50 Years of Building and Development Experience!

 The quality of your finished product and the view speaks for itself!

Development Team of The Vistas at Banner Elk


Over fifty years of experience went into the development of your new mountain home! Rarely is the developer also your builder, but at the Vistas, the all-in-one owner / developer / general contractor, will be on-site daily until completion of the community. Interfacing directly with the owners when building your new home is a huge advantage to getting that mountain dream home you deserve.

Since acquiring the land, we have made every attempt to transform The Vistas into Banner Elk’s premier in-town luxury condominium community with a view.

The quality of your finished product and the view speaks for itself!
