Raymond is an Atlanta native who grew up enjoying city life, as well as unwinding in the Cohutta Wilderness in North Georgia. So when he and his wife Julie decided to start a family they searched North Georgia and Western North Carolina extensively for the perfect, small but vibrant mountain town. All of their criteria was met in Brevard NC. His career began in Property Management and moved to Real Estate sales in 2004. Now with two energetic sons, three horses, one dog and the perfect mini-farm, Raymond and his family enjoy hiking, biking, camping and horse back riding in Pisgah National Forest or Dupont State forest. Raymond says "The quality of life here is unmatched. Let me help you find your perfect mountain property!"
Raymond's effort and resourcefulness proved invaluable as my family of five - including an infant - relocated to Brevard from several hundred miles away, over Christmas no less. Raymond led us through the process with ease, answered all our questions thoroughly, always responded to us immediately, and offered advice that ultimately landed us in the perfect home for us. I highly recommend Raymond and intend to rely on him as my Real Estate Agent for many years to come.

Raymond is extremely enthusiastic about Brevard, and working with him on our relocation was quite enjoyable! When we first met with Raymond we were undecided about which town in WNC we'd call home. Raymond was both down-to-earth and encouraging in his guidance and ultimately helped us choose Brevard, and we're SO glad we did. His knowledge of the local real estate market is impressive- he took us to several homes in-town as well as in nearby developments and was able to guide us in choosing the best home for our family. Raymond has connections with everyone involved in the process- from a mortgage lender to insurance agents to closing attorneys and inspectors. Everyone he suggested was very professional and made the entire process quite easy. We are living in our dream house in a neighborhood we just love, thanks to Raymond's encouragement and guidance!

We were delighted to work with Raymond Rainey and Steve Owen & Associates on the listing and selling of our new residential development, Brookside, in downtown Brevard. This was a unique project requiring a multi-layered marketing campaign, industry expertise, and client management across consecutive builds and individual floor plans. Raymond met the project with enthusiasm and worked diligently to ensure smooth transactions. He was invested from the start of each groundbreaking and competently managed prospective buyers, existing clients, and all associated questions. We are confident that Raymond and Steve Owen & Associates played a pivotal role in the success of the development.
