    Jeffery Sowards

    I was born into a Navy family in Hawaii, lived in California and Maryland, then moved to the Fredericksburg / Spotsylvania area in the mid-1970s. At the time there may have been two traffic lights in Massaponax and Washington, D.C. was practically in a different universe!

    I was in the first graduating class from Courtland High School, received an AA from Northern Virginia Community College, and graduated with a degree in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology.

    After college I lived and worked in New York City, Los Angeles, and Zurich, Switzerland and travelled to many beautiful locations around the globe. Throughout my travels architecture always caught my eye. In 2013 I came full circle when I purchased my childhood home in Spotsylvania and fell in love once again with this historic area. It was good to be back. Recently, my family expanded to include seven hens and a boisterous rooster!

    My approach to real estate is informed by years of customer service, financial management, and a personal interest in architecture. Whether you are purchasing or selling a home, renting, or looking for an investment opportunity, you will receive my personal attention and professionalism. I am proud to be a member of the team at Coldwell Banker Elite and look forward to working with you.
