Rob was an amazing real estate agent! He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and has a great personality. He made the process of buying and selling a home so much easier and less stressful. Rob was always available to answer our questions and provide guidance. He was patient and thorough, and made sure we understood every step of the process. Rob has always gone above and beyond to help us find the perfect home, and we are so grateful to have worked with him. We would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is truly the best in the business!

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!

Trust!  Integrity!  Transparent!  Honest! Determined!  Resourceful!  These are just a few of the attributes to encourage a buyer/seller to work with Rob.  His experience and expertise are invaluable while navigating the often stressful process of buying/selling a home.  Rob’s attention to every single detail and follow up is incomparable.  I’m exceedingly grateful for all he did to facilitate the sale of my home.

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!

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.

Love ya,
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!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Rob and Christian. They were always quick to address any questions we had during the home buying process. They were proactive during all the phases of purchasing our home and we could rest easy knowing that they were on top of everything. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area.

 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?

Rob is everything you could ask for in a full-service realtor.  He’s super earnest and talented, and yet he’s efficient, detail-oriented and thorough.  Rob is also quite resourceful and practical – he knows how things work in homes and has the contacts to get things done.  Most of all, as the agent working with both sides of our transaction, Rob showed us all how he could objectively balance advocacy and negotiating skills with a keen sense of loyalty to both parties, which is difficult to pull off.  Rob Montague does it with the confidence and empathy befitting such an esteemed and experienced realtor.

Jim and Robin S.

We had the pleasure of having Rob Montague’s representation for three real estate transactions in the last couple of years, and we certainly give him our highest recommendation.  He brings a great deal of experience and expertise to the table with accurate information about the current local real estate market.  Meanwhile he is such a nice person, fun to work with, and was rooting for us to achieve our real estate goals every step of the way.  We never felt pressured to move more quickly than we were ready to, or any disappointment when we backed away from properties we had spent some time pursuing.  We joked he was functioning as a therapist when things were a little stressful at times.   We hope our real estate transactions are over for the foreseeable future, but will be looking for reasons to keep in touch with Rob . . .  and that really says it all.

I have been associated with Rob Montague for 25 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!

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.

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

Written to the owner of Asheville Realty Group

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 was referred to us by a mutual acquaintance/client. Rob and Christian 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.

Mark & Betsy

Rob was 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.

John & Liz

Rob 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.
