About MePronouns: She / Her / Hers
After growing up on Long Island, I ventured off to the NY State School of Ceramics at Alfred University in Western New York before giving Bozeman, Montana a try. That's where I met my husband, Tom. We relocated to Asheville in search of an art haven with a small-town feel. Tom wanted to fish, and I needed a supportive community for my pottery studio. We quickly fell in love with the area's natural beauty and community.
Fast forward to 2004, when we bought a house in the Oakley neighborhood of East Asheville. Our kids attended Oakley Elementary and AC Reynolds Middle School, and now they're at Reynolds High. When I am not driving my children across all of Buncombe County, we enjoy days at Lake James, and trying Asheville's newest hot spots. We have found our home, and I will help find yours too!

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.
