    My Client Testimonials

    I first meet Van when I was checking our property corners at our lots at Carolina Beach. He lived next door to our lots and came out and introduced himself. He is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable of the Carolina Beach and Wilmington area. Over a period of six months to a year I tried selling the lots myself and didn't get the results I wanted. I remembered talking to Van and contacted him. He listed our lots and sold them getting what we wanted in price. Everything worked out well and he did a great job for us. ~ Philip Keiser Leland NC
    Thank you for another job well done, Van! ~ Joe & Ellen, Apex

    This is the 6th time we have used Van Coley as our real estate agent, and this experience was just as great as all the prior ones. Van makes himself very accessible promptly handling any questions or issues that may come up during the buying / selling process, and his knowledge about the local housing market is second to none. Even after the property closes and funds disbursed, Van continues to keep in touch making sure that any items that were not completed prior to closing get completed. I am honored to call Van not just our real estate agent, but our friend. Thank you, Van, for another job well done! ~ Joe & Ellen, Apex

    Van Coley is a true expert in the realty industry and are a pleasure to work with! He was always available and was very patient throughout the long process of finding the perfect beach home. His knowledge of the coastal Carolina area was very helpful and important in advising us on the best town community for our family. We appreciated his open and honest communication. We never had to wait long to get a response from Van. He was always on top of everything. Van is very friendly and had our backs working with the lender and closing attorney. We highly recommend Van Coley! ~ Christina, Raleigh
    Van did everything and anything he could to get us the answers to the questions we had! ~ Madrens, OIB
    This is the third property that Van Coley has sold for us in the past 2 years. The first was in Carolina Beach with the last two in Oak Island. Even though he has done a remarkable job for us in the past, he somehow still managed to exceed our expectations by securing an offer within hours of the property hitting the MLS, and then subsequently going under contract for 99.7% of list price in less than 12 hours from the property going live. Van is a hardworking, honest, extremely knowledgeable, and ethical agent. He also possesses the perfect demeanor for when slight hiccups arise throughout the buying or selling process. There is no other agent that we would ever consider using on our real estate deals on the NC coast. Thank you for another job well done, Van! ~ Joe & Ellen, Apex
    Although I had never met Van before this experience, he was friendly and outgoing. Made me feel confident in him and his ability to work with me. ~ Harry Killian, Wilmington NC
    Van Coley has been a huge help throughout the process of searching for a home. He knows the Wilmington area very well and always provides his honest opinion. I trusted Van enough just based on his walk through of a home to make an offer on a home before I even saw it in person. This is the second home I have purchased with this broker and the process was just as great as last time. I highly recommend him! ~ Cassidy B., Wilmington
    Van was quick to respond whenever we contacted him. He genuinely cared about what we had to say. He only showed us houses that meet the criteria we gave him. He had a lot of knowledge about neighborhoods that helped us select the home of our dreams. Closing went so smoothly with Vans help! I would definitely recommend him as a wonderful realtor if you are in the market for buying or selling a home. ~ Rosemary Southport NC
    We (my fiance and I) were looking for a large house for our large family, and Van helped us look, but it was not the right time to buy. A year later we went back to Van because he was so knowledgeable about the area and very professional. We were very happy that we did. ~ Diana, Wilmington
    Van Coley is an excellent realtor, he is patient, always in time to the different showing. Very good advice and explanation and he helps me a lot to understand the process of purchasing a property.

    We were very pleased with Van Coley. We had a complex situation for many reasons, and he never left our side. He called, texted, made many calls for us, went out of his way every day to help us buy our dream home. We are newlyweds and he knew how much this "first" home meant to us. Even after closing, he helped assist in the recording of our home on his own time. When you think he has done it all, we were greeted with a beautiful housewarming gift. We could go on and on , but just be sure to take our advice and choose Van for your real estate needs. He has since become a great friend. Donnie and Cathy Price ~ Donnie and Cathy Price , Carolina Beach NC
    We have finished the process of buying a home on an Island we love to visit. It is where our children and grand kids live and now we can all be together We were fortunate to have Van Coley helping us and guiding us in our search for a home that would be comfortable, enjoyable, and affordable. We viewed many homes on Pleasure Island and finally found a home that we liked, could afford, and would meet our needs. Van's knowledge in real-estate and of the Island made everything come together smoothly. He is a positive person who helps keep things on tract and listens to your needs and follows up on any matters that you may need. It was a pleasure working with Van. I would recommend Van Coley and the team at Century 21 Sweyer & Associates to anyone looking for an agent whom, you can trust, works hard for their client, keeps them informed and listens to their needs. ~ Stephen Brinson, Wilmington, N.C.

    We just recently purchased a condo in Oak Island, NC and used Van as our agent. We had used Van about 2 months ago on the selling end of a condo we owned in Carolina Beach, NC. Based on our experiences with Van, I could not be more impressed with him. He provides great contract review and negotiation abilities. When any complications arose, Van is an expert in maneuvering through the myriad of situations with the end goal of finding a solution that fit our needs best. He is very friendly, personable, and honest which are character attributes that I strongly admire. I highly recommend Van and look forward to hopefully using him again soon. ~ Joe & Ellen - Apex, NC

    It was a pleasure working with Van Coley. His professionalism and general concern for me during this process was very instrumental... Thank you Van... ~ Terry Pennington. Wilmington, NC
    Van Coley was recommended by a co-worker. I am so thankful for that recommendation! I had tried another relator at a different agency but found them to be too inexperienced. I actually had to counsel them on how to negotiate a sales price. Van did a great job and really listened to me and what my desires were. He knows his market very well. Van found my desired home, in my desired neighborhood, and in my desired price range. Van was always very responsive to my questions and desires. I would and have recommended Van to friends and co-workers. If I am ever in the market again for a home I will not hesitate to contact Van Coley again. ~ Pat C of Wilmington, NC
    Van Coley is just an extremely pleasant person to work with, not a pushy agent (that for us would have been a big turn off). I would definitely work with him again. Really understood what we were looking for and showed us properties that fit our desires. ~ Dave, Mequon WI

    Van Coley was the best agent we could have imagined. For months he sent us listings at our request, without any pressure. When we finally found the property for us, he acted quickly to negotiate the best price on our behalf. His knowledge of mortgage and closing processes was so helpful. We felt comfortable asking him many questions and he answered every one with expertise and patience. We cannot thank Van Coley enough, and highly recommend his services as real estate agent. ~ Manfred and Toby Hellmers, Carolina Beach, NC
    Van Coley was very organized, which allowed for a closing in less than 3 weeks; even with a total of 6 out-of- state seller's signatures required for estate property sale (4 heirs + 2 spouses) ~ Brad Griffin, Gloucester, VA
    Van Coley handled the selling of our house with excellence and urgency and, once that house was under contract, he sought to help us to find and secure our most perfect new home. His knowledge of the local market and how it compared to our needs and wants was stellar. We are so happy in our new home, and the location and everything on our "wish" list was satisfied perfectly. I would recommend Van Coley in both list your home for selling, or to help you find your perfect new home! ~ Paul and Kaye Czerw, Wilmington, NC

Couldn't have asked for a better representative and he was super patient with all my questions and phone calls! Van was not only professional but very friendly and approachable. He always called me back in a very timely fashion. We would definitely seek him out for any other real estate needs that we have and also recommend him to colleagues, friends and family. I hope all your agents rate as high as Van Coley! It was hard to believe how easy and smoothly everything went. We were very impressed with our agent. Makes us just want to purchase something else!!!! ~ Davis and Robin Terry Bahama NC

    Van was fantastic! He made the entire buying process a pleasant experience. His personal knowledge of Carolina Beach was very beneficial. I give Van Coley my highest recommendation! ~ Michael Crist, Wake Forest
    Van Coley is amazing and a true professional. His friendly yet professional manner put us at ease going through the selling process, reducing the stress that can often accompany a time like this. He made himself available and answered all our questions in a timely manner. He is committed 100% to his clients and we are so grateful for all he has done for us. He also helped us buy a home five years ago when we were new to the area. After showing us homes he took us for a drive around Wilmington and pointed out different locations, restaurants, and places of interest. He went above and beyond the responsibilities of a real estate agent. In both cases he listened and understood our needs, then proceeded to put our best interests first while working professionally to help us. My husband and I recommend Van Coley wholeheartedly. He is a true professional. ~ William and Debra Hoyt, Wilmington

    Van is the man. ~ Boyd Andersen @ 704 monroe st. C.B. N.C.
    Van is,by far, the best real estate broker that we have dealt with. He was there from day 1 showing us property all the way to closing. Always had time for us. Always answered my phone calls. He even took time from his family on a Sunday afternoon to let us in the house to show our family the property. And though we've closed on our home, we hope that Van and his family becomes close friends. As long as Van is in the business of Real estate, he has our business. ~ Brian Padgett Carolina Beach, NC
    As my neighbor, I had confidence in Van as my broker. He knew what I was looking for and was able to be sure I was happy with the decision we made in our offer and our negotiations. He was able to give us good advice. All went smoothly and without any problems. I was so pleased that I have already passed on Van Coley's name to another friend looking to buy a house. ~ Betty-Sue Kearney Carolina Beach, NC
    As I said, I was referred to Van by another broker, and am grateful for that referral. Van was terrific in every way. I could not have been more pleased. He was incredibly available, even on Easter Sunday. He was ever so prompt with return phone calls and information gathering. I never felt rushed or pushed; he gave me excellent advice when I needed it. I admire his honesty and integrity. He continues to be helpful to me, I am also grateful for that. You are indeed fortunate to have Van representing your company; I don't think it would be possible to find a better broker. I hope I will be able to refer others to him someday, it would be my pleasure. Sincerely, Sally Howell This was the first house I had purchased on my own. I had many questions, likely some stupid ones but Van was patient and encouraged me to ask questions, allowing me the benefit of his vast expertise. Doubtless, there were times he provided information to me that I was unaware of needing. Excellent in all respects. ~ Sally Howell. 712 S 4th ext ave, Kure Beach
