DelCioppoHi Richard!

We wish to convey Krissy’s and my sentiments concerning the recent sale of our Fox Creek home.

When we decided to sell our WV home, we did quite a bit of research in order to select the best qualified and knowledgeable real estate agency in the area; One with the most knowledge and most familiar with our beautiful area and its unique offerings.

Although we experienced some remorse with our decision to sell our property and leave the area, we decided to give you the listing and task of selling our beautiful home and property.

Your professional guidance and provided support proved to be the right decision, resulting in a marketing plan and strategy that provided excellent exposure to our property and leading to a swift sale. Throughout our experience, we all developed a true team relationship making the coordinated effort very productive, pleasant and timely.

Thank you sincerely!

Peter & Krissy Delcioppo

Bonnie BrooksWhen I began asking friends for recommendations on a realtor to sell my property in Monroe County Foxfire Realty came up again and again, and specifically, Richard Grist.

Having had no previous experience of selling and because the decision to sell was gut-wrenching, I felt particularly vulnerable and in need of a realtor with integrity. The location of the property was going to represent a challenge to any realtor and I was skeptical that a buyer could be found that met my criteria for a person, or family, who would be careful stewards of the land. I will always reflect on the decision to work with Richard as one of the better decisions I’ve made.

We all know what it feels like to be in the presence of someone whose work is a “calling” and not just a job. Richard is one of those people. His passion for West Virginia is obvious and contagious. With camera in hand he spent a great deal of time getting to know the property, its unique features, old growth trees, springs, and native plants. The photos on the website were artful and captured the soul of the property. The location did prove to be a hard sell, but Richard patiently proceeded to bring adventurous customers (with 4-wheel drive) who dreamed of a life of quiet and seclusion. He persisted with confidence and in a timely manner a great match was made. I was carefully guided through the negotiations and closing, and am now relocated and creating a new life.

Leaving was hard, but it was made easier by Richard’s kindness and patient guidance. Just as he was enthusiastically recommended to me I now offer my heartfelt endorsement of Richard and Foxfire to anyone looking for the best.

When our Greenbrier River Trail Association saw a perfect property for sale at the southern terminus, Richard Grist showed it to us. He also quickly signed on to helping us put together a group of potential supporters who could help make our purchase happen!

His enthusiasm for the goals of our group and the betterment of the community helped us through the process. We were able to close the deal and soon the southern terminus of the trail will have a suitable parking area, with room for local users and visitors, rather than the inadequate one that now exists. Thanks, Richard!

McminnFoxfire Realty is without question the right choice when looking for property in southern West Virginia. Richard Grist’s knowledge of the area is unsurpassed.

He spent the entire day walking 150 acres with me and going over all aspects of living in Monroe County. Since we live in Virginia he also guided us through each step of closing, making our purchase decision as easy as possible. After closing, my wife and I contacted Richard again to seek his advice for a local log supplier for our soon to be built cabin. Richard recommended Wilderness Wood Company and Alan Rice who is the owner. After researching numerous other companies and comparing products, my wife and I went with Wilderness Wood. We couldn’t be happier. They have been a great log cabin supplier and we’re now almost finished in our construction project. Not knowing anyone in the area we also used Richard’s expertise in assisting us in finding a local surveyor. David Holtz completed our survey for us. Once again, we were totally satisfied with the professional that Richard recommended to us. Oh, I forgot one other great professional that Richard recommended to us, Pritt Law Firm for our closing documents.

You now see why we’re so blessed with our decision to have Richard Grist at Foxfire Realty as our realtor. We could not have achieved the same level of success without Richard and his team of professionals. We will only use Foxfire Realty in any of our future transactions, They are the best!
