Scott, Carol and their youngest son Michael travel to Honduras twice a year as missionaries from their church. Their mission work there helps define who they are in this life. They work in support of a girl’s orphanage in the town of Taulabe in Central Honduras and consider themselves richly blessed with their second family in the girls of this orphanage. Throughout their visits, they are also involved with economic development projects with area mountain pastors guiding them and assisting them in providing a living for their families so as to grow their small churches as well as a medical mission where they take local doctors up into remote mountain villages for clinics. There is much opportunity for assistance here."My visits to Honduras are some of the most rewarding and humbling moments in my life" says Carol. "It is very important for me to continue in this mission. We are here on earth to serve our Lord and I can think of no greater way to do this than by serving these beautiful people who have such tremendous needs." Scott said, "It is awesome to now walk down the street of this small town and be recognized by the local people as someone to trust and love as we work together. We have found our niche here and excitedly look forward to each visit." For more pictures and information about Honduras visit and please ask Scott and Carol how you can help.

Browne Properties in Asheville North Carolina

Some Realtors have grew up in the Asheville area, and others know what it is like to make a move and a transition to a new area and begin investing in that area from day one. Scott and Carole Browne have done this and are ready to assist you with your move to Asheville North Carolina.

"Real estate sales, development and construction have been a life’s career for Scott Browne. For 32 continuous years, since college at The University of Akron in Akron Ohio, Scott has enjoyed independent success in this industry.

Originally from Bath, Ohio, Scott obtained an early interest in the real estate, development and construction business beginning in 1970 working for a medium-sized home builder. Throughout high school and college he worked for this same building company eventually leading the field supervision of the homes they built. In the mid 70’s he partnered with a medium-sized area real estate company to sub-divide and build small neighborhoods in his home town of Bath. Herein is the beginning of his real estate career.

In 1979 Scott married his partner in life and partner in business Carol. As newlyweds they moved to Naples Florida where Scott began the second phase of his career. As a Florida State Certified General Contractor and Licensed Florida Real Estate Salesman, Scott continued successfully in the development, construction and sales of SW Florida real estate for 13 years before moving to Asheville in 1993.

Licensed as a North Carolina Real Estate Broker in 1994, Scott has been continuously and independently been involved in small residential development, real estate investment, building construction and general real estate sales in Asheville, North Carolina. As a designated Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES ®), Scott has completed specialized training in the field of senior real estate services. Also an e-Pro® designate, Scott has satisfactorily attended the necessary coursework and demonstrated proficiency in the technology fields of real estate.

“For the past 15 years I have been a part of this industry’s prosperity, growth and change. Asheville is a wonderful place to be in business, raise children and nurture a family” says Scott. “I am blessed to have a career that I enjoy and that allows me to keep my family, business and life in proper focus”.

South Asheville Realty is Skyrocketing

And people are worried about Tiger Woods coming to town? The real estate development that is going on out here on the South side of Asheville is creating a landmark for many generations to come. Only a few years ago and this was just a bunch of hills and mountains, and no plans for the future. Then came Mr. Cecil, and he really started something here. I remember attending the grand opening years ago at One Biltmore Park. The Asheville Chamber had a big ribbon cutting ceremony, speech, and a small social. I was thinking "why here"... not knowing the "big picture". Now it is clear! This is the model high end development for other strategic investors to follow. Several other Asheville developers (and ones from out of town who are getting in on the early action) have gotten "the fever" and are doing their own sort of all-inclusive development. Versant and Reynolds Mountain in North Asheville are two of them.

Montford Real Estate in Asheville NC

Here is a photo of a nice apartment building in the Montford community. Notice the adequate pillars with the cozy balconies in between.

If you take a drive or stroll in the Montford area, it will not be long till you are stopped with your jaw hanging open at some of the historical buildings inside the City limits of Asheville. Homes that you would be used to seeing in the "high end" part of Flatbush in Brooklyn New York (Foster Ave/E 16th Street area). Real Estate in this community has shot through the roof in the last 5 years. Montford has many great neighbors and is walking distance to downtown Asheville. Property in this area has plenty of restriction. The Montford Community Association goes by the book when you plan on developing in this neighborhood. I remember a friend of mine was dealing with them and they had to confirm the house colors (this is good), and would not allow him to put solar panels on his house if they were visible from the Asheville Civic Center. Satellite dishes are a no-no, but we have seen people in this area "rigging" their own camouflage hi-tech equipment, and installing it where it would be hard for the "Association" to see/find. If you gotta have, you gotta have it... I guess.

Bridge Construction In Weaverville North Carolina

Here is a quick picture of the bridge construction on 19/23 North. If you headed to New Stock Rd or further this past weekend, you did not get far without driving down the side streets. This bridge was hit by a truck several months ago. The bridge above has been closed since then, but they just got around to doing the demolition.

Asheville Firestone Property For Lease

Do not know the full story on this, but the Firestone Tires property (next to Taco Bell, Across from Subway) is available for lease. This could mean several things... Out of business (this is the first thing we assume because of the tough market we are in), or it could be moving to a new better location (this would be nice... and redo, not just rerent, the building) It needs some upfit.
