Very satisfied!

I met Jenne at Marti's office prior to going to view a property. I immediately knew that she was the Realtor for me. Jenne has the ability to make those around her feel comfortable. She knows how to communicate, most importantly to listen and understand. We found a property within my search criteria very quickly, and from there, it was a piece of cake. Jenne handled everything. She recommended a Mortgage Firm to use, Inspector, Closing attorney.....they whole thing. I just had to sit back and sign electronically on all the necessary forms she generated. My job requires considerable travel and day-to-day contact with clients. I don't have the time to manage the myriad of tasks it takes to close on a house. No worries with Jenne, she will take care of it for you. Even more impressive, she will negotiate very strongly on your behalf. This is my 4th home in the last 24 years, and Jenne made it seem easier than finding and signing a lease for an apartment. All of this while maintaining an upbeat, positive attitude. Jenne made the entiree home buying experience pain free and incredibly efficient. Do yourself a favor and ask for Jenne Kendziora when you are ready to find your next home. When the closing is over, you will have made a new friend.

Well-oiled machine

Naomi is a very astute Realtor. She uses a fact based approach in pricing and other factors, rather than allowing emotion. As a result, she guided me to a sales price based on fact, and it resulted in my home selling quickly. Additionally, her approach gave me confidence in the way forward. Her responsiveness could not have been any better, and she is an excellent and quick negotiator. The entire process with Naomi and ReMax went very smoothly for me. They seem to be a well-oiled machine.

Susan Brown: What incredible service!

I contacted the Marti Hampton team to schedule a viewing on a house they had listed. I had the privilege of being assigned to Susan Brown from their team to work with me as a buyer's agent. What incredible service!! From beginning to end, I was well supported, highly valued, and reached my desired outcome!! I purchased my dream home!! I highly recommend the Marti Hampton team. 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!


Hello Everyone! My first impression of The Marti Hampton Team is an A+! I've been working really hard to get my house ready for the market. Almost there. Thanks to William, Marti, Lisa, Renee, and Erica for each part you have played until now. You guys are AMAZING!

Working with the Marti Hampton Team

My wife and I had a really positive experience with Marti’s team. The team was so efficient, helpful, and very professional from the time we started our selling process to the happy moment of buying a new home. Marti is super knowledgeable and experienced in every aspect of real estate. She advised us a right price for the house that we were selling and provided all necessary assistance that made the process smooth and comfortable for us. Jacquelyn is an absolutely wonderful agent, very flexible, reliable and extremely organized. She found a right home for us that fit our needs in a great neighborhood for a reasonable price. It was a big pleasure to work with her. Jan walked us through each step of the closing and made the whole selling and buying process so easy and stress-free for us. She is incredibly professional, detailed and confident in the real estate finance and documentation. We are enjoying our new house and appreciate the great experience with Marti’s team.

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.

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 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!!


~Emily McDonagh

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!

~Zon Zonlec

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.

-John Glotzer

Team Marti Hampton is the way to go!

I recently sold my home with Re/Max One Realty. They are very knowledgable, professional, and patient throughout the entire process. Starting with Naomi and Martha Choe,brokers, Franklin Currin, closing manager and Jan Tomlinson closing specialist.

Team Marti Hampton is the way to go!

-Susan Carr

Marti'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.

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.

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!!

"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.


-Nathan Harrington

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.

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!!

"He was very easy to work with & gave us excellent guidance during the whole process..."

Hi Marti,

Megan & I wanted to let you know what a great job Eric did on the sale of our house.

We are in California & Eric handled the long distance details easily. He was very easy to work with  & gave us excellent guidance during the whole process. Keep up the great work!

Chris & Megan Pratt

"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

Matt and Stephanie Fuchs

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..."!


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

We love cheerleaders!

Go Team Marti... I'm a believer!

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


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 were treated professionally with care and consideration..."

I...want to commend you and your staff, and to thank you, as well, for helping to make the sale of our house in Raleigh as smooth a process as could be expected. Throughout the entire process, we were treated professionally with care and consideration, and Michael and I wanted you to know how much we appreciate you, Lydia, Jan and everyone else working with you at ReMax.

~~Michael and Dana Dowling

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,

Amaris Balkus,

"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!


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,


Thank you so much!


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!

Dan & Cecelia

"...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.  They took my burden, made it their own, and sold my properties with maximum efficiency.  Thank you, Team Marti.  You're the best!

Carol Esperseth


" have a wonderful and caring team..."

Dear Marti-I sincerely want to thank you for all your help and to tell you that you have a wonderful and caring team working for you.  Franklin and Lydia have been a blessing, offering so much help and encouragement at this most difficult time.  I don't think I could have gone through all this without them.

Carol Esperseth

"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...


Thank you SO MUCH...

We can not say enough good things about Marti, you & the rest of her team. We are so grateful for all you have done & continue to do.

We will be patient until the right home comes along, but ONLY through you & Marti's team.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Dan & Cecelia

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.

"You are wonderful to work with and your team is amazing..."

~~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!

-Heather and Brian Bickley (sellers of 219 Presenteer Trail Apex, NC)

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!!

2414 Quarry Ridge Ln, Raleigh, NC 27610

Thank you - sincerely - for your service & support!


Not sure if we ever thanked you for the incredible job you did capturing / highlighting our home. You are a very gifted & talented young man, & a superior complement to Marti's Team. We could not be more pleased with how well you present our home. Thank you - sincerely - for your service & support!

Also, we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with you & your suggestions!


Warmest regards,

Dan & Cecelia Riley

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!

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.
Michael Cannon

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....


Jim and Carolyn King

"...awesome job all the way through from start to finish"

Many, many thanks for an awesome job all the way through from start to finish.  I can recommend you without reservation.  A special thanks to Jan for persistence, perserverance and dedication.  It's been a pleasure!



We appreciate you....

We appreciate you and all your associates....
Everyone has been more than professional and eager to help us.
Thank you

"Y'all run a smooth operation..."

Hi Franklin,

Just wanted to say thanks a bunch for all you did during the closing process.  You were fun to work with and so so patient with me.  Please tell all your team we said thanks including Naomi and Lydia. Y'all run a smoothe operation there and it was the least stressful sale we have ever had all due to y'all's efficiency as a team.  Hope you have a good rest of the summer.

Again, many thanks

Even when we don't sell the home - the sellers still endorse us!

"Thank you Marti for all your efforts and those of your team! Given the circumstances, I agree with your advice. I will move forward with Brent's rental clients. 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!"


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.


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!
Judy Schofield

Forever Grateful....

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.

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!!



Thank you for all your hard work

Looks fantastic! The pictures are amazing and so much better than our last listing with (-----).
Thanks for all your team has done!

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

Thank you for the Marti Hampton team
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,
Marianne Endicott

Thanks, guys!

Just wanted to thank Naomi Cho & the Marti Hampton  team for getting my house sold. My house was on the market last summer with one very low offer. This year with, Naomi, in 16 days I had 2 offers. One was slightly over asking! Thanks guys!

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.
-Marianne Endicott

Thanks for recommending John Czigler!!

I'm sure you know John very well. He is AWESOME!! Thanks for recommending his service. We couldn't have been more happy with his work, and it was such a pleasure meeting him. We had a lot of fun joking around with him.


A "Heart"-felt thank you...
"Thank you all for your patience, help and a great job. I will never forget you all and hope to see you all again."

"The Marti experience has been great...."
The pics look great -- let's sell this together. Thanks for all the help, the Marti experience has been great so far

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!

" 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

Wanted to let you know a potential client of yours (home in Garner, called me Sunday asking about the Marti Hampton team & about you and Naomi. We spoke for 20 mins & I told her wonderful things have been working with you and your team.  How informed we felt through out the process, how fast everything worked out, the beautiful photos and marketing you provided, and mostly how knowledgable and direct you are. 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.  

Bill and Elizabeth Braddy

Thank You Marti and Jan
I want to thank you and your team (especially Jan) for helping me finally sale my property on Snow Peak drive in south Raleigh.
Thankyou very much,
Tim Hoyle, Jr.

What a Great Team! Thank you to Marti, Jan and Lydia
 Marti, it was such a great feeling to move out today! I just wanted to
let you know how much help Jan has been in settling our warranty  issues and taking care of us. You, Lydia, and Jan have all been such a
 pleasure to work with. Even the teenage boy who cuts our grass while
 we are gone said you were really nice:) Thanks for selling our home!
Kimberly McDaniel

Barbara, Thank You
We put our family's house on the market and it sold quickly. Barbara Kingston took over from that point and did a beautiful job. She made sure that everything was quickly and efficiently taken care of. She made the closing an easy process to go through. We thank her for all her hard work.

Barbara, thank you for all of your help!
Hi Marti,
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed working with Barbara to get our closing done.  The due diligence and inspection phase of it was challenging, and did not need to be, but Barbara keep us on course to the finish line.  You are very fortunate to have Barbara on your staff; a true professional that has the ability to get things done and have some fun in the process. Her offer to deposit our check was another example of exceptional customer service. 
Stay well and take care.
Kay and Bob Cleary

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.

Marti, Thank you.
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.


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!!

I Now Have Another Hero in my Life...
Dear Lydia
Shelley just called to say that we have finished the negotiations on the house.
WE HAVE SOLD IT…..Could not have done it without you ladies………. 
I want you to know how very much I appreciate the assistance that you played in getting this done.
I have not had many heroes in my life…..First it was John Wayne, then it was Oliver North Now it is Lydia.

You are truly special in my book. 

I suggest that you tell Marty that I said it was OK for you to take the rest of the day off with pay!


What an AMAZING Photographer!
Hi Marti, 
Just got through looking at the full range of listing photos your photographer took, and wanted to let you know how happy I am with them. He did an AMAZING job! Hope some buyers are as impressed as I am,

Thanks to the Marti Hampton Team for Selling my Home in SEVEN Days!!!
Hello Marti,

Thanks so much for getting our house on the market and sold in 7 days. We close in the morning at 10am. Thanks for everything.

Glendora and Evie

Coming Soon Program Really Works

We believe that the Coming Soon program works. Our daughter and son-in-law's home sold a few years ago on Day 1 of the listing without ever being on MLS. 

Excellent Service!!
Thanks, Naomi! We're super excited!!  You and Susan have been so wonderful to work with - you've both really made this a great experience :)

Service So Good I Couldn't Keep it to Myself
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
Thank you, 
Denice Medlin

It is so great to hear from past clients!
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!

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.

The info sent by your office was very helpful to my son this past week.  You sold  my other son's house a couple years ago -we were very pleased with your services & will continue to use your co. for our real estate needs in the future.   
Thank you (all of those that contributed )

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!

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,

Gerry & Joan Gulick
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. 

Ridiculous easy...
Thank you for making this so ridiculously easy and stress-free for us!

Thanks so much!  I really appreciate your assistance!  I am so impressed with your teamwork and professionalism....and we got an offer over list price within 3 hours.  Results speak for themselves.

SOLD in 3 Days!
Thanks for the highly professional and efficient job with regard to selling my parent's place.
All the best,

Thank you so much for all that you are doing
Thank you so much for all that you are doing. I've never seen a realtor more committed and more hard working than you. It is obvious why you are ranked number one.

Considering this photo, am I excused from doing my "homework"?

Couldn't ask for better people
Hi Naomi,
Yep, I got the email earlier today.  Thank you so much for getting right on this.  We couldn't ask for better people working on our behalf.  Just want you to know how much we appreciate all you do.

Thanks to your staging and the Marti Hampton sales team, we have a contract on 11210 Oakcroft Drive!!!
Mark Miller

I am impressed.
Thank you for helping out my parents. I have been so impressed so far with the care and the highest level of service they are receiving. And you and your team professionalism is grand. 

We are so pleased!
I have been so pleased with our experience with Lydia DeMaria with the Marti Hampton Team at Re/Max One Realty!  She has been so responsive to all of our concerns in selling our home, and has been an absolute angel in her warm attitude and hard work.  As the person that we work with most closely after signing the initial listing agreement, Lydia's help has been so crucial to us.  Thank you Lydia!

Confident in our choice!
Hi, ladies!  I just wanted to send a quick email to all you, thanking you for all your hard work...  We definitely feel confident in our choice of realty firms!

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!

Sale of Our House
We cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us on the sale of our house.  We know that it was God who worked the miracle, but we also know that He uses people as well... and He used you in our life.  Your team was awesome!!!

SOLD - Could not have been better...
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.
Ron and Kathy Collis

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.

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.

Dear Marti-

You are the BEST! You have a staff that is A+, they are always available, willing and helpful. Your website is very professional!

The flyers for our home were EXCELLENT and described our property so fully that we felt comfortable the buyers would remember it long after their showing. The News & Observer ad isIMPRESSIVE and I know my home had full exposure to all buyers.

We would RECOMMEND YOU, Marti to anyone selling their home.

Alex & Maria Reinmann

1901-101 Trailwood Heights Lane
We decided to sell our condo that we had been renting for 2 years back in March 2007. We initially contacted another realty group who worked really slowly and it took several weeks for her to even "take a look" at our condo.

Living 2 1/2 hours away, we were not impressed at how this agent was working out. We decided to that we needed another realtor working for us, because we needed to sell before our current tenants moved. We saw Marti's ad on WRAL's website and clicked on it. We were very impressed with the website and all of the other testimonials of high praise.

We emailed Marti on Sunday afternoon and she returned our call on Sunday night! After that, within 1 week we were on the market and sold our property after only 5 weeks!

Our property was not an expensive property, however we were treated with the same courtesy and professionalism that the testimonials describe. Her staff was very prompt in answering all of our questions and we could not have asked for a smoother transaction!

Marti lives up to her reputation and more! If you need to sell your home, Marti should be your first call! Thanks again!

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,

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!

When Bobbie decided that she wanted to list our house with you, I had already decided that there was no way you would be worth the commission. I was wrong...

The lesson that I take from all of this is that I should just rely on Bobbie's judgement. In summary, when I think of all the agents we could have hired instead of you, I suspect that if we hired someone else, we would probably still own the house. So we both thank you very much for all you. You are a pro!

Amidst summer vacation and all the difficulties associated with an estate closure, it was a great thing to have sold so quickly! Your staff further assisted me in that not only was I very busy but that I live 4 hours away from the home that was sold. They were great. Please give them my best and many thanks for a smooth closing!

Sold - 309 Gretton Pl - Reedham Oaks
We interviewed 4 different realtors and were impressed with each one, but after evaluating all of their comments and suggestions we decided that Marti was the one for us. And, I must say we haven't been disappointed! Our house sold within the first two weeks on the market. Unfortunately that deal fell through, and after keeping our house off the market during "peak" selling season, but with the insight and guidance that Marti and her great staff, we quickly had it back on the market and sold it again in less than two weeks.

Don and Sue Krull

"Thank you for your efforts you and your team made in the marketing and sale of our house last year. We talked to you after some amount of frustration of our house being on the market for a while with another realtor. Of course, the ultimate goal in your profession is to make the sale. I am very appreciative of the outcome in our case. However, I am equally pleased with the way you conducted the process beginning at the listing and ending with the closing.

When Eddie and I first met you, we communicated what we felt we were looking for in our realtor. Afterward, you conveyed to us what you and your team planned to do. Upon listing our home, you and your staff did exactly what you said you would do. That really went a long way with me."

I would like to take a moment to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with you and your staff. As you know, my home was previously listied with a discount brokerage and I was very frustrated. Now after being with you for 3 weeks my home is sold!

You and your staff have been prompt and professional through the entire process of selling my home. The peace of mind that your team has provided cannot be measured.

Julia McDougall

"We were impressed with the number of showings of our home soon after it was listed with Marti Hampton. Marti worked very diligently and quickly to find us appropriate buyers for our home in a price range that we were happy with. Also, her office staff was always available to answer any questions we might have."

SOLD! 3016 Ranburne in Riverbrooke!
We thank you and Team Marti for working so hard and diligently for us. You and your wonderful team are a blessing to any seller who might be fortunate enough to secure you as his/her Listing and Selling Agent. 

You and Team Marti worked as steadfastly, and as professionally, if not more exemplary, than our former Real Estate agencies. We have no doubt that the success of our home sale, in a weaker sellers market, was due to the commitment of you and Team Marti! 

Thank You!

What Do Marti's Active Listings Say About Her?

...We are already impressed with the things you have done to help up sell our house. In less than a week your company has done more than we have seen in the previous 5 months. 

Arnold Q. Hager

SOLD- 203 Marvista Ct
It was great working with you on the sale of our house in Cary. I remember when we interviewed agents before choosing with whom to list that back then I wasn’t sure what value I could distinguish between all the agents and their different rates they charged. 

Now I am confident that it was specifically from your help along the way that allowed us to get three offers in eight days of being on the market, and to accept an offer significantly above our list price. I’d gladly pay your commission since you made me more money on the sale than I would have made myself or with someone else. 

I wish I had more property to sell right now with you!

Thanks a million, you’re the best!
Grice Whiteley

From Start to Finish - Awesome!
Can't thank you and your awesome team enough for the 
outstanding job of selling our home. Every aspect,  
from the listing to the closing was handled so well by you 
and your wonderful team.
Thank you!

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.

THANK YOU from Cary

Hi Marti,
My house closed yesterday, as scheduled, without a hitch.  Although you may do this week after week, it was an answered prayer for me.
First of all, your team was simply the most pleasant and professional people I have ever worked with.  They not only are good at what they do, they seem to enjoy their job of helping people; for truly you are in the service business.  You are servicing our largest investment with a potential of thousands of dollars on the table.  Your team was swift to respond, patient, kind and cohesive.  From the photographer to the closer and everyone in between.  You have a well-oiled machine.  You have truly taken advantage of your years of experience and we (buyers/sellers) are now the beneficiary of great service.
In this economy, its been tough for alot of people.  For me, having 2 mortgages and no job was no picnic.  I can truly say turning over my property to Marti Hampton's team gave me peace of mind.  I was able to sleep night's instead of worrying about what coulda, shoulda been happening.  Your team handled everything and then some.
I cried tears of joy when Debra called me to say the property had closed; as scheduled.  Not just for my situation, but I was happy that all the hard work your team put in paid off in the end. Paying a commission was a pleasure because having peace of mind is priceless.
Debra, could have treated me like an out-of-town basket case, instead, she balanced what she had to do with what she had to say to keep me grounded and believing she could and would get the job done with my best interest in hand.  I completed trusted her and she came through with flying colors!  If I didn't know any better, I would think I was her only client!  But, I know better.  She justs knows how to manage time, her skills and people.  Simply awesome!
I could continue, but, all good things must come to an end.
Three cheers to you Marti!  You did good choosing your team....

Hi Marti,

I wanted to thank you for your help selling our condo.  It is a rough market, but you and your team did a good job helping us out.

I was especially grateful for the help Debra provided in coordinating all of the small and large items that came up on the inspection.  That was above and beyond what i expected from a realtor.  She made it easy for us - and it would have been a real chore to arrange the contractors from Illinois.

Thanks again,

Bob and Christine Blinn

Happy Dave Ramsey Client!I found Marti through Dave Ramsey's recommendation. We loved the website and the fact she has so much experience in the industry. Our feelings were right. She sent a professional photographer out which gave us some of the best pictures on the internet. The floorplan layout was also a great touch that I haven't seen during my internet shopping. We listed during one of the worst times for real estate and sold our house in 5 months! We had a great experience with everyone in the office and were relieved to sell our house so quickly. Marti comes highly recommended. Thanks!!!Marti,I do sales work for my art business. A good work ethic makes the difference in a good market and a bad market. People remember and they have a circle that expands your circle. 
I did my homework and decided to give you the listing before you even walked in the door of my townhouse. My neighbors all know your name, your web site is top notch, your office is courteous and efficient, and you advertise on Glen Beck radio.  Plus you pulled off a sale for me in 4 months. That's pretty darn good in spite of all that I have dealt with.
Thank you again for your help!

Dear Sir,

This is in regard to the recommended ELP, Marti Hampton, Realtor in Raleigh NC in 2009, when we badly needed help.

I asked for your advise to recommend someone in our area at the time, and you recommended Marti Hampton.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The house was on the market for 7 months w/o any offer, and Marti sold it in 7 days.

What we were the most impressed and convicted that Mr Ramsey himself would recommend only those who share in his values of integrity and professionalism. Marty and her team proved it.

We were the most pleased with his recommendation and her services.

For that we are very grateful.

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.
