Welcome To Palmer House Properties

We are a professional real estate services firm committed to putting our clients first and operating with unquestionable integrity. Our team is comprised of experienced professionals with extensive market knowledge in the mountains of Western North Carolina and Northeast Georgia. We measure our success based on the relationships we build, not the sales we achieve. This philosophy has resulted in relationships that last a lifetime and often span generations. Come visit and let us elevate your expectations.

Come for the Summer- Stay for a Lifetime

We specialize in the charming mountain communities of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Sitting on a high plateau, summer temperatures here are much cooler than the rest of the South with average high temps of 78 degrees. Rainfall is plentiful creating a lush, botanical wonder for nature lovers. Quaint towns like Highlands and Cashiers offer first-class shopping, dining and recreational activities which is why Southern Living chose the area as a Top 5 Small Town Getaway.

From the first day, Clif knew what we were and were not looking for. He did not waste time showing us properties that did not fit our parameters. His knowledge of the buyers’ market and rental market gave us a lot of confidence in him. By the time we closed on our perfect home we felt like Clif was family.

Doug is an expert in the Highlands/Cashiers area and above all, he operates with integrity and will not just tell me what I want to hear to make the sale. I have referred him to my family and clients. He has become not only my realtor, but a friend. I would highly recommend him any day.

Doug’s patience, professionalism and integrity make him a rock star in this market. When we did find the perfect house for us, Doug’s expertise made the closing effortless, he handled every detail. Doug has continued to be an invaluable resource for us as new homeowners. But best of all, Doug has become a dear friend through this process.

I have been a Realtor in Florida for 40 years, so I feel I am qualified to recognize an exceptional Realtor when I see one. We were utterly amazed and thrilled by the treatment we received from Doug. We found an extremely exceptional Realtor and gained a wonderful friend.

Doug helped us find our dream home in Highlands, North Carolina! He worked tirelessly to make it happen for us. He sold our existing house in 2 days making it possible to buy our current home. He is an excellent realtor and a great resource for the Highlands/Cashiers area. We WILL use Doug when we purchase our next home!
