Peter & Heike Eigenmann recommend Cara Bailey

Head of Sales

Last year we moved from Germany to the Charlotte/Waxhaw are and Cara was our Realtor Agent. She helped us from overseas via phone calls and emails to find a rental home in the school district we wanted to be. She did such an excellent job and was amazing throughout the whole process. We couldn't have done it without her.
We knew that we only would rent for 1 year and than buy a house in the same school district.
When it was time to start looking for a house to buy, it was clear to only go with Cara as our Realtor Agent again.
She always listens to what your wishes and needs are and makes sure she will find the perfect home for you. Cara was always right on when a new listing came up. Cara is very experienced, has a lot of knowledge and guided us through the entire home buying process with an ease. She knows her business and is also a wonderful person with the heart in the right spot. Cara was always helpful and got back to us in a short time.
We couldn't be happier with our experience working with her. She also referred us to our mortgage lender. Cara knows also a lot about the area.
We always would highly recommend Cara to anyone who is looking for a house you want to call home. She definitely found the perfect home for us!!!

Nicole K. recommends Rhonda Taylor

I know I previously posted how I worked with Rhonda when she helped me move from Tn to Charlotte, finding me and my dogs the condo we currently reside in. But I wanted to give an update. I have an autoimmune disorder and as such my bones are fragile. In a freak accident I thought I rebroke my right leg and possibly dislocated my knee in the process. With no family here and having recently just moved here so not having made any friends yet, I was taken to the ER via ambulance all alone and scared fearing the worst. I had just moved here to Charlotte for a fresh start and to continue on rebuilding my life. So the prospect of losing my independence all over again was so unbelievably crushing. I was really scared and in so much pain. Well it turns out I'm ok it was just a bad sprain, nothing a leg brace and then a subsequent knee brace couldn't fix to give my body the time to heal on it's own. Well Rhonda had actually texted me that day before I heard the pop on my leg. She often texts me and asks how I'm doing. So when I got her text as I was in bed crying unable to straighten my leg or bare weight on it, I was understandably not in a great headspace. But Rhonda helped me to stay calm and not fear the worst. That is was all gonna be ok and assured me I wasn't alone. She said she would come visit me in the hospital and true to her would she came and visited me that night in the ER! I hadn't had food so she even stopped by Panera to give me my favorite grilled cheese and avocado sandwich so I could eat and not get sick with the meds I was getting at the hospital! She stayed with me that night as I cried about my predicament and lamented all I had been thru fearing starting all over again meant more surgeries, rehab, and therapy again, all when I was literally and figuratively moving to Charlotte to stand on my own to feet again! Rhonda was there for me when I was scared and alone and showed great kindness, compassion and empathy! And she had nothing to gain from it. Its just her natural desire to help people. She brought me home that night from the hospital and even dropped off my meds at the pharmacy that night and came by the next day to bring them to me! I write this honest and updated review to show others what kind of person she is! She is a wonderful realtor who genuinely cares about people and has a heart of gold! In Tn I worked at a real estate firm as an executive assistant and none of the realtors ever went above and beyond for a former client like Rhonda has! And that's not a knock on them. I know they had busy lives. But so does Rhonda. And yet she still made the time to be there for me so I wouldn't be alone and so scared. I sincerely hope this review helps others who are looking for a real estate agent! There are a million realtors I'm sure here in NC. But why not choose the one who looks at you and treats you like a human being and a life long friend? Why choose a realtor who just looks at you as dollars signs for a commission? Choose Rhonda Taylor because for her being a real estate agent is her calling. It's how she helps people and that's her #1 driving force. If you choose Rhonda, she will truly go above and beyond for you! And you will surely have a friend for life in the process of getting an excellent real estate agent!

Selling a home is not a simple process yet Julie makes it seem simple. She does a tremendous amount of work prior to listing the home that really pays off. She is incredibly knowledgeable and guided us through every single step of the process. She sold our home in 11 days and had multiple offers.

Richard Wilde recommends Robin Nitsche

VP Marketing

Robin is the most dedicated and professional realtor I have ever had the privilege to work with. She goes above and beyond to make sure you have all the information you need to make a good decision and uses her wealth of knowledge and resources to help move the process along. Robin helped us get into our new home and sold our existing home. She did such a wonderful job helping get our house staged for sale that it went under contract in 1 day!

I highly recommend Robin if you are looking for a new house or selling your existing house. You will not find a more dedicated realtor who knows what they are doing.

Todd Haley recommends Rick Jordan

Owner- Todd Haley and Associates

To Whom It May Concern
I am writing to endorse and support Rick Jordan as your selection of a Real estate Broker for your sale or purchase of a home.
Our company SEAM had over 12 properties that we had held on to for many years just trying to make it through the downturn of 2007 through 2010.
With the recent market we wanted to see if we could sell all of our properties within this year. Rick has accomplished more that what we have expected including selling all but one with we are not just listing due to getting a tenant placed into another home. Our priority in selling was to make sure to take care of our tenants during the process and Rick went above and beyond on this aspect as well. Rick worked relentlessly on selling the homes but also basically manage our properties during this year. Rick’s efforts are unbelievable and I strongly recommend you choose him to help you with your real-estate needs.

Roxanne Bennett recommends Laura Werb

I was beginning the process of selling my home when my husband died of a heart attack.. Laura stepped up just like an old friend or family.. She not only physically helped pack up my house but brought her family too as well. She spoon fed the process to me and put up with my erratic behavior.. I don’t think I could have survived the last few months without her.. once my house was on the market she had it sold in nine days.. She is not only a realtor but a kind and caring friend.Her sence of interity and her trait of having the best interest of her clients is a tribute to the kind of person she is. Not only did she sell my home in a timely fashion she has become a lifelong friend.

Svenja Wagner recommends Robin Nitsche

Faculty Associate

Working with Robin was an excellent experience. My husband and I were first time home buyers and living in Arizona, but looking to buy a house and move to the Charlotte area. We never once traveled to NC during the entire process because Robin was so accommodating and trustworthy. She video called us in to view houses, she was incredibly quick with her response times and attention to paperwork. She checked in with us frequently and kept us up to date on everything. She always made me feel welcome to ask her a thousand questions. She is very knowledgeable about home values and what adds to/subtracts from the value. She had a keen eye for many things around the house, all of which later showed up on the inspection report, but Robin had already picked out so many details about the house and kept us 100% informed. She communicated with all involved parties for us, kept explaining to me what was happening, and I honestly cannot imagine having bought our first house without her help. In addition to her professionalism and expertise, she is a kind and positive person to work with and only reduced the stress of buying a house for us.
