Meg was just what I needed to get from thinking it might be time to buy a home to moving into a beautiful house that meets all my needs. The process was quicker than I expected, and Meg ensured that everything progressed smoothly at every step. I am a first time home buyer, so I appreciated that Meg clearly laid out what to expect at every stage. After listening patiently as I worked through what I wanted in a home, she even picked out what turned out to be the perfect place for me in a neighborhood I was initially reluctant to consider. We had to move fast to make an offer. From a Saturday viewing to a Sunday offer, Meg made herself 100% available. This was typical of my whole experience with her - prompt responses any time and any day, with thorough investigation of any questions that arose. After coaching me through dealing with a competing offer, the process ended with the right property at precisely the price point I had envisaged from the day I first walked into her office. I couldn't be happier with my home and home-buying experience.

My husband and I worked with Meg to buy our first home in Raleigh. After renting for several years, buying a home was a big step for us and I thought the whole process would be very difficult. However, Meg and her team made it incredibly easy and even fun! She explained everything to us ahead of  time in an easy to understand way so we knew exactly what to expect; she offered thoughtful opinions throughout the search process; she pointed out key things during showings that I wouldn't have considered; she asked great questions during the inspection process; she worked with us on all negotiations so we felt comfortable. Overall, she's very knowledgeable, thorough, thoughtful, and most importantly, honest. I'd highly recommend Meg to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Raleigh area.

- Jamie O.

Meg and Sandra were with us every step of the way. They grasped our unique needs, answered our questions, and made this our easiest property purchase yet.

- David W.

Meg gets five stars across the board! We had such a great all-around experience buying our home with her. She is everything you'd want out of a real estate agent: proactive, responsive and flexible to her clients' needs, not to mention knowledgeable about the market and buying process. We felt calm and confident the whole way through, and were very happy with the final outcome. Thank you, Meg and Sandra, for making something that could have been stressful into a fun and successful endeavor.

- Alison C.

Meg is the MOST professional, proficient, punctual, knowledge, hard working and most important HONEST realtor we have ever met. We highly recommend her.

- Rich R.

Meg is the only reason that we currently live in our gorgeous dream house. We were only actively looking for one week, but when we saw this house we knew it was absolutely perfect. Meg was honest with us about other houses we looked at and was meticulous with details to ensure we knew everything about the houses we were seeing. She helped us make a competitive offer and continued to follow-up while we were waiting on an answer. When we felt like we might not be the best offer, she quickly helped us pull together an even better offer which finally got accepted. This market is tough and without Meg we never would have gotten this house. We cannot say enough good things about working with her. On top of being the best agent we've ever worked with, she's a great person with a wonderful sense of humor.

- Kennan H.

My wife and I worked with Meg in 2015 to purchase our first home and through that process, built a great relationship with her. We decided to sell our house this year and our first call was to Meg. From the start, Meg was fantastic and was with us every step of they way. We were already living out of state and Meg made the selling process seamless and eliminated all stress. Meg truly is an amazing real estate agent who works hard, works with integrity, and maintains your best interest.

In all of her qualities as an agent, she is an even better person with a very kind heart. Thank you Meg for all of your hard work and dedication. You truly have become a top tier agent and we wish you the absolute best!

- Joshua P.

Honestly, if you work with anyone else on the roller coaster that is buying and selling your home, you're doing yourself a disservice. Meg rides that roller coaster for you so you can stand on the sidelines and wave, sparing yourself heartburn. As a first time home buyer, she took the time and patience to explain all the real estate things in Layman's terms like I was a Kindergartener. Then, years later when I was a seller, she made me feel like I was a real estate mogul with a Harvard MBA. She handled everything from critical negotiations with buyers to communicating with my renters efficiently and effectively when I was unavailable, and everything in between. I have referred countless friends and family to Meg, all who have had the most positive experience with her. I trust her completely. She always does what is best for her client regardless if it creates more work for her. MOVE WITH MEG. PERIOD!

- Kate R.

• Made selling and buying our home as stress free as possible.
• Extremely responsive and on top of everything you need.
• Greatest realtor on the planet

• Became a part of our family during such a trying time.
• Unprecedented negotiation skills.
• Lived up to our high expectations.
• Lined up all the inspectors and contractors for us to make our lives so
much easier.
• Advised us and helped us make the best decisions for us in such a
chaotic market.
• Recommend Meg for any home buyer or seller.
• Did everything in her power to get us a good deal and guided us through
the home buying/selling processes.

We dealt with numerous realtors throughout this chaotic homebuying/selling process and there are no realtors who come close to Meg. She is beyond responsive and works ridiculously hard to get you the house of your dreams or sell your house for a record price like she did for us. Meg lined everything up for us and guided us through the entire process which made our lives so much easier and less stressful during such a stressful time. MEG MANAGED 91 SHOWINGS, 31 OFFERS AND SOLD OUR HOUSE FOR AN ASTOUNDING $45K OVER ASKING PRICE IN ONE WEEKEND.

When we sold our house, the new homeowners asked that we remove some firewood before they closed ON THE DAY OF THE CLOSING. Meg dropped what she needed to do and removed the wood before we could even make it there. This is one of many reasons why I recommend moving with Meg.

- Alex J.

We’ve worked with Meg on several different properties in the last 7 years. We recommend her to all our family and friends. She is the best realtor in the triangle!

- Jennifer P.

We can not say enough great things about Meg and her team! We moved from Richmond, VA and were completely unfamiliar with the triangle. Meg went out of her way to meet with us on weekends to tour us around the different neighborhoods giving us all the necessary info to help choose the best place  for us. Katie was extremely responsive and flexible with showings, and always available for questions. Additionally, Meg and her team were very knowledgeable and helpful in making offers and working through negotiations. When it came to closing, Sandra was beyond helpful with making recommendations for inspections, general contractors, and anything else needed during the process. Everyone on Meg's team is amazing to work with and make the home buying process a great experience

- Drewry C.

Meg helped my husband and I purchase our first home. I can honestly say we could not have done it without Meg's (and her amazing team) assistance. Meg met with us a couple of months before we started seriously looking to discuss the home buying process. She walked us through the process and made  everything very easy to understand (which was super helpful for me as a new home buyer) - we would need to do, the cost of everything and her recommendations. Once we started seriously looking, Meg was right there with us, from week to week. She was available via telephone, email and text to answer any questions we had and to give her recommendations. She let us know about houses that seemed to fit what we were looking for. She scheduled numerous viewings (within a day, at our convenience) and suggested open houses when appropriate. She was SO knowledgeable! When she walked us through homes, she would tell us what to look for and point out things I would have never noticed (or thought to ask). When we found the house that we eventually purchased, Meg sat with us and gave us her honest options (there were numerous offers on the house). She was creative and aggressive re: terms and our offer was accepted. Once we were under contract, Meg held our hand through everything. There is a lot to do during due diligence/closing and Meg and her team guided us through every single step! They were there to answer questions, give advice/feedback and arrange appointments for us (attorney, inspector, etc). I cannot say enough about Meg and her team. They were AMAZING! We truly could not have done this without them! I cannot recommend Meg and her team enough. Do NOT hesitate to work with Meg! You will not regret it

- Jamie O.

My husband and I would highly recommend Meg to anyone looking to buy a home in the Raleigh area. We were nervous to buy our first home and Meg was amazing throughout the whole process! Meg made everything as easy as possible for us and knew exactly how to advise us; so that the process would go  very smoothly! Meg and her assistant Sandra were always available to talk and answer our questions, and they know the market very well. We felt as though Meg cared about us and our decisions, more than any other agent could have! We are so happy with our new home and owe it to Meg! She is great at what she does and anyone looking for a home would be lucky to work with her

- Morgen B.

I would highly recommend Meg! We called a bunch of real estate agents when we started looking but didn’t call any more after we spoke to Meg the first time on the phone. She was just great! Almost every house we looked at were multiple offer situations or ones that she expected to go within a day  at above the asking price (she was right). We needed to be aggressive if we were serious and Meg always made it work. She’s responsive, assertive and made the entire process as painless as possible. We’re very happy with the outcome and will definitely go back to Meg if/when purchasing another home in the area

- Vince W.

As a first time home buyer we cannot say how thankful we were to have Meg as our buyers agent. She was knowledgeable and patient, holding our hands through the entire process. Buying a house is a lengthy and stressful process, and she was able to keep us informed and on-schedule at each step.   Meg's advice proved especially invaluable during home walkthroughs and negotiations with the seller. In an industry where everyone is after your money, its good to have someone knowledgeable and trustworthy like her on your side. If you find yourself in the market for a house, we highly recommend using Meg McKinnon as your agent

- Rachel I.

Meg gets five stars across the board! We had such a great all-around experience buying our home with her. She is everything you'd want out of a real estate agent: proactive, responsive and flexible to her clients' needs, not to mention knowledgeable about the market and buying process. We felt calm  and confident the whole way through, and were very happy with the final outcome. Thank you, Meg and Sandra, for making something that could have been stressful into a fun and successful endeavor.

- Alison C.

Meg is an incredibly thoughtful and diligent real estate agent. Her sharp wit, savvy charm and endless charisma make for a dynamic trio that any client dealing in real estate would be lucky to have.

- Alec J.

I would (and have) highly recommend Meg to anyone looking to buy a house in Raleigh. She puts everything she has into being professional and getting her client what they want.

My wife and I recently bought a house in the Oakwood neighborhood. Meg worked with us day in and day out for months in order to put a deal together. She was in constant communication with us, helped walk my wife and I through the regulations for buying a house in North Carolina, gave us invaluable advice when needed, and was always reliable.

At the end of the day, what I appreciated most about Meg was how much she cared about us and our happiness. I felt she genuinely wanted what was best for us regardless of the outcome for her. For me, that was so important and that trust and care for our best interest helped see us through a really difficult negotiating process.

- Mat B.

If you're looking for a relator who will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect home, than Meg is an excellent choice. She's exceptionally responsive, positive and ON IT! She made our home buying experience in Raleigh one that we will never forget. :)

- Stacy P.

I would highly recommend Meg to anyone looking to purchase a home. It was my first time buying and she went above and beyond making the process as easy for me to understand as possible.
She was honest, reliable, and incredibly helpful in setting up appointments with contractors, and negotiating with a seller who was not using an agent. She was available 24/7 to me throughout the entire process, we couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Meg and our new home

- Kellyn M.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Meg. We met her at an open house and are very happy that we decided to work with her. She consistently went above and beyond to help us through this process.
While still trying to find a home, she kept us knowledgeable about what houses were available and did her best to find options that met our needs.

When we found our home, Meg made the process as painless as possible. She helped us negotiate a price that we were comfortable with and enabled us to quickly get under contract. During the due diligence period, Meg set up and made herself available for multiple estimates for repairs that needed to be done.

Overall, we could not have asked for a better agent. She was honest, knowledgeable, responsive, and quite thorough

- Josh H.

Meg could not have been better! She really, truly cared about us and our happiness. She guided us to find the PERFECT home for us. We were fairly new to the area, and her insight into the Raleigh area was SO helpful. She was responsive, helpful, FUN, and was with us every step of the way. She lined everything up for us once we were under contract, and made the process very seamless. We love her and would recommend her to EVERYONE.

- Alex J.

Extremely well versed in Real Estate & Beyond Patient!

Meg was our Real Estate Agent as my husband and I relocated to Raleigh from Washington DC. We were so lucky to have her and she knows the ins and outs of every real estate line item in NC. I don't think I am exaggerating on this one as the house that we fell in love with seemed to be an extra special situation. The house was built in 1899 and the buyers had it on the market, pulled it off, and had a lot of really interesting "issues". Meg was patient with us and helped coach us through some different ways to think and approach the situation. We negotiated relentlessly throughout the entire process and got our DREAM house. I don't know if we would have gotten this house for the right price in our budget had it not been for Meg hustling for us during the process... And she is nice too!!

Thankful for her knowledge, expertise, and ease to work with. Couldn't recommend Moving with Meg, any more because she is that wonderful!

- Martha D.

Where to begin? Meg found us the perfect first home. It had just about everything on our list! She was extremely knowledgeable and was able to walk us through the process seamlessly. She told us exactly what to expect every step of the way. Meg bent over backwards to make sure all the inspections went through in a timely manner and that we closed on time. We were told by pretty much everyone that the house buying process would be long and stressful but moving with Meg was fantastic and we look forward to working with her again in the future!

- Tricia A.

Meg is absolutely incredible. Her high level of expertise and conscientiousness resulted in us moving into our new house a few weeks ago; we couldn't be happier!

When we began the home buying process, we initially had no clue what to we were up against. Thank goodness we had Meg by our side. Turns out that buying a home is a crazy, intricate, emotional rollercoaster. She actually warned us about this in advance. My wife took her seriously but I dismissed the notion. How bad could it possibly be? LOL boy was I in for a surprise.

Here is what we liked best about working with Meg.

  1. She is extremely organized. Might sound cliche, but when it comes to home buying this really matters. Especially when it comes to closing a house, missing one single to-do item could mean losing the house. She was on top of every single appointment, meeting, to-do item, compliance issue, etc etc.
  2. She was optimistically patient. My wife and I got a little crazy at times, particularly after losing a bid on one of the houses we were interested in buying. But her optimism and patience prevailed in the end, because we found a house FAR better than the one we lost.
  3. She knows this housing market extremely well. She actually drove us throughout the city, pointing out pros, cons, and factoids about many neighborhoods where we were interested in moving. She also took us to new neighborhoods we had never considered. As it turned out, we bought a house in one such neighborhood (South Park).
  4. Last but not least, she is fun to work with. You may be surprised at how much time you spend with your real estate agent, both on the phone and in person. The process is far more enjoyable when your real estate is fun to work with.

We would highly recommend Meg to anyone who is buying or selling their house in the Raleigh area; she's terrific!
