About Blue Realty

Blue Realty is a boutique real estate agency, specializing in luxury homes and real estate in Western North Carolina.

You could say that co-founder and real estate guru David Huffman has real estate in his blood. Literally. It runs in the family. As a broker, he has decades of experience all over the country and has closed sales in every luxury community throughout WNC. Those experiences provide the Blue Realty team the in-depth knowledge of all the local properties to better inform buyers about their unique characteristics. By working with all of the communities in the Asheville area and surrounding towns like Hendersonville and Waynesville, Blue Realty is equipped to find the perfect fit for their buyers. We work diligently to provide the most up-to-date information and comprehensive buyer resources to facilitate your home-buying experience.

Real estate developers, luxury communities, and individual sellers also trust Blue Realty to market and sell their property because they know that we have the Blue Formula – a combination of in-house, digital, and cutting-edge creatives and the expertise of natural salespeople who have adapted to the changing world of real estate. We provide seller resources that no other agency in the area can.

Our experience and passion for the mountain areas in Western North Carolina is contagious and shines through in our work.

David Huffman


“Real estate sales is in my blood. Literally. It runs in the family. My father enjoyed a successful career helping others find their lifelong dreams on the NC coast. With Pop’s wisdom and an East Carolina University Marketing degree in hand, I began my journey. Sales have always been my calling and career path for as long as I can remember. And I love every minute of it.”

David began his career as a broker through the Governor’s Club, an upscale on-site development firm in Chapel Hill. His natural-born sales ability got him noticed quickly, and he won Rookie of the Year. Since that fateful first year, David has worked under mentors and giants in the industry from North Carolina to Florida. Now he gives back by training and mentoring his own proteges. He has ambitious plans for Blue Realty, but he still focuses on one client at a time. Today David enjoys the mountain life in Sylva, NC, where he lives with his daughter and son and their two dogs Splash and Arfie.

David embraces new technology to reach more buyers and sellers. His keen intuition combined with his 26 years of extensive experience allows him to anticipate and navigate the ever-changing world of real estate. That’s why in 2015 he and creative partner Chris Cassels decided to launch Blue Branding and Marketing and Blue Realty, a boutique agency which helps buyers, sellers, brokers, developers and builders market, sale and buy more real estate, homes and land. When David walks the land, he soaks it in and wears it – like a chameleon – camouflaged by his connection to the land. That’s why we call him the Land Whisperer and, however metaphysical the process, David’s ability to translate what he hears into a visceral narrative transcends the language of mere sales: it’s a benediction. The result is written on both the land and the ledger; the most successful properties in the southeast bear his distinctive imprimatur in the satisfaction of all parties to a transaction: the buyer, the builder, the land, and the dream.

“Most likely I’ve already walked the land you want to see. For professional service and my undivided attention contact me today at”
