Just need to get the leading edge of my prop cleaned up a bit, maybe have it checked to ensure the pitch etc. is correct. Any suggestions for reputable and reliable shops in southeast Virginia or northeast North Carolina?

Agreed.

I sent a spare 3 blade to Murphy's Prop Shop in Norfolk a few years ago and the cost was almost as much as a new prop. Of course they sent me several pages of "technical data" about the prop, which is worthless to me. For that kind of money I would have spent a few more bucks and got another 4 blade for a spare.

OJ told me that they can repair one of their 4 blades cheaper than anyone else, and get it back to tighter specs.

Buy a new one from OJ, and they'll fix the old one as part of the deal, then you'll have a spare! They fixed mine and had it back in 3 days.

Murphy's and Bay Propeller in the Norfolk / VB area is who I always use.
