Karen Carpenter-Tacy
REALTOR®Associate Broker, Managing Broker Augusta County

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself. I moved to Augusta County from Cheraw, SC at the age of 10 when my family relocated to the area for my father to take a job with Smith's Transfer, a former large trucking company based out of Verona. Since I have lived in the Valley for 40+ years, I consider it HOME.

What a blessing that my dad took this transfer. The Shenandoah Valley is beautiful. Moving to the mountains was quite different from living in South Carolina, especially in regards to the weather. To this day, I still love a little or a lot of snow!!

As a child, the Valley was a great place to grow up, but it has been an even greater place to raise my daughter. The Shenandoah Valley has so much to offer to everyone, no matter their age, whether you are looking for recreational, educational, or vacation opportunities. We have it all! Plus, the history is astounding.
