How do I know how fast is fast?

With the current demands on residential internet, finding a home with high-speed internet has moved from a luxury to a necessity. With the home now serving workplace and educational needs, future-proofing a home’s bandwidth is a priority. Internet download speeds of 100 Mbps or higher are considered fast because they can handle multiple online activities for multiple users at once. Per the FCC, a broadband connection has a minimum download speed of 25 Mbps and a minimum upload speed of 3 Mbps. Cable and fiber-optic services are your best bet for fast internet speeds. Fiber-optic internet is less vulnerable than cable to slower speeds during peak usage times. If internet speed is important to you, be sure to ask for help. I can determine the internet services available in an area.

Shannon Watkins is by far the best real estate professional we've ever dealt with. She ran the extra mile for us. Our purchase came during the outbreak of Covid 19. Much of our process had to be done remotely. Shannon was a whiz. Always there to help. Always with the information we needed. She crawled into the attic for us. Explored the crawl space. Did measurements. Took photos and videos. Offered clear and complete advice at every stage. She's efficient, cheerful, knowledgeable and smart. She was also a terrific ambassador for the Asheville area. We can't imagine not keeping Shannon Watkins as a friend. She's a gem. Convenient location. Shannon helped also in the selection of a remodel contractor and several subcontractors. Being new to the area, this was extremely helpful to us. Top notch

As out-of-towners she made us feel welcome and comfortable. I would recommend Shannon Watkins because of her detailed knowledge of the area which helped us decide which area we would prefer. She was always cheerful and friendly no matter how many houses we requested to see, which was a lot.

Shannon was very efficient, she showed properties thar were within our budget, she did,research on all the properties and always had the answers to our questions. She was very helpful and recommended areas we would be most comfortable living. She understood my reluctance going from a large home to a small condo, but she assured me we would find one that would feel like a home not an apt. in a big complex. She was always,professional and understood our time constraints. She made herself available whenever we were free. Couldn't have had a better exparience from beginning to closing. She is a great, thoroughly professional agent! We are friends ofJan Davis, and we were working with her for sevreal months. She referred us to Shannon and assured us Shannon would do a good job for us, and, as usual, Jan was right. Couldn't have had a better experience! Our entire experience with Shannon was positive and ultimately rewarding in that we found a place we that met our needs within our budget!

Shannon Watkins was a joy to work with. Being 3 hours away, and trying to buy a house can be very difficult, but Shannon made us feel very comfortable. We trusted Shannon's judgement and knowledge of our wants so much, we actually put a bid on - and eventually purchased - a house we hadn't even seen in person.

Our sales experience was tedious and stressful because we purchased a short sale property. Shannon helped us through this difficult process and was always available to answer questions and provide guidance to us which was very important. The thing that stood out to us the most about Shannon was the way she ALWAYS fought for us and looked out for our best interest from beginning to end. She worked very hard to help us find what we were looking for and to make this deal happen. We are very grateful for everything she did for us and would highly recommend her to represent anyone buying or selling a house.
