About Me

I find that helping others achieve their goals is the surest path to success and happiness. I pour my energy into creating a positive experience for my clients while advocating for their interests. My process begins with asking questions and really listening to understand wants and needs. When I’m able to understand where you want to go, I can help you get there.

I was born and raised in Florida, but I really grew up at camp here in Bat Cave, North Carolina. I was a teacher in the Peace Corps before settling happily in Washington, DC for much of my twenties. One day, a lovely woman from Brevard, NC came into Biddy Mulligan’s Pub with a mutual friend and I had to meet her. Eventually, she agreed to marry me and we’ve made Western North Carolina our home ever since.

We live on a small farm established in the 1890’s with our two-year-old son, baby girl, scruffy dog, two cats, beehives, and a bunch of chickens. In addition to real estate, I enjoy homesteading, beekeeping, brewing, woodworking, poker, the outdoors, and travel.

Testimonials

Jesse Shepherd did a really good job explaining the paperwork that I had to sign. He gave me a lot of helpful advice on what changes I can do to my home that would draw in buyers. Jesse went out of his way to meet me during my busy schedule and I work all the time. He answered any questions I had and was just easy to talk to about things. I really appreciate him answering all my questions and being flexible with my crazy work life.

Jesse received high ratings from a neighbor who sold her house a year before me. I valued her opinion and, upon meeting with Jesse, felt we were compatible in our approach to real estate. Jesse always had constructive suggestions, credible local referrals and was always considering my needs. If I had another property to sell or buy in this area I'd not hesitate in working with Jesse again. He represents his company - and the sellers interest -with professionalism which is also authentic. My house went to contract in a week. We could have left it on the market longer but I was happy with the offer we received. Jesse's balanced views kept me as non-emotional as possible throughout that first, extremely exhausting week. He was the leader and I gratefully followed.

Jesse Shepherd is the best realtor we've ever worked with. Our family has purchased five homes in the last 15 years, and worked with a number of realtors in NC and other states. Jesse was knowledgable, friendly, patient, and went above and beyond to meet us at times that worked for our family. He met with contractors when we weren't available, he negotiated aggressively (but politely) on our behalf, and really demonstrated to us how awesome an experience working with a GREAT REALTOR can be. He is currently representing us on the sale of another property and we got FULL ASKING PRICE ON THE FIRST DAY when it was listed. His attention to detail on the listing and marketing plan were impeccable. I plan to live in WNC the rest of my life, and I also plan to buy more property. Jesse will be the realtor we use in all future real estate transactions. I'm telling you, he changed my whole view on what it can be like to buy or sell a house. THANK YOU, JESSE!

Jesse was recommended by our previous broker, and he far surpassed our expectations for professional service. His attention to the details of closing the sale, and his availability throughout the process, highlight the difference between himself and other agents. Jesse knew what to do, and when to do it.

We had worked with Jesse in 2017 for a second property that seemed impossible to find but found it. So when it came time to sell our primary residence there wasn’t any question about who was going to be our realtor. He already knew our personalities and how crazy it could be dealing with us. Jesse knew the area, market, and got our house under contract in less than 48 hours. He helped make the stressful part of selling bearable!! We highly recommend him and are glad to call him a friend.

He encouraged us to get a power of attorney so my pregnant wife did not have to leave the house to sign paperwork. That helped ease our nerves - and kept our family safe. He went above and beyond - even helped us get a light fixture from our home (basically took it down himself) and hand delivered to our new home - during COVID-19.

Jesse Shepherd did a great job helping us find our first home and seeing us successfully through the process. We were initially under contract with Jesse as our agent to purchase another property and he alerted us to problems that we otherwise could not have found on our own. He clearly communicated with us what to do next and kept us informed every step of the way. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and at no time did we ever feel pressured to make a decision. He was always clear on what was happening and what to expect next. Jesse was at every inspection, meeting and worksite that we were unable to attend and we felt confident with him making decisions on our behalf. We found a house we really like with Jesse and think others working with him will too. Thanks Jesse, L and T

Jesse was wonderful and a pleasure to work with! As a first-time home buyer, I had little understanding of the process, and Jesse did all the research and legwork for me, while at the same time making sure I understood everything that was going on. He ensured that I was able to make informed decisions at every step in the process. Most importantly, he really listened to me and helped me find the perfect house for my family. Unlike other agents I had spoken with, he did not try to push me to go over my budget. Even after closing, he continued to go the extra mile by following up and making sure things were going well with the contractors I had chosen to do some work on the house. He made what could have been nerve-wracking an enjoyable experience.

Jesse Shepherd is open and honest in his dealings and it is clear that he keeps the best interest of his customer front and center. I have total confidence that he looked out for me and wholeheartedly recommend him. Mr. Shepherd attended to every detail and discovered several important issues we were able to resolve before closing - this saved us money and potential future problems! He knows the right questions to ask the inspector, the seller and others - his knowledge of construction and building is an important asset. Finally, having been through a number of real estate closings in my life, I can say this one was the easiest and totally seamless.

Jesse Shepherd did a great job helping us find our first home and seeing us successfully through the process. We were initially under contract with Jesse as our agent to purchase another property and he alerted us to problems that we otherwise could not have found on our own. He clearly communicated with us what to do next and kept us informed every step of the way. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and at no time did we ever feel pressured to make a decision. He was always clear on what was happening and what to expect next. Jesse was at every inspection, meeting and worksite that we were unable to attend and we felt confident with him making decisions on our behalf. We found a house we really like with Jesse and think others working with him will too. Thanks Jesse, L and T

Jesse invested much time and effort in the process of listing and eventual sale of our home. His personal attention to our needs, also ensuring that our property was featured well is greatly appreciated. Jesse is quite personable while maintaining a degree of professionalism that one would expect from an agent entrusted with the sale of a home. We highly recommend Jesse as an agent with your Hendersonville office.

After meeting with Jesse, we really liked his enthusiasm and personal demeanor and appreciated his knowledge of local real estate and his plan for marketing our property. It was very easy to work with him throughout the entire process of selling our property, and we felt that he always had our best interests in mind. We really enjoyed working with Jesse, and never had the opportunity to deal with anyone else in the local office. We would heartily recommend Jesse Shepherd to anyone thinking of buying or selling property in the Hendersonville area. He is a pleasure to work with.

Jesse's actions were true testimony to customer service far exceeding the kind of service of a regular real estate office. We remain thankful to have met Jesse...a true professional agent. Thanks again Jesse for your attention to detail and caring so well for us...it was just outstanding!

Jesse was wonderful and a pleasure to work with! As a first-time home buyer, I had little understanding of the process, and Jesse did all the research and legwork for me, while at the same time making sure I understood everything that was going on. He ensured that I was able to make informed decisions at every step in the process. Most importantly, he really listened to me and helped me find the perfect house for my family. Unlike other agents I had spoken with, he did not try to push me to go over my budget. Even after closing, he continued to go the extra mile by following up and making sure things were going well with the contractors I had chosen to do some work on the house. He made what could have been nerve-wracking an enjoyable experience.

Jesse Shepherd is open and honest in his dealings and it is clear that he keeps the best interest of his customer front and center. I have total confidence that he looked out for me and wholeheartedly recommend him. Mr. Shepherd attended to every detail and discovered several important issues we were able to resolve before closing - this saved us money and potential future problems! He knows the right questions to ask the inspector, the seller and others - his knowledge of construction and building is an important asset. Finally, having been through a number of real estate closings in my life, I can say this one was the easiest and totally seamless.

Mr. Shepherd is all-around knowledgable, remarkably resourceful and very easy to communicate with. I found him to be completely trustworthy, witty, intelligent, kind, thoughtful and very positive every step of the way. I'll see you in another few years Mr. Shepherd. Thank you very, very sincerely.

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.
