About Me

Welcome! Asheville has always been my home, and I look forward to helping you discover the many wonderful aspects of this small, cosmopolitan city. My specialty is residential neighborhoods, including Grove Park, Lakeview Park, Sunset Mountain, Biltmore Forest, The Ramble, Biltmore Park and Biltmore Lake. Contact me today for a personalized relocation packet. And if you are moving here from out of town, you'll enjoy my in-depth tour of the Asheville area, including the history, neighborhoods, schools, shopping, restaurants, etc. I'll even work closely with your Realtor back home, or help you choose one, for a smooth transition. I know the Asheville real estate market and the importance of location and timing. I listen carefully to my clients - the key to finding a home that is just right. I offer step-by-step guidance from contract to closing, including financing, the home inspection, the survey, transfer of utilities, etc. Every aspect of the transaction is handled by me personally - never delegated to an assistant. Let me provide the attention to detail and follow-up necessary to make your move a great experience!

Barbara Baskerville was recommended by our son and others for the hard work she did on their behalf to find the perfect property in Asheville. We totally agree! Barbara took the time to find out exactly what we hoped to find in a new home. She then set out to find it for us in a very tight market. She was supportive and always accessible to answer our questions. She notified us of all properties that came available and arranged viewings. When we settled on a home, she walked us through all of the requirements and made sure to keep us informed all along the way. We felt that Barbara was like a friend walking us through this very challenging process. We couldn't recommend her higher!

My wife and I highly recommend that anyone looking for a property investment or the home they want to fondly, and without reservation, call 'home' in Asheville, NC, they should begin first by sitting down and meeting Barbara Baskerville. Before showing us one property, she ... - sat down to get to know us and our family, - got a feel for what we may be searching for, - introduced the various communities of Asheville, ... then, after going through at least twenty properties, selected 6-7 which she felt would fit what we were looking for and be 'good fits' for us, by... - getting our feedback for what we liked or didn't like, - working endlessly until we either found what we were looking for or decide that for the time being, this was not the time or place, for making our home in Asheville, - giving suggestions for other possibilities that would better 'fit' us and what we were looking for (possibly in other cities we were thinking about), and -wishing us well in whatever direction we ended up going. Barbara Baskerville has helped us buy or sell our properties in Asheville. For current and future real estate considerations here, we would first go to her and refer our friends to her.

Colonel T.C. Skanchy -- Salt Lake City, UT

Barbara was highly recommended by a close friend of mine who had dealt with her and knew of others who also had very positive experiences with her. Because I live so far away (Hawaii), it was critically important that my realtor be reliable and trustworthy since I couldn't be there to repair the massive damage left by my last tenants. Barbara put in an incredible amount of time making the house presentable and kept me up to date on all aspects of the repairs, upgrades, and, eventually, sales issues. Had it not be for Barbara Baskerville, I truly believe I would have had no choice but to sell the house "as is" for an extremely low price. Over the years, I have bought, sold, and rented out several houses. I have never had anywhere near the positive experience that I enjoyed with Barbara Baskerville. She did not overlook the smallest detail and directly monitored all aspects of repairing the damages and preparing the house to look its best. She made no decisions without getting my approval and kept me up to date on all progress. Barbara was always pleasant, and because of her knowledge and sense of responsibility, I was able to sell my house from 6000 miles away without wondering if I was in good hands. I could not have asked for a better realtor. Barbara Baskerville's efforts went far above and beyond what I've experienced in the past, and anyone who chooses her to be their realtor has made a wise decision.

Barbara Baskerville has been competent, attentive, informative, and flexible from the very start of my search and consistent in all these qualities to the closing and beyond. I am relocating from Savannah Ga and her experience, knowledge and willingness to share information with me have made this a great experience for me. I find Barbara to be a fine representative for the city of Asheville and of course for your company. Barbara went above and beyond the call in all aspects of selection, negotiations, and closing. Very knowledgable. Ahhhhh, if only all the people I had business dealings with were as timely and clear in there communications as Barbara is my life would be easier.

I'd been searching for a home for three monts and was on my second realtor... the first often wasn't available and I missed houses--they went under contract before I could get in to see them. The second wasn't available either, but had someone else open houses for me to see. Which seemed to work okay at first, but I realized she didn't have any idea what I was looking for as she wasn't at the showings. Friends recommended Barbara and I called and talked with her. She seemed very knowledgeable and I liked the questions she asked about what kind of home I hoped to buy. I talked with my realtor at the time and terminated our agreement. I then contacted Barbara again to hire her-- and she found a house for me in less than a week.

Barbara Baskerville is an excellent real estate agent, she not only has outstanding local area knowledge and excellent business skills that she puts to work for you but she also insured that our closing paperwork was properly done and followed up to protect all our interests. I have recommended her to friends and family in the past and would not hesitate to continue to do so. In short Barbara is an outstanding agent who's primary objective is taking care of her clients and making sure their real estate transaction is an excellent experience.

Barbara is a fabulous real estate agent and a wonderful person. Her extensive knowledge of the area made for a pleasurable real estate search and she understood clearly what we wanted in a home--maybe even better than we did! She never showed us a single property that didn't make sense for us to look at. When it came to negotiating a contract and working through the closing, she was a strong advocate and truly "stepped up to bat" when we needed her help. We will strongly recommend Barbara to anyone we know who wishes to buy or sell real estate in WNC.

Greg and Judy Plumb

Ms Baskerville was attentive and helpful in articulating my home-buying needs and when I was ready to start looking had prepared a short list which met my criteria most satisfactorily. In fact, the home I eventually bought was the second item on that list; the alternative was the third item. She really heard me try to say what I was looking for. Despite my being at a distance during most of the time until I arrived in Asheville to look at possibilities, I never felt disconnected. Once I decided on that home she was exceedingly thorough in walking me through the procedures and most prompt in accomplishing each step of the process. I cannot imagine anyone more knowledgeable about real estate or the Asheville area. She responded almost immediately to my every question and concern in a full and satisfactory manner. Her attention even to minor details was notable. I have bought several homes over the years, but unquestionably this was the least-anxious, most agreeable purchase of all. I recommend her unreservedly.

Barbara's dedication to helping us meet our goals, and her experience really helped make this process smooth and effective. I also enjoyed getting to know her! We felt Barbara always went above and beyond her duties. It was refreshing to work with someone who genuinely cares.

Barbara Baskerville was an excellent choice for me. She showed me many houses; responded quickly to any of my requests; guided me through the "maze" of working with the seller, the bank, and the attorney. I will recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. She was timely, is knowledgeable, and very pleasant.

Barbara Baskerville has been competent, attentive, informative, and flexible from the very start of my search and consistent in all these qualities to the closing and beyond. I am relocating from Savannah Ga and her experience, knowledge and willingness to share information with me have made this a great experience for me. I find Barbara to be a fine representative for the city of Asheville and of course for your company. Barbara went above and beyond the call in all aspects of selection, negotiations, and closing. Very knowledgable. Ahhhhh, if only all the people I had business dealings with were as timely and clear in there communications as Barbara is my life would be easier.

I'd been searching for a home for three monts and was on my second realtor... the first often wasn't available and I missed houses--they went under contract before I could get in to see them. The second wasn't available either, but had someone else open houses for me to see. Which seemed to work okay at first, but I realized she didn't have any idea what I was looking for as she wasn't at the showings. Friends recommended Barbara and I called and talked with her. She seemed very knowledgeable and I liked the questions she asked about what kind of home I hoped to buy. I talked with my realtor at the time and terminated our agreement. I then contacted Barbara again to hire her-- and she found a house for me in less than a week.

Barbara Baskerville is by far the best real estate agent to work with. No matter the price range you are working with she treats you with respect and will work her hardest to make you happy. Barbara is the most dedicated agent you will find and you will not regret working with her. We have worked with Barbara four times now and we look forward to working with her again in the future.

Barbara Baskerville is an excellent real estate agent, she not only has outstanding local area knowledge and excellent business skills that she puts to work for you but she also insured that our closing paperwork was properly done and followed up to protect all our interests. I have recommended her to friends and family in the past and would not hesitate to continue to do so. In short Barbara is an outstanding agent who's primary objective is taking care of her clients and making sure their real estate transaction is an excellent experience.

Barbara is a fabulous real estate agent and a wonderful person. Her extensive knowledge of the area made for a pleasurable real estate search and she understood clearly what we wanted in a home--maybe even better than we did! She never showed us a single property that didn't make sense for us to look at. When it came to negotiating a contract and working through the closing, she was a strong advocate and truly "stepped up to bat" when we needed her help. We will strongly recommend Barbara to anyone we know who wishes to buy or sell real estate in WNC.

Ms Baskerville was attentive and helpful in articulating my home-buying needs and when I was ready to start looking had prepared a short list which met my criteria most satisfactorily. In fact, the home I eventually bought was the second item on that list; the alternative was the third item. She really heard me try to say what I was looking for. Despite my being at a distance during most of the time until I arrived in Asheville to look at possibilities, I never felt disconnected. Once I decided on that home she was exceedingly thorough in walking me through the procedures and most prompt in accomplishing each step of the process. I cannot imagine anyone more knowledgeable about real estate or the Asheville area. She responded almost immediately to my every question and concern in a full and satisfactory manner. Her attention even to minor details was notable. I have bought several homes over the years, but unquestionably this was the least-anxious, most agreeable purchase of all. I recommend her unreservedly.

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.
