Beverly-Hanks & Associates Announces Expansion

Neal Hanks, owner of Beverly-Hanks & Associates, announced today that he is now a 50% partner and co-owner of Private Mountain Communities (PMC) with Harry Redfearn, the Founder and President of PMC.

As the Western North Carolina real estate market continues to strenghten, Redfearn and Hanks believe timing is optimum for growing the company to meet predicted consumer demand for PMC’s services. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to have someone with Neal’s reputation and experience as a partner in PMC and Beverly-Hanks & Associates will create a myriad of synergies for our customers and the communities we serve in WNC,” said Harry Redfearn.

Founded in 2006, Private Mountain Communities was created as a real estate advisory service and buyer’s resource center to assist consumers as they evaluate master planned communities in this region.

The company utilizes a proprietary survey that matches consumers to the community that bests meets the unique lifestyle preferences of that buyer. “The PMC model is growing in popularity among consumers because more than ever buyers want resources to help them navigate through the overwhelming number of choices available here in Western North Carolina. The market has changed. Customers are demanding a more personal, progressive, innovative approach to buying real estate. This partnership allows us to take the lead in meeting that demand,” said Neal Hanks.

PMC’s state of the art showroom is located in the historic Grove Arcade building in downtown Asheville and is widely recognized as the region’s most comprehensive buyer’s resource center. “We showcase the area’s finest planned communities in one convenient location so families can preview them all in a pressure free environment,” stated Redfearn. “The showroom offers a warm and inviting atmosphere where customers can relax and explore communities at their own pace by reviewing dvd’s, brochures and utilizing the interactive community research tools on the large screen displays.”

With over 50 years of combined experience in lifestyle based planned communities, PMC is staffed with “Community Advisors” who have done the extensive on-site research to understand the unique offerings of each community. This independent and objective approach saves the customer time and ultimately helps them make a more informed decision.

The company’s website was created as an online buyer’s resource for anyone considering moving to WNC. Customers can take the survey, review and compare matched communities and learn more about Western North Carolina real estate.
