Richmond, VA – A Great Place to Call Home

With a rich cultural heritage and fantastic location, Richmond has a lot to offer its residents. Located less than an hour inland from the Atlantic Ocean and close to the Blue Ridge mountains, Richmond is an independent city and capital of Virginia. The climate in Richmond is fairly moderate with the Atlantic Ocean contributing to humid summers and mild winters. Home to a handful of Fortune 500 companies as well as more than 200,000 residents, you’ll find that the area has been an important part of America even before the United States was established. It’s where Pocahontas lived and Edgar Allan Poe grew up. Thomas Jefferson even designed its capitol. Richmond has the charm of a small town along with all the benefits of a major city.
