Bobbie Mccachren
Keller Williams High Country
About Bobbie

I left the North Carolina coast for the beautiful mountains of western NC in August 2007. The ever-changing weather, endless hiking trails and streams, and four beautiful seasons were just what my soul needed. I've called Boone home for almost a decade now, and know the area very well. As a real estate broker, I will guide you throughout the High Country and help you make the best choices for your investment. My background includes a B.S. in Appropriate Technology and a minor in Town, City, and Planning as well as an M.A. in Geography, all from Appalachian State University. My knowledge of construction methods, renewable energy systems, planning concepts, and land and water features are all invaluable resources for you when purchasing real estate. I am also a mother to a sweet and spunky almost 2 year old who has changed my whole world. I have always been interested in pursuing a real estate career and decided last year while on maternity leave that there was no better time than the present, so I went for it and here I am! I love working with buyers and helping you find the perfect piece of property, whether it's your first home, vacation home, or investment property. I will truly listen to your needs and help make the process go as smoothly as possible. I am so proud to call the High Country my home, and would love to help make that happen for you. Contact me for all of your real estate purchasing needs.

Chris Eller
4 Forty Four Properties
About Chris

Chris believes in the law of attraction, the belief that a person draws into themselves that which they give out—and that abundance is the fruit of gratefulness. With this tenet as the guiding principle of Chris’s life, he nurtures relationships with honesty, integrity and competency. Chris knows that trust is the cornerstone of all successful relationships and without trust a meaningful relationship with substance and enjoyment will not come to full maturity. Chris’s life journey first brought him to 4 Forty Four as the 4th employee of our growing construction company in 2003. As the housing market collapsed in 2008 and affected so many businesses and people, 4 Forty Four and Chris were no exception. In 2010, Chris began focusing on managing his long-term investment properties and freelance carpentry as he weathered the storm of the economic downturn. In 2015, he began brokering real estate transactions. During this time he gained valuable experience in all real estate services including property research and availability, land purchasing, buying and selling of homes, and consultation. After brokering real estate transactions for several years Chris began looking for ways to bring more value to his clients. Chris wanted to provide a real value proposition that he currently was not able to provide. As 4 Forty Four made plans to implement and offer a streamlined homebuilding option called The Impressions Collection it became clear that Chris with his Real Estate experience could make this option a more holistic integrated experience for clients. The collaboration with 4 Forty Four Properties was born to offer a streamlined process to answer virtually all of the clients real estate/construction questions. Chris has lived in Boone since 1996, married his beautiful bride Jill in 2012 and is father to two step-children Owen and Grace and his daughter Catie. Chris enjoys playing tennis, jogging, mountain biking and home improvement projects around the house.
