The economy in Asheville and western North Carolina certainly took a hit during the global pandemic. The loss of tourism and inability to serve customers had an impact on many local small businesses and large companies. However, owners and leaders found ways to reach new customers and clients with innovative strategies, and our entire area is rebounding well. One industry that never slowed down during the pandemic is real estate. 

Properties were purchased sight-unseen by people who wanted to escape claustrophobic cities during quarantine periods. Our beautiful area offers the opportunity for a great view from the window while you're working remotely. Some made western North Carolina their new permanent home, while others have had to return to their offices.

In this article, we are discussing how a clean office promotes productivity.



While the global pandemic made significant impacts on the economy in Asheville, one area that did not slow down in the slightest is real estate. Quarantining in a large urban area proved to be a miserable experience for people throughout the country. As it began to seem clear that more and more careers were permanently moving to remote work platforms, Asheville‘s real estate market never slowed down. In fact, if anything, property values are rising faster than ever. Real estate agents have reported homes selling sight unseen in many cases.



The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has created multiple challenges for places of worship. The CDC has suggested that coronavirus may remain active for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.
