Founder of Carolina Mountain Sales, Brian is a top agent and multi-million dollar producer specializing in residential real estate and development throughout Western North Carolina. With an innovative vision of what a boutique real estate firm should be, Brian had the business acumen and foresight to recognize the opportunity and launched Carolina Mountain Sales, a full service boutique real estate company focused on serving buyers and sellers of distinctive properties. With Brian's enthusiastic and inspiring leadership, Carolina Mountain Sales has consistently outperformed the competition; achieving the highest annual sales volume in Asheville of firms with 100 or less people and the highest per agent sales volume in Asheville. 

Brian is actively involved with the development, branding, marketing, consulting and exclusive sales of communities in Asheville and greater Western North Carolina. With his matchless work ethic and desire to serve his clients, Brian has a true passion for real estate demonstrated by the enthusiasm he carries through to all of his transactions, focusing on helping buyers locate their ideal mountain property as well as helping sellers get their property sold. He is a responsive, personable and outgoing individual who genuinely cares about his clients and feels providing outstanding service is key. 

Since 2009, Brian has sold more than $166 million in real estate and is consistently in the top 1% of Brokers in the Asheville Market for closed sales volume. In 2017, Brian closed on over 65 transactions totaling more than $26 million. Expanding his real estate expertise, Brian also specializes in sales and marketing for developers as well as commercial properties; Brian's track record is unsurpassed. 

During 2004-2008, Brian worked for Centex Destination Properties, a division of Centex Homes that focused on the development of highly ammenitized residential developments across the US that were primarily purchased as second or third homes. With over 650 Centex communities and 19 communities under the destination properties division, Brian was the top sales agent for the community and one of the top sales agents for the company during his first year of service. In 2005, Brian was promoted to the sales manager position to lead a team of 25 people and was able to continue his sales success through his team. Both Brian's team and one of their premier developments, Bear Lake Reserve, were often used as a "test community" for other Centex Destination Properties. Brian also served as a guest speaker during conventions in Las Vegas where he would share his sales and marketing expertise with team leaders and sales managers from many other Centex communities. 

To continue offering the highest level of service to his clients, Sheila Jenkins, a licensed broker, has worked along side Brian as his full-time assistant since 2013. She previously worked as Carolina Mountain Sales' office manager for two years.
