Brooke Thompson


brooke-thompson-bioHi! It’s nice to meet you. Thanks so much for taking a minute to learn more about me and how I happened upon real estate.

My name is Brooke Thompson and I have lived in Charlottesville since 2004. When looking to purchase a home for my growing family, I was obsessed with researching, reviewing and scouting houses in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. For the better part of eighteen months I would eat, live and breathe,, the real estate search engine for this area.

Honestly, I would check/stalk the website multiple times a day. My husband lovingly referred to me as the “Real Estate Wikipedia” as I knew everything about every house on the market. My determination and tenacity resulted in what I consider the perfect home for Team Thompson.

After that, it made perfect sense to couple my newfound love for all things real-estate and my 15 years in sales and marketing and parlay that into a real estate license. Armed with determination, enthusiasm, an unsurpassed commitment to excellence, and dedication to service, I believe it is my privilege to work beside you in finding your dream home.

A Few of My Favorite Things

  • My Favorite Movie
    I am an avid lover of cinema and to pick just one, it’d have to be Steel Magnolias (don’t make me quote the entire movie, I can, if challenged).
  • My Favorite Holiday
    Hands down, Thanksgiving. I love the cool, crisp weather, changing leaves, and family gathering together to cook, watch the parade, laugh, remember old times, eat way too much and say our “thankfuls.” Last, but definitely not least, my Grandma Odetta’s, pumpkin crisp. Yum!
  • My Favorite Place to Travel
    Chicago is one of my absolute favorite cities. Steeped in history, architecture, culture, and delicious food, I could go there a dozen more times and always be inspired after I leave.

Darian was there every step of the way to help us along! Even after we found the right home, Darian helped us through the actual purchase, mortgage application, home inspection, and closing. He always had extremely useful advice, encouragement, and endless knowledge about buying and owning a home.

Melissa is an outstanding real estate agent and a joy to work with. She took the time to understand our needs in a new home, worked tirelessly running down leads, and has stayed upbeat and positive during a difficult search. We not only consider her as our real estate agent, but a friend. Our experience has been so positive that we absolutely plan on working with Melissa in the future.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Amy. Not only is she knowledgeable and responsive, but she is patient and takes the time to explain the process of selling a home and makes you feel comfortable with what can be a very complicated process. Amy truly made the process easy for us and sold our property in a week.
