Murphy, NC – First Friday, June 3, 2022 – The Biggest One Yet!

Exit Realty’s own Corky Vetten selling stars for a scholarship program.

First Friday rolls around again, Friday, June 3, 2022. According to the Valley River Arts Guild President, Debra Vanderlaan, this ought to be the largest First Friday Art Walk ever with over 40 vendors participating from 5-8 PM. There will be music on the square by local favorite, Doctor Paul, and other music in various FFAW participating venues. The Murphy Art Center “the MAC”, will also be hosting live music right inside the entrance. Ms. Vanderlaan mentioned that the MAC and FFAW allows the public to buy a wide variety of art directly from the artists at a great savings.

The Cherokee County Arts Council scheduled Doctor Paul, a contestant on the NBC show The Voice, Season 9 to play for us beginning at 5 PM. To hear some of his music visit his YouTube channel, or his website DoctorPaulMusic.com.

Patriotic Stars for Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors Scholarship Program.

Drop by Exit Realty Mountain View Properties to buy a patriotic star. These stars are a project of the Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors to help local seniors from Cherokee, Clay, Graham County and Nantahala High School with the costs of some of their education. The link above will show you the 2022 scholarship winners. The larger 12″ star sells for $10, the smaller 8″ star sells for $5. Independence Day isn’t far off y’all, and we know, any time of the year, one, two, or a few of these would look great out on your Deck, Porch, Shed, or even inside your beautiful Mountain home! When you can spend money for a worthy cause, and decorate too, that’s a win/win for everyone!

Now if you’re visiting, what a great time to see Murphy at it’s finest. So come by, and come buy, support local businesses and artists. I’m sure the Exit Realty Team would be more than glad to help out, should you start thinking about buying or selling a home. Swing by the office on the square and say hello, at the Art Walk, or anytime we are open. We’d love to see you!

Murphy, NC Voting Info for New Resident’s

May 17th, 2022 is our Primary Election – Here’s some helpful information so you know all you need, to exercise your right to vote.


As you probably can tell by all the political candidates signs displayed all over the county, there’s an election coming up. If you have been a member of any of the Murphy or area wide Facebook groups, you know there are certainly some hot topics discussed in the political realm.

The population of Murphy, according to the 2020 Census is  1,687. ( * Reference 1) Cherokee County itself has a population of 29,028 (* Reference 2). We are a small town and a small county. Less voters means that every vote carries more weight. 

At Exit Realty Mountain View Properties, since we’re in the business of selling homes to people, we’re concerned that our customers, and others here have the resources you need to become an integral part of the Murphy, Cherokee County, and Tri-State Area.

Especially if you are new to the area, knowing whom to vote for can certainly be daunting. You don’t have the background knowledge that you probably did in your previous hometown. Plus, in the climate of the world today, you certainly want to vote for the people and issues that make a difference to you. But how do you know?

So in order to be a well educated voter, here are a few things that should help you make the choice of who will be moving forward to the general election, and who might, or might not, become your elected officials. 

Here’s some basic information on the election itself. Later on we will cover some resources where you can find out more information about who &/or what will be on the ballot at your address. There will also be some links to resources to learn more about the candidates you have to chose from.

Which Party you will vote for in the Primary – see https://www.cherokeecounty-nc.gov/441/Voter-Information

You will vote for the party you have chosen when you registered to vote. If you chose unaffiliated, you will have to chose to vote either a Republican or Democrat ballot.

Voter registration, early voting, and where to go to vote – see https://www.cherokeecounty-nc.gov/441/Voter-Information

The voter registration deadline was April, 22. However, if you vote early, during the One-Stop Early Voting Period, you can register and vote the same day up until May 14, 2022. May 14th is the last day for early voting before the May 17th Primary Election. You must vote at the Cherokee County Board of Elections Office at 40 Peachtree St # B, Murphy, NC 28906 https://www.cherokeecounty-nc.gov/441/Voter-Information

Ballotpedia will look up the candidates by your address. It has quite a bit of information and will show you both parties candidates so if you are unaffiliated, you will be better able to decide, which candidates you prefer. Therefore, which party you wish to vote for during the primary. According to the website “Ballotpedia is the digital encyclopedia of American politics and elections. Whose goal is to inform people about politics by providing accurate and objective information about politics at all levels of government.
