December 2019 Newsletter

Our December Newsletter is out and ready to be viewed by all.  This month is all about getting to know one of our agents, Susan Stelling.  She is a great person, mother, wife, friend and AGENT.  If you are looking for help buying a spot in our great area Susan would be a great resource and guide to helping you find what you are looking for. In fact, we have a team of five great agents who specialize in helping buyers and sellers find their dream location at the right price.  Be sure to look at the “5 things you didn’t know about her” and see what she has been keeping hush, hush.  In this month’s newsletter, we are also featuring four properties.  These are either new to the market or have been reduced in price.   We also have the last two “Wednesday Walk” Episode videos where we show you around some of our listings around the area that we are excited about.  We “hired” some great helpers, our children, in the videos so be sure to let them take you on a great tour of some great places.  December is a busy month and our area tends to host some of the best events.  We have a whole page dedicated to some of the events happening in the area so you don’t want to miss checking that out and adding a few to your calendar.  Please Have a safe and fantastic holiday and remember if you need our help finding the perfect spot, let us know.  We can be reached on facebook, through this website, or come visit the office on Main Street in Downtown Boone! We love visitors! Drop in, we are the only real estate office in Downtown Boone and would love to meet anyone and everyone that comes to visit our favorite place!


About the Author
I am a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, but I have been in North Carolina since1997 when I moved to Boone to attend Appalachian State University. I earned my degree in Theatre Education and Communications. While at ASU I met my husband, Matt Long, a Boone native and general contractor, and gained a heart for these mountains and my beloved ASU Mountaineers. After graduation, I spent 5 years teaching in Charlotte before being given the opportunity to move back to the High Country. In 2007 I earned my NC Real Estate License and began in full-time brokerage. In 2010 I helped to open a franchise brokerage in the High Country. I gained impactful knowledge and built important relationships during my 8 years there, but began to feel the calling to get back to my roots.

In June of 2018, my dream became a reality when I opened 828 Real Estate. We are a boutique brokerage that is locally focused, community-minded and client-driven. I feel so fortunate to be in a career that I love, have opportunities to serve wonderful clients, and get to work with the best team here at 828 Real Estate.

I am a member of The High Country Association of Realtors, the North Carolina Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors. I am a member the Boone Chamber of Commerce and I am on the board for the Downtown Boone Development Association. I have also completed the Realtor  e-Pro certification that specifically focuses on the technology tools needed in the purchase or sale of a property. Additionally, I have earned my CLHMS Designation. (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist) and a qualified Affiliate. Over the years I have been awarded various Top Producer Awards. I am honored each year to be invited to the Top 50 Brokers in the High Country celebration.

My husband and I reside in downtown Boone and have 2 beautiful children, Sadie Rose and Levi. We attend Alliance Bible Fellowship and stay connected by serving the community and supporting local non-profits like Western Youth Network, The Appalachian Theatre and Valle Crucis Community Park. We love to spend time outside hiking, playing on the river, running with their dog, Emmie Lou, hitting the slopes and making the most of our time in this amazing place we get to call home!
