Chip found us a dream house in Mountain Brook on a stream near downtown Black Mountain, the coolest little town in all of NC. This was not easy with little inventory coming up due to high demand. All went very smoothly. We are deeply grateful to Chip. I might add appreciative of some nice presents when the deal closed. Thanks Chip

Low pressure realtor who really knows the market. He listened to my goals and objectives and didn't try to sell me something that wasn't a match. Chip offered timely information and suggestions that proved very helpful in the selections of my full-time home and several rental houses. He and his staff is very responsive, and every interaction was positive. I would definitely work with him again!

Chip is excellent: 5 star.
As a builder, I have worked with Chip and his associates over fifteen years. All my experiences have been positive and profitable. Chip has a deep understanding of the Black Mountain/Buncombe County real estate market that has helped me correctly price and position the homes I’ve sold with him. The large level of seasonal rentals they manage enables them to have early exposure with potential buyers that might desire my style of new homes. Charlie Sparks The Black Mountain Bungalow Company
Chip was the consummate professional. Ours was a complicated purchase involving several structures on the property. As a result the due diligence process was difficult and involved. We had multiple inspections and follow up with numerous professionals to clearly define the issues turned up by the inspections. Chip drew on his experience and resources in the community to pull all the pieces together in a timely manner. This was critical as we were operating from a distance. We had all our [...]

Chip and his assistant, Robin, were very professional and personable. They took care of all necessary permits and connected me with other professionals to complete the transaction. With their help it was a problem free purchase.
A true professional and all around great guy. I have really enjoyed working with him.
