I taught elementary school for 25 years in Buxton on Hatteras Island.  Nancy and I fished the Gulf Stream on our commercial fishing vessel The Shearwater for eight years.  I also sold real estate for twenty years and have my own development in the maritime forest of Buxton Woods.  I am still a member of the Outer Banks Multiple Listing Service and continue to give excellent service to both buyers and sellers.

Mike Cowal Broker specializes in resales in the pristine Western North Carolina mountaintop development of Gateway Mountain. I live in this gated community which is close to Old fort,  Black Mountain, Lake Lure, Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Western North Carolina Mountains. Gateway Mountain has over 3,000 acres for you to enjoy.  Amenities include Lake George for swimming, kayaking, and fishing and our Standing Rock Waterfall Park for picnics and hiking and enjoying our waterfalls.  Come tour Gateway Mountain to find a log cabin, a custom built home, or a lot for your home.
