Welcome to our new General Manager

Creston Development, LLC is pleased to welcome John Haynes as the new General Manager representing the development company within Creston.

John is a 27 year real estate veteran having started in the appraisal business before becoming a corporate acquisitions officer for two Fortune 500 companies.  He later ventured out on his own and has developed five communities here in North Carolina, including The Headwaters at Banner Elk, a 900 acre second home development in the North Carolina High Country.  During John's tenure there from 2005 to 2010, he oversaw the development of $14 million of amenities and infrastructure as well as the sale of more than $33 million of real estate.  His marketing prowess was recognized by area professionals as being among the best and the result is that Headwaters outsold its direct competitors by a large margin.  Dozens of letters of reference attest to his character and skills.

John has handled all aspects of land development including design, construction, marketing, sales and permitting including the management of three property owners associations.  He understands buyers and has the goal of helping them find the right property and then guide them through the process.

John is a licensed North Carolina Real Estate Broker and his company, Trinity Advisors, Ltd. is now the exclusive real estate representative for Creston Development, LLC.  He can be reached at the Creston office by calling 828-668-4400 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
