About Me

Raised in western New York near Niagara Falls. Went to college and received a criminal justice - police option degree. Life took a turn and my wife Patti and I opened a restaurant until 1986. We then moved to The Tampa Bay area of Florida in 1987. I became a Florida Realtor in 1989 and a state certified Real Estate Appraiser in 1994.. After spending over 30 years in the Florida sun, we decided, in 2020, to move to the coolness of the mountains of North Carolina with our rough coated jack russell terrier, Mini Pearl. I then got my Real Estate license in North Carolina and Georgia. We are loving our view overlooking Waynesville from 4,700 feet up on Eagles Nest Mountain. We spend some time traveling in our 40' Redwood 5th wheel RV. and keep it in an resident owned RV park in Stecoah, NC.

I would give him ten stars if I could! John's experience and tact saved the day when my husband and I were trying to purchase our home. The sellers'
confusion along with their realtor's inexperience nearly nixed the deal, but John proposed a unique compromise that made all parties happy. Experience

Thanks to John Lasky for making an unusual and difficult VA purchase go through pretty smoothly. He was professional and seemed glad to make all
necessary calls for us. We would use him again and liked his outgoing friendly demeanor.

John spent a lot of time with us. First sending us the listings that included the items on our wish list, then taking the time to show us any number of
listings that we asked. He helped us find the property that we ended up purchasing. He made the experience enjoyable! I would not hesitate to refer him to
anyone interested looking to invest in real estate.

We have had the pleasure of working with John Lasky. From the very beginning he has been extremely attentive and helpful with the entire home
buying process. John has gone above and beyond to make sure we were able to see all our options, and made time to show us homes on our tight schedule.
Because of John we were able to find the right house at the right price, and it has been a great experience.

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.
