Our Story

We believe you should always want more out of life.

We’re a father-daughter duo dedicated to building dynamic, inclusive communities that foster happy and fulfilling lives for residents and visitors alike. Our combined 49 years of experience has taught us how to build functional mixed-use living spaces that connect people, place, and nature. Dan spent years designing and developing resorts in the Caribbean, where he refined his approach to combining natural attractions with luxury amenities and efficient, sustainable land use.  Meanwhile, AnMaree’s background as a product designer provides the energy, creative thinking, and technological prowess of a startup.

These experiences provide the inspiration for our concept of “live, earn, play, stay.” This concept embodies the values of adventure, community, wealth, security, and fun that we infuse into every aspect of Whisper Hills. It’s a place where people can purchase a home, earn a return on their investment, and become part of a community. Whisper Hills is the best-kept secret in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
