There is something cool about being able to hop over to another state without much effort. Crank up the Jeep, visit a few North Carolinians, and make it back home with enough time for a bike ride around the neighborhood. That was almost exactly how my day went when I headed South to see Elizabeth City Realtor, Heather Sawyer. She is the owner of Water Street Real Estate Group and was voted “Best Real Estate Agent” for 2021 by Best of the Albemarle. She saw tremendous growth in 2021 (we’re talking 85% growth in one year!) and needed headshots that can keep up with her success. And, if I’m being honest, it was also an excuse for me to check out her sweet office space.
The coffee bar alone was worth the drive.
One of the great things about Elizabeth City is that you are usually within walking distance of your next new experience. For us, that meant taking advantage a new brewery in town called Seven Sounds Brewing Company. The black and metal tones offered more dramatic options, which I immediately gravitated toward.
I know, I know. You are shocked.
The space also offered more traditional wood and brick backdrops, ensuring we got some shots that will translate well throughout various social platforms. The cherry on top was the rooftop deck. With the water behind her, it was the perfect way to pay tribute to the coastal town that homes her business. And if you know anything about this part of North Carolina, then you know that the residents are proud of their home. That includes an Elizabeth City Realtor like Heather.
Heather, cheers to what will surely be another incredible year for you and your team! You just so happen to live in one of my favorite spots across the border. It won’t take much to convince me to load up the Jeep for another trip.
