Amy was instrumental in making our first home buying experience as smooth and successful as it was. She held our hand every step of the way - insisting on a honest and eyes open approach to every decision we made. She took her time to make sure we understood and were comfortable at every turn. When we found a house we fell in love with she went above and beyond to help us get over the finish line. The home buying experience can be a very stressful and complicated process but Amy made it easy for us to trust her which allowed for a surprisingly enjoyable, often very funny journey. I can't recommend Amy enough!

We bought our new home with Amy's help. She was amazingly helpful to us. We were new to North Carolina. She spent two afternoons driving us around to show us different areas that we might want to focus on. She definitely helped us narrow down our search. We looked at a lot of houses. Amy was always happy to take us 'on to the next one' until we found the home that was just right for us.

Her knowledge and experience were very beneficial during the offer/negotiation phase as well. She helped us through that every step of the way. We can't say enough great things about Amy and highly recommend her!

Amy was great to work with as a realtor...She did more than most realtors would do during the process--she even mowed my lawn when I was out of town on business and couldn't get to it before the house was shown. She is extremely professional, yet highly personable...Fast and efficient, Amy made selling my house and buying a new one a very simple and pleasurable experience

Amy helped us look for a home in Durham in the fall of 2017. I cannot say enough about how helpful and easy to work with she was. Amy is all about what's best for her clients. She'll go out of her way to make the house search as comfortable and unpressured as possible. I highly highly recommend her whether you're buying or selling.

Amy was a dream. In the Durham housing market I was quickly losing hope that I would find my home. Thankfully she was able to find it for me! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. From start to finish she was amazing.
