I have personally used Nora's services multiple times over the past 20 years in both the buying and selling of real estate. She functions equally well as both a buyers or sellers agent and is always a step ahead of the market. A thorough professional, she is a hands on type of person who communicates well and is even a certified home stager at no extra cost to the seller! Her sterling reputation precedes her... Highly recommended!
We had a great experience working with Nora to find our home in Wilmington, NC. When we first contacted her, we were not even committed to moving to the area and were not ready to buy a house, but she still spent several days driving us around neighborhoods in New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties to help us see the different communities and types of houses typically available in our price range. She also was quite helpful with suggestions, networking contacts, and potential commercial locations for a new business I was planning to open. By the end of that trip, my wife and I were sold on the area, and we had made a new friend.
When we came back to actually find a home, Nora showed how well she had learned our tastes and budget, focusing our search on some great options. I was impressed that she did not just try to sell us a house-- she made sure we were aware of potential concerns, e.g., a future highway planned near one development. We were able to find the perfect home in a few productive days.
Although we did not have experience with new construction, fortunately that is an area of expertise for Nora. She not only helped us to make color and material selections, but she was also a true advocate for us in negotiations with the builder. I am convinced that we got several more options and added features for the same price, as a result of Nora's help. Bottom line, we highly recommend Nora Ruehle to help you find your next home!
Nora was very helpful through an extended sales process. We (the sellers) had relocated and were no longer in the area, and she acted as our local representative not only with potential buyers, but with handymen, site engineers, surveyors, etc. She made valuable recommendations for the work needed and staged the home beautifully for showing. We would not hesitate to recommend her.
