Selling Homes in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia
Selling homes in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia is a blast. There are never two days in a row that are the same, and just about the time you think you’ve seen it all, something comes along that amazes you. The homes you sell can be in subdivisions surrounded by other homes and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, or they can be in the mountains, by the river, on a large lake, or wherever they are, they are often exciting to view. The scenery is beautiful and the friends you make along the way are often four-footed.
On a recent home inspection, I came across a beautiful valley scene with a rainbow popping up above the mountains. It was so peaceful and relaxing that I found myself sitting on the front porch just taking in the environment. A red fox ran across the driveway as I sat their watching. He was on an undisclosed mission, and I watched him until the brush hid his intentions from view.
After a recent closing, I was talking to my clients when a bear ran across our path in downtown Winchester, VA. Selling homes in the Shenandoah Valley, VA is always interesting. The night before the bear incident, I saw another much larger bear after a showing. It is never a dull moment around this area.
Shortly after, I dropped by a farmette to take care of a home inspection and I was immediately adopted by a very pregnant goat. I made the mistake of rubbing her neck. At first, it was a little rubbing between the fence boards, and then it was a little more above the top fence board, and then it was full upper body above the fence. I thought I was going to have to take her home with me.
A few days later, I dropped by a past client’s home to catch up with them, and their bird decided I might be a good best friend. He posed, whistled and performed for me. It was very entertaining. He was a beautiful emerald color. When he lifted his wings, the inside of his wings were a stunning red. I wish I could have gotten a photo with his wings open because it made his beauty even more intense.
On a showing a few days later, a homeowner had placed her two dogs in a laundry room without any warning. I opened the door to share the room with my buyers and there they were. They immediately decided that we should be friends, and they followed us around throughout the showing. I had to stop and love on one of them for a while before leaving. He was more than happy that he had company while his family was out.
