Norma spent an entire day taking my wife and I house shopping. When the day began she had picked out a dozen houses that all had a variety of the things we told her we were looking for. When we found the house we loved she got us an even better deal then we ever thought possible in such a tough and competitive buyer's market. I would recommend Norma to anyone looking to buy or sell a house and I will most certainly use her again when I am ready to upgrade!
Norma is awesome! She helped me get my house ready for sale and put it on the market at the proper time. I was able to sale my house in one day, 19 viewings and 5 offers the first day. My house sold for over asking price! Her knowledge of buying and selling houses is amazing. Thanks Norma!
When I was purchasing my first home from a builder, everything that could have gone wrong seemed to happen. Having Norma on our side was such a huge relief. Her persistence in the face of challenges and knowledge in the area, building process and connections were all outstanding. I would recommend Norma whether you’re new to the RTP area or if you are just looking for change. She has a true talent to listening to your needs and best of all, keeping others accountable and delivering on promises.. even if it seems impossible. Norma will not disappoint or back down until you have found the perfect home! THANK YOU Norma!!
I elected Norma as and real estate agent to sell my house in Raleigh. She has an excellent knowledge, very supportive and expert to assist her clients from beginning to the end. She is easily accessible for any question/concern and always offers help...a great professional to earn a business with.
If you want results, this is the realtor to choose. Norma was our real estate agent for 4 property sales. She is dedicated to the seller and compassionate to the buyer. She will give you reasonable expectations and stand behind them. We lived in the Siler City area for 7 years and developed many friendships. Twice we hired realtors from this group. Unfortunately, neither was able to move the property. Norma took the reins and "boom" we had results. During our last two transactions, we were living in Texas. She did all the footwork. She met with the city planners, found folks to clear our land and updated us frequently. Her father died during the last negotiation. Norma continued to act as the intermediary. Despite her loss, she balanced her professional and family commitments and finished the offers. A true processional and loads of fun to be around. We wish she practiced in Texas.
We weren't planning to buy a new house, much less sell our current house, but we stumbled onto a new development in downtown Raleigh and were instantly ready to make the move. Since it was new construction with an on-site agent and we had found the property without a realtor, our first thought was to proceed without the assistance of a realtor to represent us in the transaction. So glad we didn't proceed with that option and really happy we chose Norma to represent us in the purchase. Norma worked tirelessly during the construction process and closing. She kept us updated all along the way and coordinated with the on-site realtor on any issues or questions that came up. I could not even come close to quantifying the amount of time and headache she saved us during the whole process. With her help, everything was wrapped up almost effortlessly on our part.
Norma was the listing agent for the sell of our house in Apex (we had lived in / raised our kids for 21 years). She has the honest and upfront approach of a seasoned/experienced real estate agent. My wife and I totally appreciated her professional and unfiltered assessment of the sell-able condition of our house and her recommendations for repairs / refresh to get it ready to put on the market. We completed everything she recommended (she gave us several names to contact for estimates of repair work). One week later, our house sold the day it was listed with multiple offers. During the whole process she kept in touch with us either by email or text. She walked us through and kept us updated throughout the listing / selling process. We were so confident with her abilities - not to mention the friendship that grew out of our exchange - that we also had her help us with the purchase of our new house.
Norma is a fantastic real estate agent. We were new to the area and could not have been happier with the service she provided. Market was (is) hot and even though we're sure she was very busy she always made us feel like we were one of her only clients. Super responsive and highly knowledgable about the Cary/Apex/Holly Springs/Fuquay markets. This was also our first home purchase and she was great at walking us through the whole process step by step. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I have not found a more knowledgeable realtor since I moved here in 1989. She is honest and has a ton of integrity. She respects the other realtors and during my buying process she provided such valuable guidance.
Give Norma a call today you will not be disappointed.
My wife and I are incredibly selective about our choice of real estate agents. We looked for someone who was personable, proactive, and responsive. Norma has far exceeded our expectations, so much so that we’ve partnered with her twice for property transactions. I always felt like Norma’s advice was the same she would offer her closest friends and family. We were completely confident that we had someone in our corner, an advocate who would defend our position, but wasn’t afraid to tell us when we should consider another perspective. Norma is authentic, humble, and passionate. I would not hesitate to solicit her assistance again, or recommend her to others.
Norma assisted my farmer and I obtain the perfect home to meet my father’s needs. She worked with the home owner to move closing to accommodate our needs. Very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Norma will treat you like family. When buying a home (one of the most important decisions of your life) you want someone you can trust - Norma is that person. I couldn't recommend her more. She is personal, pays close attention to detail, she knows the market, she is from the area, Norma will go out of her way to make sure she does what is right for you, her client.
We engaged Norma to help us locate a home in a the Triangle area not too distant from my husband’s office. We had very detailed criteria to describe our \u201Cperfect home\u201D. We were driving over from Charlotte on weekends in January and February 2017 trying to find a house during a time of few listings. Norma spent extraordinary time day and night via e-mail, text, phone and in person driving us to homes to view. It was a home that she found (rather than one we saw online) that was the perfect fit. She negotiated a good price, made certain needed repairs were made, recommended financing contacts and an attorney. She provided recommendations of companies to do additional work after move in. It all went quickly and smoothly. We could not ask for a better agent. We would definitely use Norma again. We highly recommend Norma!
I wish there were words to explain how exceptional this experience has been, ALL thanks to Norma.
I am a 28 year old female, never having bought a house before, and doing this all on my own. Norma treated me like her own daughter. She looked out for me. She guided me to make sure that I wasn't missing a beat, and going well beyond the call of duty to make sure that I was cared for. She gave me full leeway to make my own decisions, but always had the relevant and necessary information that I needed to make a good choice, and made sure I always knew the ask the questions that I didn't know that I didn't know.
I look back on this whole experience and I can't imagine this having gone any more perfectly. I had a friend, a mentor, a mother, a partner, and someone who cared about EXACTLY what I wanted more than anything else.
I will NEVER use another realtor besides Norma, as long as I am able. I've heard everyone's stories about their realtors, and it's comical to know the degree to which Norma exceeds the other relators out there.
Do yourself a favor: use Norma. Trust me: you'll end up writing a review just like this before you know it.
Norma Higdon is the consummate professional. She's been working in real estate for quite some time and it shows. She goes to bat for you and puts your needs first. She is extremely responsive to emails, phone calls, texts, etc. and her sense of urgency is unmatched. I'm in sales myself, so I have very high standards and Norma met every one of them. Her customer service was excellent. She was assertive; yet pleasant. She liked to have fun; yet she took her job very seriously. I would most definitely use her services again should I ever need another realtor.
Norma goes above and beyond to help her clients sell their homes. In my case, since i travel and work full time - she personally oversaw the readiness of my home, including finding necessary handymen, painters and laborers to fix and take care of those burdensome tasks a homeowner may not have experience or contacts.
She definitely cares about her customer, and the buyer - to make sure everyone is happy. She goes above and beyond consistently. I walked in on her a couple times cleaning fans and wiping floors!!
In these days of internet and ease of home buying/selling - she earned every penny of her commission - and i was very grateful to have her on my team.
Norma helped us sell our home a few years ago. It was a great experience and she guided us to price it correctly so that it sold in a flash! When we moved back to the area we looked her up and she worked with us to find the perfect home in just a few days! Lots of experience; bubbly personality, and sound advice --- she's great!
Just sold and bought a home with Norma, and let me just say that she is THE BEST REALTOR around! I had a very difficult sale but she was by my side the whole time and got me thru it with the least amount of stress possible... she told me when to really consider what was happening vs. when NOT to worry. I could not
have weathered this storm myself; it was too complicated. She was my rock. On the buy side, she listened to what I was looking for in a home, and we found the absolute perfect home for my family. She handles every transaction with professionalism, guidance and HUMOR. Trust me, you can't find a better, more knowledgeable agent or one that will work harder for you.
We chose for Norma to represent us when selling our house because she was the one that helped us purchase the home 6 years ago. This was our first time selling a house and we were pretty nervous about it. Norma was extremely helpful and walked us through it. She is always accessible and very knowledgeable about the processes involved. She makes you feel comfortable and you can tell that she actually cares.
We are currently buying a new house and she is our realtor for that as well!
My significant other and I worked with Norma to purchase our first home. She came very highly recommended to us by friends who purchased a home in Cary. She held our hand every step of the way and provided helpful advice and guidance during the negotiation process. She was very quick to respond and act on issues that needed to be promptly resolved with the house before closing. I would HIGHLY recommend Norma to anyone who wants an honest, communicative, well-organized realtor who will be your best advocate during the home-buying process!
By far the best real estate agent in the Triangle. Use her! Her attention to detail is amazing. Response time is outstanding. Norma is friendly and honest. She will help you make tough decisions in regards to both buying and selling your home. Norma helped us purchase our home back in 2005 and recently helped us sell that same home.
I bought my first home after moving from the north and Norma was very attentive to my needs and affordability. She did not pressure me into any decision to buy just to make a sale. Norma is attentive,sincere and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to buying and selling a home. I recently sold my home and Norma was just attentive as when I purchased my home.
I would highly recommend Norma for your realtor.
My husband and I purchased our first home this summer with Norman's help. We were really nervous about the process because of our price point and the way the market was, everything was being sold in days. We looked a multiple homes that I had picked out and we ended up putting our offer in on a cute little townhome that she had found for us. We already thought Norma was great but then we were told by the listing agent that after the sellers received multiple offers in the first day, it was Norma's responsiveness that made them accept our offer. I would highly recommend Norma Higdon!
Norma helped us find the home of our dreams in a very small window of time. She took much of the stress of relocating off of us by communicating with the sellers agent and our lender on a daily basis. She was always easy to reach and very attentive to our every need. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Cary/Apex/Holly Springs area.
Norma is an excellent real estate agent. She provided accurate estimates on the suggest sales price and the right recommendations to improve the home. She also provided reliable contractors to make repairs and validated the cost of their proposals as well as check on the quality of their work while I was remote. I would definitely encourage you to give Norma a call!
Norma, was truly a Buyer's Agent and Seller's Agent. Her service was personal and straight forward. She told us exactly what we needed to know without any fluff. With selling and buying a house at the same time she kept us on track with what we needed to do with scheduling surveys, inspections, and always had someone on hand when we had troubles with plumbing and handyman work. Norma's experience was very valuable and she had the patience of a saint especially when we kept changing our minds once or twice. One thing we valued most about Norma was that we never had any pressure to buy or sell. She kept telling us to go our own speed and make sure it is what we wanted. I would recommend Norma to everyone for buying and/or selling your home.
Norma was a great person to work with and was very helpful with our recent home purchase. I would recommend her to friends and family or anyone looking to buy a home. She had great knowledge of the area and was able to give helpful recommendations based on her experience. She was patient and willing to go the extra mile for us to meet our needs. She understood what was important to us worked hard to find what we wanted. We really felt she was trying to get us the best property possible, even pointing out flaws in homes we wouldn't have otherwise noticed that may have turned us away. She was great at communicating and was always available to answer our questions. Norma made our home finding process enjoyable and we wouldn't think twice about using her again.
Norma was awesome! She was always available and responsive (even in the evening and on weekends). She did a great job getting our house sold quickly and for asking price.
Norma is the Best! I purchased my home with Norma's help in 2009. I knew nothing about buying a home, but Norma really made it easy. She helped to guide me through the entire process. I ended up purchasing a brand new home, and Norma not only came up with the suggestion to get a new home, she even helped pick out colors, hardware etc. I can't say enough good things about her professionalism. I not only consider her my Realtor, but a friend as well. I definitely plan to utilize her expertise in the future. I would not hesitate a second to recommend her.
We have worked with Norma on two sales and two purchases. She is always top-notch, incredibly patient, and full of great advice. When we were first-time sellers, she walked us through the process and helped us make well-informed decisions. I really couldn't work with anyone else because Norma's raised the bar so high no one else will do!!!
We have relied on Norma's expertise in purchasing & selling 6 homes. Our children were very satisfied when she helped them buy homes in the Holly Springs area.
Thank you so very much Norma!
Peggy & Jim Fonda
I have bought and sold many houses in my life and the last 2 were working with Norma. In my experience Norma is the best. If you are listing a property or buying you need an experienced, knowledgable and caring professional; Norma embodies all of this and more.
We highly recommend Norma Higdon with Coldwell Banker Advantage, when buying or selling your home! Whether you are looking for a new home in the same town or from 5,000 miles away, Norma can help! We felt lucky to find her! Norma listens carefully and is brilliant at matching wants and needs with the perfect home.
Norma is extremely knowledgeable of this area and of the housing market. She has helped me purchase and sell several houses over the many years and made the experience simple and enjoyable. She made sure every detail was taken care of to prevent any last minute surprises and my best interests were put first. When I had questions or concerns, they were addressed immediately. I would highly recommend Norma to anyone in need of selling or purchasing a home!
We enjoyed working with Norma to purchase our first house very much. Since we had never been through the process, we appreciated the time she spent walking us through everything, not pressuring us, and listening to our needs. She has a great knowledge of the Cary / Apex area as well. We felt that she was on our side during price negotiations and the whole process went smoothly.
We sold our house in one day! All because we listened to what she suggested. She knows her stuff. Norma was very patient with us while we searched for just the right house. I would recommend Norma to anyone looking to sell or buy. She is very friendly, and took the time to work with us throughout the whole process.
Norma helped us purchase our first home. She was excellent to work with. She was very mindful in pointing out things that may hinder resale. She was there every step in the process from looking at tons of homes to the final paperwork. I will definitely use Norma with my next home purchase! She made it so easy.
Norma listed our home for us in Knightdale. We selected her because of her successful listings and sales in our areas. We also selected her because we knew of her listings and sales in several other areas.
Norma's professionalism and recommendations regarding showing our home were such an excellent asset in the quick sale of our home. She is so easy to work with. Her expertise in negotiating price made everything go smoothly and also we were able to expedite our closing.
Remember, it only takes one person to like and buy your home. Sometimes 3 weeks seemed forever and "zing" she had a buyer. It all takes patience and she was great with us.
Norma is highly personable and willing to help you in many ways. She is available to answer any questions you may have and if she doesn't have an answer will get back with you.
We would definitely use Norma again if we were located in her area. I do not hesitate to refer her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. She is fantastic.
I have purchased and sold two houses with Norma. Both were sold at difficult times, and they sold within 3 weeks! She is wonderful, and I have recommended her to many friends. I have friends and family who have used Norma in the past, and no one would use anyone else but Norma.
Coming from the west coast I required a specific type of house and location. I gave Norma my parameters and also pictures of the house I lived in before so she could get an idea of what I'm looking for. She took hours out of her day to take me all over to look at houses. Within a week of moving to NC, she found me the perfect house that fit 99.9% of my requirements. She was there for me during negotiation/building process and was very knowledgeable and informed me on aspects of homes in NC vs homes where I came from that I was not aware of. Thank goodness for that!!!! The entire process ran incredibly smoothly and she was just an incredible lady to work with. Very hard worker and very determined to get exactly what we were looking for and didn't give up!
Norma has been my real estate agent for almost 14 years now. Norma helped me buy my first house and then helped my fiance sale his house years later.
Norma listened to me when I told her what I wanted and needed in a house. The 5th house I was shown, was the perfect home for me. I have been living here now for 14 years. Norma was also able to sale my fiance's house for what he was asking and within 5 days of being on the market! Norma is friendly, knowledgeable, and is always looking out for your best interest.
Norma helped me find the perfect home for my elderly parents who were moving here from out of state. She was extremely knowledgeable and made the whole process smooth and enjoyable. I trust her opinions and guidance, and I would definitely recommend her to those looking for a top-notch realtor!
Norma is in a word, amazing. She helped us through the process of being 1st time home buyers with patience and expertise. And when we found ourselves moving out of town a few years later, on short notice, she helped us sell our home in 2 days. She was always professional, responsive, and just down right fun to work with.
We wanted to formally thank you for the outstanding service you provided to us as our Realtor on the recent purchase of our new home. Prior to working with you, we did not fully realize the complexities of the home search/purchase process, and admittedly underestimated the many benefits a Realtor provides! Working with you over the past 7 months has brought us a new respect for the services you provide and the unmatched value that a good Realtor can be to the real estate process. In particular, your attention to detail, responsiveness, support network, patience, negotiating skills, and last but not least your pleasant demeanor, all made the home purchases process much less stressful than we ever could imagine! You are an outstanding professional and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time with you! We not only consider you our Realtor but our friend. We are sad that we won't spend as much time together, but look forward to having you over to our new home soon! Tim & Ashley Grady
Norma has helped me both buy a home and sell a home, both during the time I was planning a wedding. She went above and beyond in both transactions. When it was discovered that I needed a new microwave, she picked one up on a personal trip to Lowe's and had her handyman install it. She coordinated all the little things on both ends, so I could concentrate on my BIG DAY!!! Norma gives good advice to her clients because she has been in the business for so long, and she knows the area she sells. Growing up in this area gives her a leg up on the competition. Her referral rate speaks for itself!!!!
Norma is a lifelong North Carolina resident, so she knows the expanding area well. Unlike my previous realtor experiences, she did not pressure me. She knew my price points and the features I was looking for in a home, and she gave me objective opinions when viewing a home. I also felt she provided me with good advice when we reached negotiations, and she was always reachable and prompt in returning messages. She made the process of buying a home less stressful for me, which I didn't think was possible. I will use Norma again in the future and recommend her to anyone.
