Rachel came into real estate with many years of experience in customer service and sales. She has a real ear for helping the client articulate goals, needs and desires. And, this same talent gives her an upper hand as a great problem solver.
She remembers the joy and the thrill of purchasing the home of her dreams, and today she thrives on seeing that joy in the eyes of her buyer clients. That’s why some of her favorite activities are guiding home buyers through the steps to a successful purchase, attending their closings, and handing them the keys to their new homes.
Because she takes the time to get acquainted and learn something of their hopes and dreams, she can ask the right questions. Answering those questions prompts her buyer clients to focus on what they really want in a home, so they’ll be happy with their choice. At the same time, considering their answers to her questions helps her sellers make the most beneficial decisions.
Rachel brings to the table a keen eye for property condition and has a second nature ability to assist the client in visualizing dreams and helping address the affordability of changes the client may want to make on a property.
Rachel loves the real estate business because she gets to work with so many different people. She loves helping families find their dream home or sell their home so they can move to other locations around Hampton Roads or around the country.
Rachel makes a serious business fun, and she treats her clients like friends and hopes to keep them as friends for a lifetime!

Having a home inspection completed before selling your house is one of the best investments you can make.
There are two reasons why:
- Potential buyers will feel more confident when submitting their offer.
- It reduces the chances of the buyer asking you to repair something after their offer is accepted.
The cost for a home inspection can range anywhere from about $300 to $700 (depending on the size of your home). Listing you home knowing that you have covered all aspect will give you the piece of mind and the confidence as a seller and will lead to a successful closing.
Getting ready to put your house on the market can be emotional.
But removing your emotional attachment will give you the best shot at selling your home for top dollar.
The goal is to attract buyers and sell your home for the best price in the shortest amount of time.
A great photographer will take quality photos that will make your home look better than it really is.
This means your photos (and the home’s price) will be the first thing home buyers see.
And professional photos that can maximize your home’s appeal will get more of those buyers interested.
Most real estate agents will include professional photos in their marketing plan, so you can expect your agent to coordinate the photo shoot.
Showing your home to prospective buyers is a key step in the selling process.
Being flexible and making it easy for buyers to tour your home will boost your chances of getting the best offer. Your representative will coordinate and confirm with you personally all the showings.
When a buyer is ready to proceed with an offer, they’ll put it in writing on a contract, also known as a “purchase agreement.” The offer is submitted by the buyer’s agent to your representative who will carefully evaluate and present to you all your best options.
Once you as sellers have accepted the best offer, your representative will coordinate all inspections, appraisals, and closing.
There will probably be 2-5 days between the time you sign and the day that the sale of your home is official. Your agent will schedule the buyer’s final walkthrough and assure that all steps have been completed for buyer to close. Once the sale is officially close the sale will be recorded and funded.

Finding our dream house
As first time home buyers, we were nervous about finding a great realtor. Luckily our mortgage lender referred us to Rachel Lane with Action Realty. Rachel was everything we were looking for in a realtor; honest, trustworthy, hardworking & most importantly she was our “bulldog”. Rachel fought for our dream house every step of the way and always had our best interest at heart. Rachel not only ensured that we got the best deal on our house but went above and beyond to make sure that the process was as stress free for us as possible.
Rachel Lane at Action Realty is always amazing to work with! She has helped me find and purchase not just once, but twice! She is always extremely informative and fun to work with! This company makes buying and selling effortless, and I will always recommend them.
Rachel was integral
Our realtor Rachel Morris was amazing throughout the whole buying and selling process. I was considering being my own listing agent and I am SO glad I didn’t. Rachel was integral in providing solutions to unexpected issues that arose that I would have been lost in dealing with. She handled everything and took away the stress of both buying and then selling our house. I would highly recommend Rachel and Action Realty to anyone who wants the best and easiest real estate experience.
