Testimonials

“We have known Eva for 4-5 years in different capacities. She rented my home several times and eventually sold it. She also decorated and staged my large empty home – and it looked fantastic! Eva works so very hard and does what she says she’s going to do. Details are always taken care of. There is no one who has their integrity more intact than she does! She is caring, kind, understanding and big hearted…wanting to help those who need it.  When it comes to business, she is smart and always on top of things. Because she herself is such as decent human being, she doesn’t stand for injustice or an attempt of being pushed around – for herself or others, and will stand up for what is right.  Our business relationship has come to an end with the selling of my house, but we consider Eva a friend forever.”  Dorre and Doug White – Fairview, NC

“We know selling a house can be difficult. Choosing a realtor is one of the most important decisions you can make during that process. Eva made that decision very easy. She is very knowledgeable about the area and how to price a home. She has great ethics and we knew we could trust her. She answered all our questions along the way and was even there to congratulate us at the closing!  We definitely recommend Eva and will be using her again!”  Jason and Amanda Parker – Candler, NC

“We highly recommend Eva Steward as being the most ethical, conscientious and reliable broker in Asheville. Her motivation and hard work ethics as an agent can’t be topped. Thank you so much Eva—We deeply appreciate your relentless work on our behalf. My husband & I have worked with numerous real estate agents in the past and we can tell you she knows all the ins and outs of the home selling/buying process. She is professional, competent and personable; she listens, cares and will be with you every step of the way whether you are buying or selling. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants an honest, experienced, personable and professional agent. She will keep the difficult process of home buying or selling in a positive light every step of the way! It has been a delight to have an agent who worked so hard to help us buy the home of our dreams. There are a lot of realtors to choose from, but Eva proved to be the best. Go with her. You’ll be glad you did…she gets results.”  Alan & Karen Rosenfarb – Asheville, NC

“Selecting a realtor to represent you in buying or selling property is key. Eva is the consummate professional and her background in the law was so helpful to us in negotiating the complicated stages involving contracts. She will work hard for you and never drop the ball. We would not hesitate to recommend her services to our closest friends.”  Bill & Holly Reynolds – Asheville, NC

“We have known Eva and Dan for 9 years and have always admired and respected them for their kindness, integrity and compassion.  In 2007, Eva listed and sold our home in Hendersonville within 3 months in the dead of winter. We attribute the quick sale to Eva’s creative marketing and her dedicated follow through. We then moved to Durham and contacted Eva in January 2014 to help us find a second home. Again, she came through quickly finding a gem; exactly what we were looking for! We are now remodeling our new vacation home thanks to her commitment to quality customer service. She always did everything she said she would do and kept us informed every step of the way. She knows the WNC market well and because of her expert advice, we ended up purchasing a home in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood that exceeded our expectations. We will recommend Eva exclusively for real estate needs and Dan for building and renovations; they both genuinely care about their customers and are committed to quality and doing the right thing.”  Marsha & Jim Porter -Durham, NC  

“We were extremely pleased with the work Eva did to help us get the home we wanted! She worked very hard on our behalf through many difficult situations, and was able to get us the home for a much lower price than we planned. We definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase a home!”  Phillip and Sarah Roop – Asheville, NC

“We were looking to relocate to Asheville in early 2011.  We knew we wanted to get a feel for the area before buying or building so we decided to rent for a while.  We met Eva in our search for a rental home.  She showed us several places and while we did not end up renting any of them, we came away knowing we had met a really good person.  After we moved to Asheville, we ran into some problems with the Management Company where we rented, and after much frustration, and as a last resort, I called Eva to ask for advice.  Eva had no responsibility to assist, and she only knew us from the one day of looking at rentals, but that didn’t stop her from jumping in and assisting with our ordeal.  She was more than happy to help, and went out of her way to assist us in dealing with the issue.  Eva showed a genuine concern, and with her assistance and advice we were able to quickly resolve what could have become a long term issue.  When we decided it was time to start looking for property to build, Eva was our first call.  With her extensive knowledge of the area, and her ability to understand what we were looking for, she steered us to the perfect area, and ultimately the perfect lot to build on!  Eva is just good people, and a great Realtor.”   Jerry and Kristen Oliver, Asheville NC

“We relocated out of state and entrusted Eva to sell our home.   She was respectful, listened to and understood what we had to say, provided candid and insightful feedback,  understood the market, and worked on our behalf to produce positive results.   Eva truly went the extra mile to lease and then sell our house!”  Matt and Susan Hammond, Ohio

“When buying, doing major remodeling, and leasing a piece of investment property for the first time on my own, I cannot recommend Eva Steward highly enough! I let her know from the very beginning that I valued her input, so I profited greatly from her experience and advice. She gave me excellent guidance through the entire process, answered calls and e-mails in a timely fashion, and kept me informed along the way. Eva is intelligent, a tough negotiator, has a high degree of people skills, and a good knowledge of the law. In addition to helping me purchase the property, she also handled the process of leasing my property. She did an extensive background check, and I now have renters who are taking great care of my house, and pay promptly every month! My experience was both positive and profitable.”      Sarah Warren – Candler, NC

“Eva Steward of Best Quest Realty helped me go through the process of finding my first home.  She made it very easy and simple and got me the one I wanted!  I cannot put into words how thankful I am for calling her to get me started in my house hunting journey!”  Kaylen Francies – Fletcher, NC

“Words escape when it comes to describing what a blessing Eva Steward was to me during the time I needed to sell my home!  Eva has such a God given talent at helping others in more ways than just selling your home.  Eva is professional, knowledgeable, and more than willing to help!  She can market your home in a fashion that no other reality company I had interviewed.  She not only got my home sold in 4 weeks with a price that exceeded my expectations, she helped me with getting the house repaired, remodeled and packed for the move.  She even went to court with me as my advocate.  She will befriend you and bless you in more ways than you can imagine.  Eva works hard, stays on top of every offer, discussions, the legalities and you never have to worry about a thing.  Best Quest Reality is one top notch operation and I can’t begin to describe or emphasize the peace of mind you will find with this company! 

Thank you Eva for everything and making my transition a smooth operation!  You are an angel here on earth I am convinced.  Keep up the good work and May God Bless you for the good work you do!!!” Beverly Buckner – Asheville, NC

“As an out of state property owner renting out my investment home can be a risky and uncertain issue from a distant.  Since having Eva Steward as my renting/leasing agent/realtor I can attest that my worries are a thing of the past.  Ms. Steward seeks only the most qualified tenants and matches them perfectly with my requirements and property.” Mahli L. – Miami, FL

“We had our house on the market for two years with the big firms in the area.  They would list it and sit on it.  We rarely got showings.  Finally, we called Eva for advice.  She gave us options and her honest opinion, which was to do a short sale.  We listed it with her and got many showings in one month.  The house went under contract in less than 2 months.  We were fools to waste our time with anyone else!  She’s the best indeed!”  PN Arden, NC

“Eva is a true professional. She helped to guide us not only by looking at homes, but by also educating us on some of the building and legal issues and aspects as well.”  Scott and Shari Skjoldager- Asheville, NC

“The bank messed up with our loan after it was transferred from another lender and would not allow us to pay our mortgage. The next month they began the foreclosure process.  We hired a big name company real estate company to help us sell our home, but after a year they could not work with our bank. After we were dumped by our big name realtor, God sent Eva to us and she sold our house!  What a relief and blessing to have her help us.” SYB, Arden, NC

“We lost our jobs and were unable to find work for over a year because of the economy and are near retirement. We kept pulling money out of our small savings account to pay our mortgage while our dream home sat on the market. Our realtor did not price our house right and it just sat on the market for 4 months with only a few showings.  Our credit was always high and we always paid our bills on time, but we just could not keep this up any longer.  Eva approached us with the truth and a plan that eventually sold our home in a short sale process.  She listened to us and helped give us the direction we desperately needed.  She even helped sell some of our furniture on Craigslist.  We could not have done this without her expertise and prayers.”  VVH – Arden, NC

“After 16 months of experiencing failed efforts in the loan modification process with three different so-called “Loan Modification” specialists,

I found Eva Steward.  Eva had the experience, knowledge, persistence, and integrity to find the “powers that be” which finally led to her negotiating an unbelievable loan modification that I could afford and that avoided foreclosure of my home.  I will always be grateful for her heartfelt compassion as well.”  CR – San Clemente, CA

 “I appreciate your help Eva! I gotta tell ya it’s been a pleasure working with you on this one [short sale].  It hasn’t been the easiest deal, but you always knew what you were doing.  You wouldn’t believe how clueless some of the realtors are that I work with. Hope if you get some short sales they’ll be assigned to me! Have a Great Holiday!”  Troy Arnidis, 12/17/09 Wachovia Bank, Short Sale – Loss Mitigation Department

“Eva helped us find our home here in Asheville in less than one day!  The home we settled on was a house in foreclosure.  Although the price of the house had already been significantly reduced, through Eva’s expert guidance we were able to successfully negotiate an even lower purchase price.  The house needed extensive repairs.  Her husband, Dan Steward and his company, Majestic Estate Builders, did a fantastic job making the necessary repairs, as well as additional remodeling and renovations.  The quality of Dan’s work was superb!  He was able to keep our costs within the budget and finished on time. They are the one-stop shop for anyone interested in real estate and we could not recommend anyone with higher standards than the Stewards. Their business and personal lives are governed by their faith in God and true professionalism.” Dr. William and Cindi Duerfeldt – Asheville, NC

“Working with Eva was a real pleasure.  She provided us relocation real estate services with high integrity and zeal.  We are so grateful for her help.” Brad and Michelle Sczesny – Arden, NC

“My husband and I have been real estate investors for over ten (10) years.  For a majority of that time, we have utilized Eva Steward’s services in purchases, sales, placement of tenants and property management for our Asheville properties.  Mrs. Steward’s education, experience and unsurpassed ethical standards make her an incredible asset for such purposes.  Anyone using Eva Steward’s professional services will be well served.”  Kirk and Shari Bevan – Greenville, SC

“We would highly recommend Eva to anyone looking to rent, buy or sell a home.  We found her to be extremely knowledgeable about our ever changing real estate market, professional and caring. She will work hard to represent you because she genuinely cares about people and finds great satisfaction in helping them make the best decision for their future.”  Michael and Leslea Fargnoli – Arden, NC

“I can’t say enough about Eva Steward and Best Quest Realty.  Eva took care of so many details with my listing.  Her enthusiasm, professionalism, and knowledge of the market are amazing.  I would highly recommend Eva to handle your real estate needs.”  Alston Brooks – Cayce, SC
