Stephanie Sainz • Buyer Specialist
While I am not lucky enough to be a native of Franklin, North Carolina, my family and I have been vacationing here for the last 15 years and finally got the opportunity to relocate to the place we love best 3 years ago! As they say, 'I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could'! My husband and I have 6 terrific children that we are thrilled to be raising in a small town. We enjoy every bit of what our beautiful area has to offer!
After moving to Franklin, I stepped into the vacation rental business as a private owner. Providing excellent hospitality and service to my guests over the past 3 years, led me to pursue my real estate license and embark on a new career. I feel my experience in customer service and fostering relationships is a benefit I bring to the table. I am excited about being a part of the real estate industry and I look forward to working with you!

What Our Clients are Saying About Derik
We want to extend our appreciation for all that you and your company did in making the purchase of our new home so simple. At the recommendation of my sisters, Lynda and Carol, we first contacted your office through your web pages. We were able to easily look through available properties and get a short list ready for our trip to your area. I was expecting to have to make several trips, not only to locate a home, but to wade through all the paperwork and scheduling normally required for a home purchase. We scheduled two days of home visits with Derik Shuler and we were pleasantly surprised at his organization and planning for our viewings. By seeing our list of interesting properties, he was able to direct us towards homes that we were interested in. We found a new home before lunch on the first day and after checking out a couple more "potentials" we decided to go ahead and set up an earnest money contract. Derik was able to recommend what we needed to do, set up a home inspection and termite inspection and provided us with a list of people we needed to see to get things moving. Everyone that we contacted was friendly and professional and the process flew by. Before we left for home we had set up everything with the bank and insurance company, located a lawyer and even had names for people to make minor repairs on the property. We were able to be with the home inspector while we were there and had the full report from both the home inspector and the termite inspector within two days of arriving back home. This is my fifth home purchase and Grace's third and by far this is the best experience and smoothest real estate transaction we have had.
Thank you and Merry Christmas.

We had a really positive experience buying our home from Keller Williams Realty, in Franklin, last month! As we live in Florida, we contacted Derik Shuler, by email, about six weeks before our trip to Franklin. He began sending us listings that would fit our parameters. At that time, we really weren't sure what all of these parameters were. Bless him for being patient with us as we tried to "fine tune" our desires! When we arrived in Franklin and met Derik, we discovered we couldn't have found a better agent! Within three days of our arriving, Derik found us our home! He was thorough, patient, punctual, and followed through with everything during our out of state closing. He was very knowledgeable and if he didn't know the answer he took the time to find it. His caring attitude was more than apparent and this quality, along with his other attributes made him an exceptional agent. We are so thankful that we found him!!!

My name is Tammy Stingone and my husband and I had been working with Derik to purchase our home through your office. We want to thank you for having Derik Shuler on your team. Derik treated us with dignity, respect, and professionalism. We cannot be happier that we bought our home through Derik. He has demonstrated great patience in our home search, offered great advise, and was available for any needs that arouse. We wanted you to know directly how appreciative we are for your company and having Derik as our real estate agent.
We will be recommending Derik and your office for future clients.
Proud homeowners in Franklin, NC
Jessica Mason • Buyer Specialist
I am a native to Macon County. I went to Western Carolina University where I received a BSBA with a focus in Marketing and Sales. I love WNC and have been very fortunate to stay in the mountains and do what I love for a career. Upon graduation I had a sales job that allowed me to work with people all over the United States. I have also worked on the advertising side of marketing where I have helped small businesses gain more exposure and increase their sales. With my sales and marketing experience and customer service experience I felt that Real Estate would be a natural fit for me. I love helping people achieve their goals like finding their first home or the perfect investment property. I am passionate about my hometown and I would love to help you find your perfect home in the beautiful mountains of NC.

Victor Keller • Buyer Specialist
My vast knowledge and varied experience in Real Estate transactions began at an early age. After studying land surveying and civil engineering at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia, I immediately developed my first subdivision in NE Georgia, and began building custom homes. Extensive research into Green Building construction paved the way to a regional sales position for an International Energy Efficient building materials company, where I consulted with 100’s of homeowners and contractors. For many years, I traveled extensively throughout North and South America, enabling me to communicate with a diverse culture. My varied Real Estate experiences, a professional approach to business and diligent work ethic will allow me to perform to your utmost satisfaction. As an Owner / Partner in the Franklin NC, Keller Williams Realty franchise and Evelyn Owens Team member, I promise to earn your trust and respect by displaying loyalty, obedience, accountability and dedication, ensuring that I fulfill your Real Estate dreams and we will have a long successful relationship.

Todd Duvall • Buyer Specialist
As a native of Macon County, I proudly call Franklin, North Carolina home. I am a veteran of the United States Navy and served during the first Iraqi war, Desert Storm / Desert Shield. Shortly after leaving the Navy, I began a career in banking that I enjoyed for the next 17 years. During my banking career, I originated commercial, retail and secondary market loans. Most recently, I have been a HUD Certified Housing Counselor.
I believe my extensive background of lending in Western North Carolina gives me a unique understanding the ever-changing Real Estate Market and why calling Franklin, NC, home means so much to my neighbors.
