“Walnut Cove Realty helped us with so many aspects of the building process and acclimating here. Our realtor took us to see the properties. There were only 4 in our price range, so we decided to build a house for the first time. He pointed us in all the right directions and helped along the way with the title company, finding insurance, and all the little details. We were texting and on the phone with him all the time, asking questions, and we never felt like we were bothering him.”
