In 2015 and 2016, Benjamin Ray assisted us in both selling a property and buying a home in the Watauga County and Ashe County areas of western North Carolina. He was knowledgeable and helpful in each process. The latter endeavor in 2016 was challenging in that our ability to purchase our “retirement” home was dependent on the sale of an estate property in our home county. Benjamin was patient and encouraging, and a strong advocate for our cause and needs. I may have given up long before the end if it were not for Benjamin’s efforts. Instead, thanks to Ben, we have the perfect mountain home!
