My wife and I had returned from six years in the Caribbean cruising on our boat, Prior to going cruising we had lived in Florida for 35 years but had now decided not to settle back there. We planned a relocation to Western North Carolina where we were recommended to Alpine Realty in Bakersville, Anne, the Broker and her assistant Julie were extremely welcoming and patient while introducing us to a new state and a completely unknown area; their knowledge, help and particularly their patience enabled us to focus on explaining our wishes and needs and letting them find us our perfect mountain home. They listened and quickly selected a few qualifying homes for our consideration in some of the most beautiful parts of the mountains. All negotiations were carried out efficiently and before we knew it we had a contract. Our time frame from signing the contract to closure was just one month. If you are looking at purchasing a property within a radius of Bakersville I know you will find Anne and her team invaluable and welcoming...this friendly Real Estate agency will provide a refreshing and rewarding experience. Thank you Anne and Julie.

I have known Sue Stewart for over 20 years, and have enjoyed her friendship.

My house was listed with Sue and Alpine Real Estate Company for 3 years periodically I have taken if off the market, due to time of year. I always trusted her judgment, and the duties she performed and requests made by me.

I would recommend Sue any time as a REALTOR for anyone. She was always positive and enthusiastic about her job-went beyond what was expected.

My husband and I visited Spruce Pine, NC in September of 2013 in hopes of purchasing a home in the area. Upon our arrival, we were introduced to Sue Stewart, A realtor at Alpine Real Estate Company in Bakersville.  Sue realized we were only in town for the weekend. She worked quickly to show us homes and condos currently on the market. Sue spent an entire day out of her busy schedule to show us numerous properties. By the end of the day, we found a beautiful condo that suited all our needs. We signed a contract that  evening. 

Upon returning to Virginia, she kept us abreast weekly if not daily of all necessary paperwork needed for closing. We closed the end of October and were able to complete all paperwork through emails or certified mail. When closing was finalized, Sue graciously offered to oversee our property until our arrival of March 6, 2014. My husband and I have nothing but praises for Sue Stewart, as she always demonstrated Professionalism throughout this entire process. We also commented on her level of enthusiasm and how energetic she was throughout this process.

Living in Spruce Pine for nearly three years, we have seen Sue on several occasions and consider her to be a dear friend.

Just last week, I referred her name to a neighbor who was putting his condo up for sale. He met with Sue and was very impressed with her Professionalism. The gentleman quickly gave her the listing. He later called to thank me for the referral and told me Sue was a "Real Cracker Jack".

Larry and I would highly recommend Sue Stewart to other prospective buyers who are in need of a great Realtor.
