I came to Murphy, North Carolina from Florida 7 years ago and found an undiscovered treasure - an area filled with spring-fed lakes, National Forest Service land and incredible mountain views. In addition, we're only 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Asheville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The mild 4 season climate, good schools and great prices on real estate convinced me to move here full time, along with my husband and our two youngest children.
I entered the real estate business over 30 years ago in Michigan, where I earned the CCIM designation (Certified Commercial Investment Member) working with investors and developers. Later I became a snowbird, dividing my time between Traverse City, Michigan and Key Largo, Florida. While in the Keys, I worked as an interior designer at Ocean Reef.
