When we're not busy helping buyers explore the best Rockingham County homes for sale, many of the agents at Old Dominion Realty enjoy spending their time trying new recipes. As the colder weather starts to creep in, we particularly enjoy making homemade soup. Not only is it easy to make and comforting to eat, but when you cook a batch of soup, your home will smell amazing all day long.
So many of the beautiful Rockingham County homes for sale have impressive entryways. Often, this is one of the features that captivates potential buyers. However, if your entryway is cold and sterile, it can have the opposite effect - detracting from your home's overall appeal.
I live in Mint Spring, which is south of Staunton about four miles. I have so many good reasons why I love where I live.
This area is rural but yet very close to town, schools, interstate for travel and just being convenient to everything that I need. We built this house 30 years ago and keep making improvements all the time. Now that I am alone in this house, it still is comforting and everything I need to continue for many years to come.

They welcomed their beautiful daughter, Rowan, into the world in November 2019.
After living in Rockingham County, Penn Laird, and McGaheysville, for 25 years, I moved back to my hometown of Shenandoah, VA, to be near my parents. I love the hometown feel and a neighborhood of friends and church family. I'm now within walking distance of my lifelong friends and parents. I love how the Town of Shenandoah offers something for everyone. Be it a computer center, a library, a variety of excellent restaurants, community movie nights, holiday events like Easter Egg Hunt, Christmas Tree lighting, parades, carnivals, veteran memorials, and regular events to support the elderly and those in need. I can sit on my front porch and listen to the church bells every day play my favorite hymns. The beauty of this area is something that we take for granted.

Gail grew up in the small town of Dayton and has lived in five different new homes (all built by Gail and her husband, Kevin), since 1986. Her homes have ranged from Rockingham County, Bridgewater, and Dayton. She has returned to Dayton, where she truly calls home! She currently lives in South Breeze Estates, in Dayton. Gail is an alumnus of Turner Ashby where her two grown children also attended school.
I live in the College Park neighborhood of Staunton, Virginia (McSwain Elementary and Staunton High School districts), and my family and I love it here! We have great neighbors, and there is a genuine sense of warmth and community here. We're always looking out for each other, and it's always easy to say hello or offer neighborly help to one another. Life is a little bit slower, and southern hospitality is everywhere. Furthermore, my son really enjoys McSwain Elementary, and we have nothing but good things to say about the awesome teachers there. I would also like to highlight the plentiful programs available to us through Staunton Parks and Rec and the local YMCA.
