Get to Know Sandy
What is your favorite thing about the Cashiers area?
My favorite thing about the Cashiers area is the Village Green. When my grandchildren were younger and visiting us, a highlight was always to go to the playground at the Green. I learned at that time that volunteers not only paid for it, they built it! That whole effort was amazing. In addition, as a resident I feel great pride that we have more than 12 acres right in the middle of our little village preserved for visitors and residents to enjoy as a park.
“It is a privilege to write about our experiences of selling our beautiful home in Cashiers with McKee Properties as our Broker.
We met with our children to see if they could come one or more times a year and help us assess what items needed maintenance and even join us in getting the projects completed. We had been unable to obtain dependable help to assume these roles in our absence. This discussion led to a recommendation to sell the property.
Husband Al made the initial call to John Barrow. A follow-up meeting was held with John and Sandy and the team began its task. Communications were an A+. The written communications were written with the English teacher in mind and the photography and use of color and texture of paper made it a coffee table edition.
Now it was the magical team of Sandy and John — SOLD!! There were general drop-ins. One was a drop-in for all the female brokers for a sit-down formal dinner which Sandy cooked and McKee Properties provided the French wine.
We live three hours from Cashiers. We typically come every other week to clean, cut grass and water plants. Since both of us are experiencing health issues, we notified them when we were not being able to come to Cashiers. They watered all the plants for us.
I could continue with so many other things they did for us to make this such a memorable experience. When they walk through the door, they are greeted with “Come in Friends.”
Congratulations on having such Special people on your team.
With grateful hearts,”
—Evelyn & Al B.
