Every real estate agent has some sales they remember more than
others. Each one is special in its own way. These are a few memorable
sales that I was involved in
A few years ago I was asked to market a 181 acre property with a log home and a lodge on Sugar
Creek Road in Weaverville.  I was honored to be asked to market such a beautiful place. This property
sold me on the idea that each property needs its own website. The new owner was found exclusively  
through the website SugarCreekRoad.com that I set up and developed.  The following year I sold the
neighboring 133 acre estate to the same buyer.  These single property websites are a must have
when marketing any residential home or large acreage tract
SOLD:  $1,100,000
Weaverville, NC
Who doesn't love a home with a history? Many years ago a friend of mine introduced me to Mr. Anders,
the son in law of
Lillian Exum Clement Stafford. Lillian was the first woman in the south to be elected to the
State Legislature.  Mr Anders had resided in this North Asheville home since marrying Lillian's only
daughter, Nancy. Now in his 90's, Mr Anders asked me to market this special home for him. It was built in
1914 by Lillian's father and has been in the family until its sale in 2014. The house was in need of
everything from a heating system to a new kitchen and bathrooms. Every ounce of the home needed
attention and needed a special buyer to do it right. With my marketing and endless conversations with
potential buyers, the right person was found to take on this project. The home has been lovingly restored
and will now be enjoyed for generations to come.
SOLD:  $150,000
North Asheville
I can't really say there was anything special about this sale, except for the need for better photos. I was the third Realtor
asked to market this Weaverville home. The first agent had it priced too high. The second agent had it priced right but his
photos were lackluster. I spent several hours photographing both the interior and exterior of this home then countless
more hours sorting through photos and adjusting as needed to get them just right. The photo above was well lit and better
framed than what the previous agents had used. Instead of showing just lawn, I inset a photo of the beautiful view. This is
the first photo that everyone sees, I wanted to make it pop. It certainly did. I had multiple showings and a contract on the
home with in a few weeks.
SOLD:  $220,000
Weaverville, NC
I sold this 25 acre tract on Frank Rector Road many years ago. This one truly was memorable. It has level land at the top of
the property and then travels steeply downhill to the French Broad River. There was a large loop you could hike to see all
aspects of the property but it took at least an hour and you had to know the trail. I tried to accompany all showings so that I
could give a guided tour. My golden retriever and I once hiked it four times in one afternoon! To help with showings I
decided to mark the trails. I made multiple copies of the survey, drew the hiking trail on them and then had them laminated. I
placed "You are Here" stars along the map and attached the surveys to trees along the path. I still tried to accompany every
showing but at least it could now be shown without my assistance if we had a scheduling conflict. One Buyers Agent
commented that it was like touring a State Park!
SOLD:  $210,000
Marshall, NC
Whether I am marketing a one acre lot or a million dollar estate, I give
every property the same attention. I love my work and I enjoy the
challenge that comes with marketing, contracting and closing on a sale.

Dear Susan,
How does "Thank You" sound? I keep trying to think of something
witty to say but fail.
Back in September I made a very good decision in deciding that I
wanted you for my agent. In every instance, Susan, I felt comfortably
confident in your descriptions and suggestions - it all came down to
your wisdom.
I wish you well in this chosen career that is different every day.

Sincerely, Kaye Bergwin

your research that you put into every email you send us.  I am so thankful that you are

We love our new land and we can't wait to move to Asheville and start building the

Dear Susan,
I want to thank you again for selling my home and handling the details after I moved. You
and Don have always been good friends and I knew you would take care of this sale for
me when I decided to move back north. Good friends are hard to find and I am grateful
to have such knowledgeable people working with me.

Take care, Shane Riorden

Susan,
You've been a great realtor & now a great friend! Thank you for
selling my home so quickly!

and Kind Notes
(buyers agent)

"Susan Young did a great job as our agent. As out of town clients
she did a good job in long distance communication. She had a
good understanding of what we wanted in a house, and just as
importantly, what we didn’t. Susan would visit interesting houses in
advance to help us determine if we should make a trip to
Asheville. Because we were interested in an older home in one of
the historic neighborhoods, Susan’s knowledge of construction
and remodeling was extremely helpful. She helped walk us through
all of the positives and negatives of each house that we visited
(and we looked at a lot!) Once we made an offer she helped us
with each step all the way through closing. We would definitely use
Susan again."

"Dear Susan,

Thank you so much for all of your time, professional expertise and love and
dedication! This is a big step in our lives we didn't expect coming so soon!
Hope we will always keep in touch."

"Susan Young was so great to work with. She was very honest
when she felt a property was not up to par or not what we should
purchase. She was so helpful with zoning questions and the
intricacies of the entire process. I can't imagine navigating it
without her. She was very patient with endlessly showing us
properties until we found the right one. I can't recommend her
highly enough!" ~ Leigh Padgett, Hendersonville
I am a fellow Realtor and I feel compelled to write a review for
Susan, because she was such a pleasure to work with on a recent
closing! Having great working relationships with colleagues on the
other side of the table is incredibly helpful. Susan's
communication was second to none. She always let me know how
the buyer's process was progressing. Susan was kind,
professional, thorough, pro-active and willing to go the extra mile
to make the transaction happen smoothly for everyone involved.
She is highly knowledgeable and a great resource. I look forward
to doing another transaction with her in the future!

"I had not sold a house in over 20 years. I had my real estate
license years ago, and I knew enough to know I NEVER wanted to
try and sell it myself. A good agent is worth the price you pay and
Susan is absolutely the best. I did a search of top agents in town,
and her name came up along with others. While others started
calling incessantly, Susan simply sent an extremely thorough,
intelligent and well worded email listing what she does, without
hype and inflated promises. I liked the honest approach. She
came out, gave us some advice, and when we were ready to list
she was there every step of the way. We had an offer in 5 days
and was under contract in 7. Susan negotiated us through the
offer and through many tense days to closing. At the same time
we were also buying a new home in a different state, and I can’t
tell you how many times my husband and I said “I wish Susan was
our buyer’s agent as well!” Even though she wasn’t, she went
above and beyond and answered our buyer questions and
advised us on that end too. She was an absolute gem to work
with, and we highly recommend letting her list and sell your home.
You will not regret it. There is simply none better in WNC."

"Susan Young did a great job in every possible way. Words cannot
express how grateful I am to her for managing such a difficult
transaction."
