The charm of this all brick 4 bedroom CUSTOM home will grab you the minute you walk in the front door. The front porch and sprawling, private, yard welcome you into this impeccably maintained home. Extensive crown and chair moldings, “real” masonry fireplace with gas logs, along with the owner’s custom upgrades truly can’t be matched. 2 bedrooms down and 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor for all kinds of living possibilities. There is also plenty of dormer and walk-in attic space. The architectural designed screened-in porch provides the perfect relaxation or entertaining space. The .95 acre lot is private and expands into the wooded area, complete with fire pit. Over sized shed conveys for extra storage. The side-entry 2 car garage has a painted floor and built-in work bench and peg board. This one is a gem!

Soon you will see artists dotting the streets of Fuquay-Varina’s two downtown districts. Some are very well-known and have traveled from afar for this annual event and some are local aspiring artists. We do know that all will bring Fuquay-Varina’s beauty to life on their canvases right before our eyes. I am sure you have noticed the paintings of past years En Plein Air events beautifully transformed into murals displayed all around town on the exterior walls of our historic retail shops and restaurants. This year’s event even includes a special Student’s En Plein Air Event sponsored by the Fuquay-Varina Arts Council. Students will have a chance to have their art displayed in the new Fuquay-Varina Performing Arts Center opening this Summer.

The fun begins Friday, May 5th, 2018 at 12 noon and continues throughout Saturday, May 6th, 2018. A live auction of the original paintings will be held on Saturday evening in the heart of Fuquay-Varina’s downtown historic district on Depot St.

For all of the details visit the the Fuquay-Varina Downtown Revitalization District’s website.

Fuquay-Varina Bengal Proud!

I was recently asked to speak to a group of local Fuquay-Varina Middle and High School students as a business owner in the community.  I wanted to share my experiences, in hopes that more business members in our community would be inspired to volunteer. Each activity took me less than an hour.  I know that hour could lead to a big impact on these young adults as they begin to think about their future. As always, I know I got more out of it than they did!

My friend, colleague, and educator, Mr. Rodney Jenkins, is the Career and Technical Education Coordinator for Fuquay-Varina Middle School. He recently approached me and asked if I would speak to his entrepreneurial class.  My topics included: why I started my own business, what’s involved with owning my own business, the hardest part, the easiest part and more.  I brought along my company’s advertising goodies like stadium cups and pens, and tossed some candy to the students that participated.  The students had awesome questions and provoked my own thoughts on why I do this.

I was overjoyed to hear the students decided they are going to arrange a “field trip” to visit our office sometime soon.  I can’t wait to see them again!

There are so many opportunities to get involved with students in Fuquay-Varina. I was also asked to address the first Fuquay-Varina Youth Leadership Group conference. This initiative is the first of its kind for Fuquay-Varina and the students selected to participate. I was asked to speak about Front Porch Realty’s application process and how I determine good candidates for our firm.

Laura Moody recently addressing both students and staff.

These bright, energetic high-schoolers had so many great questions for me!  They are eager to learn how to make a difference in our town and they are striving for greatness.  I commend the staff of Fuquay-Varina High school for working so diligently to start this leadership program and make a difference in these student’s lives. Imagine all the lucky businesses that get to hire these young folks someday!

If you are interested in helping any of our community schools in ANY way please contact our office or join the FV Business Alliance. Our next meeting is coming up soon!

The Food Cupboards garden

621 W Holly Springs Road, Holly Springs

The Food Cupboard

Did you know that Holly Springs has a very busy food bank?  They work in conjunction with area grocery stores and the Raleigh food bank.  It’s called the Holly Springs Food Cupboard and they serve 1000’s of Holly Spring residents every month.  This giving group even has their own garden that produced over 2000 lbs of fresh food last summer! The Holly Springs Food Cupboard welcomes your volunteerism in many ways and even has group projects for your civic and student groups.

 

Front Porch Realty recently visited the Cupboard’s ribbon cutting with the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce, to celebrate their recent addition, giving them much needed space to serve their clients.

Thank you to all of the volunteers that make this Cupboard happen.  God Bless You!
