Asheville Realtor ®, Jennifer Goodier has spent her summers vacationing in Mills River, NC (near the Asheville Airport) at her family farm since 1968. Western North Carolina became very special to her as her family gathered there to be together every year. From Mills River, they made frequent trips to Asheville and Hendersonville to shop and dine. She remembers the drive home at night was often delayed by cows that had journeyed into the road from the nearby dairy. Those were the same cows she frequently visited with her grandfather. The local dairy farmer rented the pasture at her family farm.
Born in Florida, she spent her formative years in the Orlando area, graduating from Winter Park High School in 1986. She has also lived in Texas, Kentucky and Los Angeles for short periods of time. Jennifer Goodier holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics with a Minor in Business from The Florida State University.
In 1996, she decided to make Mills River her home. Shortly after settling in, Jennifer became a massage therapist and performed mobile massage traveling all over Asheville and Western North Carolina serving her clients. She continued her massage career for 17 years specializing in deep tissue massage. During that time, she also enjoyed 10 years as a website and graphic designer specializing in (SEO) search engine optimization and marketing. She has enjoyed watching Asheville grow over the years attracting people from all over the country who have enhanced Asheville’s rich culture and friendly community.
In 2003, she met her former partner and they started their venture into real estate, renovating a 1928 bungalow that was slated for demolition. They did everything from repairing a hole in the floor including sistering joists, and laying used, matching flooring, renewing the plumbing in the whole house and replacing all electrical wiring. They made that 5 bedroom and 1 bath house into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath rental home.
North Asheville Resident:
Since 2008, Jennifer has lived in North Asheville in one of the most coveted neighborhoods, Lookout Valley which has easy access to hwy 19-23/26 and Merrimon Ave. It also backs up to the UNCA trails. It only has access by Red Oak Rd which provides a safe neighborhood for families. Truly a unique neighborhood, Lookout Valley has even prompted people to make professional signs urging residents to call a phone number when a home is for rent.
Jennifer became an Asheville Realtor®because she felt her love for helping people, her experience with online marketing and home remodeling all pointed to becoming an agent. Part of her history as an agent was overseeing the on-boarding of new agents or transitioning agents into a large, local real estate firm. She helped many agents in their transactions and oversaw the technical programs and marketing for the agency as well. Over the years, she has nurtured many relationships with expert tradesmen, contractors, architects and mortgage brokers in the area.
