Hello. I’m the owner and broker-in-charge at Carolina Mountain Homes. I was born and raised in this beautiful mountain area, and our company has proudly served clients at the same location since 1978. As you can imagine, massive changes have occurred since we first opened our doors, and the real estate industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Since the advent of the internet, keeping up with the technology explosion is a constant challenge, but our primary goal will always be to spend whatever time is necessary to match our prospective buyers with the property of their dreams. On the other hand, if you have a home, land or commercial property to sell, we guarantee you that we will market your valuable asset with the integrity and skill we’ve developed through years of experience.

I have six great children and nine wonderful grandsons, most of whom still live right here in Murphy. Call us, email us or stop by Carolina Mountain Homes any time at all. You’ll find that we treat each and every client as one of our extended family. When your transaction is successfully completed, I hope you’ll agree that we have lived up to our slogan, “Southern Hospitality with Realtor Professionalism!

Hi – Thanks for visiting. As a lifelong resident of this wonderful spot in North Carolina I want to show you all that Murphy and the surrounding mountains have to offer. The four seasons here are each breathtaking in their own special way and I believe that if you visit you will be as excited about this area as I am.

I grew up enjoying this area and learning about the Real Estate business from my parents. My ability to find “the” spot that you have been dreaming about can be verified by the many happy customers that I have helped over the last seventeen years and now call friends.

As your Realtor, I promise hard work and honesty in everything I do. My specialties include:

  • showing and finding properties
  • listening to your needs
  • explaining what is happening
  • negotiating the best price possible
  • and making sure that you have fun in the process

If the mountains are calling your name, then give me a call and we will get started today!

Hi. My name is Suzi Henry, and I must confess that I’m just a kid at heart! When I was 18 years old and a freshman at the University of Miami, I just couldn’t get enough of the ocean air, beaches and palm trees. Decades later, when my husband and I spent our vacations camping and riding dirt bikes in the awe-inspiring Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina , I fell head over heels in love with the clean mountain air, the rivers, creeks and lakes, and the abundant recreational opportunities of the region. Hiking the U.S. Forest trails, fishing in pristine Apalachia Lake northwest of Murphy, white water rafting on the Nantahala River, or cruising the scenic highways and byways—it just doesn’t get any better than this! And so, 5 years after surviving Hurricane Andrew, we sold our Miami home and moved into what we lovingly dubbed the “Funny Farm.” With a soul-satisfying mountain view from our front deck and nearly 30 acres of woods and pasture surrounding us, we found the good life.
Licensed as a Realtor in Miami since 1970, I soon realized that I could combine my love of mountain living with my real estate career, so in early 2000 I obtained my North Carolina real estate license and then my Georgia license, since my home is ideally located to allow me to serve the 7 counties in our two area multiple listing services. At first I marveled at the differences between selling real estate in a large metropolitan area and the more laid-back rural areas, but I quickly found that people are the same, no matter where you go. Only their real estate needs are different. While I consider myself highly tech savvy, I feel that the most important skill I can offer my clients is my ability to listen and truly understand their needs. With so much information available online, the search process can become overwhelming. Not to mention that what looks like the perfect property on a website is often a major disappointment when viewed in person. With 15 years experience in listing and selling mountain properties , it is my pleasure, and indeed my privilege, to be of service to my clients in what is undoubtedly one of the most important purchases of their lives. Whether you’re a first time home buyer, a baby boomer planning for retirement, or an investor looking for land, commercial or rental properties, I promise to always provide you with service you can trust. Call me, text me or email me, and you can be sure that I’ll always be there for your real estate needs!

My husband and I discovered this wonderful area in 2005. After living in Florida for 17 years we missed the seasons and looked forward to the changing scenery. In 2007, we decided to make it our full time residence and purchased land to build.I started my real estate career in 1997 in Florida and helped build that company’s rental division from a dozen properties to over 400 properties!! There is never a dull moment in property management.We finally made it up here to full time residents in 2010 and that is when I started with Carolina Mountain Homes and it has been a great fit! We live in Hanging Dog area of Murphy along with our two dogs who love it here as much as we do.I enjoy finding the right property for a prospective tenant as well as helping the owner maximize his investment.
