"Working with Olyvia was an absolute pleasure! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. We could not recommend her enough! She always had our best interest in mind and was available at any time to answer questions. Our transaction was complex and she went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly." 
- Brittany & Andrew, Williamsburg, 2020




"My wife and my time have been hectic in moving into a new home in northern Virginia and starting a new job for me. Since receiving a firm offer, we had to place our home of 17 years on the market to sell quickly because I had a probable reporting date roughly 40 days after accepting the offer. We interviewed four realtors and by far, Olyvia came out as the most trusting among the four. We had to sell the home quickly and then buy a new home at the same time. Olyvia and her mother, and agent and designer herself, helped us quickly sell the house at top dollar. Our house was on the market for only three days (Thursday-Saturday) officially and we accepted the first offer that came in, and the accepted offer was submitted the second day. That weekend, my wife and I were up in northern Virginia, buying our new home. Don't allow her number of years of experience to fool you. She is knowledgeable and tenacious. We wholly recommend her to anyone needing to sell their home." 
- Alan & Myong, Yorktown, 2020


"Olyvia Salyer represented us as our Realtor, in the sale of our home at 164 Highland. Olyvia's knowledge of the market and work ethic sold our home quickly and for a record high price. She was tireless in representing our home in the media and within her network of real estate professionals. We have used Olyvia to buy and sell several properties and every experience has been fantastic. We plan to use her to buy and sell many properties in the future."
- Kathryn & Ron, Williamsburg, 2020

“Doesn't miss a beat! Knowledgeable so that she can easily, comfortably and confidently guide a client through all scenarios in the selling or buying process. Cheerful and professional throughout the process too." 
- Ann & Mark, Williamsburg, 2020


"It was a pleasure to work with Olyvia on the sale of our home in Ford's Colony as well as the purchase of another home in Williamsburg. She is very knowledgeable of the local area and maneuvers the ins and outs of both selling and buying very well. She got us listed very quickly and was still very thorough in her presentation of our home for sale. She was aggressive in all the right ways in negotiations over offers. She was very responsive and attentive to our questions, concerns and wishes in regards to both the sale and the purchase. She never put us under any undue pressure, but always advised and steared us in the right direction when decisions needed to be finalized. Overall, she was what made the intimidating experience of selling our home and buying another easier to bear. She walked right beside us the entire way. I highly recommend her as a realtor to anyone who is in the market, to buy or to sell." 
- Doug, Williamsburg, 2020

"If you want a realtor that will listen to you, guide you, and get results that are the best for you, Olyvia is your realtor. She’s knowledgeable in her field and fierce in her negotiating. She’s both flexible and firm, which are qualities needed in a demanding market! Highly recommend."

"We were atypical buyers and Olyvia took everything at our pace. She was patient when we needed to think and had questions, and quick-moving and responsive when we were ready to make things happen. She offered a wealth of information and was helpful in our transition back into the buyer's market (in addition to a perfect home for us in the first 5 we saw). I have no doubt she would be an asset to a very wide variety of buyers. Thank you, Olyvia!"
- Rachel & Brian, Toano, 2020 


“It was a pleasure working with Olyvia. She sold our home in 3 weeks. She is very knowable in what she does. She was always quick to respond to any questions that we had and made the sale of our home very smooth.”
- Tracy & Don, Toano, 2020

"I used Olyvia to sell my house in Skipwith Farms. I was impressed the moment we met. Olyvia was knowledgeable of the market and had the contacts to provide a pre inspection of my property on short notice. Olyvia priced the house competitively and we were able to obtain above asking price. She has excellent negotiating skills. We will use her again when we sell my mothers house."
- Lisa, Williamsburg, 2020



"Olyvia is such a dependable and knowledgeable realtor. As soon as we began working with her she was always just a text or a call away to help with anything or answer any questions that we had. She got our home photographed, listed and an open house scheduled within days of meeting with her to get things started. This resulted in immediate offers and speedy negotiations. We knew that she had our best interest in mind each step of the way and that we could trust her to give wise guidance and to help us maneuver the ins and outs of selling our home in Ford's Colony and buying another home in Williamsburg. She was an invaluable resource for us in so many ways. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to buy or sell a home in the Williamsburg area."
- Terrah, Williamsburg, 2020


"Olyvia is the consummate real estate professional and, on top of it all, just a nice person! She listens closely and works with you, not just to help find or sell a house but to get what you want in such a major transaction. We shared our search parameters' list with Olyvia, with a clear budget, location and amenities. Olyvia quickly showed us the homes we wanted to see along the way as we kept looking for the right home but also kept us informed with regular emails and texts about newly available properties. In early July we found our dream house. It had just gone on the market that same morning. Olyvia got us in to see it as the first potential buyers. By evening it was ours. Then, she helped us arrange critical inspections, making sure all the t's were crossed, and got us to close within 5 weeks - all during COVID.  You will love working with Olyvia! Even after the close she stays in touch. We consider her a friend not just our agent!" 
- Marc & Anita, Williamsburg, 2020

"We had a great experience buying our first home with Olyvia from out of state. We had a tall ask - we needed to come to town and find a house in one day in Richmond. We saw nine homes in one day and still couldn't find the perfect fit. Olyvia contacted a builder who had recently completed a property we loved to see if there was anything not on the market yet we could see and got us in to see an unlisted property SAME DAY. We made an offer the next morning and she was able to negotiate closing cost discounts because the property had not had to be listed. Olyvia was incredibly thorough and brings a network of the right connections to ensure the process ran smoothly. We will continue to work with Olyvia for years to come!" 
- Alex & Herbert, Richmond, 2020


"My wife and I had to find a house pretty quickly in March-April 2020, i.e., when this whole pandemic thing was starting to get serious. Olyvia was a great help in helping us find exactly what we wanted and getting us through the process in a way that met our needs and protected our interests. When we'd finally found a house online that we liked, Olyvia even went herself to take us on a virtual remote tour so that we could get an offer in right away. We're now happily ensconced and grateful for all the help. Olyvia was just great! Highly recommend!"

"My husband and I first met Olyvia when we moved to Williamsburg from Florida in early 2019. She graciously assisted us with finding a fantastic rental home in Toano, and we were so pleased with her customer service that we sought her out to represent us as our agent to purchase our home in May 2020. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and knowledge of the local real estate market makes her wise beyond her years in this business. Our loan servicer, the title company, and the sellers commented on how smoothly our home-buying process went. We will definitely refer others to Olyvia for their home-buying or selling needs and we will call her again when and if we decide to sell our home."

"I bought a house from Olyvia about 2 months ago; and despite the pandemic going on, Olyvia would drop anything she was doing at any time to help us with my home buying experience. She was knowledgeable and despite me looking at so many houses and being indecisive, she was patient and took care of all the paperwork for us." 
- Austin, Williamsburg, 2020

She was positive and encouraging despite the many roadblocks to the signing table. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!!!!! Thanks Olyvia!!!!!"
- Chawndel, Hampton, 2020


"My husband and I met Olyvia a year before we considered buying and she had given us some recommendations based on what we said we wanted and for the following year we searched around, her recommendations were spot on. So, when we decided to buy Olyvia was the agent we wanted to work with, it was obvious she listened to what we wanted. It took about 4 months to find a house that would work for us, it was during the COVID-19 pandemic and I could not ask for a better agent. Limited houses that met our criteria were coming on the market and we were able to get an awesome deal following Olyvia's advice."

"Olyvia is the best! Her patience, determination, and skill was the perfect calm to the crazy storm of first-time home buying! Even with the craziness in the world right now, she managed to help us purchase our dream home a few days early! She was always available for any questions we had and she has so much knowledge about the real estate world. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!" - Melissa & Jeff, New Kent, 2020


 






"Olyvia was supremely attentive and cunning during the process of both selling our house and purchasing the new one! She is honest and has a great work ethic! Thank you!"

"Olyvia is an absolute rockstar! She was so patient with us while we figured out exactly what type of home we wanted. I never felt like an agent truly cared about our interests the way she did."
- David & Lisa, Williamsburg, 2020



"Ms.Salyer did an amazing job. Kind, courteous and extremely professional, she showed a genuine interest in finding the right home for my family. Her knowledge of the market was unsurpassed compared to any agent I have worked with. She made the time to explain every step of the process and no  matter what challenge occurred had solutions not excuses. Either buying or selling a home I would highly recommend Olyvia  Salyer for the task." 
- George, Yorktown, 2019







"Olyvia went above and beyond to help us find a home! We were still living overseas in Germany when it all began. My husband had to fly into VA twice, for his job, and only had a couple of available days to see homes. She made sure that she was available and found us the perfect one! After that, she  stayed in constant contact with us and kept us in the loop of everything happening. I’m sure it wasn’t easy for her - dealing with clients on a different continent, and entirely different time zone. But she made it work, we felt 100% trustworthy, in all the info she gave us! We felt at ease and SO well taken care of in choosing her as our realtor! Olyvia was a blessing to us, and we will recommend her to anyone we know who’s wanted to buy or sell! We will definitely use her again, when it’s time to sell our home or rent it out! She is outstanding at her job! We are so grateful for her!"
Amber & JC, Toano, 2019







"We could not have asked for a better realtor! Olyvia's experience, knowledge of the area, and communication skills enabled us to buy the perfect house, all for the price we wanted. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. If you want to be represented fairly and feel you are heard, go with Olyvia!"

"We were first time home buyers and needed to find and close on a home within a month. Olyvia was extremely patient and responsive!

If you want a home buying process that is stress free go with Olyvia!" - Ariel, Williamsburg, 2019

"Olyvia is an awesome realtor! She worked with me through some major life changes and was always able to work around my funky single mom schedule to check out houses.
