Austin Thompson, Realtor®
Hello, I’m Austin Thompson and I live and work in Beech Mountain, NC full time. I am originally from Cleveland, Georgia but moved here in 2015 where I pursued my business degree at Lees-McRae College. During the summers I lived on Beech Mountain and fell in love with the town, the amenities, and the views. I graduated college in 2019 and moved to Charlotte to pursue my career as a high school and middle school teacher. Along with continuing my 6 plus years of real estate short term rental management, I started as a real estate broker in Charlotte but I missed the mountains too much to stay. I bought a condo on Beech Mountain and moved here full time in 2021. I found my dream home and my calling and now I am devoted to helping you find your dreams too. Whether you want to buy or sell I will not stop working for you.
