Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 11.28.17 AMThere’s a big movement across the US to re-invigorate small town life and small local businesses.  The town of Tryon offers small town living in a beautiful, affordable small town setting – and it’s the real thing.  Historic, never over developed, with the real beauty and intergity that first appealed to settlers for centuries.  The town itself has about 1700 full time residents – many homes are owned as second or vacation homes by families in nearby cities.

Tryon is a perfect place to open a small business to serve locals, and for business commuters who want to live and raise their kids in a small town.  Tryon is under or within 2-3 hours of  Atlanta, Asheville, Charlotte, Greenville, and Spartanburg.  Many residents commute locally or through airports. Tryon Elementary is within walking distance of downtown and nearby lovely, leafy neighborhoods.  Average student teacher ratio is 12:1 – last school year 2015-2016 there were 684 students in Polk County – approximately 100 per grade in the high school.  Polk county is also one of only a few which offers Early College Program where college bound students can graduate high school with a dual degree from community college and enter any NC state university as a junior.

About Lynne Perlmutter

Lynne practically grew up in Pisgah Forest, even though she was born and raised in Miami. She finally moved to NC full time with her young family so they could know that indescribable feeling you get sitting on a big rock in the middle of a gently rushing river in the deep woods. Little by little she worked her way back to the woods via Charlotte and towards Tryon thru Bright’s Creek in nearby Mill Spring. With Tryon Equestrian Center coming to town, she knew now was the time to start an office. She is Managing Broker of Cielo Real Estate in LOVELY downtown Tryon. Together with the rest of Cielo's founding brokers and agents, she is introducing a fresh, technologically savvy and world class marketing experience to this very beautiful, quiet corner of the world. Lynne was educated at the prestigious Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove, Florida. She attended Vanderbilt University, University of Paris, Sorbonne, and graduated with a BA from The University of Florida. She began her career assistant producing TV commercials, then started the Financial Public Relations division of a boutique investment banking firm in Miami. In 1990, she co-founded Miami O Guia, the first glossy full sized up market guide to Miami, written in Portuguese, specifically targeted to the then surging influx of wealthy Brazilian visitors. In 2000, she started her career in real estate as a residential appraiser then as an agent at EWM Realty in Miami. Her family re-located to Charlotte in 2007, and during the market downturn she worked in residential sales, helping investors build rental portfolios. As the market started to recover, she became more interested in second home and vacation home properties in the western NC mountains. This niche market has proven to be a treasure trove of undervalued properties which have yet to recover to pre-bubble prices. Below market values, a temperate climate, dream location, a surge in the number of empty nesters and retires looking to make their next move, and the sudden global recognition from Tryon Equestrian Center, makes Tyron the place to be. Charities: Yeti Robotics, Jazz Arts Initiative, Bruce Irons Camp Fund, Habitat for Humanity - Charlotte, Eagles Nest Foundation, Shake-A-Leg Miami. Experience: Filmworks Miami, WLRN-TV - Miami Miami O-Guia, South Florid Appraisal Services, EWM Realtors - Miami, Helen Adams Realty-Charlotte, NC
