Use an experienced Realtor® - When buying a high-end luxury home, you need to find a professional realtor® who is experienced in luxury home sales. Your realtor® needs to listen to the clients needs and understand what the client is looking for. Your realtor® also needs to understand and know our real estate market and the general market conditions which can affect how you buy and where you buy. I am a real estate broker for Beverly-Hanks, the luxury home leaders in this area and overall sales leaders in Western North Carolina since 1976. I am a qualified, experienced and professional Realtor® and I am here to assist you in finding that perfect home for sale and to make this an exciting, enjoyable and stress free time for you.
Understanding your client - A realtor® needs to understand what their clients are actually looking for in a home home whether they would like to build or buy an existing home, their lifestyle and personalities reflect on where they would like to live and what sort of home they would like to purchase or build.
Housing specifications, needs and budget - Once I have an understanding of my client’s basic needs and wants, I can start the process of putting together a portfolio of luxury real estate. A few key factors in putting together the portfolio is the buyers housing specifications, such as size, floor plan, style, bedrooms, bathrooms, media room, fitness center, rec center, pool, entertaining needs, and of course the finishes. Housing needs: Will this be used for a second home? Primary residence? Need to consider maintenance? Do you need a concierge service? And most importantly what is your budget?
If you are looking for a new community then finding the right area is your next step - Below are three different samples of new home luxury communities (we have many more). This might help give you an insight as to what sort of area/community you might be considering or not considering.
The Ramble at Biltmore Forest - If you are looking to belong to a great community feel without the golf course but with a great package of amenities, park, Wellness center etc...The Ramble at Biltmore Forest is another beautiful development set on nearly 1000 acres and located in a prime position along the southern boundary of Biltmore Forest in the south and being very close to DT .

Intended land use - After going over the buyers housing specifications, needs and budget, the next key is to find out what kind of home site the buyer would like to have their home on: Are you looking for a standard size home site? What size of parcel would accommodate your home and your needs/lifestyle? Or are you looking for a tract of land, farm or equestrian estate? Depending on what you are going to do with and/or on the land you will also need to consider the topography of the land.
Amenities within a development - What amenities, if any are important to have within the development: golf course, wellness center, hiking, jogging, biking, pool, tennis, club house, restaurant, lake, river, park etc...
Finding the perfect area - Based on the clients needs, proximity to areas and amenities preferred within or outside a development, we will start discussing and targeting areas that have these particular amenities and client interests. We are now all on the same page and have an understanding of what we are looking for and it’s time to start picking areas to view.
Now it’s time to find that home! - Going over the above while in the office was time well spent! By taking the right step it eliminates confusion, frustration and what could have been an exhausting and frustrating search. Even if the client changes some of the search criteria along the way you still have a good idea of what they are looking for and you will easily adapt. We are now all happy, we know which direction we are heading and we are now off to a fun and exciting journey to view some neighborhoods and ultimately find the client their dream home, whether it be vacation home or primary residence.
