MaconRealtor, I love your remarks. I can't believe that the N.C. Realtors Association has allowed itself to become part of the right-wing, anti-government groups like Americans for Prosperity and the John Locke Foundation. If ever a group benefits from the investments made in public infrastructure (roads, schools, transportation, parks, libraries, etc.) it is the realtors! Who wants to move into an area with bad schools, congested roads, no jobs, no cultural attractions? Nobody. So the realtors benefit from all the investments made by government in infrastructure but don't want to see their fair share be paid. For shame.

Well said Royal!! You are 100% correct. The first things that come out of the realtors mouth here(and rightfully so) is how good the schools are here. They even take them by for a drive thru. Keeping the infrastructure modern will only help real estate sales in WNC!!
