Asheville Relocation with a Nod to Nature

Asheville, North Carolina!  So many people want to be here. What for?

'll give ya' three quick reasons: asheville mountain neighborhood1)  Asheville is a center for Cultural Creatives so there is an abundance of art and music to enjoy. . And 2) we have amazing organic produce readily available as per this and other  tailgate markets   so there is incredible food to delight in-even organic menus at local restaurants.

AND 3) the Greater Asheville areas just happens to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. (note the photo I took overlooking a neighborhood nestled in the hands of the mountains here)

A particular interest to our eco-friendly clients is good information about relocating to these fair climes. In response, over the years we have gathered a ten-foot stack of resource materials having to do with RELO INFO and "making happy connections".

Here in Asheville, voted the "Happiest City in the U.S.A." collecting materials of this sort has been  a breeze . especially since our real estate practice centers on ECO-friendly  properties-energy efficient residences, Green Buildings, NC Healthy Built Homes in sustainable communities, and since we do tend to attract clients who love nature and want to be closer to the great out-of-doors.


With  "GREEN connections" readily in place, we can offer our clients pointers for quickly getting involved in any number of nature-related projects, and events like these: 

Sustainability Open Space - Montford Recreation Center, Asheville, A FREE self-organizing gathering for anyone engaged in the transformation to a thriving sustainable local culture and economy in harmony with the natural world.  For more information and to pre-register, go to

I always love reading your blogs! I need to get a green connections packet for my clients up here. Here in Boone and Blowing Rock, the movement is a little slow coming but there are definitely still green connections and resources to be had I just need to get out there and take the networking bull by the horns.

Coming here from Seattle years ago, I'll tell you what I like about the area.

People talk to one another.

If you are in a rush, you are in the wrong place.

It is considered rude to be in a rush (when it comes to conversation) here.

Seattle is such a beautiful place, don't get me wrong but Asheville and the surrounding areas have this kind of beauty and the beauty of her people, if you aren't in too much of a hurry to appreciate them.

Interesting you mention that time is something to consider when you relocate to the western NC mountains...and taking time to talk with one another. I like that. . .
