After getting her start in real estate in the 1980s, Byrd Abbott has completed more than $248 million in sales during the past two decades, winning a myriad of accolades and awards along the way.

A Charlottesville local, born and raised, Abbott has also relocated a number of times with her family — so she knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the buying and selling process. The details involved in becoming a part of a new community, such as finding schools, churches, new friends and local businesses, are critical. “It is essential to listen deeply to what people are saying about their lives, challenges, and their aspirations,” she says. “Every situation can be brought to a satisfying conclusion, but it takes empathy, flexibility and persistence.”

In addition to her business sense, Abbott also has a creative side, and she enjoys helping friends and clients with design tips for additions, remodeling projects and decorating, as well as creating the occasional flower arrangement for them. byrdabbottsellscville.com
