Nate Wright first fell in love with the High Country as a student at Appalachian State. Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, he enjoys a slower pace of life and more community that mountain living affords.
As a graduate of Appalachian State University with concentrations in Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship, his business background helps serve buyers and sellers.
Previous roles he has held are small business insurance underwriting for Nationwide Insurance and technology/e-commerce for Club Shop Peanuts & Golf.
Hobbies and passions include cars, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, sailing and spending time with family.
Nate also serves as Vice President for the Foscoe Grandfather Community Center and Park.
Kelsey Wright has a family history and mountain heritage rooted in the High Country. Her family has resided in this sepcial area for over 200 years. She is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a Bachelor’s in English. Previous roles she has held were customer service oriented in the public sector, and still holds an active role in her parents local store, Club Shop Peanuts & Golf.
Kelsey’s strengths in real estate are her local knowledge and strong ties to community. These allow her an ability to navigate through the complex process of buying or selling, and making it as seamless as possibly.
Nate & Kelsey Wright are residents of the Foscoe community, central to everything in the High Country. Our central location allows us to specialize in covering all of Avery, Watauga, parts of Ashe, parts of Burke and parts of Wilkes counties. We have represented buyers for homes and land in these areas which primarily makes up the High Country market.
A true local team, Kelsey’s family has resided in this community for over 200 years. Kelsey and Nate met as students at Appalachian State and have been together since. After graduating, we had a brief stint working in Raleigh, North Carolina, where Nate is from. During that time in our lives, we longed to return to the mountains to be a part of a community and a different pace of life.
In 2016, we took a leap of faith and left our corporate and governmental jobs to pursue entrepreneurial interests. We started our career in real estate alongside helping Kelsey’s parents 35 year old golf store and have not looked back.
The day we left Raleigh we picked up our dog Sailor, a Hungarian Vizsla, as a 10 week puppy. In 2019, we were blessed to grow our family with the addition of Harrison Wright. Every day is a new day, but we are thankful each day we get to call the High Country home and serve our clients in real estate.
Whether you are looking for your dream vacation home, trying to find a full time residence, or selling as you enter into a new chapter in life, the Wright Brokers would love to have the opportunity to work hard for you.
