Kathryn Sullivan and Jessica Keys recommends Elizabeth Barry

Faculty Support and Epidemeologist

Elizabeth is a fantastic realtor. She worked extremely hard to get us the house my partner and I needed. It didn’t matter the price range we were working in, she was available to us at a moments notice and continues to work for us even after closing. She made the process easy and fun and she did a ton of the footwork in this super tight Durham market. She recommended good contractors and continue to remain in touch to see how things are going. Can not recommend highly enough and can not imagine having to work with someone else!

I wouldn’t trust my realty needs to ANYONE other than Rashanda! From her valuable experience as a seasoned financial professional, to her patience, knowledge of the market, dedication to being the best, and overall responsiveness, she is the perfect fit for both the experienced homeowner, and the inquisitive new buyer.

Sasha Brown recommends Rashanda McCants

I highly recommend that anyone on the area choose Rashanda McCants as their Realtor. She was highly professional, super friendly & extremely knowledgebale. She listened to what we were looking for in a home and immediately found us several potential properties after we had shopped with a few other realtors with no luck. We felt lucky to find someone who not only understood our needs and what we were looking for but also someone who made us feel at home with her. I could not have asked for better. Thank you Rashanda, we appreciate you!!!

manika07 recommends Susan Hertz

We are so glad that we found Susan, who helped us in buying our first home in Raleigh, NC. We were pretty new to the area and to the whole process but with Susan's guidance, it all worked out so seamlessly and hassle free. She took out time and showed us different neighbourhoods and described pros and cons of each based on our requirements, which really helped us a lot. We loved working with her and would love to work with her again for all our real estate needs. We are also going to recommend her to all our friends who plan to buy/sell a home. She is the best in the marked.

fransteele2 recommends Susan Hertz

Susan is everything we hoped for in real estate agent, and much more. As out-of-town buyers we especially appreciated that Susan is highly professional, exceptionally easy to reach, responsive, proactive, and very well-connected in the Durham community, including inspection, contractors and craft specialists. We were "out of town" purchasers. We talked with Susan by phone and e-mail, and made an exploratory trip to Durham. She gave us a tour of the area and a few houses she thought we might like, and we found the perfect house on this "exploratory" trip. Then, while we lived 1200 miles and a time zone away, she shepherded us from offer through closing - and represented us in dealing with jobs like inspections and estimates that we couldn't manage at a distance. And as closing approached and we began planning renovations, Susan was a font of helpful advice and contacts. Every recommended contractor has done great work at a fair price. She made buying a house from a distance as easy as it could be. We recommend her highly. If we ever sell our house and/or buy another, she will be our agent.

Susan worked miracles on the sale of our Mother’s home. We had multiple offers within 24 hours. Her professionalism, real estate knowledge and calm and soothing manner helped guide us through a timely and successful FHA closing. I was a real estate broker for many years and can attest to the fact that Susan is one of the best in the industry!
