Brooke Randall recommends Andreea Alexandrescu

Client - Buyer

We were moving from out of state and had a short timeline to find our new home in Fort Mill, SC. We utilized the referral resource from Berkshire Hathaway and was matched with Andreea. She is a fantastic realtor! Andreea is professional, friendly, patient and an active listener. Prior to our arrival, Andreea sent us potential homes to consider so she could best understand what we were looking for. Once we arrived, Andreea had home and builder appointments scheduled for us. She was immensely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and buying our home. We highly recommend Andreea as a realtor!

Marie Nichols recommends Adrienne Priest

Adrienne was fantastic - she asked the right questions and listened to the key features that were important to me in the purchase of a home in Charlotte. She made the entire process enjoyable - and she stayed involved every step of the way from the search through the offer and the closing. I could not have asked for better service or for a better realtor. I highly recommend Adrienne to anyone who is buying, selling or relocating!

Peter J Forbes-Smith recommends Andreea Alexandrescu


My personal experience, and my association with Andreea over a period of more than two and a half years has been one of the utmost professionalism. Andreea is both very knowledgeable and competent in all spheres of real estate, and is extremely thorough in all she does and attempts.
She has earned my trust and respect and I have complete confidence that she will will carry out her professional responsibilities properly and with appropriate discretion. I have no hesitation whatsoever in giving her my highest recommendation!

Wayne Wallace recommends Subashini Hirschler

President Augusta Coating and MFG

I live in Augusta GA and listed a home in Rock Hill SC with Subashini Hirschler. She is much more than just a relator. She became a family friend. A lot of effort went into determining the listing price. Living out of town, there were certain things that needed to be done to the house before placing it on the market. Subashini facilitated everything from minor repairs to yard work for me. We listed the house at price at the top end of the market. With her expertise in staging the property and attention to detail, it sold the very first day for full price. She then continued to facilitate the process for me all the way through closing.
She is simply amazing!!!!!

Rishen Kumar recommends Jason Culbreth


I had a terrific experience working with Jason on my house search. As a first-time home buyer in the US, it was important to have an advisor I could trust while meeting my criteria on the house aesthetics, layout, school district etc. Jason was very proactive and honest - actually dissuaded me from buying a couple of homes where the roofing/HVAC needed significant upgrades or where there was evidence of water stagnation/flooding - things that I did not notice. We finally got a home that met all our criteria and we are very happy with it. Jason continued to be engaged with us after the sales helping out with recommendations on various services like plumbing, electrician, gutter cleaning etc. Would definitely use him for the next home we purchase.

Carrie Pope recommends Debra Kasey

Debra is hands down the best agent to have on your team. She made the home buying process easy and stress free for my family. I have worked with other realtors before, and communication was always my biggest issue, but her communication exceeded any expectations I could have had. My family was always made to feel like we were a priority, and will always recommend Debra to anyone looking for an agent.

Kirsten Gantt recommends Debra Kasey

Marketing Manager

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Debra to purchase our town-home! From the very beginning of our home-buying experience, Debra was prepared, quick-to-act, and very knowledgeable about the entire process. She helped us find our home within a week of contacting her! And she stayed with us throughout the entire process to ensure that all of the involved parties were taking the necessary steps to prepare for closing. I would absolutely recommend Debra to any home-buyer, especially a first-time home-buyer like myself.

Shuta and Somaly Kim Wu recommend Carrie Freedman

UNC Charlotte

Carrie was awesome. She handled everything quickly and was always available for questions. Her extensive experience really shows and was vital to our home buying experience. You can be a Type A gung-ho or a laid back couch surfer and Carrie will be perfect for you.

Janet Rivett recommends Debra Kasey

Debra goes above and beyond whether representing a buyer or seller. She has a high level of experience, professionalism, and positive attitude. She walked me through the process of buying a house then 1.5 years later selling that house in order to purchase another one. She is extremely easy to talk to and readily available to answer questions and assist in any way she can. In every instance, Debra listened to my concerns or needs, confirmed her understanding, and then proceeded to smooth the way.

I was particularly impressed (and extremely grateful) when it came time to visit the national home builder's design center to select flooring, lighting, and colors for my new home. Debra was right there at my side helping to negotiate preferences and costs.

I trust Debra's judgement and advice and do not hesitate to call her even now when I have real estate questions. I view Debra as my friend as well as my real estate agent.

Marc and Carol Stammer recommend Shannon Fioretti

Division Engineering Strategist and Chief of Staff

Recommendation for Shannon Fioretti

... our recent Home purchase was our sixth, concluding our fifth corporate relocation over a 30 year period. The home-finding process through the offer and closing was the smoothest we’ve experienced. Shannon’s dedication and thoroughness was a key contribution to this successful move. She’s knowledgeable of the area, took the time to show us a variety of options, listened to our preferences, and made the search process enjoyable. She stayed on top of the closing process, keeping all stakeholders informed of the status along the way. This insured the closing went off on time with no last-minute crises. She came recommended by multiple colleagues who were relocating at the same time. We’re happy to add our names to her list of references.

Jason Eberhard recommends Adrienne Priest

Adrienne was fantastic to work with and made the home buying process so easy for my wife and I. My wife and I were relocating from the northeast and we had a lot of questions about the area and surrounding communities. Adrienne's knowledge of the area was invaluable and she took the time to understand our needs and and only showed us properties that suited us. Adrienne was always available to answer questions via phone or text right up until closing and even beyond. In the end Adrienne found the perfect house for us and went above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. We would definitely recommend Adrienne to anyone moving or relocating to the Charlotte, NC area!

Yvette Grant recommends Karen Brunelle

Executive Assistant

I started my home buying experience with Karen in April of this year. I recently moved to Charlotte and was not sure what area I wanted to live. I gave Karen the specifics of what I was looking for and left it in her capable hands. I am not sure how many properties I saw but it was in excess of 20. There were times I'd find something I thought was a good fit; she'd set up the appointment and off we went. After months, I found my amazing home. It was the first property I saw on my very first outing with Karen.

You'll enjoy working with Karen. She's an amazing realtor and go getter.

Peter & Heike Eigenmann recommend Cara Bailey

Head of Sales

Last year we moved from Germany to the Charlotte/Waxhaw are and Cara was our Realtor Agent. She helped us from overseas via phone calls and emails to find a rental home in the school district we wanted to be. She did such an excellent job and was amazing throughout the whole process. We couldn't have done it without her.
We knew that we only would rent for 1 year and than buy a house in the same school district.
When it was time to start looking for a house to buy, it was clear to only go with Cara as our Realtor Agent again.
She always listens to what your wishes and needs are and makes sure she will find the perfect home for you. Cara was always right on when a new listing came up. Cara is very experienced, has a lot of knowledge and guided us through the entire home buying process with an ease. She knows her business and is also a wonderful person with the heart in the right spot. Cara was always helpful and got back to us in a short time.
We couldn't be happier with our experience working with her. She also referred us to our mortgage lender. Cara knows also a lot about the area.
We always would highly recommend Cara to anyone who is looking for a house you want to call home. She definitely found the perfect home for us!!!

Nicole K. recommends Rhonda Taylor

I know I previously posted how I worked with Rhonda when she helped me move from Tn to Charlotte, finding me and my dogs the condo we currently reside in. But I wanted to give an update. I have an autoimmune disorder and as such my bones are fragile. In a freak accident I thought I rebroke my right leg and possibly dislocated my knee in the process. With no family here and having recently just moved here so not having made any friends yet, I was taken to the ER via ambulance all alone and scared fearing the worst. I had just moved here to Charlotte for a fresh start and to continue on rebuilding my life. So the prospect of losing my independence all over again was so unbelievably crushing. I was really scared and in so much pain. Well it turns out I'm ok it was just a bad sprain, nothing a leg brace and then a subsequent knee brace couldn't fix to give my body the time to heal on it's own. Well Rhonda had actually texted me that day before I heard the pop on my leg. She often texts me and asks how I'm doing. So when I got her text as I was in bed crying unable to straighten my leg or bare weight on it, I was understandably not in a great headspace. But Rhonda helped me to stay calm and not fear the worst. That is was all gonna be ok and assured me I wasn't alone. She said she would come visit me in the hospital and true to her would she came and visited me that night in the ER! I hadn't had food so she even stopped by Panera to give me my favorite grilled cheese and avocado sandwich so I could eat and not get sick with the meds I was getting at the hospital! She stayed with me that night as I cried about my predicament and lamented all I had been thru fearing starting all over again meant more surgeries, rehab, and therapy again, all when I was literally and figuratively moving to Charlotte to stand on my own to feet again! Rhonda was there for me when I was scared and alone and showed great kindness, compassion and empathy! And she had nothing to gain from it. Its just her natural desire to help people. She brought me home that night from the hospital and even dropped off my meds at the pharmacy that night and came by the next day to bring them to me! I write this honest and updated review to show others what kind of person she is! She is a wonderful realtor who genuinely cares about people and has a heart of gold! In Tn I worked at a real estate firm as an executive assistant and none of the realtors ever went above and beyond for a former client like Rhonda has! And that's not a knock on them. I know they had busy lives. But so does Rhonda. And yet she still made the time to be there for me so I wouldn't be alone and so scared. I sincerely hope this review helps others who are looking for a real estate agent! There are a million realtors I'm sure here in NC. But why not choose the one who looks at you and treats you like a human being and a life long friend? Why choose a realtor who just looks at you as dollars signs for a commission? Choose Rhonda Taylor because for her being a real estate agent is her calling. It's how she helps people and that's her #1 driving force. If you choose Rhonda, she will truly go above and beyond for you! And you will surely have a friend for life in the process of getting an excellent real estate agent!
