Zoltan Desi, GRI
My name is Zoltan Desi. I specialize in assisting buyers and sellers in the Western North Carolina mountains with the emphasis on the Asheville–Hendersonville–Brevard triangle (Buncombe, Henderson and Transylvania Counties).
I have been involved in real estate since 2004 when I started investing in residential homes. In 2006, I decided to become a licensed broker to be able to serve the public and started practicing brokerage in 2007. Throughout up and down markets, I have represented many buyers and sellers and have learned the importance of where we are in the market cycle, which is a generally overlooked factor by most home buyers, even investors.
To further my education in real estate; I enrolled in the GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute) program and acquired this prestigious designation in 2015. Realtors powered with the GRI have pursued additional knowledge and skills to help guide you through any real estate transaction smoothly and easily. GRIs are well-versed in the following areas: business skills, financing, technology tools, legal issues, negotiations.
In 2015, I was the proud recipient of the NC Real Estate Commission’s Joe Schweidler Memorial Scholarship award for exceptional academic achievement in the GRI program.
I put my skills and experience to work when helping clients sell or buy their homes.
“We have bought and sold many houses through the years and dealt with many different realtors and by far Zoltan Desi has been the best. He was knowledgeable, efficient and always returned phone calls, texts or e-mails promptly. Zoltan is a pleasure to deal with in all aspects. He was our buyers agent first and later listed and sold our house. We got full asking price! We have no reservations in recommending him to anyone we know”

“Thanks for the pleasant buying experience!”
“We decided to sell our home in Flat Rock, which had been rented for several years since we moved out of state. Zoltan was an amazing partner in this transaction. He was responsive in his communications and kept tabs on the house since we don't live nearby, and we truly trusted his advice. He helped us set realistic expectations and didn't pressure us to accept the first offer. In the end, the home sale transactions was a win for everyone involved. We were able to handle all the details remotely, and were glad Zoltan was our boots-on-the-ground”
Ted and Cindy C.
“Over the years Zoli helped us sell and buy our homes four times. He’s like family”

Joining Exit Mountain Realty in 2014 was a great decision. While we enjoy the benefits of our affiliation with the Exit brand, our company is locally owned and run. We have a visionary owner/broker who is part of the day-to-day operations and an excellent team I can collaborate with. Our agents use cutting edge tools and marketing methods which earned us the reputation as Western North Carolina’s most innovative real estate firm.
Ok, it’s finally time the reveal the origin of my unusual name and accent. I was born in Hungary and spent my early years there. I visited the Carolina Mountains in the mid 90s as a camp counselor and fell in love with the area. I kept coming back every summer until I had an opportunity to settle down and make Brevard NC my home. I currently live in the Hendersoville area.
One of the main reasons I live here is the trails and rivers. I am an avid mountain biker and whitewater kayaker. These activities have helped me develop and maintain a mental and physical toughness and sometimes force me to stay outside of my comfort zone so I’m able to tackle tough situations in other areas of life.
If you are considering buying or selling a home; let’s start a conversation today; I am ready to listen to your ideas!
