Chief Operating Officer
Raised and educated less than two hours from Asheville, Joe then spent four years in Alaska where he met his wife Tre. The next 24 years were spent raising their family while honing his sales, marketing and development skills with a premier custom home builder in Sarasota, Florida. When Joe left Florida he held the position of Director of Tampa Bay Region.
“Our plans were always to return to NC and when the right opportunity presented itself – we didn’t hesitate.”
Now in his 9th year at Balsam Mountain Preserve, Joe serves as Chief Operating Officer as well as oversees sales and marketing efforts. “We have so much exciting development at Balsam in the coming months and years,” he says. “I honestly can’t wait to get to work each day!”
Entering his seventh year at Balsam Mountain Preserve, Drew brings a wealth of knowledge to the Sales & Marketing Team after previously serving for five years in the Club, most recently as the Head Golf Professional. After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a double major in Management & Marketing and a minor in Club Management, Drew found his way to Balsam.
