Bernie works with both buyers and sellers to understand what their lifestyle is and how best to accommodate that - whether it’s by building a custom home, buying a pre-owned or newly built home, or finding that perfect piece of land on which to build. Bernie also specializes in finding and selling resort, vacation, and second homes - especially those with mountain views and lake- and stream-side properties. With more than 20 years in the hospitality industry in addition to his real estate career, he truly understands customer service and wants to help his clients find the perfect place to call home. Bernie has lived in North Carolina his entire life and now calls Sylva home. He is passionate about his love for the outdoor opportunities offered in Western North Carolina, and thinks the “mountains possess an energy that lets you feel and breathe and get the most out of every day!” His hobbies include snow skiing, trout fishing, camping, hiking, and kayaking.
Bernie is extremely knowledgeable of the area and the process of buying/selling. He kept us informed on how the purchase was progressing and did everything in a timely manner. I will use Bernie again!
I am closing my house today and the one person I could have not done without is Bernie. This man brought everything together and really saw the deal through the end. If you are looking for a top notch realtor Bernie is your man.
Bernie is absolutely the best. He helped us buy our house in Bear Lake. He is responsive, knowledgeable and goes the extra mile. He is the best agent we have ever had. He truly cares about doing a great job!
