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 is amazing. She made the process of buying my first time home actually fun! There are so many issues to navigate, but I always felt confident that Lisa was on top of everything I needed to do to close on my dream house in time. Lisa is an amazing advocate and the best team leader you could hope for when buying a home.
Lisa is absolutely amazing!! She made the process of buying our house easy and selling our townhome a breeze. We found out the house we wanted was going up on the market before it actually did and Lisa was right there trying to get us the house of our dreams! She came through and helped us snag the perfect house for our family!! I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking or even thinking about buying or selling!
Lisa helped me purchase a home in North Raleigh, and I couldn't have been more pleased. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and aggressive when warranted. She was also a lot of fun, and that helped make the whole experience excellent. I don't know what we would have done without her, but thanks to Lisa we got exactly what we wanted for a price we thought fair. Highly recommend!
Lisa helped my family and I purchase a home in Cary. She made a normally nerve wracking experience, fun and smooth. Her professionalism and knowledge gave us confidence and a lovely new home.
Lisa sets the bar for service, both when buying and selling. My husband and I have worked with her three, going on four times in the Raleigh area.She communicates well and never leaves you wondering what the status is. If there's a potential issue, she is prepared with a recommendation in hand for how to handle it, but will always respect your final decision as the client. When buying she listens to what you are looking for, and always seems to find it, but will not rush you into any decisions (but will also let you know if it's going to sell the first day it's on the market). When selling, she works for you and manages the demands of buyer firmly yet fairly. In short, she knows her stuff!
Working with Lisa was a lot of fun. We purchased a home with her and then used her to sell our previous one. Her knowledge of the market and experience made us feel comfortable and that we could completely trust her advice. She would point out things she saw that could be problems, but still let us make up our own minds. Plus, we knew that when we needed it, she would go to the mat for us.
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.
Lisa Coleman is an excellent Realtor. Her knowledge of Real Estate is exemplary. She has extensive knowledge of the community. As a mortgage lender, I can count of Lisa and her team to assist in getting her loans closed on time. I highly recommend Lisa to any home buyers.
Lisa is my “go to” for anything real estate related and has helped us to purchase more than one home! We appreciate her insight and valuable experience as well as her quick and forthright communication. The entire team at Carolina Midtown makes the process run smoothly and gives you confidence that you have gotten the best value in your purchase.
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
Lisa Coleman was incredible to work with. She was professional, responsive and extremely knowledgeable. Our purchase and closing was seamless and I was so grateful for her time and patience.
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.
