Carol is originally from Homestead, and Lee from North Miami Beach, Florida. Carol has always loved the mountains, having spent her childhood summers in Burnsville, NC at her grandparents home. After Lee and Carol were married every free holiday or vacation day was spent in these beautiful mountains. After deciding to leave big city life and come to a peaceful yet prospering area in which to make a living and raise their son, Brandon, they decided to move to Murphy in 1997. Their only regret has been that they didn't move sooner! In their spare time, they enjoy being with family, gardening, hiking and camping.

It's the Golden Rule.




We worked with Carol in 2006 to find and purchase our Mountain Chalet in Murphy, NC. Carol was the most professional, courteous, and knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with. We looked into at least 30 homes before we decided just what we wanted, and Carol was always available and courteous. We feel we were most fortunate in contacting the perfect agency and agent.
   In 2008, when we decided to find a home in Tennessee to plan for retirement, we did not consider working with anyone other than Carol. We found just the right home with her help, and our experience again was exceptional. Carol and Lee have become great friends that anyone would be fortunate to know, and work with. They both have gone well beyond our expectations during both of our home purchases.
   We are looking forward to relocating permanently to the area within the next two years. We could only hope to find someone like Carol & Lee to help us list and sell our Florida home.
   We refer everyone we meet interested in purchasing in the area to Carol without hesitation, knowing they will receive the same professional and courteous service we did.

     My wife and I fell in love with the Murphy, NC area; so much so that we decided to relocate to the Murphy area when we retire. Lee and his wife, Carol, helped to make our search for property easy.
   Lee was always informative, helpful and honest in our search for property. He worked around our schedule to show countless properties. One day after looking at several properties lunchtime approached and of course lee asked if we wanted to stop for lunch and we assured him we were fine to continue looking. Lee skipped lunch to allow us more time to look at additional properties. On another trip, Lee helped to entertain our 13 year old son who had accompanied us on this particular trip. Lee always put us first and looked out for our best interest.
   We will do business with Lee again; we currently have a contract pending on another piece of property in Murphy. This experience has been a blessing to us and Lee was an answer to our prayers.
-Danny & Dale Spain

 My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Carol in March of 2008. We walked into the office only knowing that we were interested in viewing property in the Murphy, NC area after having browsed the internet. We were warmly greeted by Carol, who immediately put us at ease. After discussing our interests and price range, Carol spent three days with us, taking us to a wide variety of existing homes and vacant properties. The day before we were scheduled to leave Murphy, we found the perfect piece of property and have since closed without any difficulties. We were amazed at how effortless the transaction was in purchasing our property. Carol kept us informed every step of the way and even went the extra mile by sharing recent photos of our property through email.
   Without hesitation, we would recommend Lee & Carol Barbour ~ The Mountain Living Team to anyone interested in buying real estate. Thank you for providing us with the best service possible and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
-Jim & Chris Rehak

    When arriving at the office we were always greeted with a smile and most importantly, phone calls were always promptly returned.
   After conducting many Real Estate transactions we were pleasantly surprised with the professionalism displayed by our agent Lee Barbour. It is our opinion that he surpassed by a large margin, what we had become used to. 
   Information lacking in the listing was researched by him and the staff. We were then called and kept up to date on the sale as it progressed.
-Ed & Elizabeth Cass

   Carol was great to work with. She worked very hard to get the job done! She has also been great working with my parents. She goes above and beyond. A rare quality indeed.
-Paul & Kay Scaglione

   You were very helpfull to me, especially being out of town. Very personable and a tremendous help. Always called back and did what they said they were going to do.
-Mary Norris

  It was a pleasant experience to walk into your office and be greated with a smile and very professional attitude.
-Gary St. Pierre

    The photography is awesome and the write up is terrific. Your marketing and advertising program is very impressive. Without a doubt we have chosen the best and most professional realtors to list our property with. Besides all that you and Lee are just good people.
-Steve & Pat Kirchhoff

  Everything was great. Carol went above and beyond her duties to help us in every aspect!
 -Rick Harjung

We just wanted to thank you for all your help in finding the right place for our next home. It has been such a pleasure sharing this with you. The trip was really more than we expected and that is because you took your time to organize and manage all the right homes to see. Thank you very much and we look forward to a wonderful friendship.
John & Barbara Scheller
