Midwesterner by birth, Southerner at heart! I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio but quickly fell in love with the South while attending the University of Tennessee. It was there that I met my husband Jonathan, an Asheville native, and found the mountains calling me home where we have now resided for the past 15 years. From my work experience with a local Real Estate Attorney to my family’s personal real estate endeavors I have a vast knowledge of both the market and the area. I absolutely love working with others and will always provide my client’s top notch service with a smile. When I’m not working you will find me at the gym, on the golf course or traveling with Jonathan and our two boys.

Laura Alonso


Helping people and making complex subjects easy to understand is my mojo. I value honesty and transparency and believe that knowledge is the pathway to making good decisions. As a Real Estate Agent, I look forward for the opportunity to help you find or sell your home by making your experience as easy and joyful as possible. Born and raised in the tropics, I wanted to experience the change of seasons. I went to college in Boston but after the biggest blizzard they had had in over 50yrs and chilled to the bone, I ran to the beautiful beaches of South Florida to thaw out. Although the ocean is in my nature, the mountains call to my soul. So 16yrs ago I made my move to Asheville where I bought and sold my first home and recently bought a new home surrounded by forest and mountain views. In my free time I like to hike and explore the vast nature that surround us. And in the summer, I seek water holes to soak in. I’m also a foodie and Asheville and the surrounding areas have an array of exceptional places to choose from. It would be my pleasure to show you what Western North Carolina has to offer and help you find the home where you love and play.

Luke Perisich


License Number: 339032

Have you always thought how great it would be to have a builder friend help you with your real estate needs? Here he is… His friends say he laughs at everything and wouldn't be able to talk if you tied his arms to his side. Luke has had a tool belt since he was 2 years old (no that is not a joke, ask him to show you the picture). He has been a licensed NC General Contractor since 2004. After years of building in Pennsylvania, the last 18 years were spent building custom homes and light commercial projects on the coast of NC. What better way to PIVOT than being able to provide almost 35 years of construction knowledge and experience to his real estate clients. Those years include a broad range of projects from a golf community amenity center to a plethora of homes including entry level to one-of-a-kind luxury homes. Oh, and he's torn homes down and rebuilt them as well as handled renovations in high-rise condos. Those are just some of the projects that quickly come to mind. Travels for hurricane construction relief work and safety training for volunteers are intertwined as well. Are you ready to buy or sell? Give him a call. Just be ready to laugh and have a great time doing it. You'll see.

As a Henderson County native and lifelong resident of this beautiful area that has also traveled all over the country during my professional career, I know that there is no place like the WNC mountains to call home! I am blessed to have been able to experience life with so many people and build the relationships that I have in this area. I am a proud husband, father, and grandfather. I reside in the Edneyville community of Henderson County where I also have a working sheep farm. When I’m not assisting clients with Real Estate, I love to enjoy our great outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing or just spending the day working around the farm. I have a background in Maintenance Management and Consulting, industrial and residential maintenance and construction, and farming. My desire is to partner with and utilize the experience I have gained to serve and assist others as they make what is typically one of the biggest decisions of their life. It would be my pleasure to be a part of your home buying journey!

Monica Rousseau

Principal | Broker


Principal Broker of Realty ONE Group Pivot, Monica Rousseau, believes that when you come from a place of gratitude, it will ultimately change your life. “When you change what you are thinking, your life will change,” she says. “You can’t change without changing your mind; the great thing is that you are in control of what you think.” As the owner of two very successful Realty ONE firms in Asheville and Hendersonville, Monica is a manifestation of her statement. “I’ve never been afraid to make a mistake,” she shares. “And I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I don’t think you can be successful or grow without being willing to make mistakes.” An Asheville native, Monica is a graduate of Clyde A. Erwin High School and UNC Asheville. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Economics and eventually completed her degree in Education prior to getting into real estate. Education is the foundation of her business. She believes very strongly in educating her agents and making sure they have the knowledge they need to succeed. “Educating them makes for a smooth transaction on both sides,” she explains, adding that she wants to create an environment where her agents feel excited and inspired to come to work. In the future, she says she wants to expand Realty ONE throughout other areas of Western NC and partner with agents who align with the firm’s values. Outside of real estate, Monica has raised a tight-knit family of five, with three daughters and two sons. She says, “My children are my priority. I continue to keep them first, because they are the best thing I’ll ever do. I have tried hard to include them in the business, and it has been amazing getting to share this journey with them every day.” “My journey has just been so awesome,” Monica says, “to have met so many people that have made me better, and that I have learned from, and that’s what I hope to provide to those I have the privilege to work with.” As a successful entrepreneur, Monica is always looking to give back. She is deeply involved in Asheville’s business building and non-profit causes. She has helped expand various entrepreneurship and small business programs through the Area Chamber of Commerce. She is particularly proud of her work for WomanUp, a program hosted by the Chamber that connects up-and-coming female entrepreneurs in the Asheville community. She also passionately supports Safelight, a non-profit focused on helping survivors of interpersonal violence. Monica shares her mother was the most influential person in her life, donating a room in her honor at the new Safelight facility. Fundamentally, Monica believes “we all have intrinsic value, and we’re all here for a purpose. Together, there is nothing we can’t do.” With Monica’s giving spirit and driven nature, she is a beacon of hope and inspiration for entrepreneurs in Western North Carolina and beyond.

Paula Anthony


License Number: 326263

I was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida and although my husband and I love the water, the mountains were calling us, so 6 years ago we decided to make Asheville, NC our home! We fell in love with the beauty of the mountains, the vast outdoor activities, the vibrant downtown & eclectic restaurant scene, the lively art and music scene, but most of all the friendly, happy people. People do just seem happier here. Best of all, I finally got to experience the seasons! My professional life has always been people and service focused. Prior to entering real estate, I spent nearly a decade as an executive director of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. After starting our family, I decided to focus more on our investment properties and rental business. This is where I discovered that I have a passion and talent for finding properties in great locations, seeing their true potential and envisioning the possibilities they offer. I have a love for people and strive to help others through active listening, building trust, and maintaining an open and honest dialogue. Buying and selling a home can sometimes feel overwhelming, but I am here to help you every step of the way. I treat each transaction as if it were my own and will ensure that your best interests are my top priority when finding you the perfect home or finding you the perfect buyer. My design and vision skills come in handy when staging a home to prepare for a sale or helping you see that diamond in the rough. When I am not helping clients fulfill their real estate dreams, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, exploring new areas to hike or places to eat, running with my golden retriever lab mix, yoga, biking, paddling the rivers, skiing and cooking.
