  To view the Fair: http://www.realestateshows.com/321567  The Nevada County Fair is a high point for local residents and visitors alike.  This event will remind you of another era, where 4H and FFA participants deplay their livestock to adults who bring their pies and vegetables to be judged.  If you grew up in small town American, you will take a trip down memory lane when viewing this.  Give me a call, I would love to show you our beautiful area.

It's funny how word of mouth advertising works. We started out doing maybe one virtual tour a month, which was fine for us starting off since we specialized in wedding video, etc. We had one client who suggested our virtual tour services to another realtor, who in return told three other realtors (that I know of). Needless to say... virtual tours are not just a little product that we are offering on the side. They have become a major product that we offer. And it all started off with one person telling another. So, the moral of the story... do your tours right, treat your clients right, and with a little time... the business will start rolling in.  For more information, please visit our website.

There are some great places on the internet to find useful information about the city of Grass Valley CA. I have compiled a few of my favorite ones so you have a helpful directory. You could search for "Grass Valley" on Google but a lot of the results you would get might not be that great and you'd have to go through them all yourself.Grass Valley is located in "Gold Country" in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Nevada County California North East of Sacramento and San Francisco. This area is rich in history and the surrounding region reminds the visitor of days of old but it is a living community very much integrated into the technology of cameras, the internet and today's world.Community LinksGrass Valley DirectoryThis is my compellation of many of the hotels, motels, restaurants, airpor...

Grass Valley is the leading manufacturer of a large array of high level broadcast, television, and film production equipment. I'm not speaking of the city Grass Valley in Nevada County but rather of the company that produces these broadcast products called "Grass Valley Thomson". For broadcasters and cinematographers around the world Grass Valley Thomson digital cameras have become the standard in the industry with stores all around the country carrying their camera equipment, switchers, cameras, and also the Indigo AV Mixer. For more information go to thomsongrassvalley.com As a Grass Valley Real Estate agent it interests me to know about all these interesting little tid-bits of information that relate to my market and hope you find this interesting as well. Thank you, Alan Savage

Grass Valley is a wonderful city in Nevada County California gold country. It's current population is approximately 12,000 people. Grass Valley was founded during the California Gold Rush, as was neighboring Nevada City. It is the location of the Empire Mine, which is one of the richest mines in California.Times were hard in the early days of Grass Valley California - the territory had to be cleared so houses could be built. Trees were cut down, burned or turned into lumber to build the homes and schools. Very little was wasted and the quality of life in Nevada County began to steadily develop. Water had to be carried by nearby springs prior to wells being dug. Stones were cut and shaped, and crops were sown and harvested by hand. The name Grassy Valley seemed appropriate when immigrant...
