Mossy Oak Properties is pleased to announce that it has expanded into the western region of North Carolina, with the opening of Mossy Oak Properties-Carolina Timber & Realty in Sylva. 

Mossy Oak Properties-Carolina Timber & Realty will be owned and operated by Jeff Norwood and Tom Peacock, who both bring successful business backgrounds to their new venture, with Norwood being a 15 plus year veteran of the rural real estate and timber industry, and Peacock having over 20 years in marketing and brand strategy.  The Mossy Oak Properties platform is the perfect fit for their team, per Peacock.

“We are incredibly excited to be able to work with Mossy Oak Properties to bring their unique outdoor lifestyle brand to Western North Carolina,” said Peacock.  “There is no doubt that just having the power of the Mossy Oak brand behind our firm will have a positive effect on all aspects of our marketing efforts from obtaining the best listings and pairing them with the right potential buyers to finding quality agents and hopefully building a solid referral network.  The Mossy Oak outdoor brand is alive and well in Western North Carolina and we are proud to be an ambassador of that brand by bringing the Mossy Oak Properties division to our area.”

“Our office will be centrally located in Sylva, North Carolina, which gives us the ability to service the Mountain portion of the state,” said Norwood. “We are very fortunate to be able to represent Mossy Oak Properties in a very iconic and frequented part of the South.  The demand from people seeking to have a piece of property here in the Smoky Mountains is high, as this area offers a plethora of outdoor activities.  Our area offers some of the best fly fishing in North America, while hunters here enjoy turkey, bear, hog, and deer hunting. And, with the reintroduction of elk into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park just a few years ago, there is now talk of a limited elk hunting season in the near future.  We are excited to be a resource to help people fulfill their dreams of owning a place in our slice of paradise.”

Chris Hawley, Co-Founder and CEO/President of Mossy Oak Properties, said “Our goal is always to partner with people that understand our vision, values, and culture, and are capable of becoming the preferred land specialists in their region.  We are confident that collectively Jeff and Tom are the perfect bearers of the Mossy Oak Properties banner in one of our nations’ most unique rural areas.  We look forward to work alongside them in the growth of their business in western North Carolina.”
