It is with absolute pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Marc Iafrate in the purchase of our second home. I can't say enough about Marc's professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge. He can bring these qualities to the table for his clients not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to our new home or community. We first met Marc in the Spring of 2016, when he diligently assisted us in searching for a rental that would be suitable for our family. His attention to detail along with his commitment allowed us to realize that he would be instrumental in us finding a home in the future. Throughout the home buying process, Marc was extremely responsive and thoughtful in his recommendations to us. Marc is with you throughout every part of the home buying process to include making recommendations for just about anything you can think of. To this day, he makes both me and my wife feel as though helping us is his highest priority. We would (and will) recommend you to family, friends, and anyone else that we hear might be looking to buy or sell a house. Thanks again!
Without a doubt Marc is the best Real Estate agent we have ever worked with, beyond that he's probably the best professional service provider we've ever worked with. We had the pleasure of working with him to buy our new house and sell our existing house. From the first time we met him he made us comfortable with the entire process and set excellent expectations for how the process would work from end to end.
Throughout both the purchase and sale he took care of everything and greatly minimized the stress that we had to go through. It was quite a contrast to see Marc's professionalism and work ethic when compared to the agents on the other side of the table at our closings! As further testament to how much we enjoyed working with Marc we were actually quite sad after closing to realize we didn't have any more business to conduct with him. It almost made us want to run out and buy another house!
Steve Riley was great to work with. He was available to show homes at times that worked with my schedule (and I was coming in from out of town for my search, so that was important). Steve was available by phone text and emails and I was often surprised how fast his response was, no matter the time of day. He was conscientious about showing me homes within my price range and location specifications, yet pountinting out realistic expectations and helping prioritize my wish list. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
Last summer, 2016, we made the decision to relocate to North Carolina from New York. When ordering a Raleigh Relocation Guide through the internet, we were put in contact with Marc, who responded with a very welcoming email filled with lots of interesting links and information. In the fall of 2016 we traveled to Raleigh and met with Marc, who was friendly and gracious, taking time to walk us through the lay of the Triangle area, including a video. We were very impressed and received much food for thought. We returned in March of 2017 after having exchanged a number of phone calls and emails with Marc about what properties were available that met our criteria. Through these past eight months or so, Marc has proven to be a very personable, helpful, and informative individual, who has greatly facilitated our developing a relocation plan. With Marc’s able assistance we have been successful in finding a property we both love and are now moving toward completing our relocation by late spring. We feel that we have in Marc not just a realtor, but an advocate, who diligently works in our best interest. We are grateful for having connected with him and for his guidance in this relocation process.
Marc was our realtor for a residential move from out of state. If you need a relocation specialist, look no further! Marc first advised us by providing helpful information about relocation to the Raleigh/Durham area and helped us pick a neighborhood that fit our family and our budget.
Marc knows the entire triangle area well, and could advise on schools, homes with amenities, distances to the RTP, specific homes with the floor plan we wanted, and more. In fact, he knew just when to contact us when a new phase of a home with our specifications was being built. He also gave us great advice about when to sell, then buy.
Integrity, attention to detail, immediate feedback and the term "over deliver” all characterize Marc and the way he conducts business. Marc was an essential part of our search for homes, our choice of homes and even the inspection process. It was a joy working with him. We recommend him highly!
Stephen was a consummate professional. Reliable and trustworthy. He worked diligently to find the home that was just right based on the needs provided to him. Highly communicative and easily accessible. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing the services of a quality real estate agent.
Our family had always lived in Ohio. When we decided to make the move to North Carolina for work, we were very overwhelmed. Marc was amazing to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the areas and extremely patient with us as we explored the various neighborhoods. We really felt like he wanted our family to find the perfect home and worked with us until we did. Thank you Marc for everything! Thanks Marc!!!
To Lisa Wilson and Marc Iafrate I wanted to thank you both for your time when we visited NC last year. Your kindness to accommodate us while we were there was very appreciated. I had a realtor from hickory not be very pleasant to me. Thinking I don't would be an inconvenience because I'm not ready to move until 2018. Both of you didn't care. You just did your best to help us and give us the info we needed; even showed us some nice homes. Hopefully now, I found the right realtor to replace the rude one. This situation just made me think of you both. So just wanted to say ty again. Both of you were awesome.
We have had the pleasure of working with Marc for both the sale of our current home and purchase of our new home, and it has been a wonderful experience! Marc is knowledge, smart, quick to respond and just an all around nice guy. Our plans changed half way through our search and he was quick to adjust and found us the perfect home! We would recommend him to anyone we know and if/when we buy another home, he would be our first call.
We can't thank Marc enough for all the help he has given us in relocating from TN to NC! He has truly helped make our move easier by answering all our questions, giving us information on the surrounding areas, and ultimately helping us find the perfect house. Marc was very easy to communicate with and worked long hours to help us purchase our home! He was very detailed and always on top of things! Marc became a friend to us through this process and went above and beyond to help us. We will definitely recommend him to others who are looking for a home!
Stephen Riley was our broker and he was phenomenal! It had been 16 years since we last dealt with a real estate broker and we were dreading it, but we knew we needed one. Stephen proved all our fears to be wrong. He was on the job 24/7, and he was always looking out for our best interests. Our daughter was starting her Ph.D. at Duke so we knew we were looking at a 5-year(ish) commitment. We wanted a place where she could live and we could stay when we came to visit. Financially, it made sense to buy rather than rent, but we didn't think she wanted to be strapped with home maintenance. Stephen found a condo right on a bus route into campus that was perfect! He was with us every step of the way and even after we closed. He even answered our text questions at midnight! He treated us like we were his only client. Many thanks Stephen!
Steven Riley is an exceptional realtor with the patience, competence, and know how of a true professional. After two home visits, his attention to detail proved valuable in our home search. As a result of his knowledge of the city and surrounding area, our family located the perfect home. I would highly recommend Steven to anyone in the search of a rental or purchase.
Stephen Riley was my real estate agent assisting me in the purchase of a new construction town house in Hillsborough, NC. I was located out of state through the entire construction process until the closing. Mr. Riley periodically drove from Raleigh to Hillsborough documenting the construction progress with numerous labelled photos. He patiently answered my many questions, handled dealings with the builders and inspectors, and greatly helped me through the entire process with his able professionalism.
Marc, you really are one of the best agents I’ve ever met (and I’ve met a lot!). I totally enjoyed working with you and your professionalism is exceptional. I love my new home! Thank you for all of your follow-through efforts to bring this to a close. Looking forward to working with you in the future!!
Steve was the most attentive, organized and personable agent I have worked with! He helped me, more than he knows, to find the most perfect place while under time constraints and high stress. His calm and professional manner proved to be effective and trustworthy. Steve took the time to make me feel comfortable and was very accommodating, even with my children. The agency worked efficiently, timely and helped me find my dream home. Thank you Steve!
We wanted to make a special note of thank you for Marc for all the help he provided to us during our move from New York to North Carolina. He helped us find a rental on the spur of the moment when Mark got a job in the Triangle area. He worked with us on a quick weekend search for an apartment and made sure we knew what was going on. Then when we were ready to look for a permanent home a few months later, he helped us evaluate things and was available to help us sign a contract at a builder on July 4th weekend. During our contract, building and closing process, Marc was with us each step of the way offering valuable advise and insights. Marc made our entire relocation experience smoother and he continues to help us find needed services as required. We would very highly recommend him.
We are thrilled with the professional care that Marc and his team gave us in selling our house. He did a great job of keeping us informed, giving us options, and getting the deal done. We made a good return on our house as well. We feel like Marc positioned us for success. We are grateful to him and recommend his service.
My husband and I are approaching retirement and considering a relocation from Chicago. Steve invested several days exposing us to the Triangle/RTP lifestyle. We not only saw houses but the many cultural & recreational opportunities the area offers. He helped us appreciate the friendliness and diversity of the local residents. He understood that we are not just buying a house but deciding where to spend the best years of our lives. We are completely sold on the Triangle/RTP area and look forward to our next house hunting trip with Steve.
Marc sold our home in Raleigh and we couldn't be happier! He was extremely professional and went the extra mile on everything. We were living in Florida and were unable to be there, but, Marc handled everything for us. He made sure to stop by and check on things on a regular basis during the process and keep us up to date on everything. I don't know what we would have done without him. He made the entire process very smooth and enjoyable. We strongly recommend Marc if you are selling your home or looking to relocate to the area. We look forward to the time we move back to Raleigh and Marc can assist us in a new home search!
Thanks Steve. My family and I really appreciated the time you spent talking with us to understand exactly what we were looking for and connecting with us. We had so little time to house hunt, and you understood the kind of home and neighborhood we were looking for. You nailed it!
Wow! So much to say about Marc and his team at Capital City Real Estate group! After deciding we wanted to do some investments in NC, I found Marc by chance on the internet. From day one his professionalism and knowledge of the area we wanted to invest in was incredible. Our first meeting was just the beginning, he knew after a few houses, exactly what we were looking for. Within a few days and his devotion to us on our short trip to NC, we made an offer on our Town Home before we went back home. Being 2500 miles away I thought was going to be tough but he showed us what his ability's were right away. From starting escrow to final close, even my banking institution was impressed with his attention to details and having his crew right on task to make this process so incredible easy. To top it all off, Marc is now our Property Manager. Again, from making sure our town home is in perfect condition for renting to last minute details and finally screening the best candidates to rent our town home was seamless. We got extremely lucky when we found Marc. Thank you Marc!!
This was my first time using a Realtor for help with finding a rental so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am very happy to say that Steve was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable, patient and kind. With his help, my moving stress was relieved! When I am ready to buy a home, Steve will be called.
My husband and I are currently working with Marc in a relocation move. He is very knowledgeable about the area, very personable and easy to work with, and very patient. He has been very timely in his responses to us and gives detailed information that we requested. He is a great professional person to work with!!
Marc Iafrate, was indispensable in making my relocation to the Raleigh area, (Wake Forest, specifically), smoother and easier than I thought possible. Relocating from out of state has its challenges, as I am sure you know, but Marc was there for my wife and me every step of the way. The result was closing on a house we love in a wonderful neighborhood with Marc handling whatever bumps in the road appeared which relieved us of the stresses that could easily have developed. Marc is a relocation specialist that fully embraces and delivers the perfect client experience.
“My wife and I just wrapped up the home buying process and could not be more pleased with Marc. We moved to the area from Ohio, which adds additional layers to the process. Thanks to Marc's professionalism and guidance, the process went much smoother than anticipated. Marc is very responsive and possesses a wealth of real estate knowledge. Always there when an obstacle presented itself. His excellent service continued beyond the sale, as Marc was there to assist with an issue we faced post-closing. If you are in the housing market in the Triangle Area and need a results oriented, professional real estate agent then Marc Iafrate is your guy.”
We were very pleased with Marc Iafrate and his service. He was fantastic! A complete 180 from the previous agent we had in moving to the Raleigh area. We sold and bought using Marc on both ends and were very happy with the outcomes.
He had multiple outlets of advertising to get our house sold in just a short amount of time without pressuring us to lower our price or give back too much. As for selling, Marc had a tremendous amount of input on every home that we saw or prepped to see. He was very thorough in weeding out any potential problems with homes we thought might meet our criteria. Even though we saw a lot of homes, it could have been a lot more! He took his time with us at each and every property we saw. Not once did we ever feel like we were being pushed into putting down a contract or pushed out of a home we saw. He was even great with our three small children in letting them open the home locks and doors at each property.
One really great side note is that we could tell Marc works for himself and doesn’t have a “team” of people working with him (or against him in some cases we’ve found with other agents). He worked around the clock getting us into our new home. Sometimes calls and contracts would come in late just showing he was focused on helping us after the normal hours. He even placed offers and contracts during his vacation. Marc was fully engaged on just us! We couldn’t be happier with our new home and choosing Marc as our agent. Call us anytime for a reference on Marc!
When starting the relocation process we didn’t know much about the area. With that being said, we turned and relied heavily on Marc Iafrate for guidance and he did not disappoint. Relocating has to be one of the most stressful situations a family can go through. That is why it’s so important to have a true professional like Marc in your corner. Through Marc’s incredible expertise and attention to detail, he was able to make our relocation as stress free as possible. It was apparent right away that Marc wasn’t interested in making a quick sale. Marc wanted to make sure that all of our family’s needs and expectations were met. It was through Marc’s ability to really listen to our needs and ask the right questions prior to us visiting, that we able to make every minute count on each trip to the area. Marc Iafrate is a man of great character and integrity who takes the needs of clients and the role of his firm very serious. He always went above and beyond for our family and for that we are extremely grateful!
We interviewed several realtors before deciding to go with Marc and we were very happy we ended up with him. We actually ended up using him for both buying and selling. From the beginning of the process he is very friendly and patient. He listens to what you want and works hard to help make it happen. He is very responsive and has a good sense of the market. He is detail oriented which helps a lot since there are so many things that go into buying and selling. He also is a good negotiator and makes sure that everything is lined up perfectly. If you are thinking about buying or selling a home in the Raleigh area, I would highly recommend you give Marc a call. I think you will have a hard time finding a better realtor in the area.
Marc was an excellent agent to work with. He was great working with us since we had a 2 year old to drag around with us. Was willing to work with our schedule which was great. HE was also great knowing the area really well and asking the right questions. We definitely made the right choice working with him and love the neighborhood we are in.
Marc has help me and my family with our relocation activities. He is an exceptional person and a great resource. We decided to rent an apartment for now but once we are ready to buy a house, we will not hesitate to contact him.
Marc has so far helped us in the process of selling our current home and buying a new home at the same time. He has always given us good sound advice but also has listened to requests and as made them happen. His word has been as good as gold. We would highly recommend him for anyone who wants someone who listens, is honest, and more importantly is a great human being and not just a "real estate agent".
I got to know Marc through internet searching. Marc helped us a lot before we land in RTP without even meeting us face to face. We finished intensive yet pleasant showing schedule in three days followed by two days offer and negotiation process... with Marc's great help ,within a week we completed what we have planned for two weeks house hunting task. Overall, Marc helped us a lot in finding the right house for our family in RTP area. Marc was very professional and flexible throughout the entire process.. highly recommended!
My husband and I consulted with Marc to help with our move from Pennsylvania to NC. We did not know anything about the area. Marc pointed out important factors that we had not even considered. He carefully asked questions so that he knew what we wanted in our new neighborhood and in our new home. He didn't have any hidden agenda, and he was very patient and helped us within our time frame. He seemed to always be available to help no matter if it was taking extra pictures of a property or negotiating with the seller. He was there to help us, not simply to make a sale and move on. I would highly recommend that you enlist Marc's help, whether you are moving across the country or across town. He's genuinely the best! With his guidance, it was much less stressful
Marc, we just wanted to say (I know, again) Thank You!! We know that you had a prior engagement today, and the fact that you stayed and fought it out for us... we are so very grateful! You are such a wonderful person, and we can't say it enough getting this deal to pull through!
Marc, I saw the article in the News and Observer this morning and wanted to congratulate you. I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award than you. John and I are so fortunate that we were referred to you as our realtor. Your patience is admirable! I truly know that you have earned this award and all the other awards you have received. My Very Best To You!
Marc recently helped us during a house-hunting trip prior to our planned relocation from northern Michigan to the Cary, NC area. We felt that Marc went above-and-beyond the call of duty in working with us. He was well-prepared, on-time and very responsive to our needs. And, through it all, he was a pleasure to be with - we even had fun. We cannot say enough good things about Marc and highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a move to, or within, the greater Raleigh-area.
I have known Marc professionally for some time and I have been consistently impressed by the way he sets himself apart in a competitive industry. Marc has an unparalleled understanding of internet marketing and leveraging social media and is always patient, polite and personable. With all this in mind, I trusted Marc to help my parents list their property. They were amazed by the amount of time he invested in answering their questions and making sure they understood the listing process and the local market. I recommend Marc without hesitation to anyone buying or selling a home in the Triangle.
We wanted to say thank you for all you did for us in regards to our home search. We were first time home buyers so we were a little unsure of the process. You always made us feel like we were your #1 priority.
We appreciated your input and how fast you ALWAYS got back to us 7 days a week any time of the day literally. You helped to make this experience not as stressful.
Marc, we really appreciate everything you have done for us! I can't wait until we can send business your way and hear all about how professional and amazing you were!!
I apologize for the late delivery of our sincere thanks for all the work you did on finding us a home. Words are not adequate enough to express our gratitude for all of the hours you spent finding this house. Your professionalism was evident in the commitment and dedication you demonstrated helping our family reach our goal! Thank you Marc for all you have done for us. Please stay in touch and when the paint dries and the boxes are unpacked we would like to have you and your family over for dinner!
Marc, I was a bit upset that Melissa mailed off the thank you card without giving me a chance for input. Nevertheless, I'm thanking you now. I'm confident that she covered every bit of the wonderful job you did making our home buying experience as stress-free as possible. We both enjoyed your newsletter and if you are in need of customer quotes or references, here is one from Melissa and I: 'Marc not only advertises as a friendly, trustworthy real estate broker, he is the most friendly and trustworthy guy I know.”
As Abi and I sit here in our living room, we think of everything we have been through with you, and its funny to go back and think how getting our home took around a year! Although it may not seem like it during the process, time sure does fly by quickly.
We think about how you were there for us when every little obstacle came across us, and we are so greatly thankful and lucky to have found you. More than a realtor, you have become a friend to us, and that's very important to both of us. We really appreciate and thank you for your patience, and for the support to keep on moving when we didn't have the strength to anymore. We had a difficult time getting approved and we came so close to giving up, but with your guidance, we held through and here we are now, in our nice big home.
Both you and Linda made it all possible for us to own our very own home, and not just any home, a home we never expected to get! We owe you so much, as I know you spent numerous hours, days, and weeks working hard to get us what we wanted. You always went out of your way, and always went that extra mile for us.
When we came across you, we always thought you would just help us find a home, and that was it, but wow, we never imagined you would do so much more than that. I honestly think we would have been so lost, and made so many wrong decisions if it wasn't for you.
We will definitely keep you in our minds, and we hope not to lose touch with you. We will be recommending you every chance we get, and make sure that people know that when it comes to finding a home, you're the one to go to!
Thanks again Marc for everything!!!!!!
Marc was a huge help to us when we relocated to Raleigh from long island. He worked with us for over a year while we finilized our move and then patiently showed us almost every neighborhood in the triangle. He sincerely made our move much easier, we highly recommend him.
Marc did a great job in all aspects throughout the home search / contract / closing process. He was very thorough and on top of everything and answered all of my many questions. We really appreciated Marc's demeanor and felt like he placed getting us in the right home as the top priority, not necessarily just getting us in a house fast. Overall, we could not have been any more pleased with our experience.
