Choosing a Realtor that you can work with and trust is very important. They are assisting you with buying or selling of one of your largest assets. Your Realtor is your advocate in this sale. My goal with every real estate transaction is to make the process enjoyable and to ensure my clients leave the closing table with smiles on their face.
My husband and I have made our home in the peaceful mountains of Western North Carolina since 1992 where we worked together in the running of our home remodeling business. Together we have built 4 homes and renovated two others as well as renovated countless homes for clients. I have always taken an active part in the design and building of these homes. From hanging ridge rafters to laying hardwood floors, I have gained a great deal of respect and understanding of what goes into a well-built home.
This love of homes and home construction is what led me to become a Real Estate Broker in 2003 and later a General Contractor. I am also active in canine sports, competing with my golden retrievers and organizing obedience trials as well as serving on the board (past treasurer) of the Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club. In addition, I am a stained glass artist and I take pride and satisfaction in designing and creating glass art that I often donate to benefit rescues and canine health research.
Since starting my Real Estate Career long ago, I have won many sales awards and more importantly to me, several Quality Service Awards. For several years I was Broker in Charge of a small office, managing 9 other agents. Feeling the need to get back to what I love about real estate, I stepped down as the managing broker in 2017 so I could concentrate on my clients and their needs as a Broker Associate. I am now working with Sterling Real Estate Partners because of their creativity, marketing technology, customer service, and their stellar reputation in Asheville and surrounding markets. I specialize in Residential Homes, Small Farms, and Land Tracks with a special passion for Vintage Homes. When marketing a Vintage home, or helping a buyer with a purchase of one, you can expect a full essay on the “genealogy” of your home. One of my many obsessions is tracking the history of Asheville’s older homes. My years working as a carpenter’s assistant as well as my beginnings in the marketing field will be used to your benefit when you are selling or buying a home. Of course for dog owners, my 25+ years of training and competing with my own dogs has given me an understanding that often a fenced yard for Puppy is not enough. Sometimes we need a bit more. For both sellers and buyers, I recognize the unique needs that many of us have for ourselves and with our homes.
