My wife and I were looking to purchase a building lot for our retirement in 4 years in Brevard, NC. We had some specific requirements. We contacted Billy and he showed us a wide variety of land meeting our needs. What became very evident quickly, as we talked and Billy got to know us better, additional ideas and thoughts were shared. Once we narrowed the lots to a few, Billy provided lots of details on each, e.g., history, past selling prices, comps, topographical drawings and HOA/POA information. Then the “magic” happened…. once we were ready to make an offer, his ideas, tactics and process saved used thousands of dollars. From offer to closing, 7 days !!! With out a doubt, if you want land, Billy is your one and only stop. He’s very knowledgeable, knows everyone and is very responsive.

We would definitely work with Billy again. He knows the Brevard area very well, and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. If you’re looking at land, he is not afraid to get his boot s muddy.
I always wanted a nice getaway in the Mountains. Being into Mountain Biking and Hiking, I thought the Brevard area would be the perfect spot for me. I started looking online for some property t o build a beautiful cabin in the future and quickly came across Billy’s listings and decided to just meet up with him to check out several properties. After driving around for 3 hours, I came to the realization that it is hard to find exactly what I was looking for. That was the point when Billy told me about Sutton Knob. I decided why not checking it out while up there. Not even 24hrs later I put in an offer. I just enjoy the fact that it feels like being in the mountains, even though the lot I bought has no long-range views. But just the drive up Ivy Ln gives you the "mountainy feeling" I also enjoy the huge community area Sutton Knob has to offer: picnic area, ponds, hiking trails etc. Another plus is the closeness to Brevard, Pisgah and Dupont, while still having the remote feel. Another shout goes out to Billy! I never felt pressured in buying anything and he was also a big help with permits and contractors or any questions after I signed the contract and he was technically done. I cannot wait to start building and spending my weekends in Sutton Knob with the pups.
