How It Started - How It’s Going

If you recently joined us in this space you may not know our backstory: the places where we grew up, began our careers and ultimately left our jobs to form our real estate company, Highland Premiere. What is revealing is how our common interests, values, goals and reliance on each other’s strengths guided us to be able to create a special place to do what we do best. When we opened Highland Premiere in 2014, it was just us working together to help our clients find the perfect place to call home. 

Over that first year, the two of us worked hard and earned a reputation for delivering quality service to our clients. As our reputation grew, so did our client list. One year after starting our firm, we began adding team members to the Highland Premiere family.

Our style, work ethic and customer service attracted like-minded realtors. In the eight eight years since we founded Highland Premiere, we have gradually added to our firm, and today we proudly work alongside eight professional realtors who are like family to us. In the very near future we hope to share more news as we find novel ways to give our clients the best experience possible.

We appreciate you joining us as we add more chapters to this story. To be continued.

Here’s how it all began, our Founder’s Story.

Our Advice

Tax season is upon us! Did you know that home buyers automatically receive a claim for homeowners' property tax exemption? Single sellers are exempt from the first $250,000 profit on the sale of their home, and couples from the first $500,000. If sellers make home improvements considered capital improvements, they can receive additional tax relief. Also, investment property owners can defer their capital gains by rolling the sale of one property into another.

Our Team
The Highland Premiere team is dedicated to our clients and communities.
We asked our team member Tracie Stearns what motivated her to join the Highland Premiere family.

Here’s what she had to say:

I joined Highland Premiere because of Vivian and Dennis' authenticity and the firm's unique boutique approach. They are strongly connected to their buyers and sellers and truly take time to evaluate each situation to create the best strategy for success. Highland Premiere's “white glove” approach attracted me from the beginning. Vivian, Dennis and the entire Highland Premiere team work incredibly hard to make sure each transaction is successful.
