What My Clients are Saying

Vance Young is the ideal realtor. He's friendly, kind, knows everything about the area, and has absolute personal integrity in everything he does. He is the ultimate advocate for each of his clients, and is responsible for our wonderful experience of living in Wilmington over the past eleven years. In fact, I'm so impressed by Vance, I've featured him as a paradigm example of ethics in business in my new Doubleday/Currency book, If Harry Potter Ran General Electric: Leadership Wisdom from the World of the Wizards.

As a practicing real estate attorney for over 34 years, I have dealt with realtors on a daily basis.

I have always found them to be honest and hard working professionals. However, when Judy and I are purchasing or selling our personal properties, we contract with Vance. In addition, I have always recommended him to my clients. His integrity is unquestioned and his knowledge of the market is unequaled. As good a realtor as Vance is, he is an even better person. He has a wonderful personality and it is always a pleasure doing business with him.

“Finding there current home on Vance’s website, Matt and Loulie Scharf relocated here from Asheville, NC. Although a little unsure about the area at first, Vance was able to show them properties that fit their lifestyle. In addition, they had Vance help them purchase a lot he had shown them for investment purposes. When the time came to market that lot, it was under contract in 3 weeks; even in a challenging market. They continue their relationship with Vance as they look for their next home in the immediate area.”

I honestly cannot find adequate words to describe the wonderful service my husband and I have had from Vance! First, he had the unenviable task of helping us sell my home place on the Intracoastal Waterway. I had inherited the property from my parents, and it was in a dilapidated state and was in our minds very unmarketable. We had been trying to sell it for over two years with no luck. Vance came in, coached us on what needed to be done, priced it right and had it sold almost as soon as it was listed! He even got us our asking price! It was an amazing relief to have that off of us, and this allowed us to buy our perfect "goldilocks" home, again with Vance's expert help, advice and tutelage, later this summer. Now we have a couple of other properties listed with Vance, and we've had wonderful responses from potential buyers, all due to Vance's incredible marketing skills. As former professionals (we're retired attorneys) and locals (I am a Wilmington native), we are extremely impressed with Vance's knowledge of our area, his ability to price property to sell without under-pricing it, his ability to negotiate fairly and professionally engendering our trust, and -- most importantly of all -- his incredibly positive attitude. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell their property.
