Various and charmingly interwoven cultural threads make up the communities in which we offer our expertise as REALTORS®. As real estate professionals we are in the lucky position to be part of the design team for the future in such communities.Here's an example: Our small college town, Mars Hill , N.C. can only grow so much before it ceases to be a town and becomes a small city.
Our small city, Asheville, N.C. can only grow so much until it becomes a large city. And so we come to a place that requires consideration.
If a community likes its "small town feeling" then the community needs to acknowledge that growth must stop at some point in order to preserve that feeling.
What choices are available?
Asheville,North Carolina, seen in the photo I took just above here, recently designed our "Smart Growth" Plan. "
"Smart Growth is a proposed City of Asheville development pattern that makes efficient use of our limited land, fully utilizes our urban services and infrastructure, promotes a wide variety of transportation and housing options, absorbs and effectively serves a significant portion of the future population growth of Buncombe County and Western North Carolina, protects the architectural and environmental character of the City through compatible, high quality, and environmentally-sensitive development practices...."
A "smart" REALTOR® tunes-in to such indicators as the "Smart Growth Plan"....
- We keep an eye out in our communities to see what change, if any, is occuring.
- We create opportunities not only for ourselves as real estate professionals, but for our clients as well.
- Our business plans take into account a the eco-friendly trends that makes sense for the future.
So folks,tonight I am writing about what value REALTORS® can add through the very quality of our practice. Seems to me, and maybe you will agree, that it's not just about completing a successful transaction. "Charmingly interwoven" relationships of quality count in the Big Picture.
In a broader perspective, REALTORS® get to weave energy into making the places in which we live better for all of us. For sure, there always will be floods and tornadoes. Some of us will succeed and some will have to pick ourselves up and start again, some will suffer, some will prosper. As Earth Wind and Fireput is "That's the way of the world. " But tonight, I'm feeling optimistic about positive futures for all concerned. How about you?
