Reviews for Johnson Team Real Estate


My husband James & I really enjoyed working with Matt & Meredith Johnson with RE/MAX in Morehead City. We attempted to sell our house by ourselves and after an unsuccessful 3 months, we were eager to get our house listed with a realtor. Once we contacted the Johnsons, they were very timely with the whole process. After 2 weeks of our home hitting the MLS, we went under contract & closed a month later. We had never expected the whole process to go so quickly and so smoothly. They were super helpful from start to finish. We are currently renting until we find a new home to purchase and will use them again when we decide to buy. Whenever we have been interested in a property, they have always been available to show it & are helpful in providing us information. We really appreciate their professionalism & friendliness.

We were referred to Matt and Meredith Johnson by word of mouth/recommendation and let me tell you, we were not disappointed! Their availability, service, and advertising exceeded our expectations. They helped us to sell our home for the most competitive price in what seemed like the lowest market I have seen in years. It was also the first time I ever had to "close" on a home on my own. They guided me every step of the way. Through each phase in the process of selling our home, Matt and Meredith worked diligently. We, now, in turn, would recommend them to anyone who needs help buying or selling. Thank you again for all of your knowledge and hard work.

- Mathew and Melissa Schirle

It has been a great experience working with you and Matt. You helped us find the perfect place and exactly what we were looking for. Our questions were promptly answered and always to our satisfaction. We definitely could not have done this without you. Thank you Meredith and Matt for our wonderful experience, you made it so easy.

Friends and Family may be an overworked term but while working with Meredith, Matt and the staff at RE/MAX Ocean Properties, I can't think of anything else. Communication with them was like talking with someone you had known for awhile and as easy as calling, texting or e-mailing someone you do often. We moved to Morehead City from South Carolina, not a long move but just far enough to not be able to drop in to take care of details, and they were always looking out for us making sure everything was on schedule and keeping us updated. They gladly shared local info and contacts, helped us get utilities set up and even let me use a computer before our internet was working. We would highly recommend them and would not hesitate to use this agency again.

As a seller in a soft real estate market, I knew that it was pertinent to make the right decision when choosing a Realtor for the listing of my Atlantic Beach house. Fortunately for me, within five months (when minimal sales occurred in the area) the expertise of Matthew and Meredith Johnson of ReMax sold my home. 

Upon meeting Matthew for the first time, I knew through his researched presentation that he had not only prepared with comparisons, but offered a keen knowledge of real estate marketing through his business education background. From our initial introduction, I felt comfortable with his vibrant personality and confident that I had listed with an experienced agent that would produce results.

Constant contact via email and phone, updates, suggestions and the fact that he physically assisted me in preparation for showings by performing minor exterior repairs and removal of excess décor in the interior, are but a few examples to describe his outstanding attention to details and genuine effort to provide an "above and beyond" real estate service to me. The entire ReMax office staff showed diligent dedication through the entire process, and I would highly recommend this company to anyone involved in selling or buying real estate in today's market.

My husband and I recently purchased a vacation home in the Beaufort area. Working with the professional team of Matt and Meredith Johnson made this process an entirely pleasurable experience. Their attention to detail, expert advice and commitment to helping us make the most informed decisions, led to our successful home purchase. Best of all, their service was delivered in a sincerely friendly manner. We were so pleased, we recommended "Team Johnson" to other family members who have also purchased property in the area. A wonderful organization with unlimited potential for success!

-Beverly & David Riley

Thank you so much for being so helpful and caring in my purchase of my new home. We absolutely love it! Every morning I get up and thank God. It is still amazing to me. I will make sure that I refer others who are looking for their perfect home to you. God's Blessings on your and your family.

Meredith and Matt Johnson are outstanding realtors. I would refer them to anyone I know family, friends, you name it as they provide the complete package of real estate services you would need to buy or sell a home…and then some! They listened to our needs regarding the type of home we desired to buy in the Morehead City area, its location, its key features, and most importantly, the budget with which we were working. They found us exactly what we desired in 1 and a half days!! They assisted us in negotiating for an agreed upon price with the owner. That took all of another week. 

Both the seller and we were ready to go, but for some reason the bank that held the mortgage just dragged its feet. Matt and Meredith stayed after them vigorously but politely to get the paperwork done as quickly, and kept us completely informed throughout the complete process. When we (actually when Meredith and Matt) got the bank moving, the paperwork was totally completed in a matter of days, not weeks. But the Johnson's didn't stop there. They researched and provided a detailed listing of every company and even the individual's name the previous owners had worked with regarding electricity, phone service, heating, pool services, landscaping, and many other services. They even personally contacted several of these companies on our behalf since we were buying from out of town. In short, they were outstanding-total professionals, knowledgeable about every single issue on which we had a question. If you or someone you know is either buying or selling a home, you could not find a better team to represent you and work as your partner than Matt and Meredith. They exceeded every single expectation we had regarding finding a realtor to represent us in this complex transaction whom we could totally trust to lead us through every issue that arose during the transaction. I simply do not know how you could find anyone better and better prepared to be your realtor. And that you can definitely take to the bank!!

I am writing to thank you for helping me get the house sold. I was a very detail-oriented client and you fit my needs perfectly with monthly reports and follow-ups from showings. In today's market, you have to use every resource possible. Your input was invaluable. I believe that your awesome marketing plan and honest, up-front approach is what made the house sell as quickly as it did. In the middle of trying to sell, I was hit with a lay-off from my job and separation from my husband. The Johnson team are pro's, and you handled the details and transactions without a hitch. I cannot thank you enough for your support. I will not hesitate to tell anyone I meet about your impeccable service. As soon as I am back on my feet and able to purchase another home, I will be calling only you. I wish your family the very best and hope you have a prosperous summer. Take care!

I found Matt's professionalism and his team's attention to detail extremely helpful. As an out-of-town seller in a difficult market, I needed a Realtor who knew the market, would make sound recommendations for the pricing and staging of my condo, and then follow-up with me consistently to keep me in the loop. I've worked with three different Realtor's in the Crystal Coast area over the past seven years, and my experience with Matt was the most favorable.

Matt and Meredith, Ray and I want to sincerely thank you for helping us find our new home. After many months of looking at houses and putting in offers, thanks to your help we found a place that we love and enjoy! You showed us your resourcefulness and persistence in dealing with the odd issues that popped up during the process. We also appreciate your patience and honesty as you responded to our endless stream of questions! Thank you for everything!

- The Mroch Family

I hope you and your family had a blessed Thanksgiving. I just wanted to let you know how grateful Aeonie and I am for selling our home. I truly appreciate the hard work and the time well spent to sell the house as quickly as you both did in this "economical crisis". You both showed outstanding professionalism and I would not hesitate to recommend you both to others who are trying to sell their home. Thank you for all your help!

We were originally referred to RE/MAX Ocean Properties by another realtor that said she would go with Meredith if she were going to sell her own home in this economy. After working with them to sell our house I can see why! Even though we were selling from half way across the country, we never felt out of the loop because Meredith kept us informed and was quick to answer any questions that came up along the way. If the house needed a repair or routine maintenance, we could count on Meredith to recommend someone reputable to take care of things. When we asked for guidance on how to respond to offers she made suggestions with our best interest in mind. Overall I felt like we really were taken care of and were extremely pleased with how our house was marketed on the internet and in area home magazines.

The members of RE/MAX Ocean Properties are committed to customer service. They were a big help in selling our parents home during the difficult housing market. From start to closing we were provided with excellent personal service. Matt, Meredith, Susan and the rest of the team members were always helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed working with each and every one on the team.

In April of 2008, our family began looking for a home in Carteret County . We chanced upon a house listed with Matt and Meredith Johnson of RE/MAX Ocean Properties. The listing was already under contract, but we liked the couple so much we continued to use them as our agents. They patiently showed us homes to fit our interests for over a year, while we waited for our home in Raleigh , NC to sell. During the entire process, the Johnson Team was always available and willing to answer questions, send us new listings, and readily show us homes. They gave us seasoned advice and we felt well represented while we were in the negotiation process, the contract process, as well as the process of securing the best loan available. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Johnsons and would highly recommend them to anyone considering selling or purchasing property in Carteret County . We can truly say that we now have the home of our dreams, thanks to Matt and Meredith Johnson of RE/MAX Ocean Properties!

My RE/MAX experience began in July 08. It was a holiday weekend and Matt Johnson met me at a house located on Bridges Street in Morehead City . Matt was friendly and very professional. The house wasn't for me but this was the beginning of a long search for the perfect home in Morehead City.

Over many months, we e-mailed back and forth, Matt sent weekly listings. His expertise and guidance helped me narrow the search to about 12 properties. We looked at every property, he knew exactly what I wanted, and provided all the information I needed to choose the perfect home. The difficult work began once the contract was placed on my future home in Morehead City.

In today's economy the lending companies have many guidelines to meet, it's very difficult and frustrating to go through the loan process. My loan wasn't the "typical" loan and we faced many roadblocks. Matt was there for me with calm resolve. He handled all the details while I worked to meet the requirements for the loan. When I thought the deal was lost, he reassured me it's not over and would continue to fight to help me get my home. We closed over the weekend.

Anything is possible with this great team. Matt and Meredith's "can do" attitude, attention to detail and calm resolve is what every homebuyer and seller need in today's market. 

As far as I'm concerned, as well as my family and friends, the only real estate company in Morehead City is RE/MAX Ocean Properties - Matt and Meredith Johnson.

- Susan Brown

Meredith and Matthew Johnson are great to work with. They always made us feel like we were their top priority. Team Johnson always got back to us very quickly and never wasted our time. Meredith was always friendly, no pressure, always available, honest, knowledgeable, and helpful. They took care of details that I never knew a realtor would handle! This was an excellent experience. A great team. Thanks Meredith and Matthew!

"My husband and I recently sold our house in Havelock and purchased our new home in Carteret County. This all happened with the assistance and guidance of Matt and Meredith Johnson. Our reason for choosing Ocean Properties was simple...Team Johnson. From the beginning, Matt and Meredith gave us the feeling that our goals were their #1 priority. We realized that they had other clients, but isn't great when someone makes you feel that way! Selling and/or buying a new home definitely has it's stressful moments, but Team Johnson was there every step of the way. We not only found solid advice with a strong, steady, reassuring hand when we needed it, but also found friends for life and got a great house! Now that's a great deal!"

In September of 2007 I was transfered to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, and had to decide where I would buy my first home. I chose Morehead City to be closer to the beach, shops and restaurants. I had also sought the advice of people that had been stationed here in the past and most of them that lived in New Bern said they regretted the decision to not buy in Morehead. Since it was my first home I decided to go to Remax because it is a national company with an excellent reputation. What I didn't expect was the level of personal attention that I would receive from Matt and Meredith Johnson. They took the time to not only show me houses but also the whole area, from good restaurants to shortcuts. Meredith also worked around my demanding work schedule to make sure that we had all the required inspections for a VA loan. I am very happy with my decision to buy in Morehead and with the friendly service I received from Matt and Meredith.

Matthew and Meredith Johnson are both wonderful people to work with. They are friendly, easy to talk to, reliable, professional, and both are a pleasure to be around. My husband and I were buying our first house and they helped us through every step of the process, even though we were purchasing from a long distance away and were unfamiliar with what needed to be done. After guiding us through the entire house purchase, they went above and beyond what we ever expected them to do, such as checking on the house several times while we were unable to. They are quick to respond to your calls, patient when explaining paperwork and answering questions, and concerned with your overall happiness. We could not have gotten luckier or be more satisfied then by having Matt and Meredith as our realtors. We would recommend them to anyone and look forward to working with them again.

- John and Maria Fischer

Matt & Meredith Johnson of RE/MAX Ocean Properties are a great team! We were very happy and satisfied to have them as our realtors. They were always very professional and responsive and we feel fortunate to have had them represent us in the sale of our home.

- Watts & Faye Piner

Matt and Meredith Johnson made my first home buying experience an absolute delight and treated me as so much more than just a "client"! As most first time home buyers I was overwhelmed by the entire process, but they guided me through the steps and handled all the details with professionalism. I travel frequently for my job so it was pertinent that I found a realtor with whom I felt comfortable and could rely on in my absence. Matt and Meredith exceeded all my expectations! They kept me up to date through email and were available anytime by phone to answer my questions. Matt and Meredith were a joy to work with and I would highly recommend their services to anyone. They went above and beyond the call of duty and for that I thank them immensely.

- Kimberly Foley

As first time home buyers, Matt and Meredith helped us through the complex process. They are easy to work with, talk to, and approach. As a team, they were always available to answer our questions and their knowledge assisted us in making good decisions. We will definitely choose to work with them again on any future real estate dealings.

- Cameron & Shannon Guthrie
