As an Exclusive Buyer's Agency/Firm, CabinQuest proudly offers 100%, undivided loyalty assisting Buyers with identifying and evaluating properties, negotiating price and terms, obtaining financing, arranging inspections, and more. As a true 'EBA', CabinQuest does not accept property listings, so no dual/designated agency situations will arise which may cause you, or your referrals, discomfort. As you may be aware, there are no "extra" fees to the Buyer for our services - our fees are paid as a commission split with the seller's listing agent at closing.

With MLS access to all of Western NC, the scope of our services includes the areas: Asheville, Brevard, Bryson City, Fontana Lake, Franklin, Hot Springs, Lake Lure, Maggie Valley, Murphy, Nantahala Lake, Sylva, Waynesville - all the way to into the N. Georgia and TN mountains. For those International referrals, our Broker-in-Charge is a native Spanish-speaker, is TRC-certified, a CIPS network member, candidate to receive the coveted Certified International Property Specialist designation, and is experienced in international transactions.

You'll also be happy to hear that, while many business people think that the most important job is to satisfy the customer, our philosophy is that Client satisfaction is the minimum requirement for simply staying in business. We work constantly to become further educated in our craft, refine processess and improve service levels well beyond the standard levels of service provided in the industry.
