Company Profile


As one of the top real estate agencies in Hampton Roads, we understand the importance of a new beginning. It’s one reason we’re so pleased to announce a fresh start of our own—a new name and logo, plus a tagline that speaks to our reputation as a proud local leader. Yet despite these changes, we’re still the same family-owned business that began more than 40 years ago. And as we move forward, we’re ready to provide our professional expertise and friendly service to a new generation of happy clients.

Chandler Realty Company History

In 1969 newly licensed real estate agent Nancy Chandler (B.A.-William and Mary, former math teacher, wife, mother of four, volunteer in community/civic/cultural/church affairs) discovered that she loved the real estate profession. She quickly became an award-winning agent.  To her clients she gave empathy and understanding as well as her integrity and professional expertise.

However, it was her dream to open a small “group practice” with just a few agents who subscribed to her philosophy, personally trained by Nancy in the inimitable “Nancy Chandler Style”—sophisticated agents with a solid core of knowledge and the informational know-how to craft a marketing plan with a really great strategy.In 1974, Nancy Chandler opened as a small family-owned Real Estate firm with a one-of-a-kind philosophy based on honesty, professional expertise and superb client care.  In their first year the Associates sold $1.5 million worth of property.  With a vision for the future they focused on their motto, “We Get People & Places Together®”This philosophy continues under the superb leadership of Web Chandler, III, President and Chief Executive Officer, who challenges and inspired the Associates to a 2009 sales volume ranking among the largest in Southeastern Virginia and listed nationally in the RIS top 500 power brokers.  A Property Management, a Relocation Division and New Construction Division were expanded under the direction of Lisa F. Chandler, Executive Vice-President. Capt. John M. Chandler, USN R joined the firm as Chief Operating Officer.Today, Chandler Realty is represented by award-winning, caring and dedicated brokers and agents who treasure our reputation for fair and timely negotiations and outstanding marketing expertise.  We have grown into the successful business we are today through positive representation and a strong commitment to our profession and our region.
