About Sona Merlin

Having lived in Asheville for 30 years, Asheville is now my “Home Town”. New England, where I grew up, is nice but western North Carolina is GREAT. Having successfully represented both sellers and buyers for 20 plus years as a real estate broker, I not only have the skills and knowledge to make your real estate experience productive but also smooth and pleasant.

My successful background in construction and manufacturing developed my scheduling and organizational skills which transferred into my real estate career years ago. This has proven to be one of my strongest assets and my clients have often complimented me on how smooth transactions are with me as their agent. Organizational skills are one of my greatest strengths, but a strong work ethic seems to keep me as one of the top real estate brokers in western North Carolina.

My goal is to educate and prepare my clients for all of the many differing facets to be dealt with as we move through each real estate transaction. With my professional guidance, I keep the whole process moving smoothly in the right direction.

I enjoy working with people and believe that we all can find our home in this great diverse community. We all play in the same playground and western North Carolina is one great playground. In a nutshell, I love what I do!
