Every Buyers Agent is different when it comes to their clients but if you want repeat business and referrals you better be doing something other than order taking.

  This just in from brand new homeowners in Franklin, North Carolina...two tree dudes have taken up residence in their neighborhood.  Kathy and Bob first became acquainted with tree dudes when we were working together to find them the perfect mountain getaway.  Since then, they've been eager to encounter others but until today the tree dudes have proven to be quite elusive.     According to the email I received from Kathy just a little while ago, she and Bob decided to do a little fishing today at Lake Glenville just outside of Cashiers.  When they finished at Lake Glenville, they went to Cashiers to do a little exploring and shopping.  They thought they'd gotten a glimpse of a couple of tree dudes paying particular attention to them but didn't think much about it until after they'd got...

Nantahala River | Rainbow Springs | Franklin, NC  It is one of the most special places around here to a selected few who are fortunate enough to own property in there.  It is surrounded by the US Forestry Service lands and the Nantahala River flows right threw it into the Nantahala Lake and on to Fontana Dam.  The Nantahala River in Rainbow Springs is NOT a “fly-fishing only” stream nor is it “catch & release” stream. The NC “wild trout natural bait waters” “single hook” mountain trout regulations apply, which means it is open for fishing year round, day light hours only, bait is allowed, no treble hooks, and the daily limit is 4 trout over 7 inches per property owner. Some property owners believe because it is private waters and stocked privately, those regulations do not apply.  It is...
