Carolyn Black, Property Manager

Carolyn Black

Carolyn, originally from Oregon, is a long-time resident of Asheville (since 1990) and has truly enjoyed raising her own family here in western North Carolina. She has a lifetime in the customer service industry but found her niche in real estate and has many years of experience as a Realtor in Western North Carolina. For the last 7 years, she has been a property manager with responsibility for 70+ properties and was the Vice President and Broker In Charge of a start-up business. 

She loves the mountains which have always reminded her of her West Coast home and visits her family as often as possible but returning to her Asheville home makes her feel very lucky to have both places she calls home so beautiful.  

Carolyn has a passion for helping people, from finding the right home to finding the right investment property and is very involved in finding the right property for her clients and seeing the purchase through from start to finish.  Each transaction is different from the next which always makes it exciting and learns something new almost every day.    It is important to Carolyn to feel her clients are satisfied with their transaction and does her best to accomplish that goal.  She is very enthusiastic about reaching the highest level of satisfaction for them.
