Our Agents

Ina Sams
Broker-In-Charge/ Owner

Ina Sams has been a Broker here in beautiful Jackson County, NC for over 20 years doing Residential, Land and Commercial properties. During this time she has seen the market explode and the market crash.  She can offer her experience and knowledge of the area for Buyers or Sellers to make an informed decision.


In addition to owning a successful real estate company, Ina is an active volunteer in our community. Being an ambassador for over 14 years with the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce has not only been a charitable experience but also an honor. It has allowed her to get to know the right resources and people for any situation.


As a respected, knowledgeable Broker, the Jackson County Clerk of Court occasionally calls upon her to be a Commissioner in the event there is a property dispute on division of value in an estate settlement.


Ina doesn’t want to just list your home, she wants to sell it! She will give you a truthful range to list your property and not just what you want to hear.  Others may give you a higher price expectation but your property may sit on the market for years.  You can count on Ina to always tell you the truth (good or bad).

“Buyers Beware”  is the North Carolina Law. Ina will guide you to ethical resources such inspectors or attorneys to oversee property legalities.
