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!

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. The Longs love to spend time outside on hikes, on the river, playing with their pup, shredding the slopes and making the most of their time in this amazing place they get to call home!
