My wife and I recently moved to Fayetteville, NC a place neither one of us knew much about besides research we (my wife) had done online. Prior to our arrival we had set up several showings for our second day in town a must because we would be living in a hotel (with two small children) until we found a home.
Besides having the showings set up ahead of time Kimela and Jamie (her partner) were already aware of what we wanted in a home to include the district and were able to find a couple additional homes we had not yet seen online (one of those homes is where we now reside!).
From start to finish, i.e. the entire home buying process both Kimela and Jamie were there every step of the way many times going above and beyond what I expected from an agent. I was able to call them whenever I had a question and if they didn't know the answer they always and I mean always followed up with a good answer.
For experienced and new home buyers if you want an agent you can trust and depend on then give these two a shot. Their knowledge of the area goes far beyond what homes are for sale as they have both lived in the area for a long time therefor they know Fayetteville and the surrounding area's intimately.
Thanks again Kimela and Jamie for making our buying experience painless and memorable!
After my husband got back from deployment in November we began seriously looking for a house after living in several apartments in the Fayetteville area. We had been searching for a while in Raeford and were getting overwhelmed. After one meeting with Kimela and Jamey we had put in an offer for a house and were moved in the weekend of Christmas.They walked us through the whole process and were so helpful. Whenever we needed them they were there and if they missed your call would always get back to you in a very timely manner. They make you feel like family each time you see them, they have wonderful personalities and are excellent at their jobs. Although our time with them was short, we know that at anytime if we had questions or concerns they are still available.
Kimela and Jayme are the most professional and knowledgeable agents around! They have a great sense of humor and make the selling/buying experience less stressful. They are straight and to the point with their selling/buying advice, they know the community, and they are very familiar with the market ups and downs. Not only would we highly recommend them (we already have) but if we have to move again, they are the agents we will call!
Both Jamie and Kimela were there for my husband and I when we needed them to buy a home. They knew he was leaving for a deployment in Afghanistane and listened intently on what we were looking for in a home and wanted no time in showing us houses that were ONLY in the parameters of what we wanted in a home. Mike and I went out with Jamie and Kimela and found our home in ONE day because of this, and closed in about a month! My husband and I LOVED working with these ladies and would recommend them to anyone for buying or selling a home. They are so fun to work with and work hard for you! Thank you both for everything!

What a gal!! She knows her business for sure! Always ready, day or night to help or answer questions!!! Her advertising is the best and getting the job done is what her profession is!!! Pick her and you will be satisfied!!!!!
We met Kimela about this time last year when we saw her number on a sign in front of a house that we wanted to look at. She jetted right over and showed it to us. She is so sweet and has a wonderful sense of humor we hit it of right off the bat. We know that she was the realter we wanted. She gave an honest opinion of a house. She is not pushie. We hate pushie sales people. We finally found the house of our dreams. Even after we found the house she kept working with us till the end. She is NOT afraid to ask the builders/owner any question. In my case haveing a gas stove where there was no gas. She asked and we now have a GREAT gas stove. You would think that after closing you wouldn't see her anymore. Not true she calls from time to time to see how we are doing and how we are liking the house. I can't express how great she is at her job. I'm so happy to have met her. She made it possable for me to get into the home of my dreams. BTW today is one year of owning this house and still loving it. Where did the time go? Thank you so much Kimela we wouldn't have this house if it wasn't for you
