About The Area
Nestled in the Western North Carolina mountains are the small towns of Highlands and Cashiers. First founded at the turn of the century, the area became known for its clean air and cooler summer temperatures. Affluent families from the Northeast, including the Vanderbilt’s, flocked to the area in awe of its natural surroundings.
Today, the same tradition rings true. Whether visitors are drawn to the beauty of the Nantahala National Forest, waterfalls and hiking trails...or just a reprieve from the summer heat, our Plateau makes the ideal setting for a first, second or third home.
What Our Clients Say
“My husband and I were very happy to have John as our realtor. He was very helpful, proactive, and responsive through the whole process. We will highly recommend him!”
John was great. I was a buyer in a seller's market with very little inventory and then throw covid on top of that. He was very patient and lead me through the process.
Now, I have a beautiful new house in a very nice neighborhood.”
“John kept in touch with us with opportunities available in his area until we found one we liked. Then he went out, took pictures and Face-timed us to be sure before we made an offer. He was very attentive and helpful during the escrow period with our inspections and follow-up with the seller's commitments. He did all that was asked to ensure our satisfaction.”
“John was just great to work with along our long journey of finding the right home in Highlands. He was informed, patient, responsive and knowledgeable and was simply a pleasure to work with. Would absolutely use John again in the future. ”
