About Randi Beard
After being a corporate meeting manager for fifteen years in the pharmaceutical industry, Randi decided to expand her interest to real estate. For the past 12 years, Randi has jumped head first into all aspects of real estate. She served as a Substitute Trustee for foreclosures and gained valuable insight about the process and since has navigated several successful transactions with REO’s. She felt real estate would prove to be as interesting as managing corporate meetings given every transaction would hold its own set of opportunities and challenges. She has been buying and selling rental properties while learning techniques of creative financing and utilizing various resources. “The most exciting aspect of real estate for me is that each transaction is unique and there are several ways to achieve a goal”.
Randi’s corporate background has given her the expertise to handle every detail for her clients and allow them to enjoy the process. After having sold several investment properties, she realized how much she enjoyed residential and multi-family sales. “I love working with people and home has always been such an important part of my life. Most of our special memories are created in our homes. I get a sense of fulfillment when I am able to help folks find their home or investment”. She brings her experiences gained from extensive international and third world travel to real estate and is comfortable with all types of buyers and sellers.
Randi grew up in Louisville, KY graduating from University of Kentucky in Lexington with a BS in Cultural Anthropology. Randi first fell in love with the Asheville area working as whitewater kayak instructor for the Nantahala Outdoor Center, and, after living in Palm Springs, CA and Atlanta, GA, returned to the mountains knowing this would be home. Randi and her husband Andrew live in Asheville, NC with their son Beck and bulldogs Gracie and Lulu. They all enjoy the many outdoor activities this area has to offer including biking, hiking, trail running and water sports.
Randi is an active member of the Asheville Board of Realtors, North Carolina Association of Realtors, Carolina Real Estate Investors Association (CREIA), and National Association of Realtors.
