What Our Sellers Say

"Katie Joyce is experienced, mature and knowledgeable. She also has a calm and steady presence, a desirable and even necessary quality for dealing with a first-time home seller who has lived in the same house for 46 years! Katie was responsive to my questions and concerns and worked with me closely throughout the entire process, from first to last. She also treated me and my property with great respect, with full attention."

—Judith | Agent: Katie Joyce

"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

"Sudi is competent, knowledgeable and resourceful.  A pleasure to work with."

—Cynthia | Agent: Sudi Swirles

"Susan is thoughtful, knowledgable, friendly, supportive and non-intrusive."

—Geof | Agent: Susan Peak

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

—Helga | Agent: Ann Cavallito

"Jennifer was honest, upfront, positive and aware of the area."

—Judythe | Agent: Jennifer Nichols

"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

"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 has helped our family buy and sell at least six properties in the last six years. She is now a dear friend who gives good advice on real estate and Durham in general. She is always looking out for us."

—Jeffrey and Carson | 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

"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."

—Kelly | Agent: Katie Joyce

"Susan's service is perfect! She listened, understood my needs, kept me posted, did a lot of “leg” work, was available when needed, explained all details, was encouraging, and handled my total house sale! Susan was great to work with and always a pleasure to see. "

—Suzanne | Agent: Susan Peak

"What more could anyone want from their listing agent than what we got from Laurie? I’ll list all the positives but honestly, I don’t think the words will do her justice. Knowledgeable, competent, professional, honest, diligent, a creative thinker, genuine and thoughtful. She is honest and to-the-point while at the same time diplomatic. A true professional who genuinely cares. Laurie is extremely knowledgeable about the industry in general and more importantly and specifically about the local market. She does her homework! No stone goes unturned – from how to enhance curb appeal to thoughtful staging to the physical “health” of the house to the loan process which in our case, was anything but straight-forward. Laurie does not miss a trick (or a leaky faucet) and attends to every potential hiccup so that there are no surprises when the inspection is done or when an offer comes in. She truly went above and beyond for us. We were out-of-town owners with renters living there during a pandemic with extremely limited ability to show the house. In the midst of all that, she went to the property to meet landscapers, driveway repair people, locksmiths and more. She even potted plants for the front terrace and made sure they survived, stopping by to water them in the blazing heat of a NC summer! Despite all the complications thrown at her, Laurie didn’t falter, didn’t waver for a moment, and kept us reassured. She persisted through it all and GOT THE DEAL DONE. Anyone can feel confident they have the best of the best with Laurie as their agent."

—Anne and Tom | Agent: Laurie Myer

"Dede was awesome.  She is so smart and professional.  She knows how to do her job better than anyone in the field.  I have extremely high expectations and Dede certainly met them in every way."

—David | Agent: Dede Hall

"We are thankful that we had the guidance and expertise of our agent in selling our home. Without our outstanding realtor the whole process would have been so overwhelming. Susan advised us on how to stage and prep for the showing of our house so that its unique attributes were accented. She was always available with helpful advice, answered questions, made recommendations and kept us informed throughout the process. We are happy sellers!"

—Vickie & Charles | Agent: Susan Peak

"Jane is great. She was very responsive through the home selling process. Very happy!"

—Joe and Amanda | Agent: Jane Phillips

"I worked with Clementine Cigna as a realtor and have nothing but positive things to say about her. She was professional at all times and a pleasure to work with. If she said she would do it, it got done."

—WMG | Agent: Clementine Cigna

"Jennifer is the single BEST Realtor® I have ever dealt with. She is awesome. Have already referred to her. The BEST. She made our challenging situation simple. We love her."

—Diann and Charles | Agent: Dede Hall

"We absolutely love working with Dede Hall!! She helped us buy our house in 2015, and sell it in 2020. She had all the records from before and remembered almost everything, and since we were moving out of state with a new baby, she also had a guy lined up and took care of everything! From the moment we met back up to discuss selling, she put our minds at ease and did a great job guiding us through the process. We got our house sold just in time before the COVID lockdown thanks to her!"

—Kaitlyn | Agent: Dede Hall

"Jane's enthusiasm for my house, her suggestions for showing, her real estate knowledge, her prompt responses to my questions, her obvious experience and help with negotiations. Also the South Carolina connection and the fact that she was so easy to talk to."

—Cecilia and Dana | Agent: Susan Peak

"She stuck with us 100% in a very difficult selling market.  She was even, clear, skilled, diplomatic and very attentive. Quick to respond as well, likeable, hardworking, a good person and a good Realtor.  I recommend her highly and appreciate so much that the house did indeed sell!!!"

—Robert and Sarah | Agent: DJ Maniace

"Katie was the consummate professional throughout her interactions with us. She listened carefully to our concerns and always offered us objective and candid advice delivered in a most friendly and supportive manner. The advice she gave us on preparing our house for sale and on setting the asking  price was spot on, enabling us to sell our house at a great price the first day it was on the market. 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. We definitely give Katie high marks and would recommend her to anyone seeking a realtor."

—dmwbutler | Agent: Katie Joyce

"Dede Hall guided us through the process of selling our house and made the experience seamless! All questions answered, communication was timely, advice was thoughtful from an experienced agent. She did a lot of the leg work and arranging of things, and we only had to follow her lead. We feel we got top dollar; couldn’t have done it without her!"

—Dana and Cecilia | Agent: Susan Peak

"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

"I was very satisfied with the whole process of the lead-up to the sale and the sale and results thereof. Katie made just the right suggestions for improving the property without spending too much and provided a wonderful workman. She is clearly very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the process. She even shopped for many of the extras to enhance out home."

—Judith and Lewis | Agent: Jane Phillips
