My husband and I were first time home buyers new to Asheville. We didn’t know anyone out here, so we asked our mortgage loan officer for agent recommendations and chose Nick Hinton out of the bunch after seeing some great reviews for him online. Judging from my own experience, those reviews were well deserved! Nick and his assistant Renée were invaluable to our search. They were prompt and patient, responding to our questions and concerns as people new to the process, and it was clear they were experts. He was also quick to show up for viewings, which put us at ease. Nick came through with excellent recommendations for specialists when it came time for inspections, and a contractor who could answer some questions we had about modifying the property we hoped to purchase. The people here are also great to work with. When you talk to them, you feel they really care about making sure you find a house or property that checks the boxes and one that makes you happy. And when it came time to make the bid, we followed Nick’s advice and landed our dream home in this wild and competitive market. We’re glad Nick is committed to not just building but maintaining relationships with his clients because he really is a priceless resource!
