Is peel-and-stick wallpaper a trend that will last?

Bold colors and designs are in! And one of the easiest and most popular ways to incorporate both into your home design is with wallpaper. Once a decorating taboo, peel-and-stick wallpaper has become popular among students, renters, and homeowners alike as a great choice for staying on trend without the hassle of permanent changes. But is this a trend that will last? DIYers have seen properly applied peel-and-stick wallpaper hold up well over time—more than five years in some spaces. There's no way to say when and how sharply trends will turn. But with products designed to last as long as you want, while being easy to remove when you're ready for a change, there's no sign that peel-and-stick wallpapers are going anywhere soon.

I always felt I was in good hands with LaNita Cloninger handling the sale of my home. LaNita definitely made the process less stressful from start to finish.

I cannot say enough great things about Lanita. My vacant lot in Candler should have been a quick and easy sale and I had a contract within two days. Two adjacent landowners disputed my right of way and things became difficult. This right of way had been on my Warranty Deed of record for 17 years. While I worked through this with an attorney, Lanita made several suggestions to me (that I was in agreement with) that kept my buyer in the deal. This gave me time to gather my information regarding my family's historical use of Fender Lane and time to negotiate an agreement to a Deed of Easement. I feel this deal would not have happened without Lanita. She was consistently proactive and always quickly reactive. I highly recommend Lanita. Not only is she an excellent realtor, she is very personable and highly professional. Thank you Lanita!!

LaNita Cloninger was very familiar with our Condominium Complex, because she had previously sold our neighbor's Condo, so when it came time to answer questions to our Buyers, she was able to provide detailed information, that saved us time and frustration.

LaNita's quick thinking and intuitiveness about what kind of home, and in what neighborhood we wanted to live in, got us into the "home of our dreams". We were the first lookers at this home, before it was fully registered in MLS, and we put in an offer the same afternoon. Quick and easy ! LaNita was very confident and knowledgeable about the process, and walked us through the process with ease. We have listed our condo with her, so we have great expectations that it will be sold quickly.

From the initial meeting with LaNita Cloninger to the closing, the sale of our home was handled professionally and efficiently. We were pleased with the photographs of the property and the MLS listing, as well as her recommendations regarding pricing, advertisement, etc. Her communication was timely and appropriate; we received the information we needed throughout the process. LaNita's knowledge of the local real estate market combined with her personable nature make her the perfect agent. We highly recommend her!

Lanita was fantastic and allowed us to go through the process with little anxiety that we may have experienced otherwise. In a very challenging Market, Lanita was able to find us a house that far exceeded our expectations. We could not be happier!

We met LaNita when we purchased this house 11+ years ago. Since then she has become a dear friend. Part of the reason for that is our admiration of her professionalism, dedication and positivie attitude. We knew that she would always be straight forward with her opinions and give us all the information we needed to make wise decisions. Plus, we knew we would get through the tough parts with humor!

As a first-time homebuyer I had a million questions and concerns. LaNita Cloninger was there for me the whole way through the process. She was quick to respond, extremely knowledgeable, very friendly, and very good at her job. She was attentive, and took the time to understand exactly what my family needed in a home, and we found just that! I could not imagine having a better experience, and that is due entirely to LaNita.

Every step of the way, LaNita Cloninger was knowledgeable, curious, and attentive. She responded to our every need quickly and precisely -- with patience, diligence, and expertise. She helped us find and purchase a home we love, well within the timeframe and price range we needed. Without a doubt, we will call her first, next time we are in the market!

To think that realtors are overpaid is simply a joke. LaNita worked countless hours showing me several properties and when my current home was coming on the market she got me in before it was even listed so I could get first crack at it. She was on top of every detail and made the closing very simple. Everything was handled in a very timely manner and when there were questions, she got them answered immediately. LaNita Cloninger is not only a superior real estate agent, she's a wonderful loving and caring individual that is sincerely out there helping people find their ideal home.

We were referred to LaNita by a friend and she exceeded our expectations. Our journey together lasted over a year as it included a decision to have a home built by an Asheville area builder. LaNita was engaged at every step of the process and was a constant source of information and advice. We could not recommend LaNita more highly and will definitely look for opportunities to send clients her way.

This was our second real estate transaction with LaNita. She is responsive, extremely knowledgable regarding the local market, professional and just a pleasure to deal with. After we made the very difficult decision to sell our home there, she made the entire process so much easier through her competent handling of every step, every question and every issue.

LaNita Cloninger was recommended by a friend who raved about her. Our friend was right, she was a perfect fit for our needs. We were in a hurry to get settled and she was quick to offer options and get the process rolling when we decided to make an offer. Even in a crunch, she didn't sacrifice friendliness and professionalism for speed. We would recommend her in a heartbeat.

We have worked with LaNita to buy and sell personal and investment properties over the recent decade and we have referred LaNita to a number of friends. Most recently, we sold a rental house on the open market. It became apparent after hearing LaNita's assessment that the Appraiser had overpriced the value. LaNita's comps and calculations were critical in helping us negotiate and sell this house at a reasonable price. At this point, we have more rental houses to sell. Yes, we will be working LaNita for ALL of these transactions. So if you're looking for someone who knows the business, knows the local market and is a pleasure to work with, I HIGHLY recommend LaNita as your Realtor.

I'm not sure how much of a testimonial Lanita needs, once you work with her, you'll never be satisfied with another agent. She's the kind of agent that goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She's a Rock Star agent.

We call LaNita Cloninger our "miracle worker" and friend. Over the past 3 years of our annual visits to Asheville, LaNita has guided our search for our retirement dream house, starting with a list of 23 properties, which we investigated to get acquainted with the various neighborhoods and areas of Asheville. Each year we narrowed and focused the search until we walked into the house that met our every hope--truly a miracle, thanks to her guidance and advise and encouragement. Upon finding the house, LaNita worked another miracle in charming the buyer into adjusting his asking price down $14,000. to the appraised value. Because the house had been vacant for a while, she also oversaw some repairs and cleaning. We are deeply indebted to LaNita and we relished every joyous moment we spent with her. We're happy to recommend her to any of our friends, and will call her, should we want to find yet another dream house in the future. Brava, LaNita!

I knew LaNita previously from our mutual volunteer work at Asheville Community Theatre. Since I knew her well as a person, I trusted her to do a great job selling my house in Asheville (which she did!). LaNita was great, always very communicative and easy to reach. She responded quickly to any questions I had. Selling my house was so easy!

LaNita was highly recommended by a friend of a friend. From start to finish LaNita was knowledgable, patient, pleasant and went above and beyond expectations. I spent less than a week in the area and LaNita do so much to help me find a home in a short time. Then when I was in California she made me feel that all was under control. She helped with so many things I was unable to do since I was across the country. I knew that I was in capable hands. She was thorough and professional in every way yet made me feel as comfortable as if with a friend. She is an exceptional person to work with. She is a wonderful agent and person.

LaNita was FANTASTIC! She always responded to questions or concerns and made me feel completely comfortable with the process. I felt like my house was in good hands throughout the selling process. She gave clear feedback about what should be done to prepare the house to go on the market and kept me informed throughout the sale period. She provided clear, quick responses to any questions and made the process as painless as possible!

Lanita was nothing short of spectacular. Without her, I'm not sure we would have been able to sell our home within the deadline that we were given. Also, her familiarity and knowledge of the Asheville area are considerable and contributed significantly to the sale of our home. Lanita's personality and dedication made the process a quality experience.

Being an owner of a retail business, I know the importance of customer service. I believe I am very very good at it.... LaNita and I run in parallel lines, she might even be a little better than I. Over the 7 or so years we've known each other, I have been very fortunate she chooses to work with me, and I feel we have an incredible relationship. LaNita listens, she stays on top of everything, I always feel like I am the "most important client" whenever we're together or when I'm on the phone with her. She exceeds all expectations of a PERSONABLE, lovely, and caring person. I feel like family around her. None better......Big Hug!!!

I couldn't be happier with the entire process, and with her guidance, patience and focus. Sheryl Enochs

I used LaNita when I purchased my home here in the Asheville area in 2006.  So when I decided to sell, I called on her again.  Beverly-Hanks & Associates (with LaNita as my agent) offers top-of the line services.  I wouldn't use anyone else - LaNita is #1!!

LaNita was wonderful to work with (as our listing agent-2012).  Her honest, straight-forward approach was very much appreciated.  (She was) very professional...and fun!
