"We cannot say enough good things about Kelsey. We were looking to buy a home in another state and she was there for us every step of the way. There's no way we would have been able to do this without her. She went above and beyond to make sure we "saw" each home we expressed interest in. She gave us the best advice when navigating the differences in NC realty, which were completely new to us. Most of all, we felt supported throughout the entire process. Anyone looking to buy a home in Western NC, whether you're in the area or several states away, should reach out to Kelsey!" - Chelsea O'mara
"Kelsey was impressive from word one. I had an abnormal late request & left a message. She jumped in without hesitation, getting back to me quickly & giving great advice. I'm so glad she was recommended & would highly recommend her as well!" -Annette Greene
"We could not have purchased our home without Kelsey’s expertise. Living out of town, she made the process very easy for us and was always willing to give us her honest opinion and advice based on our wants/needs. Thank you Kelsey!" -Marty Blackmon
"Diligent, Knowledgeable, and Meticulous. Our transaction was conducted at a great distance and required consistent and comprehensive communication. Kelsey went above and beyond the call to provide us with information and follow up, setting aside extra time to meet with me on site on short notice. Cheerful, professional, and thorough." -Randall Goskowicz
"Kelsey Varga is great, knowledgeable and is a great asset to have when finding property in WNC. Kelsey went above and beyond to make the impossible possible for us. She took an after-hours call from us before we met in person and was able to submit an offer on a home at literally the last minute. Although that home didn’t work out, she was in it for the long haul and helped find numerous properties that met and exceeded our expectations in WNC. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and is absolutely a good person to have in your corner when looking to buy property." -Jeff Johnson
"Kelsey is very knowledgeable of the Western NC area, and was very helpful in providing context around each town we searched in around the Asheville area. As out-of-towners, Kelsey helped immensely by viewing homes on our behalf, and provided very helpful descriptions for each home (including things to potentially be concerned about). She was even able to get us under contract sight-unseen (especially impressive given the current hot market we are experiencing). Kelsey's expertise, detailed descriptions, and walkthrough videos gave me the confidence needed to purchase sight-unseen. Kelsey is a fantastic realtor, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase in the area!" -Evan Bunch
