Testimonials from Past Clients:
“My wife Vickie and I threw a dart at the Asheville area after 35 years of Seattle rain clouds and 2 years of S. Florida’s relentless heat and traffic.
Michele was quick to ascertain our preferences in neighborhood character and house style. Each day we were presented with a well organized tour of homes preceded by a power point depicting the location and amenities of the listings we were about to visit. Michele targeted the listings with precision, never wasting our time on substandard or out of budget properties. Equally important she is an engaging personality who made the effort orient us to the Asheville-Hendersonville-
“My partner and I worked with Michele to purchase our first home, in West Asheville. We were unfamiliar with the process, and Michele was our guiding light. She was proactive with communication and had all the answers we needed at her finger tips. While she was much more informed about the buying process than we were, she always prioritized our wants and needs. Her follow through was impeccable, and she advocated well for us to ensure that our needs were met while being highly collaborative with the sellers and their agent. Michele helped ensure a stress-free experience from start to finish. We highly recommend her!” – Liz W.
“My wife and I could not have been more happy with our agent, Michelle Gould. First let me say that from our first conversation, she listened to us carefully, hearing what home features were most important to us and being attentive to our budget. So there was little time wasted seeing houses we wouldn’t be interested in. Next, she was very patient. We are not from thie Asheville area, so the process of exploring all the possible neighborhoods took us about four months. Michelle was always enthusiastic about showing us potential homes and never expressed any frustration about how methodical we were being. Michelle was also very savvy, sharing her own perceptions about each home and her knowledge of the pros and cons of each neighborhood. When we found our dream home, she helped us negotiate a fair price with the builder. We used her suggestions for mortgage broker and attorney and the closing process could not have been smoother. Throughout this stressful four month process Michelle held our hands, so to speak, and could not have been a more wonderful advocate. Moreover, she made wonderful restaurant recommendations.” – Larry E.
