“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls-- family, health, friends, integrity-- are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.”
- Gary Keller, Founder of Keller Williams

"My father passed away in February and I'm from central New York and had to settle his estate. Carey McClure was referred to us and made the whole process work. Working on this from long distance she did things above and beyond what her role was and I thank her and Keller Williams for that. She's the best!" - Michael Elliott, Google Reviews

"I bought my home with Adam Hashem in March 2022. I cannot recommend him enough! He was sending me 1-5 homes to review each week and was available after normal work hours to view homes with me. He never missed a single viewing. Adam was incredibly knowledgeable of the homes and the Wilmington area and I would buy another home with him in a heartbeat!!" - Ches Woodall, Zillow Reviews
