Late summer is a great time to eat outside and enjoy the views...and what better place to do that than on a rooftop downtown! Jimmy Madison's has recently opened up a rooftop dining and bar area atop the Free Clinic. I had the opportunity to meet the general manager, Scott Stephens, and he showed me around their beautiful newly renovated space - with great views of the courthouse and downtown.

We are eagerly awaiting the opening of Gray Jay Provisions - a new artisan sandwich shop and market opening this Fall on South High Street. Soula Pefkaros, head of all things marketing, shared with us some of her passion and gave us more details on this exciting new venture coming to Harrisonburg!
We have new artists in our gallery space for August and September! Pamela Tittle and the artists from the Valley Art Project have created a show around the theme of eyes - from human to animal, Mickey Mouse to Harry Potter. Come join us for the First Fridays Art Opening August 4th from 5pm-8pm at the Wilson Downtown Gallery! There will be light refreshments, live music, and face painting!
You're sitting cool and calm in the air conditioning, perhaps enjoying a nice cold glass of lemonade or sweet tea on ice. You decide to head outside and soak in some sunshine, but as soon as you open the door, a wall of heat knocks you off your feet. It's hot outside, and your home is working overtime, so we suggest taking care of a few things that will give your house a little respite. Bonus: there are only a couple of things to do outdoors, so you can accomplish these Summer Home Maintenance tasks without too much of a sweat!
The spring real estate season in our local Harrisonburg and Rockingham County market did not disappoint. We're starting to see contracts turn into sales, prices rise, and days on market drop. And although new listings continue to fall slightly, we're confident that 2017 will continue to show healthy numbers throughout the summer. Take a closer look at our June 2017 Market Report!
