Sandy helped us from the beginning to the end of the process. She only sent us and had us see homes that were in our guidelines (
traditional floor plan and pricing ). She guided us thru the entire process ( offer, contract, inspection, lender, lawyer, closing, etc ) and did an
excellent job based on her knowledge and experience and was always available. She also assisted us with the changeover of the utilities as well as the
names of vendors for different jobs. She is a professional and personable agent and we consider her a very good friend.

Our experience with Sandy LaRue was superb from top to bottom. Sandy is extremely knowledgeable about the Corolla (and surrounding
areas) market and she worked closely with us to understand our needs and priorities. Sandy showed us houses that closely matched our criteria and was
there every step of the way through the offer and negotiation process. We ended up getting the perfect house for our family. Even after the deal was
done Sandy continued to go above and beyond for us -- offering help and advice with our move, utilities set up, etc. Sandy didn't only become our
trusted advisor through this home buying process; she also became our friend. We trust Sandy implicitly and highly recommend her to anyone thinking
about buying or selling a home in OBX.

I cannot express in words how much Sandy helped me through the process of selling my home. I lived on the outer banks for years where
I lived in my home. When I took a job in another state I needed to sell my home. The market dropped and I went from a man that should of made a nice
profit on his home to being classified as a foreclosure. I used other Realtor's in the area and no one gave me the attention or service like Sandy.
She personally walked me through the short-sale process, negotiated with my bank, spoke on my behalf, and saw the whole process through. She did not
have to do all of these things. In fact most Realtor would not have been willing to help me through that process. Sandy did and I am eternally
grateful. Its not often you can find a Realtor that sells premier property's one day then is willing to help a man short-sale his home the next. I
could not have done this without her help.
Sandy LaRue is a wonderful person! She currently has a house listed to sell for us. We could not be more pleased with the amount of
time she has spent on our behalf advertising and marketing this property. She is professional and very knowledgeable about the area! We would highly
recommend Sandy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home!

Sandy was very patient when helping us find a new home. She is extremely knowledgeable in the Corolla & Duck areas of the Outer Banks.
Her flexibility and willingness to me at any time made it easy to react to opportunities in the market. We would definitely recommend her to any home

Buying a home with Sandy was not only fun but extremely easy. Being a first time home buyer I had tons of questions and little
knowledge about anything regarding buying a house. Sandy was easily able to explain to me every step of the process and went above and beyond when it
came to finding the right mortgage broker, scheduling inspections and getting us in touch with our closing attorney. She was always overprepared for
every step of the way, was extremely accessible to us and was very hands on with every part of the home buying process. She still keeps in contact to
make sure we are happy with our home and that everything is going great. I cannot recommend her enough!

Sandy is incredibly versed in the whole area of corolla and Duck. She is passionate about helping people realize their dreams of beach
living. I spent over a year working with her and she was amazing. Easy to work with, very very positive and enthusiastic, and extremely thorough. Her
follow up is amazing. She helped us go from purchasing a lot, to help us with the building of a new house. It was a very very long and complicated
process, but she was there every step of the way. I cant say enough about her and her family who support her work.

We were from out of state with no idea of the local housing market. We had a business card we picked up while on vacation 1 year prior
& called Sandy. Wow what a great thing we did. Sandy started sending us e-mails of available properties after viewing quite a few we made arrangements
to see them for ourselves. When we arrived Sandy had a list of 12 or 13 houses for us to visit. The first one we looked at is the one we purchased.
Sandy's knowledge of the outer banks was so helpful in our deciding to purchase on the outer banks. We purchased a short sale house & the process was
long & drawn out with a few stressful points for us but not for Sandy she was positive the whole way thru A TRUE PROFESSIONAL Thanks Sandy.

Dealing with Sandy during our house search was a great experience. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding the Outer Banks and Corolla
in particular. She has a great love of the area and works to insure that her customers will come to love and enjoy the area the area as much as she
does. She listens to what the customers needs and expectations are and does her best to match a property to those expectations. Sandy does not stop
once the sale is complete. She was there to acquaint us with the area and had many great recommendations for us regarding local services and
maintenance needs. She continues to keep us updated on what is happening in our development and the Outer Banks.
I would recommend her services to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home in the Outer Banks.

My husband and I had a positive and productive real estate experience with Sandy LaRue. She listened to all of our wish list requests
during the hunt for our second home and was honest in pointing out both the positive and negative aspects of various properties. Living out of state,
our time was limited. The property that we bought underwent quite a bit of renovation and Sandy was there for us to inspect all aspects of the work.
Not only does she have strong knowledge of the Outer Banks, she is also well versed in rental properties.
