Bay River Realty is a rural real estate firm serving the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula of Virginia. Our focus is helping people buy and sell homes and land that are unique to the area we serve. We enjoy a lifestyle that isn’t found just anywhere! Our clients are generally not searching for a specific zip code or school district, but rather a property that will enable them to enjoy a quality of life not found in cities and highly populated areas.

One of the most sought-after property-types in our market are waterfront homes, which offer gorgeous water views and the opportunity to enjoy fishing, crabbing, boating, and water sports in your “back yard.” Homes and land with acreage is also a very popular property-type, especially with so many people wanting to hunt, grow their own fruits and vegetables, ride ATVs, and simply enjoy privacy and seclusion. We also sell historic homes, water-access and inland homes, as well as waterfront and inland building lots.

Regardless of the type of property you’re looking to buy or sell in our region, we would be happy to assist. We don’t work outside our area of expertise; we don’t try to do business in Richmond or Northern Virginia, or any other market – we want to specialize in our market only, and be able to provide our clients with the knowledge, skills, and local connections that “out-of-area” agents aren’t able to provide.

Let us help you with your upcoming real estate sale or purchase! We would be grateful for your business!
