My wife and I have been up in Boone many times renting cabins and fell in love with the area. Having retired from my business in Florida we had it on our radar to start looking for property up in the area. It was actually the Google reviews on Boone Real Estate that triggered a phone call to Bob de Camera. He was very helpful in getting us to itemize our wish list together which helped him focus in on properties. Because of summer commitments with family we were not able to come and actually visit properties for a couple of months. Upon advising Bob of a date we would be in the area, he put together a caravan of properties to view. When we arrived and starting viewing properties, we were not “feeling it” with the initial viewings. After hearing what we did and didn’t like, Bob took us to a property that he felt may better fit us. After first stepping into the home we were “Sold”. He helped us through the offer process and we agreed on a price with the seller. He was also helpful in finding us a local mortgage broker and attorney to work on our financing and closing packages. We would highly recommend Boone Real Estate for your real estate needs in the area.
Bob was recommended by a faculty member at App State and boy howdy, what an excellent recommendation! He was a perfect match for our family and we all knew it from the moment that we met him. He is open, frank and honest. He gets straight to the work that needs to be done. During the buying process he was supportive and on our team and he gave us excellent advice to make the sale proceed smoothly. We have bought and sold seven properties and he is, hands down, at the top of the list of realtors we have used.
Working with Bob and Matt at Boone Real Estate was a very good experience for us. After living in Boone for many years, my mother decided to sell her home and move to Raleigh. We wanted to list her home with an agent that could achieve a fair price for her without a prolonged period on the market. They immediately pointed out that the attractiveness of her in-town location as a major selling point and that is was very likely that her objectives could be met. Their strengths are many, but three stood out in particular to us. As communicators, their friendly, straight forward personalities serve them well as they explain the sometimes complicated process of selling a home. They remained in touch and kept us apprised with each new development. Next, their thorough knowledge of the real estate market enabled us to obtain a reasonable offer for the home in the time frame we wanted. Finally, they are responsive. All of our phone calls and e-mails were addressed promptly. Without hesitation, we recommend Boone Real Estate.
Bob was fantastic, before, during and after our search. Having bought houses over many years in many locations, this was the easiest and was completely stress free. From getting us upfront advise on the market and helping us prescreen potential homes, the experience was great right from the start. The time spent during the search was tremendous, and he was able to get us in touch with great local resources. We actually closed a week early! After closing we even got help getting things taken care of when we could not be there. Very professional, knows the market, listens to what you need as a potential home buyer. Highly recommend.
Bob spent a year helping me find my perfect house. He drove me long distances to look at land upon which to build my dream house; and, later, adapted his search when I decided I wanted to be closer to town and do a remodel on an existing house, instead. His automatic e-mails, specific to my search criteria, ensured that I was notified of any new listings as soon as they came on the market. With Bob's help, I found the perfect base house and I am beginning the process of remodeling, now. (The only complaint, which is small, was that he wasn't able find a copy of the existing septic permit for the house I decided to buy; but, I was able to get a copy from a different realtor, who was able to find it online for me.) The properties that are listed with Boone Real Estate are spread out over a large area of the region; and, Bob is connected with other realtors with whom he can negotiate prices of houses and land when Boone Real Estate is not the listing agent.
