Welcome to Addison Realty Advisors

Addison Realty Advisors is a boutique real estate firm based in Charlotte, North Carolina established to advise buyer and seller clients of timberland, farms and other rural properties in the Carolinas.  Our principles and associates are home grown natives with a knowledge and understanding of the local market for land, timber, wildlife, outdoor recreation and other attributes of real property around the Carolinas.  With the combined experience of over forty years in forestry and real estate brokerage and development, we bring a unique set of qualifications to insure successful outcomes for our clients.  Our services begin and end with our core values: loyalty, honesty, integrity and hard work.


Sometimes it is not as simple as land value plus timber value equals market value.  Improvements, access, timber value, stand conditions, timber rights, mineral rights, boundary disputes and environmental issues among others can impact market value and complicate a real estate deal.  Transactions range from the simple to the complex and everywhere in between.  At Addison we enjoy the challenges of the latter, and with our experience we often can transform those into the former. Experience, market knowledge, attention to detail, creativity, developing alternatives and follow through provide our clients with a satisfying outcome.  Our specialized experience in the Carolinas affords our clients the very best with service you can count on.



Our buyer clients represent a broad range of objectives.  Some are interested purely in adding a timberland component to their investment portfolio.  They recognize this asset class as a worthy investment that offers predictable income, continuous biological growth, long term appreciation and an asset that simply will not “evaporate”. Others may be looking for a personal recreational tract or an opportunity to create a family legacy that allows for farming, hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, four wheeling and other activities; all the while providing a long term proven investment decision.  There are few family experiences that are more bonding than enjoying the outdoors together.

Our job is to match the criteria of our buyer client to the right property at the best possible price.  This begins with listening.  With our knowledge of available properties, information on selected properties closing matching each criterion is presented.  Property tours are conducted for those of interest.  This process continues until there is a property worthy of an offer.



We offer our seller clients the very best in achieving the successful disposition of their property at the highest possible value.  We start with an honest evaluation of the property’s value, an aggressive marketing plan, thorough market exposure, monthly reporting and ultimately a seamless closing.  There needs to be a balance between achieving top dollar and pricing property right the first time.  Pricing it high and then doing price reductions doesn’t help anyone but the buyer.  Listed properties are exposed to the market place locally through the Charlotte Region of Commercial Board of Realtors and the Multiple Listing Service, regionally through our vast contacts of other brokers who focus on similar properties, nationally through posting information on Landwatch.com as well as this web site.  Attractive and professional marketing material is developed for each property that includes photographs, location maps, GPS coordinates, aerial photography, topographic maps as well as timber and soil type maps when appropriate.  Professional signage is placed on all listed properties when permitted by the seller, however we believe very few properties are sold as a result of For Sale signs with a phone number.  It takes thorough market exposure.


Addison Realty Advisors is dedicated to providing you with the best possible comprehensive real estate service available.  Whether you are looking to buy or sell, we will put our knowledge and experience to work for you. We invite you to explore this web site and view our listings.  You may wish to check back with us often as our listings change, or if you prefer, you can submit a quick and easy form by clicking on the “Contact Us” link at left, and a member of our team will contact you. Whether you are looking to find a weekend getaway, add a timberland component to your investment portfolio or sell your property we hope you will consider Addison Realty Advisors.
