About Me

"I could live anywhere in the world and I chose Asheville, North Carolina. This is true for me and it's often what I hear people say in Western North Carolina. I think people live in the mountains for the wonderful setting, mild climate and the quality of life. Knowing that, I work to make the real estate experience for my customers as smooth and stress-free as possible". Originally from Michigan, Pat spent 12 years in Raleigh, NC before relocating to Asheville in 1996. As a child on trips with her family, she fell in love with the mountains. Pat truly appreciates the natural wonders this location has to offer and feels lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Pat’s professional experience in many different areas of real estate is a benefit to you. She has been in full time residential sales in Buncombe and Henderson Counties since 2000. Pat's also worked for 4 years in real estate development & sales, 4 years in mortgage banking and 7 years in property management. Pat earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work at Eastern Michigan University. Her previous training and career in vocational counseling translates into her outstanding ability to genuinely listen and understand your real estate needs.


Pat was a joy to work with. We consider her a friend now and would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate, was always available, and kept us up to date on everything we needed to know during the sale of our home. She is friendly and approachable and we wouldn’t think of using anyone else if we need a real estate agent in the future.

My family has worked with Pat for almost 20 years, both as buyers and sellers. Professional service time and time again. The needs of our family always came first, providing us and guiding us to the right decisions. The depth of knowledge she posses throughout the process, attention to detail and most importantly the care and concern for our family needs has kept us coming back to her.

Pat Knaggs is the best realtor our family has ever had. She made buying our home so easy. She even saved us money. She worked with the home warranty company after the sale to have our broken refrigerator replaced with a new one. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks Pat!

We enjoyed working with Pat very much and if ever someone needs a Realtor recommendation in the Asheville area I will certainly be recommending them to Pat Knaggs! Pat is very thorough and diligent. I never had to worry if I was taking the right steps because she would walk us through every step of the way. I always felt like I had guidance where needed but also support when I made a decision. Something very important to me, and I would think to most people, is communication. Pat, was very responsive and I knew I could get a hold of her at any time, although I tried not to take advantage!

I can wholeheartedly recommend Pat to help you throughout the entire process of finding and purchasing a new home. She is knowledgeable, efficient and so very pleasant- you will enjoy the process. I retired to Asheville but was unsure of what I wanted. Pat helped me find the perfect home with everything I needed and wanted. You can count on her to see you through the entire process from house hunting to closing. I have worked with many other realtors in my lifetime and Pat Is truly “the best”.

I cannot recommend our agent Pat Knaggs highly enough. We would use her again in a heartbeat and will recommend her to our friends and colleagues. Pat is a consummate professional with wonderful local knowledge. She is incredibly personable, helpful, efficient, organized, and generally a delight to work with. Pat consistently went above and beyond for us and managed to turn a stressful time into a smooth ride. We are from out of town and Pat sacrificed her own time to be available for us. She is truly wonderful and a great example of what a great realtor should be.

I want to thank you for all your help in finding a buyer for my house in Connestee Falls, Brevard, N.C. The closing went very smoothly without problems. You kept me well informed about all the people who looked at my house and their remarks after their viewings. You communicated with the buyers agent to convey information between me and the buyer. You made sure we had all the papers that were necessary to be signed at the closing, so I didn't have to travel down to North Carolina from New York. The buyer wrote me a nice thank you note saying she was delighted I had allowed her to buy my wonderful home and it was evident my husband and I took very loving care of this home. She hopes to continue the tradition. How perfect that both sides were pleased!!! All in all, I couldn't have sold my house without you!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

When we moved to the Asheville area, we were in a state of flux, not knowing if we wanted to rent or buy a home. When we finally decided we were ready to buy a home, we were fortunate to find Pat Knaggs at Preferred Properties. She quickly became our go to person for every aspect of purchasing a home in a new environment. Pat knows the area very well and was able to help us find the homes we were looking at with ease. We finally settled on a condo (something we weren’t even considering). With Pat’s help and unending positivity, we secured the right mortgage company, and the closing came off without a hitch. Much thanks to Pat for being a true professional. She is an asset to Preferred Properties. If you are searching for a home in the Asheville and surrounding areas, look her up. Thanks, Pat, for everything.

Pat was great! I was looking all over the area, and she helped me narrow down my preferences and focus on areas that best suited our needs. We had great fun exploring three counties, and I learned so much about this area. When my husband and I found the perfect house, she kept the process moving smoothly up to and after settlement. She is also a great source for information on local services, such as contractors. She’s knowledgeable, thorough, and completely professional. I recommend her to anyone house-hunting in this area.

My husband and I felt that we need to let others know that she is a truly wonderful person and professional realtor. She was dealing with our needs for a house or condo for almost 2 years. Pat has been very patient and hard working through out this long period of time. We were delayed in selling our previous home and did not want to buy a new home until ours was sold. We really put a time crunch on ourselves but also on our Realtor Pat. She had been supportive and accessible in all ways possible. Pat is a great communicator. She returns calls, emails and texts quickly. Her knowledge and experience in this area of NC has been invaluable to us. Pat has also answered questions and made referrals to us in other areas such as the home warranty programs, mortgage companies, and condo rules and regulations. We sincerely appreciate all that Pat has done for us. She was referred to us by our son and his wife. They knew that she was a very qualified person for the job. Now we'd like to refer her services to others. We are confident that others will be as satisfied as we are with Pat Knaggs as their realtor.
