We are loving the new Ice House complex and all the excellent businesses it houses. We have to give a special shout-out to two of those businesses for coming up with what is possibly the best idea this year. Enjoy a morning jog, open air yoga/pilates, and a pint of beer for $10 once a month this summer!
We've got a fresh, simple, visually appealing market report infographic for you this month! Perhaps the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County real estate market is shifting slightly to a seller's market. Homes are spending less time on the market, selling at higher prices, and creating happy home sellers.
Tim Peters, Chief Operations Officer and Auctioneer at Cottonwood Auctions, and his techie friend, Andy Harbick, who has experience building software for companies like Amazon and Rosetta Stone -- both local Harrisonburg residents -- have developed the first-ever (genius, really) mobile bidding app. It's called BidWrangler, and it allows folks to bid on auction items from their smartphones.
Fellow coffee lovers, cast your eyes on a new artisan micro-roaster at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in downtown Elkton -- Blue Elk Coffee Company. Better yet, take a deep breath and imagine your senses being overcome as you breathe in the fresh aroma of just-roasted coffee. Are you in your happy place?
We are thrilled that our Downtown Office (home of the Wilson Downtown Gallery) will be housing the artwork of The Shenandoah Valley Watercolor Society during the months of May and June. Over a dozen artists will be displaying their works, making this a unique, varied, and must-see show.
