Kim Van Horn has been our agent for about 10 years on multiple transactions. Whether Kim was working as our buyers' or listing agent, she was consistently incredible. She patiently provided the guidance we needed and answered our endless stream questions with competence and skill. She listened to our needs and negotiated on our behalf. Knowing we had Kim on our side, we were confident that we were getting the best possible deal with the best possible agent. I've always thought that buying or selling a home had to be stressful on every level, but Kim actually made our experiences enjoyable! Thank you, Kim!
Kim Van Horn did a superb job helping my daughter find a home. Her expertise and persistence over quite a long period of time paid off. She is the type of agent who goes the extra mile every day. I am using her to sell my condo because I was so delighted with the results.
As a first time home owner, I couldn’t imagine working with a better agent. Not only did Traci make a typically stressful process seamless, but she was also thoughtful about my needs and educating me on the process of home buying along the way. She exceeded my expectations by also providing recommendations to other local businesses for home repairs, etc. Traci also remains in touch despite my house purchase being over 3 years ago. It was a treat to work with Traci!
Jackie Alluisi was a wonderful agent to work with! She always answered her phone and replied to emails quickly. She has a very good understanding of the local market. Jackie proposed an efficient plan for selling, arranged for the staging and photographs, and gave us good and thoughtful advice throughout the process. The sale went very quickly, and the offer we accepted was right on target. We would definitely work with Jackie again, and highly recommend her to anyone!
Jeanna Reeves is one of the best realtors I’ve ever dealt with. She offers full service with a positive attitude and puts the customer first in All real estate matters from the beginning of the process to the end. She advocates on behalf of the client and wants her clients to find their special piece of real estate. She rocks!
You will not find a better realtor, nor a nicer person, to work with than Jackie Alluisi. She provided us with instant service, rain or shine, with no problem and never missed a beat in any aspect of finding and buying a home in one of the most hectic markets in the country. Big Thanks, Jackie. Russ & Su Downs
Rossi J. Rossi and Bishop were absolutely amazing! We were from out of town, they met us and went to as many places as possible to check things out during the short time we were able to look. They did everything in their power to help us get our new home in Durham!!
Yvonne Chacos expertly guided me through the purchase of my home in North Raleigh recently. Yvonne is personable, knowledgeable, and highly professional. I can’t speak highly enough of my buying experience with her. I recommend Yvonne Chacos as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Lisa Blackwell. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest and hands-on and she really helped to take the pressure off of us. She was very patient with us through the whole process. We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one" she walked us through every step of the negotiations. We highly recommend Lisa Blackwell to anyone who is looking to buy a home.
We were so pleased to have Rebecca Dougherty as our agent for our recent home sale. She provided us with an experience that was as stress-free as it could be and a commission rate that would be hard to find elsewhere. Rebecca is highly competent, knowledgeable, efficient and always responded promptly throughout the entire process. Whether buying or selling a home in and around the Raleigh area, Rebecca Dougherty is the agent for us and should be the agent you call first!
Mariana Gallegos has been our agent through multiple transactions and I have referred friends to her who have all been thrilled by her professionalism, her undying dedication to pursuing the best for her clients and her vast knowledge of the Raleigh real estate market. Highly recommend Mariana Gallegos for all of your real estate needs!
Thank you Jackie Alluisi - the sale went so fast, I barely got to know you! :) Thanks for all the quick responses, spending extra time going over things, keeping me posted on what's happening, and the speed in which it all was done. I never expected it to be this easy and fast. Thanks again Jackie, your warm personality, and patience was greatly appreciated!
Our family has used Traci Tharrington since she began doing real estate over 10 years ago... We knew her for at least 20 years before as owner of Le Montage when my wife, mom and sister were clients of her first-rate clothing store. So I was not surprised she has turned out to be an excellent a realtor as she was clothing store proprietor. Traci is a class act... she has helped me, my parents and sister and several of our friends buy and sell homes and properties (She even sold a few horse farms!). As far as working harding, she's your go-to Gal...diligent as you might want in selling your place or finding a home, making sure it exactly what you want, in the best shape and for the best price. She is personal as well as personable, professional, knowledgeable and skillful at both home and property sells. What's more she's real and cares. A beauty and a gem.

I highly recommend Victoria Frateschi! She helped our family find our dream home and walked us through the entire process from beginning to end, and went way above and beyond to make this the most positive experience it could be. She was patient, she listened to what we were looking for, answered all our questions quickly, she was not pushy at all. She really worked very hard on our behalf and did very well. She was with us every step of the way. She’s intuitive, genuine, and knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable with her from the very beginning. She’s good at what she does, and We couldn’t be happier that we chose her to be the biggest part of the home buying process over others. Thank you, Victoria we love our new home!
Traci found me more than my dream home, in an area that I did not even consider I could live, and at the price range that was right for me. She persevered when even I began to lose faith... It takes a special type of agent and person to keep searching for the right place to buy in an era when inventory is so low... Her positive energy is aspirational and makes the whole process go by faster and much easier. I might have given up on finding a home had it not been for her. Her skill in walking you through the process is humane and encouraging. I would say she is an embodiment of living the laws of attraction... or maybe it's more down-to-earth - her work ethic, desire to help and skillful negotiations are in the league of what they call "best practices."
I want to thank Rebecca Dougherty for her exceptional work in selling my home as well as working with me to purchase a new home. Rebecca came highly recommended to me for her knowledge not only in the real estate industry, but construction and insurance as well. My residence at the time was sold during Thanksgiving season and Rebecca maintained constant communication and ensured the process closed smoothly. Rebecca ensured inspections were timely and referred great companies for repairs. We found my new home just before Christmas and it was the smoothest process I have encountered in purchasing a home. As hectic as the holidays can be in general, add selling and purchasing a home and it could be a disaster. Rebecca ensure it was not and a few days prior to Christmas I was in my new home. Thank you Rebecca for all the hard work and attention, it was greatly appreciated.
I can't tell you how happy I have been with Jo Wiles, with buying and selling our homes. She handled all aspects professionally and efficiently with minimal stress to us. No matter what came up, she handled it!
My Agent was Victoria Frateschi and no one could possibly be better. Even my Family members were very impressed with Victoria. If I ever house hunt again, I will use her. She is great to work with, sends you listings, works with you about loan possibilities, patience and knows the areas around the Triangle well. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a new home, having a good Agent is key in finding the right place for you.
Diana Jayes helped me and my significant other along my first home buying experience. From start to finish, she listened to all the details about the home we wanted and considered every piece when finding potential properties. When we found listings we were interested in, Diana quickly got us in to see them, then helped us calculate exactly how much the purchase would cost and helped us decide what to offer. Diana is an expert in the whole process and she is quick to act when there is an opportunity. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to find a new home in the area!
I reached out to Victoria Frateschi and it was the best decision ever! She is knowledgeable, easy to work with and honest. She walked through every step with me and kept me sane - literally! I purchased a wonderful home, unseen by me, in a great neighborhood trusting her all the way from beginning to closing - all this dealing with her online/phone from another state. Yes, she was a true blessing!
I have now worked with Agent, Sam Calvert, twice in the past 5 years. First to purchase my home and then to sell it. GREAT person to work with who goes above and beyond every time. Both transactions, purchasing and selling, were done while I lived out of state, and Sam ensured my best interests were met and represented me better than I could have asked for. If you need an experienced, knowledgeable, dependable, honest and ALWAYS available agent, I highly recommend Sam!! I promise to call him up the next time I'm in the market for a house in Durham.
Prior to marrying my now husband back in 2008, when my home was in foreclosure, someone told me about Tip, He represented me sooo well, My home came out of foreclosure and was SOLD, ?? I knew right then and there, He sincerely Cares about people, not just selling homes, He worked extremely hard and diligent, doing whatever it took, to het my home out of Foreclosure to Sold After marrying, my husband had a town home, There again we hired Tip, SOLD that town home, took us by the hand, "with my very picky and indecisive self, We bought another home, Once again, Tip SOLD that home, and again, literally like all the other time, took us by the hand, was present at Every meeting with builders, planners, CPI, realtors for the builders, EVERYBODY, That was a part of the building process, there was Tip, right alongside my husband and I speaking up for us as well as educating us on so many details we were not aware of, So for this Lonnnng relationship, and GENUINE care and kindness from Tip and his Team, hands down, He get"s the gold medal in my book EVERYTIME, I recommend him to any and everyone I know, who's looking for Real estate. Thanks again Tip For going the Extra Extra Extra mile???
Jeanna Reeves was our wonderful agent. We had lived in our home for over 22 years, and it needed some major updating to prepare for showing. Jeanna came to our home and suggested several areas to paint and refurbish. Six months later we were ready to show. Jeanna helped us navigate house showings professionally, and our house sold and closed within 3 months for the price we wanted! Jeanna always responded quickly to every question and concern we had throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jeanna to anyone looking for real estate agent. She really cares and works hard for her clients, and Jeanna even did an amazing job helping our son, a first time home buyer, find a home fast. After deciding to look at new construction rather then continue to bid on existing homes in a tight market, Jeanna went with him to help negotiate with the builder. Jeanna helped him with design decisions, home inspections, and closing responsibilities. She is a wonderful agent and you will not be disappointed!
Im not usually the type to go out of my way to provide reviews. But in the case of Jeanna Reeves it’s definitely warranted! Last year she sold me my third home and nailed it again. Her experience and knowledge is amazing. I dont think there is anything that could be thrown at her that she hasnt seen before. Hindsight being 20/20, I can clearly see where she gracefully navigated me away from making a poor choice or an impulse decision. Jeanna will put you and your family in the right home. PERIOD. I trust her whole heartedly and you cant put a price tag on that. She will always be my number one go-to! Thanks again Jeanna.
We recommend Kim Van Horn every time! We have bought two homes with her and sold one and the service outstanding. We can always count on Kim to give us good advice and be responsive to our needs. I will always recommend Kim just as she was originally recommended to us. All of our friends work with Kim when buying or selling because she is the BEST!
A huge THANK YOU to Northside Realty and Joann Samelko. After working with Joann for over a year we finally closed on our new home! Joann has been wonderful to work with, not only is she knowledgeable and professional, she took the time to understand what we were looking for. She has been a great partner in our home buying process. She met us on countless times to look at homes and went above and beyond in researching information for us. The research and experience that she brought to the process was irreplaceable. Thank you Joann!
Jason Dalton helped me buy my dream home, as well as sell my previous home and I couldn't be more pleased with his level of professionalism and knowledge of the housing market in the Triangle. He helped me to market and list my property, and got an offer at full asking price within 48 hours. When purchasing my new home, he connected me with various contractors and service technicians to make the transition as smooth as possible. I wholly recommend Jason and Northside Realty for anyone looking to buy or sell in Raleigh-Durham.
Jason Dalton at Northside Realty is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is an amazing communicator, extremely thorough, and truly values his clients. I cannot speak highly enough of the service, expertise, and care he provides. If you’re deciding on a real estate agent, I would highly recommend Jason Dalton.
Hands down the best Real Estate company to work with. My wife and I worked with Theresa Smith to buy our first home, and we will work with her for any future needs as well! If you are looking for great service whether buying or selling a home, look no further. Highly recommend!
I have had nothing but positive experiences with Northside Realty and specifically with Traci Tharrington. I have referred many friends and colleagues to Traci to assist them in finding a home. They have all found their dream home in an effortless and fun process with Traci's help.
Highly recommend Audrey Ray with Northside Realty! She was very responsive to inquiries I made and helped me with my real estate needs! Her passion for attention to details and her personality compliment each other very well.
Traci was great. I was not only selling a house I was also buying one. It was a scary first time experience and Traci made it fun and took the time to make sure I understood everything from start to finish. If I ever need to sell again I will be calling her
Courtney Mills assisted my family in finding a new home for my parents. We were thrilled with the support we received from Courtney. Her diligence and support in finding them a new home was outstanding! I would highly recommend her and Northside Realty!
A huge shout out (and thank you) goes to Lois Magee of Northside Realty. My husband and I just purchased our first home, and if it wasn't for Lois, we'd still be sitting in our condo contemplating whether or not we should start looking for a house. We had been discussing buying a home for months, but I was very wary of finding a good realtor that we could trust and that had our best interests in mind, as we are both young, did not personally know any realtors in the area, and were overwhelmed by the sheer number of realtors that turned up during a Google search. Long story short, we were referred to her by a close friend of ours and I cannot put into words how thankful I am that things worked out the way they did. As soon as we met her, we did not think twice about working with her, as it was apparent from the onset that Lois was professional, thorough, attentive, knowledgeable, and most importantly, trustworthy. I have heard from many people that the home buying process is usually stressful, but we weren't stressed at all, and I attribute that to Lois. From start to finish, things went smoothly. She provided us with all of the information necessary to make informed decisions. She was unbiased and honest with us regarding potential imperfections in homes (she even caught that a bathroom renovation likely wasn't permitted because an air vent was missing, despite the seller having initially disclosed everything was permitted...turns out she was correct and the seller hadn't actually permitted it). She answered every single question we had and was more than willing to work with our very hectic schedules (my husband and I are in the same place one day a week). She also worked very hard for us during negotiations. She truly does have your best interests in mind, and she does everything she can to advocate and work for you. I cannot say enough good things about Lois and we will shamelessly be referring her to anyone we know that is looking to buy or sell a home.
Excellent performance and attention to detail!
Outstanding service all around. I was very happy with the process and felt I could trust Northside completely with the purchase of my home. This is my second experience with them and both were fantastic. I would highly recommend them for buying or selling.
When we found ourselves ready to relocate from California to the Raleigh-Durham area in North Carolina, we were recommended by our friends to work with Northside Realty. From then on our experiences have exceeded our expectations. Northside Realty has helped us with so many things beyond finding us a perfect new home. Always friendly and professional, reminding us about the next steps and always one step ahead of providing us needed information throughout the process. It could not have been easier for us to re-locate than working with Northside Realty. We didn’t even notice the time difference or distance, communication was always prompt and if possible we spent less time and effort on the whole process than we would have if we lived in the area.
I recently moved to the Raleigh area and was referred to Tip Iuliucci of Northside Realty. I was blown away by the service I received. In dealing with other firms, I always felt pressured, blown off at times, and like they just did not care about me other than selling a house. It was the exact opposite with Northside. I never felt pressured, but always felt as if they were trying to help me buy my home. I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home to use Northside Realty. You would not be disappointed.
Thank you, Northside for all your help over the past year with my home purchases. The advice that I’ve received has been extremely valuable and has put me in a good financial position for my future. You all spent time helping me make the right decision instead of just trying to get a contract signed. Besides the efforts during the buying and selling process, I was even more impressed with the support and insight Northside provided to me after the sale. I will always recommend my friends to do the same.
I have had a wonderful working relationship with Northside Realty to the point that I would never consider listing with anyone but Northside. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who's looking for the best real estate company to sell their property. I couldn't have done it without their expertise!
My experience with Northside Realty and agent Joann Samelko couldn't have been better. Joann was willing to sell my home at its true market value and work hard to do just that versus lowballing the selling price by 25% as other realtors with other firms wanted to do for a quick "I sold this house in 2 days" kudos at the expense of MY best interests. Those other agents' lack of fiduciary responsibility was shocking/appalling.
Joann came out, listened, advised, coached, and developed a very comprehensive marketing plan that got my house sold. Through the selling process (with some difficult buyers) she was able to strategically make the right calls & moves that ultimately got my house sold. I would absolutely recommend her to sell your home and I will be using her again when I am ready to purchase my next home. Thank you, Northside and Joann!
I had the absolute best experience! Joann Samelko was my agent and I would recommend her to any/everyone! She worked hard to understand my needs and then assisted me in ways that anticipated my questions. She was kind, efficient and a partner in navigating the whole process. I can't say enough good about my experience with Joann! I highly recommend!
