As a full service, conservation-focused real estate brokerage, we connect people to the beauty, history, and culture of Western North Carolina through both the built environment and land protection. Established architecture, construction, and interior design firm PLATT created the innovative and groundbreaking firm Conservation Advisors of North Carolina in 1998 to help landowners in Western North Carolina protect and conserve their valuable mountain properties; now, Conservation Advisors has grown into a unique and progressive real estate brokerage: Witherspoon Platt Associates.
We find that people come to this part of the world for all kinds of reasons. The call of the mountains. Fly fishing. Epic sunsets. Biking. Golf. Hiking. Good people. Down time. Fun times. Family time. Unplugging. And a search for something they can’t quite name.
That search is the reason why we do what we do. From strapping on muddy boots and scouting property, determining exactly how and where a home can adapt or live like an extension of the land itself, finding a house that feels like home, matching a business with its ideal property, or listening intently to a client’s needs and dreams, we’re committed to the real, daily work of serving people, of late nights on the computer and early mornings with contractors, because the end result is a place someone calls home, here.
Our roots in and knowledge of this special place – its secret, sacred spaces, its ravines and hollows and pastures and mountains, its people, history, and culture – are exceeded only by our love for connecting others to it.
What we realized is that all of our exploring, hiking, fishing, talking, porch sittin’, beer drinking, music listening, and blackberry picking is just as much an internal journey as it is an external one. And it’s our joy to share that journey with everyone we meet.
