Thank you Maura at Sawyer Realty for giving us a better experience than we could have imagined with buying and selling a home! We met Maura at an open house that she was hosting. We were immediately impressed her character and her disposition. At that time, we had not hired an agent, and we knew immediately that she was the one we wanted to work with. Maura worked as both our buying and listing agent. She demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the market and provided the perfect strategy for pricing and listing our home and for making an offer on a new home. The quality of service and her attention to detail were evident from our first meeting and continued to be displayed through every interaction from listing to closing. She communicated efficiently and organized every aspect of both the buying and selling transaction flawlessly. We could not have been more pleased with the ease of the whole process. Maura helped us navigate a multiple offer situation on our listing, and she helped us close the deal on our dream home. We are so thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Maura. She is the person you can trust to always look out for you and your best interest throughout the home buying and selling process. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Triangle area, Maura will meet and exceed your expectations!

Sawyer Realty has helped my daughter find her first home. The team was professional, informative and helped answer all her questions. Maura especially took so much time with her that I am sure this is a great move for my daughter. I am so excited for her and as an anxious mom, so appreciative of what Maura did to help her make her choice and guide her thru her first time home buying experience. Thanks Sawyer Realty!!

Maura was wonderful to work with! She found every avenue to sell our home and went out of her way to do so even when the first buyers fell through. She walked through with us every step of the way from the sale of our house to purchase of our new one. Thanks to her it made a very stressful situation a pleasant and rewarding event. Wouldn’t be in our dream home without her.

We had the best experience working with Sawyer Realty! They helped us sell our house in Willow Spring after only being on the market for 1 day. Maura was attentive to all our needs and was available to answer all our questions anytime of day or night! We felt that she gave us realistic advice and recommendations on how to update the house and knew how to spotlight the unique features the house had to offer. She highlighted the best points of our lovely home. Where other companies insisted we would need to spend thousands of dollars over our budget to get the house ready to sell, Maura came in with great alternatives and solutions, that not only kept us below our budget, but also got us our FULL asking price. She handled every detail of the sale, which provided us with peace of mind during what could have been a very stressful experience. When I needed help getting the house ready for market, she met me at the door with a bucket and mop, paint, and her own staging pieces! We feel she went above and beyond as our realtor and would recommend Sawyer Realty to anyone who wants a hard-working realtor on their side! Thanks again Sawyer Realty!

Maura was absolutely phenomenal. My husband and I were newlyweds looking to buy our first home. We didn't know much about the process other than what we saw on HGTV. Maura was extremely knowledgeable, so accommodating, very attentive, and was able to see our vision for the house we wanted. If there was a home that came on the market that we wanted to see, she would take us immediately because houses in this area sell so quick, even if that meant late in the evening. We couldn't have chosen a better realtor. Highly recommend Maura!

The Sawyer Difference

One of our biggest differentiators is the amount of time we spend with clients. We seek to understand our client’s goals and priorities, so we can deliver on and exceed their expectations. While many agents focus on quantity, we focus on quality. For clients buying, we work hard to get them the best home at the best price, and for clients selling, we also work hard not just to get any offer, but to get offers that meet their financial goals.

Our attention to detail and service is pretty unique. We are known to cut lawns, repair fences, paint furniture, let out pets for showings, and even babysit for closings when needed.

Our approach is to consult, guide, and educate clients buying their home, so they can feel confident in this important decision. Many of our buyers thought they would never be able to buy a home due to financial situations, but we have connected them to lenders and programs that made their dream a reality. Throughout the buying process, Sawyer Realty is always thinking about client’s investment, will the client be able to resell if they choose to, will the home be costly to maintain, and we provide as much guidance as possible for the buyers to make an educated decision.

While other agents will guarantee you an offer or promote a quick close, our goal is not just any offer and quick close (although we accomplish that quite often). Instead, we focus on achieving the best possible results by working hard to research the market and understand your goals and price your home accordingly. Your goal might be a certain number or a quick sell, and there are different strategies to each. Most importantly, we offer competitive rates that allow our sellers to keep more of their profit.

Sawyer Realty works primarily in the Triangle MLS area, including Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Holly Springs, Apex, Fuquay Varina, Garner, Angier, Willow Springs, Morrisville, Clayton, Knightdale, Sanford, Lillington, and Chapel Hill. We can also assist our clients as they search for investment properties and vacation properties in North Carolina. When your search is beyond our MLS reach and beyond North Carolina, we can help you identify an exceptional partner in your search area.

We do offer to help landlords list their rental properties and find the right tenant for their property.

Open Door is a great option for some sellers and may not be for others. It depends on your goals and your particular home. Sawyer Realty can guide you through that process and help you determine if selling to Open Door would be the best strategy to achieve your desired outcome.
