About Me

I am sixth generation resident of Western North; my family arrived here from Ireland in the late 1700's. Having lived in Asheville all of my life, I am a great source of knowledge about the area including real estate and things to do during your visit. My passion in real estate is borne from watching the joy and excitement of first-time homebuyers. I am compassionate to all of my clients – buyers and sellers, providing top-notch professional assistance while actually listening to their wants, needs and desires. Having over 30 years of real estate experience, I have a proven track record that promises results, satisfaction and comfort with the purchase or sale of your home.

I dedicate most of my free time to non-profit volunteer positions. In 1985, I was a founder and charter member of Buncombe county Friends of Animals, now known as Buncombe county animal shelter. At that same time, I began working with several animal networks including the Anna Maria Goodman Foundation – I continue to volunteer for animal charities. I lost my Mother to cancer so the nearest and dearest organization to which I belong is Hope Chest. We assist by providing services often times not covered by insurance and/or other agencies. In our 13 counties, we have been able to assist hundreds of cancer patients.

If I had to choose my top three hobbies, I would include the following: gardening, which allows me to cultivate my plantings and watch them grow – very similar to my work with clients; I enjoy the amazing sense of exhilarated freedom when I am horse-back riding. Any time I am near an ocean, you will find me scuba diving and enjoying the different underwater species while peeking from under a coral reef in search of a shark.

Debbie was a wonderful professional realtor and I would definitely use her again and again if I needed to buy or sell a property I am a former real estate agent with ReMax in Northern Virginia and I know the importance of finding the right agent. I felt that Debbie fit that perfectly. She was very attentive ,she knew the area, she knew how to make a marketing presentation, she knew how to get the word out to the public ,and the house sold much faster than I was really expecting it to. Once it was sold she followed up on everything that needed to be done and when I was ready to negotiate the price a little bit rather than Make all of the repairs from the home inspection Debbie was quick to say that she could handle it and it would save me money. I would highly recommend her to anyone that was thinking of buying or selling in this area.

Deb Mitchell was my agent when previously purchasing a home in Asheville 20+ years ago. I flew in from out of state and she went above and beyond to help me find just the right property. I was very impressed with her diligence, extensive knowledge of the area, and willingness to make sure I saw every property in my price range and preferences. She was not focused on herself and "just a sale", but on my satisfaction as a client. I have kept in touch with her over the years and would not have even considered any other agent when it was time to downsize. She was an enormous help to me!! I was more than satisfied with the results!

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.
