It’s sometimes easy to forget just how lucky you are. The fires in California caused by arsonists (what were they thinking????) that set San Diego and surrounding areas ablaze makes me realize just how good mother nature is to us here in the mountains of North Carolina. Fires are more controlled by the mountains, tornadoes are not common because the mountains break up the winds, and hurricanes are rarely more than a rain storm by the time they make it to us. In fact, it must even reflect in our insurance rates because our clients and customers are always shocked to hear how low our rates are.
Our hearts and prayers go out to those in California who have lost your homes, businesses, and more. We even received notice one of our real estate mentors, Brian Buffini (Brian’s Website), lost his home as a result of the flames.
