    Sandy was very thorough and helpful in all manners regarding the sale of our house. She was very professional and friendly in all of our dealings. She was awesome at answering all of our questions. Given the need/opportunity in the area to deal with real estate, we would choose Sandy as our agent again. ~ Heather Williams
    Sandy handled the sale of our home very professionally. We are living out of State and needed someone to be hands on and represent us as we could not be there in person. She made this so easy for us, thank you! ~ Barb, Hampstead
    Sandy Thornton was great throughout the whole process... always keeping us updated. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and always available to answer our questions.

    Sandy is amazing to work with. She responds immediately and is extremely knowledgeable of the market. I trust her intuition and have worked with her in the buying and selling of my last 3 homes in the Wilmington area. I would highly recommend her to anyone. ~ Heleana Stolfer Wilmington, NC
    My parents went through Sandy when they purchased their home and loved her. So naturally we also went with Sandy. We already had a relationship with her going into the process that made it very simple. She was also efficient and professional. She was very knowledgeable of the area and would help point things out that the everyday person might not notice during a walk through. She has the respect of her peers and performs her job as if shes a member of your own family. She was available night or day and we couldnt have been happier. Thank you Sandy! Sandy made sure to show us homes that met what we were looking for. We didnt drive back and forth to the locations either. She mapped it out where we went to the furthest first and then made our way back so no time was wasted. She knew the area, the county lines, and was able to get us a builders credit to help with closing or whatever we wanted. Simply amazing! Once you meet Sandy youll understand why we picked her. She is all of the above x 100. Sandy has turned into a good family friend. We love her as a person and anyone who chooses to work with Sandy will too. ~ AA/MS Rocky Point NC
    Great service, very helpful throughout the process. ~ Josh
    Sandy was my realtor for my first house I bought and helped sell my last two homes we lived in. We keep calling her because she knows her stuff and gets things done. She is straight forward but nice to work with. I have recommended her to any friends that needed a realtor and would continue to do so. ~ Christy Folta, Wilmington NC
    Sandra did an outstanding job selling my home. She was very efficient with what was need to sell quickly and at the correct market value. ~ John Loureiro - Raleigh
    Sandy Thornton was outstanding! She hit the ground running with a marketing plan and had really great pictures taken of the property. She was professional, communicated well, and always followed-through. I would work with Sandy again and would recommend her to friends and family! ~ Andrew Mueller, Washington DC
    I was introduced to Sandy when I purchased the home as a USAA recommend agent. She kept in contact over the years and appeared to maintain a costumer relationship so I gladly asked for her support out of trust when it came to selling the house. Everything went smoothly with the sale of the home. The only issue was my anxiety on the sale especially since I wasnt in the local area. There was no need to worry because Sandy ensured everything proceeded as planned. ~ Matthew - California
    Sandy is wonderful to work with. Took the time to understand our wants and went above and beyond to find the perfect piece of property for our retirement home ~ Chris Duncan Statesville, NC
    Sandy ensures that everything went smoothly despite the current restrictions on our travel. She arranged two inspections with the builder and went through the house with us, remotely, several times. We would happily recommend her to anyone else looking for a knowledgeable and straight shooting realtor with your best interests in mind. ~ PB Martin
    Sandy was incredible! She guided us in so much information about the area and local attractions and helped every step of the way with purchasing and building our home. Each moment was a breeze because we had her in our corner. Thank you so much Sandy! ~ Margo Lewis, Rocky Point, NC
    We didnt plan on using sandy as a realtor but she was able to dual agent and she did a great job ~ Casey Postema
    Sandy Thorton was great! We were not familiar with the area. She gave us a tour and helped us pick the perfect neighborhood. She was very quick to respond, always put us and our needs first, and still to this day helps us when we have questions. She was very knowledgeable and we would recommend her to our family and friends because she made a stressful transition less stressful. ~ The Messicks at Everetts Creek
    A+++! We would absolutely use Sandy again for our next purchase if we get stationed in NC. She made us feel like family. We had worked with Sandy to purchase our home and had a wonderful experience. We knew we were going to use her again when it came time to sell. Before listing our home for sale, we used it as a rental property and we periodically asked Sandy for advice on when to sell. She always looked out for our best interest and gave us sound guidance. This was our 5th home buying-selling experience. ~ Jordan Baldueza, Houston TX
    Sandy is a very experienced agent. She is super familiar with the area and was able to locate my wife and I a home. ~ Jason McCrady, holly ridge
    Sandy was truly excellent in all the attributes we wanted in a selling agent, including being patient with us and thick-skinned. Her experience in the local market was evident, and she gave us good advice based on it. She also handled well the interactions with the buyers agent and their inspector. We would and have used Sandy again and will recommend her. In fact, she was our buying agent for the new house we just bought. ~ D. Crawford, Holly Ridge
    Sandy is the best! Shes knowledgeable, kind, responsive, and diligent. Would highly recommend! ~ Veena Gosai, DMD
    Sandra Thorton went above and beyond to accommodate us. She's very personable and extremely easy to work with. We never felt pushed into any decision throughout the entire process, we always felt that we had the last say-so which was very important to us considering previous experiences with other realtors. We would highly recommend Sandy to others and would love to work with her again if ever needed. ~ Brianna & John - Holly Ridge, NC
    Sandy was incredibly helpful and patient while I was trying to figure out the process. Polite, knowledgeable, and professional. The best compliment I can give is I'd use her again and recommend her to friends. Great job! ~ Lewis Fenton
    Sandy Thornton demonstrated the skill and expertise to ask pertinent questions, understand customer needs and desires, and developed presentations of properties that exceed the expectations for both my wife and me. She unquestionably delivered the best buying experience possible. And just as importantly, she is a very nice person. Your exceptional employee is a gem. Please treat her as you would a treasure. ~ Paul Andercyk, Holly Ridge, NC
    Sandy Thornton performed exceptionally well within our constrained schedule to make the sale of our house happen on the timeline we needed. We would absolutely recommend her. ~ Humberto Mena, Sneads Ferry
    Sandy provided timely, consistent, and professional service through out the entire process of selling our home. I worked with Sandy ten years prior in the purchase of the home and her outstanding service left know doubt that we wanted to have her involved in the sale of home. Even with a hurricane impacting the area and the home having to come off the market for repairs, Sandy remained helpful and committed. Sandy is a complete professional and understands the clients needs and really possesses a wealth of knowledge in regards to the area real estate market. ~ Brice, Navarre, FL
    Sandy handled demands of our buyers with professionalism and went to bat for us in regards to the many things they wanted done after we agreed to move up the closing date for them several times. She was great to have in negotiating the terms in which we were selling our home and she really knows how to handle demanding buyers . We appreciated her support through this process . We were so glad to have her expertise and experience in the closing of our sale . ~ Jenny Edwards Hampstead NC
    Sandra Thornton was fantastic at understanding our needs and working with our hectic schedule to help us get to closing. She was knowledgeable of the area and the specific neighborhoods we were interested in. I would absolutely recommend Sandy because she made our home search and purchase experience very easy for us and it was a pleasure to work with her. ~ Humberto Mena, Sneads Ferry
    Sandy is a phenomenal agent. We have worked with her to purchase two homes and sell one and she did an amazing job each time. When buying, she listened to what our needs were and was able to give us valuable feedback on neighborhoods to help in the decision making process. She took time to get to know us and only showed us homes that would work for us, saving us a lot of time. The most recent home we purchased, we bought from overseas with only a video tour of the home and neighborhood. That is how much I trust Sandy. I knew that if she felt the house was a good home and fit for us, she would be honest with us. We could not be happier with our purchase. She handled literally everything for us and we were thrilled when we walked in the home for the first time. I would recommend Sandy to anyone looking to buy or sell. She sold our previous house in one day thanks to her advance marketing and the phenomenal pictures she took. She showcased it beautifully...I just can't say enough wonderful things about Sandy. She is simply the best! ~ Meredith D, Hampstead, NC
    We were assigned Sandra Thornton by USAA Banking Services. We were pleasantly surprised at how she was able to point us in the right direction for our purchase, not trying to influence us one way or another. Sandra also was very helpful in our negotiations with the seller. All in all, she was an excellent agent, in our corner. ~ Bonnie Peterson, Jacksonville, NC
    Sandra was very helpful and gave me and my family very good options that fit our needs. She was quick and efficient when it came to viewing homes and handling paperwork. I'm sure it would be a pleasure for anyone to work with her when searching for their new home. ~ Patrick K. Rocky Point
    After using Sandy to purchase our house in 2012, we knew we could trust her to sell 6 years later. Especially being stationed out of the country in Puerto Rico and starting the process soon after Maria hit, we always knew we had the best with Sandy. ~ Oscar and Jazzmin Lucin
    As a Military Family during a busy PCS season, Sandy made the sale of our house extremely painless. Most of the closing was done with me out of the area and it could not have gone better. Thank you, Sandy. ~ Danilo Garcia, VA
    Sandy was very knowledgeable about the property locations and quirks (we were looking for a second home/rental). She was able to navigate quickly through the numerous questions we had and was patient with us. Not knowing the North Carolina real estate process was a problem for us but she was able to either answer our questions, or get the answers very quickly. We were able to negotiate a contract for our property very quickly with her help, and that was done by phone, text and email. I have already recommended Sandy to one of my clients, and would do so for any family or friends that might need her services. Thank you Sandy for helping us with making our dream come true! ~ Ken and Donna Yeager, North Topsail Beach, NC
    From the beginning Sandy was excellent on communication and time management. She came to our house, and spoke About how she planned on marketing our home. We felt very confident from day one. We had a dream date we would love to close on- and she HIT that date right on the head- for the price we wanted. It was a dream. Highly recommend Sandy to all. ~ Herrera family, Holly Ridge
    Sandy was an excellent broker. She was friendly, available and most of all resourceful, providing in depth knowledge, tips, and a plan for selling our home. Her recommendations allowed us to sell our home quickly. We sold our home in less than 1 week from having listed! She had communicated with other realtors that our home would be available, had multiple showings in the first 5 days and then we received several offers for our home. She handled all phases of selling our home, negotiations, and closing with great ease. She was always available to answer our questions and great attention to the many details of contracts. Great! Would highly recommend Sandy to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in Hampstead. It was very positive experience. Would highly recommend Sandy Thornton and the team at Century 21. ~ Gretchen Sanders, Hampstead, NC
    Moving is always stressful, especially so in the military. Sandra's knowledge of the local area as well as close familiarity with the VA approval process made our transition from overseas as smooth as it could be! She came highly recommended through our mortgage broker and rightfully so. Her experience and working relationships within the real estate community most certainly set Sandra apart from her peers. We are lucky to have been able to work with Sandra and would highly recommend her services! ~ Andrew, Sneads Ferry
    Sandy took the time and showed every house that we were interested in. She even took the time out of her weekends to come help us. Thanks Sandy!! ~ Orin Gress, Hubert NC
    Sandy was there for us through two builds in three years. She was ever patient, understanding, and always supportive! If we ever buy again--shudder the thought--we'll definitely call on Sandy again! ~ Dan Price, Wilmington, NC
    Sandra Thorton was available, knowledgeable, kind, and easy to communicate with. She answered any and all questions and concerns my wife and I had. Even when there were issues with closing, she did everything she could to keep us informed and our minds at ease. I would highly recommend going with her for any of your real estate needs! ~ Nick Bernatowicz, Sneads Ferry
    Sandra Thornton was a pleasure to work with.she was caring kind understanding professional and did everything she could to make this purchase of my new home completely easy and pleasurable taking stress away from me and allowing this process to go as smoothly as a possibly could. I would recommend Sandy and Century 21 highly to anyone that was looking to purchase a home in North Carolina. she was truly a blessing ~ Jennifer Biediger
    I am going to be always greatful for the service and experience of working on this home with Sandy. Excellent service ~ Bryan Holly Ridge
    Sandy went above and beyond to make this sale by offering $1000 of her commission towards the sale of the home. She also went by the house every few weeks for the last three months it was on the market to ensure the stray cat that was eating in my garage (and had been for the last few years) had fresh water and food. And, to further her dedication, she put me in touch with her friend who lives nearby in order for me to be reunited with the stray cat who now lives with me. Great job Sandy! She represents her clients well, provides great advice and is also an effective negotiator. I would definitely recommend Sandra Thornton as a realtor! ~ Lynn O'Briant, Mebane NC
    Upon meeting with Sandy Thornton, I could see that we would work very well together. She is very straightforward and direct. I loved her approach! ~ Lynn ~ Hampstead, NC
    Sandy has stuck with me through buying, selling, buying, selling and buying again. I think that my file is probably the biggest on her desk for as much as I dragged her around the city over the years. She has always been informative, patient and kind. She has treated me with nothing but respect in every stage of the process and every stage of life that has come with it. She has been there to walk me through some wonderful and some stressful times and I would never work with anyone else. ~ Heleana, Wilmington, NC
    Sandy Thornton is very professional and knowledgeable about the marketing and sales process. She is familiar with the mechanical systems of a home when it comes to repairs. Most important to me, she is always available and returns calls and emails amazingly fast! ~ Eric Phillips, Wilmington, NC
    We used Sandy to both buy and sell our house. She was so helpful and patient, answering all our questions and taking the time to sit down with us. Her knowledge and experience made everything go quickly and smoothly. We recommend Sandy to everyone! ~ Bethany Margolies
    Sandy is hands-down the best realtor we've ever dealt with. We are so happy to have found her. Being new to the area and moving from out of state we needed a realtor who not only knew the area, but knew how to deal with various builders and represent us for our best interests. We needed someone who understood our needs and wants which were very particular. Sandy did all that and more. She really knows her market and all the players involved well enough for us to make educated decisions. She was always available at any time and would take the time to have lengthy conversations to guide us in our process. She really makes you feel like you are her only client and took a very personal approach to it all. She takes care of everything and even deals with sometimes unpleasant conversations so we didn't have to. The biggest compliment I can give to her is the comfort that we won't have to search for a realtor in the future. No question we will ask for her help again if and when we need a realtor. We feel this has also fostered a friendship I believe will continue. ~ Jeff and Kim Hetzer, Hampstead NC
    My recent experience with Sandy Thornton was outstanding. Being an out-of-state seller her knowledge, performance and expertise was able to take care of all the details to make sure the home was ready to be shown to potential buyers. Her warmth and caring personality made this difficult transition easier. Thank you and continued success to Sandy Thornton and Sweyer & Associates. Leona Prednis Estate of Joseph Yurish Very satisfactory Her performance was well over 100% ~ Leona Prednis/estate of Joseph Yurish Wyoming PA
    Sandy was awesome as always. We had previously used her to buy the home & she did a great job then & knew we had to use her again to sell our home. She was very knowledgable about the market & what it took to sell our home quickly, which was really important to us as we was moving to another state. I would alway recommend Sandy to friends & family as I know she would look after them as she did us! Thank you so much Sandy :) ~ Ryan & Brooke Speed
    Sandy was a great help to me in finding my first home. She is extremely knowledgeable and educated me on things I didn't know or understand. I would recommend considering her as a realtor for your home shopping. ~ Jessica Whitley Wilmington
    Sandra Thornton helped us sell our townhouse and purchase a single family home. We began looking at our house a few months before actually moving forward with the sell of our townhouse. Sandy helped us make the decision to move forward by providing comparisons for both the sell and purchase, showing us the new home multiple times & taking so much time to answer questions and discuss all the possibilities (including the new home's interior design). Her responses were always quick, clear and honest. We had complete faith in her abilities and felt like she helped us get the best possible deal on both sides. In the end, we did not think of her as our realtor, but as our friend. Thank you so much Sandy! ~ Rachel & Wes, Burgaw NC
    Sandy is a true professional and an expert at what she does. Professional, knowledgeable, calm, concise, prompt, responsive, funny, warm. We were lucky to have her sell our home. Working with Sandy was fantastic! We got the results we wanted/needed and she pretty much made it effortless on our end. The sale of this house was truly one of the smoothest, easiest, non-frustrating real estate transactions we've ever had. Being out of state and selling a rental property (with tenants) was expected to be daunting. It wasn't. Sandy not only took care of every detail - professionally and expertly, she was always several steps ahead and kept things moving along to meet our very tight time frame. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, super responsive, and an overall very friendly and pleasant person to work with. She explains things thoroughly and clearly - but doesn't over explain. She kept it simple and always maintained such a calming demeanor. I don't think we would have accomplished what we needed to with another agent. We really can't thank her enough, and would highly recommend her. Our only regret is that (living in Boston) we can't hire her to sell our primary residence. ~ Aleta & Michael Bransfield, Massachusetts
    Read nothing but great comments from others that Sandy worked with and everything was so true! She is an example of an outstanding agent. Sandy was right with you from the very beginning making the entire process at ease. I can not say how thankful I am for Sandy. You do not need to look any further Sandy is the right agent for you! Trust me. ~ Alan. Wilmington, NC
    Her husband was my realtor. When he died sandy assumed his position with out hesitation. I respect and admire her commitment. She became a close family friend and I will definitely refer anyone to her. ~ Josh S. J-vile, NC
    As a military family moving has to be one of the most stressful things that we face. Sandy Thornton was such a blessing to my family and I! She trudged through fields helping us pick out the perfect piece of land for our home. While we were still in California she was always popping in on our property providing us with updates. She greeted us as soon as we made it here in Hampstead with welcoming arms. She did and continues to refer us to the best local places for whatever needs arise. Sandy also made it a point to be at every single meeting and went to bat for us at all cost. She definitely went above and beyond in all aspects and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. She continues to follow up with us and doesn't hesitate to answer any questions or at the very least point us in the right direction. She is a huge asset to us and I can not express enough how grateful that we are to have her in our lives! ~ The Kahalewai's, Hampstead, NC
    Sandy was always very professional and wonderful to work with. She addressed any questions or concerns immediately and she is extremely knowledgeable of this entire area. I highly recommend Sandy Thornton. ~ Joan Grasso, Hampstead NC
    Sandy was everything you could ask for in an agent. She made our journey to sell our house very easy. I would recommend Sandy to anyone buying or selling a house in the Wilmington area!! ~ Michelle Mueller, Greensboro
    Sandy took the time and interest to figure out what was best for us. She was willing to work with us over a long period of time viewing many different properties in different areas until we sorted through all the options to decide what would be the optimum house and location for us. She is a lot of fun to work with but also very dependable on the business end. ~ Karen, Wilmington
    We love Sandy. We were dealing with a less than motivated seller that didn't want to use a realtor. We really wanted THIS house, so Sandy's hands were a bit tied. Since I was buying from out of state, I felt I really needed someone in my corner. Sandy was perfect in that role. Communication was excellent. We now consider her to be as much a new friend of the family, as well as our realtor. Sandy is still helping us navigate our move to the area, even after the sale. True customer service is greatly appreciated. Century 21 is very lucky to have her and I have already recommended her to one of our new neighbors who is trying to sell with another agency. I cannot think on one negative aspect of Sandy. As near to perfect as we could expect under the circumstances. ~ Kevin Fink, Baltimore Md, now Hampstead NC
    I saw a listing of Sandy's and contacted her. After speaking with her on that listing she helped me to locate other listings within our criteria. We made arrangements to travel to NC from NH on a specific day/weekend and Sandy arranged for us to view several listings during our visit. She was extremely pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. She has been wonderful throughout this entire experience, despite losing her husband during the process. She has gone out of her way to help me set up contractor visits to the house and has provided me with names of insurance companies, and local agencies. If it wasn't for Sandy we may not have made a purchase in NC. ~ Robert and Robin Rainville Pembroke NH
    Sandy worked with us to buy a house while we were stationed at Camp Pendleton in California. She worked tirelessly to find us the right home. She took videos and pictures, she facetimed with us and called or texted us often to let us know how the process was going. We bought our home site-unseen and we couldn't be happier. Sandy was patient, hard working and tireless throughout the process. Choose Sandy! ~ Joe Roberts, Holly Ridge, NC
    I accidentally chose Sandy because I thought I had dealt with her the previous year. Sandy was phenomenal. She exceeded my expectations and I am so glad I accidentally found her. I would and will highly recommend her to anyone that I find that is looking for a home in the area. Sandy responded quickly to any e mails and communication I sent to her and she always had or got the information I was requesting. If anyone is looking for a personable, helpful, knowledgeable, buyers agent that is all about trying to do the best she can for you, then Sandy Thornton should be your choice. I have worked with other agents and she by far ensured she gave the best professional advice and the helped negotiate the best deal for my purchase. Based on my interactions with Sandy I am confident she would do the same as a sellers agent also. I give her 5 stars. ~ Micky Khanna North Topsail, NC
    Sandy was very helpful! It was our first buying experience and her knowledge of the area and process was above & beyond. She gave us real life advice that we appreciated. We couldn't have bought a home without her. ~ Emily, Hampstead
    Sandy is a pleasure to work with. She's a true professional who really knows the local market and takes the time to fully understand your family's needs. ~ Barry Dempsey, Hampstead NC
    Sandra is amazing! She is proactive about researching the state of the market and made necessary adjustments to ensure my property always had attention. Not only did she make the sale of my house painless, she also provided numerous recommendations for contractors to maintain my property since I live out of state. Do yourself a favor and choose Sandra to manage your property. ~ Sean, New Hampshire
    Sandy is very knowledgeable, hard working, and pleasant to work with. I would definitely work with Sandy again in the future. ~ Steven Douglas, Wilmington NC
    Sandy made the experience very easy and enjoyable. ~ John Lawson
    She knew her job. Very professional in her work. Knew how to get the job done. ~ Herb Nelke 971 Chadwickshore Dr. Sneads Ferry, N. C.
    Sandy was always available to answer my many questions. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls. She helped stage our house so it would show better. She is very patient and understanding and responded to all our needs. ~ Barbara S Hampstead NC
    Sandy was on top of things from beginning and kept us on task. When we shifted our budget plan a bit she adapted and found us the perfect home. Her advice was timely, practical and direct. She also has a great sense of humor and made what could have been a stressful experience easy. She went above and beyond what she had to do for us and treated us like old friends. We love Sandy and would recommend her to anyone seeking competent, professional and friendly advice. There is no one better. ~ patrick Martin, hampstead nc
    She was very knowledgable on the area and very understanding on what we were looking for. I would definitely recommend her to other home buyers ~ Wesley Reid
    I like to think I am pretty savvy when it comes to real estate, it is my 5th house purchased and my mom was an agent. Sandy Thornton was always a step ahead and could either answer my questions or had requested info to answer my questions before I even asked them When Sandy Thornton knew she would be unavailable for a period of time she ensured she had someone in her office backing her up and could answer any questions Sandy Thornton is the best real estate agent I have ever had, she went above and beyond expectations to take care of my needs. ~ Judy, surf city
    Being first time home buyers, we were a little nervous about the process. After doing some research, we decided to go with Sandy Thornton as our realtor. She had an abundance of great reviews and a lot of experience- exactly what we were looking for. Sandy definitely lived up to those reviews and even exceeded our expectations. Being military, we will one day need to rent/sell our home and Sandy always kept that in mind. She recommended certain areas and features in a home to make that easier for us to do in the future. While looking at homes, she was constantly on the lookout for anything that could be a problem with the house. She spotted things that we never thought to look for. Sandy was always very quick to respond to any questions we had and very accommodating (we did pretty much the whole process while living in a different state). Its obvious that Sandy is not only great at what she does, but loves it too. She would not let us settle for a house we didn't love and now we own the house of our dreams! I would recommend Sandy Thornton to anyone who wants to work with the best of the best and wants a stress-free, enjoyable home buying experience. ~ Ashley Rosenbrock, Jacksonville
    I had worked with her previously and had friends that had worked with her on their house and they highly recommended her. We wanted someone who would work with us instead of hounding us like other companies had tried to do. Sandra Thornton was very professional and friendly and never made us feel pressured. It was a very comfortable relationship and she was very helpful and easy to communicate with. ~ Amanda, Hampstead NC
