I have worked with many realtors over 25 moves. Miriam rates right up there with the best experience we have had ! She is thorough , responsible, fair and for sure understands the rights of the buyer and the seller. She is extremely honest and makes sure you understand what you can expect in the transaction. Her over 20 years of experience with virtually no complaints should tell you this lady is the one you want to represent you in any real estate transaction in the Asheville area. Thank you Miriam.

Miriam McKinney did a stellar job marketing our lot and negotiating the selling process. Miriam handled the whole process with great thoroughness and care, taking our calls at all hours and leaving no stone unturned to make sure that both us as sellers and the new owners felt 100% clean and clear and delighted. We have dealt with Miriam as our buying agent as well as our selling agent in 8 successful transactions to date and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Opal T

It is a privilege to speak a good word for Ms. Miriam McKinney. She was my realtor in recent months as I dealt with a very challenging situation. Ms. McKinney exhibited both practical knowledge and wisdom regarding my situation and she handled the entire process with expertise and candor. Not only was her knowledge and wisdom a blessing but her genuine concern for my best interests. Investor Jackson Blackstream is fortunate to have this young woman representing their company. She is an outstanding asset. I Highly recommend Ms. McKinney without any reservation.

Miriam is THE best! We were so impressed with her attention to detail and knowledge around the industry - she’s so passionate and a real expert on the Asheville market. She was our agent to both buy and sell and really listened to our needs/wants as a growing family. She goes to bat for her clients and uses her expertise to strategize throughout the process. She gave us a lot of great advice and helped us successfully navigate a few tricky situations, including selling our home in the middle of a pandemic! We cannot recommend her enough!!

My wife and I were looking for land in the Asheville area to build our future retirement home. We knew very little about the details of the area, what we really wanted in terms of a homesite, and what to expect. Miriam McKinney, our agent, took us to see a variety of land options to give us a feel of what is available and how one might build in the Asheville area. Since we live out-of-town we had to make multiple visits to see everything , and Miriam was incredibly patient with us, and was sympathetic when we looked at various properties and communicated they weren't the right ones. Once we ourselves started to get a feel for what we wanted, she pivoted very quickly to show us properties that fit-the-bill and very quickly we found the PERFECT spot. In negotiations with the developer, she was very much an advocate for us, and it was obvious her primary objectives wasn't to get a quick commission check out of purchase, but rather that we were completely happy in what we were buying. She knows the area inside-out, and has helped us navigate other issues related to buying land that we would never have thought of! She is the best!

"You are not going to find a better agent than Miriam McKinney. She has sold two homes for me in the past years and has also helped me purchase my current home. She goes above and beyond the expectations of other agents I have worked with in the past. She is very knowledgeable about what the current market is doing and keeps you abreast with up to date information that is pertinent to what you need. She is very easy to work with,and takes the time to listen to all of your questions and concerns. You could not ask for an agent to do more than what she does. Keep up the good work Miriam. You are a ROCK STAR!!!!"

"I've worked with Miriam McKinney previously and she is the only agent I will work with. Her knowledge, attention to detail, organization, and warm professionalism are superb. I trust her and value her opinions. She is completely genuine with her clients and truly advocates for them. Most importantly, she is always ahead of potential problems. Based on her many years of experience she will give you feedback to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. Trust her opinion! She honestly has the client's best interests at heart and does everything she can to make sure you have a great experience. My purchase had extra elements that made things potentially difficult. She was proactive about getting it handled in advance, and was able to adjust and problem solve quickly. I trust her because she always gets thin gs handled as they should be. Miriam is spectacular and I recommend her to everyone! "
