With Love, Julie Roland Realty

We’ve got a lot of love for Chatham County residents and February is the perfect month to show it. By the numbers, last year, 41% of Americans said they would love to receive a gift of an experience. While billions of dollars are spent annually on chocolates and flowers, gifting a memory can be equally, if not more, special for your loved ones. If it’s a concert, a dinner at their favorite restaurant or a champagne toast by the fire, find new ways to celebrate love. We’ve got some ideas to get you started!
