About Me

Broker Associate


            What makes a Realtor worthy of your trust?  Real estate education?  Professional representation? Knowledge of our real estate market?  These attributes are important, but in addition, the most important attribute for our agents at Appalachian Realty is to be sensitive and become attuned to your specific needs.  This simple one on one focus allows us to make your whole experience of selling and buying real estate pleasant and productive.  That is our specialty, and why we have developed long term relationships with our clients, with a large portion of our new business being generated through referrals. 


Sharing this great town and the natural mountain beauty makes our responsibility as Realtors an exciting profession with our main mission being to educate buyers and sellers about real estate issues in western North Carolina.  We have the tools and knowledge to make the real estate process successful and enjoyable.  Our agents’ profile is as diverse and unique as is this great City of Asheville.  We are proud of that. 


 Personally, having worked with Appalachian Realty since 1984, I have developed a wide range of expertise ranging from marketing homes, commercial real estate, undeveloped land, and farms.  Through the years, I have earned the reputation as being one of the top land and farm specialists in our region.


            I have lived in the Asheville area since 1975 after graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond with a degree in Park Management.  My expertise beyond real estate includes historic restoration, building construction, trout farming, and shade tree wrenching.  Many of my activities outside of real estate take place in our great outdoor settings and revolves around mountain and road bicycling, running, snowboarding, and hiking.  Making western North Carolina my home is the best choice I ever made.  Let us help you make the right choice and earn your trust.  If I, or any of our real estate agents, can help guide you with your real estate needs, please contact us.

I tried a few realty companies before finally deciding to use Appalachian Realty. First, let me say that I'm so glad that I picked Appalachian Realty. They were absolutely what I needed. They worked perfectly with the budget, and in the end even I was surprised at how many options I had in the WNC area. I want to especially thank Bill Palas for helping me and my family. Thank you so much!
