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.

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!

Jane Parrish -

As Buyers, Basnight Garner represented us always with our best interest at heart.  During on time with them, looking at numerous properties, they were educating us on the true value of the property – never pushing us to up one offer to complete the sale or increase the commission.  In fact, during one negotiation they cautioned we were offering too much!  And, they were right!  When we did reach a deal, they handled everything, from home inspection, survey to getting the necessary permits for future construction.  We did not even have to attend the closing in person.  Basnight Garner are the BEST!

Sharon helped me with my beach property in 2013. She was very helpful and I highly recommend her for knowledge and professionalism. She goes the distance for you .

Jean Allred, Burlington, NC

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.

Bill & Grace Sealey -

Sharon and her team were absolutely astounding through the entire process. We initially were looking for a house and as our needs changed they guided us every step of the way, even though our final purchase was significantly lower than our initial idea. They treated us as if we were a million dollar customer in all phases of the process. I will most assuredly recommend them to every person I know is looking for a home.

John and Beth Curtis

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.

John & Kathy Connolly -

This was a great and wonderful company to work with.  Sharon is awesome to work with.  This is the third time we have used her.

Basnight Garner Real Estate proved to be very helpful in assisting my wife and I in locating our new get away home on the crystal coast of North Carolina. The agency worked with us from day one in investigating our options and presenting us with locations that fit our needs. Most importantly, they took time to understand what we were looking for and used their knowledge to find the best possible location and price for us. The entire team worked with us all the way through closing and was very professional, responsive and through in helping us with due diligence. Their personality and local knowledge made the entire home buying experience a pleasure for both of us. I would highly recommend the Basnight Garner Real Estate team to anyone interested in buying a new home in coastal North Carolina.

Eddie Stocks

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.

Linnette Mountford

I want to write a thanks for the way Basnight Garner treated me and the way they have helped me on the sale of my home at Branch Drive. You all have treated me with the greatest respect and attention during the sale of my place. I hope you all continue to treat your customers like you treated me. Carteret County is the best place to live in the USA to me. I have enjoyed over the many years and lived here to see it grow. I know you all will be a credit to your company, good luck and keep up the good work on all you do!

Timothy E. Penny -

This team is one of the best teams I have worked with and look forward to working with them again. Very professional and proactive with a superb knowledge of the Coastal area!

202 S. 13th Street, Morehead City, NC 28557 -

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!!

Marshall L Gurley Sr.

Basnight Garner Real Estate has been professional from the listing through the sale of my condo.  Crystal DeKoning, Closing Coordinator, was a great asset in getting corrected disclosures to me before closing.  Carol went above and beyond duty to ensure everything was ready on time for the closing.  She even had to do the final walk through herself and went out of her way to pick up my check to get it overnighted to me since the buyer’s attorney was slow in responding.  The extra mile was made by Basnight Garner Real Estate and is greatly appreciated.

Twila Drew

Well informed about proper steps required by real estate commission regarding representing their clients.  Very knowledgeable about the area and available properties, this was most important to us. Sharon is known and knows the area real estate agents making it easier to get info on all listings and their status. She makes herself available to her clients always.  Returns phone calls immediately.

Bill & Jenny Ruffin -

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!

Ginny & Keith Killinger -

Sharon of Basnight Garner was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and generally provided a very positive experience. I was able to list and sell and close on my property within 3 months. I would definitely use their services again and highly recommend Basnight Garner.

Roxanne Kiefer

The whole experience could not have been better... the personal caring attention received by all the great folks at Basnight Garner Realty. Carol was absolutely outstanding and helped make the listing, sale and closing a joy. Sharon could not have been better as she expertly guided the buyer's side to insure all aspects of the sale was smooth. A true 5 star team!!

William & Ann McMurray -

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.

David & Suganthi Rendall

In my 47-year real estate construction and development career, I have never encountered such broad spectrum skill as laudable as those exhibited by your agency. I attribute much of that to female superiority in this particular game and frankly most other human endeavors.

David Sledge

It was a pleasure working with Lauren on the purchase of my house. She was always available and willing to help! She was always patient and answered my questions especially with this challenging property. Thank you.

Amy Lewis -

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

The entire team of Sharon Garner was terrific! No problems! Sharon and her team spent many hours in four months with us inspecting houses for sale until we found just what we were looking for. We would highly recommend Basnight Garner Real Estate if you are looking for a company that has deep  experience and in depth market savvy

George Walls

Sharon Garner Thompson and her team did an amazing job selling our home. We relocated halfway across the country and left a fully furnished home with all of our personal possessions behind. Sharon or her assistant were present for each and every showing. She handled routine maintenance for us by helping coordinate the appropriate people and stayed to watch over work being done. Crystal DeKoning went above and beyond her closing coordinator duties by attending closing on our behalf and coordinating a personal banking transaction on our behalf that was needlessly complicated by a stubborn local attorney! This was our fourth real estate transaction that Sharon represented us. We wouldn’t consider another agent!

Wade and Kelly Miller -

My husband, Jim Platt and I are extremely pleased with your company. Carol was awesome with our purchase of 200 Bogue Drive last September. Our experience with Crystal was seamless and awesome as well. We loved Morehead City so much we asked Carol to keep us in the loop for homes we want to turn into vacation rentals – and within four months of buying our first house, Carol put us with Lauren who assisted us in buying the cutest 1932 bungalow in The Promise Land. We were so impressed with Lauren’s professionalism as well. We love y’all at Basnight Garner Real Estate and will definitely recommend you. Kindest regards.

Mollie and Jim Platt -

Sharon and the team were wonderful to work with. Someone was always available to answer any questions and help line up estimates for repairs. We have listed a home with them after purchasing through them and have received the same great experience selling as we did buying. We highly recommend them!

David Zeph

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!!

We want to thank the team for their exceptional work during the sale and closing of our property. A special shout out to Crystal for going above and beyond with almost daily updates of their progress. We would definitely recommend Basnight Garner for your real estate needs. Thank you for my beautiful new coffee table book. It is a beautiful addition to my home.

Jack and Pat Garnier -

My wife and I have worked with Carol Basnight on 2 separate real estate transactions…the purchase of a home in Swansboro and the purchase of a condo at Pebble Beach. We have found Carol Basnight to be an extremely competent real estate professional, based on the following: ·Her general knowledge of the real estate market is excellent ·Her reliability and predictability are outstanding ·She does what she promises to do…without exception ·Is very effective in communicating her clients position during negotiations ·Acts as a strong advocate in support of clients negotiative position ·Provided valuable information in support of client’s negotiative position Both I and my wife are impressed with the support provided by Carol and we have, and will continue to do, recommend her services to friends and associates

Ed Winkler

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 the 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!

Jean Allred

Listed Friday, sold Wednesday! What more needs to be said! and thanks for the book!

Jim Thompson

Thank you so much for all your help over the last year in helping us find the right home.  You are a special person and we really appreciate everything you have done for us.

Jeff & Cathy Batten -

Words to describe Carol, Sharon, and Crystal – Informative, Knowledgeable, Caring, Hard working. In other words, a Rea Estate Group who is tops, in my opinion.

Barbara Barlow

Really enjoyed working with Sharon. Such a professional organization. From offer to closing in less than two weeks. Our dream property! Wow! We will finally have our own water view.

David & Robin Fusiak -

Thank you, Sharon, Brendan, and Crystal. You have restored our faith in Realtors. Your integrity and professionalism are outstanding and has been cherished in our home buying experience. We would sincerely recommend the Basnight Garner team as a highly moral and knowledgeable group. No phone call went unanswered or unreturned, no email went unanswered or unreturned and all questions were fulfilled. The passion your team has shown made this experience a fantastic event. Thank you so much for everything.

Charlie, Becky, & Claire Bartley - Salt Lake City, UT

Thanks so much to the whole team and Sharon Garner for selling my property. The wonderful photos, professional guidance, and finding the right buyer made the transaction easy at a very difficult time in my life. I am grateful. Wishing all at Basnight Garner health and happiness in 2018! I will treasure my photobook forever. Many thanks for a thoughtful gift.

Pallas Teer

Our experience with Carol and Sharon was superb. From initial planning through final negotiations we were expertly advised and assisted. They are the best. Our team (Carol and Sharon) could not have been more helpful – beginning with their first visit in our condo. They instructed us how to prepare our home for it to be shown and they encouraged us by telling us they felt that our place would sell quickly and it did! Thank you so much for the beautiful book. It is a treasure.

Joe and Sarah Ellen Archie

Thank you, Crystal & Sharon! Hopefully this was one of the easier real estate transactions you had to manage, but not without a challenge or two. I appreciate the communication and updates along the way and follow through to ensure everything was completed. Until the next time we have the chance to do this again….

Arnold Lynch

I was so impressed with everything that the Basnight Garner team did. They were honest, hard-working, and tried to advise me on how to get the best price for my home. They reassured me when I started to worry about the home-selling experience and listened attentively when I was feeling scared and anxious about moving. I sold our home, with their help, in less than 2 months! Great work, group! Thanks for all your help! (especially, Carol and Sharon!)

Jean Haggar

The Basnight Garner Real Estate is a team of professionals who supported and advised us through the entire process from listing to closing! Carol, Sharon and Billie Esther and their team were fabulous to work with and we consider as friends moving forward. Thank you for representing our interests well and being patient through the difficult process of letting go.

Hank Terrie Hutaff -
