It's BIG. And it Influences the Practice of Real Estate. L A N D !

The heart of a Land Specialist may be soft and determined all at once. If you spend enough time with the conversing on the LAND in ashevilleLand, there seems to be an ever-unfolding awareness of connections, or should I say the "interconnectedness" of what you find on the Land. Here in Asheville, at least, it seems that the interconnectedness puts things in perspective  in a flash.

The sense of belonging within the larger community of living things  that arrives as you set foot on The LAND, impacts you, and everything else in sight. The entire experience has an effect. It's BIG. And it trickles into your awareness and influences the practice of real estate. 

  • Land Specialists can tell you stories-

    stories about roaring streams, and the trees that, once bent by lightning, now reach from bank to bank providing a natural bridge for you to traverse-

    stories about old barns and the farmers who tended fields now overgrown with wild roses-

    stories that can  take you away from the limits of your  own mind. 

The camaraderie of real estate clients and professionals as they work together to make a dream come true is real and appreciated. (see photo from such a project I took yesterday)  It's a privilege to muster with the Land Masters (the guys in the photo) ...land planners and surveyors and appraisers and the hands-on experts who have walked the Land for many years and created sanctuaries before the one you're visiting now.   

It's a joy to see your clients eyes light up with a new kind of adventure. Kids, and dogs, and old REALTORS® alike are feeling that good party spirit. Change may be coming to the Land, but it comes with compassion, then. 

 Put all this together, and you can't avoid seeing the opportunity for sustainable practices  as much as is possible. So my question this morning is ...how long has it been since YOU sat with the Land?

Wow janeAnne -- you are planting seeds and growing dreams arent you!!! It is always wonderfully surprising to let oneself roam in wide open spaces and feel how it lifts your spirits!

I understand the land specialist. I am working on a project of moving the repair septic, well issues and more septic and repair fields. I could not do it with out the land specialist. It is amazing to me all the jobs out there that I did now about when I went to college.

Julianna,

How poetic. I once used a similar phrase when I was creating marketing materials for a builder.

You know, janeAnne--NC must be where the birth of land stewardship happens, because that's where I learned it, too--back in the late 70's when my dad was trying to organic farm, sell synthetic fuel and solar water heaters!  This planet is truly a system, and it's great to know those who are aware of it!

Sometimes I find myself insulated in my air conditioned office too much especially living in a beautiful place like Maui. I enjoy the times I am able to unplug and get in touch with nature on this island. Sometimes it is with clients trapsing around a beautiful parcel of land in this special place, sometimes it is on my own or with friends in family taking in the ocean, the smell of the earth or just a quiet place.

Thanks janeAnne, this is a nice reminder to take some time to acknowledge the natural world more often.

The thing that I enjoy so much is the "sculpting" aspect of thepreactice of real estate when it comes to all the dynamics of being a Land Specialist.

As you might imagine from the photo, my team and I get to be part of something much bigger than the transaction...it feels like ART!

You commented, " NC must be where the birth of land stewardship happens..."and I think you may be on to something!  Certainly in the Greater Asheville Area, stats show that more and more of our clients are demanding green-built/WNC HealthyBuilt homes and homes that are sited with consideration of the LAND...its rhythm and flow. . .

For me, and most of the Brokers at our Firm, trapsing about on the Land  is a wonderful bonus of our real estate practice ...and I''m smiling...out loud!
