When you have lived in a house for 29 years and raised your family there, it is a big deal when you get ready to sell this house. Kim Fox and JB Lawrence of Allen Tate Realtors were our first choice to help with this sale. They helped us with many details about what buyers wanted to see when buying a house, right down to picking just the right paint color. We were kept informed of all showings and followup comments by perspective buyers. We are grateful that our home sold to a family with children so that they can enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you Kim and JB.

We would not have our home without Kim and JB. With no prior connection, Kim and JB made us feel at ease immediately. They made the home buying process seamless. Kim and JB managed the process top to bottom, handled schedules, and provided great recommendations and connections. They were always available, prompt and went above and beyond with all questions. We cannot thank Kim & JB enough and look forward to staying in touch.
Matt and Teresa LaPiana
We closed on our forever home March 18, 2022 and have been waiting to give our review in fear we would sell our team short. Team Lawrence and Fox were exceptional in every aspect of finding and purchasing a home. They both made it so easy and assured us every step of the way that they were there for anything we may need. We looked at our home on February 3rd., made a purchase offer on the 4th., and closed March 18th. We were amazed at how quickly everything went. All to the credit of JB and Kim who helped us find our best deal for a mortgage and home owners insurance. Everyone would answer our questions, texts, emails and phone calls immediately. We used Allen Tate Companies for all our needs. We couldn’t be more satisfied and happy with how everything went during this purchase. Thank you again for everything. Be blessed …
When looking for the perfect property for our home Kim and JB could not have been more helpful! Within hours we had a list of potential properties to look at and within two weeks had an offer in on the perfect one. Kim was very supportive during the lengthy wait on a perk test and stayed on top of every detail. I would recommend this team to anyone looking for property or a home! Thank you Kim and JB!
"JB and Kim were the perfect combination. One of the 2 were always available, and both took slightly different approaches to negotiating and finding deals that I really appreciated. They both know the High Country area very well, and had connections to every type of contractor during my due diligence period. What they may not know is that I worked with several agents before them to try to find the agent I wanted to use going forward for investment opportunities, and as soon as I met Kim and JB, I knew I didn't need to look any longer."
I am a long-time friend and classmate of JB’s so there was never a question who I would contact to sell a parcel of land I own. They had a buyer for my land and we were under contract immediately! It is evident JB and Kim love what they do! They are everything you could want in a broker relationship, well-connected, knowledgeable and professional, yet totally at ease eliminating the stress that comes with negotiating a real estate transaction. I have other properties to sell and there is no doubt that I will work with Kim and JB again and I recommend you do the same!!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Team Lawrence and Fox!! I met Kim Fox a couple of months ago when my husband and I started to look for property in the Blowing Rock area...she was easy to talk to and knowledgable about the area. I soon learned that we had a lot in common! Whenever I'd ask to look at a home, she and JB were always eager and willing to accommodate us quickly. It was wonderful to draw from both of their vast experience in Watauga County. When we finally decided on a property, there were multiple offers and we had always held a firm belief that we'd
never participate in a bidding war. But Kim and JB talked us through it and changed our way of thinking. Thanks to them, we were able to purchase this home with incredible views. Dealing with them was an all around great experience!
Matthew & Martha S.
Kim and JB were INCREDIBLE!! They helped us find our dream mountain cabin getaway and we could not be more thankful for their professionalism, kindness, and patience. We hit every bump in the road with our financing and Kim was always there to lend an ear or be a shoulder to cry on. They were always available and saw this through with us till the end. Not only were they our realtors, but now they are our friends. We can't say enough about Kim and JB! Thanks guys for putting up with us. We appreciate you. GO TEAM LAWRENCE & FOX!!
I contacted J. B. Lawrence regarding the possibility of listing property in Ashe County. He and Kim Fox were prompt in their response and made an initial visit to the property. They met me a number of times at the property prior to listing to discuss options and offer their expert advice. They were able to secure written offers within three days of listing. During this three day period and during the entire purchase and closing process, I received email, text and verbal updates. When I contacted them for any reason, they were very gracious and always provided answers and support. I have told others about the outstanding results and service they provided and will certainly seek their help in the future if I wish to buy or sell property.

JB and Kim walked us through all the details of buying our house. They guided us and were there for us throughout the whole process. We felt so safe leaving everything in their capable hands. They were accessible and trustworthy and we never worried about anything. We are so thankful for all they did to help us with the purchase of our beautiful new home that we asked them to list our previous home. We would definitely recommend that you allow them to assist you with your real estate needs.
Rusty & Pam Blanton
Kim and JB always put our best interest ahead of anything else. They went above and beyond to find a house or property for us that met our needs or wants. We were in the market for a house or the right piece of land to put a house on. They found us a great house in a great location for a great price. Thanks again JB & Kim!
Nancy and George Puryear
Thank you so much for helping us find our new home in Fleetwood, NC. Your daily contacts during the process made us feel like we were your only clients. And once we found our home, your efforts in negotiating and closing the purchase in a timely manner made all the difference. Please rest assured that when we have real estate needs again we will call on you.

Kim and JB provided the utmost assistance in helping our family find and attain the perfect home! They carefully considered our needs, wants, and budget and guided us through every step of the process in relocating from out of state. Their knowledge of real estate and enthusiasm of what the High Country has to offer is evident. They treated us like family by going out of their way to answer our questions. We can’t imagine working with a more dedicated and trusted team!
Kim, J.B—Thanks so much for all of your efforts in helping me find my (hopefully) last home as I have reached my goal of “no more working for the man.” I appreciate how much you were working so hard with/for me to find just the right place. You made me feel so comfortable in how you accepted my wants and needs instead of just trying to sell me a home and close a “deal”—you are both very professional and at the same time very personable, understanding and such a pleasure to work with!!! Again THANKS for everything!!! Ray

Since 2018 we've been working with Kim Fox and J.B. Lawrence to help us with our Real Estate needs. In 2018 they helped us purchase our dream home on Beech Mountian and in 2021 they guided us through the process of purchasing a rental property, also on Beech Mountain. Each time they listened to our needs, understood our goals, and gave us sound advice throughout the process. They handled every aspect of the purchase and made it a smooth experience for us! Kim and JB are not just our Real Estate agents, they have become our friends. If you're searching for a property Boone, Blowing Rock, Beech Mountian area, we highly recommend their services!

Mary Bethe and I wish to thank both of you for helping us sell our property in Boone. The transaction went very well! We were pleased with your professional dealing with all the details involved even though we were in Alaska and unable to travel to Boone in order to do business face to face. The many phone conversations and faxing of required documents went very well. All bases were covered and we hope that the buyer was as pleased with the entire process as we were! Mr. Lawrence and Mrs. Fox wishing you a very healthy and prosperous 2021.

Moving into a new area and searching for a home can be very stressful and time consuming. However, brokers Kim Fox and JB Lawrence from Allen Tate Realtors made this challenge very simple and smooth from start to finish. They selected homes for viewing that fit our needs, our wish list, and our budget. Then, once we fell in love with a home they promptly put in an offer at our request and guided us through the entire process step by step from counteroffers to closing. Now we are happily residing in a home that we absolutely love. If you are looking for a team of brokers with knowledge, experience, and personal touches, we would highly recommend Team Lawrence & Fox. They make searching for a new home a wonderful and exciting experience; you will not be disappointed.
Kim and JB have served, and will serve, as the realtors for several properties I inherited. As a resident of Pennsylvania I knew very little about property values in the Boone area. Kim and JB guided me through the process for selling, quickly found interested parties, and handled the deals with great integrity. It was never necessary for me to make a trip to NC during COVID. I highly recommend Kim Fox and JB Lawrence as real estate agents! Thank you Kim and JB. Looking forward to our future deals! Stella

We decided to look at homes to buy in late fall. A friend of ours recommended JB Lawrence with Allen Tate Realty. We called him and he came to the house soon after that to meet us and discuss our wants. We met his work partner, Kim Fox, and they began helping us to find our new home. We called at all hours of the day and night with questions. They were always available and eager to help. Whichever house we would want to see, Kim and JB arranged the visit quickly. They were so pleasant and welcoming when we would meet. They let us take our time. If we wanted to see the house again, done! We found our forever home with them and they assisted us in selling our current home and moving into our new one! They were there every step of the way. We are very pleased with our new purchase and would highly recommend Allen Tate Realty, JB Lawrence and Kim Fox with your next new venture.
We received an offer on our home on the coast of North Carolina and wanted to relocate to the mountains. Our dream was a log cabin in a peaceful setting with a view. We were referred to JB and Kim to help us realize our dream They exceeded our expectations in every aspect. They were available, comunitive and took care of all the details for us. I would highly recommend JB and Kim to help you realize your dream.
We could not have asked for better realtors than Kim and JB to help us purchase our home. They walked with us every step of the way from mortgage to closing while doing their best to keep the stress level low for our family. They were also able to get us in our home before the arrival of our baby in June, and they accomplished all of this while dealing with a language barrier. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend them to be your realtors too!
I contacted Kim Fox of Allen Tate Realtors concerning selling 15 acres of mountain land that had been in an estate for 10 years.
I knew Kim was well respected as a realtor and researched her sales record accomplishments. Kim explained the legal process to complete prior to listing the property with Allen Tate Realtors.
The property was listed after taking over 6 months to complete the legal processes involving 20 heirs. Within weeks after listing the property, Kim helped negotiate a sales price that was 25% higher than other realtors suggested listing the property for.
I would work with Kim Fox & JB Lawrence in the future and highly recommend working with them.
I contacted Kim and JB to list a property I owned in Banner Elk, NC. From the listing paperwork through to the closing they patiently walked with me every step explaining each detail of the transaction. I never even had to leave my house! They so thoughtfully delivered every bit of the paperwork to me, including the proceeds check! Kim and JB’s service and professionalism were extraordinary, and I could not be any happier with the outcome of this transaction! Sue Gragg, Blowing Rock, NC

Team Lawrence & Fox with Allen Tate Realtors provided us with exceptional, timely
service throughout our process of buying a second home in the High Country. JB and
Kim were always responsive to our emails, text messages, and phone calls, and they
always strived to schedule showings based around our schedules (which was extremely
important considering that we live approximately two hours away). We would challenge
anyone to find a team of realtors easier to work with, and they will be our first choice if
we ever decide to sell or buy real estate again in the High Country.
Terry and Molly Berrier
Kim and JB,
I can't thank you enough for all your thoughtful ways of handling business. You are one for the books and will never be forgotten. All the best in business and life!! Bonnie
David and Cheri Flanagan
Kim and J.B. are amazing to work with! They were very knowledgeable and were willing to assist with any needs that arose. They were dedicated to us and the sale of our property. Kim and J.B. certainly go the extra mile to make sure their clients are taken care of. Our experience was great from start to finish! Without doubt, We would work with them again in the future and highly recommend them to you as well. If you are looking to sell your property, look no further, call Team Lawrence and Fox. They will not disappoint!
What a whirlwind our journey was and JB and Kim were right by our side the entire time. We began by taking a leap of faith and finally just going to a showing because we had been looking at properties for over a year. From the very first showing they were extremely knowledgeable about the property and gave us genuine suggestions. Once we looked at the first home, we were hooked and they were always a phone call away to walk a property or suggests other homes that might fit our needs. I cannot even remember the number of houses we looked at but when we walked into "the one" we knew and they were so helpful navigating us through the process.
JB and Kim helped me look and find my cabin. They were always there to answer any questions I had and I looked at a lot! Nice people to deal with. I would recommend their services.
