I am proud to say that I have been a real estate broker for four years now at Apple Country Realty.  I love working here because of the unrivaled caring attitudes and work ethic of the people at this office.  I work on a team with my mother-in-law, Lori Gonce.  Together, we total over 20 years of experience.  Our top priority is to make our clients happy.

I have always had a passion for negotiating deals, and buying and selling things.  In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy restoring items and selling them online.  Selling real estate is even more rewarding to me because not only do I get to negotiate deals, I truly enjoy helping people find what they are looking for.  Whether it's a piece of land to build your dream home on, or the perfect existing house that meets your criteria.  I would be honored to assist you in your search.  As a seller, because of my own hobbies, I understand the importance of pricing something you have put many hours of love into.  Looking at comparable sales in the area is important and helping you get top dollar is my goal.

I am very familiar with Henderson County and surrounding areas because I have lived here all of my life.  I enjoyed being raised in the area and have never thought about going anywhere else.  This location has many things to do if you enjoy being outside whether it be camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, visiting local orchards or taking a stroll down Main Street.  The mountain views sure aren't bad to look at either.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love animals.  I have two dogs and a cat (that I rescued and bottle fed at 1 week old) that I adore.  With that being said, I know how important it is to make sure your new home can accommodate your furry family members too.  Communication is key and I always strive to listen to your wants and needs to achieve the best outcome in every transaction.  My goal is to make the buying or selling process as fun, easy and stress-free as possible.  

I pride myself on providing the best service I can for each client, regardless of size or type of real estate.  Whether you are a first-time home buyer or selling your home for the second time, I am here to assist you in any way that I can.  


“Ashlee Gonce was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were on a pretty strict timeline and searching for a new home almost completely from a different state. She didn't miss a beat and was extremely communicative and helpful the entire time. She always had our best interest in mind and fought the whole way to help us find the best place we could and the best deal we could get. I would highly recommend this organization and especially Ashlee for anyone looking at buying in the area. 10/10”

“From the beginning, Ashlee was fantastic. ANYTIME I had a question, she was "right on it". I appreciated the fact that she cared about my concerns and was always looking to help find the right property for me - not just make a sale. Thanks, Ashlee. You rock!”

“We loved our experience working with Ashlee to buy our lot in Hendersonville. She always had our best interests in mind, whether communicating with listing agents, putting us in touch with HOAs or city departments, or just making sure we were looking in areas where we could get reliable high-speed internet. I would recommend Ashlee and Apple Country to anyone looking to buy in Henderson County. Thank you so much!”

“Apple Country Realty is an excellent company--large enough to have all necessary resources while being small enough to feel like real people (instead of corporate entities!). Ashlee is the best real estate agent we've ever dealt with. She was attentive, professional, and extremely skilled at responding with just what we needed (which varied lots during our 2-year search for our mountain home). During the search itself (most of which was done from afar), she promptly responded to any queries, sometimes even suggesting things to think about that we were unaware of. During the actual house visits, she was peacefully in the background as we talked through the pros and cons of the different houses. Once when she saw that we were especially interested in a house but worried about a zoning issue, she got on her phone and contacted a few people to get some answers. And she was truly exceptional during the inspection period, helping us get all of the tests we wanted and helping us interpret the results. We've even called her a couple of times since we moved in with questions about the area. She is always friendly and helpful. Ashlee Gonce is an excellent real estate agent.”

“Ashlee was great! She helped us find and purchase our first home. I highly recommend her and Apple Country Realty. We were able to get the home we wanted for a great price. Ashlee was even able to negotiate a new heating and air system at the cost of the seller! We couldn't be happier with our home and all of the hard work Ashlee did to make the sale happen!”

“Ashlee is the best! She went above and beyond to help me find my dream house. Always prompt and very knowledgeable, can walk you through every step and make home buying a breeze. Will for sure be calling her again if I ever need her and would highly recommend anyone buying or selling to give her a call!!!”
