It has also promoted longtime employees Misty Graves to director of human services, and David Dillehunt—who has been serving as the city’s interim communications director since January, following Brian Wheeler’s resignation last fall—to deputy director of communications.

Refuge for refugees


Matt Haas


welve years after moving from Charlottesville to Prague, Kim Bianchini had built a real estate business with her husband when war in Ukraine broke out and refugees began flowing through Poland and into the Czech Republic. “The families that were arriving were having a very hard time signing leases and finding places to stay for several reasons,” Bianchini says. “One being that landlords were very skeptical to rent to them because they weren’t sure how long families would stay.” With her husband, Bianchini, who formerly owned the Petit Bebe boutique on

Amity co-founder Kimberly Bianchini embraces two children who fled a small town outside Mariupol, Ukraine.

the Downtown Mall, was able to place several mothers and children from Ukraine in vacant apartments they owned, but the need for additional housing grew more urgent as a growing number of refugees arrived in Prague. “This is when I decided to form a nonprofit organization and reach out to the community and try to find properties for these families,” says Bianchini. The organization she founded, Amity, has nonprofit status in the Czech Republic. Bianchini is working on acquiring 501(c)(3) status in the U.S. She has already secured 21 furnished apartments and has placed 75

women and children—but with an estimated 300,000 Ukrainian refugees already in the Czech Republic, the need for affordable housing is mounting. The nonprofit’s website, amity.ngo, has an option for making donations in American dollars, and Bianchini says the money goes directly to assisting refugees. “No one takes any salary or anything,” says Bianchini, who invites interested parties to contact her for more information about the people her charity is assisting. “I can directly connect you with a specific family so you really know where the money you’re giving is going,” she says.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in downtown Charlottesville on Saturday to protest an impending decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v. Wade and decades of constitutionally protected access to abortion. The Bans Off Our Bodies event led marchers from the federal courthouse

to the Free Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall, and was part of a nationwide response to the draft opinion that leaked earlier this month. Speakers included UVA Law Professor Anne Coughlin, Deborah Arenstein of the Blue Ridge Abortion Fund, and Josh Throneburg, Democratic congressional candidate for Virginia’s 5th District.

In a release announcing the event, attorney Andre Hakes warned that “the demise of Roe should be of concern to everyone who loves freedom. The rights to contraception, interracial marriage, and gay marriage are all based on the same interrelated legal concepts of privacy, due process, and equal protection... all these rights, and others, are at risk if Roe is overturned.”


March for reproductive rights


No more Dewberry The Dewberry Group, owners of the halffinished Dewberry Living building, will have to give the downtown eyesore a new name— and pay $43 million in damages. In 2020, Dewberry Engineers filed a lawsuit against the Atlanta-based real estate company for violating a 2007 confidential settlement agreement that prohibited it from using the name Dewberry, reports The Daily Progress. Last week, a federal judge ruled that the Dewberry Group breached the trademark agreement when it changed the vacant building’s name from The Landmark Hotel to The Dewberry Hotel, after purchasing the abandoned project in 2012— and again when it changed its name from The Laramore to Dewberry Living in 2020.

In a 4-2 vote, the Albemarle County School Board rejected a collective bargaining resolution proposed by the Albemarle Education Association during a meeting last week. Board members who voted against the resolution— which has received support from more than two-thirds of the division’s teachers, transportation staff, and school nurses—claimed the new state legislation allowing public employees to unionize did not provide adequate guidance, and wanted to see how other school divisions engage in collective bargaining before moving forward. Instead, the board unanimously voted to allow Superintendent Matt Haas to look into alternatives to collective bargaining, and report back in 90 days.

fter nearly two months of tension that included firings of high-level staff and public accusations of game-playing and racism against the Montpelier Foundation, the dispute between the foundation board and the Montpelier Descendants Committee has ended. At the May 16 foundation board meeting, the board voted in 11 new members recommended by the MDC, two more than had been previously promised. “This historic and unprecedented vote by the Board of Directors means that the Foundation has achieved its long-sought goal of parity on the Board for descendants of Montpelier’s formerly enslaved population,” the foundation said in a release. “It has been a long and not always easy process to get to this point, but one result of the process has been the identification of an incredibly gifted and renowned slate of new Board members.” “I just think all of us are surprised, thrilled and, you know, want to commend the board members, whatever their motivations were throughout,” says Greg Werkheiser, attorney for the MDC. “In the end, they took a hard vote. They did the right thing. And now, you know, the really hard work of rebuilding and restoring Montpelier’s finances, its reputation, its staff. That’s the next chapter.” The stage for dispute was set last summer when the foundation board voted to rewrite its bylaws giving MDC authority to recommend at least half of the board members. In late March, the board reversed that historic vote and blamed the MDC for being uncollaborative. “That’s not partnership. It’s not collegiality,” said former board chair Gene Hickok in an early April interview. Hickok resigned from the board at the Monday meeting. Dozens of historic organizations, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which owns Montpelier, condemned the foundation’s actions. Remaining Mont-

pelier staff released a fiery statement alleging the board was putting historic preservation work at risk and violating federal law. Those employees and the MDC demanded the reinstatement of staff who’d been fired for speaking out in support of the descendants and a change in leadership. Werkheiser says the new board will act quickly to rehire fired staff but declined to comment on the future of Montpelier’s embattled CEO Roy Young. Hickok and Young declined to be interviewed. The 25-member foundation board now includes 14 people representing descendants of the enslaved at Montpelier. Among those new members are journalist Soledad O’Brien, UVA McIntire School of Commerce Dean Nicole Thorne Jenkins, and the Reverend Cornell William Brooks, Harvard professor of the practice of public leadership and social justice and former NAACP president and CEO. “As our nation grapples with and even grieves over the racial injustices of this day, the work of the Montpelier Foundation is all the more important: teaching the lessons of the living legacy of President James Madison, studying the past and possibilities of our Constitution, and sharing across our Republic and beyond the ongoing story of those enslaved at Montpelier,” Brooks said in an MDC statement released after the May 16 vote. The new board members were selected from a list of 20 names MDC recently put forth for consideration. Werkheiser says the nine individuals who were not named to the board will serve on an advisory council. “It’s just further testament to the kind of egolessness of a lot of these public servants that they are willing to stay at the table, not sit on the bench,” he says. “They’re willing to put their shoulder to the wheel here as well. And trust me, all of them are going to be needed, as well as the returning staff, to put Montpelier back together again as quickly as possible.”



Union bagels


Corner Bodo’s Bagels employees seek to unionize

The majority of employees at Bodo’s on the Corner have signed union authorization cards, and requested voluntary recognition of the union.

olding colorful homemade signs and pictures of bagels, Bodo’s employees—joined by several dozen community members—gathered on the Corner last week, urging the restaurant to allow its staff to unionize. A majority of the workers at the shop’s Corner location have presented signed union cards to management in an effort to improve wages, benefits, and overall working conditions. “We are doing this not because we dislike Bodo’s—but because we want to improve it. In the three-plus years that I’ve been here, the starting wage has never been at or above a living wage,” said employee Malcolm Augat during the rally. “[Bodo’s] needs to make sure that it has workers from the city, who can afford to live in the city.” “I know people who haven’t gotten a raise in a year and a half—I got one last month and in January. I’ve been here eight months,” added employee William Wagoner. Employee Kieran Williams called for an end to the alleged sexual misconduct at Bodo’s. He claimed that a former female worker touched his crotch twice during their first shift together last year. Though he says he immediately reported the incident to management, he had to work with her for nearly three more months, until she was fired for not showing up to work. “I know countless other people who have quit because they’ve had negative interactions with other co-workers, including other cases of sexual harassment…

and [whose] harassers are still employed by Bodo’s,” he added. In an email, Bodo’s co-owner Scott Smith says management did speak with that former employee about inappropriate touching and believed the situation had been resolved to Williams’ satisfaction. Bodo’s has a policy prohibiting sexual harassment. Charlottesville City Councilors Michael Payne and Sena Magill, along with 57th District Delegate Sally Hudson, also voiced their support of the Bodo’s union, and encouraged more service workers across the city to unionize. However, not all Bodo’s employees are on board with the union effort. Six of the Corner Bodo’s 14 employees have not signed union cards yet. One Bodo’s worker silently protested throughout last week’s rally, holding up a brown cardboard sign saying, “8+ year Bodo’s employee AGAINST the union.” Since requesting voluntary recognition of the union—which would become a part of the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400—last week, pro-union employees claim they have also received negative reactions from Bodo’s managers, as well as co-owners Smith and John Kokola. Wagoner and Williams, who have been working to unionize the Corner Bodo’s for about half a year, accuse management of refusing to meet with union members, and making it “harassment” to ask people to join the union. One owner also came into the Corner location last week, and made employees “feel uncomfortable,” alleges Williams.

A decade after Sullivan dust-up, UVA embraces virtual learning By Eshaan Sarup


The flexibility of getting an online UVA education has proven to be an attractive option for many nontraditional students who want to complete their degrees.

“If we’re going to meaningfully expand the number of people who are educated, it’s not because we’re going to keep opening traditional programs… It’s because we’re gonna find new ways to innovate, to create high-quality programs that meet people where they are.” ALEX HERNANDEZ, DEAN OF UVA’S SCHOOL OF CONTINUING AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES


He argues that pitting online vs. in-person learning isn’t a useful comparison and notes that only 30 percent of the adult population in this country has a bachelor’s degree. “And so if we’re going to meaningfully expand the number of people who are educated, it’s not because we’re going to keep opening traditional programs. We have lots of traditional programs across the country,” he says. “It’s because we’re gonna find new ways to innovate, to create highquality programs that meet people where they are. And when people have successfully done that, you know, we’ve seen a lot more students get educated.” SCPS’ objective—to increase access to a quality education and “meet people where they are”—appeals to many of the students and faculty that C-VILLE interviewed. Charlotte Matthews, who teaches writing to BIS students, offers high praise. “I just feel like this program is a real gem in a world where sometimes life happens and people don’t march to the exact same drum,” she says, describing SCPS students as “highly motivated students who are getting a second chance. They’re taking classes and they’re working full time.”

Hallman says she would “highly recommend” the BIS program to all nontraditional students looking to complete their degree. “UVA SCPS has been a highlight through these last two years,” she says. “From day one, I felt everyone at SCPS was invested in my success.” Despite positive faculty and student testimonies, there is little hard data to support the program’s success. While UVA SCPS boasts three different degree programs and 12 different certifications, the official Destination Report for 2020 only has data for two degree programs—the interdisciplinary BA and the health care management BA. Moreover, only nine BIS graduates reported their salaries. Asked about that lack of data, Hernandez notes that a lot of information tracked by the Department of Education is for full-time students only. He says UVA, like many other universities, does not participate in gainful employment reporting although he believes that would be helpful. “You can imagine a world where higher education institutions come together and do more research on career outcomes and employment data,” he says. “That would actually create a lot of opportunity to measure the effectiveness of professional programs across the country.” Hernandez, who also serves as UVA’s vice provost for online learning , says that online education should be considered on a caseby-case basis. “We know [all other programs at UVA] can be offered fully online, I think the question is…for each one of our schools…what’s their vision for their programs that they’re trying to accomplish academically? Who are they trying to serve?” Hernandez cites the example of the new UVA Nova initiative, which caters to the working adult population. “It’s not going to be 23,000 students in Northern Virginia, going to school full time, in-person format,” he says. “And so I think that’s going to be a really great way for us to figure out…how do we run our great programs in different ways for different student populations that change lives. At the end of day, that’s what we’re trying to do.”


en years ago, a raging debate over the future of online courses led to the resignation—and reinstatement—of former University of Virginia president Teresa Sullivan. Now, after two years of pandemic-prompted virtual classes at UVA and schools across the country, online learning seems to be here to stay. However, the question of how an online education compares to inperson classes is still hard to answer. Enrollment rates at UVA suggest demand for online education is high. The UVA School of Continuing and Professional Studies, which offers a slate of degree completion programs and certificates tailored to older students looking to change careers or continue their education while still working, claims record-breaking enrollment in its online-only Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies Program. “I really appreciated everyone’s understanding when my son was on my lap during class, or if we could get up and get something to eat,” says Carla Hallman, who graduates from the BIS program this semester and was able to complete her degree while working full time and raising her son. Bladen Finch, who recently completed UVA’s Certificate in Public Administration Program, also needed his classes to fit around his schedule as a full-time employee for the state government. “There’s a lot of uncertainty with my job schedule,” he says, “and so having something that afforded more flexibility with the uncertainties, constantly changing work schedules, I mean, what could be more appealing?” On its website, the UVA School of Continuing and Professional Studies points out that the university as a whole was ranked as the No. 1 best value public university by the Princeton Review in 2018—but it doesn’t specify accolades for the online education offerings alone. The SCPS homepage beckons potential students to “let UVA come to them” and “join the UVA family.” The FAQ section of the website says that “graduates of [UVA SCPS degree programs] are entitled to the same privileges and opportunities available to all students who have earned degrees from the University of Virginia.” An article under the news section of the website claims “employers may not realize you graduated from an online program unless you choose to bring it up in an interview.” But when asked if an online degree through UVA SCPS holds the same value as a traditional in-person UVA degree, Alex Hernandez, the dean of SCPS, declines to answer directly, and instead reframes the issue. “People go to different programs for different reasons. And so each program has its own population. And the program has its own outcomes, and it has its own objectives,” Hernandez says.

employees working 30 or more hours…and provide 6 paid holidays per year and an escalating one to two weeks of yearly vacation pay for full time staff.” According to the MIT Living Wage calculator, a living wage for an adult (with no children) in Charlottesville is at least $18.59 an hour. If Bodo’s owners refuse to voluntarily recognize the union, the Corner employees will have the opportunity to vote in a union election. If the majority vote in favor of the union, they can then start negotiating a contract. “Our responsibility here is to ensure that all employees have that opportunity to express their choice with a vote, and to continue to support them whatever the outcome might be,” says Scott. If the Corner Bodo’s does vote to unionize, it will not affect the restaurant’s Preston Avenue and Emmett Street locations. However, Williams says union organizers have already started talking to employees there, and are “absolutely willing to help” them unionize, too. And despite the pushback they say they have received from management, the prounion employees do not want the community to boycott the restaurant. Instead, they ask union supporters to come to the Corner location wearing a red article of clothing on Wednesdays. “We would encourage you to reach out to the owners and have them do the right thing,” tweeted the Bodo’s union account last week. “You can also voice your support of the union to Bodo’s workers when you order your favorite bagel!”

Online vs. in person


Following the union rally, Kokola and Smith posted a message to employees at a different Bodo’s location, encouraging them to weigh “the pros and cons” of unionizing. “We strongly suspect that there would be more negatives than positives associated with a union at Bodo’s,” read the letter, shared with C-VILLE by an anonymous employee. “A union [would] demand the kind of mediated management that would disrupt our efforts to operate with the judgment and humanity that permit situational context. A management staff contractually stripped of such autonomy… must resort to the kind of ‘three strikes and you’re out’ rule-book foolishness that makes so many other workplaces feel thoughtlessly rigid, disconnected, or even stupid.” In an email to C-VILLE, however, Scott emphasized that he and Kokola support employees’ rights to choose to be represented by a union or not, and have not prohibited them from discussing unionizing at work—but cannot meet with union representatives until the process is complete. He also touted the wages and benefits Bodo’s employees already receive. “The average pay for staff at the Corner currently sits at $17.00,” Scott wrote. “We also pay 2/3 of the [health care] premium for

Hoos the best From the water to the track, and the courts to the fields, here are some of UVA’s game-changing women athletes

May 18 – 24, 2022 c-ville.com



By Julia Stumbaugh


hen Carla Williams took charge of University of Virginia athletics in 2017, she was the only African American woman directing sports at a Power Five school. Now, she is one of three. But Vanderbilt’s hiring of Candice Storey Lee, and Duke’s of Nina King, is not the only way Williams has helped shape sports during her six years as UVA’s athletic director. On March 21, Williams made one of the biggest hires of her career by naming Amaka “Mox” Agugua-Hamilton head coach of UVA women’s basketball. In 2019-20, Agugua-Hamilton set a Missouri State record for wins as a rookie coach. After leading the Lady Bears to a 73-15 record over three seasons, she will bring four assistant coaches and her FABs (family, academics, basketball) coaching philosophy to Virginia. While Agugua-Hamilton implements her fast-paced scoring style, which she says is influenced in part by men’s basketball head coach Tony Bennett’s mover-blocker offense, Williams will continue implementation of her “Master Plan,” a $12-14 million overhaul of UVA athletic facilities. As these two women decide the future of UVA women’s sports, here’s a glimpse at 11 of the female athletes who have shaped the university’s 2021-22 season, plus a Notre Dame transfer who’s thrilled she’s “coming home.” Halfway through Virginia rowing varsity four’s grand final race, where senior Hailey

Barnett (1) was rowing in lane five, Duke nosed ahead in lane six. “We knew they would try to make moves on us,” Barnett says. “So, we decided to take a move against them.” In the final 500 meters of the race, the Cavaliers made a power 10 move, where all rowers coordinated 10 powerful, simultaneous strokes. The crew finished with the fourth-fastest varsity four time in conference history to help Virginia win its 12th consecutive ACC rowing championship. “We didn’t do as well as we’d hoped throughout the beginning of the season, so we were honestly a bit nervous going into it,” Barnett says. “But our motto on the team is to stay humble and hungry, so we were ready to give it our all.” That competitive mindset is a Barnett family tradition. Barnett’s father, Fred Lee Barnett, was an NFL wide receiver from 1990 to 1997. Her mother, Jacqueline Barnett, is a dancer. Both provide guidance and support for Barnett and her twin sister and UVA roommate Myla Grace Barnett (2), a senior defender for UVA lacrosse. Myla Barnett recorded 10 caused turnovers in 2022, including a single game-best of three in the 2022 ACC semifinal. Growing up, she had few Black lacrosse players to look up to. Now, she is playing in this month’s nationally televised NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament. “I know that there are a lot of younger Black lacrosse players who want to be in my shoes and want to have these opportunities,”

she says. “I’ve had younger Black aspiring lacrosse players DM me on Instagram. That is something that’s super important to me, and a lot of why I keep going.” Barnett has provided coaching clinics for young Black players, and played tournaments alongside Black college stars like Syracuse’s Emma Ward and Ohio State’s Chloë Johnson. Meanwhile, as part of her Citizen Leaders and Sports Ethics Community Impact Fellowship at UVA’s Contemplative Sciences Center, Barnett is planning anti-racist student-athlete education and a commemoration for Virginia’s enslaved laborers. She is also a member of Generation Now, an organization diversifying the sport of rowing. “There is definitely a disparity in Black collegiate rowers, and Black rowers in high school, and I think it’s because of the lack of exposure that kids of color have in the sport of rowing,” Barnett says. “I’m happy to set the example for other kids of color who want to row.” After UVA’s NCAA lacrosse bid, Barnett is preparing for the strangeness of being “more than 10 feet away” from her sister for the first time when she starts a job on Wall Street this summer. “I’m glad that there’s still FaceTime, and things like that,” she says. “We’ll definitely be speaking to each other every day.” This year’s Virginia men’s and women’s swim and dive ACC championships, usually held at staggered times, played out side-byside at Georgia Tech from February 15 to 19.

That meant 15 minutes after junior Kate Douglass (3) helped the women’s team set an American record for the 200-meter freestyle relay, she was able to watch the men’s team set a record of their own. “I think that was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of,” Douglass says. “Breaking the American record myself was super exciting, but then getting to see the men do it right after, our team just went crazy. You could just tell how much we all loved and supported each other.” The relay record wasn’t the only mark statistics major and 2020 Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Douglass made on college swimming history in 2022. As she helped Virginia successfully defend its NCAA title on March 16, Douglass became the first college swimmer to claim three individual titles in three different strokes by winning the 50 freestyle, 100 butterfly, and 200 breaststroke. What’s more, she set American records in all three events. “I just wanted to get as many points as I could for my team, and I wanted to make sure that I was having fun with my teammates and that everyone was just smiling and enjoying themselves,” Douglass says. “I think what’s really special about our team is that we don’t really do it for ourselves. We do it for each other. And that definitely helps take the pressure off yourself.” Whether indoor, outdoor, or at a championship, junior sprinter and jumper Jada Seaman (4) loves the 200-meter race.



A storm thundered through Charlottesville as Virginia tennis hosted Oklahoma State in the NCAA Round of 16 on May 14, causing the singles tournament to move indoors halfway through as Oklahoma State claimed four of the first six sets. But it takes more than a two-set deficit and some rain to rattle sophomore Emma Navarro (6), who dispatched her opponent in two efficient sets to help the Cavaliers advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Team Championship for the first time since 2016. After joining Danielle Collins (2014, 2016) as the second player in program history to claim the NCAA singles title in 2021, Navarro, in 2022, was the first Virginia singles competitor to enter the NCAA singles tournament as the No. 1 seed. In her second game as team captain of Virginia squash on November 14, senior Caroline Baldwin won her first set against fourth-ranked Columbia’s Ellie McVeigh. McVeigh claimed the next two sets, putting Baldwin—and Virginia’s hopes of emerging with victory against their Ivy League opponent—on the ropes. Baldwin rallied to win the final two sets, earning the difference-making point in a historic 5-4 win over the highest-ranked squash team Virginia has ever defeated. “I’m coming home,” Tweeted Ruckersville native Sam Brunelle on April 9, when she announced her decision to transfer from Notre Dame to Virginia. In 2019, Brunelle emerged from William Monroe High School as one of the top basketball recruits in the United States. After leading ACC freshmen in scoring (13.9 points per game) in 2019-20, a series of injuries haven’t been enough to slow the 6-foot 2-inch Brunelle. In Notre Dame’s November 9 season opener against Ohio, she came off the bench to drop 20 points in 17 minutes. That’s the kind of offensive explosion Agugua-Hamilton hopes Brunelle will repeat in Charlottesville.


the Hoos after racking up 741 career kills for Northwestern, led a comeback. She slammed down back-to-back blocks to clinch both the second and third sets of a 3-0 win. Walker recorded 16 kills that day as the Cavaliers swept Georgetown and Fairleigh Dickinson to finish out a perfect 9-0 tournament. She went on to lead the ACC, rank second in the NCAA, and mark the secondbest single-season blocking performance in Virginia volleyball history by averaging 1.51 blocks per set. With 19.5 seconds left in the third quarter of a scoreless battle with No. 6 Syracuse, junior midfielder Danielle Husar found the ball on her field hockey stick at the side of the net. She lifted it into the goal to help No. 16 Virginia grant Syracuse its first loss in over a month. The goal reflected the Virginia midfielder’s international career as striker for Team Canada. In April, Husar traveled to Potchefstroom, South Africa, to represent Virginia and her native Mississauga as a striker at the FIH Junior World Cup. Last year, she helped win the first Pan American gold medal in Canadian history at the Junior Pan American Cup in Santiago, Chile. During the May 10 Ann Arbor Regional, from which four golf teams advance to the NCAA tournament, all eyes were on Virginia sophomore Jennifer Cleary after three birdies put her 3-under par halfway through the second round of play. A bogey on the 12th hole looked like it might set Cleary back—but the Cavaliers’ leader in stroke average knew how to rally. Cleary knocked in back-to-back birdies on holes 14 and 15 to record a career-best 4-under 67. Cleary’s score marked just the fourth time in program history a Cavalier has recorded a 67 during regional play, and helped Virginia claim an NCAA berth with the thirdbest team score ever recorded in a single round at Michigan’s golf course.


“That was something that I’ve just been working on for so long.” Godfrey’s goal decided one of the 15 victories, which allowed the Cavaliers to clinch the top spot in the ACC with a draw against Florida State on October 28. “That is one of the hardest things to do, is win a regular season title, playing that many games and coming out on top,” Godfrey says. “We celebrated in the locker room. There was a lot of dancing.” While completing the first two years of a biology degree and shadowing small animal vets in pursuit of a veterinary career, Godfrey has led Virginia in assists for two seasons. “A lot of it has to do with connections between me and my teammates,” Godfrey says. “They make the right runs so that I’m able to play those passes. Sometimes I may not see them, but they make a good run…they’re able to read what you want, and I know what they want, so those passes are just able to connect.” In the top of the first inning against Sacred Heart on February 19, a Virginia softball player waited in scoring position. From the confidence with which freshman catcher and utility player Sarah Coon hit the ball to send her home, the crowd could have never guessed it was only Coon’s eighth college game. Sacred Heart retaliated with three runs in the bottom of the frame. That blow might have felled a previous Virginia squad. Instead, Coon polished off a 9-4 comeback win in the sixth inning by cracking the first homer of her college career over the fence. That four-RBI game helped ACC AllFreshman Coon rack up 32 RBIs in 51 games to help Virginia tie a school record with 12 conference wins. When Virginia volleyball went down 2321 against Bellarmine at Memorial Gym on September 18, it looked as if the Cavaliers were in danger of dropping the first set of the home tournament. Instead, 6-foot 3-inch graduate student middle blocker Alana Walker, who joined

“It’s so quick and just fun to me,” Seaman says. “I feel like the 200 is the perfect length, too. It’s not too short, like the 60. It’s not too long and painful, like the 400. It’s just that happy balance.” In 2021, Seaman set the Virginia freshman record for the 200-meter with a time of 23.70. The next year, she clocked in at 23.18 seconds—just 0.01 short of Sonja Fridy’s 1987 all-time school record. “I really want to break 23 seconds,” Seaman says. “That’s my goal, so hopefully I’ll be able to do that.” In addition to working toward a school record and studying business with a “Mad Men”-inspired interest in marketing, Seaman has been perfecting her long jump. “My strategy up to now has just been to run and just kind of hope for the best, because speed on the runway has kind of saved me,” Seaman says. “I’m not that pretty in the air, but I’m fast on the runway. I just need to be able to hone my speed and really put it all together in the end.” Seaman put this work to the test at the ACC championships on May 12. This jump was different from the others. With the help of teammates and coaches, she had learned to enjoy the leap. “I got sixth place, and I’ve won long jump three times now, but getting that medal means a lot to me,” Seaman says. “That was the first time I really had fun.” After 70 scoreless minutes of soccer against defending national champion Santa Clara, Virginia was granted a free kick near the top left corner of the box. Sophomore midfielder Lia Godfrey (5) lined herself up, thought of the team’s desire to win for recently injured senior forward Rebecca Jarrett, and curved her shot into the net. “I work on shooting from different areas around the box, and getting it up and over the wall, because that’s kind of one of the most difficult parts of shooting a free kick… and it went up over that wall,” Godfrey says.




Fund Portals to Build Global Community

May 18 – 24, 2022 c-ville.com



A portal is a large public communications tool that provides a live video and audio connection between distant parts of the world. It works best in a town or city with a public pedestrian central space. A portal connects one city with one or more other cities, and helps create understanding and friendship. Inspired by the success of similar projects, we intend to create our own in C-ville and its Sister Cities of Winneba, Ghana; Huehuetenango, Guatemala; Poggio a Caiano, Italy; and Besançon, France. Our goal is to raise the funding for two or, ideally, all five portals and offer it to the City of Charlottesville, or to some other local entity should the city decline. We can do this if we all chip in.

Italian playwright Dario Fo’s political satire Accidental Death of an Anarchist pokes fun at the Italian police force by imagining a fictionalized aftermath of 1969’s real-life Piazza Fontana bombing. Giuseppe Pinelli, an anarchist wrongly accused of the bombing, plummets to his death from a fourth-floor window while in a police interrogation room. In the acclaimed play, the Maniac works his way through the police station, confuddling officers with absurd disguises and witticisms until the truth is revealed. Susan E.

New Orleans jazz ensemble Tuba Skinny fulfilled a lifelong dream this year with the release of Magnolia Stroll, its first album of original music. The group formed in 2009 as a loose collection of street musicians that combines cornet, clarinet, trombone, tuba, tenor banjo, guitar, frottoir, and vocals. Influenced by a wide range of music, including spirituals, Depression-era blues, ragtime, jug band music, and more, Tuba Skinny is known for its commitment to reviving longlost songs—which is what makes Magnolia Stroll so special.

t’s been more than 40 years since Ralph Sampson led the University of Virginia Cavaliers to a run of basketball glory that included an NIT title in 1980, an NCAA Final Four appearance in 1981, and a trip to the NCAA Elite Eight in 1983. The 7-foot, 4-inch Harrisonburg native was one of the most sought after college recruits of his generation, winning NBA Rookie of the Year and making the cover of Sports Illustrated six times during his college career. He retired from pro basketball in 1995, went into coaching for several years, and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011. For his latest rebound, Sampson returns to Charlottesville to lead a new team at Ralph Sampson’s American Tap Room, which held its grand opening at its Barracks Road location last month. “The opening weekend was crazy,” says Sampson. “It happened to line up with alumni weekend, so the opening celebration with the teams tested us from the start.” The stylish restaurant combines a traditional sports bar with upscale-casual dining, and it’s clear how much consideration went into every aspect, including the decor. Seated under a wall of signed basketballs, accented by a miniature statue of Sampson

himself, the superstar baller takes care to emphasize that “this is not just a sports bar. We want it to be a place where people can have great experiences and great food. You’ll never see me hang my jersey on the wall.” The idea, says Sampson, is to bring together the community as a whole. “The world of UVA can feel very separate from the rest of the city,” he says. “Like when I was a student, I didn’t feel like I knew the rest of Charlottesville. So we hope that this can be a place for both communities.” The menu follows the vibe of the restaurant with a mix of bar food and fine-dining options, intending to offer something for everyone. A bacon-wrapped filet mignon with lobster tail rings in at $54, with burger prices around $14. An order of the jumbo lump crab cake arrived softly composed, herby, and drizzled with grilled lemon accompanied by crispy, well-seasoned fries. A side of dijonnaise complemented the crab dish, as did the house IPA—Ralph’s Big Juicy, a mouthwatering citrusy beer developed in partnership with Three Notch’d Brewing Company. With plenty of room for dessert, Sampson personally recommended the Rockslide brownie sundae. “It’s one of my favorites on the whole menu,” he says. “The chocolate is so rich and soft, there’s nothing else like it.” Sampson approaches his foray into the restaurant business with a coach’s mental-

“I want to win championships in the restaurant industry.” RALPH SAMPSON

ity. “I want to win championships in the restaurant industry,” he says. He understands that success in this field, like sports, comes from building a team of talented, hard-working players. Sampson partnered with Thompson Hospitality, the group behind The Ridley on West Main Street, to build his first original-concept restaurant. “I first met Warren [Thompson] back when we were both at UVA, but it wasn’t until recently that we connected again over this project,” he says. “There were so many moving parts and some setbacks when it came to opening this place up. It really showed us our strengths and our weaknesses, and I was lucky to have such an experienced and professional team on my side.” Sampson says he has lots of plans for the space, everything from screenings of classic games to meet-and-greets with professional athletes and live recordings of his allthings-sports podcast, “Center Court.” With its community focus, and sports history foundation, his American Tap Room is a place where Sampson is sure to power forward once again.

Epic metal Ellen Durkan forges fashion into runway shows By Maeve Hayden arts@c-ville.com



face looks like it could be from a mold, but Durkan actually hand-formed it using a chasing repoussé technique, where a design is created on the front side of a piece of metal by hammering the back side, and chasing involves pushing back metal on the front side to define a design. The final layer opens to view the wearer’s own face. “I like working with pieces that the model can manipulate on the runway. The face piece goes with a skirt that has hinging doors and a tryptic opening that’s based on gothic architecture, and a rose window inspiration in the center,” says Durkan. “The model can open the doors on the skirt and on her face, so she’s in control of what she’s representing.”


ruffles so smooth they look like fabric, armor-like bodices, curling skirts, soaring headpieces, and more. She makes all of it at Iron Maiden Forge, her one-person shop in Delaware. Durkan’s work takes inspiration from numerous sources, including gothic architecture, Celtic knotwork, and Alexander McQueen. One of he favorite creations features a fitted neck piece and face covering. “I really like that piece because it’s conceptually dynamic, and on a technical level it’s dynamic,” she says. Inspired by triptychs, the face piece features three layers. The top layer is a cage-like steel face covering, which hinges open to reveal the second layer—a nose and mouth formed out of copper. The


Artistic blacksmith Ellen Durkan’s Wearable Ironwork workshop takes place at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing in Waynesboro from May 23-27. Learn more at vablacksmithing.org.


It’s an intimate process, forming metal around the curves of the body, and Durkan can see peoples’ confidence grow as they fit pieces to themselves, sometimes to cover insecurities, other times to embrace them.

May 18 – 24, 2022 c-ville.com

n an industry divided by art and craft, blacksmith Ellen Durkan is forging her own path. Durkan creates intricate, complex, wearable art, known as “forged fashion.” She was drawn to blacksmithing while pursuing a master’s degree in fine arts at Towson University. No one in the program was a blacksmith, but that wasn’t a problem for Durkan. She started messing around with metal and scored a blacksmith assistant position at Peters Valley School of Craft in the summer of 2008, which gave her a taste of what forging could be. With no background in fashion and half a summer’s worth of ’smithing experience, Durkan got to work on her thesis—a runway show that combined her newfound love of blacksmithing with her passion for figurative work and performance art. The finished show featured six women in fabricated dress cages, complete with metal shoes. Durkan is open about the beginner quality of her early pieces. “They weren’t forged or fabricated particularly well, and they weren’t structurally sound, but you’ve gotta start somewhere,” she says. “I have to credit the exploration of crappy stuff that fit poorly and was extra stabby and all over the place.” Today, Durkan’s wearables are dynamic, accessible, and significantly more comfortable thanks to clever leatherwork. Her portfolio includes copper collars with

Her work is a beautiful, impressive feat by itself, but it comes alive with new meaning when it’s worn. It gives power to the wearer, acting as literal and metaphorical armor that invites vulnerability, inspires confidence, symbolizes strength, and literally takes strength to wear. You can see the finished products—bodies wrapped in metal—at runway shows. One of the last shows Durkan held was in 2019, and it featured 45 minutes of original music, aerial performers, and 16 models from ages 15 to 72. The oldest model was a friend of a friend. “She was very reserved,” says Durkan with a smile, “and then as soon as she hit the runway she was just owning it. And she kept her piece on all night, the heels and skirt.” This confidence is something Durkan also sees in students’ workshops, where she works with them to design and forge something to fit the neck or chest. It’s a class that not only teaches students about blacksmithing, but about themselves. “It’s a personal exploration as well as a forging exploration,” says Durkan. “Most people aren’t super in tune with their bodies, and in order to make these pieces, they’re allowing me to help them. We get personal about stuff, their stories.” It’s an intimate process, forming metal around the curves of the body, and Durkan can see peoples’ confidence grow as they fit pieces to themselves, sometimes to cover insecurities, other times to embrace them. From May 23-27 she’s teaching a five-day workshop at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing in Waynesboro—the only artistic blacksmithing school certified to operate by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. VIB offers a variety of classes that require no experience, like Durkan’s, as well as a Certificate of Artistic Blacksmithing, taught by co-founder Dale Morse. Despite making art that’s undeniably badass and takes an extraordinary amount of skill, not everyone sees what Durkan is on to. In graduate school, Durkan says she was told not to pursue the direction she did, and today, she still faces pushback from a male-dominated industry. “I think it’s a little better now, but 12 years ago there was such a divide between art and craft, and you were just shoved into one of the dimensions,” she says. “If you have crossover, which I kind of do, the art world is like ‘well this is too much craft’, and the craft world is like, ‘there’s naked women, she’s dealing with emotional issues through metal, we don’t know what to do.’ But I just kept doing what I wanted, and eventually people came around and were like ‘Oh shit, maybe she’s doing something that other people might be interested in.’” Durkan is still doing what she wants, and expressing herself through any art form she can get her hands on—ceramics, drawing, makeup, photography, pinup. “I don’t feel like I should be pigeonholed into just one thing. It’s all part of the same artistic expression. Do whatever you want to do.”

Gemini (May 21–June 20): According to the blogger Artemisiasea, “The grandeur of life is the attempt, not the solution. It’s about behaving as beautifully as one can under completely impossible circumstances; making room for what breathes in the presence of the attempt—in the coming-to-be.” I invite you to embrace that wisdom in the coming weeks, Gemini. You won’t be dealing with impossible circumstances, but you may have to navigate your way through fascinating brainteasers and heart riddles. Whatever your destination might turn out to be, enjoy the ride with all the verve you can summon. At least for now, put aside your longing for particular results and instead simply live your life as if it were a magnificent work of art.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): It will be in your interest to change more than usual in the coming weeks. I suppose you could wait around passively and scramble to adjust as life flings challenges your way. But the better approach would be to make conscious decisions about how you want to transform. Identify the situations that would most benefit from modification and then initiate the transitions. Rather than depending on fate to provide you with random wake-up calls, choose constructive wakeup calls that are fun and invigorating.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): “If everyone likes you, it probably means you aren’t saying much,” declared political strategist Donna Brazile. I suspect you will disprove her theory in the coming weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you will have a lot to say; your communications will be even more interesting than usual. And yet, I also expect you will receive extra respect and appreciation from others. While you may articulate ideas that are challenging to some, you will do so with enough charisma to disarm agitated reactions. A winning combination: expressiveness and approval.


Taurus (April 20-May 20): “I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me,” declares comedian Margaret Cho. I would love for you to summon her level of self-esteem and bravado in the coming weeks. According to my interpretation of the astrological omens, you now have the right and duty to boost your self-worth. All of creation is conspiring with you to develop more faith in yourself. And if you do the work to deepen your confidence and self-esteem, there will be an added bonus: a health breakthrough. As spiritual author Caroline Myss says, “Belief in oneself is required for healing.” My prediction: You will rouse an enhanced power to get the soul medicine you need.

before him had ever climbed all 14 of the world’s peaks higher than 26,000 feet. He has transited Greenland and Antarctica without the aid of dog sleds or snowmobiles. He also completed a solo trip across the Gobi Desert. I propose we make Messner your inspirational role model for the next four weeks. You may not achieve history-making triumphs like him, but you could surpass what you assumed were your limits. I trust that you will break at least one of your personal records.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “The world is a very puzzling place. If you’re not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else’s mind.” Author Noam Chomsky said that. It’s useful counsel for you right now. I’ll go even further. I will advise you to relish the healthy pleasures of being both mysterious and mystified. Seek out fertile enigmas and be a fertile enigma yourself. Explore the rejuvenating wisdom of being indefinable and uncategorizable. Exult in the quizzical joys of Eternal Paradox.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Have you ever contemplated the beauty of the people and animals you care for and thought, “I would love to give them the strongest blessings I have to give, the smartest love I can express, and the best listening I’m able to provide.” If so, Scorpio, the coming days will be an excellent time to do that. You will have an extra capacity to offer exceptional gifts that are useful and inspirational. You will be at the peak of your ability to home in on what your beloveds need.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian author Madeleine L’Engle told us, “The discoveries don’t

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19): Is it a legend or a true story? Scholars disagree about whether Capricorn scientist Isaac Newton really was spurred to formulate the theory of gravity when an apple fell from the tree he was sitting beneath. This much is certain: Newton lived in the home near the famous apple tree. And that tree is alive today, 380 years after his birth. Ripe apples still fall from it. Is there an equivalent landmark or keystone from your own past, Capricorn—where an important insight arose or pivotal event happened? The coming weeks would be a good time to revisit that power spot, at least in your imagination, in quest of fresh inspiration.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian poet Jack Gilbert wrote, “I lie in the dark wondering if this quiet in me now is a beginning or an end.” I don’t know how Gilbert solved his dilemma. But I suspect you will soon be inclined to pose a similar question. In your case, the answer will be that the quiet in you is a beginning. Ah! But in the early going, it may not resemble a beginning. You might be puzzled by its fuzzy, meandering quality. But sooner or later, the quiet in you will become fertile and inspirational. You will ride it to the next chapter of your life story.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The genre of poetry known as haiku often relies on unexpected juxtapositions. Critic R. H. Blyth observed, “In haiku, the two entirely different things that are joined in sameness are poetry and sensation, spirit and matter.” I suspect your life in the coming weeks will have metaphorical resemblances to haikus. You will be skilled at blending elements that aren’t often combined, or that should be blended but haven’t been. For inspiration, read these haikus by Raymond Roseliep. 1. in the stream / stones making half / the music. 2. horizon / wild swan drifting through / the woman’s body. 3. birthcry! / the stars / are all in place. 4. bathwater / down the drain / some of me. 5. grass / holding the shape / of our night. 6. campfire extinguished, / the woman washing dishes / in a pan of stars.

Aries (March 21-April 19): “The only way to the truth is through blasphemy,” declared Aries author Flannery O’Connor. I appreciate the cheeky sentiment, but I don’t believe that all truth requires blasphemy. In many cases, rebellion, irreverence, and skepticism may be enough to pry loose hidden and buried information. Outright blasphemy isn’t necessary. What does this have to do with you? Well, I’m hoping you will be feisty and audacious in your quest for interesting truths. As you dig, I invite you to be less than perfectly polite. Don’t be rude or unkind, of course. Just be charmingly bold. Expanded weekly audio horoscopes and daily text message horoscopes: RealAstrology.com, (877) 873-4888



come when you’re looking for them. They come when for some reason you’ve let go conscious control.” That approach isn’t absolutely true, but it may be useful for you to deploy in the coming weeks. I invite you to relinquish at least a modicum of your conscious control. And if zesty discoveries start flowing in, consider relinquishing even a bit more conscious control.

CAAR Homes Sales Report First Quarter 2022 Market Report Key Takeaways Economic Conditions • Virginia’s economy continued to improve in early 2022, despite rising inflation and the escalating conflict overseas. Economic conditions are solid in the Charlottesville region, with very low unemployment and strong job growth. • Even as the economy improves, consumer confidence is shaky. In March 2022, the measure of expectations of future economic conditions fell to its lowest level since 2013. • Mortgage rates are on the rise. In the second week of April, the average 30year rate hit 5%, the first time it has been at this level in 11 years.


Housing Market Conditions • There were 888 homes sold in the CAAR region during the first quarter. The number of sales was 17% lower than a year ago, reflecting 177 fewer sales. This is the third quarter in a row of year-over- year sales declines in the region. • Home prices continued to rise quickly in the CAAR area. In the first quarter, the median sales price was $389,900, which was up 13% over a year ago, a gain of nearly $45,000. • Inventory continued to fall in the CAAR region but at a slower pace. There were 472 active listings across the CAAR footprint at the end of the first quarter, which is just 3% fewer listings than this time last year. Supply expanded in some local markets around the region.

Economic Overview Despite ongoing uncertainties, the economy in Virginia continues to improve. In February 2022, total employment in Virginia surpassed four million jobs, the first time that milestone has been reached since March 2020. About 111,900 jobs have been added over the past 12 months. The total number of jobs in the state is now just 2% below where it was prior to the pandemic. The job recovery in Virginia continues across most sectors, with the fastest growth in some of the sectors that were hardest hit by the pandemic. The Professional/Technical Services, Transportation/Warehousing, Administrative Services, and Federal Government sectors have all been back to pre-pandemic levels for several months. However, in February, for the first time, the number of jobs in both the Retail Trade and Construction sectors surpassed pre-pandemic levels. A key indicator of the improving economy is the unemployment rate. In February, the unemployment rate in Virginia was 2.9% (not seasonally adjusted), which is down from 3.4% in January and is at the lowest level since March 2020. In the Charlottesville region, the February unemployment rate was 2.5%, down from 3% in January. New Construction In 2021, there was a total of 1,327 permits issued for the construction of new housing units in the Charlottesville metro area. This is the highest number of housing permits issued in the region since 2006, at the height of the housing boom. New residential construction continued to be brisk in the first part of 2022. In January and February, there were 286 new construction permits, which is up significantly from prior years. In 2021, about two-thirds of all new construction permitted was single-family housing. In the first two months of 2022, more than 70% of new housing permits were for the construction of single-family homes. Consumer Confidence Consumers’ outlook for the economy dipped this spring in response to high inflation and ongoing conflict overseas. In March 2022, the measure of how confident consumers feel about the future economy fell to 77.7, down from 87.2 in February, and the lowest level since 2013. Between February and March 2022, consumers’ confidence in the present economic situation ticked up from 153.1 to 161. (A consumer confidence index above 100 indicates people are feeling more optimistic about economic conditions.) Mortgage Rates Over the past few weeks, mortgage rates have risen faster than they have in nearly 30 years. In the second week of

April, the average rate on a 30-year fixedrate mortgage hit 5% for the first time in 11 years. Rates are rising in response to actions taken by the Federal Reserve, including a boost in short-term interest rates and a pullback in the purchase of bonds and mortgage-backed securities. The Fed has telegraphed several more short-term rate increases during 2022, which indicates that mortgage rates will likely rise further during the year. Even as rates continue to climb, they are still at historically low levels.

Housing Market Overview The number of home sales in the CAAR housing market was lower than a year ago, which reflects a cooling from the frenzied market of 2021. However, homes prices in the region continued to rise briskly, and homes were selling more quickly, which means that buyers are still active in the market. A lack of inventory has been the primary constraint on the market, and there would have been more sales if there was more inventory. Market conditions could be changing, as inventory may have bottomed out in the Charlottesville region and higher mortgage rates could dampen demand. Sales There were 888 sales across the CAAR footprint in the first quarter of 2022. Home sales have been down year-overyear for three consecutive quarters, reflecting a slowdown from the frenzied 2021 market. In the first quarter, the number of sales was 17% lower than a year ago, a decline of 177 sales. Home sales were 6% higher than pre-pandemic levels, with the first quarter sales total 6% higher than sales during the first quarter of 2020. Statewide, the number of home sales in the first quarter was down 8% compared to a year ago and was 9% higher than first quarter 2020 sales totals. Sales Prices The number of home sales transactions has slowed in the CAAR market, but prices continued to rise broadly across the region. The median sales price in the region was $389,900 in the first quarter, which is up 13% compared to a year ago, a gain of nearly $45,000. Home prices have risen quickly over the past two years in the Charlottesville area. The median sales price is now $87,900 higher than it was during the first quarter of 2020. The median sales price rose in the first quarter in all local markets in the CAAR region. The strongest price growth was in Fluvanna County, where the median price increased by 24% year-over-year. Median home prices were up by 22% in Louisa County and 17% in Nelson County. Statewide, the first quarter median sales price was $375,000, up 12% compared to a year ago. Sold Volume The decline in home sales led to a drop in total sold dollar volume in the CAAR region. Regionwide, there was a total of approximately $431.4 million of sold volume during the first quarter. Sold volume was down 3% compared to a year ago, which is a decline of about $13.2 million.

Days on Market Even though the number of home sales has declined, transactions are moving very quickly in the CAAR market. Homes that sold in the first quarter in the CAAR region were on the market about a month on average, or 30 days, which is 15 days faster than a year ago. The pandemic accelerated the region’s housing market. In the first quarter of 2020, for example, it took an average of 78 days for homes to sell in the CAAR region. Statewide, homes sold in an average of 24 days in the first quarter, down from 31 days a year ago. Inventory Inventory is at historically low levels in the CAAR region. Supply continued to fall in the first quarter, but the yearover-year inventory declines have moderated, suggesting that inventory might be bottoming out in the region. Across the CAAR footprint, there were 472 active listings in the region at the end of the first quarter. Inventory is down by just 16 listings, or 3%, compared to the end of the first quarter of 2021. Compared to a year ago, the number of active listings actually increased significantly in Fluvanna County, Greene County, and Louisa County. Despite those gains, the number of homes on the market in the CAAR region is just about a third of what it was in the first quarter of 2020, before the onset of the pandemic. Statewide, there was a total of 13,610 active listings at the end of the first quarter, which is about 2,000 fewer active listings than a year ago, a 13% drop. There were just 1.1 months of supply at the end of the first quarter in the CAAR footprint. The metric is down from 1.2 months a year ago but rose from 1 month at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021. The months of supply metric is calculated by taking the average monthly sales over the preceding 12-month period and dividing it by the inventory of active listings.

Rising Rates & Higher Costs


What’s a Buyer to Do?


ising mortgage rates, higher prices, and low inventory are taking their toll on wouldbe buyers in this real estate market. Some of these buyers are determinedly forging ahead, some are making drastic compromises, and others are dropping out of the market altogether. Let’s be clear. We have not seen these kinds of increases in rates, inflation and housing prices in decades. Combine that with extraordinarily low levels of inventories of homes for sale, and it’s no wonder frustrated buyers are calling it quits. And for some, that really is the best choice.


For most, it’s time to take a breath, sit down with their partners, reevaluate everything, and come up with a plan based on current market realities. It’s hard, though not impossible, to find a shred of optimism to hang on to these days. But armed with a well-conceived plan, a buyer can still succeed in this unstable market.

Core Problems At its core, higher home prices and low inventory are attributable (at least in part) to the surge in demand caused by a wave of millennials in their prime home-buying years. However, the low inventory also encourages an increase in demand for new construction, which, combined with labor and materials shortages, pushes prices to unprecedented highs.

Given the cost of replacement, current homeowners are reluctant to sell. Even if an owner wants to sell, it’s difficult to justify letting go of an affordable asset and entering an uncertain market. Additionally, Bill Hamrick, Branch Manager with C&F Mortgage, says, “A record number of homeowners refinanced last year. Those people are going to stay, especially if they took money out of the refinance to get a new kitchen. They’re sitting at two or 2.5 percent interest and are not interested in flirting with a mortgage rate at six percent.” Those factors leave us with a housing inventory in Central Virginia of just over one month, according to the CAAR (Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS®) Home Sales Report for the first quarter of 2022.

And if that isn’t bad enough, after sitting at or near rock-bottom for almost two years, mortgage rates suddenly took off, leaving would-be buyers wondering what hit them.

Rising Rates Just two months ago, super-low mortgage interest rates were a driving force in home-buying activity. Many buyers saw those rates and told themselves, “Now is the time to buy.” They may have been right. However, as the CAAR Report describes, “Over the past few weeks, mortgage rates have risen faster than they have in nearly 30 years. In the second week of April, the average rate on a 30-year fixedrate mortgage hit 5 percent for the first time in 11 years.” That was April. Since then, the Federal Reserve raised the short-term interest

rate by another half-point and many expect more increases during 2022 to limit inflation. “I’ve been doing this for 35 years and have never seen a market like this,” says Hamrick. “The crazy prices and spiraling interest rates make it difficult. We have gone from below three to almost six percent and the rates just went up again today. “This doubling in rates is having an incredible impact on buyers. The same house today costs a buyer $200 more per month than it did just a few weeks ago. “And it’s not just the base rate that is causing problems. If your credit score is below 700, you’ll likely pay even more for a mortgage, probably another onehalf percent. At the same time, loan-tovalue ratios are dropping to 75 percent. That’s an indication that entities buying mortgage-backed securities think today’s home prices may be inflated.”

MAY 18 - 24, 2022 ISSUE 3120


Julia Morris-Roberts, Mortgage Loan Officer with Fulton Bank, agrees. “It’s heartbreaking to see pre-qualified buyers waiting for the right house to come available and now, all of a sudden, they no longer qualify in the range they were looking.”

Know Your Pain Points Financing a home adds one more layer of complication to an already difficult process. CAAR President-Elect S. Lisa Herndon advises buyers to get two experts on their team from the first moment they start thinking about buying a home—a REALTOR® and a lender they can trust. “And then use them. Sit down and strategize. Play out all the possible scenarios. Know everything upfront, especially what your pain points are. “What strategies will you be able to use to be competitive in this sellers’ market? Do you have the budget to go $20,000 over the asking price? And then if the

But in this environment, you really need to be in constant communication to keep up with these rapid rate increases.” Buyers are Beyond Frustrated After making four or five offers and losing out to cash buyers or better offers, buyers must now deal with higher rates and potentially more stringent financing conditions. And all the while, home prices keep rising. Jay Domenic, Mortgage Loan Officer with Towne Mortgage advises, “The most important step for buyers is to circle back to their lender. If they have been pre-approved or pre-qualified a month or so ago, the mortgage rates have probably shifted out from under them. Buyers need to know what they qualify for at today’s—and tomorrow’s—interest rates. “I always try and give my clients a bit of a cushion in case rates move up while they are looking. But in this environment, you really need to be in constant communication to keep up with these rapid rate increases.”

house doesn’t appraise at your offer, can you make up the difference in cash? How does the lender feel about foregoing an inspection or having the inspection for information only? These are all questions you need to know the answers to before you start making offers. “With mortgage rates so aggressively on the upswing, it’s critical to think about what interest rates will be in two weeks or two months. The worst thing is to be pre-qualified at a certain mortgage rate and then have a subsequent uptick in the interest rates nullify the deal.” Another reality that can make a difference is geography. If escalating mortgage rates price buyers out of their target market, they may be forced to look further afield. Buyers need to evaluate exactly where they are willing to buy and under what conditions. Broker Ray Caddell, with Ray

Caddell & Co. Real Estate, says, “In the last two years, I have sold more houses over the mountain than I have in the previous 30-plus years. Buyers are being priced out of the Charlottesville area. “Under $400,000 is tough. Under $300,000 is next to impossible. I worked with a young single professional firefighter with no debt. At her salary and savings level, she qualified for a little over $200,000 purchase price. We could not find her a suitable house in the area she was working at these mortgage rates. A firefighter should be able to live in the county they are protecting. “Those who could easily buy a house before can still buy one. Those who struggled before, have an even harder climb now that interest rates have jumped up.”

Possible Solutions But all is not lost. Even the CAAR quarterly report suggests that price increases might begin to decelerate. Hamrick agrees. “Late in this quarter or mid-summer, I think you’ll start seeing a slowdown in prices. The escalation clauses that shoot home prices way over ask, may start becoming a thing of the past.” In the meantime, there are tools and strategies that can help buyers in this

“Buyers shouldn’t be scared off by adjustable rates. Decades ago, there were some unfavorable ARMs on the market, and borrowers did get burned. Those days are gone. ARMs are not a bad word anymore. We really are creating a product that will best serve the client.” Morris-Roberts advises buyers to be open-minded and explore all options. ARMs can make a home more affordable and give buyers the security of knowing their rate won’t change for whatever period they choose.

Silver Lining Higher mortgage rates may help to end our frenzied housing market. And in the long run that may help buyers, especially those who take a breath and analyze their situation with a balance between the long view and short-term strategizing. Hamrick explains, “I had a client with two preschoolers who was struggling with a decision of whether to buy in this volatile interest and high price market. I asked her how long she was planning to stay here. It turns out she is fully committed to having her kids graduate from high school here. I advised that she buy. Now. Costs are only going to go up over the next couple of years. That is very

market. One of them is to shift from long-term to short-term thinking. Morris-Roberts says, “Think shortterm. Everything is a cycle. We expect rates to go up and then come down again. Of course, the million-dollar question is when and by how much? “But no one wants to get into a 30-year fixed mortgage at five and a half or six percent. Especially when they probably won’t be in the house for that long. Statistically, 80 percent of loans are for fewer than eight years. Borrowers either refinance or sell. Knowing that, why would you lock into a rate close to six percent? Buyers need to think strategically and short term. “As a bank, Fulton keeps and services our mortgage portfolio. That allows us to offer more competitive adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs). We have a seven-year ARM in the low four percent. The mortgage is amortized over 30 years, but the rate is locked in for seven years. If you’re still in the house near the seven-year mark, you can discuss with the lender what the best options are. In the meantime, you’ve likely saved hundreds of dollars per month and didn’t jeopardize your pre-qualification.”

different from the couple who is just biding time until they could land a job in Oklahoma. They should rent.” Even though the odds seem stacked against buyers who require financing, it’s not impossible to get into the right house. If buyers are counting on mortgage rates coming back to hit three percent like they were a year ago, they are only kidding themselves. Morris-Roberts says, “That train has left the station. But there are ways to keep mortgage rates low by thinking and acting strategically. And by working with a lending partner that gives you more options.” “Buying a house in this market is so psychologically draining,” says Herndon. “Prices are high now and they keep going up. It seems as if mortgage rates are getting higher by the day. It’s tempting to drop out of the market altogether. And no doubt, for some people that is the right move. “But don’t give up before having an honest appraisal with your team. You can win in this market with the right strategies and tools.” Carla Huckabee writes about high-performing real estate.
