Mike's competence as a realtor and his friendly disposition made working with him an excellent experience. He is very thorough and followed up after every contact. His confidence in his ability to sell our home eased our insecurities while we waited for our home to sell. Being an Asheville native, Mike is very familiar with the area and has a large number of contacts, both of which were advantages to us as sellers and as buyers. Thanks, Mike!

Mike was a pleasure to work with. He really knows this area and is an experienced hand at the whole real estate process. I was thinking of listing my house at a price that was actually lower than where Mike thought we should start. I went with his suggestion and it sold at full price! We all know that's not going to be the case often, but the fact is if I had tried to sell this myself to "save money on fees", I would have ended up with less.

We had searched for a home in the No. Asheville, Beaverdam, Norwood and Grove Park area for 18 mos. using another broker without success. We switched to Mike and within a week we had 3 properties that interested us. Two of the 3 fell through during inspection/negotiations but with Mike's (and his staff) persistence we finalized a deal on a nice comfortable home. As a lifelong resident of Asheville, his knowledge of this market is unsurpassed. He is a congenial personality and through this process we developed a friendship. He is very conscious of service after the sale as well -- suggesting things to do, people to meet, vets/MDs/DMDs, and contractors. Less ... More

We contacted Mike to sell our home because of the great experience we had in mid-2009 when he helped us buy the home.On both occasions Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with- the perfect balance of professionalism, personal warmth and knowledge of the Asheville, NC community. Mike is clearly highly respected by his peers which made all dealings with other brokers and agents very straightforward. His long-time connections in our community meant that hiring workmen on his recommendation, to complete work orders such as for a window replacement or oil tank removal, could be done with complete peace of mind. In addition, he hired a videographer whose work truly captured all that was special about our home. The fact that we went back to Mike to sell our home is the best recommendation we can offer.

Thanks so much for the great review, Steve and Shaw!! Now I need to review you.... You both were a joy to work with when you purchased years ago and when we sold last month. I hope we remain buddies for the duration, and as I said before, I hope to see you in the future in the great Pacific Northwest!! We can talk about books and authors!!

Mike was most helpful. He was very knowledgable of the area and market values. His biggest asset, I think, was in NOT trying to oversell and being very understanding of our needs. We was always available when we had questions or concerns. Buying a house is a difficult and stressful endeavor and Mike made the process less stressful from the first time we met ... And on to the closing. A lasting friendship was created. I highly recommend Mike Miller and his associates if you are looking to acquire property in this area. Less ... More

I've worked with realtors around the country and Mike is hands down the best real-estate professional I have encountered. I was new to the area. Mike was able to clarify the nuances of the market here. His local knowledge, both historic and natural, was also a great help, aiding me in my decisions. I continue to value his friendship and advice concerning the local market And I love my home!

This is the third house I have sold with Town and Mountain Realty. Every time has gone flawlessly! Mike and the folks at Town and Mountain are good people, good neighbors and many know Asheville like the back of their hands. Mike certainly does, being an Asheville native. I personally appreciated both Miles' expertise and his laid back style. He gets the job done professionally and yet we easily laughed along the way. He is very accessible, and I really appreciated that too. Mike is also a calming influence when things get tough during the selling process. My 3rd sell went like this: Listed on MLS on Monday @ 10:00 am - First showing @ 6:30 that evening! Next morning @ 9:00 am a full price offer on the house. Now I ask you? Could it get much better than that?! I respect Mike and his family, they are good down to earth people. Town and Mountain Realty is a successful Asheville business built over the years through hard work, integrity, and being community supporters is many ways. The Millers deserve every bit of the success they realize, it is well earned. Less ... More

The housing market in our price range in Asheville is highly competitive. The house we ended up buying had multiple offers and without Mike's professional guidance and negotiation skills we likely would not have succeeded in closing.

From the first moment of our initial telephone call to the time we closed on our house, we knew we had found a true advocate in Mike Miller. He made himself immediately available to us, showing numerous properties, answering countless emails, phone calls and texts and writing up offers and counter offers. Even though we were first-time homebuyers, my husband and I felt completely at ease through the entirety of what could have been a very intimidating and stressful process. Mike walked us through every single aspect of buying our home. His patience with and generosity towards our 5-year-old child was just icing on an already wonderful cake! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mike Miller to anyone! Less ... More

I'll always be grateful to a friend who introduced me to Mike before we moved to Asheville. In addition to being personally great to relate to, Mike knows Asheville and is alert to nuances of location, history and development trends that may impact on a buyer's decisions. When there were some potentially complex title issues on a property I was considering, Mike introduced me to on of the best real estate lawyers in town. He has also had valuable suggestions about where to get counsel on mortgages. I've relocated several times and have never worked with anyone who tops Mike for being more interested in finding what's right for the customer than what he would make out of the deal. Less ... More

Mike Miller, Town & Mountain Realty, is an expert on Asheville. He has extensive knowledge of the area and housing. He has lived there all of his life. We were treated to terrific insight of the housing, markets and individual areas working with Mike. We have returned to our home state and are in the process of selling our current home. Thereafter, we will return to Asheville to find a home to purchase. Mike will be our agent. We look forward to the experience.

Mike Miller is a very resourceful Realtor. He not only knew the areas of town very well but he knew a lot of the people that live in the different areas. The house he helped us find had not even hit the MLS - he is well connected. He is also very personable and made shopping for a house with 3 boys under 10 easy. We highly recommend Mike!

I was Executor of my Uncle's property which was over an hour away from where I lived. With that being the case I was expecting to be taking alot of time running back & forth to oversee things. Mike was a godsend: he took care of evrything & contacted me immediately with any latest developments. Aside from being a real professional he is also one of the friendliest, most down to earth people that I've come accross in business. I can't imagine any other agent who would do a better job. I highly recommend Mike. Less ... More

I have been working with Mike Miller since I moved to Asheville 10 years ago. I have been a Real Estate Appraiser for 27 years, and therefore have first hand knowledge of working with many Realtors. However I have worked with Mike exclusively as a client of his, not as an Appraiser. Based on my personal experience with Mike and his support staff, I can safely say that as far as his knowledge of the local market, his attentiveness to my needs, and the support of his staff, has been without exception, a wonderful experience.

We were very satisfied with Mike Miller's care and attention while our house was on the market and during the selling process. He was prompt to respond to our questions and concerns and provided calm and logical advice at every stage. He went above and beyond helping us with last minute difficulties while we were out of town or simply overwhelmed by the moving process. I highly recommend him as an agent who knows the area well and who provides individualized attention to his clients.

Mike has been my agent in two home purchases so I am well qualified to comment on his services. With Mike, you can count on a true professional both because of his experience in the field and because he is so sensitive to the needs of his clients. He is always available to talk by phone or in person, he is prompt and reliable, he is a strong negotiator and his people skills are outstanding. My last move presented me with some difficult issues but Mike was able to work with all parties so that everything was resolved and everyone ended up happy. Were I to move again, I would call Mike first thing. Less ... More

Mike Miller sold my home in Asheville last year. I knew that he would be the one to do it. It was such a pleasure to work with him. Mike really knows the real estate market and is so well respected around town. I found that he was so easy to deal with and never felt any pressure about making a decision, when it came to negotiations. His staff at his office were also great and very professional. I would not have any hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

I purchased a home in the Asheville area in March of 2011. Mike was there for me every inch of the way. It was my first home purchase of my life. My late husband and I built our only home years and years ago in South Carolina. So everything about relocation was all new to me. Mike recommended the very best of the best home renovators. Since it is an older home, I had lots of work to get done. The best thing I can say about Mike is that I respect him and I trust him. He was in my corner the whole time, and I also thoroughly enjoyed meeting his family and other staff members at Town and Mountain. I have visited the Asheville area most all of my long life, and have always loved the mountains. Now, a year after the purchase and renovations, I am even more in love with my home. It has brought me joys that I could never have imagined. Less ... More

Mike gave me an excellent sales experience in selling my Mountain House. He was an expert in all phases of my sale. Quick, attentive, knowledgeable service. How can I say it better than "In just 10 days in a soft market, Mile MIller sold my house for the price I wanted to a cash buyer, with a expidited closing".

Mike, was the best realtor I have worked with and I have worked with at least 7. He was patience and informed on all properties I looked at. He was very reponsive to any information I needed - lawyers, carpenters, home inspectors, banks and mortagage companies. He helped us fine the best place for our budget and needs. I would certainly recommend him to everyone. Experienced and easy to work with - he made it a pleasure to find a home.

We lived in another city and needed to sell family residence in Asheville. After interviewing and getting proposals from three realators selected Mike with Town and Mountain Realty. Mike was very helpful making recommendations and assisting in preparing the property for sale. He effectively marketed the property and negotiated with an out of town buyer and her agent. Was wery helpful in taking care of all inspections and other requirements and details related to closing. I was very pleased with Mike and felt we received a fair price for the property at a challenging time in the market. Less ... More

Once again Mike has come through; Not only did Mike secure a great offer for my house, but he did so in the dead of Winter, and after being on the market for only about a week. This now makes three properties that Mike has sold for me. I continue to sing the praises of Mike to all of my friends, as well as to you; What a guy.

Mike Miller's skills and expertise have made buying the two houses he has found, negotiated and completed the process with excellent oversight and extensive knowledge of the real estate business a pleasant and rewarding experience. He actually made the process fun! We would recommend Mike and his team at Town and Mountain without reservation. M. Milner and T. Bruns
