About Us

Eric Reeves, Owner

As both a REALTOR® and High Country resident, I am uniquely aware of the challenges in the local real estate market. My educational background includes Appalachian State University (1991), in addition to attending the Harrington Institute for Interior Design (now Harrington College of Design) in Chicago (2002).  I have also had the good fortune of seeing design styles and trends from all over the world during the last 18 years, which has helped set apart my design aesthetic.  My “claim to fame” is having one of my remodeling and staging projects featured on an episode of HGTV’s “My House is Worth What?”, in which the listing had great success.  In addition, I was recently awarded as one of the "2019 75 Most Influential People in Real Estate Staging" by the Real Estate Staging Association!  I have also been awarded with the Houzz.com 2019 "Best of Houzz Award for Customer Service".
Along with my work as a Real Estate Broker and Interior Consultant, I was also recently inducted onto the Appalachian State University Alumni Council, which is an elected group of over 40 alumni who represent over 126,000 ASU alumni. I am also on the Alumni Advisory Board for the Sigma Upsilon chapter of my fraternity at Appalachian State University, Lambda Chi Alpha.
I currently reside in the beautiful Village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina with my family, which includes three rescue dogs; two Pugs and a Boston terrier.


Nicole Polito, Sales Executive 

Hello! My name is Nicole Polito.  I was raised in Waxhaw, NC, a suburb of Charlotte.  Graduating in December 2019, I am completing my degree in Marketing with a minor in Professional Sales at Appalachian State University.  I started working with reFresh Your Space in March of '19 as a way of combining my two favorite professional interests, real estate sales and home design.  By working closely with Eric on our many successful projects, I have learned all aspects of our Interior Consulting business.  As a result, I have recently transitioned into the position of Sales Executive.  I am excited about this opportunity, and have been busy introducing myself to our local Realtors.

When I am not at school or work, I enjoy spending time with my two dogs Levi and Finn. I’ve lived in Boone, NC since 2015 and absolutely love everything about the High Country.

I enjoy traveling whenever I get the chance. Whether it’s a day trip, or half-way across the world, I am always yearning to see as much of this beautiful planet as I can. I recently was lucky enough to visit Okinawa, Japan. I want to broaden my horizon and visit as many countries as I possibly can, and Japan was just the start!

Hi, I’m Anna!  I am a student at Appalachian State University, and  Interior Design is my passion!  My major is Interior Design and I am also working on my Minor in Apparel Design and Merchandising!

I am originally from Winston Salem, North Carolina, but I fell in love with the beautiful mountains of the High Country;  so Boone was an obvious decision for me to move.  I have three dogs and love spending time traveling.  So far, my favorite place in the World is Barcelona, Spain!
