A Message from Paul Grist, Broker

Thank you for visiting our website!

I have worked in real estate full time for over 10 years here in the Greenbrier Valley, where you can find everything from country living to luxury homes.  My goal is to run a successful company that provides first class service for our clients and has a positive impact in the community where we live.  Many of our clients are discovering Lewisburg and the Greenbrier Valley for the first time and we want to introduce them, and you, to this wonderful community.

I grew up here, attended local schools and graduated from Virginia Tech in 2005.  I went into the real estate business with my father, Richard Grist, in 2006 and created Foxfire Realty.  In 2015, I created a second company, Grist Real Estate Associates, which focuses on homes, commercial, and luxury properties in the Greenbrier Valley, and maintains a strategic partnership with Foxfire.  My wife, Jessie, and I live in Lewisburg with our son Moses and our dogs.  You’ll see Cadbury, our Wire Fox Terrier, in our advertising – he’s the agency mascot and official greeter.

Welcome, and please let us know how we can help you in the Greenbrier Valley!
