Living easy in Grayson County. I enjoy our beautiful scenic back roads, our clear water and mountain vistas. With a background in forest land management, ornamental shade tree production, marine construction and development, I see endless opportunities to live the easy life here in the Grayson Highlands. I look forward to helping others achieve a similar lifestyle and find their new home, farm or recreational property.
Growing up in the Midwest, Vicki had the opportunity each summer to visit her paternal grandmother in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia. After garnering nearly 30 years of corporate business development and relocation experience (in both Chicago and Nashville) she finally had the opportunity to return, full time, to her beloved mountain home in Grayson County. Her family dates back well over 200 years in this region and she has spent the last 8 years serving as a volunteer and/or board member for several regional non-profit organizations including The Twin County Arts Council, Mount Rogers Community Service Board, Matthews Living History Farm Museum, Master Gardeners of the Blue Ridge, the Goodwill Grange, and The Big Blue Magazine. Her favorite "off-duty" activities include learning to oil paint and keeping a large vegetable garden. Vicki is eager to share you all that is extraordinary about the beautiful mountains and regional culture of Grayson County.
