About Me

Born and raised in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, I moved to Asheville in 1985 after graduating from Hillsdale College with a B.A. in Political Economics. The following year, I married Asheville native Leslie Byrd. We have a daughter and son who also live in Asheville.

Since arriving to Asheville in the 1980s, I have seen firsthand the immense growth of the region—all of which makes Asheville a unique place to live. During the summer, I enjoy spending free time with family and friends on Lake Summit in south Henderson County. You can find me there by a bonfire and playing a serious game of corn hole.

Experience

I began my real estate career after 25 years as an Asheville business owner. My family’s retail garden centers and wholesale greenhouses grew to include a landscape division. Through those connections, I came to work with developer Biltmore Farms on many properties marketed by Beverly-Hanks since the company’s inception. Some of these properties include Biltmore Park, The Ramble Biltmore Forest, Biltmore Lake, and South Cliff.

As your full-time real estate agent, I am able to incorporate this wealth of Biltmore Farms experience with all I have learned as a private real estate investor in both residential property and commercial development. As a business owner in retail, wholesale, and service industries, I have a true appreciation of how each real estate transaction may be the largest decision in a person’s life.

Whether you are buying or selling a home, looking for an investment, or starting a business, I am available to help you at every step with your unique needs.

It was truly a pleasure working with Gordon Farquhar to get my property sold during the onset and growth of the pandemic Covid 19 Virus. The property was priced correctly and was a very desirable purchase. He also was quite helpful as I continued to rent this as a vacation rental through much of the process. We had many offers and several contracts during the selling time which was very much hindered by the pandemic - causing delays and unwanted terminations by several buyers. Gordon was very calm and helpful as we negotiated unchartered waters in a very stressful time. He was extremely adept at working with other Buyers Agents who, like the rest of us, were sometimes baffled by the situation. I highly recommend Gordon to help you in all aspects of Real Estate and appreciate his help tremendously. Lucy B.

Gordon was timely in all communication, even when my calls came late on Sunday nights. We greatly appreciated his willingness to reach out to us with updates on the buying process and his prompt responses whenever I had a question. He was thorough in his handling of our business and gentle with his own recomendations. As a first timer, I needed a bit more guidance and Gordon provided that. Thank you.

Gordon was just great to work with. I was traveling and Gordon took it upon himself to ensure all inspection work was complete and other obligations of the seller were met. He always was available when I called or text. As an always anxious buyer or seller, that’s important. Just totally a nice, trustworthy guy. Thanks for making it easy Gordon.

Gordon's performance was outstanding in all aspects. We have never had a better experience with a Real Estate Agent. Meticulous attention to detail and follow-up after the sale. As a disabled veteran I was most pleased with the extra consideration shown on my behalf.

We met Gordon with another agent at an Open House one Sunday afternoon. He listened to exactly what we wanted and immediately offered a showing of multiple properties that very next week. He was immediately attentive to our needs and very respectful of our difficult work schedule. Gordon did a fantastic job in helping us navigate the complex due diligence and closing process. He did a great job keeping the deal alive and moving forward!

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.
