Which room has the most value to home buyers?

A home is one of the most personal worldly possessions that exists. Picking one room that offers the most value to buyers is tough, but if we look to the 2017 Remodeling Impact Report we can get some insight. Complete kitchen remodels are one of the most common large renovation projects. After finishing, 91% of homeowners report a greater sense of enjoyment at home. Kitchen remodels also seem to have universal appeal, with home owners being able to recover 62% of their cost upon selling. For many, it appears that kitchens are the heart of the home.

We first met Karen when we visited Asheville 3 years ago. At that time we were planning to retire to Asheville in 5 years. But plans changed along the way, resulting in job interviews and several trips to Asheville to look at houses. Through it all Karen never lost patience with us, was always kind and understanding, and hung in there with us. And now the dream has come true and we are moving in July 8. Thank you Karen for going the distance with us!!

Karen quickly understood our needs and focused on the best options for us. She did not sell, but rather provided us relevant information on prospective properties. Karen is the most attentive to our needs of any agent with whom I've done business.

Karen King-Smith was able to provide me with the guidance I needed to efficiently and effectively sell the property at almost my asking price. Negotiations took less than a week. I was out of town during the negotiations and Karen was able to aptly handle the transaction and still give the patience and understanding needed during this transaction. I would recommend Karen King-Smith to anyone buying or selling property.

I dealt with Karen when we first put house on market. She is very knowledgable,friendly, considerate and just an awesome person!! I was very pleased to work with her and would do it again if the occasion arose. We had a very good experience. A few bumps from the buyer, but all in all went very well. Karen handled everything with courtesy and professionalism. I just can't say enough good things about her. I think the above list just about says it all. She is awesome!! Everyone was extremely nice.

We have known Karen a long time. She sold us the house we just sold. She is a great real estate agent and is friendly and the consummate professional in all real estate dealings. She is very knowledgeable and has that unique ability to explain the business of real estate. We have been very pleased with Karen.

From my first conversation with Karen on the phone, she was knowledgeable and understanding of what I was looking for without being pushy or over-bearing. She listened to what my interests were and was helpful in setting up initial visits. After talking with her just a few times, I was comfortable in selecting her to be my broker. Karen was not only knowledgeable of the area and available houses, but she also helped me get acquainted with the different communities and amenities available in the Asheville area, which helped me in making a decision on my home purchase. She understood the market and used a technical and realistic approach to helping me with negotiating price. It was clear she keeps up on research into the various aspects of home purchasing and is a committed professional. Since I was making this purchase while still living out of state, she was extremely helpful in arranging showings that used my time efficiently and allowed my to see a variety of potential homes in a short amount of time. I not only was well-served by her professional skills, but her personable approach and genuine interest made this an actually enjoyable process with a person I will view as a friend for the future and a broker I will recommend to others.

Karen King-Smith helped my daughter to purchase her first home. I am a Realtor outside of North Carolina and Karen has earned my respect, trust, appreciation and friendship. I perform as a Realtor with the highest levels of service and I couldn't have hoped for another professional to treat my daughter like I would treat a customer, but here you have it; Karen surpassed all of my expectations! She performed with professionalism, patience, compassion and expertise. She will have my gratitude and future referrals forever! Thank you, Karen, for making this experience a positive one for my daughter and for going above and beyond in every direction!

Karen was a wonderful support throughout the process. Although we pretty much already knew what we wanted, she made the process of buying the house relatively painless. We always felt that she was honest and straightforward about our options. We would definitely use her again as our agent!

Karen made everything seem real. She would give us examples of all situations and reassure us that things will workout, and if they don't it just wasn't meant to be. Having this mindset going in really put us at ease. She was there for us for everything. She did an excellent job. Frankly, I'm going to miss talking to her on a regular basis.
