I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, as well as some time in Coral Springs, Florida. Days after the 9/11 tragedy, I was compelled to enlist in the US Army. I served four years with the 25th Infantry Division, which included one tour of duty in Iraq. Shortly thereafter, my wife, Lenore, and I discovered the wonderful region of Western North Carolina. What a gem! We have lived in the Asheville and Hendersonville areas since 2005. We’ve discovered a fondness for rescuing animals in need, and have rescued, fostered, and adopted many fur babies over the years.
I strive to always be my true self, which is a balance of hard work, respect, and a touch of silliness. When I am able to carve out spare time for myself, I enjoy golfing with friends, getting lost on mountain drives, and exploring new culinary techniques. My latest hobby is learning the art of Bonsai.
Contributing value and knowledge to your real estate journey as you find and purchase your perfect home is what truly moves me. I am known for simplifying the complex world of real estate into an enjoyable and worthwhile venture.
After spending 10 years helping small business owners in Western North Carolina, I then turned my efforts towards real estate. And while real estate is my profession, helping people is my passion. That, and having an eye for architectural design and home construction.
I’m excited to join the team of Julie Mallett & Steve DeWitt. Their constant drive to assist their clients—at all costs—aligns with my own work ethics. I’m committed to the continued pursuit of real estate education, and look forward to developing lasting relationships along the way.

How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?
Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Welcome magazine.
