    "Your Full-time, Overtime, Anytime OBX Realtor"
    Welcome! Whether you're an experienced homebuyer, real estate investor, or shopping for your first home, I will help make your experience the best it can be. My customer-focused approach has worked to help my clients throughout the Outer Banks! I work in this environment daily, understand the risks and outcomes associated with investing in real estate in this economy, and will work with you to minimize exposure while maximizing gain.

    If you're thinking about buying, you can make some great deals right now. My focus is on finding you the right property, negotiating your absolute best price and making sure closing happens quickly and smoothly. I'll take care of everything, from finding your perfect home to handing you the keys.

    For sellers, I believe in proper pricing and intelligent marketing. This tends to negate protracted market time (less time on market means more time to live your life). If you're considering selling, you should know that I provide a number of services at no cost to you which other agents won't even offer you. If you'd like to know exactly what I can do for you and how much you could get for your home, just contact me.

    Bought a home in 2014.

    Hugh Willey is the go to real estate agent. We were very please with his expertise with the properties available to us and helping us find it so quickly. We were impressed with the short turn around time to closing; as we closed within a few weeks. Mr. Willey was professional, knowledgeable and quick to respond to our every request. We would recommend him to our family and friends should they ever need an agent in his area. We appreciated his attentiveness to us. Thanks, Hugh.  More Less

    Sold a home in 2014.

    Hugh Willey was fantastic! He helped us find and buy a home in 2009 and sell it in 2014. He knew all about the different towns and areas in the Outer Banks. He has been a builder and owner so he knows a whole lot of details that come in extremely valuable. He helps recommend vendors that he has had positive results and uses your feedback if you experience any issues before, during, and even after the home was bought and sold.  More Less

    Bought a home in 2014.

    We contacted Scooter out of the blue, based on his good reviews here on Zillow. That's why we chose him. He represented us in our purchase of an oceanfront home that we had toured for 15 mins. through the seller's agent on a whim, while we were in the Outer Banks on vacation.

    When we decided to move forward, we knew we wanted our own buyer's agent. Scooter was a god-send. He tackled a hundred small details for us, from walking the cable/internet transfer paperwork to the local office to jimmying the owner's closet lock after our purchase, when we realized the seller's never had a key for themselves to pass to us.

    Without Scooter's proactive and detailed help, we would not have closed as quickly as we did (about 21 days after putting in the offer), and I can only imagine how more difficult it would have been doing all this remotely without him, negotiating and working through closing from out of state. Scooter always responded immediately to my calls and emails. I can't figure out how he does it all so effortlessly.

    I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell. And since I found him out of the blue based on his good Zillow reviews, I'm paying it forward with this review of him, so others can make a great decision, as I did, and choose him for their agent.
