"We have been so pleased with renting through Lake Retreat.  Your agency has always looked out for us and our property.  If anyone asks us, we always speak highly of your agency.  You have rented it many weeks for us each summer and even into the fall this year for which we are so appreciative.  We have just come to a place where we would like to enjoy it more with our own family.  Thank you for all you have done in the past and we look forward to this next year of renting with you as our rental agency.  Your company is the best!"

We had been renting the same home for many years and finally decided that Smith Mountain Lake was where we would retire to. We contacted Wil Childress regarding one of his listings in 2013 and although we were only starting our "forever home" search, we knew right away that Wil was the one to help us going forward. His knowledge, patience, and honesty made us feel so comfortable and he told us immediately that our quest may take years but that he would be with us every step of the way - and he was. We closed on our dream home in June of this year and we are thrilled! Wil found us the home, put us in touch with a phenomenal mortgage broker, personally attended to every detail needed to get to the table and was ALWAYS there for us. It gets even better! The rental team at Lake Retreat - Wil's Mom Jeanette and Kim - immediately got our home on the rental market and we're on our way to a much earlier than expected permanent move to the lake. Lake Retreat Properties is a family business that understands traditional values and genuinely cares about the people they interact with whether they be buyers, rental property owners, or renters. We feel truly blessed that our journey put us in their care and we've made great new friends along the way. Living the dream thanks to Lake Retreat....and it really is fantastic! Mark and Mary (and the kids, grand kids, family and friends).
