Testimonials Page

Quite simply put, T.K. is a pro. She understands the market, she’s knowledgeable about the area, and she is very savvy about the process of marketing and selling a home on the Outer Banks. She will work hard to put your home in the best light and get it to the target market to get it sold quickly. Once you start the process she is with you every step of the way following it through to closing. She is easy to work with, gives excellent advice while letting you make the decisions, and she and Roxanne are always available to answer questions or solve a problem. We weren’t sure it was the right time as there were a number of other soundfront homes on the market, but T.K. made it happen. My husband and I felt we were in good hands throughout the entire process and we enthusiastically recommend TK to anyone looking to sell their home on the Outer Banks. John & Marilynn Sting
