Two Wisconsin Cheeseheads Escape To Kentucky... for Good!

 Cazz's Story...

Twas the day after Christmas

And we looked for a house

Around lovely Richmond town

With the sun shining down

Alright, enough with the poem, on with the story of how two Cheeseheads from Wisconsin came to live in beautiful Madison County.

On December 26, 2007, we arrived in Richmond, walked down Main Street in the late afternoon, and fell in love with the town. We found friendly people, especially at Chestnut Tree Gallery.  We were given the name of a local Realtor, Lizette Fitzpatrick, and the rest is history. 

She was personable and got right to work searching for the right home for us.  We had great conversations about how much we have loved Kentucky ever since visits here going back 20 years.  We had some things in common with Lizette, including a love of animals, music, art and cheese! 

Looking to escape the long, cold, snowy Wisconsin winters and high taxes, we are so excited to have discovered Richmond and this area. 

After several trips here and numerous emails, Lizette helped us to find our dream semi-retirement home in a north side subdivision.  We closed on the house April 28...also our 18th wedding anniversary.  Lizette has been great through the whole home buying experience, helping us at every step in the process.  She recommended good restaurants too!

Not only do we have a new home, we have a new friend...thank you Lizette!

Congratulations to everyone!  Kentucky is beautiful.  I am a relocated Cheesehead myself, and although we still love the Packers, I love the South!  In fact, I was back in Wisconsin last weekend for a family birthday party, and realized (too late) that I hadn't packed enough warm clothes.  It was good to get back to Atlanta, traffic and all!

Lenza - I think they are enjoying the change in weather. They have been like 2 kids in a candy store.

Linda - Funny how we get used to even the traffic jams in the south. I'm not complaining at all. I used to live in LA.  It's not bad at all compared to snow and being cold all the time.

Escape from Wisconsin?  Isnt that really bad action movie with Kurt Russell??  :-)

The saying is suppose to be Escape to Wisconsin, but, as the past winter snow was awful the saying should be Get out of Dodge Pilgrim! Any agents working south of the Mason Dixon line, be ready, all of those snow birds in Wisconsin that can exit will exit next year!
