What Do We Offer?
Lexicon Real Estate and Relocation Services
Moving to a new location is certainly exciting, but it can be challenging, time-consuming, and costly. UVa's goal is to minimize the stress that comes with planning your move, and to provide financial support when you sell or buy your home. Our partnership with Lexicon Relocation provides access to a professional relocation counselor who will work closely with you throughout the relocation process. At no charge to you, Lexicon's counselor will help organize a relocation plan, coordinate services and answer questions regarding your move. They can assist you with the sale of your current home and the purchase of a home at your new location. Best of all, if you use Lexicon's services to sell or purchase a home you will receive a cash-back rebate (after closing) of 0.25% of the sale or purchase price, which provides additional financial support for your move.
