Our agents have been out and about! From helping build communities up through service to celebrating with clients, below are a few fun highlights to share from our “Company News Feed.”


Antoinette Prisco!

Newest Addition to our Team

My passion for creativity and my love of working with real estate has steered me in a few pointed directions. The first being a licensed Interior Designer and now a Real Estate Agent for Berkshire Hathaway here in the heart of the majestic Smoky Mountains.

Born, raised and educated in CT, I migrated to FL where I owned my interiors business for 35 years. During that time, I came here often as a hiker for over 20 years until I had the opportunity to purchase my very own cabin. I fell in love with all the area has to offer in regard to quality of life, outdoor activities, and scenic beauty.

My design and remodeling experience will prove beneficial for any buyer or seller in the fact that I can see beyond the obvious and help my clients achieve their vision and needs throughout their transactional journey, which can be stressful at times. As with any big decision, it is always comforting to have a professional in your

corner that has your best interest in mind and will strive to make your selling or buying experience as pleasant as possible. I look forward to being your agent and finding your dream mountain home.

Communications from Christy Mitchell

Greening Up the Mountains

Christy recently enjoyed Greening Up The Mountains in Downtown Sylva! The event featured local arts and crafts vendors, great food, demonstrations from Green Energy Park, music at Bridge Park, and fun family activities.

The Scoop from Jay Spiro


Jay threw on his apron to flip pancakes and helped make the April Rotary Club of Sylva pancake breakfast a success. All proceeds from the event went to support local nonprofit efforts to improve the community!


Serving as Membership Chair of the Rotary Club of Sylva, Jay Spiro recently helped honor Linda Haggard for her remarkable contributions as the Smoky Mountain High School Performing Arts Teacher.

Mrs. Haggard is retiring this year and the club gathered to celebrate her lasting impact on the community through nurturing students and helping them develop lifelong skills on stage and beyond.

Thank you, Mrs. Haggard!

What to expect for the 2024 Summer Housing Market

One truism about the housing market is that it changes constantly to favor sellers or homebuyers. Seldom does a balanced market exist where buyers and sellers are more evenly matched except for summertime, when schools are out. That’s why it’s the busiest of homebuying seasons.

To be a better prepared buyer, you should get prequalified for a mortgage loan, and if costs are too high, you should lower your debts and pump up your savings for a down payment until you’re ready to buy.

If you’re looking to sell, you should get your home in top condition so you can command the highest price possible. But the most important step is to build a strong relationship with your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network professional.

Your broker or agent can help you, whether you’re a buyer or seller. With a vast amount of data at their fingertips, they can keep you abreast of any changes in your local market. This spring, for example, the share of homes with price reductions was the highest since January 2017 and mortgage interest rates dropped slightly, which enticed sidelined buyers back into the market.

Freddie Mac predicts that interest rates won’t drop by much before June 2024, so homebuyers and sellers should be aware of the importance of having good credit.

How Much Home Can I Afford?

There are plenty of mortgage calculators online to help you figure out how much you can afford to spend on a home. With some quick math, you can get an idea, but there’s a lot more information you need to get the real picture of affordable homes for your household’s needs.

Assuming you’re just at the beginning of the homebuying process, you may be browsing the Internet looking at interest rates and home listing sites to “get an idea” before contacting a lender or a real estate agent. You’ll be far better prepared if you “qualify” yourself for a loan by answering all the questions a mortgage lender would ask. recommends that you figure out your starting price range by analyzing your own finances. If you don’t already have one, you’ll need to outline a monthly budget. Most lenders like to keep housing costs at between 25% to 36% of your takehome pay so you’re less likely to experience financial pressures and default on an affordable payment. Read more.

How to Calculate ROI for a Rental Property

Are you interested in more than just booking a vacation? If you fall in love with the area as much as we have, you may want to invest. Your return on investment (ROI) is how much money you make or lose on a property investment. It should be enough to cover expenses and have positive cash flow. ROI can vary greatly, depending on the formulas you use.

The 2% rule. This rule states that the monthly rent for a rental property should be at least 2% of its purchase price. If you paid $300,000 for your home, you should be able to rent it for $6,000, as $300,000 X 0.02 = $6,000. This figure may be unrealistic in most markets.

The 1% rule. Let’s say that monthly rents for single family homes like yours are closer to $3,000 That’s only a 1% return on your $300,000 home. Is it worth it? Yes. If you combine the costs of your first mortgage and equity loan at $240,000, and the projected monthly rent of $3,000, you’ll net $600 a month in addition to the renter paying your mortgages. $240,000 X 0.01 = $2,400. $3,000 - $2,400 = $600. $600 X 12 = $7,200.

ROI for rental properties is determined by subtracting the total operating costs from the total rental income for the year and dividing this number by the mortgage amount. Operating expenses don’t include mortgage costs, but it does include repairs, maintenance, taxes, utilities, vacancy losses, management fees, etc. $3,000 X 12 = $36,000. Monthly operating costs are $800 X 12 = $9,600. $36,000 - $9,600 = $26,400. $26,400 / $240,000 = 0.11 ROI. ROI should increase the longer you own the property. Questions?
