Billie has been active in the real estate business for over thirty years, serving clients in the Richmond and Charlottesville markets. Born in New Orleans, she originally moved to the Charlottesville area in 1966 to ride and show Junior Hunters. She particularly loves the numerous small town charms of Charlottesville as well as the physical beauty of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding countryside.
Billie enjoys introducing newcomers to the area and sharing her knowledge of local history and culture. Her clients appreciate her integrity and thoughtful attention. In fact, one of Billie’s favorite aspects of selling real estate is the friendships she maintains with her clients after the purchase or sale of a home.
With experience in marketing existing and new homes, Billie understands the complexities of the purchase, renovation, design and construction processes. Restoration and construction run in the family as her husband, Jim Magerfield, co-owns Gibson-Magerfield Corporation, which specializes in building fine new homes and restoring distinctive, often historic, existing properties.
When she’s not working, Billie especially loves spending quality time with her family. She also enjoys collecting antiques, gardening, skiing, learning to play golf, and walking, particularly with her Pug, Russell.
