Love where you Live
Hi, my name is Grant James, and I’m a realtor in Hendersonville NC, affectionately known as “Hendo” by the locals. I’ve traveled these mountains far and wide, so whether you are looking for a quiet, creek-side cabin, or a renovated condo in the heart of Main Street, I’ll know exactly where to look. Born and raised in Henderson County and guided by southern values, you can be assured a friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive experience as we navigate the buying and/or selling process. I eagerly welcome you into historic Hendersonville, NC and the idyllic Blue Ridge Mountains, and I’ll gladly be your resident Western North Carolina guide.
"I hit it off right away with him, such a good guy, great personality. He was very helpful with staging my condominium, making recommendations, dealing with vendor repairs, and everything else that goes on in the world of real estate. All in all a great experience, he's a delight and I would certainly use him again, and highly recommend him!"

Socrates said that “wonder is the beginning of wisdom.” Well, I’ve wondered about engineering, I’ve wondered about business ownership, and about estate and antique sales. Most recently, I wondered about real estate in the town that I love. An eclectic career path for certain, and thanks to that trajectory, I come to you as a realtor with a trained eye for quality, fit/finish and structural integrity, who works with the grit and determination of a former small business owner. Loving where I live gives me abundance in many ways, and my desire is to give clients my personal expertise, experienced first hand.
"After two AirBnB disasters and over a week in hotels. Grant James saved the day and found us a house to stay in until we close on our home in a couple weeks!"

Kinsey & Cimberly G. talk about Grant
"Working with Grant has been a real pleasure. He's very motivated, very meticulous about getting the information correct in regards to your listing, making sure you have the appropriate comparables in order to get you the most revenue back from it. Grant is very compassionate and caring, he goes beyond what you experience from a regular real estate agent. I had absolutely no problem selling my home, and sold it in a very short period of time. I can say with absolutely no reservations that I would recommend Grant to sell your home. Just ask me !"

A little bit about Grant
Born in Asheville NC, but raised in Hendersonville in a large family circle, my grandmother was my first Sunday School teacher. My high school sweetheart, herself born and raised in Brevard, NC, is now my wife of 37 years; we share abundant joy in our two wonderful, caring, compassionate, hilarious, model-worthy children. I really enjoy the game of golf, although it absolutely despises me - could be I’m just in it for the scenery anyhow. I’m captivated by trains, early American coinage, bowling, jogging the Oklawaha Trail, vintage baseball cards, cooking, and good music.
"Grant took care of absolutely everything I needed to purchase my home, including a buyer possession before closing! He did not just help me find the perfect place. He called repair services for estimates, contacted mortgage companies for second opinions and information, he measured, he compared. Grant provided more than a full-service experience."

"As a lifelong Henderson County resident, he knows the neighborhoods, back roads and attributes of every area. We knew that we could trust his opinions and recommendations of safety, amenities and other things that were important to us."
- Tom & Terry W.
“Grant quickly understood just what I was looking for, even though I couldn't put it into words.”
- Karla E.
"You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying or selling a home."
