GreyBeard Realty, formed in 1999, began as a rental management company but quickly shifted to include sales. Today sales make up 75% of the company's business.
Why is it called GreyBeard Realty? Although we are a real estate company we wanted to anchor our name to our beautiful surroundings. Greybeard Mountain is the largest of the Seven Sisters (Middle Mountains), which is the closest range to Black Mountain and Montreat. Greybeard Mountain got its name from the old timers who thought the ice-covered trees on its ridges looked like an elderly man's flowing grey beard. Greybeard Agents and Staff.
