"Thank U again for all your time, it was extremely useful .....i wish there was A Jane in every community we visited !
Scott and Vicki B
When pursuing our dream to build a home in the mountains, we visited many communities over several years. Our visit to Creston was not planned. In fact, it resulted from an early morning phone call we made when reviewing information about various communities. Even though it was a holiday, Jane agreed to meet us within the hour. She listened to our dream and showed us lots that would most closely meet our wants. We did not make a decision for another year. During this time, Jane did not pressure us, but responded to questions and provided all requested information in a timely matter which allowed us to make a decision. She made the whole experience enjoyable.

Jane provided excellent service for us during our purchase of a resale lot at Creston in 2013. Jane is experienced and professional and represented our best interest during the negotiation and sales closing processes. She communicated well during the entire process and was always available to address our queries and needs. I would highly recommend Jane for any real estate transaction in Western North Carolina.

Working with Jane as our realtor in the purchase of a home in Creston was a great pleasure, from our first meeting in October 2014 through closing of the deal in late May 2015. She is hard-working, competent, diligent, insightful, and regularly went the extra mile for us, surpassing every other real estate professional we have ever worked with. From the beginning, she so well understood what we were looking for that we came to rely upon her judgment and advice in many matters, an especially important thing in that we were living hundreds of miles away. She knows the area well and has personal in-depth experience in building a home in Creston. She is warm and wise, and encouraged us through many frustrating moments in the process. John and I give her “four thumbs up”!
Dianne & John Tingley
Aside from being delightful to work with, Jane was thorough and quite attentive to our needs.
Bo and Beth Cribbs
Jane’s knowledge of the surrounding area and the fact that she lives on the property is invaluable to buyers and sellers. She is focused on a pleasant client encounter which leads to results.
“Thank you so much for all the time you spent with us during our visits to Creston. We loved all the pictures, video and material we gathered from you at Creston. We appreciate everything you did for us. Enjoy this treat from our town as a token of thanks!”
