Born and raised in the shadows of Grandfather Mountain in beautiful Western North Carolina, I grew up in Avery county, the Christmas tree capital of the world. I attended UNC -Chapel Hill and graduated from Appalachian State University with my BSBA degree with a concentration in accounting. My accounting career began in 1988 and I obtained my Certified Public Accountant certification in 1991. I have owned CPA firms in Madison, Buncombe and Avery counties, been a partner in firms in Newland, NC and Asheville, NC and I currently own a CPA firm in Mars Hill, NC. In addition to my CPA practice, I have been a partner in Triple C Nursery, a Christmas Tree farm located in Avery County, NC, for the last 30 years. My family and I have lived in Mars Hill for 22+ years.
I am confident that my financial experience, farm experience and my familiarity with our mountain geography, as well as the local culture, will enable me to offer you a specialized real estate experience. Together we can explore the residential and commercial possibilities offered, whether it is our mountains, trout streams, foothills or urban communities that interest you. From the cultural buzz of downtown Asheville, to the quaint small-town vibe of places like Weaverville, Hendersonville and Mars Hill; from the majestic views of Madison County to the Christmas tree-covered mountainsides of Avery County or to the peaceful retreat of the shores of Lake James; whether you are looking for a secluded cabin or exclusive gated living, I am ready to assist you in your search. I believe in extending our mountain values of honesty, integrity and hospitality into my business relationships. I believe my accounting and financial experience will help to ensure a smooth and low stress buying or selling experience. I look forward to working with you to find a property that will become the foundation of your future here in Western North Carolina.
