About Me

How fortunate I have been to live in many parts of the world and now to have settled in beautiful Asheville. I am now also most fortunate to be able to engage in my passion for real estate.

Born in New York, I grew up in Hamburg and Vienna. My exposure to the arts, history, architecture, and different cultures of Europe adds to my enjoyment of living in an area with diversity, natural resources, and creativity.

My mother has been fortunate enough to live in the Blue Ridge Mountains. That, and being an empty-nester of three children, prompted me and my chocolate lab (Blu) to leave Los Angeles for the quality of life that this area has to offer. I love the mountains, waterfalls, hiking, skiing, and all the wildlife the area encompasses. It is an exciting time to explore Asheville’s culinary, art, and music venues, and I hope to assist you in feeling at home in this beautiful and vibrant part of the world.

While in California, it was an honor to serve as a board member of the Los Angeles Air Cargo Association and to be able to volunteer my time to the community. My local interests are the Asheville Humane Society and volunteering at the women’s shelter.

Experience

Helping clients achieve their financial and life goals by being their trusted adviser has always been of utmost importance to me. It was a natural progression to change careers from banking to real estate.

Relocating to the East Coast from Europe, I received my B.A. at Rutgers University and lived both in New York City and New Jersey, commencing a successful career as a commercial banker with a leading international financial institution. My dedication to my clients, honesty, professionalism, communication, and integrity are traits that are always a priority in my life.

My previous work transferred me to Los Angeles, California, where I purchased my first home and discovered my passion for renovation. 20+ years of credit experience and financial underwriting skills have shown me the value of real estate as a wealth creator, a hedge against inflation, and the realization of a dream for a first-time home buyer.

It would be my privilege to assist you in achieving your goals, whether it’s your dream home or investment property. Throughout the process, understanding your needs, with attention to detail and individualized service, ensures a smooth and professional transaction. I have been blessed to have clients who are friends and friends who are clients.

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.
