14 Acres-Golden Rd, Lake Toxaway NC

The Story:

This hidden gem in the mountains of Lake Toxaway is a perfect example of how a little “elbow grease” can result in quick sweat equity! Once again, I reached out to the seller with a letter and they quickly responded to start the conversation. This particular property was listed before and spent over 700 days on the market. The first visit revealed why, and how much work would be required. It was grown up, chest-high, there was no trail to the top of the ridge to the best house site. And above all, access across the creek did not exist.

The owner of the property met me out on the second visit and we got to work! We cleared a path down to the meadow and also began pulling large trees across the creek in order to build a bridge. Through the process, we completely cleared the meadow, built a bridge, and cleared a trail to the top of the ridge. The pictures below show the bridge and the trails that were cleared.

After several days of hard work, the property went on the market June 24th and was under contract with a full price offer by July 1st. This is what I believe set us apart from the rest; I am not afraid to get dirty and actually prefer getting out in the woods for a change of pace. In the end, providing a way for quality buyers to see the property is key to a quick and successful transaction.

According to Zenith Media, “The average person will spend 100 minutes every day watching online video in 2021.” Why shouldn’t it be your property they’re watching?

These images, videos and virtual tours are great tools used to attract REAL buyers and filter out the tire kickers. In essence, by giving the customers a clear and complete picture of the property you can limit the unnecessary buyers and focus on those who are truly interested; MAXIMIZING TIME WITH QUALITY BUYERS!


  • Under contract in seven days and closed in forty-one
  • Had previously been on the market for over 700 days
  • The right marketing and planning attracted the right buyers and led to a quick sale of the hidden gem in the mountains of Lake Toxaway!
