Agent Bio: Yates Nobles

Professional Real Estate Consultant
​Yates is a native Virginian with a multi-cultural perspective.  She has loved the Charlottesville area as home since 1974.  Yates' philosophy is to bring integrity, caring and personal attention to her clients, as opposed to taking on too many clients at once and depriving her clients of the care they deserve.   She has lived in France (Paris), NYC, Colorado and on the Navajo reservation, and has traveled extensively abroad.  Her father was a builder so from childhood she traipsed through home construction projects. A natural problem solver and trained negotiator, Yates enjoys helping others sift their wants and needs so they can sell their home smoothly and transition into the home that fits the next phase of life.    Whether you are a novice buyer, trading upward or ready to downsize, Yates offers you the background, expertise and experience that counts in your real estate transaction.
