Ridge To River Realty Holds Ribbon Cutting on New Location
Ridge 2 River Realty celebrated its own move this past Friday with a celebration and ribbon cutting held at its new location at 27 Pleasant View Lane, Middlebourne, W.Va.
The ribbon cutting ceremony, and cookout, gave area residents an opportunity to mingle with the company at its new headquarters. Al and Julie Bolin of Sycamore Creek Farms provided some of the food for those partaking in the event, and Chris Hoke of Rising Moon Farm offered some beautiful flower arrangements to add to the festive atmosphere. There were also several local artists on scene to display some of their artwork in support of the new business, and Power Country 99.5 was on hand to help inform the community of the day’s events.
Steve Zechman, owner/broker of Ridge 2 River Realty, noted that his business, which opened January 1, 2014, has taken off on a nice path upward.
“We are so grateful to the public for accepting us and supporting us. Spread the good word… We’ll be there to serve you,” he said.
Zechman works alongside his wife, Linda, as well as agents Amy Fluharty and Parnell Schoolcraft.
Zechman said he asked Schoolcraft to join his team.
“As you know, (Parnell) runs the feed store in New Martinsville and offers a diversity of backgrounds, adding depth and with the community as far as who we reach and how we reach them.”
Zechman is also adding to his team and will make announcements regarding those additions this week.
Several members of the Wetzel Chamber of Commerce, including President Don Riggenbach and Treasurer Eric Vincent, were present at Friday’s gathering to offer their support and congratulations to the new business.
West Virginia Senator Kent Leonhardt was also at the event, showing support.
“Congratulations to Steve for bringing jobs into the area during this transition. It’s going to take some time, but we have new jobs and businesses coming in. There are good things on the horizon. We just need to be patient and work together.”
