Rafa joined the TYG team in 2022 after a successful Mortgage Banking career spanning over 20 years. The Richmond Area has been home to Rafa and his wife, Wendy, since they met while attending Randolph-Macon College in Ashland. Rafa’s experience in the mortgage business has exposed him to different sales and purchasing scenarios. He leverages this experience to avoid possible pitfalls in the Real Estate process. He understands the value of client experience and prides himself in going above and beyond. When Rafa is not busy working with clients, he enjoys supporting his sons’ high school activities including athletics as well as playing tennis and golf.
Rafa is a rarity; he’s a true professional who puts his clients first. Buying a house in these times is really difficult, and I’m glad I had Rafa helping me. He’s knowledgeable about the whole home buying process, and is willing to brainstorm with you to help you get what you want. I was not new to homebuying, but I was very new to this type of seller’s market, and I am grateful I had such a supportive Realtor helping me out. Oh, and he knows someone for almost any home repair. He even helped after offer acceptance to connect me to a contractor. I highly recommend working with Rafa!
I stumbled upon Rafa through Zillow. He was not the agent I was intending on using since I had been referred to “one of the best” in the Richmond area. But, Rafa was the agent who showed up for a last minute viewing at 9:00pm. And, boy I am glad he did. From the start, Rafa was professional, attentive, and friendly. He wasn’t pushy or insincere. I was impressed with his ability to point out major concerns with the home, and his local knowledge of the market and personal insights into the area were extremely helpful. Overall, Rafa made a lasting impression that could not be matched, even by Richmond’s “best”. If you’re looking for an agent who will go to great lengths to advocate on your behalf he is your agent! Rafa always made me a priority and when it was time to negotiate, he was flawless. My daughter and I were fortunate to have him working around the clock to find us a good home in city we knew little about. He is directly responsible for making our dream of finding a nice, safe, and beautiful home a reality. We not only gained a capable agent, but a genuine friend. In our opinion, he is “the best” Richmond has to offer.
Don’t hesitate to use The Yeatman Group for your next home purchase or resale. We recently purchased in Hallsley and worked with them to purchase our dream home. They were extremely professional, accommodating to our busy schedules, and a pleasure to deal with. The Mason family highly recommends this wonderful group!!!
