What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Very professional. Jochen guided us throughout the sale and as we approached closing he anticipated our questions and and had all the answers. His staff was courteous knowledgeable and the office is very well organized. A very professional operation that clearly focused on our interests throughout the sale. We will definitely use Silver Creek for all of our future real estate needs in the Cashiers area.

Chuck is highly motivated organized and the consummate professional! Better yet he is a person of integrity who gave superb advice based on current market conditions and was beyond trustworthy. I felt my interests were protected from start to finish and Chuck was careful to communicate with me every step of the way.

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!
From the first time we contacted Chuck, he went above and beyond to orient us with the area we were interested in and gave us a comprehensive understanding of alternatives to consider. Chuck was immediately responsive to our requests at all times, and also gave us plenty of distance as we made our decision. Once we had a property in mind, he worked very hard to make sure we protected ourselves in diligence and that we were asking the right questions. He is extremely resourceful and is an effective problem solver. Beyond all that, he’s just a good person and is extremely easy to work with. We wholeheartedly recommend Chuck.

When our family decided to look at a home in the Cashiers/Highlands/Sapphire area we were put in touch with Carol Mathews. Initially, we weren’t sure exactly what our timing was or where to look, and Carol said, “No problem." Not only was she willing to be flexible and work with us, she found out about our family, our interests and our needs to make sure we looked at the right homes. Once we decide which home to buy she helped us with the entire process, communicated often, and made the entire process very easy. I'd recommend Carol to anyone looking to move or buy in the area.
We worked with Carol Mathews of Silver Creek Real Estate Group to purchase a vacation home in the mountains, and she was a delight. We decided to purchase a summer home in Sapphire, but at first, we really did not know the ins and outs of the area though we had visited a couple of times on vacation. Carol's 20 years of living in the vicinity helped us decide what area made the most sense for our family and lifestyle by offering pros and cons of one area versus another. As my wife and I are both realtors in Texas, we found Carol to be knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, as well as having a sense of urgency. Above all else, she is a woman of integrity. Carol checked in regularly to see if we had any questions during the process and sale and helped us with contractors after the sale. If you want someone who will help you (and not just show you houses), Carol is the agent you need.
My wife and I recently did two real estate transactions with Jochen and his team - one a sale and one a purchase. On the sale side, the Silver Creek Team did a superb job of presenting the property in its best light on-line and in printed material. Jochen's advice on the listing price was invaluable in achieving an expeditious sale at an excellent value. On the purchase side Jochen's extensive knowledge of the local real estate environment was impressive. Further, he showed a keen sense of the client's tastes. Those two aspects led to a very efficient search process that quickly identified a wonderful property. Jochen helped us through the offer and purchase process connecting us to contractors to complete expeditious inspections. We could not be happier with our purchase and, moreover, the process. If you are buying or selling in the Cashiers area, you cannot do better than Jochen and his Team.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Carol Mathews and the entire staff at Silver Creek Real Estate Group in Cashiers for helping us sell our home. Carol was so helpful in staging our mountain home so potential buyers saw its unique beauty. She drove extra miles to make sure the house showed at its best and developed fabulous marketing materials for us. The location of our property presented a challenge but Carol persevered until she found just the perfect buyer. We are truly grateful for her attention to detail, friendliness, and professionalism as our realtor.

Cassie was a great help as we researched options and ultimately purchased a second home in NC. She was very prompt in responding to all questions and emails. Cassie listened carefully to our specifications and “wish list” and previewed homes to determine likely matches, allowing us to maximize our time when we visited the area. Our search, purchase and inspection process was timely and efficient, thanks to Cassie’s advice and facilitation. Not only is she professional and responsive, Cassie is a pleasure to work with. We are extremely happy with our purchase.

Chuck is the best! Chuck marketed some land for us in a difficult market. He is responsive, creative, diligent and energetic. Once we got an offer, Chuck had great advice on price strategy and managing the process. We would always turn to Chuck for mountain property and recommend him to prospective buyers and sellers.
