Our marketing is strong and things have definitely turned in the right direction for sellers who are serious about selling. Itâ€™s still a good time for buyers but inventory in most all price ranges is going down.

Bora Bora Krisha and Derek Klinedinst of Blacksburg and Moneta honeymooned in December at the St. Regis Bora Bora in French Polynesia where they stayed in an over-the-water bungalow that allowed them access to jump straight into the Pacific Ocean. Krisha said the resort is where the movie “Couple’s Retreat” was filmed. Pictured in the background is Mt. Otemanu, one of two peaks on the island that are remnants of an extinct volcano.
Kelly Joyce and daughter Ella of High Point, N.C. (daughter and granddaughter of Brenda and Donnie Payne of Moneta) visited friends in Paris in May where they posed for this photo with the Laker in front of the Eiffel Tower.
In May, newlyweds Creig and Erika Rogers of Goodview took time while on their honeymoon in Sint Maarten, part of the Netherlands, to pose with the Laker in front of Maho Bay. “We spent our time enjoying massages, sunning on the white sand beaches, fine dining, shopping and sipping tropical beverages,” Creig said. “We never leave home without the Laker, so we had to include it in one of our honeymoon photos on the island!”
Bill and Anna Telford of Moneta celebrated Anna’s birthday and their 25th wedding anniversary with a trip in June to the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. The couple had this photo taken atop the Zugspitz, Germany’s highest mountain at 9,718 feet. The mountain lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the border between Germany and Austria runs over its western summit.
Mary and Stephen Campbell of Moneta traveled in April to Spain and Portugal, visiting Madrid, Toledo, Segovia, Avila, Salamanca, Fatima, Lisbon and Sintra. Stephen said hightlights included a day spent with friend Pedro Ruiz visiting his home city of Toledo and learning about the culture of the region. In this photo, the Campbells display their Laker with the harbor of Lisbon in the background.

Philip Sheridan of Moneta (left) visited his seventh continent in February when he and son Philip Lee Sheridan of Solana Beach, Calif., traveled to Antarctica, spending three weeks sailing on the expedition ship Corinthian II. Included was a stop at Port Lockroy, a British research station, where the Sheridans posed for this photo with the Laker (and penguins). Other highlights included a visit to Palmer Station, the only U.S. research station in Antarctica, and Deception Island, the caldera of an active volcano, where the junior Sheridan participated in a polar plunge.
In June, Phil and Janice Reed of Moneta celebrated 50 years of marriage with a trip to Costa Rica, which included time spent at the base of the Arenal volcano (in background) where they hiked the Arenal hanging bridges and soaked in the Baldi Hot Springs.
Warren and Janet Robertson of Union Hall and Martha and Buddy Brooks of Rocky Mount took the Laker to the summit of White Pass (elevation 2,864 feet) in May. Passing through the Boundary Ranges of the Coast Mountains on the border of Alaska and British Columbia, Canada, the area was one of two main passes used by prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 1800s.
Ron and Sharen Cordell of Huddleston visited Italy, Turkey and Greece to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary in June. They posed for this photo in front of the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. “It was an amazing trip to so many places from the Bible and ancient history,” Ron said.
In May, Dawn and Keith Lambert of Goodview and Phil and Cheryl Ege of Moneta traveled to Italy, Austria and Germany. This photo was taken at Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy, a retreat area where a number of stars – Madonna, George Clooney and Sylvester Stallone among them – have or have had homes.
