What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Cassie was a great help to us finding the right home. She spent a lot of time with us and understood what we wanted in a home and worked hard right through the closing.
Don and Gina Phillips
Cassie did a great job selling two properties for us in Cashiers/Sapphire Valley. She consistently looked for potential buyers using her extensive network with builders and other means for our lot in Bald Rock. I would highly recommend Cassie.
After being members of Chattooga Club for a number of years, we recently bought a cottage in the club for the first time. Linda represented both sides of the transaction and could not have handled it more professionally and fairly for both parties by clearly communicating the wants and needs of each party to the other. She effectively guided us through the required process of buying real estate in North Carolina as well as handling all the details effortlessly. She has been and continues to be helpful, and willing to do anything requested both during the buying process and long after closing. All in all, Linda is a pro who made the buying process a pleasant experience.
Jeannie and Bob Dolson
We have known Linda since we joined the Club years ago and have enjoyed her friendship and were delighted to have the opportunity recently to also work with her on a professional basis. We listed our home with Linda because she is one of the most knowledgeable of all the realtors we have encountered concerning the Cashiers/Highlands area in general, but particularly the Chattooga Club. She was at all times responsive and strictly professional and gave us good and valued counsel throughout the process. We would retain her again in a minute.
Jana and Ansel L. Davis
Our experience working with Linda on buying our cottage in The Chattooga Club was surprisingly (due to our inexperience) and totally positive - 5 stars. We have lived in our hometown residence since 1972, so our experience in buying property was almost nil. Linda automatically took care of so many of the details and walked us through those that required our input. We were even able to conclude the process electronically. She had our back on all parts of the transaction, but we also knew that she was being equally supportive of the seller. She remains there for us today - 8 months later. Linda is a true professional with a heart.
Our home in Cashiers was on the market for awhile but it was not until we listed the property with Jochen Lucke at Silver Creek Real Estate Group that we sold the home. Jochen marketed our property with exceptionally professional brochures and magazine ads but, more than that, he continually promoted our home himself rather than only depending upon the glossy print material or the internet. We were very demanding clients having owned our own real estate company in the past and Jochen's professionalism and constant contact with us was exceptional. Thanks, Jochen, for getting the job done. We would recommend you and your company to anyone who is serious about selling or buying real estate in the area.
Herbert and Elaine Gimelstob
Chuck recently listed and sold our land & guest house on Lake Glenville. Chuck treated this project with the same effort and enthusiasm as he would a project 5 times greater in size. All the listing details where handled with great care by Chuck and his support team at Silver Creek. The marketing materials were well done and Chuck worked hard to get the word out. When an offer materialized, Chuck stayed on top of every little detail to make sure the process for the buyer went smoothly and the open issues were all resolved quickly. I highly recommend Chuck and his team not only for their deep knowledge of the area, but also their process and professionalism in getting the job done.
Jack and Ellen, Atlanta GA
When we decided to sell our lakeside home in the mountains, we originally listed it with the agent who had helped us find the home to buy. After 15 months and not much traffic, we decided to change realtors and list the property with Chuck and Silver Creek. We had heard so many good things in the Cashiers area about Chuck from friends and neighbors, and they certainly were correct in their recommendation. Chuck is a gentleman and a professional, and he and his marketing team at Silver Creek did an outstanding job of pricing and marketing our home in a very competitive area. He thought of everything - and sold our home in just over 3 months! Photography, online marketing, advertising - they did it all in a very unique and professional manner and, we couldn't have had a more pleasant experience than working with Chuck. We'd recommend him to anyone!
Sue and Ed Morgan - Hilton Head, SC
Chuck did an amazing job for us in assisting our purchase of 18 Chinquapin Ct. He is responsive, knows the market and the area, and is just a good guy. His list of service providers proved invaluable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.
Joe and Kate Gholston
With an eye towards buying a view property in the Cashiers/Highlands area, we contacted Silver Creek Real Estate Group, and we got lucky, very lucky. Ray Trine answered our call. From that first introductory discussion, we had no doubt we'd finally found the right person to help us with our search. We'd been looking in the Cashiers region for several years with no success, but this time with Ray, it all came together. At this moment, we're writing this note looking out on our sumptuous view of Lonesome Valley and having a glass of wine on the deck of our dream home. Thank you, Ray. Thank you for sticking with us. Thank your for staying up until 3AM with the lawyers when we encountered an issue with the house we'd chosen. Thank you for sharing, contacting, and scheduling your wide community of professionals who assisted us promptly because of you. Thank you for providing us your guidance, intuition, and years of experience. Thank you for taking care of so many items which took you out of your way every day until we closed on our house (and weeks after)! Thank you for getting us the right house, at the right time, for the right price, in the right area. The whole process was remarkable, and despite the complexities, you made it great fun. You are in fact the best realtor we've ever worked with, and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to know you now as a friend and neighbor.
