Welcome to the Hampton Roads area of Southeast Virginia!

Our area is rich with military bases, beaches, the Chesapeake Bay, water activities, seafood, history, colleges and universities, and so much more! Some of the localities you maybe relocating to are Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, York County, Smithfield or Isle of Wight County, Suffolk, Gloucester, Williamsburg, or James City County. Wherever the location might be, I will be able to help you. If I can't help you directly, I am connected a referral source of other very wonderful REALTORs!

Currently, I am fortunate enough to hold the position of Managing Broker of the Coldwell Banker Traditions - Peninsula office. I enjoy helping our agents become better at helping YOU with your real estate needs. In addition, I am also still working with clients, helping them buy and/or sell their properties!

I have lived on the Peninsula off and on for many years, so I am very familiar with the area. I have been licensed since 2005. During that time, I have seen many different economic cycles, each one requiring a different skill set. I have also become very involved in our local REALTOR association, taking on many leadership roles. All of these positions help in becoming more knowledgeable and connected in the community.

And, of course, like most of my colleagues, I am and have been involved in many other civic organizations - from being a PTA volunteer to a Red Cross Disaster Relief volunteer to Chairman of our local Peninsula Youth Orchestra.

Bottom line, just know that if you just need to chat, work up a strategy, understand the process of buying or selling, or just want to hear your thoughts out loud -- you can call, text or emai me anytime! If nothing, I am good listener and I will respons to YOUR needs, not talk about mine!

My direct cell number is 757.598.1232 or email me at sandra(at)sandrahood(dotted)com

I look forward to meeting you!

The most responsive, dedicated, and professional realtor I have ever have the pleasure of working with in the last 20 years. Sandra embodies everything that we needed in a dedicated realtor. Sandra understood the importance of trust and communication while working with military service members living away and abroad. Her unwavering work ethic gave us the peace of mind to know that our best interest was at the forefront of everything and every decision she made. Just an absolutely phenomenal realtor.

Real Estate is my profession. I have lived in Williamsburg for 31 years and forged many wonderful professional and personal relationships. Staying active in my community has provided personal fulfillment, specifically engaging the students of my Kiwanis sponsored "Builders Club" at Toano Middle School which keeps this ole man grounded and in touch. Staying active in the Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club (Past President 2014-15), Moose Lodge, Micro tour golf group, Meals on Wheels and Salvation Army allows me to call my community my office.

As a military veteran, I feel my business evolution began while serving 8 years in the Army (Captain), learning such skills as task, resource and time management. Along with the experience of owning and operating 3 hotels with my wife, I recognized the importance of listening, problem solving and focusing on priorities.

My approach is simple: I work hard, I work smart and I work honest; with the best part being, I work for YOU!

Proud to say I have been married for 34 years with 28 year old twins; my family relationship makes me feel successful allowing everything else fall into place. I am a down to earth person and a businessman who has chosen Real Estate as my business.

In addition to Coldwell Banker's training and powerful marketing platform, my clients get me as their Real Estate liaison. Sharing what I know and recognizing what I do not know allows US to stay 2-steps ahead during the transaction. Although Buying or Selling a home is a business transaction, it sure is nice to have a Realtor you feel comfortable with as we reach our goals. And it is okay to have some fun along the way. CERTIFICATIONS: Military Relocation Professional, Accredited Buyers Representative, Seller Representative Specialist.

Steve Ewell has handled the sales and purchases of several properties for our family over the past few years. Steve is always quick to assist, answers questions and do the leg work needed to complete any real estate transaction. He is the ultimate professional and I have often recommended him to others looking for a real estate agent.

May wife and I worked with Steve Ewell to purchase our first home and really can't say enough good things about him. He is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with his time (including mornings, evenings and weekends over a course of several months). He answered every question, explained every form and every part of the process clearly. Steve made it as painless and straightforward as possible...We highly recommend Steve Ewell!!

Steve was very helpful in my home buying process. Some realtors can be "pushy", but not Steve. He was not satisfied until I was, and worked very hard to get us both there. He was available any time i needed him, even working late into the night and on the weekends. Since this was my first home buying experience, naturally I had many questions. Steve was very patient and understanding through this, and I commend him for that as I can be rather picky at times. His responsiveness was top notch, and he communicates very well. I would recommend Steve 100% and will be using him again in a few years for my next home purchase. If you are in the market to buy or sell, don't hesitate to call Steve!

Our home was a challenge to sell. The home itself was beautiful, but the terrain of the home proved to be the challenge. Steve coached us to remain positive and patient, while providing us activity reports on the various websites. We persevered and sold our house, thank you Steve. Always positive, informative and never pushy. S&B

Steve was wonderful to work with. Our new home included an adjacent parcel of land, which made the financing challenging. Step by step, he worked between the lender and us and made this happen. Friendly and courteous, he kept an eye out for our best well being. K&T

We were first time home buyers, Steve consistently informed us of our next step and provided options along the way. There was never pressure, only patience throughout our 11 month search. We were very fortunate to have him as our Realtor. B&R
