Very satisfied with Hometowne Realty. We looked at several homes, including foreclosed ones, before settling on a house we loved after we were referred by my husband's friend. Our agent even helped us in selling our previous home, and we had offers pretty quickly.
Valerie Dupree had a buyer and an offer for us in 23 days and we received close to our asking price. There were problems with closing that she and HTR had no control over. She did an excellent job dealing with these problems and our home finally closed.
Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $200K in Clayton, NC.
I was from out of state, looking to relocate to the Johnston County area. Peggy Cobb spent considerable time in understanding my specifications and then showing me properties when I visited Clayton.
She handled the negotiation and sales transaction right up to the day of Closing while I remained out of state, and followed up to get a crew in my new home (at my expense) to thoroughly clean floors, windows and walls after Closing so it was ready for occupancy when my furniture arrived.
Just prior to the arrival of my furnishings, she personally inspected my new residence again to ensure all work had been satisfactorily completed!
We can't say too many wonderful things about Valerie. She has exceeded all our expectations and then some!! Most agents would have given up on us but not Valerie. She has been encouraging and helpful in everything we have done. It took a year and a half to realize we needed to build the home of our dreams. Valerie was a BIG part of making that happen. Valerie interviewed builders with us and took copious notes; she went brick and stone and kitchen cabinet shopping and to the lawyer's office for two closings. Always helpful and insightful, she has been our eyes and ears during this process and more important, our trusted advisor every step of the way.
We are now in the first phase of building and hope to be in our 'forever' home this August/September. It is a dream come true and we will always be grateful to Valerie for her knowledge, loyalty, hard work and above all, patience.

I have used Hometowne Realty twice now, to buy our first home, and then several years later to sell that home and buy a different one. I have been delighted. Our realtor Valerie Dupree has excellent knowledge of the market, and I truly feel I would never have sold our home so quickly without her. She is friendly, honest and fair, a delight to work with. The agency was also great to work with. A +++!!!
Home Towne Realty has worked with us both as listing agent and as a buyers' agent in separate transactions to assist us with finding the perfect home and property. We count ourselves very fortunate that they were available to assist us with each transaction. They certainly went above and beyond to make sure every detail was covered and that we were informed with each step along the way. VERY PROFESSIONAL team - not only from the agents but the office personnel as well. Their name really does say it all about them . . . they treat you with that small Home Towne touch as if you had been their friend for a lifetime. You really know they have your best interests at heart. I plan to use them in the future as WELL!
