Jeff Brown has lived in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina since 1989. He and his wife Jon Ellen, raised their two children in a small town near Winston-Salem. They enjoyed the laid-back local lifestyle, but also took advantage of the amenities offered by the bigger cities in the area.
Jeff and Jon Ellen said the Piedmont Triad was the perfect place to raise their children. It was affordable and offered their family the best lifestyle. Trips to the beach in the summer, snow skiing in the winter, and the vibrant local culture which included local fall fairs, rafting, fishing, picnics, boating, and plenty of pool time, created a lifestyle full of fond memories. Now, the two look forward to making new memories there with their four grandchildren.
Jeff is a successful business owner and Realtor® with a lifelong interest in advancing affordable housing. It started in 1975 when he sold his first home, a mobile home, to a young married couple who were looking for affordable housing in rural WV. Forty Six years later he is still helping others fulfill their dream of home ownership.
Jeff is the owner of the United Country office in Winston-Salem and as their Broker in Charge (BIC), leads the local Realtor team. His team can help folks wanting to buy or sell country homes, farms, recreational property, luxury homes and estates, commercial property or any other of United Country's dozens of Specialty Property Groups (SPG) offered by United Country. He also serves his Virginia clients as a Realtor at United Country | Blueridge Land and Auction Co. in Floyd, VA.
Jeff and his team have a proprietary process that eliminates common surprises and gives his clients the peace of mind they deserve. With this process and the recent introduction of the hassle-free Auction Method of selling, Jeff foresees the opportunity for affordable homeownership as better than ever.
As mentioned, early in his career, Jeff sold mostly doublewide and modular homes that were permanently placed on rural, country land. He is an expert when it comes to Manufactured and Modular Homes.
Jeff loves hearing from folks who want to buy, sell, or invest in affordable homes. Please call, text, or email him. His cell number is 336-391-8094 and his email is JeffryJBrown@gmail.com
Elizabeth, her husband Devin of 30 years, and their beautiful daughter Hannah had their hearts captivated by both the area and the people when they moved to NC many years ago and decided to call it their home. They especially loved the wonderful education and the great colleges and universities in NC. Hannah, their daughter, is currently studying for her Masters degree in Crimimiology at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.
Devin is a sought-after General Contractor (GC) and Builder throughout the Southeast and the Eastern Seaboard. As such, he is a valuable source of information for Elizabeth when it comes to questions regarding construction. She jokingly laughs when she says, “My contractor is on speed dial and he takes my calls.”
Elizabeth, a native New Yorker, began her career as a professional dancer at the age of 15. She then proceeded to broaden her artistic skills by becoming an actor as well as a writer, director and choreographer through the years. She enjoyed maximizing her artistic skills and was very blessed to be taught by some of the best in the entertainment industry.
With many TV and film credits under her belt and partially due to COVID 19 imposed restrictions, Elizabeth concluded that it was time for a career shift. Becoming a NC Real Estate Broker was an easy choice. She is thankful for the opportunity to serve and always enjoys sharing and helping others with their real estate needs. Elizabeth hopes to one day be able to work with her husband, combining their skills in an innovative and unique way. As an actor, Elizabeth crafted many talents that are not available in the real estate agent pool. For example, when it comes to a Virtual Showing, no one does it better than her.
Elizabeth shares her exclusive talents with her clients, which include advertisements by a Producer, home presentations by an Actor, home staging created by a Director, and of course her professional relationships with the general public.
United Country Real Estate | Broker Associates is the real estate firm that Elizabeth chose to work with. She works in residential real estate and specifically country homes and estates. She was impressed by the values that United Country stands for and how much they care about the people they work with.
As a committed Christian, this key value stood out to her.
Elizabeth is committed to helping her clients achieve their goals and dreams, when buying or selling real estate. At the end of the transaction, Elizabeth’s personal goal is to see a smile on the face of every client and newfound friend.
