About Me

Focused, responsive, proactive. Strong listener and communicator with proven reputation for follow through in all matters. First and foremost - Customer Driven and dedicated. Recognized and sought after for professionalism and interpersonal skills in all matters relative to successful transactions, conducted in a comfortable, positive, equitable negotiation approach.

Strong satisfied referral base for retirement, luxury, second home and first time buyer clients alike. "My reputation has been built on highly satisfied clients who seek honest ongoing communication in all matters relative to real estate. I look forward to working with you here in Western North Carolina." I have been on the Top 100 List of Leading Realtors in our region several times, and am consistently a top producing agent. I understand the needs of relocating to this area, where I chose to make my home in 2005, after living in Marin County, California, Coral Gables, Florida, Boulder, Colorado, Greenwich Connecticut, Los Angeles, CA and New York City. (I understand transitions!).

My personal interests are based on active, creative pursuits, and like many who live here, I enjoy hiking and touring the many wonderful trails here in WNC. I'm also active in community theater, health & wellness (I teach water aerobics and have been a Massage Therapist for more than 20 years) and dining out at the may wonderful area restaurants. Gardening, dance and community volunteering (Buncombe Council on Literacy ESL Tutor) round out my life.

I love helping new residents discover the many opportunities here to plant the seeds of a new life. Just ask me! Evelyn

Testimonials

House hunting remotely was nerve recking and timing was very crucial. Evelyn was my eyes and ears during my house hunting in WNC. Her communication was always timely through phone, text and email. It was my first home purchase on my own and she made everything easy for me. When she was out of town, her associate Brent filled in and everything went smoothly. She was very professional and to the point but very friendly and personable at the same time. When I actually met her in person a week before closing, I felt like seeing my old friend. I strongly recommend Evelyn Zebro to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in WNC.

Evelyn did an excellent job representing us in this transaction. She went above and beyond her responsibilities to help us get the home we wanted. From performing tasks while on vacation to meeting with people at the home when we couldn't, she did everything she could to help the process along.

Evelyn was absolutely wonderful to work with when I purchased my home two (2) years ago. When I decided to sell my home, I knew I wanted her to be my agent again. She quickly earned my trust and I have the utmost confidence in her ability to handle difficult negotiations. Evelyn is a great communicator and an overall pleasure to work with.

Evelyn was very pleasant and easy to work with. She was very adept and knowledgeable in almost all aspects of real estate selling and gave us excellent advice to make the sale run smoothly and provided other resources to aid with making the property more attractive to the buyers. We have dealt with other realtors in the past, and Evelyn has been the best one. She was quick with communication, and it did not take very long for an offer to be made, and a 2nd, even 3rd offer, came immediately when the first one did not pan out. We are very happy and satisfied with how Evelyn conducted the entire selling process/transaction. We will definitely be using Evelyn again for any of our future real estate needs and will be recommending her to colleagues, friends, and family members.

Evelyn was the broker on the sale of my late wife's home. She helped us quickly stage and get the property in excellent shape for showing, helped us price it right and quickly got us a buyer. All of this was excellent. But the important part was that because it was an estate sale it unexpectedly became caught up in probate related issues (that had nothing at all to do with Evelyn), but that complicated and lengthened the sales process. I believe that Evelyn was critical in calming the buyers who could at several points walked away from the sale. She was always a voice of calm and reason which at times was sorely needed. Beyond this Evelyn was very helpful in the getting the minor repairs and dealing with the builder that would have been hard for me to do from out of town. To me Evelyn was the star of this whole transaction. I highly recommend her.

Evelyn Zebro is a consummate professional, a wonderful broker, and a pleasure to know. From our first meeting to the closing, she was willing to go the extra mile for me. My purchase decision took longer than many, but Evelyn stood by me every step of the way. She provided expert guidance and helpful suggestions throughout our search, but respected that I was the decision-maker. After showing me scores of properties, she helped me assess the most likely candidates. Then she helped me make a winning offer that was well below the asking price. Ms. Zebro assisted me through every part of the due diligence process, and she helped me deal effectively with the many questions, issues, and legal matters that arose prior to closing. Evelyn is professional, respectful, knowledgeable, energetic, and kind. I recommend her without reservation to any buyer or seller. I cannot imagine working with anyone more attentive to a client's needs.

Evelyn Zebro is a charming and personable woman who inspired complete confidence in me. She showed me only properties within my budget limits and was very sensitive to where I wanted to be located. She found many places to show me in a short time and was thoughtful and fairminded in helping me evaluate the advantages and disadvantages to each situation. Within a 3 week period, I was convinced and happy to be purchasing a townhome in Weaverville. In spite of the fact that I did not come to Asheville to buy resl estate, I am delighted with my decision and Evelyn's skillful guidance in finding me the right property at the right price. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing real estate in this area.

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.
