For anyone considering marketing or purchasing a home in Eastern North Carolina, I would highly recommend a visit with Sharon Barnes at Realty World in Beaufort, NC. We were seeking a second home near the coast and, seeing a house we liked, we called Sharon (her contact information was posted on the property) and arranged to view and discuss a purchase. Sharon was most accommodating, showing us the home, providing the history of the property, and providing information of similar properties which were currently on the market or which had sold within the previous year. Though the seller was out of town extensively throughout our "negotiations period," Sharon was always available (night and day) to discuss our needs and issues. Despite issues with elevation survey, repair estimates, flood insurance estimates, etc., we closed on this property 35 days after our initial offer! We not only now know a reputable realtor in Beaufort, we now also have a new-found friend! Thank you Sharon Barnes for easing some of the many obstacles that always accompany a real estate transaction!
