Living in Alleghany County as a child, then moving away for a short time made me quickly realize this is home.  Moving back to raise my family was a dream come true.

Let Mountain Dreams Realty help you realize your dream and find a "home" in the peaceful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Having grown up in Alleghany I never appreciated the beauty, peaceful way of life and the people, until I returned home after forty years. If you are like me and tired of the rat race, give us a call, we can help find your MOUNTAIN DREAM.

Two years ago my husband and I decided that it was time for a drastic change, to leave the hustle and bustle of the city along with our corporate jobs in the aviation industry. Seeking peacefulness and tranquility, we were able to find our dream home among the many listings of Mountain Dreams Realty in the beautiful mountains of Alleghany County, NC. Not quite ready for retirement, we chose to embark on a new career in Real Estate by becoming team members of the very firm that saw us as happy and satisfied home buyers just a short time ago!

As a Realtor I am very passionate and enthusiastic about what I do. Honesty and integrity, along with determination and dedication, are philosophies that I strive for in all aspects of my life. Whatever your housing need may be, I will work extremely hard to make sure that your real estate transaction is a complete success!

I was raised on a dairy farm in Southwestern PA and have been a resident of this area since 1971. Upon moving to the area I felt right at home in this picturesque, rural setting. I love the peaceful beauty of Alleghany Co., its' natural resources, its' wonderful people. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, business woman, artist, mentor, coach and lover of life. In 1975 I began painting and teaching art professionally under the name of Studio Redwood, Inc. I became a NC Real Estate Broker because I love helping people make their real estate dreams come true! Hard work and strong ethics is what each of us strive for. I am so thankful to be a part of the Mountain Dreams’ Team. I look forward to working with you in the future!

Growing up here in Sparta, I never realized how beautiful it was until I left for college. I quickly found myself homesick for the mountains and small town life. After obtaining my Master’s degree, I quickly returned home. Let me help you find a home in these beautiful mountains too!

I was raised on a farm in Eastern North Carolina.  I initially became a Real Estate salesman many years ago while in high school and worked at the trade until I received my draft notice from Uncle Sam with the opening word “Welcome”.  Opting not to be on the ground in Vietnam, I enlisted for flight school and flew all types of military aircraft for 25 years. That experience led me to become an Airplane Flight Simulator Instructor, then a Corporate Pilot and Senior Production Test Pilot for Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, Georgia from which I retired. Fulfilling a life-long dream, I decided to relocate to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and to re-establish my career as a Realtor.

 As an Associate Broker with Mountain Dreams Realty, I can only ask that you give me the opportunity to help you find your new mountain retreat or retirement home in this very peaceful and tranquil area. On the other hand, if you are ready to relocate then I would like to list your property and do what I can to make your move as easy as possible. Let me help to make your dreams come true. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!!!

Having been born and raised here, I cannot imagine calling anywhere but Alleghany County "home".

After working 12 years at the local newspaper, I began my real estate career in 2000 by obtaining my Virginia sales license and my North Carolina broker's license.

I'm currently a member of the Realtor's Land Institute and on my way to obtaining a land specialist
designation. I love introducing people to our area, showing them all we have to offer, and helping them find the mountain property of their dreams....

I have always loved the mountains, especially the North Carolina mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway. After many years of searching for just the right spot it became clear that the high country of northwestern North Carolina offered the best value in scenery and relaxation.  After many years of corporate work in the city we decided to make Alleghany County our permanent home and have enjoyed it ever since.  Let me help find just the right spot for you as well in North Carolina’s high country and benefit from my experience and focus on client service.  Whether it’s buying or selling a property in the mountains, Mountain Dreams Realty is your source for real estate services.

.Growing up on a farm in Piedmont N.C. has made me appreciate owning a home for several years in Sparta NC. I graduated from UNCG with a masters and doctorate, major in Child Development and Family Relationships. I was a professor and dean at Ball State University for several years before I took early retirement. For the last several years I had a real estate investment company, which entailed buying, selling, renting and flipping houses and condos. I particularly enjoy working with people who love the beautiful mountains and want to buy land, farms and houses here. At Mountain Dreams Realty we offer loyalty, confidentiality, and honesty to all of our clients. Please contact us for all of your real estate needs.
