We’re proud of the team of agents we’ve assembled here at Nest Realty. We think they’re pretty awesome, and we think you will too. During our “Meet the Agent” series, we sit down with our agents to learn more about them, what makes them tick, and why they’re passionate about the real estate industry. In this installment, we chat with Erin Armentrout, an agent with Nest Realty in Staunton, Virginia.
Nest Realty: Tell us a bit about yourself! What brought you to Staunton?

Hoodies are my favorite article of clothing to wear in the fall and I can’t get enough of the cooler weather! Halloween, pumpkin spice, boots, comfy clothes, firepits…I could go on and on….
