There's No Place Like Go!

There's no place like home.

In the small NC mountain community where I grew up it is common for folks to say, "ya'll come see me sometime".   What is neat about the mountains is that people actually take you up on that offer.  Growing up it was not uncommon for my grandparents to have several unexpected visitors at their house a day.  Each and everyone of these visitors were warmly welcomed.  Sunday was the busiest day of the week for visiting.  After a few hours or minutes of nice visit of catching up, visitors would say good bye.  The proper mountain good bye is, "why don't you all stay for supper"  followed by "come and see us again sometime."

By now you are probably now wondering what mountain customs have to do with Go Realty .  Today, after having yet another unexpected friend visit me at Go, it occurred to me that being here is just like being at home in the mountains.  We have done an outstanding job of making people feel welcome and free to stop by and say hello anytime.  This is another reason that Go is a very special place.  So for me, there is no place like Go!
