My husband and I have lived in a lot of places. When we got the opportunity to choose where we wanted to live, we began our search in Arizona. We ended it in Western North Carolina . Why?

1. The weather. By the time you tire of the current season, it's time for it to change. What is constant? Sunshine!
2. The mountains--what a luxury to start each day with gorgeous views! 3. The tranquility of country life with shopping and cultural offerings reasonably close by.
4. As newcomers, we did not want to be treated like outsiders. There are many new residents here and that makes meeting and making local friends much easier. 5. And last but also important, we wanted to get value for our financial investment.***We found it all here in Western NC***I never forget that the process of selling and buying is both exciting and stressful. Remembering my own experiences, whether they were seamless or awful, helps me work hard to insure that my clients have a hassle-free

Sold a Single Family home in 2003 in Lake Lure, NC.

We were not having much luck with a local vacation property sale and then met Joelle, who not only sold our property, but has kept in touch for more than 8 years as we intend to buy again to retire in that area.

Her patience with our drawn out relocation process has been refreshing and is what keeps us focusing on that area - it truly is one of the most picturesque mountain regions on the entire east coast.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Lake Lure, NC.

What a great realtor. Very knowledgable about the area. I wasn't exactly sure of what I wanted and because she was a good listener, she was able to show me affordable properties that suited me best for the lifestyle I wanted when I retired. She continues to assist me with area information, contractor referrals, etc. even though my sale has been final for over 8 months. I would highly recommend her!  More Less

Bought a home in 2012 in Flat Rock Forest, Flat Rock, NC 28731.

Joelle worked with us for several months on finding a home. Her knowledge about the homes in her areas was extensive and thorough. As a buyer's agent, she guided us through different houses /developments and expertly commented on the positives and negatives of our house visits. Details were noticed and commented on which was very helpful to us. As an experienced agent, she listened to our wants and was able to guide us to a perfect fit. Emails and questions were answered promptly. Several times, she went beyond our questions with some research which turned out to be enlightening.

Her negotiation skills were outstanding, we were very pleased with our purchase on all levels.

We consider Joelle to be an outstanding real estate professional.
