Highly recommend Lee Locke! I was in the market for renting and they convinced me to buy a house instead. I bought my first house with the help of Lee Locke. The service that Lee and his wife provided was outstanding! They stay up countless nights and help you out in any way possible. I bought my house within a week of looking with the help of Lee Locke. I would rate them 11/10 if I could. Especially, if you're new to house buying/renting also a great help for those who are in the military as well. David Nunez | Buyer | Jacksonville, NC
Lee was always available when we would call to look at a house we wanted to see. Always! Lee and his wife Traci went over all the paperwork with us page by page and made the purchase of our 'new' home real easy! Paul White | Buyer | Jacksonville, NC
My wife and I were shopping for a new home from out of the area. After having some scheduling issues with other realtors we found Lee and Traci and they were awesome and very experienced with the needs of our out of town shoppers. They did a fabulous job ensuring our needs were represented and helped catch things for us during the closing process. After closing their services didn't stop there. They provided contractor recommendations and helped them get access to the property as we had not moved to the area yet. It was truly nice to feel like they weren't just chasing a commission but really intent on making sure we were happy. Great team to have in your corner! Melina & Robert Mattison | Buyer | North Carolina
We were out-of-state buyers at the start of COVID, and our purchase was dependent on the sale of our home, which kept getting pushed back months due to courts being closed. Lee and Traci were absolutely phenomenal during the whole process! I can't stress enough what finding the right realtors can do for your stress levels! Traci especially was wonderful in talking me off the ledge when things got hectic on our end! If we ever buy another home they will be the only people we call! They were prompt. Answered our questions, and gave us advice, it was comforting knowing we had someone we could trust. Daniel & Jesse Carter | Buyers | Jacksonville, NC
We knew we wanted to move out of state and eastern North Carolina was the perfect fit! We just needed a Realtor! Zillow suggested Lee & his wife Traci, and from the first phone call, we knew it was a perfect fit! Lee took the time to FaceTime us about the potential properties since we were out of state. We found the right one with his and Traci's help! We made an offer right away! Covid slowed things down on the sale of our home in Tennessee and they stuck by us and helped us out any way they could with the one here! While in the contract there was a tornado that had hit the town, and Lee went out and did a walk thru for us to make sure there was no damage, even sending me pictures. The effort they both put into our home was unmatched! I got to know Traci and we talk often! They always check on us to see how we are adjusting to eastern North Carolina life! If we find ourselves moving, we will absolutely use Lee and Traci again! They make the best team and compliment each other so very well and that's so hard to find these days! They handled everything that came up on our end! Made the process so simple even during a pandemic! I will always recommend Lee & Traci Locke! The Carter's | Buyer | Pollocksville, NC
Lee Locke is one of the most professional, prompt, and knowledgeable agents I have ever worked with. He worked tirelessly for us when we were buying our home. He looks out for the best interest of his clients without fail. He went above and beyond what he was required to do many times over. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
