Meet The Team


Black Bear Realty, while being new in name and appearance, continues the legacy created by our founder Tim Johnson - former broker/owner of Front Porch Realty. We are intentionally a smaller company, allowing us to focus on our clients needs and wants. With the ability to provide service in all of WNC, we specialize in mountain homes and investment properties – especially in Buncombe and McDowell counties. Whether buying, selling or investing, take advantage of our knowledge in a number of areas and the local real estate market. BBR’s roots are founded on award winning customer service and attention to detail to our clients well after the deal has closed. We pride ourselves on creating an amazing personal relationship with our clients that carries forward into lasting friendships!
