What do Clients Say?

Our original realtor basically told us we would never get our money back on the house as we had put in a new fence and made some other cosmetic improvements. Having closed on the house in November of 2016 we really only had a little over a year in the house and expected to barely breakeven. Don had a totally different opinion and he was right! Not only did we get what we put into the house, we closed for OVER our asking pricing with multiple offers. It takes connections, and marketing to get your property out there and Don does all of these to the extreme: video tours, marketing flyers, ads, etc. Your house is out there and offers fly in. All I can say is you will not find a more dedicated, trustworthy, hard working, and all around nice guy who will go over and way beyond to help you find your new home and or sell your property. He is simply the best.


Working with Don has been an absolute dream! My husband and I have been looking to move just outside the Asheville area for a little over a year now, but with our busy lives, we assumed this process would be a long, drawn-out nightmare for which we really did not have the energy or time. Nothing could be further from the truth. Don brought his expertise to both the selling and buying aspects of this process, making things as simple as cleaning our house, viewing new homes, and signing some paperwork. His knowledge of the Asheville market (and surrounding areas) allowed us to price our house perfectly, leading to multiple offers within hours of putting it on the market. His vast experience as a buyer's agent made him invaluable when we were looking at new homes. He was able to give us honest feedback on the pros and cons of each house we saw, noticing issues and opportunities that we never would have seen on our own. We have been able to put our complete trust in his instincts, which is so important when you are dealing with something as life changing as selling and buying a home. His level of personal investment has been incredible. He's available any time to deal with our questions and concerns, he lets us know of every development immediately, and even came out to help us plant flowers in our yard to increase its curb appeal. As someone who was very skeptical about this process at the beginning, I could not be more thrilled with the level of service and the results that Don has produced. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Asheville area, you should definitely contact Don Rongstad.


We are moving from the Florida Keys to Asheville NC. My partner and I researched real estate agents and saw that he had lots of 5 star reviews. I was impressed with what people were saying about Don. I contacted him via email and he immediately responded. We then spoke on the phone shortly after our initial contact. From that first time that I spoke to him I felt a connection to him. We then drove to Asheville and met him in person. I was not wrong about him. We loved him. He was so personable, kind, a great listener and an all around good man. He helped us purchase our home in Asheville and he is not only a realtor to us he has and will become part of our extended family. He is one special person who will be responsive and help you get through all aspects of the buying process. We have gained a friend. I highly recommend Don for your next purchase or sale of real estate.


Our experience with Don was amazing! After a bad experience with another Realtor when I first started selling my home Don was a breath of fresh air. He is knowledgeable and his professionalism is impressive. He guided us with such grace and kindness making sure we were comfortable and understood the process. He was always available if we had any questions. He is not only a great Realtor, he is a man of integrity which is very rare these days. I totally recommend him should you need a Realtor. He won’t disappoint!


We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had Don as our Realtor. We are from Florida and for three years we had been looking for a home in Asheville; making offers that never went anywhere. Don understood our taste and needs right away. We had made a list of properties to tour, but Don redirected us to houses that were going to suit us better, and volia! Don is very knowledgeable about the areas and value of the properties. Once we found the house, he very patiently guided us through the process of the offer, and was an expert negotiator to ensure we got the appropriate monies once the inspections were conducted. We have purchased and refinanced over six properties in our lifetimes, and have to say that Don went above and beyond what we were expecting. Through the purchase, mortgage, and closing processes he always kept us informed of the progress of each step. We highly recommend him!
