Our Testimonials

We were completely satisfied with Kim. Kim went above and beyond traditional real estate agent responsibilities. Besides all the normal and big things that she did to help us sell our home she also did so many small things to help that made our home more marketable. She was very knowledgable in every aspect of the process not only giving valuable information, but most importantly sharing her insight into making the most of every part of the sale of our home. She was incredibly patient with me and treated our house as special as I thought it was. At all times Kim was encouraging that the house would sell, and encouraging with all the extra things that we did to the home, since it was an older home, to market and finish the sale. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in selling their home. I am sure that she is just as accomplished, sensitive, attentive, knowledgable and persistent in helping someone find a home and I am happy to recommend her for that as well. On a personal note, I will miss having to work with her as I enjoyed working with her immensely and greatly value her opinions. I always felt that she was working "just for me" even though I knew that she had other people she was working with. Kim made me feel that anything I had to say was important and responded to messages quickly, cheerfulliy and competently, never keeping me waiting to hear back regarding our home. Anyone would do well to have her as their Real Estate Agent.

Laura is a motivated go getter, She does not hesitate to do whatever it takes to make sure that the selling and buying process goes smoothly and quickly. I have worked with many realtors and Laura has far outdone all of them with her effort and eagerness to make sure every detail is taken care of and that I was taken care of. If you need a Realtor that will work hard for your best interest there is no question you need to see Laura.


Jacob is extremely professional, reliable, and honestly a no-brainer to use as your agent. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and will 100% use him next time we are buying or selling a home.
Meeting Jacob for the first time as first-time home buyers was nerve-wracking, not knowing what to expect from the process, but Jacob answered our questions so well and made us feel so comfortable that going with him as our agent was a no-brainer.

Great personality, professional in every way. Would highly recommend Laura for any area of real estate.


My husband and I first met Michael Johnson, after finding a house we wanted to see in the Raleigh area. We didn't know what to expect or who we were meeting, but I'm glad it was Michael; he was so gentle and patient with me, and I had him going all around the triangle area, I told him what I was looking for and he did his best to take us to the homes that came close to what I wanted, and finally we found the right one. Only about a week later. Thanks Michael, for all the you did and for being there for us, even when you knew we were working with limited funds. Yes! I would recommend him to my family and friends!


Christine helped us buy our first home and could not have been better. She was extremely attentive, and timely with all of her responses. We absolutely needed her help with a difficult sale and multiple negotiations and she was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. She went above and beyond all of our expectations for a realtor, especially as new home buyers. We will definitely be using her again for any future home buying/selling!!

Laura helped me find and close on a rental property in Chapel Hill. I was impressed with her knowledge of the market and her attention to detail. Most impressive was her high level of service and follow through. And she was on time for all appointments, which was important to me as I had to travel from 2.5 hours away each time I went to Chapel Hill.


Buying a house is stressful. However Jacob made the experience enjoyable and stress-free. The way he shows a house was perfect for someone such as myself. Any questions I ask he quickly got the answer back to me. Jacob will be my agent for as long as we know each other.

Michael is the best! You couldn't find a better realtor, highly recommended, He will answer any question, any hour of the day, no matter what. Will laugh along with you, very personable! And doesn't candy-coat anything, tells it like it is. As if he is buying the house, will look at everything, not just stand around waiting for you to look, then leave. We cant say enough!!!

-Steve/ Helena

Our Closing! He communicated everything so well. It could have been overwhelming for us as first time home buyers but Jacob made the experience easy going and pressure free. We knew exactly what we were signing and felt prepared because of Jacob!

One day, after Mr. Michael Johnson, took my wife and myself around for literally four (4) hours, perhaps even more on that day, looking for a house. I was at the point where I myself was saying to him that I thought that he had done enough for that day. We got to a lot in Wake Forest, that both my wife and myself liked. And as we stood there looking around I began speaking to Mr. Johnson, about my financial situation which to be truthful I am not proudful about one bit. Considering my age, and the length of time my wife and I have worked and yet our financial condition sucks, forgive my english grammar. Mr. Johnson, stood there and listened to me rant and rave about this matter, without as much as saying one single word. His eyes full of tears but yet he did not cry. He knew that I was hurt and ashamed of my situation, but not once did he as much as give me an idea that he did not care. I will never as long as I live forget that moment in my life, never. Mr. Johnson, then said to me after I dried my eyes from the tears that I shed there in front of him, he said to me, Oscar, we will do all we can to find you a home, I promise you that. Well, on December 31st. my wife, Carlota Belmo, Mr. Nelson Estrela, of New Penn Financial, Mr. Hamrick, the Attorney, Mr. Michael Johnson and myself Oscar Belmo, were at the table for closing on the home of our dream. Thanks to the effort of so many hard working people and the Grace of God. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our heart. We love each and every one of you. God, bless you. May God, bless and keep each and every one of you.


Jacob is one of those agents that goes above and beyond to ensure that you, the buyer, have all the knowledge needed to understand the buying process. His personality paired with his customer service experience and knowledge of the current real estate market makes Jacob a great agent. After working with Jacob, you can tell that his main goal to make sure that his clients are buying a house that they will love. He walks you through each page of the inspection report, will do extensive research on the value of the house, and did a fantastic job negotiating with the seller's agent, etc. I cannot recommend Jacob enough as he truly has a passion for helping his clients!

My name is Dee. Laura helped us find our new home in one of our favorite neighborhoods. She REALLY went over and beyond for us with negotiations. She was able to have all of our demands met plus more. She made us comfortable with the whole home-buying process. She answered any questions no matter how many times we asked them (sometimes the same question). She would explain everything to us in a way that we could understand. Just out generosity she found us discounts on services that we could use like the inspection. Even once we closed on our house she still would check in on us to see if we needed anything.


It was by far the best experience we have ever had with a realtor. We spent 8 years, while working with different realtors, on our way to home ownership. Kim provided the best support, ethics, and care to help us find the house we considered home. She has become like part of the family. We just can't say enough good things about her! Thank you. PS- When we sell, we will be using Kim again!!


My husband and I decided we wanted to buy our first home and we started looking online for homes and started calling a few realtors. Some of which were not very professional, and did not really go at the fast pace we were wanting. I found myself being uninformed, stressed, and with little homes available. That is until, thankfully, my husband and I met Kim, and the buying process changed completely. At first, Kim met with us to see a house at our convinent time, and she already had a few more houses ready for us to go see. This impressed me a lot since other realtors would only show what I requested. Kim is an upmost professional realtor. She went over lots of information we had no clue about, and she communicates at all times, and answers all questions at any time. She really had our family's best interest at heart. I know other realtors we talked with just wanted us to check THEIR website for available homes. Kim NEVER dropped the ball on us and always worked so hard doing above and beyond what we expected. She wanted us to really love our home. We had lots of bumps in the road regarding different aspects of our loan and Kim really helped fix all of those and really made the process go smoothly. If you are looking for a professional, hard working, agent, I would totally recommend Kim! She really goes the extra mile for her clients.
