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 [...]
Chip and his team did an excellent job from “soup to nuts” listing, negotiating and closing my land, especially in a “buyers land market” in Black Mountain. You won’t find a more professional real estate group than Greybeard in Western N.C. Thanks Chip! John Klutts
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 [...]
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 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
Chip and his staff are excellent! He kept me informed at all times and was very helpful and thorough. I plan to use him again.
We have worked with Chip Craig and Greybeard Realty for more than a decade. He has always been knowledgeable and extremely professional. His experience and advice have been invaluable in helping us attain our goals. My wife and I would highly recommend him and his colleagues at Greybeard Realty without reservation.
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!
From the very beginning of the sale of our property, Chip was unfailingly professional, courteous, and helpful far beyond what I would expect. Although it was not a short or simple sale, Chip knew how to handle every bump in the road and made the process seem easy. He communicated clearly and regularly. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
