About Me

Simone Bernhard is one of those rare birds who grew up in Asheville. A passionate student of Asheville’s history, Simone led walking architectural and historical tours of downtown and knows the area with a depth and appreciation for the development and potential of each neighborhood. Simone’s years of training as a musician have given her an eye for details as well as the ability to see how they relate to the big picture. In her varied career working for local non-profits (including the Asheville Art Museum, Arts Council, Asheville Symphony, NC Stage, Preservation Society, and more), Simone’s care and diligence on behalf of those she served marked her as a standout employee, volunteer and friend who knows just about everyone in town! Simone brings these talents to her work for Preferred Properties and orchestrates the intimidating process of buying or selling a home with a deft and personable charm.


Simone Bernhard was the perfect agent to find 2180 Riceville Road for me (and eventually my son) to live in. She honed our search every time we looked. We made measured trips, she paid attention to all I mentioned about what we wanted. I felt heard. Her responses were light and she functioned as an accomplished facilitator. We have found the perfect house for our lifestyle. I had a good time with her and love the end result…my friends’ first remark upon introduction to the new property is: "It is so you, Jane." I know a lot of people would love working with her. I can recommend her highly and look forward to knowing her for a long time.
