Meet the Team

Bernice Sim Team Leader

Bernice relocated from Boston, and before that Toronto, and has lived in Richmond for over 10 years. She moved to Richmond partially for the awesome real estate, the weather, the beauty, and absolutely loves it here. For this reason, she finds herself often helping people who are also relocating, as she understands what they are going through.

Although she lives in the West End, she has helped move people all over and still marvels at the array of different neighborhoods in RVA. Lately, she has helped numerous estate sale transactions and loves to help in and oversee the transformation a house as it "gets ready for market." Her special skills involve marketing and social media. For fun, she loves to swing dance, host board game nights, and enjoys kayaking. She has two teen boys at home and two dogs

We enjoy cultivating relationships with our clients and earning your trust so that by the end of the process, we are honored to call you a friend. You will receive an invitation to join The Happy New Beginnings Club on Facebook, where we announce fun events, occasional giveaways like our Thanksgiving Holiday Pie Pick-Up and the Magical Holiday Party in December.
