Springsteen at the Apollo

Posted by

My wife Kathy and I were fortunate to procure tickets to the private Apollo Theater concert by Springsteen and the E Street Band, kicking off their current tour.   With only about 1200 people in attendance, and with seats on the 11th row, it was an experience very different from a concert in a big venue, and not likely to be repeated.   With celebrities from many fields all around us, and with SiriusXM radio hosting cocktails before and an after party at the Red Rooster, Harlem’s trendy restaurant, afterwards, it would be hard to imagine a better evening for any Springsteen fan.

We also attended the Greensboro concert, as did Martie Davy, one of Landfall Realty’s sales professionals, also a great experience, just not the incredible intimacy of the Apollo.  Martie just flew to Philadelphia to the concert there this week, I hope she will blog a review.

As you can see, those of us involved with Landfall Realty carry our interests far and wide.  If anyone reading this was at the Apollo, let me know.

What a Start!

Posted by

Landfall Realty has seen record numbers of sales for the January/February period, with 18 transactions closed or pending.  This exceeds the 2005 totals!  With sales traffic still healthy, and the traditional sales season just beginning, confidence is growing that 2012 will be a far better year than 2011, which was itself a far better year than 2010.

We also are pleased to see some new spec homes being built in Landfall.  LFR has already listed two new homes that have sold, and we are working with builders on several more about to be put under construction.  We have also paired several home site buyers with builders, evidence that the custom home construction business is also improving.

It has been a long time coming, but better times are finally here.  As a completed and essentially debt free community, we have long known that Landfall is perfectly positioned for a rebounding market.  Buyers are now confirming that belief.

Wilmington and the Cost of Living

A recent study from Chapel Hill examined the 25 largest cities in North Carolina to determine which community gave its tax payers the best value for the monies paid to their town in taxes, utilities and service fees.  Wilmington, NC was determined to be the best value of any city in the State.  This is likely one of the many reasons that Landfall, in Wilmington, remains one of the most desirable retirement destinations in the Carolina’s, and has been for more than 20 years.
