Ilona and Jeff are a fabulous team and are the absolute BEST to work with. They worked diligently to make sure selling and buying was a smooth and seamless process. Ilona has such an outgoing personality that it made every step of this venture fun. As a growing family of 4, with a new little one on the way, we were obviously in a time crunch to sell our current home and find/buy something bigger before the new baby arrived. Ilona came through with flying colors with selling our current home within 90 day and finding us the perfect larger home that met all of our family’s needs and then some. We were able to close and get moved in the new home with a month and a half to spare before our newest little one was expected to arrive. Needless to say, they were on top of the game at every moment. I personally could not have asked for a better experience. We highly recommend Ilona & Jeff!!! They will surpass your expectations.
I am still working with Ilona to find and purchase a home in the Asheville area. I'm totally confident we can find the perfect home for me and my family. Each time I communicate with Ilona she is back to me in a very short amount of time. I really enjoy her candid approach with regard to where, when and how I will like a area in which to buy my dream home.
Ilona is the very best, honest and fun.
Ilona was great to work with as our buyers agent. She was professional, friendly, honest, willing to work with our tight schedule, and very responsive.....When we finally found "the house", she even worked late into the night to help us submit the offer.
She has a good understanding of the Asheville market, and was both helpful and unbiased in looking at the pros and cons of each house.
I researched and interviewed a few agents before deciding on Ilona as our buyers agent.
She exceeded our expectations and we'd highly recommend her to our friends.
Bought a home in 2014 in Jugtown, Candler, NC 28715.
As a first time home buyer I was extremely naive about the process and had a ton of questions all the time. Ilona not only answered every one of them super promptly, but never made me feel like I was a bother and really took her time to thoroughly explain everything to me. She worked hard to find my dream house and saved me from several money pits by being super thorough. She is extremely personable and really made this process way easier than it would have been without her. She worked hard to get me the best terms and I really came out ahead. I highly recommend this husband and wife team!

Ilona and Jeff were so supportive during the sale of my mother's property. Mom had a difficult property to sell, and a difficult economy to sell it in, and making grand changes and updates to make the property more sale-able was difficult for her. Despite these things, Jeff & Ilona were always attentive and responsive from listing to sale (and follow-through, as well). They always provided honest guidance, but did it with kindness and with an understanding to Mom's needs and constraints.
Ilona was great with communication. She diligently followed up with all viewings, took pictures every season to keep the listing fresh and to show updates, and discussed all feedback with Mom with a discerning eye for *reasonable* improvements.
When it came to the sale of the property, she kept the process moving. She kept up communication between the two parties. She quickly worked through several issues that came up during the final steps of the sale so that the closing stayed on date and had no surprises. Much of this time, I was out of the country, so I was so thankful that she could anticipate Mom's worries and make them as simple to solve as possible.
I could not be happier with how great Jeff & Ilona both were to work with. I would definitely recommend them, and I would work with them again.
They took on a difficult to sell property, helped me find help to make it more marketable, and also helped me find just the right home when it did sell. My property was a small, mountain farm which I could no longer care for. Although my late husband and I had put much effort into making it a farm, it definitely needed work to make it productive again and the farmhouse was rustic to say the least. A previous Realtor had not been at all helpful and even insisted I be present to show the farm each time it was shown. Ilona and Jeff sold the property to one of the first couples who looked at it
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Hendersonville, NC.
Jeff and Illona were great to work with. They really seemed to care about fitting my needs as a client and I felt like they worked hard for me. They were always available when I needed them, even when Illona was on a short and much needed vacation. They make a great team. Illona is great with the negotations and finding out the details and Jeff is good with dealing with the numbers and facts. They never put any pressure on me to make a decision and were honest when I needed it, which I really appreciated. I have already recommended them to my friends!

They were a joy to work with and are open to talking about anything. Can sometimes be a little assertive in a home, but they're sales people so that is to be expected. They were very nice and hard working, even if we were difficult to deal with and indecisive.
