We are repeat customers. And we are very satisfied! The Poltrock Team at REMAX in Murphy, NC listed and closed on our home in just 61 days!! We were a bit worried when we heard the average home sale in that area was 9 months, but we knew that if anyone could sell our home, John could! Being out-of-state owners can make real estate transactions more stressful, but John was always prompt in addressing all our concerns and so patient with all our questions. John posted wonderful pictures of our home and property. Sometimes when we view the other properties for sale online, we cringe at the photos of a ladder or paint cans sitting in the middle of an otherwise well-kept room. John takes the time to make sure your property is well advertised and constantly keeps you up to date. He is such a hardworking, friendly, and likeable guy! We would most definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.Eric and Sue Windseth Clearwater, FL
We discovered The Poltrock Team in their Country Roads Ad in the Cherokee Scout and we chose them because they are incredibly aggressive and professional.
We have found that The Poltrock Team is the most dedicated, hardest working, honest, and knowledgeable real estate team I have ever came in contact with and done business with out of the six local real estate companies we have had under contract to buy or sell any real estate we have had.
For our money, The Poltrock Team at REMAX is the ONLY way to go. If you want success, if you want to sell, or if you want to buy real estate. They do everything they say they will do and keep you informed through the entire process. We will absolutely use you again.Vernon and Edna Davis Formerly of Brasstown NC and now Hayesville NC
We found out about The Poltrock Team at REMAX in Murphy because they sold a piece of land that adjoined our property. We wanted to sell our real estate and sell it quick, and they did it! They knew the perfect buyer and sold the property before it ever went on the open market. They took excellent care of us, were extremely efficient, and gave us service with a smile. I absolutely would use them again and wish we had more property there in Murphy they could sell for us!Mark and Linda McCormick Port Saint Lucie, FL
The Poltrock Team is very conscientious and helpful in every way. It was a pleasure having them handle the sale of my land in Murphy NC. I didn’t think it would be an easy piece of property to sell, and they sold it fast – 4 days fast! They always kept me informed as to what was going on and I am 100% satisfied with the results they got me. Not only that, they even made a donation to The Children’s Miracle Network from their proceeds of the sale – thank you.Shirlee Dickson Pembroke Pines, FL

We found The Poltrock Team from a very trusted financial advisor, and once we met with John, we knew he was the right man to sell our house in Murphy, NC. He had the right attitude, was very straight forward, and kept all his promises!
Being out of town most of the time, we were very pleased with The Poltrock Team in the timeliness of both the communications an sale of the property. We had more showings in 6 months from RE/MAX than we did in three years from three other Realtors. The fact we had two makes make offers on the property at the same time was a huge plus too!
Great work!Blair and Diane Schrader West Palm Beach, FL
As I was laying in bed the other night watching an episode of Pawn Stars on the History Channel, I saw where one of the guys bought an old Coca-Cola machine that was a prop for sales guys back in the 1930’s. It was rusted, beaten up, and looked pretty bad. They bought it for $100 and went to a restoration specialist and got it cleaned up for $300 or so bucks. It looked brand new! It went from being worth $1,000 being a rust bucket to being worth $2,500 cleaned up! That’s a 500% return on his $300! I thought to myself, “I wish I could find a neat investment like that…”
Truth is, I work in it every day! Your house is one of the largest investments you and I will ever make. You spend tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars on it. You fix it up, put your own personal touches in it, and make it better than when you bought it or built it. Your house works the same exact way as that rusty old Coca-Cola machine. There are certain things you can do to make it show like a million bucks and ultimately cause it to sell faster and for more money than if you didn’t.
For example, a couple just moved out of their home and listed it with us and wanted to make sure that it sold fast and wanted to know what they could do to make it happen.
- Pressure wash with a qualified professional. $175 later, the decks look brand new and the house looks like a showcase.
- Clean. Even though its vacant, $100 later, it looks totally different.
They’ve invested less than $300 and its going to make their home sell faster and for a higher price than it would without. Every case and every home is different, so there’s places you can invest your money to make your home go for the best possible scenario.
Also be receptive. Everyone asks, “what can I do to my home?” What I find is that even though the words come out of everyone’s mouth, they don’t usually mean it. Whether its because they don’t want to spend the money or just don’t feel like putting forth the effort, most people don’t want to do anything. Ask the question, do the suggestions, and don’t get mad at the messenger! We give suggestions to help you, not hurt your feelings, so please don’t take it that way. Uncle Vern won’t be mad at you if take his picture down for a few months while you’re selling the house!
When you’re ready to sell your house, give us a call. We can guide you through the entire process of selling your house, provide tips and things to do to make your house sell the best, and get you to the closing table! If you want to know what it’s like to work with us, be sure to read our Testimonials to The Poltrock Team.

There are a lot of home owners who wrestle with the question, “Should I list and sell my home in Murphy NC fully furnished?” When it comes to working with real estate buyers, this question doesn’t have a direct answer because there are a couple considerations that come in to play.
Is your furniture nice and will it target your likely buyer? Then you certainly need to consider the option of selling it furnished. If it’s cabin furniture in a nice chalet or something of that nature, then you’d better believe it will help. If you want to keep some pieces for yourself, you need to say so in the listing or leave a “Detail Sheet” that will specifically tell them what goes and doesn’t.
Does it clash? You don’t want Florida beach decor in a mountain cabin, and believe me, people try to. If it doesn’t fit the look and style of your home, it’s likely that it will hurt you and you need to get rid of it.
Is the furniture junk you don’t want to move? Although an abrupt and direct question, if its junk and you don’t want it either, the buyer probably doesn’t want it either. In fact, it may be advantageous to get rid of your furniture and spruce it up. You can donate it to many organizations who will appreciate it, like Christian Love Ministries. You’re paying for professional service, so ask your Realtor what to do – what to keep, get rid of, etc.
Not sure – it’s not junk and not sure if the buyer will want it either? Ask your Realtor. Also, I would encourage you to separate the furnishings from your listing. In other words, put “Furnishings Negotiable” on the listing. That way, if they want them, you can work out a separate agreement while keeping them out of the real estate side.
Each case can be different, so be sure to hire a professional who can not only sell your home in the mountains – but can also guide you through the process and coach you on how to capitalize the best from your investment. If you don’t have a Realtor, call us!
If we had to sum up John Poltrock in one word, it would probably be integrity. We came to John after having been with 2 other Realtors for 10 months. The previous Realtors did almost nothing to promote or sell our house. We did not see Realtors in a very positive light after our negative experiences with the previous ineffective Realtors.
We read about the Poltrocks on the Internet, about their credentials and success rate, and hoped we were making the right decision in choosing them. It was hard to stay positive when the market was so poor. I believe when John took over our property, there were approximately 800 houses for sale in the Murphy area and over 200 were 2 bedroom 2 bath chalets like ours. We were very discouraged at times and John kept us pumped up.
We were angry and annoyed at times when difficult decisions had to be made, but John always dealt very tactfully and professionally with us taking great patience to explain the housing market and the necessity of doing things to keep our house in the running. We loved our house and had taken very loving care of it since originally we had planned to retire in Murphy. Plans changed, however, and we had to put our house on the market in the worst of times. It seemed like a very long struggle, and it was considering we paid an extra mortgage for 18 months (10 months before John took our house over, then 8 months until it was sold).
John got our house up and out there right from the start. He used all kinds of techniques and was diligent in promoting our house. We were very happy to see potential buyers finally coming through our house. It still took a long time to get THE buyer, but there were so many times that we thought it would just never sell, even though it is a beautiful, new house in a great subdivision. John’s efforts never wavered.
When the right buyers did come along, there were still difficult decisions to make. But John continued to patiently explain things and encourage us in the direction that would complete the sale. We are very happy that we listened to John because he knew what he was talking about and he gave us excellent advice. My only regret is that we didn’t find him 10 months sooner. My husband and I would wholeheartedly recommend The Poltrock Team to anyone who wants to get their house sold.
P.S. John is a really nice guy, too.John & Linda Tuttle Pinellas Park, Florida
John and Jessica Poltrock provided excellent service to us while we were looking for our mountain property. John me us after hours to look at one piece of land we were interested in. Once we put our offer to purchase on the property, he continue to give us updates on the progress of our purchase until it closed. John always made himself available and helpful for us an our records. I would recommend The Poltrock Team to anyone looking for real estate, to buy or sell.
The Poltrock Team ROCKS!James and Cheryl Palmer South Carolina
We began working with The POLTROCK TEAM at REMAX in Murphy NC and Kelly Hopkins to sell the remaining lots we own in Eagle Mountain. It’s been great working iwth them! They are honest with the prices we can sell our land for and were they right! We’ve begun selling lots again when they were stagnant on the market – they really help seal the deal! We will absolutely continue to use them to get our real estate SOLD – they’re a 10 in my book!-Ken McBride Eagle Mountain Properties Blairsville, GA
