Meet Our Team

WNC Real Estate at Lake James has a team of qualified agents ready to introduce you to the wonderful properties that await you at Lake James. Whether you are looking for a lot or a home, we are excited to showcase all that is available. 


If you are longing for a private haven that is serene, open, and quiet, yet easily accessible to a major international airport, we invite you to discover Lake James, a private lake community nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The moment you arrive the stress of urban life melts away. Lake James is a destination to share with your immediate family and friends and also to make new friends. It is a place to create a lifetime of memories. 

As you walk around the lake or bike on one of the many hiking trails in the area you may hear several different birdcalls as you stop to notice the wildflowers and sample some wild berries along the way. It is not unusual for deer to cross your path throughout the seasons. Watching a bald eagle stand still in the lake waters while hunting for fish, offers great photo opportunities. 

On the lake you may hear the trickle of water dripping from a paddle, the laughter of someone across the lake, the splash of people playing at the water's edge or swimming over by the clubhouse. What you will not hear is the buzz of motor boats. Only kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, rowboats and electric powered pontoons are permitted on Fishhawk Lake. 

At night, as you breath in the fresh air and gaze at the starry skies you will often have the pleasure of seeing shooting stars. You may hear the repetitive hoot of a late night owl or the crunching sounds of an otter enjoying its fresh catch of fish under your dock. 

From the glassy mirrored surfaces of the placid morning waters to the watercolor sunsets, you will find that this place uplifts your spirit and inspires creativity. Lake James is a retreat from the hectic world, a soul-surrendering safe place to let go of the world's angst and indulge in all of the joys that nature offers. 

So, put your feet up, sit a spell and enjoy the crisp clean North Carolina mountain air; take a deep breath, embrace being in the moment and let your senses soar!
