Welcome to the blog! This site is an ever-changing for discussing one of my passions, real estate in the New River Valley of Virginia. Thank you for landing here – I hope that, should you decide to hang out or come back from time to time, that you’ll find the information here helpful and engaging.
My name is Jeremy Hart. I’m a licensed real estate agent at Nest Realty Group in
Blacksburg, Virginia, and founding member of NRVLiving Real Estate. If you’re interested, my license number is #0225077937, and I’ve been a licensee in good standing of the New River Valley Association, the Virginia Association, and the National Association of Realtors since January 2004. You can contact me at jeremy at nrvliving dot com. Personally, I’m a transplant to the area and couldn’t be happier. I love this area – we have national forests, beautiful vistas, and incredible sunsets – and enjoy getting out to explore, attending all kinds of events at the university and the surrounding area, and of course Hokie athletics. There’s so much to do here, and you really do get the best of small town living combined with internationally renowned artists, musicians, and cultural activities. I love to play volleyball, and have in the past few years discovered that snowboarding is another aspect of adventure that I can’t seem to get enough of. Find out even more on Zillow.
I started writing this blog in 2006 as a way to provide conversation, both online and off, regarding what was happening in the real estate market of the New River Valley. I was finding that our market was unique in many ways to the rest of the country, and felt that as a smaller area the nuances of what happened here were getting lost in the noise of real estate from around the country. We’re surrounded by not one but two world-class universities, major research facilities, world-renowned technology firms, as well as locally owned and operated retail, wineries and boutiques, to name a few … all surrounded by the majestic beauty that is the Blue Ridge Mountains. To say we’re unique is an understatement, and I wanted to use the blog to highlight some of those differences.
Please feel free to read quietly, or join in on the conversation if you’d like. Comments are never edited, but I AM the son of a school teacher and sometimes the need to run spell check just gets to be too great for me. All I ask is that you please refrain from using foul language in comments, or spamming us with ads for your service, and we’ll get along just fine. I don’t care if you disagree with me – in fact in some ways I encourage it, it makes me a better agent to have to defend or reexamine how I look at something – just don’t do it in a way you wouldn’t want your Grandma to hear.
I’m just a real estate agent and while I’m one piece of the puzzle, don’t forget to consult your attorney, tax professional and librarian before making a financial or real estate decision.
