When my husband and I decided to look for our first home we wanted an agent who would be both assertive as our representative and patient as our guide. Nick and Renée went above and beyond in helping us find the perfect home for us. Finding a home during a pandemic and while expecting our first child was stressful, but Nick and Renee made it as smooth and as stress free as possible. If you are looking for a realtor that is casual, confident, and personable, reach out to Nick!

We worked with Renee and Nick with The Hinton Realty Group to buy our home in Hendersonville, and we can’t say enough good things about them! We were moving back to the east coast after living out west for a few years, and the whole process of a cross-country move was very daunting. From our first conversation with Renee and Nick, we knew they were the kind of people we wanted to work with! We loved their clear communication and how they made us feel supported the entire way, even from a distance. They make such a great team and bring complementary skills to the table that really set them apart from any other agents we’ve worked with. Renee instantly understood what we wanted in a home, and would send us listings that were perfect matches. Nick was supportive and knew all the logistics, he even gave us a pep talk when we were feeling stressed! We loved that they were local and knew the area really well – they were able to give us valuable insight into the different neighborhoods, and provide local business recommendations. They were amazing communicators throughout the entire process, always taking the time to explain things and answer any questions we had. The level of service we got made us feel like we were their only clients – even though we know they were busy with others! We also loved their emphasis on community. Since we are new to the area, they offered to connect us with their other clients, and they even donate a portion of their proceeds to a local charity.
Honestly, they’re the gold standard for real estate because they take the time and effort to get to know you, build trust, and steer the process towards what home buying should be all about – feeling at home!

Renee made our move from Florida to NC smooth as could be! Renee was there to help us anytime during the day or night and weekends. We were not familiar with the area so she gave us so much information to allow us to pick the perfect house in an area perfect for us. She is a wealth of knowledge. Renee went to homes and sent us videos so we could not only see the entire home, but even the drive to the house so we could seethe area. Definitely recommend contacting Renee!

Writing this review as I am in the process of moving into my new home. Without Tommy, none of this would have been possible in an incredibly hot and difficult to maneuver real estate market. Tommy was completely dedicated to giving me 100% attention every single day to make sure I found exactly what I wanted. We spent about 1 week looking for houses, put our offer in and after only 1 update to the offer we were accepted. Tommy went above and beyond to make sure I got this house and the speed in which it happened is unbelievable. His knowledge of the area, knowledge of the market, speed and efficiency is what got me this house. Tommy will go out of his way to make sure your new home search or sale is successful. I cannot recommend Tommy enough. I’ve worked with a lot of realtors in the past and I always thought it was a painful process. Tommy changed my mind this time around.

We couldn’t be happily with our decision to work with The Hinton Realty Group to find our new home. Nick has intimate knowledge of the Asheville area, was highly responsive, and he and Renee were instrumental in helping us navigate a highly competitive housing market. After an exhaustive home hunt, we found the perfect bungalow in West Asheville that is everything we were looking for. Highly recommend working with their team if you are looking for your own place in the mountains!

We moved here from Montana and had to handle a lot of the process over the phone and texting. I can’t begin to tell you how professional, responsive and friendly Nick is. He and Renee were right on top of everything from beginning to end. Add to it shopping for a house during the Coronavirus and it was a stressful situation but Nick and Renee took care of us like we were their only clients. It felt like we had a personal concierge to handle everything for us. When we got to Asheville to look at houses Nick took two days driving us all over the area to make sure he helped us pick the right house in the right neighborhood. When we moved here he and Renee even got us in touch with some guys to help us unload and move in. We’re both so pleased with Nick and Renee! If you need a realtor in the Asheville area you don’t need to wonder who you should use, it’s Nick Hinton! This guy is the perfect realtor. His staff is the perfect staff. They are the pinnacle of professionalism and personal attention. Thanks for everything! You guys rocked it!!

I am so grateful my husband and I were referred to Nick to sell our property. It was not an easy time or an easy situation. During the middle of the pandemic stay-at-home order, Nick managed to get us under contract for just above our asking price. He also patiently worked with some difficult renters we had, smoothing out the situation with his patience, wisdom, and communication skills. Thanks, Nick!
– Renee O.
I chose Nick from Yelp referrals when looking for a family getaway in the mountains. Save yourself the time and don’t look any further. You will not be pushed, egoed, lectured… rather, he consults, advises, advocates, and listens… oh, and he is patient. I will hire him every time I do anything in western Carolina until he retires or changes occupations.

Tommy was beyond amazing at helping us navigate through the entire process of purchasing land. We felt very comfortable along the way, and we were even states away. Tommy communicated thoroughly and helped us understand each and every step. I would highly recommend Tommy to anyone!

My husband and I were first time home buyers new to Asheville. We didn’t know anyone out here, so we asked our mortgage loan officer for agent recommendations and chose Nick Hinton out of the bunch after seeing some great reviews for him online. Judging from my own experience, those reviews were well deserved! Nick and his assistant Renée were invaluable to our search. They were prompt and patient, responding to our questions and concerns as people new to the process, and it was clear they were experts. He was also quick to show up for viewings, which put us at ease. Nick came through with excellent recommendations for specialists when it came time for inspections, and a contractor who could answer some questions we had about modifying the property we hoped to purchase. The people here are also great to work with. When you talk to them, you feel they really care about making sure you find a house or property that checks the boxes and one that makes you happy. And when it came time to make the bid, we followed Nick’s advice and landed our dream home in this wild and competitive market. We’re glad Nick is committed to not just building but maintaining relationships with his clients because he really is a priceless resource!

Nick Hinton is a 5-STAR realtor. My wife and I feel extremely fortunate to have come across him. Over the last few years, we have dealt with realtors in California, Oregon, Idaho, Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina. Although I’m not going to get into common behavioral patterns of realtors(psychologists we are), I am going to tell you, Nick is not characteristic of this model. NICK IS OUTSTANDING! We were/are working with Nick, while still in CA, to purchase a property in Asheville, NC. Although on our last trip we did not purchase, we came as close as possible, retracting our offer on the last day of DD due to an issue with the property that could not be resolved. Nick found, and showed us numerous properties in a short amount of time. He worked hard, and never stopped smiling or making us laugh. He worked with us, and for us. In summary, Nick is more than just a realtor with his approach. He covered every aspect of home-buying that we needed, and then more. He was more than on-the-ball. Yet, Nick has a beautiful, laid-back approach that makes all the hard work feel easy; real easy. The truth is, Nick made it all easy. It’s very unfortunate that we cannot take Nick to every location (nationwide) that we’ve looked at properties, because if we could, we would. NICK HINTON IS A 5-STAR
REALTOR. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYONE BETTER.

Renee is such a lovely person and was always on time and cheerfully ready to show us properties. She was the boots on the ground during our home buying process and even would watch our kids while we looked through houses. I trust Renee and recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Asheville area. We just signed the closing documents yesterday and are very happy with our first home purchase. Thank you Renee.

My wife and I decided in June 2021 to purchase a vacation rental property in the Asheville, NC area. Based on excellent online reviews, we decided to have Tommy assist us in our search. Tommy far exceeded our expectations. He quickly understood what we were looking for and sent us many high potential properties. He has an outstanding knowledge of the Asheville area, having lived there for decades. But beyond his professional expertise, his personality and approach to serving his clients was perfect for my wife and I. We met Tommy in Asheville to look at a few potential properties and we had such a connection with him. While laser focused on finding a property for us, he is very low key and not high pressure at all. Over the last 8 months of our search Tommy has become more than “our realtor” but a partner and friend. Ultimately we decided that the Boone, NC area would be more conducive to a four season vacation rental that we are looking for. As this is outside of Tommy’s “territory” we made the difficult decision to move to another realtor in the Boone area. Tommy fully supported our decision and wished us well. My wife and I highly recommend Tommy and wish him all the best too.

Working with Nick & Renee was SO wonderful. These two are so patient and kind and really know what they are doing. Once we finally got an offer accepted the process was super stressful, and they were positive and solution focused. I always felt heard and validated. They’re very easy to get along with and I felt very comfortable being myself with them. I highly recommend working with these folx!
