Whether I am marketing a one-acre lot or a million-dollar estate, I give every property the same attention. I love my work and I enjoy the challenge that comes with marketing, contracting, and closing on a sale.

“Susan Young was so great to work with. She was very honest when she felt a property was not up to par or not what we should purchase. She was so helpful with zoning questions and the intricacies of the entire process. I can’t imagine navigating it without her. She was very patient with endlessly showing us properties until we found the right one. I can’t recommend her highly enough!” ~ Leigh Padgett, Hendersonville

“Susan Young did a great job as our agent. As out of town clients she did a good job in long distance communication. She had a good understanding of what we wanted in a house, and just as importantly, what we didn’t. Susan would visit interesting houses in advance to help us determine if we should make a trip to Asheville. Because we were interested in an older home in one of the historic neighborhoods, Susan’s knowledge of construction and remodeling was extremely helpful. She helped walk us through all of the positives and negatives of each house that we visited (and we looked at a lot!) Once we made an offer she helped us with each step all the way through closing. We would definitely use Susan again.”  Scott & Lynn Borgan, Grove Park area of Asheville

Susan,You’ve been a great realtor & now a great friend! Thank you for selling my home so quickly!  – Karen Becker, 5 Ebernickel, Weaverville, NC

“I am a fellow Realtor and I feel compelled to write a review for Susan, because she was such a pleasure to work with on a recent closing! Having great working relationships with colleagues on the other side of the table is incredibly helpful. Susan’s communication was second to none. She always let me know how the buyer’s process was progressing. Susan was kind, professional, thorough, pro-active and willing to go the extra mile to make the transaction happen smoothly for everyone involved. She is highly knowledgeable and a great resource. I look forward to doing another transaction with her in the future!” – Aviva Pitt, July 2019

Dear Susan,How does “Thank You” sound? I keep trying to think of something witty to say but fail. Back in September, I made a very good decision in deciding that I wanted you for my agent. In every instance, Susan, I felt comfortably confident in your descriptions and suggestions – it all came down to your wisdom. I wish you well in this chosen career that is different every day. Sincerely, Kaye Bergwin, Gabriels Creek Road, Mars Hill

“I had not sold a house in over 20 years. I had my real estate license years ago, and I knew enough to know I NEVER wanted to try and sell it myself. A good agent is worth the price you pay and Susan is absolutely the best. I did a search of top agents in town, and her name came up along with others. While others started calling incessantly, Susan simply sent an extremely thorough, intelligent and well worded email listing what she does, without hype and inflated promises. I liked the honest approach. She came out, gave us some advice, and when we were ready to list she was there every step of the way. We had an offer in 5 days and was under contract in 7. Susan negotiated us through the offer and through many tense days to closing. At the same time we were also buying a new home in a different state, and I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I said “I wish Susan was our buyer’s agent as well!” Even though she wasn’t, she went above and beyond and answered our buyer questions and advised us on that end too. She was an absolute gem to work with, and we highly recommend letting her list and sell your home. You will not regret it. There is simply none better in WNC.”  -Tammy Ray, June 2019   Barton Road, Asheville

Dear Susan, I want to thank you again for selling my home and handling the details after I moved. You and Don have always been good friends and I knew you would take care of this sale for me when I decided to move back north. Good friends are hard to find and I am grateful to have such knowledgeable people working with me. Take care, Shane Riorden, Shope Road, Asheville, NC

Every real estate agent has some sales they remember more than others. Each one is special in its own way. These are a few memorable sales that I was involved in

A few years ago I was asked to market a 181 acre property with a log home and a lodge on Sugar Creek Road in Weaverville. I was honored to be asked to market such a beautiful place. This property sold me on the idea that each property needs its own website. The new owner was found exclusively through the website SugarCreekRoad.com that I set up and developed. The following year I sold the neighboring 133 acre estate to the same buyer. These single property websites are a must-have when marketing any residential home or large acreage tract. I make sure that all of my residential listings have their own website.
SOLD
Weaverville, NC

Who doesn’t love a home with a history? Many years ago a friend of mine introduced me to Mr. Anders, the son in law of Lillian Exum Clement Stafford. Lillian was the first woman in the south to be elected to the State Legislature. Mr Anders had resided in this North Asheville home since marrying Lillian’s only daughter, Nancy. Now in his 90’s, Mr Anders asked me to market this special home for him. It was built in 1914 by Lillian’s father and has been in the family until its sale in 2014. The house was in need of everything from a heating system to a new kitchen and bathrooms. Every ounce of the home needed attention and needed a special buyer to do it right. With my marketing and endless conversations with potential buyers, the right person was found to take on this project. The home has been lovingly restored and will now be enjoyed for generations to come.

I can’t really say there was anything special about this sale, except for the need for better photos. I was the third Realtor asked to market this Weaverville home. The first agent had it priced too high. The second agent had it priced right but his photos were lackluster. I spent several hours photographing both the interior and exterior of this home then countless more hours sorting through photos and adjusting as needed to get them just right. The photo above was well lit and better framed than what the previous agents had used. Instead of showing just lawn, I inset a photo of the beautiful view. This is the first photo that everyone sees, I wanted to make it pop. It certainly did. I had multiple showings and a contract on the home with in a few days.

I sold this 25 acre tract on Frank Rector Road many years ago. This one truly was memorable. It has level land at the top of the property and then travels steeply downhill to the French Broad River. There was a large loop you could hike to see all aspects of the property but it took at least an hour and you had to know the trail. I tried to accompany all showings so that I could give a guided tour. My golden retriever and I once hiked it four times in one afternoon! To help with showings I decided to mark the trails. I made multiple copies of the survey, drew the hiking trail on them and then had them laminated. I placed “You are Here” stars along the map and attached the surveys to trees along the path. I still tried to accompany every showing but at least it could now be shown without my assistance if we had a scheduling conflict. One Buyers Agent commented that it was like touring a State Park!
