We chose Ann because of her track record of success and her knowledge of the history of Biltmore Forest and Asheville, NC. She is professional, knowledgeable, a problem solver and made us feel welcome to Biltmore Forest. Ann gets back to you immediately if you leave a voicemail or email even if she is out of town. Not only did we experience excellent service with Ann, we heard from others that we made the right choice by choosing Ann. We are very blessed that we had her as our agent for our new home in Biltmore Forest.

Ann was wonderful to work with. She is patient, not pushy, a good listener, of utmost integrity, and highly responsive. She is well versed in the financial details, and has excellent connections to match us with an inspector and lawyer as well. Our first visit to Asheville was just exploratory. Our 2nd, we bought a house. Thanks to Ann's deep knowledge of the Asheville area she helped us hone in on an area (The Ramble) and then close on a house quickly and fairly. Even after knee surgery, Ann was still responsive. She is very dedicated to her craft and to client satisfaction. She helped us all the way through the inspection and visited socially to check in on me when we got the house. I hope to remain in touch with her thanks to her relationship skills. Ann is a consummate professional and a warm, friendly terrific person as well. Thumbs up across the board in referring her as a broker.

During most of the sales period we were at our home in Florida. Ann took care of most anything asked or implied during this period. As we were absentee owners she even handled house inspection, house sitting and letting subcontractors in as required. We had complete trust in everything Ann handled for us.

I noticed a sign in my neighborhood with Ann Skoglund's name. I looked her up and read her profile and was very impressed. When I met her she was well informed, knowledgeble, approachable, and very pleasant. I had a positive experience working with her and would definitely call on her again if the need arose. She always answered my questions no matter how silly I thought they were. She responded at any time of the day or night I contacted her. She kept me up to date on proceedures and policies and always told me what to expect next. She knows her business and it was a pleasure meeting and working with her.

Karen McGregor Biltmore Forest

Ann has been our Real Estate Agent since 1993. She has been there for us at every critical moment in our lives while living in Asheville. She found our first house, she found our dream property to build our dream house on. She sold our house in retirement and now sold my mother home in Asheville so that our family could be together in South Florida. There are no “reviews” to describe the nature of the relationship she has with our family. To say we respect her and trust her implicitly is an understatement. She was born to do her job. She has a memory that allows her to market properties with not only structural details, but knowing the history of who lived there, what the families were like, when kids graduated, when renovations were done and why they had to be done. Properties to her have a heart and this is why she is able to find perfect matches. She is truly amazing. We love her dearly, and hope that she continues her career for many years to come.

Fortunately we were prepared for the long haul when we put the house on the market. You hung in there through it all and always kept a positive attitude as the months went by. Ann, your "third times a charm" even had me Google the saying to find its derivation. I have never been more satisfied than when we were able to receive that earnest money from Heather when she backed out.( Do let us know what she finally buys- if ever). Glad that Sandi and her husband were able to come up with their fair value for our house. We walk away satisfied that the house will make it to 100 years - possibly with the new owners- and in a lot better shape than when we bought it. No regrets. Thanks so much, Bruce& Gail And how nice, Champagne without a hangover !

There was no question about a broker. Her husband sold me the property 10 years ago and at that time I met Ann and we have been friends since then. Her knowledge and successful results were known by me and she was the only and obvious choice when it came to selling my house. Having been in real estate sales in Manhattan myself, I had the experience of knowing a quality broker when I saw one. The property was sold in 3 days! Ann Skoglund is a super lady and a great agent.

Ann Skoglund is the ultimate professional. She listens carefully to her client's needs and her vast experience and intuition enable her to provide advice, guidance or even challenge a client's thinking appropriately, throughout the buying process. Her knowledge of the area was also extremely helpful in ensuring priorities and personal preferences could be met from the various locations we toured. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ann to others.

Ann told us when we first talked about listing our house that the houses in our neighborhood (Biltmore Forest) weren't selling the way they had in the past, due to the Ramble. Also, she told us that we had a big house and that they weren't so much in demand as they had been in the past. In other words, she let us know from the beginning that it probably wasn't going to be easy. She was right! But in time, she found the right people. She helped us with getting our new home. We had thought about buying outright from a seller, not using realtors. She even helped us with that. She didn't try to push us towards the house she listed, which we greatly appreciated. In the end, we did end up buying the one that she listed! She is totally professional. We would recommend her to anyone!

All together the experience was a good one. It was stressful to us because there were new parts to selling in 2015 that we had not experienced before. But Ann helped us work through all of these. Her expertise and her personal support were outstanding. Since we are moving to Deerfield we will likely not have another opportunity to work with Ann, but we would certainly give an excellent recommendation to anyone who asked us about working with her. Both times her help was invaluable. Our selling situation was unusual in that we could not make the house available for occupancy for 6 months. Ann suggested a good plan and it worked. The buyers made a first look in mid November and bought the house Dec. 30. Their offer while not as high as we had hoped had so many other good parts that it made up for the sale price. In the process of the sale there were many new things from the last time we bought and sold in 2004 (photos, nit-picking inspection, need for rapid repairs to meet the sale date,) and Ann helped us with all of these. Ann went over the top because a lot of the final efforts had to come when she was having knee surgery and rehab. But we never felt she was out of touch and she did indeed work for us during that time. The buyers' agent was not as helpful. She was available and friendly but she did not bring the wealth of experience that Ann has had in this area of Asheville or the contacts that Ann has developed over the years. She was supportive and available - critical things to bring this sale to a conclusion. This house was sold before it was ever listed in the MLS. It was Ann's posting at your offices and her email blast to a few of the agents in town selling this type of property that brought in the buyer. There was never any formal promotion.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
