Over 15 years ago, Linda and her husband Andy relocated to this area from the Piedmont region of North Carolina. As visitors, they experienced what so many do when vacationing in the area...freedom from fast paced lives, rest, renewal and restoration of strength. It was also the place where they felt closest to God.

Linda’s career achievements illustrate how she has catapulted as a business and community leader. It began with an education in interior design that lead to her becoming owner and operator of an interior design company. The business evolved into a renovation and new construction company, where Linda was owner and general contractor for over a decade. To her credit, she was the first woman member of the Anson-Union Home Builders Association. Now, more than three decades later, the successful company is being run by her children.

It was during this time of self-employment and high interest rates that Linda first became interested in real estate. She identified real estate as a stable investment, one where she could secure a retirement, leading her to invest in several venues of the real estate market.   Upon moving to Maggie Valley, Linda brought an abundance of positive energy and experience that years of dedication built. For 8 years, she served as an Alderman of the Maggie Valley Town Board. This experience provided her considerable knowledge of Municipal laws governing zoning and building in the region.

Additionally, Linda and Andy own and operate The Valley Inn and several rental properties, specializing in accommodations for extended stays, full-time and nightly rentals. This has afforded her the opportunity to stay abreast of the current availability and market data associated with seasonal and full time rentals in the area. She has made friends with fine people from all over the world and assisted many new found friends to relocate or buy second homes in the area.

Linda’s experience, along with success in operating several businesses and real estate investments, gives her a wealth of knowledge and experience to extend to clients needs.   Professional Motto and Business Ethics of Linda G. Taylor: “My life long motto has been…There are no strangers, just friends I haven't met. Whether a buyer, seller or both, clients are friends to me and can expect my full commitment to find the best possible property available, while making the buying/selling experience as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. You can rest assured that I will listen carefully to your needs and using the parameters we discuss, together we will search and find the home or business you desire and dream of owning. There are many challenges that come with this business, but successfully achieving the goal of finding that one or more "perfect" property for you is the best reward possible.”
