My husband and I were fortunate to have Rob Montague as our real estate agent in Asheville! When we relocated in July 2015, we didn’t know anyone in the area and made a cold call to Asheville Realty Group. Rob answered our call and worked diligently with us to find the home that was right for us. He listened to us and helped locate homes that met our needs. We appreciated his honest approach and his in-depth knowledge of the area and real estate market. Rob was never too busy for us — he answered our many phone calls promptly and lined up showings the same day we located them, if at all possible. He quickly gained our trust and we are very appreciative of him and Asheville Realty Group!
Rob was a joy to have as our REALTOR! His negotiating skills, business savvy, and ready attention to our needs were outstanding. His quick wit and positive demeanor were added bonuses!
For years I have trusted and respected my colleague, Christian. We met eight years ago, while working together in healthcare roles in Asheville. It was quickly evident that Christian truly cared about patients, their families, and his colleagues. He became the person I went to for help. Now, he is that and, more importantly, a dear friend. I am so excited about the opportunity to work with Christian on future, personal real estate deals. I know he has my interest at heart.
Dear Rob and Christian,
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and expertise when you marketed our home. We interviewed four different real estate agents and chose you for your insight, your integrity, and your marketing strategies. We both were blown away by the drone footage of our home and felt very comfortable letting you set the market value of our house, as we knew you always had our best interests at heart. We also really appreciated how you quickly responded to each and every question we had. It seemed like you guys never slept as you were answering questions and reassuring us at each step of the process. I’m telling all my friends that if they are going to sell their house, they really need to contact your team. Selling a house is stressful, but you made it seem easy. You guys are the best of the best. Thanks again for your efforts on our behalf.
Sherry and Larry L.
Rob and Christian, thank you for your diligence, professionalism, patience, and understanding in handling the estate sale of my Dad’s home. My dad had recommended your company, but you exceeded my expectations during such a difficult period. Your approach and responsiveness eased the burden of handling this transaction from a distance. My sisters and I are grateful for all your efforts and insight in guiding us through this process. Please feel free to send your potential clients our way for a reference. Thanks again for everything, and I hope our paths cross again!
Christian was above and beyond knowledgeable about the transaction process of selling my home in beautiful Chimney Rock. It was located in an outlying county of Buncombe, and he was able to access all information with ease that was required for the sale of my home. He was professional, kind, and at ease with all parties. I highly recommend him, and will utilize his services in the future!
Christian was not only very knowledgeable, but also extremely helpful while guiding me through the home buying process. Based on his guidance, we were even able to negotiate a better deal on the house than I had originally anticipated. He truly went the extra mile!
I want to personally thank you both for your dedication and making this happen for us. When our parents died and left us with 22 properties in three states we needed help. We were so lucky to walk into your office and meet you two on our first trip to Asheville. You were exactly what we were looking for and needed. Honest, straightforward, but most of all creative. Your combined knowledge and expertise is what we really cashed in on. You took each of our four North Carolina properties and first learned about the properties and then did an extensive market evaluation. YOU became our experts and we were so pleased with how you created a [marketing plan for] each of the 4 properties and sold them all for us at top prices. You impressed me the most when you did not want the listing right away on the most difficult and most expensive property we had to sell. You both, I remember, wanted to make sure you were going to be able to market it. You took your time to make sure you did not just take a listing but found a way to market it. Your integrity was so apparent and wonderful and all of us were totally comfortable with you two representing our family trust. Unsurpassed service with integrity, listing and selling about $700,000 for us in less than a year!!! What more could anyone ask for?
I have been associated with Rob Montague for nearly 20 years, first as a realtor recommended to market townhomes I was building. I quickly realized that his talents were exceptional. Over the years, he now has represented me both as a seller and as a buyer, negotiating and marketing dozens of properties. He has a very calm demeanor and is excellent at keeping negotiations moving forward to successful closings. He understands NC real estate law and anticipates problems in advance helping closings to proceed without last-minute surprises. I trust him explicitly–in fact, I often give him power of attorney to act on my behalf. He is one of North Carolina’s exceptional realtors!
I just recently closed on a property thanks to the expertise and help of Rob Montague. I wanted to write you a note to make you aware of how good Rob is. From a customer service and customer experience point of view, I was blown away. Everything from attentiveness to speed of responsiveness as well as anticipating my needs was excellent. He made my experience wonderful and through his efforts allowed me to close quickly without headaches and delays. What that translates into is that any friends or family who might consider a home in the Asheville area will be referred to Rob at Asheville Realty Group. I don’t think there is a better endorsement of his efforts and its effect on me, the client and customer. I could go on and on, but it would become superfluous and redundant. Just know that you have a real winner there
We chose Asheville as the place we’d like to retire, based on the culture, art, music, food and multitude of outdoor activities. However, we did not know anything about where we should live. Rob and Christian were referred to us by a mutual acquaintance/client. They guided us through different neighborhoods and homes, always being honest. After returning to Minnesota, they continued to look for us and did FaceTime walk-throughs so we could better evaluate places. Because of their tireless and positive attitudes, we found our perfect spot in Black Mountain. Once again, they were our advocates during the closing, doing a FaceTime final inspection and making sure everything was functioning as it should. We felt completely at ease, trusting their opinions. We cannot say enough good things about working with these two. They went above and beyond our expectations. Kind of bittersweet when we finished our search because we enjoyed spending time with them! We will put them on the list of new friends in Asheville.
Rob and Christian, the Positive Altitude Team, have been a godsend for my wife and me in our search for the perfect home. Being our first home purchase, this was a huge step for us. We met Rob through a friend and we are so grateful to have found him. His persistence and timely manner kept the process of buying a home on track. The passion he has for the industry shows tenfold in making the process stress-free–you feel as if you are the only one he’s working with. Being a multifaceted person, Rob was always ready to offer his vast knowledge of homes and remodeling ideas when needed. Rob’s personality is fun and charismatic, though he never blurred the lines of professionalism. We gained a lifelong friend in the business and are proud to call him our Realtor.
Rob [and his teammate Christian] helped us find our dream home, prepare a winning offer against seven other buyers, then walked us through the whole process. Excellent service and communication. Highly recommend them.
Christian is professional, knowledgeable, and excellent at communication. Selling a home is very stressful at times and Christian could not have been a better realtor for us. I can not say enough at his superb level of communication and promptness. When you need him he is ALWAYS there. I can go on an on, but if you are searching for a realtor in Asheville please grab your phone right now and call Christian! Professional through and through and an A+ class act! He had our West Asheville home sold in less than 24 hours!
Back in November of 2015, my partner and I stayed at Rob’s Airbnb; we had no idea that he was a Realtor when we booked our visit to explore the possibilities of moving to and buying a home in Asheville. Rob has been available night and day, responding promptly when we found any home that interested us throughout these past 5+ years. He has guided us with his expertise in many ways, time and time again. We closed on our first house on March 15 of 2021. Grateful are we for his help, and his continued help and friendship. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give him an 11.
