We had a great experience with Adam and highly recommend him to home buyers and sellers. He knows a lot about the region’s neighborhoods, builders, market conditions, and so forth, so was a particularly helpful resource to us as out-of-state buyers. He was patient and professional throughout (as we changed our focus several times during the search). He was a good advocate for us throughout the process, but also gave us objective, helpful information based on the market and his experience, to keep our expectations realistic. Months after the transaction closed, he continues to check to see if we need anything. It helps me when I read reviews to have comparisons. My wife and I have together worked with more than ten residential real estate agents over the past 15 years. We would recommend only two of them. One lives in California, and Adam is the other. We highly recommend Adam to Triangle home buyers and sellers.

When we were getting ready to put our house on the market, we were nervous! Not only were we selling “off season” from when the most activity is, we were also listing in the middle of the Great Recession. Worry! Actually, not to worry. After interviewing other Realtors to market and sell our home, Adam came through as the clear choice. Once we were listed on the market, we had our first offer within a week. He not only guided us through the entire process, he also put the “service” in customer service. If I couldn’t be at the house for a contractor to do minor repairs — Adam would be there. We were very pleased with Adam’s attention to detail, responsiveness, and knowledge.We’re not intending to move again for a long time….but I recommend Adam for anyone who is!

Adam Dickinson definitely listens to his clients and leverages his network to provide customer-driven results. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a real estate agent and I feel confident you will not be disappointed with his services.
We were 1) clueless and 2) incredibly picky during our home search last year, and Adam was extremely informative, helpful, and patient throughout the process. Not to mention, he really went to bat for us during negotiations with sellers and, once we had a contract, during our inspection process. There were definitely times when Adam steered us away from bad decisions that, had we made them, would have meant less work and a larger commission for him–those were the times when I knew we’d found a good advocate. I’d definitely recommend giving Adam a buzz and seeing if he would be a good fit for you.

Thanks, Adam, for making our first home purchase so easy and enjoyable. We are very grateful for your continued advice and support; your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed. We love our new-to-us house, and will continue to recommend you to all of our friends!
Elisabeth & Revere, Durham
We thought we knew what we wanted. Adam was on the case, showing us match after match. He was rather patient despite our frequent 180 degree turns. Once we finally found that house that we wanted and made an offer, however, we discovered how daunting the process really could be. But we had Adam. His terrific initiative, amazing knowledge of old houses and his never-waning optimism kept the process on-track, despite a very tight schedule and overseas travel that ended just ten days before our closing. Shika, Baci and Whirl (our dogs) didn’t notice any of this but they sure do love their new backyard and house–so do we. Thanks, Adam!!”

We knew from the first time we spoke to Adam that he was going to be a great asset as we attempted to sell our home and purchase another. He is kind, considerate, punctual and responsive. He is knowledgeable about the world of real estate and current market conditions. He has a great sense of humor! All of these traits combine to really ease the stressors that accompany all real estate transactions. Adam has exceptional people skills, able to work through the positive and negative emotions that inevitably surface for the buyer and the seller. For us, he was able to successfully broker understanding between the sellers of the home we wanted and establish reasonable terms for the house we were selling. Thanks to Adam, we were able to sell our 10 year old home in a low interest time of year (November) for a decent price in the worst of market conditions. Meanwhile, Adam facilitated the purchase of our dream home! All of this in a matter of 8 weeks! Now, that’s a miracle. We credit Adam with accomplishing these arduous tasks for us- and we are so grateful! We highly recommend Adam Dickinson as the best choice for anyone who wants to sleep soundly while trying to move. Thanks Adam!

Client –focused and incredible expertise of the local market – this for me personifies Adam Dickinson. My wife and I consider ourselves most fortunate to have selected Adam as our buyer’s agent. We were first-time home owners and the prospects of buying a home were daunting. Thanks to Adam’s advice in terms of the market, understanding the value of properties and working with us to truly find what met our expectations, we were able to make an informed decision and find the ideal place to live. Adam was also extremely helpful in setting us up with vendors which was a huge stress-reliever.

We used Adam on a recommendation from a close friend. We were moving from out-of-state and I was 8 weeks post-partum. We had exactly 4 days to find a house. Adam talked us through potential neighborhoods, school districts, and our “must haves/don’t wants” in the weeks before we arrived. We had planned 2 days of house hunting but it became clear after the first day (15 homes) that we would need more time.Adam was extremely helpful throughout the process. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about real estate in the Durham/Chapel Hill area but he was able to offer advice and feedback about local laws (i.e. could we add a deck), things to avoid (e.g. some faulty piping that is common in some homes), and also possible construction feasibility (he has background in general contracting). His feedback was helpful and not pushy, it was very informative and appropriate.
We ended up doing 4 days of house hunting with Adam on basically no notice. He cleared his schedule as best he could for the next few days and showed us house after house as we narrowed down our needs. We ended up selecting a house basically on the way to the airport on our last morning. He then spent the next few days negotiating for us. The sellers had some stuff they wanted (certain appliances, etc.) and he advised us how to work around those things in terms of making a fair offer.
On the day of closing, we met Adam for a walk-through. It became apparent that the previous owners had accidentally taken the mirrors in the bathrooms. Within 10 seconds, Adam was on the phone rectifying the situation and they brought the mirrors to the closing.
Adam was so helpful from start to finish and we will definitely recommend him to friends and will use him again!

As first time home buyers my fiancé and I were new to the process of shopping for a house. We had talked to a few realtors of houses we were interested in when we met Adam. He was almost as excited for us buying our first home as we were. He was easy to work with and was very patient with our multitude of questions. He walked us through the entire process and was able to turn our first house shopping experience into the purchase of our first home.Megan & Willoughby, Durham
