Jennifer Merrell

About Me

Jennifer Merrell has led a diverse and eclectic life. After getting her Masters of Music degree in San Francisco, she lived in such cities as Chicago, Miami, and Oslo, Norway before coming back to her home town - Brevard, NC. She still plays French Horn professionally with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra in SC as well as throughout the region. Not only is she a trained classical musician and music teacher, she also tunes pianos and works with her husband remodeling homes. Her interests range from riding horses, camping, hiking, theatre, and comedy. She has written a couple of books in the field of music and is on many CD's. Real estate has always been an interest with Jennifer. As a child she loved to build sub-divisions in her sand box. After remodeling homes for 10 years with her husband, it was a natural step to get her Broker's license. She has worked at Steve Owen and Associates downtown office since 2009 and has distinguished herself as a top agent in today's market. Her clients rely on her for her professionalism and diligence.

Testimonials

Jennifer Merrill IS the reason are living in the home we wanted! We are so lucky she happened to be in the office the day we wandered in. She really KNOWS this area and she understands people. Her intelligence and tenacity, not to mention good humor, communication skills, patience, and extraordinary client service are, without exception, the best we've ever experienced. This isn't our first rodeo in buying or selling a home and this one was exceptionally complicated. Thanks to Jennifer, who always kept us on her radar and helped us with details we couldn't manage from a distance, we were able to buy and move into our just cleaned, fully functional, dream home just in time for Christmas! We wouldn't buy or sell a home with anyone else as our trusted partner, and now, our neighbor and friend.

Jennifer Merrill has been both a buyers agent and sellers agent for us over the past few years, on both commercial and residential properties. In our transactions she was knowledgable, thorough, practical and very personable. We would not hesitate to contact her on any future real estate needs that we might have.

When an agent in Hendersonville with whom we had worked for several weeks in hopes of finding a place in that area decided it would be in our best interest if he bowed out when we decided Brevard was where we wanted to be--since he did not know Transylvania County very well--he told us there is one and only one agent there that he would even consider referring us to. "Her name is Jennifer Merrell", he said, "and she is with the Steve Owens Agency". Wow, what a gift that referral was and still is. From agent to friend and even closer; that is our relationship with Jennifer since meeting her in April, 2015. Every agent knows the properties in their home county, but she seems to know each area, each street and most houses on that street. Her knowledge saved us huge amounts of search time and eventually led us to the most perfect location and house we could have ever hoped to find in an area we knew very little about when we began our search. Sounds a bit corny I guess, but she not only helped us find our house; she helped us find ourselves. She is a hero in our lives.

Thank you for the opportunity to talk about our favorite realtor! Jennifer Merrell is a top notch. She's highly experienced, professional in every way, aggressive without being obnoxious, extremely smart, and one of the nicest people you'd ever have the privilege knowing. During the course of selling our home, Jennifer has been intuitive and very attentive and presented innovative ways to market our home. She ensures you get prompt feedback when your home has been shown, which is information a seller is always anxious for after a showing. Prior to listing our home for sale, we interviewed eight (yes eight!) Realtors with four (yes 4!) local firms. Hands down, Jennifer came out on top and we never had one single regret. We have loved working with Jennifer and would recommend her to anyone looking for the best Realtor in all of Western North Carolina!

Jennifer Merrell was the agent that facilitated the purchase of our new home in Brevard. Having purchased 7 homes throughout our nationwide travels, the experience with Jennifer was absolutely the best. She was always accessible, answered all our questions and concerns immediately and assured we were up to date in communications with all the stakeholders. We were so impressed with Jennifer's professionalism and positive results that we chose her to be the selling agent for a property we had previously listed with a different realty firm. Her reputation as a honest and customer dedicated agent is well deserved based upon her exceptional knowledge about the community and real estate transactions. Jennifer is at the top of the list for recommended agents for all real estate needs.
