About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat buisness. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Shannon French purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Shannon French chose Tidewater & Hampton Roads

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

You know you chose a great place when you decide to remove some of the planned activities from the to do list to stay and enjoy what the property. The house was exactly as pictured. Everything we needed, or thought we might need was there, or promptly made available by our hosts. We were nine people, over three generations, and on the last day every one of us wished we had another week to spend there. We would highly recommend the property and the French family as hosts.

Wonderful property. We had an amazing time.

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect for our family. Rooms were large and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of rom for everyone. Our children and grandkids loved the close access to the beach and water. No one was ready to leave. Grandkids already asking when we can go back. Would highly recommend this property. Owners very pleasant and helpful. Ideal vacation spot.

Loved being out away from town. The farmhouse was very clean and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first family vacation that we rented a house, always stayed in resorts. This was one of the most peaceful, restful vacations we've taken. There were 6 adults and five kids, two of them teenagers. The house had plenty of room for all of us. The second living room was nice for the kids to have their own space. Loved having the deck to grill out. Everyone enjoyed the beach and going out on the kayaks. The kids loved jumping off the pier at high tide. They all rated this as one of the best vacations we've had.

Shannon and Corey were wonderful to rent from. Very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. Our son in law had some issues with his vehicle, Corey graciously let him borrow tools that he needed and also helped out.

Our deposit was refunded very quickly.

We highly recommend this property and if we are ever back in the area, we know where we will stay!

Charming country house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this riverside home. It's far enough away from everything to afford some nice peace and quiet but not isolated as there are are other homes nearby. We came to bring our grandchildren to see Williamsburg and Jamestown and to visit Busch Gardens. The house was a little farther from Williamsburg than we would have liked (30+ miles), but only a few miles from nearby Gloucester Courthouse, which has shopping and restaurants. The house is a nicely renovated older home with lots of room for everyone. You won't be disappointed.
