"I worked with Amy Wood on the sale of my Saluda home. She and her team are the experts in the area, and my sale could not have been more successful! I wanted the best, and I got it! She guided me in what I needed to do to prepare the house for sale including how I should stage it, and she hired an incredible photographer to showcase my home and property. I am so grateful for the outcome."
"They helped make buying our first home an easy experience. Everyone they put us in contact with, the appraiser, the inspector, the contractor, were all top notch and great to work with. If we ever decide to move again, we'll definitely be using Looking Glass."
"Amy Wood helped us find and buy the place of our dreams. We have bought and sold much real estate in our time, and have worked with a multitude of realtors. Amy was the best! She was knowledgeable (not only of the area, but of the laws and processes, as well), responsive, kept us informed, listened to our needs and wants, and got us what we wanted, despite it being a challenge. She made it happen! Amy was a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to sell your existing home or to buy a new one. Thank you, Amy! "
-Debbie and Ken Ahlers
"Amy Wood , in the Saluda office , is extremely knowledgeable about the area and very responsive. One of the most impressive traits is she has been as responsive after the sale as before , helping us to identify contractors and workmen needed to update our new home.
I recently listed land I own in Lake Toxaway with Jason Shepard because of the quality of Amy’s work- he is just as responsive and knowledgeable."
"Amy Wood is a wonderful person to work with and an expert in Western North Carolina real estate. Her even hand, sunny disposition, and practicality combine beautifully with her decades of experience in these beautiful mountains. I highly recommend Amy to my friends and family and if you want to bring joy into your real estate pursuits, she is the professional for you!"
"Usually brokers, in my experience, are particularly good in either the front end or the back end of the transaction. Amy was wonderful all throughout! She knew what she was doing and had good options available at her fingertips when we ran into a snag. No detail dropped between the cracks and she was extremely responsive. She knew the area and all the people/resources we would need. She was very knowledgeable during the inspection and knew how to represent our interests in a fair and honest manner. She even helped us out the day after the closing when there was an issue. I would definitely use Amy again and would recommend her to anyone needed a realtor."
"Amy Wood is an amazing agent. Her willingness to help get the property ready to put on the market was unbelievable. Her contacts within the community provided timely and affordable services, including landscaping, electrical work, painting, housekeeping and window cleaning. People in the community love her and are willing to do anything for her. She makes a call and the requested work is done within a couple of days. The property sold for 55% over asking and the credit goes 100% to Amy Wood."
"I have bought and sold 10 homes. Amy made this by far the easiest and best !"
"Amy kept us informed on the sale of cabin even when she was on vacation in Alaska."
-Jim & Barbara Parks
"Amy has great people skills and enthusiasm. She also displays high ethics and integrity in the way she approaches her job. She is a pleasure to deal with while being extremely competent. The video that Amy had prepared for the sale of our home was outstanding. We believe it played a huge role in the selling our our home so quickly. The buyer lives in England and never saw our house in person, so we believe the video was a key factor in the sale. Many of our friends saw the video and were highly impressed. Dori Ray was a big help to Amy and us. We believe Amy got us top value for the sale of our home and highly recommend her to others."
"Solid in every way"
"Amy Wood came highly recommended by Tom McHugh of Carolina Mountain Land Finders.He had been the realtor for my parents when they bought the land in 1991, but he was in the process of retiring when I contacted him that I wanted to sell the property.He said that Amy was a very capable realtor and had worked with her several times so he suggested calling her to list my property.Once I spoke to Amy and then met her in person, I knew she was the
right realtor to get my seemingly 'impossible' land sold! She listed it on a Friday and had 2 offers by that Monday, one of which I accepted and closed about 3 weeks later! She is amazing! Friendly, personable, very knowledgeable of the Saluda area and just an all around nice person! I would highly recommend her!!"
"Amy understood and appreciated my property, did her research and helped me develop a marketing strategy that worked. I felt she always had my best interest at heart when it came to pricing and negotiation of matters related to the sale of my property. She was very efficient, honest, positive and disciplined during the entire process. It was a true pleasure to work with her through a somewhat difficult experience of letting go of a property which was dear to me and brought my family, friends and me much joy for two and a half decades. She is truly professional, exceptional and first class!"
"Amy is thorough in her preparations to sell a property. She visits the site several times, meets with the seller, locates appropriate comps and listens. The photos that she had taken highlighted the property's positive aspects and the listing page was accurate and intriguing. It was a pleasure to work with Amy. We will use her again."
"Even though the property had been on the market with another local firm with few lookers, Amy produced a marketing program which produced prospects and sold the property in 7 months. The Staging of the property, marketing materials and market delivery resulted in the sale. Most of the furnishings were sold also and the packaging of the two contributed to the sale. Amy Wood met all obstacles of resistance from the buyer, made me aware of the obstacles, provided professional advice and persisted until the right buyer was found."
"Amy Wood was exceptional from listing to sale of my property. The photos and marketing were the best. She kept me informed every step of the way So pleased."
"The service Amy Wood provides is unlike anything we have experienced in our lives. Her knowledge, guidance and support throughout the process, and after, were above and beyond. She exhibits the highest level of professionalism while also bringing the personal touch of a neighbor. There's no one we'd prefer to work with."
-Elan & Kate Bush
"Amy was a wonderful agent who I felt went above and beyond to sell our property, she spent hours hiking our 10 areas with potential buyers , though it took 3 years to sell our property we always knew that someone with a dream and a vision would come along. we had 3 offers at once and with amy''s knowledge and negotion abilities she was able to get me an amazing offer. I want to thank her for her closing this deal for me and making all the paperwork so easy esp at this time since I have recently lost my husband..."
"Amy has a stellar reputation. It was only surpassed by my fabulous experience dealing with her."
"Just after we were introduced to Amy by phone she went immediately to work actively searching for a house and property that would be perfect for us. In fact she worked so persistently that we only needed a few weeks to be under contract! I highly recommend Amy Wood if you are looking for a purchase in Saluda."
-Susan Pearlstine Norton
"Amy is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly and trustworthy. I would highly recommend her to anyone!"
"Amy Wood went above and beyond for the purchase of this property, despite the fact that it was just a vacant lot. She made time for us when we were in town and did critical research and coordinations for us when we couldn't be there. Amy's spirit, knowledge, and determination got us where we wanted to be. This deal wouldn't have happened without her. We're so glad we found her."
"Amy did a great job"

-Dale and Wendy McEntire
"We loved dealing with Amy. From the start she put us at ease with her warm and sunny disposition. I can’t imagine finding a better agent in the Saluda area than Amy Wood."
-Greg and Anona Tolar
"Amy was professional, helpful, and all around excellent to work with."
"One of my best decisions.. and I've made a few. I was at one time a real estate sales person in another state. Amy does things just as I always tried to do them. Not many agents have the dedication that takes. I don't have the time to write the entire book. Keep up the good work and do whatever is needed to keep Amy with you. I did a testimonial for Amy when she sold my house a couple of months ago. Dig it out and repeat it in caps. John"
"Began by looking for a building lot to replace the property owned. I was on a project on Ocracoke Island and communicated with Amy by email and phone for several weeks. The the hurricane struck the Island ending my project. On return to Saluda Amy and I decided to prepare for listing my existing property. We did so and a buyer struck before we got the listing done. A really quick broker!!! She also located a building lot for me and provided introductions to people I needed to know re permits etc. Had no time to advertise or do a campaign..... the best kind of program. Little work after the preparation. This is the first time I can remember a performance rating I did with all ratings at the very top and I have literally done hundreds. I could not find any characteristic that deserved other than an excellent rating.. In this project Amy Wood treated my listing and sale as if it was the only one she had. It was like having an entire office working for you. I will certainly recommend her to friends and relatives as being the first Broker to contact for buying or selling real estate in this geographical area."
"Amy was super fun and polite. My wife and I really enjoyed working with her."
-John & Lois Seiber
"Amy Wood went above and beyond in everything she did for me while working through the purchase of this home. From the very first time I met her, she stayed late to show me the house, continually helped coordinate inspections, including being there many times as I was not in the area. I had a blast working with Amy. She is knowledgeable, professional, friendly, funny, and just overall fantastic. I truly don’t know that I could have made it happen without Amy!"
"Amy was an amazing asset to the sale of our house. She jumped in when we needed her to and gave us our space when we desired it. She has a good grasp of the value of a property and was spot on with her estimates and opinions. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know. She is professional, honest and a pleasure to work with."
"Amy made us feel like we were her only client and met with us when we needed her. Being from out of state can make the process hard. Amy eliminated those problems."
"Highly recommend Amy Wood for her professionalism, care for clients and thorough knowledge of markets and the real estate business."
"Amy's family values and general interests as an outdoor enthusiast were very important to my wife and I. Amy knew what we wanted based on several detailed discussions over a 3-5 year period of time. As we visited property, our interests evolved and Amy's knowledge of this area helped tremendously
in shaping our focus until we found the right property."
"Amy Wood is awesome! Not only did Amy tell me she could sell my home, she did! And fast! For a truly kind and professional broker, go see Amy Wood. Tim Robbins"
"Amy is a very close friend and a blessing to our community. I knew she would get the job done and find exactly what I was looking for. She delivered! She was everything I needed and made my first time home buying experience a piece of cake!"
"Great job, and quick too!"
"Amy Wood used very descriptive words in discussing my place in the mountains. She made me feel like it was indeed a special place. She is very personable and can sense the feelings and needs of others which was great for the seller. I would think those characteristics would be great for the buyer also. She made the experience of selling a place I was emotionally attached a most pleasant experience."
"Amy is thoughtful, caring and supportive, and demonstrates a high degree of knowledge about the local real estate market. As a result, I was able to set an asking price that resulted in a quick sale. I would highly recommend Amy Wood and the Cathy Jackson team at the office in Saluda to anyone who is looking for a place to enjoy this beautiful area."
"We chose Amy based on prior proven results. The house we listed was not in Amy’s locale (40 minutes away), but we felt that Amy could do the best job for us - and she certainly did. A total professional and a pleasure to work with, Amy did a fantastic job!"
"Amy Wood did everything related to the sale very well. I now consider her a friend and will contact her on return visits to Saluda to see my daughter and granddaughter. I met her husband and kids; a nice family. Her knowledge, experience, good humor, integrity and genuine desire to do the right thing and her best make recommending Amy easy."
"Always honest, knowledgeable, helpful"
"She was excellent from start to finish the process. She is definitely THE one to recommend for for all real estate needs in the Saluda/Hendersonville area!"
"An overall WONDERFUL experience! Thanks Amy"
"I highly recommend Amy Wood. She is professional, knowledgeable and Always has a positive and contagious attitude. Working with her was a real pleasure."
"We contacted Amy on a Sunday morning to request her help in viewing and choosing a house. We had been searching on our own for over a month and had tried to,work with another agent wh never was available. She aborted her family plans, showed us two homes and discussed others in the following 24 hours. She helped us decide on the property which truly suited us best. We placed a bid on Monday afternoon which was accepted. Amy brings her full attention to clients. She listens intently to what is desired in a home and brings a positive attitude to finding the right House at the right price in the right location....all of this clearly aligned with the client’s wishes. My husband and I have used Amy previously. We think there. Is no better broker....period!
Amy is relentless in her availability and attention to getting the deal done!"
"Amy Wood personally contacts other agents to tell them about the listing. Amy Wood is really accessible. Always willing to discuss any issue that comes up. She researches the answer if not known to her. She is thoroughly knowledgeable about related professionals who appraise, inspect, and fix things! She also brings an amazing, positive intentionality to the sales process, engaging the Seller's positive vision also."
"Amy Wood did an outstanding job. She took my whole story and circumstance into consideration and threw the book at helping me sell my home. She went to her own personal expense and she used gobs of personal time to assist me. I was a first time home owner, therefore a first time home seller, so I leaned heavily on Amy to help me get the maximum I could on my home in somewhat of a time-sensitive manner. Her marketing of the home made it a hot hot item from the first weekend it went on the market. I did everything she asked me to do to put the home's best foot forward and that kind of teamwork paid off....more for me than her, I'd assume as I probably whittled her down to a lesser per hour than she deserved. She may argue that she faired better than that, but I know there were multiple days she laid her head down and opened her eyes to thoughts of how to find and secure the best buyers for my home. I have a commercial property in Tryon that I will next ask Amy Wood to list for me and help me to sell. I am a life-long client of Amy Wood, out of Saluda, NC. Any seller or buyer is very wise to choose her."
-Carol Lynn Jackson
"I would recommend Amy to everyone based Amy's professionalism and the fast results we enjoyed both selling and buying property in Saluda. Always ready with an idea or a referral or simply an update, Amy kept us well informed through the entire process of listing, showing, contract negotiation and
final closing. Completely positive experience based on trust, courtesy and professional experience."
"Amy made our buying experience a delightful event. We look forward to enjoying our vacation home in Saluda!"
"Amy Wood is a wonderful agent who went above and beyond in every aspect of selling my home. I am grateful beyond measure!"
"Amy went above and beyond to find us our dream home. A historic home was very important to us and she took the time to get to know us and our preferences and never pressured us to go see homes that didn't fit what we were looking for. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!"
"Shared earlier. She is great"
"We could not have been happier, Amy's knowledge of the area, the market and was awesome to work with"
"Amy had mentioned to me the house on Frost Road a few months back, and I told her I wasn't ready yet to buy a house. But when I was ready, she not only helped arranged a rental deal to let me live in the house until closing, but she also helped - in two weeks- get the house move-in ready-- she coordinated plumbers, electricians, carpenters so that we could move in during Christmas break. Most realtors would have said it was impossible, but Amy does not know what that word means. She is a really hard worker, an organized person, and a friendly person. I knew that she was genuine
in her work to get my kids and I into our new home as quickly as possible, and she worked hard to arrange a not-quite- traditional deal which worked out beautifully for both buyer and seller. She stayed in touch with me throughout the process and kept me up to date on anything I needed to know and do. She is the ideal agent for buyer or seller."
"Amy Wood is an outstanding realtor. She is both knowledgeable and professional. Amy was prompt in obtaining a buyer for the property. She made the buyer comfortable with purchasing the house. Amy was accessible anytime she was needed to assist with issues between the buyer and seller. Amy was efficient in handling closing documents. I would recommend Amy Wood to anyone interested in either buying or selling property."
"Amy Wood acted as a dual agent in our transaction. Despite being in a delicate position concerning buyer vs. seller, she handled everything in an extremely professional, friendly and timely manner. We will work with Amy again, if the opportunity presents itself and will tell friends & relatives about her."
