Our Satisfied Clients Say It All…

About Rachel Sumrell

“I moved from North Carolina back to my home state of New Jersey in August of 2017.  Rachel Sumrell handled the sale of my house in North Carolina.  Rachel was very efficient and sold the house quickly with minimum hassle.  I in fact recommended her to a neighbor across the street who was thinking of relocating to Raleigh to be near his daughter.” 

– Elaine Simoneau

We had a wonderful experience with Mercedes!”

About Tony Baca

“Tony Baca is truly one of the best real estate agents we have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  He had our home sold the day BEFORE it was even listed.  He took numerous beautiful pictures of our home show casing its many features.  He found errors which were made 15 years ago in city records that no one else had bothered to check.  We had our home listed for a over a year with another realtor and did not have any offers.  He kept us up to date with every aspect of selling home and is extremely through.  It is unfortunate our second home which we live in and will be soon putting on the market in not in his selling area.  I doubt we will be as fortunate with the next realtor.  We would highly recommend him to absolutely anyone without reservation.

Tony, thank you for all you did.  We both really mean this from the bottom of our hearts.”

Many regards,

— Thomas Umphlett and Susan Kienitz


About Ron Ryan

Excellent service and professionalism by Ron during the two years we searched for our perfect beach house. Ron was always very flexible with timings and availability. He was honest with us and never once pushed us into a decision we didn’t feel comfortable in making. Ron was very familiar with all areas of the Northern Outer-Banks, including Southern Shores, Duck and Corolla. We would highly recommend his services.”

— Kevin and Becky O’Connor


About Brim Silver

“My wife and I grew up coming to the Nags Head and we always dreamed of having our own place to share with our children.  When we finally made the decision to look for a house or a lot to build on, a friend recommended Brim.  She was great to work with – patient, extremely knowledgeable, and she knows everyone!  We scoured the beach for the perfect spot and with Brim’s contacts and inside knowledge, we found the perfect location along Cottage Row in Old Nags Head. We couldn’t be happier with our house and can’t thank Brim enough for helping us find it.”

About Kelly Gorman

“A few years ago my husband and I moved here from Northern Virginia in search of a full time rental. We found a home for sale and called the realtor on the sign, Kelly Gorman and asked if the owner would be interested in renting it to us. Kelly arranged a meeting with the owner and facilitated a rental between us. After 10 months of renting we were ready to look for our forever home. We called Kelly and he was ready right away with about 10 homes to view. He listened to what we were looking for and found us our perfect place. He made the buying process easy and seamless, always available anytime we called or emailed to answer any questions we had. After moving in Kelly painted the Montauk Lighthouse, (my favorite) and gave it to us a housewarming present. Kelly still keeps in touch, calls us to wish us happy holidays and just to ask how the family is doing. Kelly Gorman is a kind person and a great realtor.”

About Dave Hoare

“In my opinion Dave is the Realtor of the Year! My mother, who lived 350 miles from me, had placed her home on the market a year ago. The realtor she hired did nothing to sell her home. The only communication that realtor had with my mother was to tell her to reduce the price. In the end my mother took her home off of the market and felt discouraged. A few months later a friend recommended Dave. She was wary but placed the sale of her home in Dave’s hands. Immediately she was astonished by the action Dave took to get her home on the forefront of the market! He held open houses along with quality advertising. He helped my mom prepare her home for the showings! Who does that? Dave does! When she got an offer and soon after accepted it, the home was inspected. There were a few items on the list that Dave jumped right on. One of the items was debris under the home. Dave crawled under the home to take care of the debris the builders had left behind 13 years ago! That is not all Dave did. After the sale he was right there to answer all questions and provided important information. When I sell my home I am going to have to have Dave transferred to Maryland to take care of business! Thank you Dave for your commitment and hard work! NO ONE IS AS DEDICATED AS YOU ARE!!!”

About Dick & Linda Harper

“…Because we live 350 miles from our ‘soon to be home,’ we depended on you for so many of the details associated with the mortgage, inspection, insurance, utility transfers, etc. Our expectations were certainly exceeded.

About Cherie Beacham

Last year we listed a house for sale with an agent from another company.  Six months passed with few showings and no contract, so we let the listing expire. We then listed the house with Cherie Beacham of Resort Realty and we were under contract in 19 days!  Cherie’s MLS listing was well written, included excellent pictures that showcased the house and she aggressively marketed the house to her wide network of contacts.  She is extremely professional, hardworking and always looks out for the best interests of her clients.  We would highly recommend Cherie to both sellers and buyers.”

— Debbie & Chuck H


About Holly Britt

I never imagined an agent would work so hard for me.  I had a particularly unique and complicated situation, and Holly worked diligently to find the right house and situation.  She ardently fought to get me the right deal and to make sure I was secure in my home and future investment.”

— Jared Buletza



About Cam Foster

“We want to thank you so very, very much for all of your hard work and extra efforts. I realize how much you did as there were some of the outside issues that came up coupled with the fact that we are out of state. You went the extra mile with a great disposition and made this possible for us. Many thanks! I will recommend you to anyone in the market down there.”

Dave & Charlene


About Nikki Midgett

“What a story Nikki and I have about this adventure I’ve found myself in where I hastily jumped into finding a property to build a home on and we were met with obstacle after obstacle. I never felt hopeless and truly feel we worked on this whole thing together. I was never in the dark and never without assurance followed by proof that we would find a solution. Nikki had a way to handle everything we came up against and somehow found solutions to all of them. She just kept pulling more and more tools out of her tool belt and she worked constantly (for what felt like an eternity but was only a few days) to get me exactly what I wanted. I can’t say enough good things about Nikki and how she has given so much of her time to help me and assure me that I’m not on my own in this. She immediately met with me to look at my first property, then had a second ready to show me, and finally, she exhausted every single option and resource to get me the property that’s exactly the right fit for me. Finding the right place to start your life, or to start over, is so important and she was so warm and understanding and most of all, patient. Her patience, knowledge, determination, diligence, and for my situation, a lot of creativity, is going to be a part of this new start that I will never forget. I’m most definitely recommending her to everyone I know who needs an agent.”

— Mandy Henderson


About Ellen Heatwole

“Ellen was an exceptional realtor.  Ellen was easily available and worked around our schedule.  She communicated  daily and sent us listings as they became available.  Her knowledge of the market and local contractors was invaluable when buying a house from out of state.  We appreciated her presence in all aspects of the sale, from inspections all the way to closing.”

— Keith + Susan Simmons


About Kelly Gorman

“Just a note to say “thank you” for the way you handled our property sale. We appreciated your personal commitmemt and friendly way to do business. It reminded me of the old days when people spoke to people and not to an answering machine. I guess to say we were pleased would be an understatement.”

— Kathy + Roy Snyder
