Our Clients Speak For Us


“Carol is without a doubt the most diligent and helpful real estate agent we've ever worked with. In addition to being the consummate professional, she is truly as pleasurable a person to be around as you'll encounter. Her tireless efforts and attention were even more remarkable considering the purchase price of the property was under $100,000 - I can honestly say we felt she treated us as if we were buying a $2 million house. I wholeheartedly recommend Carol and Basnight Garner Real Estate Group to anyone looking for property in Carteret County” 

John David Day

When we were looking for an experienced and knowledgeable agent in the Atlantic Beach area, Carol Basnight met and exceeded our expectations. Our goal was finding a home that we could have our extended family and friends come stay with us as well as rent to others to help with our maintenance cost. Carol lead us to the neighborhoods that had good rental history. If we buy again Carol Basnight will be the agent we use!!

Kept me well informed through the whole process of selling my condo.  They let me know when there was a showing and gave me feedback from the showing.  Also showed me on a weekly basis how many on-line inquiries there were for the condo.

A couple of years ago, Sharon helped me purchase my vacation home in Emerald Isle.  I am very pleased with my "little fishing shack" and they way it turned out.  I sincerely thank you for being so helpful in making it happen. I plan to spend as much time on the island as possible!

Our experience with Sharon Garner during the listing and sale of our home was totally positive. Sharon is a true professional and conducted herself with integrity and optimism. Her communication skills and follow-up were stellar and issues were always handled with a great sense of urgency. Sharon is truly an asset to her company and her profession. We couldn't be happier with the process and end result.

We love Carol Basnight! She showed us many houses since we moved to the coast and during that time, we mostly had fun and enjoyed her warm personality and personal integrity. When we found our home (FSBO) she even helped us with that! So, when it came time to list our beach home, we never hesitated in calling in her professional staff to help! The seemed to love our home as much as we did. There were many other realtors we could have called since we lived in another city, but we are convinced that Carol's dedication produced the best possible results. We are still amazed how smoothly things went! These girls from Basnight Garner Real Estate Group made it painless! We are very very grateful. We are just gonna miss her!

I worked with Sharon Garner Thompson remotely for real estate search and purchase. She connected me with local folks to help with home inspection and negotiated needed repairs with the home-owners prior to final sale. She is a wealth of knowledge with wonderful local trades people for anything related to home repair, upkeep, decorating, etc. I highly recommend Sharon to anyone looking for real estate in the area!

A truly professional team and so very easy to work with. I am an ex Real Estate agent and so may be more critical than the average person. Carol was right on top of each step in the closing and her team was right behind her with support. I highly recommend Basnight Garner for anyone who needs Real Estate assistance.

Carol, Alyssa and Heather - Kathy and I can't thank you all enough for ALL you did to sell our home so quickly, in the dead of winter no less! Your patience with me was especially noted. Carol, your keen insight, counsel and predictions ALL came true. Alyssa - Thank you for all the attention to the details and keeping me on task. Heather - Your photos are terrific. Let's be honest here, your photos were better than mine, but you were nice enough to use a couple of mine still! Thanks!

“Sharon has always been very pro-active in her business dealings and not letting anything "slip" or fall through the cracks!  With her knowledge and this particular trait she exemplifies success and can only be a benefit to others as she was for me!!”

Carol & Alyssa, Thank you so very much for sticking with me through my years of searching in NC. You both are wonderful & I feel blessed to have met you both. You have helped us through this long, long, and frustrating & exciting process. Thank you for your guidance & support. You are amazing Realtors and I would not blink to recommend you to anyone looking in the area. Thank you both so very much. I can't wait to go to "my place at the beach"!

Alicia, Andy & Christian Couture

We don't know what we would have done without Alyssa Mayer's help during our entire process of looking and buying a home.  We were looking for the less ordinary home to purchase.  Both of us are on fixed incomes.  We had money to spend on fixing a place up, but not much for a big house payment every month.  Alyssa was there for us every step of the way, always thinking of things that never crossed our minds.  She was always looking out for us.  She was also always pleasant and cheerful, which we appreciated because we were stressed out about half the time.  We are very pleased with our purchase.  Thanks to everyone for the great support and thank you Alyssa for a job well done!

Lucy Baysden

My husband and I worked with Alyssa Mayer throughout a long drawn-out process of acquiring a small cottage on Bridges Street.  The home was in such disrepair that getting a loan proved very difficult.  Alyssa worked diligently to help us every step of the way.  If there was anything she didn't know, she found the answer quickly.  Her communication with us was excellent.  We were just about to give up when Alyssa managed to work out owner financing for us.  The owner ended up selling her property that was virtually unmarketable and we ended up buying the property under much better terms than we anticipated.  

There were many things about Alyssa that impressed me, but what stood out the most is that she worked on this deal as if it were a million dollar home when her commission could not have been much.  We will undoubtedly be using Alyssa for all future real estate endeavors.

Carol, Crystal and the rest of the staff were truly a pleasure to work with. The entire process was handled efficiently and professionally. Carol is a good listener and went the extra mile to match our wants with what was available on the market. She proved to be a steadying influence through the ups and downs of the process by being positive and unwavering in her support. Crystal was extremely attentive and managed the closing process in an outstanding manner. She was very responsive to our many requests and resolved all issues in a timely manner. She is certainly on top of her game. The Basnight Garner Real Estate Group has a good thing going for themselves with an outstanding group of professionals ready and willing to do whatever is necessary to satisfy the customer. We would be honored to serve as a reference.

Thank you so much for the beautiful book you sent us of the Carolina Coast. We will look at if often and enjoy the pictures as they will remind us of the past 35 years when we were at Atlantic Beach.

You were a great agent to work with and both of us would recommend you highly. In fact, I told you I would say you were Carol “Allstate” Basnight as we were in “good hands” always with you. You sold our condo three times in a few months – this is no ordinary feat!

All the best Carol in 2017 – if you need a reference you could always use us.
