Bill Gilmore

Broker Associate

Did you know your Virginia-Highland neighbor is a licensed North Carolina Real Estate broker?

I specialize in luxury mountain homes, breathtaking homesites, condominiums, cottages, golf communities and vacation rentals in the Highlands and Cashiers area.

As a 10-year resident and member of Old Edwards Club (in Highlands, NC), I am very familiar with the area and nearby clubs.
I have helped many discerning clients find their vacation home, new club lifestyle or homesite.

When you’re ready to cool off and create memories and make it your own – for a weekend or forever – give me a call.


With an average summer temperature of only 78 degrees, these charming towns nestled along the Eastern Continental Divide offer some of the most temperate weather in North Carolina. At an altitude of just over 4,100 feet and located just two hours from Atlanta, the Highlands and Cashiers area provides a wide variety of activities, shopping and dining.

Ranked by USA Today as the Best Small Town for specialty shopping and by Barron’s for the Top 20 Best Places to own a second home, Highlands offers something special for everyone


Rock, wood and water attain their highest form when they come together as a waterfall. People who can’t agree on anything else seem to always agree on the beauty of a waterfall! According to Mark Morrison, author of the book Waterfall Walks and Drives in the Great Smoky Mountains and Western North Carolina, each waterfall is faceted differently. Some have beauty that is big and bold, others have delicate and subtle characteristics. One thing is for certain; in this region you could explore for a lifetime and not see them all.


Western North Carolina is blessed to have over one million acres of national forests, national parks, state parks, and other public lands for our enjoyment and use. The Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests comprise most of this land, including miles and miles of hiking trails.

Our state parks offer the same activities and contain some of the lesser known hidden jewels. And new state parks are still being developed!

Men and women with extraordinary vision preserved these special places and are constantly working to save more and improve what has already been saved. They do this because they love the land, they love the beauty Mother Nature has bestowed upon this area, and because they want to share it with you, and everyone that will take the time to get out and experience it.


Welcome to one of Nature’s Greatest fishing paradises! Bring the family or a group of friends, because you’ll make many memories and have great fish tales to pass on! Whether you prefer fishing on lakes or in streams and rivers, there’s a perfect spot to drop your line.

Some great options include Harris Lake, Cliffside Lake Recreation Area and other in-town and surrounding-area lakes. Cliffside Lake, in particular, is stocked with Rainbow, Brown and Brook Trout.

There are also several fantastic rivers that anglers around here love, including the Cullasaja and the Chattooga.
