Find Stunning WNC Mountain Real Estate with Looking Glass Realty

2022 Best of the Blue Ridge Winner!

Broker-in-Charge and co-founder of Looking Glass Realty Asheville, Adam Skoog, has been exploring the magical Blue Ridge mountains for as long as he can remember. Born and raised in North Carolina, Skoog comes from a family of dedicated entrepreneurs who instilled in him the importance of honesty, focus, and commitment. Driven by these values, his ventures in real estate met with early success.

When he was introduced to local business owner Dylan Glasgow, he recognized an entrepreneur whose business ideals aligned with his own. Glasgow grew up in a family-run bed and breakfast in Asheville and knows the city’s neighborhoods by heart. In 2016, he opened The Liberty House Cafe in order to create a space that would foster a sense of community for locals.

A shared love of mountain biking led to friendship and friendship quickly turned to collaboration. Together, the young partners officially opened the doors to the Asheville branch of Looking Glass Realty in 2019. It’s their vision to offer a unique space for creative, hardworking agents to thrive.
