As an experienced Hampton Roads Realtor that has helped hundreds of families find their perfect home, I know there are many factors to consider. Granted, location, price and feature requirements are top priorities. However, the surrounding neighborhood can be just as important when it comes to choosing a favorite house to call home.
Recently, my team hosted an evening pre Thanksgiving pie tasting open house at our listing in Wolftrap Estates. Made up of less than 50 homes, this quiet York Co. community has always been popular. Rather than assuming that a few curious neighbors would stop by, I personally invited each of them. As I walked around and handed out invites, I was greeted with genuine friendliness and neighbors confirming they would attend. I happened upon several neighbors walking and talking with each other as school -aged kids ran ahead of them. Many of those same neighbors walked to each others' homes and continued to visit. Several neighbors and their dogs met up and walked around the block together. Instead of ignoring me or looking at me suspiciously as I approached, I was greeted with reciprocated smiles and waves. By the time I was finished, my mind was made up. Wolftrap Estates needed to be featured in our Community Spotlight blog.
