Tell Us Your Story

I highly recommend NC Mountain Brokers.

We worked with David and could not have been happier with the service. He is attentive, knowledgeable, honest, and he follows through. We moved from AZ to NC, and we had several realtors who never returned our calls. David never failed to return our calls and anticipated our needs. You will not go wrong with David or his agency. Do yourself and favor and go with David or NC Mountain Brokers. You won’t regret it.

David is an amazing realtor!

! He definitely went above and beyond with helping us sell our home. We ran into unforseen issues with selling our house (which should have been caught when we purchased it) and David was there to help us thru it all. An example of this- I was at work on a Saturday and was extremely busy. He was at our home with the contractor who was putting a leach field in the front lawn. The contractor called and let me know the septic needed to be pumped before he could continue with the work. (The weather, permits and all else has pushed us behind already and we were all beyond frustrated.) David called around for me and found someone to come out last minute, on a Saturday, for a reasonable price and take care of the septic! This is only one of the many many examples of how wonderful and caring David is as an agent. I highly, highly recommend him!!!

I would definitely recommend David Stephens to anyone that is in the market to buy or sell property.

He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. During the entire process, David was readily available to answer any questions or concerns I had. David is very honest and cares about his client. He would answer my calls even at 11pm and immediately make any changes I would ask of him. I have worked with several realtors during my 28 years of buying or selling property. Never have I had the quality, responsiveness and personal attention that I received from David. He is my Realtor for any future property transactions and I recommend that he be yours!

We lucked into finding David when searching for a mountain property in North Carolina.

I don't know how we got so lucky; he's been nothing but fantastic since our first interaction. David represented us as buyers for a property.The biggest strengths with David I noticed were his responsiveness, helpfulness, and ability to go above and beyond when needed -- even if it was for something unrelated to his duties.We texted or called David at all hours of the day and night. He would respond immediately. If it ever took more than a few minutes, I knew David was actively in a showing or driving where there was no reception; he ALWAYS responded as soon as he was free.David was extremely helpful in all areas of the process. Things like lining up or recommending things we needed (surveyor, inspector, making sure the loan process was moving along) were kept on track due to him. He also wore a fancy suit to our closing while I was in shorts and t-shirt. He's a stand-up guy.Finally, David went above and beyond in multiple areas where we needed a hand. A prime example is internet service. Our seller promised a certain type of internet being available that would make working from home possible from a mountain home. As we got closer to closing, we found out that service wasn't actually offered at our property. David helped call around to multiple local providers to see what he could find for us while we were doing the same thing. It was great to see him take on our concerns so actively.If you're looking for a hand on real estate items, you can't go wrong with David. Give him a shot. He's a genuine, funny, great guy to boot. Thanks for helping us find our dream home, David!"

David was the ultimate professional.

He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to our requests and was almost always available to take our calls. He was very patient in negotiating the trips to the many homes we looked at as well as time spent in the homes. His honesty was beyond reproach. I will definitely recommend him in the future!

I bought my first home in May of 2022 and David was my realtor.

He made everything as easy as buying a home could possibly be and appreciate all the hard work he put into the process. Would recommend.

sandy A (retired)

David was an absolute pleasure to work with.

He went above and beyond. He showed us a dozen houses and was willing to show us a dozen more until we found the one that worked best for us. He was truly there for us throughout the entire process which was comforting especially with us being first time home buyers.

drstronglikebull

David is committed to making his clients a top priority…even with the smallest details.

David provides an incomparable level of service by fully incorporating his clients needs and concerns into every deal brokered. He provides expert guidance, personalized solutions and masterfully negotiates each each deal that he is involved with. David's care and commitment to his job shows through the "small" things. I being a single mom, was completely baffled with an electronic locking mechanism on my door. David came without me even asking, figured out the complicated locking system and had it figured out within 10 min. David's understanding of the complex and ever changing real estate market is one of the many reasons why I trusted him with one of the biggest financial decisions that I would ever make. I too believe that David's personal and professional attitude is second to none. You can trust David Stephens with your real estate needs…you are in good hands.

He is Amazing, professional and extremely knowledgeable! He made a stressful process easy and smooth. I highly recommend David and his team to anyone looking for the best!

Corey Smith

I am very honored to recommend David to anyone.

He didn't just sell my house in May 2022, he took complete reins. My mom passed away in January so I was dealing with the loss and he made it effortless for me. I had a few issues arise but David took care of all the leg work. He was always only a phone call away literally. Very knowledgable and ready to help. I could have never imagined it would have gone so smoothly. He took all the stress from me so I could grieve my mom. I thank God for David."

David was great in helping me purchase my home in the North Carolina mountains.

He was always quick to respond to any questions that I had about the property and went above and beyond after the closing to make sure I had everything I needed. I would highly recommend him!

Having been in sales a good part of my life I can appreciate a high quality resourceful person and David is such a person .

Great follow up with both sides and always on point . I highly recommend him , we couldn’t had picked a better person for the job .

Frank Landeau

We highly recommend David and his group of agents to anyone who needs to find the home they have been searching for.

If you are looking for an approachable, friendly, honest, hardworking, detail oriented, I got your back type of agent then David Stephens is the one you want working for you to find the home that is right for you. We are retired military and have moved many times from different states from West to East Coast to Hawaii and Back to the East Coast and he is bar none the BEST agent we have ever had the pleasure working with. We have used his services 3 times. He first found us a house in Asheville where the market in the last 5 years has been insane; a lovely 3 bedroom brand new house while I was working on my doctorate. This year we went back to him to list and sell it, which he sold it in 3 days with no issues or hitches, The closing went smoothly. He then went on to find us our Forever Dream Home in Burnsville, working skillfully with the owners as buying a 132-year-old Farmhouse utilizing a VA loan can be tricky trying to satisfy all the criteria and communicating to the owner who was working out of Country and explaining things to him in our behalf. He worked hard and tirelessly in making sure everything was good to go. We couldn't be happier. David is your man."

David made the purchase of our new home very easy, and enjoyable.

He worked with us and the builder and selling agent to get us everything we could ask for. He is very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Kevin Hunter

David was very knowledgeable of the market and was able to get our house on the market in a short time period without a whole lot of hassle.

He helped sale our house in a very short time period and received more than what we were told that we would receive by other very well known agents! I have and will recommend him to friends and family.

Darrick0

David was representing the buyer of our home, which was listed by owner.

We found David very pleasant to deal with, very knowledgeable and straightforward and prompt in responding. I would not hesitate to ask him to represent ME in the future.

Lauren Azoulai

David helped us buy our first home a few years ago and helped us sell the home this year!

He is a skilled agent who is confident and kind. His technology use like the virtual tour really helped boost views for the home. We were not living locally so he was able to provide convenience with online forms and kept us in the loop with everything that was going on. He goes above and beyond to provide great service! I recommend him!

Realtor David Stephens: Quality and professional service as a realtor.

Communications and process smooth and successful. First response to an inquiry was fast and responsive. Understanding of needs and requirements were obtained from me and within 48 hours found a property that was desired. Both in person and online dealing and paperwork were handled with ease. Thanks for effortless process

Anthony Green (Retired (for now))

David is great.

We did long distance house hunt during Covid. He always answers the phone or calls right back, is always pleasant. and makes the extra effort. He knows the area very well. He looked at properties for us and video chatted, and we felt that he had our best interests in mind. We will miss him now that this is done.

alh842

David represented us (the buyers) as well as the sellers on a land purchase in Madison county.

Working with David was such a positive experience. He had excellent communication every step of the way. Whenever a new challenge would come up in the process we found that David was already handling it on our behalf without us having to prompt him to do so. He did an excellent job of representing both parties in a fair and unbiased manner and we felt very well represented throughout the process. David was friendly, knowledgeable, and overall enjoyable to work with. We would certainly recommend David as an agent and hope to work with him again in the future. Thanks again David!"

s shilling12

Good, honest person.

If he does not have an answer, he will search for it for you and let you know. David has always been prompt and courteous and is up to date on much information.

phillip engle7

We found the entire process from searching for the right property to closing on the purchase to be so easy with David guiding and helping us.

He never said no to any request and offered help before we knew we needed it. If you are looking in the Asheville and surrounding area you will never get a better real estate professional to help you!

drcox10231

It was such a relief to find David after speaking with a few other agents that weren’t as communicative as I wanted, or weren’t receptive to my needs.

David was ?? the best realtor for the job. He listened to me, made time for me, and navigated my purchase as an out of town buyer perfectly. He was incredibly insightful and reliable as well as went above and beyond by being present for all of the inspections that I couldn’t attend. It took a real pro to get me under contract on the second house I saw. Give him a call, you will be thankful for his hard work!"

Nats House

David met with us a year and a half before we moved to North Carolina.

He let us know what we would need to do to start our process. He kept in touch with us and answered question I had even though I was still on the other side of the country. Once we arrived in the Asheville area aside from helping us find properties he was able to recommend different people needed to buy our home. David always answered my calls, and my questions. Home buying can be stressful, which is where Davids calm demeanor was key. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home

cmguldner

David was amazing in his knowledge of the area and was available at any time to answer any questions.

He is a very honest gentleman who literally dropped everything, left his yard work to meet me to view a home. I would highly recommend David for any of your needs."

jessicaward7014

As first-time home buyers, my Fiance and I were not sure how the whole process worked.

Luckily David was very informative and clearly explained each step of the entire process to us. The best part was that since we have such hectic schedules, David was able to work around them in order to accommodate us. He also was very responsive to text messages that we would send him randomly as specific questions arose. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell a home!

wesley e allen

David was knowledgeable and always kept in contact with me.

He really helped in every aspect of the process. David was also very helpful in noticing positive and negative aspects of homes we went through. I highly recommend David Stephens!

dbcmotorsports

David Stephens sold my house super fast and helped me buy a house really fast.

He was fast a polite and always returned my calls............................................................

LuisLuevanos

We decided to retire in North Carolina, and selected David to help us find a home here because of his excellent reviews.

And let me say, he deserves them. He was extremely helpful in explaining the how the home buying process works in NC, which is very different from where we came from. He is very knowledgeable of the Asheville and surrounding areas, but was always willing to go outside his 'comfort zone' when we wanted to view homes that were a significant distance from Asheville, and in some cases, way off the 'beaten path'. He was very responsive to all our requests for viewings, arranged all our various home inspections to get them done within the due diligence period, followed through on everything, and was highly communicative during the home buying process. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

"David was very helpful in the house hunting process! He’s extremely responsive, and always willing to chat. He was knowledgeable about the market values, and had the connections necessary to move on a house. The Asheville market is competitive, and I contacted David frequently. He always answered, or sent a message saying he would be in touch. When putting in offers, David’s lawyer contact was just as responsive as him. David stated his opinion about what I should put in on a house, and later I found that he was correct. I ended up deciding to wait on buying, but I am greatly appreciative of David’s help."

"Over the last three years, my wife and I have used David’s services to purchase two lots in the surrounding Asheville, N.C. area. Each transaction went extremely well while relying on David’s knowledge of the area and experience with land purchases. For each purchase he was able to negotiate a price that was around 20-25% below asking price. On our most recent purchase, David was able to execute a 10 day close. He communicated with us throughout the process and used DocuSign to quickly facilitate the purchase. When considering a real estate purchase in Western N.C., David is an excellent realtor to have on your side."

"David was remarkable in every way. He got us from an offer to closing in 19 days, and guided us through every step of the process. When we found the house we liked, he left a wedding reception on a Saturday night to rush over to it and videoconference from it. He also hooked us up with a mortgage company who pulled off the impossible, as well as local specialists for a variety of things. Can't recommend him highly enough."
