Reese Lasher has been involved with real estate development throughout his professional career. Reese has overseen the developement of several local residential and commercial projects.

As an active citizen, Reese has "given back" to the local community through his leadership and hands-on involvement in civic and charitable organizations. He has served as Mayor of Weaverville from 1985 to 1991, chairman of Asheville's Bele Chere Festival and President of the National Association of Accountants of Asheville. He served as member of the Environmental Management Commission for the State of North Carolina, where he embraced many of the current trends in ecological living.

An early riser, Reese is often working at Crest Mountain before the rooster crows. Sunrises like this are one of the many reasons Reese enjoys his "job" so much.


Reese has lived in the Asheville area for over 50 years and his wife, Jan, is a true Asheville native. They are both graduates of Western Carolina University and have three grown children and seven grandchildren. When the Lashers are not playing golf, hiking or traveling, they are usually spending time with family or friends.

As an experienced developer, Reese understands the importance of a proper balance between maximizing views and preserving Crest Mountain's natural beauty. He will admit that he is guilty of "falling in love with the land." As a testament to their dedication to the community, Reese and Jan live on Crest Mountain also. Take some time to speak with Reese and you will quickly see for yourself that he is deeply dedicated to the success of Crest Mountain.

Zach Banks has been building homes in the Asheville area since 2002. Zach grew up on a local farm where he aquired an appreciation for hard work and common sense. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Zach began his career as part of a framing crew and worked his way up to becoming a fully licensed general contractor. Consequently, he understands the "nuts and bolts" of building a home. While these days his most useful tool is his computer, he still enjoys the feel of a hammer in his hand. When Zach is not working, he can be found spending time with his wife and young kids - perhaps on a hike, at a ball game or at church... and on really special days, Zach can be found fishing at Corner Rock Creek.
