The Gamble Team
About Brent and Lisa:
We met nearly 15 years ago through a shared love of college football, have been married for 13 years, and have called Western North Carolina home since 2012. We dreamed of living in the Asheville area since our wedding here in 2009. Since then, we have thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of living in and raising our kids in this beautiful region, making treasured friends here, doing fulfilling work, and taking in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Asheville. We absolutely adore hosting our family and friends who are always wanting to visit us here!
About Scott Coggins
I’m an avid sports fan (baseball was my first true love) and a history nerd, and I look for excuses to go on an adventure. When I’m not working, I’m likely outside in the garden or researching something new and trying to put it into practice. I’ve made mead and fruit wine, built a hydroponic system, harvested sea salt from the North Carolina coast, and started and sold a couple of businesses—whatever has managed to pique my interest at the time. No matter what else I’m up to, I love spending time with my wife and two young daughters more than anything else on Earth. They make life in Western North Carolina that much better.

Ask An Expert
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.

Brent and Lisa Gamble are the shining stars I didn't know I needed during the home buying process. As I started looking around in this new town I decided I was moving to, I quickly realized I lucked out and had a DREAM TEAM on my side! Their knowledge of the market, the process and all the random ins and outs to look for in a home were crucial to finding my dream home. ALso, Brent and Lisa stand out because they are amazing listeners and not only to what I said, but they could read between the lines and guided me in ways I didn't realize i needed. They were there at every twist and turn supporting me with knowledge and also emotional support. As a first time homebuyer there were ups and downs and I appreciated their ability to guide me so well to keep my chin up even while stress was creeping in. I am new to Asheville and I couldn't feel more fortunate to call the two of them my first friends in town. THANK YOU BRENT AND LISA!!!!
Katie McKay, Asheville
Scott was reccomended through a friend. He was so attentive, and went so far above our expectations. He was so patient with all of our quirks-coming from SC to look, looking for a fixer upper etc. We never would have been able to purchase our home, at the price we got it for, with out him.
Kristina Ladson, SC
I have used Brent and Lisa before, and like before I received old fashion customer service. They went above and beyond what was needed and made sure I did not worry about anything, and explained any questions I had. They were patient, polite, respectful and responsive to me whenever I called. I would use these guys every time and all the time. I am older now and I like dealing with old values in customer service. If these two cared only about making a sale then they did their job, but they made me feel that it wasn't just about making a sale and a profit, it was about making sure I was informed and what could they do to help me through the process. It was about making sure they met my needs and I stayed in control. Just don't see that anymore. It was personal and I felt safe dealing with them. This is a could Team. Thank you Brent and Lisa.
Kevin Iwans Weaverville nc
We were so fortunate to have Brent and Lisa as or agents. They were professional and excellent communicators through the whole process of selling our house. We were never in the dark regarding the process. Our needs were always considered. We give them or highest recommendation and will definitely use them again for our real estate transactions in their market as the need arises!
Dewey & CJ Merrill, Asheville
I've worked with Brent and Lisa Gamble for many years and they've helped with at least 3 transactions as well as family member transactions. They're the absolute best, and they're so approachable and kind hearted that we've actually become friends. They are absolute top-tier and I'll probably try to reach out to make sure they get licensed in neighboring states so I can continue to work with them forever.
Ryan, Asheville, NC
We recently closed on our new home in Asheville, and owe all of the credit to Brent and Lisa! We were working with a different agent at another firm, and had no success. Once we switched to Brent, it was like night and day. He knows how to represent buyers in this tough market. He did the research to find out what was needed to get the house. We gladly accepted his guidance and had our offer accepted in less than 24 hours. Even after closing, Brent and Lisa went above and beyond to help. Something we will forever be grateful for! Can't recommend this spectacular duo enough!!
Joey and Melissa, West Asheville
Brent and Lisa are a Class Act Team! The communicaton and turn around time on getting back with us was incredible! Never had a doubt since the day we met them that they would be a perfect fit for us. Found friends for life with them! We will use them again and refer to them excusively! Thank You Brent and Lisa!
Phil and Aimee Stahel
Brent and Lisa went above and beyond to help us find our first home. Throughout the entire house-hunting process, we were always reassured that the right home was going to come. Brent and Lisa are wonderful real estate agents but even better people. They are caring and considerate and always available to answer any questions or concerns. We would recommend their services to everyone!
Logan James, Asheville
Brent and Lisa were awesome, they went above and beyond to get the property sold quickly and at a great price.
Jim Crowley, Asheville
Brent Gamble was amazing! He was extremely professional and impressed me with his depth of knowledge, and willingness to do extra work for me, even before I signed a contract. Marketing was excellent, and he kept personally in touch with me throughout the whole process. Brent made the whole process quick and easy and gave me very good advice along the way. He is a truly wonderful person to work with combined with excellent knowledge of his field. It was all so much better than I ever imagined the process could be, all because of Brent's knowledge and work ethic. I could not recommend him highly enough.
Linda Gaines, Candler, NC
Brent Gamble came highly recommended by a friend and as soon as we met him it was easy to see why she spoke so highly of him. We appreciated his calm manner, his availability and his willingness to answer any question with a thoughtful reply. We especially appreciated his ability to negotiate with the buyer's agent and resolve any issues that came up. We would not hesitate to recommend Brent - he did an excellent job in getting us top dollar for our house.
Brent was knowledgeable, professional, patient and kind. He made the process enjoyable and fun! We would highly recommend Brent Gamble.
G. Macnamara/ Asheville
He is a great person, extremely knowledgeable professional and it was a pleasure to work him
Juan Hurtado, Asheville
Brent Gamble was the agent who helped us find our new home in Weaverville. We had worked with several other agents in the area prior to meeting Brent. Brent is very professional, consistent, timely and he provided us with all information we requested, regardless of the relative importance of that information...because we asked, Brent treated our requests with utmost respect and always responded in a timely manner. Based wholly on Brent's professionalism, skill set and patience in locating our new home, we reconsidered our choice of Agents to sell our home in Candler, the opposite side of Asheville, asking Brent to handle that negotiation as well. Brent engaged key Beverly-Hanks personnel to support his listing of our previous home and set about developing and orchestrating a winning market/pricing strategy which included a highly professional photographer, capturing the essence of our home...obtaining a full asking price contract three days following the listing...and a back-up full price offer as well. Brent is a very personable, Gentleman, Father, Husband and Real Estate Professional. Do yourself a huge favor...before selecting a Real Estate professional to work with in finding your Home...meet with Brent Gamble...within the first two minutes, you will recognize what we found...an exceptional family man, dedicated to providing the very best in professional and personal representation. Thank you, Brent...for all you do everyday! Bill and Melissa Knight
Bill and Melissa Knight, Weaverville, NC
Brent Gamble is by far the best real estate agent that we’ve ever worked with. He was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and was a true professional in every aspect. Brent kept us informed during the entire process, and his communication skills were evident throughout what could’ve been a very stressful time. I would recommend Brent to anyone who is looking to sell their home or property for a smooth and painless process. Beverly-Hanks can be extremely proud to have Brent representing their company. He’s the best!
Garry & Cindy Brown
Brent did a great job helping me find my forever home in the Asheville area. Brent is knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and treats his clients with the utmost respect. Brent went the extra distance to ensure my home buying experience was smooth and as stress-free as possible. I would highly recommend Brent for all your home buying needs!!
Mary Busse, Asheville
Brent Gamble has an incredibly high level of integrity as demonstrated daily by his willingness to provide everything you request of him..."and then some"! In the simplest of terms...Brent will be successful at whatever he does because he believes that he can have anything he wants if he just helps enough other people get what they want! Outstanding!... Beverly-Hanks is fortunate to have the many skills of Brent Gamble on their team! Brent is the best of the best...honestly! We met several Realtor/Brokers through this purchase process and were incredibly underwhelmed and discouraged...Brent was like the "Dream Team" of Real Estate sales a true breath of fresh air! Such a dramatic change...multiple levels up from who we had been exposed to...We look forward to his listing and selling our current home with the same level of professionalism and integrity as we continue to build what we hope to be a lasting friendship.
Bill and Melissa Knight, Weaverville, NC
Being a first-time home buyer, Brent was incredibly helpful. He navigated us through this process with patience, professionalism, and helped us narrow down/refine exactly what we wanted in our home. Based on our criteria, he carefully picked out homes to see, and helped us assess listings we found on our own. Closing and repairs we wanted done before moving in were equally as easy. The whole process was straightforward and seamless. Overall an excellent experience.
Colin McCormick, Asheville, NC
We cannot say enough kind things about Brent! He was so supportive, he was an advocate for us, he gave us time and his honest opinion on every aspect of the home purchase process here in North Carolina. He was patient with our situation of moving across the U.S. and having a home to sell prior to purchase here. He negotiated [well!!] and helped create a realistic list of repairs/closing credits to request - which we did receive! Brent was present at 100% focus no matter the method of communication, and came to closing to ensure everything was completed appropriately (this was so supportive in my opinion as our realtor from our first home purchase was not present and did not support my husband and I along the way). He recalled information from our inspection and recalled thoughts and considerations my husband and I had about what is important to us in a home and community. Brent is the epitome of how things should be done for a home purchase/sale - so much so that we wanted to use him to sell our home back in Wisconsin. Brent is absolutely the best: professional, thorough, kind, and funny. He maintains these qualities from start to finish of a home sale. We always felt cared for, listened to, and accommodated with Brent as our realtor. 11/10, we recommend him to EVERYONE!
Megan, Haywood County
Great broker. We refer Brent to relatives and other people who are looking to sell or buy Brent had multiple offers and house sold in 2 days. Brent was very great at what he does. Always answered all questions
This is the second time we have used Brent to purchase our homes. Both times he had provided excellent service and negotiation skills. We would gladly refer him to friends and family.
Greg Martinson/ Tami Krell
It was important to find someone who listened to our needs and preferences and would be honest about what the market had to offer within those parameters. The last thing we wanted to do was waste time viewing properties that didn’t fit what we were looking for. Brent delivered. He listened, he carefully considered and he presented only properties that were real possibilities for our family. He was fantastic throughout the process. He couldn’t have possibly made it any easier. He was attentive, friendly, a great communicator and excellent negotiator. We felt we were in good, capable, experienced hands from the beginning all the way through closing day. Brent is exactly what you hope for when hiring a real estate agent. He was great at explaining the various parts of the process and ensuring that we knew all the options we had available to us. We didn’t feel like we were just along for the ride. We felt like we were part of the process. He knows what he’s doing, but he’s not arrogant about it. I can’t say it enough...he did an excellent job. A+, 2 thumbs up, 5-stars, 10/10. We’ll recommend to others and certainly use in the future if/when we move again.
I think that Brent satisfied all of our needs in our move to NC. We had a very difficult situation moving from out of town to try and find the right house and location was not easy Brent was patient and very helpful.
Kathleen Crowley Arden
Brent made every part of my buying experience smooth, detail oriented and thorough! He took every precaution to make sure safety precautions were met during this pandemic. He communicated regularly, had answers to every question I had and provided a quality and professional experience. He was able to gauge what Asheville neighborhoods suited my budget and lifestyle and was always sending options and ideas my way. I would absolutely recommend Brent to anyone looking to purchase a home in Asheville and the surrounding areas. Thanks for everything Brent!!!
Brent was amazing to work with. I am a first time home buyer so was clueless on most things. Brent always answered my calls, responded quickly, and was very patient with me. He helped me understand everything that I was doing and gave me great recommendations. I could not have asked for a better Broker. Thank you.
Lexy Fischer, Asheville
I can’t say enough about how much we loved working with Brent. He is literally the best! This entire process could have been stressful but he took all of that out of it. He was always quick to respond to messages and texts. He never forgot if he said he would look into something for us. He is patient, kind and trustworthy. I will be recommending him to anyone who will listen! And if we ever decide to buy again, or sell, we will definitely be choosing him again.
Kelly Clubb, Asheville
Great attention to detail; excellent marketing plan: extreme client attention; courteous; prompt; excellent follow through Pure excellence in every aspect of this transaction.
Michael Schraven, Weaverville
Brent was very patient with our eagerness to view a lot of houses during the searching process. He also knew and understood what we were looking for and helped us find our perfect home. Brent and his team walked us through the buying process step by step, and our experience was pretty much stress free. We were a little nervous as first time homebuyers in a booming market, but we trusted a friend’s recommendation to use Brent and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome!
Karley & John, Asheville
Brent was a very complete broker/agent for us which was critically important since we are out of state and new to the area!
An outstanding agent!
Richard Schley Waynesville
Brent was the agent for the house we wanted to look at. We contacted him to view the house we were interested in. He responded quickly and made time for us to view the house. Because of his laid back and down to earth personality along with his versed knowledge of the area and the listing we decided to have him represent us with placing an offer and then into the purchase of our new home. Brent made every part of this process seamless for us and was such a pleasure to work with. Brent made every effort to ensure we were comfortable with all of the information and the entire process of viewing a home, asking to see it a 2nd time, placing and offer and then through purchasing our home. All of his efforts are greatly appreciated and we are thrilled with our home!
Melissa and Spencer Hilgeman
My husband and I feel so fortunate to have worked with Brent Gamble while buying our home. As first time home buyers, we felt intimated by the whole process, however, after our first meeting with Brent we instantly felt at ease. He explained every step clearly and actually made the whole process fun! He is extremely personable, kind, patient, and knows the Asheville housing market exceptionally well. Best of all, he has a great understanding of people and what they are looking for. For example, my husband and I would be at home, researching available properties online, and Brent would send us homes he thought we would like, and he could not have been more accurate in his search. He knew what we were looking for even before we did. After finding our dream home at an open house, Brent, along with Matt Gaglione, got us into our home in record time. We are forever grateful for their hard work and turning an intimidating process into an enjoyable one. I hope I get the chance to work with Brent again in the future! Thank you so much!
Jenny Della Posta, Asheville, NC
I have been amazed by Brent's familiarity and thoroughness of all the procedures and steps in home-buying. He was always prompt and available with all correspondence. I also greatly appreciated his expertise in strategy along the way. Most importantly, I am grateful for the room he gave me to make my own informed decisions on this very empowering accomplishment. Brent made this process incredibly enjoyable and stress-free.
Kimberly Stowe 8 Waterford Court
Brent was on point throughout the whole selling process.
Craig Morrison Weaverville NC
Working with Brent Gamble was a great experience. I have sold a house and purchased one now with Brent. Both went smoothly thanks to his hard work and dedication. He really learned what I wanted and helped us find the right house for us. The whole process went smoothly because of his knowledge and expertise. I will use his services again when it is time for my family to move again.
Herbie Cooper, Hendersonville
We looked forward to working with Brent Gamble, based on personal experience several years ago. We were impressed with his knowledge of local market and ideas on listing the property. We were also impressed with the support he/we received from the North Asheville office who responded quickly to our requests and were aware of the changing situations we encountered. Brent anticipated market changes and made suggestions in our listing to better meet the changing needs, especially based on feedback received from open houses and appointments. Brent stayed in front of things throughout the process, but especially as we began the closing process with us located so far away. He communicated progress as it occurred and brought the process to an excellent outcome! We would gladly recommend Brent, Eddie and Beverly-Hanks for real estate needs!
Rev. Walt Christian and Liz Christian
Brent listened to our needs and was always easy to contact. Brent was able to explain the home buying process in a way that was clear and easy to understand. Very pleased!
Brent is amazing. I’ve worked with other Realtors, and Brent far surpasses any other experience I’ve had. I trust him and his knowledge. He made this experience easy and was a huge asset for our family. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Brent came highly recommended and lived up to our high expectations. As first time homebuyers, it was important that we dealt with someone who could walk us through all parts of the buying process. He was very knowledgeable and diligent with every part of the sale. He was very easy to get in contact with and a genuinely nice person. Cannot say enough positive things about Brent or the homebuying experience he guided us through. We will use him again and recommend him to anyone.
Rebekah & Justin
Brent's a terrific agent, he led us through this process and had all the answers we needed. He priced the house perfectly and had several people interested in the property immediately. He got an offer for us in 1 day! He was always available, even on nights or weekends to discuss our concerns. We had a complicated issue arise 1 week before the sale that Brent handled flawlessly and kept the sale on track. Highly recommend Brent!
Jim Kerzwick, Weaverville
Can’t say enough great things about Brent. If we ever need another realtor we will be calling on him and recommending him to any friends and family that may need an agent.
Brent not only helped us sell our home, he also helped us find our dream home! He knows the market really well and we are extremely happy with both outcomes. Brent will not steer you wrong. I would recommend him to anyone!
Chelsea Whitson, Asheville
Brent was amazing and sold our property before it was listed in MLS. He is trustworthy and honest and goes the extra mile for his clients.
Brent was consistent and super reliable and flexible in his time spent with us. Very knowledgeable about the areas we looked in and always came up with an answer to any question we asked. One of the most dependable realtors I have ever met. Made us feel like we were the only customers he had (even though we knew we were not). Our greatest gratitude goes to Brent Gamble and Marie Fox.
Randi Cloutier, Mars Hill
Initially I was not very confident that my house would sell quickly, but after seeing the hard work of Brent Gamble and Crystal Capps, I knew that we were going to get it sold quickly. I can't say enough about how friendly and easy to work with they are. I really appreciated the way they made themselves available to talk whether it be day, night, or weekends. Thank you so much for making the sale of my home not only fast, but a stress free and easy process.
Aaron Whitson, Burnsville
Brent was great even dealing with a difficult situation that I was going through. He was understanding and helped us through the whole situation seamlessly. I really appreciate everything he did for us.
Herbie Cooper Hendersonville
Brent Gamble is THE guy you want as your broker. He was recommended by my husband's employer, Mission Health. He was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and supportive during our home shopping/buying experience. He took us all over the Asheville area, keeping in mind our wants and needs based on home size, style and distance to work. We found the perfect home for us and it wouldn't have been possible without Brent's help. Highly recommend that Brent Gamble is your go to guy for buying a new home. Thanks Brent!!
Allison Gomez, Asheville, NC
I had worked with Brent for the sale of my existing home. Having the opportunity to work with him on the sale of my current home made him an obvious choice to work with for the purchase of a new home. Brent demonstrated superior professionalism, knowledge, listened and understood what I was looking for in a new home. With this knowledge Brent immediately began sending me listings of homes that met my needs and criteria. When I was interested in seeing a home he quickly worked around my schedule in order for me to view perspective homes in a timely manner. I have purchased several homes over the years and I can say without hesitation that Brent is the best agent I have had the pleasure of working with. Brent exhibited both effective and proactive communications. I never had to reach out to him with questions as he proactively answered questions before I had to ask. I felt like Brent did everything to make the process of buying a new home an easy one for me. Although I have no intent to sell or purchase another home in the near future. I know without a doubt I reach out to Brent for either of these needs. In addition, I would highly recommend Brent to anyone who wants and needs a positive home buying experience.
Libby Dore, Asheville
I had my home listed with another agency for approximately six weeks without any results. The prior agent had an open house and no one showed. Communication was almost non existent. Brent came highly recommended and so I scheduled a time to meet with him. Brent demonstrated superior professionalism, knowledge and true desire and commitment to sale my home. When we met he came prepared with valuable information to share. Based on this information we did a small reduction in the price of my home. He had two open houses which were greatly attended. My home was listed on the website as one of the homes of the week and there were several other actions taken that I know made a huge difference in the prompt sale of my home. I have sold and purchased several homes over the years and I can say without hesitation that Brent is the best agent I have had the pleasure of working with. Communication is one of my highest priorities and there was always effective communication. I never had to reach out to him with questions as he proactively answered questions before I had to ask. There were multiple times when there was a need for someone to be present at my home during the process and Brent offered to be there if needed. I felt like he did everything to make the process an easy one for me and my family. I will use Brent again if needed and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to sell their home while minimizing if not eliminating the stress that is often synonymous with the sale or purchase of a new home.
Libby Dore, Asheville
Brent was fabulous! We started this process over a year ago, and he stuck with us through thick and thin while we slogged through the complex process of a renovation mortgage!!
Emily & Arthur Herzog, now in West Asheville
Brent was great to work with, he was on top of everything for me and was in constant contact with me throughout the process. He was able to quickly find me the perfect house in my desired neighborhood before it ever went to market and then helped me craft a competitive offer that was within my budget.
Robert, West Asheville
Brent was exceptional. He followed up with every step of the process to insure the process from start to finish was as seamless as possible. I/we could not ask for a better agent. There is not one negative or even average comment I can make regarding Brent's abilities and the service provided. He was exceptional in every way. ------------------------------------------------------- Brent's knowledge of the area and the market is exceptional. However, what set him apart from other agents was his meticulous attention to every detail during our journey. If we did not have time to visit a home for sale he would (same day) view homes on our behalf. He would review the comps and floor plans ahead of time for every home we were interested in viewing. Even when we were under contract to purchase he followed up frequently with the seller's agent and our bank to insure that every issue was being addressed as expeditiously as possible. Three days prior to our anticipated closing our bank informed us that we would not close on time and Brent managed to obtain the necessary paperwork from the seller to insure that we closed on time. If we ever sell or buy a home I have no doubt that we would enlist Brent's help and I plan to share this experience with all my friends and colleagues who are in a position to buy or sell a home.
Steven Julius, MD
I have known Brent Gamble and his wife since relocating to Asheville a few years ago. Brent's personality, integrity, and fantastic professional sense made it an easy decision to contact him to help us with our home search. I cannot think of any improvements Brent could possibly have made. Even after the sale was finalized I still had some questions and he was quick to respond and always very helpful. Brent is very hands-on and his communication level is top notch. I could contact him at any time and know he would be very responsive. If he was uncertain about any aspect of our questions, he immediately verified the answers with his lead broker at the office. I'm not certain of other broker staff assistance, the lead broker did offer some advice when we faced difficulties with the seller's agent and the lack of professionalism from his office. I always felt that the North Asheville Office is a cohesive team and always there to assist each other. Our only complaint involved the Mortgage Service Loan Officer. There was lack of communication about needing a wire of funds or Certified Check at closing. We found out 20 minutes prior to our appointment. This could have been a disaster but fortunately USAA came through with flying colors.
