How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?

Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Welcome magazine.

Chris and Annie, I can't thank you enough for sticking with Missy and me through the entire sales process. Y'all are true pros! Chris is the consummate professional. He is personable, smart, knowledgeable, hard working and always a pleasure to deal with. Chris was always willing to go the extra mile to accommodate our interests and concerns. He kept us informed about his efforts and, during the final complex closing, kept us all organized...even the attorney. Our, now former house, is large, historic and located on a relatively large land tract. It took awhile to find the right buyer for such a property. I am so glad we had the Chris and Annie team behind us. They not only worked diligently to sell the house, they found a wonderful buyer. I could not be more satisfied with their work.

Sandy Schenck


Chris' attention to detail from first meeting him, to how he wanted the house staged (in my case emptied), to handling the many competing offers that came in over the weekend that the house was first listed, to wrapping up the repairs that needed doing after the inspection...Chris was there by text, email, and or phone. His eagerness to help and his constant encouragement made selling my first house very easy. I look forward to recommending him to anyone I know that is in need of a real estate agent.

Dawn~Hendersonville, NC


Thank you Chris Battista for your hard work

Ed Baber Hendersonville, NC


Chris Battista is a master of his profession. Every aspect of our purchase, from a lengthy search process to a complicated series of inspections and re-negotiation, was handled professionally and patiently. Thank you, Chris!

Howard & Deborah Helmken, Asheville


Word of mouth is still important these days. Chris had sold an acquaintance a home and the homeowner had a glowing recommendation for Chris based on their positive experience -which is why I chose him. Chris Battista is confident, thorough, reliable and trustworthy. Purchasing a home is a huge event both financially and emotionally. Chris was consistently strong and steady from start to finish. His keen follow up and communication skills put me at ease where I felt that nothing would fall through the cracks. Chris was available and approachable, calm and patient throughout the process. He would listen and respond to any requests. Chris has a work ethic and drive that extends well beyond standard practices and is something to be commended. Chris Battista is the best realtor. Period.

D.M., Hendersonville


Chris Battista was extremely helpful in helping our family find a home. We were house hunting remotely and he catered to that. He provided us with good details of the property and knowledge of the area we did not have. Excellent experience with Chris and the Beverly-Hanks team!

Mark Poitras


My experience with Chris Battista was the best I've ever had with a realtor. Every realtor should be as professional, helpful, thoughtful and competent as Chris is. All along the way he kept me informed, was always available and offered to even help move things for me if I need him. It was a real pleasure working with him, and I will always call him when I need a realtor. I would recommend him personally to anyone I know! Tammy Shook

Tammy Shook


Chris Battista does an outstanding job in helping out with all transactions during the sale and always returns calls promptly. Answers all questions. Is very professional.

Shirley Harvey Estero, Florida


Chris and his wife Annie are an excellent team. They have a very broad knowelege of Western North Carolina especially the Hendersonville and Brevard areas. The two of them very efficiently walked us thru the entire buying process. Either Chris or Annie were in daily contact with us first to secure the property we wanted by contract then thru all the inspections,banking and closing processes. I dont believe anyone could have done a more thorough job of scheduling or achieving our purchase.I believe them both to be hard working,fair,and trustworthy.In all our future real estate transactions I look foreward to working with them both again and absolutely recommend them.

Robert Rogers,Hendersonville


My wife and I recently sold our home in Hendersonville, NC. After interviewing realtors we knew that Chris Battista was the one. From the first visit to our home for an interview, he was very professional and to the point, yet friendly and personable. One of the most critical factors in selecting an agent for us was communication and response time. Chris was always on time, communicated very clearly, and responded to our calls, texts, and emails immediately. He had a very clear and concise advertising plan for our home that worked perfectly. We had a contract the first day on the market! We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home. Thank you Chris and Annie!

Jason and Sabrina Pierce, Hendersonville, NC


Chris was great to work with, very professional and no nonsense, he knows his market well.

Troy Wightman


Chris was an outstanding example of how a home sales should transpire. I appreciated his kindness and concern to make sure I knew what was coming next with each step of the sale. He followed through on everything through to the end of the closing. Thank you Chris, I highly recommend you to others.

Carolyn Fisher, Flat Rock NC


Chris Battista went way above the call of duty to help us get the property ready for sale and gave great contractor referrals. He helped us with every aspect of the rehab and met with contractors and inspectors since we are out of state buyers. I could never refer anyone higher than Chris he is just absolutely OUTSTANDING! Paul Lizell

Paul Lizell Naples, FL


Working with Chris and Annie Battista is the best experience in buying a house! They handled everything professionally and positively. Each step of the way, they help with timing, contracts, inspections, etc., making the whole process a breeze! And, they have extensive knowledge of the market, down to specific houses, neighborhoods, views, acreage, market conditions, and the list goes on! Annie and Chris have that throwback feeling of really caring about people- what a delight! I highly recommend working with them if you are looking for excellence with a hometown feel!

Leigh Lohwasser, Asheville


Chris is always prepared to do what it takes to get the job done! He's personal and considers both of our needs (we are a couple) when assisting with real estate sales. Chris is also patient with us--a real necessity in our history!

Natalie Dalton Georgia


Annie was very timely in her responses and kept me well informed. I am well pleased with all my interactions with her and brokerage firm.

G Morgan, Atlanta


Chris is my go-to person for real estate transactions. We have worked together for many years on various transactions. I routinely recommend him to all my friends and family. He's honest and realistic. He's not shy about sharing his feelings about properties and I very much respect his insights and opinions.

Bill McLaws and Maridee Spearman


Chris was excellent.

Issac S. Call


The Battista's did a great job in working to sell and selling our home.

Pam--Hendersonville NC


This is my 5th house, and Chris Batista is by far the best realtor I've ever dealt with. Aggressive, in a good way. He made it seem like I was his only client, though I'm sure I wasn't. Definitely would use him again. Thanks, Chris!

Erick Lemmen, Hendersonville


A neighbor referred me to Chris and I am so glad he did. I was selling my childhood home and was seeking someone professional, knowledgeable and experienced. Chris was this and more. He was A+ in all aspects of this selling process! Appreciate his advice and counsel at each stage of the game.

Keith McKinney Brunswick County, NC


Previously worked with Chris Battista and knew he would work with us and represent us well in all facets of our home search and purchase. Annie Battista was very generous with her time, and along with other items - went back and did a video walk through for us before we finalized our offer to purchase - invaluable as, again, we are out of state buyers. Simply put, if you want to sell your house, call Chris - if you want to buy a home, call Chris.

The Whalens, Florida and Fletcher NC


Chris Batista is the best and deserves great credit for what he does so well.

Joseph Lohan, Etowah


We have done three real estate transactions with Chris Battista and he has provided consistently stellar service. He is the best real estate agent we have ever met and worked with. We highly recommend him to anyone. He is honest, straightforward, professional, and smart. We are grateful to have met him.

Heather Whatton, Hendersonville


I was previously a managing broker at two real estate firms from the Wilmington. NC area and I have precise expectations for any agent that represents us when selling or buying. Chris Battista grew up in this area so he has a great understanding of the local area. He is also an outstanding negotiator regardless of whether you are a buyer or seller, plus he is a strategic pricer so that you save time and receive reasonable offers. We hired Chris when we originally purchased our house in Hendersonville, again when we sold it, and we recommended him to a friend to sell hers. If you want to make a real estate move, you cannot hire a better Realtor than Chris Battista.

Bob and Chris Jamieson, Hendersonville


Great experience would recommend to friends and family!

KG Hendersonville


Having dealt with Chris and Annie on many previous occasions, we knew that they were the ones with whom we would always want to deal on all future transactions. They are knowledgeable, caring, professional, and extremely helpful! Chris and Annie are consummate professionals. They know the market, understand the process of buying, and are perfectionists with all of the details of the transaction from offer to closing. While we have given an excellent in every category, we want to add that dealing with Chris and Annie offers a level of assurance that we are in the very best hands. They are also warm and caring, exhibiting a personal touch to every professional aspect of the transaction. They make the process seem effortless and easy - and are truly a pleasure to work with. Chris and Annie know the market inside out! They are at the very top of their game with knowledge of transactions and properties. We were in a situation where we had to fulfill a 1031 exchange and time was an issue. We frequently received calls and notices from them with properties that might be in our sights, as well as their willingness to adapt to some very tight time frames in order to preview properties. We will always deal with this team and will recommend them to anyone we know who is looking to purchase or sell in this area.

Leigh Lohwasser and Stephanie VanDeventer, Asheville, NC


Chris and Annie Battista kept me in the loop at all times. They explained everything that was going on. They were accessible at all times. When there were winter storms, they would check my house and let me know if everything was ok. Very trustworthy. Chris and Annie were very easy to work with. They were knowledgeable, knew how to explain things, constantly in touch, and knew how to guide me when decisions were needed.

Joan Marsengill, West Palm Beach, FL


Chris Batista is the absolute best realtor!! He is very competent and most efficient! Chris makes the home buying process easier. I will always reccomend him!

Gloria DuBose, Hendersonville NC


Chris was never to busy to answer questions and would always return phone calls timely. would highly recommend Chris.

Danny Biehl / Punta Gorda, Fl/


Working with Annie Batista introduced me to one of the most caring,dedicated, professionals I have ever meet. Trying to arrange a 2 week closing, from out of town, created some high roadblocks along the way. Annie provided the guidance, range of solutions, and constant support to overcome all obstacles. At all times making clear that our best interests, and wishes were her number one concern. Annie is the best !

Joel & Rebecca G,


Broker was very easy to get along with. Always on time, with a great personality. I would definitely recommend Chris to other potential buyers or sellers.

William K Virginia New York


Exceptional broker with tons of experience and knowledge of the Flat Rock community. Goes above and beyond to make the home buying experience go smoothly. Highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Home Buyer, Flat Rock NC


Chris Batista is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Chris Battista exceeded all of my expectations. He did things to help sell my house, that no other real estate agent would even think of doing. He is the hardest working real estate agent I know. I have had agents in Texas, Florida, and North Carolina, but none as good as Chris. Chris was always available to answer questions and return my phone calls. There is a reason he is consistently a top producer for Beverly Hanks.

Tracy Hall Duvall


Chris and Annie have been so easy to work with and very responsive and cooperative. They have made the buying and selling of our condo and the buying of our house very easy. They are personable, professional, and always prepared. We will recommend them to all our friends and family who might be interested in moving to NC to get out of Florida heat.

Kay Burke


I was extremely happy with Chris. Not only did he sell the condo to me, he also sold it for me! He was always there to answer any questions I may have had and his knowledge of the area was wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!

Barb Smith


If you are considering a real estate agent to help guide and assist you in your search for a new home, I would strongly suggest you talk with Chris Battista. He was highly recommended by a family member and proved to be a fantastic asset in every way. My search spanned four months, Chris was always available by phone, email, or text msg. He would go out of his way to make suggestions, recommendations, and made sure that everything was 100% correct at all times. I really can not say enough about how great Chris was to work with, but I would say that I trust him 100%. He is also a fellow RVer who enjoys camping trips with his family when he can get away. So if you are from out-of-town or out-of-state, I would highly recommend Chris Battista.

Aron Cook, Franklin, NC (western NC mtns)


Chris was wonderful! He took care of everything, including spraying wasps and setting off tick bombs! Chris offered excellent advice on preparing the house for sale. He was superb at negotiating offers, and handling situations that came up after the initial contract was signed. Communication was excellent. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend Chris. I am so glad someone recommended him to me.

Chandler Pike, Athens, GA, home of the Dawgs


Selling a home is stressful, Chris was incredibly professional, polite and always helpful and available to us throughout the whole process. He really made every effort to help us through it. He was always kind, enthusiastic and lighthearted, supporting us every step of the way! We will highly recommend him to everyone we know in the area and are grateful for his hard work and dedication to us throughout our sales process!

Daisy & Justin Fouts, Hendersonville, NC


I can’t imagine you have a better broker in your firm. He is the best. Chris was the best broker imaginable. Very professional and extremely diligent and thoughtful. He went way out of his way to make this happen.

Bill Aiken SC


Chris Battista answered my call several years ago and, after showing me several properties, my husband and I decided not to move out of our area. When we were ready to move in 2018, Chris Battista was our first call and he negotiated for us our house, in a multiple bidding situation. Less than 2 years after that we decided to move back to Florida for family and Chris Battista came back to house, listed the house, took photos of the house, showed and sold the house all in that first week. We are grateful for his professionalism as well as his kindness. Chris Battista assisted us with selling the contents of our house as well :) Annie Battista assisted with getting the home photographed and returned for us after we moved away and before closing to double check on items left behind. Personable, kind and professional. Chris Battista seems to always be available, if not immediately - he is calling back while in the midst of leaving him a voicemail! Very easy to work with, quick to the right solution of any concern.

Christine Whalen, Florida


I am sure Chris had many other clients he was working with in addition to me, but he was always there and accessible and responsive at all the important times throughout the process. He gave just the right amount of attention and input when it was needed. I am amazed at his thoughtful customer service!

Joanna Isenhour, Mills River


Chris provided excellent recommendations to prep our home for the sale, was quick to get it on the market (which we were hoping) and really came out of the gates. Our house sold in less than two weeks and his communication throughout the process was extremely punctual and he was patient and helpful in guiding us through this process. I know we were in good hands due to previous recommendations and I feel confident in recommending Chris for any friends or family I know that is selling.

Sarah, Hendersonville


Seldom have I dealt with a real estate agent that inspired the level of trust and confidence that Chris Battista did.

Susan Estes Hendersonville nc.


Chris Battista was amazing though every step in the process and sold our house very quick.

William Wcik


Chris Battista and his wife Annie are great people and we would never consider anyone else as long as they are available.

Weldon And Mary Poling


We have used others with the firm and really like the professionalism and knowledge of the brokers. We were particularly interested in Chris due to his local knowledge. Chris Battista is extremely professional and knowledgeable about the area. He went above and beyond to market our home and it paid off.

M. Richard, Dallas, TX


Chris was excellent. I would recommend him.

Dale R.


Chris always kept me updated on the progress of the sale. Always was there to answer any questions. Knowledgeable on all parts of real estate. Thoroughly enjoyed his great personality!

Barb Smith, Haywood Manor Road


Chris is a very good broker. He is very detailed and considerate. He did a very good job. I would highly recommend Chris if you are selling or purchasing a home.



Chris Battista has been professional, thorough and knowledgeable throughout both of our purchases with him. He is level headed, straightforward, so helpful and absolutely will take care of his clients. He is hands down the best broker I have ever dealt with. I trust Chris completely and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Heather Lee


Chris is very professional, knowledgable and helpful. Will definitely hire him again and recommend to friends/family.

Robert, Hendersonville


Chris was great to work with from start to finish. His knowledge of the local market is excellent. Chris was very helpful with our schedules as my wife and I had to look at the homes at different times on different days. Anyone considering purchasing in WNC should give Chris a call.

Joey Ashley


Chris Battista gave us his time and attention willingly even though we were looking at moderately priced houses. We spent multiple days looking at houses and when Chis was tied up his associate (and wife) Annie capably stepped in. We will likely sell the condo we bought and purchase something larger within the next year or so and we will use Chris to sell our existing place and help us find our next place.

Frank Burke, Longboat Key, FL


Chris Battista will be highly recommended to family and friends due to the professional nature and caring attitude he imparts on behalf of his clients. We love Chris!

Toni and Ed Gillilan


A friend of mine recommended Chris Battista to me. Apparently she had used Chris as her agent on more than one occasion and she had complete confidence in him I felt that Chris appreciated the uniqueness of my property and marketed it so very well. The brochure and photography was excellent. Chris was extremely professional in all aspects of the sale . He was patient and responsive to my phone calls and questions. His experience and guidance was helpful and appreciated. If I ever needed a realtor in the future I would not hesitate to call on Chris and Beverly-Hanks.

Penelope Burns-Hendersonville,NC


Annie is both friendly and has excel lent knowledge of Hendersonville

Pàtricia Kozyra


Chris is professional,courteous,and efficient.It is easy to understand his effectiveness when you combine these personality traits with 40 years of residence in the area and his vast knowledge of his local surroundings.

Robert Rogers WNC


Great support and extreamley helpfull.

Erik Brodin Toledo OH


Chris Battista's professionalism is obvious from the moment you meet him and coupled with his kind and caring manner made our real estate transaction smooth, pleasant and successful.

John and Christine Whalen


Referred from Pardee Hospital for initial community tour and were very happy with his friendliness and knowledge of the area so he was the only agent we approached after deciding on our move to Hendersonville. We purchased an older home in Laurel Park that needed some maintenance and renovations and Chris was wonderful in arranging the inspections and ensuring all the work was completed. This was a great experience

S. Das, Laurel Park


Working with Chris was an excellent experience. He was always available to answer questions and provided consistent updates throughout the process.

Jeff Kilpatrick


Chris has assisted me and my wife in looking at a wide range of properties and is insightful and knowledgeable about the property. He went above what was expected and we appreciate his help immensely. We will continue to utilize Chris' expertise and will continue to recommend him to others.

David Whatton; Hendersonville


Chris was patient with us and always helpful as the long process of finding the perfect house took its course. We feel extremely fortunate to have worked with him.

Michael, Saluda


I appreciated Chris' knowledge of the area and his perspective on the market. I loved working with Chris' assistant and wife, Annie. She was also very knowledgeable and an amazing support during a very challenging buying process of an older home. I appreciated the referrals Chris and Annie gave me for the many inspections required in deciding on this property purchase. I recommend them as a terrific and attentive real estate agent dream team!

Tamera Helms, Hendersonville


Chris offered excellent recommendations with regard to lending, inspecting and closing the transaction, and the same applies to helping us find talented resources within the community who have helped us settle into our home and neighborhood. He is an outstanding negotiator, who grew up in the area, and always followed up promptly with excellent advice. Our overall experience exceeded our initial expectations.

Bob and Chris Jamieson


Would highly recommend Chris to anyone wanting to purchase or sale a home or property. He went above and beyond for the sale of our home. He made sure we were always aware of any changes. Very knowledgeable and professional.

Danny and Barbara Biehl, Punta Gorda, FL.


Our experience dealing with Chris was outstanding. We would not hesitate recommending him to others and have done so. He is polite, friendly and knowledgeable. He had the ability to zero in on what was important to us in searching for a new home.

Bryan & Rachel O'Neill, Lighthouse Point, Florida


Chris never let us down . Deal fell through.With understanding of Our situation. Empty house all furnishings sold or packed. We were in A hard spot.With guidance from Chris and a get her done Attitude we were able to close the deal! Smiling faces from us and buyers! Chris was there working hard to sell our home! What more could you ask for? Our dreams are coming true! Thanks Chris Batista ! Sincerely Bruce & Rita Bergstrom

Rita Bergstrom Hendersonville


Chris was very thorough and a pleasure to deal with.

Anita & Curtis Easter


Chris Battista is the definition of professional. He was extremely accessible and always willing to show us another property (he even showed us a house on Easter Sunday, which was completely unexpected but valuable to us since we lived 2-3 hours away). Chris was attentive to our likes, dislikes, needs and wants. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the area, having lived here so long--it will suit you to ride with him on the drive between properties. Based on our input, he was able to offer strategic advice on what area would be best for us. This was vital for us given that we were strangers to the area. After finding a home and securing a contract, Chris was also helpful in arranging for a closing attorney. He was knowledgeable and could offer advice about mortgage issues. He kept meticulous records and had paperwork that I lost track of. Not only that, but when the home we bought needed repairs, Chris was helpful in arranging those repairs almost like a contractor. There were many times that he helped us (e.g. arranging repairs) when it was not his obligation to do anything. In that, and many other ways, he is superlative. Finally, in the rare instance that Chris had prior commitments, his wife Annie, also a great agent, was able help us. I really cannot say enough about Chris and Annie.

Scott, Winston Salem


I have been a real estate broker in another state for 25 years and found Chris to be an outstanding agent.

John Liberatos, Charleston, SC


Chris Battista went the extra mile to help me sell my home. I had already moved to OR before multiple contractors began home improvement projects and Chris had to do more coordination than either one of us expected! Chris also carried a lot of the load during the due diligence process. I couldn't have sold this home without his help!

Judith Grady, Portland OR


Chris Battista assisted our organization in marketing and selling a home that was bequeathed to us. He communicated with us frequently during the process- from the CMA discussion of a sale price, to the open house, to the multiple bids we received and resulting sale which was OVER our listing price. He was professional, friendly, and absolutely top notch in all of his communications and actions. Working with Christ was a wonderful experience, and we can't imagine how it could have been better. We will be eager to give him more of our business should we be in a similar situation in the future.

Denise Cumbee Long, Hendersonville, NC


If your buying or selling your home and you want it handled professionally then call Chris Battista at Beverly - Hanks George Kostoff

George Kostoff Hendersonville NC


Chris was an asset in purchasing/selling our home. He truly went "above and beyond" our expectations.

Daniel Mills River, NC


Chris knew when to hold and wait versus being aggressive in negotiation had other dealings with Chris on other properties, so knew his capacity and then considered no one else as per other dealings with him his performance was excellent as usual

Cliff Kitten


Chris Battista provided excellent market data to establish the listing price. He implemented every commitment made in listing and showing our property. Chris was very responsive through-out the entire process.

Mark Muir, Horse Shoe, NC


Chris Battista was a true asset during our home buying experience. His knowledge of local property in the Hendersonville area, availability to answer all of our questions, and pleasant demeanor-made our home buying experience seamless. We would have not found our home without Chris.

Jake & Romela Garmon


Chris Battista is a highly professional, caring and knowledgable realtor. I have recommended him to friends and will continue to do so!

Natalie, Asheville


We found Chris to be professional, knowledgeable, very accessible and honest. His follow up was impeccable and were always informed. He was extremely patient while we decided the direction we wanted to go with our purchase. We enjoyed working with Chris and would definitely recommend his services to others.

Rich and Donna Ferragina, Southern Shores, NC


I would definitely recommend Chris Battista. Chris is very thorough and we felt relaxed and confident knowing he would take care of everything!

Valerie Morsell Saluda, NC


I was very pleased with the skills of Chris Battista in the sale of my home. Chris is a dedicated professional. When problems and challenges did arise, Chris was always able to find a workable solution. I was kept updated on the progress of the sale. Chris has great negotiating skills. I recommend Chris Battista to anyone buying or selling real estate. I will contract with Chris for any future real estate transactions.

Keith Hughey, Hendersonville, NC


Chris Battista was an excellent choice of realtor for my home purchase. Chris was very knowledgeable of the area that I was looking to buy into. Chris was always accessible, prompt and kept me informed of the progress being made towards a successful closing. I felt safe and confident that Chris was looking out for my best interest. He has amazing problem solving skills. I recommend Chris Battista to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. I will certainly contract with Chris for my future real estate transactions.

Keith Hughey, Hendersonville, NC


Chris was a fantastic realtor! He was very helpful as we prepared the house for showings. He was very prompt in returning phone calls, and very professional with getting our house out there to be seen, including open houses. I would highly recommend him to anyone. If and when we buy again we would return to him

Debbie Armstrong


We have had a great experience in house-hunting and recently a home purchase with the help of Chris Battista. Chris first gave us a community tour through a work-related visit to the city, and when the time came to hunt for a house, he was able to commit the time to us for the search. He is polite and easy-going, and really a pleasure to work with. He is a good communicator, which was especially important since we were coming from out of state. He made good use of our limited time for the house-hunt, and we were able to make good decisions with his guidance. Chris was very attentive to our needs, and even came to our new home after closing with a home-baked pie and a basket of goodies! We met Mary Kay Burkhe (based in the Champion Hills office) as well during the process of looking for a new home and she has been extremely helpful to us. At the suggestion of Chris Battista we were fortunate to meet Paula Wagner who works within the Beverly-Hanks Hendersonville office and who helped with arranging our home loan. She was professional, efficient and a delight to work with. The process of buying a home and making a move can be trying, but Chris Battista and his team really made our experience an excellent one. We highly recommend working with Chris. Heather North and Gary Rodberg

new residents of Hendersonville, NC


We got a contract from the first people who saw the property, the first day it was shown. The other 2 interested buyers lost out.

Ms Baynard Chamberlain


Having worked with Chris on a different transaction, I knew his knowledge and commitment to our needs. Although I have met several agents that all seem capable Chris' professionalism and drive will keep me as a return client. This transaction involved an estate trust, the sellers bank handling the transaction as a foreclosure, a 1031 exchange and a bank on our end as well. Not to mention attorneys for everyone including the one handling the closing. Chris stayed on top of every comment and request from each entity. His attention to detail certainly helped navigate the various requirements for each party involved. My hope would be that if anyone has a purchase or sale of real estate in their future that you would seriously consider Chris as your agent.

Darrin Winner, Houston, TX


This was our 3rd real estate experience with Chris and we couldn't be more satisfied. He is a very professional, courteous and knowledgeable agent. He made us feel like we were his most important clients. He gave us many helpful staging and showing tips which helped sell our house quickly. The listing that Chris put together was amazing, it was very informative for prospective buyers. Our listing was widely advertised and we had several showings in the first week. We were also buying a new house at the same time and Chris did an excellent job of dealing with both transactions. Like I said before, we couldn't be more satisfied and highly recommend Chris Battista as a real estate broker.

Don and Donna Brown, Hendersonville, NC


Chris was great.....very thorough and professional. I would use him again! Chris made the entire process easy. He was very professional and thorough.

Robin Renfroe, Naples, Florida


Chris really went over and above in all aspects. He made us feel like we were his only clients. I would highly recommend him to others Chris was so attentiver that we never dealt with anyone else He seemed (and was) very professional

heather kell /hendersonville nc


I have known Chris for 16 years and he has always been a very motivated person, hard working and extremely honest person. I couldn't imagine on using someone else!! He will go out of his way to make sure that everything is covered through the signing agreement all the way to the contract and the closing. We need more people like Chris Battista.

Charles Gray - Henderosonville, NC


Chris Battista, was a wonderful person to work with in the purchase of our new home. Chris was very knowledgeable in the property, and highly understanding of our wishes and needs. Hats off for a great job, well done by Chris and the Hendersonville Office, for a timely close and great experience. The Allan's would recommend Chris to anyone interested in the purchase of a home in his area.

R.K. and R.B. Allan


Chris was recommended to us by an appraiser we had worked with in Hendersonville. We knew that properly appraising the home we sold was going to be a challenge. Chris was always very professional, easy to work with and got back to us in a timely manner.

Bob Gettel, Saluda NC


We found Chris hard working. Often the agent who gets the listing does not continue to follow up to actually get it sold. He/she relies on other agents to sell the property to their clients. Chris continued to be in contact with us and the selling agent to be sure that all details were concluded. As a result, the closing went smoothly without incident. We have boungt and sold many properties over the years; Chris did an exceptional job for us.

David Michaels, Hendersonville, NC


Chris Battista was readily available by phone when we needed him-especially at our first phone contact! Chris was especially helpful at drawing out our needs and wants for a new home-despite our own uncertainty. I appreciated Chris being so easy to get a hold of--he has exquisite communication skills necessary for the job! Chris was extremely knowledgable about the Hendersonville area, and used that knowledge to find us an amazing home! We love our new home--thank-you Chris!

Natalie Grace, Hendersonville NC


Chris was referred to me because of his outstanding credentials. He was prompt with meeting with me and rapidly got my house listed and hosting an open house for all the agents. I appreciated his ability to sense the urgency in getting my house sold quickly. He walked me through each stage of the process, communicating thoroughly, taking all necessary steps in getting to closing. Chris is very dependable, friendly, and accessible. He was always available to answer any questions I had. He was able to communicate legalities in a very understandable way.

Donna Dixon, Hendersonville, NC


Chris is a great realtor. He got a lot of details taken care of - that had not been attended to by the seller's realtor. Chris made several trips to the court house and other county offices for us to take care of those details. He made sure we did everything we needed to - to make sure this was the right purchase for us - things we never would have thought of - like the septic permit...

Chris Battista did a great job when it came to purchasing our home. He was very knowledgeable and worked really hard to help us find the right property. Mr. Battista is a excellent choice when choosing a real estate agent if you want someone who will listen and who truly enjoys what they do!

Chris Battista did a great job and was very professional. He stayed in contact throughout the process and answered any questions we had. I would recommend Mr. Battista to anyone looking to sell their home.



Chris displays an extensive knowledge of the housing market in the area. After showing us comps of other homes in the area he persuaded us to list our house for the amount we did, and we are very glad he did, we got a full price offer the first day! If you want a realtor who has great knowledge of the local market, who is professional, who will really work for you to sell or find you a home, and who doesn't, then Chris Battista is the realtor to choose.
