The KEY Team

Just because the market changes doesn’t mean our principles have to. Here at The KEY Team, our business was founded on three core values: honesty, integrity, and communication. That means when you work with us and our team, we stay true to our values while providing our clients with the best customer service in the industry. 
Established in 2017, The KEY Team is a comprehensive, full-service real estate firm based in Richmond, VA, and serving the surrounding areas. At The KEY Team, we understand how important the decision to buy and sell real estate can be. Whether you are purchasing your first house, selling the home you raised your family in, or purchasing an investment property, nothing is more important than having a reliable, knowledgeable real estate team by your side, guiding you through every step of the way. Our team is five agents strong, and together we have over 25+ years of collective industry experience. Our mission is to ensure our clients receive exceptional customer service with every transaction building lifelong relationships.  
Dakia Knight - Real Estate Broker/Co-Founder of The KEY Team
Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Dakia has served clients in the area for over ten years. Dakia got her start in the industry right after graduating from the University of Richmond. What began as an administrative role for a real estate company would eventually turn into a full-fledged real estate career as a Realtor and eventually a real estate associate broker. After a few years as a solo top-producing agent, she teamed up with Shakeema Daniels in 2017 to form the KEY Team, a full-service real estate team that prioritizes clients’ needs above all else. She is currently the Managing Broker for the brokerage at ICON Realty Group. As a real estate broker, Dakia wants to raise the standard of client care. Her transactions begin with creating trusting, mutually respectful relationships between her and her clients. Dakia’s mission is to create a one-of-a-kind experience that takes the stress out of buying and selling real estate. As a result, she created a team built around those standards. Dakia holds multiple designations, including the SRS, SFR, and GREEN. She currently serves on the Legislative Committee at Richmond Association of Realtors and on the Professional Development Committee at Virginia Realtors. She also serves on the Board of Directors at the Richmond Association of Realtors. She is also the proud mom of a daughter and a dog mom to a black lab. In her spare time, you can find Dakia reading, listening to music, attending concerts and art festivals, and traveling. She is also a self-proclaimed foodie. 

At The KEYS Team, we attribute our success to the principles we live and work by. By staying true to our values, we build trust with our clients, giving them a positive home buying and selling experience that lasts long after the closing date. Our team consists of some of the best agents in the area who prioritize their relationships with their clients above everything else. By working with one of our agents, you have the whole team in your corner.
