About Me

I’ve always said, “Life is a Journey and everyday is a new adventure.” This is the attitude that I like to wake up with and let it take with me throughout the day. Often you might find me and my wife Cyndi, enjoying the elements that make Asheville unique such as local eateries Vortex Donuts, Urban Orchard and Nine Mile along with the drum circle and the many artists' studios throughout the region.

I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful areas on the planet where being in the real estate business is definitely an adventure. My approach is simple and simply stated, there is no challenge we can’t get through! I will help you with your what, when, where and how as if it were for me and my family. Communication is the the key and I will keep you informed every step of the way. I have experience from state line to state line and in countries all over the world. Let me help you with your next real estate transaction.

Testimonials

I am from New York State and I had used my agent Gail Bohlke 2 times in NY. When I told her I was moving to NC she told me she could recommend an agent in NC. She then explained that her agency in NY was affiliated with Beverly-Hanks Realtors here in NC. That was very important to me. She contacted Beverly Hanks and John Maddon reached out to me while I was still living in NY. He called me while my house was still for sale in NY and asked me what I was looking for in NC. He started sending me listings for homes here in NC before I received a contract on my home in NY. As soon as I had a contract on my home in NY, I came to NC to find a home here. We spoke on the phone often enough so he understood what I was looking for before I even came here. John really had to help me a lot with this purchase. Firstly, I was still living in NY and so he had to check up on things to help me. Everything was complicated on my end since the rules in NY are very different from NC and I was not only selling my home but also selling my elderly father's home. My father was moved to a Memory Care Facility in Austin, TX during this process to be closer to my brother, and approximately 2 weeks before my closing, he suddenly passed away, and I needed to delay the closing in NY and NC. John was so helpful and supportive during this process. This turn of events was totally unexpected and John was there to help me and take care of everything in NC, while I was dealing with things in NY. To sum things up, John Maddon was there to help me and support me through this process and that meant a lot to me. He answered my questions and offered suggestions and support when I asked. Even after my closing, he continued to check on me to see if things were moving smoothly and to see if I needed any assistance. He is a Wonderful Agent and I would completely recommend him to anyone I know!!

We recently purchased a house in Maggie Valley. John Madden had our house hunting and purchase effortless. Prior to working with a John we worked with another realtor for a different company and it was a terrible experience. After searching the internet we read reviews on Beverly-Hanks. Upon calling Beverly-Hanks South Asheville office we reached John Madden. John and I had a brief phone conversation which I shared the area we were interested in, our budget, and our must have. On our first meeting John came prepared with a list of houses to view, comparable for the area, and vacant lots to view. John was proactive and prepared to meet our needs. He helped us secure a real estate attorney and loan agent. John was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend John Madden to future buyers and sellers in the Maggie Valley / Asheville area. John did an incredible job and we thank him.

We met John a few years ago while he was selling other properties in our village. He impressed us with his knowledge of his craft and the background details of our neighborhood. We knew then that if we were to put our home on the market someday we would highly consider him as our agent. Over the years, other agents were suggested to us as we thought about selling and John's name kept being forefront in our minds. When we contacted John this past spring, he immediately remembered our home as we had invited him in years before. We explained our needs and wants and upon meeting in a few days we could tell he had done his research, making us feel very confident. We were impressed with his diligence, expertise, and understanding of our needs. The presentations of photos, and literature made us believers. Our house sold in less than a week, we were so delighted. John stayed in constant contact with us throughout the process which kept us feeling confident in the process. We have already recommended John Madden to others, one of which has her house listed with him now and have recommended him to many others for the future. The perfect person to sell our home.

John Madden was with us start to finish. This process started over 6 months ago and John was always willing to tour homes whenever we were in the area. He went above and beyond allowing several other family members to visit our final choice even though we weren't with them. When I had a hiccup with the closing of my previous home, all it took was one quick call to John to make all the necessary adjustments in NC.

I submitted a request to be contacted by Beverly-Hanks for a property I was interested in and John Madden responded. He has been a top-notch agent, showing me a variety of properties within my provided specifications. Once an offer was made, he facilitated the process and was very patient through the various twists and turns that arose.

John Madden didn't just try to get me into any house. John listened to what I needed in terms of size, yard, and features, and he provided options that fit those needs in my price range. Once I had decided on the house that I wanted, John went out of his way to help me get the best price that I could, get necessary repairs completed, and close quickly. I'd recommend John Madden to anyone looking to purchase because he was easy to work with, responded almost immediately to questions or concerns, and went out of his way to make sure that I understood the process of buying a home.

John Madden was caring, honest and always available to us. The market is still poor and we did lose money in the sell but we stood a large chance that our house would not sell at all. John "got er done""! By doing that he opened the door to our new adventure in life.

Kathleen Logan Monroe NC

John Madden was amazing! He took a property that had not moved in over a year due to a combination of a difficult neighbor and not-up-to-par real estate agent and turned it over in less than 3 months. He tactfully dealt with both the neighbor and the scorned realtor with grace and a professionalism that is to be commended. I would highly recommend John to anyone who wants a realtor who cares about his client and will go the extra mile to make sure the job is done.

I was fortunate in the luck of the draw. I knew no one in North Carolina. From day one he was helpful, pleasant, and immediately responded to my inquiries. In all areas of the transactions John was prompt on handling the multitude of duties to make this an effortless purchase for me. Buying a house can be stressfull but with John's sense of humor, his patiences and helpfulness it was actually fun! I was purchasing a low end price range home and was originally wondering what kind of service I would receive. John treated me as if I were looking at million dollar homes. I was never rushes, phone calls were returned promptly, we took side trips to see where stores were, etc.

Note: John worked with me long distance on two offers and one successful home purchase. I live in Charlotte.

I submitted a request to be contacted by Beverly-Hanks for a property I was interested in and John Madden responded. He has been a top-notch agent, showing me a variety of properties within my provided specifications. Once an offer was made, he facilitated the process and was very patient through the various twists and turns that arose.

John Madden didn't just try to get me into any house. John listened to what I needed in terms of size, yard, and features, and he provided options that fit those needs in my price range. Once I had decided on the house that I wanted, John went out of his way to help me get the best price that I could, get necessary repairs completed, and close quickly. I'd recommend John Madden to anyone looking to purchase because he was easy to work with, responded almost immediately to questions or concerns, and went out of his way to make sure that I understood the process of buying a home.

John Madden was caring, honest and always available to us. The market is still poor and we did lose money in the sell but we stood a large chance that our house would not sell at all. John "got er done""! By doing that he opened the door to our new adventure in life.

John Madden was amazing! He took a property that had not moved in over a year due to a combination of a difficult neighbor and not-up-to-par real estate agent and turned it over in less than 3 months. He tactfully dealt with both the neighbor and the scorned realtor with grace and a professionalism that is to be commended. I would highly recommend John to anyone who wants a realtor who cares about his client and will go the extra mile to make sure the job is done.

I was fortunate in the luck of the draw. I knew no one in North Carolina. From day one he was helpful, pleasant, and immediately responded to my inquiries. In all areas of the transactions John was prompt on handling the multitude of duties to make this an effortless purchase for me. Buying a house can be stressfull but with John's sense of humor, his patiences and helpfulness it was actually fun! I was purchasing a low end price range home and was originally wondering what kind of service I would receive. John treated me as if I were looking at million dollar homes. I was never rushes, phone calls were returned promptly, we took side trips to see where stores were, etc.

John Madden is ideally suited for real estate sales: he has a great personality and is very likable. He was very attentive,.. on the ball immediately with communications; not pushy or pressuring. I would recommend him to friends or family. Aron Brumm

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
