About Me

It’s a beautiful life here in the Western North Carolina mountains, and there is no place that I would rather call home.

My husband and I live on the original Fisher Family Farm that has been in the family for more than 100 years. Donny and I were high school sweethearts and married shortly after graduation. We have three beautiful children and 11 grandchildren also living in Lake Toxaway. It is my greatest joy to spend time with the family, gathering on the farm and watching them live their best lives.

I love outdoor living; gardening is a true passion; the flower garden is one of my favorites. I was fortunate to help my daughter in her floral design studio, which specializes in weddings. I also love vintage finds and the creativity of a makeover; Pinterest is a wonderful inspiration for all projects. Church activities and being involved with the community have always been very important to our family. Donny has played bluegrass music for more than 30 years, and it is a joyous adventure, taking us to many beautiful places all over the mountains with its rich heritage and mountain culture that is so deeply rooted within our family.

Experience

If you are looking to sell or buy here in the WNC mountains, I would love the opportunity to discuss your real estate goals and would consider it a privilege to work with you to accomplish them.

I am a native of Transylvania County and a lifetime resident of Lake Toxaway. After surviving cancer in 2003, I decided it was time to pursue my dream job of becoming a RealtorⓇ. I started my real estate career in 2004, obtaining my broker's license from the Cumbie & Trull School of Real Estate. I love this career and helping people realize their real estate dreams!

My heritage brings knowledge and a deep understanding of Transylvania County and the surrounding areas. As a lifetime resident, I know the area well, and it has proven to be an asset when finding my clients the perfect place to call home. Through the years, I have had the privilege of assisting many of the residents, along with family and friends, with selling their homes or land, enabling them to move on to the next phase of their lives.

Together, my husband and I founded a business selling landscaping and erosion control products with great success, which was a great learning experience in sales and public relations.

Before becoming a full-time real estate agent, I worked in the banking industry for five years at Brevard Federal Savings & Loan, a local branch that was in Lake Toxaway. I also worked in accounting at the Lake Toxaway Company for many years.

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.
