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 would like to take this opportunity to write this regarding the wonderful experience my wife, Susan, and I enjoyed while working with Bridgette Shuler in the selling of our home in Connestee Falls.  She is a very capable and conscientious agent, and works in pleasant, patient and professional manner. She not only knows the market, but negotiates strongly for her side and anticipates problems before they can occur. We have no hesitation in recommending Bridgette to market and sell your home.

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.

My husband and I were first time home buyers and working with Sarah made the buying process an enjoyable one. She was patient with the search and on the ball when it came time to close! I have and will continue to recommend Sarah Hysong when I come across someone looking for a great experience when buying a home.

Bridgette Shuler is an excellent realtor and I would recommend her to anyone. She listens carefully to you in order to understand your wishes, needs and limitations and then combs the market to find properties that meet your needs. She found a house that I love and could afford, then advocated for me for a reduction in the price when unexpected repairs were found at inspections. I bought the house as is and her husband, Jeff, who is a general contractor, was prompt, efficient and thorough in correcting the issues and helping me with renovations. My house is beautiful! They are a great pair and Brevard, NC is fortunate to have them represent our community in real estate. Sandy Adair
Bridgette was more than a realtor selling my parent’s house in Connestee Falls – she was a savior! Since the house was unoccupied, we ran into a few emergency situations – roof leak – heat pump freeze – either of which could have been a nightmare, but she immediately hired the necessary contractors for us and we avoided disaster.  From beginning to end, Bridgette was an enormous help.  She staged the house, marketed it well, maintained the nice appearance of the house throughout the listing (from leaves to leaks), and once it sold, she arranged for furniture to be bought & other pieces taken away.  Not only is she extremely pleasant to work with, she is an excellent communicator and knows the market extremely well.  We would highly recommend using Bridgette for listing your home.

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).

As we began inquiring from others in the community, we repeatedly heard Lynda’s name! Lynda met us at the house and gave us reccomendations of things that needed to be done, which we followed through with getting completed. She also arranged for us to have feedback from anyone who viewed the house. We had never had any feedback previously. The house sold within a short time after that! We would definitely recommend Lynda as a realtor who would work, not only to sell your property, but also to keep you informed as to what is happening throughout the process! We certainly wish we had chosen her initially as our realtor! Buddy and Carole M.
Bridgette listed our Connestee Falls house and was absolutely fantastic across the board.  From marketing our house, negotiating the price and managing the closing process.  She went above and beyond to help with repairs, furniture and other details as they arose.  Most of all, Bridgette offered smart, strategic insights at every point in the process to help us sell the home quickly and at the right price.

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.

If you’re looking for a quiet but very active community with lakes for fishing, swimming, boating, etc.; golf; hiking; social activities and so many other amenities and organizations, look no further.  We wanted a new community where we would have many opportunities to meet other residents and we believe Connestee Falls will provide that. We are excited about this new chapter in our lives and we are so thankful for Nolan Riess’ help in making it happen.
