Raleigh Buyer Testimonials

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!!

Professional, effective, result-focused...

Marti Hampton and Team is the most professional, effective, result-focused, no non-sense real estate team that I have worked with. Marti began our relationship with a personal, caring, yet very focused business meeting. Because of my experience with working with many real estate transactions and agents, Marti worked with me swiftly and effectively to maximize the marketing and successful closings of the listings.

From listing to closing, members of her team are always available to assist. Negotiations were handled professionally and with transparency. I respect and value Marti and the Team and their excellent customer service approach. I highly recommend Marti Hampton and Team to anyone!

Great Staging Work and Helping me get my Home Ready for the Market

Great Staging Work and Helping me get my Home Ready for the Market! I Love Erica Hollifield. She is the most gracious, generous and wonderful person to work with! She has been helping me get my home ready for the market for over a month now. She coordinated so many repairs and needed upgrades in my home and was a pleasure through out. Never could have done it with out her!

You are lucky to have her. I am very lucky to have worked with her and look forward to working with her again.

— Mary Zahn

"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,

— Gibbs Smith & Andrea Lemay

"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.

"...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!

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.

We 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

Warm Regards,

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


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

"I could not imagine a smoother buying process..."

I could not imagine a smoother buying process. Being a first time buyer, working with Lia made purchasing a home a breeze! Exceeding expectations to the fullest and being there for me every step of the way are only a few of many highlights to her customer service! Needless to say, I will be going back to Lia Watson and the Marti Hampton team for all of my real estate needs.

Thinking of you both...Thinking of you both...

— Lia,

Words are insufficient...

Words are insufficient to state what an efficient, competent, thorough and just darn nice Marti Hampton's team is. I cannot thank you enough for all that each one of you has done to make this a smooth transition to my home.

— Charlene Dawkins

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

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

"Keep up the good work!"


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!


First Class Service!

Hi Franklin,

Thanks so much for calling me yesterday to let us know the inspection went very well with our property. I appreciate your help getting the buyer's request for repairs to "Dave's This and That's" for estimate repair work... Thanks again for doing such a thorough job with the closing issues. I love have you as a resource to make this a smooth process...I will be sure to tell Marti that I love having this organization, professionalism, and seller resource for a smooth closing.

First class service!


Thank you for helping my Son sell his home


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.


Thank you for everything!

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!

Rachel and Mike

You and your team are indeed remarkable...

Dear Marti,

I can not believe how quickly this process has moved! I was dreading the long showing process, anticipating perhaps weeks before any movement.

We listed the house Friday at noon, and by the end of the day Saturday we had shown it to almost a DOZEN prospective buyers. By Sunday, I have at least two serious offers! In a day and a half, you have sent more people through my front door than in the ENTIRE time the home was listed by a previous realtor. And 2 offers in the first day and a half must be a record, although maybe not for you!

I heard you were the best in the business....and I am living proof. You and your team are indeed remarkable, and your marketing strategy cannot be beaten. Thanks for making this the most successful showing EVER!



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


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

Words cannot describe how grateful we are...

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have had Susan as our realtor. Being first time homebuyers, we were very nervous and didn’t know what to expect in the beginning. But, Susan made us feel tens time better about the process. With the amount of knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and thoughtfulness she has, it was no surprise that we made it through closing feeling like we had won the lottery! With Susan, we didn’t feel like “just another client,” we felt like friends, family, people she truly cared for. Susan was quick to respond, quick to communicate, and quick to deliver results. She truly went above and beyond our expectations. Susan was simply AMAZING! There just aren’t enough words to express our gratitude. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Susan and Marti Hampton team for getting us into our first home…we are truly amazed and in love with our home!


Ed and Dakida Ross

Thank you


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.


Paul Malinowski

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.

Maria Avendano

Faruk, Job Well Done!


Thanks for your hard work and dedication in helping me with my home purchase. You are professional and understanding of any situation. I will continue to recommend you to others. I hope that we will be able to work together again in the future if the need arises.

Thanks again,


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.

David and Denise Baum

Thank You for the Great Experience!


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. At our closing, Shelley, Evelyn, and even the attorney (David Hilton?) all spoke very highly of your work. You are well regarded in the community it seems and by us as well. We really appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Matt and Virginia

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

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!

Breanna Weymer

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.

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!!!!!

Met All The Neighbors Yesterday

Hey Naomi,

Yep we slept over there Saturday and met all the neighbors yesterday, they are really nice people. Tim put the underground fence in while we were closing and I trained Bear Sunday morning......... yes Bear is loving his freedom to roam.

We are truly enjoying the new home and the privacy! Thank you so much for your hard work and making everything go so smoothly!

Have an AWESOME week,


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!

Carrie & Martin

Green light!

My husband and I decided it was time to down size to a home we expect to be our retirement home. Marti was wonderful. She came out and evaluated our home in Wake Forest. Before actually listing the home for sale we wanted to see what we would find in the Raleigh area.

We finally decided there was something out there and we would find it. We gave Marti the green light to list our home. In less than 24 hours we had an excellent offer! We had to get busy and find a home or do the apartment thing. Marti's team came to our rescue and found us the perfect home in a great location in a neighborhood we have come to love! I have told all my friends what a great experience we have had with Marti and her entire team. Every step of the way someone was always available to help us with the question of the day. This team knows the Raleigh area and they know Real Estate. I have recommended them to everyone who even mentions buying or selling a home. What a great experience!! Thank you to Marti and thanks to the whole team! - Linda Ward

Honest, 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.

Patrick, Government Security, Cisco

SOLD - Could not have been better...

Naomi, Kathy and I wish you all the happiness and success you can stand!! Our experience with you could not have been better. Your professionalism, care and good humor really made our choice a wise one. Every question and concern was quickly addressed and we will not forget how special you made us feel. God Bless you and we hope to run into again someday.

SOLD - 6305 Dry Fork Lane

Marti and her team of specialists helped us buy our awesome home and sell our existing home in this difficult market conditions. Her team members were very curteous and were always available to help. They were very thorough in negotiating all the details in the selling process. We closed on both homes on the same day and it went seamlessly. We enjoyed working with each and every one on her team.

Thanks Marti, Daphne, Mary, Lisa, Sherri, Dannette and Laura and the web team.

Sogra & Ajit

This summer we had the pleasure of experiencing why the Marti Hampton Team is #1!

Marti Hampton sold our home in 16 days for more than the asking price, at a time many considered a "cooling real estate market".

From start to closing each member of the team has provided our family with top notch personal service. While some have real estate down to a science, the Marti Hampton Team masters the process of buying and selling homes to an art.

With much gratitude,

The Densons

2 Houses Bought From Marti Hampton & Team

Marti Hampton's team excels at customer satisfaction. Daphne Burris surpasses all expectations! We've used her for two home purchases, and we'll continue to use her for any future purchases. The Support Team is helpful, knowledgeable and always friendly. Overall, the best home buying experience we've ever had.


Lisa Watson

SOLD - 205 Gooseberry Dr - Arbor Creek

Marti's a top notch lady! We had our house on the market with her before and the traffic that came in and out of our home was unbelievable... I couldn't keep up. Marti's truly professional, knows "her stuff" and is familar with the Arbor Creek neighborhood. With all the "Marti sold another one" signs we wanted ours to say that too. Looking forward to her helping us find our new home in NC!

Kevin and Nancy Ziesi

SOLD - 241 Evesham and 14801 Aiken Road

Marti Hampton is the BEST! We bought our present house with Marti, bought and sold my mother’s "starter" home with Marti, and sold our 20acre farm with Marti.

No two properties , no two buyers/sellers are alike. Marti and her team do a great custom job. She knows the market, and prices it right. She has a great website and does a super marketing job, whether the property is large or small. She’s up-to-date, using the internet to full advantage-- for marketing to buyers, for letting the seller follow the progress of the process, and for communication.

Marti’s honest, cares about people, and works hard for agreements that satisfy all parties. She comes up with creative solutions to issues along the way. Marti’s Team is efficient, responsive, cheerful, and helpful. They follow through.

You get the best with Marti—a professional agent and a real friend!!

Dave & Peggy Ruopp

Sold - Hobhouse Cir - Windsor Forest

...One week from closing, if a friend was to ask me if I was able to sell my place, I would replied in defeat, "No way this is going to happen". I myself seldom ever give up in any situation, but to fix all of the complications 1 week before closing seemed impossible. ... I was sure that I would remain there until death.

BUT!! Somehow your team made it happen!!

Thanks for a job well done!!

Just a note to express my appreciation to you and your staff for the terrific job you all did in finding my new home.

The professionalism shown by you in handling some very unusual circumstances kept me searching until we found the perfect home. This in itself was a real accomplishment, but knowing that it had to happen in 3 days is a tribute to you and your knowledge of the real estate market in Raleigh.

Thank you so much!


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!!


Daphne made it easy


Today we have received a contact on our High Grove house listed with your firm. I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed working with Daphne on this house. I appreciate her work ethic and professionalism as we strived to get this house sold.

I think you are lucky to have her on your team.

Best regards,




First let me tell you how thrilled I am with everything you and your team has done with both my current home sale and my new home purchase. You have done everything I asked and didn't really think was possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Incredible! That's how I would describe this team. They obviously are a very busy team in order to have the success they have. However, it felt as if we were their only priority. Each person we came in contact with at the office, as well as the realtors, was attentive to our needs and a great encouragement. Marti was great in coming over and helping us prioritize what needed to be done first in order to get our home on the market quickly and to sell quickly. Our home sold in 2 days with several bids. Our buyers agent was Daphne Burris. We can't find enough words to describe this energetic go-getter. She was awesome in her determination and enjoyable to be around. Again, knowing she's a busy woman, we felt we were her only priority in finding us a home. When we realized we were not going to be able to purchase a home that we were interested in, that afternoon she said "I'm going to find you a home, I'm going home right now to start looking". The very next morning, she forwarded a home that was not showing in our search. We couldn't wait to get out to see it. Due to her determined, go-getter character, we signed a contract with the builder before leaving the property. I am sitting in that house now as I type this and we are thrilled to be here. BTW - this is the only house that all 4 family members got excited about. We LOVE it. Thanks so much to you and your team Marti. I highly recommend you.

Marti Hampton team:

I can not thank you enough for assisting me through the closing for 2416 Deanwood Drive. You are an absolute sweetheart and were extremely helpful through out the entire process. Without your valuable advise and expertise, I do not think I could have survived this ordeal.

Thank you for your hard work on our behalf


Thank you for working so hard to get our house sold and helping us find a wonderful new home. We couldn’t believe our house had three offers and sold in two days. That was amazing. It says a lot about the preparation your team made on our behalf prior to listing day.

Your closing team was very professional. It was a pleasure to work with Sherri and Valerie. Throughout both closings, they stayed on top of things, making it much easier on us than I had expected.

Daphne was great. We were a little discouraged after we found a home that we liked, but it was going into foreclosure and it looked like it might take a long time to get to terms and closing. But the next day, Daphne had three more homes to look at and one turned out to be the one our family was looking for. Our new home here on Monthaven Drive was the first house that our whole family was really excited about. And Daphne helped negotiate the purchase right there on the spot. We love our new home.

We had a couple of lenders lined up prior to making an offer, but Daphne recommended we try Faruk Okcetin with Walker Jackson. I want to take a moment to tell you how pleased we were with him and his company. To begin, he helped us buy down the rate to 4.25%, beating all other lenders by quite a bit. Then he accelerated the paperwork chain and underwriting process to help us close a week earlier than we thought we might.

But the thing that really raised our estimation of Faruk and Walker Jackson was what happened following closing. On review of our loan documents, it was determined that the buy-down points were left off, resulting in a deficit of about $3,600 that Donna and I would need to pay. Faruk caught that error Friday evening and gave me a call. When he pointed it out, I said “Of course we will pay that. We can get you a check next week.” I recognized that this was just a mistake and had no reservations in making good on our original arrangement. The following Tuesday, Faruk gave me a call and he told me that after talking with his manager, Walker Jackson had decided to forgive the whole amount. You don’t see that very often anymore. For these reasons, we wholeheartedly recommend Faruk and Walker Jackson to you and your clients.

Thank you again for all you, and your team, have done for us.
