I am a real estate agent because I enjoy helping others fulfill their dreams and I realize that for most people, buying or selling a home is an important part of that journey. I am a full-time, full-service agent with over 13 years of local experience who has helped nearly 450 clients buy and sell homes, even in this challenging market. My clients love working with me because I am dedicated to listening to their needs and then working diligently to serve them. They have described me as honest and down-to-earth. As your agent, I will deliver outstanding customer service and I am confident that I possess the commitment and knowledge it takes to get the job done.

As a first time home buyer, I was really nervous about starting the process of buying a home but Damien made every step of it easy and communicated well what steps I needed to take at every point from beginning to end. He is not the kind of real estate agent who will persuade you to buy a dud of a home so that he can get paid faster, he cares about his clients and would rather show you a 100 homes until you find one you love (and has the value there) rather than pressure you to buy one with obvious issues. He goes beyond what I feel most agents do in order to investigate if it's a good buy or not. I myself have witnessed him get down on his hands and knees to look in a crawl space (while wearing a nice suit) and then tell me point blank I don't want this one. We also had many conversations about the value of the home vs. the cost to renovate and whether it was a good buy or not. He was always patient with me while we looked at many homes around town. Finally I found a home I love and he negotiated the price down well, then we began the closing process. He helped make every step go smoothly and was always there to answer my questions (and I had many as a first time home buyer who was also going for a 203k FHA loan)! I would highly recommend Damien to anyone looking to buy a home, and particularly first time home buyers!- Audra Powell
This was the second time we used Damien Cummings services as a realtor, The first time to buy and this time to sell. When it came time for us to sell we could not think for anyone else who we could trust to handle the sale of our home, especially since we are no longer living in the Richmond area. He has always been very courteous and helpful. With his expertise he easily anticipated each step and went the extra mile to assure that the closing transaction went as smoothly as possible. I highly recommended him to everyone seeking a realtor- Dave Coss
“Damien met with me in April 2015, and we viewed numerous houses in the nasty humidity. I felt like I dragged him all over town, but he never let on that it was inconvenient or bothersome. The last house was the charm and it blew me away. That started the long process of putting a contract in, improving my credit, getting the contract accepted, and mountainous red tape. There were times I couldn't get in touch with involved parties, and it only took Damien a moment to bridge the gap. He kept the ball in motion and linked the parties together---he left nothing to chance, and he left no loose ends. In early August, I closed on and became the proud owner of one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen. Believe in miracles, and he will work one for you, too”--Deborah Bowman
After moving to Richmond a little over 2 years ago following an unexpected relocation for work, we decided it was time to make Central Virginia our home. We are so thankful we were able to connect with Damien Cummings through Zillow because he made the entire process simple and efficient. Damien's pleasant and friendly demeanor paired with his use of technology and knowledge of real estate and the sales process made finding and purchasing our new home here a fun and exciting experience. We were always amazed that he not only guided us through each step, but also anticipated and prepared us for those ahead. His guidance and support allowed us to find a great home in our desired location at a price below appraised value. In addition to his guidance in the home selection and purchase contract, he also connected us with a local lender who was equally as friendly, efficient, and tech savvy. We could not be more please and without a doubt know where to turn when we sell or buy again in the future. Thanks, Damien, for helping us make Richmond home!- Sherman and Lisa Burroughs
I've had the opportunity to work with Damien Cummings over the last 6 months or so. He is very professional and knowledgeable. Having his assistance made buying a house a lot less burdensome. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house- Dietra Trent
"In May of 2006, my husband and I listed our home with Damien Cummings, who worked jointly with another agent in his office to sell our home in record time. We listed our home on a Friday, and by Sunday of the same weekend we had received 5 offers on our home. While market conditions certainly had an impact on us receiving almost $10,000 over our asking price, we also know it was Damien and his team's hard work combined with an excellent marketing strategy that helped bring about this outcome.
Damien and his team staged our home, provided counsel on the perfect price point, pre-listed pictures on their website, and hosted a full weekend open house. Damien was always available to us and provided all the guidance we needed. Damien has our support and recommendation as an individual with integrity and excellence in serving his clients." - Matthew and Rachel Ray
"Before selecting a realtor to sell our home, we conducted several interviews. Damien, working together with another agent, impressed us from start to finish. While other realtors told us what they'd do for us if we chose them, Damien's team came prepared with a market analysis of our home and a real plan as to how they would sell it. They handled many of the details other realtors didn't and was always available to answer our questions and to give us sound counsel. They sold our home quickly and for above our asking price. The whole process was as smooth and as pleasant as it could possibly be. We highly recommend Damien to anyone looking to buy or sell a home." - Harold & Michele Wentworth

“Damien worked very hard for me and even when I wanted to give up he said, "Let me try one more time". He dealt with all of the back and forth communications that seemed to stress me to no end and he always left me feeling a little better. He was excellent to have on my side." – Sharon Hembrick "
Damien was attentive to our requests and paid attention to detail. The transaction closed smoothly and on time." - Buyer "He is good!" - Shiva Subedi

“Damien was very cooperative in showing me what I wanted to see in the price range and areas I desired. He made suggestions and recommendations along the way and was great to work with. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him as a Realtor." - Dana Klevgard "
What a guy - he was always there for us - we had a few bumps in the road, but we managed to get through them together - I think we both learned something during this sale, and I think Damien is going far with your company. I salute him for all his good efforts." - Mike Coston "
"Damien is very knowledgeable, and I highly recommended him to everyone seeking homeownership. He is very attentive to the details and current market trends. He was always available and professional. Not only was Damien very professional, knowledgeable, and patient, but he also had a team that possessed the same qualities. I recommend the entire team (loan officer and home inspector). Great process - could tell he really cared!!! " - Latoya Williams, Henrico
“Damien was wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. He made everything go as smooth as possible even when there were bumps in the road from other parties such as the bank or the inspector. He helped us get the best deal and was an amazing negotiator. Damien is very detailed oriented and he is always available and willing to help. He is patient and answers questions even when I bet I asked the same more than once. He prepares in advance and that gave me peace of mind.” –Karla Livas
