Tell Us Your Story

Christine is a true professional.

She has been so patient as we have wanted to see so many different homes. This is our first house, and even though we haven't found :"the one" yet, I know with her guiding us, we will.

Jennifer and Jacob Flanagan

Tyler assisted us in purchasing our very first home and it was a seamless process!

He is so easy to talk to and was so helpful the whole process. Really made the process easy and most importantly FUN! You won’t regret choosing Tyler as your realtor!

Heather Beaston

I have work with other realtors in selling other properties that I had owned.

Sherry was awesome. She answered all questions, she cleared her calendar to accommodate my schedule, and during the last two months showed me properties that met my specifications. I felt like I had made a friend in the community. I would willingly recommend her to friends and families. I can’t thank her enough as she made this transaction effortless for me.


Above and Beyond is the best way to describe the service we received from Christine!

! We touched base with Christine while we were still living in Colorado. We told her about our plans to move to Clayton and she set us up with her website to start our home search. We spoke with her many times throughout the next few months and she continued to refine our searches as to what we were looking for. In July, I made a visit to the area and Christine took me out for about 3 hours to look at houses in the area and to further refine our search criteria. Once we move to Clayton in August, Christine was over the top available to us to talk and tour homes. I don't know when she found time to sleep. Christine found us an amazing home that we love, and even negotiated to get us the home below asking price. We would recommend Christine to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!!

"If you are in the market to buy or sell, Tracy Riba is the only choice for a Realtor.

Tracy made the process smooth and efficient and made us feel important no matter how simple our questions were. I would recommend no one else!"

Dave F

"Valerie goes out of her way to make the transactions go smoothly.

She is very knowledgeable and I would recommend her without any reservation ????. We had a contract on our home within a week. Before we listed the home Valerie made recommendations to “show” our home. I think we had about 5 showings the first week and had a contract very soon." naphap 27520

Jim Nappier

Sherry was the consummate professional throughout the process.

She was dedicated to the process, considerate of all involved, communicated well and followed up after the closing.

Brian & Nicole

Amy was wonderful throughout our home selling process.

We were kept informed, given great advice and she walked us through every step of this stressful endeavor. Amy is a real estate agent who lets you know you, and your home, are her first priority when it comes to selling your home. Please contact Amy if you want a positive home selling experience.

Todd Hewlett

We used Mrs Fann to sell our home in Benson NC.

from the start she was attentive and knowledgeable of the local housing market. She was easy to communicate with and returned inquiries promptly. When the sellers bank wanted outrageous demands she ran interference and handled all the time consuming details. She even went to closing to allow us to focus on our own employment. Amy was great and we highly recommend her!

Kim Wood

"I highly recommend Joey Millard-Edwards and her team.

They did a fantastic job in letting us know what was going on with our property. The property was shown several times and we were notified promptly before the showing and results were forwarded to us promptly afterwards. You can depend on this Realtor and her team and I would recommend you placing the sell of any property with them."

Sam & Peggy

Sherry was a absolute pleasure to have as my realtor!

Sherry never left any questions I had unanswered and always responded promptly. I highly recommend her.


Valerie Dupree is an excellent Realtor.

She assisted us with selling our first home and buying our second home. Most recently, Valerie sold my father's house. Both of the houses sold in less than nine days. Valerie is kind, compassionate, and generous. She has an extensive network of resources to assist with needs associated with selling and buying and is well known and respected in Johnston County. Our family highly recommends Valerie!

Julie G

I worked with Sherry to purchase my new home and she was amazing.

After working with a number of real estate agents previously, I was frustrated but she helped me through every step of the process. She turned what could have been a confusing and complex process into a streamlined, smooth experience. I cannot recommend her enough.


It's taken me too long to write this, but likely because Sam has never asked one thing of us ever including a review.

That's how easy she is to work with. She was recommended to us by another great realtor and this started as an out of state purchase and then out of state new construction. If you've done either of these then you may not need the endless list of work she did for us. Sam worked with us for about 7 months or so on this purchase and we appreciate all the video tours and chats, all the inspections and things she lined up for us so we could focus on moving, all the advice, and the hand-holding. She never missed a thing and was amazing to have on our side.


I had an excellent experience with the Nicole Orringer Team!

Sherry Byrd worked very closely with me, and she is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough and organized. She was determined to help me get my dream home, and we succeeded! The team was with me throughout the process, from loan approval to closing, and promptly responded to any questions or needs I had. They even gave me a final electronic folder containing all of the numerous important electronic documents that I will need for my records. The entire process was as seamless as the process can be.


Valerie Dupree is helpful, patience, cares about what you want to accomplish.

She keeps you informed on what is happening. She promptly answer your questions if she doesn't know she researches to find out the answers.

M Hargis

I used to think I wanted to be a realtor.

..until I became a home seller and buyer! Christine Stilley helped me more than I can put into words. She set up THE best photographer, did multiple open houses, actively marketed on Facebook and social media, and I even saw her sweeping my driveway one day. Not to mention that she brought me a cash offer with a fast closing! Being a single mom and first time buyer of a home on my own, I had no idea where to go for lending. She sent me to Kea Blivens with Homespire Mortgage. Within a week I was approved and all set!! Me!! Approved for a loan on my own!! If you are thinking that is all she did for me...wait for it...there is more. As a home buyer I had zero clue what I was looking for. So in a seller’s market, house shopping we went (and went, and went, and went). I am embarrassed to say that I had her write seven offers on homes before the right one worked out. SEVEN!!! No offer I could make in this market would go through. Until we found the right one. Standing in the kitchen during the showing I had goose-bumps all over and I knew it was THE one. She walked me through the offer and within 30 days I have sold and bought a new home. I cannot express in words what Christine Stilley has done for me and my family. My life is in a better place due to her persistence, dedication, knowledge, and her professionalism. She is the most amazing realtor I’ve ever met.Thank you, Christine, for everything!!

Alisa Coble

"Thank you Tracy Riba for all your help and working so hard to make this process so smooth!

Yall, if you're needing a Realtor, this is your gal! From the planning to signing the house away she made the process easy. She gave great advice and feedback. Her diligent work paid off big time! While we were readying our house for listing, she was putting the word out that it was coming. We had our first showing within 6 hours of our listing going live and first offer in less than 24 hours. In 4 days, we accepted a full price offer. It truly was a smooth process that almost felt to good to be true. The Lord worked it all out from putting us with Tracy."

Kari & Dan

Nerisa was impressive from our first meeting, and remained very insightful and helpful throughout my recent home buying experience.

She listened carefully to what I wanted, and to what I did not want, to help me find homes that were good uses of my time. Instead of Glen Laurel, she helped me find a rare gem in the equestrian community of Portofino. Once I was settled on the home and ready to make a firm offer, Nerisa was timely and accurate in communicating questions and important clarification and negotiation points with the builder and builder's realtor. She was about as excited as I was to find this beautiful new home! Very highly recommended


I would recommend Ty the Realty Guy to anyone in the market of buying or selling a home.

We met Ty at an open house and instantly loved him. We had previously sold and bought two other homes under another realtor and their level of service and professionalism was no where near the level of Ty's. He helped us not only selling our home, but then buying a new one. While selling our home he walked us through the process step by step. He was very open and honest about everything along the way. We never felt pressured to do anything. He told us the pros and cons of everything and then respected and supported our decisions. He paid for a professional to come take photos and offered suggestions on how to improve our home without spending a lot of money. Within days of doing these upgrades, our home was under contract. While buying our new home, he was patient and answered every question we had, no matter how crazy we may have seemed to him. He worked hard for us and was able to get both closings in a time frame that worked best for us. By the end of the process, Ty became another member of our family. Ty is a true professional that will work hard for his clients. He was in constant communication and would answer questions within hours, if not minutes. He made a very stressful process so much smoother. He is honest, hard working, and has a great sense of humor. We love our Ty and would recommend him to anyone!

Kenny Lunger

"When we moved into the area 9 years ago-Tracy was the first agent we used.

WE LOVED HER!! My father moved to Clayton three years later and used Tracy-THEY LOVED HER!!! So when it came time to move this year the first person we called was TRACY!!! She was diligent in everything she did and we had a successful closing within two months of putting the home on the market!! WE LOVE HER!!!"

Martin & Sandi T

Samantha was awesome to deal with.

We moved 1,100 miles across country. She took care of anything we asked her to. She even orchestrated all the inspections, since we were not local. She also met with contractors for items we wanted done after we moved in. All we had to do was show up to close. It was truly a great experience. Brian Glasgow

Brian G.

As a single mom and first time homebuyer, I was rather anxious and also excited about purchasing my first home.

Christine works hard to get to know exactly what you and your family want and need, and is so patient and honest with the shopping/purchasing process! She found me the perfect home and helped me keep my sanity while completing a goal that I wasn't sure I'd achieve... home ownership by 40!

Kathleen Shadley

Amy was very patient with us as we selected our new home.

She listened to all our "must haves" for a new home. She only showed us the homes that contained our "must haves" within our price range. Amy is very attentive to details and was very helpful during the entire process.

Buyer in Benson

TY did an amazing job at selling our home!

! We thought starting out this was going to be an easy sale but once we got into it, it wasnt :( everything that could go wrong did go wrong and Ty stayed calm and held our hand as we walked through the process. He answered all of our questions, helped me to understand stuff (even If I was calling late at night) and the best part was he fought for us the entire time so that we got the best deal for our house!!! Thank you so much Ty - we highly recommend!!!

Melissa Steelmon

Sherry became like a best friend and I will keep in touch with her forever!

She's the best!

Shane & Kayla

Amy Fann is simply the best !

I cannot say enough WONDERFUL things about her. She is honest , extremely attentive , and down to earth. We have used her to sell three houses and with each sell ,she showed the same professional but personal attention to every detail. It didn't matter if it was a small house or a large house, she showed the same amount of attention. I never texted or called her that she didn't respond immediately and always made me feel like I was her only client , even though I know she is always crazy busy. It is so obvious that she loves her job and she loves people. Working with Amy made selling my houses a joy. I can honestly say that after working with her over this last couple of years, I consider her a friend and I would never consider using anyone else .

Laura Johnson

"Tracy was great to work with!

answered all our questions , and we had many. we would highly recommend her to family & friends who are in the market for a home."

Mike R

Nerisa offered my family and I the best experience as first time home buyers!

We were apprehensive about the daunting process of home buying, yet, Nerisa made us feel at ease and excited about the whole process. She really listens and pays attention to detail. Her calm demeanor matched by her professionalism truly made our whole process effortless. She answered all of our questions and would go beyond her duties to find answers for us. Nerisa made our home buying experience simply put...easy! I would highly recommend Nerisa without hesitation! We were truly blessed to have found her. Thank you Nerisa for going above and beyond!

This lady is the real deal. She will exhaust all means to get you job done. FIVE STARS.

Tim C

"Tracy listed my home and we received 2 offers within the first 48 hours on the market!

! Tracy also helped me with the purchase of my new home. She was instrumental in arranging all inspections and provided me with resources to assist in having all necessary repairs completed. She was very prompt in answering emails and text messages and kept me informed with everything going on with both my sale and my purchase. Tracy knows the market in this area very well and truly cares about making sure her clients have the best experience possible when selling and/or purchasing their home. I would not hesitate to use Tracy again!"

Mike & Luanne R

My experience in working with Amy was exceptional.

She made selling my mother's home an easy process. She was professional with a wonderful personality. At first, I was concerned with thoughts of dealing with a realtor, but Amy made it pleasant. I absolutely would not hesitate to use her services in the future.

Judy Watts

Hey, this guy sold me a house.

He'll sell you one too! Or I'm sure he can sell your house, I'll find that out later and report back. Top notch, knows the market, works with locals. I would highly advise contacting him. He did not pay me in memes for this review...

Max Nixon

Amy was very helpful with the purchase of our new home.

She worked with the seller to get things done that needed to be done and was prompt in getting back with us on questions that we had. She is very devoted to her clients and works hard to get what they want.

Georgia Brock

Valerie Dupree did a wonderful job helping us sell and purchase our new home in fall of 2017.

We appreciated her experience, professionalism, and dedication to us through each step of the process. Our house was under contract within 8 hours of listing. Whether you are buying or selling a home, I highly recommend Valerie for your real estate agent.


Amy Huff Fann is an awesome agent!

! She is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. My husband and I were looking investment property, and she very promptly showed us this house. We closed in less than 2 weeks without a hitch!! I highly recommend her for a great buying or selling experience!!

Carol Beasley

Words can not express my admiration for Tyler Huff, aka Ty the Reality Guy.

I am not a big review writer but this has significance if your looking for someone you can trust before, during and after the home buying experience. We had complications during the selling and buying of our new home concerning inspections, loans and all the other fun activities associated with reality. Tyler was called by my wife and I so many times with questions, concerns and emergencies and he always professional and went the extra mile to ensure everything was accomplished and our minds were put at ease. We liked him so much we used him to sell my Mother-in-Law's house which he did in three weeks. Recently I had an issue with my HOA and was having problems reaching someone who could assist me in a very short amount of time. Ty made some calls late that evening and everything was handled professionally the next day. I am very proud now that we have been in our new home over two years, we can still call Ty our friend. He makes things happen and we would never use or recommend anyone else concerning his profession.

Jason Boe

Sherry was amazing through the entire process.

So professional and genuinely just a great person. She was the highlight of this entire process for us and we are very thankful to have her as our agent. We would Highly recommend her to anyone

Nate & Abby

I have worked with Valerie Dupree in both selling and buying capacities.

She has been consistently knowlegable, helpful, responsive and effective. When I have reached out, she has responded very quickly. She has a great grasp of the pricing strategies that will sell your home quickly. Our first home sold in five months with her in a poor market, our second home sold in less than a month in a better market. In addition to being a very professional and effective realtor, she is a wonderful person! I feel so happy and grateful that we have worked together to sell two homes and purchase two homes over the past ten years. Anyone would be very fortunate to work with her!

D Pulczinski

Where do you begin with Valerie Dupree?

? She is by FAR the best realtor our family has ever used, and unless we move far away is the ONLY realtor we will ever use. She is so professional from the first moment you interview her for your listing, all the way to closing. She is easy to reach when there are questions, and she is so knowledgeable about real estate it's great comforting to get sound advice from her. The first house we sold with her sold in less than three weeks. We have also retained her to help us buy two other houses. We are currently retaining her to sell a second house, and know it will go smoothly!! Please do yourself a favor. Stop looking for other realtors in the Clayton/Raleigh area. Hire Valerie Dupree!!

K Gray

Valerie Dupree has helped me sell and buy two homes.

She is attentive and helpful, and she always goes above and beyond to help her clients. She is available to answer questions and provide advice, and she is very knowledgeable about all of the ins and outs of real estate. She has helped many of my family members buy and sell as well, and everyone has had a positive encounter. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!

R Langdon

Amy was absolutely wonderful!

This was actually the second house we've purchased with her. She's quick to answer and never makes you feel like you're bugging her. We were building this go around and she was very proactive for us so that I didn't feel the need to panic. I knew Amy was on it. She's a wonderful person and realtor. If we ever move again Amy will be our first call!

Andria Terwilliger

I couldn't have been more pleased with my home purchase experience.

Sherry Byrd, our agent was exceptional. Excellent communication throughout the the time from home search through to the final closing. Sherry always followed through on everything she told us , never left us guessing or waiting anxiously to hear back from her. If I ever go through the experience of selling or buying a home in the future, if Sherry is available she will be my agent.

Terry & Elizabeth

Christine did a wonderful job!

She came out for free and gave advice on if our potential addition would be worth our money when selling. She also gave other wonderful advice without being asked. Superb job!!


"I worked with Tracy to purchase my first home and really can’t say enough good things about her.

She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends that lasted several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Working with Tracy made the home buying process as painless and straightforward as possible. I highly recommend her."

Chris L

From the very start of the process of selling our home, we were impressed by Nerisa’s knowledge of the area in which we lived.

The pictures she took of the house were very professional. Her advice on the selling price was perfect, as we sold our home to the first prospective buyer. We had so many questions during the process. She was always available when we needed to contact her, and quickly responded to our calls and emails. Nerisa was amazingly patient and kind to us through this whole process. She is very bright, professional and thorough. She is now working with us as we purchase our new home. We highly recommend her services in buying or selling a home!


Valerie Dupree's trustworthiness, patience, and knowledge made the process of buying our home one of the best we've ever had.

She always made herself available whether for a question or a showing, and she helped us feel at ease during a long search process. We felt that she had our best interests throughout the negotiation process, and I can not say enough how great it was working with her!

Mer Wms

Amy was recommended to me by an experienced realtor in another state.

She proved to be a good choice -- tolerant of this buyer's offbeat criteria, patient when properties didn't work out, knowledgeable of communities and neighborhoods, and able to research property issues. She was unusually patient in negotiating with seller's "difficult" agent and helped pull off the sale when I didn't think it would work out.

Buyer in Fayetteville

Sherry was absolutely fantastic and the best realtor we have ever used.

She made the process so easy and spent so much time with us to make sure we bought the home we were looking for. Considering we moved from out of state, this days a lot about Sherry and the team.

Jim & Ellie

Working with Sherry exceeded my expectations as she is truly the hardest working agent I have ever known.

She was ALWAYS available to answer questions no matter what time of day it was. Selling and buying a home is overwhelming but Sherry's expertise made the process seamless. She was truly a blessing to me. I will definitely refer her to others in need of an agent. No one will ever regret using Sherry with their real estate needs.


Amy Huff Fann was my agent during my buying process, not only was she amazing though the overall process of dealing with me and the seller, but she did all this professionally through an ongoing pandemic crisis.

I would be more than happy to recommend Amy to anyone that I know is looking to buy or sell a house on the market today!

Eric Byrd

We have used Valerie Dupree for multiple home sales.

We would and have recommended her to our friends and family.

Rick & Elizabeth

I have known Christine for several years and always loved her enthusiasm and people skills.

When it came time to sell our big house and find a slightly smaller one in a neighborhood we wanted, I immediately thought of Christine as our agent. She flawlessly helped us purchase and close on the "new" house and I have every confidence she will work tirelessly to find a buyer for our home. Coming from a career retired Navy family, we have bought and sold numerous homes over the last 44 years and dealt with many realtors, but Christine has impressed me the most. She even helped me bury St. Joseph by the for sale sign in our yard.

Carol P

Amy has sold two houses for me.

Due to her knowledge of the market, both houses sold quickly and within in range of the asking price.

We have had several years of relying on Amy's knowledge and experience in real estate. She has researched and guided us through sales and purchases. Through out each transaction, we have always felt she had our best interest at heart. We are very comfortable and at ease working with her. We would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a real estate agent.

My husband and I would highly recommend Tracy, with her we found our perfect home. "

Lori & Mike B

I really appreciate all of your hard work and time that you put in helping Denay and I selling our land.

Denay and I didn't know anything about selling land. I can't believe how fast it sold and also the price we received. I told Ronnie last night if we haven't gotten you involved we would have sold that land way to cheap. Thank You for all of Your Help.

Melody Williford

We hired Ty for both our sale and purchase!

Both transactions went very smooth, he was definitely on top of it!

She is very informative, punctual, and genuine. She puts a lot of effort and attention into the wants and needs of the client. Highly recommended."

Jamie H

In moving to the area after living out-of-state for many years, Valerie Dupree was recommended to me as an agent who knew the area well and was someone I could trust to represent me well in the home buying process.

She far exceeded my expectations! A true professional in every way, she was an expert in the housing market in this area and beyond, had excellent communication and negotiation skills, was always very prompt and responsive in communicating with me, and I always felt she had my best interests in mind during the house-hunting/home-buying process. She was a great pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.

Sherry was amazing.

I’ve done business with realtors for years and never have I seen this level of care. From the first introduction on selling my home to seeing if the move in went well on my new home she never stopped. What an absolute pleasure working with Mrs Byrd was. Thank you Sherry for making this so easy for us.


Amy was great to work with.

She is very through and gives you all the information needed to make the best decision for your situation. We had an unexpected situation arise with our buyers and she was very good at negotiating and giving us our choices and ultimately helping us to decide to relist our house. She is also very knowledgeable about the area and a wonderful advocate and liaison in the building process of new home. I highly recommend her : )

Christine has been the greatest realtor.

She has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND for us! You will never find another realtor as responsive and hard working as Christine Stilley. She works through the night and answers every phone call.

We highly recommend Christine Stilley if you want the hardest working realtor to find you your dream home! Thank you Christine!!!

Nicole Kivlan

Amy goes above and beyond to make the experience absolutely stress free.

Before I could even ask the my list of questions, which came on a daily basis, she had already answered them all. She is very informative and prepared for anything.

She was hyper responsive and wrestled our every concern to completion. Helping us to understand the process was key and she is without a question in the corner of the people she represents. She was an absolute blessing for us.

There is not a compromise when working with sherry. She is a true asset to your company

Rob & Heather

I would highly recommend Ty to anyone looking to find their forever home in the Raleigh area.

Ty was very attentive throughout our entire home search, making himself readily available to show a home or work with us on an offer. During our final walk through on our new home, he was present for our walkthrough and serve as an extra set of eyes to make sure everything was just right! He spoke up and voiced his stance on issues that he felt should be fixed within the home, which served us well! He dealt with our lender and really took care of the whole process. It was wonderful to have the realtor cover all the details!! Searching for your new home can already be exhausting, family, work, kids. No one has time to do their realtors job too, with Ty that would never happen. Truly went above and beyond!

If you are looking for a realtor that does her research, is flexible and willing to work with you, is honest and responsible, and truly listens to you in order to assist you in buying or selling your home or land, Amy Huff Fann is the realtor you want on your side.

Amy is extremely professional, but also cares deeply about her clients. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding the buying/selling of property or land, current market values, and she knows the "ins and outs" of how to find what her client is looking for all while keeping them in budget. As a first time home buyer, Amy was easy to talk to, walked my husband and I through the entire buying process, and she also made herself available whenever we had additional questions or concerns. Amy followed our journey from the first day we started looking at houses to the final day where we sat together for closing. It took a while for my husband and I to find our first home. Amy's persistence and sheer determination not to quit found us our dream home. You won't find a realtor better than this lady! 5/5 in all categories. A+++++ service. If you want to buy or sell, give her a call. You will NOT regret it!

Maegan Thornton

Valerie Dupree did an excellent job with a complicated sell and purchase of our new home.

Her patience and knowledge was invaluable and we would recommend her highly to others. She has also assisted two of our children in purchasing their homes.

Den Deb

This was the absolute best experience I have had purchasing a home.

Sherry was on top of everything throughout the process. When I had questions she quickly found the answers for me. It was a pleasure working with The Nicole Orringer Team and I will highly recommend them to anyone I know that is looking for a home!


Since we were coming from out of the area, she was priceless in helping our home choice and purchase happen, always responded when asked anything, has extensive knowledge about her area covered and was always a pleasure to deal with.

Amy told us her valuable opinion when asked and would even stop by homes listed and tell us honestly what shape it was in. she even did a visual walk thru with her phone for us to see, live what shape the house was in. would recommend her to anyone looking in Amy's area.

Kim Collins

"We have known Tracy for 10 years.

She helped us find a home a decade ago and helped us again just a few months ago! She’s a delight to work with and is very personable and likeable. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts for helping us find the absolutely perfect house for our changing family needs."

Sherri C

"Tracy, just wanted to thank you again for all of your help, we absolutely love our new home, and you made everything much much easier than I thought it would be.

Thank you again, and we will definitely be recommending you to our friends!!"

Chris & Sarah R

Christine has been a pleasure to work with.

She has handled every question, gone out of her way to make the purchase painless, and acted as a go between with the Finance company. She has a million contacts. You need something, she knows the right person. She has quickly handled several immediate action items. Her enthusiasm is breathtaking.

Paul Papineau

There are so many positive things that I can say about my experience with Christine!

There was no pressure to work with her, she was flexible with her schedule to better assist me since I lived out of town and she was determined to help me find a home for me and my family. If you're looking for a realtor who is knowledgeable about homes in the Wake/Johnston County area, Christine is the realtor for you.

Shauna Morgan

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Several years ago when we bought & sold our last home, I thought we had a good experience with our realtor then, but after having gone through the process with Christine I was floored by everything she did, not just to help us sell our old home, but to get us into the new home we loved.

She had an answer for all our questions. She had wonderful contacts for anything we needed done, from movers to inspectors etc. She was the perfect person to have on our side. Christine is beyond words! To say we are happy or impressed is an understatement.

Jennifer & Matt

"I am beyond thankful that I worked with Tracy Riba in the sell of my home.

Tracy made the selling of my home effortless on my part. If you are in the market to sell or purchase your home, Tracy would be a wise choice."

Terri K

Amy is a dream to work with!

She made our dream a reality and we are forever grateful!! She was knowledgeable, kept us informed, and understood all our concerns. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell!!!

Dunn Buyer

​"It was a pleasure working with you and we had confidence that you were working hard for us throughout the process.

You kept us updated and always responded quickly to call, texts, and emails. We appreciate how proactive you were and the guidance you provided. "

Frank & Sherri C

Highly recommend!

Valerie and Jennifer Pulczinski were great to work with and always available to answer questions. They helped us with staging and getting the most from our sale.

Chris Caton

I had a lot of questions and a situation that is not typical for most people who are buying a home but Amy knew all of the answers or found someone right away who could help to find the answers!

I would recommend Amy to anyone who is looking to buy (or sell) a home. She is very easy to contact and gets things done quickly.

Lauren Barnes

Samantha" Sam" is a standout at representing her clients.

She is a problem solver that guides her clients past the usual headaches of buying or selling realestate. STAND with SAM and you will get a winning PLAN.


“Tracy is an excellent Realtor and person.

Always available and quick to respond to any concern. She not only knows the market but also the importance of communication. Thank you for selling our home.”

Jamie & Soleam

“We relocated to the Clayton/Garner area from New Jersey.

After meeting with several local realtors, and touring many homes, we ended up very frustrated and disappointed. And then we met Tracy Riba. Tracy far exceeded our expectations. I can’t begin to describe her attention to detail, level of organization and knowledge of the area, subdivisions, builders, market conditions, and the entire home buying process. She not only found us the perfect home, but she was our advocate and represented our needs through the entire process. Purchasing a home long distance is stressful, complicated and scary…but Tracy made the experience exciting and worked very hard to make sure that we were happy every step of the way. She was always available to answer our questions and provide invaluable information. She even helped us get our utilities turned on, our children enrolled in school, and gave us lists of local daycares, doctors, dentists, etc. We were completely blown away by the personalized service that Tracy provided. She focused on our family and our best interests. She was always there, making sure that every detail of our new home was exactly what we wanted. She made sure that we were treated fairly and gave us the information and advice that we needed to make the best decisions. I absolutely recommend Tracy if you are looking for a realtor that is knowledgeable, organized, friendly, and focused solely on your needs and wants.”

Crista & Zach

Sherry Byrd was my buyer's agent and working with Sherry was terrific.

I am a out of state buyer and that can definitely add to the stress of buying a home but Sherry was there for my family in every way. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She was super responsive, answered every question I had, investigated for me, took pictures when I couldn't be there. I mean I just don't know how I would have done it without her. I highly recommend Sherry and would absolutely work with her again if ever I buy again. I can't say enough about how great she was to work with!


My agent, Sherry Byrd, was awesome!

!! It was the first time I bought a home by myself and she assisted me in understanding this process. She also connected me with a great lender. This experience was so positive because Sherry was there to support me. I could not imagine going through all the ins and outs of buying a house without her assistance. Thank you to the Nicole Orringer Team and specially Sherry Byrd for their amazing work.


Sherry is amazing!

She's very professional and attentive to your needs. I highly recommend her.

Russell & Rhonda

Amy was great throughout the entire house selling and buying process.

She was very knowledgeable and answers all my MANY questions! I would recommend Amy to anybody I knew that was trying to buy or sell a house (or both, in our case).

Miranda Clark

Tyler is an amazing realtor!

He helped me sell 2 homes and buy my dream home and also helped my parents buy their home. He really got to know me and understand what my needs were at different stages of my life. He is a good listener, a great advocate, and a hard worker. He is hilarious, but serious when he needs to be. He is great at offering a calm voice of reason during a stressful time. He will help you with whatever you need!! Highly recommended!!

Alyssa Ostrander

Very supportive, flexible, and responsive.

Once I found my house, she helped me to close in under a month and made the entire process on my part as easy as possible.


Christine is awesome to work with.

She is client focused, my fiance and I were first time home buyers she explained the process to us, and was fighting for us every step of the way. She is patient and truly trying to find the right house for you. I wouldn't work with any other realtor other than Christine!!

Daylon Pinkus

"Tracy did a fantastic job working with me.

Her wealth of knowledge and quick responses help move my house quickly and painlessly. I highly recommend her as a 5 star realtor."

Cameron S

"Recipe For A Home Find Tracy Riba first.

She's the Realtor with the most; knowledge, heart, and time. She'll find the place you're looking for. Gives the client what they want and more. If you're buying a house, Then maybe anyone will do. But if it's a home you want, Tracy is for you! She's in the mix from the beginning to the end. I count my blessings that with this Realtor We found a friend. Who watched our back and saved us money. She was an asset and a buddy."

JoJo & Arnold

Sherry is absolutely awesome!

She put in a lot of work and was really patient with us. She was always available when we needed her. She found the right home for us.

Luke & Alisha

Amy was excellent to work with.

Amy went above and beyond what I expected. There were some issues with the home we were buying. Amy was quick to lend a hand in coordinating repairs to insure the completion of the sale. I would without question use her again and recommend her to others.

Dunn Buyer

Sherry Byrd was our agent.

She was AMAZING! She displayed incredible proactivity, reliability, attention to detail and charm. I would recommend Sherry and the Orringer team to anyone.

Nick & Bridget

Sam patiently & meticulously walked us through the seemingly daunting processes of selling our home and building another.

We referred our parents to her as they moved from out of state, and she showed them innumerable properties and walked them through the process of buying a new home after living in the same home for over 27 years. She truly cares about her work, is there for every step her clients take along the way and clearly treats the experience of her sellers/buyers as of it were her very own. She is a stellar realtor and person! You will be happy to have her on your side if you’re buying or selling.

Rose T.

Christine has been very helpful helping us to find a place to live in NC.

Awesome people skills and very talented and here to serve you in your home finding journey.

Sandra Williams

Amy was so helpful in helping us sell our home.

Always available and very knowledgeable. Amy was very polite, honest and sincere in her dealings with us. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to sell their home or find their dream home.

Seller in Benson

Valerie Dupree is a consumate professional who loves the work she does and the clients she works with.

She has exceptional people skills and leaves no stone unturned when helping her clients. She worked with us to find a home in the Raleigh/Clayton area for over a year and finally convinced us that the only way we would be satisfied is by building our own home. Valerie was correct. We now have the home of our dreams and we are thankful that she suggested we consider this option. We moved here in January, 2014 and still keep in touch. My husband and I recommend Valerie Dupree without reservations to anyone looking to buy or sell their home or land. Having lived here all her life, she has a strong sense of what each client needs and can provide the knowledge of the area and resourcefulness to fulfill her responsibilities.


Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I am the type of person to ask lots of questions and want the play by play of the entire process. She was always on top of everything, responded quickly every time, was always friendly, very knowledgeable of the market, and sincerely cared about us! The home I had my eye on, and what we are now living in, was in a very desired neighborhood where homes sold within hours of being listed. She made sure we were ready with our offer and had great advice to get our offer noticed! I could not be more pleased with Amy and would recommend her to anyone!

Andrea McLamb

Positive: Responsiveness Christine is the best realtor I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

She is responsive, proactive and always working in her client’s best interest. Christine’s support after the sell is second to none. She’s there to lend a helping hand and provide all the resources and contacts you need to make for a smooth transition into a new home. Christine rocks! 🐓

Brad K

It makes me want to cry when I think about how helpful Sherry Byrd and the Orringer team we’re in helping my family through the process of finding our new home.

I was devastated when the first house I wanted fell through after inspections, but Sherry knows what she is doing. Thank goodness she had us get the right inspections, and thank goodness she was there to guide us through the process with compassion and professionalism that is hard to come by these days. Every question we had was answered fully and quickly. I love the home Sherry helped us find. It is ten times better than I would have found for myself. This team is the absolute best!

James & Suzanne

What a blessing and what an honor to work with this amazing woman!

My wife, our 5 children, and I were looking to sell our home and buy a new home at the same time. Amy drove long hours and met us at different houses until we found the perfect home. And we eventually did. We closed on our new home in Parkton NC on my birthday May 25th and we closed /sold our previous home in Coats NC yesterday June 1st. Words cannot express how perfect things went working with Amy in a very imperfect situation buying and selling homes at the same time pushing and pulling from both directions. We are now moved into our dream home with plenty of space for our growing family. I am grateful that the process of both buying and selling a house is finally over; Yet, I will forever be impacted and encouraged to put forth the same work ethic, trust, faithfulness, dedication, and hard-work that Amy has demonstrated while helping me and my family. Absolutely “no one else” better to help you and your family. Thank you Amy. You could have just went 1 mile with us as required; But you chose to go the extra miles to help and guide us. We salute you!

The Coopers

My husband and I have sold two homes in Clayton over the past 20 years and Valerie Dupree is excellent.

I hope she can continue to serve others in Clayton and surrounding areas.

Sally S

Valerie Dupree was such a joy to work with.

She was very knowledgeable about the housing market and was there for us every step of the way. She acted as our buyer's agent when we purchased our home and as our seller's agent when we sold our home. We truly feel that the buying and selling process went smoothly due to her expertise and availability.

S Moss

Hands down the best realtor I’ve ever used!

She was patient, informative, and understanding of my situation. She understood my strict timeline and did everything possible to help me meet that time line! Valerie was willing to assist with anything I needed! So very thankful for all her hard work and compassion during this process

B Thomas

I highly recommend Ty.

I stumbled upon his realty page on Facebook somehow (videos are hilarious and fun!) and knew he'd be the realtor for us. He adds humor to the process (which I like!) but at the same time provides the professionalism that you need when you need it. Also, the whole process was very smooth and easy for us from beginning to end (second time home buyers, but first time in the Raleigh market). We will be contacting Ty again for future sellings/purchases in the Raleigh area. We already have potential future buyers that we have referred as well. You won't be sorry with Ty! You will have a blast. :)

Samantha Nixon

Excellent support throughout the sale.

Professional approach in handling the process including the additional complication of remote people. Simplified and made the entire transaction straightforward. No hesitation for recommending Nerisa. We will certainly use her again.


I want to most highly recommend Amy Huff Fann.

She went above and beyond for giving practical, down to earth advice to helping us with inspections, contractors and appointments. She helped us get the home ready to sell, was always responsive to our concerns and helped negotiate the final offer. Working with Amy was a great experience!

Bill Ingram

"Thank you for all of the hard work you did for us in selling our home in Willow Spring.

You made the process easy and relatively painless, even working tirelessly over a holiday weekend to make everything happen for us. The speed and efficiency that you exhibited made the whole process seamless and nearly effortless. You helped make our goals possible and we couldn't have done it without you!

Mike & Tina W

I will highly recommend Amy to any person needing to sell their home in a speedy and knowledgeable manner.

She preforms her business with professional care and experience to get the results her client's need. I was in a situation of working 200 miles from home and needing to quickly relocate my family near to my workplace city. Amy understood my concerns. She also was able to get the best price thru negotiation for my home with the buyer and agent. Selling and buying a home is always stressful, as I have moved about every 10 years. Amy made this move as painless as possible, and we are grateful. She is an Ace! We were Lucky to have her!

Seller in Benson

Christine goes above and beyond to assist her clients in ANY way that she can.

She’s the true definition of a rockstar agent!!!

Matt Romano

Colleen was most helpful in our search for a place in the Clayton area.

She was always prompt in our requests to her and very knowledgeable regarding local real estate dealings.

Brown Beezer

Amy was fantastic!

She was very knowledgeable and incredibly active throughout our process. She gave plenty of needed advice and reassurance through out. We never felt any pressure or stress during our buying experience and we can honestly say, Amy was a big reason for that. We highly recommend her to anyone in need of a confident, caring and honest Realtor.

Willow Spring Buyer

Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I am the type of person to ask lots of questions and want the play by play of the entire process. She was always on top of everything, responded quickly every time, was always friendly, very knowledgeable of the market, and sincerely cared about us! The home I had my eye on, and what we are now living in, was in a very desired neighborhood where homes sold within hours of being listed.

Andrea McLamb

Valerie was of great help to us selling our home.

From the very beginning of the process (what we should update or fix, how to increase curb appeal) and through the sale she was there for us every step of the way. I recommend her work to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Clayton/Garner/Raleigh area!

Liz B

When we were trying to sell our home and buy one at the same time we were really worried how that could even be done.

Then we found Ty on FB... he made both processes smooth as silk. He kept us calm and was available basically night and day. If you want someone to help make a stressful process smooth and has your best interest in mind look no more. Ty is your guy!

Donnie Little

"Honest and always available.

Tracy Riba worked diligently to market and sell my home. After experiencing poor service with another agency Tracy and Carolina Realty showed me how clients should be treated. Once I listed with Tracy I had showings on a weekly basis. Tracy exceeded my expectations by assisting the buyer in getting a loan after the first lender failed to close the sale. She not only knows the market but also knows the importance of communication with her client"


We have used Colleen to purchase two houses and she has exceeded expectations both times.

We have had difficult parameters for the homes and both times, she helped us find and close the perfect house. She is honest with her clients and works hard to get a good deal while setting realistic expectations throughout on pricing, timelines, etc. Highly recommended!

Katie Lewis

Christine was amazing to work with!

My fiancé and I found out we’re expecting our first child and needed to find a home fast! We told her what our budget was and she showed us the best houses for our budget. She was very patient and listens to everything you say about a house. Your likes and dislikes are taken into consideration and she never makes you feel pressured to buy. She kept us very informed and was always available for questions no matter the day or time. She helped us find a perfect house in just a few short months! She will treat you like family and help accomplish your vision for your new home!

Blair Witmer

Amy did a great job helping us buy our new home.

She is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. In the future if we sell our home, we will use Amy as our realtor.

Angie Strickland

"Tracy, it was a pleasure doing business with you and your company.

You couldn't have been more helpful (and patient) in helping us find a place we liked. Your prompt responses were truly appreciated. Thank you again."

Louise & Mike

Ty was a pleasure to work with.

He was responsive, honest, extremely flexible, caring and diligent. Ty took the time to answer my questions during the evening hours as well. He made my home buying experience pleasurable. I recommend Ty with confidence. Thank you Ty!

Pam Carpenzano

Christine has to be one of the hardest working agents in this industry.

She has shown us many homes in a short period of time. Christine did not shy away from long days and searched out more possibilities daily. She shows a determination to find us the perfect home. We definitely would recommend her for buying or selling a home.

Sandy & Joe Carroll

Colleen sold our house in one day!

It gets even better than that. The entire process was handled in the most skillful and professional way. She was with us each step of the way, not only managing the technical aspects of the real estate sale, but also providing kind and compassionate support to us. Currently, She is helping us again with the purchase of our next home. We highly appreciate and recommend Colleen Cassada.

Christina Chandry

Working with Valerie Dupree was a great experience!

She was always pleasant to be around, and she was very patient as I navigated the process of buying a home for the first time. I highly recommend her to anyone in the area looking to purchase a home!


Shirley Brett was our commercial real estate agent and helped us find a retail location for our new gift store in downtown Clayton.

We were very specific about what we were looking for, maybe too specific, and there did not appear to be very much available. Shirley went above and beyond what we would have expected so she could find us the right spot. She called the owners of retail spaces that appeared empty and inquired about their availability, even when they were not being advertised. She asked around, listened to word of mouth, put her ear to the grapevine and found the perfect spot for us, much to our surprise and amazement. We have worked with other real estate agents, and none have put as much energy and effort into helping us as Shirley did. She found the perfect location for our business, and we are not only happy with her services, we are grateful. If you are looking for the absolutely best person in the area to help you with your real estate needs, you can stop looking because you have found her. Scott Reavis & Randy Barbour The Queen’s Court 331 E Main St Clayton, NC 27520

Scott Reavis & Randy Barbour

Sherry was absolutely fabulous to work with.

She was as much a counselor as a professional realtor. She went over and beyond helping me solve the many challenges with this property. She is kind and understanding with the many issues and emotions involved in this process.


What can I say that would really tell anyone how amazing Tyler is?

!? He's has helped us through selling a home, and buying twice, and we will for sure be using his services for any future home transactions! If you are looking for a honest, funny and dependable realtor, give Tyler a call today! He's become someone we actually enjoy hanging around, even without having a contract or listing between us!
