ABOUT 828 REAL ESTATE


828 Real Estate is a locally owned Boutique Real Estate firm in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains that focuses on Quality not Quantity. Located in the vibrant downtown Boone area, we serve all of the North Carolina High Country. Our primary goal is not to build a business empire, but rather to build a strong community while providing excellent customer service from start to finish. All of our real estate professionals have deep roots in this community. This gives us a unique opportunity to serve our clients with incredible customer service and localized knowledge. When 828 agents are not serving our clients, we can be found serving throughout the community. Each of our agents has chosen a local non-profit to support throughout the year with both their time and treasure. We look forward to working with you in this beautiful community that we get to call HOME!

Sarah Long is a native of Knoxville, Tennessee. She has spent the last 24 years of her life in North Carolina. In 1997 she moved to Boone to attend Appalachian State University where she received her degree in Theatre Education and Communications. She met her husband, Matt Long, a Boone native and general contractor in a “communications class”. Sarah moved to Charlotte to teach soon after graduation. After 5 years of teaching, they were finally given the opportunity to move back to the place they love, the High Country of NC. In 2007 Sarah received her NC Real Estate License and began her new career. After 3 years in the business, she was presented with an opportunity to help open a Franchise Real Estate Company in the area. Lots of growing, education and relationships were formed over the years with this large brokerage. In 2018 Sarah made the decision to step away from a larger company and start to build a smaller, locally focused brokerage. 828 Real Estate is located in vibrant downtown Boone. It is a boutique brokerage firm that focuses on Quality, not Quantity. Sarah is a member of The High Country Association of Realtors, the North Carolina Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

It is specifically designed to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale property. On a personal note, Sarah and Matt have 2 beautiful children, Sadie Rose (11) and Levi (9). The Longs attend Alliance Bible Fellowship and stay connected by serving the community by supporting local non-profits like Western Youth Network, The Appalachian Theatre and Valle Crucis Community Park.
