Cassie grew up in western North Carolina and has been coming to Highlands for over 35 years since her parents bought their first vacation home here.
She attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia and upon graduation she spent the next 15 years in Washington, DC. While in Washington, Cassie worked in business development for the Washington Symphony Orchestra and the Washington National Cathedral before a career move into the commercial sector. Having grown up in the real estate development and construction business, it was natural for her to then pursue a career in international real estate and construction. She worked in marketing for two national real estate firms and a large international construction firm in Washington, DC before relocating back to western North Carolina in 2012.
With Cassie's background growing up in the real estate business, she has extensive experience in knowing how to find the perfect property for a buyer and the ability to visualize creating the property into their dream home. Cassie brings excellent communication, negotiating and networking skills as well as the ability to create the most effective marketing plan and materials to showcase the listing of your property.
Since coming to Highlands for over 35 years, her family has established themselves locally in the community. Cassie had many summer jobs over the years in Highlands while in both high school and college. She has seen Highlands grow significantly over the years since her dad’s construction business was based in the area, yet the natural beauty of the mountains that attracts so many remains.
She is truly passionate about helping her clients find their dream home as well as working with clients to sell their cherished property for maximum value.
Cassie enjoys all Highlands has to offer with her husband and two young children.
"Cassie knows the Plateau and was the perfect choice for an out of town buyer like me. She helped me find, place an offer, purchase and close on an incredible home in a remarkably short period of time. When I needed to reach her, she responded right away. She works very hard for her clients. " A.K.
"I recently had a client purchasing a second home in Highlands NC. My client has been a long time client and requires excellent communication and follow up. I reached out to several agents and we decided to work with Cassie. My client and I both had an amazing experience with Cassie. She kept me in the loop during the entire process. And she has stayed in contact with me and my client after the closing. I feel like I now have a friend in Highlands! From a Realtor’s prospective I highly recommend sending your referrals to Cassie. Your clients will be in great hands." L.P., Broker, Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty
