How has remote work and mobility impacted our real estate markets in WNC?

According to the Counselors of Real Estate, the pandemic universally caused a movement away from urban cores. This trend is particularly true for those with higher incomes who could afford to move. This newfound geographic flexibility is one reason why Western North Carolina’s luxury housing market is up 267%. Most people moving from urban areas remained within their original region (84%). The overwhelming majority of home buyers continue to be local to North Carolina or the states immediately adjacent. With the added mobility remote work offers, people are moving to areas with a proven high quality of life or to more affordable regions where they can buy more home for their money.

Emily could not have been more helpful or easier to work with. She was available at all times and kept in communication regularly. She offered to help in any way she could. She insisted that we call her at any hour if we needed help and had concerns about anything. It was obvious that she had our best interests at heart. IF any potential buyers would like a recommendation, we would be happy to give an excellent one for Emily. She was friendly and gave us the confidence that we were in good hands in listing our home with her.

Emily Bentley was hands-down the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail, prompt communication, kindness, and knowledge were unparalleled. Emily was always available to answer questions, though she anticipated my needs so well that I rarely had to ask for anything. As soon as I showed interest in a home, Emily had every piece of information anyone could possibly want to know about the property, including technical structural information and details regarding past contracts. Her research and persistence saved me a lot of money throughout the home buying process. She was a fierce negotiator who was willing to think outside the box in order to best meet my needs. This was my third real estate transaction, and the only one where I experienced no stress whatsoever. I knew that whatever came up, Emily had it under control. It was an absolute honor to work with Emily, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I was living in Florida and contacted Emily Bentley about a house in Waynesville, NC. My association with Emily started that day. Though I did not purchase that house, I told her I would be retiring in two years, and that I wanted to relocate to NC. Emily kept me updated on property in my price range for two years. Then I called her to say I was coming to NC in March 2019 for a week to look at a house. We met at the property only to learn it was under contract.I told Emily that was ok another house had my name on it. A street up from that property was a new house being built, about ten minutes later Emily called me and told me to come back to that neighborhood. She introduced me to the builder and he showed us the house. A week later we put a contract on that house. I feel if it had not been for Emily's extra effort I would not be a happy home owner now. Emily is a relationship builder and it shows in her work. Thanks again Emily for bringing me home!

Emily Bently did a wonderful job helping me get to know the area and focusing me on my hunt for the perfect place. She was incredibly patient helping me through the buy vs. build scenario. She even re-arranged her schedule when I added another day of househunting with less than 24 hours. She was very organized on having days planned in the most efficient way possible and did a good job giving me the flavor of the different areas.

Emily was highly recommended, by a friend, who said she had sold houses for two or three of his friends. Emily was always there for me, answered lots of questions, kept in close touch, both texting and on the phone, just about any day of the week, and often after working hours, when it was necessary. As I am almost 80yrs. old, she also kept in very close touch with my son, and daughter-in-law, who is a lawyer, which was a lot of extra work for Emily, but she did it gladly. In fact, she is still looking into something for me, with the buyer's lawyer, regarding NC Taxes. She is exceptional. I will definitely recommend Emily, with no hesitation, to anyone planning a home sale.
