If you are a Seller...
If you are a Buyer...
Beth knows her business. She is exceptionally responsive and knowledgeable. Since we moved from out of state, she was able to guide us through the real estate process here. Her knowledge of the local market guided us to the perfect house and neighborhood. We highly recommend het.
I’ve done several transactions with Beth McCormick and I can honestly say she is the hardest working realtor I’ve ever met. We aren’t a typical family and have a few specifics we require which can make the house hunting process tedious and time consuming. We bought our first house through Beth four years ago when we moved to NC from IL, after a stint with another realtor who wasn’t a good fit. It was our last day in town and we had given up finding the right place within our budget. Not only did Beth find the house for us, she set up the showing ASAP and we had a signed contract that afternoon on a gorgeous home that we loved. The laws are very different here than in Illinois and she explained that aspect in detail.
Fast forward 2 years when we decide to leave that property to look for something with more land and space. Beth showed me countless houses, really listened to what I had to say and understood exactly what we would be happy with and what we couldn’t live with. She pointed out things in certain properties that she knew wouldn’t suit our requirements or that we should avoid, some I hadn’t considered. She cares more about her clients than the sale and in my experience, this is rare and one reason I trust her implicitly. Something I think everyone should have in their realtor.
For my own home, she offered to help stage, gave tips on what we could do for better showings and pointed out a few things that we should repair.
After a year of house hunting this time and not finding the right fit, we decided to build. Beth happily attended every single meeting and walk through of that entire process and was truly more helpful than I can convey. 8 months later, circumstances with that builder ultimately forced us to withdraw our contract. (That’s another story.) This was, to say the least, a very painful and frustrating time. Our own home was under contract and we were looking at the possibility of not having a place to live. Beth was incredibly supportive throughout that nightmare, handling all the paperwork, advising me on the contract, calling me to make sure I was okay, dealing with the builder, etc…A week later we found a property that was perfect. Beth set up the showing immediately and we made an offer. She drew up the final contract on Christmas Eve while on vacation, even though I told her that it could wait. She knew we wanted to move fast and didn’t hesitate to take time away from her family to help ours.
Then came the closing. We had a three-tiered closing and there were some hiccups along the way with my buyer and my buyer’s buyer on a personal level that couldn’t be avoided. There was a chance that we might miss our date and Beth informed me immediately (8 pm after we had already moved out.) Luckily, things worked out, everyone closed on time and we are in our new home which we love.
I realize this is an absurdly long review, but it was an absurdly long, frustrating, and emotional process that was made so much easier by having Beth in our corner. Her professionalism, knowledge, attentiveness, responsiveness to emails and texts was appreciated and comforting. We were not the easiest clients and this was not the easiest transaction, but Beth handled it all with stride. She also has a fun personality and I’m happy to call her my friend now. When we decide to buy a beach house, I’ll be calling Beth McCormick.
Beth and Dave were terrific to deal with through this whole process from selling our home to buying the new one. They handled every detail, answered all our questions and in the end made this a smooth and seamless transaction. We love our new home! I would highly recommend using Beth again.
