Heather BallHeather Ball

Heather was born and raised in southeastern Ohio.  As a child she traveled quite a bit with her family, which gave her the desire to move around quite a bit as a young adult.  Her travels with her husband took her out West for a short time where they heard about the Western North Carolina mountains. She had always vacationed on Ocracoke Island growing up and loved it dearly, so they decided to move back East and see for themselves. 

Heather and her husband moved to the Asheville area in 2003 and fell in love immediately.  Though they have lived around Asheville for several years they couldn’t quite curb the need to try new places.  When her husband’s career as a timber framer gave them the opportunity to come to Franklin, they jumped at the chance.  They now consider Franklin home and put down roots.

 Over the years Heather has worked in a variety of customer service and hospitality positions.  She loves working with the public and helping them have an enjoyable experience wherever she is.  These skills gave her the opportunity to begin a new and greater career in Real Estate.  She began assisting Realtors on the Highlands-Cashiers plateau in 2013, after becoming friends with the Realtor that helped them buy their home in Franklin and he hired her as his assistant.  She is a fast learner and he a great teacher.  Before long she was assisting more and more Realtors.  She started A La Carte Realty Assist in 2017.

 This past year she decided it was time to take a step further and get her real estate license as well.  She passed the North Carolina licensure exam in January and joined her new teacher, Renee Cooney, in her firm, Legacy Properties by Renee, LLC, in Franklin and became a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the North Carolina Board of Realtors (NCAR) as well as the Carolina Smokies Association of Realtors’ Multiple Listing Service."

She enjoys assisting both buyers and sellers in the western NC area. Please contact her for any of your real estate needs.
