Joe Graham recommends Maggie Hutten


This is the first time I have been involved in building a spec house and hiring Maggie was the best thing that has happened so far! She has far exceeded my expectations! Maggie is so involved, especially since the house is still under construction. She continues to stay involved in the selection process, since now it is a custom home, as she was able to secure a contract before we even got the sheetrock in! Cant say enough about how great this process with Maggie has been! Triple Kudos!

Sam Thomas recommends Jenny McLeod

Market Manager

We recently relocated to from Ohio to Raleigh due to a company transfer. In dealing with my relocation firm, we were lucky enough to be assigned to Jenny and Amy. If you have ever been through a relocation, you know that it can be extremely difficult on a family while making the transition. Jenny and Amy were amazing and did everything they could to help us find a place my family could call home. There was a lot of back and forth to get the seller to accept the offer, which is fairly typical these days and I could not imagine having a better team on our side fighting to help us get the deal done.

The team was thorough, patient and extremely caring and that did not stop once the sale was closed. My wife was surprised by Jenny and Amy a week ago with a welcome gift two weeks after closing just to make sure we were settling in.

In a world of computer generated "Thank You" notes and follow up, it is awesome to know that there are folks like these two ladies working to add a caring and personal touch to what can be a stressful experience.

These ladies ROCK!

Chris Boyer recommends Casey Godwin

Deputy Athletics Director

In the time I have known and formerly worked with Casey, I have seen her compassion, commitment, service-oriented attitude, and determined drive firsthand in a variety of settings. Casey has consistently impressed with her passionate pursuit of successful results and strong relationships in the things and with the people that matter most to her...and, nothing matters more than her customers and clients.

Sue Pendleton recommends Kathy Ridick

Huge kudos to Kathy! We started out wanting to look for a rental since we were moving from out of state. Even though it was not the norm for her, she said she would help. (And even though there wasn’t much upside for her.) Then on a dime we decided to buy. And what a whirlwind. Everything was a fast turn-around with a very slow seller (not the normal homeowners, but Zillow). Getting them to respond or react was like pulling teeth. We are so thankful for Kathy’s sage advise and her ability to guide us through a not-so-typical home buying process. She really went above and beyond for us!!

Pamela J Wenning recommends Kathy Ridick

Medical provider in psychiatry in Wilmington, NC

Kathy Ridick went above and beyond the measures necessary to market and sell my family home in Raleigh. Kathy and her husband Bob make a terrific team and are available from the first meeting until closing. For me and my family, this was an emotional sell since it was my family home after the passing of my father. She was there no matter what hour or question, always professional and yet personal, when I needed it most. The journey was as pain free as possible. She assisted my husband and I with staging that we did not know how to do- even coming in at the end and putting her personal touch on this precious family heirloom. Her service and professionalism sets the mark above anyone I have ever worked with and one for others to follow. We had our first offer with the first showing and signed the contract in just three days. I would recommend her to anyone for any size or price of their property. I am forever grateful.

AJ Desai recommends Tonya Felmly

Tonya was a great realtor to work with especially for us being first time home buyers. She was recommended to us by a colleague and I'm glad we decided to work with her in finding our house that matched our needs the best. She is very hard working, diligent and is with you to address questions throughout the entire process. I would recommend Tonya to anyone moving to the triangle area or looking for a house here. Thanks!

Ellen was very thorough and helpful every step of the way. Even at the beginning when I wasn't ready to buy. She stuck with me from beginning to end. All times of the night to help me. She stayed on top of everything and got me the best deal possible. I am very thankful for her help.

Darryl Banks recommends Susan Napolitano

Financial Advisor

Susan is the most professional and knowledgeable Real Estate agents with whom I've worked. Her market analysis was on point - in fact she nailed the expected selling price in her market analysis and we placed the house under contract in three days. Susan was closely involved throughout the subsequent inspection and closing processes, which really helped make it easier for my wife and me. I absolutely recommend Susan as my agent of choice for all future transactions!

Stephen Baker recommends Jamie Buckley

As first time home buyers we expected the process to be confusing and stressful, however the moment we met with Jamie we knew that would not be the case. From our first meeting to the last paper we signed, she was nothing but understanding, comprehensive with questions (and we had a lot), and most importantly, she kept it fun & incredibly low-stress. There was never a point where we were unsure of what was happening or what needed to be done - she kept us updated every step of the way! We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Raleigh area.

Mark Jackson recommends Susan Napolitano


Susan was fantastic in helping us with our home search. She was very thorough in asking what we were looking for and provided many options for our needs. After selection was made she explained all the details and handled the purchase with ease.
We had a relocation consultant involved too and Susan was knowledgeable of the whole process. Her professionalism and experience in the real estate market made our home purchase a breeze. I would recommend Susan to anyone looking for a home.

Kristin Treadway recommends Mary Ivey Stewart

Mary Ivey is honestly one of a kind. We were referred to her by a friend back in early 2018 when we first decided to start looking for a home in Raleigh. Although we had a very loose time-frame for moving to the area, she was patient and remained in contact with us, sending us homes that matched our criteria and checking up on our plans periodically. When we were finally ready to put in an offer in early 2019, Mary Ivey was diligent in making sure our offer was a competitive one, and made sure to keep us in the loop every step of the way. Not only was she key in helping us find the perfect first home, but she became a friend along the way as well. She is not only an excellent realtor, but a kind, compassionate, and honest person, and I would be confident referring her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. Mary Ivey truly cares about her job, her city, and her clients.

Patricia Herman recommends Helen Tam

My husband & I were relocating from Florida. Helen had done such a wonderful job helping my daughter & son-in-law find a home, that we knew we wanted her to be our realtor.
Helen met with us initially to give us an overview on all of the areas in Raleigh & outlying areas, as well as share the history of Raleigh. She explained all of the steps that we would need to go through when we found a home. She is very detailed oriented. As a realtor & resident of Raleigh for over 30 years, Helen is a wealth of knowledge regarding builders, housing materials and neighborhoods. I can’t tell you how many areas & homes Helen took us to see. I know it’s her job, but she made us feel like we were her only clients. When we found a home, Helen helped us work through the maze of inspections, even providing recommendations for inspectors, who who all great! Helen was always responsive, communicative, professional & pleasant. Having Helen throughout the process was a pleasure!

Emily Bolt recommends Libby Azzarello

I am confident that Libby treated me like any other client - like a friend and a top priority. I can't recommend her enough. Whether a first time home buyer like me or not, Libby has an ability to pick up on what you want and what you need and help you get both. She was so helpful and awesome to work with!

Lauren Hill recommends Libby Azzarello

Libby helped me buy my first house and got me to closing in record time! I was sure about the house I wanted and needed to move ASAP. Libby helped me put in a successful offer and close in a matter of weeks. She demystified the entire home-buying process for me, stayed on top of details, and worked her network of contacts to make sure I could move in lightning fast. Libby was always very friendly, accessible, happy to answer questions, and easy to work with. On top of that, she's super sweet and thoughtful. I love my house, and I'm so grateful for everything Libby did to make buying it possible. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent!

We were so thrilled that we had Missy on our side for both selling and buying. Thanks to her hard work we got several offers above asking price the first weekend our home was listed, and closed in only 6 weeks. She also helped us find a new house in a hurry. We never could have pulled it off without her experience, familiarity with the market, and responsiveness. Missy used to work in the corporate world, and it shows! Super smart and professional... oh, and nice, too! Highly recommend.

Project Manager

George was absolutely amazing to work with in finding us our *DREAM* home! He is so incredibly patient, flexible, understanding, and truly has his clients' best interests at heart. He helped us every step of the way with the home buying process, which can definitely be very daunting. He was always more than happy to add further context for clarification, provide his honest and thoughtful opinions, and ensures that he's setting everyone up for a successful experience. George, thank you so much for helping our family!

Rand Williams recommends Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices York Simpson Underwood Realty - Raleigh - North Hills

Managing Director

Diane was great to work with in helping us sell our townhouse recently. We had to strategize and decide on some small upfits which allowed us to get top dollar on our home. I was doubtful about the upfits making a huge difference but as soon as we did them, the house sold in a day! Not only that, she made it so easy by helping me get multiple quotes from contractors and coordinating the whole process while watching over my dollars. I would recommend her to anyone considering selling or buying a home, you will be very satisfied.
