"Hal was the only Realtor that responded to our web-based inquiry about Asheville. He also was very courteous, polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. I will also add funny. He worked with us for several days and never failed to meet our expectations. At all times, we felt Hal was looking out for us and our interests first. There could not be a better real estate person in WNC."
- Perry and Jane
"Hal Schuelke represented us in the sale of one home and the purchase of another. Our home had been listed by another agency for several months before we found Hal. We had very few feet gracing our doorstep. Then we found Hal. He came through like a whirlwind telling us that if we were serious about selling, we had to move this, pack that, paint this. His ad copy and take-aways were fantastic, and the fact that Preferred Properties has their agents visit every property they list increased foot traffic 1000%. The home sold quickly and Hal was very thorough in making sure all the details necessary to facilitate the sale were covered. Excellent!"
- Tycer Lewis and Nancy Donnelly
"From the very first contact through to arranging financial resources and legal representation at closing, Hal’s service was terrific! We really enjoyed working with him.

"I have to give my heartfelt thanks to your agent Emily Short for the wonderful job she did in selling our house in Candler. From beginning to end she kept in touch with us and guided us through the entire process with grace and professionalism. She was such a joy to work with. I have known Emily for several years, but not in this capacity and I'm so glad to call her my friend."
