As a buyers agent it is my job to find the BEST DEALS for my Real Estate Buying Clients. I keep my ears and eyes open. I converse with all the local bankers in regards to their inventory that they have taken back. I talk and stay in contact with the Developers and Builders in my Western NC area. I have information that the majority of other agents in my area DON'T HAVE. Whether it be a Foreclosure, Attempted Short Sale, Developer needing cash flow, or any other number of non material facts that I am privy to; THEN this is a Great Reason to contact me. If you have any questions about Buyers Agency, Sellers Agency or Dual agency then contact me and I will provide a brochure and gladly explain. There are deals on Water Front Properties, Lake Front properties, Lake view properties, AWESOME Mountain View properties, Creek and River properties and INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES that our area has not seen in decades. My knowledge of these properties is in Murphy, NC, Andrews, NC, Marble, NC, Brasstown, NC, Hayesville, NC, Robbinsville, NC, and Nantahala, NC. The lakes I have information on are Lake Hiawassee, Lake Notley, Lake Appalachain, Lake Chatuge, Lake Nantahala, Lake Santeetlah, Lake Fontana, and Lake Wells And Tanglewood Lake. Call me about my inside KNOWLEDGE.

Looking for property

by

I just want to jot a note to you all. Today is another beautiful day in Murphy. It is around 65 degrees and the sun is shining. If I was retired or on vacation, I would have found my way to one of our local golf courses. Anyway, I was showing some real estate this morning to a young lady from the Tampa area. It was a real pleasure. We traveled some of our picturesque roads. We went past some beautiful pastures, some gorgeous mountain views and our own Lake Hiwassee. We were looking at a couple of bargain lots that we have for sale. She had found them on another website, which is OK. Not everyone has found our site, yet. Neither one was quite what she was looking for. The good thing is that now I know what she is wanting. I think I  found one for her after she left. She plans to stop back in tomorrow to look. Feel free to call me if you want me to help you find your next place.

RE/MAX Agent Business Trip

by
Went to Gulf Shores, Alabama This past week end. Met several RE/MAX Agents while I was gone. The  weather was wonderful. I enjoyed the time away from work as our area is picking up and have been busy. Brought back fresh sea food and grilled Flounder and had some deep water shrimp ( Big Reds ) . I also bought two nice Scamps. The drive back to the mountains was beautiful. A bright sunny day was what we were greeted with. It is great to be back home in the Western North Carolina Mountains.

Western North Carolina Mountains

by

The mountains of western North Carolina are so beautiful.  At certain times of the day "purple mountains majesty" becomes a realty to those that look up and take notice.

Lakes, creeks and streams abound throughout this glorious piece of real estate that includes Murphy, Andrews, Marble, Topton, Culberson and Hayesville.  Carolina blue skies isn't just a cliche, they are beautifully real.  Who wouldn't want to see all of this every day?

Mountain chalets, rustic cabins and family style homes all meld together to form a gracious and friendly community with caring people.  Second homes or as some say, vacation hmes, are a great part of this mountain area of the Smokey Mountains.  The Appalachian mountain folklore can still be heard and the roots of the proud people who settled this area are evident in many ways.

Bargains, good deals and exceptional values in homes and land can be found.  Prices are down considerably from two years ago.  Now is the time to make your investment in these mountains.  You will enjoy a good investment for your pleasure or experience a profit down the road when you decide to sell.

RE/MAX Mountain Properties has qualified, experienced, friendly realtors ready to make your dream of having mountain property come true.  Call us today and see what we can do fo ryou.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Priced To sale

by
Listed a 30+ - acre parcel this week that has a noisy creek running through it , with awesome views. The land has approximately 1300 feet of creek. I reduced prices on several listings as sellers are motivated. Sent a commercial request to an up and coming restaurant chain along with another business that is seeking a  commercial location in our area. Played golf Monday at the Cherokee Hills Golf Course , which I understand from a members meeting is in the process of being bought . The group that is in the process of purchasing the Cherokee Hills Golf course has plans of redoing the course with the help of  the Davis Love the Third golf design team. Buyers are starting to stir as they believe the time is right to buy. There were two vacation rental clients that have booked a georgeous creek cabin this week. This is going to be a great year for all of us at Remax Mountain Properties and don't let the opportunities that are here pass you by. Signed Dex Hubbard Sr. Broker

A Day in Murphy, NC is a Good Day

by
This morning I traveled out of my garage and immediately noticed the ruby sky turning to blue as the sun was rising over the Western Carolina mountains.  I thought to myself:  If I wasn't blessed enough to live here I would move here!  My day was filled  enjoying the views of the Hiawassee River and the Fires Creek Mountains along the way as I drove through Brasstown's John C. Campbell Folk School and onward to the neighboring town of Hayesville.  After moving through Hayesville I traveled Tusquittee Road and just got my breath taken away by the beauty of the Tusquittee mountains and Tusquittee Creek!  I am sure where most folks live is pretty but in the Western Carolina Mountains we take the beauty of our surroundings for granted not!  We count our blessings and enjoy them everyday!  I just thought I would share.................

I was sitting in my RE/MAX Mountain Properties office a few minutes ago when I heard a helicopter flying very low and coming right over the top of the RE/MAX building.  Upon further inspection I realized it was the medical helicopter.  It landed in the vacant field next to the office and was soon among an ambulance, firetruck and other law inforcement vehicles which had arrived.  In a few minutes, the very efficient personnel on scene had loaded the patient from the ambulance onto the helicopter and it lifted off on its trip back to Chattanooga.  All of this made me start thinking about how fortunate we are to live in a rural setting surrounded by these beautiful, remote mountains, which are now beginning to show the first signs of Spring, and still be within minutes of some of the best medical care anywhere around.  So if you've wanted to have a home or second home here but hesitated because of lack of medical facilities, keep this incident in mind.  The daffodils are starting to show their beautiful color as the days get warmer and its all about new beginnings as Spring is just around the corner.  Hope to hear from you if you have been thinking of coming to these terrific Western North Carolina mountains near Murphy, Andrews or any of the other friendly mountain communities nearby.  Just call or email if I can be of any help to you in your search for a home.  Sherry McCollum,  Associate Broker with RE/MAX Mountain Properties  Toll free 1-877-837-3002   Email:  Sherrymccollum@remax.net

Blessed To Be In The Mountains

by

 

Worked this weekend in beautiful Graham County NC, Home of the Tail of the Dragon, Lake Santeetlah and Lake Fontana.  Stayed at the best Rental Cabin, that had a roaring creek with an outside and inside fireplace that crackled my worries away. Went up on the best Trout Stream in Western NC; Little Snowbird Creek, and looked at a gorgeous waterfall and pond that a seller had put in and was it awesome. Met a land developer from Hernando Florida and a property owner that showed me  the best Creek Lot on Little Snowbird and he also told me about another one in Snowbird Woods in Big Snowbird.  There were several jeeps and hybrids cruising the trails that I was fortunate enough to be able to travel. The sun was bright and I got some great pictures. Hiked up another large track of land off the Tail of The Dragon, that had an old farmhouse , the land bordered United States Forest Service, which added value to the parcel . Had dinner in Fontana Village and enjoyed the ride through the Hell Bender. Saw several fishermen on the lakes I passed and the day did not seem like work; more a peaceful day enjoying the view of our beautiful Smoky Mountains. It is HEAVEN to live where work seems like a vacation.  I will try to eat at the Snowbird Lodge and the Blue Boar Inn the next time I'm in Robbinsville, NC . Everyone should know that there are hidden jewels here in our Mountains.  Signed Dex Hubbard Sr. , Broker
 
 
 

Big Mistakes are made "by owner"!

by
I consider myself to be an expert on Real Estate here in Murphy, NC area.  I have spent a great deal of money and time to get my education and experience. That said: I would never consider going into a strange area or new area to me and purchasing property without a Realtor!  I want representation.  When you own the property is not the time to discover that you have a problem.  Did I pay too much when I bought?  Am I getting enough when I sell?  Many times in a by owner deal the answers to those questions are not appealing and worse yet there might be a problem with the property that might have been discovered by a little direction of a pro. 

Did you know that almost all of the time the seller pays real estate commission?  So by finding the property on your own, listed by an owner you put yourself in an unrepresented situation to make one of the largest investments of your life and have you saved money?  Seller pays commission right? We will represent you for free and have the seller pay our commission.      We will work hard to get you the best deal on a View Lot, Mountain Cabin, or commercial property we can find.  We will assist you through negotiation, investigation of the property and title, and closing so you have a free and clear title. 

So, next time you are in Murphy, stop by and say hello and don't make a big mistake when you are here.

Enjoying our weather

by

I just wanted to let everyone know how I enjoy the weather here in Murphy. we do have all four seasons. They just are not as severe as other locations. This winter has seemed colder than usual, but I have only had two mornings when I woke up to single digit readings on my thermometer. The past two days we have nearly reached 70 degrees. We had many people enjoy the local golf courses. When it is warm and bright, we can still enjoy the beautiful mountain and lake views.

Since the leaves have fallen, we also get to see a number of homes that are hidden in the spring, summer and fall. It almost seems like a different place; still beautiful, just different. This is a great time of year to look for either homes that are for sale or that perfect lot or acreage. You can see what your place will truly border.

Wish you were here.
