Mariah has been helping us look for a place for one year exactly. We came to Lake Lure for vacation and fell in love. She was flexible as we explored fixer uppers, luxurious homes in Rumbling Bald, and the possibility of building from scratch. She has a great disposition, very knowledgeable of the area, professional, always prompt and always followed through with what she said she would do. She really helped make purchasing a home, 4 hours away from where we lived, a much smoother transition. Thanks Mariah - would recommend you to anyone looking to relocate to this area. Best of luck and stay in touch! lpdost
I contacted MR. Lake Lure brokerage 3 years ago and was lucky to have Mariah Leahy respond to my request. We thought our move to the Lake Lure area was happening soon. Mariah was ready to help and provided us listings that met our requirements. We weren't ready to move and as it turned out, we weren't ready for 3 years! However, Mariah was patient and followed up with me on a regular basis.

Our buying trip in February 2017, Mariah had a great list of homes for us to look at. Her knowledge of the area and amenities was very helpful in making a decision on a home to purchase. She handled all of the paperwork quickly and painlessly.

Results of first buying trip fell through and 2 weeks later we had buying trip 2. And this time she had found us our dream home! Again, her patience, knowledge of the area, and negotiation skills got us a great deal on our forever home!

I would recommend Mariah as an agent to any of my friends and family looking to relocate to Lake Lure!
Mariah spent a VERY patient year with us while we looked for the perfect home in North Carolina. She was always ready and available to show us homes that were exactly what we were looking for. When we finally purchased a home she facilitated the closing and left us with very little to worry about. She made the process a very enjoyable one! bell357
Mariah was professional throughout the process. She helped me identify the geographic areas I would like to look at and was very knowledgeable about he various specifics about each neighborhood. She knew covenants and rules, fees, contractors, lawyers and other professionals needed for the due diligence to investigate the property right through the closing process. I relied on her greatly as an out of state purchaser and told I wished she was my agent when I had gone through the process for my first three homes. I would highly recommend her and if needed in the future she will be my agent again. bmcnamar7
Mariah showed us the house we ended up buying, She let us take our time to talk through things. She also had a couple of other comparable homes for us to look at (We ended up not looking at any other houses). I felt She is very nice & very Professional. joe lee1980
Mariah went way above my expectations in helping me with all the details involved in the buying process. She located documents and blue prints of the subdivision from its origination. Got me in touch with the right people to answer all my many questions. Did much of the errands involved (i.e.. ordering equipment , picking it up 45 min. away , going to the home to test the internet reception, returning the equipment twice once when the company gave her the wrong product and again when it didn't work, then found other avenues to solve the problem and ensure a very happy new home owner. After the closing she has continued to provide me with on going support answering questions and printing up documents. Her coworkers always comment on how hard she works and how organized she is. Mariah loves her job and you will love her.

Want or need a professional and competent real estate agent in the Lake Lure area . . . or anywhere in North Carolina? Do yourself a favor, save yourself a lot of time and effort, and call Mariah Leahy with Coldwell Banker Quarters Real Estate in Lake Lure, NC. She is absolutely the best of the best! Read my review and you will see why she deserves far more than just a mere "5 Star Rating."
My wife and I were looking to buy a log cabin home in the mountains of North Carolina and a friend of ours who owned a home in Lake Lure recommended we contact Mariah Leahy with Coldwell Banker. From our initial meeting with Mariah, we knew immediately we had found the real estate agent we were looking for.
After nearly 12 long months, numerous trips to the Blowing Rock, Boone, West Jefferson, Maggie Valley, and Lake Lure areas of North Carolina and looking at over 100 log cabin mountain homes for sale--yes, one entire year and 100+ homes (some multiple times!)--we finally found the "right" one and ended our search in Lake Lure. Our agent, from beginning to end, was Mariah Leahy. She was a true "God-sent" angel who, despite showing us over 70 homes just in the Lake Lure area alone, giving us countless hours of her undivided time and attention, serving as our private chauffeur on many, many different days during our exhaustive search, and answering thousands upon thousands of questions, never complained once! She is, indeed, "one of a kind!"
From the very outset through the lengthy, complicated, and stressful loan approval process to the final closing, Mariah was always available, either in person, via email, phone, or text. She faithfully supported our sometimes discouraging, yet determined, efforts to find the "right" home . . . and, yes thankfully, we finally did, but only because we had the "right" agent, Mariah Leahy! Without her unsurpassed knowledge, expert advice, intuitive insight, sound wisdom, undivided support, persistent patience, and professionalism we would probably still be looking or have given up our search. We did our "due diligence" and Mariah was right there with us every step of the way the entire time! Without question, we could never have successfully accomplished our objective without her!
You simply will not find a better real estate agent anywhere!
Thank you, Mariah! You are far more than "just another real estate agent," you are the top 1%'er in a league of your own! You are also a friend I am honored and proud to recommend!

I have be mortgage lending for thirty seven years and originated over one billion dollars in residential real estate. Over this time I have worked with hundreds of realtors. I would have to put Mariah Leahy in the top five. Her professionalism, dedication, and pure love in selling real estate is hard to find in a world of Realtors looking out for their own best interest and not the customers. This is also rare to find with a Realtor that has less than five years selling real estate. Her mentor, Greg Balk, and the staff of Coldwell Banker Quarters have nurtured her to become a proven winner. If you need a Realtor in the western North Carolina, I could not recommend a better and more professional person than Mariah Leahy. You will not be disappointed. Steve Clark
We could not have asked for a better agent in our search for a vacation home. Mariah was so knowledgeable and easy to work with, and she was willing to spend as much time as we needed looking at homes. She was wonderful during the negotiations, very professional while setting up all the inspections and made the closing extremely easy. Even after taking possession of the home, we have called her for advice and guidance and she is always more than willing to assist and gives us excellent information. We had not purchased a home in almost thirty years, and she made it a completely pleasureable process. We would highly recommend her. Dennis and Marie Waller
I have been in industry for over 40 years dealing with professional business people and can say she is "top gun" in her profession. Below are confirmations of my opinion:
1.) Since I was living in SC, she was able to communicate cabins for sale in NC though emails of listing that fit my parameters (location, pricing, gated communities, mountain views etc) daily.
2.) Mariah was available to show me cabins on approximately six different trips to NC, with viewings of 4 to 5 cabins on each trip, without trying to "push" me to make an offer. Her patients was remarkable, since even with the my "listing" parameters that she followed, I still was waiting for the right one, which we found!
3.) She offered professional advice on making the following: offer, conter offer, various professional service (home inspectors, closing attorneys etc) which I could choose from or to make my own arrangements.
4.) Since I was in SC, she represented me at the home inspection and as my agent was on time with all the closing documents by email necessary to close. This included communications with the mortgage company that I chose.
Bottom line - You won't be disappointed with choosing Mariah Leahy as your agent regardless if your local or out of town.
