America Is Beautiful
My wife and I decided that we needed to visit all our Realtors and Brokers along the Eastern Seaboard. While we’re a Virtual Real Estate Brokerage and the leading Virtual Real Estate Brokerage in the country, we have found that our Realtors and Brokers welcome and endorse occasional meetings, because they are not mandatory meetings.
Therefore, my wife and I left on April 29th of 2011 on an 18 day road trip to visit all our wonderful Realtors and Brokers in North Carolina, Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
What I discovered on this drive is why our country is such a wonderful place to live, raise kids and prosper.
America is Beautiful.
We spent our first night in St Augustine, our countries very first town. The history is phenomenal, but the fountain of Youth didn’t help me out - I’m still old! Next up was Charlestown, one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen. If you ever get a chance visit Charlestown, it is just stunning.
During this entire drive the scenerery was spectacular.
Next was North Carolina. This is where we became overwhelmed with the beauty of the trees and the size of the trees. From there we drove onto Richmond, Virginia. In Richmond I got to meet my new Granddaughter named Allison. I also had a problem with my GPS so I had to go by the dealership and it wound me through the most beautiful homes I think I have ever seen.
From there we made our way to Washington D.C. and the Maryland area. If you have never seen our capital, it is a must. Washington D.C. is a beautiful city and as everyone knows the sights of the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, as well as the Capital and the White House and all the museums are a sight to behold.
Then it was on to New York City for Mothers Day. We stayed right in Times Square and went to see Chicago, starring Christy Brinkley for Mother’s Day. I think there are more people at any given moment in Times Square than there is in my entire home town.
Then there was New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I shared the same Hotel as Donald Trump that morning for meetings. I must be important since the two meetings that morning was my meeting and Donald Trump’s meeting. (Neither one of us are running for President)
The trip home was a very pleasant experience since we decided to head west and drive down the Application Trail
The Quaker country was a bit different in that we had to drive through the city of Intercourse to get to Paradise. This is a true story! Those are the names of the towns, and in all places Quaker Country.
We stayed in several little towns on the way back. My favorite was Lenox, Massachusetts. Then there were the names that stuck out like Fancy Gap, West Virginia.
What I came away with is the America is Beautiful and almost all Americans love America and our way of life.
