Alexandra Alcantara recommends Patty Topakian

Creative Producer

Patty has helped us with three homes now. Our first was in 2014 when we moved from up north and she was an excellent resource and partner in the moving process. She ran errands for us as we were not able to do much from so far away. We ended up in a great neighborhood close to all we needed which was great to establish roots in the area. She was attentive, very friendly, knew the area and had great recommendations. Smooth process, even when dealing with difficult sellers on closing day.

The 2nd home was for my parents and again she was excellent with her communication and follow through. She was always available to answer our questions throughout the process. Smooth process.

Our most recent purchase was our upgraded home. This was a year long process of viewing over a dozen homes and always keeping our options open. She was always very attentive, diligent in her research of the home and area, and was always flexible with her schedule to come and meet us for a viewing. She has been our rock during a difficult mortgage process where we had to switch lenders after our close date due to incompetence of lender. Her recommendation of a new mortgage banker and lender saved the day and got us into our new home! Couldn't have gotten through without her.

Thank you so much Patty! Always our #1 choice!

Katherine Chandler recommends Christine Molloy


Christine helped us find a fantastic investment property. With properties selling so quickly, she was very proactive in getting us in to see properties very quickly. She coordinated the inspection and repairs and we were able to close in a few weeks. Wonderful service!

Krista Scalia recommends Patty Topakian

SVP/Quality Control Operations Manager

Patty is amazing! She has helped us with both buying and selling homes. She guided us through the entire process and left no question/concern unanswered. Moving can be stressful in general but Patty made everything a breeze. I would recommend her to anyone! Go see Patty

Angela Harshaw-Lockett recommends Patty Topakian

REMS Coordinator

OK!!! Do you have 100 STARS, because 5 is not enough. There aren't enough great words to explain who, what, how, when, where of Patty. My sister used her and "loves her some Patty" as she says. So of course, I made her my choice. Now I have purchased two homes in the past, and had used the same realtor, but wanted to go with Patty and so glad I did.
Customer Focused - Always there, I thought I was her only client even though I knew I was not. This is how she made me and my husband feel.
Accountable - What ever she said, SHE DID !! Time scheduled, she was there before. Call needed, made before you even knew it. What do you need, already had it done before you even thought to ask for it.
Ethical - Did everything in a manner of so much respect, so much integrity, so much trust, so much dignity, so MUCH PATTY. I love her, I really truly do. If she needed my kidney, she could have it. When is the surgery, I will be there.
All of the tools she uses to run her business, from DocuSign, to assistants there when needed. I'm in tears because there are no words good enough to explain Patty.
Sincerely Angela Harshaw-Lockett

Dierdra Ricks recommends Tokiya Ball


I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tokiya Ball during my home selling and buying process. She has always had a warm disposition and readily provided her time and guidance. Deciding to sell my home was initially a daunting task but Tokiya eased my mind with her real estate knowledge and expertise. I am appreciative that I had the opportunity to work with Tokiya and that she consistently had my best interest as a #1 priority!

Kristy and Randy Shepler recommends Jessica Holland

We can't thank Jessica enough for the dedication she has shown us through our home purchasing endeavor! Not only does Jessica have immense knowledge of the housing market in Raleigh and the Triangle, but when we had questions- she had answers, and when we ran into conflicts- she had solutions! We truly feel like she has been our warrior and our protector through the entire home-buying process. We highly recommend Jessica to anyone searching for an agent with expertise in real estate, yet the caring, kindness and loyalty of a true friend. We love Jessica!

Aubrie Lewis recommends Tera Boyd

Stay at home mom

I could go on for hours about how amazing our experience with Tera has been. After buying our first home my husband and I both felt like we didn’t truly understand the details of the process and we knew we wanted to be more in the “know” the second time around. Tera has explained and guided us every step of the way. She helped us through the (very difficult) sale of our previous home and today we are closing on the home of our dreams. She has answered a million questions, written down notes when I would have never thought to, made follow up calls for me when I just didn’t have time, and listened to my kids screaming in the background of our phone calls and not cared one bit! She is fun, thourough, helpful, kind, and very knowledgeable. I can’t recommend her more! If she is still in the business when we move again in 15-20 years, I can’t imagine using anyone else. Thanks again, Tera, for all you’ve done for us!

Erin Alles recommends Tera Boyd


Tera was wonderful, and I highly recommend her. Tera is honest and kind and wants the best for her clients. Throughout the entire process of buying my first home Tera was there for me. Even afterwards I knew I could message her and she would help with anything I needed. Tera made sure that my needs came first, even taking calls with me while on vacation. She fought to get me what I wanted and I am so happy with my house. I could not be thankful enough to of worked with Tera.

Reggie Jackson recommends Trevor Smith

Sr. Manager, Pfizer Supply Chain Security

Trevor was an outstanding realtor. He was with me from the beginning of my search process, through a For Sale By Owner (which fell through due to the owner changing his mind), through the search process again, and finally the closing on my new home, which I love! Trevor was very professional and was always willing to answer texts with questions that I had and he kept me informed of everything I needed to know and shielded from things I didn't need to know nor cared about (as lawyers emailed legalese during the closing process).

Paul Sy recommends Patty Topakian

Patty has been such a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and knows her stuff. I was a first time home seller and need someone to hold my hand and guide me through each and every step from start to finish. She did just that a more. She recommended great contractor for home repairs. She was able to sell my house in 2 days! I would recommend Patty to friends and family. I am happy to say I will be doing business with her in the future.

Jesus Moreno recommends Trevor Smith

Trevor is my go-to agent. I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home, he will get the job done! I put him to the test by asking him to find me, negotiate and close on a house in 30 days...He made it happen in 25! He is definitely a quality agent.

Keith Strombotne recommends Patty Topakian

Director of Development

Patty and her team were amazing! She made the process so easy and enjoyable. The market was super competitive but she worked hard to show us multiple listings, and eventually we found the right one. We did not have to worry about anything!

Anne Marie Rogan recommends Lauren Colvard

This was my first time buying a condo. I was very nervous and I didn’t know what to expect. Lauren really took the time to determine my needs and what would be best for me. She was extremely helpful during the entire process and kept me up to date on everything. I really liked how attentive she was when I had questions, because she took the time to explain things. Thank you so much Lauren!!

Kyle Thortsen recommends Leslie Wright

Director of Tennis

This was the first time my wife and I have sold a home. We could not have had a better experience than the one we had with Leslie. She was extremely thorough walking us through the selling process. From the professional photos taken of our home to negotiations with potential buyers Leslie’s communication and readiness to help was very impressive. Ohh yeah and our house sold in ten days. Thanks Leslie for your hard work and making this process so easy for our family!!!

Sonja and Joseph Scalia recommends Patty Topakian

I am a secretary to a Supreme Court Justice and my husband is an attorney at law.

My husband and I were looking for a home in North Carolina and Patty Topakian was our realtor. She helped us find a beautiful home. We were from out of state and had little time to look for a home. When we met with Patty to view homes, she was well organized and constructed the day to view efficiently the types of homes we wanted. She was extremely knowledgeable and was very efficient about obtaining information needed to make a wise choice in a home. We had a wonderful experience with Patty because she was so good at her profession. She took care of everything and we closed on our home without any problems. We highly recommend Patty. Not only is she knowledgeable, experienced and ethical, but also, she was simply a pleasure to deal with.

Tina Miller recommends Patty Topakian

HR Director

Patty worked with me to find a townhome for my daughter as well as help me prepare for and list my current home in Durham, NC. I have never encountered anyone in the real estate business that was more available, prompt and timely regarding all aspects of the buying and selling process. She made my daughter feel comfortable as a brand new home buyer and has been in constant communication with me as we schedule and get feedback on my home that is for sale. She knows her stuff - in and out - and has done all of the leg work for me and my daughter. Thank you Patty for an exceptional buying and (hopefully soon) selling experience!!
