About Us

Candy Whitt & Associates - Your Home Team

Your WNC real estate team

The name Candy Whitt is synonymous with excellence in real estate in Western North Carolina. From the very first time you meet Candy and her WNC Home Team, you quickly realize that there’s something different about these realtors.

When the team tells you they’re driven by customer service, it’s not just idle talk. Candy Whitt & Associates takes customer service to another level. They do it all—from removing furniture left behind in a vacant residence to crawling underneath homes in order to remedy inspection checklists—no task is too big or small for this jeans-wearing, customer-driven crew. They are, without a doubt, in a league all their own.

Meet the Team

Candy Whitt

Hi, my name is Candy Whitt, and I appreciate your visit to our website.

I am a fifth-generation native of Western North Carolina, and I look forward to sharing our mountains with you. It is almost impossible to become jaded when surrounded by all this beauty.

Asheville and Hendersonville are beautiful towns with colorful histories. Today both towns are known for their cultural diversity as well as their scenic beauty.

No matter what your background, you’re bound to find your “home in the sky,” and we would love to help you.

Cindy McGrayne

My first visit to Asheville was fifteen years ago. At that time I decided, “This is where I want to live”. Two years later I retired from my position with the State of Florida as an Environmental Engineer, and made the move! Every day, I marvel that I’m here in this this wonderful place.

After the move, I discovered my interest in Real Estate. I continued to look at listings just for the fun of it. So I decided to become a REALTOR®. When I’m not working with Buyers and Sellers, I’m hiking, gardening, or working on my latest artistic interest.

Whether you’re moving here for the first time, or selling an existing home, it’s important to find a REALTOR® with knowledge of the market, and a passion for helping you make the move. I’m dedicated to helping my clients every step of the way. Let’s work together to get you to the closing table!
