  • Justin helped me buy a home

      I only have the best things to say about Justin. I feel like we live in a world where competency is undervalued. Coming across an individual that is so professional, knowledgable and capable almost never happens. I found him when I was googling "how to buy a house" because I had no idea what I was doing, and gave him the impossible task of finding me my dream home in 6 weeks. He took all the work and stress out of the experience. He responds immediately, he stays on top of things, he cares about things being right for his clients. I never once had the panic moment of "signing my life away" because he negotiated wonderfully, got all the repairs I requested done, and got my closing date juuuust in time in the super tight window I gave him. I can't sing high enough praises.

    • Justin helped me buy a home

        Justin is the best agent that we have ever worked with. He was able to find a house that matched our very long list of 'must haves' in one weekend. At every property he was able to give us a fair assessment of all the positives and negatives keeping our best interest in mind. Throughout the whole process, he was very knowledgeable and incredibly responsive to any of our questions or requests. After we made our decision, he worked diligently to get the best deal for our perfect house. We will definitely be recommending him to all of our friends!

      • Justin helped me buy a home

          My wife and I moved to the Triangle from New York City in 2017, and first met Justin through some friends who had done the same a couple years earlier. Justin had helped them navigate the process of purchasing a home from long distance so well, that they glowingly referred him to us. From the start, Justin went above and beyond helping us find possible rental properties. Fast forward to a year later (spring 2018) when we were ready to buy - there was only one Realtor to call. Justin's knowledge of every neighborhood in the Triangle is incredible. From knowing the schools, the neighborhood noise levels, all the way to knowing which areas are expected to appreciate most in home valuations - he's got it all in his head. If there's something Justin isn't sure of, he researches it diligently and reports back in great detail. Now, if this sounds intense - it's wasn't! Jusin made the process of us buying our first home INCREDIBLY EASY. He explains as much or as little as you want based on your knowledge, and always makes you feel comfortable. One of the most important things to us was knowing he was committed to finding the right home for our needs, which he did by presenting us with lots of options, and narrowing it down based on a number of factors, as well as how we felt at different showings. As our desires changed throughout the process, Justin quickly updated his search strategy, and we kept moving smoothly until we found the home that was right for us. In this market, you need an agent who can make things happen fast - most listings we looked at were gone in 24 hours. Justin made himself available at all hours to meet us for showings with very little notice, and never seemed frustrated or tired of the process. He truly loves his job, and that comes through in how brilliant he is at doing it! Finally, we marveled at how helpful Justin was after our offer was accepted. He was like a maestro helping us conduct an orchestra of home inspections, appraisals, communications with the selling agent, and of course responding to our many random emails quickly and professionally. By the time we closed, we were confident and comfortable with our decisions, and truly happy customers of Justin's. We recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Triangle!

        • Justin helped me buy a home

            We worked with Justin to purchase a property in the Raleigh area from out of town. Justin was great to work with. From our initial meeting, it was clear that he is "on top of his game". He is very aware of the market conditions and areas out here. We also saw integrity in the way he does business: he is not just out to make a buck, but rather is looking out for his client's best interests, even if it means delivering messages that they may not want to hear. Through the entire purchasing process, he was on top of all the details and made sure that everything was handled properly. Should we ever move again, Justin will be our first call when it comes to triangle real estate. He has our complete trust, and we recommend him to anyone in the area.

          • Justin helped me buy a home

              We started our search for a home in Raleigh in late September 2018. Justin met up with us as we were interviewing multiple agents and were certain after meeting for coffee, he was our guy. Justin guided us and provided valuable insight as we are new to the region and steered us away from some potential money pits. In our experience Justin’s top three characteristics were responsiveness, desire to find the perfect home, and professionalism. Justin was available via text, phone, and e-mail. Was always impressed with his ability to respond quickly, coherently, and with completeness. He prepared us for each step through the home purchasing process. Coming from a challenging market, Justin helped us think for the long-term and highlighted home characteristics valued in the RTP market. This led us to our perfect home, but also a home we expect to increase in value in the coming years. Throughout the home purchasing process Justin provided professional feedback, communication, and interaction with 3rd parties. But beyond appearance, process, and commitment it was obvious that Justin is passionate about finding the right home for the buyer. We will be recommending Justin to all future home buyers requesting a referral or real-estate advice. Justin made the home purchasing adventure memorable for all the right reasons. Looking forward to working with Justin in the future!

                Justin is amazing! He found exactly what we wanted and went out of his way to get the job done!

              • Justin helped me buy a home

                  Justin was an amazing realtor to work with. Being first home owners, we needed guidance and had a lot of questions. Justin was patient, answered all our questions and encouraged us to stay with the process till we found an ideal home for us. We did not feel pressured at any point to buy a home or make a decision just because it was taking time. He understood our needs and helped us pick the best homes to go look at based on the needs. He made home buying a hassle-free experience for newbies like us. Definitely recommend him! 😊

                • Justin helped me buy a home

                    Justin was amazing! We relocated from CO to NC, and he was with us every step of the way. He provided us with a personalized site precisely tailored to what we were looking for. He set up all appointments before we arrived to ensure we could visit every home on the list. Two days later, we found our dream home. Any time we had questions, he replied within minutes via email, phone, or text. Justin is very easy to talk to, and his explanations regarding the processes involved in our purchase were clear and simple to understand. Our interests were his priority, but he never hesitated to include his own suggestions to ensure we were making the right decisions. His patience, assistance, and endurance went beyond our expectations. A wonderful and memorable experience - thank you, Justin!

                  • Justin helped me buy a home

                      My wife and I decided to relocate from Philadelphia to Raleigh and we could not have found a better agent to make that happen! Justin worked with us for nearly six months to find the perfect house for us. He was there every step of the way, always super available and extremely knowledgeable of every aspect of the home buying process, including differences you may not be aware of if you're not from North Carolina. We ended up choosing a brand new house in a new neighborhood, and Justin actually got us the house at less than asking price -- which is super rare for new construction -- with upgraded appliances and window coverings thrown in. He was physically there with us every step of the way, from negotiating the contracts to inspections and walkthroughs and closing. If you're relocating to the Raleigh-Durham area, Justin is the agent you want working for you.

                    • Justin helped me buy a home

                        Justin helped my wife and I find a great home in Cary, NC and stay within budget. He was very knowledgeable about the area and went out of his way to find good matches for us. Once at a house he helped us see the pluses and minuses of the house for us and as well and resale value down the road when we decide to move. I will be recommending Justin to friends and family.

                      • Justin was a great agent to work with. Very knowledgeable. From day one he always have the best intentions, always think for my best interests. He will give me his honest opinions. It was a pleasure working with him, I am from out of the state, but every time I need him to personally go check the house for me he always went even though he lives 50 miles away from my house. I highly appreciate all his help. Thank you Justin.

                        - Shuo Z
                      • Justin is Awesome!!! He was always willing and ready to assist us in finding our home. We truly appreciated his honesty when it came to questions regarding the home buying/selling process. I have referred him to friends and family and will continue to do so

                        - Angie C
                      • We met Justin just shy of two years ago. We were relocating to the area and at the time decided that renting was the way to go. I actually posted on a blog about needing recommendations about where to move and Justin emailed me. At the time we didn't know he was a realtor, when he initially responded to me, but once we started communicating he let us know up front and in a way that was not pushy. He asked when we were looking at moving and offered to show us around. We talked with him about buying vs renting. Renting won out as it gave us time to learn about Durham, what neighborhoods were good, near restaurants, etc. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and took time to answer our many questions. Within two weekends we finally signed a lease for a rental. In the year that followed, we continued to communicate off and on. Fast forward two years, and we just closed on our new home. Getting to this point consisted of a lost number of viewings. Through it all Justin was always available to show us properties, talk about the pros and cons of certain properties or just to listen to us vent when our offer was not accepted. Justin consistently demonstrated true concern that we didn't just buy any house but that we bought the right house for us. We would highly recommend that you contact Justin if you are considering buying or even renting a property.

                        - Lesa D
                      • If you're moving to the Raleigh-Durham area, call Justin first. He's:-Competent and conscientious -A pleasure to work with-A former engineer (with good taste) who isn't afraid to shoot straight about the pros/cons of any house-A seasoned realtor/networker who can find you the perfect place to buy while connecting you with the right folks-He has tons of experience working with out-of-townersYou'll save so much time and headache, I strongly recommend working with him.

                        - Charlie V
                      • After my husband landed a new job in the Triangle area, we needed a pro to help us quickly find a rental home as we relocated from Baltimore. Justin responded to the call and helped us land the perfect rental home in just one weekend. He was knowledgeable, trustworthy, and looked out for our best interests. We'll definitely be reaching out to him as we put down roots in the area and begin a search for a home of our own in the coming months.

                        - Jennifer H
                      • It's rare that one can say that a real estate agent has your best interest in mind, but my husband and I can honestly say that we felt that Justin did just that! From the beginning, we knew we were in good hands with Justin--he was always very responsive and willing to be flexible to work within our schedules. He took the time to really explain the market, as well as the pros and cons of each home. He's incredibly knowledgeable, and because he was always patient and willing to share that knowledge, we felt empowered to make informed decisions. Furthermore, I appreciate that Justin never rushed us. Buying a home together was a big deal for my husband and me, and we wanted to take our time. There was never a pushy pitch from Justin about any of the homes--just facts and useful tidbits of his professional judgment. He never made us feel like we were wasting his time. Once we were finally ready to pull the trigger, Justin moved quickly and fought hard to get us a great deal. He continuously kept us abreast of the process and any issues that arose, walking us through step-by-step.We couldn't be happier with our experience with Justin. He helped us find a beautiful home and made the process--dare I say--enjoyable and fun!

                      • Justin was a great agent to work with during our first home buying experience. He clearly walked us through the steps of home buying from start to finish. He worked on our schedule, including arranging showings with very little notice, and always found a way to accommodate our requests. Most importantly, Justin gave us honest advice is navigating a very tough real estate market. He is knowledgable and exceptionally upbeat. We highly recommend Justin to anyone looking to sell or buy, especially new home buyers, and we intend to recommend him to our friends and family in the area.

                        - John D
                      • Justin was very patient, prepared and genuine. Considering a big move felt easier with his guidance. I've never met a realtor that put forth that much effort for someone out of town. We decided not to make the move, for now, but I wouldn't call anyone else when we do!!! Thank you Justin

                        - Anthony Z
                      • I am making a cross country move from Minneapolis to Durham. I was in contact with Justin about 2 months prior to my move. Justin was extremely helpful! He set up a search that sent me automatic email alerts for new properties matching my search criteria. He checked in often to see if the rentals fit with what I was looking for and to see if I had any updates or changes. He is very quick to respond to emails.I flew down to Durham with very limited time to look at properties. Based on my criteria for location and price, he had 10 showings set up. He picked me up at my hotel and drove me around. We saw 10 properties in 2 hours. Justin was more than willing to take longer if needed, but I wanted to be in and out quick. I found what I was looking for in 2 hours! Justin would honestly talk about the pros and cons of each property which I appreciated as I am not from the area. He has your best interest in mind. He was wonderful to work with! If I end up staying in Durham permanently, I will definitely be using Justin as my realtor! I strongly recommend working with him. Thanks for making my moving process a little less stressful, Justin!

                      • Justin exceeded our expectations and impressed us at every step of our home buying process. It was great to work with him. We were every realtor's dream client: not decided if we wanted a new house or fixer upper, city or country, or even what geographic area we wanted. Regardless of that, Justin threw himself into helping us from Day 1, without the slightest hesitation. Every question we had was answered thoroughly and immediately, he worked nights and weekends and always made us feel like we were his only clients. He never took another phone call while he was with us or showing us houses. It is the little things that really contribute to the overall satisfaction throughout the homebuying process and while you cannot always describe all the things a good realtor does right, you definitely notice when you have a realtor that is not doing them. Long story short, Justin worked relentlessly to get us exactly what we wanted, never showed a single moment of frustration or negativity throughout our eight month search and, through his positivity and competence, made what is traditionally recognized as one of the big moments of stress in someone's life very enjoyable for us. We would wholeheartedly recommend Justin to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, sharp, friendly, and hardworking realtor.

                        - Lisa W
                      • Justin is highly recommended - the consummate professional who will go above and beyond to meet the needs of his clients. We worked with Justin for a period of several months and during that time, changed our wants and needs significantly. None of this fazed Justin and in the end we bought a beautiful house and are extremely happy with both the house and the service we received from Justin. His network of connections is an added bonus. We wouldn't hesitate to work with Justin again and we would recommend him most highly to anyone serious about either buying or renting a home!

                        - Gillian B
                      • Justin is fantastic! My boyfriend and I are moving from Denver to Durham and were looking for a place to rent. Between the two of us we had looked at over 20 houses and found nothing we loved. With two weeks left before the move, I fortuitously got connected to Justin.At the end of the day on a Friday, he patiently took me around to view properties. He was able to answer all my questions about each property. He is also very knowledgable about the different neighborhoods and the Raleigh-Durham area as a whole. At the end of the day, we had 3 possibilities and settled on one to apply for.Justin stayed with us through the application process, communicating with the property management company and keeping us updated on the progress. Justin is very responsive (quick to answer phone calls/texts/emails), professional and straightforward. Because of him, we are going to be able to move in ahead of schedule. He was also helpful with ideas for connecting socially and professionalIy. When we are ready to buy a house we will definitely go to Justin!

                        - Shelley B
                      • He is a very respectful and great agent to have

                      • I posted a review about Justin back in May 2014 when we relocated to Raleigh from Boston. In the two years since then, as we settled into the Triangle, Justin then was our buyer's agent for buying our first home, which we just closed on a few weeks ago in Chapel Hill. I never really pictured myself living in a house like the one we have, with the property and amenities that came along with it, but it was because of Justin that we not only found the house, but were able to come to terms with the sellers, who were a real handful. But Justin not only helped us find and buy our home, but he turned us onto a lender with whom he's had a ton of experience. We were going a different direction on a mortgage, but thought it best to go with a lender he recommended for a few reasons, and not only were the terms great but it was a pleasure working with them too. Justin also turned us onto a RE lawyer, an HVAC service shop, and more. And he didn't just disappear after the closing. The value Justin adds is clear - but what's also clear is why he's so successful - he loves his job, he's passionate and patient. I cant recommend Justin enough.

                        - Ben S
                      • I can honestly say that Justin is the first person in a very long time that has truly impressed both my husband and myself with his dedication, knowledge, organization and work ethic. We were new to the area and didn't know anyone and found Justin online. His reviews were all positive so we gave him a call were not disappointed! Not only is Justin likable but he is very "hands-on" and involved in every step of the home buying process to ensure that it is as smooth positive experience. He was available immediately to assist us in viewing potential properties and maintained his positive and patient attitude while we continued to look at homes. He has great experience which allowed him to anticipate our needs and questions during each step of the process. He even pointed out a few "red flags" at some of the homes we viewed which showed us that he was concerned about our welfare and not just the sale. He is great at what he does and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home. Also, I have never left a review with Yelp so this says quite allot that I would take the time to tell you just how good Justin is!

                        - Eileen M
                      • My husband and I relocated here from Charlotte. Based on our discussions, Justin provided us with many options online, and we made our selections before meeting him in Durham for our formal hunting trip. We were met with a friendly and professional demeanor. His knowledge and honesty about the local market was very reassuring. From the beginning he treated us as friends rather than just as customers. Justin even helps transplants to reach out and become comfortable with their new community by offering newcomer activities to assist in learning about Durham and making new friends. This exemplifies his dedication to being a realtor who cares about his clients.An outstanding, full-service realtor; Justin is deserving of anyone's attention when seeking a qualified professional to buy or sell a home. He comes with our highest recommendation as a realtor that goes above and beyond for his clients.

                        - Joanne K
                      • I really hit the mother lode when I found Justin. I'd just arrived in NC and wanted to find and buy a house ~ fast! He pulled listings for me very quickly. I needed to live close to my daughter and when she changed the target zone for me to find a house in, he was on it in a heartbeat and pulled a new set of listings. Not one complaint. He listened carefully to what I needed in a house, likes and dislikes, shared only the listings that were truly reasonable, and off we went. He helped me get an offer in on my new home, negotiating for the terms I wanted. So I'd bought and moved into a house in NC less than a month after leaving CA! He's patient and kind ~ he wasn't hurrying me in any way. He was just very responsive to my need to really move fast. He's great at communications. He'll answer his phone if he can but if you have to leave a message or text, he responds very quickly. He super sharp and really knows the area (I bought in Durham). He worked hard, adjusted his hours to meet my needs, and followed up on whatever needed attention. He even drove me to Raleigh to sign the closing papers. I highly recommend him!

                        - Sue C
                      • Justin has been a complete lifesaver for us! We are relocating from Los Angeles to Raleigh and we don't know the area at all. Justin is prompt with emails and phone calls and answered all (my many, many) questions about different houses. He let me know about the different neighborhoods and which might be a good fit for us. When we didn't hear back from a property manager about a house we were interested in, Justin kept on top of them until he heard back from them. When it became clear we couldn't come to Raleigh before the move Justin really stepped up. He offered to take videos of places we saw online and liked. We found a place pretty much within a week of serious looking and we're so relieved! We're renting for now, but we know who we'll be calling when we decide to buy!

                        - Alexandra G
                      • I thought the most stressful part of my cross country relocation was going to be finding a new place that met all my requirements. Luckily for me, Justin made the made it stress free! I was really impressed with his knowledge of the area. Not only did he show me several homes that fit my needs, he would set appointments at specific times of the day so I could get a realistic feel for my commute. The whole experience was just great and I'd recommend Justin to anyone looking for home in NC!

                        - Paul D
                      • There is a reason that Justin is rated "Best of Durham 2015". Justin and I worked on my 1031 exchange and were under a tight time line to identify three potential rental properties for my exchange. He went beyond the call of duty so many times. 1031 exchanges are nerve racking. Justin took my 1031 exchange to heart as if it was his own. I would work with Justin again if the situation comes my way to buy real estate in the Raleigh area. Thanks Justin!!

                        - Susan Y
                      • As an individual who works day in and day out in customer service and relationship management, and who spent five years in the real estate and property management industry early in my career, I am extremely picky and well-versed on what makes a Realtor excellent. Justin is by far the best, he is timely to respond, available as needed, extremely honest and trustworthy, and made my husband and I feel like we were his only clients throughout our recent home purchase. I have referred him in the past and will do so again. Justin really listened to our requirements, and was patient with us until we found a home that met all of our qualifications. He walked us through each part of the process, and always maintained an extremely high level of professionalism and customer service. As a recruiter, I help candidate's relocate to the Triangle and always recommend they meet with Justin, he always creates a great impression, which in turn reflects well on my business. If you're having a hard time deciding on a Realtor, look no further. Justin will take of you.

                        - Ashley M
                      • Justin is wonderful! We first contacted him six months before we were ready to buy, just to get a feel for the market. I wanted one skilled point of contact, not an impersonal team. He immediately impressed us with his responsiveness, deep knowledge of the local market, and earnest desire to help us find the perfect house. Our first meeting, he spent an entire afternoon showing us the variety we could find within our price point. When we were actually ready to house hunt, Justin was the ideal balance for not only our property needs but also our personalities :) In addition to being a very skilled agent, he is also fantastically organized and very responsive. I've emailed questions to him in the middle of the night and received an immediate response! My favorite part: we've been in our house for a couple months now and he still checks in to make sure everything is going well. Go with Justin, you won't regret it!

                        - Sam W
                      • Justin was literally amazing. We were relocating from across the country and, due to a unexpected circumstances, we had to find a place to live remotely and quickly. Justin stepped up to the plate and walked us through the whole process, step by step. He was incredibly helpful, patient and went FAR above and beyond the call of duty to make our search and decision as smooth and pleasant as possible. Justin was always quick to respond to any question we had, was an incredible resource about the area and tirelessly helped us to find a great place to live. It was like having a best friend prize fighter in our corner - on the ground and fighting for us!We cannot say enough good things about Justin. He totally saved us! Thanks, Justin!

                      • Justin came highly recommended to me by a friend that Justin helped purchase a home in the Raleigh area. I was looking for a home in the Durham area, and as this was my first home buying experience, I decided to use Justin as my realtor. I cannot compare Justin with other realtors, as he is the only one I have ever worked with, but I can say for a fact that he was an excellent choice and I will definitely use him in the future if I need his services again. Right from the start, he was extremely friendly and made sure to take the time to explain the entire process to me. He was very knowledge of the housing market in the area. He was always available to work around my schedule and visit every home I was interested in seeing. When I finally made my decision to have a new home built, he always went to bat for me when discussing things with the builder and he even went with me to the design studio and helped me pick out the upgrades for my new home. He even suggested an excellent mortgage broker and home inspector to me, and I ended up using both of them as well.Working with Justin was an absolute pleasure. He was always available when I needed him and I never felt pressured or rushed in any of my decisions. Justin came across as more of a friend rather than just looking for a commission. He was always straightforward and willing to point out issues with a house or things he personally did not like about it and potential pitfalls I may need to consider. In the end, I believe I found the perfect home for me and the majority of the credit is due to Justin. I cannot imagine going through this process without him. If you are looking for a realtor in the Raleigh or surrounding areas, go with Justin! I guarantee you will not be sorry.
