Extraordinarily professional, responsive, and creative in structuring a difficult deal with multiple interlocking parts. Dealt with a difficult buyer in a sensitive and effective manner to get a deal done that looked dead at multiple times. I’ve done 35 deals over the years and Mark Fields & Associates is in the top 3 brokers with whom I’ve worked.

In the Spring of 2016, we decided to list our Mountain home in the Asheville area. We originally listed our property with a different agency in the Asheville area based on a recommendation from my builder from Atlanta. After several weeks I could tell that the realtor and his team were not going to get the job done and that we needed to make a change. I have listed multiple properties and frankly I have never had to let a realtor “go” before, so it was a very hard decision to make. Once the decision was made though, I was on a mission to find the best team for us to work with. After about a month of talking to folks in the local area and also through a lot of researching through Internet searches, print copy advertising,etc.,it became clear to me that Mark and his team were ahead of their competition.
My builder and I contacted him as soon as we had identified him as the Best of the Best in Asheville and Western North Carolina. Mark was very quick to respond and the moment we met and talked about the property, I knew he and his team were a great fit for us and we hired him on the spot. Within a week, we had signed the contract, the pictures and drone work were done and we were ready to go to market.
I am very pleased to say that we sold the house in a matter of weeks. For a high end real estate transaction, this is quite unusual. I can honestly say that Mark’s creativity coupled with the amazing team of folks that he works with is what made the magic formula. I have never seen such brilliant work and dedication to making sure “The Message” of the property is conveyed through all streams of media…written copy, amazing pictures and drone work and frankly, representation through any media. It was absolutely stunning!
I cannot express my gratitude to Mark and his team enough! They were wonderful to work with and I am very confident that you will find them to be the Best of the Best in Western North Carolina. They are by far the best representative of high end real estate that I have found. You could not have better representatives here.

Mark Fields & Associates did such an awesome job for us in selling our home. We knew our home was a gem, but other realtors we talked to kept advising us to list well below what we knew our house should be worth due to low comps that were basically not comparable. Mark gave us extremely valuable advice on making our house look even more spectacular. He laid out everything he was going to do to sell our home and did a top notch job. We trusted him with the timing of everything and I’m so glad we did. We had nonstop showings and sold for asking price in less than three weeks. I totally believe that it is due to his good judgement and expertise.
I have had the pleasure of working and knowing Mark Fields for the past 3 years. He recently helped my wife and I sell our high end home here in Asheville and he did a truly outstanding job. Having sold a fair amount of real estate during my life, I can say that without question, Mark is the very best of all the real estate folks I have met. He is a true marketer and understands how best to promote the product even when the situations are difficult. It is rare when someone who works for you becomes a true friend and confidante, but that is exactly what has happened.
We have dealt with quite a few realtors over the years and without any doubt Mark Fields is the best of the class. He understands much better than most how to truly market a property. His collateral was all first class and his desire to try different approaches was quite outstanding. He is a real pro and anyone who is trying to sell a high end home in the area would be remiss if they did not speak to Mark. We are over the top pleased with all that Mark has done to help us make the sale.

Mark Fields & Associates were the Realtor of choice to market and sell our home, here in western North Carolina.
Having had a successful career of over thirty five years as a Senior Corporate Executive both in the United States and aboard, with my initial emphasis in sales and marketing, I was particularly impressed with Mark Fields and Associates and their approach to marketing my home.
My home was sold as a cash purchase to the buyers and their agent before physically visiting the property. Their professionalism in relationship building is outstanding, for million dollar plus properties. They are the best without peers.
I fully recommend Mark Fields and Associates as a company who will be outstanding and successful in representing your interests in the western North Carolina marketplace.

My husband and I moved from North Carolina to California and decided to sell our Asheville area mountain home after we arrived out west. Mark Fields & Associates made the process very easy and straightforward despite the long distance and 3 hour time difference. Mark’s knowledge of local conditions and gorgeous marketing pieces resulted in minimal time on the market and an offer about 95% of list price. We were very pleased and would definitely recommend him to others.
Mark came to my home and immediately understood what it was I had. I was located in a remote location at an elevation above 5000ft and he knew exactly how to market it in a professional way. No holds barred he spent the necessary funds to do a comprehensive advertising and marketing campaign that brought a quick response (a qualified buyer). Thank you Mark Fields & Associates for your professionalism.

We are now officially two weeks removed from the climatic closing of our home in Asheville. As you are aware our family started the journey of finding a special and unique property in WNC over 6 years ago. Each summer we fell more in love with the region and in the summer of 2014 we made the decision that “this was the summer” that we were going to purchase a property.
During our preparation of investigating properties we called upon various brokers to learn more about their listings. During this process we were also trying to determine if there was a broker that would rise to the top from the perspective of professionalism and expertise. We were trying to decide if we would scout the area on our own or partner with someone in the event we came across a true professional. Being in the real estate business myself, we were not looking for a real estate broker to just show us property. Rather we were seeking a professional advisor that would serve as a trusted and patient advocate.
As destiny has a way of playing out, we stumbled upon your website and liked the way that you presented your listings. It was one of the more professional sites with rich photography and videos. After spending some time on the phone with you, I shared with Megan that I think we found “our guy” that could become our trusted partner. We arranged a meeting for when we would be in town and as a result of spending an hour with you our initial instincts were confirmed; Mark is not a traditional or conventional realtor/broker.
Mark, what we appreciated most about working with you was your incredible capability to simply listen to what we were thinking and feeling during the negotiation process and effectively communicating with us the difference between perception and reality. We learned a valuable lesson because of your counsel; never assume you know what others are thinking. Although we stated that this was the summer we would buy our dream property we are convinced that without you by our side we would have talked ourselves out of executing on our dream. This does not infer in any manner that you pushed us to proceed. Rather, you provided us with market insight that afforded us a high degree of comfort and confidence that we were making the right decision for our family. We would not be the proud stewards of our new Asheville home but for you being our advisor. For this, we are incredibly grateful and thankful.
Mark, you surpassed all of our expectations and you are a true professional. We appreciated your commitment to our family throughout the entire real estate process. I would highly recommend you to my family, friends, and clients. In fact we encourage you to count on Megan and I to serve as a client resource in the event that you have a possible client that is evaluating to engage your services. We would be more than honored to share our experience working with you and what they can expect.
Surprisingly, one of the most important outcomes of this entire journey is not just the excitement of realizing our family dream. It was also developing a relationship and friendship with our new family friend, Mark Fields. We are looking forward to spending time together and also growing a relationship with your family; just as you have done with ours.
From Mark & Samantha Read-Smith
Mark Fields is an excellent person not just an excellent real estate agent. Mark has been very helpful to my family locating properties that had the qualities and specifics we were looking for. He also is gifted in his negotiating skills. He is completely comfortable asking and negotiating through those tough questions with the buyers/sellers during the closing process. I highly recommend Mark for your real estate needs.

For 3 years, my husband and I were looking for an appropriate home to spend our summer months and later for retirement. We were working with another agent at that time. One day, the agent cancelled our appointment and left us hanging during a 3 day visit made solely for the purpose to find a home. We had heard good things about Mark Fields and were fortunate when we called that he could spontaneously take over and complete our day with the showing of several new homes which we had not been shown before. To our surprise he drove us to an established community of condos in the south of Asheville and proceeded to tell us all about the great location and quality of the residents. We were surprised that in the 3 prior years, the previous agent never showed us this community! We fell in love with it immediately! It fulfilled all of our wishes: it was a 1 floor villa with 3 bedrooms, a sunroom, large kitchen and spacious living room/dining room. Out of all the windows were 50 foot oak tees- which in this natural old setting made us feel at home immediately. We loved the location, the uniqueness of the homes and the fact that we could count on an established HOA to take care of our needs. We purchased the condo later that same afternoon and have been thrilled ever since! We were surprised at Mark’s expertise and refinement. We never felt pressured. He handled all of the following paper work expertly and we can recommend him without reservation! Any client of his should consider himself fortunate!!!

Mark was excellent at helping us through the whole process with such care and professionalism.? Mark was completely flexible with our schedule, patient, and accommodating to our needs. He really listened to us & we felt that he genuinely cared about helping us find exactly what we were looking for in a home. We could not be happier with Mark in helping us through the home-buying process!
Mark makes deals happen, buying or selling he knows his market and is upmost professional follows thru and does what needs to be done to close and finish a transction, sold my property in Candler after others tried for many months.

Mark Fields is a Real Estate Professional I have recommended time and again. He is a calming influence in what can be a stressful environment. Either listing a property to sell or to purchase. Mark has integrity, and a honest, genuine concern for doing all he can to make his clients goals reach fruition. It has been a pleasure to know and work together.
