Like everyone else who lives in Kentucky, I am proud to be a part of our local and regional community. The business community and social community. I am proud of our local schools who raise the bar and invest in the next generations. I am proud of the local churches and non profits that work together to care for those less fortunate. I am proud of the local businesses that budget each year to contribute to educational and social programs that benefit everyone. I am proud of the heritage of growing up in Appalachia, where family means something, and helping your neighbor is a way of life, not just a slogan.
For me, being a Realtor is about more than just selling houses, it's about marketing my community to people looking at moving and settling in here. Serving my friends and neighbors as well as they purchase and sell their largest asset and investment. I firmly believe that without community members supporting each other, I am out of a job that I love, and would be looking for a new line of work. Without community, there would be many who could not succeed in business, education, family and life.
On this blog, you will read from time to time about happenings and successes of our local community, our schools, students, leaders and people that make this a tremendous place to live, work, worship and play. If you are from another town, county or state, let me invite you to take a peek and check out Southeast and Central Kentucky, and be the first to say WELCOME! If you are a "local", then I challenge you to rediscover the beauty and excitement that is in your back yard, and find ways to invest in and engage this wonderful place that we call home!
