Aloha from all of us at SBH Real Estate

As we grapple with the impacts of an unprecedented public health crisis, we want to provide you with timely, useful information about COVID19 and the Hampton Roads real estate market as we face this new reality together.

We Operate with Technology in Mind

Through technology and communication, SBH Real Estate is well-equipped and ideally suited to deal with the changes facing our state, the nation, and the world.

Our Sandbridge office as well as Sotheby’s International Realty offices across the region serve as convenient meeting places and conference locations, but they are closed to the general public as we practice social-distancing. However, you can connect with us in many other ways.

  • We have a dedicated property and lifestyle video channel.
