When making a big decision, we all have our different requirements. We understand that our clients want to know what others are saying about the service(s) we provided for them. Getting the best for our clients is our #1 priority. Many of us take time to read reviews before buying products online and we believe it should be no different when hiring a real estate broker, to assist with this large investment. We would like you to judge us by what our past clients say about us.
"Winston is very professional and knowledgeable of the area and process. He is very easy to contact and prompt with all correspondence and procedures. His creativity and knowledge of different purchase methods was critical in getting the property I wanted. Enjoyed working with him and will use in future." Roland W., Manns Harbor, NC
"Whitney Hawkins is a consummate professional. She is totally connected in the Outer Banks community and does her job extremely well. We were completely satisfied with the service that she provided." Bill & Ellen Kealy, New York
"Whitney Hawkins is OBX's best kept secret. From giving you insider knowledge of the area to helping you with the entire home buying process, Whitney has held a HIGH state of caliber I have never seen before in ANY industry. Hands down. She had proven herself to the the BEST in her business with unmatched excellence. Whether negotiating or even walking through the entire mortgage process, Whitney has shown her passion in helping me as a client get the Best of the Best deal and made sure that the process is as stress free as possible. She holds a high ethical and moral standard and expects everyone who is working with her clients to be exactly the same. Very personable, charming, knowledgeable and charismatic, I'm glad that a friend recommended me to Whitney. If you need to buy or sell your property, I highly HIGHLY recommend Whitney and The Hawkins Team to help you." Dane , Richmond Virgina
“We could not have been more pleased! Whitney and Winston are true professionals who stood behind us from start to finish. No detail was left untouched and no business was left unfinished. We strongly recommend them.” Ralph & Ginger Webster, Southern Shores NC
"Winston and Whitney were a pleasure to work with. Winston was very patient and really took time to listen to what we were looking for in a house. They were both very knowledgable regarding all aspects of home buying, and always available to answer questions or concerns. Winston had excellent insight into the quality, construction, and value of homes, which was so very much appreciated. Would not hesitate to work with them again. They are a great team !" Areti & Mark, Washington DC
"Whitney and Winston set the standard that every real estate professional should aspire to. They worked tirelessly to make sure we found the ideal home for our entire family. Winston gave generously of his time, often during the evenings and weekends just to accommodate our limited schedule. Winston & Whitney selflessly took time away from their own family vacation just to help us negotiate the sale of our beautiful new home. From the first phone call to after closing, felt less like a part of the Hawkins Team and more a part of the Hawkins Family. I would say that I can't wait to work with the Hawkins Team again, but they already found us the perfect house this time." Bivins Family, Virginia
"Things I appreciate: Your immediate reply to my initial inquiry, professional guidance and answers to all of my questions, and use of technology for long distance transactions. Most of all you understood my personal feelings and took time when I needed it. After telling so many how much I appreciate your help with the sale of my lot, I wanted to say thank you." Pat Samson, Virginia
"Whitney and Winston are a dynamic duo. They were on target with their comps and recommended list price. While the average days on market for houses sold in Southern Shores/Kitty Hawk was 290 days they were able to sell our home in just 67 days! And we received 96% of our list price. They did everything well but one of the things that they did that truly impressed me was the aerial photos they took to show the relative proximity of the house to the ocean! The only things they could have done to make our experience even better was to have sat down over a bottle of champagne to celebrate together, which I'm sure they would have done had we had the time to do so! Thank you Whitney and Winston for treating us so well on our way to a speedy sale. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Spring/Summer!" D. Kern, Glen Allen, VA
"Cindy and I just wanted to say thanks for all your help selling our Duck house. I couldn't imagine having this much fun with any other Realtor. You're great agents and have got a great sense of humor. We look forward to future business relationships with you as well as your friendship. Thanks again!" Steve & Cindy Portelos, Yorktown, VA
"Whitney is the absolute best at representing sellers of property on the Outer Banks! Her dedication to our property. Her dedication to our property for many months paid off for us; as she continued to stay in contact with all who showed interest. We will refer our friends to her in the future." The Hall Family, VA
"It was a pleasure to work with Whitney- very professional, knows the Outer Banks market and understands trends and market pricing. I would highly recommend her whether you are selling or buying property on the Outer Banks- you will not be disappointed." Diane McCoy, Florida
"Whitney helped us buy and sell a home. I trust her completely and was very pleased with all of her efforts. She is trustworthy and very knowledgeable about the Outer Banks. I have recommended her to my friends and family." The Bernard Family, Southern Shores, NC
"As out-of-state, first-time buyers, it was important to us to find a Realtor knowledgeable about owning a rental property, hiring reputable contractors, which property management companies have a good track record, etc. Whitney and Winston, combined were everything we were looking for. They helped us find the perfect house for our needs and put us in contact with first-rate professionals. Even months after the sale, we know that the Hawkins Team is a great resource of information during our "rookie year" as rental property owners. Thanks Whitney and Winston. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to a friend!" Michael & Brenda Haas, Trafford, PA
"Whitney Hawkins is a true professional and did an excellent job of listing and selling our Nags Head home. Whitney performed a market analysis of our home and promoted it to the consumer as well as other active Realtors. Her attention to detail and follow up during the negotiation process gave us complete confidence. Whitney was proactive in anticipating and addressing any questions or concerns we might have had as homeowners. We would certainly recommend Whitney and the Hawkins Team to anyone buying or selling a vacation home or investment property on the Outer Banks." Lynn & Denny Britt, Cary, NC
"Whitney Hawkins came through for us in ways we couldn’t have imagined. I personally have purchased five homes in my life, and had no idea that Realtors could provide services like this. I cannot count the number of times Whitney asked "Do you want me to take care of that for you?" It must have been at least a dozen, if not more. She lined up every single inspection (there were four or five of those), she provided local experts for every conceivable need from insurance to title to manual labor, and she was just plain tireless. And, as my friends and acquaintances can guess, I never said "no" to any request to provide assistance. By the time we neared the end of the transaction Whitney had switched from asking if we wanted help to suggesting how she could make it easier for us. She is the real deal. If you want a house in the Outer Banks we cant imagine that theres a better option than Whitney. Full disclosure - Im not getting paid a dime for this. Whitney isnt a client. I wasnt asked for a quote or reference (something Ive been asked for in every other real estate transaction.) However, I fully intend to buy Whitney and her husband Winston a nice dinner as a thank you for all their great work. And if they want a vacation at Stokefire Southern Branch all they need to do is ask (though one has to wonder why someone would vacation about 10 miles from home. Oh; and on the off chance that Whitney does want to work with us we certainly wont turn her away. We see huge potential for a brand built from the base of services she provides. Many thanks to Whitney for her great work." Tate Linden, Washington, D.C.
