We had initially contacted a realtor at another firm, and after spending a significant amount of time discussing what we were looking for, we never heard from her again.
I was given Ben McKay’s name by a co-worker. Ben was very responsive from the beginning, and took the time to educate my wife and I on the different location options that fit what we were looking for. He provided a lot of houses for us to consider, and always made time for us as we live 2 hours away, and were limited in the time and timing of when we could look.
When we finally settled on a house, Ben guided us through every step of the process, and made sure that nothing was overlooked. He helped us negotiate on the items that were found during the home inspection, and has continued to help us with finding contractors for future projects.
Ben started as our realtor, but we truly consider him a friend now. I would definitely use him again, and would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a house in the Boone, Blowing Rock, or Banner Elk area!
