    Claire was recommended to us and we will recommend her to others. She’s an all-star negotiator with extensive and loyal local networks; skills and people on your side that really help seal the deal for real estate negotiations. Plus, she’s a gem to spend time with while touring homes and land.

    Claire is phenomenally good at what she does. In a hot market with tons of competition for available homes, I followed her advice, and it paid off. I only offered on one house, and my offer was accepted over others. Claire managed all the details and gracefully dealt with the inevitable snags. She was very responsive throughout the process. I first met Claire many years ago. She gave me, a first-time homebuyer with a limited budget, as much attention as clients buying million-dollar homes. It ultimately took me 6 years to save up and feel comfortable buying a home, but she never pressured me, and she never blew me off. I deeply appreciate that.Claire is also incredibly knowledgable. I remember walking up to one open house, and she rattled off issues: termite damage, roof and siding needed to be replaced, asbestos, etc. She wasn't going to let me buy a lemon. She's not in this business to make a quick buck -- she cares about her clients and wants to form long-lasting relationships.

    I had just moved from California under tragic circumstances when I met Claire. She has been very kind, caring, and professional. She truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to ensure things are done correctly. On numerous occasions, she had stated I could call her day or night with any concerns I may have. Additionally, she has referred several reputable business people to me and they have all been excellent. Claire is an exceptional Real Estate Professional and is an asset to your team.

    I've loved working with Claire. She has helped me buy two homes and sell one over the past few years. She is very attentive and understands her clients well. She knows the area and how to advocate for her client's needs. She is so kind and respectful and we will definitely work with her again!

    Claire did such a great job. She was so thoughtful and realized the personal aspects of moving and selling a home you have loved for so many years. She really knew her stuff too!

    Claire helped my wife and I purchase a home. We have been very impressed with her knowledge of the local real estate market and attention to our requests. She is also very personable and genuinely wants to help you get the home you are looking for. We can't say enough good things about Claire. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We will now be working with her to sell our former house.

    There are nowhere near enough stars here to bestow on Claire! What a fun experience to buy our first home under her wing <3 Claire was content to work at our pace, and was on top of her game when we were ready to move fast. Claire is a master of her trade and has the perfect personality to keep you positive throughout the process, while still get the job done precisely and efficiently. Claire is sweeter than sugar, but will also fight tooth and nail for you until the end--and beyond! I would hands down send everyone her way who might be looking for real estate in central NC!!!

    My wife and I worked with Claire to buy and sell our home. For one, Claire is extremely reachable. It may sound silly to mention this, but she always answers the phone! If she was with another client, she always quickly got back to us and really showed that she was working hard for us. This kind of thing could “make or break” an offer when buying or selling a home in such a competitive and time-sensitive market. Claire also has many years experience in the Triangle real estate market which was crucial when buying our home. Her experience in the local market helped tremendously because she happened to have previously worked with the buyer's agent and had great rapport with the other agent. Again, this is the kind of thing that could make or break an offer to buy or sell. Knowing other agents will always help. Claire also had a fantastic network of pros/referrals for things like photography, staging, closing attorney, home repairs, home inspector. For example, my home truly had the best photography compared to other houses for sale in my neighborhood. Her recommended inspector, staging company, and closing attorney also did a fantastic job and I would happily work with them again. Her digital marketing campaign also helped boost my home’s market exposure to out-of-area buyers. In the end, Claire really helped us buy the right home at the right price, and sell our home at the right price. I give my strongest possible recommendation to work with her.

    Claire helped us buy our first home and we can't recommend her enough. We knew very little about the home buying process when we first met Claire but she took the time to educate us, refer us to lenders, and answer any and all questions we had. We fully trusted Claire and felt very supported throughout the process. We ended up finding our dream home earlier than we expected and Claire sprang into action - negotiating a competitive offer that was immediately accepted, advocating for us to get repairs and credit, answering questions at all hours, and being a supportive and delightful partner during what can be an intense process. We'll always be grateful to Claire for helping us find our first home! We'd recommend her to any family member or friend - you'll be in good hands!
