About Me

After having my son, I wanted to relocate to an area with all the perks of the big city, but the quality of family life found in a smaller town. I found that perfect mix in Asheville, NC! I moved here with my family from Denver, CO in 2004.

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 Beverly-Hanks Welcome Magazine.

Buying a home for the first time by myself was incredibly intimidating and overwhelming, especially in this competitive Asheville market. Kelly took such good care of me, patiently explaining every part of the process so I could make decisions and get a great home! She is incredibly dedicated to her clients and always made time to talk to me and answer my questions. Her warmth, positive attitude and confidence made her a comfort and a joy to work with. She patiently walked me through the entire home buying process, from helping me find a loan officer and a home inspector to negotiating all of my repair requests. Kelly was always willing to go the extra mile for me, including crawling under the house on closing day to check for the completed repair on a gas pipe! I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again

Kelly Cates was tuned into what I wanted and helped me find a home that matched my dreams and my budget. I loved her vibe, she has experience, personal reflection and knowledge of her craft that was just what I needed in a buying partnership. I always felt well attended to, and that what was going on with me was the most important thing to her at that moment, yet I knew she has other clients.
