Rich Cooke and Laurel Park in the News

July 30, 2009

As I told you in my blog last week, Laurel Park was ranked #3 in the country for most affordable places to retire in the country.  As Town Commissioner, I was privileged to be interviewed about this announcement by BlueRidgeNow.com.  NeighborhoodScout.com, the company that compiled the list, scoured its database of over 61,000 communities and determined its most affordable places to retire in the country by comparing information gathered from the US Census Bureau, US Geological Service, FBI, Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight and the state and federal departments of education.  They also compared the median house prices, amenities offered, beautiful surroundings and crime statistics.  Laurel Park is a small town (with 1400 year-round residents and up to 2250 in the summer) and wants to keep the homey, small town feel.  NeighborhoodScout.com realized what I have known all along.  Laurel Park is a wonderful place to live and retire.  So, if you are looking for a beautiful, safe, affordable place to retire, please contact me.  I’ll be happy to show you all that Laurel Park has to offer.
