Heidi Dubose Fore, Residental Broker Associate

Real estate is my passion, and has been my career for over 12 years now! My specialties include successful relocation, real estate investing, new construction, vacation rental purchase and sale, marketing luxury properties, and assisting first-time buyers. I am so grateful to work with a company that offers top-notch tools and opportunities to make your experience the best and easiest it can be, and I'm excited to help you successfully buy or sell your vacation home! My husband and I operate our own successful vacation rental, and I am familiar with the wants and needs of your future renters, the rules for our area regarding vacation rentals, and the best areas for maximizing your long-term potential. I look forward to talking with you about your unique purchase or sale!

Shane Peters

Real Estate Broker

Community is what I found when I moved here: a group of kindred spirits, like-minded do-gooders who seek to belong in a collective of caring people. Asheville provides that, maybe more than any place I have ever lived. I love to share that with others, and to help them find their place in our community.

Currently residing in Black Mountain, I have lived in the Asheville region for over 25 years. I pride myself on being an agent who will focus all of my efforts on you, whether navigating a purchase or selling a property, to give you the benefit of my many years of experience with homes, land development, and investment properties.

I place my clients' needs foremost in my dealings. My job is to represent you with honesty and integrity, both of which I deliver consistently. I love to share my knowledge and experience and truly hope that it empowers you to achieve your goals.

Housing has been my passion from the start of my professional life! I get to spend my days in Waynesville, Black Mountain, Asheville, Marion, Hendersonville, gosh everywhere! I specialize in making it effortless for my buyer and seller clients. I joined The Mountain Life In 2009, when I purchased my First NC Mountain Home in The Sky, on the lower ridge on Cold Mountain just outside of Waynesville. Initially, it was a second home and vacation rental but as of 2018 it became my permanent residence. My love of the mountains and real estate led me to the amazing team at Keller Williams Professionals in the summer of 2019.

Originally from the midwest, I grew up in the Washington, DC area, attending Vassar College and making my first career in the city working as a mortgage lender and at Fannie Mae. I worked in the mortgage banking world for 8+ Years, before pivoting into digital marketing and software sales. From Fannie Mae I navigated to Prudential Home Mortgage, then Sallie Mae and on to running SunTrust.Com. I’m a pro in business cases and I feel lucky to have deep sales and negotiation talents. Thankfully, transitioning this corporate knowledge into my real estate career was an easy and logical choice. I love housing and I am energized by a happy client and a job well done. My dear friends repeat the call… “What Took You So Long?!”
