Another happly client offering their testimony...

My business has been built upon repeat clients and referrals from past clients.  I am very happy to share with you two recent testimonies from past clients and repeat clients.  I have truly been blessed with the best people to work with in my real estate business.  Thank you all so much for your continued support and recommending me to your family and friends.  It is truly appreciated.

We most highly recommend Dawn Stultz as your realtor in the Outer Banks. We started our relationship with Dawn in 2010 while searching to purchase a vacation rental home. Dawn's keen real estate acumen directed us to an area which we loved, could afford and could make a little money as a summer rental. We have been so happy with that decision to buy, that we decided to move to the Outer Banks. We chose Dawn again in 2012 to help us find the perfect residential home. She knew our tastes exactly and found the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. We absolutely love our home and are very appreciative of all the time Dawn spent with us to make it a pleasant experience. We have recommended Dawn to several of our friends who are comtemplating purchases as well. We are grateful we found Dawn and say without any hesitation she is a wonderful realtor and a better person.

Sincerely,

John & Robin Hearne

 

Dawn was recommended to us by a friend who already owned property on the Outer Banks. We discussed our expectations with Dawn and she immediately began looking for properties that met our needs. Because we had a three hour drive to view homes and are very busy with our businesses it was important that our time was well planed and the home shown met our requirements. After one visit of viewing homes Dawn was able to zero in our style and expectations. We found early on when there is a good deal you need to pull the trigger because there are many buyers looking for the same. Several houses that came on the market during the week that we planned on viewing on the weekend came under contract and were accepted before we could view. Dawn will lead you through those deals worthy of consideration and guide you on "best buy deals". She also has a vast knowledge of the area and will let you know of areas to stay away from, such as areas with erosion. Dawn is not pushy, she provides the facts and helps lead you to the decision. We are very pleased with our purchase and have had great success with rentals.

OBX Real Estate Sales Take a Summer Dip

Summer is the traditional start of the slow period in real estate sales on the Outer Banks. Which makes sense. Showing a rental property is almost impossible in the summer, and owners donít want to give up the seasonal cash flow. So it comes as no surprise that the June statistical report from the Outer Banks Board of REALTORS (OBAR), using data from the Outer Banks MLS, indicated a year-to-date slowdown in sales. But the overall trends continue to look good compared to last year. Continue reading ...
