A little about me

and why I love real estate

Born and Raised in Richmond VA, Moved out here to Mechanicsville about 28 Years ago

Alumni of VT


I have spent the better part of my Career in the Hospitality Field before moving over to Real Estate.

My attention to detail and passion for treating others as you would like to be treated has served me well during my Career.

I believe that home is where the heart is and I want to help you find the Home of your Dreams! Whether you are a first time home buyer or seeking your retirement residence, the experience should be nothing less than seamless. I help my clients navigate the entire process from start to finish with the end result being a wonderful journey.

As part of the Mike Chenault Group, we take a team approach to Real Estate.  Our clients deserve the full service and attention that only a team of experts can consistently provide.


Outside of Real Estate I have been a Football Mom to my boys for 20 Years.  Successful Real Estate Transactions are like football games….  It is the product of many players, coaches and other behind the scenes people that play a major role in their teams success.

“Deanne Butler is a personable, knowledgeable and responsive real estate agent. She greatly assisted us in our search for land to purchase. Listed as an agent out of Richmond, VA, she assisted us in land searches all across the central portion of Virginia. She utilized an impressive network of contacts to address our questions regarding a variety of property listings in a number of counties. Additionally her negotiation strategy and approach ultimately saved us a full 30% off the initial listing/asking price of the land we purchased. She was truly our representative who was instrumental in our purchase of land.”
