Born and raised in Western, NC, Deanna is passionate about these mountains and all they have to offer. After obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree from Clemson University she moved back to Asheville to begin her career. This town means a lot to Deanna, as it is not only where she grew up, but where she bought her first house, met and married her husband, and where they started their family! Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Deanna worked in banking/finance as a commercial loan underwriter for seven years, gaining a wealth of knowledge in commercial real estate lending. She knows what banks are looking for and is ready to assist clients find and finance their commercial or investment property, walking them through the lending process, as needed. Though her background is in commercial real estate, as a creative, Deanna loves exploring residential homes and their unique qualities, sharing design ideas with clients, and the feeling she gets when introducing a family to their new home where so many memories will be made. Whatever your real estate needs, she is here to help make your dreams a reality! When Deanna isn’t working, you will find her showering her new baby (Liam) with kisses, out on a trail with her husband (Josh), or you may hear her voice around town, as she enjoys singing with a local band.
