Rob Harriger

Everyone at Owners Only Real Estate was such an enormous help!

Buying a home was a daunting new process for me and I was given so much thorough and transparent information and assistance with every step. Because of their insight and expertise, I was able to find and make the move on a home that I love. I would highly recommend Owners Only Real Estate for anyone looking to buy or sell!

Sunset Appleton

My husband and I can't say enough good things about this company.

They were so easy to work with and honestly restored our faith in realtors. We had a terrible experience with our last agent and when we decided to sell our current home knew we would go with someone new. Jason was amazing every step of the process and everyone on his team was great too! They responded to every call/email quickly and didn't mind answering my insane questions. Shout out to Valerie for all of her help in getting paperwork done and making sure our buyers agent was on top of everything. If you want to sell your home call them! You won't regret that decision.

Would definitely recommend them!

I was quite pleased with the professional service provided by the Owners Only Real Estate firm.

All were quite patient, courteous, and responsive as needed. They were particularly conscientious, and I appreciate their diligence and them keeping me informed of developments as they occurred.

Al and Linda Chatman

"Jason and the team at Owners Only were super professional and not pushy.

They got me a much higher selling price than other realtors thought they could get. It was a very pleasant profit to an investment I had bought before the last 2007-2008 crash, and I had lost hopes of making a profit but Jason helped me get a large profit."

Jason DellaVecchia

Jason and his team are wonderful to work with!

We have used them to sell two of our homes - they are responsive, knowledgeable, excellent problem solvers and nice people. We highly recommend them!

Suzanne and Dave Donovan (repeat clients)

Owners Only Real Estate provided stellar service and have my highest recommendation.

They walked me through the process of selling my home step-by-step, made sure I knew what to expect, and offered expert advice that helped me through the negotiations. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and made the selling of my home seamless, and my home was under contract within 24 hours!

Nicole Smith

Thank you Jason!

Not only are you the most persistent person I've ever encountered but the most honest, truthful, and reliable as well. It's been an honor letting you work your mojo. You delivered more than I could ever expect. I will alway recommend you and your staff and you know you are my guy now that I will be looking again soon to repurchase. Thank you Jason, I'm proud to call you friend.

Jason and his team made my whole selling experience the absolute easiest process I've ever been through.

From first contact through to the closing, they were in touch every step of the way. Jason's method for showings and determining the best selling price were spot on. My house had two days of showings and we had an offer the next day. The team at Owners Only is very friendly and knowledgeable and always available for any and all of your real estate needs. I wish all real estate transactions were this easy. I couldn't be happier!

Cathy West

They've helped me buy and sell several properties and they're always professional and have great local knowledge.

A great team to work with!

John Bonwitt (repeat client)

"Being that I was a client that lived in a different state from my home that I was selling which could have made the process much more difficult, Jason and Valerie were there from the beginning step-by-step with the sale of my home.

Always kept in touch, gave me great advice, very patience, and was diligent. If I could give 10 stars I would ... best and easy experience I had selling my home." -Cyance

Cyance McCargo

The team at Owners Only Real Estate are consummate professionals.

Diligent, responsive, and thorough in all respects, they made our home search as easy as it can be. They know the market, know Asheville and the surrounding areas, and are knowledgeable negotiators who worked tirelessly on our behalf. They have our highest endorsement.

Michael and Pat Jones

Working with Owners Only Real Estate was effortless even though I was far away from the location of the property.

There were many personal obstacles to consider as well. They took care of everything. The sale was quick because they didn’t waste a moment getting to work! They will work hard for you too. They are also honest. Honesty and integrity is difficult to find in real estate. I will work with them again!

Melissa Maloy

"I can't say enough about the results of Jason's marketing strategy.

He sold my house in a week after it had sat still on a previous listing for 4 months. Working with these guys was a pleasure. The support from Valerie, at the office , is definitely worth mentioning. If you want confidence and results in selling your property, these are your guys."

Pete Falbo

I couldn’t be happier with how smoothly this went for me, especially from a distance.

I never imagined it would be so easy or happen so quickly. I was actually pretty emotional about it yesterday, because this was a bittersweet sale for me. I had a lot of great memories from that home and hope the new owners will be equally as happy there as I was. I’ve posted a review on Zillow and on Facebook. I will definitely recommend Owners Only Real Estate to anyone else who has real estate needs. Thanks for making this a great experience! Christy

How To Sell Your Real Estate When you’re fortunate enough to own real estate you realize that there is an enormous amount of responsibility involved.

And in the buying and selling of such there is even more required of the owner. Recently my wife and I sold a cabin we owned in the western North Carolina mountains. In the latter years of our life we decided to sell due to our living out of state and the responsibility required to maintain our treasure. How do you handle such a situation? Having had some experience from being a broker myself (many years ago!) there was some confusion and hesitation as how to begin. There were individuals who told me emphatically they wanted to purchase the cabin; however, I realized early on that they were not going to follow through with their earlier statements. And, there was no sense of urgency on their side. Out of frustration and needing to move forward, I listed the property on Zillow and various For Sale by Owner websites. Two things happened: my phone was overwhelmed by interested Buyers and at the same time I was approached by the Real Estate community to list our cabin with them. Handling those interested in seeing the property was a problem because we lived 5 hours away. Most of the agents were with the usual firms present in today’s real estate community. However, there was one agent and firm that stood out above the competition: Jason Brodsky of OWNERS ONLY REAL ESTATE, 828-490-1510. Jason shared with us a plan to sell our property within the first month of the listing and backed it up with a 30 day Listing. The amazing thing was the amount of online viewings I saw from the first day forward - on some days there were over a Thousand hits on one platform. Even more important were the number of showings registered - we stopped counting around the number 50. At the end of the month there were 5 offers to choose from. We listed the property on April 15, 2024 and closed on May 21, 2024. The team at OWNERS ONLY REAL ESTATE were constantly in touch with us from photography, marketing, advertising, and paperwork on the contractual side. Also, they managed the scheduling of inspections during the Due Diligence and handled any issues occurring during the acceptance of the contract up to closing. In conclusion, if you wish to know how to sell your real estate in today’s market atmosphere, call Jason at the number listed above and ask him to explain to you his method for selling real estate successfully in today’s market! I’m telling you, honestly, that it worked very well for us! Why can’t it be the same for you! Frank and Sandy McDaniel

Frank and Sandy Mcdaniel

I want to thank you and your team for making this process and smooth transition despite of being out of state.

You guys did a wonderful job. Valerie and Doug were a pleasure to work with and I will definitely recommend your company to anyone! You guys get a big thumbs up from me! Thanks again for everything!

Eunice Albertini

I very much enjoyed working with Owners Only Real Estate.

They sold my house in Candler for me and they were great at negotiating with buyers. They went out of their way to work with me to make sure that I was able to get what I needed financially from the sale of the house. I would highly recommend Owners Only Real Estate to anyone looking to work with a down to earth real estate team who are experts in their field.

Nicole Almeida

"I appreciate your help selling my properties!

I was ably to pay off my home on Lake Keowee after selling my properties in NC, so have been able to live debt free since. I play pickleball, swim, and boat. Thanks for being a part of selling my property! May God bless you and your family and bless and prosper your company."

Virginia Mattson (repeat client)

I live out of state and needed help!

Jason and the staff at Owners Only Real Estate took on the challenge of preparing and marketing a property I needed to sell even though I couldn't travel there. As some matters arose, the Owners Only team managed to resolve them professionally and impressively. My only regret I have is that I only had the one home for them to sell. Highly Recommend!

Terry Stewart

"Owners Only Real Estate was phenomenal.

They got us our dream home and worked with us through the ups and downs and difficulties of navigating such an enormous and sometimes complex purchase. They are exceptionally patient and kind. We recommend them if you’re house hunting in WNC!"

Landon and Becky Robinson

Thank you, Jason.

If we had to sell our home in Candler again we would absolutely work with you and can recommend you without any hesitation.

Mr. Lewis

It was a pleasure working with you on the sale of 53 Indiana Ave and 53 Strathmore.

I hope you know how much we appreciate your contributions towards these successful closings. It is demonstrated service, such as yours, that elevates our collective professional reputation. Thank you. We look forward to co-brokering many sales with you in the years to come.

Debbie Williams Vice President/General Manager Beverly-Hanks and Associates

Thanks for coming by today, I appreciate what you are doing and I have faith and believe that you are generating innovative ideas and vision for selling in these times, and I know that you and everyone at Owners Only Real Estate are committed to the sale of my property.

Jaimie Blue

We are so glad we went with Owners Only Real Estate!

They were a pleasure to work with and very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. They have an excellent marketing approach, and because of their marketing strategy we had 4 solid offers (SOME CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN ASKING PRICE) within 3 days of listing! If we ever sell property again, we WILL use Owners Only Real Estate, NO question!!

Ellen Hardee

Jason and his team at Owners Only Real Estate were very professional and made the process of selling my home very easy from start to closing; his strategy with asking price and a brief showing window with an offer deadline generated significant interest and competing offers above asking price, and they were strong advocates for my terms all the way through.

When I sell again, I will undoubtedly trust Owners Only Real Estate... they know what they are doing in this competitive market.

Derek Rinaldo

"I couldn’t have asked for a better agent.

I was trying to sell a home that not only needed a lot of work, but a house that had a lot of “junk” on the property. Everyone at this office was so professional and stayed on top of things. No matter what the situation was, I was always emailed or called back with an answer and/or an update. Thank you all for such an amazing experience and for the friendships made as well! "

Tonya Webb

Thank you for the opportunity to work together on the sale of 1533 Fork Creek Road in Saluda.

I, along with the rest of our team here at Weichert Realtors appreciate the expertise and expediency in which this transaction was handled. It’s always a pleasure to work with an organization of your caliber and expertise and we hope to do so again in the future.

Tim Ertzberger Principal Broker Weichert Realtors

We've hired Owners Only Real Estate twice and both times they brought us more than we'd expected!

They make the process EASY. We've recommended them to several of our friends and they've always delivered! 5 Stars!

John and Suzanne Diehl (repeat clients)

I truly regret not using Jason Brodsky as my selling agent.

If I had, I would have not only made more money, but also saved myself so much time and agony. Jason didn't tell me what I wanted to hear. He's honest and accurate. He gives you the unvarnished truth. I ended up going with another agent who did tell me what I wanted to hear, and I believe basically fed me a line of BS to secure me as a client. Jason doesn't do that. He's honest, and he's skilled. I was looking to sell my 27.75 acre property with two houses 35 minutes from Asheville. I called Jason. My mother (who lived in one of the houses, while my children and I lived in the other), and I liked Jason immediately. He was friendly and communicative, easy to talk to. He took a look at both houses and recommended we put them on the market at $700K, create a bidding war, and get them sold for more than $700,000. He showed us his methodology, and he had a detailed plan. Here comes the awful part. I then talked to another realtor. A "land specialist." In trying to sell this property, I came across several land specialists. They show up projecting a cross between Hemingway and Indiana Jones, I wouldn't be surprised to see one in jodhpurs and tweeds. The impression they're trying for is "gentleman farmer." They do a lot of implying they run in wealthy circles among a jet set crowd whose passion is snapping up land for cash, that they have only to make a phone call to get you a cash offer. The land specialist recommended I put the property on the market for $950K. I therefore chose him as a rep over Jason. It was sheer numbers. $950 is more than $700. That was my thinking. It was as simple as that. The property languished on the market with lots of showings but no offers for three months at $950,000. I took out a loan for living expenses while I waited for it to sell. My agent was content to let it languish. He thought he was doing a great job. After three months, I dropped the price. I think I dropped it to $799K the first time. Lots of showings but no offers. I dropped it again. Same thing: showings but no offers. Then I dropped it a third time. This time I dropped it to Brodsky's recommendation. About a week after dropping it to Brodsky's recommended price, I had a viable offer. Brodsky was right. And I would have saved thousands on living expenses and a loan had I simply engaged him from the start. I also would have made more money. Rather than coming from a position of weakness I would have come from a position of strength. Finally, I would not have lived through the nearly five month of anxiety and stress had I initially gone with Brodsky's accurate recommendation. I am so impressed that he was so dead-on accurate regarding my sale price. This was not an easy property to price and he nailed it. I also feel terrible that he was penalized in this instance for being honest and good at his job. As someone who is honest and tries to do a good job with everything I do, this killed me. I do firmly believe, however, that any professional's reputation depends on the long game. For example, I will use Brodsky in the future for sure if I can. The land guy who sold me false promises, I don't want anything more to do with. Honesty and skill matter!

Loretta M.

We highly recommend Owners Only Real Estate.

Jason, Valerie and Doug were wonderful to work with. They had a quick response time and were professional and supportive every step of the way. We wouldn’t think twice about using them again!

Nikki Maims

Without a doubt, Owners Only Real Estate are the very best at what they do.

Not only did they accomplish the task of selling my house in record time, the professionalism and attention to detail far surpassed my expectations.

"These guys are the DREAM TEAM of real estate sales.

PROMISES were made and MIRACLES were delivered! I could not be happier! You will not find another company that can sell your property for a higher amount."

Tara Holbert

Owners Only Real Estate was a pleasure to work with.

They were personable, responsive and possess an excellent knowledge of the Asheville market. Their approach worked really well for us and they were always available to take our calls and answer our questions. And they never gave up. They never got discouraged or stopped working hard for us. We couldn’t be happier. William A. Saupe and Pamela Dupius

William A. Saupe and Pamela Dupius

After interviewing six companies in the Asheville area, we found Owners Only Real Estate.

They spent time answering all our questions, providing objective data regarding the market, homes in our area and tons of comps. The Owners Only Real Estate team is amazing! They are so knowledgeable, positive and optimistic. Our house was under contract in less than a week!! Their closing coordinator walked us through the process every step of the way. They stayed on top of things, followed up as necessary and were a pleasure to work with! I recommend Owners Only Real Estate and think you would be hard pressed to find a better team of professionals!

Laura and Hartley Haug

Jason and his team went above and beyond to support us during our home shopping and buying experience.

They communicated through every step and helped us make solid choices. They tailored the whole process to our needs. Jason was welcoming to our family of four and even ok that we brought our kids with us!

Dan and Natalie Rochester

If you're looking to sell your house, I highly recommend the talented team at Owners Only Real Estate.

They went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were answered, that we knew exactly what the process was (since we were brand new to selling), and negotiated the best possible deal for us. We ended up with multiple offers over asking price, which was proof that the Owners Only Real Estate pricing strategy was a home run. Owners Only Real Estate is professional and fantastic to work with! Buying or selling, I'd recommend Owners Only to anyone!

Megan Bell

Everyone at Owners Only Real Estate are very responsive and go the extra mile to help get the deal closed.

We sold a historic home and it was a complicated transaction. The team at Owners Only Real Estate went above and beyond to help facilitate the closing.

Clint Granville

Selling our home was a painful experience before we found Owners Only Real Estate.

We hired/"fired" three previous real estate companies. Owners Only Real Estate came to our rescue. They actually work for you. GREAT bunch of people!! We had several offers; house sold quickly for more than listing price. No hassles or problems. Thank you Jason and your team of professionals. Well done!!

The Hopper Family

Fred and I would like to thank you for the great job you did selling our house.

We had it listed with another agent for a while and he basically didn’t work very hard. The economy was down when we listed it with you but you went straight to work. You called other Realtors and buyers, passed out flyers to our neighbors and did a lot of internet marketing. Within 30 days we were shopping for our dream home at the beach! We greatly appreciate all the work you did and we love our new home. Thank you so much to you and everyone at Owners Only Real Estate!

Sandy and Fred Sharpe

We have been so blessed to quickly sell with the professional expertise of Owners Only Real Estate.

Jason quickly got a photographer out when the blooms were perfect in the yard and had immediate interest with buyers! Within a week of showings we had multiple offers & was on our way to selling our home! We are so appreciative of everyone’s help & know it takes a village to list and sell a home. This team is on top of it all!

Tracy Smith

Outstanding team of professionals!

, I have been trying to sell my home for years. When my listing expired Owners Only Real Estate contacted me, I listed with them and they sold my home in two weeks. Had 10 showings in two weeks! They have a great organization!

Fonnie Gill

You are totally the best!

I've been handing out your cards like hotcakes this week! We love our house even more now than we did one year ago. It's a home now, and we've stocked up a year of lovely memories so far. Many more in the making! Thank you Owners Only Real Estate!

M and G - Asheville
