Mitchell Prime Properties held what could be called a double ribbon cutting and open house Thursday, marking the grand opening of both a business location and a new art gallery in Pilot Mountain.
The ribbon-cutting, at 103 East Main Street, drew 75 local officials, residents and members of the Mitchell Prime team, with so many later filtering in for the open house that it was extended from a two-hour event to five hours .
“We are very excited to open our fifth office in the beautiful town of Pilot Mountain,” said John-Mark M. Mitchell. “This is my hometown and also the hometown of Zach Dawson, the broker in charge of the Pilot Mountain office. We decided to purchase the building and make a stronger commitment to Pilot Mountain and also add a gallery of artwork in our office space. Our hope is to make better use of the space and combine various interactions with the community at one address.”
Joey Allen, an internationally recognized artist from Stokes County, is the first artist to be featured in the art gallery space. His work on display included more than 10 pieces of mixed media and sculpture.
“Mitchell Prime Properties commissioned Joey Allen to create an exclusive piece for our company, titled Mitch Money, to be prominently displayed in our conference area,” said Mitchell. “Mitchell Prime Properties is the largest independent luxury real estate firm in central and coastal North Carolina. The company broke records across the state. (Our) motto is, Sell luxury in all price ranges. The company defines luxury as the service they provide to their customers and loyal customers in North Carolina.”
The brokers representing the Pilot Mountain office are led by Dawson, Stephanie Montgomery, Andrea Utt and Jakob Holt. The four can be reached at the main office, 336-444-4353 or 336-416-2876.
