As Local As Local Gets

Ada grew up here in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of East Asheville. Her grandfather was Chief of Staff at the VA Hospital in the 60-70’s. Her great grand parents were Baptist ministers in the Candler area.

Ada has watched Asheville grown and change over a lifetime. She pairs this deep knowledge of place and culture with a caring and insightful personality.


Ada went far beyond our expectations of a realtor. We asked her to FaceTime homes while we lived in Portland, OR — and she did it. We asked her to keep us abreast of all the fine details — and she did it. We even asked her to sit in a bathtub to check it's comfort and size — and she did it. I can't say enough about her positive and fun attitude and making our dreams come true in Asheville! Thank you Ada!
