Sybil Argintar is one of those rare folks who was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina, and still calls it home! Growing up in Asheville, Sybil’s father and grandfather had a family store in the center of downtown Asheville that was closed in 1968. At that time her family moved away, but Sybil knew she would return one day. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in landscape architecture in 1980, followed by a master’s degree in historic preservation in 1986, and then working in the Atlanta area for several years, Sybil moved back to Asheville and has lived here ever since.
Sybil has been licensed as a real estate broker/realtor since 2010, working with clients all over western North Carolina to help them sell or buy homes. She is familiar with not only the beautiful neighborhoods all over Asheville and Buncombe County, but with many other western North Carolina communities. In addition to her work as a real estate broker, Sybil has a separate business, Southeastern Preservation Services, which focuses upon historic preservation. This business, which she has owned and operated since 1987, assists property owners and developers with preparing National Register nomination reports and working through the design guidelines required for the investment tax credit program for historically designated properties. The two complementary professions have made Sybil extremely knowledgeable in assisting property owners with learning about and understanding historic properties, but also with the ins and outs of buying or selling both older and newer homes. She is very familiar with many historic neighborhoods and properties, and loves to give new clients a tour of the area to see what is available and what might suit their interests and individual budgets.
Sybil’s philosophy is “Buying or Selling, I’ll be there every step of the way”. Not just in writing a listing agreement, or contracting to buy a house, Sybil will work hard for every client to market, sell, or wind through the steps and maze of paperwork required to get to closing.
