“Ellen was a true pleasure to work with! She was upfront and honest during the entire purchase process, from looking at homes to the closing date and beyond. She was extremely helpful, going above and beyond what I expected from a realtor, and extremely knowledgeable about local laws and guidelines. Ellen made my out-of-state purchase very easy and as stress free as possible. When I need a realtor in the Outer Banks again, I’ll be calling Ellen!”
“We would like to thank and commend our realtor Ellen Heatwole for helping us find our perfect beach home in Corolla. By chance she was the first realtor to respond to an inquiry we had on a house we had seen online. From the first time we spoke on the phone with Ellen, we knew we had hit the jackpot. Working with a client that lives 10 hrs away, is a first time vacation home buyer and has very limited weekend time to come see homes can be a challenge. Ellen researched homes that met our requirements and sent us listing updates almost daily. Within a few days notice she always able to set up 8-10 houses for us to view over a weekend. When a house of interest came on the market and we were unable to make the trip down, Ellen would go tour the home and send us video. She picked up very quickly on what our needs, taste and style were which really helped in our search. We always felt as if we were her only client and that 100% of her time was dedicated to us alone. She never seemed bothered or annoyed with the countless calls, emails and texts she would get from us almost daily. Ellen started as our realtor, but by the end of the 3 month process became our friend. If we ever sell or buy again, she absolutely would be our realtor again and would give her the highest recommendation possible to anyone looking for a realtor.
A heartfelt thank you Ellen!!!”
