My name is Big Frank Schuler. I have been in the housing business in Florida & North Carolina from 1981 to the present. I am a licensed Realtor/Broker in NC & GA and spent my last 16 years working with EXIT Realty, until June 2021. I was the Top Producer of The Year and in the Top Ten Agents of all EXIT offices in NC in the last 16 years. Now I have moved on to BIGGER and BETTER things! My wife, Lil' Mary Schuler, and I are happy to announce that we now own our own Real Estate office called BIG Realty! located at 889 West U.S 64, Murphy, NC 28906. Since opening our BIG Realty office, I have achieved Gold Status Awards for Sales Volume of $10,000,000 and Up in 2021 and 2022; and Silver Status Awards for Sales Volume of $5,000,000 to $9,999,999 in 2023 from the Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors for Western North Carolina. As Brokers/Owners of BIG Realty, we are growing, and focusing on providing top-notch customer service to our clients and customers. Finding a dream home for the clients is our goal and passion. I love my job! The reputation speaks for itself, I'm happy to see our clients happy. 
My expertise is helping YOU find your next home and sell your current homes. Buying your dream home is exciting, but it can be an intimidating process for many people, and I understand that, especially it involved many parties such as the local lenders, inspectors, builders, appraisers, surveyors, and other professionals to make sure the transaction process is smooth and stress-free.
Being originally from New England, MA, I moved to Murphy NC from Leesburg FL back in 1996 and I have never looked back. I enjoy hard work and busy schedules. I try to take a day off (Sunday) to go to the Church with my wife, Lil Mary, and I take every opportunity to be outdoors and play with our dog, Olaf. We love fishing and boating on the beautiful waters of Lake Hiwassee, Lake Nottely, Lake Chatuge, and Cherokee Lake. I also love Antique hunting at our local Flea Markets, riding on the backroads, and shooting the wildlife with my camera.
