High Rock Lake is one of the largest lakes in North Carolina second only to Lake Norman. The lake is about 15,180 acres and 365 miles of shoreline. High Rock is a eutrophic lake with lots of nutrients being delivered from the Yakdin River and other tributaries. These nutrients support lots of living things. Fish are abundant and […]

Fosters Point, High Rock Lake

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

High Rock Lake is one of the best parts of Davidson County (aside from the excellent BBQ, people, and sense of community). So I can understand why folks at Foster's Point are a little upset that they may lose their sites. Rumor has it that the campground may be selling out and the potential buyers […]

North Carolina Association of Realtors

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

I have been in Myrtle Beach, SC for the North Carolina Association of Realtors (and the funny part is the South Carolina Association of Realtors meets later this week in Asheville, NC!). It is a great learning experience and a way to stay plugged in with the other Realtors. The convention has been pretty good, […]

Live in Davie County, weekend at the beach or the mountains!

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

 Davie County is a great place to live for many reasons. However, one of the best is that it is close to many big cities like Winston Salem, Salisbury, and Statesville. Also a little farther are Greensboro, High Point, and Charolette. So even if you must work in the city, you can still have that […]

Searching for Davie County Real Estate?

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

If you are searching for Davie County real estate then you need an inside connection. As a previous resident of Davie County we know the area very well and can provide excellent advice about the area. Kristen still lives in Davie County and is very active in the community. I on the other hand was […]

High Rock Lake Levels

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

High Rock Lake water levels are really dipping!! Many boats and piers are on the ground with no signs of water levels coming up. There is some mention of possible rain this weekend, but it really needs to be a lot in order raise these water levels. With High Rock being down about 7 feet […]

Davie County Schools

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

Davie County Schools are known for being some of the best around. As Kristen and I were both former school teachers we can attest for that. Davie only has one high school currently and it is quickly becoming crowded. The big debate is: should they build another high school and have 2 or if one […]

Mocksville, The County Seat

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

Mocksville, NC in the words of a storyteller I know is " just a hair past nowhere." Though Davie County is growing by leaps and bounds it still has that small town feel. Most of the time when you say "Mocksville" most folks respond by saying something like "Oh I like Tennessee!" Mocksville however, is […]
