Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We were first time home buyers, and had not lived in the area for more than a year so we weren't all too familiar with what we wanted, let alone where we wanted to be. Carol was absolutely terrific--she was extremely patient with us when we repeatedly changed our minds about the size of house we might want, and location we wanted to be in. She took us (all over town) to see any house we wanted, and this proved extremely useful in determining what we (as first time home buyers) did and did not want in a house. She was able to answer all of our questions (and we had a lot), and if she didn't have an answer she found one for us. Everyone she's referred to us has been equally wonderful to work with, from our inspector to repair companies. Carol was always very quick to respond to our inquiries and always had time for us--working with her was a great experience! A first time home buyer or not, we would highly recommend working with Carol if you're looking for a real estate agent. She was helpful, professional, knowledgeable, and just a really great person! Thanks so much, Carol

Carol was my real estate broker when I listed my home for sale at the end of October 2015. She was excellent with communication from the time my home was placed on the market through the sale. She kept in touch weekly and informed me of any calls or showings that may be scheduled in the future. She was also great in providing feedback from any showing that took place. Carol will be my realtor of choice in the future once I am ready to buy another home.
Carol was a pleasure to work with and helped us with every step in the process of finding our new home. Navigating any real estate market can be difficult but Carol made it as easy as possible despite being out of state buyers
We were first time home buyers in NC and living in AZ. Working with Carol was awesome. Once we found a house we liked we only had a week that we could come and stay in NC. Carol had all the different contractors lined up to be at the house that week we were there. She stayed with us the whole day taking care of issues that came up last minute. She was very patient and knowledgeable and helped us through a stressful time. She provided us with local contractors and other business owners names to do various jobs and If she didn't know an answer to one of our questions she got the answer asap. She was also a great negotiator with the other agent. We would highly recommend Carol to anyone looking to buy a home. Even after a month since we closed she is still there for us helping any way she can.
Carol Marin made my home purchase so easy! She is such a pleasure to work with and is all you could wish for in a real estate agent - efficient, knowledgeable, polite, friendly, and gets things done. I cannot recommend her high enough if you want a hassle free home transition.
I was very fortunate to have selected Carol Marin as my realtor. I recently purchased a property located in Asheville, NC and I am very happy with the outcome. This was a very challenging process due to the fact it is a seller's market and I was currently living across the country. Carol was constantly on top of things. I totally relied on her judgment and can't say enough of her dedication, knowledge, skills, patients, and thoroughness. Thanks to Carol, I was able to purchase a home I was looking for in a very nice neighborhood, in my price range, and a great location. Carol exceeded all expectations.
When we listed our property, we didn't know Carol. She came to our house well prepared and offered us great information. We listed with her that night. Within one week she brought us an offer which we accepted. Carol is very knowledgable and caring. We highly recommend Carol and have already done so.
As home buyers living out of state, Carol was the best we could have asked for. We contacted her about a long rambling list of criteria and homes we had bookmarked that we wanted to see over the Christmas to New Year holiday and she set up every appointment within our short timeframe. She was wonderful in advising us on the offer price and subsequent negotiation. On top of it all, she went above and beyond what we would expect from a realtor when it came to coordinating the countless service providers that needed access to the home in order to provide estimates for the renovations we wanted done to the house. We successfully closed and all of the renovation work we have hired out is through her network of recommendations, which has worked out better than we could have hoped for. Carol was a dream to work with and we highly recommend her for any buyer. Buying a home from out of state could be a stressful situation, but Carol did everything she could to make the process as easy as possible for us.
We were looking for a second home in Asheville and Steph made our out of town house hunting process a wonderful experience. From our day one to closing she was approachable and available. She is very knowledgeable about the market and the area. Her insight helped us find the perfect house for our needs and our budget. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a new home in the Asheville area.

This summer my wife and I took Stephanie Cochran on what should have been a "wild goose chase". We approached her with unusual requirements and she was immediately up to the task. Stephanie is a tireless listener and in her knew that we had finally found an agent who was not only in tune with our needs, but genuinely interested in helping us meet them. In addition to her impressive familiarity with the area and its markets, Stephanie's knowledge and experience set her apart.
