  • "My wife and I are new to the Wilmington area and needed help to find a home and neighborhood that would be a good fit for us. Even though our initial plans were to finish out a year lease, Rick Binford offered to start working with us now to help identify areas that would appeal to us. Rick did an excellent job in showing us the vast options available to us. We finally decided on a neighborhood in Southport. We liked it so much that we purchased the home now and will be moving in soon. I keep Rick's cards with me and have given them to several people I've met who are or will be looking to buy a home. We HIGHLY recommend Rick ! "

  • "Lauren Frick and Rebecca Daniels have been beyond helpful in the selling of my first home. I have never sold a home before and was very informed during each part of the selling stage."

  • We were out of state buyers and needed lots of extra help and communication. We had a wonderful experience with KBT and especially Rick Binford who we felt went way beyond our expectations to make our experience a great one. He got to know us and what we were looking for extremely well which made us feel like we were in the best possible situation. We would be happy to talk to anyone about working with Rick and KBT

  • Our realtor, Tyson Emery was very attentive to our needs, very patient with our requests and made us feel we were number one on his priorities. He assisted in us looking at close to 100 homes and introduced us to various neighborhoods until we landed on a great fit for us. Tyson and his team were great to deal with.

  • Kirk from KBT was amazing during our first home buying experience! We could not have asked for a better team to walk us through this process!!! Kirk was great through the negotiation process and highly accessible for any questions we had at any given time. The whole team responded in an extremely timely manner. It was great

  • Tyson Emery was the best! He was always available to answer questions, and we had plenty. We felt that he was really working for us alone. His promptness and relaxed manner made this process so much easier. We threw him a couple of curve balls, but he accepted every challenge and excelled! Thanks so much Tyson, you are like one of our family now.

  • There was a lot to be done to effect the sale. I was dealing with them long distance and they took care of everything. Great people to work with. I feel that they most definitely deserved their commission. They earned it.

    - fuzzydad
  • Great group of people. Worked with Janine for over a year. Finally my move happened. Kirk spent a good part of the day with me looking at houses. I found my new home with the last home we saw that day. The process was easy they had it all under control. Kristine handled all the paperwork and delt with my mortgage company. Made it VERY EASY for me. I would recommend then to anyone. Thanks for helping me begin my next chapter in life ??

  • Tyson Emory and his staff are great. Professional and willing to help in all matters of the home buying process. Easy to get ahold of and great to work with. Tyson will go to bat for you and ensure his clients are taken care of throughout the process.

    - David Grant
  • We never imagined that buying our first house could be so fun and easy. Everyone we worked with at KBT Realty was professional, knowledgeable, prompt and very friendly.Wonderful experience from start to finish. And we absolutely love our new home.

    - Michael LaFayette
  • Entire team at KBT met the challenge of dealing with a last minute lender issue. Kristine Roody in particular worked around the clock toward resolution. She remained positive and kept focused on resolving the problem. Alexandra Lysik, of Cavik Insurance, was also willing to go above and beyond in order to assist with getting problem resolved. Thanks again to an amazing team of professionals.

    - Daniel Wildasin
  • Everyone at KBT was amazing and we couldnt have navigated our sell & purchase without them. We considered doing for sale by owner for a minute and so glad we didnt. Debbie Alford, our agent, is a 10 out of 10. Seriously think of what youd expect from your agent and then know you get a million times more with Debbie. We started with an agent and wound up with a friend. When we chose to work with Debbie we didnt realize how much wed also be getting from the support of her KBT crew. We got great pictures of our home, helpful staging tips, exposure for our home before it went on the market and yeah it sold in four days, and near 24/7 service. Kristine the transaction coordinator stayed on top of everything and kept us (and all the other vendors like mortgage) on the right path and ready for our double close day. Moving, selling & buying is stressful do yourself a favor and work with this stellar team!

    - Matthew Johnson
  • Fantastic experience shopping for our first home. KBT exceeded our expectations and made the process ridiculously easy. We changed our minds 10 times throughout the process and were treated with professionalism and patience. Highly recommended!!!

    - Eric Partin
  • Kirk and his team of professionals once again exceeded my expectations. Ive bought and sold ten homes with Kirk and have been working together for almost five years and those properties have been in Landfall, Wilmington, Leland and we are now close to closing on my first property on Wrightsville Beach. Lindsey from his office is super-responsive and has kept me updated on every aspect of my property sale, and Kristine has been great in keeping things moving forward. Janine, the face of KBT Realty, is a fountain of information and has follow-up skills second to none. I would strongly recommend anyone looking to sell or buy real estate in New Hanover, Brunswick or Pender Counties to work with Kirk and his team. They treat you like youre their only client

    - nckpmgeyd
  • Kirk was amazing to work with. They truly care about their clients and Kirk always had or best interest at heart. He stood by us throughout the entire process of buying our new home, and fought hard for us. He was always readily available to help us or answer any of our questions.

    - Allison Moricle
  • KBT made buying our first home a super smooth and easy process. The team really went above and beyond when helping us understand the entire home buying process. Things moved along well and we always knew what was going on or where we stood throughout the entire process. We always felt as if the team was 100% on our side and always did more than we could imagine to make us as first time home buyers feel at ease. Special shout out to Charles and Kristine with KBT and Bob from Movement Mortgage for taking the time to make sure we got our dream home and paying attention to all the details that we would have otherwise missed! We couldn't have done it without yall. 5 stars and a 100% recommendation to use these guys when looking for your new home!! We cannot say thank you enough!

    - Myles and Hannah Swain
  • I would highly recommend the KBT realty team. Tyson Emery was very responsive and showed us what we needed to see in order to make our final decision. We were going to finalize plans for building on a piece of property we were purchasing but he helped us find a move in ready home. We now can immediately enjoy the next phase of our life without waiting a year for our home to be built and go through the sometimes overwhelming aspects of building
