  • Hi Chris - hope all is well and Dorothy and I have been meaning to send you a "thank you" but we've been very busy moving into our new home so this is long overdue. We absolutely love the home and love it here. We've only been here for about 10 days but it's been great. We remember the day we came to see you about 8 months ago to see a bunch of homes and you first showed us what became our future home and none of the other homes stood a chance against it. We still need to go back to Florida to arrange for a mover to bring all of our belongings here. We plan to be back here as full NC residents by the end of July. Thanks again and all the best.

  • Chris is honest, responsive, smart and knowledgeable. We spent only three days with Chris in person, during which he showed us existing homes and then based on our conversations as we toured homes and the community took us to a builder in the community who builds the type of home we want. He has stayed engaged with us throughout the process - offering his advice and providing relevant information as we have gone through the process. We are still in contact with him, having purchased our lot and as we build our home. He is easy to work with, fun and continues to make the whole process a pleasure.

  • Chris Grocott helped us find a great lot in our price range in this crazy sellers' market. He diligently helped us explore St James Plantation making the decision to move easy. Chris is the most responsive and nicest RE pro we’ve ever worked with. Highly recommend.

  • Chris is an absolute pleasure to work with and while he was originally our realtor, he is now our friend. He listened and ensured he understood our goals, requirements and parameters and then directed us to specific solutions including existing home opportunities as well as lot and builder solutions

  • Dear Karen and Chris,
    Thank you sooooo much for all your hard work, patience, and professionalism during my search for a home in St. James. I know it was a long process (over 6 months) but never once did you make me feel like I was being a burden or that I was being unreasonable, for which I cannot thank you enough. When I finally did find the home I wanted, you worked so tirelessly to help me obtain my goal. You provided me with prompt responses to my many many questions, again for which I cannot thank you enough. Overall, you provided me with a home-buying experience beyond even my high expectations. Kudos to both of you!
    Best regards and a heartfelt thank you from a new, happy St. James homeowner.
