Testimonials

"

It was SUCH a pleasure to have Jamie as my realtor. As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about the experience and felt like I had a lot to learn. Jamie eased that worry throughout the process and provided me with so much helpful information not only about the homes we toured, but about the buying process. He was able to put information in terms I could easily understand, and I can without a doubt say that I never felt pushed by him to make a decision one way or another. He is honest, trust worthy, and demonstrated such patience as we navigated this process. Best of all- he has a GREAT sense of humor, and made the tours such a fun experience. He also made the paperwork process a breeze. He deserves the highest praise. I will recommend him to my family and friends- he is the best!

—Sharon | Agent: Laurie Hutchings

"This is a high quality organization that works swiftly, effectively, and reliably. They are always efficient and professional, in all aspects of the process of buying and selling a home. Sudi Swirles sold us our first home in 2007, helped us find our second home to fit our growing family, and then sold our first home in a matter of days. She guided us expertly through every aspect of the process, was hands on and thorough, but was never pushy. She deftly intuits what you want and need in a house and helps you find it. I very highly recommend them!"

—Ellen | Agent: Sudi Swirles

"Ann's professionalism is outstanding! Trustworthy-- very professional and helpful in any way. Pleasant, nice appearance! Prompt in taking care of any situation!"

—Helga | Agent: Ann Cavallito

"I worked with Sudi twice while living in Durham. I cannot say enough good things about her. She knows the area exceptionally well. Even better, she lived near where I did and at one point probably 20 years ago had sold my house in another transaction! It was really just pure luck that I was introduced to her. She is professional, honest, incredibly easy to work with, resourceful, and gets the job done. In the two homes I sold with her help, both I got more than a 33% profit over my initial paid price and in both cases got offers above my asking price. The proof is in the numbers with Sudi. You cannot go wrong."

—Jeremy | Agent: Sudi Swirles

"

Considerate… Attentive… Organized… Diligent… Conscientious… Dedicated… Meticulous… Patient…

There are just not enough accolades to describe the amazing job you have done from beginning to end with the sale of our house. There are also not enough words for us to adequately express our thanks for keeping us assured that the sale would actually take place!

"

—Dale and Betty | Agent: James Howard

"On the top of the negotiations process, trustworthy, fun to be around. Really grateful for her service!"

—Roger and Jennifer | Agent: Susan Peak

"Sudi is definitely the BEST realtor I've used yet. She helped me purchase my first home when I was young and had no idea the trials and tribulations of real estate! About a year ago my family planned on moving and decided to go with another realtor not to be named. What a mistake! We spend thousands of dollars and over six months trying to close on a house that we never ended up purchasing. I went back to Sudi and asked for help purchasing our non traditional woods home and it was seamless. Even through a pre planned vacation Sudi was easy to contact and drove the bus on everything! We were charged with very little to do except make the difficult and stressful decision of what place we could build a home in, and for that I am eternally grateful. I wouldn't recommend another realtor in the area before Sudi. Do yourself a favor and start working with her before you cold call anyone else."

—Kym | Agent: Sudi Swirles

"Jennifer worked with us for over 2 years off and on as properties came on the market.  She kept us updated on new listings-keeping those that she knew we would not like off our radar.  Jennifer always kept us in the loop and did all she could to make things easy-which they were!   "

—Stephen and Shelby | Agent: Jennifer Nichols

"Laurie wasn't pushy or over bearing. She was low key, patient, and listened well. She offered sage advice and her opinion but wasn't a lobbyist, pressuring us to a course of action. This was our first transaction and she was a very effective and helpful guide."

—Brian and Carolyn | Agent: Laurie Jahnke

"Katie was excellent."

—Jim | Agent: Katie Joyce

"

We have already recommended PSCP to our friends.  Katie Joyce was a pleasure to work with.  From the beginning, she gave us what proved to be sound advice about what we needed to do to make our home presentable in the most favorable light.  That advice was mostly about how to arrange things, what to have in sight, what to have out of sight.  Her advice was not to spend a lot of money up front other than replacing anything that was obviously broken.  Katie knows the process and expertly guided through what to expect in all aspects of setting price, making the house available for showing, negotiating the final price, working through due diligence, and preparation of the final paperwork.  She communicated with the buyers’ agent in a timely manner.

"

—David and Polly | Agent: Katie Joyce

"We worked with Susan for many years and we trust her knowledge and judgment regarding the local real estate market, especially the Hope Valley area."

—Dana and Cecilia | Agent: Susan Peak

—Scott and Catherine | Agent: Susan Peak

"It was about as perfect as you could possibly expect. Susan is not only a true professional but shared her contacts and information generously.  She is terrific!"

—Kenneth and De | Agent: Susan Peak

—Annie | Agent: Sudi Swirles

—Kenneth and Margaret | Agent: Susan Peak

"Todd was excellent."

—Linda | Agent: Todd Cromer

"We worked with Dede Hall for both selling a unit in May 2018 and then purchasing our new place in February 2019. In selling our old place Dede was expert in working with the tenants who were renting from me, and they commented to me how pleasant Dede was. Dede was great working with us, and incredibly patient, in helping us find what we wanted - rather than trying to sell us on something we didn't want. We're in love with our new place, and would wholeheartedly recommended Dede for any part of a real estate transaction."

—Matthew | Agent: Dede Hall

"Good knowledge of market and very pleasant to work with."

—Rebecca and Jason | Agent: Jane Phillips

"Dede was knowledgeable about our neighborhood. She prepared a terrific brochure to promote our house. Gave us good advice on setting price. The house sold in one day! I was also very glad she had Jane Phillips fill in while Dede was away. Jane was wonderful! Had all the information and helped us deal with some inspection problems. She's certainly an "A" as well."

—Richard and Vicky | Agent: Dede Hall

"Jennifer was an extremely detailed oriented broker.  From the beginning of our relationship she listened carefully to our needs and priorities, she patiently worked with us to view a wide range of homes and non our wishers, she took copious notes and communicated effectively with the seller, and she insured we were informed and well represented throughout the buying process. Jennifer is dedicated and committed to client satisfaction. A++"

—Stephen and Shelby | Agent: Jennifer Nichols

"

Three of my close friends have had great experiences with James Howard as a realtor. They say that he is the most conscientious realtor they have ever dealt with. He kept them informed at each step and worked hard on their behalf. I’ve known James for twenty-four years and am very impressed with his honesty and candor. He is careful and thorough, direct and accurate. Everyone says he makes the experience of buying and selling enjoyable because of his insight and humor. He triple checks everything and you can count on the quality of his work. He is my go to person whenever someone wants a recommendation for a realtor. Real estate is his passion and he genuinely works for his clients. He will work hard so that you get what your property is worth and help you make an offer that’s supported by the market. He will help you stage your property and recommend repairs if you’re selling and advise you on issues concerning a property you’re interested in buying. He is realistic and practical.

Dede cared so much about finding the right home and paid attention to my likes & dislikes that she could tell if I would like a property …on her knowledge of it & my taste(although she would never turn me down if I, sometimes wrongly, insisted on seeing a property).

"

—Charles | Agent: Dede Hall

"I have already recommended Katie to several acquaintances. She has been a great help in the entire process, very receptive to my needs and preferences. Her knowledgeability was also a great resource in negotiating and advising on what would be appealing to the seller but still with by best interest at heart. I would definitely want to work with her in the future."

—Marion | Agent: Katie Joyce

"

Thank you so much for all of your help and hard work through this home buying process. You have always been quick to respond and patient with me as I learned about the home buying experience. I can tell through our time together you are passionate about what you do. I will definitely be recommending you to friends! Thank you again for your kindness, sense of humor, and help.

—Madeline | Agent: James Howard

"We love Susan and your agency. This is our 2nd house she has helped us find/buy and we will keep coming back. She is thoughtful, caring, responsive, engaged and an advocate for home sellers/buyers."

—Elina and Charles | Agent: Susan Peak

"Katie is very knowledgeable and professional. She was very helpful in pricing our house which was not easy due to a lack on comps. She recommended raising the price 100,000 from our original plan and we got a full price offer. When the 1st appraisal came up short, Katie prepared a detailed comp sheet for the second appraisal which came in perfect."

—Robert and Cheryl | Agent: Katie Joyce

"Jane went above and beyond the call of duty on multiple occasions. The many value-added services she provided proved to be our saving grace. We have already recommended Jane! Even before we closed, we put Jane in contact with a friend looking to sell his house. The reasons were many, but in short, her genuine concern of her client’s best interest is evident in everything she does, her honesty and integrity showed in each interaction, her willingness to do what it takes to make things happen is amazing, and her professional knowledge and experience is what makes her a truly fantastic agent. All of the above, and more, make Jane a wonderful person and agent."

—Jonathan | Agent: Jane Phillips

"Katie Joyce is a terrific agent. She represented us nearly six years ago as we were buying a house, and just represented us again for selling the same house, hence we worked with her as both buyers and sellers. Katie knows the real estate business inside out. She knows the local market very well, works effectively with other agents, is facile with the nuances of rules and regulations, and is as nice as they come. We recommend her highly."

Jane is knowledgable, personable, quick to respond, and thorough in her work. In addition, she is fun to talk to and put us at ease from the start. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome to Durham and honestly could not have had a better experience."

—Cal and Lilly | Agent: Jane Phillips

She even shopped for many of the extras to enhance out home."

—Judith and Lewis | Agent: Jane Phillips

"Todd and Dede were fantastic agents! Always quick to respond to email/text, and took the time to explain each stage of the process.

"Jane doesn’t push her clients into any decisions they are not comfortable with, especially during negotiations.  She goes beyond the call of duty in helping clients.

Katie managed the flow of all the necessary paperwork and handled the negotiations with the other realtors in a way that minimized the time and energy we had to spend on these issues -- a huge relief to us.

She also treated me and my property with great respect, with full attention."
