Originally from Germany, Jens has made Asheville his home since 2006. He was originally drawn in by Asheville’s European vibe, with it’s many restaurants, cafés, and cultural diversity. Professionally, Jens spent 30 years developing and implementing international programs for students from around the world and now uses his interpersonal skills to help his clients market their home or find their dream home. From website design, marketing, social media advertising, budgeting, and sales, Jens has done it all. Aside from his passion for international travel and working with people from other cultures, Jens enjoys spending time with his wife, his 12 year old daughter, and their two dogs. His other interests include exploring bicycle trails, tubing on the French Broad River, real estate and event photography, live music, and hiking in Dupont National State Forest.
I love Portugal, especially Vila Nova de Milfontes, halfway between Algarve and Lisbon.

“Jens helped me purchase my first home, and he has been my guide and guru every step of the way!! He is incredibly responsive, thorough, and devoted to taking care of every detail. This man completed our entire contract negotiation while he was supposed to be on vacation!! He’s gotten us an incredible deal in all aspects and takes the time to answer all our questions and make sure all our options are understood and optimally navigated. He really puts his heart and soul into taking care of his clients, we could not have done it without all his help. Plus he’s got that great European vibe. Thanks Jens!”

“I interviewed several realtors before choosing Jens. Unlike others, Jens listened to our ideas about how we wanted to market the home. He helped us decide on the most effective upgrades and was able to highlight the property’s distinguishing features. I felt that he was an advocate for us and our property, his marketing skills are amazing, he stayed on top of all the details, communicated promptly and efficiently, and got us to the closing with minimal stress and the feeling that we had gotten out of the home what we had put in all these years and what it was worth. Selling a house with Jens is as good as it gets.”

"Jens Behrmann has been amazing! He has helped find my family a home and navigate the purchasing process while we lived out of state. He has been tenacious, patient and efficient and continues to ensure we have everything we need to make our transition to North Carolina a pleasant experience!"

"Jens did an outstanding job on the sale of my home. Starting with sincere conversation, continuing with multiple photo sessions to get the most perfect shots and ending with the sale of my home. Jens is quick to respond and very thorough. After having worked with several other realtors my home finally sold. No one put as much heart and soul into the sale of my home as Jens. I wouldn't use a different realtor in the future."

"Literally couldn't ask for a better Realtor. My wife and I were looking for a place in Downtown Weaverville, NC. Everytime a house popped up he was on it. He took full days to show us around many many houses. We found our dream location in a perfect fixer upper right in downtown. And we were the first showing of many that day. He was quick to get the contract in and we had it under contract the next day. and whats even better, we made a good friend. Thanks Jens!"

"Jens exceeded our expectations at every turn. Not a wallflower! Got us a better deal than we thought possible as well as directing us to a 5 star mortgage guy. This is our 4th house and our best experience yet with a realtor. Jens was always at the properties before we got there, something we had not experienced before. Honest, sharp buyer advocate with a great sense of humor!"
