I had tried to contact other agents to show us lots and homes and not much luck finding one interested in showing us what was available. I figured because we were not looking at the mega beach homes, no one wanted to take the time. This was not the case with Scooter. We live 400 miles away and on our short trip to look, took us everywhere we asked to see and found others. He found a home only on the market a short time and we feel in love with it and area it is located. There were many hurdles along the way, and Scooter was always available for calls and checking on things at the house. Buying house hundreds of miles away, trying to get our loan, attorneys, every step Scooter took care of things there for us. We did not just find our realtor, I feel like we made our first friend in OBX.
Went out of his way to obtain information requested about some issues. Quick to respond through E-mails and phone calls. Answered and explained questions in an easy to understand way. I need more characters to make this review valid. I hope this is enough.
Was not very successful with another realtor who listed my home for approximately eight months.
After listing with Mr. Hugh Willey two offers were received within a month, one of which was accepted.
There were many situations before closing that required the attention of Mr. Willey, all were handled very practically and professionally.
Would highly recommend "Scooter" to anyone needing a very capable realtor

Hugh was great in helping us find and purchase our Outer Banks home. He is intimately familiar with all aspects of the real estate purchase process in the outer banks area. I'd recommend him in a second. He is always returns calls and emails in a timely fashion. When it was time to actually make an offer on a house, he negotiated us an even better price than the already pretty good listed one. If you are in the real estate market in the Outer Banks area, please give him a call.

Hugh was extremely helpful from start to finish. We live over six hours away so we depended on Hugh being our eye and ears for us during the entire purchase process. Even while he was away on vacation he took time to assist us with items that cropped up and needed attending to. He did a great job for us. Should we have the need in the future we will definitely contact Hugh!
Scooter did an amazing job helping us with our move from Norfolk VA to Nags Head, he was always available and found just the right people to finalize the purchase of our condo. I would recommend Scooter to anyone interested in the Outer Banks, he listens to what you want and really goes out of his way to find it.
Scooter was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely patient, responsive and accessible during the entire process. He bent over backwards during the entire showing and purchasing process. "That's not my job" isn't even in his vocabulary, and even now that the sale is wrapped up he continues to be an excellent resource to us. If you are looking to purchase a property in OBX - be it rental, or to live in, I wouldn't look anywhere else. Scooter made my wife and I feel like we were his only client!
Last spring I inquired about a Currituck County, NC property and several agents responded; however Scooter was the most persistent agent (in a good way) in contacting me to see if he could help in anyway. I told him that's why I selected him to show us more houses and we are happy we worked with him. He is super knowledgeable about the Outer Banks and surrounding areas and also showed us a home in Knott's Island, NC. He kept in contact with us when I was discouraged and thought we'd never find our dream location and future retirement home. One day he called and said "Carol I think I found a house you might like" and sure enough it's the one we ended up buying. He always got back to us within a few minutes when we texted or emailed. Scooter guided us through the whole process and since we live in Virginia Beach now and couldn't be at the new house, he even unlocked the house for the security technicians the day after the closing so they had access to install our new security system.
If you are looking for a dependable, hardworking, honest agent who looks out for your best interests, please do yourself a favor and call Scooter! He gets results!

A superb experience by a true "A" team! Scooter and his wife Gerri, reflect the good old days of great customer service. His sense of urgency and sense of purpose was absolutely amazing. There was not one question left unanswered, he truly lives to make property ownership dreams come true and there was never a challenge too tough! They have become true friends and we will stay in touch.
