Ted and Mary McMeekin – Union, WV


When we decided to sell our property on Elk Knob in Summers county, we reviewed other listings in print and on the web. After a short review, it was a no contest–Richard Grist’s presentations were far superior to all others. We invited him to our property to discuss terms and seek his professional advice.  We could not be more pleased. He visited and we ask if he needed help walking the property but he said he would just walk the land for a while. After a few hours I was concerned and called his cell phone. He was fine–had found the property lines and settled in reviewing some classic books left by the hippy previous owners in the old cabin.

That first visit was several hours–he said “this will be the best part of my day”, as he loves the remote woods and pasture. After a house tour we made plans for his next visit–a couple more hours taking pictures and enjoying the wildlife. His photography is spectacular.  He came back again and sat out in the pasture waiting for the sun to be perfect for his pics of trees, deer, butterflies, goats, horses, mule,dogs, tree stumps, etc.  We sent his listing to friends and relatives as no one had ever seen our place captured like this (but neither had we)–they just said “WOW!!!”. The aerial pics from their drone topped it off. For the inside he set up great shots with every light in the place on–we had never seen interior epics so bright (super camera and photographer’s eye must have had something to do with it).

After several visits by potential buyers it sold. The new owner said “Ted–the pictures sold it!!”

We then went to work to find our new home–after a short look we found a farm that fit our new needs perfectly–Of Course we purchased with Richard and Paul and now enjoy Highland Green Farm in Monroe County.  Another exceptional experience.

With the new move behind us  we decided we no longer needed our camp on the Greenbrier in Pocahontas County. Of course we called Richard and after showing the property several times, he found just the right buyer for our cherished cabin on the river.

We would highly recommend Richard Grist and Team Foxfire–your transaction would be a great experience.
