Significant Sale | Katrina Pulliam, Associate Broker

Meet Katrina Pulliam, Associate Broker with the Welcome Home Realty Group… She believes her clients deserve an agent who always has their best interest at heart and Katrina works with the utmost integrity in order to do so. Katrina’s clients know that she is about them, will put in the work to get the transaction done professionally, that they will be in the home of their dreams, and get the highest market value for their home.


Recently we received a letter of commendation from a seller that had an extraordinary experience with Katrina. We would love to share from both the seller and Katrina herself regarding the sale of this gorgeous and elegant Toano home.



“I recently had the pleasure of working with one of your agents/brokers, Ms. Katrina Pulliam, in the sale of my house in Toano and the purchase of another home in Kiln Creek. Please see the attached letter of commendation that I felt compelled to write after a very positive experience!  I have worked with other real estate agents in the past who seemed to care only about concluding a sale as quickly as possible to make their commission and add to their sales record.  Nothing could be further from the experience that I had with Ms. Pulliam!  She made me feel like she was truly representing me and my interests, and that she cared about my objectives!!” – Christine Belcastro, Ph.D.


We interviewed Katrina regarding the sale of this Stonehouse home and here is what she had to say.


Q1. What was your favorite part of the home?

My favorite part of this home was the gourmet kitchen and the outdoor balcony and patio, very quaint.


Q2. What was the most difficult part of selling the home and how did you overcome it?

The most difficult part was that the homeowner shared a well with a neighbor that supplied the sprinkler system for both properties and they did not have an agreement in place, so we put together an agreement that satisfied the new owner and the neighbor.


Q3. What’s your favorite thing in the area?

Photo From Google

My favorite thing about the neighborhood is the Saudé Creek Vineyards and Gauthier Vineyard are close. The neighborhood Stonehouse is a golf course community, has a restaurant on site The Virginia Grill, and how centrally located between Williamsburg and Richmond this community is.


Q4. What’s your favorite part about being a REALTOR®?

My favorite part about being a realtor is knowing that I have the ability to help people accomplish their goals in the housing arena.

What Does It Mean To Go Behind The Scenes?

What Does It Mean To Go Behind The Scenes?

When we say BTS, we don’t mean the K-Pop group. BTS, in the world of film and real estate, actually stands for “Behind The Scenes“. It’s an in-depth look at the video process, specifically all that goes into creating the cinematic home feature videos we call Lifestyles.



Recently we spent some time in the OBX filming for an upcoming lifestyle video. We can’t give away too many details on the property yet but wanted to shed some light on the process. To start, typically our crew is composed of the talent (on-screen actors/actresses), the film crew, our Marketing Director, our Social Media Director, and often times the agent listing the property is there in attendance.



Once we have everyone ready to rock and roll on location – we begin filming! Not only do we shoot from ground level, but we also film the bird’s eye view of each applicable scene. With multiple cameras, we are able to capture several POVs (point of view) throughout filming. Talent act out different scenarios that are outlined by our Marketing Director, who has a specific vision in mind for each property we shoot. When our Social Media Director is not in the scene, she typically follows the film crew like a shadow – showcasing the process.



Now, where the BTS comes into play is on our Instagram specifically. If you want to check out the day’s filming process for this lifestyle, you can check it out in our Instagram Story Highlight called “On Set”. Not only does our Social Media Director cover BTS herself but she also adds in any shared videos/photos from the rest of the crew.



But wait, there’s more! By piecing together some BTS taken that day, our Marketing Director actually cut together a little video to show you all just a little taste of what’s yet to come. Follow us on all Social Media Channels to catch when the Lifestyle drops and the property is officially featured!
