Rob Lawson is a Roanoke native with an extensive background in both real estate and the law. Prior to attending college, he started a successful residential property maintenance business which provided a solid foundation for continued learning in the field. When the opportunity to attend college came his way, he took advantage of it and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.

After graduation, he began work at Waldvogel, Poe, and Cronk as the commercial sales and leasing assistant to the then president of the National Association of REALTORS©, Dennis Cronk. Eventually he took on the role of Director of Property Services, where he ran the commercial and residential property management divisions.

In 2003, Rob left the firm to earn his Juris Doctorate and is now a licensed attorney in Virginia, North Carolina, and the District of Columbia. After practicing law for six years, he and his Dad, Greene Lawson, began brainstorming on joining forces in the residential property management business. In 2012, Rob and Greene Lawson, formed Lawson Realty Group, LLC.

Lawson Realty Group has managed my father’s and my properties for ever 12 years. They simplify the business of owning properties by providing comprehensive services from initial leasing services to ongoing maintenance to lease close-out. They are always available to serve tenant needs and answer my questions and treat each of my properties as if they were their own. Their services allow me to focus on my business while resting easy in the knowledge that my property investments are being properly cared for. I would recommend their services to all.

We feel confident in endorsing Lawson Realty Group to anyone in the market, as they are always professional and responsive to our needs as owners, and to the needs of our tenants.

Hi Rob, Thank you so much for the excellent work you have done managing my house in Roanoke. I’ve appreciated your interest and concern and the businesslike way you have managed maintenance and marketing. Best wishes to you and your family. Hope you have a joyful holiday season and a peaceful new year.

We used Rob as our purchasing agent for our recent move. Rob is a very experienced and hard working professional. He assisted us in all areas of our purchase, from finding the perfect home to securing financing, and finding professionals to help us with some renovations. Most importantly, however, is the issue of trust. Like many areas of life, you have to work with a REALTOR you can trust, and I trust Rob implicitly. I would highly recommend Rob for all of your real estate needs, whether you are purchasing, selling, looking to rent your property, or simply need some knowledgeable advice.
Matthew and Lauren Dunne
Rob made what is typically a very stressful situation a fun and enjoyable one. He went out of his way to guide us and make time for us.His knowledge of the area was a great asset in helping us choose the location we wanted to live. He took the time to answer every question we had, making us feel as comfortable as possible, as we were first time buyers. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor. He has an amazing personality, is very easy to work with, and makes sure you are 150% satisfied!
