How important are single women buyers to the real estate market?

Women drive the lion’s share of home buying decisions. Although women account for 85% of all purchases, according to a study completed by Yankelovich Monitor & Greenfield, women drive 91% of new home decisions. When marketing homes, we should pay attention to what matters most to women. Redfin interviewed 1,000 Americans for their preferences when buying a home and then segmented their responses by gender. Highlights: being close to good schools is 6.6% more important to women than men, the number of bedrooms was 6.7% more important to women than men, and the estimated resale value was 3.6% more important to women than men. In fact the only item more important to men than women was the amount of exterior maintenance.

Our home hunting experience was quick and easy due in part to the dedication shown by RIchard Smith. His knowledge and willingness to be available made the process relatively simple and event free. We had very limited time to visit and identify a property of interest. Richard planned our visit and showed us an array of properties that reflected our interests.... and in just a few days we were under contract! We have purchased and sold several properties but we have never had the pleasure of working with someone as professional and helpful as Richard Smith. Thank you for your dedication and professionalism!

We have worked with Richard on both the seller and buyer side of residential properties in Buncombe County. In each case, the market knowledge and negotiation skills Richard brought to the table were invaluable to the transaction. Richard delivered results that met our needs concerning the key points of lifestyle and profitability. His genuine care for people is icing on the cake.

Richard Smith was exemplary during the sale of my property. He came to my home prepared on the first visit with everything we needed to get the property on the market; including prices from around my area! He was always polite, honest, and had my best interest in mind. Richard was constantly in contact with me, I always knew what to expect. I definitely would give Richard Smith the highest recommendations!

The overall experience selling my home was very positive. I would definitely use Richard again to buy or sale my home. His attention to detail was very important to me. His professionalism and friendliness also added so much to the whole experience. I never had to ask questions, he kept me informed and guided me through every step. I would highly recommend him and Beverly-Hanks to anyone looking to buy or sale a home.

Our agent, Richard Smith, went beyond "the call of duty" in every way possible. He anticipated our needs and providing guidance which was extremely helpful given we live out of town. Richard is one of the nicest agents we have ever met and apparently one of the best in that he had our house "under contract" in less than a week. That was amazing given it was Christmas time! If you want a kind professional who is results oriented, Richard Smith will not disappoint!

Richard Smith came highly recommended by my suburban Philadelphia friend and professional associate who had worked with Richard eight years ago and was totally impressed with him as an agent. From our first encounter with Richard Smith, we were equally impressed with his hospitable manner, his immediate grasp of and responsiveness to the dynamics of our needs, his professional attention to detail, his unfailing integrity and honesty about both the positives, and negatives, of each property, his untiring patience and diligent pursuit of finding us our "exact-right" home, as well as, his warm personableness and gentle charm. In the two separate weeks we traveled to Asheville to see properties, Richard truly provided us unrestricted access to him. Upon recognizing that we could only devote a finite numbers of days each time we had traveled here, Richard indulged us with an exhausting pursuit of property showings which involved inordinately long days for him. In addition to all the above attributes we experienced with Richard, we found Richard to be a keen financial agent, as well, helpfully advising us on maximizing our offer on our final property choice so that it would be the most acceptable offer to the Sellers, while keeping our monetary offer to a realistic figure for our finances. We unconditionally recommend Richard Smith as a stellar agent and as a gentleman-professional.

Beverly-Hanks is extremely fortunate to have Richard Smith as a representative for their company. Everyone who has knowledge of my purchasing this property has also been advised to utilize his professional skills by me. I'm hoping that my four cousins that have their eyes on the Asheville area will also consider his skill set and find themselves under the demeanor of a gentleman who is more than capable.

Richard Smith of the Beverly-Hank Downtown Office was very accessible to answer our questions, address concerns, and prompt with all contract documents. He was consistent in reminding us of our next steps, contractual obligations/deadlines, and making sure the property was available for inspections as needed. As a native of South Asheville, Richard was well versed in the market and guided us well through our search process.

This has truly been a great experience buying my first home. Richard Smith was meticulous and patient every step of the way. From answering my questions, to guidance, I found his knowledge invaluable. He really got to know me and got a sense of what I was looking for in a new home. I truly appreciate that he made me feel like a priority. Always quick to respond to emails and always a phone call away, Richard was there to help clarify every aspect of the buying process. He helped to educate me and make me feel comfortable with this new purchase and he brought a wealth of knowledge to the table. He is client focused and always had my best interest at heart. Richard left a very positive impression on me. I would recommend Richard to everyone looking to buy/sell a home in the Asheville area.

Richard Smith provided us with exceptional service in the sale of our home. We were most impressed with his practical, common sense approach throughout this process, as well as his knowledge of the real estate market. His marketing tools made our listing stand out in the crowd. He also provided invaluable information and recommendations during the renovation of our home which helped us maximize our return on investment. I would strongly recommend Richard to anyone interested in buying/selling real estate in the area.

Richard Smith went above and beyond what we have experienced in the past from other real estate agents/brokers. He was there every step of the way from finding the house to the closing. And if we ever had questions he would respond quickly to any text, email or phone call. We would certainly use him again with a local house search.

We didn't exactly "choose" Richard as our broker when we initially began looking to buy a home. I called the office initially about mortgage assistance. I was asked if I had a real estate agent, and when I advised them that I did not, our case was given to Richard. I guess it was just sort of "how it went" as far as us actually working with Richard. I, for one, am glad that things worked out as they did. Richard was exceptional with communications, always took time to answer questions, and genuinely cared about our interests during the entire process. He had extensive knowledge of the entire process and was also a great guy to work with on both the personal and professional level. I think sometimes things happen for a reason - and in this case, I think it was time for us to buy our first home. Richard was a God-send and really helped make the whole thing happen. It was fantastic working with Mr. Smith and I'll definitely be recommending him to anyone I know that needs a real-estate agent in the future.

We were very satisfied with our real estate transaction as Richard did an excellent job, going above and beyond in assisting us.  We found him to be top notch, very professional, friendly, and informative.   This is our second transaction with Richard, as he assisted us with the purchase of our home initially.  We wouldn't think of using any other agent when we decided to sell and relocate recently.  The result was amazing;  we had an acceptable offer in the first 24 hours, and closed in just 30 days after listing it. 

Billy and Collyn Gillespie

We met Richard at his Sunday Open House and were highly impressed.  We decided then we wanted him to be our buyers agent.  He was very professional, really listened to us, and went above and beyond.  He sincerely cared about our thoughts and opinions.   We have already recommended him to multiple clients and will continue to do so.  He is an asset to Beverly-Hanks, who should be proud to have him on their team.   We will always come back to Beverly-Hanks for any service solely based on how wonderful Richard was.   

Robi and Rhalina Eckley

I am a previous client of Richard's as he sold my prior home in just two months which was a real accomplishment in this market.  Besides being very professional and friendly, he is very consistent in paying close attention to every detail.   Richard was a dual agent in my recent purchase as I bought a new home that was his listing.  He was very thorough and made me feel comfortable.  The Beverly-Hanks organization was also very professional, leaving me feeling very satisfied.

Paul Anderson

We knew finding a home would be a real challenge while living in Montana and having to do our searching long distance.  The Beverly-Hanks website was extremely helpful, along with Richard being so friendly and professional and knowing all the areas.   Richard not only helped find the perfect place for us, our 2 year old daughter and lab, we got a great deal and were able to move in after less than a week from arriving in Asheville. 

Stephen and Virginia Tyree

Beverly-Hanks and Associates was referred to us while visiting in Asheville.  Richard happened to be the on-duty agent when we walked in.  He got us off to a great start and helped out in a pinch since we only had a short time before having to return home to New York.  He was a perfect match for us.  Our process proved to be a real task, but Richard stayed very calm and put his knowledge to work for us.  Everyone should have such a good experience!  Hang onto him! 

Bill and Margaret Kirk

We have used Richard on three occasions.  He sold our last two homes, and helped us buy this one.  He is really on the ball, especially when selling our last home AND buying the new one, walking us through being in multiple offer situations on each.  Richard always does an excellent job, and Beverly-Hanks is great!  

Jason and Jayme Ray

I was referred to Richard Smith by a local friend when my Dad passed away.  He more than lived up to his recommendation and exceeded every expectation.  Living in California, I had to rely on him for everything.  All the while with him navigating me through a difficult market season.  I was delighted that I never had to make a trip to Asheville during the whole process.  I was very pleased with the professionalism and competence of Richard and his staff. 

James Robbins

As a builder, I have used Richard Smith and Beverly-Hanks as my exclusive listing agent and firm since 2006.  I used several small local real estate companies in the past and was referred to Richard through my banker.  I have found the  Beverly-Hanks organization to have all the tools necessary for the best marketing along with the best network of agents I have come across.  Richard is also the hardest working, most consistent real estate agent I have ever worked with, bar none.

Bill Stewart, Builder/Developer

We found Richard's expertise, professionalism, and knowledge to be exceptional.   Thanks to his research and realistic advice, we were able to sell our condo in just 3 months, and for more money than we had hoped for.  He is personable and friendly which made us feel really comfortable and confident from day one.  We highy recommend Richard and Beverly-Hanks to anyone buying or selling a home.

Derrick and Julia Meeks

Richard Smith is an excellent realtor--very professional, and pays great attention to detail.  He is also very thorough in explaining everything a client needs to know when buying or selling.  Richard is very pleasant, returns calls promptly, and is easy to talk to.  I would very definitely give him my next listing and will continue to forward all my referrals to him. 

Linda Parker and Richard Moorer

Richard did an excellent job and was very professional in helping us get the most for our home.  He performed a Current Market Analysis upfront, which we used as our guideline in determining a realistic list price for our home.  As a result, we attracted multiple showings and an acceptable offer, all within just 5 weeks.  This allowed us to prepare well ahead of time for moving out of state.   Richard was also instrumental in us using Beverly-Hanks Relocation Services, who connected us with a local realtor to assist with the purchase of our new home in Arizona.     

Steve and Clara Coryell

We initially met Richard 3 years before retiring, during our initial visit to Asheville.  He stayed in regular contact on-going, and was there for us when our serious searching began.  He really listened to our long list of preferences and "must haves", ultimately leading us to our dream home.  We found Richard to be a seasoned negotiator, and above all, very patient and professional. We also experienced the same excellence and professionalism throughout Beverly-Hanks. We highly recommend Richard and firm to anyone seeking real estate services in the Asheville area.
