Did you know that more than 50% of all real estate sold in western
North Carolina is sold to someone in Florida?
Floridians have long enjoyed the cool summers and gorgeous autumns in
the North Carolina mountains for many reasons... mostly, location!
Within a half days drive from nearly all areas in Florida, the mountains of
North Carolina are closer, cooler and more beautiful than almost any other
mountain locations in the United States.
“Halfbacks” are what the locals call us. ie: Floridians originally from
the far northern frigid regions who, after living through a few Florida
summers, come halfway back and purchase property in the more temperate
North Carolina Mountains.
I too am from Florida. A Sanibel Island resident since 1979, my wife and I
fell in love with the Lake Glenville/Cashiers area and bought what our
children refer to as our “Mountain House” back in 1988. We love the
mountain lifestyle... and I believe that is exactly what most Floridians are
also looking for.
With my years of successful Real Estate experience, and my years of
mountain experience, I am now enjoying helping other Florida residents
in their search for the right property for them!
Let’s face it... dozens of large developments are flooding the media with
homes and lot sales at presumably “bargain prices” in many supposedly
mountain locations from Tennessee to Georgia. There is a difference!
Location and elevation are key elements to know and research.
Contrary to some rumors, the Highlands-Cashiers-Sapphire Valley-
Lake Glenville-Lake Toxaway & surrounding areas have homes, condos
and buildable lots in all price ranges!
I hope this website will assist you and help educate as well. The virtual
tours of every subdivision and development will give you a real “feel” for
what that particular location offers.
Of course, If I can help, please email or call me with any request...
there’s no obligation.
