What our clients have to say…
Tracy is a very knowledgeable and caring individual. She carefully listens to her clients to help them find what they are looking for. My wife and I could not be happier than with the help she gave us in the entire process. No question went without her giving or finding the answer if she did not know. She was not only our agent, but also became our friend. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell property. ~R. Carter
I strongly recommend Tracy Swanson as any prospective home buyer’s real estate agent for the Southport-Oak Island area. Tracy paid close attention to details, listened carefully to us and was very responsive to our questions and needs. Tracy provided sound advice to us and clearly demonstrated that she always had our best interest in mind.
Tracy is a very honest woman and we consider her a blessing. She is not only our real estate agent, but she has become our friend. Tracy brings great credit to the real estate profession. ~M. Waldecker
Tracy looked out for us just like we were family (the kind of family that you like!). She did not hesitate to give us her best advice, even if it made things harder for her. We could not be happier our purchase, or working with Tracy! ~J. McClarren
Tracy did a wonderful job selling my house. She is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, dependable and a hard worker when it comes to finding buyers for property. She is very diligent and I highly recommend her as an agent who would lookout for your best interests in selling or buying your home. ~D.L. B Gross
Tracy Swanson was a pleasure to work with and a true professional with a wealth of valuable experience to offer even the experienced home buyer. We were continually impressed by her responsiveness, helpful insights and prompt follow-through on questions we had and issues that arose throughout the process. Tracy is well connected throughout the county and was even recommended to us by another realtor outside the county.
Our home had been on the market with very few showings and after we signed on with Tracy we were had more showings in 1 month than we did in the previous 6 months. Tracy helped to make the selling of our home much smoother than we had anticipated. We highly recommend Tracy Swanson for selling or buying of a home in Brunswick Co., you will not be disappointed. ~L. and S. Jee
Tracy Swanson worked tirelessly in selling our Oak Island beach house. She was far more creative in attracting prospective buyers to view our house than other agents had been in the past. Tracy was very personable, professional, and knowledgeable, and we’re glad we switched to Swanson Realty for sale of our house. ~J. and L. Hoots
Caryl Hudson did a great job for us. We were in town for a short visit and Caryl devoted more time than she had probably planned. Always very patient and not pushy. ~J. Plent
Tracy was a great agent to work with. She clearly paid attention when we described what we were looking for. She was always conscious of our time, and had patience walking us through the process. Tracy always made sure we understood what was happening and the pros and cons of our various options. She put us in touch with the local professionals we needed, and in many ways helped make the transaction possible. We can’t say enough about her enthusiasm, professionalism and helpfulness. ~David B.
Tracy came highly recommended and she did not disappoint! She is extremely personable, organized, knowledgeable and thorough. She was able to meet with us on short notice and provided us with all of the details we needed to make an informed decision on an investment property. Tracy was always there when we needed, responded to our questions immediately and went the extra mile to help us, which made the whole process exceptionally easy, especially since we live several hours away. As a realtor myself, I was thrilled to have a professional like Tracy as our realtor as she embodies all of the attributes one would hope for in a realtor. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Tracy to any of my friends or family looking to purchase a home in the Southport area. ~K. and M. Thompson
Josh Roth made my first home purchase an ease! His professionalism, knowledge of the current market, and endless work ethic made navigation through this process exceptional! He truly goes above and beyond the responsibilities of an agent, and for that I am so grateful! I have referred Josh to my family members, whom have also had successful real estate transactions with Josh’s guidance and assistance. It was a pleasure to work with Swanson Reality and I would recommend Josh Roth to anyone! ~J. Whitesell
From start to finish, it was such a pleasure working with Tracy when I purchased by second home on Oak Island! Since I live out of state, I really needed someone who could be my “eyes and ears” locally. Tracy stayed in constant contact, even after hours and on weekends, which was often the only time I had available to talk or respond to messages. Whenever a problem arose, she helped us work through it, reaching out to the selling agent, the bank, the insurance agent, and the builder when necessary to negotiate or get additional information. Throughout the process, she went above and beyond, and I can honestly say I’ve never worked with a realtor who was as helpful and customer-oriented. Thank you, Tracy!! ~P. Schumacher
Tracy Swanson represented our family in both buying and selling in the past 9 months. Both experiences were exceptional and we would recommend her highly to all potential clients.
She truly takes into account the best interest of her clients, no matter what! ~S. & J. Baker
Tracy was referred to us by chance, through a man in passing, which had recently purchased a beach home with her help. We couldn’t have been luckier to run across him that day.
Throughout the past 3 plus years, she’s been with us every step of the way. In that amount of time, you can imagine the extent of her patience. She was extremely accommodating, even if we needed to schedule a very last minute viewing. We never felt the pressure to buy just because it was a good deal or a great location. Tracy took into account all of our expectations and opinions and really had our best interest at heart.
Whether it was via phone, text, email, or in person, she made sure she was available. As first time beach home buyers, you can imagine we had many questions. We always received thorough and prompt responses. Even though Tracy was extremely professional, she made everything easy. It was more like looking at houses with a friend rather than a realtor.
Even after closing, she showed us the ropes as new residents of Oak Island, took us to the town hall, and helped get all of our things in order. I can’t say enough about her and our wonderful experience buying our dream vacation home. She came highly recommended to us and we definitely know why. We will never hesitate to pass along the good will and recommend her to others. If we had not been given her name, we’d still think that owning a beach house was just something to dream about. ~P. Reich
Caryl Hudson sold our house two weeks!! ~P. Brick
Tracy went above and beyond to find us what we were looking for. I would recommend her highly. ~M. Ridgeway
Our buyers agent Caryl Hudson worked tirelessly over a very long period to find us the resale that worked for our lifestyle. She previewed our home on our behalf prior to my coming down to see it for myself and wasted no time in closing the deal for us, after we made our offer. Couldn’t have gone smoother.
Thank you Caryl for you patience. ~S. & R. Lochner
Tracy Swanson is the VERY BEST realtor you’ll find!! I have dealt with Tracy on several occasions and she is nothing but a professional. She works extremely hard for you, honest, tells it like it is no sugar coating. Right from the start she is right there with you to the closing making the experience painless.
We live in a gated community and Tracy makes sure perspective buyers know everything from the HOA Rules to ARC Guides Lines all that one would need to know and understand about living in a Gated HOA Community.
I would use Tracy Swanson again I trust her completely she has guided me to make the right decisions in selling my house. ~J. Barry
It is very stressful selling a house let alone your parents house when you live in another state. Caryl Hudson made it easy! She helped with everything! From the landscape, the inside of the house, to the estate sale! Thank you Swanson Reality and a big thank you to Caryl! ~D. Nuttall
Tracy showed tons of patience with us and she was very energetic. She made sure we had all the information we needed. We could call, text, or email her anytime and she would reply quickly to us. She had lots of energy. Mostly, she is a kind soul. She personally showed me where our closing would be and where the water department was. Even after I told her she didn’t have to. I would highly recommend her. She makes buying a home a great, relaxed experience. ~L. Bender
After half-heartedly looking for property in the summer of 2015 for purchase in 2017, I wanted a realtor who would look out for me without the high pressure sales tactics so common today. I was most fortunate in choosing Tracy Swanson! A once-in-a-lifetime deal became available in spring of 2016, and on Tracy’s recommendation I made the trip from Maryland to North Carolina, saw the house, liked it, and bought it in less than a week! Being hundreds of miles away with no local knowledge, I was dependent on Tracy for advice on repairmen, mortgage lenders, attorneys, and to work with my Maryland realtor. In the midst of all this paperwork, a family emergency occurred which prevented me from holding up my end as diligently as necessary. No problem…Tracy to the rescue. Tracy hired, supervised, then paid for services out of her own pocket until I could reimburse her, going over and beyond what any realtor should be expected to do! If you want it done right, tell the Marines, because Tracy will always have your back. Semper Fi, Tracy, and thanks for everything! ~B. Dolle
Tracy Swanson is by far the greatest realtor on earth but that is only the beginning. Tracy is the person who makes everything okay. If all transactions were handled by a person like Tracy the world would be a much much better place. My purchase with Tracy in Wilmington went so smoothly. She was there for everything and made sure all the loose ends were tied up and made my move almost painless. The sale of my home in another area of the state however, was a nightmare. Tracy helped me weather that storm by standing by me and giving me positive words of encouragement and somehow that became finalized. Working both of these transactions simultaneously allowed me in real time to compare similar transactions – one with realtors with no integrity whatsoever, who wrote a contract full of lies to have the whole thing fall apart exposing them for what they are – and another with a realtor (Tracy) with integrity as her core value. If you are buying or selling a home the best advise I can offer is to contract Ms. Swanson. You will most likely feel you are her only client – because that is how she always made me feel.
This girl is the real deal and she will undoubtedly be someone you will be recommending to friends and strangers alike and will always remember for your future real estate transactions. ~C. Kearney
Tracy is a top notch Realtor! Since my wife and I met her for our first showing we knew we had the right person to help us find out perfect spot. After relocating from NY she did everything to educate, and point us in the right direction. She made the transition easy for us and that is all we could ask for. When we look for our beach property she will be the person we call. ~J. Burch
Over the last three years, Tracy handled and assisted us with the sales and transfers of one house on Caswell Beach and three lots in the River Run Plantation. Wendy and I very much appreciate Tracy’s professionalism, knowledge and determination in all four transactions.
This Marine knows her stuff and has our highest recommendation and appreciation. ~G. Solms, President, Southeastern Regional Business Brokers, Asheville, NC
If you are looking for a realtor look no further. Tracy Swanson was amazing helping navigate the sell of our home on Oak Island. She is very professional and knowledgeable in her field. She has a true passion for what she does and she is very dedicated to her clients. On multiple occasions, Tracy would call or text me afterhours to give me updates or just to take the time to reassure me everything was going good. I couldn’t have asked for anyone to have done a better job and would recommend Tracy to anyone that is looking for a realtor. ~J. Jensen
We were very pleased with Tracy’s handling of the sale of our beach house at Oak Island. She was pleasant and professional and kept us informed throughout the process. We highly recommend Tracy for all your real estate needs. ~C. Vuncannon
Working with Tracy was by far the most enjoyable part of the experience we had selling our beloved vacation home in Brunswick County. She worked tirelessly on our behalf, taking to heart any and all of our suggestions and frustrations during the process. In the end, she sold the house in the time frame she gave us at the onset of the process and she was a delight to work with throughout. We would definitely sign on with Tracy and Swanson Realty again. ~R. Hicks and L. Shipley
Tracy Swanson is the best real estate professional we’ve ever dealt with and we’ve owned 14 houses over the years. She knows this market exceptionally well. But more importantly, she goes out of her way to help the buyer understand the market, navigate the selection process and, most importantly, do the things needed to close the sale, from making the correct offer to having the keys turned over on closing day. Authentic and real, she is a joy to work with! ~M. D. Smith
One of the best decisions we made was working with Swanson Realty. Tracy was our agent and she was very responsive to our questions, many times outside of her normal working hours. She was also very patient with us, working really hard to help us find the home that was right for us. I valued her honesty as we worked through the pros and cons of each property we looked at and we looked at a lot! I am excited to say we now own a beach house and have a new friend also! ~R. and B. Campbell
Tracy has proven to be my favorite realtor of all time. That is significant seeing that we have purchased and sold 15 houses in our lifetime. We have experience working with lots of agents. She is the most genuine, hardworking, knowledgeable , trustworthy , upbeat and positive, respectful, fun, and honest person to work with. She has a keen sense of the personalities involved in the transaction and is able to synthesize and analyse what is needed to make the things work in a positive way, and to get things done…. All without being pushy or demanding and respecting those involved. The house that she brokered for us was not a typical everyday sale , nor was it a big and expensive one. She worked tirelessly . I am confident that had we had a different realtor the sale probably would not have happened . And if it had, we would have experienced a lot more grief… She made a difficult situation go as smoothly as possible. It is also noteworthy that she found the right house for us even before we realized it . We were looking in different areas and when we did not find what we wanted she guided us to what ended up being the right fit. I Would recommend Tracy with 100% confidence . I truly hope that Tracy remains in my husband and my circle of friends… She is the real deal! ~J. Smith
