Holly Martin


I am an Asheville native and passionate about my hometown. For 17 years I found immense joy teaching, coaching and mentoring high school students. I spent summers leading youth trips to Costa Rica and teaching sailing on the coasts of NC, Maine and Baja. I have two boys who enjoy biking at Biltmore Estate and my interests include trail running, sailing, golf, hiking, travel, and field hockey. I played field hockey for four years at Davidson College. My husband, Mark, is a local real estate attorney and a great resource for my clients. As you can imagine real estate is a constant topic of conversation in my home, and I strive to stay current on the latest legal, marketing and sales trends. I would love to help you with your real estate needs.

Without question, Holly is by far the most effective and BEST realtor we have ever worked with! This is our fourth home purchase and have some idea of the variety of skillset and knowledge of realtors and only wish we had the HIGH caliber of service from past realtors as we did from Holly. Holly met us at each showing, impressively organized, prepared and knowledgeable about each property and gave us all the materials/information we would need to help us make the best decision. If there were more questions we had, she immediately turned around and got the answers to us –something we did not have with past realtors, actually having to chase them down to answer the not so easy questions to answer; that is, questions that needed some investigating. We immediately felt at ease with Holly, she never pressured us and her sincerity and truthfulness were a welcome relief! Finally, she was our true champion in the negotiating process. We cannot say enough great things about Holly and anyone would be lucky to work with her.
-Francine & Rodney, Asheville

From our first conversation with Holly she was very thorough and stayed in touch with us often. This was important because we had many questions since our purchase involved moving to Asheville from out of state. She was priceless as our eyes and ears from a distance, and had lined up over a dozen properties to view when we visited town. After we found our home, she was an immense resource in helping us navigate the waters of everything from documents, financing, inspections…basically everything we needed. We never had to worry about how things were progressing with our purchase. Most importantly she walked us through this process with patience, professionalism and an empathic ear when we needed a sounding board. I can’t imagine going through this process without her.

Holly was wonderful! From our first meeting to our closing she was easy to communicate with, quick to answer our questions, and helped make our entire home- selling process as smooth and stress-free as possible!

Whether you are a first time homebuyer or experienced, it means everything to have a good realtor. Professional realtors can get answers fast and make all the negotiating and paperwork less stressful. My wife and I are SO thankful we had Holly Martin as our realtor! Holly knows all about the areas in and around Asheville, she was always available to us whenever we had questions, and was lightning fast with documents between us and the seller. I would personally recommend Holly to my family and friends or anyone that is looking to buy a home in western NC. I told Holly she was the one that helped us buy our wonderful new home, and when the day comes, she will be the one that sells it for us. As in most areas, there is no shortage in realtors, take my recommendation, Holly is the realtor you want!
– Mark & LeAnn, Asheville

Holly Martin was wonderful to work with. Our budget was low and she treated us like we were buying a million dollar home. I will always suggest her to anyone who is buying or selling a home and I would never use anyone else. Once you find the best why look elsewhere!
– Jennifer Broccoli, Asheville

Based on my experience in this fairly difficult transaction I would definitely recommend Holly to anyone interested in selling property. Her concern for the property and parties and her attention to details and willingness to be involved in every aspect of the transaction indicates to me she is someone who is not only capable and trustworthy but also willing to devote sufficient time and energy to see a plan constructed and completed in a successful manner. While being both professional and patient she exhibited dogged determination to see the task completed.
