Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Thomasville, NC

Amanda is amazing! She was very patient with me during the entire process and made sure that she was always available whenever I needed her. She helped me craft an offer on my house that resulted in a fantastic deal. My emails and texts were always answered quickly and she was incredibly patient with all of the questions and worries that I had as a first time homebuyer. If you need to buy or sell a house, go with Amanda. You won’t be sorry!

Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Leland, NC

John was the most helpful and respectful realtor. We worked with John during the most critical time of the Covid Pandemic. Having to do things virtually with regards to buying a new home, was stressful to say the least. However, John made the process smooth and enjoyable! He was extremely responsive to all of our questions. He took the time to show receptive properties virtually and clarify anything that was needed to give us a better understanding of the property. Our experience was successful! We found and purchased a beautiful home, where we are making endless memories. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience we shared with John. We highly recommend him to anyone. We have already given his name to friends and family. We hope to work with him again in the future!

Bought a Condo home in 2021 in Calabash, NC

We met with Seth in 2019 when he showed us condos in the Calabash area. On that visit, we didn’t find what we were looking for. We never forgot Seth because he was great. He was friendly, no pressure and understood what we were looking for. We continued to look on line and in 2021 we found what we wanted. There was no doubt who we wanted as our agent, Seth Barbee. We were truly blessed to have found him, Seth is EXCELLENT at his job. We don’t hesitate to recommend him. You, too, will be pleased with his work and work ethic.

Bought and sold a home in 2021 in Sunset Beach, NC

We recently used Sarah for a sale in 12/2020 and a purchase in 08/2021.
She was excellent, always available and never kept you waiting for something. She was efficient and knowledgeable. With us being from out of state, she went above and beyond helping with the little things that needed to get done that were really outside the scope of what agents generally do. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent.

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2022 in Ocean Isle Beach, NC

Mandy is perceptive. She devoted her attention to us and our reactions to various homes so she could better understand our goals. She greatly assisted our search towards areas and homes that met our goals. We were never pushed to see any particular home or to make any particular offer to buy. Mandy was gracious with her time and patient with our search. She was responsive to our inquiries regarding developments, communities, and homes in addition to numerous other questions we had along the way. Once our offer to purchase was accepted, Mandy helped us even more with referrals for and coordination of inspections, insurance, financing, and more. She is still helping us today! Mandy cares a lot about our happiness and helping us achieve our dreams. This is what sets her apart from other real estate agents

Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Sunset Beach

Highly likely to recommend |5.0

When choosing an agent, we had a vast many that my husband and I knew personally. We decided to work with Mandy because of her hard working, go getter personality. If you are looking to sell quickly, call Mandy. In 2 days, she had our house listed and sold in 4 days with multiple offers. Kirk & I would highly recommend Mandy for your selling needs. She’s truly gifted in this profession.

Showed home in 2022 in Wilmington

Me and my family just spent the weekend being driven around by Seth in an effort to explore the Wilmington, NC and surrounding area real estate market. Seth provided key data on community size, dates of build-out, builder info, and provided a comprehensive list of communities to review in lead-up to our visit. He was responsive on the phone, email, and text. With Seth’s guidance we narrowed down our list of choices from over a dozen communities to three, all of them being strong contenders for when we move. We will definitely seek to work with Seth when it comes time to purchase property.

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2022 in Ocean Isle Beach

We received Seth Barbee’s name via a Zillow inquiry for. Property on Ocean Isle Beach. We were skeptical but so very glad we with him! He helped us purchase a great home. He was knowledgeable about the area and was super helpful even after the purchase was done as we are not in the area full time. We would highly recommend him!

Agent: Seth Barbee

Bought a home in 2020 in Belville, NC

The BEST! We got him by sheer luck! We were contemplating buying land and building. A year and half prior to buying. When we decided to get serious and look for houses, we had already looked around. My husband told me of one more house. We were at the house and saw a sign in the yard, called, and they sent Johnnie. He’s the nicest person you will ever meet. Honest, very helpful, not pushy, and knows the business!
We really appreciate all he did for us,
The Deans
