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!
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.
Kirt and Cathy Kaempfer go above and beyond to make the home search not only as easy as possible but also enjoyable. Their professional advice was invaluable throughout the process. They also shared some of their personal experiences with local tradesmen and community elements that helped in the decision process. Kirt even brought his truck—after I moved in—to haul off large boxes. I’ve bought and sold a number of houses and this team exceeded every previous benchmark. Don’t think you can go wrong with them.
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.

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.

As a Realtor myself for 35 years I can highly recommend Bridgette Shuler. She was knowledgeable, listened to our wants and needs, follow up was outstanding and she quickly found us a house we love.

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.
