After moving to Asheville in 2017, Kyle started working with the team at Asheville City Real Estate and discovered his passion for connecting people with their new homes, whether rental or otherwise. He finds great joy in the opportunities to connect with and engage Ashevillians, both old and new, by narrowing down clients’ wants and needs for their property, searching for the perfect starter home or investment or introducing them to new parts of town.
As the proud co-owner (alongside his partner, Kay), Kyle looks forward to carefully molding those connections into real estate deals.
Previously, Kyle served as the Communications and Resource Coordinator for the Hunger and Health Coalition, a local nonprofit focused on alleviating food and prescription medicine insecurity.
In his spare time, you can find him singing or playing the guitar, trying new food, visiting local coffee shops, reading or snuggling with his cats, Mystery & Aggie.
Al Sartorelli is the owner and operator of (Al) Sartorelli Real Estate LLC, a full-service Real Estate firm located in beautiful Asheville NC. With just under a decade working in the Real Estate business Al opened his own firm in the middle of the COVID pandemic and specializes in not only Buying and Selling forever homes, but also Full-Service Property Management for long term rentals.
Starting his career (unknowingly) in Property management with a part time job on the lawn crew that cut the grass for a local management company, he quickly rose through the ranks to running the firm then inevitably struck out on his own. His knowledge and experience in the world of investment real estate allowed his new firm to grow and flourish in a time when most landlords were in a state of panic and distress.
Al works actively with everyone from first time investors to professional flippers and wholesalers - proving everything from advice & council to representation on the purchase/sale, renovations, and management of buy and hold properties in the greater Asheville Region. With the explosion of post-COVID inflation the housing market has seen lots of changes with out-of- town investors betting on new “hot” areas, so working buyers from all over the country as they try and navigate their way to purchasing valuable investment property here in our exploding town.
Al continues to make a name for himself as the go-to resource for all levels of experience. From feature speaking at small networking meetups to podcasts he is always ready to help and be part of the discussion of affordable housing and affordable investing.
