"I would like to thank you & John very much for helping us buy our house in Cary. We really appreciate all that you have done for us. John, I admire your calmness during closing I can't say the same for me, I have such intolerance for people that don't do their jobs! We would love for you guys to come over once we get settled.Susan, Michael and girls! (The Trosters) - Buyers - Cary, NC
"Thank you for handling the sale of 100 Ravenstone. You and your team helped bring this to closure despite a challenging buyer’s agent and a closing attorney (chosen by the buyers) who appeared to be disorganized and forgetful. It was nice to have you on our side from the point we decided to sell, through renovation of the property, listing, inspection and final sale. Throughout it all we felt confident you had our best interests in mind. You have a terrific team. A heartfelt THANK YOU to Laura (client care manager) for her steady hand, calming attitude and always upbeat telephone presence & for helping to bring the sale of our home to closure. Through all the challenges Laura was quick to get answers to our questions and she met all of the challenges thrown at her with amazing grace and courtesy. Thank you for a job very well done. We intend to continue using your team as long as we have property in Cary, NC!"

"What can we say about The Dukes Team other than they are true professionals in their field. Knowing that the housing market is not in the best of shape right now, my wife and I just knew we would sit on this sale for months. Far from the truth!!! The Dukes Team were introduced to us as being the best, and they lived up to it in every aspect of the transaction. They came in and worked their magic, and within five weeks even before we could have an open house we were under contract and sold shortly there after. So if you are looking for true professionals, look no further than The Dukes Team!!!"
Nathan & Mayra Lewis - Sellers - Durham, NC
"Carrie, I just wanted to say thanks for everything you did for us during this whole process. I am very happy with the house and I am SO glad we went back to it and put in another offer. I think it is the right house for us and the kids love it:) Thanks for sticking it out and putting up with my inability to make up my mind (lol). I am positive we made the right choice:) Anyway, thanks again and tell John we said thank you as well. If I come across anyone who is buying or selling their home, I will definately pass on your card. Thanks!"
Jennifer Postreich - Buyer - Holly Springs, NC
"I wanted to once again thank you for being the best Realtor we could have asked for to help us navigate through the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. Without you I truly don’t know how we would have made it through the unexpected surprises that are inevitable during such a process. I still can’t believe that in such an unpredictable market when we are surrounded by news on how houses aren’t selling and values are at an all time low, that you were able to have our house under contract in 26 days! Given that we were expecting such a long process, having an offer on the 3rd showing was unbelievable. I truly believe if not for your marketing and attention to detail our story would have been quite different. Without the website, the colorful flyers, and your constant attention to detail, I am sure we never would have been able to sell so quickly and turn around and purchase our new home. The house we were able to purchase fit every one of our needs for our new living condition and we needed this to go through. The stars and the moon aligned perfectly for this entire process and getting us into this home. I believe it was part divine intervention and part Carrie Dukes! I will forever be grateful for all your hard work and dedication during this entire process. You will forever be my most favorite Realtor. Thank you again, we couldn’t have done it without you!"
Monica and Adam Foster - Buyers & Sellers - Holly Springs, NC
"John Dukes, You will never know how much of a blessing you truly are! Thanks for being such a great help. You value ALL of your clients, whether we are looking for a multi-million dollar home or looking to spend $150,000. Thanks for making us feel special. You're truly the BEST!"
Rhonda & Neshia Tatum - Buyers - Raleigh, NC
“I just wanted to say again, THANK YOU!! With everything that got thrown our way (buying new construction from a builder), I am so grateful that you were there to take care of everything and that you were always in our corner. I don’t think I would have come out of this with most of my wits in tact if you were not with us. I will forever be grateful to you and will always tell the scary tale of our closing with the caveat that if not for Carrie I don’t know what we would do…she was fabulous! I wish you easier closings and fabulous clients. I realized through this that I could never do your job and it is a credit to you and your professionalism that you handled everything with patience, understanding and grace. You are a great Realtor! Take care & I gave your contact information to some friends of ours who have been trying to sell their home, unsuccessfully. Good luck!”
Monica & Adam Foster - Buyers & Sellers - Holly Springs, NC
"Dear Carrie, So, here we are in the new house since Wednesday, a whole 5 days and we've loved every second. The house is wonderful. Having been in our previous home for almost 37 years, selling, buying, and moving was a foreign process to us. In part, I am writing to tell you we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. Our purchase in Cary, facilitated by you, went on without a hitch. Your attention to detail and patience with us was invaluable. You responded to my MANY, MANY questions with a smile. Also, John provided guidance and knowledge in so many areas. His involvement in the inspection was greatly appreciated. We found his knowledge in various subjects of home construction helpful. We love being close to our children, grandchildren, sisters, and brothers. We get to see them so much more and a spontaneous visit to or from any of them has already happened. This is exactly what we/they wanted.
Please feel free to share this with any of your clients.
Simply, thank you for what you have done for us and our family. We look forward to the next phase of our lives. And the weather is great too!"
Lewis & Carol Lokitz - Buyers - Cary, NC
"We listed our house with John & Carrie Dukes and we couldn't be happier!! It sold for asking price after two days on the market and Carrie & John negotiated a lease-back for 2 months while our new home was being completed. The results speak for themselves!! Thank You"
Bryan & Dara Meyer - Sellers - Cary, NC
"John, I just wanted to thank you for all of your help during our move back to NC. Coming from Chicago, our expectations were quite different than what the local market was offering. However, you were able to find us the right home. More important than finding the right house, you helped us get it at the right price. Few real estate agents would have suggested that we consider walking away from our offer after $1,400 in additional costs (small compared to the overall cost of the home) magically appeared right before we signed our contract. Not only did you suggest the possibility of walking away, but you pled our case, which resulted in the builder absorbing that last minute cost. Thanks for encouraging us to stick to our original offer, even though it could have cost you a timely commission. You are truly a rarity in this industry. This may or may not have been the smoothest or easiest transaction for you, but none of the horror stories I have heard about home buying applied as this was as painless as I could have imagined. I assume much of that was due to your diligent efforts. Additionally, closing in less than 23 days from the time of contract helped save us an additional month in costly temporary housing. Thanks again for all of your hard work."
Todd and Jaclyn Young - Buyers - Cary, NC
"I have known and worked with John & Carrie Dukes for about 5+ years. They are not the typical real estate agents. They are hard working, honest, skilled and very knowledgeable of the industry and the local market conditions. They take GREAT care of their clients, and will go above and beyond the extra mile to find the right home for you. With the resources they have available with Coldwell Banker Advantage, they have access to excellent marketing resources for listing homes as well."
Linda Shirley - BB&T - Vice President - Residential Construction Specialist
"I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to John & Carrie Dukes of Coldwell Banker Advantage. I've been working with them to purchase a home in the Triangle area of North Carolina. I have been absolutely nothing but impressed with the service they have provided me. After having much difficulty finding a property that met my needs in our price point the Dukes got us narrowed down to the perfect house. Then, for reasons outside of their control, it fell through...twice. I was more than disappointed, but they continued to move me forward to earn my business. We looked at houses for days, finding nothing that met our interests and still disappointed that the original house fell through. When I was ready to give up, Carrie helped me step outside the box and found us the best group of houses we had viewed yet!! We made an offer, struggled with uncooperative sellers and less than professional Realtors only to find ourselves in the same situation feeling like the deal was not going to work again. The Dukes once again stepped up and made something out of nothing. They have served me from start to finish with only my best interests in mind. I have talked with several other Realtors, both recently and in the past, never have I worked with someone with the professional service, knowledge, connections, and strong negotiation skills that I experienced with the Dukes. I'm so truly impressed with the service they provided for me, not only will I be doing business with them again, I will recommend them to family, friends, coworkers, clients, and strangers. Thank you so much again John & Carrie"

"I have worked with John and Carrie for the past 9 years. I not only enjoy working with them to help their buyers obtain the best financing, I also have used them for my personal homes. They have helped me with listings and they have represented me on the buyer's side. They are true experts at real estate and I would highly recommend them!"
