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!

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.”
