Alexis ThompsonOwner and Principal Broker
After ten years helping local businesses and governments throughout Virginia grow and invest in their futures, Alexis decided to seek out her own business dreams. Beginning at One South Realty Group, Alexis quickly grew her business to become one of the top producing agents, and after three years decided through deep, long consultation with her husband, to strike it out on her own and establish River Fox Realty. She wanted to go back to what drew her into helping local businesses in the first place- community. Nothing says community like homes and helping people find and sell those homes goes right to the heart of our communities. To further the pursuit, Alexis decided to locate River Fox Realty as close as possible to her own community, the Forest Hill and Westover Hills neighborhoods, setting up a dream world where she can live and work while her children attend school right next door.
