Wardell and Candice Smith

Dever represented my wife and I when we bough our first home.

She was very flexible when showing us many... (MANY) properties. Dever always had a great selection of houses lined up to see in the areas we were looking. She had valuable input that was offered but she balanced this well by ultimately letting us form our own opinions. Whenever we needed anything she was very responsive and prompt for appointments while being super polite with any interactions; email, calls etc. She was instrumental in helping us through the home buying process from start to finish, pre-loan approval, offer, acceptance the whole thing! It was like having an excellent YouTube tutorial or the a guide book with us at all times. She will definitely be representing us for our next real estate venture. 10/10 would recommend.

Robin has always been wonderful to work with.

I first heard about her because my brother and father worked with her to sell their homes and she helped me buy mine.

I never felt pressured to buy a house and we ended up with a house my family and I enjoy.

I must share our story with those who are reading it to truly understand how dedicated and professional Melinda is.

We have looked for our dream home for over 8 months, That is, until our path crossed with Melinda's. That wonderful day, Our phone conversation was all about Us explaining in detail on what kind of home we were hoping to find, How important the location is to us...the property size and being private along the Elizabeth river if possible. Everything she explained to us on what she was going to do in sending us homes to look at thru email or text or both, Happened instantly and kept happening each day. On a Friday evening" 8 days from our first conversation" at 8.30 pm I got a text, Hey, This home just hit the market. Wow, We looked at it, Loved it and she had already schedule an appointment for us to look at it the next day, Saturday at 4pm...Submitted an offer that evening. Our saving Grace here is how Melinda acted so quickly, put us where we were the very first people to look at this home. After we submitted the offer, she knew many people were going to be looking at this home. She advise us to be proactive in making some changes in our offer prior to the seller receiving all of the other offers. Again, Her expertise was right on. Her dedication goes beyond finding your dream home, for once we were told the home was ours, she stays with you all the way to closing. Melinda, You opened the door for Us " Jeff & Esma" Guided us in the right direction to where We now have Our Beautiful Dream Home. Our Hearts thank you Sincerely. With Love Jeff & Esma

This was our first time buying and selling and Tamara was very careful to explain every detail to us. she never pushed us out of our comfort zone, and ensured our house was in pristine condition to sell.

She was always open for suggestions, which helps ease your mind during this major endeavor, while making you feel as if you had a partner, not just an agent. Robin created one of the most impressive 3D designs of my home, that I have ever seen and I am sure that it was a major factor in receiving multiple contracts and a speedy closing. Robin, I thank you and your staff at NextHome, for helping us through this transaction!

Mattison jude

When relocating back to the area, it was important for my family to find someone who knew the Hickory area of Chesapeake, and we were fortunate to find Robin & NextHome.

Not only did Robin know the school systems, local businesses, and neighborhoods in the desired area, she also had tremendous knowledge and experience with understanding realistic home values during a price boom this area hadn't seen in quite a while. Whether you are selling or buying your next home, we would highly recommend Robin and her team at NextHome

Tommy Lassiter (Director of Operations)

Dever made the home buying process incredibly easy and streamlined.

We reached out to her with our new move to North Carolina. After 10 minutes of telling her what we were looking for, she sent us an email of all the available houses we would like. After letting her know which ones we would like to see, she set up a schedule of all 8 houses for that Saturday! She gave us her feedback without us feeling pressured to take her opinion when looking at houses. After putting an offer on a house, she was very quick in answering all our questions either by phone, email or text. We would recommend Dever for anyone who is looking in the Virginia or North Carolina area. Thank you Dever!!!

We listed our home in the Great Bridge area with Robin after having it on the market previously and receiving very few showings.

She was an absolute breath of fresh air - everything you pray for in a realtor. Super responsive, flexible in her schedule and available to go see houses whenever I was, looked out for concerns I hadn’t even thought about, and truly cared about finding a home that fit my needs.

Stewart was phonemenal throughout entire home buying process! She was always available for any question or concern, very transparent and knowledgeable when it came to discussing procedures that this journey consisted of. This process was lengthy but she made it a piece of cake , from gathering information regarding grant programs, to ensuring all my must haves were checked off of my home buying list. To anyone looking to purchase a home she’s definitely a sweetheart and the BEST AGENT !


How to begin!

We have been looking for a condo for about 2 years. Melinda was faithful in sending me information almost daily to help in that journey. When our house sold we had to find something quick, Melinda gave so very much of her time to make that happen. She was always quick to answer any question, if she did not know the answer, she would tell you so and find the answer. I never sent a text, email or phone call that was not answered right away. The main quality I found in Melinda as a Real Estate Agent was her patience, she made us feel we were the most important clients she had everyday. She also followed through will all steps from looking to closing. If we ever need another Real Estate Agent you can be assured it will be Melinda Swager.

I couldn’t have wished for a better person to work with during my first home buying process. She’s very resourceful and informative to what you need and what you can expect. And most of all she does this out of the kindness of her heart, her incentive is making you happy. She kept each of my family members in mind, and her goal is to satisfy you and your family. If you’re in search of a new home, I highly recommend her a million times over!!! Erika Thank you for helping me find my brand new dream home!

Debbie was so wonderful to work with and I always felt like it was always a team effort!

In the beginning she provided lots of data and past histories for pricing the house but I never felt fact we randomly came up with almost the same selling price. Along the way there were several bumps in the road from small, little things but Debbie remained always the consummate professional and was my voice of reason and my go to for win-win situations. We had an offer in 2 days but lost the offer for unforeseen reasons. Debbie remained calm and reassured me we would have another offer in no time. Sure enough, we had 2 offers the week it went back on the market. I can not say enough great things about Debbie but I can say with clarity and great confidence that she is a true treasure and a gem to work with and I hope I am able to send her as much business as possible. I highly recommend working with this talented, fun and energetic Real Estate Professional.

Gregory Kennedy

Robin is an awesome communicator and kept us abreast at all times.

Her response time is incredible. She has a "can-do" attitude and is cheerful and pleasant. She is a knowledgeable agent you can trust and I highly recommend her.

Regina Speidel

It was very hard for me to find a property and Miss Alicia was there every step of the way with no complaints and always encouraging me to go with what I want.

She helped me in every aspect she can greatly. I would go through her again without hesitation if I have the chance.

Albert Tejadq (Navy)

Melinda was the best!

Grace kim (Owner of business )

Robin was phenomenal.

We reached out to Robin to sell our rental property while we were stationed in another state AND selling with a power of attorney. She took care of all the communication with other parties and kept us updated. She forwarded necessary documents to her lawyer to confirm the POA would be sufficient. She set repairs to be made on the the home with her handy-man.

Ellie and Broward Maryan (Military Family)

I would highly recommend Tamara Orlando as your real estate expert.

She helped our family sell our home as well as find and purchase a new one! She's patient, professional and very detail oriented. She went over everything with us. There were no surprises and everything went very smoothly! We will definitely be using her again in the future!

Teresa Foreman (Yoga Instructor)

Melinda went above and beyond to help me buy my home.

I wouldn't trust any other realtor to do what she did!

Tracie Moran

I can’t thank Erika enough for helping me sell my home and find my dream home!

From day one she was informative and provided me a packet with all the information I needed to sell my home at top value. I was able to sell at a price well above what I intended. She made the process nothing but smooth. Additionally she helped me find a new home to move into in a crazy market. She was patient with me as we went searching from home to home throughout different cities. If you want a realtor who listens, is patient and will put your wants and needs first then she is the realtor for you!!

Tiana Scott

She did an awesome job!

Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor/friend! We told her what we wanted, we we needed it by and she made it happen!

Natasha Richardson (Assistant Property Manager )

Debbie was amazing.

Always responsive, extremely helpful, provided great advice. Highly, HIGHLY recommend her for anyone looking to buy a home! After many dead ends in our searches, Debbie showed us the perfect home. She took our needs into account and didn't try to push us beyond our financial boundaries. She provided recommendations on the process and never left us hanging when we needed help or had a question. She was also very thoughtful and continues to follow up to make sure we are happy in our home. Working with her was a fantastic experience.

Angela Willson (SAHM )

After years of being an out of state landlord, we decided it was time to put our house on the market.

Robin visited the house shortly after I contacted her and gave us some suggestions on repairs and an asking price prior to putting it on the market. The house went on the market on a Saturday and was under contract by that Monday. I would highly recommend Robin and her team to buy or sell a home in the tidewater area. We felt like all of our needs were met and the whole process, especially being out of state, could not have been easier.

Greg Quail (Project Manager)

Robin was a great Realtor and understood what we were looking for.

She was always very active in the search and always made herself available to look at houses. She made the process much easier than it could have been. I would highly recommend her as your agent!

Steve Day

Chadu is the best realtor if you looking to buy home in CHESAPEAKE AND VIRGINA BEACH.

Ron Sunday

DT is an amazing person.

I recently purchased my home in the Virginia Beach area from out of town. She was my boots on the ground taking time to negotiate several deals before we found a perfect. I felt extremely confident in her expertise and ability to handle issues on my behalf. She answered questions at all time of night to ensure fast closing . Call her anytime day or night she is always at the ready. ..


She showed the utmost respect and professionalism.

She was fast and easy to contact. I told her exactly what I wanted she got me exactly that! I will be using her to buy my home.

Kimberly Wright

Melinda is very knowledgeable, courteous and determined to find the right property at the right price for her clients.

She went out of her way to show us several units before we decided on one. From the time we put in an offer through closing, Melinda stayed involved throughout the entire process and always made sure we were up-to-date with what was going on. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a true real estate professional.

Paul Franklin

I would recommend Melinda to anyone who seriously is looking to buy a home.

She is very thorough and prepared at every property. She gets all available information for you so you can make the best decision in your home buying journey. We are renting, but she found us a rental that is nice and in a good area. She goes above and beyond for her clients and is available whenever you need her which is a lot to ask because she has many clients, but still makes time for each of her clients. Thank you Melinda for all your help!

Michael Martin (Transportation Routing Analyst Area Lead)

Melinda was great!

Anthony marshall

Erika did an outstanding job with selling our home and getting a dream home built.

She is informative, patient, and works everyday to ensure your needs are met.

Milton Sheard (Food Service Administrator )

She is the best agent I have ever met/ used, she's very professional and beyond helpful.

Not only she walked us through all the steps, explained everything, repairing, every detail, but also helped coordinating all the events when we're couldn't be there! She's always on time, and respond instantly. She is very personable but not at all crossing the lines or being remotely pushy in any way, I couldn't say enough good things about her. If you need an agent you need to call her.

Tian Fu

You guys have “No Idea” how many homes we seen from Hampton to Virginia Beach to Chesapeake to Norfolk, basically the entire Tidewater area.

But no matter where we searched, Erika was alway willing to make the drive. Erika truly understood the assignment and beyond & above. Thank you for helping us find our dream home and the perfect man/she cave for us (LOL). 10’s across the board, best hands down!!!!!

Jasmine Mercer

Melinda assisted us in a long distance house purchase.

When buying a house nearby it can be stressful but a long distance purchase adds an extra layer. Melinda went above and beyond to assist us. She also helped with recommendations for work that would be needed to the house. She was a pleasure to work with and made the process smooth!

Katie white

Robin took excellent care of my family.

She found exactly what we were looking for and made the buying process much less stressful than expected. Finding the right home with location near work and schools was amazing. I certainly recommend her for your real estate needs.

James Wood (Physician)

Robin is the best.

If you want someone who will work with you and go the extra mile, Robin is your real estate person. She was with us every step of this long distance process. Thanks Robin for a job well done

Donna and Dallas Moore


Erika was a blessing to me in my search for a house, from beginning to end. I had a friend recommend me to her and I would recommend her to everyone I know. I appreciate all you have done. Your a great person, for such a challenging job. Thank you for making dreams come true. Sincerely Adrienne, Britney and Gabrielle

Adrienne Hardy (Erika Stewart)

Tamara Orlando has been the best!

She was thorough, professional and great to work with. She kept us apprised about available appointments and always let us know as soon as a new one came on the market. She was honest, forthright, no games and payed attention to the details. It was like having a friend on the “inside” that was working for us. She juggled TWO of our properties. Kept everything in line and organized. I would recommend her over and over again!

Patricia Gee

Debbie was just the person I needed for my "resizing" move from Pennsylvania.

Her people skills are the best! She listened to my needs and responded accordingly. Debbie handled long distance communications quickly and professionally even a few last minute details. She has even followed up with me after the settlement and has offered to assist me with anything as I transition to the new area. I highly recommend Debbie Thompson.

Katherine Powell (New homeowner in Chesapeake)

I loved working with Tamara!

We had plenty of issues with our lending company but she made sure to keep up with them and assure that we closed when we wanted! She went out of her way to make us happy and I could not appreciate her more!

Harley Quesenberry

Amazing is an understatement!

Melinda was so patient with us as first time home buyers and so knowledgeable and communicative with what we were looking for. Day or night she was so responsive and if I ever have to buy a house again, I already know who my realtor is going to be.

Dyvon Guerrero

Knowing Robin for so many years I felt very comfortable with her handling my home selling/buying experience.

She helped me understand certain things with buying my home. She was very happy to help anyway she could. I feel she did everything she could do to sell my home. It worked, sold in under a month!!

Kelly Thomas (Office Manger)

Melinda did such a great job!

I was so nervous about selling my house before I moved out of state but she made everything so easy. Honestly, she’s amazing and the best person to have on your side whether you’re buying or selling!! She’s the best!

Elizabeth Norden (1st Time Home Seller )

We had the pleasure of working with Robin over the past few months.

Right as the housing market decided to go crazy, she was the calm to the storm and made us feel completely at ease during the process. We were living abroad, but it felt as though we were personally walking through every home we virtually toured while thousands of miles away. Robin was prompt, thorough, and always provided us thoughtful responses to our questions and concerns. In the end, we were able to secure a phenomenal home in a wonderful neighborhood and we couldn’t be more pleased. Even though we were halfway around the world, Robin made us feel like we had a friend long before we arrived. We can’t recommend her enough!

D and T Carter (Military Officer)

Erika was extremely helpful.

Always made herself available when we asked for anything. She was transparent about the entire process and she was good of simplifying the process. Never felt pressured or rushed to make any decisions. If this wasn't my forever home, I would call her up again to do business again.

Nick Twyman

Chandu Nisar is been great help through out our house hunt.

Thank you.

Vishal Dave

Working with Robin was a pleasure.

She was always available to talk with, easy to coordinate with when we wanted to see houses, and overall knowledgeable about the market and area we were shopping in.

Jacqueline Dugan

Robin did an amazing job helping us buy our first home- she was always very quick to respond to our questions and made sure we always felt taken care of.

We are definitely grateful to have had her knowledge and expertise throughout the process, which was made less stressful with her help. We couldn’t be happier and will highly recommend her to everyone!

Lauren & Dennis

Melinda is an outstanding agent!

!! She made herself available at all times and never made me feel like I was a bother. She ensured every one of my needs, desires and concerns were met. I would not recommend anyone else in the real estate world! You would be disappointed if you went somewhere else. You’d be missing out on real estate agent with amazing talent, superb communication skills like no one else has and an additional family member because that’s how wonderful she is! You will not regret Melinda Swager as your real estate agent!

Rochelle Reed (A lifetime client!)

It is our pleasure to recommend Robin Gauthier as a real estate agent for any individual or family that is searching for the ideal home.

Robin communicated with us while we were living in another state. She is highly talented and very smart. She does a great job listening to her client’s needs and does not waste time showing properties which do not meet her client objectives. I have the highest level of confidence in her and feel she would be able to properly assess any situation and figure out and effective solution. I am so happy with the house I bought. Respectively Submitted, Sharon Dingle

Sharon Dingle

Robin worked with us to determine the best time to list our home, gave us staging advice, and walked us through all the offers.

We got 9 offers over a weekend of 20+ showings! Robin is a true professional! Did I mention that she helped us find our Next Home too!

Jamie & Cindy Wakefield

Dever sold my home in 8 days.

She took care of dealing with all contractors and meeting them to get any repairs done on my home. Everything was done on time and quickly. This made everything much easier on me. I work full time and would not have been able to take care of everything myself.

Lynn Clevinger

Tamara, If you are looking to purchase your home, contact Tamara Orlando!

! She is very pleasant, courteous, caring friendly, and patient. She worked with my family every step of the way in purchasing our home and made the buying experience really great!! Please contact Tamara for your present and future home needs!!

Kelly Whidbee (Team Leader, Coding)

My major issue with this whole process is that there is not enough stars!

!! Erika came highly recommended by friends and she did not disappoint! She was very punctual and EXTREMELY accommodating. She guided me through two separate purchases over the course of a year (both of which were flawlessly conducted while I was out of town) and provided much needed guidance during both processes! I would absolutely recommend Erika to anyone and will 100% be contacting her again when it come time to sell!!

Dale Swift

Melinda was our agent for our new construction home & we couldn’t be happier with her assistance & expertise!

She is trustworthy, knows her business well, is very communicable & puts her clients wants and needs at the forefront. We highly recommend her as a buying or selling agent & would definately use her again. Thanks Melinda, you’re the best!!

Sheradyn Pitzer

When I first called Robin I was a little hesitant.

People always warn you about bad realtors just wanting to make some money and being shady. This wasn’t true for Robin. When I met her she had a colored streak in her hair and drove a tiny blue VW bug that had “listed” on her license plate. Her sense of humor but me at ease. Since working with her, she was always very professional and up front with me. She gave me her honest input and recommendations that never left me uncomfortable in my decision. She was so great with helping my family and I buy a home, that we used her again to sell it 3 years later. My wife and I are so grateful of Robin. She really did make our buying/selling very easy. If the military sends us back to VA, we know who we are calling.

Ryan Pontifes (Military )

Robin knows how to get your home on multiple platforms for advertising.

Her knowledge of the demographics of an area is a plus. I had no stress selling my home and I intend to use Robin to help me find my forever home when I’m ready. I would recommend her to my friends and anyone else who is looking for a realtor.

Cov Pack

Melinda was extremely professional, she cares about her clients and will work around your schedule.

She helped my family find there first house! Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house.

Christian Paulino (Detective )

Easiest home buying experience we’ve ever had!

Wouldn’t recommend anyone else, but Robin!

Lindsey DiBiaso

Melinda is an absolute rockstar.

She took us to places that completely fit what we were looking for and didn’t try to sell us on everything. She just let us look around. Then she gave us her honest opinion as to what she thinks would be a fair offer for that property. She works fast, and always responds to an questions ASAP. We had a little bit of a problem at the end with the seller fixing some issues with the property and Melinda handled it super quick to we could close on time. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their agent!!

Tyler Lajoie (Buyer)

I must say that Erika made this transition very smooth and acceptable.

And when problems arise she was right there and handle the situation, I would definitely use her again with future housing.

Roland DuBios Carr (Forklift operator and truck driver )

Very knowledgeable and honest, highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home or my next possible purchase.

Maurice Christian (city driver)

We had a wonderful experience working with Debbie.

She is very friendly and helpful and she worked hard to get us into our beautiful new home! Debbie was easy to get ahold of anytime of day, got back to us quickly on any and all the correspondence, and made the home buying process as quick and painless as it could be! Dale and Christine

Dale Jacoby


Dever Clevinger has been an outstanding agent for both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new condo. Dever started this process in June of last year while we were trying to identify the things that needed to be done for the successful sale of our home of the last 18 years. Throughout this process she answered every call and took the time to advise us about repairs and improvement that would help make this transition successful. Whenever we were challenged to find the resources we needed, Dever took the time to provide us with recommendations that allowed us to complete the preparation for the sale of our home. While this was happening, she also stayed engaged in finding us our future home. For over 6 months Dever was finding new places to look at while we communicated our ever-changing ideas. With a very optimistic and upbeat personality Dever never lost faith that she would find us a new home and she did. From listing to getting an offer within 30 days on the sale of our house and 30 more days to zero in on our new home. Dever was an absolute pleasure to work with, always available and she met all our expectations. We would and have recommended Ms. Clevinger to our friends & family for their real estate needs. We think of her as family.

Ron and Gina Morton

Extremely knowledgeable of the VA/NC area.

Very supportive and patient throughout a sellers market while working as a buyers agent. Market made it difficult to compete with a VA loan but still turned success in as little as two months of house hunting/Offers. Recommend using this agent for all future real estate business!!

Jordan Michael Holmes

Alicia was very helpful in our recent purchase of our first rental property.

She accommodated our sometimes weird schedules, was always pleasant and professional, and went the extra mile to help us move the transaction forward when we hit a few bottlenecks. We highly recommend Alicia!

Michael & Valerie Cudnik (Investors)

Thanks to you Chandu, we are now the proud owners of the perfect home in a beautiful neighbourhood.

Thank you for all your time and effort in helping get us into our new home. You made this whole process much easier and seem less than it could have been. We are so thrilled and cannot wait to add our personal touches to make it our own. We are forever thankful to you!

Dhara Dave

I believe that Robin is the best Real Estate agent that we have ever had the pleasure of utilizing.

We listed our house with Robin in October and left town for several months. During that time Robin had several open house events and always went by the house to check on it during our absence. We really appreciate her outstanding work and devotion to her clients. We had a great experience, and I am pleased to recommend her and her company to anyone selling their home.

ed walley (Home owner)

Melinda is a wonderful and professional woman who did an amazing job selling our house and making the stresses of selling very low.

I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in Hampton Roads!

Angie & Tim Blevins (Military)

Robin was great to work with on our recent sale.

I really liked her state-of-the art marketing approach that included a 3D virtual tour of our house and video posts to multiple websites in addition to the MLS. Her approach was very effective--- we sold our investment property at asking price within two days and had multiple offers! She was extremely attentive and responsive throughout the entire process. Robin's normal response time is immediate or within 10 minutes! I would highly recommend Robin whether you are buying or selling your next house.

Daryll Stephenson (Uptight accountant)

Melinda is very professional in handling our home purchase needs.

From the start of process of searching for a new home up to the closing time, she made sure that all of our questions and concerns were addressed to our satisfaction. She just make everything easy on our part and we are so happy that we chose her as our real state agent.

Romeo Encarnacion

Erika was spectacular!

She held my hand through the process. She always answered my calls or texts. She is very responsive

Barbara Connor (Retired)

She helped me to both buy & sell. Robin is very professional and knowledgeable. She responded promptly to all of my questions and kept me informed during the entire process. I would highly recommend Robin weather buying or selling.

Myra Gibble

Robin is awesome!

Very dependable. Always stayed in communication with us either by text or calling during our home selling process. Our home sold in 4 days!! Thanks to Robin and her expertise. Highly recommend Robin Gauthier to sell anyone’s home.

Susan Barnes

Might just be the most in-depth, patient person I’ve ever met.

Mrs. Stewart walked me and my wife (Latrisha) through the whole home buying process without missing a step. Most people claim your first home purchase is a nightmare. I beg to differ...... or maybe it was just our Realtor. The whole process was painless and worth it. Thank you Erika for everything. We definitely recommend Erika Stewart to be your future Realtor.

Marvin Nash (New Home Owner)

10 out of 10 would recommend this spectacular woman to anyone.

After trying to get into contact about houses and reaching out in certain areas of Virginia and North Carolina she was the one that answered. Went out of her way to help and do anything she could to get the best price, figure out what was wrong on the paperwork and ask questions that we didn't even think of. We are just moving into the area and she was already on the ball on what we needed. Thank you for everything you did for us ma'am and I highly recommend everyone especially military to use her!

Nichalas Paul Crane (Army Sergeant/Wage Leader)

Debbie helped us purchase our 1st investment property.

Her knowledge and expertise is over the top as well as her patience, understanding of our needs and personal attention. When it came time to sell, she fought for the best deal. We highly recommend Debbie!

Gina and Robert Smith

Working with Fritz and NextHome was a great experience.

Fritz eagerly put me in a home that I was very satisfied with. He kept the lines of communication open during the entire process and promptly answered my many questions. For a first time buyer to a seasoned homeowner, I would recommend Fritz helping put you in your next home.

Terry Hardesty

Erika Stewart was a great agent in providing the help we needed in searching for a house.

She was excellent in her profession. She would be my first choice as an agent with Great Personality!!

Marlene Little (Retired School Teacher)

Robin was the agent for my wife and I before we even moved to Norfolk area.

She did an amazing job making us feel confident in the houses we were interested in by giving her professional knowledge on the areas. Robin worked tirelessly to make sure we ultimately worked out a deal in the end and we’re completely taken care of before moving in. Highest recommendation I can give. Thanks again Robin, Grace and Max

Matthew Morse (Buyer)

After meeting with Dever and explaining what we were looking for in a house, she hit the ground running.

She made all the arrangements to view homes that she knew we could be interested in. Dever also was able to keep us both up to date, since my husband was already in North Carolina and I was still in New York helping my mom through chemo, it was no easy task. She listened to both our needs and happily accommodated! Dever is a self-starter and hard worker. She is very personable and considerate. She is quick to respond to any questions or concerns that you may have. We would recommend Dever to any person who is looking for a real estate agent. We do not say that lightly because we believe that whoever you recommend is also a reflection on you; therefore we would never recommend someone who we have any doubt would not follow through. And that’s why we have absolutely no reservations on recommending Dever because we KNOW she will work hard, listen to your needs and make it happen! She is a breath of fresh air!

Sheila & Jim Carollo

Melinda was endlessly patient and knowledgeable.

She made navigating this home buying experience both seamless and stress free for me, a first time home buyer. I definitely recommend giving her a call to explore your options!

Kaitlyn Farrell Rivas

Awesome experience from start to finish!

Professional, engaging and extremely knowledgeable, Robin has a proven, effective plan to give your home maximum market exposure, and she provides solid recommendations to improve your home's market appeal. A testament to her effectiveness, the initial sales contract on my home was $3,000 over what it appraised at. The Best of the Best, Robin has my strongest possible recommendation!!!

John L Pagona, Jr (Captain,, US Navy (ret))

Shauna did an amazing job with helping us look for a home.

Her professionalism is amazing, crystal clear on how to go about, as well as amazingly friendly.

Ahmari Collins

We absolutely loved working with Melinda!

We started working with her three months before we met her while we were still living in Japan. She showed us houses often using video chat and even got us a video chat with a builder all before we arrived in the States. Once we were stateside, she worked tirelessly to make sure we were able to see as many homes as possible and introduced us to South Mills, NC where we built our home. We now consider Melinda a great friend and would highly recommend her if your in the market for a new home or property 🤗

Dana Lewis

This is the second time we’ve used Robin as a realtor and we will continue using her for any houses we buy/sell.

She is informative and helpful. Our budgets have always been modest but we always feel like such a priority. Cannot recommend her enough!

Alana Ripley

Whether you are buying or selling Erika Stewart is the real estate agent for you!

Erika was on top of every detail throughout the whole process and she is such a wealth of knowledge! She kept us updated every step of the way and she always went the extra mile!

Very patient and helpful with my home search.

Homes I was interested in were available to show as soon as possible. Took extra steps to help me with anything I needed and made sure I was taken care of.

Hayley Niehaus

My wife and I were looking to purchase a condo.

Alicia set herself apart from all the other agents I dealt with by sending me only those homes that fit within the parameters I had outlined. She is courteous and professional and always willing to go the extra mile. She goes out of her way to make things go smoothly and she offers only sound suggestions. I really can't say enough good things about her.

Richard T. Ryan

We first met Melinda when she took time out from her Memorial Day weekend to show us the house.

Since then, she consistently went "above and beyond" to ensure our home-buying experience was a good one. Professional and dedicated, she always went the extra mile to answer our questions and address our concerns. Her work on our behalf was always on-time, thorough, and accurate, and she made the process of buying our home smoother than we thought possible (we were able to close on the home less than six weeks from seeing it the first time). Give Melinda a call for any of your real estate needs!

Steve and Terri Anderson

Melinda was extremely helpful with finding us a rental in a very short period of time.

She was always available to answer questions via email or text and worked around our busy lives when scheduling our visits to various properties. Melinda is always friendly, professional, and easy to work with because she listens to your concerns. I would definitely recommend Melinda to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a home.

Kayse Reese

Melinda was easily the most upfront and honest realtor I've ever dealt with.

From the word go she assisted me in everyway possible with not only the finding of my soon to be new property and home in Moyock, NC but also in the selling of my house in Virginia Beach. She got my house viewed, offered on and accepted in just over two weeks. She was very communicative and always kept me abreast of every situation (and there were many) and we spoke on almost a daily basis. I will be recommending her to anyone I know looking for a realtor for any reason!

Nathaniel O Martell (Happy customer)

Robin did a great job getting us the home we wanted.

She did everything possible to get us the fairest price and is willing to fight for her customers. Great agent and great person ! Highly recommend !

Donald Richardson (Executive Chef)

I had the opportunity to work with Melinda back in June.

I'm a first time home buyer and I expressed my needs and she heard everything i said. She is very knowledgable and knows how to request things from the seller to please the buyer. She is not pushy for a sale, she's very patient and loves her shows! When i look for my next forever home, i'm definitely reaching out to Melinda to assist in my journey. Thanks again Melinda, you are the best

Evelyn Chadwick (IT Manager)

Melinda was A+ from start to finish she is very passionate about her career and made things very easy for me start to finish.

I highly recommend Melinda for all your real estate needs

Derrick Daniels (Govt)

Robin was wonderful to work with!

We have bought or sold a home eight times and she is by far one of the best agents we have ever worked with. We could always reach her and she made the whole experience easy! As far as the sale went, the house sold within 24 hours full asking!! I can’t say enough good things about working with Robin! I would recommend her to anyone!!

Leah Hawker

Melinda was AMAZING!

We were gone for half of our sale and Melinda made the whole thing stress free. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better!

Zachary Zennario

When we first met Chandu, he explained that his job is more service than sales.

He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of home construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a new property Chandu would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. In the end we found the property that was perfect for us and are loving it so far. Thank you for everything Chandu!!

Kinjal Singh

Melinda was fantastic when it came to our first-time home buyer frenzy.

Being a military family, we had to look at homes from afar first, and Melinda jumped right in and gave us home viewings via video call. We appreciated her honesty about properties as they pertained to our wants and needs for a home. When it comes time to move, Melinda is on our speed dial!

Chad Wade (Home owner)

I’m pleased to recommend Erika Stewart to anyone seeking a professional, responsive and courteous Realtor in the Hampton Roads area.

She was a joy to work with, and I will request her services in my next purchase.

My husband and I were blown away by Debbie.

She was a pleasure to work with, from start and finish. She was exceptional in all aspects of the process and went above and beyond for us. Debbie was always available when needed. She was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. She made the entire experience, which potentially can be stressful at times, an absolute joy! We bought our home during a global pandemic, and was 4 hours away during the whole process. Debbie didn't hesitate to step into our shoes and represent us when needed and I trusted her explicitly. We are planning on selling our rental property next year, and I wouldn't consider using anyone but Debbie Thompson!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs.

Stewart through my neighbor. She made the home selling process seamless from listing to closing. I always appreciated her warm personality and professionalism. Thank you for being there for me while I was out of state.

Debbie was wonderful to work with!

I originally listed my home in September and received several solid offers within a couple of days. However, due to unforeseen personal circumstances, I had to remove the listing and delay the sale of my home. Debbie was very understanding, patient and maintained the same level of concern and professionalism. Throughout the delay, she reached out often to see how things were going and to offer encouragement. The house re-listed on December 8 and in less than 24 hours several offers were made. Within a couple of days I signed a contract. Debbie walked me through every step of the selling process. She explained things in a way I could easily understand, made everything simple to navigate, kept me updated on progress and was always available to answer any questions. I absolutely enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her!
