Meet Your Team

All our agents are well educated on the laws. North Carolina Real Estate Agents are required to take a credited real estate course of 70 hours, pass the regulated course test, then sit for the National and State Real Estate Exam. Once completed, then they become a provisional broker in NC. They then have 18 months to take an additional 90 post-licensing course. All our agents have gone through this process and are ready to assist you.

About REMAX - Mountain Living

Todd Allen

BROKER | REAL ESTATE AGENT

I am a native to Henderson County who has always had a strong passion for the growing housing industry. When I was younger I was lucky enough to have my own roofing and construction business which allowed me to understand the process of building and remodeling homes. This allowed me to meet many people who were buying or selling a home in this area. My passion turned from construction and design into real estate and the comfort of what a home can provide.

About REMAX - Mountain Living

Dylan Ambler

REAL ESTATE AGENT

As a highly motivated REALTOR®, I’m fiercely determined to connect, guide, and oversee my clients close the most memorable deal of their lifetime. I cherish every opportunity to help first-time buyers, luxury buyers, and investors, and the ease, proficiency, and satisfaction with which this process is realized is my focus. With attention to detail, I approach every transaction, strive for perfection, and settle for excellence.

Also a Licensed General Contractor in NC, with 22 years in residential construction, I pride myself on my knowledge in all aspects of construction, from new home building to complete home remodels. I understand what it takes to turn ideas into reality. I have learned that it is all about understanding people’s needs, making a plan within their budget, setting proper expectations, and following through. I also have an extensive network of architects, designers, and artisans at my
helm, ready to lean in and provide support.

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and now living in Western North Carolina for nearly the past 10 years, although they aren’t the Rocky Mountains that I’m use to. Their beauty has grown on me, and I now call the Appalachian Mountains my home. I draw on my extensive knowledge of diverse markets to advise and educate my clients, effectively empowering them to make well-informed decisions. I’m determined to put up a calculated marketing strategy and admirable negotiation skills to help home buyers find luxury homes and assist sellers in marketing their properties for top dollar. Further, I strive to guide real estate investors in identifying lucrative investments, finding financial freedom, and building generational wealth through real estate.

Whereas owning or finding a place to call home can be an emotional journey with anxieties and
misperceptions, dealing with Dylan makes the difference.

NC/SC REAL ESTATE AGENT

OFFICE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

After rounding out a full chapter of 20 years in Veterinary Medicine management, I transitioned to the Real Estate industry.  This has allowed me to use my various experiences in a beautiful way.  My background has helped me bring attention to detail and stellar customer service to my real estate transactions and clients.  I grew up in Western North Carolina and moved to Upstate SC in 2007.  Being licensed in NC and SC gives me that extra edge to help you buy or sell in a number of locations!  Relocating can be scary, but not when you are working with a professional that walks you step by step and educates you along the way. No question or price is too big or small!  Start your home buying/selling process with me.  My trusted resources are endless. 

Frequently Asked Questions

u

How do I find the right Real Estate Agent?

We understand you want to work with a Real Estate agent who’s the best fit for you. Read our guide on How to Choose the Right Agent.

u

Why do I need a Real Estate Agent when buying a home?

For our explination, check out our Buyer’s page for What is a Buyer’s Agent and Why do I Need One?

u

What is Pre-qualifying vs. Pre-approval?

In pre-qualification, you are given an estimate of what you may be able to borrow, based on limited financial information provided in a form. This is an easy way to determine how much you could possibly spend on your real estate home purchase. To be pre-approved means a financial institution has agreed to work with you and has already taken a deep view into your financial situation. Pre-approval gives potential home buyers more solid answers on how much they can afford during the home buying process.

u

How Much Will I Have to Pay my Real Estate Agent?

Typically, you aren’t paying a real estate agent to help you find your dream home. The seller pays their real estate agent a percentage of the home sale price, and that agent pays the buyer’s real estate agent for bringing in the buyer.  

u

Where do I begin when I want to buy a home?

It is always a good idea to start with a lender when wanting to buy a home. They can guide you through what home loans may be best for you, look at your credit history to see if you are ready to purchase a home, and pre-qualify or pre-approve you, to give you your financial criteria in your home/property search.

u

Where do I look to find homes?

Once you have been pre-qualified, and you know what price range you are looking in, it is now time to find a Buyer’s Agent. Your agent can set you up to receive up-to-date and accurate listings, in all your desired criteria. Some of the more popular house inventory websites do not provide you with accurate information and are not up to date with what is under contract or off the market.

u

How Long Does it Take to Buy a Home?

From start to finish, buying a home takes about 10 to 12 weeks. Once a home is selected and the offer is accepted, the average time to complete the escrow period on a home is 30 to 45 days (under normal market conditions). Though, well-prepared home buyers who pay cash have been known to purchase properties faster than that.

Market conditions are a major factor in how fast homes are sold. In hot markets with a lot of sales activity, buying a home may take a little longer than normal. That’s because several parties involved in the transaction get behind when business suddenly picks up. If each party involved in a deal takes a day or two longer to get their work done, the entire process gets extended.
