What Do Our Clients Say?


I had our house in the market with other realtors for two years and was unable to sale. David approached us to get our listing and in less than six months our house was sold. He was very professional and helped us during inspections, appraisal and with other problems during the closing since we  were out of town. I already recommended him to our friends and he sold their house in less than a week, they were also very content with his services. I highly recommend David for all your real estate needs


We live out of state and found David on the internet, due to his excellent website.  After looking at houses online for a while, we went up to Boone and met him in person, to go look at some properties.  We were impressed right away by his professionalism, local knowledge, personality and total lack of pushiness. This first visit was more to get a feel for the area than to buy something, which David understood.  We spent about a day and a half during that visit, during which we learned a lot, which helped us focus our search on certain areas. During our second visit a few months later, we found the house we ended up buying.  It was not on our schedule to view, but it showed up as a price change on the website while we were there. David adjusted immediately and showed us that house. After that, the whole buying process took place while we were out of state.  David’s assistance during the negotiations and inevitable glitches during the home buying process was invaluable. What could have been a very stressful time ended up much less so because of his professionalism and competence. We could not have found a better realtor!  In addition, David has a great personality and is a very interesting individual. I cannot say enough good things about him. Highly recommended!


David was amazing with his follow-up though our entire process of buying a home in Blowing Rock. His knowledge of the area and market trends helped  us to make an informed decision. We recommend David to everyone we know looking to buy and/sell.


David was very helpful and put in extra work since we were purchasing property over 2 hours away from or home. David knew the right person to call for all our needs after the purchase also.


Tara was very helpful with our purchase on Beech Mountain. We found her from one of her listings and bought that house, which she made the easiest real estate transaction we've had. 


Throughout the process of looking at about ten houses, Tara was efficient, informative, and extremely responsive to  our many, many questions. She is well organized and offered unbiased advice about the community and things to look for (and look out for). 


We highly recommend Tara and will gladly work with her again.


Tara is the only agent in the Boone/Blowing Rock area who has taken the time to help me in my land search. The amount I’m spending is minimal, but by the service she is providing you would think I was but a million dollar property. Despite my small budget she looks daily, drives to properties,  takes photos and videos (I’m in Florida) . She has been a breath of fresh air, incredibly knowledgeable, accommodating and goes above and beyond. I enjoy working with her and I look forward to finding the perfect property and I know if you are using Tara you won’t regret it! 


Tara was a great asset in selecting our new vacation home. She is very knowledge of the area and the market. Her skills in organization were very helpful in keeping all the necessary documents and paperwork at my disposal. I certainly enjoyed working with Tara.


David went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor! He made the whole experience so much easier especially since we were not living in the same town where our house was listed. Thank you David!!


Helpful, quick, accurate and very professional. I could not have asked for a better long range partner. we got the job done. The seller was in one end of the state, she was in the other end, and the buyer was in south africa.


I spoke with David initially to inquire about a home that he had listed. That home didn't work out but over the next month, he was quick to send any new properties that came on the market that we may be interested in. We planned a weekend to view homes and he spent a lot of time planning the days to ensure that we had appointments to see all the properties that we were interested in as well as providing detailed information about each home. He did a great job.


Well recommended, honest and helpful. Does his job correctly! Answers all times of the day. Very patient with customers, I forgot a coffee mug and he went back to the property and found it for me. I didn’t ask him to either. Definitely a recommendation in my book.


We actually made our initial contact with Tara through website interaction as we were interested in three particular areas of Watauga County, NC for a second home. Tara listened carefully to our needs and took us to see ANY property that we had highlighted. We eventually found THE one, and she was  so incredibly helpful in all aspects of contract negotiation, securing inspections,surveys, and other site visits (as we are hours away), and making the close in an expedient, off-site, and seamless transaction.


We would highly recommend Tara and her team and will certainly rely on her expertise if we should buy or sell in the area again.


Tara was easily accessible, knowledgeable, and able to easily understand what we were looking for. We trusted her to act on our behalf when we weren’t able to be in town and had confidence in her advise. We really enjoyed spending time with her to! We would use her again with no hesitation!


Very knowledgeable of the local market.  The process from listing to closing was well managed, always with open lines of communication.  We had an offer in a matter of days!


Tara was our realtor, guiding us through the process of buying our first vacation property (Beech Mountain).  She has great knowledge of the area, a process expert and is very pleasant to work with. Being a busy person, I especially appreciated her efficiency.  Quick responses, fast action and she made a lot of great suggestions to help guide us along. Closed on a target property, below our target price, within 30 days of meeting Tara.  Doesn't get much better. 


Tara was amazing! She listened to what I said I wanted in a house and found me exactly what matched my wants! She was always there when I had questions. I'd definitely work with her again next time.


I would highly recommend Tara.  She was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely call on her again. Our home was listed in August and sold in June the following year.


Tara was very knowledgeable of the area we were looking at and was always available for questions, and showing us several houses. We had to come from out of town so she helped us to use our time wisely and was great to help us negotiate the price of the house we bought so that we had some money  left to make changes to our taste. 


Tara was a real trooper, always available to answer our questions and deal with our concerns. She was very diligent throughout the selling process. We gave her our target price and she respected that and hung in there until the end. Debbie and I were extremely satisfied with Tara’s performance and  wouldn’t hesitate to approach her again for the same services. We highly recommend her!


David helped us find the perfect vacation home in Banner Elk. He goes the extra mile to make EVERYTHING is taken care of - utilities- internet- all of it. David also unique knowledge of the local area and is able to pass that along to his clients. Couldn’t be happier with the service provided by  David Davis.


In September of 2017 on a whim, while staying in Blowing Rock NC one weekend, my wife and I wanted to view a property. It was cold and rainy and not ideal for viewing a home but we called the agency listed and Tara came out to meet with us. Unfortunately, that property did not work out however; she  suggested a lot just down from the house we looked at and we ended up purchasing it in May of 2018. We originally took some time to evaluate and ended up purchasing the 1.53 Acres she had shown us. Tara was very knowledgeable of the area and very prompt in assisting with the negotiations and closing. She stayed on top of the entire process from initial contact till the closing. We would recommend her to anyone searching for a qualified and competent Realtor.


We have been in investment real estate for many years and Tara has been by far the most patient, hardworking and professional agent we have ever worked with. When it came time to buy a vacation place just for our family, we didn't know where to start. Tara brought years of industry and local  knowledge which was invaluable since we did not know the area well. After many months of on-and-off again searching in different mountain areas, we found the perfect place for our family! Tara went above any beyond to not only make sure the transaction went smoothly but to also provide other resources we needed (like a contractor and even summer camp for our daughter). We would highly recommend her to anyone.


Tara is an outstanding Realtor!  We enjoyed working with her as she is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and understood exactly what we were looking for.  I look forward to working with her again!


Tara helped my husband and I sell our rental home. She was incredible! I had questions all if the time and she answered them quickly and never got sick of me. She got our home under contract for what we wanted in under a week. She even went over to the home when needed since we live out of town!


David was always very quick in getting back to me on each inquiry to him.  The process of finding our new home with David was almost five months and he was always very responsive throughout the whole period. Several occasions he went beyond my expectations as a realtor.  He contacted builders to inquire on adding a garage, contacted a POA president on my behalf, showed a home for us that was well outside his MLS area, etc.  He even went out to the property we were making an offer on to measure out the lot's boundary. (We're 3 hrs away)

He was respectful, approachable, friendly, has excellent local knowledge and more than met our expectations 


David was our buyer's agent and I honestly cannot say enough good things about him and how much he did to help us. One of the things that impressed me from the start was how quickly we were always able to get in touch with him.  Whenever we called David, he either answered the phone or he would call us back within the hour. He went so far above and beyond for us in all aspects. We live in Raleigh and were looking in Ashe County, so to save us pointless trips, he offered to go by some of the houses we had discovered online, so he could take additional pictures, get the lay of the land, etc..  He did lots of research for us regarding lost septic permits, and so many other things. Honestly, if you get to have David Davis as your realtor, you are in great hands and you will never have to second guess your choice. 


Tara is a dream! She is a great listener and really gets to know your likes and dislikes. She is very respectful of preferences and is never pushy. She did an amazing job with our negotiations and guided us through every step flawlessly. She was always available for quick questions and never made  me feel like they were silly. 


If you need a realtor look no further! She is the best! 


We chose David as our selling agent and couldn't have been happier. He took care of everything throughout the entire process and went above and beyond to sell our property.  He was very good about staying in touch and communicating. We highly recommend David as your real estate agent!


We were fully blessed to have Tara and her team sell our home in Boone, NC.  We had dealt with a few other realtors before we finally found Tara. She impressed us from the very beginning and her knowledge was amazing to deal with, watch and work with.  She never left a stone unturned and made sure we were taken care of every step along the way. I've sold many homes I've owned in the past, but she was absolutely the best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  I would recommend Tara to anyone. Tara, thank you so much for everything you did for us.


Great experience with Tara - very professional, knowledgeable,  and super responsive!! She also helped us by offering good recommendations for the closing attorney and the home inspector.  Would buy again with her!!!


Tara is great.  She is friendly and answered all of our questions.  She is through and knowledgable. She is also extremely prompt at answering any questions or concerns.


Tara provided great suggestions for selling and took care of the entire selling process for us. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to sell our property.


Tara was extremely helpful throughout our home buying process.  We would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the high country!


I met Tara thru the internet as I had requested some listings.  She hung with me even tho I was not in the area and when it came time to buy she worked tirelessly with me.  There was not a thing I asked of her that she didnt provide. I would highly recommend her in the future.


Tara worked very closely with us since we were 5 1/2 hours away.  Worked professionally with the sellers broker, sellers and us. Very satisfied with her follow through after closing.



Tara was very prompt and responsive at all times throughout the process.   Always available to answer questions. Efficient, with practical solutions to all problems encountered.


My husband and I decided that instead of renting a place in the summer for 2-3 months we would look in to buying . We looked at several on line and selected the ones we wanted to see and let the agent of one the properties know.  Tara responded immediately. She asked him what were all the details (price,bedroom,baths,style etc.)we wanted in our home. She helped find additional homes to look at and then we narrowed it down to 3. After viewing them, we selected one. She was very helpful in negotiating with the owners and getting us the price we wanted. She's very professional, knows the area,and we would use her again and recommend her to anyone.



Tara Davis was an great agent to work with and have represent you in your new home search. She had excellent knowledge of the process and surrounding area's that we were interested in. She gave prompt and courteous attention to any questions we might have had. All in all it was a pleasure working  hand in hand with Tara to meet our goalsand expectations. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone looking for a real estate agent to help them with all there needs and planning for there new home search.


We feel we had the absolute best Real Estate Agency in the industry. We can not say enough about Tara's professionalism.  She had an immediate response to our questions and needs. Would highly recommend her services.


Tara Davis is outstanding and very professional.  She quickly sensed what we were looking for, and did a lot of research about various properties and why they would or would not meet our needs.  She spent a lot of time with us, and also responded quickly to our questions. She also made various appointments for us, such as inspections, a repair, and even sent a list of contacts for local services, repair people, etc.  She negotiated well on our behalf. Aside from her suburb realtor skills, Tara is a genuinely nice person who is easy to get along with.



Tara was great in helping us find a house. She was very knowledgeable and honest with us. We moved from out of town and felt very comfortable with her helping us find our dream home. We couldn't be happiest. Excellent communication too!


Tara is very responsive, prompt, and professional. She is extraordinarily good at her job and made the process of buying a home simple. I would definitely refer her to others in this area.


Living out of town, I needed a Broker who would keep me posted on any new listings in the Blowing Rock, Boone and surrounding areas.  Tara was quick and very responsive. She was quick to gather information about each listing that we requested. She was very accommodating to our schedule.  Tara found us the perfect, storybook home within hours of the listing and in Blowing Rock, time is of the essence. I would highly recommend Tara to my family and friends.


Tara was extremely helpful and responsive - I did not have much knowledge about purchasing land and the details involved with building, etc.  She answered all my questions and if she did know the answer, she was able to reach out to colleges and find out for me. She is well connected to the local  real estate industry, so she is very informed about the various areas that I was looking to build. In addition, she is a great person to work with - friendly and personable. I would, and will, highly recommend Tara as your agent! 

We were looking to find a great second home to enjoy and share with our family.  After exploring all the options around our primary home in Charlotte we chose the Boone/Blowing Rock area.  After our initial meeting with Tara we knew we were working with an experienced and knowledgeable agent.               


Through the search process Tara always accommodated our schedule and was very generous with her time.  In addition, she knew the area extremely well and was able to match our preferences with the available listings so as to make each visit as productive as possible.            

Tara was very engaged throughout  the negotiation stage. She spared no details.  We felt as if she was serving as our advocate - always putting our interests first. Even after the closing, she was there to help if necessary.            

After many experiences buying and selling homes over our years of raising a family and progressing in life - we have encountered many individuals in the real estate business.  With those experiences as guide - it is without hesitation that we recommend Tara Davis!


Tara was more than a pleasure to work with. Having been in the business of placing people in job pathways, I'm happy to see this young lady has found her way into real estate.


This was my third year looking to buy property in North Carolina or Tennessee and had endless other realtors show me  properties within that time-frame.

Tara's knowledge of the area and market prices of similar properties was right on target. Her straightforward answers in all areas were refreshing and helpful.

Her finest quality was follow up. I was never wondering about issues related to my purchase, she had suggestions but was never pushy, just helpful.

If you are looking for property in the Boone area, the first person to ask is Tara David of Keller Williams High Country realty.



We have worked with many realtors in our time, and we can say without any hesitation that our experience with Tara Davis has been the most satisfying and enjoyable, by far.            


Every email we've written has been answered in minutes, if not seconds; always with thoughtful and wise solutions to whatever  dilemma we presented and thorough answers to our questions.            


We weren't entirely clear on whether we wanted property or an existing home, and she was game to show us both, not even batting an eye as we hemmed and hawed.            


Of course, the best part is that once we made up our minds, she zeroed in on exactly the property we'd envisioned, despite it being a rare commodity in this area, and helped us see the possibilities, giving us all the information we'll need to make this property our home.            


And here's the thing: with all this competence comes a heart of gold. We didn't bring warm enough clothes for the changeable February weather, and when we met on a snowy, windy morning, Tara had extra coats, gloves, and hats in her car for us.  What a woman!            


I dearly hope anyone looking for real estate in the Boone/Blowing Rock/Banner Elk area (and beyond) contacts Tara.  The experience will be entirely delightful.


I've bought and sold several homes over the years with agents of varying experience levels.  I can tell you that Tara was fantastic, and the best agent I have worked with! I will not hesitate to contact her again with future needs, and will give her name with high recommendations to others!  She is responsive, transparent, upbeat, and full of integrity!
