    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    As a Native to Dare County and a Hatteras Island resident for 30 years, I love the quality of life the Outer Banks has to offer. As well as being a Real Estate Broker, I am a mother of two daughters and a board member of the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation. My past experience as an insurance agent and knowledge of marine contracting from our family business has led me into Real Estate. I would love to share my knowledge of our real estate market and our unique island with you.

    Helping people buy or sell their homes, whether as an investor, a first time home buyer, custom home, relocation, or a distressed property sale, putting clients first by providing the very best service is my goal.

    As your agent, I will strive to keep you fully informed every step of the way and now with my Daughter working with me, reaching one of us will be twice as easy. We hope to help you find your piece of paradise!

    If you are looking for a realtor that possesses professionalism, honesty, dedication and is extremely versed in Outer Banks real estate, look no further Renee hits all of the marks. We have lived in Frisco for twenty years and needed to relocate. Initially, we listed our home on Zillow thinking it would sell quickly, but there are many factors that make selling a home yourself not as easy as one would think. The hardest part is the marketing end. When using Zillow your home doesn't get the exposure needed to attract the appropriate buyers. We honestly did not have the time to field calls, texts, and show the home to folks that either were not serious about buying a home or weren't pre-qualified. After having our home on Zillow for six weeks we decided to give Renee a call. She thoroughly explained the contract, selling process as well as our obligations and the buyer's obligations to make the sale go smoothly. Renee responded to any questions we had in a timely manner. Within five weeks of Renee listing our home we had a qualified buyer. With Renee the sale of our home was seamless and stress free. If you are looking for a realtor on the Outer Banks give Renee a call, you will be extremely satisfied.

    Renee was an excellent agent in my recent purchase of a home. She had direct knowledge of the area and the property she was selling. She worked diligently to ensure all the details were accomplished timely to the satisfaction of all and ensuring a timely transaction. It is evident Renee is a very seasoned realtor and true professional working to the satisfaction of all parties.

    Renee was a pleasure to work with and provided us great insight and guidance during the transaction. I would highly recommend her and the agency.
    Laura gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee was the perfect professional to list our home. We have owned a second home in the Tri-Village area for the past 15 years. With our children in High School and College our travel became less frequent and we made the difficult decision to sell our home. We asked around for a local relator and Renee came highly recommended by many. I understand why. Renee went out of her way to accommodate our wishes, offered sound and on-point feedback and responded immediately to calls and e-mails. Thanks for your thoroughness, patience and dedication to the sale of our home, Renee. Your hard work is appreciated.

    Renee was amazing!! We closed on our house on time despite having to overcome several obstacles associated with the Covid 19 pandemic. This was only possible because of all the hard work Renee put in.
    TC gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee was very professional, proficient, and helpful. She always followed up on any questions that arose and unforeseen issues. I was impressed with her knowledge and recommendations which all paid off on the closing of the property transaction. I would recommend Renee to everyone especially my friends and family, she was very truthful, was always available for questions and is an overall good person.
    Jackie gave Renee 4 stars out of 5
    Renee was overly patient and accommodating when looking at house. She quickly learned my style and made suggestions on houses to look at. She knew the area exceptionally well which helped in my final selection.

    Renee is an excellent agent, if its possible to be completely on top of the market, the process to finalize the bid and the closing actions, and be easy going all at the same time Renee has it all. Plus, she has been extremely helpful after the sale with her knowledge of the area and the resources you might need to complete your experience. thank you Renee Pete

    Tim gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee is a joy to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate market, professional, and very responsive to our inquiries. She went out of her way to make sure we could close on our home on time, making many follow-up phone calls and sending emails to the seller's agent to ensure everything was being completed and required information was being provided.
    Response from Renee
    Tim and Linda, thank you for the wonderful review. It's be a privilege to work with you both. Now that this is completed, we'll be wrapping up the second closing in the next couple of weeks and you'll be able to get on with the real business of taking care of those Goldies! ¿¿ Can't wait to visit, Best, Renee

    Renee was amazing to work with, knowledgeable and easy to work with. This was a second home\vacation and long distance purchase for us. She was responsive and her local knowledge was helpful through the entire process. I picked Renee by reading her bio and want to work with someone who lived and worked in the area for a number of years, she fit the job for sure I would highly recommend Renee. Sincerely, Bill Boarts
    Response from Renee
    Thank you Bill for the opportunity to work with you on this endeavor. I love where we live and want to share it with others. I hope you and your family will have some of your most happy and memorable moments when you are here visiting. Please let me know when you all are back, so I can stop in and say hello.

    Our experience as sellers of a beach house was extremely satisfactory We were 4 hours away. Renee handled everything professionally and timely,including wading thru water to check after the hurricane and preparation prior to the hurricane Between E mail and telephone we were constantly aware of everything that was happening. It was a problem and worry free transaction on our part. Thank you Renee

    Mary gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    I have never worked with a realtor that does her job better Renee Burrus. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of buying and selling homes. I have bought many and sold many. Her quick response time made me feel very secure and aware of every aspect of the sale of my home. Not only her business dedication and professionalism she made me feel as though we had been friends for quite some time. If anyone is looking for an agent, I highly recommend Renee to you as you will be !00% satisfied with her. Thank you Renee for everything you have done for me!
    Donna gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee was instrumental in helping us through all of the unknown steps of both selling and buying a home in Hatteras. Her connections to local contractors, inspectors, mortgage lenders, attorneys and insurance agents were instrumental in this process. She paid great attention to details of each home that we viewed and always made herself available to meet our schedules. We are very grateful for her fine job in making our dream beach home a reality.
    Tom gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee went above and beyond to help us with our land purchase earlier this year. She was able to assist us with all the questions we had concerning the property. We would recommend Renee to anyone wating to purchase property on the Outer Banks. Thanks Renee!
    Bab gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Renee is a very knowledgeable a dedicated professional who's top priority was to ensure I was getting exactly what I was looking for. She took the time to understand what needs were and made a strong effort to find what I was looking for. She made me aware of things that I would not normally be aware of since she is originally from the area. My search took a little time and many houses were researched. She kept me on track finding the perfect house for me. I would be more than happy to recommend her to any other potential buyers or sellers on the Outer Banks and looking forward to working with her in the future!
    Martha gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    Having vacationed in Hatteras, NC for many years, we were ready to purchase our own second home. Renee helped us for well over a year looking for that perfect one - personally alerting us immediately when something came on the market that fit our criteria. She was extremely well prepared with available properties for us look at when we came to view prospective homes, including those we might not have considered, but she knew were excellent choices because of her familiarity with the locale. She went the extra mile when we had questions or wanted to see a property again (or again), always available even when she was vacationing with her family! When we did put down a contract, she consistently kept us appraised of its status and when our contract was accepted, she was a wealth of information regarding home inspectors, elevation certificates, surveys, insurance, financing and closing options. We are very happy with our new home and Renee's expertise helped make that happen.
    Myra gave Renee 5 stars out of 5
    We are looking for a second home to retire to in a few years and Renee knows the area and was very honest about each home and flooding issues that we are unaware of. We learned a lot more about the area looking at homes. We vacation here every year, but living here will be different and she had answers when we asked. She did not pressure us in picking any home. We enjoyed spending the time looking and will be back to look some more until we find our perfect home to live the rest of our lives in.

    As a homeowner in the Outer Banks area, you have undoubtedly heard about the Rodanthe "Jug Handle" Bridge construction the last few years.
