Agent Bernadette Merriman


I am no stranger to Brevard, NC - a hidden gem tucked away in Western North Carolina. I transplanted my roots here 15 years ago to attend Brevard College. I immediately fell in love with the incredible hills, natural resources, recreational opportunities, and culture of the area. Throughout my college tenure, I never once questioned that I had found the place that I would forever call home. My unbridled enthusiasm for the outdoors, mountain biking, and exploring has given me a unique perspective and vast knowledge of the Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville area.

Whether you're looking to buy, sell, or invest in a home in Western North Carolina, I want to work for you and help you tackle your own adventures in this rich environment. With my resources and knowledge of the area coupled with my enthusiasm and dedication, I will listen to your needs, focus on the details, and guide you along your journey.


"Bernadette was more than just an excellent agent during our over 18-month search for a home in the mountains. She guided us on many "adventures" as we worked our way through just about every mountain community in western North Carolina. We had a lot of fun along the way and ended up with the perfect home. We also found new friends with Berne and her lovely daughter. I would strongly recommend using her if you are looking for a place in the area."

-Richard Back

"Bernadette is an incredible realtor! She is so knowledgeable, had my back the entire time, and made sure I got the best deal possible."

-Lauren Morgan

"Our experience with Looking Glass Realty and especially with Bernadette Merriman was amazing. I don't think we would have had the patience to get to closing without her expertise and knowledge. It was a very difficult purchase with many obstacles for which she always had a solution. We are grateful for everything she did to help us fulfill our dream of owning a beautiful piece of North Carolina property! We couldn't and don't think we would have done it without her and the team at Looking Glass Realty. Many Thanks!!"

-William Whittaker

"Bernadette is a fantastic realtor. She made our first home buying experience smooth, and we could tell she wanted our best interest along the way. I am very thankful to have used her during this life-changing event. She also was quick in response and very thorough in providing the information necessary for new homeowners so that we didn't feel clueless with such lingo and legal knowledge. Thank you Looking Glass Realty for having such a great realtor. Thank you, Bernadette, for all of your help!"

-Elizabeth Orvis

"My husband and I entered the market as buyers with very specific (and fairly lofty) needs, and Bernadette met those needs time and time again. We worked intensively with her for close to three months to find the perfect property for us, and she maintained incredible communication with us and other team members of the buying process. Bernadette is personable, savvy, attentive to details and goes above and beyond in more ways than I can list here. Buying a home is a stressful process, but somehow Bernadette made it smooth, stress-free and even fun! We couldn't be happier with our experience and the home that we've found thanks to Bernadette. We recommend her highly to anyone in search of their dream home in WNC!"

-Rob and Kendra Lilley

"Bernadette was such a delight to work with, even as I began my search as just a casual interest in the area. She was always happy to answer my questions and provide the information above and beyond even though I was "just curious" at the time and then pointed out a property to me that fit all my criteria which did not come up in searches since the listing agent used an incorrect address. Her knowledge of the area was key in this, and she helped me through multiple rounds of negotiations both in terms of knowledge of the market and area and assistance in my decisions. She made a somewhat unusual negotiation/due diligence situation very manageable (especially from afar) and was great to work with! She caught other things I would not have seen and her experience was invaluable in multiple instances."

-Haley Beaupre

"Bernadette was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was quick to respond to our needs in the house hunt and super helpful in doing sleuth work in finding out details on homes we were interested in. Once under contract she was very organized and made sure everything happened in a timely fashion that led us to a quick closing date. She helped us navigate buying a house out of state--everything from helping with explaining different laws in NC real estate, giving us contacts for local service providers, etc., and meeting folks at the house to get inspections set up when we couldn't be there. Would highly recommend her for a flawless buying experience!"

-Bejan Saeedi & Brittney Henderson

"Really enjoyed working with Bernadette and Jamie. Both ladies were very helpful and answered all the questions we ever had. Bernadette understood what we were looking for and made it her mission to be available and meet us for all showings. I highly recommend using her for your next home purchase."

-Kristy Harvell

"Bernadette Merriman and the Looking Glass Realty team rocked it! We are busy remote people looking to move into the area, and Bernadette communicated often and effectively, helped us find the best home in the area for us. Throughout the closing process Bernadette, coordinated and communicated to ensure that things went smoothly! It was a huge help being so busy and not physically in town to work with inspectors and engineers. Very happy customers!"

-Kirk Elder

"Looking Glass relators are an absolute delight to work with. I highly recommend Bernadette Merriman. She is an expert in her field on all counts and holds your best interest as her priority."
