Judy Wagner - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We had a great experience with Allan and Judy Wagner on our recent purchase of some vacant land in the mountains of Boone, North Carolina.

We have not met them in person yet, but they came highly reccomended by a couple of our most trusted friends that have a home in the same area. Allan and Judy immediately went out and started previewing properties for us, and when they found the perfect fit for us, they called me right away and told me this was a very special property, so we decided to purchase it just based on the pictures and their reccomendation. Truly an awesome couple to work with, and we can't wait to meet them in person in the next month or so, when we go up and see our land. We couldn't be more pleased!!

Steve and Melissa Bristol

Judy and Allan were wonderful – truly, truly gems in a sea of so-so agents.

I recently purchased an investment property in the High Country and wasn't super familiar with the nuances of the area. Allan and Judy were God-sends in that regard – they're experts of their craft and their decades of experience made my purchase process seamless. They listened to my wants/needs, laughed at all my jokes, and offered me the honesty and integrity that's so integral when purchasing a home from afar. I'll be going out of my way to recommend Judy and Allan to anyone looking for a home in the High Country. Even better, I can't wait to have them over for dinner once I'm all settled.

Christian Baker (Vice President, Special Projects)

Our home was on the market for such a short time I don't feel we got to personally know Judy as much as we would have liked.

She came to our house for the listing and staged with recommendations that was very satisfactory. The greatest thing (other than selling the house) was after each showing she would contact us with feedback from potential buyers. Once an agreement was reached Judy constantly kept us updated with every step in the process. Frankly, Judy made this as painless as possible and we couldn't conceive of using anyone other than her and her husband. They were so kind and trustworthy and an example for all realtors to follow. We can say this because in our 44 years of marriage we moved and/or transferred 13 times and, this was the best ever.

Leo & Gay Hill (Homeowners)

I highly recommend Judy and Allan.

They are knowledgeable, friendly, and very easy to work with. They are great at communicating on a timely and efficient manner. I am very pleased and grateful for doing business with them. I would not hesitate to call them for any real estate needs that I may have in the future.

Giovanni Llibre, MD, MBA (Chief Medical Officer)

Allan was fantastic to work with in my efforts to find a home in the mountains.

He was totally patient with me and my need to find just the right place that required looking at many places over several months. He is very knowledgeable of the most desirable areas. He helped me so much with all the details involved with purchasing a new home and getting everything done in spite of my living 3 hours away. Don’t know what I would have done without his help and expertise.

Brenda Newton (Policy Analyst -City of Raleigh)


They sold a piece of hard to sell property and continually provided updates and cogent advice. Without their expertise, I would still have the farm. I actually believe their advice resulted in about the most $ that I would have gotten from the sale. Very creative team.

Carroll B. Correll (Principle, Corstra)

The Wagners were great !

Allan handled all the details and marketed the property well. Everything went smoothly with no surprises.

Dale Dorsey

Judy and Allen are caring, responsive and extremely efficient.

They gave us great input to help improve our chances of selling and even looked after the house when we were away (this being our second home)

Kapil D Sethi (Profesor)

We highly recommend Judy & Alan for the sale of your home, they give 100%!

They went over and beyond what is expected from a realtor and I know this because my husband is a builder & has sold many homes.We we’re selling a very large new home and I was overwhelmed with all the details to make the house special, Judy offered to help & picked out light fixtures, wall colors, fans & so much more, they put a lot of time into it. They were always accessible, simply put the are amazing people!

Trish & Al Cabibbo

They were very friendly and knowledgable about properties in the area.

They were helpful to since I am not from the area. Enjoyed working with them.

Linda Glenn

Alan and Judy were a blessing to my family when my elderly mother was at the point that she could not live alone any longer in Banner Elk, NC.

They supported me both emotionally and professionally throughout the entire process. Judy had the home listed the day after moving all of her belongings to SC and had an offer within a week. The Wagners stayed in contact with me daily (sometimes multiple times) and handled everything so I could concentrate on my moms health and move to SC with me. You will not find more loving, caring people to help you through the process of buying or selling a home.

Carin Brazell

When my husband and I embarked on the search for a second home, we were blessed to cross paths with Judy and Allan Wagner.

Deciding to purchase a second home, and managing the process long distance can be a bit daunting. Judy and Allan really listened to what we were looking for, respected our budget constraints, and went the extra mile to help us make the most out of our home search. Their knowledge of the market, feedback on the features and quality of the homes we took interest in, and their heart felt enthusiasm for our pursuit let us know we were in the best hands possible. From start to finish, which I might add was only 3 months from first contact to closing, Judy and Allan held our hands long distance, and really went the extra mile to ensure a seamless process. From the time they helped us write up an offer, until the day we took possession of the keys at closing, we could not have had a better experience.

Robin Batts (Business Process Analyst - Deere & Co.)

It was such a pleasure working with Judy and Allan.

They stayed on top of everything and always responded quickly to any questions we had while purchasing our new home. They are very friendly and professional and will do an excellent job for all of their clients!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home.

Tammy Hopkins

Judy was recommended by a friend and we are so lucky to have gotten that recommendation!

She sent us listings prior to our trip to Boone so had a good idea of what we were looking for. When we did come down from Wisconsin it only took a day and a half to find the perfect home and we were able to move in a month later. We are so happy with our decision and having such experienced realators to help us throughout the whole process. Change whatever you need to and thanks so much again! Hope all is well with you.

Julie Hongisto (Client)

We worked with Judy and Allan for almost a full year to find our dream mountain house.

They were thoughtful, responsive, diligent and made us feel as though we were their only client. We discussed what we wanted in a mountain house, and they directed us to appropriate locations and homes. They know the market better than anyone and would keep us informed whenever a house hit the market that met our needs. They spent countless hours working with us remotely, as well as driving all over the region looking for the right home! They both know the Watauga area so well that it made us feel so comfortable asking for their honest advice on locations.Once we found our future home, they assisted in negotiating our deal, competing with 12 other offers. If you are looking for a mountain home, we truly cannot recommend Next Home Realty enough. You will be in GREAT hands!

Amanda Bonaviri

My wife and I greatly appreciated the help of Judy and Allan.

They were very transparent and honest in telling us about properties we viewed, and made helpful suggestions to guide us in the search. They also bent over backward to help us in the closing efforts. They became more than agents in the process...they became friends. I would highly recommend Judy and Allan for any real estate help you may need!

Art Wood (Sr VP)

As first-time home buyers, we found Judy & Alan very enjoyable to work with.

They're both very warm and personable, and Judy was terrific about keeping the line of communication open at all times. They were very patient and helpful as we worked through the process of finding the right fit for our family, and then sticking with us as we slogged through a somewhat lengthy and tedious closing process, as there were multiple owner/sellers involved. We highly recommend, especially if this is your first time diving into the world of Real Estate!

Justin & Joanna Arnold

Great experience!

The Wagners are the best realtors in town!

We had a wonderful experience working with Judy and Alan Wagner.

they were knowledgeable and helpful during each phase of our buying process. We highly recommend using them as a realtor.

Blaine and Anita Salley

Came to do business with Judy and Alan by chance.

Looked at one house they listed, and asked them to show us another house, which we bought. Her patient and forbearing handling of a difficult purchase helped us realize a life long dream of owning a house in Blowing Rock.She has a witty sense of humor that diffuses tense situations between buyers and sellers using a calm demeanor. We would absolutely work with the Wagner's again.

Glenn R SIgmon (Owner Piedmont Appliance Service, Charlotte, NC)

Allan and Judy are a powerhouse Real Estate couple.

Our group consisted of three families looking to purchase a second home and investment property. So to say our situation was unique is an understatement . Allan and Judy took the challenge and were so patient with us no matter how long it took. We are so thankful to them both for going the extra mile and guiding us through this long process, to make sure all our boxes were checked for the perfect home. We looked forward to making many memories together and we have Judy and Allan to thank for making it all happen. Kerry and Audra Pope

Audra Pope

Judy and Allan guided me through the sale of my home in Boone and the entire process could not have gone any smoother than it did in my case.

Every detail and question was handled in a professional manner and communication with both Judy and Allan was prompt and forthcoming. If I EVER need the services of a realtor again I will certainly 100% recommend the assistance of Judy and Allan Wagner. Marion A. Suitt

Marion Suitt

Judy is the consummate professional.

She cares for her clients and does everything she can to make their home buying experience easy and satisfying. I recommend her highly!

Anonymous (Mortgage Lender)

The same professionalism and insights into the Real Estate Market he used to sell a farm for me earlier in the year, he applied again.

This time his expertise was applied to buy a forever home for me. Thanks Wagner Team.

Carroll B. Correll (Principal, Corstra, LLC)

Extensive knowledge of the region and intricacies of the local market.

Incredibly responsive and caring. Highly recommend.

Todd Stincic

Judy and Allan were so caring and responsive throughout the process of buying the house.

They worked tirelessly with us and met us and our schedule each step of the way. They went above and beyond to keep everyone safe during the whole process in spite of the Covid virus. They did whatever it took to accommodate our needs. Allan is so calm and honest and makes you feel so safe as if he is your father negotiating for you. He doesn’t try to talk you into a property if it isn’t right for you. Judy is on top of everything and it doesn’t matter what time you send an email or text, she responds right back. They both have great tips and advice and a list of people who are able to help with inspections, repairs, utility questions and any other issue that could come up. I would highly recommend them and I promise you won’t be sorry you chose them to represent you. If you want an easy, seamless process, call Judy and Allan.

Carolyn Bost (Home buyer)

Judy and Allan Wagner are very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable real estate agents.

They are easy to work with and answered all of our questions promptly. Their expertise made the sale of our house smooth and uncomplicated. We highly recommend the Wagners, NextHome Mountain Realty! Worth & Tommye Mangum

Worth and Tommye Mangum

I had the opportunity to work with Judy and Allan Wagner on the purchase of our dream mountain property.

They made the purchasing process a breeze and pointed out how to get all the necessary survey and Perc tests lined up quickly. I will definitely use Judy and Allan again with our next purchase. They are a great team!

Joseph Nowak (Mountain Property Purchaser )

Alan and Judy were both wonderful throughout the entire process.

My wife and myself had countless questions, and they never got frustrated and were always helpful. They even answered emails at midnight just so that we would have the answers we needed as soon as we woke up the following morning. They did a fantastic job, and I would recommend them to anyone!

Judy & Allan are always easy to work with.

We have stayed with them throughout the years for multiple transactions. They provide good advice for buying and selling and I have even kept in touch for advice in between searches and listings.


Excellent Realtor!

Knows her market well and is a pleasure to deal with. Very kind and patient.

Kip Cullimore

I have been working with the Wagners for many years and they are excellent realtors!

Their clients are well informed and they are always prepared for the many moving parts of a real estate transaction. They really care about their clients and have years of experience, so any buyer would be lucky to have them on their side!!

Christopher Arquette (Owner of Mountaineer Mortgages, LLC)

It is always a pleasure working with Judy and Allan Wagner.

They are a great team - always professional and prompt in getting information for you. Our purchase of a building lot was seamless and we very much appreciate their knowledge of the area. Allan’s dad was one of the first realtor’s in the Boone area so Allan has been around the real estate business all his life. Judy is a real asset to him and they both bring knowledge and integrity to every transaction. They are just great people to work with!

Adam Hege (Professor of Public Health, App. State)

Enjoyed working with Judy and Allen Wagner as they made home buying a very pleasant experience.

Very knowledgeable of the real estate market and their experience shows in how they conduct their business. Very efficient, very responsive to questions, information and communication. Both Judy and Allen are invested in helping you. Genuinely kind, caring folks that we would not hesitate to use again should the need arise.

Margaret Lualdi

Judy and Allen are very professional, know their market very well.

Always kept me informed on showings and gave feedback. Worked with contractors to get access to the house and did what had to get done. I would use Judy and Allen again and recommend to anyone. Gene Donato

Gene Donato

Judy and Allan, are a pleasure to work with.

We are coming from Florida and they were so helpful in finding us just what we were looking for and walking us through the process of buying land. Very professional, and knowledgeable!!

Melissa Bristol

After selling our Florida home of 30 years, we were suddenly thrown into the market of buying a new home.

We wanted to relocate in the Boone area and we called our dear friend, Judy for help! She listened to our requests, researched properties in our price range and scheduled appointments to view the properties. Since we only had 2 days to view properties, she was very efficient in making the most of our time. She was available to us 24/7 to answer any questions or calm any worries we might have. We found the perfect property and she made the whole process of buying our cabin stress free. She handled all the details and all the little things you don't think of to help make this transition go smoothly. We are so grateful to Judy for all the time and energy she put into helping us find the perfect place! We knew by the way she took care of us that she is passionate about what she does and she genuinely wants the best for her clients.

Jim & Diane Woelfel

Judy and Allan are so great to work with!

! They are very professional, fabulous communication, and hard working!! You can't go wrong with them!!

Emily Hall

Judy and Allan Wagner were very easy to work with.

They are very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable real estate agents who answered all of our questions promptly. We highly recommend them.

Nancy Luhrs

We had been privately looking for homes in the High Country for several years before being referred to Judy and Allan Wagner at Next Home Mountain Realty.

As buyers in an amped up market fueled by Covid-19 campers, we had no idea what we were in for. Thankfully Judy and Allan were there for us. From the beginning, Team Wagner made the buying experience easy. Their ability to schedule appointments quickly (we are talking anywhere between 15 minutes up to one day) was incredible. Having a lifetime of knowledge of the area was also helpful when suggesting alternative properties – they knew what we wanted, delivered solid comps and a brought a logical ability to provide pros & cons of certain locations or Allen’s experience as a former builder in regard to the condition of structures. We felt like we were talking with family. When it came to finding quality inspectors, attorneys, surveyors, septic or repair contractors they had deep lists of providers for us to reach out to. Making our experience even easier, Judy and Allan made themselves available to the aforementioned service providers if we could not make the scheduled appointment. When our lender had issues with one of his contractors, we knew the seller’s realtor was kept in the loop and talked off a cliff several times. They salvaged a situation that many sellers could have walked away from. Personally, we feel a connection Judy and Allan and look forward to being able to enjoy a meal on our deck when life becomes less contagious. Speaking of contagious, we never saw Judy or Allan’s smiles or hands – yes they are respectful of everyone’s safety by choosing to wear a mask and gloves. Would we utilize Next Home Mountain Realty again – YES.

Keith Alexander (Sire)

Judy and Allan were excellent I would highly recommend

Michael Gray Parnell

We walked in off the street into a real estate office in Boone, NC and we're so fortunate that Judy Wagner was in the office that day.

That encounter started, not only, an eight year professional relationship but a wonderful friendship as well. Her knowledge of the area and the local real estate market were second to none. Our meeting eventually lead to the purchase of a brand new condo for my out of state college children and then ulitimately the sale of that same condo eight years later. Having her represent us both as a buyer's and seller's agent made our real estate experience simple and painless. Judy's experience, professionalism and dedication to her clients makes her an agent I would highly recommend. Liz B (Weston,FL).

LIZ Behrens

I have worked with Judy and Allan both as a buyer and a seller and I could not be more pleased with their hard work and professionalism.

They are truly 5 star.

Chuck Blanton (Retired)

While our initial contact with Judy and Allan was chance, our decision to sign them as our realtors was very intentional.

Their team approach was a perfect match for us. We quickly developed a very comfortable relationship characterized by mutual trust and respect that continued throughout the selling our second home in Blowing Rock. As an Accredited Home Stager, Judy's talent and skills were immediately obvious. She provided us advice about furniture to remove to "declutter" and furniture arrangement to best display each room. In addition, Judy made recommendations about new paint colors and landscaping that truly enhanced the exterior. When the house didn't sell as quickly as we all expected, Judy suggested creative incentives. And because we were out-of-town sellers, Judy and Allan sometimes went beyond the call of duty such as checking on the house after extreme cold temps. Judy and Allan were very accessible and communication was frequent. We are very appreciative of their expertise, professionalism, patience, determination, and most of all, their passion for their work.

Danny & Brenda Dennis


and Mrs. Wagner were the perfect couple for us to work with on both the purchase of our beautiful home and the sale of that home. They were very knowledgeable patient and diligent in their work. They walked us through the entire process step-by-step. We never felt intimidated or left out of the process. I hope they will still be real estate agents when we are ready to make our next purchase in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.

Pamela James (Insurance Agent )

I would most certainly recommend Judy and Allan.

They are professional,attentive and very easy to work with. Based on the great experience I had, I would not hesitate to ask for their help in future real estate transactions.

Allen Hefner

Judy and Allan were amazing to work with.

I had a sincerely difficult time finding realtors in the area who would return a phone call/e-mail, or frankly display competence if they did so. Judy and Allan were incredibly helpful in finding the perfect property for me, and they were more than kind and communicative throughout. I only wish I had found them sooner. I 100% recommend them.

Christopher Baker

Judy and Allan are Amazing and professional Realtors.

They were honest about what needed to be done and the price point we needed to be at. We meet them when we bought our house and went right back to them when we were ready to sell. Truly the best agents in town. Their advice is priceless!


Allan and Judy Wagner have been our Realtors for several years.

They have guided us through two real estate transactions with such professionalism and dedication that we would never consider engaging with any other team. They are a full-service team, focusing on all aspects of the transaction from showings to purchase and listings to sale. After years in the business their knowledge of both sides of a transaction provides clients with the ability to make informed decisions. They are reputable and honest which is why they have a loyal client base. We will never work with anyone else!

Sueanne Myers (Manager)

We were very pleased with the service provided by Judy and Allan.

We felt that they gave our listing of a small vacation home the same level of attention as a larger listing. Judy and Allan have a good knowledge of their market and had good ideas for photographing and showing our home. They were also very responsive to our questions and kept us well informed throughout the entire process from listing through closing. We highly recommend Judy and Allan for your real estate needs!

Ora & Everett Escott

First of all they met with my wife and I on a Saturday morning and showed us about 6 properties.

None of them seemed to be right for us. Judy suggested a new subdivision that was in the area we wanted. We selected a lot and then called back several days later to cancel. We then reconsidered and wanted to purchase it. She was patient and kind thru the entire process. She went and took photos of the house while it was under construction (we live 2 hours away). She stayed in contact with the builder and the bank as we prepared for closing. She walked thru the property with us before closing and helped answer every question we had.

Ronnie James (Regional Sales Director)

Judy and Allan did a wonderful job from day one to closing the sale of our property and home in Boone, NC.

NextHome went well over and beyond our expectations. I would refer NextHome to anyone.

Rickey Price

I can't say enough about Judy and Allan Wagner.

Their company, Next home Mountain Realty, was recommended to us by a neighbor to help with the sale of our mother's summer residence in Boone, NC. We could not have found a more informed and helpful company to work with. If we had questions on anything concerning the sale, they were there to answer them. They advised us as to what we needed to do to and had information available for us to select appraisers, inspectors etc. and knew the regulations needed for Watauga County. Any questions we had were answered promptly, and they were available to talk with you any time you needed them. Our Mother's home was sold recently. Should we ever have property to sell in Watauga County again, Judy and Allan will be the realtors that we will contact. They are true professionals and we would highy recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent realtor.

Lana Craig (Client)

Judy and Allan are a great team.

They helped us purchase a home in Boone. We were 3 families, all in different cities, looking for an investment property that we could rent and enjoy in the Boone area. It was not easy. But they quickly homed in on what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect place for us. Their knowledge of the area, experience in buying and selling during this crazy time and their connections to a host of service providers in the area is unmatched. They were honest, gave great counsel and I would use them again in a second.
