About Me

Laura is an Atlanta native who relocated to Asheville in 1999.

Laura and her husband, Matt own a small farm in Polk County near the Tryon International Equestrian Center and 5 miles from the South Carolina line. Owning a small farm has also opened up channels of understanding buying and selling larger tracts of land. In the past they built two homes in Fairview, located about 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. Acting as general contractor on both homes Laura has a true understanding of what is involved throughout the entire construction process. Her understanding of the building process from the ground up goes a long way towards insuring your needs are met and your real estate experience is seamless.

When not working, Laura is spending time with her husband, taking care of their Border Collie pup, kitties, chickens and guineas. She also enjoys baking, gardening and fishing!

If you are looking for an agent that has a keen sense of "listening" to her clients needs, Laura is the agent for you.

Laura was recommended to us by a family friend due to her construction knowledge and local expertise in the area. She was able to attend to our needs and weird schedule. She was always available to answer questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed to us. 10\10 would recommend.

Laura Branyon is probably the best agent that we have used, and we have moved a lot! Since we are out of state we relied on Laura a lot. Her local knowledge and advice really helped us in finding the right house, in the right spot. She never seemed to care how many times we called or texted her, how many questions we asked, she always seemed eager to help. We believe that she did everything she could to make our purchase go smoothly. We did have a few hiccups, but she dealt with them. We would recommended Laura because she truly seems to listen to what her clients are asking for. She is patient, knowledgeable, and very friendly. She stepped in and made phone calls to local businesses when necessary. She was ahead of the game throughout the entire process. I don't think we will be looking for another house in this area anytime soon, because we found the perfect one. But if, for any reason we do, we will 100% ask Laura to help us.

Laura was recommended to us by our local agent in Maryland. We couldn't have asked for anyone better! Over the Labor Day weekend, we saw a house we liked but were concerned someone else may put in a contract first. Laura drove to the house that day and made some videos for us. We decided to put a contract in based upon those videos. Once we saw the house in person, we knew we made the right choice. Laura made it happen for us with her "above and beyond approach." We were extremely pleased with Laura; her friendly personality, her knowledge of the area, along with her infinite patience with us made the entire experience extremely pleasant!

We had used Laura when we bought our home in Asheville 9 years ago and did not think twice about using her when we were considering selling. We contacted her a year in advance to have her review the market with us and during that time she conducted a few market reports as the market changed, updated us regularly on homes that were selling in our area and kept us informed until we were ready to list. Laura is knowledgeable, kind, professional, patient and diligent; everything you would want in an agent. She advocated for us when necessary, set realistic expectations and met us where we were throughout all of the stages of the sales process.

We stayed with Laura once we had met her because of her professionalism and her clear understanding of the type of house and ammenities that we were looking for in a house. She was always prompt to get back to us when we had questions or concerns. Laura always followed up on a showing to ask what our thoughts were and to see what our interest was in the house shown. Her patience and kindness are extraordinary in the business! I would highly recommend Laura to my family and friends!

Laura was amazing throughout this whole process. She understood what I was looking for in my first home and made the stress of buying a house a breeze. It was certainly obvious that the needs of her clients came first. I highly recommend Laura if you are in the market to buy or sale. You won't be disappointed.

Laura Branyan helped us to feel comfortable and confident throughout the purchase experience. She listened to us as we shared with her our ideal location, and the ideal characteristics that were desirable in our new home search. Her patience and professionalism were evident throughout our search, and her objective & experienced counsel was much appreciated during the negotiations. We enthusiastically endorse Laura, and are confident that her future buyer clients will have a similar experience when selecting Laura to represent them.

From the moment I decided to make a move to Asheville, Laura began working to help me with my relocation. She kept me informed, provided me with housing options in my price range - and once I made a choice - she proceeded in a timely and efficient manner to carry me through the contractural process. I couldn't be more pleased and know that Laura continually went the extra mile to make my transition an easy and smooth process.

Laura Branyan was fabulous! Please see testimonial for 9 Bridgestone Road. She worked both these contracts at the same time for me, and I couldn't have been happier with anyone else.

Laura Branyan was fabulous! She took all the time I needed to answer questions and concerns. She went out of her way to attend inspections, when I could not be there. And she made sure I had a thorough understanding of everything I missed. In addition, she took the time to put answers to questions in writing for me, so that I could reference them after the fact. She responded quickly and took extra time to be sure I felt comfortable with concerns and decisions I had made. It is difficult for me to put in writing how wonderful Laura is. She was perfect for me, and I wouldn't choose any other agent in the future!

Laura was always very positive the right solution for my family would come along. She was right! We finally found the perfect house for myself and my boys.

Professionalism was incredible. We absolutely loved working with Laura and Eric Clonch of B-H Mortgage.  They just made the whole process so easy. 

Laura was very helpful and instrumental in the sale of my home.  She was able to take care of many issues as I was out of town.  She is wonderful!

Laura was very professional, courteous, efficient and effective.

It was very scary purchasing property out of state but Laura made it a very pleasant experience. She was very nice, very helpful and very professional.

Laura Branyan was the best realtor we've ever had!

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.
