Roger Pettingell and his efficient team repeatedly demonstrated to my husband and myself that we made the right choice when we listed our barrier island home with him. Initial pricing analysis and online marketing were spot on, and the presentation of this unique property to a wide range of diverse prospective buyers was both focused and thorough.


“After the contract came in, Roger Pettingell knowledgeably and good-naturedly steered us along the path to closing, while concurrently advising us on how to succeed in purchasing our next home in a frenzied sellers’ market. Add in a third challenge—these simultaneous transactions were orchestrated over end-of-year holidays during a COVID-19 resurgence. All in all, a skillfully executed hat trick!”
