There’s nothing quite like Springtime in the mountains of Western NC. It’s a time of rebirth, as the landscape transforms into a beautiful array of colors, leaving behind the barren shades of winter. It’s also a great time to enjoy our area, as the temperatures warm up and the days are a bit longer. Take advantage of all the outdoor activities Franklin has to offer, including hiking, golfing, fishing, camping and more! With the arrival of Spring, you may be contemplating a new beginning as it pertains to your home or property. So, if you’re looking to purchase a new home, Spring is a great time to start your search! New listings will be coming on the market almost daily. However, due to the low inventory numbers, they will be in hot pursuit by other buyers. If you see something you like, ACT NOW! Contact one of the real estate pros in this guide to assist in finding the right property for you. If you’ve been thinking about selling your home, Spring 2021 is a great time to list! With the landscaping in bloom, grass turning green, and the leaves returning to the trees, it’s the perfect time to show off the “curb appeal” of your home to potential buyers. As I’ve already mentioned, inventory is at an all-time low, so there’s never been a better time to maximize the return on your investment! Contact one of the real estate pros in this guide to get started. They are the area’s TOP AGENTS and have the expertise to get top-dollar for your home. Whether buying or selling, Spring is a great time for you to have a new beginning in real estate. Thank you for choosing The Real Estate Buyer’s Guide to help lead the way! Luke Bateman Publisher

Buying? Selling? Let me work for you!  I am: • Capable  • Committed  • Consistent  • Client-focused Here’s what some of my recent clients had to say about me!

Connie Millsaps

Broker EXECUTIVE CLUB 2018

828-342-9318

“I am very impressed with Connie Millsaps. I’m an out of state buyer so I leaned heavily on her abilities to make everything work out in this home purchase. She was constantly in touch with me and made sure that all of the details were covered. She worked with the seller to negotiate the transfer of funds and saw it through to completion. She is thorough and very professional. It has been a pleasure to work with her. Thank you very much Connie.” “We contacted Connie in our search for a mountain property in N. C. She made herself available when we could make trips up and stomped through the woods with us to look at remote sites. After finding the perfect property in the pouring rain she led us through the purchase process which was somewhat different than in Georgia. We would definitely use her again.”

“Connie was listed on a road sign for a house we wanted to look at four years before our actual home purchase. We didn’t wind up buying that house obviously, but as first time home buyers, we felt very comfortable with Connie. She was so knowledgeable, patient, and explained things in a way that we understood. She was so encouraging and good to work with that we kept calling her to show us houses. When we finally found ‘the one,’ she was amazing to help us negotiate. She bent over backwards to help us out and she will forever be considered a friend. So grateful for her!” “Connie was wonderful to work with. She was very attentive and extremely responsive. Any questions we had she took the time to answer and explain very throughly. She helped us through the extremely difficult process of buying a home with ease, and made it so much less stressful for us.” “Connie Millsaps is the ultimate real estate professional. We worked with Connie over a period of approximately 3 years and she found the perfect mountain home for us. She is honest, patient, and so very helpful. Since we were not familiar with the area, we relied on Connie to make recommendations for properties, home inspectors, and closing professionals. She was prompt with replies to our many questions and always followed through with resources, assistance, etc. We have worked with real estate personnel in different states and by far, Connie Millsaps was the very best. We highly recommend her for any real estate needs.”

WHAT ARE MY RECENT CLIENTS SAYING?

“The process of selling my house seemed overwhelming and exhausting to me, but Matt went above and beyond from the beginning which made the entire process much less stressful! He always had an answer for each of my questions, he made sure that deadlines were met on our end, and he even helped me find a place to rent while going through the process of selling my home. He priced my house appropriately and it was only listed for two days before it went under contract. He’s a genuine, honest person and I wouldn’t have used any other agent!” “Always a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and confident in his work. Matt is energetic and passionate about his field and has a great in-house team to help him out. If you want someone who knows the area, can find you your perfect spot, get through all of it with a smile and stay positive throughout Matt is your R/E agent.”
