About Us . . . 

Our company is about North Carolina land – ONLY NC land! We don’t sell homes, nor do we sell shopping centers. We sell only the very largest NC land tracts our NC mountains have to offer.

We’re local! We live and work in the heart of our nine-county NC Land market, right on U.S. Highway 421 between Boone and Wilkesboro.

We’re experienced! We’ve been selling NC land for 49+ years. We’re also stewards of our own personal NC landparcels – so we appreciate what it means to be a landowner.

North Carolina Mountain Land – How we show land


Regardless of how much you enjoy the outdoors, you may not be into strenuous hiking.  That’s why we show most properties from the comfort and convenience of our Polaris Ranger.  The Ranger rides like a golf cart – on steroids – and goes anywhere. It has a comfortable bench seat, and we can handle as many as two adults up front, plus three full-grown teens in the back.  On most properties very little hiking is required.   Why, you ask?


The North Carolina mountains are well-known for growing some of the best hardwood trees in the U.S. That is why the furniture industry got its start here in the North Carolina mountains.  With annual rainfall of 50”, the climate is perfect for growing Red Oak, White Oak,  Maple, Poplar, Eastern White Pine, and many other popular species.  


As a result of generations of timber harvesting, many logging roads are left behind.  These are the trails created by loggers to remove the timber during its last cutting.  The logging trails leave behind fantastic hiking and ATV trails, so our Ranger can access almost all properties on the Ranger.  If you prefer hiking, we can do that also, however the Ranger provides a more enjoyable, less strenuous method of seeing our properties.


If you are seriously committed to buying NC mountain land, take the easy route by choosing a broker who not only has 49 years selling North Carolina mountain land.  But wait!  There’s more. Choose a land broker who believes in land, as evidenced by his personal ownership of Ghost Valley, his own 386 acre homeplace.
