Hello, I’m Becca Riess, and I would love to help you with buying or selling your home in the Brevard, NC area. I moved to Brevard from Birmingham, AL in 2012 with my husband, Nolan, and our 2 middle- school-aged children.
We bought our home in Connestee Falls in 2013 and so enjoy our quality of life here- this town and this neighborhood have so much to offer! We enjoy going to events at the Music Center, hiking and seeing waterfalls in the area, eating in the excellent local restaurants, and browsing in shops and galleries. My favorite activities here in the neighborhood include walking at the track, hiking the resident- built trail systems, and grilling and visiting at Lake Atagahi.
My previous professional experience as an RN in both the hospital and home care settings has made me a good listener, a good communicator, and a creative problem solver; my work as a medical coding specialist has developed my attention to detail, and I feel like these qualities are all beneficial to the real estate brokerage process as well. I’m excited to help others make this area their home and look forward to working with you!
As is often the case, a house on Maple Street that I wanted to see was already under contract by the time I called. I was disappointed, but to my surprise sometime later Sarah contacted me saying that the deal was falling through and the house would be back on the market in a few days. Was I still interested? I was. We scheduled a viewing early on the first day it was back on the market and had it under contract that evening. And after that, things just got better. Sarah was very helpful, taking the lead in setting up inspections and taking care of all the details. Closing went smoothly and I was ready to move into my new home in a very short time. I’ve now been here for over a year and I love it. I’m grateful to Sarah for all her help and would highly recommend her to other home buyers (I have actually referred some friends to her already).

Over the years, I have learned how imperative it is to work with just the
right realtor - someone with knowledge of the product, of course, but one who also has the utmost integrity so that you know that they really are working on your behalf. I got that and more when I worked with Nolan Riess to find my new home in Connestee Falls. Nolan not only has a great working knowledge of available homes and the surrounding community, but he also has an amazing knack for remembering all kinds of little details about the homes which came in very handy. That was not a small task when it came to how many homes we saw together, and I was just one of his clients!
After studying and visiting lake communities in five states and extensively in North Carolina, we decided Connestee Falls was definitely the best community for us. At the beginning of this three-year process, we met Nolan Riess and he started telling us about all the amenities and natural wonders of Connestee while also keeping us posted about possible homes. Nolan has patiently and cheerfully worked with us all this time and with his consistent but never high-pressure help, we recently purchased a beautiful home on an amazing lot on Lake Ataghi. Nolan is enthusiastic with a positive outlook and we are blessed to have gotten to know him. He was always happy to show us any property we wanted to see, and he was responsive and knowledgeable about houses and the community. Nolan has been helpful to us in so many ways beyond being our realtor, even after we had purchased the property. We highly recommend Nolan and the community of Connestee Falls and we can’t wait to move into our new home.

Bridgette Shuler is highly recommended by us. She handled the sale of our house while we were 900 miles away. We couldn't be happier with her work.

Need to sell your home? May we recommend Bridgette Shuler of Connestee Falls Realty. Bridgette's superb marketing skills, attention to detail, extensive knowledge of her product and overall network with agents from across North Carolina proved to be the winning ticket to sell our property. She is a true seller's agent in every sense. Willing to make constructive suggestions, work in tandem with the seller and to help every step of the way. There are not enough words of praise for this individual but, you will quickly recognize these qualities upon meeting her. For us, it has been the most seamless sale of property to date. We sincerely encourage you to interview her if you are considering selling.

We have been looking to buy a house in the mountains for 10 plus years and I could never find an area that I truly loved until I contacted Sarah. First of all, she was the only person that actually took the time to call me back (I was an out of towner). Once we met up and started looking we really went at it. She showed me a bunch of houses all over the area all while I had 3 kids and a puppy in tow. We looked for a solid week (poor Sarah). But finally, after some budget changing, we found a house we Loved!! Sarah is truly part of our family now we could not be more proud to call her our friend and favorite Realtor/Broker.

I worked with Sarah Hysong on selling my home in the summer of 2018. I found her very helpful and responsive to my needs. I was out of town for much of the time my house was being shown so she took the responsibility for having my house open and ready to when a showing was scheduled. The website kept me well informed with feedback about each showing. She handled all the details of the sale as well as helping with setting up inspections and negotiating. She was positive and encouraging. I recommend her highly.
I had responded to a home listing on a realty website, and called Connestee Falls Realty, as they were the listing agency. Sarah Hysong answered the phone, and I immediately knew that she was going to be a pleasure to work with. From an initial interview of our preferences and desires to a day-long tour of approximately 15 homes in the Connestee Falls complex as well as in the town of Brevard, Sarah narrowed down the homes that she found to fit our needs. As a Brevard native, Sarah gave us an incredible insight into the area, town and various aspects of the amenities available in and out of Connestee Falls.
