About Trip

"I bring Southern hospitality, eye for detail, and an  up-to-date knowledge of the Asheville market to every deal."

With my background as a business owner, in both hospitality and art design, making people feel at home or helping them improve their homes, have been my specialties for decades. Now, as a professional realtor, I bring that Southern hospitality, eye for detail, and an  up-to-date knowledge of the Asheville market to every deal. 

After attending The College of Charleston, I managed and co-owned some of Charleston's most iconic restaurants and popular nightspots until the late 90's. I met and married my wife, Pamela, in the Lowcountry. We left South Carolina in order to follow the success of her career in Broadcasting.  As an entrepreneur, I was the 'flexible' one, so when opportunities took us to Miami and Los Angeles, I built businesses there and learned the intricacies of those cities inside and out. 

We chose to move to Asheville in 2007 in order to raise our children and enjoy life in these beautiful mountains.  Having lived, worked, and both bought and sold real estate in some of the most desirable areas of our country, I’m excited to offer that unique and valuable insight to my clients. So whether you’re a long-time resident, wanting something in a different part of town, or are coming to Asheville from an entirely different part of the country, I’ve been in your shoes and would love to walk through the process with you. As the owner of Clingman Café in the heart of the River Arts District, I’m a long-time supporter of Asheville City Schools, Asheville Youth Mission, Asheville Greenworks, WNCAP, and OpenDoors of Asheville.  I am one of the founders of the River Arts Districts Business Association and continue to be an active member.
