A little about me

A Highlands native, Betty grew up exploring the woods and natural wonders of the area. After receiving two degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she returned home to the mountains in the late 1970’s to begin her real estate career. 

In addition to helping people make decisions about real estate, as a licensed professional counselor and retirement coach, Betty helps people make decisions about their lives in other arenas as well. 

Although she has enjoyed much success in her real estate dealings, she considers herself not the typical fast-paced, high-pressure realtor, but more of a partner and ally in helping people discover and live their dreams. She enjoys writing and songwriting, hiking and travel. 

Betty is a graduate of the Leadership Highlands program and serves on the boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Highlands Historical Society.

In 2021, Betty received the President's Circle Award placing her in the top 7% of BHHS agents nationwide.
