Denizens and regular visitors of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau recognize Chris' voice the second they speak with him. That's not surprising, as Chris was the voice of the Plateau for a number of years as the morning show host on WHLC FM 104.5.

Denizens and regular visitors of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau recognize Chris' voice the second they speak with him. That's not surprising, as Chris was the voice of the Plateau for a number of years as the morning show host on WHLC FM 104.5. Once you meet Chris, you'll certainly never miss him again, as his 6'9" stature literally makes him stand above the crowd.
Chris was born in Germany and grew up in Washington, D.C. After studying at Georgia Tech and graduating from the University of Maryland, Chris moved to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, where he lived for 22 years. In Canada, Chris worked as an on-air talent on numerous radio stations. He moved to Highlands in 2017 to take the job at WHLC. "I moved to the mountains to become the voice of Highlands, little did I know how much the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau would speak to me."
An avid cook, Chris attended Le Cordon Bleu, receiving a Certificat de Traiteur, and loves sampling all the culinary delights the Highlands-Cashiers area has to offer. Chris quickly fell in love with the Plateau and decided he wanted to help other people enjoy our beautiful nature and live in our truly unique and amazing community. While he's no longer on the air, Chris still gets behind the mic as the in-game P.A. announcer for Highlands High School Basketball.

Chris makes dreams come true! He is knowledgeable about the great 828 and surrounding areas! In our hunt for buying a 2nd home, Chris went ABOVE and BEYOND the expectations of any realtor and did so with a great sense of humor! We could not have completed this process without his help! There were many steps involved in our purchase that we weren’t able to attend from Atlanta and Chris handled everything. We’re looking forward to the next opportunity to work together!!
Chris Duffy recently helped my husband and me buy a second home in Highlands. Chris was so friendly and personable, and he answered every question we had - even those we didn’t know we had. We viewed the house on a Friday morning, and Chris worked all afternoon and into the evening to make sure that we reached a deal that worked for the sellers and us. Between execution of the contract and closing, he answered even more questions promptly and patiently. We live eight hours [...]
Chris Duffy is a fantastic asset to the house buying/selling process. I recently used Chris to help sell our home in Highlands, NC. He made the process simple and supported us along the way from providing sage advice, to staging the house and identifying the right price and buyer. Selling a home or even buying one is stressful, but agents like Chris made this monumentally less stressful. I couldn't give him a higher recommendation.
It was a pleasure working with you to sell our property. The listing itself was brilliantly marketed - almost wanted to keep it ourselves!! Sold within a very short time and closed on the date chosen. Good communication and excellent attorney referral! Thank you!
My wife and I contacted Chris several months before we would be ready to purchase a property. Though we weren’t immediately ready to buy, that did not keep Chris from providing first-class service from the start. As we live 800 miles away, it took a bit of coordination to view properties and Chris handled this without any issues. He knew the types of properties we were interested in and found all those available for us to look at while we were in town. The transaction went smoothly, [...]
We recently purchased property in Highlands, NC with the assistance of Chris Duffy as our realtor. During these pandemic times we had to work with messaging and text services. Whenever we were able to visit the property, Chris provided detailed information to review. Chris was diligent to answer our questions and provide additional information. Calls were quickly returned. When we neared closing Chris worked with the attorney so that we could do a closing without traveling to Highlands. It [...]
Living over 500 miles away from our North Carolina property means we are extremely reliant on our realtor. Chris Duffy has been key to our investment in Cashiers. His knowledge of the local communities and the trends and issues affecting them make him invaluable to us.
