I have been a licensed Real Estate Broker for over 25 years in Virginia and North Carolina as well as a Virginia Auctioneer. Over the years my expertise has focused mostly around Farm & Timberlands, Historic Homes and Lakefront Properties. Melba and I have the responsibility of being the stewards of “Oakley” the ancestral farm and home of Robert Boyd (my Great, Great,Great Grandfather!). The manor house was built in 1790 with major addition in 1834 and restorations in 1973 & 2002. The farm located on the shore of Bluestone Creek, Kerr Lake, Virginia. We truly live or work! Melba and I hope that you will stop by our office and visit, share a glass of Ice Tea or a cup of coffee. If you stay long enough you will surely hear about our fantastic Grandchildren and how much we enjoy living in Virginia’s Lake Country. If you’re not careful, you too will find that this “Best Kept Secret in Virginia” is the best place to enjoy a prosperous and fulfilling life!

Rennie Bridgman grew up on a family farm in Dinwiddie County near Fort Pickett and Blackstone, VA. The family grew tobacco, corn, grain and for a while operated a small dairy selling grade B milk. Rennie was exposed to all aspects of rural living including milking cows by hand. Although as an adult he never depended on farming for a livelihood, he has always enjoyed watching crops being planted, tended to and harvested.
Rennie graduated college in 1967 with a BS Degree in business administration and his first job was with a local bank. He then developed an interests in law enforcement and criminal justice resulting in a thirty year career as a Probation and Parole officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
He retired at the age of 55 and soon thereafter obtained a real estate license. He worked for a local brokerage and obtained his broker license as soon as he was eligible to do so and in 2010 affiliated with United Country-Landmark Realty in Victoria, VA. He operates the Dinwiddie office under the name United Country-Windy Oak Realty, which is the name of his family farm.
Today Rennie lives on the family farm with his wife of 46 years and a daughter and son-in-law who built a house on the farm. They also have a son who lives in Colonial Heights, VA and they anticipate he will return to the farm in the near future. Rennie’s greatest enjoyment is spending time with his two grandsons, ages 12 & 17.
Rennie serves as the chair of the administrative board of Mansons United Methodist Church, is a charter member of the Darvills Ruritan Club and is a member of the Dinwiddie County Chamber of Commerce. He was appointed by the Board of Supervisors as a commission member of the Crater Youth Care Commission where he currently serves. This commission operates a juvenile detention facility.
