Barbara Newton - Broker :
Barbara Newton
Barbara moved to Highlands in the summer of 1996. The area with its lush forests, hiking trails, waterfalls, and wonderful mountain families has been a passion of hers since childhood vacations with her family and summer camp activities at Camp Ton-A-Wanda with neighborhood girlfriends.
Her background includes studies in liberal arts at Emory University in Atlanta and the University of Florida in Gainesville. After much travel throughout Europe and North Africa, she settled back in her hometown of West Palm Beach where she got busy with her three daughters’ activities while teaching English full-time to 6 - 12th grade. Her three daughters are now happily busy working and or raising their own children or pets in Texas, North Carolina, Florida.

After getting started in rentals, she knew her job was developing into a passion for Real Estate. So much so that she started adding listings and buyers for Western North Carolina real estate in 2007. Her interest shifted to a greater task of finding buyers and selling houses.

Jim Kinard - Broker :
Jim Kinard
Jim’s love for the Highlands area began very early in his life. His first memories are of the cold waters of Pinky Falls, a series of cataracts and fast moving water where Big Creek spills into Randall Lake. His family would picnic and swim there, making this a very special place in his mind. Other places and events became special as his family continued to spend their summers “on the plateau”.

While in college at Western Carolina University and Georgia College, where he earned a B.S. Degree in history, Jim worked every summer at Highlands Country Club.

Upon completion of a tour of duty in the US Navy in 1975, Jim returned to his beloved Highlands and a summer job at Highlands Country Club, where he met Cynthia, the woman who swept him off his feet and would become his bride. Jim stayed at Highlands Country Club for the next eleven years, working his way to Club Manager, Assistant General Manager and real estate Sales Director, enjoying great success. He went on to serve in various management positions at other prestigious clubs in the southeast. Jim entered the pastoral ministry in 1991 and returned to these glorious mountains in 1997, serving as a Pastor and working in the real estate industry. His love and knowledge of the area will serve you well in your pursuit in making Highlands memories!

Rayfield Lines - Broker :
Rayfield Lines
A Macon, Georgia native, Rayfield and his wife Carolyn drove up Main Street for the first time in the Fall of 1995. By the time they had reached the third traffic light Carolyn turned to Rayfield and said "I could live here." Six months later they had moved.

Highlands has that effect on many people!

Highlands, NC is the highest town on the most southern escarpment of the Blue Ridge mountains. At an average elevation of 4,118 feet above sea level, it is in the "real mountains" not the foothills.
Whether you want a golf villa or a fixer-upper, Rayfield's experience in the complete menu of properties available on the Highlands Plateau - and beyond - make him your best choice as a realtor.
