Selling a Short Sale in Bedford

The difference between a short sale or a foreclosure on your credit could impact you and your family for many years. If your home goes to foreclosure you will have a hard time buying a new home, renting, purchasing an car, or getting credit for any purchase.

Negotiating a short sale can be very difficult and timely, there are many factors to consider including getting the right price, how the bank reposts your account, and potential taxes after the sale. You need an agent who understand the process and can help you all along the way. If your a seller, what are the implications of a short sale for you long term? We can help.

Breweries near Bedford VA. Tour and tastings

Breweries Near Bedford VA. Tour and tastings!

Last weekend a group of friends and I jumped into the car and drove from Bedford Va to Wicar crash with car and motorcyclentergreen VA to visit a couple of breweries. usually we visit are wineries but today we wanted something different.
Wintergreen is a short drive from Bedford VA, only about an hour and half, of driving with fantastic pastoral and mountain views. As we approached Blue Mountain Brewery, we spotted the most unusual car accident (if someone had been injured I wouldn’t post the picture).

Cheese and meat platter

Blue Mountain Brewery had a great selection of beers and we ordered the sampler of their beers. The building was great, nicely decorated with a small lounge area with sofas to relax and have a cold beer. There was also patio seating and a great menu for food.

We choose the cheese plate to eat with our beer, there was a mix of fresh fruit, bread, and unusual cheeses that were amazing. One of the cheese was a mustard cheese, never had it before but really enjoyed it.

Blue Mountain’s beer was great. It was a nice mix of different styles but I have to admit it was excellent and pared nicely with the Rockfish Wheat Summer Weiss Beer on a hot day.

Beer Sampling at Devils Backbone brewery

Beer samples

Next, we traveled to Devils Backbone Brewing Company in Roseland VA. Wow, what a place. The building alone wasvery impressive, a stone and wooden structure. Equally impressive was the beer which is produced on-site! We ordered the 10 beer sampler and were delighted with the choice of beer offered by the brewery. I enjoy Hefeweizen and the Wintergreen Weiss (a Bavarian-style Hefeweizen) was much to my liking.

After finishing our sampling, we were escorted to our table table on the patio, where we had a great view of the mountains at sunset and the man-made koi pond.  The food selection is comfort gourmet food.

Fish Tacos at Devils Backbone

Fish Tacos!

A great mix of high quality and comfort. Everything looked great and inviting. Several members of our party got the fish tacos, some got the Veggie Burger, I opted for the meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes. Based upon the lack of conversation while eating, I would say everyone enjoyed their food.

What a great night we had! This week I also learned a new brewery is being built in the same area. So now we will have three to choose from and I haven’t even mentioned the wineries in the area.

The ghost of Edgar Allen Poe appears at Avenel in Bedford VA

The ghost of Edgar Allen Poe appears at Avenel in Bedford VA

Last night, the Ghost of Edgar Allen Poe revised Historic Avenel in Bedford VA.  To retell some of his famous stories. We learned more about the life of Poe and his exploits. But more importantly we learned of Poe’s ties to Bedford VA. Historic Avenel was built by William M. Burwell a classmate of Mr. Poe’s at the University of Virginia. While it is known Gen Robert E. Lee visited and stayed in Avenel, it was suggested that Mr. Poe (a resident of Richmond, VA) also visited Historic Avenel in Bedford VA.

The Ghost of Poe was played by Mr. Glen Ayers, a retired English Literature teacher of Stanton River High School in Bedford County. He gave a very dramatic and impressive performance. From the stairs near the portico entrance of Historic Avenel, Mr Ayers told us the story Poe’s life. Weaving Avenel into the story and then proceeding to recite “The Raven” insinuating Lenora (a pseudonym for Poe’s first wife Virginia) is the ghost known as the “white lady” who haunts Avenel.

The well attended event was a fund raiser for Historic Avenel in Bedford VA, where many educational and historical events are held each year in addition to weddings and receptions.

What Does it Mean to be a Team Member?

I read Ricki’s blog, and thought maybe I could provide an additional point of insight on this topic.

I have played sports all my life. I love them and continue even today. I grew up playing football and now play hockey and softball. I have been captain for several teams, having to make decisions on who plays where and when. One lesson I have learned is to know your position/roll on the team. Be realistic on what you bring to the team and how you best enhance the team. When I first started playing hockey, I knew I wasn’t as good as some of the other players. I didn’t score much and even ad some problems keeping up with the faster skaters. I made a realistic evaluation of my skills and created a plan for 1) How to improve 2) how to best help the team at that time

Within a couple of seasons I was centering the top line (in hockey forwards who play together are called a line) for my team and leading the league in assists and scoring a goal every other game. But more importantly, the team was doing very well. We played in the league championship 4 years in a row winning 2 times.

How does this pertain to real estate? If you are a buyers agent, then be the best buyers agent you can be! If you have a gift or a passion for a portion of your business, then bring it! My partner is great at networking in person. She can go to a party and get business. I am better at getting our clients web exposure. That doesn’t mean I don’t network. It just means we understand our roles and try to maximize them. If you make great flyers, know web design, are great with certain types of clients, what ever the skill use it for the good of the team and recognize the talents of the rest of the team.

REAL ESTATE IS A TEAM SPORT real estate is a team sport Real Estate is a Team Sport

I grew up playing basketball in school.  I was a post forward most of
the time during junior high and high school.  I learned at an early age
even in grade school what it meant to be a team member.
I think sports played a big part in my life and is helping me even
today in my business because I learned this valuable lesson.

Maybe one reason some people excel in business is because they have learned valuable lessons from Team Sports.   Real Estate is a team sport.

A Team Member will play for the team to win not just to win for themselves.

The Team will be placed in the Top Priority not the individual.                                      The ball is in your hand, now what?

The Team wins as a whole, not the individual.

The Team loses as a whole, not the individual.

The Team supports its members and is only as strong as the weakest member.

The Team Member will step into the gap for another member.  The Team Member
will do what they have to do to make the team look good.  It’s all
about the Team, not the individual; but in the end, the individuals are
recognized even more highly than they ever could have been individually
because there is strength in numbers and the whole is always greater than the sum of all its parts.

This is what it means to be a Team MemberIt means to Win!

The Little Town Players in Bedford VA

The Little Town Players Summer Theater in Bedford VA

Little town players in Bedford VA

Image from 2009

Tonight July 16 pm is the first performance of this years summer camp Little Town players performed in the Elks Home theater in Bedford VA. They also perform tomorrow at 7pm.

What is the Little Town Players Summer Theater?
Each year, the Little Town Players offer a summer theater camp for Bedford children. This is not your usual camp, they really teach these kids how to act and perform. Furthermore, the kids help build the sets and pick out costumes. Based upon the kids, a custom script is written. Last years script was hilarious and I am willing to bet this year will be even better.
The children are divided into two groups based upon age. The younger group performs first and this years play is called “The Pirate Princess”, the older kids will be performing “Pirates, Pixies, a Parrot, and the Family Reunion“.

Hope to see you there!
