My name is Sally Newkirk, and I’m a native Floridian. I relocated to the Valley in 1993, and 9 years later I became a realtor. Real estate was a natural career transition after 13 years as a paralegal.

Though I miss easy access to water sports and being close to the ocean, in general, I’m glad we relocated to the Harrisonburg area. My daughter, Ayla, got a good education in Rockingham County schools, and this area is a wholesome, safe place to raise a family.

I am a firm believer that comfort, security, and relaxation make a house a home. A home should be the kind of place where you throw away the day and renew yourself, and I will listen to your needs and help you find that place. A buyer’s attorney once said, “Sally is the agent that kept us moving and hopping to get this thing done,” and I pride myself on my work ethic and knowledge of this industry.

I like to sell and help people buy healthy, energy-efficient, and comfortable homes. Did you know that most of the carbon in the atmosphere comes from heating and cooling your house? Energy-efficient means having the same service with less energy, and I will help you find that in your new home or achieve that in the home you have now.

One of my former clients said, “I call Sally when I need a business reference for work I might need done – she is a Rolodex of reputable contractors, pest control, insulation people – you name it. And she’s GREEN”

Green is a word that is thrown around a lot anymore, but I attempt to embody environmentally-friendly living personally and at work. In my free time, I love to go camping in West Virginia. I love the white water over there. West Virginia is a beautiful place and so is Virginia.

I also love to write. Check out my blog, <a href=””></a>. This blog envelops my concept of nature and this valley. “Shenandoah” is Native American for “Daughter of the Stars,” and on my Daughter of the Stars blog, you will learn about Valley attractions but also about important real estate topics like mold, radon, and volatile organic compounds.
