In 2002 I joined Wakeman Realty after moving to Boone, NC from Florida. My background includes sales and sales management with The Sherwin Williams Company for 25 years.
After living in South Florida for many years I needed a cool place to escape to during the hot months in Florida. My wife and I looked at every town in the mountains of North Carolina for property, and when we came into Boone we knew we had found a new home. After taking an early retirement, we made Boone our full time home.
I take great pride in helping others who have the same dream we had of living in the mountains. Having built our home here on top of a mountain, I have the experience to help clients with buying a new home or buying land and having a home built.
Many of my clients have come here to buy or build vacation homes, and many want to buy land as an investment. Buying land in this beautiful mountain setting has proved very profitable for investors.
I am also a licensed broker in Tennessee which is only minutes from Boone. If you are looking for property that is either lakefront or with a lake view, beautiful Lake Watauga is close by. A benefit to living in Tennessee is that there is no state income tax.
Above all the quality of life here in Boone exceeds anything I could imagine. The new neighbors and new friends you will have make living in the Blue Ridge mountains a dream come true. Boone is the home of Appalachian State University which provides the town with a variety of cultural events and sports. The Blue Ridge Parkway has unlimited trails for hiking and just soaking up the scenery.
If you would like to become part of our mountain community, allow me to help you find your perfect property.
