Gwen Croft, Lesbian Asheville RealtorPeriodically we’ll feature one of our real estate professionals here to let our readers know about some great Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, and Other Real Estate Professionals.

I have one simple rule that I live by: to treat you as I’d want to be treated. That means I listen to your needs and wants, I respond to your request quickly, and I am always ethical and honest. If you want someone who will always greet you with a smile, who will have your best interest at heart, and who is arguably the hardest working lesbian real estate agent in Western North Carolina, then I’m your woman. Southern born, I moved to New York City for 11 years before coming to the Asheville real estate market over 5 years ago. That means I’ve worked with people from all walks of life and can handle about anything and anyone, as a true New Yorker has too. But, I always try doing it with the grace and charm of a native southerner.
