Engel & Völkers Banner Elk


Our Shop

Our Banner Elk location is based directly opposite the gates of the prestigious Elk River gated community and we take pride in being Elk River’s preferred realtor.  Not only does our Banner Elk branch successfully sell some of the most beautiful and most exclusive properties in the High Country, we make a huge difference to our local community.  With 100% of our profits after expenses going to the ‘High Country Charitable Foundation,’ we operate as a non-profit organization with the role of helping people and animals in need in our local community.  Even though we are selling som of the most beautful houses in the most beautiful area, Avery County happens to be the least wealthy County in the state of North Carolina; Avery County is close to our heart and we are going to do all that we can to care for those living in our local area with us.


High Country Charitable Foundation

The vision of the ‘High Country Charitable Foundation’ is to provide for needy Avery County residents and animals by supporting local public charities and other private foundations.  Their goal is to use their efforts to keep expenses as low as possible with the majority of funds raised going to those in need.  The ‘High Country Charitable Foundation’ is committed to maintaining their outstanding culture of living by three core values: 

  1. Community Involvement:
    - We care about raising funds, along with donating time and talent to meet the critical needs of our neighbors and animals in need.             
  2. Excellence:
    - To operate with integrity and transparency: our goal is to strive to generate the biggest impact for our community.                                                     
  3. Value:
     - To provide value to our contributors by distributing every dollar we collect to local agencies serving the needy.  To provide value to the communities by maximizing our financial and volunteer resources.
