Kelly & Philip Thornton | Connecting People & Property

I’ve been in real estate for over 19 years. I’m Co-Owner/Associate Broker of RE/MAX Crossroads, Owner/Broker of Paragon Property Management and Crossroads Real Estate Referral Company, LLC in Culpeper, VA. Having grown up in the area and attended college at MWC (now University of Mary Washington), I’m very familiar with what the Greater Piedmont area has to offer and it’s ever-changing market. My background in psych/counseling often comes in handy when guiding clients and helping them work through what can sometimes be an emotional process for buyers and sellers. I’ve been recognized in the Greater Piedmont Honor Society and am a multi-year RE/MAX award winner. I sit on the Greater Piedmont Realtors Executive Board. I am a Sterling R (RPAC) contributor. When I’m not wearing my real estate hat, I enjoy spending time with my family and finding time to recharge by spending time outdoors, horseback riding, playing music, exploring wine country, etc. I also enjoy finding ways to give back to the community and volunteer in the classroom/school as much as possible.

I am Co-Owner and Principal Broker of RE/MAX Crossroads in Culpeper VA and have over 16 years of local real estate expertise. I’m a native of the area, with family ties going back over 250 years. The Piedmont has always been my home. I am a graduate of Elon College, with a BA in economics, and have a strong background in finance. Prior to entering the world of real estate, I oversaw and managed $13+ billion within Wachovia Securities Fund Source program. During my real estate career I have handled hundreds of successful sales – something that comes in handy when you’re looking for a REALTOR who is experienced and can guide you through the buying/selling process! I’m proud to say that I’ve been recognized as the Greater Piedmont Realtor Salesperson & Broker of the Year, and am a Virginia REALTORS Honor Society and Broker Honor Society recipient, as well as, inducted into RE/MAX Hall of Fame and Platinum and Chairmans Clubs. I just recently finished serving as the Greater Piedmont Realtors’ President and have been a long-time, passionate RPAC contributor. When I’m not wearing my REALTOR hat, I enjoy coaching my son’s soccer team and traveling with our family. Kelly and I are avid scuba divers and enjoy hiking, touring the Piedmont’s vineyards, and cooking.
