About Mountain Realty Builders

Mountain Realty Builders builds “green” homes in Asheville, NC and surrounding areas. We build both speculative homes (ones where the home is built before the customer is identified) and custom homes (where the customer contracts with us to build the home from scratch on land either of us owns).

The speculative homes we build are generally in West Asheville on infill lots that we have previously purchased. We completed in late 2008 a 5-home development on Logan Circle and are presently building out a 6-home development named Joyner Mews on Joyner Ave. Other development areas upcoming are on Sunrise Avenue as well as a few other lots scattered around the area. The homes are 1200-2200 square feet, some with finished basements, and are period Arts and Crafts homes consistent with the 1920’s neighborhoods in which they are built.

The owner of the company, Jim Hunter, obtained an MBA from Georgia State University in Atlanta,GA. and spent his early years in corporate America in both financial jobs and later in financial sales positions before becoming active in real estate fulltime. Jim has been renovating, building, buying, selling and leasing residential real state for 31 years. He has personally been involved in the renovation/restoration or building of more than 200 homes. He was also a commercial appraiser licensed in multiple states and is also a real estate broker in multiple states and sole owner and Broker-In-Charge of an affiliated real estate brokerage, Realty Financial Group, LLC (RFG).  Jim is a Licensed General Contractor in the State of North Carolina.
