What Black Mountain Residents Are Saying

Black Mountain, NC

My wife and I have worked with both Eddie and Jessica over the past couple of years - we bought a house with Jessica as our agent, then sold two houses with Eddie as our selling agent. We couldn't be happier - one of the houses that we sold was "complicated" to say the least...through multiple required renovations and over a year and a half of selling, Eddie stuck with us and was always available to help answer questions, give advice, or arrange for whatever was needed. Even more importantly to us, he was willing to do this for one of the most inexpensive houses in the market. He and Jessica both went above and beyond anything that I would have expected agents to do, and we're absolutely in their debt. Frankly, now that we've moved away from the area, I think that they're going to make any future agents look lazy by comparison. Good problem to have. If you're in the area, I can't recommend them highly enough - just call them.

I cannot say enough good things about working with my agent Eddie Colley. Eddie is personable, professional and extremely respectful. He listens well and is extremely hardworking. When he says he will do something, he does it in spades. His assistant Morgan Platt is similarly impressive. Morgan is professional, always available to answer a question, and really keeps the process moving and on track. Honestly, they are an unbeatable team and I recommend them highly and without reservation

We have bought and sold a few houses over the years through real estate agents, and we have never been happier than experiencing the services of Monica Krider. Our recent home purchase in Waynesville was made even more difficult by the fact that we lived in Florida and were relocating to this beautiful area. We met Monica on one of our due diligence trips, and she was absolutely incredible to work with. She went up and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were 100% delighted with our new house. Her communication was incredible and she worked extremely hard to help us make the transition as stress-free as possible. We heartily recommend Monica to anyone who is planning to buy and/or sell their house and wants the most top-notch service ever!

"Monica assisted us in buying a property sight unseen. She showed us the property via FaceTime and took the time to go over all the details. In a multi- offer situation, she pushed to get ours accepted. Throughout the process she was a step ahead and pushed the process through any hurdles ensuring  the closing happened on time. We are very grateful for her help in getting us our dream home!"

"Monica was amazing! If I could give her six stars, I would. Her negotiating skills, local knowledge and connections are superior! She taught us that sometimes it’s about who you know and Monica is certainly has great connections who will work their hardest for you! 10/10 Reccomend!"

"Monica is amazing and knows her stuff. She knew the area and exactly what we were looking for. So happy we got to work with Monica and we highly recommend her if you are looking for a new house or selling!"

"My husband and I just bought our first home with the help of Monica. She is not only kind but she is resourceful and gets the job done really quickly unlike many others in the business. The one thing I remember she told us was, "I work for you." She really stands by her words. She  truly helped us not only understand the process more but overall just helped my anxiety and stress levels during the whole process. I completely recommend her for anyone that wants an efficient and knowledgeable real estate agent."

Eddie grew up in the Black Mountain area and has superb local knowledge. He had sold other homes in my neighborhood so I was familiar with his expertise. His familiarity with the local market helped me price my home appropriately. Eddie compiled a very nice online piece to market my home which included excellent photography and amazing drone video footage. We had a contract within two weeks and proceeded to an uneventful closing about six weeks later. I have no reservations recommending Eddie Colley to help you sell your home. 
We were most impressed with Eddie and Jessica's professionalism in selling our home! Our experience with them was at the utmost level. They were extremely thorough in making sure our home was well advertised. The use of the internet was used in addition to other methods. Ample notices were given for showings. Good advice was given on how we should show our home to potential buyers. Reviews were prompt and descriptive. Negotiations were handled in a professional and informative manner when offerings were placed on our home. When our home sold, Eddie and Jessica were most helpful in the closing process.

We can’t say enough about our experience with Jessica and Eddie. From the very beginning we felt that they advocated for our needs as they patiently helped us find just the right house. Their wonderful advocacy and expertise continued as we made an offer, negotiated inspection issues and closed. We are so grateful for their genuine help and professional support! 

-Jackie Perry

My husband and I were very impressed with Eddie and his entire team during the time we were listed with them. Communication was excellent. They had good ideas, were honest and we enjoyed our relationship with them. Any time we had to go to the office, every associate treated us with kindness, respect and professionalism. We would highly recommend them for the sale or purchase of a home in the area.

Eddie and Jess are awesome! Tremendously knowledgable on the local area and went well above and beyond the call of duty in helping us navigate a few construction issues and insurance issues significantly after our closing. These two are genuinely good people and I will happily give them my business for years to come.

Eddie helped us buy our home three years ago and now sell it in 2017. On both occasions he went out of his way to make sure we are not only represented well, but also kept us informed of every step in the process. It could not have been easier for us and I highly recommend Eddie and his entire team!!

Buying A House Is Fairly Stressful For Us Because We Have Lived In The Same House For Almost 20 Years Prior To Buying Our New House. The Process Went Smoothly From The Time We Made And Offer Until Closing. Eddie Was Very Helpful In Setting Up The Home Inspection And Appraisal. He Was Also Very Helpful In Negotiating The Price For Our New Home. Eddie Is Very Knowledgeable About The Neighborhood That We Choose.

Eddie Colley Was The Selling Agent For Our Mountain Home And The Buying Agent For Our New Home. He Promoted Our Mountain Home In Several Different Manners, Seeking Out Potential Buyers. He Didn't Just Wait For A Buyer To Express Interest. Eddie Sought Out Buyers. He Provided Highly Professional Pictures And An Excellent Video Tour. At All Times Did He Keep Us Informed With The Status Of Any Showings. At The Time Of Closing, Eddie Helped Us Through Each Step And Was Present For The Process Of Selling Our Home And Then Buying Another Home. In Both Selling Of Our Mountain Home And Buying A New Home, He Displayed Exceptional Negotiation Skills. We Highly Recommend His Services And Will Suggest Him To Any Other Individual Looking For A Real Estate Agent.

I Would Highly Recommend Eddie Colley For Your Consideration In Real Estate Buying Or Selling. To His Credit He Has Sold Two Pieces Of Our Property During The Time Of A Slumping Real Estate Market. He Is Thorough, Knowledgeable And Extremely Friendly In All Of His Deliberations. Since We Were Out-Of-State Owners, Many Times He Went The "Second Mile" In Making Our Property More Attractive To Potential Buyers. By Far, Mr. Colley Is The Finest Real Estate Agent We've Ever Worked With.

Having Over Twenty Years Of Experience As A Global Executive Recruiter, I Feel Well Qualified To Point To Eddie Colley As An Outstanding Person Who Takes An Obvious Pride In Being Of Service To Everyone He Meets. Without Question, He Is Exceptional, And I Recommend Him Most Highly.

Eddie has provided excellent perspective on the local N.C. real estate market, acted professionally during the process of purchase, and has provided exceptional ongoing maintenance and management of my property.

Bottom line: We netted over $30K more selling our house than if we had used another realtor. Here are the details. We bought a house in Cheshire in 2013 for $581K. Eddie was our buyers agent then, and did a great job. But when our plans changed and we decided to sell the house 4 years later, we talked to 3 well-respected realtors (including Eddie). Our guess was that it would make sense to list the house for $650, then if we got lucky we'd end up with an offer near that, and after paying realtor commissions and a few minor repairs (that are always needed after buyer inspection), we'd probably break even on the house, or maybe make a little. We didn't suggest the selling price to any of the realtors- we wanted to see what THEY suggested. The first two realtors suggested exactly what we thought made sense- list the house for $650K, and see what happens. When we asked if we should "freshen" the house with new carpet and interior paint (both probably about ten years old), both advised against spending money on that, saying the buyers would want to choose their own colors, etc. That seemed to make sense to us, too. Then Eddie came over. He said, "Do you want to know what I really think?" Obviously, we did. He said that we had a gorgeous house, but it really didn't come off that way. The paint and carpet were old and probably dated. We had furnished the house with our older furniture from our main house in Ohio, and added some Ikea things. Eddie said we should hire a staging company to select modern paint and carpet colors, and we should have them "stage" the home with nice furniture, artwork, etc. He said if we did that, he was confident in pricing the house at $700K. I thought that price was high, but it hadn't made sense to me that the other realtors didn't want us to paint the house and do carpet- it just looked "worn-out." Who wants to buy an expensive house that looks "worn-out"? So we went with Eddie. Hired the staging company he recommended, who chose paint and carpet, and redecorated the home with some our our furnishings, and some new furniture and artwork added. Then we held our breath. It's not unusual for high-end vacation homes in Black Mountain to take a year or more to sell- there's just not a lot of buyers at those prices. We were confident we had made the right decision, the house looked GORGEOUS, but knew it might still take a long time to sell. Eddie also did great marketing, including great photos, a nice color brochure, even an online walk-through. And of course he did open houses for both realtors and potential buyers. Several people looked at the house, some more than once. But no nibbles. And then, after only a couple months, we had not only an offer, but a FULL PRICE offer. And, yes, it was a real buyer. After the inspection, there were a few minor repair needed to make the buyer happy, and we gladly paid for those (since we don't live in the area, Eddie actually arranged and managed the repairs for us). Then we closed. The buyer is very happy, and so are we! We sold the house for $50,000 more than the other two realtors would have listed it for. After deducting the cost of the paint and carpet (which I bet we would have ended up doing anyway if we had gone with another realtor) and the staging fee, we netted about $30,000 more by using Eddie. Not because he simply wanted to try to sell our home for a higher price, but because he had a detailed, logical plan to make the house more desirable. Eddie is the guy in Black Mountain, period. If you're buying or selling a home and don't use him you're crazy The Allen's-Black Mountain
