Blue Ridge was named after the Blue Ridge Mountains which form a part of the great appalachian system. It came into existence almost immediately following the construction of the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad from Marietta to Blue Ridge. Col. Mike McKinney was the founder of the town and constructed the first house in Blue Ridge. Mike McKinney was the GG grandfather of my husband Terry, which he is very proud of.
I am just one part of a team. My husband Terry Ledford and myself are the Ledford Team with EXIT Realty Mountain Properties located in Blue Ridge, Ga. We work together as a team to make sure that our customers get the best service around. We know these mountains well, Terry's GG grandfather (Michael McKinney) is one of the founders of our beautiful town of Blue Ridge and he helped to get the railroad to Blue Ridge as well. His home is still standing in our town. So our roots run deep around these mountains. Customer service is number one with The Ledford Team, so either buying or selling, we can take care of your real estate needs. Two agents are better than one!
Number one, you were right on the money in suggesting the sales price for our house. Number two, you were very patient and most pleasant to work with, always had a happy attitude even when things were being hectic in the negotiations.
Most of all, we feel that you went way above and beyond in seeing to the completion of our sale once we had reached a contract, i.e. arranging for the survey and various inspections. Our absence would have made this very difficult for us to accomplish.
All in all, you made us feel very comfortable in a stressful situation and we never had any doubt that you were always looking out for our best interest. We would only use you in any future transactions and would never, ever hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Thanks for your patience and diligence in selling our property in north Georgia.

I had been looking for a place in the N. Ga. Mtns. off and on for over 2 yrs. I had dealt with 5 different realtors that all told me I would "never find what I was looking for" with my budget. I had just about given up looking for my dream cabin, when I got a card in the mail from Patty. She had gotten my name and address as a referral from one of the home booklets that I had ordered. I had gotten many cards from other Realtors, but something about Patty's note just stuck out. She really sounded interested in me and what I wanted, so I gave her a call.
After I told her what I was looking for and the price I could afford, she did not bruch me off like I had been done before. She stated "it may take a while, but we'll find you the right place". After less than 2 months of looking, we found my dream cabin in the Dial area--and I could not be happier!
Patty handled everything for me--I did not even have to go to the closing, we did it all by mail. Not only is Patty Ledford my Realtor, I'm proud to call her and her husband, Terry, my friends. If you are looking for a realtor to find you your "dream cabin" in North Georgia, look no further than Patty.

How can I really put into words the great experience I had dealing with Patty ? My wife and I had visited in the Blue Ridge area for almost two years. We fell in love with the area and decided we would like to be able to escape to the area during the year. I found Patty's name in a real estate book and called her one afternoon while grilling on my deck. We "gell-ed" from the beginning and the entire experience was wonderful ! My wife and I came about 4 times and viewed properties with Patty. She has a laid-back style that I really enjoy and appreciate. I work in the financial services and am always judging the customer service I receive. Patty was not pushy! She was responsive and honest with her advice. Patty went above and beyond in several instances to provide us with the information we requested. I would not hesitant to refer any of my friends to her.

We just want to thank you for all your help in finding the "perfect" house just for us. You went above and beyond the call of duty for us. You made our buying experience wonderful. Thanks again for everything you have done for us.
Wayne & Jena Crumley-Blue Ridge, Ga.
Thanks Patty....We are really pleased with the whole experience. You made it very enjoyable and pleasant, even when we were nervous. I will keep you in mind for the future. I do miss those fried apple pies. Maybe we'll take a trip up soon...I'll call if we do. Thanks again!
Brian and Christina-Vero Beach, Fl.-
Thank you for helping us find our retirement home location. We knew we liked the Ellijay area, but had no idea how to go about finding something. You worked tirelessly for several months as we kept sending you listings we found on the internet in addition to the ones you found. You researched each of them and was ready with an itineray each time we drove up. You and your husband, Terry, drove us around Sunday after Sunday from noon until dark. You never appreared to get tired of our many questions. If you didn't know the answer, you would find out and get back to us in a timely manner. Our visits to look at land were truly fun, even for my teenage son. I really hate that the trips have ended.
Thank you for finding us our dream piece of land. I hope we keep in touch.

Dear Patty & Terry:
You don't know how grateful we are to you. You have helped us from the start of our moving from Florida to Blue Ridge to the day we closed on our house. With your knowledge, your experience, you found us a very suitable nice home in a great location in a short period of time! Now we are very happy in our new home. Many, many thanks to you both.
We would recommend you to our friends in Florida or to anyone who has real estate needs in the future.
Our best regards amd wishing you both continued sucess in your business.
