About Me

Although I have only lived in Asheville since 2018, I have been coming to this area for decades. I spent my childhood living in the Knoxville and Sevierville Tennessee area, so my heart and soul have always belonged to the mountains! My teenage years and beyond were spent in Columbia South Carolina where I eventually became an Executive Administrative Assistant for one of the largest insurance software firms in the country. I have over 35 years of experience in administrative services, including being the assistant to the Chief of Human Resources for one of the largest Blue Ribbon School Districts in Columbia South Carolina.

I have certifications in interior decorating and event planning. I also love painting, arts and crafts and traveling (especially to Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga - See Rock City!). My husband and I love to work on cars and attend car shows whenever we can. I am a proud Mom of two strong and talented kids; a daughter who is an artist and small business owner; and a son who is an aspiring author and living in St. Thomas with his sweet wife. I have two rescue kitties, Lucy and Ethel. I have realized my dream of owning my own mountain home in Hendersonville and am loving my mountain life every day!

How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?

Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Welcome magazine.
