He currently lives in a restored and enlarged historic log house on the Moorman’s River at Sugar Hollow, near the reservoir and the Shenandoah National Park. His primary professional focus is on land, farms, estates, and distinctive, historic properties, but he is also quite active in the residential marketplace.
The Stevens family heritage is deeply based in the real estate profession. Ross’ great uncle, William T. Stevens, founded Stevens & Company in the 1930s but even back at the turn of the century, his great, great, great uncles were selling Albemarle properties. In 1927, Ross’ other great uncle, Donald G. Stevens, promoted and developed Farmington Country Club while William T. Stevens developed the Bellair subdivision. Ross’ father, Noel Stevens, was also a successful Stevens & Company associate, representing musician, Art Garfunkel, in his purchase of Edgewood and handling the sale of Jefferson’s Poplar Forest to a University of Virginia medical alumnus. Today, Ross applies a century of insight and knowledge acquired in the family business to his life and profession.
