Welcome to Lake Chatuge and the Surrounding Mountains!

I moved here a few years ago to "Live the Mountain Life".  Lucy (my Mountain Cur) and I enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer including National Forests, Lakes, Rivers, Waterfalls, and of course the Mountains.

We are located within 2 hours of four States (GA, NC, TN and SC), and have four seasons with year-round activities including; golf, shopping, boating, camping, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, hiking, and kayaking.  In addition, we have some wonderful restaurants, wineries, craft breweries, festivals, and fresh local markets for organic foods.

If you are buying or selling a home it can be one of the largest financial decisions, you will make. Finding a professional who has local market knowledge, understands the complexities of contracts, and has powerful negotiating skills is essential to this decision.  My mission statement has always been "To Exceed My Customers Expectations".

I have always loved real estate, and helping others find or sell their home.  With over 16 years of experience and several hundred successful closings, I would like to help you.  If you are a Buyer looking for a home in the mountains, or a Seller who might need assistance marketing your home, or avoiding a foreclosure, please call me today.

I look forward to assisting you with all your real estate needs!

I was born and raised in the countryside of western NY. After graduating from LeMoyne College I moved to the beaches of Florida's west coast.  Yearning to get back to the mountains I traveled the Blue Ridge Mountains and found my dream in the small town of Hayesville, NC.  I am a licensed broker in NC, GA, and FL and am certified as an advanced CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert), C-REPS (National Association of Broker Price Opinion Professionals) and a CIAS (Certified Investor Agent Specialist) in addition to holding the Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) designation.  I am member of NAR (National Association of Realtors), NEGAR (Northeast Georgia Association of Realtors, and FAR (Florida Association of Realtors). 


Mark went above and beyond when we bought our new home. When we ran into an issue selling our Florida home, he helped our buyer try to get financed when her financing fell through. He even gave us a beautiful house warming gift. He is knowledgeable and helpful. If we sell this house, we will absolutely sell with Mark Sharon & Eddie
Mark not only listed my home and found the buyer in a very short period of time. He is very knowledgeable in the market and is very good at negotiating contracts. He kept me informed each step of the way. He also assisted the buyers during their inspection period and kept them calm to make sure that everyone ended up happy at the closing table. I would highly recommend Mark and would not hesitate to use him in the future Diane
Mark is a very thorough and conscientious real estate professional who is capable in all facets of real estate sales, including income properties as well as primary and vacations homes. He understands the markets and makes the same tools available that other insecure Realtors keep to themselves. He also understands the motivations of buyers and sellers and can provide the guidance needed to scrutinize any given potential transaction. As an attorney, I have worked with Mark on several occasions to the benefit of my clients. I have worked with him for years. I am now working with him to find a property for myself. He is my go-to guy for real estate. Jim
I would give Mark a 5 start rating in every respect. He helped both me and my son out of a very difficult and depressing situation. Since then he has assisted many friends. He is very professional and knowledgeable in the real estate business. I was personally in the business for 12 years so I truly know professionalism when I see it. It was very refreshing to have your calls returned timely and all your questions and fears answered. I would highly recommend him to absolutely anyone. Nancy Ammom
