She’s a beautiful dog but selective about whom she loves!

We Sold Frank’s Home in 37 days!

Another Home in Boone NC Sold Fast!

Frank asked me last month if we could help him sell his home.  After looking at the house and seeing how close it is to Appalachian State University’s campus I knew this little home would sell in no time.  We got to work writing it up, taking photographs of its nice yard, pleasant views and all of its distinctive strengths.  Then we told you about it and – presto – it was exactly what one of you was looking for for his ASU Student son.  It is a pleasure working in this profession where you get to serve your friends, neighbors and those making the momentous and life-changing decision to choose the high country for their residence.  I love this area so much!  I was born to introduce people to the high country.

Last Night Overlooking Blowing Rock & Grandfather Mountain...

The skies are so immeasurably beautiful in winter in the high country.  Last night my son Matt and I were returning from showing a client a tract of land and noticed the gorgeous sunset forming up so we stopped to record this moment.  The beauty of the high country in winter is in large part the sky and clouds.  With a weak slanting sun we often have these layered skies that float in a play with the January light.  It just bathes you in mood – in a good and very exotic way – so unlike the endlessly dreary skies I grew up with in the midwest.  And when the sun breaks through as it inevitably does it’s like biblical scene with beams you can almost touch.  There’s truly magic in the Blue Ridge Mountain air!
