Jon is a friendly, professional, responsive and skilled realtor across the board! I needed to find a place FAST, and he stepped right in and worked hard to make it happen - I was actually able to find a place and move in within 1 month! It's very important, when you spend as much time with a person as you do when you're looking at houses, to be in the company of someone with great people skills, and Jon absolutely does. And just a side note: his mother, Frances Corbin, who works with Jon, is equally as nice, responsive and professional. If Jon was ever unable to be somewhere, Frances was always there with a smile on her face, ready to help. I love these two! Less ... More

Great agent! Patient, hard working, listened carefully to our needs. Very straight forward and trustworthy. We found the right place with lots of work and very importantly he stayed on top of all the follow up details to make the purchase process easy. Everything worked smoothly. It was our 5th home purchase around the country and it was the best and least stressful process of all. A lot due to Jon's work style- relaxed , supportive, patient and thoroughly. Top recommendation. Found him on the web and were completely satisfied. Less ... More

Jon helped us find our dream home in Fletcher, NC. He was very laid-back and we saw a good number of houses. His style fit well with my and my wife's way of browsing houses--we tend to like to talk and think about the house without a lot of interference, and Jon is among the least pushy realtors I've met. He is always ready with expertise on everything from construction quality to local amenities, but he does not say much if you don't ask for it. For us, this was a big plus. He was also great about letting us see properties that we browsed online (we moved here from out of town). I also like that Jon only represents buyers. This fact keeps at bay the conflicts of interest that are rampant in this industry. If you're considering working with an agent who represents both sellers and buyers, please remember that your agent may favor/push certain properties simply because they stand to profit more from selling them to you. With Jon, you don't have to worry about this--he simply doesn't represent sellers. Ever. Overall, if you're moving to somewhere Jon is willing to help you buy a house, you really can't go wrong.

Jon was excellent. He helped my wife and I buy a great house in a very competitive market. Jon was always available to answer questions via text, email, and phone. And, when we put an offer on our house or had to iron-out contract details, he stayed up way past business hours to make sure things got done. I think we were communicating with Jon at 11:00PM one evening to get an e-contract signed! What's more, Jon was also able to find good local brokers and inspectors. When our initial loan fell through, Jon recommended a local broker who pulled out all the stops for us. His knowledge of local resources was v. useful. Lastly, I found Jon pleasant to work with on a personal level -- something that I find important. Thank you Jon! Less ... More

I worked with Jon to purchase a home for my daughter. She was out of the country and I live in Michigan. He kept us up to date -- I think he doesn't sleep. When I traveled to Asheville he was responsive to all my questions and has been extremely helpful with all the details involved with the purchase. In addition, he is a kind gentleman. I would recommend him to everyone.

We were new to NC & did not have any orientation to the area when we first arrived. Jon was helpful in many ways from the beginning with a community tour that helped us feel out each unique area surrounding AVL. We appreciate his knowledge and pressure-free, relaxed attitude. It was as smooth as I have ever experienced house buying to be!

My husband and I were about to start searching for a home, and were excited about everything except finding a realtor- we had had some rough experiences with realtors in the past and were nervous about finding one here, especially being new to the area. We got in touch with Jon, and from the beginning we knew this would be a different experience. Jon was down to earth, extremely knowledgeable, honest and extremely easy to work with. We can't express enough what a great experience it was working with him, and if ever we sell our home one day, we won't hesitate in knowing who to contact. Less ... More

When the time came for my fiancé and me to search for and purchase a new home, I thought of Jon Corbin right away and knew I didn't want to work with any other broker. He is simply the best in the business. Jon's reputation is stellar, and he didn't disappoint. Specifically, Jon met with me individually to talk about what we were looking for, sent us information about homes, checked in regularly, responded quickly to my many questions, and helped me every step of the way when we found the perfect place. He was always kind, patient, and honest; his character and values reflect a genuine goodness and care for others that is hard to find in the business world these days. Thanks entirely to Jon's professionalism, negotiation skills, and ability to navigate with ease a very complex system, we are now living in our dream house! Less ... More

Our entire experience, from our first meeting with Jon to the closing date, was amazing. He is professional, sincere, understanding, patient and most importantly a NICE person. We were first time home buyer's so it was important that we found an agent that was familiar with the market, trends, neighborhoods, processes and overall knowledge of the industry, and Jon was the perfect match. I appreciated his unbiased, open opinions which made our final decision feel unforced and perfect. Thanks Jon! Less ... More

When my family was planning to move to Asheville, Jon Corbin of The Buyer?s Agent took on the fairly impossible task of finding a home that met all of our initial criteria: a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, newly constructed or ?newer? move-in ready home, close to the city and on a very modest budget. When he heard our list of ?needs? he did not laugh or scoff. He set about finding us our ideal property, and he did so with exceptional patience, a keen knowledge of the area, a wealth of referrals, unparalleled professionalism, and remarkable diligence. Throughout our hunt for a new home, Jon helped us to avoid costly mistakes when engaging with sellers? agents, developers, and builders. He willingly aided us by stating our concerns and opinions during meetings, and he even followed up after meetings to make sure we understood our options. Jon was regularly prompt when responding to emails and calls, and he was always on time (or called ahead) for appointments. We feel very fortunate to have had Jon working with us when we faced a few disappointing bumps in our house search. He never failed to be supportive, and he helped us to remain positive throughout an otherwise frustrating process. In the end, we did not move into the exact house we initially set out to find, but my family and I feel that Jon helped us to get a home perfectly suited for us. Less ... More

Jon Corbin, without a doubt, is Asheville's BEST buyer's agent, in my opinion. My sister and I spent the better part of 3 months looking for a home. We looked at a lot of properties, hemmed and hawed, changed our mines, thought we knew what we wanted but it took us awhile to know what we needed--big difference. I personally would have gone nuts if I had been "our" realtor, but throughout the entire process, Jon was patient, supportive, helpful...and FUN. And best of all, we ended up with exactly what we wanted. Couldn't have done it without him!J Less ... More

Jon helped my sister and I find a house. It was tricky because we had very specific space needs and knew the neighborhood we wanted to be in. We worked with Jon for 2-3 months looking at various homes before we found one that worked for us. Through the entire process he was delightful to work with. He is patient, professional and very available. He gave us good advice when we asked and was never pushy. He never made us feel like we were wasting his time. It was obvious that his goal was to get us a house that we were happy with. Less ... More

Our home buying experience with Jon was extremely satisfying. He was a great advocate for us and really focused on our needs. It was a very stressful time in our lives as we were relocating from a different state and Jon took care of every detail for us. It was a very pleasant positive experience. We would definitely work with him in the future.

I highly recommend Jon for anyone looking to buy a house. He is very knowledgeable of Asheville and the surrounding areas. I was very picky on what I wanted for a house and the area I wanted to live in. It took 2 years to find a house that fit my criteria and never once did Jon lose patience with me. He always had a positive attitude that we would find the right place. Another agent would have been pressuring me and probable would have lost interest. Again, if you are looking for a house I recommend Jon. Barry Less ... More

My husband and I were not the easiest of clients. We are experienced home buyers with a long list of expectations and an even longer list of well-defined criteria important to us. Jon rose to the challenge, and the outcome was that we bought a house perfect for us. Jon is the total package in what one looks for in a real estate agent. He was professional, knowledgeable, PATIENT, at every stage of the process from house selection, to house inspections, to initial contracts, to final sale. He provided us with good counsel throughout and after the sale. Jon is the real deal --- and we recommend without hesitation. Less ... More

I have the highest regard for Jon Corbin. He and I recently worked on a purchase outside of Asheville, NC. This was my third home purchase, and Jon is simply a different kind of agent. After promising myself I wouldn't end a real estate transaction feeling dissatisfied anymore, I did my research on the internet and learned the distinct advantage of working with a true buyer's agent that doesn't list any homes. Then I found Jon by using Zillow and reading the reviews. As other's have mentioned, when Jon shows you houses, he quietly lets you assess the properties yourself rather than pushing you in any direction. Jon explained that he wouldn't be serving his fiduciary duty to push you on any house. He is the most honest real estate person I have ever dealt with. He knows his business and gives exceptional advice regarding obtaining pricing that is to the buyer's advantage instead of the seller's. If I ever buy another home in the area, Jon is the person I would work with. I've never thought that about anyone else. Less ... More

I came from Seattle WA to visit Asheville in Oct. 2011. I was introduced by a dear friend to Jon Corbin...the Buyer's Agent...and it was the best real estate experience I have ever encountered! Within 3 weeks of working with Jon...I had purchased a beautiful home in Historic Montford...returned to Seattle...completed the purchase...and am looking forward to moving and living in Asheville.

I've worked with many real estate agents and this was my best experience ever. Jon is friendly and knowledgeable. He actually listens to what it is you're looking for and then focuses on those properties. He didn't try to talk me into looking at homes that didn't match my criteria or were outside my preferred price range. He was not pushy, but once I made a decision, he stayed on top of the process, always advocating for me.

Jon valued my time when scheduling appointments and looking for the "right" home for me. He responded quickly and concisely to all my questions and requests for information. Jon was recommended by a friend of mine, and I have since recommended him to several others. Thank you, Jon, for finding me the perfect home so quickly. Leslie Less ... More

I can't speak highly enough of the experience I had working with Jon. He is a local, and knows Asheville inside and out. He provided good insight and worked to help me find the home I was looking for. He is prompt to answer questions and is readily available. I am a first time homebuyer, and he walked me through every step of the process. I am tied up with work most of the day, and Jon did most of the legwork during the transaction so I didn't have to. I got an incredible deal due to his knowledge of the market and the negotiation process. There were several instances when he went above and beyond what one would expect of an agent when I was having issues with my lender in order to meet my closing date. I have worked with a lot of professionals in various fields, but Jon stands out and has my highest recommendation. Less ... More

Also, I have known Jon for virtually all of his 13 years of experience, and I have referred many people to him. They all rave about him. He makes house hunting as easy as it can be.

We would give our highest recommendation for anyone interested in buying a house in the greater Asheville area to use Jon and his extensive talents. Jon very patiently deciphered our needs and matched us up with the best house possible for our family. I think his focus as only a "buyer's agent" provides an extra level service than you would expect from your typical real estate agent who focuses on a wide range of properties to buy and sell.

Jon Corbin assisted us in the purchase of our first home 12 years ago and 13 acres of land 4 years ago. He is the most amazing agent with whom we have worked. He is extremely professional, knowledgable, personable and efficient. He is exceptionally trustworthy and "down to earth". We have recommended him to many of our friends over the years and have recieved the same feedback from them as well. If you are a buyer, I would not chose any other agent.

Jon worked with us for many months as we searched for a second home. He was very knowledgeable about the community, the market, the buying process-- everything about the buying experience. My wife and I have bought and sold six properties and have now purchased a seventh. In those thirteen transactions we have seen what can go wrong and what can go right. This was by far the easiest and most satisfactory real estate transaction we have experienced. What we most appreciated was that Jon quickly discerned what features were most important to us and helped us find properties that fit those requirements. He was always willing to accommodate our wishes, but after a short time he directed us toward properties that he thought we might like even though they had not cought our eye. In every case, he was right and we ended up choosing a property that looked less than appealing on the internet but which fit our needs exactly. I will emphasize that he was in no way pushy or directive but worked hard to hear what we wanted and to help us find it. In addition, Jon was extremely helpful in many ways that went well beyond the minimum. On top of that he is funny and very personable. I have seen real estate agents that pushed us toward what was most profitable for them, agents who repeatedly suggested properties that showed they had not heard a thing we had said, and agents who could not be bothered extending any effort. If this review sounds a bit too enthusiastic, that comes not from a lack of experience, but because it is so amazing when you find someone who stands above the rest. Less ... More

After an unsatisfactory experience with Beverly-Hanks, which included poor communication, slow responses, and inept home showings, we decided to switch realtors. Jon Corbin came highly recommended. We were first time homebuyers and couldn't have found a better teammate. Not only did we buy the very first home he showed us (which showed us he was listening to what we wanted), he also gave honest feedback as we weighed options and made big decisions.

When I was in the market for buying a home in late 2008, I found Jon Corbin's card at my place of business and gave him a call. Right off the bat he was extremely helpful and patient with all of my inquisitions (and I ask way too many questions!) little did I know I was talking to the owner not to one of his agents. I was so impressed that the owner gave me so much of his time just to answer my questions over the phone. After that conversation we knew we would find no one better than Jon to help us in our search for our first home. Jon is committed to searching for the perfect house. We sent him our needs, wants and price range and he sent us listings that fit. Other agents I had worked with in the past, consistently sent things out of our price range which was very frustrating. Being first time home buyers, we didn't know the process and Jon walked us through every step, providing helpful suggestions to get us to that wonderful day of closing. And Jon's support did not end on that day, he is always willing to help with anything that comes up. I have recommended Jon to several friends who have also bought houses with him and had a wonderful experience as well. I highly recommend Jon as an agent, he will rise above every expectation!
