The name Freestone Properties comes from the type of the mountain streams located all over Western North Carolina. “Freestone” streams are the result of rocks and boulders eroding and becoming rounded by the constant flow of water. These rocks often become dislodged, and such “free stones” contribute to the ever-changing nature of the stream.
As a fly fisherman, I have always been intrigued by the many moving parts within each stream’s ecosystem, and the ways that these parts work together. My idea for the name Freestone Properties was originally a way to incorporate my passion for the outdoors into our business. But then the connection between freestone mountain streams and real estate also became apparent. Just like freestone streams, the real estate industry is always changing. And when all the pieces work together to help our clients reach their goals, it is a very rewarding experience. – Scott Russell, Founder
