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.

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!

When we began to look to buy a home in the Cashiers area, a friend suggested we talk to Jochen. What an awesome suggestion! We have bought and sold many homes over the years and never had such a great experience. His market knowledge and contacts to make our desired changes to the house were second only to his how well he listened to what we were looking for. He is honest, patient and professional and we could not recommend him more highly.

Jochen was superbly helpful to our not-for-profit wilderness camp as we searched for suitable wilderness camp property in the region. His expertise and knowledge of the greater region became obvious and he was a delight to work with. I'm not sure how we would have succeeded without Jochen's excellent service. When we need a real estate agent again, we won't hesitate to call on Jochen.
Jochen Lucke was our agent when we first started looking for a vacation home in the Cashiers area. He quickly surmised that what we wanted, at the price point we were considering, was not for sale at that time (2013). He then recommended that we consider building this home. Because we live in the mid-west, this was not our favorite option, but we listened. Jochen immediately showed us lots for sale that fit our requirements.. We desired that the home have a big view, be a [...]
We have used Jochen Lucke twice for the purchase and sale of our home. He is very professional and takes care of every detail. I would not hesitate to recommend him and Silver Creek Real Estate Group for any real estate transaction. He is the best Realtor my wife and I have ever used.
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 [...]

Great service, from first showing to closing!
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.

After our house had been on the market for a while, we asked Jochen to list it for us. He obviously got everything right because it sold almost immediately! We were very happy but also a little apprehensive. Where were we to go? Within a few months, but more than a few houses later, he showed us a house that was perfect for us. We made an offer that day and purchased the home. We hope to be there for a long time! We couldn't be happier with our experience at Silver Creek and with [...]
