After location, presentation may be the top factor in real estate sales. Alice Griffin carefully assessed the market and our house in setting the price, and her price was on the mark. Then she took care of all the details of presentation. She did a lot of work before we went on the market, including having a top notch photographer take the pictures. Her careful preparation paid off. When we went on the market, there was an explosion of interest and an offer in 27 hours. Amazing.

Alice helped us through the details of the whole process of completing the purchase of our home. She initiated contact for us with attorney, surveyor, and inspectors. Alice did a great job of communicating with us and working under a tight due diligence period to get the contract closed on time. THANK YOU ALICE!

Tom and I would happily recommend Alice because she is high-caliber, highly ethical and understood our needs. It was obvious she took much time and care in researching properties she chose for us to visit. She possesses amazing energy, in addition to her attention to detail and knowledge of Asheville and environs. She never gave up on finding us the home we wanted, even though the location was unexpected. When we toured it, we knew we were home. Alice worked with the sellers’ realtor to ensure they met all requirements of the inspector’s recommendations. Alice is our idea of a model agent - one who listens to clients’ needs and has the ability to translate these into a successful home purchase.

Alice went above and beyond in helping me find the right home. When I told her I had been scammed when trying to rent a temporary home in Asheville, she helped researching the details and also found another spot for me. Any issues that came along, like being in a flood zone, she worked to get all my questions answered. She took me back to the same houses several times, she showed me around Asheville and suggested restaurants, etc. I’ve never had a better experience with a real estate broker.

Alice is so proud of Asheville and points out it’s beauty, character and conveniences. She paid special attention to my daughter and her boyfriend for they are moving into the home I purchased. Nina and Josh have a special fondness for Alice. We had 2 short days to search for homes and it was no problem for Alice. She found us a home, took us to, lunch shopped with the kids and drew up all contracts in 48 hours ... what a professional and charming woman.

Alice Griffin is the best realtor I've ever used anywhere. Her professionalism and many years of experience in the Asheville market made her the best choice for me. She was extremely helpful in organizing the inspection and bringing in additional inspectors to made sure the house was sound and hazard free. Alice went above and beyond her normal duties and was so helpful in arranging to have mattresses and box springs wrapped in plastic bags for me. I was very impressed with her caring attitude. She a true asset to Beverly-Hanks!

Alice was terrific. She had worked with my brother and mother on previous sales and purchases. This time we needed to sell my Mom's condo after moving her to Maine. Alice went above and beyond to keep us informed and to keep the sale on track. The buyer negotiated some unusual things - moving in prior to closing, etc. Though we were hesitant due to our distance from the property by then, we were confident Alice would handle all details appropriately - and she did. Alice is an asset to your team and was a terrific help to us in this unusual sale process. I would highly recommend her to others.

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.
