from Coral Gables, FL
On my retirement from an intense thirty-year counseling career five years ago, my wife and I looked all over Western North Carolina for a summer home in the cool NC mountains. We wanted to get out of the Florida heat and find a peaceful place to pursue our interests. After looking at many other areas, our search was over when we found Mountain Laurel Realty. We rented for a season first and fell in love with the climate, the area, the lifestyle, the value and especially the people. By the end of that summer we purchased a beautiful home through Jane Wallin at Mountain Laurel Realty. The home had been constructed by Wallin Builders several years earlier and we engaged Freddie Wallin to remodel it to suit our needs over the following winter. The best thing about our experience with Mountain Laurel Realty was Jane’s “straight talk”, honesty, expertise and knowledge of the area. We have also discovered that the Wallins’ commitment and services didn’t end with the sale. We continue to receive excellent services in maintaining our home while we are away with their typical superb responsiveness and high quality. Jane and Freddie have both become “friends”you can count on.
