Significant Sale | Katrina Pulliam, Associate Broker

Meet Katrina Pulliam, Associate Broker with the Welcome Home Realty Group… She believes her clients deserve an agent who always has their best interest at heart and Katrina works with the utmost integrity in order to do so. Katrina’s clients know that she is about them, will put in the work to get the transaction done professionally, that they will be in the home of their dreams, and get the highest market value for their home.

 

Recently we received a letter of commendation from a seller that had an extraordinary experience with Katrina. We would love to share from both the seller and Katrina herself regarding the sale of this gorgeous and elegant Toano home.

 

 

“I recently had the pleasure of working with one of your agents/brokers, Ms. Katrina Pulliam, in the sale of my house in Toano and the purchase of another home in Kiln Creek. Please see the attached letter of commendation that I felt compelled to write after a very positive experience!  I have worked with other real estate agents in the past who seemed to care only about concluding a sale as quickly as possible to make their commission and add to their sales record.  Nothing could be further from the experience that I had with Ms. Pulliam!  She made me feel like she was truly representing me and my interests, and that she cared about my objectives!!” – Christine Belcastro, Ph.D.

 

We interviewed Katrina regarding the sale of this Stonehouse home and here is what she had to say.

 

Q1. What was your favorite part of the home?

My favorite part of this home was the gourmet kitchen and the outdoor balcony and patio, very quaint.

 

Q2. What was the most difficult part of selling the home and how did you overcome it?

The most difficult part was that the homeowner shared a well with a neighbor that supplied the sprinkler system for both properties and they did not have an agreement in place, so we put together an agreement that satisfied the new owner and the neighbor.

 

Q3. What’s your favorite thing in the area?

Photo From Google

My favorite thing about the neighborhood is the Saudé Creek Vineyards and Gauthier Vineyard are close. The neighborhood Stonehouse is a golf course community, has a restaurant on site The Virginia Grill, and how centrally located between Williamsburg and Richmond this community is.

 

Q4. What’s your favorite part about being a REALTOR®?

My favorite part about being a realtor is knowing that I have the ability to help people accomplish their goals in the housing arena.

Preparing for St. Patrick’s Day in Hampton Roads

Preparing for St. Patrick’s Day in Hampton Roads

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow! If you haven’t started preparing or looking for things to do in Hampton Roads this weekend, check out the full blog post. We hope it makes your life a little easier… and more festive!

 

THE HISTORY

“March 17 commemorates the patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (who, interestingly, wasn’t Irish). It also honors Irish culture by encouraging folks to wear Ireland’s colors (green, white and orange), listen to Irish music and feast on traditional Irish meals. It’s also a day filled with parades and special events, usually with friends and family, where lots of photos are being taken.”

Hampton Roads is a very family-centric region, where many small businesses and venues host events that are totally kid-friendly. If you are looking to take the family out for some festivities, here is a list of events from myactivechild.com. Enjoy, be safe, and honor Irish culture with your little ones!

 

ACTIVITIES FOR ADULTS

We didn’t forget about you adults! The 757 is home to many festivities for almost any holiday you could imagine, including St. Patrick’s Day. We pulled the list of bar crawls and other events local to you. From the Shack to Blue Pete’s Restaurant, to Waterside District – the options are endless! CLICK HERE to search all local events.

 

FOOD & DRINK INSPIRATION

“St. Patrick’s Day is finally here — which means it’s time to cook up a delicious Irish feast! Sure, any green food can pass as festive on March 17, but how could a St. Paddy’s celebration be complete without some tasty Irish-inspired meals? Luckily, if you’re craving a taste of the Emerald Isle, these St. Patrick’s Day food ideas are as satisfying as they are festive — and best of all, they might just bring you the luck of the Irish.”
