About Us

Who We Are

Artisan Properties is an Asheville NC Real Estate agency that was founded in 2001 out of a desire to be able to provide very personalized services to both buyers and sellers of real estate in the Asheville, NC area, which we found is much easier in an independent, privately-owned real estate agency.  What also sets us apart from our competition is our creativity.  Having years of experience in interior decorating and design as well as working directly with builders and rehabbing several houses on our own allows us to see the possibilities, whether we are staging a house for sale or assisting a buyer with finding a great deal.  Additionally, we continually look for creative solutions for our clients with all parties in mind.  We love the art of the deal!

“Artisan” was chosen as the company name to honor the craftsmen who hand-built Asheville with quality, character and charm…from the first cabins to the stately Biltmore Estate. We admire the legacy that quality leaves for generations and it’s what we look for when assisting buyers. Having bought and restored historic homes as well as new custom homes, we have a keen eye toward the best quality that can be bought in any price range. We believe that we make money for our clients when we assist them in buying right in the first place.

What We Do

It is important to work with a real estate agency that understands the Asheville, NC area and the current market.  We have helped many buyers and sellers find and sell homes in different areas and under varying market conditions.  We provide a variety of services, constantly looking for creative ways to meet our clients needs during every transaction.  Some of our services include:

  • Single-Family – From condos to luxury homes.

  • Multi-Family – For investors, large families, as well as groups looking to share housing, age-in-place or find naturally-occurring residential communities (NORCs).

  • Estates – Full service for those who want to take the family heirlooms and have us handle the rest.  We have developed good relationships with appraisers and dealers in this area to provide sellers the value of their items and sell and/or donate the rest, all while preparing their homes for market.  We can provide a turnkey solution to handle what the family requests.

  • Investment Properties – We are constantly on the lookout for rehabs, and undervalued property for investors.  We love to find the good deal.  Sometimes the best are where no one else is looking…yet.

  • 1031 Tax Exchange – With recent tax changes on rental properties, we believe we are going to see more property exchanges again, which is an area that we have developed experience.

  • Land – We love exploring Western North Carolina and scouting out great home sites and views for our clients.  Winter is a great time to see how land opens up all kinds of views.
