I can't thank Dora enough for the smooth way in which she handled the sale of my home. From start to finish she was with me all the way---keeping in touch (almost daily) throughout the process. Her presentation and marketing strategies were top notch. I strongly recommend her for all your real estate needs.

We had unimproved property on Lake Gaston on the border between Virginia and North Carolina. She did research on comparable properties and helped us set a good price for our site. She made flyers to help advertise our property. She was successful in selling our property where previous realtors had not.

Dora was amazing in helping our family get to the lake! We initially met Dora on a rainy Sunday when we visited Lake Gaston for the very first time. Not only did she show us a listed home, but she taught us a lot about the Lake Gaston community. She listened to our goals and ultimately helped us secure a property that gets us to the lake sooner than later! I cannot say enough good things about Dora and her professional expertise!

She was the greatest and would highly recommend to anyone buy or selling a home, a true professional. Both my wife and myself were very pleased with the personal contact and updates as the process went forward.

Dora is a professional Realtor with a warm and caring personality . She is very hard working, responsive and goes the extra Mile to make her customer happy. Dora found my perfect next home to retire to and it wasn’t on the market! She spoke with the owner who was contemplating to sell and well, she made it happen. I’m so impressed that I will retain Dora to sell my current home.
Dora has been such a blessing to work with and I look forward to our on going working relationship and friendship!

Dora was very helpful with our second home/lake home search. I had called several agents, and many were unresponsive or uninterested in helping, Dora was ready to help. I am a licensed agent in NC and purchased a lake home in Virginia. Dora was helpful in explaining the process, which is different than in North Carolina where I work as an agent. She recommended vendors for inspections and service we needed even after the purchasing. She was quick to respond and helpful in negotiating on our behalf. I would highly recommend Dora and would choose her again. I have already recommended her to others. She is very knowledgeable about the lake area and her expertise made for a fun and smooth transaction.

Dora was completely professional, kind, courteous, prompt, and just a downright nice person and was a pleasure to work with. She kept me up to date on the pricing, marketing and demand as the complete selling process took place. My next property transaction will be done by her again. If she didn’t answer the phone when I called, she phoned back shortly after I left a message. She is great to work with and again, she will be our agent for the next property that we buy or sell.

Wonderful job! Wonderful results ! Bough property through her . She is a great communicator and will promptly call back when messages left . She knew how to get in touch with the seller and help communicate changes to the closing date multiple times . No doubt we would have not gotten the property if it hadn’t been for professional attitude and drive to satisfy and help her clients . We are truly thankful to have had her help us ,and HIGHLY recommend her to others !
