​"We were first time home buyers so we needed expert guidance in finding a home in Tryon, NC. We were so fortunate to have Laura Peek and Ray Gasperson of Gasperson-Peek Realty as our realtors. First, and most importantly, Laura and Ray are people of honesty and integrity. Even though there is low inventory in Tryon, they do not want to sell you a house where you won't be satisfied with your choice. Their philosophy is to help you find a home that you want within your price range. A home that you will stay in for a number of years as moving is time-consuming and stressful. We were very fortunate to have been referred to Laura and Ray and have their expert advice and guidance in buying a condo in Tryon. As first time home buyers, and after seeing several homes, we are over the moon with our choice and with how we were guided through our first experience as home buyers"
