Being a Realtor in Murphy, NC is the profession we’ve chosen and we love working together as The Mountain Living Team. While we love listing and marketing properties for our Sellers, our true passion is working with Buyers, especially those from out of state or not familiar with our area, lifestyle and all these beautiful mountains have to offer.
We truly understand all the differences, details and questions you’ll have in finding and living in a smaller mountain community. Many have never experienced living in an area with four seasons, but we assure you you’ll love getting used to it.
So back to our surprise…We worked with Don and Bonnie, a great couple from Florida to help them find a home here in Cherokee County, NC and the surrounding north GA areas. They will retire in a few years, but with so many great values on the market and some of the best interest rates in decades, they decided it was the right time and opportunity to buy their mountain home.
Like most buyers they had certain requirements for the perfect home. Tops on their list were room for their RV, easy access and a garage and workshop for Don. Bonnie would love a big kitchen and really wanted a dining room with plenty of room for all the family and friends that would be spending time with them. But there was one other thing that Bonnie needed and that was going to be a special room for her quilting machine.
Lee and I emailed them many homes that looked promising and then we’d go out and take lots of photos of the home and surrounding area as well as measure the rooms to accommodate the quilting machine.
Well, it took time, but Don and Bonnie now have the home that is all they wanted and maybe even a little more. I stopped by to see them on their latest trip up and was so surprised at the lovely and thoughtful gift they presented us. This gorgeous quilt had all the colors I love, greens, browns, mustard and oranges. How did Bonnie know it would be so perfect in our home?
So this was a great surprise, but really the best “payday” for us is working with and getting to know great Clients that become great Friends. Thank you so much Don & Bonnie!
