As a Historic, Waterfront and Equestrian Property Agent, it is a rare opportunity to represent Sellers of adjoining Estates and bring both Properties to the successful completion as SOLD properties.   I feel a great sense of accomplishment and at the same time I realize that it is the end of an era of ownership and stewardship that has passed to new owners who have and will each take their properties to the next level and live beautiful lives there! It was my honor to play a part in bringing these transactions to a close.

This very handsome  Riverfront Home is sited on 5 acres overlooking the Piankatank River and adjoins World Class Carousel, which I sold last year, representing both the Seller and Purchaser.  For more information and stunning photography of both properties in their pre-purchased state, please visit the link at the bottom of this post.

If I can help you accomplish your buying or selling goals, please contact me at 804-445-5500!  I will represent  you with Experience, Diligence and Results.

The name for Mahockney probably came from the Indian name "Mahawg" which means "gourd." The original home's builder, Robert Tomlin, traded extensively with local Indians. (Dave Ellis / The Free Lance-Star)
