I’m Ann Harold, Broker/Owner of French Broad Real Estate Company, looking forward to serving all your real estate needs in Madison, Buncombe and surrounding counties in Western North Carolina including the City of Asheville.
Over seventeen 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. Ultimately I found I couldn’t continue to just come to Asheville 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 first purchased a sweet cabin in Asheville then made the move the Madison County never looking back.
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 and water sports on the beautiful 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. French Broad Real Estate Company began in Hot Springs back in 2009 and since has moved to a more central location in Marshall right on the 2570 Bypass across from Madison County High School. You can’t miss us!
I opened the first office of French Broad Real Estate Company in 2009 as a boutique, single broker, MLS® office, and have since added several 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. We are passionate about where we live and what we do and love to share our enthusiasm with our clients.
I come by real estate naturally as I grew up in the business; now a third generation Realtor, licensed since 1989 in Georgia. I began my professional career as a sales assistant in the financial securities field ending up at EF Hutton, moved to property management, spending two years as executive director in the rental division of a large real estate company before moving into real estate sales, where I worked at ReMax for over 14 years. This background has provided the solid training to furnish each client with the services they need.
My business motto:
By listening carefully to fully understand my client’s objectives, I am able to utilize my knowledge, experience and skills to help them achieve their real estate goals. I pride myself on providing superior service, steadfast professional integrity and a commitment to getting-the-job-done.
Ann is amazing. We love our new house! Thanks for making the home buying experience a positive one.
I have know Ann Harold over 7 years. She has listed and sold land for me in the most difficult of times for the Marshall Marketplace. I admire her honesty and her willingness to do whatever it takes to ethically make a transaction happen. I have seen here work with other real estate professionals who were less than what Ann represents. Even during those times. she goes beyond what is required. I would use French Broad Real Estate again.
My wife and I began looking for property in Madison County several years ago. Since we live out of state we relied heavily on Ann for her expert knowledge of the county and her willingness to put on her boots and “go take a look”. Armed with the knowledge of the type of property that we desired, she would routinely forward listings to us for our online review. If it passed muster, she would hike the property with her dog and camera and provide us with wonderful feedback and video. In this manner, we found our dream farm. Again, being out of state buyers, she was right there for us from the initial offer to the closing, taking care of every detail. We now have woods to hike in, pastures for grazing, and barns for livestock. My family and I could not be happier with our land and with our realtor, Ann Harold.
