Elizabeth Akins – Broker/Consultant
We are excited to announce our new agent, Elizabeth Akins. Elizabeth comes to us after 10 successful years in real estate, bringing with her fresh ideas and solid experience. We look forward to what she will bring to our team.
Elizabeth is a true tarheel, born and raised in Eastern North Carolina. No stranger to the area, Elizabeth spent most childhood holidays and summers with her grandparents in Fairview. In 1985, she uprooted from Eastern North Carolina to make Western North Carolina home. Today, she lives in a contemporary county home that is built on a plot of land handed down by her family for over 100 years. This land was previously an apple orchard that supplied nearby Grove Park Inn and the Biltmore Estate with fresh produce, however she now enjoys the land for the stellar mountain views and the peaceful surroundings.
With 20+ years of experience as an Administrative Assistant and Administrative Manager in the insurance field, Elizabeth came to real estate prepared to deliver stellar customer service. Her administrative background imparted strong organizational skills, a mastery of compliant practices, and an eye for detail that make her a fierce ally during a real estate transaction. Elizabeth’s clients enjoy her warm personality and easy-going nature, often feeling like she bridges the gap between a licensed professional and a close friend. With a mix of her experience, her personality, and the genuine obsession with helping clients meet their financial goals, we are excited to witness what she brings to the team.
Testimonials from Past Clients
“Elizabeth was amazing when it came to helping me buy my first home! She sat down with me over lunch and we discussed which area I wanted to live as well as my preference in houses. Either a town home, single family home or condo. Elizabeth kept in close contact the whole time and as soon as a listing she thought would be good we went to visit. After buying my first home over a year ago any time I reach out to Elizabeth she is there to help which is so wonderful. I am forever grateful for her help.” – Erin C.
“Elizabeth helped my husband and I sell our home (in Asheville) and purchase a new home (in Waynesville) in 2017. Our home was under contract within 48 hours! She is such a pleasure to work with! She kept us updated in real time at all times and made, what can be, a stressful process fun and seamless. She is very knowledgeable about the market trends in WNC and works hard to ensure that her clients are taken care of. I highly recommend her for any and all of your real estate needs!” – A. Cagle
