As independent contractors, real estate agents make the choices for how they manage their appointments. An unfortunate growing trend is to use an automated scheduling service so the agent does not have to be involved in this part of the process.

Known in historic circles as Henrytown(e), the area is believed to be the third English settlement in Virginia.
