About Me

I am a proud native of Black Mountain, NC. I received my BS in Communication from Appalachian State University, where I met and married my college sweetheart. We feel so fortunate to have raised our two children in this beautiful mountain town and amazing community. We are a real estate family, as my husband is a commercial real estate broker. Our daughter attends University of North Carolina at Greensboro and our son is a high school student at Owen High School.

Living in this community has made serving in it important to me, and I have been very involved in the local schools. I have served as a Girls on the Run coach, on PTOs at all different school levels, on the Owen Middle and High School Advisory Boards, and the Owen High School Athletic Booster Club.

As a family, we love to soak up everything these spectacular mountains have to offer: hiking, camping, snow skiing, or boating on Lake James! We never take for granted living in Western North Carolina. Making this area our home has been a dream come true!

Experience

I have spent much of my adult life serving others, both in the business world and within my community. As your professional real estate agent, I look forward to serving your needs, too.

After finishing school and prior to my real estate career, I worked as an insurance agent for Liberty Mutual, then served as a substitute teacher in the Buncombe County school system. As an insurance agent, I developed a strong work ethic and dedication to client service, helping homeowners with their insurance needs. While substitute teaching in the schools, I strengthened my organizational and communication skills and my love for teaching others. The combination of my experience in these very diverse fields makes it easy for me to develop meaningful personal and business relationships and navigate the intricacies of real estate.

I am a native to these beautiful mountains. Let me share my love of Western North Carolina with you—Give me a call today!

Testimonials

Hope could not have been better in all aspects of the buying process. She was exceptional especially with the fact that we were still living in San Diego during most of the process, but she had excellent communication with us and definitely went above and beyond!! It is not easy trying to buy a house from across the country, but Hope made it possible. She listened extremely well to our needs/wants and we now own a house in a neighborhood exactly as we wanted. She is the best!

Hope is fantastic!!! As an agent myself relocating to a new area, I was looking for an agent with my work ethic and someone who would treat my husband and me the way I treat my own clients. We hit the jackpot with Hope! She is so caring, professional and very knowledgeable of the market. We could not be more happy with our experience. As newcomers to the Asheville area, we were uncertain as to where we wanted to settle. Hope showed us around the entire area and worked tirelessly on our behalf. We feel like we made a friend. Thank you Hope!

I could not recommend Hope more highly for anyone considering a purchase in the Asheville/Brevard/Black Mountain areas. Every step of the way, Hope was available, helpful, and conscientious. We ended up with a property we are absolutely thrilled with thanks to Hope!

Hope was AWESOME!!! She took the time to get to understand what we were looking for, particularly since we were working from long distance. She went the extra mile to show us houses she and we thought we'd like. She pointed out things she thought we'd like, and things she wasn't so keen on. Plus, Hope was extremely responsive! Anytime we had to leave a message, she got back to us promptly! Hope was particularly good when it came to pricing. She told us what she thought the house was worth, and that's what we paid, at a time when most houses we were looking at devolved into bidding wars. Very happy with that! I'd recommend Hope to anyone!

This property (partially developed land) had been under contract twice before, with the buyers cancelling the contract for reasons not relating to Hope Burk's performance. Hope continued to work very hard for me to ultimately sell the property for a very fair price. I was extremely pleased with her persistence and felt she went above and beyond in her role as the listing agent. I will never use anyone else if Hope is available!

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.
