About Me

Born and raised in the Palm Beaches, I grew up in the suburban West Palm Beach hamlet known as the Town of Golfview. I graduated from Twin Lakes High School (old P.B. High) and the University of Florida ( Go Gators). I am an SOB - which in real estate parlance means: son of a Broker. Both my mother and grandfather were in the real estate world/industry. I have been in real estate since 1985 - first licensed in Florida, then Georgia and North Carolina.

I have been coming to the western NC mountains since I was "knee-high to a grasshopper". My grandparents instilled in me the love of the mountains since they had a summer cabin outside of Highlands on the Franklin Road (US64) and I kept coming back every year. Needless to say, that sleepy little area has changed just a bit. Helen's Barn and the putt putt are long gone! My wife and I met in Lake Toxaway and were married there in 1987.

So, like the John Muir quote: "The Mountains are calling and I must go!" - Why? Because we love it here!

After 20 years out in the Lake Chatuge area (Hayesville, NC - Hiawassee, GA). we relocated to Hendersonville and Blacksmith Run in 2020. And we love it here!

I truly believe that this business is a profession and I strive to create relationships that last a lifetime. Just last year, I had the pleasure of serving the 3rd Generation (grand-daughter) of a Florida Client. I really never thought about it until we were leaving the closing...How blessed am I to have that kind of trust from one family! Anyone can send out a list of available homes, open doors and give buyers a tour of homes and "attempt" to sell real estate. However, It's the time spent researching, knowledge shared and expertise given, along with superior service, that define a real professional.

Please let me, How can I HELP YOU?

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.
