Testimonials

Working with Sarah was a wonderful experience. We actually came to Southport just to visit, with no intention whatsoever of investing in real estate, but fell in love and knew this was where we wanted to build our retirement home. Sarah accommodated us at the last minute, spending two hectic days going to house after house and property after property, answering our multitude of questions, filling us in on the town and surrounding area, advising and ultimately negotiating the deal for us. Her warm and friendly demeanor never wavered, all while being professional, prompt and courteous. We look forward to calling her neighbor and friend.

We met Sarah Smith in 2008. We were considering buying and relocating to North Carolina, we just didn’t know where. We walked into an open house where we met Sarah and immediately felt welcomed by her southern charm, friendly personality and realty knowledge. We left that day feeling pretty confident that we would be buying in Southport, NC. We stayed in touch and came back and signed the paperwork, built our home in 2009 and have remained friends.

I don’t know how we would have done this venture without the help and guidance of Sarah. We trusted her completely. Sarah’s communication skills and work ethic are outstanding and she handled this process from start to completion. She worked with our builder daily and guided us every step of the way. We cannot thank her enough. She is THE BEST!

Welcome to Southport! That about sums up our experience with Sarah C. Smith of Southport Realty. We met Sarah on our first trip to Southport searching for a retirement home and we never looked back. Sarah made us feel at home and welcome from the first moment. Through relaxed conversation and a brief tour she quickly honed into our vision and we found exactly what we were looking for on day one. Our path led to building a home in Southport which we then did from afar. Sarah’s support throughout the process was priceless. Sarah put us in touch with all the local help we would need and even spent a weekend with me picking out cabinets, countertops, fixtures and paint. Beyond her small town kindness and warmth Sarah is the consummate professional who holds herself to the highest standards and prides herself in knowing the market she is promoting. We could not be happier with our new home and our new friend in Southport.

Starting our house search, my wife and I randomly contacted a realty office in Southport, NC. We were lucky to connect with Sarah Smith! We met at her office where we reviewed homes and proceeded to look at all the houses that met our requirements of price, location and style. Sarah was enthusiastic and tireless from beginning to end and filled us in with details about the area. Although we didn’t find a house that first day, a new property came the last day we were there. With some trepidation, as we were leaving the following morning, Sarah quickly arranged for us to see it first. It was the right one for us! Sarah did not only see us through the negotiations and contract signing. She also arranged the inspection; negotiated repairs needed in the contract and followed through with inspection of that work. She also recommended insurance agents and efficiently cleared up glitches that occurred. Much of what she did was above and beyond what we expected and of great comfort since we do not yet live in the area. Sarah communicated with us every step of the way, routinely checking in with our long distance transaction. Sarah was professional in every sense and we recommend her highly! She is a delight!

Sarah fulfilled all of our expectations and went far beyond. We couldn’t have asked for a more impressive, kind, encouraging, and patient realtor who provided expertise that only a well-seasoned experienced and extremely professional realtor could provide. No question that in the future when we make our transition back to sunny coast of North Carolina that we will use Sarah for all of our real estate needs. If you ever wondered who can I trust, who will have the expertise to accomplish the task at hand to find for myself and my loved ones a high quality, beautiful place to call home, or to sell your house in a flash, I urge you to call Sarah. We love her!!!!!!

Sarah Smith has handled two transactions for us – one as our buying agent, and one as our selling agent. I can’t recommend her highly enough! She is intelligent, knows every neighborhood in Southport, has a professional and friendly demeanor and is a delight to work with! Sarah’s husband, Cameron Smith, is a local builder and together their knowledge of every aspect of building, buying and selling homes can’t be matched. We are moving to Southport this summer and wouldn’t consider anyone else to handle our next real estate venture.

We recently located to NC from upstate NY. Prior to making our home in Southport we spent a year in another community in NC. We cannot express how grateful we are to Sarah for her professionalism. She was not our broker, but represented the builder we purchased from. Both my husband and I were so impressed with her knowledge and expertise, that we will certainly use her for all of our future real estate transactions. We would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to any of our family and friends.
