Van was instrumental to our process of moving from out of town. He was incredibly kind and capable, easily navigating both an extremely tight time window and the additional pressures associated with the current pandemic climate. He was very willing to travel for us, often showing us multiple properties in a day over FaceTime, and went the extra mile to impart his wisdom regarding an unfamiliar area to us. Purchasing a home can be very stressful, but Van found us the perfect home, shouldering all of the responsibilities in a way that made it uncomplicated. Even after closing, he has been very helpful to us with any additional needs to make our purchased house into a home

I can not speak more highly about Van as an individual as well as a realtor. He is an amazing realtor and an even better person. He genuinely cares about getting you the home you want and not just a paycheck. He was invaluable to the process of finding our "forever home". Not only did he offer a great deal of knowledge about the real estate process, but also about home construction. He provided great reliable references for any work we wanted done on the home after our close as well. He also aided in the sale of our other home. It is tough anymore to find a genuine person and he is nothing but that. He is reliable, trustworthy, and the best person we could have ever found to help us in what could have seemed like an impossible process. " The Search For the Forever Home". Words can not express how much we thank you.

We had a great experience working with Van. He was quick to respond, super patient and got us a great deal on a house. He was very very flexible in terms of showing us houses. I highly recommend him!

In looking for a home in North Carolina, we were fortunate to work with a consummate professional in Van Starling of Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby’s International Realty.

From the initial meeting via mobile, he demonstrated his listening skills and tailored our experience to benefit all parties involved throughout the ENTIRE process from initial contact through the house closing.

His organizational skills for the house showing weekend in January were on point with the list I had provided to him via email. With each and every home he showed me, he provided a variety that my family would enjoy upon moving to the area.

I would HIGHLY recommend working with Van in a relocation process locally, regionally, or internationally. He certainly listens and worked on behalf of my family to secure our forever home

Van did an amazing job selling our house! This was a tough market to sell - upper end homes with other houses also on the market in the neighborhood. He sold it at a price we wanted, and did a LOT of work to help it sell. He had open houses that were effective, did staging, and took some of the best pictures of the house for on-line that I've seen. The on-line and other marketing were impressive. Before, during and after the sale he was helpful, optimistic and delivered. Thank you Van!

Van's supportive personality and extensive knowledge provided critical guidance throughout the entire buying process. He had a sense of urgency to follow up on items. He found the time to not only help me find the right house, but was there for home inspections, builder walkthroughs, closing, and even picked up the keys after closing. Van also provided excellent contractor contacts that have worked out very well. He truly cared about me as a client.

We had a great experience working with Van! He was very knowledgeable about our market and gave much appreciated guidance regarding the listing price, timing, and the entire home sale process overall. This was our first experience selling a home, and Van was extremely helpful and made it smooth and painless. He was in constant contact with us throughout the length of the process, making us confident that we were in good hands! I would definitely select Van for any future real estate dealings and would recommend him to anyone looking for a hands on realtor!

Van was a pleasure to work with. Very prompt and professional throughout the process and our house sold within a week of our listing. We'd certainly recommend Van to anyone interested in buying or selling a home

Van was a terrific realtor and I would certainly use his services again. One of the most important purchases of my life and he made the process so easy. Very informative and an excellent negotiator. I got the house I wanted in a supurb area of town, and within the price range I was looking for. Thanks Van, it was a great experience all around.

Van represented me in listing my home, helping me price it competitively and showing it in a very professional manner. However, circumstances changed and we decided not to sell. I would certainly choose to use him again.
