"When we met with Whitney and Winston regarding listing our home for sale we knew immediately they were the right team. Our decision was based on their promptness, professionalism, and knowledge of the market on the Outer Banks. Whitney was always available to us if we had a question or concern, and provided us with excellent, professional service every step of the way. We have since referred Whitney and Winston to friends of ours.” Joe and Tish Morabito, Kitty Hawk, NC


Whitney Hawkins is the real estate agent you need! Folks through my experience of buying and selling real estate in the OBX over the past 4 years one thing is certain; the success and fruitfulexperiences had is because of Whitney Hawkins! We could not have selected a more engaging, responsive, dependable, knowledgeable, faithful real estate agent when we decided to buy our first vacation home in Corolla just over 4 years ago. In short, no matter what your real estate needs (first time buyer to RE investor) you need Whitney Hawkins.  Details matter! I wish to express the great appreciation and respect I have for Whitney Hawkins as a real estate agent. I confess over four years of time and working with Whitney my wife and I have gotten to know her and her husband Winston Hawkins (Hawkins Real Estate Team) on a personal level and we do regard them as friends. Four years ago, my wife and I were out of state buyers (note at the time first time OBX buyers) and relied solely on our out of state licensed real estate agent parents to find us an OBX agent. Whitney came highly recommended and we decided to have her find our first home in Corolla. I mention this because I grew up around real estate as my parents were agents (one of which was also a licensed broker). I have seen the good, bad, and ugly if you will regarding real estate transactions. I understand what is expected and what makes a good agent; Whitney is not a good agent she is a GREAT agent! The few adjectives describing Whitney above do not do Whitney justice. She understands “details matter” as she has the knowledge to identify those details and the work ethic to see them resolved. Whitney uses her vast knowledge of the market (micro and macro) as a strong negotiator and partner in your real estate endeavors. Whitney goes above and beyond what is

required and serves her clients to the end. This has been exemplified on several occasions but none more than our last real estate purchase which closed in Fall of 2023 (Home Build). Whitney was there the whole step of the way checking on build progress, updating us regularly, regularly Face timing us on site, sending pictures, tracking and getting schedule updates from an unresponsive builders agent, working with builder on site representatives, inquiring on long lead items, working on punch list, meeting with furniture vendors to select furniture, relocating personal items from other properties, dealing with post COVID bank/lender fallout, closing attorneys, appraisers, etc. all while we were in another state. Whitney did what had to be done to make our dreams a reality. We couldn’t have done it without her and wouldn’t have wanted to! Please understand as a Civil Engineer it was hard to relinquish control but we trust Whitney.  Again, Whitney’s vast knowledge, work ethic and professional representation are invaluable. As mentioned in the beginning, Whitney Hawkins is the realtor you need! She is a great real estate agent and someone you can trust! THANK YOU WHITNEY and WINSTON! Sean and Zsofia Hole


"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 him in the 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. 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 Virginia


“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 knowledgeable 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."  sThe 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 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.)  from home.. Many thanks to Whitney for her great work."   Tate Linden, Washington, D.C.
