Why the VISTAS?

“The beauty and workmanship were evident in just riding through the community and walking through the unit.”

Here’s What Vistas Owners Are Saying About Their Luxury Condominiums

“We bought our condominium at the Vistas in 2013. After looking around the High Country and not finding (or really even knowing) what we wanted, we walked into the model at The Vistas and said, “We don’t need to look any further.” The view… the floor plan… the appearance of the buildings… it was love at first sight.

After 5 years of ownership we can honestly say that the quality of construction has lived up to its billing. Our experiences in dealing with the developer and his staff have been 100% positive. We’re looking forward to the day when we can live there for weeks and months at a stretch rather than just weekends. Banner Elk has become home!”

“We purchased our condo at The Vistas in 2010 (one of the first buyers) because we considered the Banner Elk area the best location for escaping Florida summers with drives under ten hours. We then visited all the real estate options in Banner Elk, Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain trying to find quality construction that offered great views with easy access to area restaurants, supermarkets, hiking trails, tennis courts and golf courses with a priority on quality construction 

Making the decision to buy a second home at The Vistas was the right move for us in 2010, spending summers at The Vistas has met or exceeded all our reasons for buying there.
Still loving it…

“We have vacationed in the North Carolina mountains since the early 80s and have a son, his wife and  their older son as Appalachian State University graduates. The younger son is currently a student at ASU. We have many special connections to this area. With our desire to spend more of our lives in the area we all love, it was an easy decision to make THE VISTAS AT BANNER ELK our home away from home. Within a few hours of meeting J P Cogdill in the model, we had purchased that exact unit and had been welcomed by Kent Smith and numerous of our new neighbors!

Why THE VISTAS? The beauty and workmanship were evident in just riding through the community and walking through the unit. The amenities and building products were quality. There were absolute awesome mountain views surrounding us and the location of the community (on the mountain but close to town) allowed for a the best of both worlds. Outdoor activities for all skill levels abound. We knew the area well and we knew there was no comparable or more desirable place to live. It was perfect!

As we made the journey to living in Banner Elk,  we found always friendly, helpful guidance and assistance from The Vistas…getting established, getting to know the new community, getting to know our new home…just helping…whatever the need!
We love our new home!”

“Kent is a great builder, not just on quality and design but on the overall value of the communities which he develops. I am also a builder, a realtor, real estate investor and very happy owner in The Vistas.”
