If you are exploring on this site, it is probably safe to say that you are a horse lover. If so you have come to the right place. And a Charlottesville horse farm provides the perfect place for a horse lover to live; a fact that Pam Dent knows first hand.
Pam Dent has spent most of her life in Charlottesville Virginia. Her family moved here when she was in 2nd grade, making her almost a native. Although she lived in one of Charlottesvilles wonderful neighborhoods, Pam was a country girl at heart. Her favorite thing was animals and her favorite animals were horses. Riding lessons started at 9 years old and the barn was Pam’s favorite place to hang out. Although she begged and pleaded Pam was never able to talk her parents into buying her a horse, probably because they were never convinced that it could live in the garage. However she was lucky to quickly become good enough that various people asked her to ride and show their horses. Pam’s childhood became filled with horseshows and foxhunts. Hours were spent exploring the Albemarle County countryside on the back of a horse. This resulted in a lasting appreciation of the beauty of rural Central Virginia and a dedication for preserving the natural resources that make the Virginia Countryside so special.
Pam’s college years were spent studying art and print making at Miami University in Oxford Ohio. After graduation with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, Pam returned to Charlottesville. Although she still views the world with an artists eye, Pam decided to pursue a career with horses. She spent 35 years professionally riding, training and selling show hunters. Pam raised two daughters on a Charlottesville horse farm and the girls grew up with dogs and horses enjoying the equestrian lifestyle. At the same time they had the advantage of the excellent Western Albemarle schools and exposure to music, sports and theater.
Finally Pam decided that it was time to take off her spurs, turn over her horse business to her older daughter and take up a new career. At a certain point in your life, you just don’t bounce anymore. Real estate was the logical choice. You might ask “how does that follow?’ Well, Pam sold horses as an agent for many years to a largely out of state clientele. The trainer would call and tell Pam what kind of horse they were looking for, how well the client rode, and what the price range was. Then Pam would look over available horses for sale in the mid-Atlantic states, and when she felt that she had the right group of horses to match that particular client, Pam would have them fly in for a day of looking at horses. By the end of the day when it was time to get back on the airplane, the horse shopper would usually have made a choice. Next Pam would negotiate the sale price with the seller, arrange for the prepurchase veterinary examination, and handle payment for the horse. This sounds a lot like real estate doesn’t it?
In 2006 Pam Dent attained her real estate license and pursued a full time real estate career. Like everything she does, Pam totally immersed herself in the world of real estate and quickly became known as a knowledgeable horse property specialist. Whether you are buying or selling a Charlottesville horse farm, Pam can help you. Her local knowledge, up to the minute market knowledge, and attention to detail make her the best choice to assist you with your real estate transaction.
