Hello - Chicago to Asheville

Pat Dansdill
  • Asheville, NC
Posted Jun 29 2021, 17:50

Hi BP Community in WNC!

My name is Pat Dansdill and my wife and I are moving to the Asheville area from the Chicago suburbs (Maybe you've heard that line before, it seems to be a trend). I'm a teacher, and she works for a mortgage company. I have spoken to a few realtors so far, but I wanted to introduce myself, and eventually be on the lookout for some property management companies, as well as contractors.

I have a rental in the Chicago suburbs, and hope to grow in NC, as well as buying a house hack around Asheville. If you have any recommendations for a GC or management company, feel free to send them my way or just send a message to say hello! I also hope to make it out to any sort of meet up - I'll be on the lookout, but if anyone out there has any info I'd love to hear it, we'll be out there the first week of August, but I wanted to get the ball rolling so to hit the ground running.

Thanks,

Pat Dansdill

I'm moving to Asheville around the same time! Check out the CREIA group. I've only heard good things.

Welcome to NC!
I am also from Chicago and own a house in south suburbs and now live In Raleigh but I invest just north of Asheville so I’m out there quite a bit.  Would love to connect ....but only if you’re a White Sox fan (Cub fans need not apply ! )

Hey Pat, I've had clients use Terri at Tonsofrentals.com with success. Here is a solid GC recommendation too: Randy Williams / Randy[at]innovativecrows[dot]com

I think there is an Asheville REI or a branch of CREIA in Asheville or Hendersonville area. My husband and I are always looking to meet like minded Bigger Pockets fans. Good luck on the move. If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks, Melanie

Welcome to the area!  We do have a Hendersonville specific CREIA meetup that I host on the last Tuesday of the month at the KW office on Main St in Hendersonville.  We also have a great BP meetup in Asheville, as well.  There are lots of opportunities to network with other local investors.

Welcome to Asheville, NC! We are completing a renovation on a Live and Flip and just used a Blue Iris Homes and they were amazing.
