I moved to Western North Carolina in 2005 from St. Francisville, Louisiana, and immediately fell in love with the area. Years later, my wife and I settled in Brevard. While our main joy is spending time with our young son and chocolate lab, we fill free time with hobbies that make the most of the incredible opportunities found here in the mountains—biking, hiking, golfing, playing music, snowboarding, finding new swimming holes, and cooking BIG cajun meals with friends.
Whether it's purchasing a home, making an investment, or browsing the market, I will work with you hand-in-hand to find the best fit for your needs.
I began my career in real estate by investing in properties in North Carolina and Louisiana. Seeing the financial rewards and lifestyle benefits that come with making smart real estate moves sparked a passion to help others. As a full-time real estate expert, I like to share my knowledge of our unique housing market to help you find a home that enhances your lifestyle or sell a home to reach your dreams.
Prior to working in real estate full time, I shared my passion for the outdoors with young people from all over the world as a summer camp director. I still remain very active in our area's camping community, and my wife still runs one of the most historic camps in the area.
Contact me anytime to discuss how I can help fulfill your real estate needs.

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.
