Welcome to

the Lake!

I first visited Smith Mountain Lake when my family moved to the area in 1996. Originally from the desert southwest, this place made an enormous impact on me. I longed to live at the lake for years before life finally presented the opportunity to realize this dream. I’m now excited to be able to live in a place I am passionate about and assist buyers and sellers along their path of realizing their real estate goals. ...Read More

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Xan when purchasing a vacation condo on the Lake. Of all the realtors we have worked with in past home purchases, we had the best experience in our relationship with Xan. We were updated on all the details by phone or email on a regular...

Xan is awesome! She works very hard to please her clients. She went far beyond my expectation of showing me different homes. She provided expert opinions and solid advice. She helped with the negotiations and then with all the inspections. After closing, Xan was there to recommend contractors for some of the work we needed....

We have bought and sold several houses, and Xan is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. Xan is approachable, communicative, knowledgeable, and hard-working, and makes you feel as if your home is the most important house she has to sell. I most highly recommend her without hesitation.

My wife and I had a hard time selling our homepartially due to a very slow market. We found Xan when she showed our home to a perspective buyer and we were very impressed with her dedication and professionalism. Shortly after agreeing to be our agent, she had professional pictures of our home on the...

We have sold and purchased multiple properties with Xan. The latest was a lakefront home. She is a consummate professional Realtor. She is responsive and helpful. She is there for you even after the sale. She has a deep contact list of professionals to assist every step of sale or purchase. Her opinion is invaluable...

Xan met our every need. She was professional and extremely patient as she showed us multiple houses. Our preference in home style and price changed as our focused changed, and other relators may have lost patience, but Xan was a professional in every aspect. I would highly recommend Xan. We are now looking for our...

We recently purchased our dream house on the lake. The stars must have aligned just right as destiny to bring XAN into our buying world and boy are we glad the real estate gods were looking down on us! We could not have asked for a better fit in Xan. Xan is a true asset...

Hands down the best realtor in the area! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to purchase or sell their home. We’ve had the pleasure of doing both with Xan. She knows her market! She was always available when we had questions and was prompt with answers. But most of all she cares about her...

Xan has helped us on multiple purchases and a sale and has done an outstanding job every time. She is extremely attentive to our needs and does not waste any time finding us what we need for our family. I would highly recommend her for any real estate needs.

You can’t get a better Realtor than Xan! Everyone was telling us how selling a house can be a nightmare. With Xan it’s the easiest thing you’ll ever do! She handled everything from beginning to end! Thanks for everything Xan!

I had just about given up on finding the right real estate agent. Some I had interviewed basically wanted me to give my home away and then thanks to my real estate agent in Illinois, she found Xan. Xan was very knowledgeable in the market value and responded immediately to my calls and questions. She...

Xan Pilgrim is the true meaning of professional in the Real Estate business. From the initial meeting to taking pictures and listing the house, all the way to completing the contract, Xan truly “WORKED” for us. Any time we didn’t seem to have many people looking at our house she would put together a plan...
