Chris Tuten was the perfect realtor to work with our family during our house sale and new home purchase. He knew it was a life changing decision and was exceedingly patient with us throughout the process. We never felt rushed to make a decision and he was creative with our unique and sometimes changing requirements. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

Working with Chris to find my house was a positive experience with a happy ending. I was very nervous about buying a home for the first time, by myself, because of my lack of knowledge about all things 'real estate'. Chris was very patient and took the time to explain whatever I didn't understand. I never felt intimidated or pressured to agree to anything that I was unsure about. We looked at many homes and discussed aspects that did or didn't appeal to me. He really listened and it helped to narrow our search. Despite a few set backs, Chris's enthusiasm remained constant and I really appreciated his optimism. Housing in and around Asheville is currently so costly and so desirable that it's a challenge not to get discouraged. I feel VERY fortunate to have found a place to call home that's not too far from my work and at a price that I can afford. Thank you Chris!
