RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - One Richmond Realtor is making quite a “rawr” after featuring inflatable dinosaurs in listing photos.

Sonya Boatwright, a Realtor with Rashkind Saunders & Co., birthed the unique idea after one of her clients had to abruptly leave their home.

“My clients got transferred for work and thus had to move from the home which they really loved. So we decided to make a sad situation into an opportunity to have a little fun,” said Boatwright. “Over some beers at a local brewery, we hatched the idea of having dinosaurs living in the home as if they were humans.”
