Teresa Grant relocated to Virginia from her native state of Florida in 2003. While looking for a small furniture storefront, she discovered her enthusiasm and love of real estate. She obtained her license in 2004 and quickly grew into a household name as one of the top realtors in the area. In 2007 she started her first firm, The Realty Group. Fast forward to 2012, she co-launched the area’s first Keller Williams Franchise in Lynchburg Virginia, where she was the Operating Principal for 10 years overseeing 125+ realtors. Teresa sold her franchise in 2021 to focus on her true passion of helping homeowners navigate through the process of buying and selling their homes, whether their first home or a transition into the next phase of their life! Teresa resides at Smith Mountain Lake and has three full-service real estate teams serving Greater Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Smith Mountain Lake!
Her years of experience have helped Teresa generate a strong network of clients, which is why approximately 40% of her business consists of repeat and referrals. It’s also Teresa’s considerate and attentive approach that turns her clients into long-term friends. “When you’re in real estate, you have to lead with your heart. And if you care about your clients as you would for your own family and friends, they’re going to come back to you. If someone purchases or sells a home with me and needs my help, a vendor recommendation, or just someone to listen to, I’m always there for them. Teresa believes in keeping client relationships long after closing!
Teresa uses a mixed marketing strategy made up of her 18,000+ database of past clients and website visitors, targeted Facebook ads, social media posts, and occasional print advertising to give her listings the best possible exposure. And she chooses to work tirelessly in order to provide her clients with the best service. “I truly love what I do. For me, it’s my passion, not my job!
Teresa’s accomplishments in real estate have led her to receive multiple awards for her outstanding service. In 2020, Keller Williams was named Top Ranked Brokerage, meaning Keller Williams ranked in the top 1/2 of 1% of all brokerage firms in America. She is named the number one Keller Williams Luxury Realtor in her area and she is distinguished as a Keller Williams Top 100 Region Producer. While these accomplishments are great, the best thing about Teresa according to her employees and fellow realtors is her humility and kindness. She is impossible not to love and truly connects with each individual as she is approachable and is never one to brag about all she has done. She relates in some way to all of the clients she serves because she never considers herself above them.
Outside of her passion for work, Teresa is also dedicated to her community. She gives a percentage of her income to local organizations including KW Cares, Rush Homes, and KID-FIT, an organization that offers sports and tutoring for local children. Because of this dedication, sellers, and buyers who work with Teresa and her team not only benefit themselves through buying or selling but also help their community continue to thrive!
When Teresa isn’t working or spending time in the community, she loves being on the water or relaxing with a good book while surrounded by nature. She has a beautiful family that she cherishes and blesses through her business. While her career keeps her very busy, Teresa’s family always comes first, paralleling Keller Williams’ motto of “God, Family, Business.” Her family consists of her spouse, two sons, a daughter, and her beloved grandson, Isaiah. They are her inspiration and motivation to keep pursuing her dream and providing for them. She encourages her team to follow this motto as well.
Her goal for her future is to guide and train upcoming realtors and help them and their families achieve a life worth living! Her sound advice for young agents is: “Always put your client’s needs first and lead with your heart!”
One of Teresa’s past administrators who recently graduated from Law School summed it up: “Teresa is one of the most generous people I know. She takes care of her clients and employees in multiple ways that go above and beyond. She’s truly not about the money, but about people. I will always remember the example she has set in how to use the gift of wealth to bless others, including myself.” Teresa truly is a top agent and would love to meet you and take you on the real estate adventure.
