I am writing to review specifically for Lenoir Medlock, who was going to be our listing agent for a house we own in North Asheville. Our family ultimately decided not to put our house on the market, and such I can't give a full proper review to describe the whole experience. However, I will provide my account for the two months we worked with Lenoir. In a nutshell she was fantastic and provided one of the best experiences I've had working with a property agent of any kind. From the very beginning she was extremely attentive to our desires and talking through what was realistic in what we wanted to accomplish in selling the house and worked with us every step of way to conduct a thorough inspection of our own and helping triage all of the necessary things we needed to fix as a result. She was also fantastic in consulting with us on what we needed to improve aesthetically to make the house show well, and after we finally completed that work, we definitely agree that she was spot on with her recommendations. Ultimately though, she just has a great disposition and was fun to work with, and had no problems at all coordinating with us irrespective of whether we were in town or if we remote and available by email only. If we do decide to list this home in the future, she is the very first person I am reaching back out to.
As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and came in feeling very overwhelmed about the process. LeNoir was incredibly patient and knowledgable and I felt completely supported and cared for throughout the experience. She is impeccably professional, kind, and excellent at her job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a stress-free and enjoyable home buying experience!
Excellent. She really understands the Asheville market, and guided me throughout the entire process- from getting the house ready for market, getting potential buyers in, negotiating and easy due diligence and closing. Excellence every step of the way.
LeNoir had rave reviews online and an impressive track record. I settled on her immediately and she did not disappoint. LeNoir is an outstanding real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, friendly, professional and fun to work with. I had complete trust in her and could not be happier with the outcome. I would give her the strongest possible recommendation to anyone needing a realtor in the Asheville area.
She was patient, knowledgeable and organized. I appreciate how she was able to sell the house for a good price.
LeNoir Medlock is quite simply the best real estate agent in Asheville. I cannot recommend her more highly and i would not even consider using anyone else in the future.
There is not enough space here to say all the positive things we have to say about our experience with Lenoir! She always went to bat for us as a buyers agent in all aspects of the purchasing process right to the last minutes of closing! Our family being new to the area seriously needed an agent who knew Asheville. Her knowledge of the Asheville area is exquisite! Also the fact that we were not yet living in the area, we had to lean on her many times to ensure issues where being addressed with our new home. She religiously kept us up to date and worked hard to keep the process moving forward.
LeNoir Medlock was very understanding of our wants, needs and concerns and went above and beyond to help us find what we wanted. As first time home buyers, the whole experience was new and somewhat overwhelming at times. LeNoir helped us every step of the way, always answering any questions we had. We looked at dozens of homes before finding the one we knew was “it”. LeNoir knows the area like the back of her hand! She’s one of the few people in Asheville that is actually a native to the area. She knows the city, surrounding cities, neighborhoods , and school districts in that area. We are so happy we chose LeNoir Medlock as our agent and will absolutely contact her when we are ready to sell/buy in the future.
We met LeNoir when she was an agent representing a local couple (in State College, PA) who were selling some property near Marshall. We met her at this property to look at it in person, we were very impressed by her professionalism, her warmth, and he desire to understand what we were looking for in buying some land in Madison County. When the couple decided to sell to a neighboring property owner, we resumed our search and decided to work with LeNoir as our own agent, based on our meeting and subsequent conversations with her. We have been looking for some open land near Asheville (ranging from Hendersonville, to Waynesville, to Burnsville, to Weaverville, and finally deciding on the Marshall/Mars Hill area) since 2013. During this time we worked with three different real estate agents who worked for various firms (none for Preferred Properties). Until we started working with LeNoir in the fall of 2017 we hadn't understood how poorly those other agents did their jobs! By comparison, LeNoir showed us how a committed, professionally competent realtor is supposed to act. She took the time to learn important details about what we were looking for. When I emailed her with questions about a particular piece of land, she did research about it (including comps for nearby land sales), visited it herself, and shared her impressions and evaluations. When we met with her at several parcels during our search, she asked about what we liked and didn't like about each (none of which we wanted to buy, until the Blowhole Rd. property). When it came time for us to make an offer, LeNoir learned that another offer was going to be submitted at the same time, so she made suggestions about the price of our offer and other details to increase the likelihood that ours would be accepted over the other one. Finally, when the time came to complete all the documents associated with the offer, due diligence, requests for extensions, and closing, LeNoir handled all of these details superbly.
I have known LeNoir for probably 40 years or more. She is charming, but professional and I feel she works hard to sell her listings. She made herself available and I always thought she had my property and my best interest in mind. She is an Asheville native and knows this town and a lot of people in it. I feel LeNoir's relationship with other agents is good and helped things go smoothly. I will be using LeNoir again!
LeNoir is awesome at what she does, very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a real estate agent. After this experience I would not consider another firm or agent in my selection.
LeNoir Medlock was always very professional yet warm and friendly. She was accessible whenever I contacted her. She was very knowledgeable about the procedures required in buying a condo and the areas of the city/county. She made moving from another state and relocating to an unfamiliar city much easier than I imagined it would be. I will always be grateful to her for her assistance in finding my new home. It is a good fit for me, and she recognized that before I did! I would recommend LeNoir to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.
We couldn't have made a better choice or been happier with LeNoir. LeNoir was very proactive which this property needed.
We have used LeNoir now to buy and sell two houses and we would pick no other realtor in the Asheville area. She is so experienced. No matter what we ran into when selling and buying (and believe me, it’s not a walk in the park) she knows how to handle it. She is tireless and committed to helping her clients find the right house for them. I lost count of how many houses we saw and she was always willing to show them to us without any resistance, which we had felt before from past realtors we’ve used. She is well-respected and well-connected in the Asheville market. Other realtors recognize her professionalism and on-the-level approach and, in such a tight housing market, this positive, collaborative realtor-to-realtor relationship is so important to buying and selling. She also takes her cues from her clients and doesn’t push or bully you into anything. She will offer an opinion if she feels strongly about something but nothing more. She stands by her word and always puts her clients’ interests above hers. Truly, the best realtor you could ask for—oh, plus she’s fun to be around.

LeNoir helped my husband and me sell a house and buy a house within a pretty tight period of time. We live in a very competitive market and things move very quickly here. Having LeNoir's expertise to help us navigate multiple offers, pricing negotiations, inspection reports, and all the associated paperwork was priceless. She knows this business and this region like the back of her hand and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. I would recommend LeNoir to anyone without hesitation.
We had a unique property and selling situation and LeNoir went above and beyond what any "normal" realtor would do to research, market, negotiate and ultimately make the sale. She is the consummate professional and also provided us with the support and information we sought throughout the process. She also helped us find our new home and did a fabulous job in negotiations and getting us to closing. We would recommend her anytime to anyone!
LeNoir Medlock is among the finest real estate professionals I have ever met. She was faced with the daunting task of selling my beautiful home that was in complete disarray because I suffered a life-altering fall as I was moving back to Asheville, NC, from Washington, DC. LeNoir restored my home to the shining gem that it is and made me want to purchase my own home from myself. I was an international journalist who is now a tetraplegic. LeNoir understood the implications and not only sold the house within a day but also attracted a price that exceeded the price on the listing. Kudos to LeNoir Medlock.
As an Asheville native, LeNoir has a unique and thorough understanding of the market and the neighborhoods. She was responsive, but not pushy and a pleasure to work with.
LeNoir is incredibly efficient and reads people very well. She sold a very high end home for us. Everyone knows and likes LeNoir. She is very detail oriented and will get the job done. I would use LeNoir as a buying or selling agent.

LeNoir is simply amazing. Her knowledge of Asheville and the surrounding area is vast. She has incredible patience, will show you house after house and discuss each thoroughly. She makes it fun and informative, always staying focused on your best interest! LeNoir is honest, wise and a great negotiator. She is remarkable at what she does and I highly recommend her.
LeNoir is hands down the best agent in Asheville. She grew up in the area which gives her the benefit of understanding every neighborhood and house. LeNoir knows the market incredibly well, she takes time to understand her clients, and she tactfully fights for her clients when the time comes to negotiate. Though our demands for our home were high, LeNoir rose to the occasion and made our search fun and productive. I can't imagine using a different agent. To put it bluntly, when the time comes to sell our current home and buy our next home, I'm calling LeNoir again.
LeNoir has been very responsive and available to us throughout the home selection and buying. She took time to understand our wishes and expectations. Once we chose the house, she did an excellent due diligence, pointing to features which had escaped our attention, and allowed us to make an informed decision without pressure. She really shone during the due diligence and price negotiation, obtaining concessions from the sellers, and guiding us toward a positive conclusion. We wholeheartedly recommend LeNoir for any real estate need!
