Meet The Staff

Anderson Mountain Realty & Rental Staff

email hidden; JavaScript is requiredStay with Anderson Mountain Rentals and experience the difference. Our cabin rentals are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Blowing Rock, Historic Valle Crucis, Hawksnest and Todd, NC. The owner of Anderson Mountain Rentals, Wendy Raines, began coming to Boone from Eastern North Carolina when she was a child with her family on vacation. She later came to attend Appalachian State University. Her parents joined her in Boone, and soon thereafter she and her mother began working in the Real Estate and New Construction area of business. In the early 90’s they added the management of vacation rentals to their company. Having been vacation property renters themselves prior to moving to the Boone area gave the team at Anderson Mountains Rentals an edge. They knew what was important to the renters and what kept the renters coming back year after year and that has not changed.

Each time Wendy is previewing a prospective new cabin she remembers the excitement from years ago when her family would be following directions to a cabin rental. Her staff keeps in mind that families have often saved all year just to come on vacation and they strive to make each stay a memorable one. On many occasions renters are making their return visit plans before they even leave. The repeat renter discount program is in heavy use by the return renters that are proudly welcomed back.

Anderson Mountain Rentals chooses to keep a limited number of cabin rentals in order to provide continued personalized service. In addition to family and corporate retreats Anderson Rentals offers pet friendly homes so that no member of the family gets left at home.

“We invite you to stay only once…the experience will bring you back.”

Please join us in welcoming Mr. Grant Mastin to the Anderson Mountain Realty & Rentals team and family. Gragrantprofilent and his wife, Pam, are both natives of Jonesville, NC located in the northwestern corner of Yadkin County and both have deep roots in the foothills of the
Blue Ridge Mountains. Both of them have a deep love of the Blue Ridge Mountains having spent many days in the mountains during their youth and adult years. Grant also spent two years in the early 70’s delivering groceries in Wilkes, Alleghany, Ashe, and Watauga counties for a wholesale grocery company out of Elkin, NC and he knows much of the High Country like the back of his hand.
Since those early days, Grant has obtained an undergraduate and graduate degrees in business and economics from High Point University and spent 25 years working for AMP Incorporated and Tyco Electronics as an engineer and manager. After taking an early retirement in 2001, Grant and Pam
relocated from Greensboro, NC to Deep Gap and Powder Horn Mountain, where they currently reside. Grant managed Powder Horn, one of the High Country’s oldest and most well established gated resort and residential communities, from mid 2001 to late 2013, including establishing and operating an in house real estate sales and rental program. During its 5 year heyday, the in-house program sold over 110 lots and 46 homes in Powder Horn and managed as many as 25 rental properties for their owners.
Grant has been an Associate Broker-Realtor® with Parker Mountain Properties, Inc. since late 2013. Grant and Pam have two grown children, Neil and Amanda, who are both married and live in Raleigh, NC and Bremerton, WA, respectively, with their spouses. They also have two five year old
grandchildren, twins Penelope and Isaak, who live in Raleigh and are the joy of their lives.
Their love of the High Country and all it has to offer has only grown since relocating to the area and making it their home. Grant is looking forward to his new role with our team and helping to grow our real estate sales program to compliment our thriving rental program.
