Testimonials

We are so grateful to have found and worked with Waypost Realty. On short notice, we found we needed to move from Maryland to the Wilmington, NC area, but COVID concerns and the distance presented a problem finding the right community, the right house, for the right price. Lu Ann Haygood, supported by others at the firm, was wonderful. She filled us in on different communities in the area, conducted countless virtual walkthroughs for us, negotiated a good deal for us and handled all details & arrangements for closing, keeping us apprised of status all along the way -- all without our leaving Maryland. No question and no request was too crazy for her. We love our new house & have Lu Ann to thank for it!

Cheryl was kind, considerate and extremely professional. She took time to reassure us and make the entire process easy. We had unusual healthproblems and she stepped in to make things flow. She worked closely with our buyer, Dan Haygood, and we were treated like royalty. I have recommended them to others.
Louise W.
My experience with waypost was top notch. We was extremely happy to work with Monic. She was patient with us as we were trying to figure out wich house was for us. And she never complained about our constant changing of our minds alot. I would recommend waypost to anyone meet.

THE MOST PERSONALIZED AND PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I HAVE PURCHASED REAL ESTATE IN PENNSYLVANIA, NEW JERSEY, ARIZONA , AND FLORIDA AVER THE LAST FIFTY YEARS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THE BUDDY BLAKE AGENCY.
Timothy M.
Buddy is a true professional who worked diligently with us to meet our housing needs. He was attentive and proactive throughout the home selling and buying process (we used him for both), and I would highly recommend his services.

Talk about a spiritual gift - let me tell you about a gentleman named Dan Haygood and my first telephone call to Buddy Blake's agency - I told Dan that I wanted a Christian agent and the Lord surly sent him to my husband and me.  The word of God says there are ministering angels on earth and this man (Dan) truly was an angel to us.  I love the word "diligent" and this is a gift Dan had with two crazy people like us.  This is the scripture I gave to Dan the first time I spoke to him:  Jer. 33:3 - "Call to me and I will show you great and mighty things."  Dan is a man of that word.
John Wurtz
Dan was very good and we were blessed to have him on our side during this process. Plus we found your company from the support you give to life 90.5 fm.

Cheryl was extremely professional and attended to our every need. She made the whole process easy for us to navigate. I would highly recommend her and the Waypost Reality team to anyone who is planning to sell or purchase a home.
Kenneth H.
Amber was amazing! She was super flexible, and drove an hour away to assist me with finding my home. She provided recommendations and guidance to make the process easier for a first-time buyer. I would absolutely recommend her to others.

We researched realtors in Wilmington and narrowed it down to two. Ultimately, we decided on Buddy Blake because within four hours they sent several listings that met or exceeded what we were searching for. Amber was constantly communicating regarding homes, aspects of different areas, and information regarding various characteristics of the homes she was sending. The house that we fell in love with on a virtual walk through, and were planning on touring in person two days later, had three additional offers on it before we could even tour in person. Without Amber’s walk through and detail oriented review of the home with us, we wouldn’t have felt comfortable putting an offer in. With this being our first home purchase, Amber played a key role in providing tips on the whole process. We definitely would recommend Amber to anyone looking for a Realtor in the Wilmington area!
Greg L.
Julia Johnson was godsend. As you can imagine, when buying a house, there are lots of details. I saw them as obstacles but Julia saw them simply as details. I felt like she was always on my side and ready to tackle anything that popped up. She made me feel at ease through the entire process. I would recommend Julia and Waypost Realty to anyone.
Nick P.
Chris helped us find the perfect home. He arranged virtual tours when warranted, on site visits when appropriate and remained in constant contact with us through out the process. We felt as though we were his only clients. We highly recommend Chris Roper.
Karen S.
The Buddy Blake Team at Waypost always does a fantastic job with our clients relocating to Wilmington and the surrounding areas. Cannot say enough about how great of of a job they do. You make us look great!
Jason B.
Dan was amazing to work with. We found a beautiful home in Bolivia and he took care of us from beginning to end. Great communication and customer service. We highly recommend Waypost & Dan Haygood!!
Amy & Jim S.
Julia was a phenomenal asset to the purchase of our home this past October. It is extremely rare to say that I cannot think of anything I would have hoped she'd done better! She was always available, timely and accurate in her responses, very effective negotiator, organized and efficiently knew the process from start to finish and provided great resources for satisfying the contingencies. She is a great contributor to your group and I'm sure she will continue to exceed your clients expectations and continue to be a top agent!!
Tom & Barb C.
Amber was very thorough and helped us with our many questions along the process of buying our condo in Wilmington. When various obstacles arose she found ways to overcome them, even taking video shots of the condo that we ultimately purchased when we couldn't be in person to see it initially and came back a second time for us to see it in person. She is very professional and personable and we would highly recommend her for any buying and selling needs. She goes above and beyond and if we purchase again in the area we will definitely be having Amber guide us again!
Ann-Margaret S.
In my opinion Julia was one of the best agents I have ever worked with. She made us feel comfortable and was not trying to pressure us. She was trying to get us the best offer possible and informed us of everything. She in my opinion went out of her way for us. We also had issue with not being able to meet people at the house because we are not local and she volunteered to go meet them for us even though it was 45 minutes for her each way. She made us feel like we were friends helping us get our vacation home and not someone who just wants to make a sell. We will use her for all our needs now and into future when buying or selling in that area. Thanks Julia for all you do.
Keith K.
Julia went above & beyond to help us purchase our beach house. With us being out of town, she was always very accommodating on dates/times as well as helping out by running by the house when the lender needed something & we weren't in town to follow up! We will (hopefully) be listing our condo with her in a few months & can't wait to work with her in the future!
Courtney K.
Tyler Beverage was amazing! He helped us price our home appropriately for the area and market conditions. The research he did was super helpful. He walked us through the process and was available anytime we had questions. Great experience!!
Marty & Roxana R.
Wonderful experience working with the company, Cheryl the realtor was just Wonderful, helped me through everything and she was very professional. It was just a great experience.
Tommy M.
Cheryl Baucom was amazing in every regard. She persisted with us for about a year from start to close. Our needs for the ideal home were unique for our inter generational family and Cheryl found us the perfect fit with new construction. She was highly professional, yet personable and genuinely caring. Her knowledge and experience benefitted us every step of the way. As a Wilmington- area native, she has what it takes to give practical and sound advice, specific to the clients’ needs. She was attentive to our questions and concerns as they arose, and never left us hanging for answers at any time. I highly recommend Cheryl Baucom.
MaryGlenn H.
Best real estate transaction we have ever had. I was an out-of-state seller and she handled everything including meeting contractors at the home letting them in and locking up when they were done. She found us a handyman, landscaper, and window contractor.  The ease of the contract and the ability to sign all with ease online was another great experience. The whole process was so technically advanced from start to finish. I would strongly recommend working with Cheryl and the team at Waypost Realty.
Richard G
I can not say enough about Waypost Realty. Everyone in the office is friendly, acknowledgeable and keeps you informed on the status of your home that they have listed or sold. I had used another Realtor to list my house and it sat on the market and showed very little. I decided to change realtors and Tyler Beverage from Waypost Realty called me and things began to change for the better very quickly. Tyler had professional pictures taken of my home inside and out and my home looked amazing. The day my home was listed on the MLS it sold the same day, virtually. When I buy another home Waypost Realty and Tyler Beverage is who I am using. I recommend you do the same if you want a trustworthy, hardworking Realty company. Tyler did more than expected. Thank you Buddy Blake, Tyler Beverage and Waypost Realty for making the experience of selling my home an enjoyable and easy one during these hard time. God Bless you for watching out for me.
Pamela H
Buddy and Blair were wonderful to work with. Their perseverance and support through a challenging sale was very much appreciated. Thank you so much for everything, and here’s to 2021!
Lyana H
Buddy and his staff continue to go above and beyond. Throughout the process we could always rely on their kindness, professionalism and attention to detail. This was our second time working with Buddy and his team-needless to say we highly recommend Buddy and the Waypost team!
Caitlin J
Very professional and friendly service; utilizes current ways of marketing and showing properties; extensive knowledge of the market. Used services as both a buyer and seller and we were equally satisfied with the results.
Pam B
Buddy did a great job again! He priced it right and sold it quickly. Very professional. Definitely using Waypost again for my next purchase. The most knowledgeable realtor I have very used.
Alan S
Buddy recently sold my ICWW home on Bald Eagle Lane and I could not be more pleased with the expertise of he and his staff! I highly recommend waypost realty for any of your real estate needs!!
Renee B
We were introduced to Buddy by a mutual friend and we were so glad we met him. From our first meeting to discuss the listing of our small farm in Castle Hayne, we had confidence that Buddy's team was taking charge of the situation and they had our listing live quickly. Based on this initial experience, we used them again for a beach property purchase which went to closing seamlessly. You enlist a partner when you work with Buddy Blake.
Tom R
I like the networking, honesty and hard work Buddy's team puts into his listings and relationship. Buddy has his finger on the best financing for his clients and offers advice. Buddy will make a wrong right if he can. I deal with a lot of other realtors in my career and think Buddy is the Best!
Ken C
I can not say enough about Tyler Beverage. Tyler did an amazing job selling my home. He had professional pictures taken of the inside and outside of my home which made the biggest difference when my home was listed on the MLS. My home sold the same day after it was listed. I had listed my home previously with another realtor that did not take interest in my home and it sat on the market while other homes were selling. Tyler went way beyond what I expected of him. He called and texted me continously to keep me updated on each step after my home sold. Tyler Beverage is the realtor to use if you want your home sold. I am so impressed with Waypost Realty as well. Buddy Blake and all his staff are kind and friendly folks. You will not go wrong using Tyler Beverage and Waypost Realty. Thank you for everything Tyler...you're the best!
Pamela H
We were referred to Buddy by a friend of my wife's and could not have been happier with the experience. Buddy helped us refine what we wanted and where we wanted to live, using his extensive local knowledge and by showing us a variety of areas. When we selected the house he was a masterful negotiator, getting us a far better deal than we could have hoped for. We bought a place that needed work, which is where Buddy's local knowledge really came into play - if we needed a name for something Buddy had it. An all around great realtor.
Max and Char M.
What a great realtor. professional and excellent communication through phone calls/videos/and emails. Knows the market and he was courteous and friendly throughout listing and sale of beach lot even prior to listing giving market updates/information. Would not hesitate to recommend both he and office manager Blair to my friends
J Williams
In 2011, I moved to Florida and rented out my house in Leland. In November 2017, the tenants moved and I'd been gone 6 years, after living there for only 4. Living over 700 miles away, I had very few contacts remaining in the area and no idea how long I'd need to float the property until finding a quality tenant. I decided to sell. A trusted advisor recommended Buddy Blake to me and that is the best advice I've had in a long while. Buddy and I talked about the market and picked a realistic asking price. He helped me get in touch with quality contractors who took care of all the pre-sale issues at very fair prices. We listed on December 6th and closed on January 26th at 98.5% of asking price. I've never had a real estate transaction go so smoothly. If I ever handle a property in the Wilmington area again, Buddy is the only person I'll want to handle it. Buddy - thank you for helping my family turn a potential headache into a big win!
Doug R
Dan has been doing a fantastic job for us. He has been receptive and made himself available on our timetable, and has kept a positive, cheerful attitude throughout the process. I work in the IT field and have an extensive background in customer service from managing helpdesks and service delivery teams, so I tend to be more critical than most folks when it comes to delivering good Customer Service. We are relocating to Wilmington from another city. Dan has been running around with us on weekends and is helping us secure a home under a lease-purchase agreement. Even though he knows this will delay his commission, he has continued to work very hard with the sellers and jumped through several flaming hoops to provide us with a successful solution for all. He has impressed me with his drive, enthusiasm and commitment to making things work for us. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking to purchase a home. He has proven to be a dedicated and honest person that will go the extra mile to help his customer. I don't think you could find a better representative for your team and your business. With folks like Dan on your team, everyone wins!
Michael & Lee
I just wanted to thank you for helping in the sale of our home. Your staff made the selling process so stress free. Chris was an incredible agent & helped take the burden off of us in the sell. Amy is also to be thanked because during the selling process she both cheered us up & made everything so easily accessible in terms of contracts, etc. You have a wonderful group of employees! Thank you once again.
Brian & Kelly Jenness
Chris was our go to guy through the entire process. Great service. Thanks!
Ted Johnson
I want to you to know how helpful Brittany has been. I am waiting for my estimate from my handyman and can't wait for everything to be readied so I can put the house on the market! You have a great organization!!
Diane
Josh was amazing! He was engaged through the entire process & I consider him as a friend & not an agent! I have bought & sold 10+ homes and by far this was the best experience. THANKS JOSH!!!
Jay Jones
Thanks for all your hard work, Erik. You've really done a great job, especially given that we're in California. If you ever need a reference for another out of state investor, feel free to use my name.
Jim Tyler
To be honest we found your company to be very reputable. In researching your company we found that you certainly know the market & have great properties. We found Scott to have a lot of integrity which is what we look for in someone representing us in a transaction. We recommend anyone we know going to the Wilmington area
Christine & John Critelli
Erik is the bomb! Friendly, prompt and informed. He even set us up with temporary living arrangements during our relocation.
Teresa Tedesco
Zulima has been outstanding! I purchased a new home in Courtney Pines and I close next month. Zulima has been the ultimate professional, you are very lucky to have such an outstanding agent working for you.
Jane Connolly
John Feeser is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. This man made my dreams come true by helping find the best home I could ever find. He worked many many hours with me and it happened.....I will refer all of my friends, both near and far to Mr. John Feeser....He's the MAN!!! Should I say more??!!
Bonnie Wichmann
We have worked with Alexa on several of our home  selling and buying transactions. She has always  looked out for our best interest.  She makes sure that all of the details are taken care of and worked in the most professional  manner. Her 20 years of Real Estate knowledge made me feel confident that everything would go smoothly and  it did! We refer her to all of our friends and would look to her first for our future real estate needs.  She is a true asset to the Real Estate profession.
Paul and Randolph
My experience was very positive, all the way from your agent to borrowing your moving van. I appreciate the personal experience I had.
Meg Julian
Buddy, without a doubt you are a gem and your support staff is excellent. Warmest Regards
Conrad & Marsha Roncati
I just wanted to say thank you! Chris & Amy were wonderful to work with and we greatly appreciate you selling our house for us. You guys made what can be a very trying process virtually painless. I know that we will enjoy our new home, made possible by the Buddy Blake Team. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer! Thanks again.
JoAnna, Matt, & Taylor H.
I was a first time buyer and had lots of questions and your team was always available. Thank you again for the painless process of buying a home.
Timothy J. Hanley
Great service. Our agent John Feeser is great.
Kevin Longenecker
Mr. Blake, Where do I start...thank you so very much. Josh is a true asset to your office. My parents, at best, are high maintenance. Fortunately, for me, he handled our situation perfectly. He answered their questions, treated them with respect and stood back and let them make their decision. Thank you!
Sheila Grimes
John has done an outstanding job. He has been honest, timely, generous and surprisingly witty. We have bought in Brunswick Forest and this basicly was decided after we spent a week in Wilmington. John took us on a world-wind tour of 11 homes in one day. Some highlights of those 11 was that John followed up on one of the 3 we chose & he checked with the Condo Association President to get the “ rest of the story”. He gave us breathing space while we were there and didn’t bug us. We left empty handed, no condo, but he kept in touch and we finally found something that caught our eye and we are closing on the 30th of November. Again, he has been the best.
Jim & Liz Hester
Chris was very professional and responsive. Amy Browning did a great job with closing details and helped make the process painless! Thank you.
Tom Magrath
Hi Buddy - I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a great closing we recently had working with John Feeser. We've bought & sold a good number of homes in the area and this was one of the most seamless transactions we've had. Looks like you've put together a great team! All my best.
Penny Myers
Angela far exceeds the service I would expect from and/or have received in the past from a person in her position. She has personally followed issues and questions I have had from start to completion. You are very lucky to have someone like that on your team
Austin Thomas
Dear Buddy, we recently closed on a property in Ashton. We worked with Zulima Smith from your team. She has been wonderful. Her professionalism and knowledge of the area have been a great asset to us. You have a great member on your team. We are continuing to work with Zulima for a possible second beach property. Sincerly,
Melanie McNamara
Dan Keller has to be the most patient real estate agent in the world. He has taken the time to speak with us over the phone, email, and in person to explain the entire home buying experience A to Z every step of the way. We can honestly say with him there were no surprises or unknowns. And he did all of this with a smile and great sense of humor. He took the time to show us each house I felt passionate about even though it looked like it might take months for us to make a final decision :) We are sure he does the same great job with every home buyer, but we must say that first time home buyers would be very luck to have him as an agent. I know that we feel that way and we will recommend him to anyone we know/meet that is interested in purchasing a home.
Bobbie & Jack Soukup
Good morning Buddy! Paul and I both agree that working with you and Chris was the best way to get the property sold and thankfully it did finally happen! Chris was very responsive to my calls and was extremely kind & professional in every way. All's well that ends well, though, and overall we were extremely satisfied with the professional service we received from you and your team. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest, we rate you guys at a 9 and will recommend you in the future! Thanks Buddy! Have a great day!
Laura Morris
The Buddy Blake Team has made our move from Long Island, New York a pleasure. Josh Ausband, our Realtor, helped us every way possible. He advised us on what to look for and got to know us as friends. Therefore, he was able to find us not just a house but our NEW HOME. Everyone in the office we dealt with was so kind and helpful. They even lent us a moving truck to help make our move. It's a big job to move and they made it so much easier. Thank you so much
Jean & Barry Alpert
Dan Keller was professional, knowledgeable, courteous, & responsive. Our buying experience could not have been better! 
Danja Bailey
Having been a consultant and coach for nearly 20 years, I have never come across a support staff like you have in Amy & Brittany. They are very good at constantly encouraging the team, staying focused on solutions, focusing on the positive. They are consistent in their message to the entire team. I truly consider them the top two support staff in the country! 
Bob Corcoran, Corcoran Consulting & Coaching
Hello Buddy. Thank you for asking about Zulima. I couldn't ask for a better, more caring, responsible person to have as an agent. She is wonderful and I have had the pleasure of both speaking to her in person to follow through and emails me every day with property listings and their updates. We appreciate everything Zulima sends us and she has politely answered every question we could have about neighborhoods. She is an asset to your team and puts everything into her job and her clients. Thank you for a great experience! 
Lori & Nick Kulczycki
Buddy: Thank you! We had such a good experience with Zulima that your company would be the first we recommend. Have a happy new year.
Harry & Veronica Rogers
Buddy has provided exemplary service in the process of buying my home in Leland. Although my budget was limited, Buddy gave me the same level of attention that I would expect had I been shopping in a much higher price point. I have purchased & sold 3 homes in Maryland prior to my purchase here in Leland and Buddy is the only agent who has exceeded my expectations. I recommend him to others at every opportunity, and should I decide to purchase again in this area, Buddy will be my agent.
Lynn Crawford
Everyone at Buddy Blake’s team has been so nice since I first spoke with Buddy late last summer. Your customer service is exceptional and I appreciate all everyone has done to assist me in what I originally thought was a journey to sell the house. I have and will continue to tell people how much I have appreciated the support & information I have received from Buddy-all this without my house even being listed with your team! You guys are AWESOME and I see why this team is successful!!!! If, at any time during the future I find that I need to sell this house and purchase another one, the Buddy Blake team is who I will call. Thanks again!!!!
Barbara T
Hello Buddy! I wanted to respond to your email & let you know that I am very happy with everything your office did for me. Thank you so very much!!! I am thoroughly enjoying my new home at Sellar's Cove! I have found this community to be a clean, safe, & peaceful one. My neighbors are pleasant & respectful of each other. It is a perfect fit for me. In addition, I have needed some help with this and that from the builder's plumber, alarm folks, etc. They have been prompt to address and fix each and every issue. Josh was a joy to work with. He is truly an asset to your team!! I will surely recommend you & your team to anyone who asks. Happy Holidays!
Sheila Grimes
We can not say enough great things about Buddy's team. With us living out of state, they were so flexible with our schedule and made the whole process as easy as possible. Not only was she knowledgeable and patient, but we could completely trust her to work diligently for us as buyers. We were extremely happy with our choice of realtors and extremely happy with our house!
Sean & Stacy B.
Buddy and his team are fantastic pros! His knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills are outstanding! He is the clear agent choice for any potential seller or buyer of real estate. We have bought and sold over 15 properties over the years and Buddy's team is the cream of the crop. Thank you!
Rob & Lynn G.
