Ginny Barker
Keller Williams Realty
About Ginny

Whether buying or selling, Ginny realizes the real estate transaction is not only an economic decision but often an emotional time as well. She recalls the closing of a former home, “I should have grinned all the way to the bank, however I sobbed on the closing papers thinking about the friends we were leaving.” Having lived in five states, Ginny knows the joys and frustrations of moving. Shortly after landing in Mooresville in 2001, Ginny joined the Welcome Committee as a Community Ambassador and has enjoyed welcoming hundreds of newcomers to the Lake Norman area. Hearing new homeowners’ stories of their moving experiences motivated Ginny to obtain her real estate license and become an advocate for her clients. Raised on a Michigan Dairy farm, Ginny learned the value of dedication and hard work. After graduating from Michigan State University, she enjoyed a career in marketing and public relations which relocated her from the Midwest to California. After marriage and two children, she followed her husband’s building materials career to Colorado and finally to North Carolina. While the children were young, she worked from home as a recruiter placing independent contractors in projects across the country. Ginny’s background in marketing, public relations and recruiting along with her love for people serves her well in real estate. After obtaining her real estate license in 2006 she has successfully closed hundreds of transactions. Whether working with a buyer or marketing a home for a seller, Ginny is known for “Going Beyond Service.” When her husband, Dan, joined Ginny in the business the team motto became, “Raising the BAR in Real Estate.” Together with their administrative assistant, Lisa French and buyer specialist, Ellen Takatori the Barker Team strives to continually go beyond service and raise the bar in the business.

Minouche Holcomb
Premier Sotheby's International Realty
About Minouche

A North Carolina transplant by way of Colorado, Minouche Holcomb can’t imagine living anywhere else. She has been an award-winning real estate professional in the Asheville area since 2015 and is thrilled to partner with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty as a broker associate and help clients find their own piece of paradise in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Prior to her career in real estate, Minouche spent five years working for the local beer industry, including in the marketing department of Highland Brewing Company. Finding that her heart was no longer in beer sales, she found her calling as a property manager for one of Asheville’s income-restricted housing buildings, and eventually obtained her REALTOR® license. Minouche delivers excellence, professionalism and luxury to her clients at every prince point, from lower-dollar properties to high-end estates. She considers herself a “blue collar” REALTOR® who is incredibly hands-on in sharing her knowledge of renovation, construction, repair and problem-solving. Minouche proudly says that she has rarely placed a house under contract where she didn’t first at least lay eyes on the crawlspace herself. Known for her no-pressure reputation of gentle guidance and professional advice, Minouche prides herself on making transactions as easy as possible for her clients. She loves working with people who reside and work in western North Carolina, not just second-property homeowners and investors who see the area as a vacation spot and has an exceptional knack for making for first-time buyers feel comfortable and trust that she has their best interests at heart. Outside of the office, Minouche loves camping, kayaking and canoeing with her two sons, or piling the family into her Jeep to check out swimming holes and out-of-the-way fishing spots. She has personally worked on several home renovations, and loves upcycling old furniture into something else, like an old roll-top desk she recently converted into a bathroom vanity. Minouche is also actively involved in the Haywood Street Congregation, a local church that supports the local homeless and low-income population, as well as those struggling with addiction and mental illness.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Asheville?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Asheville?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Asheville to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Asheville is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
