Shannon is amazing!!! I could not imagine having a better realtor. She came highly recommended by a friend who also used her for their home purchase and now I know why - her service and attention to detail. I was afraid buying a home would be stressful but with her not so much.

I always found her to be extremely responsive - no matter if communication was email, text, or phone. She made sure I never missed any important deadlines, paperwork, or appointments.

Her knowledge and ability to explain mortgages, HOAs, builder terminology was invaluable to me as a first time home buyer. Without any hesitation I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

Shannon did a phenomenal job both as our buying and selling agent! She worked night and day to ensure we had all of our ducks in a row. She honestly made us feel like we were her only client as she was completely available to us when we needed her. She even helped us through having our initial buyers back out by reassuring that our house would sell within the timeline we needed. When we are ready to sell again, she will be our first call!

Beth Smoot is a true real estate professional. She knows the market intimately, and she has the business savvy to guide you through the buying process. We always feel like we learn something important after every interaction with Beth. I feel so much more confident now about analyzing the market, looking for the right properties, understanding how various neighborhoods are changing, what a fair market price is, and how to get a purchase done in a short amount of time. My wife and I have never purchased investment property before, but Beth walked us through the process patiently but carefully, and we were able to find a great option very quickly. Beth's extensive experience translates to a large amount of time saved for the buyer. She does all the homework before we meet, so we can focus on looking at the right properties and asking the right questions. We give our strongest recommendation without reservation to use Beth Smoot as your realtor. Calling Beth was the best decision we made, and we found the perfect property that fit our needs at a competitive price. Call Beth now! View More Info at

Jeff Cisco recommends Shannon Davenport

Quality Assurance

It’s been a long time since I’ve had to work with a real estate professional. That said, my experience with Shannon has been eye opening. She really made the house buying process almost seem simple. Given my first venture with buying a home, I know this is certainly not the case, so this really speaks volumes about her service.

You realize right away your dealing with a veteran of the trade. Her industry knowledge is exceptional and she’s very good at relaying pertinent information in a way that doesn’t require a college course in real estate to understand. Communication was top notch. I was apprised of everything going on at each step of the process. I never had to ask. My 1st experience buying a home was not like this. Any and all things that came up Shannon was all over it. I can’t express how helpful and important it was to know that I didn’t need to chase her down for anything. She has a real “go getter” work ethic. Often times she was able to get sellers to cough-up critical details they were not obligated to divulge. She’s well networked with quality resources that really came in handy when I was finally locked into a purchase agreement.

Patient, proactive, well informed, diligent. The value Shannon brings to the table is undeniable. I’m still in awe at how well she managed the entire process. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. View More Info at

Christy Young recommends Karmia Lewis

If you are looking for someone to represent you during the home buying process, I recommend Karmia Lewis. My husband and I are very particular and went into this process with a very specific idea of what we were looking for. Karmia, listened to every detail we laid out and secured multiple showings based on our requests and specifications within 2 days of meeting with her. Karmia was very much our partner and advocate in this process. She was very attentive, responding timely to every call, email and text. I could always trust she would provide an honest opinion, sound advice and thorough answers in each response. She is genuinely a kind person and was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Karmia, for everything!

Shout out to Trish Vermillion as well. Karmia and Trish were like a well-oiled machine, making sure every transaction was explained and completed correctly. Between the two of them, we never had to worry about scheduling related appointments or obtaining needed information. Trish was also so kind to my daughter on the day of our closing allowing her to hang out with her while we did the “adult stuff”. It’s little things like that, that sets this team apart.

Senior Software Engineer

We were probably not a typical set of home buyers. We had very specific requirements for our forever home, very specific questions and concerns, and knew pretty much exactly what we were looking for. Given the nature of my work, details are very important and I can say, unequivocally, Karmia addressed each and every question, concern, and request in pure professional and timely fashion.

From walking us through the overall process, helping us settle on an offer and due-diligence strategy, through recommendations for vendors to handle repairs, to the final details at closing, I honestly don't believe you'll find a better representative to purchase your next home. She was thoroughly attentive and engaging and definitely had our interests at heart. I've interacted with hundreds of Realtors and various brokerages over the past two decades. Karmia is a rare breed among real estate professionals. Should we ever decide to make another move, we will definitely be choosing Karmia again. View More Info at

Shannon is a great realtor. I couldn't have been more impressed and pleased. I sent her and a few other realtors an email back in October/November of 2018 looking for market information and finding homes that were on the market with features that my wife and I were interested in. We lived in Michigan at the time and didn't know when we were going to move. She was the only one that gave me any kind of service. I knew right then that Shannon was going to be my realtor. Ready to work. :) We came down in January/February and didn't go to any showings until April. She remained in contact and checked in with us pretty often. During the buying process, she was on top of everything. Went above and beyond my expectations. Highly recommended. View More Info at

Outstanding doesn't begin to describe the job Shannon did for my wife and me when we were moving from Ohio to North Carolina this past May. We have moved many times and have dealt with many real estate agents in the past, but none come close to Shannon and the consideration she showed for us. Not only did she show us the home we purchased, but also contacted professionals for inspections at our request. Because we were still in Ohio, Shannon was present for each of those inspections! Conscientious, professional, considerate, smart, thoughtful and kind only scratch the surface of her work ethics. She's the best and you can't go wrong working with her. Thanks Shannon!

They are successful, caring, and patient and listened to every single, tiny detail I expressed with regard to my needs and what I was looking for. I know that Beth took care of many things behind the scenes to make the process smooth for me. And I absolutely knew that I could trust their advice and guidance through this experience. I felt more than comfortable expressing my thoughts along the way, and they took them all to heart. Beth, Marcella, Trish, and Bryan showed such kindness toward me during this process and did such special things to ensure I was well taken care of. Absolutely no detail was missed. I came to call them the Energizer Bunnies, and their expertise is second to none. They knew about everything from the local market to inspections, repairs, and insurance. You name it, they had the answer. I could never have negotiated this purchase on my own, but they knew exactly what to do. They definitely know real estate in and out. If you are looking for a real estate team, look no further. I 100% recommend Beth and her colleagues. They are the best hands down. Beth, Marcella, Trish, and Bryan, I will always be grateful to you.

Daughter, Wife, Mom, Friend, Neighbor, Circus Coordinator

I have personally purchased or co-purchased six homes prior to meeting Shannon. Two homes were in another state and each of my homes were purchased using different agents.

From the very first time my husband and I met Shannon, it was clear, she was ON THE BALL! We were not ready to buy, but wanted to get an idea what was available in our price range and what was different since our last purchase over 12 years ago! She listened carefully and sent us a very useful first list of properties to review, say Yes, No, Maybe to.

Based on previous experience, I fully expected Shannon to become scarce knowing that we weren't looking to buy RIGHT NOW and really weren't sure what exactly we wanted. She'd put in her reasonable service and she could've let us float into oblivion since we weren't HOT on the trail of an imminent purchase. Here's where Shannon set herself apart from every single other realtor/buyer's agent I've ever worked with - she kept in CONSTANT CONTACT with us.

Her vast experience, excellent communication skills, tireless determination, confidence and masterful ability to manage some of my raw emotions throughout this blessed event, made her the most outstanding agent I've ever had the honor of working with, EVER!

There's no-one I'd rather have to fight for/with me when it comes to something as significant in life as a 30 year commitment - well, besides my husband obviously - Shannon Davenport, even though her football team beat our football team in the 2019 Superbowl! BARELY!

We felt comfortable relying on her input and expertise. She even recommended several people to help us with renovations and repairs, and ensured those went smoothly for us. She has a great team, too - Marcella, Trish, and Bryan all helped us at different points along the way and were great to work with.

Karmia, Karmia, Karmia! How can I put into words how blessed I am to have gained not only a realtor but a lifetime friend...

Professionally, Karmia was exceptional with her attention to detail, timely feedback and communications, persistent, and thorough.

Purchasing your first home is a HUGE undertaking that comes with many planned and unplanned events along the journey. However, Karmia's preparedness and swift advisory and guidance allowed my first home buying process to be smooth, timely, and stress-free.

I recommend Karmia to anyone that is looking for a well rounded, caring, professional, and knowledgeable realtor. View More Info at

Leslie Juan Rivera recommends Marcella Simmons

Self Employed Filmmaker

I cannot recommend Marcella enough. She took us out looking for houses and if she saw something just a little bit off she would kindly suggest we pass on the property. With tons of experience under her belt she could spot a crack on a ceiling that either indicated a quick fix or a house that was splitting in half (yes, we saw a house that was slowly splitting in half and Marcella was able to determine that's what was happening and why and to stay away from the headache it would eventually become).

But what really, really impressed me about Marcella and made me a client, and a super fan, for life is that we ran into a really difficult situation with the seller of our home and not only did Marcella advocate for us with all her might for the month it took after closing for the seller to do right by us, but she was very supportive and stayed on top of any information she knew she could provide to give me a little piece of mind. It was a very stressful situation and I don't know how I would have handled it if it weren't for Marcella's support. And she delivered for us.

Five thousand thumbs up for Marcella. I thank you deeply from the bottom of my heart, Marcella. View More Info at

Assistant Professor

Working with Beth (and Trish) to sell our condo was beyond excellent - from start to finish. Beth was really informed about the market and kept a close eye on recent comparable sales, so she was able to let us know that we should increase the listing price a few days before we put it on the market. Even after that, we sold our condo above the listing price, with multiple offers in the first 48 hours. Beyond that, she made sure to help us with every step along the way. She came over and advised us what to fix up around the house before listing, what furniture and decor to keep and remove for showings, and scheduled cleaners to come spiff the place up. The listing photos looked beautiful and the description was really appealing. The whole process ran smoothly and efficiently - great communication about paper work, process, and deadlines. Beyond being very organized, Beth and Trish were both super nice and that made process fun! View More Info at

I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend the services of Beth Smoot andNextHome Triangle Properties. As a recent widow, everything seemed more difficult than usual making decisions without my husband by my side. Instead, I had Beth by my side and her assistant, Marcella Simmons. Downsizing, moving out of state and encountering problem after problem before the closing made the process very troublesome but Beth and Marcella were always there to talk me through things and move the process forward. It was not easy. At best, it was very challenging but I never doubted that I made the right decision choosing Beth as my broker. She is very professional, a take-charge individual and does whatever is necessary (even mopping up water in a flooded basement) to get the job done. It is a great relief to have all of this behind me but I would definitely choose Beth to be my broker again. I not only made an excellent choice, I also made a friend! View More Info at

We cannot say enough GREAT things about Marcella and her expertise and guidance as we sold the home we lived in for 22 years.

We encountered several small challenges along the way with our property (unbeknownst to us) which Marcella was always 2 steps ahead of us on in terms of understanding the situation, bringing in solid advice/experts to help us resolve all while reassuring us as buyers. All of her hard work resulted in a quick sale with us as very very happy clients who we we use again in a heartbeat. She was available to us at all times, never waivered in the end goal and was so reassuring throughout the entire process.

This was our first time buying a house. I don't have much experience dealing with real estate agents except painting houses for them. But I can't say how easy Paul made the entire process. Not to mention he is real personal, which is something my wife and I were looking for. I never felt like I was just a client. We laughed, joked, just basically talked as friends would. Paul also knew what was going on during the whole process. Not just from a real estate perspective, but other areas as well. Especially during our home inspection. Having majored in Construction Management, he knows what to look for, what is bad, and what is good. Whenever I had a question, or a concern, Paul always got back to me quickly. Even though he is married with two kids, he always found time for me, and my wife. We went through an excruciating process finding a house. Nothing just seemed to work out. Not because of Paul, but because of many issues found during the inspections. Yet, he was with us every step of the way. I know that we weren't his only clients, but he coukd have fooled me. I would highly recommend Paul Duncan. View More Info at

Beth Smoot was simply fantastic. As we shopped for homes, she took the time to listen and understand what we were looking for. She gave very helpful feedback on what the housing market inventory had and how that reconciled with our needs. She was able to identify homes of interest as soon as they were listed and quickly got us in to see them. When we finally made an offer, the home had been on the market just a couple of days and we were finalizing negotiations with the seller within hours. Through our very complicated process of getting all the pieces together for a significant home renovationproject, Beth proved invaluable in keeping everyone involved on the timeline and supplied us with helpful introductions to well respected architects, contractors, and others vital to the process.

Without a doubt, Beth has great insight on the real estate market and makes you feel at ease even during stressful times. She's very thorough, timely, and gets to all of her resources to help get the job done. There were a couple of occasions where she engaged her teammate, Marcello, to fill in for her. Marcello understood the situation and knew what needed to be done without a hitch. I attribute that to communications and their willingness to go the extra mile for you. Not only do you get Beth, but you get Marcello, too. They're the dynamic duo!

We've been working with Paul for well over a year now. We started with an existing house hunt, but ended up building.

Inside the houses, he gave great insight and pointed out values, and also potential issues. Once we decided to build, Paul was really able to help guide us through the entire process. Since he works on homes himself, he has some really unique ideas but also up-to-date with the construction process, and has seen a lot to base it on. He continually followed up with our builder, and was out at the lot frequently checking on the status. Closing was seamless, and he even took some great photos at the new place once we got the keys.

Paul was recommended to us by a mutual friend, and we are so incredibly grateful. Purchasing a home can be a stressful experience, but Paul was absolutely fantastic and helped create a virtually seamless transition for us. We were initially apprehensive about buying and selling at the same time, but Paul explained the benefits of doing it that way and made us feel comfortable about the entire process. When we asked questions (and we had a lot!) or asked for his advice or suggestions, I never had any question that he had our best interest in mind. He was always quick to respond to us, our buyer’s agent, and our seller’s agent, and his responses were always thorough. He went over and beyond what we would’ve expected and created an enjoyable experience. We may want to make updates to our new home, so we also found his general contractor experience helpful, as he could advise on the probable cost estimates and even gave us some recommendations on contractors in the area. In the end, we kept having to remind ourselves that Paul was our real estate agent and not a longtime friend, and that’s a great thing.

Marcella and her team were fantastic resources as we sold our home of 10 years and purchased a new home for our family. They shepherded us through each process and answered any questions we had with care and patience. They assisted in expertly staging our house and appropriately pricing it for the current market.

Moving with two young children is challenging, but we never felt rushed or pressured, and the team made necessary allowances to accommodate our kids' schedules.

Compared to other experiences we have had buying and selling homes, we were simply blown away. I would recommend Marcella and NextHome without hesitation. We felt well represented on both transactions and it was a real relief to feel we had such strong talent in our corner. View More Info at

Caitlin Zimorowicz recommends Paul Duncan

As a first time home buyer, I would recommend Paul hands down! The house we ended up purchasing had several offers before we even had a chance to look at it in person. Paul was able to set up an appointment that night, and provided us insight on proceeding with our offer. Needless to say, our offer was accepted and we moved in last week! Paul was always there to answer our many questions and provide a wealth of knowledge on the Raleigh housing market. He was always accessible via phone or email for anything we needed during the entire process. It was a big plus that Paul was able to recommend a mortgage lender to us as well. I believe this entire home buying process was smooth sailing for us because we had an amazing realtor! Thank you Paul! View More Info at

I could not write enough great things about Paul in this recommendation. Any property that I had questions on or wished to view, Paul arranged it that same week. His guidance and knowledge of the area proved invaluable to me. Working through Paul was simple and easy, never once did I have a poor experience with a seller or seller's agent. I cannot thank Paul enough for the job he has done.

Paul was a great help to us during the entire home buying process. As first time home buyers, we had many basic questions on the process, timing, and steps needed to purchase our first home. Paul was responsive and patient with all our questions and helped us navigate all the issues that we came across. His calm perspective was also a great asset during the back and forth negotiations with the sellers. His insight as a general contractor was also incredibly helpful in our decision making. We had such a great experience with Paul and recommend him to anyone looking for a home. View More Info at

Let me start off by saying, Paul was fantastic!

My husband and I relocated from Asheville and had a short window of time to find our next dream home. Paul took time to talk to us on the phone to understand our preferences and then set aside two weekends to show us houses. After helping us narrow down our search to 10 houses and thorough planning for us to see all 10 houses in one day, we found two houses that we loved. Without question, Paul scheduled a second showing that next day and made himself available. Paul was not only patient as we looked at each home, but helped us see things we may not have otherwise seen and helped us make an offer (and counter offer) that we were both comfortable with.

Paul also worked closely with us, the bank, the attorney and the seller's agent to make sure we closed on time and as planned. He went above and beyond to ensure this process was as easy for us as possible, such as meeting me in downtown Raleigh (where I work) to pick up the escrow, talking to us on a Friday evening, etc.

Paul was not only a very patient, professional realtor with us, but he was outstanding in handling the seller's requests.

It can be hard to find a realtor with excellent professionalism, patience and passion to make sure you find THE perfect home. But with Paul, you have all three and more. View More Info at

Let me start by saying, Paul was absolutely fantastic! My husband and I moved to the triangle from Asheville and we had a short window of time to find our next dream home. Paul dedicated two full weekends to show us houses. He helped us narrow our search to 10 homes and scheduled our first Saturday so we could easily see all of them, and we added more that day. Paul was extremely helpful in showing us houses and helped point out features we would not have otherwise seen. In one Saturday we found two houses we loved but what was awesome was that met us the next day so we could see both houses again. In one weekend, we were under contract View More Info at

She was always pro-actively anticipating our needs and handling all the little details that needed attention.

I recommend Beth to anyone looking to sell a house. She is extremely knowledgeable,
responsive and she takes care of everything.

I finally decided to sell my house while living in Califfornia when my tenants moved out. I was paying essentially two mortgages. Beth worked to prepare the house and help with the transition as my tenants left. She then priced my house to be under contract after only two days on the market. Buyers were bidding on my house!

Beth knew exactly how to create interest, and sell my house quickly for a great return! She took care of everything without my needing to even come to NC. She's delightful and helpful and persistent in helping me to read all the paperwork and handle the many administrative items when selling a house. She understood my needs and worked to ensure my interests were represented with the buyer through the entire process. The sale was seamless and so easy. I definitely recommend Beth to anyone who wants an experienced and knowledgable realtor on their side. She's fantastic! Thanks, Beth! View More Info at

Nadine Carozzi recommends Beth Smoot

Beth Smoot has all the qualities that are important in an effective real estate agent, she listens to your needs, and uses her expertise to move the purchase or sale forward while allowing you to remain in control behind the scene. She understands that while the real estate sales process is commonplace to her- it is a once in a lifetime event for you that can create anxiety. Beth was always there for us- no issue or question was too minor, sometimes she just was just there for us to talk to- she made us feel as if we were her only clients when in fact she was juggling many clients.
Finding a new home is a huge step but is in hindsight the easy part or at least the most fun part. Buying is also more fun than selling but coordination of the two are often required and each have their particular issues all of which were made so much easier by working with Beth. She managed all the negotiations with the sellers and buyers in a professional style that is a perfect blend of her ability to respect and understand people and her no nonsense and highly skilled approach to making a deal. Being an attorney provides her with quite an edge for understanding and explaining the legalities of various topics. She was available for every little thing as it was needed, including meeting with sellers at their homes, spending hours at the new house while it was being inspected, and overseeing repairs just to name a few. As the deal progresses the details get more tedious- she read and commented on the 70-page home inspection report, she gave us names for movers, handymen, well inspectors, insurance agents for the vacant house, and yes even squirrel removers. It is clear that Beth loves helping people find new homes and doing all the work that we would rather not do to make it happen.

Marcella is the absolute best!! We happened to meet her at an open house that she was holding. We didn't end up buying that house, but we used Marcella as our agent for the house we ended up getting. She showed us a number of houses over a few months, until we found the perfect match. Marcella was great throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend and will definitely work with Marcella again for any real estate needs in the future. View More Info at

Director of BD and Contractss

Marcella helped us sell our home in Raleigh and did a superb job getting the home staged, repaired, spruced up, etc. She had a deep list of contractors for us to work with and even helped set up appointments! She also went above and beyond in making sure our home was marketed appropriately on various websites, social media, etc.

When it came to buying our new home, she listened to our needs and did not waste time taking us to homes that were out of our price range or did not fit our lifestyle.

Marcella was transparent and thorough in all her interactions with us and made sure we were always had the latest information. Marcella is a great negotiator and definitely has her client’s best intentions in mind.

I have used realtors in the past and none of them did the quality of work that Marcella provided. I cannot recommend her enough! View More Info at
