Sold!

Sometimes I wish the whole "SOLD!" aspect of real estate could mimic an auctioneer with a cash register bell in the background. Despite the lack of an officiate to bellow throughout the office when we have closings, we still like to brag about our agents and how well they perform. Along with boasting throughout our social networks such as facebook and google +, I figured I would dedicate a post here on our blog as well. 

We are proud of our agents and the tireless hours they contribute to close a sale. There are many trying and frustrating days, and everyone has that "one" client that makes you want to bang your head against a wall. But through it all, they keep it together and remember that their clients want to buy or to sell their home as much as they do! In the end, it all works out. I think that our five closings this week are substantial proof that hard work pays off. Keep it up!

High Country Living

There are many aspects about living in the mountains that various people would say they prefer over others. But I think anyone who lives here can agree that there is a strong, revitalizing energy that courses through the Appalachian region like blood pulsating through our veins. It is the reason so many who were born here return at some point in their lives. Even those who don't have the great fortune of calling our mountains home often tell stories of fond memories from their childhood. Maybe it's a story of their granny burying a root vegetable in a paper bag to get your warts to go away, or an evening on the porch playing and dancing to the unique folk music that sings through our hills. It could be about an uncle who sold shine from his homemade still in the holler. Whether it's mountain folk remedies, banjo picking or our ever famous moonshine, everyone has a past or an experience rooted in our beloved region. 

Specific to the High Country, some of us get to boast driving on parts of the infamous Blue Ridge Parkway as our daily commute. Our seasons are full and we can promise that the temperature in our mountains will always be about 10 degrees cooler than the surrounding towns. Summer evenings may require a light sweatshirt and although the winters can be bitter cold, we have beautiful mountain snow and the homes that we sell here at Century 21, they're warm. Every October, right around the 3rd week, people travel from all over the world to experience the foliage that sets in with the autumn harvest. Our life here in the High Country is like nothing you will ever experience anywhere else in the world. It's unique to the Appalachian Mountains and here in the High Country, it's a great place to not only live, but to invest. Invest your money, invest your time, invest your love, invest your life. When it comes to mountain living I believe that Henry David Thoreau said it best:

"I went for a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees"
