David was thorough in his evaluation of comparative homes on the market when advising us of a listing price, and made astute recommendation of items which would help improve the presentation, and most importantly, salability of our home.
I think he priced our house well and the proof was that we received very close to the asking price; we were extremely pleased with his advice. He was also marvelous to work with and always returned calls promptly; genuine, personable and caring....that's how we found him to be.
He and Carolina's Choice get our highest marks and when/if we sell our new home, they will get the listing....wouldn't even consider a full-boat agency.

GREAT way to save money, we would do it again and we recommended David & Courtney to friends of ours already....however do not expect the same level of quick response time as you would with a traditional realtor, we felt like we had to always ask for information and we felt we didn't get it promptly, BUT the money factor out weighs that in the end.
Very nice folks too!

David was very helpful with suggestions on preparing our house to be market ready. The house sold in two weeks so I think that pretty much sums it up!! They did a great job keeping us in the loop and walking us through every step of the process. I have recommended them to several of our friends.

We listed our home with David & Courtney Wilson (Carolina's Choice Real Estate) and couldn't be more pleased. We had a full-price offer within 4 hours of our first showing! In our pre-listing meeting with David, we discussed the particular upsides and downsides to the price we wanted to ask for the house. Other realtors had said it was not possible to get even close to what we wanted in the current market and we would be wasting our time. However, David believed we were in a "sweet spot" due to very low inventory in our area, house size and price-range and thus felt we could achieve our price and David was right. David was positive, on-point, prompt, and the sale and subsequent inspections, negotiations, signing of papers, etc. proceeded flawlessly. We highly recommend David & Courtney Wilson of Carolina's Choice as your realtor of choice. You absolutely will get the best service out there without needlessly spending thousands of $$ in commission fees.

It was a very positive experience working with David and Courtney on the sell of our home. They were very knowledgeable about the entire process from the very beginning until the closing. There were some tense periods of negotiations during the contracting period as well as those related to the inspection and they steered us in the right direction. I see no difference in the quality of the service provided by them as a discount firm from what you might receive with a full-fee firm. We think they were better! We can't understand why anyone would go elsewhere. Thanks!
I cannot say enough about my experience with Davis and his wife Courtney! They are both wonderful to deal with.....professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I originally used David for his $199 flat fee package to advertise our condo unit. This provided great exposure as well as MLS listing. After two offers came in on our unit, my husband and I agreed that we were not good at negotiating nor did we understand the real estate language terms... due diligence comes quickly to mind! We actually lost two contracts on our unit because we became too emotional with the buyer's agent and the stipulations they offered. When we had a third contract, I immediately called David. He put me into his premium package which basically meant he held my hand throughout the sale! David negotiated the sale, made suggestions for time frames, and then Courtney's expertise was needed. The buyer's had a home inspection and some minor issues needed addressed. Courtney knew a contractor to call and he immediately took care of our repair list. She gave me a list of what the closing attorney needed and went to closing for me. I am three hours away, so that made life VERY simple! I cannot describe the peace of mind I got from dealing with David and Courtney. We went from frenzied to sold! Do not hesitate to call them. We are glad we did!

Great realtor. Fantastic deal for what you pay for. I would use him again and recommend him to family and friends. The only reason i dinged him for responsiveness is he tends to be a 9-5 type of realtor and if you call with a question out of those hours you're probably not going to get an answer. I don't really fault him for that considering he is an al a cart type of realtor.
Response from David on 08/24/2013
Although I do appreciate the feedback, I respectfully disagree with the 9-5 Realtor assessment. I work for my clients 7 days a week and mostly 12 hour days. I do have a family and they deserve some of my time as well.

David did a great job putting our house on the market and getting us through the process. He was extremely responsive and respected everything we wanted out of the sale of our home. What a great value for the amount of hands-on service. Courtney also gave timely responses and got us through the closing with no issues. She was able to solve problems before they ever needed to reach us.
We would certainly recommend David and Courtney's services. For a group that works throughout the RTP area and has to juggle a lot of listings, they don't waste time and outperform expectations!
