We often remark on how our move to The Waters in Pike Road was meant to be! During a visit with our son and family (who was stationed here attending the military college), we took a drive to visit various communities. We had been looking for a place to get out of the cold Wisconsin winters. Everything we looked at in Alabama and elsewhere had a sterile feel. And then we drove down the Avenue of the Waters! It was love at first sight! We looked at a few model homes and called LJ Smith at New Waters Realty to ask some questions. His response, “I have just the lot for you!” and he was right. We bought the lot the next day.We went back to Wisconsin and didn’t return until the home was built. It was really just that easy. LJ made it the smoothest by far of the four homes we have built. It was exciting to receive all of LJ’s photos during the build process. It’s been two years and all the neighbors on every side have been such a gift. They are all wonderful, warm and friendly folks. Walks in the neighborhood are longer than expected as everyone stops to chat, even strangers. We still pinch ourselves!
