Client Testimonials

I felt from the very beginning, Stacey had my best interests at heart. She was the most responsive person I have ever dealt with. Any time I texted or called, she immediately responded to me. Stacey connected me with professionals to match my personality through my entire home buying process.   Most importantly, I feel like she ALWAYS had "my back," and through all negotiations, she was my voice and made things happen. She went far and above any Realtor I have ever dealt with.

Suzanne O.

Earl Sanders and his team were amazing in helping my husband and I find our home. We were in a tight spot where we had to quickly find a house and move in all within 1 month, this team could not have been any faster, they jumped at the task, where others would have said no way. I send them all my  referrals, my husband and I could not be any happier in our new home. We Highly recommend Earl and his team to everyone, they are sure to please. 

Tiffany B.

Earl is the best Realtor® I have ever met. He will stop at nothing to get you into the house you love. He and his team always have time for showings or questions. He is a very family orientated person who knows how to take care of people and business. I have referred 3 people who would all say the same. If you want to find the house your looking for, call Earl with high hopes.


Vickie is an Excellent agent. She is caring and passionate about her work. She went over and beyond to help us find the perfect home. Showing us various homes in various areas (including various cities)! THANKS VICKIE! WE LOVE OUR HOME

Kathi C.

My wife and I were working with another realtor at the time. She was very nice, but she just didn't seem to have enough time for us. I was talking about how frustrated we were getting with the whole process while at work one day, and one of my co-workers referred me to Earl. I'm so happy he did. Earl made the entire process (although quite stressful sometimes) so much easier for us. He helped us find our starter home. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area, and he makes the process of finding a home so much more enjoyable. My wife and I will always refer him to anyone looking to find a home.

Trevor K.

Paul was great to work with. Professional friendly and extremely attentive. Selling our home and then buying a new home was a smooth process thanks to Paul. We appreciate everything he did for us.

Rachel L.

Bought our first starter home with Paul. We had a great time looking at homes and working with Paul. He was very knowledgeable and able to answer any/all questions we had. He kept us up to date during closing making it quick and easy.

Kristen W.

Vickie has been very pleasant to work with through our search for the perfect home we wanted. We went through numerous duplexes around Norfolk and Virginia Beach and when that search didn't work out, she was patient with us and answered our calls and texts anytime we needed her and as first time  home buyers, she offered us all the information we needed and made the process so much smoother than we expected. Finally decided to go with a single home which turned out to be the best option for us. I would HIGHLY recommend Vickie to anyone I know and I definitely look forward to working with her again in the future!

Naomi M.

I would highly recommend Angelo to anyone buying, selling or renting a home. He quickly and effectively answered all questions my husband and I had, and explained every aspect of the home buying process in detail.


Paul Bauer was immediately in contact with us when we decided to get with a realtor... He paid close attention to exactly what are likes were.... He was extremely quick on his game! From day one....We started our process on March 31st and had a home by April 13th...

Fred & Connie H.

Earl Sander was a great choice for my first home purchase. He walked me through the home buying process and was great at responding and helping me through the whole process. Earl has a great knowledge and is very easy to get in contact with. I will recommend him to everyone And will use his expertise to buy any future home as well.

Cris I.

My wife and I are first time homebuyers and initially, I was contacted by someone who got my information from a website I signed up with to view property listings. I briefly met with that agent, who at the time seemed a bit rushed, and I didn't get that warm, fuzzy feeling from him but, nevertheless, we told him what we wanted and gave him an opportunity. He was sending us property listings that were way out of our budget, not in the areas we requested and didn't get back to me on inquires. I was telling a friend of mine at work about the situation and, as luck would have it, he gave me Earl's number. From the get go, my wife and I got that warm fuzzy feeling. We weren't rushed, patience on Earl and Stacy's part were unlimited. We were visually and verbally educated on how the process works, what to expect and when and we looked at properties. When we picked s place, which was pretty quick, and got the ball rolling. Throughout the process, I was contacted and was updated. He negotiated the best deal for us, which we were happy with and all in all, it was a good home buying experience. I stand by my word and I can assure you that Earl has your best interests as his priority in every single aspect. He's not just a real estate agent and this wasn't just a home purchase. He's a friend and this is the beginning of a friendship.

Adam B.

Earl Sanders is one of the most upbeat and professionals I know in any field. He was very instrumental in helping me obtain a home that I love. And after you close on a home he's still offering assistance and maintains a relationship with you. Do yourself a favor and allow him to help you get  the home of your dreams.

Robert L.

Paul helped us find our first home. We had a large list of needs due to my significant other being in the military. He worked with us every step of the way, even with us being skeptical about finding a house in time! We found our dream house and Paul helped us secure it right away. He was very  communicative and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. He has an extensive knowledge about VA loans which was helpful due to this being my significant other's first home and VA loan. We were both amazed at how smooth the process was from putting in an offer to closing on our house. We will forever be grateful - thank you!

Clarice C.

I definitely recommend Earl & Stacy as my realtors. After my parents died, my husband and I rented the house to several co-workers, who were military on their last tour of duty before retiring. As soon as the last tenant left, we called Earl to list it. There was no question as to who to call, because Earl and Keith served together in the Navy and we knew Earl's reputation. Thank goodness for him. I was putting the house I grew up in on the market. This wasn't easy for me, but Earl & Stacy made it bearable. They were always in touch with what was happening and where we stood in the process. The house was on the market for less than a month from the time we first listed it to the closing date. We plan to use this team again in about four years when we put our house up for sale. We definitely recommend Team Earl & Stacy to help with a purchase, to sell, or to rent a property. GO TEAM!!!

Doris P.

We had a great experience with Earl Sanders. As an active duty military member there was a natural comfort level in working with a retired military member. Mr. Sanders took the time from the start to listen to what we wanted (price, location, size, condition) and helped guide us through the entire process. And trust us, we were not an easy couple to work with since my wife and I had differing opinions on what we wanted. Additionally, we completely changed our criteria months into our search, and he happily showed us plenty of houses to match our new wishes. I'm not exaggerating when I say he showed us probably close to 50 properties. We never felt that he pushed a particular property, or was ever pressured into making an offer. Once we did put in an offer we feel he did an excellent of negotiating on our behalf and we were able to get our house at price point well below the asking price. Earl was also very helpful in all the areas of the home buying process and has a wealth of POC's from his years serving in the Hampton Roads area.

Ryan D.

Earl is not only an amazing Real Estate Agent, but he is amazing person!!! He sold my home over a year ago, and there wasn't a point at anytime during the process that he didn't do everything within his power to secure a contract on my home. He is honest, he is understanding and above all he cares about the service that he is providing:). I recommend Earl with the highest of regard!!!!

Stephanie A.

Tom is very knowledgeable and responsible. I'm He helped me buy my first home. Always on time and very frindely. I'm very appreciated that. Highly recommended!

Olivia C.

My wife and I were first time home buyers and are very happy we chose to work with Earl and his team. He was very personable and made sure we understood every aspect of the home buying process. Throughout our time searching for potential properties Earl and Ryan were extremely responsive to all of  our calls, texts and emails. We would highly recommend using the Earl Sanders Team, especially if you are a first time home buyer

John R.

Earl Sanders was extremely helpful and patient during my first home buying experience. My wife and I changed our mind multiple times on what we wanted and saw many different houses before submitting our first offer. Earl and his team allowed us the flexibility to view homes after work hours and  on weekends. They encourages us to be picky and were never pushy or unresponsive.

Sean W.

This is a great group of professionals that made the home buying experience fun. They are professional individuals who are interested in your life, home and family needs. I was referred to them and now highly recommend them to anyone who has real estate needs.

Donta S.

Earl Sanders and Stacey Whitesell made the first time home buying process painless and found us our dream home under budget. Earl and Stacey work hard to ensure you're happy and confident with your decision. You will not find a better team to do business with.

Mike P.

After finding out we were pregnant with our first child, my husband and I knew we needed to find a more permanent place to settle down vs. moving after every lease period ended...however...we were on a VERY limited budget as I was still taking college classes and knew soon I would also have massive  amounts of student loan debt. Stacey worked endlessly to find us a home that fit our price range...even drove around with us an searched for For Sale By Owner's as to be sure we wouldn't miss every opportunity in a good area. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the home buying process ... always in contact and just super helpful the whole way through. I highly recommend her to others as you will not be disappointed.

Shelby W.

I have contacted Stacey multiple times regarding purchasing a newer bigger home to grow a family and / or about purchasing a home for investment / rental purposes. She really listens to her clients and doesn't try to push someone into something they don't want or need. She makes sure that you  become a client for life and not just another transaction.

Katy Y.

Earl helped me and my husband sell our first house. Turned something most people would be scared about into something easy and exciting. He had our home sell in less than 2 months. Very nice and very friendly guy.

Emily N.

I was on deployment when I found Earl. I gave him some things I was looking for in a house and he searched for the perfect house. His relentlessness and persistence found me the perfect house only a week after returning from overseas. He'd do anything and everything to help! I'd recommend him to everyone!!

Emily S.

Awesome service and knowledge. Great to work with them. They were very helpful in our home buying experience. Earl and his team were very patient with us and our process took a little longer since we had a hard time finding a house that we loved in our budget and area we wanted. They didn't give up  on us and would recommend them to everyone I know.


Earl helped my family and I throughout the process of buying our new home. He was a strong advocate for what I wanted and needed throughout the negotiation process. I was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism. I would definitely recommend him as the ideal real estate agent. He will go out  of his way to ensure that your home buying experience is an easy one. 

Melisa C.

Mr. Sanders is the best at what he does! He helped my husband and I with our first home in 2012. Buying a home for the first time is a scary process. He did not pressure us and thoroughly explained everything. He always says, "Tell me what you want...I work for you!” He is a realtor who is trustworthy and honest. We appreciated everything that he has done for us! We are now working with him on buying our second even scarier process, since we will own two homes. He was also helpful in directing us to a property management company for our first home. With Mr. Sanders by our sides, it's a piece of cake! We look forward to using him again when we decide to sell our first home.

LaSheena R.

Ryan was very patient and understanding with us during the process of looking for a good house. Not once did he make us feel pressured and always reassured us. He's always full of life and smiling which kept us positive and awake! Very reliable and always honest when you had certain questions about  the area, house, and process, etc. He does his best to help you and make everything as convenient and smooth as possible. He's amazing at what he does! Definitely recommend!

Shaira S.

I am a single mom of 2 children and recently transferred to Virginia from overseas. Although Mr. Cordero works for the seller he went above and beyond for my family. His flexibility and customer service surpassed my expectations for purchasing our first home. I explained to him what we were  looking for and he was able to find us exactly that! 

La Toya S.

He is a very nice person to do business with he will get you the best house for your money he won't stop till you are completely satisfied he found the perfect house for me and i am perfectly satisfied thank you earl. My daughter will be using your services here in the near future.

Mike W.

My wife was looking for the new home, I didn't think we would qualify so I pretty much blew it off. Carl's team rescheduled our open house to accomadate our schedule, submitted our information for financial review and notified us that we prequalified before we returned home. We wanted that house  and his team had papers drawn up for our intent to buy and we signed that the very next day. Carl's team was so efficient, we could have closed in 20 days. The back log for appraisal due to an increase in refinancing held us up over a weekend. That is a statement and not a complaint. I have moved several times in my career, I never had a professional team as Carl's that made the process smooth and easy. He will be our next realtor when we sell and buy. 

John T.

Earl was awesome. After having my house listed with another realtor for a year with very little to none activity, I listed the house with Earl. Earl had a offer on my house with a month and was sold a month after that. I would recommend Earl and team to anyone needing to buy or sell a house.

Christina J.

Earl is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with. He has been there for me every time I have needed him. His relaxed and no pressure attitude toward my family's home buying experience made it a pleasure to work with him. I would recommend him to my family and friends any day. 



Earl Sanders is by far the most experienced realtor that anyone could ask for. His devotion to his clients ensures that no questions go unanswered and no concern goes unoticed. His commitment to his clients makes you a part of his family, even well after he finds your dream house. Earl is the best man for your needs when it comes to finding your perfect house, and will stop at nothing to make sure you make it yours.

Brent W.

This team was so helpful in getting our family into the home that best fit our needs. From the first appointment with explaining the entire buying process all the way through, anything and everything we signed was thoroughly explained. This process was so very helpful being first time buyers in  understanding a good deal from a bad, we have zero complaints about this team. Each individual that we worked with was friendly and professional. The dedication to their jobs shines bright, I would recommend them over and over!

Jentri B.

Paul was great. Responded whenever I had questions. He stopped in the middle of his golf game on a Sunday afternoon to start the paperwork for an offer on a well sought after house. You won't be disappointed.

Foster J.

Earl and Stacy worked very hard in selling my home. They are passionate and dedicated to ensuring their clients have the best outcome. I consider them as friends and would highly recommend them to friends and family.

Carol R.

He's just the best. Hands down. #teamearlsanders

Amanda C.

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Earl and his team was when helping myself and my husband purchase our first home. It was extremely easy to get in touch with him and we were in his office and setting up appointments almost immediately. My husband and I were by no means experienced  or even prepared but Earl gave us all of the resources and tools we needed to get started. We were very nervous of being taken advantage of due to our lack of knowledge but we had just the opposite. Earl and his team would not make a move without making sure we had all of the necessary information and were sure it is what we wanted. We went through about 3 homes before we found the one we wanted and each step seemed easier as we kept going through the process. Even to this day Earl and his team answer all of our phone calls and messages regarding things we don't know or need help with. HANDS DOWN one of the best real estate teams!

Victoria C.

Tom was an excellent realtor. He was available when I needed his assistance and it didn't matter if it were 6am or 10pm. He was in constant contact with me and helping me through ever step. He was very professional and knowledgeable in every step. He will stay on top of other realtors during  the negotiation process to ensure they are timely as well. Tom even went as far as doing their job completing paperwork the other realtor should've done. So it will only let me do 1 review. I have to mention Vicki Benvenuto, Tom's wife. I originally started working with her and got the services of Tom as well. She was great, sending me houses to view at 9pm so I wouldn't miss an opportunity on it. She showed me houses North, East, West and South, high priced, low priced and medium priced. She had honest opinions of places we viewed, not just trying to sell me anything. I truly appreciate all you did for me. Thank you both. Vinnie

Vinnie A.

We couldn't have asked for a better realty team. Buying our first home, we had no clue about the process. Earl and Ryan sat down with us and broke down and explained every step before we even started. There was a mistake made on the sellers part, and Earl continued to do his best to help us  through. In the end he had gotten us a better deal on the same house than what we had started with. I would recommend them to anyone!! 

Amanda K.

Earl and his team are exceptional!! Our house sold in just two months!! We would like to thank you for all you have done for us. We are truly grateful to have found a realtor with such passion and dedication for his clients. We are more than happy to recommend you to any future homebuyer . Thank you for being an extraordinary real estate agent, but a new trusted friend. Can't wait to purchase our next new home with you!!

Ryan N.

Very down to earth explains each step of the process so you understand everything. Very helpful and would highly recommend for anyone looking in virginia.

Donald O.

Very professional, friendly, low pressure realtor and he will continue to stay in touch even after your home sale or buying experience is complete. very responsive and attentive through entire process.

Johnathan H.

Joe helped me find the perfect home for me. He was very patient and worked around my work schedule to look at homes: including weekends and even in snow storms. The entire purchasing process felt so easy. And Joe was always available if I had questions or concerns. Even If you are just thinking of buying a house I recommend you call Joe ASAP.

Victoria D.


Earl did everything in his power to get us the home we wanted. My wife and I were new to buying a home and have rented various homes for over 10 years. Earl made it very easy by breaking everything down in steps on what we would expect and what we would have to do to move forward in the process of buying a home. His knowledge and experience helped my wife and I understand each step of the way. Earl is very respectfully, courteous, and professional. We found our dream home in March of 2013 and have been very happy with our purchase. We still keep in contact with Earl today. THANK YOU EARL SANDERS.

I Recommend Earl Sanders to anyone looking for a home.

Joe C.

Earl's customer service is outstanding!! I could not imagine going through the home buying process with anyone else because he made it so smooth and easy for us! He was very knowledgeable and provided us with everything we needed and so much more! As first time home buyers we were afraid of the whole process at first and had a million questions along the way but Earl and his team made sure we were well informed the whole way. Earl has a great attitude, tons of patience, and was well organized with everything!! I love that Earl has become one of our great friends that we can turn to anytime not just our Realtor! Earl did such an outstanding job we referred him to a close friend of ours that had been trying to sell his house and had been dealing with the "everyday real estate agents". Earl and his team took great care of a close friend and we put our full trust in Earl...He found us the home of our DREAMS and we couldn't be more thankful!!

Michaela S.

Ryan is very professional and easy to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the properties we viewed and was able to get me exactly what I wanted for a great price.

Zach P.

I will definitely recommend Earl to my family and friends. He will not stop searching until you find your DREAM house and walk with you through the requirements and steps on how the process will go. Thanks Earl!

Danhil C.

We had a great experience with buying a home with Paul. He is extremely genuine and trustworthy. He is very helpful and was always available to answer questions. He worked around our schedule and was respectful of our ideas and wishes. He is an overall really great guy and I would recommend him to  anyone looking to purchase a home! He will help you navigate through the whole process so that the experience is painless.

Ross & Kayla C.

Paul's professionalism and dedication to his job went above and beyond my expectations. I told him what I wanted in a home and exact area I wanted to live at and he made that happen for me and my family. Buying a home can be very frustrating, but Paul definitely took the stress right out of it.   Thank you Paul, I definitely will be recommending you to anyone looking to buy or sale a home.

Matthew R.

I would recommend Earl to anyone! He is very knowledgeable and knows what he's doing! He helped us find a great home and when I got orders, helped my family and I sell it. He was there every step of the way, guiding us and answering any questions we threw at him. Earl is also prior military so he was able to understand where we were coming and what we were looking for. When it came time to sell he knew exactly what I needed to do and what would be better for my family and I and sold our house in just a couple months! My family and I can't express enough how grateful we are to him!

Katherine H.

Paul was extremely helpful explaining all the elements of the process to my satisfaction. He took the time to listen and work with me to find more comparable homes , which strengthened the listing price. This extra time and effort led to a higher closing price of my home. Above all else, his  honesty and integrity were integral to my successful real estate sale.

Kevin K.

Ryan was a great, understanding, very polite, and extremely knowledgeable gentleman. Ryan helped all the way to the very end of the house buying process. He still stays in touch with me just to make sure everything is going great and nothing’s out of place. Thank you so much Ryan for all your help and information you have gave to me.

Kale T.

They were a great help and would recommend them to anyone interested in buying or renting a house. They made it really easy to find and purchase my house. When I first sat down with Earl and Stacey they provide me a step by step of how the home buying process work. They didn't try to sell me a certain house . They took all of my needs into mind and only showed me those houses and they kept in contact with me throughout the whole process.

Kyle C.

It was a enjoyable experience working with Earl and Stacey. They made things super easy and stress free. Their experience is stellar and excellent communicators. Would highly recommend them to family and friends.

Diane M.

Earl did a fantastic job for us.He advised us through out the buying process .When all the houses were selling at above market value he got us ours for nearly 50000 less. We are happy he saved us some money . We all feel appreciated when he has the family events he puts up for his clients.I would  highly recommend him.

Charmaine P.

Hands down one of the coolest, most professional, and highly experienced guys out there. He is a retired Navy chief who applies the Navy's core values to assisting his fellow shipmates get the homes of their dreams. We were the first to view our current home as it hit the market, five minutes later we were in his office writing up an offer. Offer accepted. Earl truly makes the customer feel in charge and at ease, and if the customer is not happy neither is he. When we met Earl he did not come off as a stranger, it felt like we knew him for years. Earl kept us in the loop every step of the way and was never too busy to answer all of our annoying questions or to hear our concerns. We would have not done it any other way. Earl is THE hard-charging go-to-guy in the Hampton Roads vicinity. Don't miss out. Delighted first time buyers and living in style, Max S.

Max S.

Earl is amazing! I have dealt with about a dozen agents from helping my friends and family with their home buying ventures, and I have to say, Earl is by far the best. He listens to what you want, and is very easy going. Earl is very quick to respond, regardless of the day of the week. I could easily write page after page on how great he is, but I'll try to keep it short. I recommend him to everyone and anyone who's interested in a real estate agent. A really important note about Earl, is that he will look out for you, and assist you every step of the way! Several of the houses my wife and I looked at seemed great to us, but Earl noticed problems and pointed them out to us, and gave some ideas for solutions. He also worked hard to make sure we got our house for the lowest cost possible. This saved us a lot of money and grief. Other agents would have just moved forward with closing and not said anything, or try to save us money. We are very happy with the house we bought, and highly recommend Earl! He takes the stress out of home buying, and really makes it fun!

Alex C.

My husband and I didn’t know anything about the process of buying a home, but Paul was amazing from the start. He explained everything we needed to know and made it easy and stress-free! He went above and beyond to help us and I’m grateful the process went so smoothly. I am so happy for everything  he’s done for us & we were able to find the perfect home! Thank you Paul!!

Carly H.

Earl's team was amazing. Ryan was our showing agent and he was extremely helpful in the process. Earl made this process easy and as least confusing as possible. We plan on using Earl Sanders Team for any Real estate needs while living in Virginia!

Will K.

Couldn't have ask for a better team. Any question I had they would answer it right on or if they didn't know they would find out and contact me. Super friend off the get go and will not rush you to find your perfect home. Awesome experience.

Ian C.

Earl is the Agent to go to when buying a home!

He is very knowledgeable and will go out his way to make sure everything goes smoothly. With his years of experience and knowledge, Earl was able to provide his insight and eased the whole process. Earl is extremely responsive, very professional, courteous, and personal. I would highly recommend Earl Sanders to anyone looking for a realtor.

Necole A.

I was referred to Earl by my best friend, who had a great experience with him and his team, while purchasing her first home.   I've worked with several agents over the years and I can honestly say that Earl is one of the best I've had the pleasure of working with.  He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and responds quickly to any questions.  Earl takes the stress off the client and makes them feel at ease as they go through the buying process.

Anna S.

I am active duty and we were given a very short time to make a coast to coast move before departing for an extended trip in support of national interests. The Earl Sanders team made the process of buying a home, for us as first time buyers, an enjoyable experience. The stress of "are you going to  get it or not" was still their, but we never had a moment of hesitation or worry of whether or not we were doing the right thing. Everyone of his team worked around our truncated time table with ease and professionalism.

Aaron C.

I was referred to Earl by a great friend after having a less than pleasant experience with another Realtor. As a first time buyer I was nervous about the process and Earl was quick to make me feel comfortable. He worked around my schedule (and my then 2 year-old's schedule) to show me house after house until finding the perfect one for our family. My husband was also deployed at the time and Earl and his team went above and beyond to make sure EVERYTHING was in order so we had a house to live in when he returned. I can't say enough good things about him as a Realtor and as a friend to our family!

Candice P.

Great team to work with especially as a military family. They paired us up with the perfect realtor based on our wants, personalities and financial situation. We were referred to multiple companies that provide services required for the home buying process that were reasonable in price and did great  work. Everything was setup and planned out in a very organized manner. The hardest part of the whole process was moving! We recommend this team for anyone looking to buy in the Hampton Roads area.

Sara T.

Earl is amazing! He was recommended to us through a friend in the Navy and we are so glad we heard about him. We were purchasing a home while living out of town and while clueless about the best places to live in Hampton Roads. In addition to that, we were picky and indecisive as it was our second home and we had a better idea of what we wanted.

Earl was extremely patient and never once made us feel like we were inconveniencing him. He did everything to make sure we were in the right location and the best house for us. We love our house now and plan on working with him again if we decide to sell/buy again in the future!

Krystal E.

Superb! Earl Sanders and Stacey Whitesell make a great team! Earl was highly recommended by a friend to help sell my parents' house. Right from the start, Earl was so easy to talk with and extremely knowledgeable that we knew Earl was the real estate agent for us! He was such a pleasure to work  with! He absolutely went above and beyond all of our expectations to make this sale as easy as possible for us. My parents had moved to another city before their house went on the market, so Earl was invaluable to us for all of the numerous times he met contractors, appraisers, and inspectors at the house for them. We are so grateful to him for his kindness, caring, patience, and flexibility. Earl is hard-working, smart, friendly, and experienced, and it was a pleasure for us to get to know him. Earl and Stacey were always quick to respond with answers to questions we had and provided updates immediately. I happily give my highest recommendation!

Patty D.

After much thought to sell my house in the Virginia Beach area, I was highly recommended by my friend Joe to contact Earl. He was very knowledgeable in his field, very easy to talk to and made you comfortable and confident throughout the process. During the waiting mode, he continued to keep the communication going and updated me each time of any new event. Whether selling or buying a home , its never an easy process. Earl was very professional and on with the game plan. Thank you Earl....Miriam

Miriam R.

Earl has been a great Agent, he is always available for any questions, even after our purchase. He has continued to stay in contact with us throughout the years and has made sure if we ever need anything else, or we have any questions, he is there if we need him.

Jordana B.

Earl spent weekend after weekend helping us find our home since those were the only days we were available to look. His knowledge of the area is fantastic and was very important to us seeing as neither of us had been in the area before. We gave him our "musts" and our preferences, and Earl generated a list of home for us to see. Our relationship with him hasn't ended since we bought our home, either! He holds semi-annual client appreciation events and checks in on us regularly. He will be our realtor as long as we can keep him!

Elizabeth M.

We have now sold one and purchased two houses with Earl and his team, and could not be happier with our experiences. They are on the ball and quick to respond to any of our questions or concerns. Professional yet still made it a fun and exciting experience. I would urge anyone buying or selling in the Hampton Roads area to put your trust in these guys. Earl, Stacey and Ryan are our people for as long as we can keep them!

Tyler M.

OUTSTANDING! Absolutely amazing team to work with! The Earl sanders team made it easy for me to purchase my first home. With the knowledge and experience Everything was a breeze.

Ashley K.

Working with Earl Sanders and his team, especially Stacey Whitesell, was a pleasure. Earl and Stacey were very knowledgeable and very positive in selling our townhome. They walked us through every step in the process. We will definitely recommend them and use them again.

James & Maurine T.

Ryan did an excellent job in selling our home in 45 days. All of the closing details were handled professionally and were complete. Ryan's market knowledge and the proper pricing of our home led to the quick sale at the right price.

Sharla S.

Through out my experience with Earl and his team as a first time home buyer this transition was smooth. Him and his team's dedication to the client is unmatched by anyone else. To them you're more then just a sale would definitely recommend them to anyone I know ow looking to buy a home.

John P.

Very informative and everything we looked for in a realtor. Will recommend to everyone I know and will use him for my next house. Paul made my first home buying experience really easy and explained every step of the home buying process from start to finish.

Emmanuel T.

We loved working with Earl! He was very patient with us and worked around our crazy schedules. We are looking forward to working with him again in the future. :)

Elizabeth M.

Best first time buying!  Was able to go through the whole process and had an understanding with my wife being deployed still giving us time on getting word back from her on her thoughts.

Josh H.

The Earl Sanders team helped me well beyond what was required of them to help me purchase a home back in Virginia. From beginning to end they were an excellent help!

Gerard R.

I recently purchased a home with the help of Stacey Whitesell, Realtor from Earl Sanders team. She made it a very fun experience! She was always cheerful and bubbly as we toured homes with my family in tow. I was not in a hurry to make my purchase because it was to be an investment property. Stacey  was always friendly and patient as she showed me numerous homes throughout the Hampton Roads area. When I finally found the perfect home she handled all the negotiations swiftly and professionally. I have already, and will continue to, encourage friends and co-workers to contact Stacey Whitesell so they, too, can enjoy a fun and stress-free home search or selling experience!

Donna V.

Earl helped my husband and I buy our first home. He works often with first first time buyers, clearly explaining the entire process. He has amazing patience and a great attitude. Buying a house can be stressful, I'm glad for this experience we had Earl by our side. I will recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy a home

Ashley I.

We had a phenomenal experience with Earl! My husband and I needed to move fairly quickly, and we had to house hunt with our baby (which is not always the easiest process). Earl was extremely patient and flexible. He was able to work around our schedule and was always very responsive, even after  normal working hours. While we were very pleased with the house hunting experience, Earl really assisted us the most with helping us close on our home and walking us through the whole process (we are first-time home owners). He was essential during the home inspection, and I truly believe that he negotiated a fair price for our home. Overall we couldn't be happier with our experience or recommend him enough!

Leslie J.

I contacted Earl Sanders about 3 years ago to tour a home. My family lived on the Southside and we were moving to the Peninsula. Not only did Earl find us the perfect home for our family, but I was so impressed with his service that I asked him to sell my home on the Southside. He has extensive knowledge of both the Southside and the Peninsula markets. Earl helped us every step and provided excellent customer service. I would highly recommend Earl Sanders become YOUR real estate professional. Once Earl helps you with your real estate needs, you will feel like you have a friend for life.

Kay H.

I bought my first house and I went through Earl because a friend suggested him. He was incredibly helpful with all my questions and helped me find a place I loved. I got a amazing deal with a super low interest rate. I love my house. He made buying a house for the first time really easy. I would not say he eliminated my stress because lets face it its buying a house, but he did make the process feel like I was making a great decision.

Jill F.

Alex is hands down the best there is. He will definitely get you into the right house for you. He went above and beyond to find us our house and I would recommend him to anyone.

Christopher D.

We spend years looking for a house. We had dealt with our fair share or realtors. We were being shown houses that already had bids, that were not in our desired areas, etc. Earl was always willing to meet me every time I thought I had found the "one". He was constantly sending me updates when new houses became available. He dealt with my husband and I (who did not want the same things). He always met us with a smile and was willing to do whatever we needed. He still keeps in contact with us. He is above and beyond anything you could ever want or expect from a realtor. Our only regret is not finding Earl earlier on in the process. We cannot say enough wonderful things about him. We are very happy in our home, but if we ever needed more room.....Earl will be the guy we ran to.

Manda T.

My wife and I purchased our home with the help of Earl and Ryan. They were courteous, professional and responsive to all our questions and concerns. There wasn't any feeling of pressure and they provided input when I was heading down the wrong path. I can vouch for their honesty and integrity and would recommend them to my mother. You are in good hands with team Sanders!! 

Shane D.

Earl is the best, very professional, dedicated to finding exactly the right house, very knowledgeable of the area, and extremely helpful (we were moving into the area from out of state). He made everything go smoothly for us doing most of the work for us. We couldn't be happier that we found Earl  to find our new home.

William A.

Earl and his team were amazing! Everything we needed to know was laid out right in front of us. We always knew what was going on. Ryan was constantly in contact with us and willing to help us whenever we needed it. By far the best experience imaginable! Would recommend you guys to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you for being there every step of the way! You guys are the best!!! 

Joey C.

OUTSTANDING AGENT! Earl has all the qualities I was looking for in a Real Estate; reachable, responsive, proactive, informative, and listens. Military stationed out of state and involved with so many other stressful dealings, I trusted Earl to market/sell my house and he did so professionally  with my best interest in mind. In hindsight, he helped ease my worries and no doubt the absolute right choice. I highly recommend Earl without any reservation.

Ty H.

Outstanding work! Had nothing but a good experience buying my first home and Tom conducted himself professionally at all times as well as made himself available at all hours of the day! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a realtor.

Jesse A.

Earl Sanders and his team have earned my strongest possible personal endorsement. As an out of state owner, Earl and Stacey took care of all the logistics to get a property that had been rented long term fixed up and on the market. In one week, he brought an offer that was 96% of the asking price. After this deal fell through due to serious home inspection issues, he re-grouped, got the issues sorted, and had another very fair deal done in three weeks. I could not be more pleased with the outstanding performance of this professional team. Hire them now!! You will not be disappointed! 

James H.

Buying our first home was thee best experience because of Earl Sanders. He not only educated us of the areas we were looking in, but he treated us like family. He made the experience of buying our first home easy because he answered our billion and 1 questions as well as showed us several homes above and beyond our highest expectations. We would recommend Earl Sanders to everyone we know.

Luke M.

I was looking for an agent to assist me and my husband to find a new home and as I searched for an agent I came across Earl Sanders-retired Navy, many years of experience on Zillow. I called him to schedule some viewings and he sent me his best man Ryan Schoch. I really like how Ryan said he's  here to show me homes not sell, meaning he was not pushy trying to make a sale. He listened and showed me many homes. When we found the home that I connected with and wanted to buy. Earl Sanders and team - Stacey and Ryan Schoch stayed with me from the time my husband and I made the bid through to the Financing with Movement mortgage - Leslie Herring. They all make such a wonderful team and all have wonderful communication skills. Yes I will recommend this team of experts Earl Sanders-Remax and team Stacey and Ryan, and Financing-Leslie to my friends and families. They are very knowledgeable, quick, and provided excellent service in all they did for my husband and me, thank you.

Margie T.

Earl is very friendly, understanding, and knowledgeable. He helped us find exactly what we wanted and in a very short amount of time! We had a very pleasurable experience with buying our house. We were referred to Earl by a friend and wouldn't want any one else as our agent. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Linzie M.

Helped me and my husband sell our first house. Turned something most people would be scared about into something easy and exciting. Be had our home sell in less than 2 months. Very nice and very friendly guy.

Emily N.

We moved from OH to VA and Earl & his team made our move so easy! They provided all the information we needed to set up our utilities, and provided information on home inspectors etc. We had so many questions since we weren't from the area. They always answered our calls & emails promptly!

Wendy A.

If you are looking for someone that will put up with your indecisive decision making and stubborn choices. This is your guy. This was our first home buy and Ryan really went to the mat for us. When I requested information on a home Ryan emailed, called and texted me within the hour. He is very  efficient and always available. He was flexible with our work schedules one being night and the other day. He gave us plenty of options and really respected our need for time price and location. Which lets all be honest you don't see on T.V. We didn't give up on anything. We got our dream home in Virginia Beach and we are one month in and loving it. Ryan was great with helping us asses our credit. There were a few discrepancies with my spouse being a twin. WHO KNEW!!!! After that it was smooth sailing. Ryan had frequent contact with our mortgage company and the buyers team to assure everything was going through smoothly. He would contact us immediately otherwise. We had our closing date set but in the end with all of Ryan's work we moved in a whole 2 weeks early just in time for the holidays.

Isis B.

My wife and I just bought our first house and Earl was extremely helpful through the entire process. So much of the process seemed overwhelming when we first began but Early helped breakdown the process and explain what was going on along the way. Between Earl's knowledge of our intended area (Chesapeake) and negotiation skills we were able to find the perfect home, make and offer and close on our first home extremely quickly. I don't even know what to say about Earl other than the fact that he made every step of the process painless and exciting. If you go with Earl, you are in good hands and will definitely find the home you are looking for. 

Salvador U.

Earl is very knowledgeable about the area and the business of buying and selling. He provided answers to all my many questions in a timely manner and found me a house that fits my family needs. Really enjoyed working with Earl and would recommend his services.

Ray & Amy

Ryan is awesome and really was a huge help! He was very knowledgeable and was willing to work with my schedule !!! He kept me informed throughout the whole process and answered any questions I had during. I would recommend and have already to anyone looking for housing or real estate needs.

Chris B.

I have used Earl Sanders to purchase and sell a home over the last five years and find myself returning to Earl for assistance to purchase once more. He is a true professional that knows the local market and is receptive to his clients needs in a home. If your looking for an agent that returns your calls and demonstrates genuine dedication to customer service, call him today!

Vicky B.

Earl is a down to earth Realtor who listens to the needs of his clients and goes above and beyond for overall satisfaction. I was told by friends that buying a house was one of the most stressful things ever to do, but Earl made it one of the easiest. As a first time buyer, I expressed what I was looking for, and he worked and mentored within what I wanted vice what he could sell. Through every step of the process, he was there to explain things in easy to understand terms, by the time it was closing day, I had no lingering questions about signing my papers. But the most unique quality about Earl and his team, is that the support doesn't stop after buying your home, he is still there to answer questions and network about renovations and future upgrades for your home. With Earl, you don't gain a Realtor, you gain a neighbor and a friend.

Vince P.

We worked with Paul for a year in search of a home in the Hampton roads area during that time we got to know him to be a very knowledgeable, reliable and honest. He was very careful in paying attention to our needs for a home. Would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy/rent a home.

Alex G.

My family’s experience with Paul was wonderful. He was patient, kind, and very informative. I would recommend him to anyone looking to start their home buying process.

Jeffery F.

Earl and his team where the best, almost didn't matter the time of day or night if I had a question or needed something he was on top of it. Even two years after buying the house I can still call and ask the most random question and he will get back to me in a hurry. Will definitely be using him and his team in the future.


Excellent Realtor! We had a long list of must haves and Tom made sure he only showed us what would accommodate our needs. He was professional and always prepared! You would be in great hands with Tom.

Anna W.

Earl helped me buy my home in Virginia Beach in 2005 during the big housing crisis. Every home I had him check was already under contract but he was patient as I gave him home after home to look at. He found me my dream home with all of my wants. He checks on me every month and has never failed  to provide me with help when asked. Top Notch!!

Elizabeth V.

Alex went above and beyond in helping my wife and I find and purchase our home. He was very patient and understanding of what we wanted, and never pushed us. Extremely responsive and personable, buying a house with him was simple, fast, and fun. He did an amazing job negotiating the purchase and closing and got us everything we wanted. He is really knowledgeable of the area and can get you into the area that fits you and your family best. If you want to find your perfect house with a pleasant and easy experience definitely contact Alex. 

Ryan B.

My husband and I were looking for our first time home in a specific area with specific requirements . Earl and Stacey did an amazing job at helping us through this important decision. They were knowledgeable , easy to talk to , always available , very professional yet personable, and all around  great people to have on your side in this process . They walk you through everything in away that is clear to understand and easy to follow along.They took me to more than 30 homes never giving up on finding the perfect one suitable for my family while always looking for our best interest in every aspect of the way . This is the hardest working team I've seen and hands down best group of people to work with . Highly recommended for anything involved with buying a home as my experience was excellent.

Josely M.

Earl was awesome and gave very sound advice in how to move my house fast and at a good price. Following his advice we were under contract within 2 days with everything waiting on the seller to complete.

Todd R.

Jamie is taking care of our needs and was quick to respond to our questions. She is taking care of the process while we are out of the country and we're hoping everything goes smoothly.

Byron M.

They helped me purchase my first home with great urgency as if it was Their own house! I don't think my close would have went as smooth with any other team. They were honest and gave me solid genuine advice and necessary knowledge to make sure that I was making the right decision for my fiancé and  I. Definitely would place more stars if I could!

Tiffany H.

My recent first time home buying experience went exceptionally smooth thanks to Stacey Whitesell and Earl Sanders. Their professional work ethic and attitude made me feel like I was always in the loop and never doubtful of their experience in the field. Over all I had a very pleasant first time home buyer experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for a home.

Samuel W.

After renting in VB since 2010, we decided it was time to buy, as interest rates were very low. Our first RE agent was fine, but just not a good match for us. My wife found Earl Sanders on the internet, called him directly and was impressed from the start. We were assigned a newer (but very  capable) agent named Ryan S. Ryan is both energetic and patient and took the time to show us MANY houses, and thru several offers/counter offers that did not lead to a home purchase. Ryan was patient with our questions and educated us on some of the finer points of RE negotiations. We ended up purchasing an BO home that was off the market the first time we saw it, then it re-appeared and Ryan jumped on it. The only reason all are not 5 stars is not really Earl Sanders Team's fault. Half of the purchase transaction was with another RE Agency, a Bank and HUD. All of which except the RE Agency are a black boxes, meaning we had no insight into and slow responses from them. I would highly recommend Earl Sanders team and Ryan S.

Bruce T.

Earl is the best! We were moving from out of town and he helped us from near and far. He is an expert in the local market and as dedicated as they come! We highly recommend Earl and his team! Thanks again Earl

Doug S.

Earl helped my husband and I buy our first home. He was exceptionally helpful throughout the process. We were very anxious to find a place to settle and Earl was very patient, taking us to whichever homes we wanted to see, and holding our hands throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable and connected, and provided efficient resources for us during each step of the purchase. He also provided sound and responsible advice along the way, which we appreciated as first time homebuyers. We recommend Earl, and will be using him again in the future!

Kristen K.

Very personable and down to earth team! Met every expectation I had and exceeded others I didn't realize were as important. Bought 2 homes with Earls team and still loving both of them! Highly recommended to anyone affiliated with the military as he understands the lifestyle that comes with it. Very accommodating to those needs!

Mike B.

The Earl Sanders team was amazing! Ryan helped me find the perfect house in the exact neighborhood that I wanted. Buying a house couldn't have been easier!

Erica Y.

This team is outstanding! Not only willing to help make out home buying less stressful! While making a purchase can be stressful enough doing so from another state 1200 miles away can certainly add to the stress. Our agent Caroline went far above any expectations we had. She not only looked at  and face timed with me as she walked through properties, she went back again when We needed her to. Caroline never kept us guessing when we had questions and concerns, she was willing and certainly responded in a prompt and fair amount of time. Caroline was able to get answers to questions we had and get the ball rolling at many times when we couldn't. We highly recommend this team and have been very happy and satisfied with the level of professionalism and dedication that was given to us

Shari C.

Outstanding Realtor! By far the best at what he does! If you need a home he is the one to talk to!!! He was always available when we have questions. He knows all about the different areas in Hampton roads.

Melissa B.

I don't think of Earl as just my Realtor. I think of Earl and his team as great friends. I have known him for many years. I purchased my current home with him, and two other properties. He has the answers and he will help when ever he is called. After the purchase of my properties I had no remorse. I felt very confident and secure in the decisions that were made. And all of them were made with Earls guidance. I was not forced into anything I felt uncomfortable with. When ever I had concern he told me to step back and take my time. My favorite quote from Earl is. "If the deal doesn't feel right its not right." I always got the right deal with Earl!

Virl R.

Highly recommend Earl and his team when searching for your dream home! My family and I are a military family and the team helped us buy our first home in the Virginia Beach area. The team was very understanding with us, considering we were 300 miles away when we were trying to buy. They are patient  and willing when it comes to you. I feel that their knowledge and expertise definitely helped us when it came to our wants and needs in finding a home.

William G.

Earl was very responsive to our needs and was willing to spend the time show us many homes (20) over a three day period until we found the one we wanted. He processed all the necessary paper work required for our signature and also arranged for us the meet with a broker for the loan. Earl is what is defined as a true professional. His knowledge of the Hampton area is second to none. Earl is the true example of One Stop Shop for purchasing a home.

Richard D.

Great experience. He made buying a house extremely easy. Always stayed in constant communication. He responds to any question quickly. He negotiated perfectly to get us the best deal. He had tons of knowledge of the entire area. An outstanding person to have on your side.

Chris B.

Earl is a great realtor, problem free home buying and the best part was making a good friend along the way. I couldn’t recommend anyone better. He treats you like family not a client and that was important to us. He is the best.

Joe Z.

Ryan was an amazing realtor. He helped us find an amazing house within our budget and found exactly what we were looking for. He treats everyone like family and does a wonderful job night and day to find the right home.

Becca S.

Earl and his team are great. If you are looking for a real estate agent that is honest and available Earl Sanders is your guy. He knows the Hampton Roads area very well and works very hard for members of our military.

Sarah C.

Earl and his team came highly recommended by a friend and I can see why. Earl and his team did an "OUTSTANDING" job of getting us into our new home. He laid out the process from start to finish and set us up with a great mortgage company as well. Earl's team were honest and clear in recommendations  were always available to answer questions. I will definitely be recommending him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home

Eric C.

I have used Earl Sanders to purchase and sell a home over the last five years and find myself returning to Earl for assistance to purchase once more. He is a true professional that knows the local market and is receptive to his clients needs in a home. If your looking for an agent that returns your calls and demonstrates genuine dedication to customer service, call him today!

Steve B.

Earl worked with my husband and I while we searched for a starter home. We didn't know anything about the home buying process, but he set up a meeting with us in his office and talked with us about the entire process. Through all the questions we asked and all the homes we saw, he was extremely patient with us, and very helpful. He helped us find the right home for our family! He was such a pleasure to work with. Without hesitation, I will refer him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Earl appreciates his clients as much as his clients appreciate him. He holds an annual cookout to show his appreciation to his clients,. How awesome is that?! Earl goes above and beyond. You will not regret working with him!!

Gabreale K.

Earl is a stand up guy. I did not realize that Realtors® work so hard for their clients until I met Earl. When we told him out criteria/requirements for the home we wanted, he was sending us suggestions every single day. He constantly worked with our schedule to show us homes regardless of day or time. Also was always there to give us a true, honest, professional opinion about every property, good or bad, to ensure we were not missing a single thing. He has amazing customer appreciation and my family still hears from him several times throughout the year. I would never go to anyone else but Earl Sanders.


Tom is very personable and provided invaluable feedback to get us the very best for what we could afford. We will absolutely work with Tom in the future if the need should arise.

Zach & Heather H.

The time was finally right for us to purchase our first home. Earl Sanders came highly recommended to us by mutual Navy friends. Earl met with us and helped answer all of our questions/worries. We then began the search for our home. It felt like an eternity, but Earl stayed positive and helpful through the whole process. We looked at numerous homes trying to find the "one". We eventually found it and Earl was crucial in making the closing deal for us. We have been in our home for five years now and we couldn't be happier with our choice. We would highly recommend Earl Sanders.

Mike M.

I recently bought my first home working with earl and his team. As a first time buyer I was very unsure of what to expect but they made it very easy. It was a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone. My personal showing agent was Ryan and he was great! He was willing to go above and beyond to show us houses at the drop of a hat. He was very flexible and responsive.

Andrew A.

Excellent realtor. Highly recommend Tom he always answered the phone and was on top of everything throughout the process of buying my home. We had a unique situation and Tom work with us to make sure everything was taken care of. If you want someone who knows how to get things done and double  checks his work Tom is the guy for you

James E.

Working with Tom was a great experience. He was very thorough and honest. He provided us with the best option for our circumstance. I would definitely recommend using Tom. There aren’t many realtors that will actually work for you.

Kevin T.

Earl helped us to quickly sell our home and was able to help us to find one to buy in the short window of time available. He was able to coordinate the details an made the process as stress-free as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend him and when/if we sell our current home, we will absolutely use him as our Realtor again.

Lindsay R.

Thank you so much Earl! His team helped us to sell my home. We weren't even in the same state and trusted him to get my home ready to be sold but also secured it and winterized it. He went beyond the call of duty to make things go as smoothly as possible. Would highly recommend this team for your  real estate needs!


**Earl exceeded our expectations in every way!** As a military family PCSing from Pearl Harbor to Norfolk we were unsure what to expect from a real estate agent being so far away, and if they would truly be looking out for our interests. Initially we started working with a few agents in the  Norfolk area to identify our best option. What impressed us about Earl was how responsive and thorough he was to our initial inquiries. Even on weekends and late hours (eastern time) we always received timely replies, and this level of service continued well into the home buying process; far exceeding my expectations. The home we ended up buying was on the market for a single day. When we expressed interest, Earl was quick to schedule a tour and provided us a virtual tour via FaceTime. Later that evening he worked well into the night to get our offer over to the seller, ensuring we were the first. We later found out that the seller also received other offers the next morning. We attribute Earl's dedication and negotiating skills as the primary reason we were able to secure the property. We absolutely love our new home, and highly recommend Earl for anyone planning to buy in the Norfolk area!

Stephanie M.

Earl's costumer service is outstanding!! I could not imagine going through the home buying process with anyone else because he made it so smooth and easy for us! He was very knowledgeable and provided us with everything we needed and so much more! As first time home buyers we were afraid of the  whole process at first and had a million questions along the way but Earl and his team made sure we were well informed the whole way. Earl has a great attitude, tons of patience, and was well organized with everything!! I love that Earl has become one of our great friends that we can turn to anytime not just our realtor! Earl did such an outstanding job we referred him to a close friend of ours that had been trying to sell his house and had been dealing with the "everyday realtors". Earl and his team took great care of a close friend and we put our full trust in Earl...He found us the home of our DREAMS and we couldn't be more thankful!! 

Michaela S.

Joe was AMAZING! He helped us buy our first home keeping us informed with any changes super quick. He was and is still always available with any questions and has excellent people skills!

Julie W.

Went through many Realtors. By far one of the most down-to-earth individuals I've ever met. I was very confused at first but he walked me through everything and got me exactly where I needed to go. He got me into a home in one day of looking while other Realtors we're taking me on a roundabout not  finding anything. If you are going to buy a house there are is nobody better than Paul. This tells a lot because I usually don't write reviews but he was amazing and we still know we can call him whenever we need him.

Christopher C.

Being a first time buyer I was very nervous and ignorant to the whole house buying process. I was referred to Earl Sanders from a friend who had bought a home with him and he told me Earl will make it as painless as possible. Truth be told it was more painful buying my first car than my first house. Earl and his team explained every step of every process so I couldn't ask alot of questions, as they explained everything. If questions did arise they were answered quickly and fully at any time of the day. They made my overall home buying experience one of the best of my life and I wouldn't use anybody else.

Seth B.

Earl is a type of Realtor who does all the work for you. He made buying a house simple. He knew all the questions to ask and knew the area. He has a great personality too and is very friendly. He wasn't a pest either like some realtors can be. I asked him to stop looking for a while because I was busy and he did so. He listened to me too and helped in my decision making. I would recommend Earl to anyone.

Joe W.

We chose Earl & Stacy as our realtors in a very rushed, urgent sale due to corporate relocation. In what is a very stressful full family move, home sale and job relocation, Stacy and Earl truly sold our home seamlessly. They are kind, responsive, show genuine care for their clients and are incredibly knowledgeable in their field. They keep their word, follow up on all items and fulfilled our confidence in them. I look back at the last 30 Days, and think “wow it’s been busy, but not stressful!” A massive part of that is due to them. I would highly recommend you list with the Earl Sanders team, they are phenomenal. 

Lisa C.

Earl is outstanding at his job. He helped our family find a house to make a home and no matter our requests or how long it took he stuck with us so long that we officially adopted him into our family :-)

Ross S.

Earl came recommended to us when we moved to Hampton Roads. He was instrumental in helping us find our home. Earl listened to all of our wants and needs and found many prospect homes for us to see. He never pushed his opinion on us but rather offered advice on important things to consider with each home, which we valued highly. The sellers and their realtor were somewhat difficult to deal with but Earl was very persistent with them until all questions and issues were resolved. We would absolutely recommend Earl to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Jenny S.

Earl and his team are definitely a relationship based realty group. Got me everything I wanted in the house they helped us find. Friendly team members and helpful associates.

Victoria P.

If you want it done Earl Sanders can make it happen plus he is a great guy. Win win!!

Jeffrey R.

I contacted Earl prior to moving to the local area about a home I was interested in, he responded quickly and made me feel comfortable right away as I had a bad experience with a previous realtor. I am active duty and had very little time to find a place once I arrived. It was extremely important  to find the right home as I needed to get my teenager into school as quickly as possible. As my time came closer to move to the area, I had already been pre-approved and was working with both him and Stacey. Stacey was also very helpful with the paperwork process, answering questions, and being available if I needed anything. She's very polite, personable, and professional! I sent Earl several suggestions regarding the homes I wanted to look at in the Yorktown area and upon arrival he had those as well as multiple other homes ready. Earl was beyond prepared and I am extremely appreciative of his organization (he has charts and everything to explain the buying process!), it's what I know and understand! Within 72 hrs of arrival from Turkey, we had seen numerous homes and I was able to put in an offer. Earl was more than accommodating, professional, and even though it was the weekend, he helped us out through everything. Earl is more than patient and truly wants what is best for your family. He doesn't push you to make decisions and he ensures all of your questions are answered in order for you to be able to make the best decision for your family. I am proud to say we have closed on the home, we are in our requested school zone, and were able to move in just before Christmas! I wish I could give Earl more than five stars as he deserves it! I have already recommended Early to two of my friends who are moving here at the beginning of next year! Thank you Earl and Stacey, you rock!

Janee W.

Ryan helped us find our first home and we could not have had a better experience. He is very knowledgeable about the local area and listened to our wants in order to quickly find us our first home. He is very responsive and was always willing to work with our schedule in order to make the home  buying process easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend!

Anna & Michael P.

Earl was extremely helpful, and explained everything in detail to us. Us being first-time home buyers, it seemed very daunting, but he made everything seem so simple. I thank him for helping us get into this beautiful house, and I have definitely already recommended him to a few friends.

Mr. Earl Sanders and Stacey made purchasing my third home a great experience. I was not looking to buy a home in the Hampton Roads, but after looking around the area we saw the potential of owning a home in Virginia due to so many military in the area and interest rates at their lowest.We found Earl Sanders number on a house he was selling, called him directly and was impressed from the start. Earl was patient with our questions and educated us on some of the finer points of RE negotiations. We ended up purchasing a great home in the Summerlake area around shops, restaurants, close to work and most of all a very safe neighborhood. I would sincerely recommend Earl Sanders team to any fellow service members, and anyone looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, great customer service with a smile realtor. Earl Sanders and Stacey are the ones you're looking for, they will put you in the right house at the right place and time. God Bless America!

Earl and his team go above and beyond to take care of their clients. I have had the pleasure of working with Earl for two purchases and 1 sale. I have referred to several of my friends and all have enjoyed working with professional team.

I am in the military, I was renting for 4 yrs and decide I didn't wanna throw away my money anymore and pay someone else's mortgage. Well I contacted Earl. I got his number from a buddy of mine that said he was highly recommend and that he worked with him, so I called. I will tell you I have never ever in my life met someone in the career field of sales where they make money if the salesman was like Earl. He told me from the beginning that he would not even let me buy the house if he thought it was not a good deal and he did just that. I had no idea about how to go about buying a home cause it was my first time but Earl broke down the process so that even my 3 year old would have known what was going on ... it was so much easier than I thought. I was so scared to make that commitment to such a big experience but I promise it was the best choice I've ever made and I don't think if I would have contacted anyone else besides Earl, I don't think I would have done it. I promise this guy is professional, kind and he really does care he's not there to just make money. He seems like he actually enjoys what he does. I promise you aren't making a mistake with this guy good luck.


We contacted Earl by recommendation from a friend and asked him to find us a home. We were comming to VA in two weeks and only had ten days to look. When we arived at his office everyone was very nice and accommodating even tho we had 2 toddlers in toe. Earl was ready to go. Had houses lined up and we started. As we drove to house after house trying "find the one" as wife said,he was more than patient. He seemed to have droped everything he had to ensure we found the perfect house for the perfect price and showed use everything we needed to look for. As first-time buyers we had no idea what we were getting into and had very little time to do it. Its a shame that I can only give him a 5 star review because he deserves ten because of what we put him through. If you are looking for a home in Hampton roads this is the man for the job.

Randy A.

He was extraordinary helpful. We searched through many homes with him. And he helped us find the perfect one, even though we were pretty picky on what we wanted.

Jeremy R.

Ryan is great!!! Highly recommend. My wife and I were very particular on what we wanted in our new home and Ryan delivered. He never pushed us to go outside of our budget and worked day and night once we found a home to get the deal done and close ahead of schedule.

John & Crystal P.

Earl listened to what we wanted before we looked at houses. He genuinely wanted to get to know us better to find out what our needs were and what we were looking for. He was in communication with us throughout the entire process and continues to be there for us as our friend, years later.

Emma R.

This was my first home buying experience and Earl went above and beyond what I would have expected. He not only explained every step of the process but was always available to answer any questions I had along the way.

He made buying a house enjoyable and even though it took a while to find the right place for me he never wavered in his attention to helping me. He never once made me think I would have to settle for a lesser choice.

Hope to be able to have his help again in the future.

Dominic M.

We met at his office and discussed what home I was looking to buy. The set up on there website was easy. After I went through all the potential houses online, he set up the dates to go see the houses I liked and threw in some himself. He made the entire process really easy and teaches you about how  everything works so you can get an idea of what's going on if you are a first time buyer.

Andrew C.

I happened to come across Earl Sanders on Zillow when I was doing a market analysis on my home. He contacted me that day and discussed my home and selling information. He knew the area well and had actually sold another condo in our subdivision a few months earlier. We interviewed a few agents,  but ended up liking Earl the most and picked him to help us sell our home. This was our third time trying to sell our place and we were underwater. We had a time frame we had to be moved out as well. He was the first agent to price our house correctly and had an offer on our home within 2 months, right when we needed it to sell. We had over a dozen showings as well. Earl is knowledgable, easy to talk too and patient. We are moving out of the area but when we are ready to move back and ready to buy again, you can bet we will use Earl as our realtor. Thank you Earl and also to Stacey Whitesell for your hard work and professionalism! 

Jodi G.

He is a fun down to earth completely committed realtor. Genuine personality and eager to make the home buying experience as easy as is successful . I would recommend him to everyone . An honest hardworking realtor who deserves your business .

Trinity B.

Earl and Ryan are outstanding. It was my first home and they explain every step of the way and made sure I was comfortable knowing what was going on. We found the house we wanted in what seemed like no time at all. They were always on time and very quick to call me back when I needed them. I will  never use anyone else!

Tucker B.

Our home selling experience with the Earl and Stacey Team was all positive from beginning to end. We sat down with Earl in the kitchen one Saturday afternoon where he proposed the winning strategy. He provided very simple chart that illustrated each of the steps involved in selling our home. The second viewing was all it took to sell, and at asking price. They even helped negotiate the sale of several of our furnishings and appliances! Now that we are looking for a new home, we would not even consider soliciting help from any other than the Earl and Stacey Team. One or both are always immediately available to discuss options, provide guidance and show new listings.

Jason O.

This was our first home buying experience and Earl and his team helped us every step of the way. Earl made sure we knew everything that was happening and what to expect next. He even provided charts and other helpful tools. Either Earl or a member of his team was always available whenever we needed anything or wanted to see a house. We were very nervous and constantly changed our mind on what we were looking for and Earl always helped us put everything in to perspective and remained patient with us; we never felt rushed or like we were being pushed into something. We could not have asked for a better team to help us with this experience and will always feel confident in recommending Earl to anyone!

Cara D.

We knew that we were not going to be easy clients to satisfy when looking for a new property. Our search area was restricted to only about four neighborhoods. The must-have list was long and the available listings were few. But somehow Earl knew when a house was going on the market even before the sign went up. Stacey was available to show at any schedule we threw at her; and she seemed to enjoy the house-hunting process as much as we did. We explored the option of distressed properties, which was a completely foreign subject to us. Earl walked us through the details and gave us the confidence to make good decisions. In the end, of course, we found just the right house. But the full service support from Earl and his Team didn’t stop there. Earl brought in the experts, including an HVAC specialist to not only inspect, but also evaluate, make professional recommendations and provide cost estimates to resolve discrepancies. By the time we started negotiating price, there was no doubt in our minds. Earl is our Real Estate expert.

Dawn O.

Earl Sanders was a great choice for my first home purchase. He was very attentive to our needs and willing to meet with us for any reason at almost any time. He continues to show excellent customer service. Without question one of the best in Hampton Roads!!

Sean W.

Vickie Is the best! She helped us in finding and buying our new home. She was very patient and always kind to us as we looked at many houses. She was always professional, answered all the questions we had and answered all our calls/texts and emails. She is very knowledgeable about the area. I would  highly recommend her. She is simply the best

Wayne & Naomi M.

My husband and I were beginning the search for a new home, shortly after our return to the area. We were also 6 months pregnant with our second child at the time. We were referred to Earl Sanders and his team from one of my husband's co-workers. From the very beginning, Earl sat us down and went step-by-step with what we could/should expect being first time home buyers. The search was not easy. Earl always have us his honest opinion, when asked for it and never made us feel as though he was just in it for the sale. There were many weekends he and his fellow associate Stacey spent with us. Not only were they both patient and kind with us, but they were patient and kind with our 3 year old son, making certain he was just as much a part of the process as we were. When we finally found the home we purchased, we asked for one more walk through, with Earl and Stacey by our side helping us solidify if that home was truly for us. Earl and Stacey promised to have us into a new home by the time our baby was due... and they did... one week before! Earl and Stacey have gone above and beyond their call of duty in selling a home. Even to this day, whenever we have a question about the home, Earl is the first person we call.

Chelsea W.

Earl Sanders was a true professional. He was very helpful leading up to and throughout the home buying process. His helpfulness was evident as we were first time home buyers. Earl patiently researched and answered every question we asked about financing, refinancing, home equity, home owners insurance, etc. He even projected a 30-day home buying timeline (once we found a house) and delivered right on time. In all, I would say he made the experience a pleasant and educational one. We would wholeheartedly recommend Earl Sanders as Realtor for anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home :-)

Brent S.

Earl sold my house in 2013. He was both professional and pleasant to deal with. He was very open and honest with his opinions on pricing and time to sell, did not just tell me what i wanted to hear. His opinions turned out to be very accurate. On more than one occasion, someone would see the sign with his name in my yard and remark on their own good experiences with him in the past. I am comfortable recommending Earl without any reservations.


Earl helped our family find the perfect house for our large family. He made sure it was exactly what we wanted and were looking for. He was patient with us during the whole process.

Tammy C.

Joe was such a pleasure to work with! As a first time home buyer, I had a million questions, and he was able to answer anything I threw at him. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. He would reply to texts and phone calls very quickly, no matter the time of day. Every time we  toured homes, he came prepared and enthusiastic, and gave us great recommendations for homes we didn't see online. He outlined the home buying and closing process very clearly and made the whole experience a breeze. Any time my husband and I had questions for the seller or needed more information from the selling agent, he was on top of it. We barely had to do a thing! He made buying a home fun, which I know is not something a lot of people can say! We have a beautiful home now thanks to Joe. I would absolutely recommend Joe if you're looking for a professional, fun, and easy home buying experience!

Alex V.

Earl was amazing and very helpful in finding us our first home. We were in a very short window to find a home but we did it with his help. The entire team was warm, welcoming, and friendly.

Jill A.

I am active duty Navy and heard about Earl from a friend on board my ship. He was amazing with working with my busy schedule and scheduling appointments for the weekend when I had the only time off. Once I found the house I loved he was able to get everything and some that I was asking for. I plan on purchasing more homes in the future and I can not WAIT to work with Earl and his amazing team again!!!

Travis B.

I have never met a real estate agent that does the work that Paul did for me and my family!!! From the moment he responded to my inquiry up until the day we closed Paul was always a step ahead of the game and kept me WELL indormed of everything that was going on. I wasn't in the dark about  anything. He included me in every step that was required to secure this home!!! I am absolutely amazed and so thankful for his tireless efforts to bring stability and comfort to me and my family. He made sure that I was at ease and comfortable before making any decisions. Thank you Paul for being the best real estate agent EVER!!!

Jana M.

Stacey was awesome! It was my husband and mine first time buying a home and as nervous as we were about the home buying process, Stacey made it more enjoyable. We had some crazy sellers and Stacey knew exactly how to deal with their agent and negotiate unreasonable requests from them. We have the  home of our dreams and feel so lucky to have had Stacey's help!

Barbara Y.

Earl was a fantastic real estate agent and I would recommend him to anyone. As a first time home buyer, we knew nothing about buying a house. Earl answered all of our questions very promptly and made sure we knew what was going on at all times. As far as the search process, Earl was  knowledgeable about listings but never tried to push a home on us. As far as the negotiations went, Earl struck me as a fantastic negotiator. He got us a price we were happy with and convinced the seller to make all of our requested repairs (even ones that were very nit picky). Finally, Earl was a consummate professional. He took our calls at all hours, scheduled listings on a very short notice, and was incredibly prompt in everything he did.

Sean J.

I am new to the Virginia Beach area and did not have any intentions of purchasing when I did. Alex A., was very knowledgeable and personable. I wanted to get to see what my options were and what I could afford. After looking at houses for about two weeks, I purchased my first home and the  experience was great. I was walked through the process and "The Earl Sanders Team" made sure I was welcomed home the right way. I highly recommend them to my family and friends.

Stacey G.

Earl is the best, he listened to what we wanted and worked with us to find the perfect house in our price range. He was always available when we had questions or concerns and still stays in contact with us today. I always recommend him to my friends and co-workers!

Bailey M.

Working with Paul has been outstanding. He is such a great person and his primary goal was making sure the family is happy. He is highly knowledgeable and made buying a home not only simple, but fun. I would recommend Paul to anyone from all aspects.

Uriel G.

Friendly outgoing very personal and professional at all times. I have always had fast and accurate meeting times/places. House showings and closing went very easy. Add s first time home buyer he made they're process easy to follow and understand. He was worth me every step.

Dawn S.

In February 2012, both my wife and I became home owners for the first time. Mr. Sanders was our realtor then, and now for the second time, he is our realtor. He has made both of our experience very memorable. He was always there to answer any questions that we may have had in regards to both buying a new home and now having a new home built. He diffinitely has your best interest at heart. Even if you don't know quite the right questions to ask, he will ask them for you. Mr. Sanders has also helped my bother and sister in law to purchase their new home. He is the truth. If you want someone who has your best interest at heart and knows this business inside and out, call Mr. Sanders.

Jarrell R.

The Earl Sanders Team was amazing. We were first time home buyers and Earl went step by step through the home buying process in a way that was very easy to understand! He was also very knowledgeable about the area and would give advice on houses based on what our future plans were. I have  recommended Earl to several friends and all have been happy with him and have recommended him to others. We also found Earl from a recommendation! If you decide to do business with Earl you will not be disappointed!

Anna R.

Mr. Cordero was very knowledgeable of the area and met all of our family needs. His experience was crucial in finding the perfect home in a great location. I have not only recommended him to others, but I will work with him again in the future.

Barlaham C.

My husband and I received Earl's information from a few people, whom had nothing but great things to say about him. The first time we met with Earl he had every bit of information possible we needed to know the ins and outs of buying a house. We explained what we were looking for in a home and he went to work right away. He answered our questions in a timely manner. He was always in a very positive mood and very patient through the entire process. We are very grateful for all of Earl's hard work and giving us the best experience with buying our first home. I highly recommend Earl to anyone looking for a home in the Hampton roads area!

Samantha R.

We were very lucky in that we only looked at a few houses before we made our offer on our current home. Even so, I know without a doubt Earl would have been as patient as needed, if needed to make sure we found a home that was right for us. He made the whole home buying experience very unintimidating for us. He would do the same for you. Always friendly, hard working and knowledgable as well. As long as we are in the area, Earl will be our "go to" realtor for not only ourselves but friends and co-workers.

Jennifer C.

We had only 3 days to find a home, which is not easy. Earl, took us to 72 houses in the short time we had. We found our perfect home with his help. If anyone talks about buying I always suggest Earl Sanders. I feel we found the best Realtor. By day 3 we were exhausted and he was so helpful in making the decision. Once we decided on a home Earl made the rest of the process easy for us and everything ready for us when we actually moved here a couple months later.

Misty F.

Couldn't have asked for a better Realtor®! Will help you throughout the process as much or little as you need. His knowledge is truly incredible and he works to get you everything you want and more.

Chris C.

There is sincerity in everything he does. He truly loves to help people find the home that will make them the happiest and it shows in every encounter. His staff are equally as happy and good-natured. You don't even feel like you're calling about the stressful business of buying or selling a home,  you feel like you're calling a friend. And the relationship maintains.

Michelle P.

I was referred to Mr. Sanders in my search to rent, as I didn't think i was ready to buy. Earl was straight forward with me and it didn't hurt to look. So that's what I did. We met with Ryan Schoch who took me to see over 30 homes before deciding on the one. Ryan and Earl answered all my  questions without hesitation, and led me through the buying process without pressure or sales tactics. Mr. Sanders was an incredible asset during negotiations and worked hard to strike a deal that was beneficial to both parties. He did his research on the neighborhood, and actually got me $6K in equity!!! I can't thank Mr. Sanders and his team enough for their hard work and dedication to making my once distant dream of home ownership reality! 

Carrie M.

Awesome realtor! He was helpful every step of the way and got me tons of listings that matched exactly what I was looking for. He walked me through the buying process and I am extremely pleased with his level of service.

Michael S.

Earl and his team helped us purchase our first home. Earl and Stacey always made themselves available for us working around our schedule to show us homes. They continue to support us, even after the sale. We look forward to working with the team again on our next purchase.

Shawn S.

We were property virgins and Earl pretty much learned us the ins and outs of buying a home. The rules, the dos and do nots. Overall he gave us piece of mind and made our home buying experience as first timers a pleasant one. Thank you so much Earl.

Steve D.

We sold our old house and bought our new house with Earl as our realtor for both in 2010. Anything we needed he bent over backwards for us. He was never pushy with our sale or house hunting. And best of all our house was on the market for less than a month in early 2010!!!! If you are looking for a realtor who listens to your needs and really cares about you, pick Earl as your realtor.

John R.

Earl helped me and my husband purchase our first home in 2012. We had no idea about buying property when we met him. He set up a meeting with us in his office and taught us the ins and outs of buying property. It made us feel a lot more condensed in the whole process. We ended up having him as our Realtor and bought an awesome home. He also has a solid network in the Hampton Roads area and able ti refer you to people he trusts to help you with your home. I'd recommend Earl to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Heather M.

Earl was a great pleasure to work with!! Earl and his team were very knowledgeable and helpful with every question I had. He showed me several homes and his input were very helpful in my decision to by the home I did.
