Testimonial Reviews

“I've worked with Hugh for several years and can highly recommend. He's a pro in every facet. We've bought and sold a number of homes together. Hugh has provided input and advice at every step and, with his help we've worked through difficult situations and clients. We will continue to work together going forward.”

— Ed and Jen, Raleigh

We got the highest price our neighborhood has ever seen and could not have done it without Grist Realty.
— Aaron and Sheila, Knightdale

“We first started working with Hugh while we were still living out of state. He was extremely prompt in responding and when we flew in to look at houses he had lined up a bunch to show us. We did not find a house on that trip but Hugh continued to work with us after we moved here until we found a  house in a neighborhood we absolutely love! Hugh was extremely knowledgeable. He even brought flight patterns to one location because of its proximity to the airport, something as first time homebuyers we never would have thought of. But he was also insistent on us doing our own homework as well. Checking out the local schools driving through the neighborhoods to look for amenities. He really wants to find you the home that fits you. We are so fortunate to have had him during our first home buying experience. A year later and we still some times reach out to him with random questions and he is always there.”

— Joe and EriN, Raleigh

“Hugh is very responsive and patient. With it being our first home, we had a lot of questions on process and rules. He took the time to answer all our calls and emails. Looking back, I can't imagine NOT having him as our realtor to calm our nerves. We couldn't be happier with the house we found!”

— Steve and Stefanie, Benson

Our inspections uncovered some major issues and we thought we might have to walk away from deposit money, but Hugh managed our repair requests like a pro and we closed on schedule.

“Hugh was excellent to work with - he's very knowledgeable, honest, respectful and attentive. He was able to answer all of my questions. He got me top dollar for my home sale and was able to negotiate some things the new home purchase that I may not have otherwise thought of, or even considered. Top notch - highly rated professional! I'd def refer him to my friends and family!”

— Craig, Raleigh

Great purchase! Could not be happier. Hugh went above and beyond our expectations to help us get the best deal possible is this crazy seller’s market! Knowledgeable, polite and great communicator. Thanks!
— Cynthia, Raleigh

“Hugh was great to work with. He took time to understand what we were looking for in a home and showed us numerous houses within our desired area and price range that matched the criteria. Throughout the process, Hugh was available to answer any and all questions with an almost instant response  time. He was through in describing each step of the process, and he made sure we understood everything before moving forward. I have already recommended Hugh to friends who are searching for a new home and will continue to do so. Should we find ourselves looking for a new house in the future, our first step will be to reach out to Hugh.”

— Mark and Cody, Raleigh

Hugh and I looked at many homes before we found the one that best fit me. He gave straight forward advice, he has been professional, knowledgeable, and made my first time home buying experience an enjoyable one.
— Julia, Durham
