"Great team to work with! Could not have asked for more showings!! Great experience and I recommend them to anyone and everyone! They knew how to stage my home and show it's potential."
"Rachael was amazing! We went through the whole process with her, and she found an amazing selection of homes in our price range, then negotiated very well."
"I worked directly with Amanda Cox within GreatNest and had the BEST experience as a first-time home buyer. Amanda took the time to make sure that I was comfortable and knowledgeable every step of the way, and helped me land my first home that checked every box that I was looking for! I would definitely recommend Amanda and GreatNest for those looking for real estate professionals within the Greensboro Triad area."
"Working with Tom Johnston on my first home purchase was absolutely awesome. He is an experienced negotiator, he has contract experience and very knowledgeable of each property we reviewed. He is communicable and amiable, very responsive and was a huge asset for me when making this purchase. I would confidently recommend him to anyone as a buying agent."
"I can't say enough great things about GreatNest! My wife and I had listed our home for sale by owner during the last few months of 2017. In November of 2017, They reached out to us via phone. We had a very encouraging conversation about our home but at that time, decided we would like to have a little more time with the FSBO listing before listing with an agent. During those months that our home was listed by owner, we were contacted by a LOT of different agents. GreatNest’s level of professionalism, knowledge of the area, and the sense that they really cared about our opinions and needs was the reason we decided to list with them. After having our home on the market for over four months, GreatNest helped us get under contract for over asking price within a week. Every step of the way they answered our questions, helped us navigate through negotiations, and even helped arrange repairs from the inspection. We couldn’t have asked for better agents to represent us and in future transactions GreatNest will be the first we reach out to. "
"Steve Vincent and his staff were extremely helpful and professional during the recent sale of my home. I am skeptical when trying a new product or service outside of the norm, but willing to investigate when money is involved. I reached out to Steve to meet with him for a full understanding of the GreatNest approach to realty. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he provided every single opportunity for exposure, if not more, than a traditional realty company (and yes I checked behind him). On top of that, the set fee model just simply makes sense and even leaves the opportunity for extra savings when you find your own buyer or a buyer using a GreatNest buyer's agent. Steve provided excellent advice during the initial meeting, took fantastic photos, and provided ample handouts to stay at the house and for me to share with others. Once I signed with him, Steve quickly had my home listed and we started showing immediately. Since this was my first home sale, I was less than knowledgable on the process. Steve provided a cell phone number and I texted him days, evenings, and weekends and always received a helpful response in a timely manner. Additionally, as a new step in the sale process arrived, Krys in the office always had an email to accompany it to walk me through what to expect and what was expected from me. I could carry on for an hour about my happiness with this group, but I won't. Just know, I signed a contract in a week and closed in another month. The process was seamless and Steve stood ahead of me every step along the way. I would highly recommend to anyone selling a home, to contact GreatNest for a simple meeting. Give him the time to explain his service and the money you'll save and I feel confident you'll choose his group. Oh yeah, and they can help you buy a new home as well, so it's not just sells!"
"I must tell you the experience working with your company has been exceptional. Thanks again for all you did to make our experience such a wonderful one."
Jim & Charlotte Tucker
"Steve was great throughout the whole process- met with us prior to listing and gave advise on things needing to be done to better market the house. Very thorough in communication and reporting on activity as the house was listed. Gave us all the details needed to get the house closed."
"Tom was an amazing agent and would use again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home. Tom was able to get us in to any house we wanted to view. "
"Steve and his professional team at GreatNest did an outstanding job of marketing and selling our home in less than 90 days. Their photography and virtual tour were absolutely beautiful and definitely helped to sell our home quickly. They work very well together as a team and their agents even showed our house to the new buyers for the first time while their agent was on vacation. We would highly recommend GreatNest and our overall experience was nothing but the best"
"Steve was professional, knowledgeable and attentive to our every question and need. We felt secure during the whole process and would definitely use them again. It was a very smooth process as well. We would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their house. Additionally, the marketing was great!! We (and our family and friends) were very impressed by the pictures and the way that the house was presented......top notch"
"I highly recommend Steve with GreatNest!!! We have used them twice in the past ten years and could not be more pleased. Thank you, Steve Vincent for all your hard work and efficient service!"
"Amanda Cox was amazing to work with. She was always there for us to answer questions and give support. I felt like she always had our backs from the first phone call about listing our home to the very end when we closed. Our process moved extremely fast, but Amanda never missed a beat and made sure everything was taken care of along the way. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home. I would definitely work with Amanda and GreatNest again! Amanda is THE BEST!"
"Professional, courteous, and helpful. I would highly recommend working with Brad Short, I have nothing but good things to say. The sale of our home went very smoothly and with no issues. Thanks for the help!"
High Point, NC
"When we started this journey, I told them that I wasn't really planning on buying for a while. They were still very gracious to take me around to look, and at one point he took me to an area where a home sold recently, but he wanted me to see the area. I noticed a For Sale by Owner sign, and they got me in to see the place. This is the place I bought. They kept me informed through every step of the process, he recommended an excellent home inspector, and negotiated a few things for me. I could not have been happier with his service. Highly recommended!"
"Steve Vincent is not only experienced, knowledgeable, and highly responsive, he is a class act through and through. He goes far beyond what is necessary when providing market advice, local knowledge of trends, he is highly intelligent and focused on any task at hand. Steve knows technology, why videos and having all your presentation ready to load on day one when you are ready to put on the market. He keeps up with the latest ideas, how to best show your house. Steve came to us through two colleagues the he successfully sold their homes. We have 100% confidence in Steve and his able and ready highly professional staff. Thanks Steve "
"Amanda Cox was great to work with when selling our townhouse. Her expertise and practical advice at every step made the process much less stressful than it otherwise would have been. Also, the fee structure at GreatNest saved us over $5,000 in commissions. Amanda also helped us in finding and purchasing our new home. We looked at many houses over several years. Her patience and honest opinions of the houses we looked at were key to us buying the right house."
"Amanda was a pleasure to deal with during the purchase of our new home. She was patient and knowledgeable. Her keen eye and attention to details helped us during the inspection. We highly recommend her!"
"Amanda was an absolute joy to work with. I wish I could have used her to sell my home in Michigan! It was a challenge coming to a new state, haven't done that in almost 30 years. Amanda very quickly grasped what type of home I was looking for and what are of town I preferred to be in. She's an extremely hard worker and also a lot of fun to be with. I wish more people in this world were as easy to get a long with as she is. I found her knowledge of what's important to look for in a house, when moving exceptional. She has a good eye for detail. Amanda must work 24 hours a day. She was very responsive to questions and comments I had about the houses we were either getting ready to look at or ones we had already seen. After we had looked at 20 homes or so I flew my wife done to look at the top five. Amanda and my wife got along very well and Amanda was able to summarize both our likes and dislikes into decisions that let us to the home that we are in now. We feel blessed to be here in High Point, and we love our new home. Had it not been for Amanda's hard work and sincere drive to satisfy her client (s) requirements, we would not be here today. Thank you Amanda,"
"Extremely helpful and patient with us as first-time sellers. I was concerned that a realtor wouldn't give our house much effort since it was so small, but they did a fantastic job. I'd recommend them to anyone trying to sell a home in Greensboro."
"Steve Vincent and his team were my second agency to list with. They did MORE in the 24 days then the previous group. Truly.....I had more showings, more interest, professional marketing. Hence the reason I had a contract in 24 days.....during a pandemic! I would HIGHLY recommend Steve and his team. I truly felt they did all they could to help me sell the house that had been on the market for a year previously."
"Amanda Cox - This woman is amazing! She has helped me sell and buy more homes than I care to admit and the process has been extraordinary each time. Can't say enough about how fabulous Amanda is and GreatNest as well!"
"Steve was phenomenal! He masterfully guided me through the process of preparing my home for listing, listing, negotiating offers and offer acceptance. My home sold in 13 days! I couldn't have asked for more. He was informative, patient, resourceful. I highly recommend Steve and the GreatNest Team!"
"We would highly recommend Steve Vincent to anyone looking to sell a home. Steve is a consummate professional. We were both so impressed with Steve's quick response to any question or problem we had. Steve was willing to go above and beyond to help ensure that the sale of our home went as smoothly as possible, thus helping take unnecessary stress off of us. Thank you, Steve, and the entire GreatNest team! "
"I have bought and sold a lot of homes in the US and internationally and found Steve and Amanda to be the most professional and accomplished team I've ever encountered. I am also a realtor in California and was beyond impressed with this team!"
"I used them in buying my new home and selling my old home. They are very knowledgeable and was very helpful throughout the buying and selling process. They were always available for calls or texts with questions and concerns and kept my interests at heart during the process."
"Amanda is super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were looking for a new home and are pretty particular, but Amanda was able to find the perfect place for us. Buying a house is a pretty stressful process, but she walked us through everything and had great advice on everything from financing to renovations. I would happily recommend Amanda to anyone; she's the best!"
"Steve offered a modern approach with great use of technology to help us sell our home. It was everything we needed and nothing we didn't. If you're thinking about selling or buying a home I would highly recommend GreatNest."
"Thank you all for your help in getting us transitioned from "for sale" to "sold." We really appreciated your suggestions, attentiveness and quick answers to our questions. We are very pleased we chose you to sell our home."
Dave & Anne Kessler
"I would very highly recommend Brad Short! He sold our property in only 11 days! He is very knowledgeable! He was very easy to work with and was always on top of things! He communicated with us often and kept us abreast of everything. He is a very honest and responsible person! We had a great experience with him, and will use his expertise again! "
Oak Ridge, NC
"I knew when I first met Amanda that I wanted her to be our realtor. We clicked from the very beginning. She has a genuine nature and is very knowledgeable. Amanda is EXTREMELY responsive and anticipates her clients' needs. She also gives thoughtful advice without being overbearing or pushy. She has a very patient nature and never seems rattled, no matter how antsy we (as buyers) became. We will certainly use Amanda again, if we ever need a realtor again. I highly recommend her for all your realty needs."
"The entire experience from start to finish was wonderful. All our questions were answered many even before we even asked! Most responses were immediate with professional and friendly service."
"A real estate group for the 21st century; my realtor has worked closely with me as I am listing my parents' home in another state. We stay in contact several times a week. He has made concrete suggestions on ways to improve the property, taken photos, listed the property all over the Internet to spread the availability of a home built with love. The marketing technique employed by GreatNest is outstanding."
"We had a complicated sale of our house (tree fell on the roof 12 days prior to closing) and several other issues that came up near the closing date. Each time Steve had a solution to keep things on track. His connection to people that we needed to hire to assure that the right things got done, on time, was invaluable. He saved us money and time, while providing great advice on neighborhoods that would meet our stated desires for our next home. Highly recommend Steve Vincent!"
"My husband and I were very pleased with GreatNest Realty agency and especially Steve. He was very knowledgeable of the market. He was always available of we had questions. Steve also had good direction to help us prepare our house to put it on the market"
"Steve and his team at GreatNest did an outstanding job marketing two homes for me which both sold. Their greatest strength and what sets them apart in the way they show the home. They do an excellent job with photography and virtual tours that put most other competitors to shame. The only one comparable in the triad at the high quality visual tour is Chitty and he wants twice the money to do virtually the same thing. If you have a property that you need to sell anywhere in the Triad I would highly recommend GreatNest--I still owe Steve a steak dinner that i intend to make good on!"
"Tom Johnston did an outstanding job selling our home!!! He will be our go to guy for future needs. He was prompt with information, fully knowledgeable and guided us through the process step by step. Again, won't hesitate going to him with future needs."
"Steve was patient in explaining the process of marketing and selling the house at a reasonable price and in a reasonable amount of time. He answered every question and supported us during the negotiations with the buyer. He consistently offered us his experienced professional opinion and was quick to share helpful information"
"Steve Vincent is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and was delightful to work work throughout both our selling a home and buying a new home process. I highly recommend him. And saving money was great too!"
"Amanda Cox and GreatNest are outstanding! She is knowledgeable and a great communicator. She was able to help us successfully find our next home and make a winning offer on our one and only choice as well as to sell our current home at a great price. Amanda was able to point out key things we may have missed as we were looking and made great recommendations on how to invest in our current home before listing. We were in great hands every step of the way!"
"Total care and expertise in every detail of the buying process! Very friendly personality and always willing to find the right home for all your needs. Very knowledgable in all matters of inspections and what to look for in buying a home. Excellent negotiating skills that exceeded our expectations! Would highly recommend!"
"Tom Johnston did a GREAT JOB!!! I would highly recommend him!!! He showed me several homes and when I found the one I wanted, he negotiated a fair price for me and stayed on top of the rigorous dealings of home ownership. It was a sincere pleasure working with him!!!"
"WE ARE AMAZED AT HOW GREAT STEVE AND STAFF SERVICE WAS TO US. THEY WERE ON TOP OF EVERYTHING GOING ON......THEY HAD ANSWERS TO ANY QUESTIONS WE PRESENTED TO THEM. WE WERE SO IMPRESSED I HAVE NEVER HAD THINGS GO SO SMOOTHLY. THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST REALTOR IN THE TRIAD. THEY SOLD OUR HOUSE WITHIN A WEEK. LISTEN UP EVERYONE --- THEY SAVED US MONEY......DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME IN THE TRIAD LOOKING FOR A REAL ESTATE COMPANY GO STRAIGHT TO STEVE AND HIS OFFICE --TRUST US THEY GET THE JOB DONE FOR YOU IN SUCH A CARING AND PROFESSIONAL WAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH."
"Amanda Cox helped us over 8 years ago but we ended up not moving to the area. When we were ready to look this winter in her area we called her and she has been wonderful. She is personable, knowledgeable, kind and considerate. We close on a home with her soon and it has been a great experience. I would recommend her to anyone and will do so"
"The GreatNest group was very helpful in selling our home quickly (offer in 6 wks!). The upfront marketing package was more extensive than the other two local "big" agencies we had tried to use two years ago. They provided timely and courtesy responses to all our questions and concerns (call backs and emails responding within the same day...often within minutes!) Through the entire process, we felt as if our home sale was just as important to them. We would highly recommend them! "
"After going through two realtors in a week, I found Tom. I am so glad I did! I closed on my home May 15th. Tom and GreatNest went above and beyond to help me. I couldn't be more pleased!"
"I was referred to Amanda from a friend and she was with me from the very beginning. I changed my mind and she was patient as we searched. She explained everything to be in detail. Ultimately, she had my best interest at heart from my money, to my safety. I couldn’t ask for a better real estate agent. Thank you, Amanda!"
"This is my 3rd real estate transaction with Amanda. I keep coming back for a reason.......she’s the best! If you have any real estate needs don’t even hesitate. Don’t call “the man”. Call “a man” AMANDA! She gets the job done right!"
"From day one we where confident that we pick the right realtor to help us sell our home, Steve was so helpful and knowledgeable that we sold in 11 days and saved $2770. Thank you!"
"We are very pleased with Steve's marketing of our home and the services he provided during our sale and closing. He's trustworthy, professional, and caring and we've recommended him to all of our friends."
"Tom Johnston is an amazing real estate agent! He was available to me every step of the way in both selling a home and in purchasing a home! Plus, his background gives him unique knowledge & experience that is extremely valuable in his giving guidance to his clients in evaluating real estate property they are considering for purchase. It appears to me that everyone who meets Tom instantly seems to make a connection with him. I appreciate that he has an easy-going personality, and even with all his knowledge and skill, he is a down-to-earth likable guy! I greatly appreciate that it was always easy to get in contact with him when I needed to do so. If I happened to try to contact him when he was unavailable, he always responded very quickly. Tom seems to really enjoy his profession and goes "above and beyond" to be of service to his clients. I highly recommend Tom Johnston and GreatNEST for your real estate needs!"
"We used GreatNest in both the buying and selling of houses and found them to be highly ethical, organized, thorough, thoughtful, fair, with great communication skills. "
"I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a home to buy. So knowledgeable about the area, and listen to what I wanted in a home. Very responsive when I called, emailed, or texted. A great sales person, very considerate, kind, and most of all - patient. I can't say enough good things. Always followed through with the utmost respect for clients."
"My wife and I were looking for a specific type of property - a rental property in a historic district in need of renovation. Amanda Cox was a big help in getting us through the buying process."
"Steve Vincent and his GreatNest Team were a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the sales market and he knows what to do to get your home sold quickly. The company was very responsive to me with questions and emails. I will definitely use Steve Vincent again as my agent in the future. I was very pleased with his handling of the sale of my home"
"I had my home on the market for about a year with a large, national real estate firm. I switched to Steve Vincent's GreatNest group and within a few months they had sold my house. I was very impressed with how they handled the entire process from the initial staging of my home to the closing of the sale. Steve is by far the most knowledgeable and professional real estate agent/broker with whom I have been associated. I strongly recommend GreatNest for any real estate transaction. I can assure you that going with them will be the best move you can make concerning real estate."
"Steve was excellent to work with! He is very knowledgeable and always responds promptly. He was referred to us by a friend and I would refer him to anyone looking to sell their home. We sold our home in 2 days!"
"When I first contacted Steve Vincent at the Vincent Group, I had two requests. Those requests being for him to make the process paint by number easy for me and get the property sold as soon as possible. The paint by number part was in effect at the first meeting when he asked the basic questions and explained the forms to me. The second request, to get the property sold quickly was fulfilled when he said that it should not take more than two weeks in the current market. Steve sold my condominium in 9 days! BOOM!"
"GreatNest is phenomenal! Very professional, friendly, and supportive. Helped us sell our house in 3 days. Gave us good information on how to stage the house for pictures, and fully explained the process. My wife and I really enjoyed working with them."
"I was a first time home buyer not in a huge hurry when I first talked to GreatNest. Unlike other agencies, they didn't shut me off due to not wanting quite as quick of a turnaround. They helped me to really narrow down what I wanted, and then to find it. They super helpful with all the questions I had, as well as making the entire process very smooth and stress-free."
"I was recommended Steve's group by my brother, who had sold his home less than 3 years ago. Unlike my brother, who had an initial unsuccessful attempt to sell through a popular realtor agency, I decided to list my home with GreatNest prior to any other realtors. Steve came for an initial consultation within a few days of my telephone call and helped me understand exactly what the process of selling my home entailed. He was honest and helped me understand the key factors necessary to sell the home. Communicating with Steve and his group was extremely easy and open. Id recommend their services to anyone. The exposure was great as there were lots of showings"
"Customer service oriented and professional in every aspect of real estate buying and selling. Great staff at GreatNest. I trust Steve's judgement and intuition as he has a great deal of experience in the Triad area. I and my husband have flipped 8 houses and they have given us great advice on what customers are looking for on the resale. Great communicator as well!"
"Brad Short was very respectful and on top of all the details that enabled all the selling partners in this transaction to trust his expertise in real estate sales. I’m thankful for getting to know him and I’ll use him again in the future. "
Oak Ridge, NC
"Working with GreatNEST to sell our home was very enjoyable and made the sale process easier than I imagined. They were knowledgeable, informative and maintained a respectful, no pressure attitude. They guided us through the entire process from listing, through negotiations, all the way up to closing. Even provided recommendations for handymen to make DD repairs. I cant say enough great things about GreatNEST. Would highly recommend."
"Amanda Cox is an excellent person to work with! This is the 2nd house we have purchased with her as our buyers' agent. She was available to show us all the houses we wanted to see, and recommended others too. She was patient with our indecision, and was a good advisor regarding the condition of the properties and the questions we should ask. I also think she is an excellent negotiator, and she really worked for our best interest. We found the home of our dreams, and I highly recommend her! "
"Tom was so prepared and professional. On our first meeting, to just see how it worked, he had already pulled information on the property and house. Tom answered any questions completely and even provided information on things we had not thought of. Tom listed our house on a Saturday morning and we had multiple showings the entire weekend. We, also, had multiple offers the first morning. House sold quickly. Tom knew his stuff (helped he was a contractor before), always available to answer our calls/questions and kept us updated. We definitely will recommend Tom Johnston to our friends/family."
"Amanda was extremely helpful with all aspects of our buying experience. Amanda was always very friendly and willing to help. Her professionalism and overall service orientation speak for themselves. She goes above and beyond to exceed expectations and I would highly recommend her!!"
"My agent was Amanda Cox. Amanda's experience in the real estate world is superb. She is knowledgeable, warm, personal and makes you feel at home before locating the home of your dreams. I am delighted that I worked with her and would recommend her to others. In fact, I have already recommended her to friends."
"Tom is an excellent realtor. He is very knowledgeable, honest, and responds quickly to calls, emails, and questions. He cares about helping others and is very nice to work with."
"Amanda is absolutely amazing. She’s very knowledgeable and a real professional. It was a pleasure working with her. She was invaluable to our process of buying our home. We could not recommend her more."
"Amanda was amazing to work with. She was very responsive, and knowledgeable regarding the purchasing process including the negotiations necessary. She went the extra mile providing advice on our purchase, and I even sought her advice regarding my home sale. Even though it was outside of the scope of her work, she happily provided input where she could. Moving, and purchasing a home can be daunting, and I couldn't recommend Amanda more to help others through this process."
"We were very impressed with Steve's demeanor and personality. He gave us a great comparative market analysis. I understood his adjustments to closing prices on comparable sales better than on CMA's from several other Realtors we interviewed. I was initially nervous because his suggested listing price was higher than anyone else's but he did his homework. He had taken into account our tolerance for an extra month or two on the market and in the end we closed a little higher than any other agent we spoke to would have listed at. In addition to a higher selling price and a mostly smooth marketing and closing process we were also impressed with his cap on his commission which further increased our proceeds from the sale."
"We would highly recommend Steve Vincent to anyone looking to sell a home. Steve is a consummate professional. We were both so impressed with Steve's quick response to any question or problem we had. Steve was willing to go above and beyond to help ensure that the sale of our home went as smoothly as possible, thus helping take unnecessary stress off of us. Thank you, Steve, and the entire Greatnest team! "
"Steve and his wife, Krys, did a very thorough and professional job selling our home. When I would email or call with a question, Steve was always very receptive and punctual to return calls quickly and/or answer even dumb questions I had. When I was anxious to sell quickly, he calmed me down and reassured me that everything was being done to view the property and under control, relieving my anxieties. He also gave some excellent references for needed work on our home that we will continue to use in the future. PS Love his daughter too! That's why I chose this firm originally. :) Glad I did."
"We’ve worked with Amanda Cox several times and she’s one of the best agents we’ve worked with. Highly recommend if you are in need of a top-notch real estate agent. Thanks, Brian and Christina"

"I recently had the pleasure of having Rachel Ward as my agent while buying a town house in Greensboro. It was a totally enjoyable experience, she is very professional and knowledgeable. She was able to answer all my questions and did all the coordination with inspectors, appraisers, cleaning and maintenance crews. I will be purchasing another property in the near future and I look forward to having Rachel as my agent again."
"Amanda has helped me find and purchase 2 homes with knowledge, expertise and professionalism. Her skills and outstanding customer service are above all others. Highly recommend!"
"Rachael Ward is the best and she will be the one I will work with on all future activities as well. Very responsive, knows the market trends, and truly felt like she is doing it like it is for herself !!!!"
"Tom helped us find and purchase our 1st home. He was very attentive to our needs, always answered calls and texts, and got us a great house for a great price. He has a background in construction, so he was able to catch things that might have cost us a lot of money down the road. I'll be recommending him to anyone I know who is looking to buy a house"
"Steve is the best! His knowledge and kindness made the process a great experience. We have recommended him to all our friends in the Greensboro area!"
"Tom Johnston is an amazing real estate agent! He was available to me every step of the way in both selling a home and in purchasing a home!

"Great experience! This was our first time selling a home, and Tom and his team were incredibly responsive when we had any questions or concerns. We sold our home in four days and saved $2,500 by utilizing the experienced team with GreatNest. Would definitely recommend their services to others."
"GreatNest helped us find the perfect home for our family in Westerwood. They were attentive and really take the time to find out what you’re looking for. I recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the Triad!"
"Steve and his team provided excellent support and advice throughout the process and was extremely easy to work with. The applications and tools that they use constantly kept me up-to-date (via mobile apps) on showings, which included feedback from the buyer's agents. I have bought and sold many homes throughout the years, and this experience by far was the best"
" It all started when we had interest in a place we saw through Zillow. GreatNest was one of a few that contacted us, however they seemed the most personable and helpful. We really enjoyed our experience and they definitely were a huge help!"
"We were very new to the area, while GreatNest pretty much grew up here. A joy to work with, very accessible, and knew the ins& outs of entire process- the home inspection(s), getting mortgage, attorney, and able to guide us to reputable plumbers, painters, electricians. They guided us to a house of our dreams"
"Amanda recently helped me buy my beautiful new home! I really can't say enough good things about this very special real estate agent. She truly goes over and above when helping you find a home. She dealt with me during a very emotional time trying to purchase a home that would suit the needs of my family. She provided emotional support in addition to her vast knowledge of the market. Amanda is "in there with you" as if she was purchasing the home for her own family. She kept telling me "You will know it when you find the perfect home." She was right!!! She never once made me feel badly when I changed my mind every other day with the type of house I wanted to purchase. She wrote up 2 offers and then withdrew them when I regretted my impulsivity. She was always positive and a joy to be around. She was determined to find the perfect house that would make me and my family happy. She was extremely professional and always negotiated with a smile. But make no mistake, she was an excellent negotiator and represented me very well. Amanda always knew the questions to ask and had a thorough knowledge of the real estate business. She assisted me with every "bump in the road " and made excellent referrals for moving and repairs. Amanda also was willing to take calls from my concerned family with a smile. We truly drove her crazy with calls, but she never once complained. I feel like I have made a great friend during this process. I would highly recommend that you call Amanda and let her help you find your dream home. You will be so glad that you did!!"
"GreatNEST provided detailed advice when needed and helped us sell our home in just two days! Helped us with buying another home. Highly recommend them to anyone needing a knowledgeable realtor who will work hard on your behalf."
"Steve was very patient throughout the process which helped relieve some of the pressures associated with selling a home. A pleasure to have done business with him and his team. Great folks."
"Brad Short is amazing! He is very organized, professional, and has wonderful communication skills. Brad helped us tremendously throughout our listing and selling process. His honesty and knowledge helped us sell our house in 4 days, with multiple offers, and a lot in 11 days. We highly recommend Brad!"
""We just purchased a home, in the Greensboro area, with Amanda Cox as our Buyers' agent from GreatNest. This is the fourth house we have purchased, and we have sold three in 20 years. Amanda, being the 7th agent we have worked with in 20 years, has been hands down the best realtor we've ever had! She is highly knowledgeable, personable, efficient, prepared, responsive, a skilled negotiator, and most of all she really & truly watches out for your best interest in a genuine way. The brokerage was also great to work with overall. I highly recommend Amanda. I get nothing from writing this other than telling you like it is!! " "
"We chose Steve Vincent ad GreatNest after having two other agents (who were with ReMax). For us, his three biggest selling points were: fee only service (saving us $), knowing how to market the home, and his no-nonsense business demeanor. He did a great job with staging (using what we already had) and putting together the virtual tour. They were always amenable to our ideas as well. Our house was under contract in 3 months after being on the market for 15 months. We would highly recommend GreatNest!"
"Rachael Ward is the best, and I know that she will be the one I will work with on future activities as well. Very responsive, knows the market trends, and truly felt like she is doing it like it is for herself !!!!"
"We were looking to sell our home in this crazy market but did not want to pay huge commissions since it is a strong seller's market. I was referred to GreatNest by our builder (shout-out to Gingerich Builders), who stated that they charge a very fair flat commission and not a percentage. GreatNest was a terrific find! Amanda Cox (realtor) and Krys Vincent (their Business Mgr) were professional from start to finish: smart, personable, and quick to respond on everything. They are a FULL SERVICE agency and do not cut corners on anything. They provide all the same services (in person meeting, advice, open houses, MLS listing, signage, settlement support, etc.) as other real estate agencies but without the high cost to the seller. We sold our house quickly for a great price and saved ourselves thousands of dollars in commission fees. Highly recommend!"
"Steve did a great job of guiding us through the process. Previous realtors I talked to were more interested in their goals than mine. Steve asked me what my goals were and then did his best to meet those goals. And we went through the selling process while living out of state."
"We were really pleased with Rachael Ward. Being out of town and living in another state, her knowledge of local area and North Carolina requirements were critical. Additionally, she was responsive, professional and patient."
"Steve Vincent had my house sold in 1 day! The sign went up about 12:30 pm and we had 8 visits and 3 offers by evening...great job! I also had a lot of questions because things had changed so much in the 18 years since I'd sold a home; Steve was responsive to my questions and was very patient as he walked me through the process."
"Steve Vincent and his team were awesome and amazingly helpful in the selling of our home in High Point. They were also instrumental in helping us purchase another home in Greensboro. Steve and his team sold our home quickly and efficiently. Their sales, organization and administrative skill-set were excellent and second to none. We would highly recommend Steve Vincent, and we plan to utilize them in the future when selling and purchasing a home"
"Wonderful experience working with Steve and co...easily recommend them to help you with realty dealings. We sold our house a couple of times in this process and each time Steve was quick to provide feedback, guidance and relist. Steve was very responsive to our needs and market conditions. Once we found the price sweet spot, the viewing flowed again."
"I couldn't imagine dealing with any other realtor in Greensboro! If Steve can't get your house sold, nobody can. He is always readily available for problems or advice, and is very aggressive in dealing with people who are showing serious interest in your house. We actually moved out of state soon after our house went on the market, and left an empty house for Steve to sell. Whenever anything came up that needed attention at our house, Steve took care of it for us. I highly recommend him and his agency.....Great Nest!"
"It couldn't have been any easier working with Steve Vincent and the GreatNest group! He gave suggestions, was willing to listen to my thoughts and we were able to come together for the best outcome. My house was listed at lunch on a Friday and had multiple offers by Sunday."
"At first I thought GreatNest might be some sort of cut rate realty agency with minimal service. But, as it turned out, it is a full service agency with excellent service. Steve Vincent is top notch. They just offer their service for less."
"Every step of the way, Steve Vincent and his staff worked diligently on my mother's behalf as we embarked on the path of selling her life-long home so she could downsize. Steve provided wise counsel, while exhibiting the kind of gentile patience and sensitivity that made the selling process a breeze for us. In fact, thanks to him we were able to sell her home the first week it was on the market. I'm absolutely convinced that it was Steve's knowledge of the market - and real estate in general - that resulted in such a great outcome. He put more work into that sale than we could ever had expected. And, looking back, his suggestions and guidance were always right on the money. Steve's a consummate professional; and he and his group deserve five stars from our family!"
"Rachael is wonderful. We are so happy to have found her and have her guidance in this very stressful process. She eased all our worries and was very knowledgeable! We are excited to not only call her our realtor but also our friend. Thank you Rachael Ward!"
"We were delighted to have GreatNest as our realtor. They are very knowledgeable and we will be using them again soon to sell another house for us. Good communication skills and good negotiators."
"Amanda Cox helped us sell our home in January 2022. It was a difficult move for our us because we loved our home. She is excellent at her job and above all a kind and compassionate person. Amanda followed through with everything she said she would do, negotiated well on our behalf, answered all our questions and helped us anyway she could. Amanda has helped us in the past buying our home and then selling it. Look no further she is the one you need!!"
"I would highly recommend Tom Johnston (GreatNest) to sell your home or assist you in purchasing a new one. I worked with him to sell my home in NW Greensboro. I initially interviewed Tom and another highly visible realtor from Y&L. I really liked the model that GreatNest works under. It was a great fit for me! He came to the meeting very well prepared & always answered my calls very promptly. He came back to me next day with a suggested price for selling. His suggestion was 14K higher than the other realtor. He understood the market and our product with it's many upgrades for the area. We had our first offer within 3 days and we got a full price offer within 39 days. His negotiating skills were awesome! Thanks Tom! "
"Rachael Ward made our home buying experience so easy. She found us the perfect home. She was professional and kept us informed throughout the entire process. I would recommend her for all your real estate needs."
"I've worked with several real estate agents over the years. Brad Short is by far the best! He stays on top of every detail, communicates like a pro and stands behind his clients. Don't hesitate to work with Brad!"
"We hired Tom Johnson to list our home. From the first day Tom took a special interest to all that we said and did everything as if it was his own home He was extremely knowledgeable about the market I have and will continue to promote Tom Johnson as professional real estate broker with a very high integrity"
"We have now successfully and easily sold 2 houses with GreatNest. We highly recommend this real estate group....especially our realtor Tom Johnston."
"I loved working with Amanda Cox in finding my new home. She was professional, knowledgeable, patient, negotiated a fair price, and I totally trusted her advice. We are new to North Carolina, and her knowledge and experience were invaluable."
"We worked with Amanda 10 years ago when we bought our first house. We enjoyed working with her so much then that we chose to work with her again! She treats you as more than just a client. She is invested in your journey and wants you to find the home of your dreams...no matter how long it takes!"
"We sold our house in 24 days with Tom as our realtor, he was such a blessing! He is extremely knowledgeable about Real Estate. His experience shows. Tom was very patient with us throughout the entire process. He was always available when needed or in short notice. Tom was very easy to talk and pleasant to work with. We couldn’t have done it without him."
"Amazing beginning to end. After being recommend by my tenant, I met and trusted them with listing and managing the sale process after I went back to Florida. Whatever hesitation or stress there might have been from being remote was dismissed immediately by their attention to detail and expediency. Would recommend."
"Amanda was great to work with and found us the perfect home! She was very quick to respond, even late into the evening. She was very patient with us as we were working on selling a home too. She asked all the right questions and only showed us houses that fit our needs (and budget). I highly recommend Amanda to any prospective home buyer"
"Tom is a very busy guy and since I was in Fl thru most of our buying we sometimes missed each other Overall it was a great experience and we found a great home despite my being in another state! We appreciate all of his help thanks!"
"I’ve worked with Tom Johnston–an excellent agent on multiple listings. He listed my latest property and we were under contract in 3 days, at asking price. He is an excellent negotiator with a very personalized touch. He’s loyal, knowledgeable & Highly recommended! Tom is your go to guy!"
"Had a great experience with Tom Johnston in all areas including the listing and the actual sale of our property. His experience in construction was really a plus as well when it came to suggestions."
"Steve and his firm are top notch. Experience, knowledge, sound advice, negotiating acumen, great marketing - just a few of their strengths. For me, the right real estate professional is someone you can trust, someone that has all the details covered so you can rest easy at night in the middle of a trying real estate transaction. Steve and his firm have been the right choice for me and my family for our past three home sales and purchases, and I earnestly recommend them to anyone looking for expertise and peace of mind."
"Steve did a great job from start to closing on our house. Thankful we had an experienced professional handling our sale. We look forward to working with him again. One if his agents sold our house do we saved thousands in fees. Thanks Steve. "
"This was our first time selling a home and we couldn't have been any happier with Steve and his team at GreatNest. They were all so great and answered any and all questions we had. They made this a great experience for us and we would highly recommend. We will use them again for all future sells and buys!"
"Amanda Cox is very professional, detail oriented, and easy to work with. She went above and beyond to make the listing, selling and closing process smooth and painless. I would highly recommend Amanda and GreatNest for any real estate transactions."
"Tom Johnston was a pleasure to work with, his suggestions saves us allot of time and money. He kept us informed in every aspect of the sale, he is a great communicator. He worked very hard to make our sale as effortless as possible. Tom is the best."
"Tom is top notch. This guy knows what he is doing! My offer was rejected by the seller, Tom was excellent in negotiating a deal with the seller for a similar property."
"Working with Amanda Cox was a pleasure. She was very helpful in every step of the sale. She was always cheerful and very prompt in responding to all requests we made. I would highly recommend her. "
"Helped me search and buy my first home. Great local knowledge and really helped me feel comfortable during the ins and outs of the process. Thanks!"
"Our realtor, Amanda Cox, made the homebuying process very smooth! Amanda was very knowledgeable about the market and the area where we were interested in purchasing. She answered all our questions, responded to us in a very timely fashion and kept us updated with any news about the home we were purchasing. We will definitely recommend Amanda to all our friends that will need a realtor in the future. We love our new home and thank you, Amanda for helping us find it! "
"Tom Johnston is the BEST!! He was so willing to help in anyway to sell my property. He was always pleasant and immediately responded to all my questions and concerns. I am recommending him to all my friends in the area. Thanks Tom....You are wonderful to work with. "
"We had a unique scenario with selling off multiple properties and trying to close them all at the same time. Steve stepped up to the plate to take on the challenge and he hit a home run! He made the process easy because of his years of experience and knowledge of the market. With so many moving parts he never made us feel overwhelmed because of his excellent communication skills. He only pulled us in when necessary (negotiating, signing contracts, etc.). He is reliable, trustworthy, easy to work with, and we highly recommend him!"
"My husband and I are out of state investors and Rachael Ward helped us find and purchase our first investment property in the Greensboro area. Rachael has strong insight into neighborhoods, comp sales and the rental market. The offering and closing process was very smooth and Rachael has put us in touch with local contractors, painters etc to help us get it ready to rent quickly!"
"I worked with his associate Tom Johnston and he is the best. Before I met him l had met other agents from other agencies but he was different. Very committed and patient with me. He was never irritated by anything l did or said. Rather he had our interest as his primary concern. After seeing several homes in different directions we finally decided on this home. We are very grateful for him and we will keep the friendship going for the future."
"We are so fortunate to have met Rachael while viewing a house. She was very helpful as we searched for a home. She took the time to get to know us and understood what we wanted. She personally measured the square footage of a house when she became concerned the listing was wrong. She provided sound advice for our offer and she helped us schedule some improvements to the home. She also helped us sale our existing home which sold in less than one day. Rachael goes out of her way to help and she will be the first person we recommend for anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"By far, the very best Real Estate Agent and company I have ever worked with. Tom Johnston and everyone at GreatNest, went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you, I highly recommend! "
"Amanda was our buyer agent for our recent home purchase. She is a consummate professional in answering our questions in a timely manner and explaining the buying process. Amanda knows the market well and assisted us in making a fair offer price and handling the negotiating with the sellers. Amanda, once we were in escrow, provided and followed up on the inspection and other critical items in the closing process. She kept us informed and made sure all our questions were answered. I would highly recommend Amanda Cox to anyone seeking to purchase a home in the Triad area."
"Sharon and I can't thank you enough for your friendship, guidance, wisdom, and circle of business relationships that made our house hunt, and the final race to the finish line seem almost effortless. You helped us find the right place, validate that we were not rushing to judgment but rather were making the right decision, find the services we needed -- everything from a septic guy to a home inspector to a lender to a closing attorney -- all ready to step up and make the process flow smoothly, and did it all with a great sense of humor, willingness to humor us for over a year of seemingly endless searching, and being there when and wherever we needed you."
Ron and Sharon
