About Me

I'm retired from a 25-year career at a Shell chemical and refinery company in Norco, Louisiana. My last position was as a maintenance specialist, where I led mean time between repair improvement, root cause analysis exercises, and risk assessment.

Experience

It’s a wonderful feeling when you find the right home or piece of property. I live to see my clients' faces light up with that smile that says, “This is it!”

Retirement was boring, and I wanted something else in my life. Real estate was something I always wanted to do since I got out of the Marine Corps in 1976. So, at 70 years old, I returned to the classroom and finished all the required schooling to be a real estate broker in the state of North Carolina. It was a long, difficult challenge, but I did it, and I’m loving it!

If you're buying or selling a home in the Lake Lure area of WNC, contact me today.

Testimonials

Don and Christa were the dream team to work with!! Their attention to detail, knowledge, and willingness to help is what pushed this deal through. Christa is incredibly kind and nurturing during the entire process. She even bushwacked through the forest to walk the property line with us. Don is very knowledgeable and helped us with our perc test for the undeveloped land.

We met with several agents before selecting Don Ferrell. Of all the agents, Don was the only agent that came fully prepared for our meeting. He had already been by our home to look over the outside prior to our appointment and had in-depth knowledge of the current market in Chimney Rock. His knowledge of the pricing for our area was spot on, the other agents suggested significantly lower listing prices. We sold our home quickly just at Don's suggested list price and could not be happier. Don was extremely charming and personable, but did not pressure us to sell or go with him as our agent. He even had good recommendations for other agents in the area, as well as, a vacation rental listing company. Any issue that came up, Don had a solution for us. From recommending people that could help clean out our basement or someone to remove a tree, Don is a full service agent. He did a fantastic job helping us through some onerous negotiations with the buyer's agent. We would highly recommend Don Ferrell as your real estate agent!

Don took time to be sure he understood exactly what we were looking for, and did a lot of advance work to be certain that the properties he showed us were a good fit. He's a true gentleman and it's a pleasure to work with him.

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.
