“Very early, I realized that the clients I was helping needed to be educated regarding both the processes of buying and selling real estate and the very special facts needed to make good decisions when owning property in the coastal area. I enjoy sharing information and teaching, as it were, and eventually sharing the joy of the closed deal!“

“Anne Arnold made my acquaintance through a mutual friend nearly 25 yrs ago while I was a frequent vacationer at Holden Beach. Her zest for life and profession made their impression on me from the very beginning. So when I retired in 2014, she was my GO TO person to find a home on the coast when my Lake Norman home sold virtually overnight. 10+ years later, she sold my property in one day. Methodology, logic, getting to know me and my interests in a residence were spot on.”
– Doug Cottrell

“We worked with Anne many years ago and she was excellent; that is why we sought her out when we decided to purchase a home. She is dedicated beyond measure, always available to answer any question, and always kind and pleasant. We absolutely love her!”
– Sabrina and Herb Smith

“Anne Arnold was the perfect agent to sell my house. Using her experience and knowledge we quickly determined a fully justified asking price and marketing strategy. With the pictures and description she put out for viewing (which were based on her knowledge of the target audience) we sold immediately at full asking price and had only a negligible reduction following due diligence. Most important to me, Anne stayed fully engaged during the 6 weeks between initial contract and closing and was always available to answer questions and give advice. I would recommend Anne Arnold to anyone wanting to sell their house.”

“We have had quite a few real estate sales and purchases and have always handled all the transactions ourselves. Anne has been a friend of ours for many years and we decided to ask her professional help in selling our house and buying another home using the 1031 exchange. Anne was very helpful in guiding us thru the process. She worked very hard for us and was professional and personable.”

“You could not find a more amazing Realtor. Anne Arnold made our selling of our Home an amazing experience. She knew exactly the price for our home in accordance to the market. We accepted a great bid within 48 hours. The whole process was smooth and efficient. If you are selling or buying a home Anne is the best one to choice.”
– Joe and Debbie W.

“This was our second home that we listed with Anne. It is difficult to adequately describe her performance in both sales. From pricing to decorating to negotiating a final price she has been invaluable. In both cases the buyer fell in love with her and we have sustained our live and appreciation. Her sincerity and honesty with both seller and buyer made the process easy and relaxed. She always gets the job done quickly and in a way that both sides come out winners. Anne will always be our go-to listing and selling agent.”
