Meet the Agent: Angela McCoy Shuey

Agent: Angela Shuey

We’re proud of the team of agents we’ve assembled here at Nest Realty. We think they’re pretty awesome, and we think you will too. During our “Meet the Agent” series, we sit down with our agents to learn more about them, what makes them tick, and why they’re passionate about the real estate industry. In this installment, we chat with Angela McCoy Shuey, a Realtor with Nest Realty Asheville, and the sister half of the brother-sister team, The Kris & Angela Team.

Nest Realty: Tell us a bit about yourself! What brought you to Asheville?
Angela McCoy Shuey: I was born and raised here. I spent some time in Indiana when my family moved for a period of time in the 1970s, but we found our way back because we loved the mountains so much. Been here ever since. I’m married to my wonderful husband Ray, and we have a 23-year-old son and 20-year-old daughter, plus a 6-month-old grandbaby boy. I grew up camping and hiking all over these gorgeous mountains. I enjoy hiking, waterfalls, sunsets, rainy days, cooking, and real estate, but family time is the most important thing to me. Western North Carolina is where my roots are.

NR: How did you get into real estate?
AMS: One of the happiest days of my life was when we were able to finally purchase a home of our own, after renting for so many years. I remember moving day and the excitement of making this home our own. This is a big reason I got into real estate. I want to share in the joy I know my clients will have when they get the keys to their new home; it doesn’t matter if it’s your first home, your third, or your fourth. Home is where we gather, raise our kids, prepare meals together, and connect with each other. I love being a part of something so sweet and I feel like being a real estate agent is my true calling.

NR: What was your previous career? How has that prepared you for real estate?
AMS: I worked in health information management at Mission Health for about 20 years. I also worked in direct sales and retail sales, which gave me excellent communication skills and negotiating skills, but real estate is what inspires me to be the best I can be each and every day personally. I love that challenge. Always growing, always learning new things.

NR: What led you to Nest Realty, as opposed to another brokerage?
AMS: My brother Kris McCoy is a Realtor at Nest. I was a Realtor at another brokerage. Kris and I wanted to work together as a brother/sister team, but we were not sure how to go about it. I interviewed with Nest Lead Broker Angie Cullen and felt a connection, and she gave us a vision for our dream and inspired Kris and myself on how to make this happen. Now we are working as a team together at Nest and the transition felt right for me. I couldn’t be happier.

NR: What is your favorite part of being an agent?
AMS: The fact that I overcame so much adversity to get where I am today. Nothing feels better than that.

NR: Do you have a specific area of expertise to offer clients?
AMS: Living in Western North Carolina most of my life, I have an in depth knowledge of Asheville and surrounding areas. I have a vast knowledge of our real estate market and exhibit excellent communication skills, as well as excellent knowledge of the purchase and selling process. Ninja negotiator. Strong work ethic. I try to treat you like I would want to be treated. I give the best of myself to my clients every day.

NR: What makes you different from other agents? What sets you apart?
AMS: What sets me apart from other real estate agents is my passion for my career, positive attitude and drive, excellent response time to my clients, and expertise in my local market knowledge.

NR: What are five adjectives that describe you?
AMS: Strong, trustworthy, funny, humble, and disciplined.

NR: Who would be your dream client?
AMS: Always liked Keanu Reeves.

NR: If you had one piece of advice for a first-time home buyer, what would it be?
AMS: Get prequalified first!

NR: What is your favorite season in Asheville?
AMS: Autumn.
