The most followed real estate brand in the mountains, delivering proven results for buyers & sellers in the mountains of Northeast Georgia and Western North Carolina.

Before helping folks buying and selling real estate in the Georgia and North Carolina mountains, I practiced law in my home state of Florida for over a decade. My area of practice was civil litigation. Although financially rewarding, the practice of law was not a passion for me. While still a practicing attorney, I began to invest in real estate in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia and Western North Carolina.

My family and I would make several visits to the mountains to enjoy the sceneries and its beauty. Ultimately, I followed my passion and moved to the mountains. I love it here!

My wife, Cathy and I love exploring the hidden gems here in the mountains; between the local food, beautiful mountain views, and year-round recreation living in the mountains is a preferred lifestyle for many! From the people to the local businesses, and the non-profits - this is what makes living in the mountains so unique.
