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.

Chuck was very helpful in selling our Trillium home promptly in the summer of 2018. We asked him to price it for a prompt sale and he did. We closed the sale within 90 days of the listing. He also represented the buyer and he did a really good job in handling the negotiations and details of closing which was helpful since we were not in North Carolina during the listing and closing periods.. Also, his company does a really good job of marketing including professional photos for the marketing [...]

Chuck assisted us with an extensive long distance search for a home. We had several trips to look at property and months of internet searches and communication. Chuck was a consummate professional- patient, thorough and a real pleasure to work with. We fell lucky to have found him and to have worked with him.
When buying or selling Chuck is your guy. He is extremely professional, honest and knowledgeable about real estate and especially in our area. He makes the experience a pleasure even during difficult and stressful times. I have bought and sold a few houses in the mountains and when I needed my house sold, I called Chuck.

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.

I dreaded starting over with selling my house in Glenville this year after no luck last year. Then Chuck Self of Silver Creek Realty and all of his enthusiasm made it a breeze right from the start. The house sold in less than three months during which he kept in touch often to let me know how things were going. Now that it has sold, I feel like Mr Self is more a friend than my realtor.
We had a truly outstanding experience with Chuck. His integrity and character were exceeded only by his desire to make sure we were completely satisfied as his clients. Chuck sold our second home 31 days after listing the property. We highly recommend Chuck for buying or selling a home.

We worked with Chuck for almost 3 years looking at many different properties each time we visited the area. We spent many days together and he was always available and willing to spend as much time as we desired. He advised, after viewing many houses, that to really get the home we wanted we should consider building. He contacted us in Florida last November about a lot he thought would fit our needs. We made a trip to see it the first week in December and sure enough it was perfect. Chuck [...]

It was such a delight to work with Chuck. He just happened to be the listing agent for the first house about which we called. We couldn't have selected a better agent! From the very first time we met him, he was pleasant, friendly and relaxed while also being very knowledgable. And his love for the area as well as his job was very evident. He was always willing to show us as many houses as we wanted to see never putting pressure for us to purchase any of them. We would highly recommend [...]

If you are buying a home in North Carolina, let Chuck Self make your experience the smoothest you have ever had. That is what he did for us. His knowledge of the area and homes available, helped us narrow in on the best home for us. Once we signed the contract, he was there to help us with everything all phases to get us to closing. Then he went the extra distance and helped us with recommendations for everything from contractors and trash service to security and housekeepers.
