Here in the Piedmont Triad, we know how to have a great time. As Spring arrives and nature begins to welcome fresh buds and beautiful color palettes, consider taking in a few of these unique and fun upcoming events! Remember, a house is more than sticks and bricks, it’s a place you can call home in the heart of a vibrant community.
Once you take a look at these local events, give me a call at 336-575-7249 and let’s work together to find your next home in the midst of such wonderful community events.
