Wayne joined Steve Owen & Associates in July, 2010 and has been an active Real Estate Broker since March, 2006. He and his wife (Dee) retired to Transylvania County in 2005 and has a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri @ Rolla, served three years as an Army Officer, and thirty three years working for several Food Processing and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Companies as an Engineering Manager.
He and his wife have two daughters, three grandsons, a Maltese named Kasper, two Maine Coon cats (Kira and Calley), nine Koi fish (in his pond), and many other visitors from the surrounding forest. Wayne and Dee relocated to Transylvania County because of the tranquility provided by the Blue Ridge Mountains, a thriving music and arts community, a four year Liberal Arts College, an active retirement community, great medical services, and exceptional dining and shopping.
Wayne enjoys Fly Fishing in the numerous streams, gardening and landscaping around home, and taking advantage of the recreational opportunities provided during all four seasons in the forest. He is also the President of a Property Owners Association, the Treasurer of another Property Owners Association and participates in the activities of a local Fly Fishing Club.
He enjoys working with people of all ages to help them resolve their real estate needs whether it’s a first home, a retirement home, or acreage and will endeavor to make it a pleasant experience.
