"Well, the whole thing is..."
...if you ever met our family patriarch and the founder of Blue Spruce Realty, Gary Foote, that is probably the first phrase you will recall about him. Gary met his wife, our mother, by selling her a car, a VW bug as it turned out. He then proceeded to buy and sell land and camps as an investment vehicle, the beginnings of what is now Blue Spruce Realty today. Gary remains active in the business, keeping us on the straight and narrow. And, while other agents and brokers celebrate occasional repeat business, we can claim that we have sold and resold some properties 3 or 4 times now, and that most people who ever worked with us, even if we were representing the "other" side, have come back for repeat business, over and over again. Our values, as a family business, stick; -- deliver value, think out of the box (ask us about the "mullet house"), and be customer-centric to a fault.
Delivering value is not just showing you what you ask for, it's understanding your intent, and proposing a working solution. You may be looking for a home with a garage, but based on our experience, we may know that within your price range you might be better off buying a house without a garage and building it later.
INNOVATIVE & FUN
We've already highlighted the "Mullet House" story -- how we had fun being innovative with a very specific property. That's how we think and operate. All.The.Time.
We're not just going to show you what you asked for, or promote what you told us. We know too much to do that.

Blue Spruce Realty goes above and beyond the call of duty. You get more than just a realtor when working with Don Foote. He will help you with whatever it takes to buy or sell your new home. I have contracted with Don on more than one occasion because I know that he will make sure I'm taken care of from start to finish. I highly recommend Don Foote at Blue Spruce, he always operates with your best interests in mind.
Don Foote worked tirelessly and put forth tremendous effort to sell my house. This was a very difficult short sale and the lender threw up every roadblock they could think of to derail the sale. Don responded to every additional request the lender sent quickly and thoroughly. He was able to navigate the process set forth by the lender flawlessly. He was able to coordinate and manage information between me, the buyer, and attorneys without fail. He is as honest as they come and his passion for real estate is obvious when you talk to him. I would hire Don Foote in a second if I ever needed his services again.
"Amber was very knowledgeable of the area and the business. She was very responsive with all forms of communications to help move everything along and keep all forms organized."
My husband and I realize how fortunate we were to have had Gary and his team at Blue Spruce make our first home buying experience absolutely wonderful!
Amber is very professional and a pleasure to work with. She explains in detail and makes sure you understand all of the steps going forward. Amber will always return your calls the same day that you reach out. I highly recommend her if you are thinking about buying or selling.
We worked with Amber at Blue Spruce for almost nine months to find our home. Amber must have shown us 50 houses at our request and she never lost hope or energy. She even helped us with a for sale by owner house that we almost bought. The family-business environment at Blue Spruce is fantastic too. We felt like everyone was pulling for us throughout an exhausting house hunt. Amber is professional, punctual, and super kind and easy to work with. We would recommend Blue Spruce to anyone, absolutely.
Amber Foote is a powerhouse. She was our family’s advocate through an almost year-long search for our home. She responded timely (if not immediately!) to our endless questions, took us to each and every property we wanted to see and was the voice of reason whenever we approached desperation. Amber was honest, kind and knowledgeable on each and every point through our whole process. I can’t recommend her enough!
