“Jo-an is a true professional! Her knowledge and expertise in Southern Pines was incredibly valuable to me since I was moving from out of the area. We had a few tricky issues during the buying process that Jo-an helped me navigate through with patience, determination, and kindness. She had a way of making me feel as though I was her only client! I would happily work with Jo-an in the future.” – Kim

“We are very pleased with Jo-an and the DeSell team.

Jo-an knows this area and has relationships with the other agents, contractors, inspectors and the community. Her guidance made our move to Southern Pines a real pleasure.

She was knowlegable and trustworthy during the contract process and set us up with a great attorney to close the transaction.

As we were out of town, Jo-an and her team went “above and beyond” to handle our inspections with very qualified contractors. We felt very confident that everything was professionally handled in our absense.

A true professional, we will recommend DeSell & Co. to anyone without reservation. We trusted her with everything and were never disappointed. She had the patience to show us “a ton of properties” over multiple trips before selecting our perfect home. On top of it all, Jo-an is also a very nice person and a pleasure to do business with.” -C.P.

choice of the right property was essential. Jo-an DeSell has a
very good understanding of the community, and the types of
property available. She has a realistic view of the market. And
most importantly, she makes the best use of your time, only
showing properties that are appropriate in size and value. A
pleasure to work with in all respects.”–Mary

“Jo-an was recommended to us by my sister who lives in Southern Pines. We chose her to list our property because of her excellent reputation and knowledge of horse property. Jo-an is the best, most knowledgeable horse property real estate agent in Moore county in my opinion. Her communication skills were excellent from start to finish. I would highly recommend Jo-an to anyone buying or selling property in horse country. If in the future we were to decide to move to Southern Pines I would definitely work with her again.”  -F.H.

“Jo-an has an outstanding reputation for her straight dueling, business ethics, and business knowledge.  But even more important to me was that I trusted her completely.  We were working with her from out of town, but she was so efficient in sending us information and documents, the deal went more smoothly that most of our local transactions.  By the time we got to settlement, my husband, who is a retired attorney and barely knew Jo-an when we started, was singing her praises to everyone.” -DM

We met with three local brokers. Audrey was the most knowledgeable and had better plans to sell the house. House was shown more often than we expected and sold much sooner than we expected! Audrey did a great job in spite of disagreeing family members (estate transaction). Audrey was incredible.

Audrey did a wonderful job on a VERY difficult transaction. I firmly believe that most agents could not have pulled this deal off. She was supportive from day one and is tough as nails.
