If I'm not planning on selling soon, do I need to know how much my home is worth?

I offer my clients the opportunity to sit down once a year and review the value of their real estate. For most people, real estate holdings represent one of their most valuable assets and contribute significantly to their net worth. Monitoring your home's value is especially important when values are rising rapidly. You'll need to be sure your homeowner's insurance coverage is sufficient to cover the increased value of your home. Most insurers adhere to the 80% rule. If the amount of coverage purchased is less than the minimum 80%, the insurer will only reimburse the homeowner a proportionate amount and leave the owner exposed. Let's be sure you are covered.

McRae went above and beyond our expectations. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable of the Asheville area, which was our primary consideration being out of town buyers. His coordination of our inspections and follow up items was flawless and it took away all the stress of a remote real estate transaction. I would highly recommend McRae to anyone who is looking to buy a house in Asheville.

McRae was the perfect realtor for me. He made the process fun and easy. He knew when I was trying to talk myself into making an offer that I was rushing the process and told me that he was in it for the long haul and wasn't there just for the quick sale. I appreciated his guidance and patience. I could not have asked for a better person to guide me through this process.

I can't say enough about McRae. As a first time home buyer, I didn't really know what to look for or expect out of the process. McRae was so patient and took the time to explain the whole process every step of the way. He listened to what I was looking for and really paid attention to my likes and dislikes as we looked at each home. I would definitely recommend McRae to anyone looking for a home and would work with him again without hesitation.

We loved listening to McRae's advise all about Asheville and suggested places we might like to visit. My husband and I are newly married and we had different priorities that we wanted for our first home. McRae was really good at seeing what caught our eyes when we first walked into a home. He found us the most perfect home for us! Thanks McRae.

As a long-time personal friend, I knew of McRae Hilliard’s serious business approach to the real estate profession and admired that devotion. His reputation is stellar. Given this profile I chose him as the agent for the sale of a rental property. Even though this is a smaller property, he gave our sale his full attention and cared that the sale would work to our needs and advantage. McRae Hilliard is a consummate real estate professional.

McRea was very accommodating in meeting with us on our schedule And was certainly very pleasant to work with. He was able to put together a marketing plan for our particular house which we were pleased with. We also appreciated his honesty and straightforwardness with us on our questions about value of the house and how to best present it at showings. We very much enjoyed our association with him and will no doubt work with him again in the future.

When we first reach out to McRae, we also reached out to several other agents via email. McRae was the first to respond and also had good flexibility with his schedule. Once we met him and did our initial drive-around we got to know him and really liked his approach and style of helping us find a house.

I heard about McRae Hilliard from a friend who had worked with him previously. After our first meeting I had no doubt that McRae would be my broker. His knowledge of local real estate and the speed with which he honed in on my requirements was amazing. McRae always had time for questions and often brought aspects of properties to my attention that I had not noticed on my own. McRae did a fantastic job from the beginning to the end of my real estate search!

We were so happy to have McRae Hilliard as our agent. The entire process was smooth and professional. From our first meeting, where he explained the process and rationale for pricing through the showings, sale, and closing he kept us informed, answered our questions quickly and completely. He was caring and considerate of my elderly mother in law who was making, for her, a monumental life change. Most importantly, he kept us fully in the loop of what was going on . His communications are excellent. We would recommend him to any friend or family member. We are 100% satisfied! Thank you,McRae , for making this whole process so easy and hassle free.

McRae is an exceptional Realtor. Being a native of Asheville, he is a literal Asheville Real Estate wikipedia (encyclopedia for the older folks). He is not only incredibly professional, but also very personable. He is proactive in advising and heading off any potential issues, and keeps in constant communication so that you never feel that you are behind or out of the loop. Having dealt with McRae previously on the purchase of the property I just sold, he was the only Realtor I considered. When I purchase property again in the Asheville area, McRae Hilliard will be my only call.

McRae Hilliard did an absolutely awesome job as our real estate agent. He was extremely knowledgeable of the Asheville area which was critical to us, since we are moving from NY and did not have a full understanding of the area. He was able to quickly understand our needs and desires in a house which made him very effective in finding the right houses for us to look at. McRae is honest, sincere, and always went out of his way to be responsive and understanding of our needs. Going through the process of looking for and purchasing a home is very stressful, and McRae did an excellent job of making the experience as stress free as possible. He is very friendly, and a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend McRae Hilliard to anyone in need of a real estate agent in the Asheville area. He is the BEST!

McRae was recommended to me by a business associate and I am extremely grateful for his recommendation. I am selling two homes in Asheville and I live in California so I am relying on McRae's expertise and he has been terrific. He is patient, very knowledgeable, supportive and has a consistently positive attitude. I have appreciated working with him on the sale of one home and now look forward to the close of the second home. I highly recommend McRae with no reservations.

We would definitely recommend McRae to anyone wanting to buy and sell homes in Asheville and Buncombe County. He worked diligently with us to do both. From start to finish, he was accessible. I especially appreciate his candor when it came to advising us, and he's an expert on the local market. Managing our complex closings in a short time-frame was done with calmness and good humor. With McRae, we feel like we not only found a great realtor, but we also made a good friend.

McRae is a hidden gem in the booming real estate market in the Asheville area. I moved to Asheville due to a job relocation and I was lucky enough to work with him. He was 3 steps ahead of the game for every aspect of my move, and far exceeded my expectations. Working with me, McRae has likely broken a local record with the amount of home showings in one day at 15! We viewed 15 different properties all planned and organized by McRae himself. We were on time for every viewing and he was kind enough to bring me along with my family to every single appointment and educate us on the area, the surroundings, and the overall attributes of the home. His communication, education, drive and passion is as good as it gets. And to top it off, he is a genuine stand up guy and a fun guy to be around.

McRae took the time to listen to our desires for a new house, found two within our budget & location within a few weeks, and steered us in a professional and caring way in an aggressive market. We were able to land a nice upgrade with many features we were searching for in our existing neighborhood without breaking the bank. McRae then listed our first home and we had multiple offers within the first three days. We decided quickly and settled on a cash offer with a quick closing. McRae was patient with us and answered all of our questions. He is extremely knowledgeable of the market and inventory in this area. He provided excellent guidance as we sold our first home. We would highly recommend him for his professionalism, knowledge, and results!

I would recommend McRae Hilliard to anyone hoping to sell their home in an efficient and timely manner. He has sold two homes for us in the last year, one our personal dwelling and the second a rental property. Throughout the sale of both properties he always responded in a timely manner to our questions, was considerate when addressing our needs, had multiple ideas for effectively improving the market value of the houses, and worked hard to encourage prospective buyers. He facilitated smooth closings for both properties. We interviewed a variety of agents prior to choosing McRae for our agent on the first sale, but have now found the best so will continue to use him as we sell future properties we own in the area.

Prior to my ownership of the property that was recently sold by McRae Hilliard, I had sold two other homes by myself. Both of these homes were smaller and easier to sell and I didn't have to pay broker commissions. This time, however, the home was in a much higher price bracket and I knew I was going to need professional guidance. The 6% commission came to a significant figure (ouch!) but, when taking in to consideration what McRae contributed to the final sale, it was definitely worth it. McRae brought my home to a larger market than I could have on my own, guided me to the perfect asking price and gave me advice during the price negotiations, all of which resulted in commanding a higher sales price and compensated for the "significant" commission fee. Add to that all the work he did as the go-between for the buyers and myself and I can comfortably say McRae earned his money. Thank you, McRae!

I am seventy years old and have had several real estate sales and rentals in my days. Some of our business was conducted in the Northeast section of the U.S...some in the South and a couple outside of the Continental U.S. We live in Puerto Rico and flew to North Carolina to settle my mother’s estate and sell her home after her death. A friend and neighbor of my parents recommended McRae Hilliard . We had no connection to real estate brokers in the area. We thought it would take at least a year to sell, giving the current market conditions. We talked to McRae and met with him the next day. He impressed us right away with his knowledge of the area, eagerness to understand our unique situation, help us with a marketing plan and get us on our way. Just over two weeks later we had an offer on our property. McRae detailed the unfamiliar rule of "Due Diligence” . After we told him how unfair we believed the rule is to sellers, he understood our position but convinced us we had no choice but to comply. Even though the house has sold, we still believe the market rules are out of balance in favor of buyers and crippling sellers ability to stay on the market. We settled the house at what we feel was a great price. The closing went smoothly. Out of all of our past real estate deals this was the most complicated. But, McRae paved the road to agreement from day one. He is our most professional real estate experience yet, friendly, persistent, knowledgable and there for you whenever needed. If ever we have need for real estate guidance we know who to call. If ever we have the opportunity to recommend a great broker, McRae Hilliard is our choice. To bad he doesn't have an office in Puerto Rico. We could us him.

We enjoyed working with McRae Hilliard to sell our home of 36 years. We feel like McRae knew the real estate market of the Fairview area and recognized the uniqueness of our house. This was evident in his suggestions of how to present the charm and warmth of the home without "over doing it". We felt like McRae was very thorough in explaining the process of selling, answered all our questions whenever we had them, and kept us informed at all times. We enjoyed working with McRae as he was at all times professional but also very personable. Even though we have known his wife and her family for many years before meeting McRae, this never changed the professional and business demeanor we experienced in the selling process. We highly recommend McRae Hilliard !

McRae Hilliard was absolutely the right choice to help me find my home. He is knowledgeable about real estate and the Asheville area. His attention to detail and keen memory are strong assets. He is very professional and extremely patient. I was not his easiest client. But after 8 months searching, I could not be more pleased with the lovely home I now own. It would not have happened without his guidance. In other words......... McRae Hilliard totally rocks!!!

We have known McRae since his high school days. His character and integrity has never waivered. His professionalism, intelligence, and knowledge of Asheville and surrounding areas is so important in the purchasing of a home. His longevity of being a broker certainly helps in the negotiating portion of the purchase. We appreciated his responding to our phone calls, e-mails, and texts in a timely matter. Although he puts in long hours, his family is always at the forefront and we too can relate to that lifestyle. Keep up the good work McRae! Jake and Pat

When we started working with McRae, my wife and I were first time home buyers and were completely new to the Asheville area. McRae's extensive knowledge of the local Asheville communities and how they have developed over time was extremely helpful to us. Once we narrowed down the areas we wanted to focus on, McRae made the process of buying a home from 8 hours away as easy as it could possibly have been. He was always available to screen homes for us so that we didn't have to travel into town every time a new listing came on the market. We never once got the feeling that he was trying to "sell" us on a house. If something wasn't right with a house he would call it to our attention, and that really made us feel that we had an advocate on our side, not just someone who was looking for a commission. He worked with us for about 5 months until we were able to get a house under contract, and was extremely patient with us the entire time. Where others may have shifted their focus once their commission was earned, McRae continued to work hard for us, attending inspections and walk throughs with contractors, and coordinating with the bank and closing attorneys. When working with McRae, we really didn't feel like we had to ask or convince him to do any of these things for us - he just did them because he's a professional and he knew what needed to be done in order to make everything go smoothly. We ended up buying a house in the Grove Park neighborhood and we're really excited to move in and get settled into the community. The best part is that after this long process, my wife and feel like we made a great friend. We'd definitely recommend McRae to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Asheville!
