About Me

I was born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida, by a concert organist mother and attorney father. My sport was competitive classical piano throughout high school at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. That is, until I arrived at Duke University and joined my fellow college journalists, studied in Spain my junior year and eventually graduated with a B.A. in English and Spanish.

After ten years in New York, I was set up on a blind date with a Tar Heel named Thomas Roth who lived in Atlanta. We have been married since 2001 and have a daughter named Caroline and a wire-haired fox terrier named Tracy. Although we are a house divided, we have learned to appreciate the ACC rivalry in our home state.

I have volunteered many hours at school, chaired the Carolina Day School Auction, and currently serve on the Board of Directors at Hanger Hall School for Girls. And when I’m not writing my “10 Things You Need to Know” newsletter, you can usually find me on the golf course or the tennis court.

Experience

As your professional real estate broker, I promise to always listen to what you’re searching for and work tirelessly to uncover your brilliant jewel of a home in Western North Carolina.

I moved to Asheville in 2012 and knew very few people to help me navigate our transition. I was a bit overwhelmed with a five-year-old daughter starting a new school and a husband who traveled for work. So, I turned on my journalism skills to uncover the best this city had to offer, from the perfect spot for a rainy-day play date to a babysitter-worthy date night restaurant and weekend itineraries for the inevitable visitors from the city. I fell in love with our new home and vowed that I would offer my ceaseless thirst for knowledge to others looking to relocate here, as well. In fact, many now refer to me as the “Asheville Ambassador”.

My career has taken me from the New York media—Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Details—to Atlanta’s Tony-winning Alliance Theatre. I launched two luxury magazines (Atlanta Peach, PaperCity Atlanta) as editor-in-chief before pivoting to freelance writing for various national publications (Veranda, Modern Luxury) once I arrived in Asheville. I joined the team behind famed Italian jewelry designer Roberto Coin as Brand Ambassador, creating events and directing social media to promote his Grove Arcade boutique.

I love connecting people with each other, as well as with beautiful things. I'm always looking for the exceptional gem, so it’s no surprise I chose real estate as my latest adventure. Let me help you buy or sell your next home.

It was important to me that I had a broker I could trust to represent my best interests throughout the process, rather than looking to 'close the deal'. This was especially important for me because I was moving from out of state and new to Asheville. In the first meeting with Elizabeth she provided detail about the local housing market, trends and characteristics of each area to understand what I was looking for and where I would find the best fit. She took note of my opinion and applied that throughout our search so I always knew we were in good hands. Elizabeth was fantastic helping us complete due diligence on the house. She facilitated introductions, scheduled and monitored appointments with several people including inspectors and specialists to survey the home and provide insights into soundness of the house. This was crucial for us as the property is 100 years old, and we were purchasing the house while living in NYC! I was in safe hands with Elizabeth overseeing the review as she challenged and pushed all of the inspectors to look at every detail of the house and document everything. End to end the process was seamless and effortless for me - she maintained all of the schedules, documentation, open questions/concerns and upcoming actions on my behalf so I had a single point of contact for anything I needed. I highly recommend Elizabeth as an agent for anyone looking at properties in Asheville. She was very professional, organized and went out of her way to make sure I felt comfortable and had all the information I needed throughout the process. Elizabeth always took the extra step to double check with a second source, or peer who had been in a similar situation when there were areas I was especially concerned about and she represented my concerns and opinions as though they were her own when representing me. My trust in Elizabeth was well placed as she was able to represent me while I was living in New York in all of the inspections, negotiations and simply checking in on the house at different points in the process to take a photo or check what happened after a rainstorm. I felt she did all of the things I would have done if there and more and thanks to her guidance and support I ended up with the perfect house!

Elizabeth is a committed professional who saw every step of this process through from start to finish. She listened, understood exactly what would work for us, and never let her guard down to get this transaction closed in 30 days. I slept well knowing she had our back and wouldn't let the "little things" slip, I will use her again and recommend her to my friends.

Elizabeth Roth did an outstanding job when we purchased a townhome in Asheville. She helped us identify neighborhoods, specific units, and the attributes of what we were looking for. We've built two homes in Florida, our primary residence. The first we've since sold, the second we've lived in for 20 years. The Asheville home is a vacation home that we plan to use periodically. So this was the first purchase of a home that my wife and I (married 31 years) ever did. Elizabeth was patient, easy-going and dealt well with a few of the issues we had during the process, minor issues, but she did well getting us through the process. We highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in the Carolina moutnains!

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.
