I recently showed a nice couple around Charlottesville for a morning as they were contemplating relocating from New York City. Their words say a lot –
Our visit to Charlottesville on Saturday was incredibly informative, thanks to you. After much discussion, we agree that although Charlottesville city and Crozet are beautiful and have many attractions, in the end we didn’t have that ‘ah-ha’ moment that made us feel it could be our home.
However, you certainly have spoiled us for working with any other realtor! (We) agree that you are the most on-the-ball agent we’ve ever met. The 360 degree view you were able to give us on Charlottesville’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as the way you could really zero in on what mattered to us, was impressive. And I know it couldn’t have been easy to take time away from your family on the Saturday after Christmas, so thank you also for that. Even though we didn’t end up buying in Charlottesville, I hope that if you ever need us as a reference you won’t hesitate to ask.
Contrary to what the “Top 10” and “Best Places to Live” (and “Most Healthy” and “Bicycle Friendly”) lists say, Charlottesville isn’t for everyone. But I’ll welcome the opportunity try to earn your business if you’re looking in the area.
