Once in a while, you deal with a company who exceeds all of your expectations. Integrity, strong work ethic, superior expertise, and a willingness to go the extra mile to make sure everything is handled just right for you the client. Having had both a house sale and purchase handled by the McCormick Team, they have our absolute respect and trust. These folks have a community network and a market knowledge that is unparalleled and yet they also have a friendly, comfortable, and no pressure style that makes them a delight to work with. They have our very highest recommendation!

Mark and Debbie (the McCormick Team) were great to work with...both times. They helped us find our home in Larkspur when we first moved to Chapel Hill in 2007. Then, when we were ready to list our home for sale earlier this summer, Mark and Debbie took the time to assist us with preparations for listing. They made excellent suggestions for staging our home...We reviewed current listings and recent home sales in our area...Then, together we decided on the right price for the home. The house was on the market 7 days and we had 5 showings and 2 offers. Wow! Everything worked out great.

I was fortunate to be a client of The McCormick Team when I was looking for housing in The Triangle. They were available any time they were needed. They gave advice on location and also on the quality of the housing. Their help did not stop when the house was purchased. I can still see Mark as he worked on cleaning the stove top as he was unhappy with the way the previous owners left it! They knew someone we could get for a handyman and also a cleaning person. Any advice we needed they had! Even now, five years later, we feel so comfortable with them we can still ask for advice!
We had the pleasure of working with Mark McCormick with our first home purchase. He joyfully walked us through finding the right home for us as well as walking us through the entire home buying process. With a smile on his face, he went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied with our purchase. Mark even helped us move in on moving day! We were so blessed to have him as our realtor. He is dependable, easy-going and very attentive to his client's needs. I would recommend him without reservation!
We can say without any doubt that Debbie and Mark McCormick set the standard for what real estate agents can do for their clients. They both went way beyond what we expected and most importantly their efforts made our entire family's life better! Mark and Debbie showed endless patience in helping us find a new home for our family. They listened carefully to understand our needs and preferences in housing styles and amenities. They kept us informed of any house that came on the market which matched our description and showed us many homes, over an extended period of time, before we finally found our dream home. After we signed our purchase contract, Mark and Debbie walked us through the inspection and mortgage application process. They made what could have been a difficult process much easier for us. Professional, knowledgeable, patient and extremely helpful are words that come to mind when we think of them. We have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending them. They will be the first Realtors we will call for any future real estate needs.

Debbie McCormick was a dream come true for us. We were looking for just the right house in just the neighborhood with just the right school. Debbie worked tirelessly to find out what we wanted and needed, and to match our ever changing vision of our ideal house with an actual house that was for sale. She was patient, kind, warm, and empathic to our needs. Unlike other agents we had worked with, we never felt pressured to look at a house that didn't fit our needs. She seemed deeply motivated to put us in the ideal house, like a matchmaker who is more concerned with a good fit, rather than any personal gain. Although we had limited contact with Mark, it felt like he was always there as resource just when we needed him. We can't recommend the McCormicks highly enough!
"Janel & Bryan Sexton"
I cannot say enough good things about The McCormick Team. They found a terrific buyer for my house despite extremely difficult circumstances -- housing market had crashed, the house had to be sold at that time as part of my divorce settlement, and there were tenants who were not always cooperative living in it. Throughout the process, everyone on The McCormick Team was patient, caring, and sensitive to the emotional, financial, and market issues.

The McCormick team made our move from Washington DC incredibly easy – they even went so far as to help us find quality contractors to help with home improvements & a temporary place to store some furniture pre-closing! Mark and Debbie were surprisingly honest and candid when helping us select a neighborhood. They listened to our goals and preferences & then “corrected” our drifting searches that seemed inconsistent with what we had initially told them! Team McCormick kept us on track and found a beautiful home where we started a family. As the family grew, they helped us again move across town to a more spacious home that had not even hit MLS yet. They know the Triangle inside and out!

The McCormick Team was recommended by a colleague at work who noted their high level of professional integrity. We are usually a bit skeptical about such recommendations but went ahead and enlisted the McCormicks in the purchase of our home. From our initial encounter that was filled with clarity and professionalism, we realized that this was a special team. They demonstrated old-fashioned hard work, flexibility with our needs and much-needed availability. They were brilliant in their choice of homes for our family and their inside knowledge of the town of Chapel Hill enabled us to purchase our dream-home at a dream-price. During the price negotiation I felt like they were 100% our advocates. We wholeheartedly recommend them.
"Maya and Martin Styner"
As a first-time home buyer, I relied on word-of-mouth for real estate agent recommendations. Thankfully, one was for Mark and Debbie McCormick! I initially worked with multiple agents, but the McCormick team stood out among the rest. Their professionalism, knowledge, and passion for making you their priority resonates throughout the process. I have one, single, glowing recommendation when looking for a real estate agent in the Triangle: choose the McCormick team!
We have worked with many Realtors in the past, but none as professional, responsive, and caring as Mark and Debbie McCormick. We were moving to Chapel Hill from overseas and were not familiar to the area. The McCormick Team listened to our needs and educated us on the various neighborhoods. The result is we ended up with a great house in the perfect neighborhood for our family. In addition, they were not just there for us during the search and closing, but also afterward. We cannot say enough good things about them. We can recommend them without hesitation for any real estate needs you may have.
"Mark and Bonnie Porter"
We worked with Debbie & Mark McCormick when we sold our Chapel Hill home in 2011 before we re-located to New Jersey. They were recommended to us by mutual friends, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision to work with them. From helping us to come up with the right asking price, and calling in the right professionals to make small repairs and give staging advice, to just being there to answer questions by phone or email, Debbie & Mark exceeded our expectations. They were incredibly
hardworking and it paid off- our house was under contract within a day and a half of going on the market!
"Lauren and Mike Madden"
Our condo came on the market in Chapel Hill at a very difficult time, a lot of inventory and falling prices. Mark & Debbie McCormick provided us with the information that we needed to set our price and eventually sell our condo. They changed marketing strategies and stayed on top of every lead. Advised us as to competitive activity and sales, worked with us on revising our price and when we finally received an offer helped us close the deal. They bring different perspectives to the process and are both easy to work with. We highly recommend the McCormick team and know you will have the same success we had.

A Very Positive Home-Buying Experience
I was in need of finding a house in a relatively short period of time and I had my eye on a house that was up for sale. I had known Mark and Debbie McCormick personally for some time and I enlisted their help in making the purchase. Mark acted as my principal agent, but it was clear from the beginning that he and Debbie act as a team, backing each other up and both offering their support during the entire process.
Mark contacted the listing agent and in spite of the relatively tight housing market, the sellers were not helpful in working out the details of the transaction. Mark worked diligently and honestly throughout the whole process. He was in at least daily contact with the listing agent and would carefully explain the details of offers and counter-offers to me. The advantages and disadvantages of each offer were always fully explored. I nearly walked away from the deal a couple of times, but it was Mark’s skill that always kept it moving. In the end we reached agreement and I purchased my home.
Throughout the process Mark relied on Debbie’s help in tracking down details and enlisted her opinions. After the sale, both Mark and Debbie helped me with new home-owner problems. This was truly a TEAM MCCORMICK sale and I am grateful for it."Paul Ordronneau"
I feel a deep need for a beautiful home that suits my tastes, so it was a laborious task to tour homes and decide on one that felt right, matching the aesthetics with my price range... Debbie took the time to view each with me, help me navigate the pros and cons of each, and work through issues to eventually close on the home that I bought... She was patient with my process and never pushed me to buy something that felt like "settling"... I felt supported the entire way AND, I've landed in the perfect home... I'm happy every day about the home I've purchased and, attribute much of the success to the partnership with Debbie. I would use her again in a heartbeat! "Joan Welch, Chapel Hill"
Working with The McCormick Team has been a pleasure. Extremely helpful before, during, and after the home purchase.
Would recommend highly.

My parents are amazing people. Whether its working at home or in the office they both show pride and skills on the job. My whole life I have been exposed to what it is like to work as a Real Estate Agent and now, seeing how challenging it can be, I am very proud of them. I was always unsure of what I was going to be when I grow up. Looking up to their great example, I have started to talk about being a Real Estate Agent just like my parents, following in their footsteps.
