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 [...]

We highly recommend Chip Craig. He knows the local market and will assist you from the listing until you close. We had a five star experience and Chip communicated with us throughout the entire process. His contacts with local attorneys and service providers proved invaluable.

Greybeard has helped my husband and I with our first home in Black Mountain, and then our second. In between we purchased a rental property. In every instance, Greybeard (Chip Craig, Owner) provided excellent service by listening to what we wanted, promptly responding to MLS listings and any of our questions, making the paperwork understandable and less arduous, and advising us about the area market. If we have any other real estate needs, we will definitely call on Chip or any of the Greybeard [...]

Greybeard is the very best! They purchased and sold my home for me, as well as managed it as rental property while I was away. I cannot say enough good about them. Superior service in every respect.
My wife and I decided on the Asheville NC area to retire to and Chip Craig of Greybeard Realty in Black Mountain NC was highly recommended to us by a friend who had used him. Chip proved to be a superb choice. He had a strong knowledge of the area and was patient, thorough and communicated well with us throughout the process. We ended up buying a new construction townhouse in Black Mountain and Chip and Greybeard Realty represented us well from start to finish. Without hesitation I would highly [...]

We live in Florida but were attempting to buy property in the Asheville area. My wife and I just walked into the office one morning while on a visit and Chip Craig was able to see us right away without an appointment. He was very friendly and very helpful. There were numerous obstacles along the way to buying our retirement property and we live 600 miles away, but Greybeard Realty was constantly acting on our behalf to move the process along. Everyone there, including his assistant Robin, were [...]

We love the little town of Black Mountain and decided it would be a great place to move to when we got ready to retire. We were looking for a home that we could age in place in and decided that we might want to build our own home to incorporate all those ideas. If you've ever tried to look for land on-line you know how challenging that can be. Chip Craig was the perfect resource for helping us. He listened to what we said we wanted and lined up a variety of lots to start looking at. When [...]
