Brian has spent over 25 years, most of his adult life, on the Highlands/Cashiers Plateau in the real estate, financial services and banking industries. He has helped hundreds of residents find their way in reaching their goals. Brian has a breadth of knowledge from his years in financial services that is invaluable for buyers and sellers. After graduating with a bachelors degree in Business Administration/ Economics with minors in Communication Arts and International Business from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, Brian joined Wachovia Bank (now Wells Fargo) and shortly there after relocated to the plateau as Vice President and later Western Area Manager for Wachovia's Jackson, Macon and Haywood County offices. Brian's love of real estate led him to obtain his NC Real Estate License and his General Contractor's License over 12 years ago. Brian has a vast knowledge of the building process but has only built homes for himself as he built his real estate business. Brian has four fantastic children, two attending Appalachian State and one at Highlands High School. He firmly believes that there is no better place to live and raise children than on the plateau. Each of Brian's children have attended Summit Charter School in Cashiers and Highlands High School in Highlands.
