Retire, Relocate or Purchase a Second Home in Smithfield Virginia: Home of History, Ham and Peanuts

By Elaine VonCannon, ABR, SRES, Associate Broker, Notary, Team Leader, Property Manager, Award Winning Agent

Walking down Main Street in Smithfield, Virginia, any visitor will have the sense that they are returning to America's past. The downtown district is small and filled with history, and townspeople are congenial. You will feel like you may see Aunt Bea, Opie, Barny Fife or Sherrif Andy of Mayberry as you stroll the Streets of Smithfield, Virginia.

Folks greet each other by first names. A casual trip to the deli and bakery is an opportunity to greet neighbors. Contrary to many metropolitan areas on the East Coast, Smithfield is not fast paced or stressful.

A visit to Smithfield is a journey into America's beginnings. Smithfield, Virginia and Isle of Wight County were settled in the 17th Century, and their rich history dates to Colonial times, when this part of the world was still under the governance of England.

For the retiree who wants a taste of small town American life, or the professional who is tired of the fast pace of urban areas, Smithfield is a perfect place to retire, relocate or purchase a second home. I can offer a wide variety of choices for real estate in this area, and would be happy to show any interested homebuyers around this lovely southern version of 'Mayberry.'
