and get the best price.


We can offer our clients the use of the MLS system.  When listing a house on the MLS your home is featured around the globe.  Once plugged into the MLS system your home will automatically start showing up on other sites such as, Zillow, Realtor, Homes and many more.  For the buyer using the MLS system lets us enter exactly the house and area you are looking for and being able to search for it at the touch of a button.

R.D. Snead


I  got my real estate license in 1993 and immediately set up Blue Ridge Realty.  We have our office here in Lebanon Va and we have been here in the same location for the last 25 or so years. Selling is really all I know much about  it is all I have done all my adult life.  I am a native of Russell County and have really worked at this location for the last 42 years or so. I have been very blessed to have always had, smart, honest, loyal, people  around me. We actually have fun working together and bring  our different strengths to the table , which I think makes for a great environment for our customers.  I hope you will want to use us on your next real estate transaction.
