To Whom It May Concern,
During the winter of 2013, my wife Amy and I decided to invest in a property at the Outer Banks. Like many, we vacationed here often and enjoyed the family-friendly atmosphere and beautiful beaches. I spent countless hours searching MLS sites for various opportunities, making off-season trips and reading plenty of interesting and helpful articles..
Many of these articles promoted a Buyer Agent and, honestly, I thought I knew the value but many of the articles I found were posted by realtors. I knew I wanted someone to represent me when I found a house and didn’t need folks pestering me with sales calls.
I could not have been more wrong.
We engaged with Mike Nolan during one of our early searches. Mike took the time to understand what brought us here, what we were looking for and what a successful investment would be when we look back. Mike’s understanding of the market is extremely deep and his contacts up and down the peninsula are extensive. There are many people in the agent business as a second job or career, and many professional, but Mike’s understanding of the people and process proved invaluable.
We found what we thought was our property and Mike’s quick action and depth helped immediately to provide us first shot at the house. During the due diligence period we uncovered some issues that prevented us from investing. Mike talked it all through with us without pushing for a transaction and moving on as many may have done.
We started on a second home and knew immediately it was what we were looking for. Again Mike navigated us perfectly through the process. His response times were near immediate and he constantly communicated every step of the way. Just when we thought we were clear, a problem arose threatening our bid on the house. We were on the outside looking in as far as some were concerned.
We would not have this house today if it wasn’t for Mike’s professional depth, contacts and persistence. He had us protected the entire time and managed us through some rocky days. He educated other agents and was incredible in securing the house.
Thank you again Mike. And for any others reading this with interest in real estate investments, you will be in excellent hands with Mike on your team. Good luck in your search......
