Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
Years ago, when my husband said we needed to move, real estate was down, way down. On our street alone, there were numerous for sale signs and homes that were going into foreclosure. This was a very desirable neighborhood but the real estate bubble had burst. Within weeks of deciding that we were going to sell, I had a buyer and a closing date. In fact, the interested party contacted us while we were visiting our new city. I have learned a lot since my first sale, but it still remains a business of connecting with people and those connections make sales.
