About Tom Goldacker

I had been vacationing to the Highlands/Cashiers Plateau for over twenty years and, like many others who have visited, fell in love with the mountains and the quality of life in the area. After spending the majority of my life in Florida and working as both a Florida Marine Patrol Officer and Private Investigator, I finally made the move! I obtained my NC Real Estate License and became a permanent resident in the community in 2004. As part of my real estate services, I also manage a few vacation rental homes. I love the outdoors and the summer weather here. But I also love the varied seasons and take advantage of the winter months as well. One of my favorite things to do is to go for a hike with my dog, Thor, who is as much of an outdoor enthusiast as myself. During my first three years here, I became well acquainted with the area and can provide you with lots of information on things to do, hikes to take and happenings during your visit.
