They are very professional, incredibly accommodating, and remarkably warm and friendly! I will recommend this team to all my friends and family members seeking to purchase or sell a home!

Lia is in a class by herself.
Lia is in a class by herself. I found her to be very skilled in her interactions with people even in potentially contentious situations, and her ethics are beyond reproach. In addition, she was a pleasure to interact with and is shrewd in an honest way that inspires faith that she will represent your interests to an unusual degree. Summary: I like her and trust her and have great faith in her skills and knowledge.

Agent:

Lia has become our friend
Imagine having a daughter graduate from college, a son getting married, selling your home after 12 years and moving halfway across the United States...all in under 90 days! That is what we faced and we needed a Realtor that we could trust and could get us through the buying process! Thank God for Lia! She immediately earned our trust and put us at ease. She took the time to listen to our needs and understand what we were going through, She knew our time was limited and she didn't waste any of our time. She is an expert on the area and answered all of our questions. We looked forward to being with her because she makes it fun! She organized our day so that we were not overwhelmed. She provided just the right amount of information so that we could make the right decision and never pushed her own agenda. I respect her integrity and professionalism. Lia has become our friend and I would highly recommend her to anyone transitioning to the Raleigh area.

I am grateful to Lia Watson for being such a fun and reliable partner...I am grateful to Lia Watson for being such a fun and reliable partner...


I worked with Lia Watson on my home purchase. Lia was tireless, showing me so many houses, over several months, but still advising me to be patient and wait for the right purchase. As a single adult, I appreciated Lia as a sounding board for all my thoughts and opinions as we viewed candidates for what would be my new home. I found the perfect house earlier this month and am so glad that I waited! There were multiple offers on the property, but Lia was able keep my offer on top of the pile, and I will be closingtomorrow! I am so excited about my new home, and am grateful to Lia Watson for being such a fun and reliable partner in the journey.

Couldn't have been a better experience!

My husband and I had a “couldn't have possibly been better" experience with our Realtor Lia Watson!! We spent many busy weekends, countless emails, texts, and phone calls communicating with Lia during our journey of finding a new home in North Carolina. Lia took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for and who we are as a couple. We trusted her with ideas and options within the first week of meeting her. Not only did we find the perfect home in a fabulous area, but we made a friend. She went above and beyond as a support in some difficult situations as well as being available for us when needed on short notice. Lia is very knowledgeable of the area and was a huge help in finding everything that we were looking for in a new city! We had a blast spending time with her, and grew sad when we finally picked our home (knowing that our time with Lia was coming to an end). Lia has professional and personal experience working with relocation, which made our experience with her a breeze. The anxiety of moving to a new area was much less, due to working with such an expert. We would recommend Lia to anyone in the area looking for a great team to help guide them in the right direction to find a future home!! Thanks Lia!!

Marti and her team Marti and her team "Team Marti" is the best!
Marti and her team "Team Marti" is the best! There was a lot that I had to go through to get my house sold - renovations, enhancements, staging, bases to cover and all of this after already having been relocated to a different part of the country. Marti and her team were truly my "boots on the ground". There was a relentless commitment to excellence and this continued right up until closing which was not straightforward but in the end we got it done. I truly don't think I would have ever gotten my house sold without Marti and she earned her fee many times over.

Marti's team was a great assetMarti's team was a great asset
My wife and I recently sold our house and brought another house utilizing Marti Hampton REMAX office. We were extremely delight with the level of service provided by Marti and her team in helping us through this process. They were especially conscious of our needs (with two young kids) and accommodated all our requests. Marti was really good at helping us in identifying the price point to sell our house and in negotiating our final price to our satisfaction. Special mention should be made of her selling team personnel who assisted us in this tough process - Marti, Franklin, Martha, Erica, Mary and Michaela. Susan Brown was our realtor from Marti's office who assisted us with our Buying process. She was very knowledgeable, prompt and patient in helping us identify the house we are going to call our home in the future. We were extremely satisfied and happy to have her as our agent. Barbara Kingston was our closing specialist from Marti's office who helped us negotiate smoothly through the lengthy closing process. She was very accommodating to our needs in having to change our closing time a couple of times and was very timely in helping the dialogue going between the attorney and the lender. She was also helpful with getting all the required inspections done in a timely manner.

Marti's team was a great asset for us in the entire selling/buying process and I would highly recommend their team to anyone trying to sell or buy.

Agent: Naomi Rodrigues

LOVE them all!!LOVE them all!!
My husband and I interviewed 4 different realtors before deciding on who we wanted to use to sell our house. We had just gotten married and were looking to use the same agency to sell our home as well as help us find a new home (our first home together as a married couple). After meeting with Marti and her team we knew that there was no competition. What we got after making that decision, was more than we could have ever dreamed. The entire process was extremely smooth. Our home sold within two days and a week later we found our dream home. Three weeks later, on the same day we closed on both homes!! The quick turn around of everything was both what we had hoped for but also a surprise. I know that we could not have done it all (and stress free) without such a polished, professional, AND friendly team. LOVE them all!!

Agent: Marti Hampton

She sure made believers out of us!She sure made believers out of us!
Our agent, Heather Losurdo, assured us our house would sell immediately. She sure made believers out of us! We had 4 offers the first day, and wound up in a bidding war. That certainly worked out well for us. We found our downsized townhome as well, and are now happily ensconced in our next lifestyle. Many thanks to Barbara Kingston on our "buying side" for her assistance in completing this sale. Also to Franklin Currin on our "selling side" for his patience in dealing with our never ending questions.

"Thank you for recommending him on your website!"
Hi Marti - I just wanted to take a few minutes and let you know about the outstanding service I received from Kevin leading up to and at closing on May 29th. I really appreciated the way he listened to my concerns and took the time to educate me on the various important aspects of the transaction. Thank you for recommending him on your website.

So glad to be working with your team!So glad to be working with your team!
~~Hi Marti -
My husband Joe and I recently listed with your team and I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how happy we are that we did. The difference between Naomi and our previous realtor is night and day. Through Naomi, we began working with Martha as well, and what a pleasure, and relief!, it has been. It was not easy scheduling the pictures to be taken of our house, but Martha continually jumped through hoops and never made me feel like it was an issue or that I was causing her extra work (which I know I was). She's been on top of everything and stayed in touch with me and communicated every step of the way. So I wanted to say thank you, and the best way I know how is by letting you know what a fantastic job she's doing. So glad to be working with your team.

Agent: Naomi Rodrigues

I have a house that I completely LOVE!!! Thank you...!!
Jacquelyn was absolutely amazing throughout the entire home buying process! She listened to each of the factors I wanted in a home, and made sure each property we looked at fit the criteria. I was completely thrilled, when at her suggestion, the limits of those criteria were pushed and stretched. Jacquelyn was able to assimilate all of the information I gave her and identify not only the perfect neighborhood for me, but also the specific house (from those available on the market) that she knew I would love. Jacquelyn was always encouraging and never pushed her opinion on me, but always provided feedback and insight when considering different attributes of a home, especially considerations like resale, short vs. long term costs and appreciation, and scale of repairs and improvements. Jacquelyn is highly knowledgeable about the Triangle home market and I highly recommend her to anyone, and would be more than happy to be a reference. The result from working with Jacquelyn has been transformative. AND I have a house that I completely LOVE!!! Thank you Jacquelyn!!

"Choosing Marti Hampton and her team was the best decision we could have made."
To our fabulous team:

Matt and I cannot thank you enough for all of the work you've done to help bring us to this day; both buying and selling! It has been an extremely quick process but for the most part a seamless one. We appreciate the sense of urgency provided by each of you, the attention to detail, and the constant updates that have provided an important level of trust and comfort. I should probably also thank you for your patience through my overwhelming amount of phone calls and texts :)

Choosing Marti Hampton and her team was the best decision we could have made. We are very excited for 1 pm to get here and count it a blessing to have you all on our side through these final steps. Thank you for everything

"I would recommend her to anyone...without a doubt."
Our not at all easy Raleigh area house hunt was absolutely a pleasure because we found the wonderful Susan Brown to work with. From the very first email, with a quite lengthy list of demands, she has been nothing short of a miracle worker. During our search she was attentive to our likes and dislikes, very knowledgable about the neighborhoods and areas we were looking in and really very supportive throughout. I think she figured out what we were looking for before we did. When we finally found THE house the process was very smooth as she coached us through the negotiation of contract all the way to settlement. Working with Susan during our house hunt was like working with a friend. She put in countless hours sending us listings, taking us on viewings, and always responding to late night emails. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in the Raleigh area without a doubt.

Agent:

"You are lucky to have her..."!
Marti,

Just wanted to let you know how exceptional Susan Brown has been to work with in our home purchase. She did a wonderful job of producing a set of listings that were exactly what we were looking for. She arranged showings for us on short notice, sometimes late in the day to match our work schedule. She drove through driving torrential downpours and did a good job planning routes to minimize drive time. She listened and was attentive to our needs and provided honest and open feedback on concerns on some of the homes (rather than just trying to get a quick commission; she wanted to make sure that it really was 'the right' home for us). She worked hard to negotiate the best possible price for us with the owners of the home that we made the offer on (even if that meant potentially a little less commission for her). My wife notes that she has an amazing memory for detail and followed up promptly with any questions or concerns that we had on a listing (she followed up within an hour on convenant restrictions, HOA information, lot information, etc. sometimes late at night). She worked late into Friday night (9:00) on a holiday weekend to close the deal. She is honest, a hard worker, an excellent negotiator and a tremendous asset to your realty team!


You are lucky to have her and I hope that you will recognize and convey our deep appreciation to her!

We are hoping that our townhome selling agent has this level of motivation. commitment, and dedication in selling our townhome, so that we know we are in good hands!

Kind regards,

"...making it all happen...in record time"
Hi Kevin. I just want to thank you and your team for making it all happen for my son...AND in record time I am sure. You all jumped on this so fast and helped us out to allow him to purchase his home when Coastal Federal Credit Union could not help us. I spoke with the President of Coastal Federal Credit Union about all the issues we had with them in trying to close a deal with them. At the end of the call he said he would close the loan with us! I told him - too late! I let him know that in just two days after my last email with his team, I had another institution that already had us taken care of and that was you and your team. I will be sure to pass along your name to others that need help when others banking institutions can't or wont help good people out. Thanks again Kevin. Jim (Dad) Bould

"...she continues to exceed our expectations..."

Marti,

We want to share our delight in working with your team member & Buyer's Agent, Lia Watson. In all aspects of this journey, she continues to exceed our expectations.

Before selling our home & starting our quest for another, Lia introduced herself. She qualified particulars we expected in our new home, explored establishing / refining detailed searches, & reviewed her initial evaluation of properties in order to focus our search on those with the most promise. By carefully monitoring & advising us on select opportunities she has been very effective in managing our expectations.

Lia demonstrates incredible sensitivity in customer service & remarkable flexibility managing her / our schedule, & is always responsive with exceptional professionalism. As the "buyer's advocate" she offers encouragement & optimism along with reality checks that keep us grounded.

Lia's knowledge / awareness of the market along with her experience as a Broker make her an outstanding representative of Marti's Team!

We greatly appreciate Lia leading our search!

Thanks!

We love our new home!

My husband and I just recently bought our first house with the help of the Marti Hampton team. Our buyers agent, Susan Rosero, and our closing coordinator, Barbara Kingston, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout the home buying process. I ha ve so many good things to say about them. Susan was patient and honest as we looked at many, many homes and never put undue pressure on us to buy. She made herself very available when it came to looking at houses, many times working on weekdays and weekends. She always responded to emails quickly so that we never missed out on a opportunity. We really had the sense that she had our best interests at heart with all of her recommendations. During the closing process, Susan and Barbara were relentless in their efforts to make sure everything went smoothly; these efforts included making appointments for inspections and surveys, working with the seller to negotiate contracts and repairs, and giving us advice when the inevitable problems popped up.

Sincerely,

Andrew and Brittnay

We Just Sold our Town Home & Purchased our Dream HomeWe Just Sold our Town Home & Purchased our Dream Home
When my husband and I decided to sell our town home and pursue our dream home, I knew I would need the best real estate agent team by our side. We chose Marti Hampton & her team with RE/MAX One Realty, as we had only heard great things about her and her team. I knew we were in good hands but we were really blown away by the professionalism and support we received from her and her staff. Working with Jan on the selling side was a pleasure. She was on top of any issue we encountered and really helped us all the way thru. On the buying side we worked with Lia and from the start she was completely devoted to me and my husband. Lia was amazing at negotiating us a great deal and always moved things aside to work around what we could do and it was extremely convenient for us. Besides her level of devotion, she was also very prepared and responsive all of the time, even for situations that could and did go wrong. She was simply amazing and we are so happy we made the choice to go with Marti Hampton's office. I would highly recommend them to all of my friends.

Thanks again for everything

"She was a true friend from beginning to end"
I recently had the good fortune of having team Marti work for me. Since I was relocating, I had limited knowledge of Raleigh's neighborhoods and its real estate firms. The very first impression this agency made on me is that they answered the phone the first time I called, answered all of my questions, and had an agent available on my schedule. I was lucky enough to work with Susan Brown. To make a long story short, she showed me A LOT of houses over the course of about 6 weeks. Throughout that time, she was extremely attentive to all aspects of my ever-evolving requirements. When we finally found the perfect house, she made sure that I got that house. She was amazing throughout the negotiation and diligence process. Having Susan working for me not only greatly reduced the stress of my relocation, but she added a lot of fun to the process as well. She was a true friend from beginning to end.

Wonderful Buying Experience with Lia Watson & the Marti Hampton Team!Wonderful Buying Experience with Lia Watson & the Marti Hampton Team!
Lia,

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and new year celebration!

I would like to take a few minutes to give you a quick review of my experience in working with you and the Marti Hampton Team.

Firstly, I was very pleased with the initial setup and explanation of the basics of home buying. As a first time home buyer, my main concern was that someone would attempt to "pull the wool over my eyes" or "get one over on me" but after our first meeting I realized my worries were in vain. The process could not have been easier. I was immediately shown houses within my price range in the areas that I specified and I was told the normal progression of events from the onset.

Secondly, after finding a house that checked the majority of my boxes, I was walked through the standard home buying process and was informed of every change no matter how small the detail may have seemed. I truly felt throughout the experience that the entire Marti Hampton team was working with my best interest in mind 100% of the time. I would recommend Lia Watson, Barbara Kingston, and the entire Marti Hampton team to anyone who considers a first time home purchase. Through the combined efforts of several hard working real estate experts, my experience was nothing short of warm, enlightening and easy-going. I will continue to praise the Marti Hampton team and I look forward to future purchases utilizing this helpful local resource.

Best Wishes,

Eddie

"Lia was great to work with!"
Lia was great to work with! When I first started looking she asked what I would like and what my pre-approval amount from the bank was. She found several great homes for me to look at that were all within exactly what I asked to see. Lia was able to work with me around my difficult schedule and was able to show me homes late in the evening and on Sundays. When I found the home I eventually purchased she was very helpful in letting me know what offer was reasonable and recommended a great inspection company. Once my offer was accepted Lia checked in with me often and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole process. When it is time to locate in the future, I will be sure to call Lia Watson!

Agent:

Thank you so much!Thank you so much!
Marti,

You are one of a kind - & we do mean the best!!! We are over the moon delighted that we are working with you & your team! Like you - Lia could not be any better! We love working with her!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Thanks again!

"...she made the process painless..."
Denni was so great to work with! As someone who hates moving, she made the process painless. Beginning with advising me on the right offer to put in (it was accepted right away), to which repairs to ask for after inspection (and made sure they got completed on time), to making sure we closed without any major hiccups, Denni was there throughout the process to guide us. Not only did she get us a great deal and represent us well, but she provided comforting words and advise during the whole process, easing our stress and lessening the mental and emotional burden that naturally comes with selling and purchasing a new home simultaneously. Having chosen different agents to buy and sell our homes, there was just no comparison in the quality of work provided by Denni Haywood and ReMax, and I wouldn't even consider listing my house with anyone else when it comes time to sell....If we ever do sell, because we love the house you helped to get us in!

5 STARS TO THE MARTI HAMPTON TEAM!

Marti and her team are the most professional and caring group of realtors with whom I have had the pleasure of working. In the most difficult time of my life, they offered support and encouragement.

I could not imagine a smoother buying process. Being a first time buyer, working with Lia made purchasing a home a breeze!

Needless to say, I will be going back to Lia Watson and the Marti Hampton team for all of my real estate needs.

~~Dear Marti,

We wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for the selling of our house. You are wonderful to work with and your team is amazing, as well. We appreciate your professionalism and organization. From the moment we started the process, I knew we were in good hands and we were confident that our house would sell with you. We especially appreciate all of the support from Jan as we worked to get the final details of closing taken care of. She always kept us updated with what was going on and we always felt like everything was being taken care of-which was extremely reassuring being that we live out of state now. We are settled in Columbus, Ohio in an apartment for now and can't wait to begin saving for a new home. Thank you again for making the sale of our house happen in a timely manner! Best wishes to you in the future!

We can't say enough great things about Marti's team...We can't say enough great things about Marti's team...
We can't say enough great things about Marti's team. You will be introduced to several different team members along your selling journey, and it's for good reason. Each member is an expert at what they do, and together they get your house sold quickly, and keep you informed of any and all information every step of they way. We had our house on the market with another agency a few years ago, and unfortunately had very little showings, and no success with selling our home. We took it off the market to start a family, and was apprehensive about trying to sell again, but we couldn't of imagined a better or easier experience. We had our house on the market only 3 weeks, and had about 15 showings, and ended up having two great offers on our home to choose from. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to sell their home quickly!!

Thank you Daphne Burris for your excellent recommendation!
Good evening, Daphne and Marti: Tonight we write to you regarding our experience using the Local Moving company recommended by Daphne Burris. Specifically, Crabtree Family Moving. Note that we believe that there is tremendous power and obligation when an individual refers a service company to a client / friend / neighbor. We can run the chance of harming our credibility and reputation if things do not go well, correct? In this case Daphne Burris hit a Home Run!

Cliff Crabtree is personable, honest to a fault and a man of his word. His quote was fair and very competitive, putting one other local mover to absolute shame with their quote being 35% higher! We could not have had a finer work crew arrive at our home on June 27, 2013. They were polite, pleasant and clean. They worked well together and were very organized in their approach to loading the truck. Any very minor issues we had were addressed immediately to our satisfaction as well. We realize you keep a list of Marti's "Preferred" Resources - we certainly urge you to ADD / KEEP Crabtree Family Moving on that list! With our sincerest thanks to Daphne for the referral and Cliff Crabtree for a job well done!

Words truly cannot express how our lives have changed...
Dear Marti Hampton,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for assisting me to find my new home. Heather Losurdo worked very hard to make my dream a reality. I first met Heather about 10 months ago when she showed me the first house. Although it took me a while to find the perfect house, Heather was so patient and helpful with each showing. Heather had faith in me...and fought many, many, many obstacles to make sure my dream came true. Heather kept telling me that in a month I would look back and smile. She told me that it would all work out. I didn’t believe it, but here I am one month later SMILING. I am a very happy homeowner thanks to Heather... I know that your company is very successful with many clients. Certainly my one purchase makes a very small impact but it is important for me to let you know that [Heather has] made such an impact on my life and my son’s life. Words truly cannot express how our lives have changed. I know that a house and a home can be 2 different things but in this case we all finally feel at home in our new house. Your team has truly gone way beyond the extra mile in my case. From the bottoms of our hearts, we all appreciate and thank you for making this beautiful house our happy home.

Kind regards,

Linda Phillippy

Thank you!
Marti,

Just a quick note to thank you and espicially Franklin and Eric for making the sale of my home a stress-free endeavor. I live in Virginia and travel internationally for work, so I was initially pretty stressed out about trying to get the house ready and sale accomplished. Eric was my POC for getting the house ready to sell and established the marketing strategy. He helped me with coordinating several vendors to get the house cleaned up and the landscape in order. Franklin followed Eric and helped me get the closing completed.

Both of these gentlemen stayed in communication with me on a regular and consistent basis. They always made time to answer any questions I had. Their professionalism, attention to detail and dilligience in all areas, seriously made a positive difference on my sales experience. They certainly strengthen your team.

Sincerely,
Michael Cannon

Your whole team was great...Your whole team was great...
Marti, thanks for selling our home,your whole team was great,but I would like to single out Jan Tomlinson. She probably saved our contract on several occasions by sticking with the roadblocks and problems created by an inept and probably unlicensed or uneducated mortgage brokerage by the name of *********************.They should be investigated by the Real Estate Board. Thank goodness We had Jan Tomlinson. She took them to cleaners on every mistake they made and double checked to make sure they corrected it. Thanks for having her....

"...your excellent agent"
Hello Ms. Hampton,

We just spent the last 2 days working with your agent Susan Rosero and we had to tell you how wonderful she was! We drove from New York and met Susan at the office, she got us right out to see homes her and I had worked on through emailing. She listened, does her homework, she had plenty lined up to see and has a great easy mannered way about her.

She drove us around and found every house easily, all the while helping us get to know the area. She is not intrusive with her thoughts, not too chatty but informative and put us at ease. If she didn't know the answer to something, she found it out and got back to me. She looked into a few properties before we even saw them when she spotted a possible issue. She answered my many emails promptly and respectfully.

We so appreciate Susan's style and if this indeed becomes our new home, we will work with her to find the right one for us. We are looking into another part of North Carolina right now but loved what we saw here in Raleigh, and working with Susan. I thought you should know about our experience and your excellent agent.

Many thanks,

Carol and Phil

If cash weren't a consideration I'd leave the listing active. You guys have shown the house many more times than previous agents and have earned my respect and endorsement. I hope that we can work together again at some point. Thanks again!

Thanks Lydia and Brent to you both for your assistance and patience as I explored this. I appreciate you!"

"Keep up the good work!"
Hello,


We are busy getting things staged, cleaned, repaired and ready. I plan to send the forms that have been filled tomorrow or Friday and have the key in the lockbox by Friday. We go on vacation this weekend and when we return we hope to finish everything up by the following weekend or so. I will let you know when we are ready for pictures and showings. If there is anything else we need to know or do please let us know. We should be good to go within the next two weeks. We really hope things go well and our house shows well and sells soon. Thankyou for your prompt attention to us and your help. We feel like this team keeps on top of things and we appreciate that so much. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for helping my Son sell his home
Marti,

This week my son Matt is closing on his dream home that your agent Daphne helped him find! You were able to sell his previous home in 1 day! Thank you so much for taking such good care of my family!

You are an amazing, talented and accomplished woman whom I highly respect, but all that aside, you are an EXCELLENT realtor. I have felt like that since you sold my home on Abbotsbury and I tell anyone I meet as much.

Just had to share this with you...
Marti,

I stopped by my friend's wine store just to say hello to (name withheld). I knew he planned on selling his wine store and his home in a couple of years to buy a Catamaran and run his own business in the BVIs (I hope to be his first customer!). What I didn't realize was that he moved up his plans. He listed his house in the last week or so.

So this is what occurred to me. Crap. I wish Marti and I had gone for wine when we planned and Marti would be selling Tony's house. But my thought wasn't that you would get the commission (sorry about that). My thought was that Tony missed out on having the best realtor in Raleigh. I am not kidding. That was the first thought that popped into my head. That is how strongly I respect your work. I thought I should share that with you.

You are an amazing, talented and accomplished woman whom I highly respect, but all that aside, you are an EXCELLENT realtor. I have felt like that since you sold my home on Abbotsbury and I tell anyone I meet as much.

This Thursday Matt is buying his dream home. Your company sold his previous house in 1 day. I am ecstatic and I thank you for your excellent service (again and again and again).

Great testimonial (and a referral)!!!
Hi Marti,


Thank you for getting my house sold so quickly. I will be starting my new job in Southport in July and I just accepted an offer on my house in TX. New beginnings here I come!


The friend who's house where I've been staying is ready to put her house on the market. She is living in MN and wanted me to set up an appt. for you to come by and see if you would like to handle the listing.


Again, many thanks!

Dear Marti,


I cannot even begin to tell you how much I appreciate you selling my home. Your graciousness is just immeasurable. It is another step forward for me and a great weight off my shoulder.
I will be forever grateful to you and you will always come highly recommended by me. Again, thank you so very much.

Sincerely,

My son and his wife sold their first home several years ago. They didn't use your services. I tried to convince them, but they "had a friend". Then they listed their current home a while ago with the same agent, even though I tried to convince them to go with you. They didn't get a lot of showings. After several months, they gave up. Well their house went on the market today. Listing agent? Marti Hampton! And guess what? They have already had an offer! This one may not pan out (although I hope it does), but Mom is looking pretty smart right now!!! Hopefully dinner will be a cause for celebration! Like I said, YOU ROCK!!

Let me first thank you for your incredible professionalism and service in selling our home! Wow, to think we went under contract in a week is just amazing! Your team, that we worked with, was always on time, knowledgeable and just made our "quick" experience wonderful. Everything has just exceeded any expectations we had. Many people from the gym I work at have asked me who sold our house etc.... and I have MADE sure I have sung your accolades. Again, hats off to you, Heather and everyone else who has assisted us.

We feel very blessed and are so excited about our new home.

Thank you for everything!

Dear Marti,


A line to let you know how grateful I am that you have such a wonderful group of people trying to help me close on our home.


Dave Kenny has been such a gift - there are many things that need to be sorted and repaired and his reassurance and great communication have made this a much easier process in which to move forward. Jan has made great strides on my behalf making herself available to assist as well and I'm truly grateful. And Lydia has always been gracious and attentive.


Thank you for the Marti Hampton team,

Thank you for your prompt and always professional service (especially on a Sunday).Thank you for your prompt and always professional service (especially on a Sunday).
Hello Marti,

Thank you for your prompt and always professional service (especially on a Sunday).

Besides saying thank you…I wanted to personally thank you for what you had told me almost a year ago. Have faith in the Lord and to pray. Easy enough words to tell a stranger, a client or friend...much more difficult words to carry with us into our daily lives and interactions. Thank you for stepping up my "game"; for the words that easily came to you have now come to pass by me in witnessing the truth, my truth: Have faith in the Lord and Pray. Believe.

I look back at this year of tangles and webs and dead-ends and delays (nothing to do with the home…just life in general) and I am blessed to have come out the other end to the realization of just what a magnificent journey of life we each have been given. Everyone with their own story, their own chapters which overlay ours. During this time of Lent and reflection I remember you telling me your story and how your faith and prayer and hard work kept you moving forward with your children, your family. One day, one struggle at a time.

Whatever happens to what once was my children's home on Springfield Drive will happen. It was a wonderful home to use while we lived within its walls…I know it will sell one way or another and that life will continue and I will not fall apart just because a deal may or may not happen in the way I want or need. But by having someone who is in front leading - YOU ANSWER YOUR PHONE - is a way to remind myself that I can be more than I am because I have seen your reflection of action. Not your words but your way...

Small steps. Thankful ones. Have a blessed…

Thank you. For everything. It's a great reminder.

"...you absolutely picked a winner with Marti & her team."
Dear Marti,


My brother, *******, who is a laconic person came out of the doorway after closing & immediately stopped me & said, "Sis, you absolutely picked a winner with Marti & her team. They were fabulous. Not only did they sell the house in record time & steer us straight about everything, I have never been to such a quick closing. Just amazing!"

That, my dears is indeed high praise.

I want to thank you all for your patience with me, & my often repeated questions, your delightful personalities, your immediate responses to my inquiring nature and your up-front handlindling of important issues. Y'all made what I thought would be an ordeal a down right pleasure.

It will my pleasure, no my honor, to joyfully recommend your services to anyone I come across who is interested in selling their homes. I have lived in Raleigh 33 yrs & lived in 4 homes & never experienced the type of service & even "hand-holding" that y'all gave this slightly nutty Yankee.
(hope you noticed I did sneak in 2 y'alls)

Have a Fabulous weekend. I will miss talking, & teasing to you,

Best wishes,

Flo Singer

Appreciation letter: "I offer the attached document as testament to your team"
Marti,

Fourteen months ago, I began a quest to locate and acquire a new home. With laundry list of wishes, wants and must-haves in hand, I strode forth wading into the virtual sea of available ‘For Sales’ confident in swiftly uncovering my ideal residence. As the weather warmed, listings thinned and my optimism waned, I was astonished to see months of exertion, hours upon hours of time and hundreds of traveled miles deprived of positive results.

I began to question my wishes. I leaped to question my wants. I flew to question my must-haves. I started to question my sanity!

Just as I was about to concede the pursuit - throw in the towel - resign my aspirations – your office referred me to Broker Denni Haywood. Denni listened patiently as I poured out my frustrations, outlined my desires and spilled my visions. She got it. She got me! She recognized what I was searching for and compiled a list of properties. The very first one on her list, a listing I would have never noticed on my own, soon afterwards became my new home.

During the due diligence and negotiation periods Ms. Haywood was a persistent unstoppable fighter, championing my rights and interest as buyer throughout the entire proceeding. The valuable advice she shared with me was accurate and her leadership through the labyrinth of Real Estate made my path painless. Her strategic and relentless efforts to follow through on every last detail validated and, above all, she never fell short when it came to sincerity and a genuine personal touch. I was earnestly grateful to have such a patient, optimistic and resourceful professional on my side. She is a true jewel.

My closing was processed by another pearl of your office, Barbara Kingston. I believe that quality, blended with excellent service, is the foundation for a successful business relationship. To Barbara Kingston I must say, "It is gratifying to meet someone dedicated to doing a good job. Your efforts are sincerely appreciated. Thank you so very, very much for every single thing you did. You were unfailingly resourceful and patient and diligent and thorough! A very, very creative problem solver. You are what kept this deal together and made it go through. I’m certain you made some behind the scenes efforts that I did not see and I thank you for those as well".

Based on my experience with these seasoned professionals, and without reservation, I would highly recommend this team and your agency to anyone requiring the services of a professional Realtor.

Thank you,

Jeffery L. Price

You and Naomi gave us the best advice how to present and price the home, we are so glad we followed it everystep!

A Happy Short Sale Seller
Dear Marti,

Bill and I wanted to personally write you and thank you for helping us close the sale of our house at 7324 Sparhawk Rd in Wake Forest.

It never ceased to amaze me that Jennifer always knew exactly what was going on with the sale of our home. I am sure that this sale was not a typical textbook easy sale and Jennifer wore many hats and executed the sale flawlessly.

It seemed like the cards were stacked against us the last month prior to closing but Jennifer always "had our backs". This is a down economy and an even tougher time to sell an expensive home but your team got it done!

Marti, you have always been there for us and we are so grateful. Please know how much we appreciate your team, especially Jennifer Harris.

Sincerely,
Bill and Elizabeth Braddy

Agent:

Thank you
Marti,

Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we all were with Susan during the house buying process. It was a pleasure to work with her and we especially appreciated her professionalism and negotiation skills. Dennis and Lauren love their new home at 12301 Fieldmist Drive.. Thanks again.

Regards,
Paul Malinowski
Agent:

We are so grateful...
We are so grateful for Susan's help and guidance in the purchase of our new home. As first time homeowners, we did our research before plunging into this endeavor. However, even in this age of "do-it-yourself", nothing beats the expert advise and years of experience that a real estate agent can give. Susan had done more... she really cared that our family gets the dream home we had wanted. We are happy where we are now, thanks to Susan and the rest of Marti Hampton's team who had worked in making this dream a reality.

Denni knew Us Better Than We Knew Ourselves!
Denni was wonderful to work with. She knew us better than we did. When we looked at a house and had come to a conclusion that we wanted to put an offer on it, Denni could tell that my wife was still not sold. Instead of immediately drafting up the offer, she waited to hear back from us until the following morning. Overnight, we had discussed it further and made a decision to make an offer on another house that my wife had her heart set on. Happy wife, happy life! Denni fought for us throughout the negotiations and always went the extra mile to look out for our best interest. She was a real bulldog. I'm glad she was on our side. Thanks for all your hard work Denni. It was a pleasure working with you.
Agent:

Heather, Thank you for Being Such a Pleasure to Work With!
Thank you Heather! Having to relocate from out of state is a daunting task, however working with Heather made it as pleasant and as smooth as it possibly could be. Heather's ability to listen- truly listen & hear- what our goals and expectations were made the house hunting process a pleasure. Our limited time to find a house (4 days!) was well spent due to Heather's diligence and attention to detail. At times it was as if she read our minds! We highly recommend Heather for anyone relocating as she will go above and beyond to find you exactly what you are looking for, all the while keeping you assured that your needs are understood and addressed. She is a pleasure to work with!
Agent:

Thank you again...
Hello Marti,

As I reflect on the past week, my encounter with you is prominent in my mind. I did not want this upcoming week to begin without you knowing how appreciative I was of our meeting. Although the outcome was not what i wanted to hear, in actuality, it was what I needed to hear. You knew ahead of time that you would not be able to help me, due to the home being significantly underwater, but you took the time to meet with me anyway. Thank you again for being honest and informing me of my options.

Please feel assured that we will meet again, not until the time is right. You will be the first person I contact when it is practical for me to buy or sell this property.

All the best until we meet again,

-(Feedback from one of our prospective sellers)
Agent: Marti Hampton

Thank you Marti and Team!
Let me say an overdue THANK YOU to you and your team for handling the sale of our house in Raleigh. A big shoutout to Jan for those last hairy days when the closing kept getting moved. We are so relieved to have that monkey off our backs.
Agent: Marti Hampton

Marti, Thank you.
Marti,
From the time you and I met at Winston's it has been such a pleasure to work with you. My wife Julie and I have told everyone we know how
quickly you sold our home and how you did it in such a professional manner. Also, Daphne was phenomenal in working with us on our new home purchase.
We will look for any way to refer you into more situations where your expertise is needed. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Agent: Marti Hampton

Who knew that my home would be sold and close within 10 days!!!
We contacted Marti Hampton and her team when my husband accepted a job out of state to sell our house. Little did we know that within 24 hours of being listed would we accept an offer!! The house sold and closed in less than 10 days!!! No one ever thought that the house would sell that fast. Thanks Naomi for a great job!!
Agent: Naomi Rodrigues

Hooray For Susan!
Susan was an amazingly detailed and attentive agent. She coordinated things beautifully for us, checked everything over and even helped us overcome various obstacles. The recommendations she made were spot on. She assisted us in sorting through the madness and guided us in picking out options for the home in relation to the latest style and resale. We are so grateful to Susan for all the effort and time she invested in us and our home. Her demonstration of all these things and more showed us she viewed us as people not just customers or a sale. She comes HIGHLY recommended!
Agent:

Thank You!
I want to take a moment to brag on one of your agents Jennifer Harris. In Dec. 2011 I had the privilege of meeting Jennifer. She took over for a gentleman that left your agency. I immediately liked her and felt that she would do whatever she could to make the purchase of a home for me and my little girls seamless.
As it turned out, the purchase was anything but…and I probably would have quit long before the deal was sealed if it had not been for Jennifer’s knowledge and hard work in getting me all of the answers and information I requested. She was up late, worked on the weekends and was immediately available for me. I could not have asked for ANYTHING more. She was wonderful.
Buying a house was a huge investment for me. I would not have done it had it not been for Jennifer. I would recommend her to ANYONE buying or selling a home.

Agent:

Could Not Be Happier!!
My wife Denise and I had the pleasure of working with Denni and Faruk this weekend in a quick turnaround purchase we had to do in Wake Forest. We could not be happier with the service and attention we received and love the house that we picked out. I just wanted to let you know what a great experience it was for us and that we would recommend Denni, Faruk, and RE/MAX ONE REALTY to any of our friends that were in need of such services. We wanted you to know personally as I am a District Manager for Target and I always get to hear the bad, and love it when someone takes the time to share the good. Have a great week.

Faruk,
I wanted to sincerely thank you for your help on this loan. Your creativity in helping us avoid PMI and jumbo rates has undoubtedly saved us a bunch of money.

We really appreciate your help.

Agent: Marti Hampton

Only the Marti Hampton Team Will Do!
Marti, Having use you as our selling agent previously, it did not take much thinking to decide who to use when we began looking to purchase again. Just wanted to say that we could not have been more please with Daphne as our buyers agent. She was better than we had even hoped. She was always available, answered or found the answer to all our questions and then some, and was the nicest person to work with during our purchase. I feel that not only did we have a super buyers agent, but now we have a friend. She made the buying process actually fun. Thanks Marti for having Daphne on your team. When we are ready to sell or buy another home we will be sure to give your office a call. Lonnie & Brenda Christopher

Hi Marti,

Thank you again for being such an amazing realtor and selling our home in Apex in June of 2009. Fred and I really appreciate all of the hard work that you and your team did to list our house as "upcoming" and the professionalism of both the MLS listing and the flyers that your team produced.

I have talked to a friend of mine and recommended that she contact you regarding listing her home in Holly Springs

We always remember the fun we had finding our house in Raleigh. You made that house possible and when we had to relocate, you were their for us. We have always remembered your kindness and professionalism.
I volunteer at a senior center on Mondays and Tuesdays I am a baby cuddlier at our local University hospital. Les is considering working part time and is on the hunt. We always have fond memories of Raleigh and our friends and consider you in that group. Life must agree with you as you look amazing. Blessing and take care!

The biggest thing was trust and I never once doubted you for a second. Your excellent at what you do!

Words Are Not Just Not Enough
Ms Hampton,

I just got finished working with Shelley. She was without a doubt the best realtor I have ever worked with. I know our purchase wasnt for a ton of money but she treated us like we were spending a million dollars. All our questions were answered right away and without delay. It's hard to find a trusty worthy person these days, but I never doubted her for a second. She made this purchase very simple. I wish I could do something more than this email to express our true gratitude.

Thank you!

Greetings Marti,

Just read your advice in the latest issue of ABOVE magazine. Didn't know you were famous when I referred you and your team. Having worked with your staff thus far I understand why you rank where you do. The Weymers are thrilled, so I am very pleased. It's just too bad you're so far away...I'd love to do more business with you Marti! It's been a pleasure.

Agent: Marti Hampton

You are the only one that follows up
Thanks Shelley,

I think at the present time we would like to have communities to look at. Given our location now we are about 15 or twenty minutes from her work, and about the same to the airport.I just don't want for her to have to drive really far. Black Horse Run north Durham was just too far. Black Horse Run where we are now North Raleigh its alright, we would like to see and compare other facilities. Portofino, Clayton was great loved it, just really far commute. What we are trying to now is to focus on the communities, with the option of having a private barn and renting stalls ourselves.

All in all it will probably be our last move, she will keep on working an I will hang out with the horses and work around the house. She is worried about long commutes and me getting bored because I like to be around people.

We aren't in a big rush and I always use your site, rest assured out of the six I emailed, you are the only one that follows up.
Agent:

You guys rock!
Shelley, I just want to thank everyone for helping me buy my first home. It was both a good and slightly nerve wracking experience! Again, thanks for everything you did for me. You guys rock!!!!! Amanda Dean

Professionalism & customer service at its best
Hi Marti,

Just want to say thank you to you and your staff for selling our/my parent's house and closing the deal. Special thanks go to Lydia and Mary Amonns who stayed on top of things through out the entire listing. They always returned my calls and answered my questions. They kept me abreast of everything going on. Mary was great at giving pep talks and keeping my nerves from getting to frazzled especially during the crazy closing. LOL Lydia was great too. This is what I call professionalism and customer service at its best. I know we all would have liked to have been able to sell it for more but in this market I feel very blessed to have sold it. When you first listed it, I remember you saying it would be sold by this summer. You your team made it happen. My only regret was not finding out about you and your team when we first put it on the market. I know who I will call on first when the time comes to put my house on the market. Again I can't thank you all enough for all your hard work. Any time I get a chance I will recommend anybody I know buying or selling a house to you and your team.

With the Thanksgiving & Christmas season not to far away from around the corner, -I just want to say enjoy be merry and have a great new year.

Sincerely,
Tammy

Questions are always answered
Evan has been a real help! He has shown us every property we wanted to see, thought we wanted to see and has been there, by our side, the entire time. I can call him early in the morning or late at night and my questions are always answered, no matter how silly they may be. When we got our rate from our lender, he did a comparison to see which rate to choose. He's very thorough and a pleasure to do business with. We couldn't be any happier! I wish we could have bought our first house with Evan!

Co-op agents love working with the Marti Hampton Team
Bonita,

Mary and all the folks on Marti Hampton’s team did a great job, first by being able to negotiate well enough to get this property when there was so much interest and competing offers. The processing of the sale with the inspections, working with the requirements of the financing and keeping calm when it all came down to the wire was a great display of professional ability.

Tim
Agent: Bonita Carrigan

Having Team Marti sell my home was the best decision I could have made...
My experience started in April of 2011 when a local radio ad reminded me of Marti Hampton's reputation for being the best realtor in NC. Naomi started the ball rolling and was so professional and thorough that I knew I was going to well taken care of throughout the selling process. Lydia guided the process next and when I received an offer within 2 weeks of my townhome being listed, it was Marti herself who took charge and then completed the offer acceptance process quickly and with a "win-win" result for both the buyer and myself. Debra took over at that point and handled every last detail with incredible expertise and care so that the closing went perfectly. Having Team Marti sell my home was the best decision I could have made and it made my trip down "Seller's Lane" a first class experience every step of the way. My sincere thanks to all of you!
Agent: Naomi Rodrigues

Thank you for all your help
Well Ladies...

I was going to wait until the money is wired into my account before I said thank you but I'm feeling pretty cocky and confident. Just a big thank you for all your help. I know we weren't the easiest family to deal with (my brother, different smells, many nail holes hee) but I really do appreciate everything. My whole family does. Today is the 5 yr anniversary of my mother's death. I'd like to think she was supervising everything today to make sure all went well. I feel bad having to give up the house, but I just couldn't afford it. Hopefully the new owners will prosper there. I'm glad I'll actually have some money in the bank. Wishing you all well..

With deepest appreciation,
Kathleen
Agent: Naomi Rodrigues

I can’t imagine the hoops you all are jumping through
Debra, thanks for all your help. Having dealt with the Dept of Defense for over 42 years I understand how things happen beyond our control.
Both Judy and I said we would look back on this experience and laugh some day, just not right now. Again, thanks and please thank Marti and Mary for us. I can’t imagine the hoops you all are jumping through with all of these new finance rules and the folks who are losing their investments in their homes.

We are so thankful...We are so thankful...
I can’t thank you all enough. Bonita for all the trips all over Raleigh, surrounding areas and beyond, Vicky for helping us out so quickly every time we called her and to her sellers for being such wonderful clients and expediting all the repairs. Debra for all the coordinating to be sure things progressed along the way, and Tom who handled paperwork for two homes. I am sure there are lot more details but I think everyone gets the idea, this was a huge effort by everyone and did not go unnoticed by Carrie and I. We are thankful for having such a wonderful team of professionals working with us and will highly recommend all of you to future home buyers!

Thank you all for helping us get into our new adorable house as quickly and smoothly as possible!

Hope you had a great Christmas! If you don't have to much going on this weekend, come by and see the house. We should be starting to move stuff in on Sunday....Finally. The kitchen is pretty much all we have left to paint for now.

Just give me a call we will be around all weekend, it will be great to see you and I can't wait for you to see the house. Talk to you soon.

Honest, Loyal, and DedicatedHonest, Loyal, and Dedicated
I got the benefit of working with Naomi before, during, and after the sale. She knew the area and helped us settle into the neighborhood and city. She helped us out with any problems that came up throughout the process.

To describe Naomi, I would say she is honest, loyal, and dedicated. Naomi met our expectations without a doubt! I would recommend Naomi to a friend in a heartbeat because I know that she will take care of their needs. If there was anything that she was unsure about, she would get the facts and not try to string you along. Naomi was always professional and maintained a positive attitude. She did make me suddenly realize that this was not just another house. It was a place that I could call Home.

Mary's hard work and dedication to relocate our family was outstanding!
Dear Marti,

We are just relocating to the area, and I can not tell you how wonderful Mary has been. She took the time to show us so many houses and never gave up until we found the perfect house for our family. Mary's hard work and dedication to relocate our family was outstanding. Thanks Mary!!

Agent:

1000% delighted!
Dear Marti,

I wanted to write to you to let you know that my wife Anne and I were 1000% delighted with our recent home buying experience with Team Marti and especially with Bonita Carrigan.

Initially Anne contacted you on a referral from a friend of ours and you had Bonita contact us to help us out. The rest is history. We have purchased a town house. Our daughter Allison is all moved in well ahead of her classes starting at NCSU. Furthermore, from the time I first met Bonita until closing, a mere 22 days transpired. Fantastic job and we are very very satisfied.

Bonita handled all information, communications, home viewings and follow-up actions in a timely and professional manner. I also found Bonita to be a very forthright and friendly person and with that we were able to establish an effective communications process. Right from our initial meeting and discussions on what we were looking for, I felt that I had an excellent resource working for Anne and me. Time proved that feeling very correct. To add, it was a demanding two days, but fun. I knew we would find what I was looking for.

From the web page process structure around our initial defined requirements we were able to provide Bonita with a list of 10 properties I wanted to view. I came to Raleigh for 2 days to view properties; 12 and 13 June. On the 12th, after meeting Bonita, we were able to view those 10 properties, collect notes, discuss options, and the positive and negative attributes of each. After consulting my family the evening of the 12th, I realized that I needed to let Bonita know that our requirements had changed slightly. I notified her of our new requirements. That evening she located and lined up more visits for the next day. So on the 13th we viewed another 9 locations. It was in this second day of viewings where we ultimately found our town house. Through all of my questions, changes, and detailed data collection, Bonita was offering helpful suggestions and worked with me to find the right place. I left Raleigh exhausted, on data overload, and with easily 8 properties that could work and three properties identifies as closest to fitting the bill.

I discussed the options over the weekend with my family. We came to a decision and contacted Bonita on Monday, 16 June to start the offer process. From there it was a whirlwind of messages, telephone call discussions and offers. The result was we were able to come to an agreement on the property at 5315 Silver Moon Lane in Crescent Ridge sub-division. I valued Bonita’s inputs and devil’s advocate exchanges. What was great was that the negotiations were done quickly. Bonita kept us informed each step of the way and after reaching a final contact on 20 June, we closed on 3 July. Wow!

Along with Bonita, we had the strong support of Dannette Underwood to pull off the closing. The procedures in place, check lists, and continual follow-up worked to perfection and all documents were in place in plenty of time. After closing, Dannette has been very helpful with other questions and we really value that extra effort.

Please pass on my thanks to not only Bonita, but to Dannette and the others behind the scene in your organization which made all of this possible.

Anne and I would describe this total experience as one in which we were delighted. We felt the strong focus from Bonita on doing what it took to not only satisfy the customer for the sake of concluding a sale, but to make sure that after the sale we would be just as satisfied with our decision as we were when we first made it.

If we have the opportunity to recommend a realty agency we certainly will speak very highly of our excellent experience and especially the tireless efforts of Bonita Carrigan.

Thank you Team Marti!
Sincerely,
Greg L.

They got our home sold in an extremely difficult market!
We were very pleased with Marti Hampton and her team approach in the recent sale and purchase of our homes. They got our home sold in an extremely difficult market where other listing agents had not succeeded. They helped us get our home in the best possible showing condition and made sure it was well presented and advertised (especially online). Marti even got our home exposed on national TV on the Today Show! We were always kept informed of nearby and related market activity so we felt we had a feel for what was happening in our market.
After the offer was made and accepted, the team approach continued to pay-off. We had not previously worked with a broker who had specialists for each phase of the process. We are now ecstatic about having specialists who focus on serving you and making things happen rather than the one agent trying to do everything. Sherri, as out closing specialist, was outstanding in every way and especially watched out for our interests during the entire process including sales contract changes, inspections, repairs, financing, moving and the closing itself. We felt as though everything was always under control. We never called with a question that Sherri was not already aware of and taking care of.
Once we had our existing home under contract, we had the great pleasure of working with Daphne (once again a specialist) as our buyer’s agent. Daphne worked hard to ascertain what features and types of property we wanted and then to find potential properties. Daphne was great to answer questions and provide input and always put our preferences as the priority. We never felt pushed in any way to try to get a sale. Furthermore, Daphne was literally available day and night, 7 days a week whenever we had availability. She never tired at showing us properties of interest over and over and over again. Once we made an offer, Daphne was there with us throughout the process including every inspection.
Thanks to Marti Hampton and her team. We will definitely be repeat customers. We highly recommend Marti and her team to all of our friends and family.
Sincerely,
- Rodney and Diana

If there was an Oscar or a golden globe i would nominate you!
"I have decided..... you are the best realtor in fact if there was an Oscar or a golden globe i would nominate you and if you didn’t win then i would demand a re count and if that didn’t work then i would demand that Oscars and golden globes be abolished and the Barry Award be issued instead that way i know you would be sure to win it many thanks.

"In our experience in house hunting, Daphne proved to be more than a realtor. She was a true friend! Daphne was energetic, patient, and adaptive to our needs as she helped navigate us through the huge Raleigh house market to find the perfect home for our family."

- Barry and Ellen (Ireland moving to the U.S.)
Agent: Daphne Anderson-Wall

Daphne was there through every step of the process
"When my wife and I began to look for our first home, we were both filled with mixed feelings of excitement and nervousness. Since this was our first home, we felt that hiring the right real estate agent was an extremely important step in the home buying process. After interviewing Daphne, my wife and I knew we had found the agent we were looking for. Daphne's attitude, professionalism, and determination to find the right home for us helped ease the nervousness we were feeling. Daphne was there through every step of the process, from finding listings based on our price and critieria, to the final walk through of our new home, to the signing of our closing paperwork; providing guidance, answering questions, and ensuring that we were completely comfortable before moving to the next step. Thanks to Daphne, my wife and I are now proud homeowners of a home in a neighborhood that we love!!!!"

- Paul & Michelle
Agent: Daphne Anderson-Wall

We would recommend you wholeheartedly
"Daphne, being assigned to you as our Real Estate agent was the best thing that happened to us while planning our move to Raleigh. You assisted us long-distance because we were not in the US at the time by sending us various listings over the internet of homes that you thought would suit us based on the requirements that we gave you. When we got to Raleigh you took us out to see the houses that we shortlisted. Ultimately, you found us a great house. Along the way, you also provided us promptly and very efficiently with information about schooling and all of the other many things that we asked you. We would recommend you wholeheartedly and without reservation to anyone who we knew needed a realtor. Thanks for everything - for being a great real estate agent and for becoming a friend."

Marti/Shelley/Debra -

I just want to thank all of you so much for making my home purchase such an easy endeavor!! I absolutely love the home and couldn't be happier with it. The picture is some of what Katelyn and I accomplished this weekend. (And I don't think this pic does it justice!) We also built a gate for the deck, planted an apple tree, and painted the master bedroom.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

We had to sell our house fast...We had to sell our house fast...
My husband took a job in Wilmington and we had to sell our house fast.
I was here with my 2-year old, working, and trying to sell a home.
Marti and Naomi came in and helped me to figure out what I had to do to sell our home quickly in a bad market. Their professional photographer really showcased the beauty of our house and helped to bring the buyers in. With their support, tremendous web presence, and advice, we were able to find a buyer less than a month after they listed the home. Their professional staff was always available to answer my questions and calm my fears!

Thank you so much Marti, Naomi, and the rest of the team!
Now my daughter can be with daddy again at the beach!

Thank You!
Hi Marti,

I apologize for taking so long to drop you a note, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you personally for getting our house sold, finally!!! While we took a big hit, we were just happy to have it sold and be able to move on with our lives.

Thanks for the good job of marketing and negotiating with the buyer on the repairs, especially the polybutylene pipe replacement request. I think that once we got the repair request signed off on (without the plumbing / replacing the pipes on it), that was the point in time that we started to believe the deal was actually going to go through. Your advice about sucking it up and paying $700 for repairs was excellent advice. Had we decided not to do any repairs, I’m sure the deal would have fallen through.

We can’t thank your team enough for all their hard work. I have personally thanked both Mary and Valerie. They are excellent at what they do!

Thank you again, Marti.
