Jody has a contagious enthusiasm for homes and for Asheville that makes buying and selling real estate a pleasure for everyone. He takes great care in orienting others to the complex workings of a transaction, works tenaciously to make everything go smoothly and he takes great pride in keeping it simple. Over the past several years, Jody has performed competitively among the top most producing REALTORS® in Western North Carolina.
Jody came to Asheville to be close to our lush forests and whitewater rivers. He spent several years exploring the Appalachian Mountains and the Everglades of Florida as a wilderness instructor with North Carolina Outward Bound School. Eventually drawn to an urban lifestyle, he traded his backpack for home ownership and managing a scholarship program to provide Outward Bound courses to those who otherwise could not attend. Jody then spent two years coordinating a capital campaign that has allowed WCQS Public Radio (88.1 FM) to improve their service to the Western North Carolina community.
Jody is a certified ECO Consultant, one of a group of Asheville REALTORS® who are working together to advance the environmental sustainability of local real estate. Jody serves as Board Emeritus of LEAF Community Arts, connecting cultures through community with local & global youth outreach programs, events and twice-annual festivals. And, he serves on the Asheville Advisory Board of NC Outward Bound School, striving to provide scholarships for life changing outdoor education to local youth, teachers and veterans. In between professional and civic passions, Jody enjoys time with his family, perfecting their landscape, hosting cookouts with friends and having fun on cycling, paddling and other outdoor adventures.
