About Me

Having been a native of Asheville and then moving away for 10 years, I have gained a unique perspective on my love for this wonderful place. As much as I treasured my time in Minnesota Lake Country, I always had a yearning to return to my roots in Asheville. I feel so fortunate to have spent the last 30 plus years in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.

My wife, Karma, and I have seen many changes over the years here and I feel these changes have only enhanced the appeal of this area to so many who come here. We routinely enjoy hiking and biking the vast array of trails, occasionally taking in a round of golf and love taking our boat out on the beautiful mountain lakes of WNC and upstate of SC.

One will often catch us eating dinner out at one of the many cafes in downtown Asheville or Main Street Hendersonville. We never tire of taking Sunday afternoon drives to Lake Lure or up the mountain to Pisgah Forest.

My family's involvement in our local church and my participation in various non-profit groups such as Eblen Charities, Lewis Rathbun Wellness Center (board member) and Downtown Asheville Rotary demonstrate the commitment and dedication I have to our community.

Experience

The last 10 years, I have gained an immeasurable amount of experience and knowledge in the real estate arena. I have treasured the many relationships developed over this time and I am truly passionate about helping people through the real estate process. The decision to join the Beverly-Hanks family was an easy one for me. My development and maturation to be one of the top performing agents in WNC has been possible through my association with the top performing real estate firm in WNC.

Prior to my career in Real Estate, I spent many years in the financial services industry. I have over 20 years of experience in insurance/financial services and retail/business banking. Through this experience, I have developed a thorough understanding of how to help people with some of the most important financial decisions of their lives.

I have particularly enjoyed the personal and business relationships I have developed over the years in my career here in the Western North Carolina area. Strong relationships are key in this business and I am eager to continue to provide top level personal service for my clients and establish lifelong friendships through the process.

You can be assured that I will guide you through the sale of your home or the purchase of a new one with a deep understanding of this community, a commitment to excellent service and the extensive experience of helping folks with major financial decisions.

Testimonials

We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us navigate the home buying experience. Friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and professional are just a few words to describe Steve! He truly goes above and beyond.

We returned to the USA after working for the DoD overseas for 30 years. We had many questions about 'living in America' as well as how to purchase our first house in America. Steve Crouch was patient and kind and walked us through every step of the process. Can't fault Steve on any item. First class from start to finish....and he continues to answer our questions and provide suggestions and recommendations. We are extremely pleased that Steve was recommended to us by a friend.

Steve was extremely knowledgeable about different areas in the region, prices, the current state of the market, and the buying process. The market made it difficult to find our perfect house, but Steve was patient with both us and the process. He was determined to find us what we wanted without having to give up aspects that were important to us (i.e. location and house type). We can't say enough about Steve's professionalism, approachability, and friendliness. He was just a delight to work with, and at the end, we truly felt like we had made a friend. He made us feel like we were the most important clients, even though I know he makes everyone feel that way. I would recommend Steve to anyone looking for houses in WNC. We are so happy with our experience with Steve and Beverly Hanks. Thank you for making this process as smooth as it could possibly be during a chaotic time in the housing market. We are thrilled with our new home, and truly believe we wouldn't have found it without Steve's help.

Our agent Steve Crouch was phenomenal every step of the way. He helped us with our move, which was done at a distance (moving from Illinois to the Asheville, NC area) during the pandemic, and he went above and beyond, touring the houses, giving us his honest opinion about the places, doing video tours, etc. Once he got a feel for what we were looking for, he helped us find the perfect house.

I was expecting it to take longer than 8 weeks knowing how slow everything was selling but Steve Crouch set a good price at the beginning.

Steve Crouch was an a joy to work with. He was ambitious in finding us the home we wanted, and kept looking even when we were "taking time off".

No one knows all the answers all the time. I would recommend to anyone to work with Steve when buying or selling a home.

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.
