About Me


I am originally from the Nashville, TN area and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in English Literature. After college, my previous career took me to Detroit, where I met my husband, Jim. We spent 16 years in Traverse City, MI, raising our family of three children on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. In 2008, we moved to the mountains to expand our retail computer business, City Mac. After building a life in Michigan, I know firsthand about moving, finding the right school, and starting over. I wouldn't trade my experiences for the world, and I am grateful that I can now help make that process easier for my clients.

I am passionate about yoga and am a 500CYT (master-level certified yoga teacher). Personal growth through meditation and yoga are an integral part of my every day. I am thankful for yoga and for a life that is fantastically full of music and art. My husband and son are both musicians and my daughter is an artist. As a family, we love music and the arts as well as all things outdoors. Some of our favorite family fun memories are combining these things such as watching my husband's shows or camping twice a year at the LEAF world music festival in Black Mountain.

I serve on the board of LEAF Community Arts, a nonprofit organization building community that connects cultures and enriches lives through local and global arts by holding festivals, community events, and arts education programs. My continued involvement and enjoyment of the LEAF organization fulfills my deep commitment to community service in a rewarding, fun, and colorful way. I also serve on the board of REACH which encourages real estate agents in the region to contribute to Homeward Bound WNC through the REACH Fund to help end chronic homelessness in Western North Carolina.

Experience


I have had a passion for the business of real estate for years, even long before I earned my broker's license. I have been on both sides of real estate transactions multiple times myself, so I can relate to my clients' experiences first hand. My goal is to support my clients the way I would want to be supported: with experience, knowledge, and patience.

It warms my heart that my clients have referred to me as "good natured, knowledgeable, and accessible." Both investors and personal homebuyers appreciate that my renovation experience helps them visualize a home's potential. Even if I'm not there helping with the renovation myself, I have the ability to connect them with the professionals that can help them complete their dreams. In addition, my passion for design also helps me show the best side of my sellers' homes.

I have called Asheville and WNC home since 2009 and I adore it! I enjoy architecture, houses, and spending time getting to know my clients. I feel grateful to have a successful career doing something I love! Most importantly, I would honor the opportunity to serve as your professional real estate agent and help you buy or sell your home.

Testimonials

Neely was great to work with. She was friendly and efficient and moved the process through at a speed that worked for me. I really appreciated her hard work and professionalism. I had total trust and will work with Neely on my next move. Neely was very patient and helped explain the process as it had been a few decades since my last move. This was an interstate move with different requirements in each location so it was wonderful to have an experienced realtor who took care of the complexities of the sale. Neely was great to work without throughout the entire process. I was very happy. I valued Neely's timeliness, approachability, and trustworthiness as well as her knowledge. I felt as if I were in capable hands.

We will definitely recommend her to all our family and friends.

It's a very tight market. Neely was relentless in making sure that we were made aware of any possible property in a time frame that we could act. We had actually contracted to purchase a different property earlier in the process but upon inspection it became clear that the property needed significant repair and that it was overpriced. Neely went to bat and got a significant portion of our due diligence money returned to us. Our story has has a very happy ending!

We worked with Neely Neu and Marie Morris to purchase a house and had a great experience. We were equally as pleased with our experience on the selling side. They walked us through the whole selling process and made sure to dot the i's and cross the t's.

I did recommend them to my friend in California & she also used Marie & Neely to purchase her home in Fletcher.

I was introduced to Neely before moving to the area and she was so helpful in all areas. She took the time to follow up, to connect me with potential job contacts, and helped facilitate a rental knowing we wouldn’t be able to buy for a while (without receiving a lease commission). She was just all around kind and helpful. After Neely helped us find a house, Marie worked with us on all of the logistics. She handled our needs so well, understood what we could and couldn’t do, and made us feel like we came first... rather than the sale going through. It all moved so fast and Marie was so helpful with all of our questions and feelings of being slightly overwhelmed. We can’t say enough good things about Marie and Neely. They helped us find our home and facilitated everything without us ever having to ask. Their communication is as good as you’ll find and they make you feel comfortable and confident in your decisions. Their knowledge of the market and area is exactly what someone new to the area needs. We will absolutely call Neely and Marie for any real estate needs we may have in the future and would love to refer them should the situation arise.

I located to Asheville from California. During the process Neely kept me up to date on the listings that were available. She was very attentive & responded quickly via email & text messaging. I flew out & spent a week in search of a property. She had a schedule set up for me upon my arrival. Drove me to different areas so I could get a feel for the area I would like to live in & I bought a house that week. She was extremely helpful in my transition. She met the delivery of my personal items & cars at the property, had a supply of food in the fridge, etc. etc. I will definitely use them on my next purchase. She is a wonderful person to work with. I highly recommend Neely & Marie. My closing was done electronically & Neely provided me with all pertinent information needed to close. It went very smoothly.

I did not have the pleasure of working with Marie, but Neely was all and more that you could ever need in an agent. She was extremely helpful, kind, knowledgeable, and always reachable in times of need. She walked us through every step of buying our first home with grace, and my wife and I could not be happier with our experience working with Neely. If ever given the opportunity, I would work with no one else besides her. 11 out of 10 stars for her as she went above and beyond the scope of her job to ensure a smooth transaction for my family and I.

Neely Neu came highly recommended from a friend. We had been thinking of buying a house for awhile but as young first time home buyers we weren’t certain what we could afford and would have never considered Beverly Hanks because I had assumed they only worked with high end budgets. Neely met with us even before we had talked to a lender and answered a lot of questions and built our confidence to move forward with the process. The loan officer Neely recommended, Rachel Helton, was able to work with our busy schedules and answered any questions we had. Throughout the process we felt like we had a strong team of support behind us. Even though we had a lower budget, Neely and the rest of the staff at Beverly Hanks were attentive to our needs, flexible with our schedule, and so very helpful explaining all the steps of the process. I would definitely recommend Neely to anyone who is thinking about buying a home for the first time but unsure of what that all entails.

My house search in an unfamiliar area proved to have unique challenges. Thankfully Neely Neu and Marie Morris were available, even on weekends and evenings, to assist. Most of my interactions were with Neely and she made every extra effort in finding me the perfect house. She was available to show me properties, sometimes even the same day I expressed interest in them. If she wasn't available, Marie was there to step in. The knowledge Neely and Marie have of the area, inspectors, contractors, etc. is invaluable. Neely and Marie are very friendly, easy going yet very responsive to communications, and strive to find you the property you want, and get you the best deal possible. After closing Neely made a point to contact me if I had any questions or needed anything (e.g. contractor info); she really went above and beyond in the entire process. I strongly recommend Neely Neu and Marie Morris for all of your real estate needs!

Marie and Neely were the perfect agents for us. We loved this home to begin with so leaving was tough and then selling the property was challenging due to market conditions, deed restrictions and surrounding lot issues. The house was on the market far longer than we anticipated with several offers that fell through. The process was stressful and frustrating for us. I can't imagine any two agents handling the ups and downs of this sale with greater respect, professionalism and consideration. They stuck with us the whole way with continued support and consistent effort, going above and beyond, especially after the house was vacant and needed more attention. They never let up on marketing and networking. Most of all, they remained optimistic and positive even when we were not. It's nice to have good agents with any sale; Marie and Neely excelled with a difficult one. We are very very grateful to both Marie and Neely. Thank you!

We loved this home to begin with so leaving was tough and then selling the property was challenging due to market conditions, deed restrictions and surrounding lot issues. The house was on the market far longer than we anticipated with several offers that fell through. The process was stressful and frustrating for us. I can't imagine any two agents handling the ups and downs of this sale with greater respect, professionalism and consideration. They stuck with us the whole way with continued support and consistent effort, going above and beyond, especially after the house was vacant and needed more attention. They never let up on marketing and networking. Most of all, they remained optimistic and positive even when we were not. It's nice to have good agents with any sale; Marie and Neely excelled with a difficult one. We are very very grateful to both Marie and Neely. Thank you!

Neely Neu and Marie Morris are real pros who made our home buying process exponentially better through their solid communication and negotiation skills on top of a great attention to detail and follow through. All that, and they are very nice people you'd like for neighbors.

Marie and Neely were referred to me by a friend who was a previous client. They listened to what I was looking for and found some good choices to look at. Recognizing that I would be new to the Asheville area, they offered suggestions for areas I might like. They adjusted to my changing desires as my search parameters evolved until we eventually got to the point of the land purchase I made. I’m quite happy with how everything turned out and Marie and Neely were a big part of that.

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.
