"Nancy and her team of Agents found the perfect home for us in a time crunch and went well beyond the normal in helping us. Nancy is very detailed about the requirements a homeowner needs and listens to her customers. We also sent her our daughter and son-in-law when they needed a home and results were as professional as our experience. We will use the Cashwells team again."

Richard B

"Nancy was our broker for our last home sale. She knew the market, and helped us understand the minor changes we needed to make to our home to maximize its appeal. We sold our house at a reasonable price, under time constraints, in a tough market. Thanks, Nancy."

Monty A

"The Best,"

Mark M

"New to the area, we would have had no idea where to look for a home but Nancy was able to help us identify what was important to us, narrow our search and find us a place with only four days in town to get it done. And we had three kids in tow."

Laird H

"Nancy is a very personable realtor, well organized, always willing to answer questions whether from sellers or potential buyers. Based upon my experience working with her, I am now pleased to consider her a friend."

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston agent was the BEST Realtor we have ever worked with. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable of the area but she was very responsive to our needs and timeline. She always gave sound advice and also, didn't bug us to death when we said we just wanted time to think. She is extremely patient and understanding. She has an eagle eye when it comes to critiquing homes, properties and neighborhoods. With her in the lead, we were able to find the PERFECT home for us, in the PERFECT neighborhood and of course the PERFECT location! I'm handing out her business card to all my friends!!!

Diane P.

"Nancy and I have worked together and assisted common clients for a period in excess of twenty years. She has consistently provided excellent service to her real estate customers in my view and provided them with assistance at the highest possible professional level. I highly recommend her to real estate customers or potential employers. Chris Wyne" April 13, 2011

Chris Wyne

"My wife Carrie and I worked with Nancy for the purchase of our first home and what a great experience it was! She was patient and answered all of our questions and took the time to explain the whole home buying process. I highly recommend her and wish you much success in your real estate needs!"

Brian Q

"Nancy helped me sell and purchase homes in 1998. We had several challenges in the process but she was able to coach us with professional guidance that resulted in us closing our sale at a higher price than another agent had proposed. She provided us with a detailed market analysis a few years ago on our rental property. She is thorough, conscientious, and reliable. I will always first consider Nancy as a friend but I will not hesitate to call her when I have a real estate need."

"Nancy Cashwell handled two real estate transactions for my wife and I when we sold a house in Raleigh and at the same time were building another. She is the very definition of the word professional and is someone who a buyer ( and seller) can trust in ANY market. We have been very happy and would definitely use her services again. IF you are looking for an agent who knows her industry and has high integrity and is always working for her customers, then Nancy Cashwell is the professional I would recommend without a doubt."
