Relocation and Listing Expert
I thrive on building relationships with people and helping them navigate the often complicated process of buying or selling a home.
I've been serving clients here in Asheville for nine years as a Top Producing agent. Real estate was the perfect match for me, given my architectural background and geniality.
I've lived in Asheville now for twenty-five years. When I first moved here from Baltimore, I lived just outside of town.
I now enjoy the close-to-downtown access of my home in the historic neighborhood of Montford.
I love sharing my years of experience and knowledge of the local market to help my clients make the best decision for their families.
I'm a hard worker, personable, honest, and I have a talent for getting things done. Please refer to my reviews to see what my clients have experienced.
My broad design and architectural background, coupled with my extensive knowledge of the Asheville area market, is what sets me apart as an agent. I vow to listen closely to your needs and work diligently to exceed your expectations whether you're buying or selling a home here in our beloved town of Asheville.
"Laurie is an excellent realtor. I immediately felt like I had the right person after selecting her randomly. I never looked for anyone else. I had to buy a house from another country, and she assisted me every step of the way. My entire family and I marveled at how generous she was with her time. Not only her time, but she has a keen eye since she has a degree in architecture. I grew to trust her. She was honest when the house wasn't right for me, or it required too much work, even though she would have made a higher commission on the more expensive ones. I also loved it that I never felt "hustled" especially at Christmas time. Laurie was intuitive enough to step back and allow me to go through the usual ups and downs of doubt and fear, and she never pushed me. At the same time, she was always in step the minute I needed her. I've had five realtors in my life, and Laurie knocked it out of the park as number 1# in service, class, and being candid. I can't say enough high praises about her. And we 'landed' the perfect home for me!"

"In a business that is full of individuals looking to represent you, it can be challenging to know who to go with. Laurie Reese is one of those few people who can quickly understand your needs in a home and at the same time make you feel at ease in collaboration and decision making. She is exceptionally responsive and respectful to the process and the importance of the decision being made. Numerous times she adjusted and accommodated to what worked best for me and made it all feel painless. I cannot say enough about Laurie. She is someone who by the end of the home buying process feels more like an old friend than an agent. There are so many boxes to be checked in finding the right person to work with you, and Laurie checks all of those boxes. Most importantly, she communicates in a way that makes you feel in the know while at the same time feeling understood and comfortable about the process from start to finish. I highly recommend Laurie to anyone who is starting this process or who has hit a wall and needs another approach."

"We recommend Laurie Reese as a realtor whole-heartedly and without reservation. We are from out of the area and she expertly guided us and helped us find and buy our awesome home in the exact part of Asheville we wanted to live. Laurie was a constant source of invaluable information and support throughout the entire process. She knows the area intimately, and immediately understood our wants and needs and was able to show us houses that met our very picky criteria. She was always very responsive and sought out answers and advice when needed. She helped us envision the potential of our house, and was able to connect us with anyone and everyone we needed and will need to make our dreams a reality. The purchase was not without its hiccups, and Laurie stood by us and was able ensure that all ended smoothly and in our best interests. But most importantly, and best of all, Laurie is one of the nicest, most caring, proactive, funniest, special people we have ever had the privilege of working with, and we look forward to continuing our great friendship for many years to come.
