Shannon Neal, Founder, High Point Furniture Shopping Concierge and Guide
“Because I grew up in North Carolina and have lived here, promoting furniture all my adult life, this is not a job for me, but a passion. Introducing clients to the greatest selection and best values in furniture and home furnishings is something I love to do.” – Shannon Neal
Born and raised in North Carolina, Shannon Neal has more than 25 years’ experience in the furniture/home furnishings industry. A former International Trade Specialist with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, Shannon traveled the globe promoting North Carolina’s products. His work establishing agent, distributor, importer, and retailer contacts took him to U.S. embassies and consulates in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Japan, to name but a few. And as the Director of the NC Furniture Export Office, Shannon again traveled the world promoting his home state’s furniture and furnishings.
Happily married for more than two decades and living in a home full of wonderful family antiques, Shannon experienced an epiphany at age 40 and decided to start over.
“My future was not another 20 years retiring as a bureaucrat,” says Shannon. “Instead, I wanted to help others discover the treasures I knew were right here in the Piedmont Triad area—from any type of home furnishing to all the great restaurants, places to stay, and the friendly people and quality of life this area offers.”

“We live in the country of Panama and…in the process of attempting to map out places that all six of our buyers might be interested in visiting, I ran across whereyouneedtogotours.com. You saved our lives, as far as the trip went. I don’t know how to describe our satisfaction. Shannon met us at the airport, took us to our hotel, and gave us a list of the showrooms where he had made appointments for us from the list of items that we thought we would be interested in. One of the most important things Shannon arranged was the consolidation of our goods with an international freight forwarder/consolidator, which could not have been better.
We were there for four days, and without Shannon’s organization we would never have fulfilled our goals, both in terms of time and discounts we received because of his recommendation. I would never attempt shopping [in High Point] again, without his help. I give him a five-star rating.”
