Lisa Maloney moved to Asheville in 2007 from Hilton Head, SC to give her daughters the opportunity to grow up with the lifestyle offered in Western North Carolina, Following a 21 year career in sales and marketing with IBM in New York and Atlanta, she wanted to follow her true passion – real estate. She enjoys building relationships with her clients whether they are selling or buying and loves “mentoring” other real estate professionals. She is a graduate of Leadership Asheville, a member of the Luxury Marketing Institute, WinDS (Women in Default Services) AREAA and holds numerous REO and Short Sale Certifications. She affiliated Carolina Mountain Realty Group in April 2015 with eXp Realty due to its technology, leadership, and the accolades it was receiving in the industry. As an early adopter and innovator she recognized that eXp was leading the market in offering brokers and clients the most innovative real estate services available. She has been a member of the Cliffs Communities since 2002 and enjoys golf and other outdoor activities. Most recently, she is a breast cancer survivor and hopes to inspire others on the journey. In 2017 she participated on Mission Hospital’s Cancer Advisory Board. In 2017, she launched “The Bridge Fund”, a non-profit focused on improving lives for people locally and around the world. A portion of all commissions are donated to “The Bridge Fund”. Her current passion is volunteering with the prison ministry at the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women.
Her passion is helping others and using her skills and experience in the process. From 2012 – 2016, she personally went through a very challenging divorce that required the distribution of 6 personal real estate properties. Even though she considered herself very knowledgeable in real estate, mistakes were made. If she had received the RCS-Ds training prior to the divorce mediation(s), many hardships would have been avoided – huge negative impact on credit score, HELOC loan details that created a financially challenging obstacle to overcome and rental property conditions that resulted in very large repair bills. Rather than focus on her personal challenges, she views the situation as an opportunity to have “true, personal” examples of how much value a RCS-Ds project manager can provide to a client going through the divorce process.
