Jerrita was a pleasure to work with. She was very accommodating to all our questions and concerns while searching for and finding our Mountain escape. Even after the sale she has been very helpful and friendly. She has our recommendation as a top Realtor!

We purchased a home from Ashe High Country Realty eight years ago. When we decided to sell that home and look for a new one, we knew we would be in good hands with April Weaver Taracido as our realtor. Not only did we need to find and purchase a new home but also sell our current one. I knew we would be needing a lot guidance as the market has been difficult to navigate. The whole process appeared daunting and stressful to us. Luckily, April is as cool as a cucumber and immediately took all the stress off my shoulders. She listened to what we wanted, worked with our schedule, and answered every question we threw at her, which were in the hundreds. I applaud her amazing level of patience. April kept in touch at all times, pointed out what we needed to know, what was next and how to plan for it. She kept every detail organized and on track. She was able to arrange any inspection, survey and utilities. Being a local she knows the town and people like the back of her hand. Anything you need she has the resources to assist you. The home she found for us fits us perfectly. I never thought we would own such a beautiful home and April is the reason we were able to acquire it. We then had to sell our little cabin, which was bittersweet for me. April had it listed and sold, start to finish in under 30 days! Again, she took the helm and made the process quick and seamless. I cannot stress enough the amount of expertise and professionalism you will experience with April as your realtor. Add to that the manner in which she makes you feel as if you just met your new best friend. She is someone you can trust with the qualification and experience to see you through your next real estate transaction.

My husband and I have been looking for a property in NC for quite awhile. When we found one that we were interested in, we contacted the realtor, April Weaver - Taracido. My sister who lives n the area, met April to do a first walk thru while I made flight arrangements for the next day. I met April at the house and there was an instant partnership made. She was prepared, knowledgeable about both the cabin and the area, warm and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better match for my personality and that of my very demanding husband. We ended up buying the cabin and she did everything she could to move the closing date up. Which she succeeded doing by 1 week! She is a pure delight! Thank you April for making this dream come true purchase so easy and stress free! You were with us every step of the way!

I worked with April Weaver-Taracido on a 45 acre sale in the West Jefferson area. It was a complex transaction, with four contiguous parcels with four different owners. She priced the property correctly and marketed it very well. We were on the market less than 90 days and had a cash buyer. April was very professional and stayed in touch the whole way making this process a win-win for everyone. I would HIGHLY recommend April to anyone. She’s the Best!

I've been working with April Weaver-Taracido over the past 2 months looking for a great place in the mountains. She has been amazing thru the entire process. From the day we met trying to dial into the right location and type of property for my family all the way until closing. April is very responsive and puts in all the extra effort to make sure you find the right home. Timing is everything and I am thankful that I was able to work with April to find our house. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, the builders, and has a good pulse on what the value of each place should be listed for. I highly recommend working with April and would recommend her to anyone that I know. She is a rock-star.

My wife and I just closed on a property in Deep Gap and we were referred to April Weaver-Taracido.  April was awesome through the whole process.  The first round we were looking just my son and I came up to look at some houses and she was super friendly and engaging with him as well.  I found another house on Zillow but didn't have my settings correct on Zillow so I would have missed the property we fell in love with and ended up buying.  April was awesome through the whole process and really went above and beyond for us.  She has also continued to be so helpful after the process.  If you are looking for a A++++++ Realtor you don't need to look any farther.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Jonathon Bradley! If you are looking for a knowledgeable, helpful and caring Realtor, look no further. We were very picky about our second home choice and Jonathon hung in there with us to the very end. He quickly zeroed in on what we were looking for and always made himself available for showings. I also had a lot of questions about the local area and mountain living and Jonathon's advice was always spot on. In short, Jonathon provides excellent service and that can be a hard thing to find these days. Thank you for helping us find our dream home!!

This was our first time selling a home and Jonathan Bradley made it so efficient and easy on us. It is hard to trust a random person with your biggest assets but Jonathan was always prompt with replies/letting us know anything new and was knowledgeable about any questions we had. We couldn’t have had a better first time home selling experience!

There are many very good real estate agents to choose from, and we’d like to shout from the rooftops: April Weaver-Taracido is a phenomenon! We were without an agent when we began looking for a home in what felt like a challenging moment. Then we connected with April as our agent and WOW! Everything clicked into place with ease. She has that special spark to make a situation come alive with momentum and brought her myriad of skills and knowledge to the search and situation. She is as professional as she is kind, savvy, and organized. We were not local to the area and with April’s extremely top-notch superstar skills, we navigated the entire process seamlessly. When I say she went above and beyond to ensure we were in the loop and equipped with the best amount of information to make an offer and proceed forward, I’m truly not kidding. She is an abundant wealth of knowledge. And moreover, she is a deeply thoughtful human whose commitment to her clients and profession is evident in every interaction we’ve had. We are beyond grateful for everything she did to help us with the purchase of our dreamy mountain getaway, and I wish we could clone her so everyone could work with a real estate agent as phenomenal as April is. Thank you!!!

We recently started working with Jonathan Bradley to one day purchase a 2nd home and so far it has been a GREAT experience. He has been super responsive to texts, emails etc. and he was able to answer every question we've had (quickly). Highly recommend this realty to everyone and especially Jonathan!!

April Taracido is hands down the best Agent I have ever worked with! I would highly recommend her to anyone, she goes the extra mile. She is very knowledgeable and professional. If you are selling or buying a home she is the one to work with, she was constantly there every step of the way. We had a unexpected situation arise with our house when we were trying to sell and she worked her tail off to get everything possible done to get our house sold. Our house is now sold and I couldn't have ever imagined trying to do all that on my own. Honestly without her I don't think our house would have closed in the timeframe we needed. She is so kind and hard working. Thank you again April for all your help in our situation, we are so thankful we had you as our agent. April is THE BEST.

HIGHLY recommend April Weaver-Taracido!! She made the home buying process as seamless as possible. We are not from the area and it was her knowledge and expertise of the area where we were looking which ultimately led us to decide on purchasing our new home that WE LOVE. The negotiation process can be stressful but April handled so much on our behalf, that it went seamlessly....The process of getting numerous inspections and everything needed for closing can be extremely overwhelming but with April as our agent, she made sure everything was scheduled and completed throughly and timely. At times through the entire process I believe that without April’s knowledge, professionalism, thoroughness and kindness. I’m not sure our home purchase would have come to fruition. April Weaver-Taracido is the best. We can't thank her enough! Also, the day after closing, I got very sick and not being from the area and not knowing anyone to ask about where to go for treatment was scary. That is when I thought of April. Again, April was there for me. She provided me information on medical facilities and even volunteered to pick me up if I needed. Great real estate agent and a wonderful human being. She will certainly be my go-to for any real estate needs.

Jonathan Bradley was our agent during our recent purchase of property in Ashe County. He did a great job of coordinating all the other stakeholders on our behalf. From his rational assessment of properties in Ashe County to his quick responses to our many questions; his calm demeanor and professionalism helped us stay grounded during the whole process. This was particularly on display during the due diligence process where his knowledge and local contacts helped provide valuable feedback to support our decision. Jonathan was a pleasure to work with from our first contact through the purchase of our property. We will continue to use him as a resource. Mike and Kathleen Hanson

Jonathan Bradley is the best! Always accessible, we always knew when showings were occurring and we received the report soon after. He even checked on our house when we were out of town. His beautiful photos always enhanced our home and property. We relied on his advice and knew he had our best interests at heart. We heartily recommend Jonathan and have only happy memories of our time with him.

by Gene Moore

Jonathan is not just a realtor. He is a trusted friend. As I have gone through the process of looking for a buyer and then selling my property I have learned that trusting the advice that Jonathan gives is a wise thing to do. He knows his business and he conducts himself professionally and personally in a way that builds confidence and trust. I would gladly advise anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell their property to involve Jonathan in that endeavor.

Tara Warner did an excellent job selling our home in Laurel Springs. She was on the ball from the first time we met her. She always communicated with us quickly. She is hard working, professional and friendly. We would certainly recommend her. This is our second time working with Ashe High Country and we were pleased again.

Jonathan Bradley was a pleasure to work with from our first contact with him through the sale of our property.

We were given Jonathan Bradley's name as reference by Ms. Miller. We have been looking for property for several years with different agents. Jonathan has been by far the most diligent, most helpful, knowledgeable and persistent agent for the type of property we were seeking to purchase. He found the dream house for us with the amenities we were looking for. During the process of negotiating and closing he has proven to be invaluable. He gave us answers to all of our questions and communicated with the sellers during the process. We have been dealing with many realtors in our current business and we consider him one of the best.

This is the second time that I worked with April and Ashe High Country Realty and it’s the second I gave a 5 star review. I’d give 6 if I could. This was a challenging closing and throughout the process April was always on top of things. She provided clear guidance on issues, always responsive and does her job honestly and professionally at all times. April and Ashe High Country are the best firm in the high country.

April worked patiently with us finding a mountain home for over 6 months. At all times, she was a delight to work with. Her dedication, attention to detail and diligence was extraordinary. She really knows the local real estate market and understands people. We found her to be a tireless professional and trusted guide in the entire process and we made a lifelong friend as well.

We had an extraordinary experience with Jonathan Bradley during the sale of our home in the NC mountains. We were very impressed from the first day until the end. Jonathan was very knowledgeable of the area and surrounding areas of where our property was located. He made us feel very safe and we knew right away we were in very good hands. His expertise, advice, honesty, energy and positivity made everything easier for us as customers. We definitely highly recommend him.

Jonathan Bradley was our real estate agent, and we couldn't be happier with the level of service he provided. We've been looking to purchase a mountain home for almost 3 years, and worked with a couple of other agents prior to Jonathan. His ability to really listen and ask good questions, coupled with a lot of patience, really helped guide us along the journey. Jonathan was easy to work with, always prompt with responding, and generally a good dude who we enjoyed partnering with. We are thankful to Jonathan for his awesome service and will point anyone we know in his direction if they are looking for real estate in the area.

Maxine Lane of Ashe High Country realty has been a joy to work with. From our first viewing of the property on Kindrick Mt to our closing and beyond she has helped every step of the way. We live 8 hours away and Maxine was able to help us long distance with all the paperwork and inspections. Once we purchased, Maxine gave us advice for local service people, great restaurants and other tips that helped us settle in. Because of health issues we had to sell our property recently. Once again Maxine went above and beyond what anyone would expect of their realtor. She made the reselling so much easier because we already know her and know the quality of her customer care.

We bought land in July 2022. April went above and beyond to help us. Very honest and knowledgeable of the market and process. Would definitely recommend her. April worked really hard to get us our dream property in the mountains. Worked so many hours for us and we really appreciate her.

Jun 13, 2022

We have purchased and sold several homes throughout NC and in all of our dealings, we have never, ever met anyone as honest, reliable, and helpful as April. We have bought quite a few homes with her and I would never recommend anyone else. She's definitely a 10 star.

Jun 13, 2022

It's a shame that these ratings top out at 5. Adjective-fest coming for April: tireless, relentless, diligent, persistent, kind, a TRUE advocate for the property that we purchased. Without question, we would not own our slice of mtn life without her knowledge, guidance, patience and just never give up attention to detail. There are not enough big words to describe her, so we just now call her our friend. The Barefoots

If you want a realtor who will go the distance and attend to every single detail, then April Weaver-Taracido is your person. She is an absolute rockstar. She works tirelessly and always has a pleasant demeanor. All the qualities you want in a realtor, she possesses: competence, integrity, diligence, approachability, wisdom, patience, kindness….the list goes on! We are grateful for her guidance traversing a home purchase in this chaotic market and couldn’t have had a better person to help us achieve our goal.

April Weaver-Taracido is Amazing! She is very knowledgeable, honest, supportive and professional.

by Mark Brennan

Apr 1, 2022

April was a pleasure to work with and did a great job through the entire process. She was very proactive in our search and communicated constantly. Once we decided to make an offer she guided us through the entire process, making sure everything was done in our best interest. She has lived in the West Jefferson area her entire life so she is intimately familiar with the entire region as well as having numerous contacts for any services needed before or after closing. April also goes the extra mile for you. For example, as we were finalizing all the details for closing she felt the final reading on the propane tank did not seem right. She made a special trip to the property, photographed the tank gauge and the new reading saved is about $400. That’s what April does. You can’t go wrong working with her, and spending time with her was very enjoyable.

April Weaver-Taracido is a gem! We have never worked with an agent who worked so hard for us, and was soooo honest and forthright. She really understood what we were looking for, and helped us navigate the difficult offer and due-diligence process in this complicated, fast-moving market. We found April to be real professional who we could trust. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience.

We recently bought a home in Todd NC and we were connected to Kim Hurley. Don't know where to begin to describe how happy we were with her as our realtor. She was absolutely awesome in every way from finding our new home, answering all of our continuous questions, making sure our home was just the way we wanted it. She was extremely kind, efficient, coordinating seamlessly between us and our builder. There are just not enough positive words to express our satisfaction with Kim. I have moved over 20 times in my life and I can honestly say I have never had a realtor as good as Kim. Truly feel blessed she was our realtor.

April Weaver-Taracido was a pleasure to work with! She listened carefully to what we were looking for, quickly connected us to two properties to look for and then was ON TOP of every detail along the way. It felt like we really had an advocate looking out for our interests right through the closing. She took responsibility for things that got a little complicated and smoothed everything out, found vendors we needed to complete the due diligence phase and got us to the closing table in 40 days -- a true compliment in this market!

Cindy recently sold our cabin in Stonebridge and went well above and beyond the call in marketing our cabin and dealing with the various issues and challenges that inevitably arise during a sale. We appreciate her handling the cabin during our periods of absence, checking the cabin following showings and keeping us informed of schedules. Cindy followed up with each agent following their showings and kept us apprised of the feedback. The cabin sold quickly and her knowledge of the community and market was a big part of our successful sale. We would very strongly recommend her if you are seeking to sell your cabin or home.

by William and Diana Hamilton

Cindy listed our cabin and we could not have been more happy with the entire process and outcome. Cindy has an excellent understanding of local market conditions, did a great job in the listing and provided wonderful assistance through the entire process.

We decided to buy a vacation house in the mountains and had the pleasure to work with Jonathan Bradley. He was awesome! He not only helped us figure out what location would be best for us, he took the time to understand our needs for the home, was quick to sort through the market and set up home tours for us. We live 2 1/2 hours away from the mountains, so Jonathan ensured every trip up was the best use of our time and he was able to answer all our questions so we could make the best decision for our family. We closed last week on our new home and we couldn't be happier! Thanks Jonathan we couldn't have done it without you!

We have had the great fortune of working with Kim Hurley and Ashe High Country Realty on our property in Todd. Not only do we commend Kim for her expertise in evaluating the market, effective marketing of the property, professionalism and hard work, but also for going and beyond in helping us.

Our time with Kim was somewhat brief as we had been privately looking for a couple of years when we ran across one of her listings. From the 1st phone contact to closing day our time with her was informative, professional and most enjoyable. We felt like family from the beginning and all of her ideas, contractor references & follow up were 'spot-on' & timely. THANKS for a great experience !

We would highly recommend Cindy Wiehrs with Ashe High Country Realty. She was very attentive to our needs and detail oriented. She spent a lot of time explaining the entire process and made sure we were comfortable before we signed any paperwork. Cindy did a wonderful job taking pictures and creating a layout for the MLS. She also was aggressive with bringing potential buyers to view our cabin and sold it in 2 weeks. Cindy was quick to respond any time we had questions. We consider Cindy an excellent real estate professional.

Jerrita was extremely cordial and very professional. She made the entire buying process almost care-free. She catered to our needs and had the patience of a saint in transporting us around from property to property over several weekends. She listened attentively and focused on our needs which resulted in finding a house that not only met our needs but surpassed our expectations. In our opinion she has real estate knowledge and acumen second to none. She has raised the bar in her profession and will be a tough act to follow. Ashe High Country Realty is very fortunate to have her on their team. We consider her a good friend!

My wife and I recently purchased a second home in West Jefferson. We worked with Michelle Handler for several months on this process. Michelle is a consummate professional and is both patient and knowledgeable. Michelle's years of experience and guidance helped us find the perfect home for us. She kept us informed of purchase opportunities and information we would need to make a sound decision. Michelle supported us thru the entire process as if she were buying the home herself. We not only purchased a new home, we made a wonderful friend in the process. We give Michelle our highest recommendation!!

When we made the decision to look for an investment property in the High Country, we found Kim Hurley, and we are so glad that we did! From day one she made us feel very comfortable. Kim is very knowledgeable about the area and after 8 months of unselfishly giving up many of her Sundays, helped us find the perfect home. From signing the contract to the closing, she made everything so easy. Kim scheduled the inspections and communicated with our lender to ensure that we would close on time. She is truly the best that we have ever dealt with and she genuinely cares about her clients. Not only did we hire a fantastic realtor, we made a great friend!

Management, I listed and sold my home in Laurel Springs with your agent, Kim Hurley. Kim explained every step to us in this process. Including great feedback and constant communication, often with suggestions. She explained the steps from sign up and curb appeal suggestions, to contract, the negotiations process and right to closing. We sold our home in a better than an expected time frame with very satisfying results. Your agent exceeded our expectations in every way and is truly professional in her craft. 10/08/19 John and Lori Carpino

This was our first venture into the "second home market" and Kim Hurley was amazing. She was referred by a friend in the mortgage business, and we hit it off with her right away. Kim was absolutely committed to representing our wishes and needs. When we emailed her, she responded within 30 minutes-unfailingly. When we called her, she answered her phone. We have bought and sold six houses over the years and have dealt with many Realtors, and we know a good one when we find one. Since we were new to the area, Kim was also helpful with local recommendations from painters to restaurants. We were very pleased with Kim and will be calling her for our next mountain home purchase!

Greg was extremely helpful to my wife and I from the start to the finish of our home Listing and Selling Process. We always found Greg to be reliable, trustworthy, and a good listener while also being pleasant and courteous. He does what he says and says what he does, a trait I value in any relationship. Throughout the entire process we felt Greg had our best interests in mind and I would recommend him to friends or family without reservation. We will use Greg again for our next NC or VA High Country Real Estate Professional Services needs.

Greg Johnson is knowledgable and professional and worked to best meet our needs, in terms of finding a home that would be suitable for a couple close to retirement age.

We would highly recommend Greg Johnson as a realtor. From our first meeting with Greg, hiring him to be our realtor was an easy decision even though our property was in a neighboring county. From the beginning of our relationship, Greg was professional yet very personable. He listened to our opinions and how we saw the sale of our home progressing, but guided us to the more beneficial decisions based on the real estate market. We phoned Greg both during the week and the weekend, all times of the day and evening, and he was always available to assist us. He was in contact with us frequently to keep us informed. He helped us from the first day of the marketing process through the signing of the contract. Greg Johnson made a difficult process for us as sellers as easy as possible. We would readily hire him for any future real estate transactions!

I have had the pleasure of working with Kim Hurley for more than 10 years, as both a buyer and a seller. Always upbeat, Kim is thorough and proactive, knowledgeable and experienced. She doesn't let anything "fall through the cracks", and truly has her client's best interests in mind. Kim has been more than just a real estate agent. She has become a good friend. I would highly recommend Kim Hurley to represent anyone in a real estate transaction, without reservation.

We worked with Jerrita. She was with us every step of the way. She had patience with us in looking, exploring and visiting houses, including the one we purchased. We visited it 2 or 3 times before making the final decision. She was able to answer any questions we had, quickly. I am thankful we had Jerrita as our realtor. She even went out of her way and allowed us to borrow some equipment for our new house. Definitely made purchasing a house a breeze for us! We highly recommend her!

I just closed on a house the other day working with Mark Bower. His experience with home construction and knowledge of the Ash County area was so helpfull to me relocating from the Charlotte area. Mark happened to pick up the phone when I called back in May and since then I’ve went into three contracts 2 of which I declined because of issues that came up at inspection. Mark spent a lot of time with me and made it enjoyable at the same time steering me in the right direction, advising me and not giving up when I had to go back and search for homes. Im really glad I got to work with him and will continue to stay in touch with. Thank you, Jack McGill

Rita Perry Spicer was fabulous! I was an out-of-town buyer, which made everything a little more complicated and stressful. I couldn’t just drop what I was doing and drive 3 hours every time a house came on the market I wanted to see, or look at/handle things once I decided on a cabin. Rita was there for me every step of the way. She was patient while I was trying to decide on a home. She took pictures and previewed homes for me. She had everything organized when I came to town so we could see all the homes that interested me in one day. Once I found a cabin, I didn’t have to come back until closing. Rita handled coordinating all the inspections and due diligence items. She helped me understand the inspection report and negotiate repairs. She worked with my lender to provide the documents they needed. She kept things moving and made sure I did the things I needed to do. And she handled a few bumps in the road, such as having to extend the closing date. I couldn’t have made it through the process without Rita. She was a godsend. If you need a realtor, I highly recommend Rita and Ashe High Country Realty.

Jerrita helped us look at numerous houses before we finally found "the one." Her knowledge of the area, the buying and renting market, what repairs might cost, and her contacts are amazing. My mom was a Realtor, so I am not easily impressed, but Jerrita sure knows her stuff!


Sep 3, 2018

Jerrita handled the sale of our cabin in Ashe county last year and did an excellent job. So of course we continued to use her services when we were looking for another property. We kept changing our minds as to what we were looking for as well as area. From cabins to single family to condos, in Ashe, Watauga and eventually Avery county which is where we finally bought. She is very professional, patient and reliable. We highly recommend her and the Company.

We purchased our place ~6 years ago through Michelle and Ashe High Country Realty. It was to be our long weekend get-away and future retirement home. Like life, retirement dreams/plans also change but we knew we wanted Michelle and Ashe High Country Realty to now handle the selling of our place. From first listing the property to completing the final paperwork at closing, total time was about five weeks. We still love everything about that area. When retirement actually happens, we will be contacting Michelle and Ashe High Country Realty first.

Kim Hurley was our agent when we sold our home in Ashe county. She was very professional, efficient, timely, and above all, she was always looking out for our best interest. We live in south Florida and Kim took on the responsibility of handling three separate incidents that needed immediate attention. From our home in Florida we were unable to deal with them, but Kim stepped up and successfully handled each one in a very timely fashion. We feel we would not have sold our home as quickly as we did except for the diligence of Kim doing whatever had to be done. Our evening updates from her were always a welcomed reassurance. In choosing an agent as our realtor, we interviewed three candidates. We chose Kim and are now forever grateful that we did so. If you need a great realtor, mine as well get the best .... choose Kim.

They know the area well listen to what we were looking for . They let us know of a cabin that was coming on to the mkt before it was even listed. My wife and I Were able to make a offer the first day it was listed. They worked with us and negotiated a good price for us.

We just closed on our new home in Lansing, Kim Hurley is our realtor and she is just outstanding, couldn't have asked for more. She met all our expectations and then exceeded them with being proactive, responsive and all around on top of our purchase process. Can't say enough good things about Kim and the service we received, this was the simplest buy we've had yet as everything fell together like clockwork. Kim is more than a realtor and now a friend that we have in the area. thanks

When we first met Suzanne she treated us as if she had known us for all our lives. We were looking for a property we couldn’t find and she dropped everything to come help us. After that we wanted her for our realtor. She was very patient and very helpful. See we didn’t know anything about what we were supposed to do. After a few property searches she found us the perfect one. She was always available when we needed her and she lead us through the whole process. I think we were blessed to find someone as excited for us as we were for ourselves. Thank you Suzanne from the bottom of our hearts.

errita did a great job and made my move to Ashe county a piece of cake! I received a timely support on all the steps and great advices from Jerrita, she was able right away to catch what I wanted so we were able to focus effectively on the house of my dream. In just 5 weeks we were able to find the house and get the closing done, she explained me every step of the process (I am a foreigner so I was not familiar with the US process). Jerrita enthusiasm and professional attitude were key to get the job done. Strongly recommended.

Our experience finding our piece of heaven was the best because of Greg Johnson. He was willing to answer all questions (no matter how small) and assist throughout the process in finding our new home. He was very patient on the long days of showing us houses, even the day there was a flooding rain we had to deal with. He was willing to research anything we asked and took the time to search out owners to ask about property adjoining properties we were interested in. This was by far the best experience we could have ever hoped for and it was because of Greg. We will be keeping in touch with him as now he is a friend and not just an agent.

Where do we start???? In 2008, we called five different realtors in Ashe County and left messages that we were interested in buying a house. Only one returned our call. Kim Hurley was the one that did return our call. I informed Kim that we would be coming up and if I remember correctly she cancelled personal appointments to meet with us. We rode and looked for three days!! Not once did she ever seem to tire of us. After those three days, we returned to the coast only to return in a couple of weeks. This trip was a success!! We found our dream vacation home. Kim has gone above and beyond her duty . Not only did she become our realtor, she has become a lifelong friend. We would trust KIm in any aspect of our lives. I believe Kim is one of the sweetest, most genuine people we have ever met. I'm sure we will miss our Ashe County home but I think we will miss our friends there even more. So in short, I would like to say "we love you Kim" and will continue to refer our friends your way!! Oops, can't forget Maxine!! Maxine has always been such a pleasure to talk to at the front desk. She has always been so friendly, kind and helpful too. You have some valuable employees at Ashe High Country Realty!! Thanks to everyone there for anything you did for us.

We had Kim Hurley assist us with a search for a riverfront home. She was amazingly patient with us as we looked at about a dozen homes. But more important than that, she was very honest with us throughout the search. It made us feel like we had an advocate and not just someone who was just trying to sell us a house. And now we have our awesome riverfront home on the New. Thank you Kim for everything!

Many thanks to Sophia (Lopez) for all of her help in finding and closing the deal on our perfect 2nd home in the mountains. Sophia has a great eye for value and is a knowledgeable and skilled realtor. We never felt pressured. Throughout the process Sophia responded quickly to all of our communications, coordinated all of the last minute inspections, and helped overcome a few last minute hurdles to ensure that we were able to close on time. . We would gladly work with Sophia again.

Thanks to Jerrita we have now found complete happiness in the mountains of Ashe County. We lived several hours away and Jerrita lined up several homes for us to view while in the area. Turns out we purchased the first home she showed us and we couldn't be any happier. She was very helpful throughout the whole process from beginning to end. She was knowledgeable of the home, neighborhood and area and was very helpful in arranging inspections, quick to respond and patient with all our questions. Thanks Jeritta for a job well done!

She helped us figure out our offering price, negotiating counter offers, and working through all the due diligence. She had great recommendations for local companies to do inspections and took care of anything we needed her to. In addition to all of this, her communication was excellent - she always responded when we had a question and kept us up to date. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy property.

Cindy Wiehr did a wonderful job of keeping our needs in mind and finding us a cottage that works perfectly for our family.

We recently closed on our very own little "slice of Heaven on Earth"!! We are so excited to make memories with our 3 young boys!! We began looking about a year and a half ago with Cindy Wheir at Ashe High Country Realty, she was so available and so patient with us as we made our journey through what seemed like hundreds of homes(even though it was a bit less lol) She even had patience when we ended up having to bring all 3 of our boys on some of the showings!! She volunteered to keep an "eye" on them while my husband and I had some quiet time to explore the properties. She was very detail oriented and was able to navigate us through the usual "hiccups" that can come along with negotiating and buying a new home. We are forever greatful for her help, her willingness to stick by us and keep us posted as new properties came available eventually led us to our very own special place. Thanks Cindy for what you did for us, and thanks for what you did for our growing family! The porch is always open with a seat for you !

Jun 20, 2017

I found Michelle and Mark to be totally professional. They did a good job of marketing my home and were able to sell it earlier than I had expected.

I worked with Michelle Handler to find a property in Ashe County......and found a great deal on a good location/site. Had it not been for Michelle's thoroughness, and after hours of efficient looking her saying, "I know we've seen a lot of land, but there is ONE more neighborhood I'd like for you to see", we would have never seen or found the lot that I wound up purchasing : ). My experience with Michelle and with Ashe High Country Realty was excellent. : ) - Dr. Jon M. Martin, Durham NC

Our transition from West Virginia to NC was easy because of Greg’s professionalism, integrity and attention to detail.

We really didn't make it easy for Rita Spicer-Perry and Ashe High Country to make our dream come true. We had an out-of-state sale, multiple properties, all kinds of exceptions to the banking rules and estates for sale with multiple interested parties and complicated land divisions. But Rita and team came thru with shining colors, unflagging enthusiasm and total professionalism. I would recommend them to anyone and especially out-of-state buyers, Rita and team really go above and beyond! Thanks Rita!

Wonderful team to work with. Great patience, always responsive to the many questions asked. I did feel though at times if I didn't ask certain questions whether some valuable facts would have not come up. "You don't know what you don't know...". At the end of the day would highly recommend the team. Jerrita was a pleasure to house hunt with.

I do NOT have the language to show my appreciation of the monumental efforts Maxine Lane gave us from day one, until this day today, AFTER the closing, where I am still being helped. We were a difficult set of clients, being 12 hours drive away from the area and if the logistics were not enough, our unusual situation made things more complicated. Maxine literally helped us from a personal side, as well as the highly professional side, going well beyond what would be expected of any agent in a contract. THANK YOU Maxine from the center of our souls to the molecules that make us who we are. We will never forget you or Ashe High Country Realty as long as we live. And thanks so very much for the patience you showed us even in the darkness. Which YOU always brought us back to the light. Every time.

We recently closed on a small home in Boone. Morgan Stansberry helped us in so many ways from setting up all of our inspections to even helping us after the closing with our HOA. Being out of town, it was a relief to have someone more than willing to help and go beyond our expectations. Though we had a small purchase, we were treated as if we had bought the best house in town. We highly recommend Morgan as your next realtor.

We worked with Kim Hurley on the purchase of our cabin in Fleetwood and closed in May, 2016. An owner of a cabin in West Jefferson, from whom we previously rented, recommended Kim. We could not have been more pleased with Kim's performance. From the search to the closing, Kim was top notch! Being a West Jefferson native, Kim's knows the area very well and at our request, showed us cabins in both Boone and the West Jefferson area, easily navigating the roads even during our first day of looking despite being surprised by a late spring snow with ice! She presented us cabins in our price range, without pressuring us to go above which was refreshing. We learned that prior to becoming a licensed realtor, Kim worked as a real estate paralegal. Kim's paralegal experience and realtor experience are a winning combination, making her more adept at contract preparation, legal ramifications, and the closing process. She was diligent with negotiations from contract signing, to due diligence, to close. Kim was very responsive during all phases - responding at all times as necessary to keep the deal moving in the right direction. Kim helped us fulfill a dream we've had for over 25 years, and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to fulfill their dream of owning a cabin in the High Country!

Michelle Handler and Jack Apple exceeded our expectations in helping us purchase the vacation home of our dreams. Being several hours away from our hometown, we relied on them to be our advocates and their knowledge of the area was most helpful. Our availability was limited and they accomodated our schedules so graciously. We have bought and sold houses before, but never a vacation property so there were additional steps that needed attention and every detail was addressed in a timely manner. We whole-heartedly recommend them!

We first met Mark at a land auction in 2007. We were impressed since Day One! We have used Mark on several occasions for both home and land purchases. Mark knows Ashe County inside and out. He is in the real estate business for the long haul. Mark began his career in real estate rental management for a large golfing community in Ashe County. Mark operated a successful modular home construction business for several years. Currently, Mark is both a licensed real estate Appraiser AND a licensed real estate Broker. All of those business life experiences translates to knowledge. And knowledge always helps to protect you from making a bad decision. We highly recommend Mark, if you are looking to buy or sell .

My wife and I recently closed on our first home in a much easier-than-expected process despite making everything happen within a short period of time while working full-time. Jerrita has been helping us since we moved to Ashe Co. and her advice/willingness to accommodate our fluctuating schedules has been invaluable and extremely appreciated. Prior to becoming homeowners, we rented through Ashe High Country Realty and any issues/concerns were always handled in a timely manner, and actually always the next day. Both our renting and buying experiences have been wonderful, so a well-earned 5 star rating from us! Thanks again Jerrita!

Mark was our realtor and went totally out of his way to accomodate us in the whole process. He met us at the location numerous times. Lynn and I had found the house on the internet and rode up to Ashe to just ride by and see what it looked like on the outside. We saw the sign with Mark"s name on it and just called him. Within 30 minutes, we met him at the house and was inside looking at the interior. We would refer anyone and everyone to Mark in the future for sales in Ashe . Thank you Mark

It didn’t take long after meeting Morgan to know that she was someone who listened and remembered. Taking every little comment into account, she searched and was able to show us properties, all over Ashe County and beyond, that conformed to our specifications. She also adapted quickly as, unfortunately for her, our “ideal” changed over the course of the three months that we were looking. Morgan was always pleasant and worked efficiently and effectively to address our vacation home desires without pressure. Her excellent working relationships with other agents, the Sellers (whom she also represented), and business personnel in the community facilitated positive negotiations, leading to a successful closing two months after our offer. We are in the home of our dreams in Todd and Morgan continues to play an important role in our transition. She has earned our trust, respect, and highest recommendation.

We recently purchased a cabin and are very pleased with our experience. Jerrita Roark made the whole process seamless. She was exceedingly patient with us. The search spanned several months and she was never pushy and always went the extra mile. I can't imagine our experience being any better. We both highly recommend Ashe Realty and Jerrita without reservation.

"Jerrita Roark and Michelle Handler have handled our real estate needs for the past several years, for our cabin in West Jefferson, NC. My husband and I were unsure if we should rent short term or long term so we turned to Jerrita and Michelle who explained in detail the pros and cons of both., and sharing what their other clients had experienced with rental properties. They were always professional, in their dealings with us and our conversations with them flowed so effortlessly! They made us feel like we had known them for years! Their combined years of experience helped in our decision, to rent long term. Michelle and Jerrita shared their decorating tips asked about making our cabin feel more like "home" by being budget friendly. Their ideas transformed the appearance of our cabin both inside and outside! Thanks ladies! We have just sold our cabin, and Jerrita and Michelle were with us every inch of the way! They expeditiously answered our e-mails and phone calls , and believe me, we had a ton of them . They methodically worked through several new documents we needed for selling our cabin. Once again, acting like true consummate professionals, they took all of these extra steps in stride. My husband and I cannot say enough of positive things about Jerrita and Michelle, but if you are looking for consummate professionals who can rent or sell your house, look no further."

"We could not be any more happier with the experience we had with Jerrita. She listed our property, sold and closed within 30 days. We were impressed with the way she coordinated everything that had to be done in such an expeditious manner. Her professionalism, experience and knowledge of the market sets her apart from most. I highly recommend Jerrita to anyone that needs to buy or sale a home."

From the very beginning, first introduction to Michelle Handler and Mark Bower, my husband and I felt completely comfortable with the team in handling the sale of our home. Michelle and Mark kept us up to date on showings and remarks from the showings, making suggestions where necessary to facilitate the appearance of the property to make it more appealing. Every suggestion paid off! Michelle and Mark were professional while also being extremely understanding and compassionate.with our family needs. Overall, the team of Handler and Bower were phenomenally superior to all previous real estate transactions that my husband and I have had over our lifetimes. We are extremely grateful and feel blessed to have been their clients.

We recently sold our house in Ashe County and Kim Hurley was our realtor. She was a pleasure to work with. She was efficient, professional and quick to respond. We highly recommend Kim for your real estate needs!

Michelle Handler worked with me over the course of four plus years from the first day we were shown the home we now live in. Regardless of a very slow market in our old location, and here in Ashe County she never gave up...which eventually worked in our favor!...Michelle's prowess as a realtor are obvious as her professionalism and knowledge have resulted in a dream come true for my family.

If you are looking for a home, land, vacation place, or business property in Ashe (and/or adjoining counties), the only agent you need is Kim Hurley. She is extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and is the "total package" as an agent. She listens, asks questions, and focuses on results which match your wants and needs (even if these items change during or as a result of your search).

Our experience working with Kim Hurley was superb!! We were out-of-town buyers and she absolutely looked out for our desires and best interests. She was very prompt, courteous, professional and fun to work with. She was with us every step of the way from the first day visiting homes to the final closing at the lawyer's office. She was by far the best real estate professional we have worked over many years. In fact, this was actually our ninth purchase over all those years. We would highly recommend Kim Hurley to anyone needing a realtor. She will treat you as if you are the most important person in the world!!

As an out-of-town property owner, I called on Julie Miller when I decided to list my Ashe County mountain land for sale. Julie was highly recommended by a friend who knew I would need experienced guidance. This friend had been pleased with the real estate services Julie provided and found her to be very conscientious and an artful negotiator. Julie helped me with thoughts on soil testing, septic permits and all aspects for making my property truly ready to list — and thus more appealing to potential buyers. She consistently stayed in contact with phone calls, emails and texts and always replied promptly to my questions. During negotiation, Julie’s knowledgeable advice helped provide a sales price that pleased me. She made such a difference in how smoothly the process went! Within a month from the MLS listing date with Julie, I had an offer and the sale completed in just a few weeks! I highly recommend Julie Miller and Ashe High Country Realty.

My wife & I were looking to buy a vacation property/rental in W. Jefferson area. We met Jerrita by renting thru Ashe Country Vacations. She spent the WHOLE week with us, showing us close to 20 homes/cabins. As our "deal" came to be, although it was VERY stressful, Jerrita was VERY Professional thru-out the entire ordeal. I would HIGHLY recommend A.H.C.R., AND would not hesitate to call them again IF our need arises. Thank you Jerrita & Maxine for your time well spent.

We wanted to buy a mountain house, but hadn't pinpointed an exact area yet. I think Morgan took us to every mountain in the state so we could get a feel for our options. She got to know us, and then previewed properties so that we wouldn't waste time seeing any that didn't meet our needs. We bought a house on Sugar Mountain last week and Morgan made the process as easy as it could be: she set up appointments with the home inspector, and then with contractors and other tradespeople to get estimates for repairs the inspector had identified. She helped us renegotiate the price based on needed repairs. She was available 24/7 - which I found out very early one morning when I couldn't sleep and sent her an email, expecting to get an answer in a few hours, but got it within 5 minutes! She wasn't ever pushy, even when it looked like the deal might not go through. When she didn't know the answer to a question, she found out quickly and let us know. I would absolutely recommend her .

Cindy Wiehrs was our realtor with Ashe High Country Realty and she was fantastic! She listened to our needs and found us the perfect cabin. Although she was a 'dual agent' she was fully transparent and took us through every step in the process. She gets highest marks for being knowledgeable, honest, and committed to making the purchase a pleasant and positive experience. She also has been very responsive to our many questions--not only during the weeks leading up to the closing, but afterwards as well. We feel very fortunate to have had Cindy as our realtor and look forward to her being our neighbor! We give her A++ in every category.

I was concerned about having one agent represent me and the seller, but Kim walked the fine line effortlessly and gets the highest marks for her professionalism and ethics. Even though it has been a while since closing, I can still email Kim with a question or referral and I get a quick response with qualified individuals and the best person for the job! Thanks Kim for all you have done for us and making our vacation home a dream come true!

My husband and I worked with Jerrita for over one year in locating a property to purchase in West Jefferson. Of all the realtors we have worked with over the years, Jerrita is by far the best! Jerrita is so professional , patient and courteous that I refer her to my businesscolleagues and friends who are also searching the area for a property. Jerrita is very knowledgeable about the area and the home buying process. I imagine that we may have been her "pickiest" buyers and not the easiest to work with but she was persistent, patient, knowledgeble, and responsive to our many calls and requests. We are thrilled with our home in West Jefferson and the service that we received from Jerrita. We have also used Jerrita's rental service to rent a home while we were looking and the service was oustanding. I would definitely recommend her for your real estate needs!

She's one in a million and hand held us through the many details of a move from out of state. Always courteous, friendly and professional. Her knowledge of the real estate market and the area right down to setting up contractor quotes was done with precision and perfect timing. She was always there to answer our questions and saw us through to becoming residents in the town we fell in love with several years ago. I recommend her and her company very highly. Without question you will be happy for choosing them with any of your real estate or vacation rental needs!
