It’s Called Mountain Air Realty for a Reason

Debbie Phillips

Debbie joined the Mountain Air team in 2019 and for the past 5 years, she has worked alongside Becky Stiles, her mentor, and Broker-in-charge, to learn and grow in the knowledge and understanding of Mountain Air properties, its history, and what makes Mountain Air distinctively different from other mountain communities. Debbie is committed to helping her real estate guests discover for themselves the unparalleled beauty and charm of Mountain Air.

Except for ten years spent as a musician residing in Nashville, Tennessee, she has lived in Yancey County for most of her adult life and raised her two children here. Before coming to Mountain Air, Debbie worked for a local real estate attorney and she was co-owner of a casual/upscale downtown eatery. She continues to perform in the area, and on the mountain, as a Jazz and Americana vocalist.

Debbie’s dad, Zeb Phillips, was the master craftsman who built most of the rustic split rail fences on Mountain Air, including the long, winding stretch of fencing on Mountain Air Drive.
