About Me

A native of the Carolinas, I was born along the coast of North Carolina and later moved to Greenville SC where I played soccer and golf for Wade Hampton High School. I attended the University of South Carolina and graduated with a B.S. in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management. Throughout my career, I have worked and lived in wonderful places such as St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 2005, I moved to Asheville N.C. where I met my wonderful wife and we settled down to start a family. We both love being outdoors and fishing is a passion, so we purchased a farm in Brevard N.C. along the French Broad River. We raise Belted Galloway Cattle and Tennessee Walking horses for trail riding the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our daughter loves growing up on the farm and playing outside. We spend our free time playing golf, hiking, horseback riding, cruising the parkway, and fly fishing the mountain streams.

Experience

With more than 15 years of experience in the high-end luxury real estate industry, my primary focus has been development sales working and consulting for several communities across Western North Carolina. Having settled in to the Cliffs at Walnut Cove in 2012, I finished as the top sales agent across the seven communities four times and have been consistently named a top 100 realtor in our region year after year for over a decade. I was named President of the Walnut Cove Realty in 2020 which manages close to $100 million in sales volume. As a member of the Walnut Cove community myself, I can assist with navigating the various options of planned community development in our region with first-hand knowledge and expertise.

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.
