With a bold entrepreneurial spirit and a firm belief that real estate is in his blood, Jochen Lucke has spent over two decades building his reputation as a skilled realtor, broker, contractor and developer — first in Southeast Florida and now on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau.
His love of the mountains, paired with his love of family and community, brought Jochen to Western North Carolina. The decision to leave the sweltering heat and stressful environment of Fort Lauderdale for the cool, clean air and laid-back atmosphere of Cashiers was an easy one. Since making the move, he has become deeply involved in the community, currently serving on the board of the Cashiers Community Fund. He is also past Chairman of both the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation and The Village Green boards, and served on the boards of the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital and Fidelia Eckerd Living Center. Jochen and his wife, Adrienne, are members of The Country Club of Sapphire Valley and The Chattooga Club. When he’s not hard at work at the Silver Creek Real Estate Group offices, Jochen can be found on the golf course or croquet lawn or dining in one of the area's fine restaurants.
Jochen is devoted to the Silver Creek credo of Building Relationships, Delivering Dreams. Whether you are looking for your vacation home, your primary residence or your dream estate, Jochen and his team of brokers are committed to finding the ideal property to fit your vision. Jochen has a firm grasp on the local real estate market while always keeping an eye on national trends. He has an innate understanding of the practice of purchasing and selling properties, both as a broker and a developer. He attributes much of his success to his tenacity and has negotiated and closed many deals that others might have walked away from. Jochen truly enjoys real estate and development and finds great rewards in the accomplishment of finding the perfect home for his clients.
Jochen is licensed in both North Carolina and Florida.

My wife & I had an extremely difficult sale to accomplish; our home of the past 25 years, a lake compound with not just one house to sell, but two. Although we were familiar with many Cashiers area brokers, we elected to retain Jochen Lucke of Silver Creek Real Estate Group, someone we'd never met but knew of thanks to his stellar reputation. Not only did Jochen provide the guidance and comfort we hoped for early on, he delivered the kind of results we never dreamed of. Both houses [...]
Working with Jochen was a pleasure.We were frustrated with another company and switched to Jochen who guided us with his experience to eventually sell our house. He is a true professional.

Felt very comfortable using Jochen in selling our home in Cashiers!Loved living there but grandkids were calling!!!He understood the unique setting of our home and how to show the great setting it had!!I recomend him to anyone looking to sell in the upper price ranges!
Jochen got more than he bargained for when he took us on as clients!! When our house sold, he took us all over Cashiers looking for a new house. He took us to see a house we weren't really interested in...and we fell in love with it! He knew we'd love it! Then during our move, he answered all our questions and went well above and beyond what a realtor should do! I'm sure he missed our daily..and sometimes hourly...calls and texts! He also sold our lot!! Thank you Jochen!

I was part of a team that sought a "perfect site" for a new summer camp. In working with Jochen we achieved our goal of purchasing the perfect piece of property surrounding a beautiful private lake. But more than that, Jochen was a terrific, professional partner with us over the entire purchasing process, from searching for possible sites, going through the negotiation process, and handling some due diligence issues that arose. I first got to know Jochen about 5 years ago, and know [...]
Jochen was very professional and helpful during our search for a home near Cashiers. He was insightful and discerned from our discussions what type of place we desired. He then followed through by efficiently showing us the options that best matched our wishes. He stayed involved during the closing process and was instrumental in working with both the Seller and I to resolve issues. I would highly recommend Jochen if you are looking to buy or sell property in the area.

Jochen is a total professional. From listing our home in November to our closing date was a quick five months. We attribute the ease and pleasure of this process to Jochen's attention to detail and incredibly excellent communication skills. Any issues that arose were handled with confidence on Jochen's part and with little or no action necessary from us. Advertising of the property was perfect. We highly recommend Jochen and the Silver Creek Real Estate Group.

We have been visiting, and renting in the Sapphire Valley, Cashiers, Highlands area for years. We worked with numerous realtors but when we decided to purchase, Jochen and his organization found us the perfect property for the price we were prepared to pay. Five years later we decided to sell. Expecting the process to take a year or more, Jochen sold our property in 30 days! His knowledge of the area, the market, and of all services available, proved to be invaluable. He’s the best! We [...]

Working with Jochen and Silver Creek was a very positive experience. His knowledge of the market here helped us sell our house in a very competitive environment. He kept us always informed of activity and he and his staff were always available to answer any questions we had. The professionalism that he and his company demonstrate is very impressive. I always recommend Silver Creek Real Estate Group to anyone who needs help in buying or selling their home.
After owning a fractional property in Cashiers for ten years, we were very knowledgable about the area and what kind of house we wanted to purchase. Jochen quickly reacted and showed us the perfect purchase options. His candid advice in negotiations was invaluable. If you are looking to buy in Cashiers area, see Jochen first!
