It’s my pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for Amy and Rick LaBarre with Blue Ridge Brokerage. I met them through David Conrad the previous owner. I have lived here in the High Country of Western North Carolina for 25 years. I have watched BRB market, sell, and guide buyers and sellers in the acquisition of business and real estate deals. They always demonstrated responsibility and an entrepreneurial spirit. When I met Amy and Rick I was seeking to value my business and asked their option on marketing it for sale, and how to do that. Amy and Rick explored my ideas and we developed a game plan to list Appblinds! We also looked up specifics information on my industry and other business’s like mine that had been sold recently. Of course, you should know Amy and Rick have the best reputation for integrity, knowledge and ability to sell your business here in the high country. Their professional abilities and client’s recommendations have successful placed them at the top of the list with anyone serious about successfully selling their business.

I had a great experience working with Amy and the whole team at Blueridge Brokerage. I’ve delt with many business brokers in the past while searching for a business to purchase, and they were by far the most responsive and professional. In the end, I was able to acquire a great business at a fair price and the deal was beneficial for both the seller and I. Highly recommend.

Very professional company that became friends. It was an easy process and they sold our business quickly. Very pleased.

The team at Blue Ridge Brokerage worked tirelessly to find the right deal and buyer when we sold a division of our business. It wasn’t easy, but they persevered until it was right for everyone. Their hard work got it done.

Blue Ridge Brokerage is absolutely the best commercial property leasing and sales broker that I have ever had the pleasure of working with during my more than 40 years as a real estate investor and developer. Blue Ridge was instrumental in successfully bringing the occupancy of my Banner Elk, NC shopping Center from under 60% to fully occupancy in a matter of just a few short years. Whether you are looking for a highly competent leasing or business sale broker, do not think twice about engaging Blue Ridge Brokerage to get the job done. There simply is none better – period!”

My builder, Shawn Corey, referred me to Blue Ridge Brokerage when I was seeking land to build a commercial space and not only did they find me the perfect location, and help negotiate a great deal, they then brought a buyer that I couldn’t turn down making the entire transaction seamless and extremely professional throughout. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a realtor that knows the area with incredible real estate acumen and integrity.

Thanks again, I’m sure we will be working together again…hopefully sooner than later!

We just wanted to write a note to thank Blue Ridge Brokerage for the great job he did in selling our long-running business – Pineola Inn. David worked tirelessly and was a joy to work with. He is honest and a hard worker. He marketed our business very well and found buyers out of state that soon fell in love with Pineola Inn, and David took them to the closing. Now we have time to enjoy our lives. If you are contemplating selling your business and/or commercial real estate, we would highly recommend David and Blue Ridge Brokerage.

David Conrad of Blue Ridge Brokerage is patient, knowledgeable, kind and hard working. I first met David in 2008 when he listed and sold my eight store specialty retail chain. Even after all the Ts were crossed, David always checked in to be sure we were doing well. After a long time on the market, with David’s guidance, I finally sold road frontage acres close to a river. Now I can focus on my current business, children and home. Not only is David a good person, he knows Real Estate Sales and is not afraid of taking on the Tough Jobs. From hiking rural property lines to constantly scanning for the right buyer, David is the right agent for the job! He knows about the many pitfalls of commercial real estate sales and is always available to steer his clients in the right direction! Thanks for all the care and work over the last fifteen years! If I decide to sell commercially again, I know I can succeed with David representing me!

Wayne and I appreciate all of your efforts in getting our business sold.  We believe that you found a buyer that saw the potential in our business and has the vision to carry the business to greater heights.  We enjoyed working with you and learned a great deal from you.  You have definitely built a relationship with many business investors and know how to market a business to those clients.  Prior to listing our business with you, we had listed our property for two years with other agencies.  You immediately contacted viable clients and we received a contract within a couple of months.  Thank you for helping to make our retirement a reality!
