About Liz

I moved from Massachusetts to Western North Carolina in 2019 to enjoy life, nature and the beauty of the mountains that surround us.

We fell in love with Brevard, and especially Connestee Falls, the moment we drove through the gates and experienced the beauty and the amenities of this well established community. While in Massachusetts, I helped my husband manage his dental practice while raising two wonderful children. When it was time to retire, we knew we wanted to plant our roots in the mountains of North Carolina. Connestee Falls has certainly proven to be the perfect place to start our new adventure in life.

I became a REALTOR® in this area because I wanted to share my love of the mountains and the Brevard area with others. I believe in helping people find the perfect location in which to raise a family or retire.

As a REALTOR® with Connestee Falls Realty, I want to use my enthusiasm and love of this area to find you the perfect home and lifestyle in Western North Carolina. Connestee Falls, as well as the surrounding area, has proven to be a perfect location for whatever life has to offer.

I will help you and guide you with a no pressure attitude to find the perfect home for you and your family. Call or email me to begin your journey of finding the perfect home for your needs.

I wish I could find the perfect way to thank you for being so thoughtful in the myriad of details you handled in marketing our home. Caring is such a part of who you are that I'm sure you're not even aware of some of the little kindness you do and what a difference they make. The burdens we faced being out of state to property get our home ready for market you simplified by handling and overseeing all the contractors. Your honest and integrity helped us tremendously. Your generous spirit has made such a difference, and we greatly appreciated you being there for us.

We decided to list with Lynda, after asking around, and checking with other realtors. We liked her approach to the selling of this very loved 2nd home, and completed the paperwork on a Thur. afternoon. On Sat they came over for measurements and photos, asked if we could be out while one of her people showed the house---it sold that afternoon to those people. Selling price was greater than what I had come up with using what I had found on Zillow and other listings, and she could tell me why on each of the listings were worth less than our price. We miss the house, but are thankful, for the ease of sale and move! Thank you Lynda.

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!

My wife and I recently purchased our home in Connestee Falls using the services of Bridgette Shuler. She was very knowledgeable about the area, and she genuinely cared about locating a property that met and exceeded our expectations. Having a limited amount of time to tour properties, she was able to organize our showings where we were able to make a well informed decision about our purchase. She was professional with negotiating the price and terms of our contract, and we feel both parties to the transaction were equally satisfied. We would highly recommend her services, and feel like we have made a life long friend.

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.

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.

Nolan also was someone I trusted right away. He was always upfront and
honest, realistic in his approach and definitely more of a “service” type of realtor. I knew he wanted to help me find the perfect place for me, not just make a sale. I was not the easiest client. It took me 3 years of looking and working things out in order to make this move, and Nolan was infinitely patient and as enthusiastic when we looked at the last group of homes as he was when he showed me the first. Throughout the whole process, (even on the frustrating days), Nolan always made it fun and was confident we’d find my new “nest”. Sure enough, we did!

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.

I can't gush enough about Bridgette Shuler. She has helped us with two home purchases and one sale within the past few years. Bridgette is always responsive and communicated clearly and timely throughout negotiations. She is incredibly knowledgeable and an all-around awesome person to work with. She is kind, calm and encouraging. I would recommend Bridgette to everyone I know.

Bridgette Schuler sold us our new home in Connestee Falls in the summer of 2018. Bridgette is very personable and it was a joy to work with her. Most of all, Bridgette is very knowledgeable regarding the real estate landscape in western North Carolina. She was always prompt, well organized, and efficiently coordinated showings and appointments. She listens well and focuses her efforts on your needs and desires. I would highly recommend anyone considering real estate in the area to look up Bridgette.
