Business leaders from the quaint town of Roanoke are looking to build upon its already vibrant community.    Several properties in downtown Roanoke are now on sale to attract new business and enhance the quality of life in Roanoke.   

Alice Eshelman is proud to call Roanoke home. She’s not only the president of the local chamber of commerce, but she’s also an owner of the fine dining restaurant  Joseph Decuis.

The Eshelman’s are a big reason behind Roanoke’s revitalization and success, but as Alice tells WFFT, her family can’t do it alone.   

“Now it’s time to encourage new growth and make it become the destination that it should,” said Eshelman. 

In order Roanoke  more attractive and bring in new business owners,  the Eshelman’s are putting six of their downtown properties up for sale. They called on Broker and owner of Reecer Properties James Reecer to get the job done.

“It’s a quaint town like I said a great destination for people to come and shop and live,” said
