About Me

I grew up in a textile community near Charleston, South Carolina where I learned to value the finer qualities of those around me. I've always had a strong desire to move to the mountains and made Asheville my home in 2012. I value the many various lifestyle opportunities offered in Asheville and the surrounding communities of Western North Carolina.

Experience

I strive to always put your needs first.

After a successful career in Atlanta in the contracting and building industry, I pursued a lifelong passion for master gardening in Charleston, SC. During that career, I designed a number of recognizable landscaping projects. One of my proudest accomplishments was landscaping multiple homes in the historic Riverland Terrace community of James Island.

Now, as a full-time REALTORⓇ in Asheville, NC, I bring that same creativity, focus, and work ethic to my real estate clients.

I am here to assist you by grasping the vision that is important to you and your real estate needs. Whether buying or selling a home, I will help you understand your options, define your scope, and negotiate the labyrinth of a real estate transaction. Carpe Diem!

Testimonials

Clayton Ryan did an amazing job of helping us acquire and purchase the land we wanted to buy. He informed us of all the things we have to do before buying the land. Any questions we had, we would reach out to him and he would answer our questions or direct us to who would answer our questions. It was our first time getting involved in buying a property, so we were grateful that we got a real estate agent that knew what he was doing, helped us with everything, and was an overall amicable and understanding person.

Clayton was always able to answer questions, willing to take the time to explain steps in the process of buying a house to a first time buyer. He quickly arranged all the inspections and I was never left waiting for him to make any arrangement. When I needed access to the house after hours or on the weekend, he was always cheerfully available. He genuinely tried to match me to a house that met my desires, and within my means rather than showing me houses at a higher price than I could afford. I would recommend him to a friend.

Clayton was so personable and thorough with our new home purchase. I am a first time buyer and was very leary at what to expect from the proceedings. Once Clayton and I met, he made me feel at ease and he instilled a feeling of trust and comfort that was greatly appreciated. Furthermore, his personal touch in all the proceedings made my home purchase much easier. He is a great person and now, a new friend!

Clayton went out of his way to make the entire process seamless. Clayton was a breath of fresh air as I live 6 hours away and he lived up to his fiduciary duties 110%. Don't hesitate for a second entrusting Clayton with your real estate needs. He was with us every step of the way. He even accompanied us to the closing.

Clayton listened carefully to my concerns. We discussed any issues and he was helpful, thoughtful, and even sometimes consulted with his broker. He also is the only real estate agent I've ever had who actually "worked" for me. He stands in a class of his own and I am a real estate investor so have done a lot of dabbling in the pond. I would highly recommend him. He's good and he cares. judy flaherty ps I felt he cared about me and my concerns not just the bottom line agent fee.

Clayton is great to work with. Clayton is extremely knowledgeable with real estate. I was impressed every step of the way working with him. I would most definitely recommend Clayton to anyone looking to buy or sell. If for any reason I will need an agent again, Clayton will be getting a call for sure. Extremely polite and approachable.

We were so fortunate to have found Clayton when we decided to put our home up for sale. As our Realtor, he helped us sale our first home and also find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He worked with us many months and was so helpful during both processes. In short, he was always on our side working to make selling our home and house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Clayton was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. He was so kind to our family and put our concerns first. He made the whole process so easy, we couldn’t have been more pleased! We would recommend him to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

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.
