Patty goes above and beyond to get things done for her clients.

I just bought my first home with her, and the process felt just too easy! She's such a trustworthy, personable agent to work with, and I would recommend her ten times over.

Chloe Miller (Marketing Manager at publishing house)

Patty was great!

!!! She listened to what we were looking for and delivered!!! We really enjoyed working with Patty as she was very personable and attentive to our needs! We would highly recommend her!!! Thanks Patty!!

Stephan Miles

Patty has been working with my wife and I the past six years to find a home in the Raleigh are.

We can't say enough great things about Patty's patience, knowledge and understanding of what we wanted. She also provided advice on builders and places for us to shop for things for the new house. I don't think anyone could find a more qualified broker for the area.

Richard Romano

Trevor Smith was recommended by a friend to help me find a home in the Raleigh area, as I transitioned into retirement from Northern VA.

When we met, Trevor asked me questions to help him strategize the type of home and area that would fit my active lifestyle and showed me numerous beautiful homes to consider. On my second visit to Raleigh, I was ready to buy a home and narrowed it down to two he had showed me. Trevor added one more home we hadn't seen before that he thought I just might like and the minute we drove through the neighborhood and stepped inside the house, I knew it would be my new home. Trevor has a listening ear, insightful wisdom and calm demeanor to help guide me through the up's and down's of home buying. I wake up every day in my new home with a grateful heart. Thank you, Trevor, for finding my perfect home.

Bonnie Marsh (Retired)

Trevor was an outstanding realtor.

He was with me from the beginning of my search process, through a For Sale By Owner (which fell through due to the owner changing his mind), through the search process again, and finally the closing on my new home, which I love! Trevor was very professional and was always willing to answer texts with questions that I had and he kept me informed of everything I needed to know and shielded from things I didn't need to know nor cared about (as lawyers emailed legalese during the closing process).

Reggie Jackson (Sr. Manager, Pfizer Supply Chain Security)

Trevor knows his business.

He was very patient with me as I navigated the process of readying my home for market right through to showing and closing. An incredibly gifted realtor and all around amazing guy!

Robert Nash

By far the best real estate company to work with.

I used them twice so far and will use them again.


Trevor assisted me in the purchase of vacant land.

Buying real estate is a big decision. It is both exciting and to be honest, terrifying. I wanted to have someone I knew I could depend on for support in making the right decisions and ensuring the process was seamless. Trevor was that person. His knowledge and skill were essential in making sure that things were handled with great care and detail. In the real estate world it is many times a challenge to find someone who makes you feel like your search/offer/ and contract is their number one priority. Trevor was excellent at relaying updates and communicating the next steps throughout the entire process. He was realistic about concerns I had and provided sound advice while also always being supportive in the decisions that I made. Thank you Trevor for help!

Joshua Ham (Training Specialist/ Real Estate Broker)

Trevor is awesome - very helpful, professional and responsive from the very beginning of the process to the final day!

Jessica Lee

Patty was very helpful in the sale of my home.

She did a wonderful job of analyzing the residential market so I could get the best price for my property. Glad to have her assistance and would definitely recommend her to others.

Rusty Mizelle

Patty was a fantastic partner in helping me sell my parents home.

She was everything you could dream of in a real estate broker, and so much more. Patty was insightful and detail oriented in all areas including: when to list the house, listing price (balancing not only our desire to get as much for it as possible, but also selling quickly), how to stage the house, how to balance open houses and listing appointments, and most importantly in the negotiating, closing the deal, and buttoning up all the millions of things that need to be done. Patty was empathetic, dedicated, efficient and thorough in her communication, extremely organized and trustworthy, and honestly a delight to work with. We felt extremely well taken care of during every step of the process. I can't imagine that selling my parents home from out-of-town could have gone half as smoothly with anyone other than Patty. A pure delight, whom I whole-heartedly recommend.

Tina Kanter Moore (Sommelier & Private Chef)

Patty was amazing to work with.

She had our house on the market within a few days of us initially contacting her. She was willing to work with our quick timeline and did not cut any corners to get it done. She had professional photos taken and gave us great advice on pricing. Our house had multiple showings per day and sold in just 8 days! I would guess there isn’t another realtor in business that could match her communication skills and response time. She was quick to answer questions and helped us find resources for repairs.

Julie Hoskins

Trevor is outstanding to work with both on the seller and the buyer side.

He not only helped us find our DREAM home but he also help us navigate through a stressful sale of our old home. He is always present in every conversation and always has your best interest in hand. This is the 2nd home we have sold and purchased with Trevor in the last 6 years and each experience exceeded our expectations. I will continue to refer Trevor and his team to any of my friend and colleagues that are looking in the Greater Raleigh Area!

Tyler Clapp (Engagement Manager)

Leslie was awesome in all facets of the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.

She has a good handle on the market trends and and was a great resource in helping us find a great neighborhood for our family to relocate for our local move. She was able to refer us to reputable companies and contractors when needed and just made the process so easy. I would highly recommend her!

Stacey Moritz

Trevor and Christine helped us to find our first and second home in Clayton.

They are very professional and knowledgeable.I highly recommend them and would love to work with them again in the future.

Princess Thapa

Trevor was a great resource in helping us to buy our home, especially since we are from out of the area.

He's very familiar with the local communities, the builders and a wide network of resources that we tapped into. He was a credible sounding board when we needed advice, and a strong advocate when we needed support. Working with Trevor was a pleasure. Pierre & Susan LaPerriere

Pierre LaPerriere

Buying a house is probably one of the most important and stressful experiences people encounter during their lives.

It is very important to engage the right person who provides personalized service to guide you through this purchase. We are so glad that Trevor recommended Christine to us. She is wonderful! She went over above and beyond and have been very responsive since day 1! We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. Thank you so much Chris!

Princess & Andrew Thapa

Christine is a great agent.

She was easy to work with and very responsive. She worked with us for over a year and really listened to our needs. We enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her.

Heidi Anderson (Home Buyer)

We worked with Chris and her colleague Trevor to sell our house in Raleigh, NC during the summer of 2021.

This was our first experience selling a house (and in an unusual market) so we especially appreciated their knowledge and professionalism. We ran into some difficult and frustrating situations during our selling process, and Chris and Trevor were with us every step of the way to offer guidance, patience, and reassurance. We moved out of our house and out of state while we were still in the process of selling, and they looked after our house and made sure we made it all the way through to closing. So grateful to have had these two to answer all of our questions along the way. Highly recommend to anyone in the Triangle!

Casey Holmes

Trevor and Christine were great to work with.

Both were personable, and professional. They understood our needs, and patiently coached us to our very best home. Everything went smoothly from our first meeting through closing. Thank you1

Dwight Levi

We worked with Christine and Trevor to sell our home in Raleigh, NC during July of 2021.

From the beginning, this team helped us understand the process, priced our home appropriately, guided us on staging and repairs, helped us through a surprising need to re-list, and communicated regularly as closed after moving to another state. Would highly recommend to all!

Will Bocholis


Smith has been an excellent realtor! I have been more than pleased with his efforts/performance in selling my home. He has always been timely with verbal/written responses when I have questions, never have to leave a voicemail, excellent communicator, extremely helpful when I had requests, friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Trevor to anyone looking for a real estate professional!

Marybel velazquez (Registered Nurse)

For my job I work with a lot of vendors and partners, the NextHome Rare Properties team and Patty Topakian, in particular, know what outstanding customer service is.

They made the process of selling my Mother's townhouse efficient and streamlined from repairs and sprucing through closing. They really go the extra mile to make things easy for their clients and I appreciated it. Highly recommend this team!

Deneen Winters Bloom (VP of Client Success)

Chris was great to work with in the buying process.

She made the first time home buying experience really easy! She had a solution for all of my needs and made the stress of buying my first house less stressful.

Kayleigh Willis (Teacher)

I called Patty to assist with the purchase of my new build home.

She had previously helped my daughter & son-in-law buy and sell two homes. I saw how committed she was with them and knew this would be a good fit. Patty was readily available to answer questions, assist with materials selection and attend project update meetings with me and while I was out of town. I highly recommend Patty.

Joan LoPresti

I just want to start by saying that Christine as a God send.

She helped us find an amazing rental here in Raleigh while we were still living in Florida. Then when it was time to buy a house, we told her what we wanted and she was able to read between the lines and really figure out what we needed. Her thorough knowledge of the area helped us find an amazing house that met our needs and wants. She was there every step of the way from answering any and all of our questions, big or small. She never let us feel lost or confused with any of the stressful steps of the home buying process. Now that we have closed, she continues to provide us with excellent recommendations for trusted professionals who are helping us make home improvements. Christine has become more than just our realtor, she also became a great friend. We would highly recommend Christine for helping anyone find their next great home.

Allen Braginsky (Operations Content Developer)

Trevor and his team provide excellent custom service.

They went above and beyond in our recent sale of our house. Would highly recommend Trevor to anyone buying or selling a house!

Debbie Lamberson (Senior Team Leader)

Great in every way.

Provided advice on getting the house ready and answered all concerns. Informitive, friendly fun and experienced. Thank you Trevor !!

Fred Hylan (Home owner)

Trevor and his partner, Christine, were AWESOME.

We felt so supported and in such good hands all the way through the experience of buying our house. Our home needed some work done and Christine did fabulously negotiating with the seller to help cover the costs. We felt all along that she was recommending experts that she had personal experience with, which was really comforting. But Christine and Trevor also just saw us through the ins-and-outs of the whole process in a way that was so thoughtful and informative. There were no surprises - they prepared us for everything throughout. Even the last-minute stuff that popped up, they were able to go to bat about and make it all work out smoothly and on-schedule. Fantastic, thoughtful, personable, professional. We're first-time home-owners and we are SO grateful we worked with Trevor and Christine. They're really the greatest.

Amy O'Keefe (Assistant Professor of History)

Trevor was recommended to me by friends.

Several of their family members had used him as their realtor and we’re very happy with him. They did not steer me wrong. He sat down with me and discussed my goals for selling my home. Then he made it happen. He is knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I would never use anyone else if selling/buying a home in the areas surrounding Raleigh.

Deborah Miracle

As a first-time homebuyer, who decided to build his first home, it was great to have Trevor by our side.

He assured all of our needs were met and that all questions were answered appropriately. He was our advocate throughout the entire process! Should the need arise - Trevor will definitely be our man!

Archie McAlexander (Divisional Director of Care Management)

Trevor and his team are Top of Class.

We worked with Christine Molloy who stuck with us for over 2 years while we looked at home after home. She probably was ready to pull her hair out. She persisted in the most professional way and was able to find us the home we were looking for at a good value in this crazy sellers market. Kudos to Team Smith at Next Home

Kevin Hopkins (Sr. Field Underwriter, CLTC)

I was very anxious going into the house buying process.

I had many questions and little knowledge of the process of buying a home. Christine was the perfect person to help me through the process. She was very knowledgeable of the area and helped guide me through the process. She was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend using her when buying your next home!

Scott Maxwell

Trevor knows his stuff!

Adam C. O'Neill (Field services manager )

Patty Topakian found us an incredible home in North Raleigh in a highly competitive real estate market where homes are bought and sold within hours of being listed.

Her years of experience with respect to the the real estate market and ability to evaluate homes with respect to their true market value made all the difference in finding the right home for us. Patty was able to fully understand our son's accessibility needs, and how those needs translated into finding a home that would work for a physically disabled person. I would recommend Patty to anyone trying to buy or sell a home. She made our dream come true.

Frank D'Angelo (Director of Information Technology - Summit Technology Group)

Trevor is extremely professional and has the ability to calm people when they are stressed or agitated.

Always digs for statistics to share with his client so they can make informed decisions. Never views anything as a problem. Hands on - came to my home several times to meet contractors since I had already moved out of state when my home was on the market. Honest, has integrity and easy to work with.

Joan Zimmer (Business Administration Manager)

Trevor and Christine were PHENOMENAL!

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with them. They understood exactly what I wanted and worked hard to find the perfect home for me! They answered every question and provided all of the the resources and expertise I needed along the way.

Sarah Hurst-Kumar

Christine worked with us through a complicated market to help us find a home that suited our needs and wants.

She was very patient and always happy to check out homes and provide suggestions.


This was the first time purchasing a home on my own in 16 years.

It was an invaluable resource having Trevor there to support me but also allow me to claim this accomplishment ( if that makes sense). He was there for me with educated and informed decisions and recommendations, but gave me the room to make my choices. Very responsive to my emails, texts and questions. I have joked with him that we found the perfect home for me so I will never be moving. But I will be happy to share his information with my friends and coworkers so he can also make their dreams come true ??.

Holly Jones (RN)

Trevor is down to earth, not pushy yet always serves the clients best interest!


Patty and her team went above and beyond for my wife and I.

They worked around the clock to make a difficult closing happen on the house that our heart fell for (thanks to her finding it!). Patty and her business partner, Denise are amazing people who believe in their motto of "Humans Over Houses." I feel a huge debt of gratitude to the NextHome team and couldn't recommend them more!!

Justin Peterson (Director of Branding)

Trevor Smith was very easy to work with he listened to what we were looking for and took us to houses that fit our needs.

He was with us throughout the process of building our house and followed up with the builder throughout the closing. He provided us with quality people as we were new to the area. He has very good relationships with lawyers, insurance agents, contractors. He was always available and always got us quick responses. I would highly recommend Trevor and will definitely use him again if i buy or sell.

Alan G & Amy M Solotky

Trevor, as always has done an amazing job with both selling and buying our home.

He and the team will always by our forever realtor :)

Josh Palmer (Training Manager )

We couldn't have gotten through our long, arduous house search process without Patty!

We were first time homebuyers during one of the hardest times to buy, and Patty was always a great advocate and cheerleader for us. Thank you Patty!!

Paige K

Patty is an absolute amazing women.

She was always there for us to answer questions, walk us through the NC home buying process and help us with anything we needed. She is not only a great agent, but now a great friend. Thank you Patty for all your help, could not have done it without you!!!!

Barbara Soukup

Working with Trevor was great.

..he helped us find our house 6 years ago (2016) and we kept in touch with him. When we decided to sell our house (2022), we contacted Trevor and he was more than happy to assist us. The process was simple and straight forward. I would recommend Trevor to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.

Tim Schultz

My husband and I were looking for a home in North Carolina and Patty Topakian was our realtor.

She helped us find a beautiful home. We were from out of state and had little time to look for a home. When we met with Patty to view homes, she was well organized and constructed the day to view efficiently the types of homes we wanted. She was extremely knowledgeable and was very efficient about obtaining information needed to make a wise choice in a home. We had a wonderful experience with Patty because she was so good at her profession. She took care of everything and we closed on our home without any problems. We highly recommend Patty. Not only is she knowledgeable, experienced and ethical, but also, she was simply a pleasure to deal with.

Sonja and Joseph Scalia (I am a secretary to a Supreme Court Justice and my husband is an attorney at law.)


!! Do you have 100 STARS, because 5 is not enough. There aren't enough great words to explain who, what, how, when, where of Patty. My sister used her and "loves her some Patty" as she says. So of course, I made her my choice. Now I have purchased two homes in the past, and had used the same realtor, but wanted to go with Patty and so glad I did. Customer Focused - Always there, I thought I was her only client even though I knew I was not. This is how she made me and my husband feel. Accountable - What ever she said, SHE DID !! Time scheduled, she was there before. Call needed, made before you even knew it. What do you need, already had it done before you even thought to ask for it. Ethical - Did everything in a manner of so much respect, so much integrity, so much trust, so much dignity, so MUCH PATTY. I love her, I really truly do. If she needed my kidney, she could have it. When is the surgery, I will be there. All of the tools she uses to run her business, from DocuSign, to assistants there when needed. I'm in tears because there are no words good enough to explain Patty. Sincerely Angela Harshaw-Lockett

Angela Harshaw-Lockett (REMS Coordinator)

Trevor was amazing to work with.

This was my second time selling a house and each time the process is different; depending on the market or the house. Trevor walked me through every step of the process, kept me informed on an updates, and provided me all the support I needed. He is an expert in his field and would trust him to help me through the process again.

Jarrett Bailess

I rarely write reviews, but I had to in this case!

I would HIGHLY recommend Christine Molloy to anyone searching for a new or forever home. My husband and I are from Florida and needed to relocate to North Carolina. The big catch: we were only in town for 2 and a half weeks and we really wanted to find something while we were in town. Christine worked tirelessly to help us find a home - and we did! Our new home meets and EXCEEDS our expectations! We were tired and stressed, but Christine was always patient and cheerful. Even having other clients, we always felt that she was reachable and available. If you are looking for a honest, pleasant, and hard-working realtor, look no further - Christine Molloy is the right woman for the job!

Michelle Kisielewicz (Ballroom Dance Professional)

Patty is amazing!

She has helped us with both buying and selling homes. She guided us through the entire process and left no question/concern unanswered. Moving can be stressful in general but Patty made everything a breeze. I would recommend her to anyone! Go see Patty

Krista Scalia (SVP/Quality Control Operations Manager)

We Purchased our home without seeing it in person!

Patty assured us that it's a great home. When we attended the final walkthrough, we were so pleased and we loved it! We had a great experience working with Patty. Her professionalism and industry knowledge are unmatched. She always went above and beyond for us. We highly recommend Patty!

Shadia Hamzy

Trevor helped us find our dream home!

He was patient with our questions and a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for helping us Trevor!


Trevor is an outstanding Real Estate professional.

His knowledge of the market, not only in the Triangle, but regions as well, is top-notch. You couldn't ask for a better individual to entrust your home purchase or home sale with than Trevor Smith. He's a ROCK STAR in the Real Estate market.

Terry R. Lamberson (Director of Finance)

Trevor came highly recommended by a recruiter while i was looking to relocate here to Raleigh from Florida with my family.

I was looking for a rental property and worked with both Trevor and Christine Molloy. They were both very knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful in getting us a rental property here in Raleigh. Then when it was time to purchase our home the team of Trevor and Christine helped us find that one perfect house. We are very happy and grateful to have found Trevor and Christine to help during what can normally be a very stressful time. Highly recommend.

Allen Braginsky (Operations Content Developer)

Christine was extremely friendly and knowledgeable!

It was a breeze to work with her from start to finish. She kept our needs and interests in mind through the home buying process and helped us find and close on our dream home!

Kurt Willems

This is our third purchase with Patty and we couldn’t be any happier with all the work she’s done for our family.

She’s helped us find the best home for our growing family, and made the home purchasing and selling experience easy and fun! she’s definitely the best agent and we can’t wait to work with her again in the future. Thank you very much Patty!

Mohammed Riyami (Computer Engineer )

If I could give Christine 100 stars I would without hesitation.

She, and Trevor, are a remarkable team, always willing to go above and beyond their responsibilities.

Korina E Tyus

I was referred to Patty by a friend when I was "loosely" thinking of buying my first home.

Patty was patient with me knowing I was in no rush. She was readily available by text and e-mail and always on time to see properties. Before I knew it I made an offer on a property, and from there she was very reliable with a open line of cimmunication. I'm glad to have had her on my team as this process was new to me and she helped to make it smooth and streamlined!

Laura P (Integrative Health Practitioner )

Patty was AMAZING!

!! She went above and beyond the expected. She fought for us and got us the house of our dreams! We are forever grateful for all she has done for our family. She has helped us start a wonderful journey. We are truly blessed! THANK YOU PATTY!

Laura Godley (Kindergarten Teacher)

Trevor is an excellent realtor, and provided the best possible support for the sale of our home.

He was always available to help and answer questions, no matter how ridiculous the request was. Additionally, he his expert support team helped stage our house such that we got tens of thousands over asking and even sold higher than neighbors with significantly bigger houses! I have and will continue to recommend Trevor to anyone who might have need of his services, he's the best!

Steven Bush (Engineering Manager)

Leslie has handled a number of real estate transactions for us, and we would not use anyone else!

She is very thorough and professional in her approach, while being very accessible and enjoyable to deal with. She ensures open and timely communication throughout the process, and is persistent when issues arise or her client's need help. She works very hard to create a comforting, caring environment that helps her clients navigate through what can be a stressful process. We would highly recommend having Leslie on your team!

Gerry Wright

Patty is truly the best.

She is an utmost professional and has helped us and our friends multiple times in the purchasing/selling of homes. We wouldn't think to use anyone else in any real estate transaction. She is always available and goes above and beyond to make sure your clients are happy. A+

Deonte' L Thomas (Attorney)

Patty has helped us with three homes now.

Our first was in 2014 when we moved from up north and she was an excellent resource and partner in the moving process. She ran errands for us as we were not able to do much from so far away. We ended up in a great neighborhood close to all we needed which was great to establish roots in the area. She was attentive, very friendly, knew the area and had great recommendations. Smooth process, even when dealing with difficult sellers on closing day. The 2nd home was for my parents and again she was excellent with her communication and follow through. She was always available to answer our questions throughout the process. Smooth process. Our most recent purchase was our upgraded home. This was a year long process of viewing over a dozen homes and always keeping our options open. She was always very attentive, diligent in her research of the home and area, and was always flexible with her schedule to come and meet us for a viewing. She has been our rock during a difficult mortgage process where we had to switch lenders after our close date due to incompetence of lender. Her recommendation of a new mortgage banker and lender saved the day and got us into our new home! Couldn't have gotten through without her. Thank you so much Patty! Always our #1 choice!

Alexandra Alcantara (Creative Producer)

Where to begin in my praise of Ms.

Patty? She was steadfast and an excellent advocate on my behalf during my long-distance purchase. She is kind, smart, patient and someone you should count yourself as lucky to have on your side. I am a challenging customer to please because my mother is a seasoned real estate broker, so I know I hold the bar high based on years of watching her commitment to her clients. However, Patty delivers in spades! I am very grateful for her support.

Kristine Curtis

Trevor did an amazing job for me in selling a rental property that had an active tenant, which is a feat in and of itself.

He was communicative at every point in the process, kept me informed of any step that I needed to do and went above and beyond most realtors. He actively had discussions with the tenant, the HOA association, the closing attorney, and the inspector and repairmen. I didn't have to lift a finger except to sign documents when needed. He is knowledgeable, responsive and communicative, which is what you would love to have in a realtor. I utilized Trevor before to buy my current house, but this was my first experience with Trevor as a selling agent. I would highly recommend him as either a buyers agent or a sellers agent. Thanks so much Trevor.

Reggie Jackson (Product Monitoring Lead)

I got such amazing support and service from Christine.

She helped me at every turn and went out of her way to get my house the way it needed to be in in order to sell. She is so pleasant and responsible and knowledgeable and available. I would recommend her to anyone.

Catherine Rush Braswell (Teacher)

We recently purchased a townhome in Raleigh.

We chose Christine Molloy and Trevor Smith as our realtors. We were out of state and on a tight timeframe. We couldn't have been more happy with their expertise and dedicated effort in helping us find the perfect property sight unseen. We had a lot of specifics we needed and they were diligent in finding us the right place at the right price. We would give them 10 stars if that were an option! We are more than happy to recommend their services to anyone. Lloya Hall

Lloya Hall

Patty and her team were amazing!

She made the process so easy and enjoyable. The market was super competitive but she worked hard to show us multiple listings, and eventually we found the right one. We did not have to worry about anything!

Keith Strombotne (Director of Development)

Patty was fantastic!

!! She went far and above the call of duty to get my house sold. She offered great advice and worked with me along the way, always setting my mind at ease. She made the process as a seller as stress free as it could be with a big smile all along the way!!! Choose Patty for your Raleigh And Surrounding Metro area needs!!! There is none better!!! Thanks for everything, Patty!!!!

Christopher Cobb (Project Manager)

Trevor did a phenomenal job helping me find my perfect home.

He went above and beyond my expectations with every task involved with the purchase process.Trevor was extremely responsive to all my questions and kept me updated with any changes related to my home. I absolutely recommend Trevor and Christine for your next home purchase.

Sandeep Gavankar

Patty, is the absolute best realtor.

She handled the purchase and then years later sale of a townhouse I purchased for my daughter when she was at graduate school. Since I was out of area she went far beyond what you would except to help us purchase , even maintain along the way and eventually sell. She is the best. No BS :)

Jerry Schiano

From the moment we met Trevor, he made the process of selling our home easy, fun and stress-free.

Whether you're looking to buy or trying to sell, you won't regret working with Trevor!

Philip Thomas (Owner)

Christine stuck with us for the year and half we were preparing the sale of our house.

She provided great insight into the listing process that assisted with an offer to purchase in a couple of weeks. Happy with the successful closing of the sale of home.

N Renn

This was the first time my wife and I have sold a home.

We could not have had a better experience than the one we had with Leslie. She was extremely thorough walking us through the selling process. From the professional photos taken of our home to negotiations with potential buyers Leslie’s communication and readiness to help was very impressive. Ohh yeah and our house sold in ten days. Thanks Leslie for your hard work and making this process so easy for our family!!!

Kyle Thortsen (Director of Tennis )

Trevor Smith was very helpful in walking me through the selling process.

He is well versed on the real estate market, friendly and very professonal. I would highly reccomend him to family,friends,neighbors .... Thank you Trevor:)

Rick DaSilva (Logistics)

Trevor is an excellent realtor.

He was patient with us as we looked at many, many houses. He really listened when we told him what we were looking for and didn't push us to go above our price point. Very responsive with any questions we had, even after purchasing our home. Would 100% recommend.

Rachel Munoz

From listing to closing Patty was tremendous.

Communication was easy and very efficient. Patty answered all inquiries and questions along the process quickly and clearly. Patty made the selling of my home easy. It was a pleasure working with her and her team. I highly recommend Patty and her team at NextHome RARE properties.

Fran Strombotne

My family absolutely loved the level of professionalism and dedication that Patty provided in finding our new home.

The market is so tough right now, but she stuck with us and found the perfect home in a great neighborhood with both meeting all of our needs and in our budget. We purchased our home, sight unseen based on Patty’s inspection. She learned what we needed for accessibility , neighborhood and must haves. We highly recommend Patty.

Jack Montgomery

Trevor did an outstanding job being available and communicative during my hunt for a new home.

From the beginning, he was always readily accessible to meet at any property and wrote up offers immediately after given the order. After my offer was accepted on my now-home he was attentive and helpful for me each step along the way from hiring a great inspector to establishing and maintaining solid communication with the sellers and listing agent. It was a pleasure to work with Trevor and I would recommend him to anyone, especially to first-time buyers.

William Kersting (Associate Software Engineer)

Trevor and Chris were awesome!

Best real estate team I've worked with. They are on top of things like no other team I have ever experienced. Will most definitely recommend them to anyone I know looking to buy.

Todd Melton (Homebuyer)

Trevor Smith recently helped me sell my house.

He was professional and patient with me as I determined my priorities. Then his suggestions were spot on and he made sure my wants and needs were met through the whole process. His caring personality made this difficult life transition much easier for me and I would gladly recommend him for anyone wanting the personal touch rather than just a business transaction.

Carolyn Boyd

Christine was recommended from another person from Offerpad.

I called Christine she was friendly and professional over the phone. My husband and I met her in person we had a instant connection. Christine had all of her information together and from that meeting Christine worked hard and kept us in the loop. I was able to call her whenever I had a question and I was well informed about every step of the way. I would recommend Christine to friends because she’s that good.

Thank you Patty!

Despite having hard to find specifications for a home, she stuck with us and has made our move to Raleigh happen. Patty was amazingly attentive and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Patty to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Patty has been such a pleasure to work with.

She is very professional and knows her stuff. I was a first time home seller and need someone to hold my hand and guide me through each and every step from start to finish. She did just that a more. She recommended great contractor for home repairs. She was able to sell my house in 2 days! I would recommend Patty to friends and family. I am happy to say I will be doing business with her in the future.

Patty worked with me to find a townhome for my daughter as well as help me prepare for and list my current home in Durham, NC.

I have never encountered anyone in the real estate business that was more available, prompt and timely regarding all aspects of the buying and selling process. She made my daughter feel comfortable as a brand new home buyer and has been in constant communication with me as we schedule and get feedback on my home that is for sale. She knows her stuff - in and out - and has done all of the leg work for me and my daughter. Thank you Patty for an exceptional buying and (hopefully soon) selling experience!!

Tina Miller (HR Director)

Christine was extremely helpful throughout our home buying process.

She was helping us to purchase an investment property and was always willing to provide advice for everything from which properties to look at, how to get financing, and coordinating the closing. Also, she is a very friendly person to work with which makes all of the tedious things about the process much less of a hassle.

Trevor was very professional, I highly recommend him.

He did answer my texts and phone calls right away. He did help me tremendously with negotiating and advicing me all the time. If you are looking for a honest and great real state agent he is the one.

Maria (Robayo )

We have bought and sold several houses with Trevor as our realtor.

He is awesome! He is professional, his marketing strategies are the best, he keeps everything on track and reduces the stress for the buyer/seller. I had feedback from other realtors that his work was impeccable and one closing attorney office that they had never worked with such an on the ball realtor. He is great!!

Gaye Baker (Buyer/Seller)

This team made my first time home buying experience so easy!

Would definitely recommend. Now the hard part... packing!

Christine is a great real estate agent -- she is knowledgable about the market, quick to respond to questions, and easy to work with.

She gave us five-star treatment even though the condo we purchased was not a big-ticket item. I highly recommend her and would work with her again.

Liz Pauk

Christine was an amazing asset in the purchase of my mom's new home.

She took the time to understand our unique situation, found properties that would fit her needs, and helped us negotiate a great deal. Even during COVID, she met with us every step of the way, and she was creative in making the process seamless. I would highly recommend Christine Molloy and NextHome RARE Properties.

David Witek

My husband and I highly recommend Patty for any Raleigh Area real estate transactions.

She was introduced to me by a good friend and we hit it off right away. She is kind, knowledgeable, and has the patience of a saint! Moving from CA to NC is quite a change... We really needed to learn about the area and the school system, and Patty had all the answers. She is honest and straightforward, and after speaking with us, really understood what we wanted. We had many requirements of a new residence, and Patty combed through countless listings to find us the ideal home. Thank you Patty!

Michi Calcagno (Devoted Wife & Mother)

Trever and Christine made everything easy.

They were easy to get a hold of, quick to respond, and available to help with anything we needed. They were also proactive in finding us our home -- sending links, making suggestions, walking with us through many different homes, and using their experience and knowledge of the local market to help us make the right choice. I highly recommend them.

Holly Sweetwood

Working with Patty has been a wonderful experience and I truly cannot recommend her services enough!

Her knowledge of the market in the Triangle area helped us narrow down our choices easily. Patty was always available to answer any and all of our questions and gave us so much needed reassurance during such a stressful market! There is absolutely no one else we could have trusted more. Should we ever need someone to represent us with any real estate needs in the future, Patty is the only person we will call!

Kristen Amagrande

Trevor worked very hard to sell our home.

He ensured we didn’t lose money while helping us to negotiate fairly. Trevor was easy to work with and easy to reach at all times.

Jennifer Travis

Is there an option to give ABOVE 5 stars?

! Trevor Smith is an exceptional realtor. From the moment we said we wanted to list our house to close, he was with us every step of the way. His advice and guidance definitely speaks to how knowledgeable he is about the home market, industry and trends. I highly recommend Trevor whether you are buying or selling! He is not only an amazing realtor, but by the end, you'll be best friends with him. He truly takes the time to help, guide and educate. I felt the whole time he truly cared about our home as much as we did and wanted nothing but the best for us. We never felt pressured to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. Choose Trevor! He'll be in your corner and you'll love the end result.

Beth Bush

Trevor is the kindest and most helpful person I’ve ever met.

He was always there to answer any questions I had to help me make the most educated decisions. He will look out for what is best for you and guide you. It’s like working with a family member who is looking out for your best interests. I’d recommend him to anyone I know. He is a wonderful person and even more incredible real estate agent!

Jodi Schoenberger (Diamond Consultant )

Trevor is my go-to agent.

I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home, he will get the job done! I put him to the test by asking him to find me, negotiate and close on a house in 30 days...He made it happen in 25! He is definitely a quality agent.

Jesus Moreno

Trevor was an awesome realtor to work with from start to finish.

He was organize, prepared and professional. He made the home selling process seamless. The extra details and marketing materials provided to potential buyers were far beyond our expectations.
