To the Editor,
My husband and I recently moved to the Shoals area of Surry County. In our real estate search, I used the Register of Deeds Office on-line system to research the property we were considering.
After searching for land in adjacent counties for over two years, I can testify that the Surry County Register of Deeds Office provided absolutely the best services of any of the others. We have a first class system. I learned later that the efficient, modern, helpful department we have today has been led by Carolyn Comer, the Register of Deeds, for a number of years.
I was surprised to learn that this is an elected position, due to the skills involved. By re-electing Ms. Comer, Surry County residents will be sure that our property records are organized, protected and easy to access when needed.
