My family is in an unusual situation in our endeavors to purchase a home in the Durham area. Dea has been more than willing to help. She is knowledgeable, competent, and dedicated. When I have needed information she gets back to me in "record time"! When showing me homes she is organized, and aware of my time schedule. Dea has never kept me waiting, she arrives with a detailed map and information about each home she has scheduled. I look forward to purchasing a home with Dea's help and I am confident that she will represent in an honest and trustworthy manner.

I have collaborated with Dea Irby on several projects. She is professional in every way, personable, and knowledgeable about her area of expertise. If I lived in her area I would hire her as a real estate without hesitation. Anyone who works with Dea will confirm my thoughts.

Sincerely,

Dea worked closely with us to find the perfect place! She listened to our needs, always had great suggestions, and kept us on track through the mortgage process to closing. She is always upbeat, very knowledgeable about the market and a true pleasure to work with. I felt that Dea was looking out for us in the best way possible. My husband and I have gone through many sales and purchases of homes. Dea made this home purchase run as smoothly as possible. We couldn't be happier with what Dea did for us.

During my teen years, Dea's influence in my life helped develop my current creativity and stick-to-it-tivity. This woman can turn a bona fide disaster into an opportunity and then monopolize on it and turn it into a success. She doesn't just see what's there, she can see what can be.... and possibly around corners! I can imagine that her creativity and perseverance would only help anyone working with her.

Dea is outstanding!! We came in with some pretty unrealistic expectations and came out with all of those exceeded! Dea got things done in a tight window and went above and beyond at every turn. I seriously do not want to think of how things might have gone down had we had another agent

When Dea says 'By your side, all the way', it is not just a catchphrase, but a genuine internalized mode by which she conducts herself while in the service of others.

When my significant other and I were in the process of searching for a home, Dea was given to me as a personal recommendation; honestly, I cannot imagine having been served by anyone else because I believe we were placed into the right hands.

Dea managed to take a complex process, that is, sourcing a home within our budget range, and turned it into as painless of a process as I can imagine it could possibly be.

She was always on top of things, and never missed a beat! We were in constant contact at every step of the way, and it absolutely made the difference.

We just closed on our first home last week ; we could never have done it if it were not for her diligence and dedication.

Dear Irby is by far one of the most thoughtful and genuinely kind people I have ever known. She approaches each day with purpose and will accomplish her goals through prayer and planning. She has opened her home to so many through the years. Her home is welcoming and comfortable no matter where she lives. Each time she has moved, she has found a way to keep that sense of "home". She will do everything possible to get to know you and help you find the perfect home for your family!
