In the real estate profession many laws and rules are the same state to state.
While some rules and laws can vary agents/brokers are expected to be ethical nationwide.
Additionally, in North Carolina a real estate broker may represent either a buyer, a seller,
or even both in the same transaction as a dual agent.
When performing as a dual agent it is a requirement to treat both parties fairly and honestly.


It is important for you as a consumer whether you are a buyer, or seller,  
to understand the working relationship you can 
have with your broker.  
s a real estate broker I am required to provide you with consumer awareness information. 

“Working with Real Estate Agents” 
is a brochure explains the types of 
relationships brokers can have with buyers and sellers.
This brochure is not a contract, or any obligation requiring you to utilize a particular broker.

However, there is a requirement that you sign the brochure to acknowledge receiving it.

The signing of the brochure is a painless experience!



Over 90% of buyers utilize the internet in their search for a home.*
Only in the Mountains Realty website has a mobile application,
allowing you to view it from your cell phone for your convenience, too!


Appalachian Trail at Max Patch Bald

Looking for home or land to buy in the mountains?  

Be sure to plan your time here to allow for traveling on roads
that can be steep, and winding
(we can’t always drive at interstate road speeds),
and visiting properties that are not close to each other.

It can make for a long day looking at multiple properties, 
so as your real estate broker I want to be sure that you make
the most of your time.  
I usually have to schedule showings in advance through a showing service.

We can work together to make a schedule that will ensure you see the properties that interest you.



Our lives are continuously changing…
sometimes changes occur by circumstances that are beyond our control,
and sometimes they change by choice.

If you want additional information about the process of selling or buying real estate in North Carolina
send me an e-mail, and I’ll be happy to send you a brochure/s with the applicable information.

New in 2018, the N.C. Real Estate Commission has implemented a new form that’s mandatory
for sellers and buyers to sign. It provides information about wire fraud related to real estate closings,
i.e. transmitting of funds at settlement.
The Commission keeps consumers informed especially when new “scams” become apparent.
I provide the documents required in a transaction to be sure that you’re adequately informed
