Ray was referred to us by a realtor in another part of the state through a realtor network. We put a lot of trust into the recommendation and Ray delivered. Ray is very knowledgeable about Western North Carolina, house and landscape construction, maintenance and many things that were new to us, coming from the western US. We had to trust Ray completely and found him to be a straight shooter very honest, straightforward and responsive.
Ray was particularly effective at interpreting inspections, advising on negotiations and helping us understand the North Carolina real property purchase process. His knowledge and thoroughness was especially impressive, and he was right in top of everything, both communicating to us and in acknowledging receipt of communications from us. That meant a lot, and as a result, nothing fell through the cracks. There were no surprises at closing.
I would recommend Ray Medlin without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Western North Carolina. ~ Drew Van Fossen, Ennice, NC
The best agent Ive ever used. Ray Medlin was professional and knowledgeable and all around the best agent Ive ever used. He understood exactly what I wanted and found me the perfect place. Thanks Ray ~ Tim Lockamy Boone NC
I was referred to Ray Medlin/Century 21 by a friend who lives in the Boone area. During the sales process Ray was prompt with correspondences and timely information. Considering that the only time I met Ray Medlin was at closing, I still felt comfortable and confident in dealing with him. ~ Bill Clarke, Cullowhee
Ray and his wife Kathleen are the best team!!!
Ray Medlin recently listed and sold our home in a very timely manner. When my siblings decided to list property associated with our family trust. We were eager to list it with Ray because of his professional and knowledgeable experience. He was always just a phone call away when we had questions and concerns, and very quick to respond. ~ The Spears, Watauga County, N.C.
Ray was a pleasure to work with both in the sale of our home as well as purchasing a new home. We would definitely recommend him to our friends. ~ Heather Stewart
Ray gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and deep knowledge about a really wide range of homes that we looked at. We weren't sure what we wanted but he helped us in every area and through a wide range of options until we landed on the one! Particular high points were helping us with a seller who ended up behaving in a really sketchy manner and Ray managed all this to pull us to an on-time closing! ~ Jennifer Pollard, Beech Mountain
Ray is very easy and wonderful to work with. It was apparent that he had our back from the beginning. I would recommend Ray to anyone looking to either buy or sell their house in the High Country. ~ Heather Stewart, Vilas NC
Ray was tremendous to work with. Being over 2 hours away he got us in touch with great folks when we needed assistance. A great lawyer for the close, a great lender in the area and someone to do the inspection. During our process Ray lost his father and even during this difficult time he was still only a phone call or text message away. I'm sure we will use Ray again in the future. ~ Scott Allen, New London, NC.
Ray took time to listen to our needs/desires and was especially good at helping us understand the Boone market and he provided clear and consistent communication throughout the buying process - which was especially helpful as we were out-of-town buyers. ~ Bruce, Holly Springs, NC
I look forward to referring buyers and sellers to Ray in the future. I am a licensed agent in Florida so my expectations are probably higher than most and Ray & Kathleen exceeded them ! ~ Eileen Warner Sugar Grove
I would not hesitate to recommend Ray to anyone. ~ Sandra Canady
Great! ~ Rob
He went above and beyond the call of duty. I felt that I could trust him and depend on his advice. He was very responsive, I never had to call twice and every question was answered honestly. ~ Rob Tuuk, Jefferson
Ray was someone that understood what I wanted and why. He took the time to talk to me and when it came time to make a purchase, he took "ownership" of the process. He made sure that every step was completed. He acted as if he was buying the property himself, so that there are no questions left out. ~ Jody Laffon, Crumpler
Ray is an incredible and highly professional individual, he was always on time and great on communication, I would work with him again at any time and I already recommended him and my friend thanked me for the recommendation ~ Haytham Abi Haydar
Ray Medlin is a very knowledgeable broker. My sister actually found him on the internet when we decided to sell the property. Ray was very patient with the selling of the property and gave sound advice about the pricing and marketing of the property. I highly recommend Ray as a broker. He is also a wonderful person.
This property is in Boone, NC and I live in South Carolina. Ray and I handled everything by phone, text and email. He was very helpful in getting the land surveyed and a "perk" test on the property. My mother passed away just before the land sold, so I had to get the property deeded into my name and then recorded in North Carolina. This was quite a lengthy legal process but he was patient with all the lawyers involved. He also recommended the closing attorney in Boone for us. ~ Cassandra McBride, Surfside Beach
After talking with Ray, he became aware of our unique needs and desires. He worked with us to find houses that might interest us, Even though we were 150 miles away from the area, his persistence and knowledge were beyond helpful in all of our dealings with the sellers and their realtors.
Ray was on top of every detail and made sure we were aware of what would happen next and when it would happen. Excellent commuication.
Kathleen kept us up to date on all closing issues. Excellent skills. Both she and Ray were there to answer any questions we had about the purchase of our new home.
This is our forever home, but if we ever need a realtor again, it will definitely be Ray Medlin. ~ Mike and Judy, Taylorsville, NC
Ray Medlin at Century 21 Mountain Vistas is by far the best agent we have worked with. He stuck with us for a majority of 2018 as we were trying to move down to the area, and was tremendously helpful and very patient during the entire process. After finally closing the deal on our house with Ray as our agent just a couple of months ago, I went right back to Ray to help me find a second property. Not only did I get a great agent, but I feel that I also have a new friend. I would highly recommend getting in touch with Ray Medlin if you are in the market to buy or sell. ~ Corey Lasley, Zionville
Ray was awesome from the first communication I had with him all the way through the purchase of my house. We were moving from out of state and Ray did everything he could to make it as easy for us as possible. I would highly recommend Ray! ~ Corey Lasley, Zionville
Ray reached out after I signed up for the website usage. He was very friendly, not too pushy and immediately looked into the house I had interest in. He would occasionally check in to see how he could be of help. We had found a few houses of interest and he was very quick to get the showing set. During the showing, we asked for their thoughts and I appreciated his honesty as he knows the area better than we do. The offer process went well with Ray too. I would highly recommend him! ~ Meredith Barbour, Banner Elk
