About Becca

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!

Testimonials

“
My house was admittedly a tough one to sell. It's an older house, structurally sound but needing updates, and it does not have the open floor plan preferred by many buyers. Before putting the house on the market Lynda did a walk-through with me and let me know exactly what should be done to make the house appealing to buyers. Then she marketed the property extensively, stressing its strong points. At every step of the way she was straightforward and patient with me, and I think she was just as happy as I was when the house sold. Lynda was absolutely the right realtor for me, and I have recommended her to several friends.

Sarah was open and honest about the homes we toured if she was the listing agent, and even showed us a few homes that were not even for sale at the time, but were due to be completed in the coming months. It was certainly not a difficult decision to purchase the home in Connestee Falls, the area speaks for itself. Sarah communicated by phone or text promptly, and coordinated everything for our closing. Since we are from out of state, and not moving in immediately after closing, Sarah has acted as the property manager and directed the installation of utilities, appliances and general oversight of the home until we could arrive. Sarah and Lynda Hysong even went out of their way to ensure that a car I had shipped down got delivered and put into the garage….at 10 PM on a Thursday night! The level of expertise and commitment to detail sets Connestee Falls Realty apart from other agencies that I have worked with. I truly feel as if I have been treated like a friend and not just another client.

Nita was our champion. She saw that we got a good deal and stuck with us as work was done to fulfill the contract. Always good humored and available, Nita made us feel like we were her only clients. - Amy and David H.

We are so happy we chose Bridgette Schuler to sell our home.  She took the stress out of the selling process and was personally involved in every aspect of the sale from creating the listing, helping with staging, bringing in a great photographer, and tactfully negotiating with buyers.  We got a quick sale (one week after multiple offers!).  And she was always there to answer all of our questions and concerns. Thank you Bridgette!

We are so delighted with working with Bridgette Shuler of Connestee Falls Realty in listing and selling our home. She is a go-getter in marketing and showing property, she is a collaborator,  she is an innovator, coming up with new approaches for marketing, she is resourceful and she cares.  Bridgette is knowledgeable and readily addresses prospective buyer’s inquiries, and she follows up and she is persistent.  We could not have been happier with Bridgette… always a cheerful face, outstanding communications, and most importantly, she works hard and gets the job done.

Lynda is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about WNC and Connestee Falls in particular. We had a couple offers we made fall through and thought a house was just not in the cards for us. However, because of her local contacts, Lynda found a house for us that was not on the market at the time, but she knew the owner wanted to sell sooner or later. She made it look effortless but I know there was a lot of work involved to put us in the house. Lynda listened to our needs and desires, and her perseverance in making the deal happen was incredible. Lynda is the best!

Professionalism, thoroughness, and tenacity all describe my experience working with Bridgette Shuler to sell my property in North Carolina.  I had been trying to sell it for three years when I finally was put in touch with Bridgette.  She explained her marketing approach and marketed my property with excellent photographs and descriptions.  She then took the initiative to contact persons who she felt would have an immediate interest in my property.  Within two weeks I had an offer, a few days after we inked a deal, and two weeks later the transaction was closed.  I could not be happier and would recommend anyone buying or selling real estate in the Brevard, NC area to first contact Bridgette.

I am pleased to write a review for Sarah Hysong. Over the course of my life, I’ve dealt with many realtors and Sarah rates as one of the very best I’ve encountered. She actually became my realtor through the luck of the draw when I first contacted the office about a showing. Over the course of almost a year, Sarah showed me numerous homes for sale. She was extremely patient with me as I turned down one after another. Sarah was always pleasant and I never felt rushed or hurried to make a decision. When I contacted her regarding a home I wanted to see, her response was always prompt, both in returning the call and setting up a viewing.

Looking out of state for the perfect vacation home can be a challenge. It takes the right realtor-one that has the ability to listen and key in on the desires and needs of the buyer. We were fortunate to have DJ Golden as our realtor who truly selected several good choices. Initially, we were focusing on a particular home, but DJ told us to hold off as she was aware of something special coming on the market and she was right. DJ introduced us to a Lake home having that mountain flare and special artistic features created by the owner's husband. DJ handled the negotiations with skill and we obtained an excellent buy. It was also comforting to have someone capable to handle all the infinite details of the translation till closing. We personally recommend DJ for her in-depth knowledge, tenacity and on-going positive attitude.

We worked with Bridgette Shuler to sell our father's home in Connestee Falls after he passed, and she made the entire process an easy and pleasant experience.  My father’s house was older and needed work and we were out of state.  But, we never had to worry about the details, Bridgette took the lead and handled everything.  She was present at the initial inspection, made recommendations to update and upgrade so we could sell for top value, coordinated any required work as well as personally oversaw the staging for marketing the home.
She communicated with us about everything, so there was no wondering what was going on.  I would highly recommend and happily work with Bridgette again if ever given the opportunity.  Not only did the house sell in record time, it looked amazing!
Thank you Bridgette for all that you did to turn a difficult time into a pleasant experience.
