Happy Clients Say It All.

“We started with Walnut Cove Realty when we first came to the area in 2009. I had dealt with realtors all over the country, looking at different properties, and I got a sense there was something a little different about how they operated. They were on the premises. There wasn’t a lot of pressure. They were very knowledgeable about the property itself. They knew the Asheville area and the local communities. Dealing with them wasn’t the same as dealing with an ordinary realtor who is trying to sell you a property. Walnut Cove Realty is selling you a lifestyle, and they give you a lot of input, so it was very comforting for us. We had a good feeling about the community and kind of knew eventually we would probably get here. Walnut Cove Realty was involved with everything. We just had to get here ourselves, and have a mover bring our stuff.”

— The Rodbells, Home Buyers

“We were fortunate enough to get Josh as our realtor. He was wonderful—showed us the community and the golf course. We looked at lots and houses. He didn’t stop at anything to get us what we wanted. Walnut Cove Realty understood what we wanted. He didn’t push something that he wanted us to have. He allowed us to dictate to him what we wanted. He did a great job of finding homes that fit that bill, and we found one. It’s more than business. It’s really evolved into friendship.”

— Randy, Home Buyer

“Walnut Cove Realty helped us with so many aspects of the building process and acclimating here. Our realtor took us to see the properties. There were only 4 in our price range, so we decided to build a house for the first time. He pointed us in all the right directions and helped along the way with the title company, finding insurance, and all the little details. We were texting and on the phone with him all the time, asking questions, and we never felt like we were bothering him.”

— The Lewises, Property Buyers
