We had a unique property to sell, and we searched for a realtor that had expertise in historic properties and land conservation easements. We met with David and April, and found that their knowledge and approach were well suited to our needs. Their marketing strategy focused on this narrow niche of the real estate market. Their approach was trusting, meticulous, friendly, enthusiastic and conscientious. They set out a marketing plan, and explained the contract and process well. We never felt hurried. They became very familiar with the home and property, learning details of the historic structure, and walking the many acres to understand the engaging features of the land. They were very easy to work and communicate with. They provided wonderful ideas and beautiful photography. Their guidance through the complex closing process was beyond reproach.

David Hurt and his partner April Garrison did an outstanding job marketing and selling our large farm in Bedford County, Virginia. They were the consummate professionals; they knew the market, understood agriculture, farming, conservation easements and high acreage properties. As a realtor myself, I especially valued their broad reach internet marketing efforts, the quality of their materials (written and photographic), their attention to detail and knowledge of the local area. They are sophisticated, globally minded and reactive to the demands of the current market place - their recommendation to offer our property as a whole, and also as two separate parcels - resulted in a full price offer for each parcel within a week. They managed all aspects of the marketing and sale from start to finish. They did an excellent job.

Both David and April when over and beyond in their efforts to sell our home in Roanoke. We relocated to Oregon and they both took on this project with an eager outcome. Our home experience severe water damage and David and April interviewed the contractors, and worked with the contractor each and every step to ensure the best possible outcome. After the long wait of repairs our home got sold within 12 days of returning to the market. David and April, we are so grateful that we got to work with you on this massive project. Best service I have ever experienced.

  • Francisca Arthur, Roanoke

We had a very unique and difficult home to sell. It had been on the market for 10 years when we bought it. The day we decided to sell it, I was terrified we would be holding on to an extra mortgage for a decade or so.

We interviewed 8 agents. When we first met with David and April, it was obvious they were very talented individuals. What particularly caught our interest was their wide array of marketing tactics that ensured the maximum amount of buyers saw our home. We also appreciated their ability to see the value in our unique property. Most of the agents wanted to list our home for at least 30% less than what we ended up listing and selling it for.


Within a couple weeks of having our home listed with David and April, we had a ratified contract. I strongly believe the two key elements that sold our home were their broad marketing ability and the storybook description of the home that they so masterfully put together. I have never given too much credit to home descriptions, but when I read what they had put together, it made me want to buy our home all over again.

  • Carol Bacon, Salem

David and April were wonderful to work with on my real estate purchase. They were extremely responsive and knew what I was looking for in a property. I will be using David and April for all of my real estate transactions in the future. Great team! You can feel confident that they are working hard for you and your family.

  • Jim Knowles, Huddleston

"I want to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you for finding a purchaser for Moss Rock, and, importantly, all of the behind the scenes work you did to make it a reality. My only regret is that we did not find you earlier, much earlier. You were the type of agent that I had in mind from the beginning, but, as they say, better late than never. All in all, you did an outstanding job, and I’m deeply appreciative."

  • Rudy Hauser, Spencer

"I want to express my sincere gratitude to David and April for their successful strategy in the sale of our home. After eight years and over a half dozen realtors, they were the one to bring us a buyer. They put in place a marketing strategy that cast a wide net and included superb presentation of our home and land with aerial and other professional photography. April has such good taste and a wonderful eye for decorating with simplicity- it really brought out the best in our property. David kept aggressively marketing our property in different venues and promptly provided feedback that allowed us to fine tune our home for showings that eventually led to a buyer. It took a lot of hard work but they said what they were going to do and did it. After they found the buyer, their negotiating skills truly stood out and they monitored all tasks and inspections that had to be completed, which ultimately lead to having everything finished properly for closing in a timely manner when Covid-19 was delaying most real estate transactions. Thanks for going the extra mile!"

  • Larry and Anna, Gidsville

"I don't think we would have been able to sell our land nearly as easily without David and April's professional assistance. David and April went far beyond what we expected from a Realtor. I believe that anyone looking to sell a property like ours is missing out if they don't work with these two. We intend to tell anyone we know about their services and approach to marketing land and farms."

  • Jeff Bibb, Monroe

"From the moment I asked David to help me sell my land, he went to work. David’s first actions were to meet with me to gain a clear understanding of the issues and problems associated with this particular parcel of land, and to understand my goals in selling the property. David was extraordinarily helpful in finding a solution to an issue with some neighboring landowners while maintaining a cordial working relationship with everyone. This was a huge help to me as an absentee landowner. David takes advantage of every opportunity to get work done, and he doesn’t rest until each process is completed to the customer’s full satisfaction."

  •   Ann Rogers, Boones Mill 

"David and April were outstanding and did a terrific job marketing and selling our home. Our house was under contract in one week with over 20 showings, let alone the week of Thanksgiving. I highly recommend David and April."

  • Amber Stanley, Boones Mill

"I had the pleasure of working with David for the purchase of my retirement property. David was a wealth of information and on several occasions provided me with contact information of experts and professionals whose advice I needed to assess whether the property was right for me. David was exceptionally responsive, took the time to show us the property (hiking 63 acres of mountain land was not a trivial thing) and was very effective and courteous in follow-ups and to gauge interest as a potential buyer. Of all the real estate transactions I had to make during my adult life, this was by far the best and most comfortable and David set a new standard for professionalism, local knowledge, responsiveness and competence. Working with him was a true pleasure."

  • Christine Sizemore, Hardy

"David was kind, knowledgeable, and  very professional throughout the entire process. April did a very nice job of staging the house and setting up viewings, and they kept us well informed as they generated interest in the property. I would definitely recommend them to any friend or family member looking to sell a home."

  • Chris Burton, Floyd

“David came to our deal with a substantial depth of knowledge involving the marketing and sale of historic VA properties and rural/equestrian estates. He made our deal happen with quality communication, timely responses to inquiries, and a friendly demeanor. Glad to have hired David!

  • Drew Flynn, Bedford


“Working with David was an excellent experience. Our property was in conservation, located a mile off the main road and an unusual layout. David did a great job of coaching us on not only staging the house but also the property. He helped build a bridge to a rustic cabin and cleared trails. He did a good job of screening prospects and giving us adequate notice for showings.  His knowledge of the details of land conservation was critical in selling our property. "

  •  Richard Surles, Montvale


“With land that had a conservation easement, it was extremely important for us to have an agent well versed in the unique issues of such a property. Most other agents/brokers were reluctant to even evaluate the property, and no one could understand the specifics of the conservation easement. David went the extra mile (research and reading) to understand our unusual easement terms and decide how the property should be advertised and priced. Very professional, made sure all was good with us throughout the process.”

  • Thom Leedhom, Callaway


“I am an attorney who has practiced real estate law for 41Yrs. and am not easily impressed. David Hurt is a real professional I would recommend without reservation! He sold both a residence and acreage for our LLC and Trust within 30 days and 90 days! Contact me at if you would like further information. David is a great man to work with!”

  • Barry Bruce, Roanoke

"David found me the property I wanted but hadn't believed was out there. He knows Southwest Virginia better than anyone else, and he's smart and thoughtful and diligent. Over the weeks he worked with me, he listened and communicated clearly and honestly and often, and worked tirelessly until I was settled into my new home. His unusual depth of knowledge, good humor, integrity, and professionalism combine to make him a really extraordinary Realtor."

  • Virginia Stewart, Roanoke

"We tried to sell our home with 2 other realtors before David with no success. David presented us with a comprehensive marketing plan even before we gave him the listing. He followed through with it and we had a contract in 3 weeks of the listing hitting the MLS. Although that contract fell through, he never stopped keeping in touch and driving traffic to our home. David went back to the marketing plan and consistently barraged other realtors with our listing to keep it top of mind and get a sale long after it ceased to be a "new listing." He did a great job on service and professionalism."

  • Ruth and Mark Bailey, Blue Ridge

“David Hurt represented us well in the sale of our small farm. His knowledge of farm property and real estate sales experience proved to be valuable to us from listing through closing. Our property was unique, and there was not a comparable property on the market. David assisted us in determining a selling price and stuck with us through the offer, counter-offer process. He is professional, kind, sharp, and knows his profession. We highly recommend, and would undoubtedly ask David to represent us in any future real estate dealings regardless of property type.”

  • Gino Cocconcelli, Floyd


“David Hurt helped us sell our house, getting a full price offer in record time. While the results speak for themselves, it was the everyday attention to detail, knowledge of the local real estate market, friendly and honest approach, robust marketing, and expertise in effectively pricing the house that were so amazing. David Hurt is an excellent realtor and an excellent person. We will utilize his services anytime in the future that we need a realtor. We suggest others do the same!”

  • David and Dawn Trible, Bent Mountain


“After having no success for years with a different realtor, David Hurt sold our tract of land within one month! He lived up to his advertisements, going beyond our expectations. David is a very kind and courteous man, he handled all aspects of the sale professionally and efficiently.”

  • Mullins family, Callaway


“Highly recommend David! He never gave up finding me the perfect property. He was very diligent to make sure inspections were done, road agreements were in place before offer was made. As a result, it saved me some bad decisions. He works in a collaborative effort with other professionals, including banks, inspections and county regulations. If you are buying or selling land/home I highly recommend David. Will call on his services again.”

  • Teri Reed, Callaway


“When David contacted me to list my historic old log cabin, he told me he could reach the market I was looking for. I had previously had it listed with another agent who did no more that just put it on MLS. After having no response there, David had several showings within two weeks and had a contract in four weeks. His listing and photographs were very professional, signage fliers were above and beyond. I would definitely use his services again.”
