Toby Beavers ~ Charlottesville Realtor


A Savvy Charlottesville Realty Since 2003

Charlottesville realtor Toby Beavers specializes in new homes, luxury homes, historic homes, condos, and townhomes.

Like every popular destination in the United States, the Charlottesville real estate market is hot; and extremely tough to rent or purchase a home if you live out of state.

A beautiful home comes in on an alert from one of the big three real estate sites and you suddenly realize that you now need a savvy Charlottesville luxury realtor who will drive over to the property, do a quick inspection, give you a call while walking through the home while making a video tour, and coming up with a plan on how to ‘hold’ this house until you get here.

If this sounds good…then count me in. I will faithfully work for you, email you homes faster than any other realtor, and try every tactic to hold the house and hopefully save you money.

How I Differ From Other Top Charlottesville Luxury Realtors

I offer YOU a .5% rebate on any home you purchase using me as your Charlottesville realtor. For example, on a $400,000 home, you’ll save $2,000 just for using me.

And as a full-time real estate since 1996, you will feel confident that I know what I am doing. I’ve learned almost every trick in the book. Kinda like Houdini!

And as I steer you through your buying experience I’ll make it enjoyable and fun! Yes, fun and enjoyable…

After 18 years of endless driving, I know every nook and cranny of the Charlottesville real estate market. I know what’s going to be a superb investment and what’s not.

I had to learn this as a house renovator for over 30 years. One wrong buy and you can lose big time.

Seven Interesting Things to do Around Charlottesville


Charlottesville is a truly wonderful place to live and work. There are many reasons that this savvy Charlottesville luxury realtor has chosen the city as home. If you are looking for some unique and lively things to do in town, look no further than these seven options.


Connect with your inner historian by touring the former residency of Thomas Jefferson. Monticello is just outside town and features a 5,000-acre plantation that previously grew tobacco. The iconic home itself was designed by Jefferson.

The Raven Room

Toby is an amateur historian and is always happy to help you find some of the most unique sights in town. On the University of Virginia campus, you’ll find author Edgar Allan Poe’s former dorm room which has been converted to a small museum. Restored to the author’s 1826 era, you’ll also see various references to his works scattered around.

Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection

Art fans will love a visit to the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection on the UVA campus. Here, you’ll find both rotating and permanent exhibitions. Charlottesville is a surprisingly artsy town, and this is a great place to see the blending of culture and art.

Shenandoah National Park

While there are a number of nice nature areas immediately surrounding the area, a favorite of  Toby Beavers Charlottesville realtor is Shenandoah National Park, which is roughly 30 miles away. In addition to a great place to see wildlife like black bears, there are a number of great hikes. My personal favorites are Hawksbill Mountain, Dark Hollow Falls, and the Old Rag Hike.

Duck Donuts

Charlottesville is filled with fun places to eat. A favorite place for breakfast or a quick snack is Duck Donuts, the small chain that includes a variety of wonderfully creative tastes. Whether you opt for the Beach Ball, Bacon in the Sun, Coconut Island Bliss, or another creation, it will definitely be a favorite place to visit.

Virginia Discovery Museum

If you’re looking for something fun for the little ones, bring them to learn through exploration at Virginia Discovery Museum. Children can engage in many exhibits such as the STEM Lab, Construction Zone, Literacy Lounge, and Sensory Studio. The museum frequently offers special programs as well.

New Dominion Bookshop

Historic Charlottesville has many wonderful places to explore. One that this inquisitive Charlottesville realtor has spent quite a bit of time in is the New Dominion Bookshop. In addition to being the state’s oldest bookstore, it also features a beautiful English rose garden behind the building.

Final Thoughts

Charlottesville is truly a wonderful town for families, young professionals, and those looking to retire. These are seven of my favorite things to do.

As a savvy realtor since 1996, I believe there are four types of home buyers. Senior citizens; parents with young children; ones that enjoy living in a friendly community, and those that want peace and quiet and enjoy the country lifestyle.

Which type of buyer are you?

Well, if I was moving to Charlottesville with the plan of living in a community, I would choose the following communities: Ednam (the Boar’s Head Sports Club and Birdwood Golf Course), Farmington (Farmington Country Club designed by Thomas Jefferson), the Club at Glenmore (gated), Keswick Estate (Keswick Hall and Golf Club)(gated), and Old Trail (Old Trail Golf Club). These five fabulous communities offer golf, tennis, swimming, and much more.

If affordable living is what you are looking for then consider homes in Forest Lakes and Western Ridge. Both offer wonderful walking trails, a pool, and tennis courts.
