Our Client Will Wake Up with This View Every Morning!

Our Client Will Wake Up with This View Every Morning!

Here is one of the most sublime and transporting views I’ve sold in fifteen years practicing real estate in Boone! Just seven convenient miles south of town in a Blowing Rock subdivision named Misty Mountain you’ll find these exquisite views of the gorge below town. They say on a clear winter’s night you can see the skyline of downtown Charlotte! Isn’t this a gorgeous vista! I must have done something somewhere right to be asked to assist clients acquire a home with this panorama! I’m thankful for the opportunity to earn my livelihood in such an inspiring environment and grateful to our clients who rely on us to protect them in the process and so enable us to continue our work up here every day! Life in Boone is good!

Incredible View from Misty Mountain

We still don’t have leaves on the trees as of April 28th but we hope to see them soon! On Friday we were in the Misty Mountain subdivision in Blowing Rock for a client and just couldn’t pass up this photo. What an incredible John’s Gorge View from up there! Happy Monday, folks!

Beautiful Day at the Driving Range

It was a gorgeous day in Boone today with temperatures in the low 70′s.  On a day like this it’s impossible to resist the driving range so close to the office!  Here’s dad teeing off with the new 3 wood!  Hopefully we’ll be able to get on the golf course a little more this year.  Cheers!

Sharon’s Daffodils

The flowers at Sharon’s farm are emerging in full spring glory. Here’s a wave of daffodils. Last December I planted 1000 more which are just breaking ground. The forsythia are beginning to riot as we’ll. What a bounty this time of year is – especially after the winter we’ve endured. Sharon says to say those daffodils are named “Ice Follies.”
