the story of broker asheville

In 2008, Jeff and Leah Stewart asked themselves over coffee at The Dripolator (a local coffee shop), “What would happen if we developed a real estate business model based on the idea of building relationships rather then cold calls or advertising?”  As it turns out, it’s that very attention to the “people” that works!
Right from the start, Jeff and Leah agreed on one thing. The Broker Asheville team would deliver service that exceeds client expectations. Their administrative team vets local vendors including home contractors, accountants, designers, and real estate experts to make every transaction simple. And all clients receive detailed handbook outlining steps for buying and selling.
As a Western North Carolina native, Jeff Stewart brings a distinctly Asheville perspective to home buying and selling. His team’s extensive knowledge of the area matches buyers with their perfect neighborhood and empowers sellers to make smart decisions based on local trends and experience.
Since that conversation at the coffee shop Broker Asheville has exceeded all their own expectations. Last year, the Broker Asheville team was the #1 producing team in Buncombe County. In 2015, over 170 families will buy or sell through Broker Asheville and they couldn’t be more thankful to their friends and families for always keeping them in mind.
Investing in the local community is another key element of the Broker Asheville business model. The team is passionate about making Western North Carolina great through the promotion of active and healthy lifestyles. Broker Asheville sponsors the 5 Point Film Festival featuring outdoor adventure films, the Book Walter Binge bicycle race and fundraiser, and the Asheville Design Center a local nonprofit invested in building healthy, equitable, and thriving communities, the Asheville chapter of Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville’s
But it’s not just experience and community mindedness that make Broker Asheville stand apart. Jeff and Leah’s vision is vividly reflected in the daily working style of the team. You can feel it when you walk into the Broker Asheville office. This is a team that is invested in more than buying and selling homes. The Broker Asheville team empowers clients to make good real estate decisions. Clients become friends. Not surprisingly, 80% of Broker Asheville clientele find the team through the recommendation of a friend or family member.

In essence, buyers working with Broker Asheville don’t simply purchase a home; they “Become a Local”.
