About Me

My family has been involved in Asheville real estate since 1970. Growing up in the real estate industry prepared me to grow and succeed in business. I started my professional real estate career 25 years ago after receiving my Bachelor of Science degree from Appalachian State. My goal is to provide my insight and knowledge of the local real estate industry to help my clients make educated decisions. I enjoy sharing my passion of the area and feel fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful area of the blue ridge mountains.

I am passionate about giving back to the community. Being a member of the Junior League of Asheville gave me the opportunity to advise and advocate children in the area. I spend my free time hiking, skiing. off shore fishing, enjoying the outdoors during all the beautiful seasons our region has to offer.

Ask An Expert


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.
