Member of the Month Mike Lefort

Distinctive Developers, LLC


 We all have the bucket list of dreams to fulfill, Mike Lefort of Distinctive Developers, LLC is living in his. After his time in the Navy, Mike and his wife lived in Atlanta where he worked as an engineer in the paper industry for 16 years. He and his wife fell in love with the mountains and purchased a home in what is now Winding Creek Farm Mountain Estates.

Five years later, Mike Lefort purchased an additional parcel as he and his wife were spending every weekend in the mountains and loving the peaceful mountain views. Mike had always wanted to build his own home, so he and his small crew, Distinctive Developers, LLC, built the home in which he now lives in Winding Creek Farm Mountains Estates. Mike continues to offer custom and spec homes held to the high standards of his own home in his well planned development.


Distinctive Developers, LLC has gone to great lengths to offer roads that are easily accessible regardless of weather. There are no switchbacks, narrow places, or dangerously steep sections of road throughout Winding Creek Farm. The lots have been mapped to offer maximum privacy and mountain views. The location of the development is in the Ranger Community, centrally located between Murphy, NC and Blue Ridge, GA.


Mike Lefort and his wife love to spend time at the lake with their two kids and grandchildren. While they still enjoy visits to Florida in the winter months, their plan is to retire in the mountains. Distinctive Developers has created floor plans that are retirement-friendly with room for guests and family to visit. There are currently two homes available to purchase and lots ready for custom homes. Contact Mike Lefort of Distinctive Developers, LLC and get one step closer to fulfilling your dream in the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina.
