The September issue of the Talk of the Colony was delivered in my newspaper box on the first of the month as it is every month. There are some great articles included as well as notices of meetings of various clubs throughout the Colony. Of note, the FCHOA Board of Directors will be meeting Sept 20 at 1:00pm and Sept 23 at 2:00 pm. The Agenda and prior meeting minutes can be found on the neighborhood website at FCHOA2.org.
From the Board editorial page Ron Smith, resident and Director-at-Large has again contributed information on the governance of the Fords Colony Home Owner’s Association. Mr. Smith advises of the ‘checks and balances’ that are instrumental in all forms of our National and State levels of government but also in the Home Owner’s Association governance. The bottom line? Our membership (the homeowners) can elect and can remove Board members. The Board acts as one body with a majority rule. Mr. Smith correctly asserts that the ULTIMATE check and balance within the HOA is the continued participation of the home owners (the members) in the ‘affairs of the Association’.
Ford’s Colony really is fortunate in that so many folks DO participate and Do take advantage of the number of opportunities to stay involved in the management of the HOA. Certainly these folks ensure proper and fair management and future success of the neighborhood. Well done Mr. Smith!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog all about Ford's Colony!
Since 2007 I have been THE TOP OVERALL SALES AGENT with the highest gross sales of all Liz Moore agents in Williamsburg. In fact, I annually lead ALL local agents in total closed sales.
As your full-service Realtor for the Williamsburg, James City County and Greater Williamsburg areas, I will provide you with superior service at all times. I've lived in Williamsburg nearly 30 years, giving me a wealth of "local knowledge" of the entire region, so I can provide clients with the best possible real estate experience.
If you are selling a home, my expertise and proven marketing programs will give you the exposure and edge you need to sell your home quickly for top dollar. I have a comprehensive marketing plan to ensure your home stands out:
As an Accredited Staging Professional, I am well-versed in staging homes and preparing them for market. I provide all necessary furnishings and home accessories FREE OF CHARGE!
After staging, I work with a professional photographer to capture your home's best features in still photos and 3D virtual tours.
Your home will be listed in both the Williamsburg MLS as well as the Newport News/Hampton MLS (REIN). This ensures that your home is available through sites like Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Trulia.com. Your home will also appear on my website PremierWilliamsburgRealEstate.com as a Featured Home.
Your home will also have representation through print advertising in The Daily Press, The Virginia Gazette, direct marketing and other outlets.
If you are buying, I look forward to helping you find the home of your dreams by taking time to listen to your needs and desires. I am familiar with all of the neighborhoods in the James City County, Williamsburg, Toano, York County, Lanexa and Stonehouse areas. I can help folks new to this area become acquainted with all that it has to offer and gain confidence and comfort during their move.
A little about me: I am a 1988 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Economics. Hook 'em Horns! I have earned the "Accredited Staging Professional" credential to help home sellers in staging their homes to sell quicker and usually for more money. I also have the SFR - Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Specialist designation. I help any client who is struggling with a mortgage to learn options to avoid foreclosure and also help any clients who are in a short sale situation.
I love Williamsburg! It is an excellent place to live, and I would love to share my enthusiasm for its many neighborhoods and attributes with you. Please let me help you with your next move. -- Deelyn
