Jesse Smith recommends Bryant Brantley

Manufacturing Engneer

Bryant has been a family friend for many years and when it came time for my wife and I to purchase our first home we knew where to go. We were relocating from about 2 hrs away and Bryant always worked to make sure he could show us houses when we had time. Most of of the time when we gave little to no notice and he was always contacting the sellers and getting us into houses within 4hrs of when we told him what we wanted to see. Bryant helped us to see aspects of homes that we hadn't considered but always assured us that the he would support any decision that we made. He never pressured us to make a decision and was great to work with. When it came time to make offers he was always in our corner and always worked to make sure that we got the best deal possible. Bryant was fantastic to work with and we will definitely use him again in the future!

Savannah and Bryan Hayes recommend Melinda C. Burnett


Melinda assisted us with the purchase of our very first home three years ago. We were so impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of real estate and VA loans that we chose to use her again this year for the sale of that same home. She exudes confidence during the entire process and I trust her completely. If Melinda ever doesn't know the answer to something (which is rare), she will find out for you and get back to you very quickly. Our home sale went off without a hitch and I am so very thankful that we used her for this transaction. She's our realtor for life and I will recommend her to everyone that is looking for an amazing realtor.

Jessica Timm recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Me and my husband were on the search for our first home when I ran across a home that Melinda was selling. We meet up with her at the house and the first time we meet she was very nice. When we decided that this was the house we wanted to buy she was very helpful throughout the process. Whenever we had a question about thing she was there to answer it or if she didn’t know the answer she would get us the answer. We are loving our new home as first time home buyers and we have Meldina to thank for that!

Sabrina Bowman recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Melinda does such great work as a realtor! From the beginning process of discussing selling my house, throughout the entire process, Melinda helped me every step of the way! Selling my first house seemed like a scary step, but Melinda made sure I always understood paperwork, terminology, and all the other fine details. She is such a great and trustful person when it comes to buying/selling a home! I highly recommend her!

Jackie Garcia recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Melinda is a wonderful and very professional agent! As a first-time buyer, I had no clue what to expect or how the process would be, but Melinda was so patient and very active in answering questions and explaining every detail. She goes above and beyond to satisfy future homeowners or home sellers. I appreciate her so much and recommend her to anyone that is looking for great service and satisfaction.

Jessica Cooper recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Melinda was recommended to me by a family member. Although I already knew Melinda, I had no idea how much she would help my husband and I with purchasing our first home. My husband was deployed overseas while I searched for our new home, and she was with me every step of the way. I felt so comfortable knowing that she advocated for our best interests. She went above the call, and I would highly recommend Melinda to anyone in search of a home.

Andrew Frye recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Project Manager

Melinda was wonderful to work with!! In the original home visit she brought a team member and they both made recommendations. It took me several months to prepare my house but ultimately it sold way faster than I expected and at a higher price as well. I will be recommending her to anyone looking to sell their home.

Laura Pardue recommends Bryant Brantley

My husband and I were very fortunate to work with Bryant. He was quick to accommodate whatever needs we had and made the purchase of the property a trouble-free process. We simply could not have had a better experience and are very grateful for efforts on our behalf.

Seth Shouse recommends Bryant Brantley


This was our first time buy a home. Bryant was recommended to me by a co-worker that has used him for years and I am glad we choose him! He was very professional and on top of the entire house search to purchase process. He is very knowledgeable and will give you his honest opinion about the properties. We never felt like we were forced into buying a home. I will definitely use him again in future!

Phil Goble Jr. recommends Bryant Brantley


We did not think twice about who to get to represent our home for sale! Bryant was great to work with, kept us informed along the way and helped us through closing. We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell -- or buy -- a home!

Misty Cooke recommends Melinda C. Burnett


Melinda was awesome!!! Selling our house was very stressful and she helped us every step of the way. She always answered all of my questions and told us what to expect, the good and the bad. She represented our best interest during the process and we couldn't be happier. She went above and beyond and gave us direction when buying our house, even though it was for sale by owner and she wasn't the realtor in that sale.

Schae Cox recommends Melinda C. Burnett

Melinda Burnett (who just so happens to be my mother) was the best real estate agent we could have asked for. She made this new experience for us such an easy process. She made our wants/needs a priority and took care of everything we needed as quickly as possible. I couldn't recommend anyone better for the job!

Rob and Kristie Szarpa recommend Bryant Brantley

We just moved to the area and met Bryant as we were searching for land to buy. From the moment we met Bryant he was friendly, helpful, and responsive. He is a pleasure to work with and we plan to refer him to our friends and family.

David L. Tilley Jr recommends Melinda C. Burnett


When my Fiancé and I began looking for homes we didn't know where to start. We turned to Melinda for help and she put us in the right direction from the beginning. Her effort to make sure we found exactly what we were looking for in the shortest time possible is amazing while staying within the budget. Without her assistance we would still be looking at the market today. We are extremely pleased with her and all that she did for us. I highly recommend Melinda to anyone who is either buying or selling property!!

Ron and Naomi Magadieu recommend Melinda C. Burnett

Melinda was awesome! She is the only agent I would contact if buying a home. She is very compassionate and puts herself in the buyer's shoes! We can't thank her enough for all she did to make our buying process as smooth as possible! SHE IS THE BEST!

I work on Elevators

Bryant did a great job. You couldn’t ask for a better person to work with. He keeps you up to date on all information. And if he doesn’t have the information he will get it.

Dave Gollon recommends Bryant Brantley

Bryant was a very good agent from the very first time we met him until we closed escrow.He did a wonderful job of informing us of how things worked in North Carolina which is different from where we came from.He was very patient with us in our search for a home and he also has a good sense of humor.

Sheryl K. Melvin recommends Sandra Richards


How can I begin! Sandra stopped by one day as requested by a friend. I informed her of my two real estate needs. One was the sale of a property in Winston. She immediately listed this property on multiple real estate sites. In less than TEN DAY, there was an offer. In LESS THAN A MONTH, there was a full price offer!!! She was enthusiastic and very diligent in representing me in this sale! I would recommend Sandra for any real estate need, hands down!

Jack Ciancio recommends Bryant Brantley


What I found most interesting about working with Bryant is that I never felt I was being "sold" something. By that I mean there was never any pressure, no nagging emails or phone calls to push the sale on me. And yet he was always readily available to answer any questions or meet with me. He was helpful in bringing things to my attention about which I just didn't know to ask. I felt Bryant was more of a partner in the process rather than a salesman. What better recommendation can I give than that after making a land purchase through Brantley Realty I asked Bryant to be my realtor for the future sale of my home.

Ingle Armstrong-Sloop recommends Sandra Richards

Sandra was extremely helpful to our family in purchasing just the right home. She was very flexible in searching for, arranging appointments and getting answers to our questions. I would happily recommend her to anyone searching for real estate.

Dennis and Gayle Riggs recommend Melinda C. Burnett


From the time we started looking for a home in Surry County, Melinda was always willing to assist. Once we decided on the house we wanted, Melinda was very instrumental in negotiating with the seller for the items we requested. She was always willing to meet with us when we wanted contractors to give us quotes for work we wanted completed if we bought the house. This was valuable time away from her personal time or work time that she was not required to do. She was always willing and never complained about the time.

We highly recommend Melinda as a realtor to anyone searching for a home in this area. She will give you a 110 percent of her effort to make sure you are satisfied.
