ASHEVILLE, N.C. / May 11, 2021 – Weichert, Realtors® – Unlimited agent Nedra Creason helped her clients recently close on the purchase of the iconic Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa located just outside of Asheville. The resort, which opened in 1926 and is the one of the area’s main attractions to guests from all around the world, sold for $7,174,350, marking the largest real estate transaction in company history for Weichert, Realtors® – Unlimited.
Creason was connected to buyers Grey Raines and David Tart, managing partners of Raines Hospitality, through a Weichert-owned lead generation resource that’s available to Weichert affiliated offices. With Raines and Tart being very passionate about golf and looking for land they could develop, Creason helped match them with the Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa. She then performed her due diligence in gathering information to help her clients make an informed decision on the purchase.
“I’m very proud to have served Grey and David in their purchase of the Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa,” commented Creason. “I’m looking forward to the exciting changes to come with the new ownership and everything it will provide for the community.”
Raines Hospitality is one of the Southeast’s premier, hospitality management, development, and investment groups, offering a comprehensive approach to their impressive property portfolio and client base that spans the region.
The new owners have plans to remodel the resort while keeping things in line with the property’s history. They also hope to develop some of the land, which will be very beneficial for the county’s real estate market.
