In search of mild temperatures and a place to unwind, Chuck made his first visit to the Cashiers-Highlands area more than 20 years ago on a summer getaway with his wife, Ann, and their two small children. During that short visit, Chuck knew that Western North Carolina was where he wanted to be. The desire for the mountain lifestyle led him to search for property in the area for several years until he found the perfect piece of land for the home of their dreams.
The home was intended to be their second residence until Chuck's retirement. But the lure of the Blue Ridge Mountains soon prompted the Selfs to realize that it was time to say goodbye to the intense pace, traffic and heat of Atlanta, and after the construction of their new home was completed, Chuck and Ann settled in permanently to enjoy the simplicity and splendor of mountain living.
Prior to selling real estate, Chuck enjoyed a successful sales career in the television and entertainment industry, working most recently as Vice President of Sales for both Raycom Sports in Charlotte and Warner Brothers Television in Atlanta.
Spending a moment with Chuck reveals his passion for everything this area has to offer. He finds tremendous satisfaction in matching his clients with their dream mountain home or home site. Chuck also enjoys golf, tennis, hiking, biking, boating on Lake Glenville, and any other reason he can think of to be outdoors. Even the dark night beckons him outside to gaze at the beautiful star-filled sky, bringing back cherished childhood memories so easily forgotten while living in the big city.
Chuck is an active member of the Cashiers-Highlands community, having served in board positions with the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cashiers, and the Highlands-Cashiers Board of Realtors. Chuck is currently serving on the board of the Blue Ridge School Education Foundation. Chuck and his wife are active members of Mountaintop Golf and Lake Club. Chuck’s wife, Ann, is a United Methodist Minister and also serves as the Executive Director of The Village Green in Cashiers—the 13.2-acre park at the center of town. Chuck and Ann look forward to their visits to the mountains from their daughter who lives in Atlanta, and their son, daughter-in-law, and two grandsons who reside in Nashville.

My wife and I recently sold our home in Cashiers, NC. After our initial meeting with Chuck, we were very comfortable with him and the marketing plan he proposed. Chuck’s preparation of photos and description of our property for listing was superb. His presentations in both print and digital media were thorough, attractive and effective in reaching prospective buyers. Chuck did an outstanding job of setting up and conducting showings and open houses, with impeccable attention to detail. [...]

Chuck recently listed and sold our land & guest house on Lake Glenville. Chuck treated this project with the same effort and enthusiasm as he would a project 5 times greater in size. All the listing details where handled with great care by Chuck and his support team at Silver Creek. The marketing materials were well done and Chuck worked hard to get the word out. When an offer materialized, Chuck stayed on top of every little detail to make sure the process for the buyer went smoothly [...]

My wife and I spent time with Chuck looking for a place we would eventually retire. He’s the consummate professional. I want to tell you how impressed we were with Chuck. We’ve both worked with a number of realtors over the years, but none in Chuck’s league. He is knowledgeable, thorough and tireless. As a result, we respected him and trusted his advice. I have already referred a prospect to him and will continue to do so.
Rod and Julie L.
It's always great to work with someone who loves what they do and are great at it. Chuck got to know us, cared about our wants and our budget and was able to match us up with a house that was perfect for us. He had the opportunity to steer us towards more expensive properties that wouldn't have been ideal for what our family needed but would have been better for him. We love where we ended up. His help didn't end with finding our house. He has helped our transition to the [...]
Pete and Andrea Fischbach, Atlanta GA
My husband and I have been property owners in Cashiers for 25 years and decided to purchase another larger property. We met Chuck and immediately liked him. He has a real command of the market area and is very conscientious and always responsive, immediately answering phone calls and texts. It was a pleasure working with him. I highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs in the area.

Chuck is a consummate professional. He is an experienced businessman who understands the importance of listening to his clients to minimize wasted effort. He is attuned to all the various details required in the process of identifying and acquiring a home. My wife and I found Chuck to approach each outing with enthusiasm. His personality made our search an enjoyable experience.

Chuck Self is a man of integrity and competence, but the cherry on top – so to speak, is he is extremely conscientious. As out-of-state buyers it was very important to us to be aware of what was going on and what needed to be done. Not only did he keep us up-to-date, it usually was a call to say everything had been taken care of! Although we’re hoping this will be our “forever home’, we would not hesitate to contact Chuck to list our home.
Brad and Carol Wilson
The best type of glowing review is a "repeat customer" testimonial. Our first experience with Chuck Self was when he seamlessly sold our home in Cashiers several years ago. My dream of purchasing another mountain home in Cashiers came to fruition with his assistance ... His response to phone calls, texts and emails is the quickest you will find! He is ultra congenial and so easy to work with. Chuck accommodates his client, even if it means sacrificing his own time and expense, as [...]

He is very well versed on the entire process and works very well with other brokers, both inside and outside Silver Creek. He's also quite diligent and responsive. He's expert at marketing. I am happy to highly recommend him.
