    I was born in Georgia. Educated at UGA and spent 7 years in the restaurant business before chasing my dream to live in the beautiful mountains of Western Carolina. So off to Murphy me and my family came in 1998. Real Estate was just a natural for me. To be able to show off these beautiful mountains on a daily basis is a blessing, to get paid for doing it.........well that is just icing on the cake!

    Although the natural beauty of this area is consuming and captivating, the friendliness with which you are treated by the local folks make you just want to stay. Visiting the mountains on vacation is common for many people. More people are buying land as an investment, a retirement place, a cabin to rent, or simply a home to enjoy. With real estate being one of the safest investments my job is too easy.

    I "show" real estate as opposed to "selling" it. When the fireworks go off you will know it. I always have a good time showing off these beautiful mountains and am truly blessed to be able to call Murphy, North Carolina home. My love for the area and for the business of helping the dreams of others come true makes me qualified to help you. So, give me a call or send an email and I will be happy to help!

    I have been described as a man of high energy! To quote a fellow friend & realtor..."Dex makes coffee nervous". My zest for life, love for my family and friends mirror my dedication to my profession as a Real Estate Agent.

    I have been a constant top seller & top listing agent and owe my success to the fact that I love my job and enjoy meeting new people. I don't like to label myself a salesman; I just feel it's an honor to show my clients all of the beautiful homes and properties that they're considering, and then I just let things flow naturally from there. As a listing agent, my clients come first. I make it a priority to keep in touch with my clients, inform them of any interest in their property, and keep them abreast of all advertising. I always provide the finest real estate service available based on the highest standard of ethics, values, and customer satisfaction.

    When hiring a real estate agent you need to know that he will work for you.  Below are a few of my real estate achievements:

    • Lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club
    • Short Sales & Foreclosure Specialist
    • Second highest in commissions paid for Commercial RE for state of NC in 2012
    • Sold over 100 properties in 2012 (land, houses, and commercial)


    Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you and remember that results matter and numbers add up!

     Donna Srabian is an extraordinarily talented Buyer’s Agent with an uncanny knack for finding exactly the right property for each client. After Donna listens carefully to her buyer’s needs, she begins her targeted property search, focusing first on The Poltrock Team’s listings. So, our sellers can rest assured that their home, commercial building, or land parcel will always receive first consideration among relevant properties.

    If Donna doesn’t quickly experience an “Aha!” moment, she scans additional residential or commercial properties within the same parameters. After searching the entire regional market, she selects properties that she can confidently show to her clients.

    When Donna’s not working with The Poltrock Team, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband John. She also takes every opportunity to visit her five children and eight energetic grandkids, who range from 1 to 10 years of age. Champ and Honey, Donna’s two beloved dogs, round out this lively family.

    Born and raised in Murphy, NC, I have spent my life falling in love with the mountains. 

    Growing up I spent countless hours in these mountains and mountain waters, and now I am blessed to watch my kids and grandkids grow up in these mountains as well. I have 2 silly kids; my daughter Hailey is 14 and my son Zeke is 10. Last year I married my husband, Mark, who blessed me with my step-son, 2 grandsons, and another grandson to be born in July. It's a crazy good life I live here in the NC mountains! 

    I have been a licensed real estate agent in Murphy, NC for over 10 years now, working in different areas of the market. I spent a couple of years focusing solely on learning the ins and outs of the foreclosure industry and this has proven to be a tremendous asset to my buyers. I love first time home buyers wanting to start their adult life in my hometown. I also, thoroughly enjoy working with my second home buyers and retirees, who are looking for a retreat away from the city life. My love and knowledge of this area and the experience I have working with local lenders, appraisers, inspectors, builders, and other professionals equip me to go above and beyond for my buyers and sellers.

    While obtaining my Bachelors Degree from Western Carolina University in Hospitality Management/Tourism, I started working for Dex Hubbard at Re/Max Mountain Properties.  In working closely with these professionals, I found that I loved everything about real estate and I knew I'd found my niche.  Whether it be helping first time buyers find their forever home or assisting sellers begin a new chapter in their lives by helping them sell, I wanted to be apart of it.

    I embarked on the journey of pursuing my real estate license in January of 2017.  By April 2017, I was thrilled to receive my license!  I'm so excited to begin the next phase of this crazy ride we call LIFE.  I was born and raised in this beautiful county and can't wait to share my love for the area with others so they can fall in love with it too.  I live here now with my husband, Zack, and our one pup.  If I had to tell prospective clients one thing about myself, it would be that I'm a people person; I love working with, and for, people with the ultimate goal of helping them find their dream home.

    I joined Kelly Hopkins and Associates Mountain Leisure Team in early 2018, but have been visiting Murphy since 1998 when members of my family relocated to this beautiful area. As a latecomer to the team, I bring several decades of experience and passion in client relations,customer care and risk management from the corporate world. Transitioning into real estate has been a perfect fit for me, as I am a serious people person!

    I am a licensed realtor in both Georgia and North Carolina. I have a strong passion for quality services and bring my "A" game to each and every customer I touch. I enjoy spending time working with buyers as well as supporting the broader team with print marketing and listing coordination. 

    Long term relationship management is a fundamental pillar of services on the Kelly Hopkins team. Many of our customers become friends and much of our business is repeat or client referral. Excellence, personal service, and genuine customer satisfaction is our credo. We live it every day, treating our customers with the care, honesty and sincerity that we would want given to ourselves!

    I am a native Georgian and a proud UGA alumni, but my previous life took me to a number of places in this wonderful country. In 2017, my family and I were fortunate enough to be able to follow our dreams and relocate here to stay! I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and a teen son who made the journey with me.

    I cannot wait to meet you, and look forward to being able to help you move to this beautiful area!
