“From someone who has just purchased his 10th home, I feel as though I am very qualified to render an opinion about Alec Cantley’s abilities as a Realtor. Alec was nothing less than an absolute professional throughout our entire process. He spent countless hours listening, understanding and researching the type of property we were looking to purchase. Over a period of some 30 days we looked at over 50 properties before we found the right one and his patience and feedback along the way was invaluable. The last point I will make is that I have never worked with an agent that looked out for my interests and risks during the negotiation and due diligence period like Alec did. Alec gets my highest recommendation and I assure you he will take care of you throughout the entire purchase process.” -Terry and Ann Brantley

“Alec Cantley of Carolina Mountain Sales helped us find the mountain home of our dreams. He listened carefully to what we were hoping to find, was diligent about finding contenders, and then spent two days showing us a few dozen of them. He was knowledgeable about the Asheville area, having grown up there, and saved a lot of time by disqualifying large swaths of the Asheville area and focusing on where we needed to be. Once we zeroed in on the house we wanted, Alec’s incredible personality made the negotiations near painless, even after an expensive problem was discovered with a retaining wall. Alec helped convince the sellers to fix the problem and he got the engineers and contractors to get it done in time for closing.  Yes, Alec is young, but he has the knowledge, negotiating skill, and technical ability of a Realtor three times his age. One would be foolish not to retain him.” - Dana and Tammy LeJune

“Alec is very professional. He has a vast knowledge of the market and the details in order to close a deal. We had a wonderful video prepared and a full set of professional photos to help market our house.  We highly recommend Alec!” - Maureen and Tom Hager

“Alec was very knowledgeable and helpful. I gave him very little to go on, other than I wanted a house in my budget. He was patient and showed me numerous houses throughout all of Asheville while I decided specifics of what I wanted in a house. He always made time to show me a house, even with little notice. He had great recommendations for loans, appraisals, and inspections. I will be using him again in the future.”  - Hillary Roach

“Alec did a superb job for us in Asheville.  His expert knowledge of the local market combined with inventory connections was invaluable in securing our perfect home. He was extremely professional throughout our contact.” - Tom and Courtney Bottoms

“Our experience with Alec was exceptional!  We had unusual circumstances where my husband and I had to come to town at different times to look for homes and he was very patient with having to go out to the same properties more than once and deal with our differences of opinions!  He worked around our crazy schedules and kept an enthusiastic attitude despite several disappointments.  His local knowledge was extremely helpful on many levels...everything from the history of different areas to being an alumni of the school our daughter planned to attend. We finally found a lovely home near our daughter's school, within our price range and are extremely grateful for all of Alec's help and patience. Thanks Alec!” - Mike and Laura Blanchard

“Alec assisted me with the purchase of a house and has shown me several parcels of land.  The home purchase went off without a hitch. Alec educated himself about the property and the surrounding area, and was prepared to answer every question immediately.  He made the process incredibly easy and was always available, promptly returning calls and emails.  In my search for land, Alec listened to my requirements and showed me properties that fit within my parameters, never wasting my time with unacceptable properties.” - Kim Reynolds
