Judy was interested in real estate for years but did not pursue a career because sales did not appeal to her. But as she was helping a family member look for a home in another state she discovered there were exclusive buyer’s agents. She felt she had discovered her new career, and when she learned about The Buyer’s Agent in Asheville she found her home. With The Buyer’s Agent since 2005, she has earned the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designations, as well as the e-PRO and ECO certification.
Moving to Asheville as a child, she grew up here, married a local, and raised her children. Now empty nesters, they parent two dogs, love visiting their grandchildren, and visiting nearby mountain towns, especially enjoying the frequent festivals.
Judy and her husband of three decades like to load up their camper and drive an hour or so into the mountains to camp, enjoying sitting by a fire listening to the sound of a lively creek. She also enjoys teaching Bible study at her church and volunteering as special events coordinator. She and her husband recently restored a 1929 bungalow that included green upgrades and a fun, functional kitchen, so she really understands clients that need a great kitchen.
“I take seriously the honor of being a part of someone’s life changing decisions. Facilitating my clients’ transaction from initial meeting to closing helps develop trust between me and my client as I don’t pass them off to someone else. My personal goal is to find the home that most captures the needs and wants criteria that they have given me, within budget, and at the same time makes them feel at home. As one client said to me, ‘it makes my heart sing!'”
What Judy’s Clients Say
We chose Judy to help us begin our search for a future retirement home in Asheville, NC. We traveled to Asheville on several occasions and each time, Judy was well prepared, pro-active and maintained an excellent schedule of appropriate homes to visit. Judy identified what we were looking for and met our expectations completely. In the final decision, we chose a home that Judy suggested we look at that was not even in our plans. By listening to us and taking the time to know us, she better understood the lifestyle we were looking for and helped us see many housing opportunities in Asheville. She was respectful of our time and went out of her way to work around our travel and time frame.
We really enjoyed working with you and appreciate all of your time, knowledge and friendship. You made it work.
Judy, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for all you have done for us. We love our house, and we’re making great memories in it. In fact, we just gave our little one her first bath!
