Customer Testimonial

Darlene Boyd

Buyer Rating:

My husband and I have been pestering Darlene for about two years; we're very indecisive. Darlene never showed any sign of frustration and was helpful every single time we called on her. If we wanted to go see a property, she was able to show us something within a day or two. I would recommend Darlene to anyone. - Deseree Wetherington January 2016

Ms. Fordyce continually keep be apprised of each situation and was readily available to answer any questions. For this and previously mentioned statement I would certainly recommend her to anyone that had property in New Bern and was wishing to sell that property - John E. Bugno, 12614 Cor December 2015

Waldeane Giacobbe

Buyer Rating:

Waldeane puts a lot of herself into her job, and her town. She sold me on New Bern in 2008, when we first spoke to her. We couldn't leave Maryland at the time. We kept in touch over several years. Finally, circumstances enabled us to move here.

There are a lot of obstacles to make a move out of state. Every one was overcome, with Waldeane's help.

Waldeane went "the extra mile" through the entire process. - Pat Potter December 2015

Dear Sharon,

This home at 312 North Carolina Drive is the fifth house I have purchased and I must say I have never enjoyed the process as much as I have, working with you.

You are a joy to work with and I will recommend you to anyone looking for a home.

Thank you, very, very much. I wish you all the best.

Marjorie Preis

Seller Rating:

Marjorie Preis is one of the best of the many agents I have dealt with over the past fifty years. She is friendly, personable and showed genuine concern for my needs. She had to handle many of the issues at long distance, because I had to move out before the closing date. I would gladly use Marjorie again, should the need arise. - Frank Boccia, Hendersonv October 2015

Meredith Morse

Buyer Rating:

We happened into Merideth Morse's service after terminating the contract with another Realty Firm that was assigned to us by a relocation company for poor service.

Merideth faced several challenging tasks while we were searching for a home. Challenges with short sales, inspections that led us to drop properties in addition to a pair of picky buyes who werent exactly sure what they wanted and were in mid transition with extreme time challenges.

During all of this she never wavered, became frustrated or exhibited anything but friendly excited deameanor that was focused on finding the right home. This is beyond profesionalism, this is someone who truly loves their job. She was helpful and accesible beyond any expectation.

Anyone looking to purchase or sell in the New Bern or surrounding area would do themselves a favor by directly requesting Merideth Morse. - Trent S. Aiken 1618 Spen October 2015

Cherry Houston

Seller Rating:

Cherry helped us through a complicated sale with patience, understanding, and encouragement the whole way through. She was available 24/7 to answer all our questions. I worry about her because it seems she never sleeps! She is now helping us through a complicated purchase and has never once made us feel worried about her ability to handle it all. Would recommend her to anyone! - Katy Fedchenko, New Bern October 2015

Tully McDonald

Buyer Rating:

We love her, she has become a part of our live forever and we will be always grateful to her in helping us get our first home. A friendship has been built and we truly are thankful for everything she has done for us. Tully McDonald was professional, kind and trustworthy. She made this experience easy, exciting and fun for us. She was very helpful In helping us find out what we needed to do because this was a auction house. With out her help our dream of owing a home might would have not happen!! - Kimberly Whitfield, all September 2015

Jean was very professional and provided accurate and timely information resulting with a 2 week sale of my home. This is the second time I have had the pleasure to work with Jean. - Brenda Maddox, New Bern, August 2015

Michael Raines

Buyer Rating:

Michael Raines did a fantastic job getting us through a difficult transaction involving many people and processes that he normally would not have dealt with. This was a repossession that was suddenly put up for auction. In our frustration, Michael Raines always studied the problem and explained it clearly and helped us through it. - Janet Harris, Jacksonvil May 2015

Gray Wheeler III

Seller Rating:

Gray was a pleasure to deal with; a sincere gentleman with what appears to be extensive contacts and local knowledge. Like many sellers, our family had some challenges with the process of preparing the house (the move etc) to put on the market, and Gray was most understanding and accommodating during this time, and while on the market. Consequently, the house sold in the first 8-weeks. - Clay Thomas - Fort Laude May 2015

Denise Willey

Buyer Rating:

Denise Willey went out of her way to help us not only on this purchase but also on our first purchase in the New Bern area over a year ago. She is responsive, knowledgeable, personable, and very professional. We couldn't ask for a better advocate. - Charles & Janet Craig April 2015

Vickie Littleton

Seller Rating:

Mrs. Littleton was well organized and prepared. She had a plan for this property based on condition and location with recommendations to ensure best possible selling price. We took her advice for small repairs and the staging of the house for showing. I feel it was directly responsible for a timely sell with no major issues during the final negotiations.

Very pleased with the ease of completing documents during the selling process and closing. She explained every line and was open to questions with answers or follow up as necessary.

Her personality is asset as well and would recommend Mrs. Littleton to anyone whom is interested in listing a property for sell or looking to buy.

Thank You! Vickie - Trustee For Property, Ne February 2015
