"I can hardly imagine a more kind-hearted, patient, professional, and trustworthy partner through this process than Lisa Patty Abbey. Not to mention, she sold my house quickly!"

Lisa is amazing! Not only did she did she answer all my questions and give excellent advice when selling my condo, but she also looked after my cat on moving day so he wouldn't be scared. I would highly recommend Lisa when buying or selling your home!

I needed, if possible, to buy a house that had wound up with Fannie Mae and, thanks to Lisa being on top of things, I learned from her early on in the transaction that this would be a rather complicated and drawn-out process that might or might not work in my favor. What could have been tedious and discouraging wound up being, yes, tedious, but also an encouraging and interesting adventure in real estate! Working with Lisa Patty Abbey was pure delight. She was professional, clear, honest, and immensely helpful at every step. I seriously doubt I would have stuck with this particular, lengthy, and challenging transaction if not for Lisa. I am grateful beyond words to Lisa Patty Abbey and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. In fact, I have already recommended her to a friend looking to sell her home, who also had a great experience with Lisa.

Five years ago my husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Patty Abbey. She was representing the sale of a very unique house in Pisgah Forest. It was one of only two private houses on a children's camp. She represented the sellers who, while not close friends, were known to us. This could have been a rather awkward situation, but Lisa's genuinely warm personality combined with her extensive knowledge of the area and of the market enabled both seller and buyer (us) to reach an agreeable transaction within three days. Our primary residence is 500 miles from Brevard, but Lisa helped arrange everything so that the closing was done without our having to be there. She advised us on local companies we would need to get settled in, and to this day, five years later, she continues to be an excellent source of helpful information whenever we request it of her; in fact Lisa has become a very dear friend of ours. I recommend Lisa's services to anyone seeking to buy or sell in Transylvania county
