I have been happily married to my college sweetheart for over 30 years. We have four adult children who are wonderful blessings to us. My oldest daughter, Bekah, lived and worked for a nonprofit in Haiti for four years and is now back home with her husband, working at MANNA FoodBank while obtaining her Master of Social Work. My second daughter, Katie, is working at the Omni Grove Park Inn here in Asheville and is my independent, free-spirit child. My third son, Jake, is a senior at NC State University and will graduate with a double major in math and education. He plans on being a teacher, which he will be amazing at. My fourth son, Sam, is a junior at Chapel Hill University and is a pre-med student, planning on being a doctor like his father.
As a family, we enjoy the outdoors, hiking, biking, and even running races together at times. I am an avid trail runner and mountain biker who, now that I am older, enjoys placing in my age group now and again.
I was drawn to the real estate world because of my love of people and getting to know their stories, their dreams, and their struggles. I hope to meet you and help you in your real estate ventures, and would consider it a privilege.
I was a nurse for 30+ years and loved every aspect of it. A big part of me will always be a nurse at heart. Walking through life's joys and difficulties with my clients is something that comes naturally to me.
Branching into real estate allowed me to use my gifts in a different capacity. I strive to make the search for or the marketing of a home as stress free and seamless as possible. By excelling in market knowledge, keeping my client informed, and being a source of calm in the storm, my goal is to be an excellent agent for my clients who will hopefully consider me not only their selling or buying agent, but their friend, as well.

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.
