Meet the Agent: Marlene Clevenger

Agent: Marlene Clevenger

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 in installment, we chat with Marlene Clevenger, a Real Estate Broker at Nest Realty Asheville.

Nest Realty: Tell us a bit about yourself! Where are you from? What brought you to Asheville?
Marlene Clevenger: I was born and raised in Asheville.

NR: How did you get into real estate?
MC: My husband and I bought and remolded a house, and after being in it a couple of years, we sold it. We realized that we really enjoyed doing that. So, I got my license to help with this new love of ours. We are in our fourth house now and thinking this will be the last.

NR: What was your previous career? How has that prepared you for real estate?
MC: I managed a high-end, hand-crafted jewelry store for almost 30 years. It allowed me to work with customers on a very personal basis. When doing a custom piece I would lead the customers from a design in their mind to a finished beautiful piece of jewelry that they’ll wear for years then pass on for many generations.

NR: What led you to Nest Realty, as opposed to another brokerage?
MC: I liked the more boutique style real estate firm. Their attention to detail and their customer service is the best in the business. Also, they are leading edge with their marketing. And the people that work there are amazing.

NR: What is your favorite part of being an agent?
MC: I love the clients. You get to spend a lot time with them getting to know everything about them and building life long relationships.

NR: Do you have a specific area of expertise to offer clients?
MC: I am a native of the area so I have seen all of the changes over the years. I have also lived in different areas of Western North Carolina and have spent a lot of time getting to know the lay of the land. This gives me the ability to help guide my clients in the direction that best serves their needs.

NR: What makes you different from other agents? What sets you apart?
MC: I am very passionate about my job and treat each client as if they were my very own family. I am dedicated to working hard and making sure things are as stressless as possible.

NR: What are five adjectives that describe you?
MC: Dedicated, caring, hard working, and witty.

NR: Who would be your dream client?
MC: I would love to work with Jennifer Aniston. She has incredible taste and a deep love for architectural design. I think she and I would be great friends.

NR: If you had one piece of advice for a first-time home buyer, what would it be?
MC: Relax and let me do all the work.

NR: What is your favorite season in Asheville?
MC: One of the things that makes Asheville so unique is that it has four true seasons. Being a native I truly love all of them equally.

    Marlene is amazing! I’ve been blessed to know her personally and professionally for many years and I know she will be a truly special Broker to any clients lucky to work with her! Nobody can match her energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and attention to detail. I would recommend her unreservedly and, if I’m ever looking to buy or sell a new property, you can bet she’d be right at the top of my contact list!

    I wanted to take a moment and let you all know how wonderful Marlene is at Nest Realty. Marlene is a native of western North Carolina with expertise in knowing the area. Marlene will help buyers and sellers with the whole process of home ownership. Taking the time to explain various aspects of the rather perplexing process because she wants her customers to be well educated. She is absolutely one of the most dedicated and positive people I know. She is patient and warm in all her actions and always has your best interest at heart. I really cannot say enough good things about her and I am very thankful to call her a friend. I am happy to recommend her!

    I met Marlene in 1998 when my wife and I had our first date.
    I was impressed with her from that beginning.
    she has a no nonsense personality. When she takes on a project she sees it to the finish.
    I have complete confidence that Marlene will be nothing but successful. She does not give up.
    She’s is Asheville born and raised.
    I am proud to be her friend and know that if you are buying or selling real estate Marlene and Nest Realty would be a very wise choice.
