Bobbie McCombs

Mobile: 828.443.8381

Bobbie was born and raised in a small town in Alabama and is a 1988 graduate of the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!).  After graduation, she moved to Morganton, North Carolina to design lingerie for Shadowline, Inc.  

In 1995, Bobbie got her NC real estate license and sold real estate for 16 years with C. Ervin & Associates Realty and served as broker in charge.  In 2011, she and  business partner, Starla Hoke formed McCombs & Hoke Real Estate.  

Bobbie and her family live just steps from downtown Morganton and spend as much time as possible at their Gingercake Acres mountain cabin.
