I landed in Asheville in 1988 after living in over twenty-five houses in eighteen cities in four countries. Asheville captures all that I loved about those places and so I’ve stayed here. 

 

When I moved to Asheville you could drive through downtown and not pass another car on what are now our very busy streets.  In the early 1990’s I opened Preservation Hall Architectural Salvage and rescued the doors and windows, wood floors and fixtures from all the buildings and homes being restored, saving them until they could be put back into use again.  It’s fun walking around downtown today and seeing all those things still being loved.

 

I’ve restored a number of buildings.  I learned to look beyond the present manifestation of a property to see the potential that’s hidden within.  I’ve learned a lot from taking buildings down to their bones and putting them back together again.  My strong passion for energy efficiency, renewables and permaculture can be seen on my own little paradise, where 27 solar panels, a geothermal HVAC and gardens galore help us meet our energy goals.

 

Because of all these projects, I’m as comfortable with a hammer and a saw as I am with a closing statement. I have learned first-hand the joys and challenges of buying and selling property in NC.

 

Serving eight years on the Woodfin Water District Board and the Asheville City Council taught me a lot about this town.   Conserving and protecting our environment, strengthening our social fabric and encouraging sound economic investments are the legacy of my years of service. 

 

These well earned skills and insights are my real estate clients, helping them think through their own personal values that shape their decisions and finding them properties that uphold those values.

 

I could tell you about all the things I’ve done over the last thirty years here in Asheville; my wonderful family, a Master’s Degree in Climate and Society, all the fun I had as the bass player for the Buckerettes, the blood, sweat and tears behind putting together the Collider, but that’s more than you want to know right now.  I’ll be happy to share those stories and more with you as we get to know one another better.

 

Together let’s help build a healthy sustainable community here in Asheville ….one home at a time.
