Meet Our Team
We’re located in eastern Shasta County, in one of many small mountain valleys, between Mt. Shasta to the north and Lassen Peak to the south. Lots of blue skies, sunshine and clean air. This is the land of many spring-fed, cold, productive trophy trout fishing waterways — such as Fall River, Hat Creek, Pit River, Big Lake, Lake Britton, Baum Lake, Crystal Lake, and Burney Creek. These waterways also provide nesting grounds for wild geese, and many species of ducks. The Fall River Valley has a five-star championship golf course, among the many outdoor recreational opportunities available.
There are wilderness areas with trailheads for horseback riding, and many hiking trails, including the Pacific Crest Trail, which winds through the area. At an average elevation of around 3,200 feet, we have four full seasons, and usually just enough snow to be postcard perfect. The area abounds with wildlife, including deer, antelope, grey fox, bobcat, quail, wild turkey, and even an occasional bear and mountain lion. Bird watching will include the bald eagle, osprey, swan, pelican and crane, along with the usual jay, woodpecker, and many songbirds
One of our “claims to fame” is Burney Falls, which Teddy Roosevelt is said to have dubbed “the eighth wonder of the world!”
Co-owner and broker, Cory Halter will, once again, bring his diverse experience and education to High Country Real Estate. He has a broad spectrum of real estate experience, with a fresh, aggressive, respectful, and thorough approach to the business. He continues to keep abreast of the evolving market in the
Intermountain area and the North State.
Cory has a highly educated approach to the real estate business. He became a California licensed Real Estate Agent in 2002, received his Nevada Real Estate Agent’s license in 2003, and has been a California Real Estate Broker since 2004. He also holds a California General Building Contractor’s License (has remodeled and built several homes), a California Solar License, and a Bachelor’s Degree in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University. His education, along with his experience in the housing industry, gives him a unique and savvy understanding of real estate sales and marketing.
Cory’s young life was spent on the Northern California Coast. He was born and raised in the small logging and fishing community of Fort Bragg, CA, where he spent most of his time with his brother and sister outdoors; on ball fields, at the beach, in the woods, at the river, or on the ocean. His parents moved the family to Oregon at the onset of their college years. Upon graduating from college, Cory worked as an engineer in Nevada, and in South Lake Tahoe as a Century 21 realtor. When he and his wife decided to start a family they moved to Fall River Mills, then to Burney, where he became an associate broker at High Country Real Estate. They wanted their children to experience the life of growing up in a small community, to have an appreciation for the special people that live in the Intermountain area, and a respect for the outdoors. He now lives with his family between Oak Run and Palo Cedro, where they tend to their 2 cows, 4 horses, 2 pigs, 5 dogs, a cat, and a lot of chickens! Cory spends a great deal of his leisure time encouraging and supporting his boys in their education and sports. He volunteers as a coach and is a participant in several fundraisers throughout the year. He still enjoys fishing, hunting, water sports, running, football, biking, boating, and camping with his family and friends.
Cory will continue with the high level of ethics and quality service that High Country has always strived to provide. He will do so with a straight-forward, no-pressure, down-to-earth, honest approach. It is important to Cory that he has a clear understanding of his clients’ expectations, and that he provides his clients with a successful and satisfying real estate experience. Cory is happy to be back serving the intermountain area, and looks forward to being a positive and helpful participant in the community.
