Contact Richard
As a rare Asheville native and with more than 20 years of real estate experience working for some of the top
companies in the country, I will provide you with the most detailed insights into the local real estate market.
At your side, I will develop the most innovative and complete marketing program to help sell your home
quickly and with the highest yield possible. If you're buying a home in the area, you will work closely with my business partner, Beth, who is our buyer's specialist, to locate the perfect home in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina!

I also bring to your listing more than 25 years experience in the luxury hospitality field. I have worked for the
top names in the industry, including Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Intercontinental Hotels, and Westin
Hotels and Resorts. In 2010 after 18 years in Atlanta, I moved back to Western North Carolina to become the sales director for the luxury condominiums at 60 North Market Street in downtown Asheville.

About Me
I was born and raised in Asheville, NC but my early career in luxury hospitality took me to locations around
the world. I lived in Switzerland for two years while completing my Masters in Hospitality Administration.
However, in 2000 I received a unique opportunity to move into the field of real estate and the rest is history!
Now, I have made this amazing city my home base for many years to cometruly a full circle life experience!
When Im not working with a client on their home listing or helping a buyer locate the perfect home, you can find me singing with the Asheville
Symphony Chorus. I am also an active member of the First Congregational Church in downtown Asheville and volunteer with Manna Food Bank and Downtown Asheville Association.

I look forward to working for you, your friends, and your family as well - now and for many years to come!
