About Ellen

I am proud to say that Ashe County will be my lifelong home. Blessed to have grown up here on a large family farm, with parents believing that faith in God and hard work would take you far in life, I planted my roots here to carry on that philosophy. Those life lessons have made me the honest and dependable person I am today. Besides having a deep appreciation for my hometown, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit that lead me to choose real estate as a career.

About Roxanne

Raised in the High Country, I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2014, receiving a degree in Business and Marketing. My husband and I decided to stay in the area because we are passionate about the outdoors and all that the High Country has to offer, including hiking, camping, kayaking and skiing. In fact, a major part of who I am relates to helping and serving people and it is a big reason why I chose to go into the real estate profession. I have been a local MLS board director, a chair person for the Community Outreach Committee for the past two years, and a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and Highway Clean Up. Since 2018, I have achieved the goal of being in the Top 50 of agents in our MLS. My main objective is to make selling or buying your home not only the easiest process possible, guiding you every step of the way, but also to make the experience enjoyable. "Don't tell me the sky is the limit, when they are footprints on the moon." Quoted by Paul Brandt

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Jefferson?
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. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Jefferson?
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 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 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.
