Katie Glicksberg And Jay Gerlach
We joined our backgrounds in public and private sector work to form a real estate team with the knowledge, experience, and connections to serve our clients and community at the highest level. Our families and friends are well established in the Western North Carolina region, and we know what it means to call this beautiful area of the country home. We view assisting clients in that same pursuit of 'home' as more than simply a job, but a service to others which both of us approach in a highly serious and professional manner. We believe that partnering in this endeavor provides us the ability to maximize our availability to clients and work at the most efficient and effective level to help make your real estate goals a reality. From the first conversation and past closing, we want to build a relationship with you as your trusted real estate advisors to whom you turn for real estate information during the transaction process and beyond. We truly love our work, and look forward to working with you!
I grew up in Black Mountain, and I’m a proud graduate of UNC Asheville with a B.S. in Environmental Studies. In my free time, I can usually be found attending a local soccer game or tennis match for my teenage son, Killian, or hiking with our three rescue dogs. My husband, Scott, and I love to check out a concert at the many local venues or grab dinner and a drink at one of the amazing local restaurants and breweries that Asheville is known for. I also love to embrace my creative side, and spend a lot of time sewing or knitting, and making soap for local craft shows.
I grew up in the Mountain State of West Virginia, and have always been drawn to the mountains. My wife, Amanda, and I moved to Asheville in early 2013, and desire to make the area our “forever home.” We are attracted to the spirit of the people here, as well as the natural beauty of the area. We’ve found Western North Carolina to be a perfect setting for raising our two daughters, Maya and Brooklyn. As a family, we enjoy hiking, taking advantage of the numerous parks in the area, hanging out on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, fishing, and attending our girls’ softball games and dance recitals.
I truly believe Western North Carolina has it all, and I’m excited to help others call this gorgeous region of the country home.
We are professionals and business partners working seamlessly together to deliver the best real estate service possible to our clients. We aspire to be your trusted advisors by first listening to your real estate needs and desires before applying our knowledge of the market and Western North Carolina region to effectively and efficiently achieve your objectives. We do this through clear and transparent communication, a proactive approach to the transaction process, calmly navigating any potential hurdles by utilizing our local contacts and firm resources, and representing you through and beyond closing. We believe real estate is about relationships, and we are ready, able, and excited to work alongside you to confidently pursue and achieve your real estate goals. Let's get started today!

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.

Katie Glicksberg and Jay Gerlach are a down-to-earth, family-oriented, supportive team that know they're bringing your dreams alive when they're showing you homes. They know it can be an emotional rollarcoaster, and they are there every step of the way, for as long as it takes, through the laughter, sweat, tears and triumph! It is their pleasure to serve you, and they know this process takes time. In this mountainous area, I was impressed that either of them would drive far to be at our showings and in a timely manner. We ventured to the far reaches of WNC looking for a home, and they didn't hesitate, one of them was there for us immediately. What a team they make! When Katie was out of town, Jay was there for us, showing us numerous homes. I appreciated their patience, non-judgmental support, their time in talking to all family members involved, extended family members as well. They both have a calm and a kind demeanor, I appreciated that thoroughly. Katie would answer any of my financial questions or inspection questions with patience and intelligence. We had a smooth, absolutely friendly experience with Katie and Jay, and yes, we consider them friends for life now! I will look back at my house hunting experience with fondness for the adventure it turned out to be, and their informative guidance made it flow ever-the-more smoothly. Thank you, Katie and Jay, for your positive attitudes and absolute support during this adventure of our dreams coming true as home owners. They both kept saying, "You'll know when it's right," and boy, was that ever the case! We knew. They knew. We are very grateful.

Finding a home in today’s market has been brutal. We entrusted in Katie and Jay and they went above and beyond any expectations in terms of commitment, professionalism, and market knowledge. Katie is a sweetheart and is the fastest person ever at picking up the phone and helping! She is extremely patient and kind. She was there every step of the way and wish everyone could work with someone like Katie. Jay is absolutely filled with market knowledge and is just as fast as Katie at responding. Jay kept us calm during the whole process and handled the process professionally. Jay taught us about the process and implemented the process perfectly, more so than I believe other agents could. The team of Katie & Jay helped us find our dream home and I’d absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Katie was an absolute joy to work with and made the process extremely easy and manageable. Together with Jay they were always available to assist with questions and on the spot showings.

Katie Glicksberg was EXTREMELY helpful during the home buying process. She had great ideas to help make my offers stand out while dealing with low inventory and it being a sellers market. I will be using her services again and will recommend her to anyone I know!

We actually did not select Beverly-Hanks or Jay Gerlach -- we called the number of the firm handling the housing development we were interested in and were transferred to the agent taking call-ins. HOWEVER, we have said over and over how fortunate we were that Jay was the one taking calls that day because he was absolutely wonderful. He listened to us, offered insights, shared his knowledge, and when he didn't know the answer, he told us he didn't and then went to work to find the answer. Jay was very thorough explaining everything about the contract, deposits, etc. We have made real estate purchases in the past, but we live in Maryland where things are a bit different. We were back in Maryland during the due diligence period, and Jay was extremely helpful. He even met the builder we are considering using at the lot since we could not be there ourselves. He also communicated with both the loan officer and closing law firm as needed. He additionally attended closing with us and it was so great to have him be there as we made everything official. Making this purchase was an important journey, and we feel so fortunate to have had Jay guiding and accompanying us along the way. We can honestly say Jay is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with, and we have worked with -- or attempted to work with (so many don't return phone calls) -- numerous agents over the years. He communicated so well -- emails, texts, calls -- that we felt like he was down the street and not hundreds of miles away. Our loan officer commented more than once how responsive Jay was and how quickly he sent her items they needed. And he is simply a quality individual -- all of the above words truly describe him. Purchasing property in a distant state is a scary concept, but we can honestly say we did not feel any different than we did purchasing property close by. And we also can honestly say this was the best real estate transaction experience we have ever had.

Katie was absolutely wonderful during the whole process. She was very patient with us as first time homebuyers and answered any questions we had to the best of her ability. I would recommend her to anyone trying to purchase a home in this area!
