A Sincere and Grateful “Thanks”

Love it or hate it, The Roanoke Times’ “Best of the NRV” list came out a couple of weeks ago. Thank you.  Thank you for thinking enough of me to vote. Thank you for entrusting me with your business, and referrals, these last eight years. And next year, let’s (1) get Nest Realty on that list of Best Real Estate Companies, and then (2) knock Mr. Mike off of his perch! 😉

Best of the New River Valley Series

  The Burgs’ 7th Annual Best of the NRV is out – have you voted for your favorites throughout the New River Valley? I’ve been fortunate enough to have been named as a finalist for this on several occasions – I even went so far as to participate in a series of videos highlighting the fact that on one occasion, I was the first loser (#2).  See?  And see?  There’s even an interview with a dog.  Weird. In the past, I’ve been a little hesitant to ask for votes.  But you know what?  Forget that.  Vote.  Vote often.  Mike’s a …

Thank You.

I’ve been hearing that Coldwell Banker Townside, Mike Eggleston and myself were all named in The Roanoke Times’  “Best Of” New River Valley real estate category, but I haven’t seen a copy yet.  It’s an honor to be named again, it truly is.  I haven’t been in the New River Valley long (10 years), and have only been in real estate for seven – to have this many people suggest I’m “one of the best” is humbling and, truthfully, a little unnerving.  You people have low standards! 🙂 Seriously, thank you for the recognition.  It’s an honor to have the opportunity …

I’m Thinking Of A Number Between One and Five

The votes are in … In 2009, yours truly was named the #2 real estate agent in the New River Valley.  As part of my 12-step plan to take over the world, I participated in a highly-organized, well-planned, subversive video campaign to knock Mike Eggleston from his #1 perch. And I failed.  That’s right – I actually got worse at my job, according to readers of The Roanoke Times.  See for yourself … it’s right there on Page 35. You all really know how to make a guy feel special. I kid.  While I hadn’t exactly planned to have a …

“Best of the New River Valley” series – Part 1

The Roanoke Times’ “Best of the New River Valley” contest is back, and voting has begun! You might remember – probably not, but let me remind you – that last year, you voted me the #2 real estate agent in the New River Valley.  You also voted another Coldwell Banker Townside agent, Mike Eggleston, the #1 real estate agent, AND voted our office the #1 real estate office – a clean sweep. In anticipation of even better things to come, Kelsey and the folks in our marketing department decided to step it up a notch this year, debuting a series …

If You Ain’t First, You Can Be Second

In the words of the poet Ricky Bobby, “If you ain’t first, you’re last“. But being named runner-up in The Roanoke Times’ “Best of the NRV” contest as the area’s best real estate agent isn’t so bad, either (see page 31).  I’ve just learned that I’ve been nominated as one of the New River Valley’s best real estate agents, behind Mr. Real Estate himself Mike Eggleston, and tied with Priscilla Morris.  Fantastic company, if you ask me.  Oh, and speaking of a fantastic company – Coldwell Banker Townside was named the number 1 real estate company in the New River …
