Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Havelock, NC.
Primary point of contact: Harold Gilbert
We worked with Harold Gilbert and greatly appreciated his expertise, knowledge of the area and professionalism. He showed no hesitation at all when we asked to view a second house the next day even though he had to come from Morehead City to show us the house. Would highly recommend!
After 2.5+ years of trying to sell our house, I am *SO* thrilled that we finally closed on it! Thanks to our amazing realtors for sticking with us the entire way and making this happen! I HIGHLY recommend NC Coastal Properties Gena Gilbert Real Estate if you're looking to buy or sell in the area. They are simply amazing.
Gena and Harold are an absolute pleasure to work with!! Besides being very knowledgeable about the real estate market as a whole, they are continually there to help. Even though they are no doubt very busy, they always take the time to answer any and all questions we have as if we were their only client-they are both prompt and thorough in their correspondence. Throughout the process of selling our home, they have continually kept us up to date every step of the way. They have always put our needs before their own, just as their slogan says; their goal is to help us, even if that means sacrifice. Thank you to Gena Gilbert Real Estate for making an otherwise stressful process something that we didn't feel like we were going through alone! I would recommend these realtors to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Morehead City, NC.
Gena and Harold are terrific! This is the third house they have sold for me in two years. They know the real estate business and they know how to successfully market a property to get it sold. They do a lot of work comparing market values and surrounding houses and give the seller or the buyer honest advice. They have an excellent reputation in the community and among their peers and they genuinely care about their clients. I definitely would use Gena and Harold if I move again - they are super!
I never met with Gina, instead her husband, Harold, showed up for our first appoinment. He seemed very snarky, pushy & didn't listen to anything we said we wanted in a home. He only sent us a list of possibilities one time and each of those houses started at $50,000 over our max price. From that point on, I found the home's myself online & he just showed up to let us in & try to make a sale by stating "homes are selling fast, this is the best you've seen." After a couple week's we cancelled our contract & went with a different agency. Happy to say we found a home within one week with our new Realtor!
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $225K in Swansboro, NC.
We began looking at the Crystal Coast area for retirement in 2007, and were very fortunate to link up with Gena and Harold Gilbert. They kept us informed on what was available in the area in our price range, and we would make quick trips to the coast where they would take us to view these homes. We purchased and moved into our current home in 2008 and were so thankful we had their skills to guide us through the challenges of the buying experience which had just become more complicated in late 2008.
They have the knowledge and expertise to deal with a changing market and are thoroughly familiar with the entire Crystal Coast area. They also have the patience and flexibility to deal with buyers (like us) who were totally unfamiliar with housing in the area.
Having now lived in the area for 3 years, we truly recognize how fortunate we were to have selected Gena Gilbert Real Estate.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Morehead City, NC.
Gena and Harold are super and truly work very hard for their client. They always answered or returned my calls and took time to answer every question. Both of them were awesome about going to see MANY houses before I chose one. They know the Real Estate business inside and out and did a lot of advertising in various markets for my house. They are both extremely professional.
They showed my house a couple of time a week - every week. I also appreciated and enjoyed the newsletter they send - very helpful information. And they find out what you want in a home and then e-mail you house listings that you may be interested in. It saves the potential buyer a lot of time.
Gena and Harold are super people - I just love them. I highly recommend them.
