About Me

Lee is a Hendersonville native who joined Beverly-Hanks in 2005. Prior to joining Beverly-Hanks, Lee worked in the golf course industry as an assistant superintendant. He also worked in management and on special projects teams at Wilsonart International. Lee received his education through the Henderson County Public Schools System. He continued his education at Blue Ridge Community College and Appalachian State University where he concentrated on Criminal Justice. Lee conducts his business from the Hendersonville Beverly-Hanks & Associates office.

Lee is currently a member of Etowah Valley Golf Club but is very familiar with all the local clubs in the area. So, if you're looking for that private club that has the "social" atmosphere or you're just an avid golfer that wants to play a challenging golf course without a lot of the extras he can help find the right fit for you.

Experience

Having been in Real Estate since 2005 I have experienced both high and low markets. Needless to say I learned a lot more during the down years and found ways to thrive during those times and remain a full time broker. I have gained the knowledge and experience needed to help both buyers and sellers make a smooth transition no matter what the circumstances. Part of that is the relationships that I have been fortunate enough to make over the years with local real estate attorneys, home inspectors, general contractors & handymen that have helped my clients home buying/selling process go smoothly!

Testimonials

Had faith before we started that Lee would sell my property. Although their were inherent difficulties with my property that hindered the sale, he kept me calm and confident throughout the entire process.

Lee is the best real estate agent I have worked with.

Lee listened carefully to my explanations of what I needed and wanted and translated my input into homes to view that were closer and closer to my criteria until we found my "perfect" match. He was an excellent consultant with every decision in the process, providing much needed expertise and informed opinions while respecting my choices. His warm friendly personality and sense of humor are added bonuses that make him a joy to work with. His recommendations for mortgage processor and attorney have also been 5 star performers. I think Lee Stepp delivered top value for every penny of his commission. My friends are already asking with whom I worked to get this job done so well and so quickly. I am carrying Lee Stepp's business cards with me to give them. I have purchased a home several times in the past but always with my husband as a partner. This was my first time thrugh the process on my own. I really appreciated that Lee never pressured me in any regard and was always patient and supportive. The process was fun and enjoyable (mostly) and we got outstanding results!!!

Both my wife and I couldn't be more satisfied with our experience. Lee Stepp told us what he could sell our home for with a projected timeframe of 90 days. We got the exact amount he referenced and had us under contract in 60 days. He was always responsive to our inquiries and delivered.

I used Mr. Stepp nearly a year ago for property that ended in me not buying the piece. Another opportunity came about and I did not hesitate in calling him. He was so helpful and understanding the first time, I didn't want anyone else handling my purchase. I have recommended his services to others because of my pleasant experience with him.

Lee Stepp was very helpful throughout the entire process of selling and purchasing my home. During the process of closing my house that I was selling Lee did everything in his power to help move things along when the buyers were dragging their feet. Lee did a great job communicating and keeping me in the loop with every little thing that was happening. I would fully recommend Lee Stepp to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Hendersonville, NC area.

What an incredible experience! As first time home buyers, my wife and I heard many horror stories from friends and family about the process of buying a home. Lee Stepp defied everyone of them. We enjoyed the entire process and had such a wonderful experience and ended up finding a wonderful home that fits our needs and will be a great house to begin raising our kids. Even when things didn't turn out the way we hoped, Lee kept us involved, encouraged, and optimistic. Lee is that broker that is willing to go above and beyond to ensure that the clients are happy and comfortable throughout the process! Day or night, weekday or weekend, Lee would always return my emails/texts/calls. He knows the area very well and made sure to understand exactly what we were looking for. We had to bring our infant son and 2 yr old daughter with us most times and Lee was not only patient with them but he was far beyond polite/friendly/professional/approachable. After the third viewing my daughter would even run up and hug his leg the minute we met. I can go on and on with positive feedback about our overall experience with Lee. We are so happy we were able to work with him. I will continue to enthusiastically recommend Lee to everyone I know!!! When we decide to buy a new house, Lee will certainly be the first person we call.

We have relocated over 20 times and bought multiple homes in differing areas of the USA but frankly Lee Stepp stands out as simply the best agent we have ever dealt with. His thoroughness and knowledge which included liaising with the builder made the whole process go so much more smoothly and efficiently, yet always conscious of our cost parameters. We would strongly recommend Lee to anyone considering moving to WNC!

"Lee and Sonny have a level of professionalism and commitment that far exceeds those of other realtors we have worked with to sell the specail assets held by the bank. They are always prepared with thoughts and ideas of each specific property, but at the same time not afraid to say "let me do some more checking on that and get back to you". Most importantly, they always follow up with the answers. When we have issues that arise, one of them is always available by phone to take my call. They gladly shared their cell phone numbers with us and keep us abreast of developments with potential buyers""

 "Lee Stepp and his partner Sonny Iler provided us with exceptional service in finding the home of our dreams. Over the course of a year they provided us with listings that met our criteria at the time. When we had exhausted the homes that met the very specific requirements, they thought “outside the box” and came up with listings that we would not have otherwise considered. Within the next week we saw the house that we were destined to purchase. During the next two and one half months we tried to purchase the bank owned property but were being stymied by the bank. Lee and Sonny were instrumental in finally breaking the logjam and sheparding our bid to the bank. The bank required a close in 14 days. The expert assistance and planning of Lee and Sonny made this timeframe work, and we were prepared to close early. They showed the highest levels of patience and integrity in dealing with us and all other parties to the transaction. Lee and Sonny’s assitance did not stop when the deal was completed. They helped us find trades people and service providers to smooth the transition to our new home. We could not be happier with the service that they provided and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing real estate services."

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.
