The best thing about Doug Helms is his complete knowledge of the market and the area. His advice has been priceless. His guidance has helped us sell and buy 3 properties in the Highlands area. He and Clif are an excellent team and every transaction with them has been seamless. We are also fortunate to have gained dear friends in the process! You cannot go wrong with Elevated Properties. – Kim and Ray

Doug is an expert in the Highlands/Cashiers area and above all, he operates with integrity and will not just tell me what I want to hear to make the sale. I have referred him to my family and clients. He has become not only my realtor, but a friend. I would highly recommend him any day. - Kristy F.


I am writing this letter in appreciation of my excellent service and extreme patient and caring demeanor that our Realtor®, Mr. Clif Gottwals, had in our journey of relocating to Highlands, North Carolina. My partner and I were not exactly sure what we wanted in a home; so Clif, very patiently, showed us a diverse assortment of homes, cottages, and even land on which to build. With Clif’s ability to listen and understand our needs, he was able to key in and show us exactly what we wanted and needed. I feel he is extremely knowledgeable in his business, can read people well, and has a true love of the Highlands/Cashiers area. I absolutely love my new home and I highly recommend Mr. Clif Gottwals as a very reasonable, well educated, and knowledgeable Realtor®.
