We have had the pleasure of working with Billie Ann Figura for several years. As out of state owners Billie Ann was instrumental with her expertise and knowledge in selling both of our properties is South Carolina. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

I have had the pleasure of working with Billie Ann and Welcome Home Realty for over 10 years now. I am a military member who purchased a property when I thought I was getting out. I chose to stay in and learned quickly that I needed expert help to manage the property as I got stationed all over the world.

Billie Ann and her team have truly proven themselves to be a critical part of my real estate investment strategy. With their guidance, I have grown my business and most importantly protected my investments with the help of their balanced approach to owner/tenant engagement.

Its obvious to me they are both parents and invested members of the community I grew up in. I appreciate their compassion and pragmatic approach to unexpected events in my tenants lives, while at the same time enforcing each detail of the rental agreement they’ve committed to.

One of the things I really expect of a property manager is to demonstrate a return on the % of my rents they are getting. Welcome Home does that in several ways. The obvious ones are marketing, screening, and interviewing possible tenants. Something I dint expect but have come to appreciate about Welcome Home is the value their extensive rolodex of contractors bring to the table. They do enough business with the contractors that I regularly get better prices than if I were to try and hire the contractor myself. This obviously doesn’t offset the cost of hiring a property manager, but it certainly helps.

Finally, and I think most importantly, Billie Ann and her team are just good down to earth people that feel like friends or members of the family. They know my family by name, they touch base on holidays, they give it to me straight when I need to hear something, and they back me off a rash decision if I haven’t thought about it enough. Their deep experience in the industry and community and impossible to replace and their character and integrity make it easy to trust them to represent me when I’m on the other side of the globe.

If you’re in the market for a real estate professional, you’ve found one of the best our area has to offer.

I had the most pleasant and PAINFREE experience in our sale.
Cheryl Dieppa sold our property within less than 7 days after I listed it with her!!
Cheryl also made sure that my wife and I were not inconvenienced in any way.
Aside from the meeting with the lawyer to sign paperwork,(one in which Cheryl attended to ensure we had no difficulties),my wife and I had no involvement in the process.
Easily the best experience we have ever had in a property transaction.
I HIGHLY recommend Cheryl Dieppa and Welcome Home Realty.
Sincerely happy

Chiara Hansen is fantastic! She was willing to work with us while we were in Ohio to help us find our new home at the beach! She hustles to get the job done! She has made this move from out of state soooo much easier! Highly recommend Chiara for all your home needs!

We worked with Chiara Hansen and she was wonderful. She stayed in constant contact with us and was very helpful throughout the entire process.

I had the pleasure of working with Chiara. She was super helpful as I was house hunting from Pennsylvania and then finished the process while I was visiting Germany. She always answered all my questions and concerns promptly. She also continues to check in on me after I closed and moved in. I would absolutely recommend and utilize her again. Thank you so much.

Rachel Potter was outstanding in helping us find a place we love in Southport, NC. Searching while we were still in Michigan was a real challenge but her constant communication and feedback made the process seamless. Even after our offer was accepted, the buyer put forth some challenging issues, but Rachel took the lead every step of the way to make sure that we had a positive experience. We can’t recommend Rachel enough. – Greg Patterson
