"Cara goes over and beyond and makes you feel as if you are her only clients. Cara helped us find a rental while we were out of state and then helped us purchase our first home in NC. She maintained excellent communication and responsiveness while helping us secure a home in this chaotic, unusual market. She is super knowledgeable and honest, and you won't find a more personable individual. I trusted her wholeheartedly. I will be using her again in the future and referring anyone in need of a realtor to her. I am well aware that not all realtors operate the way Cara does and I consider myself fortunate for having worked with her. Thank you Cara!"

"I cannot say enough kind things about Cara Pierce! She helped put us in our dream home...and we are first time home buyers! We knew we could trust her from our very first meeting when she calmly and thoroughly walked us through the entire home-buying process. Unlike some other realtors that we had interacted with, she was never pushy or gimmicky. We knew that she had our best interests at heart. She looks beyond the obvious in a house and helps you see the things you otherwise would never notice. She was extremely good at communicating throughout the entire process, we never felt like we couldn't get in touch with her or ask her a stupid question. She would stay up late and get up early for our needs. Cara is a pleasure to work with, and (while I hope we stay in our new home forever) if we ever do want to sell and buy a new house, she will be our only call!" - Renee S.
