Father, husband, kayaker, coffee enthusiast, REALTOR®
I believe that my job is to help you navigate one of the most important decisions of your life. I spend time getting to know you and your preferences in order to better guide the sale or purchase of your greatest investment. You need an attentive, thoughtful, problem solver on your team through the entire process, and I’m excited to get started with you.
Through my work in real estate and with civic organizations, I have built an extensive community network that will be helpful to you in buying or selling your home. Whether you are searching for a home, relocating to the area, buying an investment property or second home, or looking to sell, I will work to make sure you have all the information you need throughout the transaction. I love Asheville and our mountain region and enjoy sharing my extensive knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, and local businesses with my clients as we work together.
In my years in business as a real estate broker and my prior service on city council and as Mayor, I gained an unique perspective on how to ensure a vibrant community through responsible land use planning and the fast-paced real estate market. Now, I serve on the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment, reviewing zoning-related requests, and the Affordable Housing Committee with the Association of REALTORS® exploring partnership opportunities and advancing the affordability conversation.
I specialize in achieving goals for first time buyers in this increasingly competitive market, cross country relocations, second home buyers, and investment property, sustainable building and GREEN homes, relocation of service members, and locating raw land that meets your future building goals. I have worked with buyers through conventional, construction, and rehabilitation loans and with FHA, USDA and VA loans. I focus on all Buncombe County neighborhoods and communities, specifically throughout downtown, West Asheville, North Asheville, Weaverville, Woodfin, Swannanoa, Oakley, Shiloh and others. I serve counties surrounding Buncombe regularly with special attention to Marshall, and Madison, Haywood and Henderson counties.
I live in Asheville with my wife, Marcie, and our daughter, Lillian, In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, paddling the river, hitting the trails, supporting our farmer's markets, and appreciate a good cup of coffee or three. I am a proud volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and the WNC Aids Project. I attended Appalachian State University, and am a member of the Land of the Sky Association of REALTORS® and the NC Mountains Multiple Listing Service.
I look forward to working with you. Let’s meet for coffee and get started.
