Get to Know Hugh Rees-Jones

We followed a rather unique route to the mountains, namely across the oceans!

Still interested? Here's what happened....we quit our jobs in 2003, sold everything including the dream home on the water in SC, bought a 44' sailboat, and took off for 2+ years cruising and living aboard as a family, which was a priceless experience for us. During that time, we took a break for a week, and came up to Boone to stay in a friends cabin....and went out with a realtor, "just for fun", as we are real estate junkies at heart.

You guessed it, we found a deal on a small vacation cabin in the woods, and bought it on the spot. Crazy? Well maybe, but its funny how things work out, because at the end of our cruise, we had presold our yacht for delivery as soon as we arrived back to our home port (that's very rare in the boating world!). So, we came up to our little cabin to figure out the next move....and we simply have never left. Its been nearly 4 years already and we are still in love with the place. We are on our second home up here now, renovating as we go along, and enjoying life with our kids, and the warmth and hospitality of about everyone we have met along the way.

Why choose me as your realtor??....maybe you want total honesty, trustworthiness, someone responsive to your needs, who will follow-up and provide feedback, or maybe you'll just like my accent, as I like yours....I'm originally from New Zealand, and it hasnt worn off in 23+ years living in the USA....and the number one question I get up here,....is why leave down there? Well, Ashe County is very much like home...simply spectacular, and wonderful people!

So thats it, no high pressure, no games, I tell it like it is, and treat every deal like it was my own, so if you appreciate that in a realtor, then please give me a call or drop me an email.

Either way, I wish you all the best in your search, Hugh


There are loads of realtors out there, all touting their unique experience and qualifications, so I'll keep it brief.

I'm a Chartered Accountant by profession (similar to CPA), and spent the last 12 years of my previous life as a VP/CFO of a large privately held real estate investment and development group in SC, before heading out to sea.

I have many years of experience and exposure to all facets of real estate, from the financial and management perspective, to marketing and sales, to commercial, office, industrial warehousing, retail, and resort development, as well as hands on experience in residential construction and remodelling. That's about it, covers all bases pretty much.

Enough said, read how we got here and if you think we'll click, then call or email. I know I can help YOU!
