Broker, Broker in North Carolina (13 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Lake Lure, NC.
We are so thankful for having worked with D'Ann on our last purchase. It was not a simple transaction, yet she worked tirelessly throughout the process, keeping us well informed along the way. She is highly professional, personable and has the experience you want in a Realtor. We would recommend and work with her again without reservation. Thanks to D'Ann, we have a vacation property we love and can enjoy for years to come.
D'ann was a real pleasure to work with. I found her very patient and was able to knowledgeably answer all my questions. If she didn't know then she was able to quickly find out. I also appreciated that she was always in communication with me. Whether by email or phone, she always responded very quickly. D'ann helped both myself and my parents find a place and we would highly recommend her.
Dorothy Ford was very helpful in my process of dealing with my divorce and trying to buy a new home in Asheville NC. I had spent the last 65 years of my life living in northern CA. She was very patient and was an excellent listener as I rambled on about how divorce was affecting my life. When I flew down to Asheville to look at possible places to purchase, she was the consumate host and chauffeur. She answered all my questions about Asheville history and its social life. When we were driving to see places, she helped pass the time by telling me about her life and some of the problems that she had faced and overcome. I understood then why she had taken a personal interest in my life problems. She is the reason I was able to find my dream home and to get it. I have only bought 5 homes in my life, but she made it so easy. She is so good at getting to the heart of the matter, she helps her buyers find what they are really looking for. She told me that was her favorite part of her job. I haven,t known many real estate agents, but when comes ability and personal service I certainly would put her at the top of my list.
We enjoyed working with D'Ann, who is quite knowledgeable of the Asheville area. We were impressed with her responsiveness and we felt she understood our needs. She went the extra step to offer to get us additional information and pictures we needed on properties since we were from out of town. She followed up immediately when needed. We were able to find the right new home on one house hunting trip to Asheville. She is personable and warm, and easy to work with. We would highly recommend her to anyone else buying in the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $525K in Asheville, NC.
D'Ann has brokered two properties for us in Asheville. The first was an investment property with an eye towards ultimate retirement there. As we currently live in the lower Hudson Valley, it was important to work with somebody who could be flexible and communicate well electronically but who also clearly understood what we were looking for and optimized our time when we did make trips down for viewings. D'Ann did all this and more. Her extensive knowledge of of the area took us to properties throughout western Carolina, but in the end resulted in finding us a beautiful property at an excellent price right off Town Mountain Road just 3 miles from downtown Asheville. Throughout the search for the right property, D'Ann was always cheerful, energetic, understanding, helpful, and endlessly informative. I could not recommend her more highly.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Darien, GA.
In a modern world choked by unprofessional practices, D'Ann stands out as the gold standard that I wish we would all adheir to. Each time we went shopping for land with D'Ann she impressed us with how organized she was, with each listing in order of our travels that day. Each day she showed an improved understanding as to what we were looking for and our needs. Thanks D'Ann, John and Sue.
