Why Elevated Properties? – A Buyer’s Perspective

Purchasing real estate is one of the largest financial commitments that many of us will undertake. It is also a very personal and emotional exercise requiring consideration of lifestyle, community, and personal factors that weigh into the decision-making process. We understand that having a trusted advisor who understand the market and your needs is critical. We also believe the process should be fun! Many of our clients become friends and their families become multi-generational clients. We genuinely believe that he depth and length of these relationships should be how we measure the success of our business, not sales volume.

But don’t take our word for it, here is what our clients have to say:

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! Kim

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. – Marty B.

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. Kristy F.

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. Sue K.

Clif really listened to understand what was important to us and used his knowledge of the area to find us the perfect home. He was incredibly responsive, researched the information we needed to make a wise decision and helped us through to the very end.  – Lisa S.

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. Sharmon and Jerry

We could not be more pleased with the entire process working with Doug. He was courteous, professional, available to answer questions, fun to work with and truly concerned with making sure we were happy with the price and property that we purchased! We cannot recommend him highly enough! Ronn and Misty
