What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We are writing this letter to give our highest possible recommendation for Carol Mathews. We first became acquainted with Carol as a Realtor in North Carolina. We met Carol about 12 years ago during our first visit to Highlands. During our initial meeting, Carol outlined how we would work together. She asked good intelligent questions about our current needs and long range goals. She then went to her data base and found many potential listings. She carefully evaluated each listing and how it might meet with our goals and price range and then presented them to us. She did this independently and was fully prepared for every meeting. We were quite impressed with her professionalism, honesty, and her enthusiasm for her job. Over the years, we continued to visit the Highlands, and look at properties with Carol. During this time, Carol never tried to push us into purchasing a property that we did not want. After many years of searching and thinking that the prices would surely come down, and they never did, we finally purchased a beautiful piece of land from Carol about four years ago. We are so happy that we finally made our first investment in the Highlands. We held on to the land for about three years and then we sold it and made enough of a profit to purchase our fist home in Highlands. We both feel so fortunate that Carol Mathews was our real estate agent for both of these transactions. Carol patiently guided us though the Real Estate process and helped us achieve our dream of owning property in the Highlands. Over the years of working with Carol in a Realtor/Client relationship, we also became friends and visit with her often. Carol Mathews sets herself apart from the average realtor in her dedication to her profession, her desire to help her clients achieve their dreams, and her integrity. It is without reservation that we would work with Carol when we are ready to sell or purchase another property. It is also without reservation that we would recommend Carol to anyone else that might be considering investing in real estate in North Carolina.

Eleanor and I would like to express our sincere appreciation to you for the untiring service rendered to us in finding, selecting, negotiating, inspecting and closing our new residence in your area. Between us, we have bought and sold sixteen homes in our lifetime and we have never had the benefit of such personal service. You were truly amazing and we will never forget it. Your help with companies providing gas, telephone, security, tradesmen and other moving details were invaluable. Who in the world would even offer to meet Vendors at our home for needed installations? We hope to continue our friendship when we take up residence in May or June. If we can ever provide a recommendation for you and your Associates, we would be honored to do so.

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 highly recommend him and his team at Silver Creek Real Estate Group.

Ray has been my real estate agent for close to three decades and no one knows more about Cashiers and Lake Glenville than he does. He's great to work with. I've bought and sold several properties in the area and no one could have done a better job. When you need to get in touch with him he always returns phone calls quickly.....and that's a big plus in Cashiers!
Truly successful business leaders know how to listen to the needs and wants of their customer, and then execute in a timely manner. Jochen is that kind of leader. His knowledge and understanding of the western NC real estate market is second to none. He led us through the purchase of a home that we have thoroughly enjoyed!
Jochen and the entire Silver Creek Team are exceptional. Jochen spent time getting to know our family and understanding the type of property we wanted. His advice was superb, and I could see he always acted in our best interest. We have purchased two properties, sold one, and rented one with Jochen and his team. Every transaction has exceeded our expectations!!
It is a pleasure for my wife and me to give the highest recommendation to Silver Creek Real Estate Group and Jochen. Jochen is the consummate professional. When we decided to sell our mountain home we met with Jochen to discuss the myriad of details such as price, needed repairs etc. Jochen made the process easy. Jochen knows the real estate business "in the valley". The sale was surprisingly quick. We whole heartedly recommend Jochen and The Silver Creek Real Estate Group.

Jochen sold our house before we signed the listing and we closed 30 days later!
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 him as an individual of utmost integrity. He is a pleasure to work with and is an consummate professional in the real estate trade.
I have been a member of the Chattooga Club in Cashiers since 1993 and have known Linda most of that time. In 2012 I decided to purchase a home at the Club while Linda was both General Manager and real estate agent for Chattooga Club properties. Linda handled the purchase. Since I live in Jackson, MS, much of the transaction was long distance. Linda handled all of the details from setting up the legal closing to transferring the utilities etc. in a beautifully seamless fashion. Since then I have spent most summers at Chattooga and have come to admire and respect Linda and her knowledge of the market in the Highlands / Cashiers area. She spends a tremendous amount of time with her clients making sure she understands their needs and desires in the real estate arena. She is truly professional in all she does for her clientele.
