Dean and Rebecca Thompson
Low pressure realtor who really knows the market. He listened to my goals and objectives and didn't try to sell me something that wasn't a match. Chip offered timely information and suggestions that proved very helpful in the selections of my full-time home and several rental houses. He and his staff is very responsive, and every interaction was positive. I would definitely work with him again!
Janet Blanchard and Charles Brown
Chip and his assistant, Robin, were very professional and personable. They took care of all necessary permits and connected me with other professionals to complete the transaction. With their help it was a problem free purchase.
Greybeard is the very best! They purchased and sold my home for me, as well as managed it as rental property while I was away. I cannot say enough good about them. Superior service in every respect.
Chip was the consummate professional. Ours was a complicated purchase involving several structures on the property. As a result the due diligence process was difficult and involved. We had multiple inspections and follow up with numerous professionals to clearly define the issues turned up by the inspections. Chip drew on his experience and resources in the community to pull all the pieces together in a timely manner. This was critical as we were operating from a distance. We had all our [...]

We live in Florida but were attempting to buy property in the Asheville area. My wife and I just walked into the office one morning while on a visit and Chip Craig was able to see us right away without an appointment. He was very friendly and very helpful. There were numerous obstacles along the way to buying our retirement property and we live 600 miles away, but Greybeard Realty was constantly acting on our behalf to move the process along. Everyone there, including his assistant Robin, were [...]
Greg and Trula Zornes
We love the little town of Black Mountain and decided it would be a great place to move to when we got ready to retire. We were looking for a home that we could age in place in and decided that we might want to build our own home to incorporate all those ideas. If you've ever tried to look for land on-line you know how challenging that can be. Chip Craig was the perfect resource for helping us. He listened to what we said we wanted and lined up a variety of lots to start looking at. When [...]
