About Me

As an Asheville native, Tracey has local knowledge in all of the diverse amenities our area offers and the evolution that WNC has undergone. She can help you make informed decisions when buying or selling real estate in Asheville, Candler, Fairview, Weaverville, Hendersonville, Mills River, Fletcher, Arden....basically any of the surrounding areas. In her 10 plus years with Beverly-Hanks, Tracey continues to be part of an elite group that has been recognized repeatedly as Residential Top Producer. Residential Sales Leader and Residential Listing Leader.

Tracey graduated from Enka High School and then Western Carolina University where she earned a BSBA with a concentration in marketing. After college, Tracey began her business career as an Admissions Representative at South College and went on to teach Marketing Education at Tuscola High School in the Haywood County school system. Her marketing background then led her to hold various sales and marketing positions in the WNC area. She uses this experience to help her clients navigate education decisions when relocating to this area.

In 2006, her husband's job transfer led them to spend a year in Hickory, NC, and while there she earned her NC real estate license and began her real estate career. Upon returning to Asheville, she was able to really focus on her real estate career, embracing the opportunity to share the Asheville story and lifestyle with others. Her husband owns his own building company, which has given her the additional ability to gain expertise in new construction and the value of renovations. Tracey is a savvy business person who builds strong personal connections with people. She is an authentic, socially conscious realtor who strives to make each transaction as seamless as possible for her clients.

As well as being a wife to her husband Tom, she is a mother to two beautiful boys. Family is very important to Tracey. She enjoys volunteering in the Henderson County schools where her sons attend. She lives in a small community with wonderful neighbors and friends and most days you will find her outside with her family and Boykin Spaniel, Bo. She grows her own vegetables for her family and enjoys tending to her landscaping in the yard. Tracey can be found cheering on the sidelines of the lacrosse games whenever her sons are playing.

She enjoys traveling in her free time and especially camping at Lake James. Tracey is also a Certified Yoga Teacher and has taught yoga in WNC. However, entertaining and celebrating everyday life with friends and family is her favorite pastime.

Testimonials

She would go out of her way to help with the sale of the property. Very knowledgeable of the area. We have worked with Tracey earlier on the purchase of this house and were very impressed with her. She is a very professional agent. Tracey came across as having a crystal ball in terms of what the buyer was willing to pay for the property. She was "right on"!

Tracey has been a great representative for us during the entire process. She continually went above and beyond to ensure our home buying experience went seamlessly. This was an incredible stress reliever as we were buying a home virtually during a global pandemic from across the country. Tracey helped us at every step of the way. And when we had questions, she got us answers immediately. Again, Tracey was the consummate professional through the entire process. We are thankful to have worked with such a knowledgeable and conscientious real estate agent.

From start to finish, Tracey was absolutely spectacular. We couldn't say enough about Tracey's performance throughout the process. We relocated to Michigan and were out of town for most of the process. She was especially helpful finding and coordinating with various contractors (pre and post sale) get the house ready for sale/closing. Multiple times, we joked about Tracey moving to Michigan in order to help us find our next house!

In the sale of lot 4 Tracey had to overcome many obstacles during the contract and final sale of the lot. She was able to handle and overcome these obstacles when most of us involved in the sale thought it would not close.

I've now worked with Tracey as a Buyer and a Seller, and both experiences were wonderful. I worked with Tracey first as a Buyer and her work ethic was so strong, and personality wonderful, that when I decided to list my house I didn't even consider using another Agent. I called Tracey and she made the stressful process as easy as it could be! I would definitely work with Tracey again as a Buyer or a Seller and will continue to recommend her to friends and family! Thanks Tracey!

It was a great experience working with Tracey Rich while selling our home.Tracey was professional and helped us get our home looking great to attract buyers quickly. We had an offer in less than a week that turned into the buyer. She was informative throughout the process but never pushed us to make decisions that we were not comfortable with. We would definately suggest Tracey Rich to anyone in the market to sell their home.

After several months of an unsuccessful listing with another realtor at another real estate agency, Tracey was able to turn the property around so to speak and get the showings we wanted. We closed in 3/4 weeks and it was amazing. We kick ourselves for not calling her sooner. She is fantastic and is THE best Realtor in Asheville.

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.
