In selling my home Karl was extremely helpful in deciding upon the appropriate listing price. Then, his aggressive efforts in marketing my house resulted in a relatively quick sale. During the entire process he was very helpful, going far beyond what is normally expected from a real estate agent. Karl is an outstanding real estate agent who puts in extraordinary efforts on behalf of his clients.

We had the pleasure of working with Karl when we sold our land in Stoneybrook. Since we live in the Midwest we had to rely on Karl’s advice and expertise to handle things remotely.. He did an outstanding job in explaining the marketplace, deciding on a realistic price and maintaining great communication throughout the entire sales process..I highly recommend Karl to anyone seeking a credible and professional Realtor!

Karl has represented me as both a seller and buyer. His knowledge and expertise are unparalleled. A true professional with honesty and integrity. No one works harder and enjoys it. Refreshing to have had complete faith in him throughout the entire process. I have and will continue to refer him to those who are seeking the same.

Karl does an excellent job at listening to his clients, superb follow through and follow up. We couldn’t have found our dream property without him!

Lynne Driscoll, Greenfield, Indiana

My son and I moved from Florida last summer and Karl Small as the listing agent of the house we bought, has been extremely helpful answering any questions I have whether is horse related or where to go to do things in the area.  He is very knowledgeable and someone I can count on.  Definitely will recommend to anyone looking to move to WNC.

I would like to take a minute to recognize a member of this organization for outstanding service. First, I have to tell you that I normally don’t take the time to write reviews but this level of service was so good I felt compelled to let everyone know. My wife Laura and I started working with Karl Small in December of 2017 looking for the perfect parcel of land that would be used for building are “forever home”. I can admit that we didn’t make it easy for Karl at all. We are very picky and looked at more parcels of land than I care to remember prior working with him. Karl was extremely helpful to narrowing down options for us until we had a very short list to choose from. After deciding on a property it required considerable negotiations and Karl once again stepped up to the plate. After the sale, Karl has kept in touch and has been a great help in introducing me to contractors in the area and giving us some ideas on how we can develop the property. Bottom line, excellent service from start to finish. Thanks Karl!

Greg Griffin, Inman, South Carolina

When we visited this part of North Carolina, the natural beauty and welcoming people helped us decide this is where we wanted to retire and call home.  By the time we met Karl, we had spent four very frustrating years working with several different realtors.  We sadly found these realtors to be lackadaisical and unmotivated.  Our questions went unanswered and requests for additional information were ignored. There was no consideration of the fact that we were traveling here from another state so the limited time and expense of these trips were blatantly disrespected. But most importantly, our description of the type of property we were looking for never seemed to match the listings we were being shown. These experiences left us feeling so discouraged that we were ready to stop searching.  I had just made the statement that maybe finding property here was just not meant to be as we drove into the very charming town of Tryon. We saw a few realty offices and reluctantly decided we would make one more attempt.

We met with Karl and the very next day he started showing us properties. He had the ability to really listen and discern exactly what it was we wanted and needed. As my husband has said, every property Karl showed us was a contender. Our excitement was back and in a few short weeks, we found the perfect place. We are now living here and getting ready to start building our home.

My husband and I both can and do highly recommend Karl. He is very professional, incredibly easy to work with, and genuinely happy to help.  He will not hesitate to find answers to any questions and will always address every concern quickly and completely.  We sincerely believe we found the perfect piece of property because we found the ideal realtor.”

Karl is a true professional. Very knowledgeable of the area. He has an immense wealth of both equestrian and residential knowledge. We appreciated his insight during our search and eventual purchase.
Esther A.
Karl has been a pleasure to work with. He’s the most responsive realtor I’ve ever worked with – usually responds within minutes unless he’s on the road or with another client. He is incredibly professional, knowledgeable of the area, and always true to his word. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to work with him again, except that he has already found my family’s dream home for us!
Gary Collins
Karl Small has been a pleasure to work with. We have used him on multiple transactions on both the buyers side and sellers side. Always on his game, even in difficult situations. Can’t say thank you enough.
Gavin Waldbillig
Most experienced staff in Tryon. Best in the area for consulting on the purchase of a horse farm. Highly recommend them for all your needs.
