Wayne Cofer Helped us Find the Perfect Home

We found out about The Poltrock Team while searching properties on the Internet. After Wayne Cofer called about one of our inquiries, we decided to work with the team. During our real estate transaction, Wayne Cofer’s services were most helpful. We spent several days with him, and his guidance and questions made us really “think.” We feel that Wayne is a true asset! We are very pleased to have found the perfect home, in the perfect location!

Also, The Poltrock Team’s business relationships with attorneys and insurance companies definitely made the legal end of our purchase seem flawless. Overall, we rate the level of service received as a “10.” We would absolutely work with The Poltrock Team again.

The Poltrock Team is the Real Estate Team to Call in Murphy, NC

We found out about The Poltrock Team through a Craigslist ad. After Wayne’s return call, we learned that the home was sold. Then, Wayne asked me, “What would you like in a home?” I gave him a list of interests I want in a home, and three days later he forwarded four specs with pictures to follow. We then decided to work with The Poltrock Team. The team put forth an excellent effort to help us find and purchase our house.

During our real estate transaction, The Poltrock Team was most helpful in providing knowledge on the home inspection, termites, etc. Wayne talked to me like I was a family member, being honest and downright informative. He helped us with our mortgage questions, as well as information he had from being in Murphy.

Overall, we are 100% satisfied with our real estate experience with The Poltrock Team. We are very happy with Wayne, and we would definitely recommend him to friends. We are also very pleased with the team’s professionalism, and we rate the level of service received as a “10.” We would absolutely work with The Poltrock Team again.

First Class Service

John Poltrock and his team at ReMax in Murphy, NC were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They kept us constantly informed on their efforts to sell our vacation house. Within only three months after listing with John, we signed a contract to sell.

After signing the contract, there were several things that needed to be done to the house to meet the seller’s requirements. Because we live hundreds of miles away, this could have been difficult for us. However, The Poltrock Team completely relieved us of that burden. Whatever needed to be done – they did, cheerfully and efficiently.

Here is the best example of that. After we closed on the sale in Murphy, we were driving back to our home in Florida. While underway, we called Dish Network to discontinue our service. We found out that we were required to box up the TV receiver and other components, and ship them back to Dish.

However, we were well away from Murphy, and the new owners were already moving in. It could have posed a serious dilemma for us, but it was no problem for John. We called John, and informed him of the situation. Remember, we had already closed on the house, and John’s formal responsibilities could have ended there.

But John is not that kind of person. He quickly said “Have them (Dish) send the return box to me, and I will box things up and send them back.” Another problem solved quickly, cheerfully, and efficiently.

Thank you, John, and your staff!

Pray Forest Fires End in Western North Carolina

It’s hard to believe Western North Carolina is experiencing so many wild fires. As you drive through Murphy, the smoke is so thick, its hard to see in some places. Although there are no fires in Cherokee County NC (and I hope we have none), the area is experiencing a 100+ year drought. I spoke with my mother-in-law and she does not recall it ever being so dry in our beautiful mountains.

I went to Hayesville NC on Veterans Day and had the privilege of watching so many incredible folks try to put out the fires that our plaguing our area. I literally saw a dozen helicopters fly to refill and drop water on raging fires over and over and over again. There are so many heroes who have fought these fires and saved so many homes. I saw smoke that was 100 yards from a home and I can’t imagine the fear and concern some people have for their dreams.

Please keep your prayers up: both for rain and for the brave men and women working so hard to eliminate the fires.

Easy Tips for Winterizing Your Mountain Garden

Buttoning up your Murphy, NC garden during the fall is like cleaning up after Thanksgiving dinner. On Turkey Day, you just feasted on a tasty 20-pounder with all the fixin’s – and now you must clear the table before scraping and washing the dishes. And when fall catches up with your garden,  stop growing your vegetables or flowers, and begin that less-enjoyable cleanup operation.

Pick Your Passion: Vegetables or Flowers
When your garden’s harvest came in, you enjoyed a huge bounty of vegetables from early summer until fall. When you exhausted your recipes, you canned or froze every ripe vegetable that crossed your path.

Or, maybe flower gardening is your passion. You carefully prepared your beds, planted seeds and transplants, and watered them daily throughout our bone-dry drought. You weeded often, and you managed to drive off the deer so your plants would have a fighting chance. Finally, your garden exploded with a riot of colors that made all that hard work worthwhile.

Now that the growing season’s over, though, it’s time to round up those wilting plants and restore some order to your vegetable plot or flower beds. After all, you want to get a head start on next season’s garden.

Wrap Up Your Summer Garden
First, encourage your current garden to keep on giving. If you grew some tasty heirloom vegetables, for example, save and store a good assortment of seeds for the next planting season. Try the same strategy with your colorful annual flowers. Either way, store the seeds in paper envelopes, and stash them in a glass jar in a dry spot indoors.

Next, tidy up the garden by picking up fallen vegetables that could rot on the ground. Dispose of dead annuals, and cut back perennials that have finished blooming for the season. By reducing the amount of debris on the ground, pests will be less likely to choose your garden for their winter hibernation spot.

Put Those Millions of Leaves to Work
Of course, living in the woods means you have an endless supply of leaves, a highly beneficial ingredient of your household compost pile. Rake (or blow) a respectable quantity of leaves, and add them to the pile’s green kitchen scraps. Believe it or not, mixing both types of materials helps to generate compost more quickly. Don’t throw in plants with disease or bug problems, and avoid composting dairy or meat products, as they’re a magnet for rodents.

If your property includes an expanse of lawn, give the grass one final mowing for the season. Gather the grass clippings and shredded leaves, and spread them over your flower beds to provide protection during the upcoming cold weather.

Plant Vegetable Seeds or Cover Crops
If you’re an avid vegetable gardener, fall is a great time to plant spinach, lettuce, and other cool-season vegetable seeds. If temperatures will dip below freezing, cover your plants with protective straw. Root crops such as rutabagas and carrots will also benefit from a nice straw blanket. Fall is also perfect for planting garlic and shallot bulbs.

If your garden didn’t materialize this year, get a jump on next season by planting a fast-growing cover crop. Evenly sow clover, rye, or similar seeds into bare soil. When spring arrives, turn the cover crop plants into the soil, adding essential nutrients your vegetables will love.

Spice Up Your Flower Beds
Plant colorful cool-season flowers such as mums and pansies, and add some ornamental kale for extra greenery. Chances are, these hardy plants will even survive most frosts.

Choose an enticing assortment of spring-blooming bulbs, designed to bring your Murphy, NC garden alive after months of cold weather. Hyacinth, crocus, daffodil, and tulip bulbs are popular choices. Plant your bulbs per the grower’s directions, button them up for winter, and get ready to enjoy a rainbow of color when you need it most.

We had very good results and a happy experience with them.  Would absolutely recommend John and The Poltrock Team at RE/MAX!
