Our Agents

Over fifteen years ago, I began visiting Western North Carolina with my family. We fell in love with the area and decided to purchase a second home here. At that time I was a Realtor® with a thriving referral based business in intown Atlanta. Several years ago, I found I couldn’t continue to just come to WNC for brief visits and felt I was finally able to step back and transition from the metropolitan Atlanta lifestyle. After visiting Asheville for many years, I knew this was my home and landed in Madison County.

I have three children, two dogs, keep bees and have been known to have chickens from time to time: I have one daughter in Atlanta, the other daughter and son live with me here in Madison County. We enjoy the amazing opportunities this area has to offer including: hiking, skiing, water sports on the French Broad River, to highlight a few. I have a thirteen acre farm in the Revere Community of Marshall where we live in a beautiful yurt and enjoy growing a big vegetable and flower garden in the summer that supplies much of our produce for the cooking and canning which we now have time to indulge. I also have a historic home in the heart of Hot Springs that was part of the Dorland-Bell School For Girls now known as Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa. The office of French Broad Real Estate Company is located in this home at 29 Walnut Street, directly across from the only gas station in town.

I opened the office of French Broad Real Estate Company in 2009 as a boutique, single broker, MLS® office, and have since added three other brokers. Our team can provide you with complete focus and in-depth knowledge of Marshall, Hot Springs, Mars Hill as well as Asheville and the surrounding areas. While our office is located Madison, we do list and sell property in Buncombe County too. In fact, Rebecca Rice lives and works in Asheville and has an in-depth knowledge of the City of Asheville and surrounding communities. I also sell in Asheville.
