Shannon considered becoming a lawyer when she completed her undergraduate work, but could not bear to leave her beloved Asheville to attend law school out of the area. For almost ten years, Shannon worked as a legal assistant and last worked for a civil litigation firm, learning the tools of multitasking, demands under pressure, and working with a variety of individuals. Shannon sought an even greater challenge and obtained her North Carolina real estate license in 2010. Shannon enjoys everything that Asheville has to offer from kayaking the French Broad River to the Bywater Pub to volunteering at pet adoption events. Shannon's love for this community shines through when you work with her, as does her knowledge of local architecture and history.

Shannon Watkins is a native of Western North Carolina who grew up in the sleepy town of Marshall, about 25 minutes Northwest of Asheville. Shannon spent quite a bit of time in Asheville in her youth and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a degree in Political Science. Shannon also took many classes in Philosophy and History, but Poli Sci was the most challenging. To say Shannon is an expert in all things Asheville and WNC would be an understatement. Shannon and her husband, Tom, have called Asheville home for many years. Shannon enjoys traveling in the States as we as internationally. Some of her past destinations include India, Spain and the Bahamas. She plans to travel to Chile, South America in the near future. Shannon's husband proposed to her at the Taj Mahal! In 2012, she and her husband hiked El Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage trail that runs through the North of Spain. Shannon believes that travel is the best education one can receive. Shannon enjoys the challenges and learning experience that working in real estate constantly provides.

One of Shannon's greatest accomplishments is that she was able to create an entirely paperless file system at a law firm where she worked. She taught classes at the firm on technology and eventually helped other teams within the firm go paperless as well. Shannon has a great appreciation for technology and she is not intimidated by it one bit. Using the Geographic Information System (GIS), Online Deeds, and many other software programs in real estate research allows Shannon to answer your questions and provide you with the most timely information.
