Robert Schult

Clara is a complete real estate professional in every way. Clara has assisted me in a number of ways in sales and in leasing. On all occasions Clara provided wise and clear advice which was extremely helpful in meeting my desired goals. I greatly appreciate her negotiating skills which are second to none. Just as important is Clara’s ability to always be available, not sure how she does it, but it is incredible. I highly recommend Clara to anyone looking for the best real estate professional.

Spencer McKeehan recommends Kendra Reich

We can't say enough about Kendra. She was completely professional and a joy to work with in the process of buying our new construction home. Kendra went above and beyond by helping us keep an eye on construction as we were relocating from out of state. Always kind, professional and responsive to our questions. We would (and have!) recommend her to anyone.

Tara and John Patton recommend Marina Sneed

My thanks to Marina Sneed of Berkshire Hathaway. Best realtor ever and while she sold the house in two days above asking price, she also stole my heart and someone I will call friend. She was with us at closing and talked me down many days when I was emotional. Thank you Marina. I love you and cherish our new friendship.

Mike Gibbs recommends Adrienne Priest

We used Adrienne to both Sell our existing and Buy our new home. Adrienne is far and away the best Realtor we have ever worked with. Would highly recommend her without hesitation. She left us always feeling comfortable that everything was handled through every step of the process - I can't emphasize enough how wonderful it was to feel that way through what can be a very stressful process. She handled appointments, followed through on everything and managed a complicated home inspection issue. Very professional, with attention to detail. She also has a wealth of CLT metro area knowledge and many reputable contacts for whatever may come up.

Cathy Ramirez recommends Debra Kasey


I have worked with Debra for over 3 years looking for a home. We were renters so every Spring I would start our search for our "Perfect Home". Debra was fantastic throughout the entire process, very knowledgeable about every aspect. On top of the process the entire way from the offer to the closing. Always thinking of us first- are we happy, and thinking of our finances- are we comfortable with the price. She is the best!!!!! I will recommend Debra to my friends and family looking to buy a home.

Rachelle Watkins recommends Cara Bailey

Executive Director

Cara is amazing to work with. She look for houses for us daily and would call with the latest and greatest ones and advised us what would work best for our family.

Vernetta Willer recommends Erika Mason

HR Consultant

I've known Erika for roughly eight years as a friend and coworker. We worked together on a few projects when she was in the HR department at Carolinas Healthcare System (now Atrium Health). What impressed me most about Erika was her attention to detail. To this day, my department continues to utilize a work sheet she developed to keep us on track when working on large projects. For example, our Diversity Symposium with over 1300 teammates attending each year.

Erika is an amazing team player, she treats everyone with respect, regardless of your background, culture or socio-economic status. She is courageous and does not shy away from difficult situations of conversations. I have no doubt that Erika will be an amazing realtor and will continue to make her family, friends and coworkers very proud.

Sheryl W Smith recommends Erika Mason


It is my pleasure to write this Letter of Recommendation for Mrs. Erika Mason. As I have known her all of her life (full disclosure: she is my daughter!), I am most competent to speak on those characteristics that make her such an exceptional person.

Erika is both reliable and honest; you can depend on her to "do what she says, and to say what she'll do." I frequently solicit her assistance with various programs, travel ventures, family activities, etc., and she is always upfront about her availability and the extent of her commitment. If she is "on-board" with a request, she can be depended upon to follow-thru and to be fully- engaged in the effort.

Erika is professional in her attire and demeanor. Like her mom (!), she thoroughly enjoys (and has an appreciation for) looking her best - especially while at work. She has a wonderful eye for color and composition and is sensitive to the extent of both in her clothing and accessories. She abides by the fashion rule: if you have to ask if anything you're wearing is "too much," it usually is!

Regarding her demeanor, Erika has a way of making you feel that your conversation and/or issue is as important to her as it is to you. Whether by phone or face-to-face, her strong listening skills and ability to dissect information are admirable.

Finally, I would like to think that the "Apple doesn't fall far from the tree," so to speak but truthfully, my daughter, Erika, is every bit of her own person - whose spiritual footing is solid, whose devotion to family is enviable, and whose determination to "be her best self" daily is self-ascribed.

For the reasons stated above - and more - I would strongly recommend Ms. Erika Mason as your Real Estate Agent.

Nicole Kaminski recommends Rhonda Taylor

If you want a realtor with a heart choose Rhonda Taylor. If you want a realtor that answers all your phones calls and every single text, choose Rhonda Taylor. You can see where I'm going with this. But this is my truth. Rhonda was a godsend to me! She came into my life during a very crazy uncertain time and made the process of moving (out of state, mind you) so seamless. I was working a 40 hr job at a law firm and working odds and ends jobs for months to make this move happen. I got lucky enough (I say that cause are personality totally meshed which really helped) to have Rhonda help me in finding a new home here in Charlotte. At first I thought a realtor isn't for me I'm renting. Then I thought I dont need a realtor i can do this myself (boy was i wrong)! I showed interest in a property (not the place I currently live) that paired people with a realtor who happened to be Rhonda. By the end of our first call I was glad I didnt get nervous and decline her services! She helped me breathe easier thru this ?whole ordeal! I cant explain what a relief it was having someone on my side! I was hundreds of miles away and hrs away too! So visiting places in Charlotte site unseen was scary but the reality I was facing since i was determined to relocate back to Charlotte. Rhonda went to homes for me and took pics and videos of places. She took notes of things that needed to be addressed! She cared; she listened; she was attentive; but what I really like and admire about Rhonda is she genuinely cared about helping me achieve my fresh start! Now I didnt go into detail of just how horrid the past 6 yrs were but I did bring it up a time or 2 just how much I needed a change, a new life, a fresh start. Rhonda fought for me and my new life like she was fighting to change her life for the better! She cares about her clients as if their needs are hers. She came in to my life on Sunday April 14th and by April 27th (well it was an adventure getting here so it was more like the wee hours on Sunday April 28th) that I was moving in to my new one level condo in Charlotte! Rhonda helped me find a beautiful home within my budget; that was dog friendly with a fenced in patio; has 2 dog parks nearby; all in an ideal location! She even negotiated the pet fee from $800 (I have 2 dogs) down to $500 for them both!!! Believe you me that $300 saved has been an absolute blessing!! Bewteen the uhual; movers; utilities (new and old ones; and the obvious expenses that come with a new place, that $300 has been food for my dogs and myself to live off as I look for a job! I know my post is long but I sincerely hope you all read it. Cause it's real and honest and it's from the heart. Its exactly like Rhonda Taylor. And in my humble opinion, there's not a more caring qualified realtor around! So whatever your needs are, I hope you'll choose Rhonda Taylor. I promise you, you won't regret her coming into your life! I know I haven't!

Jim Lawton recommends Debra Kasey

Pro Services Specialist

Debra Kasey was fantastic! Debra was personable, friendly, very professional and tireless in her quest
to finding us our forever home. My wife and I were very pleased with Debra’s expertise in real estate,
she would point out the pluses and minuses of the different homes she showed us. Once our offer was accepted Debra did the rest. We just had to sign, electronically, the required documentation and Debra handled the rest keeping us informed through the whole process. We whole heartily recommend Debra

Ronnie Ramsey recommends Debra Kasey

To whom it may concern:

I have worked with Debra Kasey and her Husband, Jack Kasey , for a couple of months to buy a home. Debra showed me she was in a class of her own.

I have been blessed to have known you and your husband. She was patient , knowledgeable of Gastonia area and helped us find a great house in a wonderful neighborhood.
Debra was the most professional I have ever used and I would never think of using another team. First , she set up e-mail of real estate listings with the criteria I have. And I will send her a listings any time day or night and she will respond withwi the hour. If she could not make the appointment her Husband Jack would be there.

Debra make the entire process from start to finish feel effortless. We still find ourselves waking up and thinking how lucky we were to work with her. And finally they are not only professional they are a pleasure to work with

Mike Patterson recommends Shannon Fioretti


First off let me begin by acknowledging homebuying and selling for that matter is the greatest and most stressful purchase you will ever make. I found Shannon's info online and made a call the next day. Shannon was very knowledgeable about our area of interest and I knew from the first 5 minutes she was the right realtor for us. Shannon took the time to listen to our needs as well as our budget. The whole process was made seamless from Shannon paying attention to every detail. Not only did Shannon treat us like a family member, she also made us feel like her only client. I could go on and on, but would definitely recommend Shannon to anyone else for all of their acquisitional needs.
