Buying a Home in Raleigh, NC
Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple.
Before you start looking for a home you should ask yourself a few questions:
- Where do you want to live? Are there particular neighborhoods or communities that you like?
- What kind of house would you like (need)? Are you looking for a particular style? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
- Is a home office a necessity? Do you need a bonus room or flex-room?
- Do you entertain often? Is a home suitable for entertaining something you’re looking for?
- Do you want a yard, pool, gated or guard gated community?
- Have you determined your price range or consulted a lender to determine the best price range?
Searching for your dream home can be a time-consuming experience. Working with our professional team will make the process much more efficient!
We had the pleasure of working alongside of John as we made our decision to build our home. From our first meeting, John demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the builder’s product, clearly communicated the options we could explore, and thoroughly answered a multitude of questions. He provided full visibility into the process and remained available to us even after closing. We could not have asked for a better partner to assist us along the way.
I was only in Raleigh for two weeks when I met John while shopping online looking for a house. John immediately contacted me and has been by my side this whole process and has made my relocating so easy. His knowledge about many things is very helpful along with keeping things proceeding forward in a timely matter.. to be honest I have bought and sold three houses and John is the best agent I have ever worked with. Thank you John for making this transition so easy.
I was going to do everything on my own until I met John at an Open House. I felt at ease with his guidance and experience. Thanks again John
John's knowledge of new construction was amazing. He was able to set my expectations for the whole 9 month building schedule. It was so helpful to know what was going to happen next and John handled any problems that came up, many times before I even knew there was any problem. I'd highly recommend John
Lisa helped me purchase my first home right out of college, later sell it, as well as sell my parent's home. Little did I know that later in life I too would become a REALTOR. Lisa's patience, care, knowledge, and level of service helped shape how I aspired to conduct my own real estate business. She has remained an inspiration, a friend, and the REALTOR that I refer all my clients moving to the Raleigh area.
Very professional relaxed guy. Gave us great insights as first timers home buyers and just made us feel at ease with the whole process. Love this guy.
We had an excellent experience with John as our realtor. He was the perfect real estate agent for us. As first time home buyers he was patient and willing to answer and explain everything to us to make sure we understood all there was to know about home buying. On site visits he was hands off allowing us to navigate and explore the home and make our own decisions. He would always give us his truthful oppinion when we would ask him questions. He never tried to force us into a purchase we were not ready to make. He was always upfront, honest, and direct about what he thought and we trusted his guidance with every decision we made. He was able to swiftly navigate us through all the ups and downs and ultimately get us into our new home. We couldn't be happier with our experience and wouldn't have wanted anybody else helping us find a home during this current housing market craze. We will 100% be seeking his services again with future home purchases.
John of Carolina Midtown Realty is hands down the most attentive, knowledgeable, and professional realtor I have ever had the pleasure to meet. John helped us to find our very first home in the most perfect neighborhood! John went above and beyond to ensure that we were informed and understanding of everything that goes along with buying a home— as first time home-owners this was incredibly helpful for all of our decision-making. John is SO easy to work with— knowledgeable of the local area, responsive to calls, emails, and all of our questions. He cared the most for our wants and needs and is always willing to go out of his way to help! He’s incredibly kind and personable and we absolutely cannot recommend him enough. We had the best experience purchasing our new home and most of this is attributed to John and Carolina Midtown Realty. Thanks again for for all that you have done! We are so happy with our perfect first home! —Cara & Freddy
John was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area, moving from out of state we didn't know the area at all, which also meant we couldn't travel much due to COVID, he was very accommodating and would conduct facetime video showings for us. Choosing a home through Video was tough but in the end, through his hard work and attention to detail we found the perfect home for us. Definitely would recommend John.
