Family Ties, New ECO-Friendly Neighborhoods,& Relocation with a Nod to Nature

Because I am in Asheville,North Carolina and so many people want to be hasheville, nc  urban sustainable real estateere, a particular interest to me in my real estate practice is providing good information to my relocating clients.

From time to time, families new to the area, tell me they really miss the sense of belonging and family ties they had in their previous neighborhoods. For example, high school kids let me know that it’s not easy to feel uprooted  and to  leave their pals in another city. Parents agree. They want to deal with concerns about “the culture” at a new school before they relocate here. In response to these, and a myriad of clients’ concerns, 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!

 You should know that our real estate practice centers on ECO-friendly  properties—energy efficient residences, Green Buildings, NC Healthy Built Homes in sustainable communities, so here in the mountains, 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:

janeAnne, there is a lesson here for newbies: Even janeAnne got "0" comments way back when. Time cures all these oversights. So just hang in there.
