My wife and I moved to Asheville from New York City in 2008 . The natural beauty, culture, vibrant neighborhoods and especially the sense of community brought us here. We  enjoy hiking The Blue Ridge Parkway and the local music scene.

 

I hold a Permaculture Design Certification which I have utilized to design my home garden. The project was featured along with several others in the 2017 West Asheville Garden Stroll (WAGS), an organization that hosts the annual tour of notable gardens, and provides seed money grants for local, preferably edible,beautification projects. I continue working with the organization as a volunteer.

 

I’m on the board of the East West Asheville Neighborhood Association (EWANA). That work crosses into issues of infrastructure, development, and zoning that affect all of us in the Asheville area.

 

I have worked  in in the Asheville real estate market for nearly ten years. Initially with the regional MLS, leading the team handling logistical and coordination support for all the Realtors in our region. I observed the patterns and rhythms of the sales side of the industry, effective management of showing schedules on the buyer and seller sides, and which listings inspired excitement.

 

Next, I was hired to develop a marketing and sales department  for a local company supplying services to contractors, home builders, and others. I am proud to have delivered several years of double-digit growth to that company. My home-builder and general contractor clients gave me a view into the expanding real estate market. I visited renovations,  infill projects, new  home subdivisions from modest to the highest end custom home projects in Buncombe, Henderson, Madison, and other surrounding counties regularly. I developed a strong knowledge of Asheville neighborhoods, and surrounding towns.

 

I am very happy to be at Town and Mountain, because it embodies the energy, uniqueness, and excitement of the Asheville area. I apply the same sense of determination, thoroughness, customer service, communication, and follow up in my real estate career. My experience as a homeowner, property investor, landlord, community representative and tireless advocate for my clients’ interests ensure that you will be in good hands.
