About Lois Magee

Client Reviews

Read what others are saying about Lois Magee.

“In the past four years, my husband and I relocated from the West Coast to the East Coast, then moved from South Carolina to North Carolina. Of the four different realtors we used in the buying/selling of two homes, Lois Magee was by far the best. Lois provided the utmost personal service and when our house closed, we were actually disappointed that we wouldn’t be working with her any longer. Lois first took great care to understand what our wants/needs were for our new home. Then, as we began looking at houses, it became very apparent that Lois was very knowledgeable about the local area and was able to share the pros and cons of different neighborhoods as well as being very knowledgeable about the impact of future development, something that we had not even thought of. Once we chose a home that we liked, Lois took the lead in researching the offering price and comparative homes, which allowed us to negotiate a fair price. With an accepted offer in hand, we were pleasantly surprised when Lois then anticipated every possible inspection, appointment, arrangement, or contact that needed to be done. From arranging the home inspection all the way down to providing us the information for phone service options for our new home, Lois was always several steps ahead of us. Lois was very responsive and timely, and if she wasn’t available due to servicing other clients, she was quick to apologize for any delay no matter how short. We would recommend Lois Magee to anyone who wants a pleasant, stress-free, exceptional real estate experience.”

James & Susan Williams Relocating from South Carolina

“We are so glad we chose Lois as our realtor when buying our first home. She found us a beautiful home that we absolutely love in a wonderful area and negotiated with the sellers for a great price. She is knowledgeable, honest, and diligent, and we highly recommend her services.”

Brad and Gabi Griffin First Time Home Buyers

“I moved to North Carolina from Utah and was fortunate to be referred to Lois Magee. It was apparent as we looked at more and more homes that this agent knew her stuff! Her familiarity with the area, home structure and local and state codes provided me with the tools I needed to secure a beautiful home on Coachmans Way. But not before the buyer complied with a list of repairs initiated by Lois including a new septic system. Her professionalism coupled with a can do friendly attitude makes Lois the perfect choice if you’re in the market for a home.”

Rick Provenzano Relocating from Utah

“Lois is incredible! When I moved to Raleigh, I was in need of temporary housing and she came highly recommended by my nephew, Tim Whaley. She immediately put together rental options as I began my search for a new home. She listened to all my wants and needs and though I didn’t have a lot of money to spend, she helped me find exactly what I was looking for. This woman knows real estate! And she treats your money like her own. She takes her responsibility as your agent very seriously and you will quickly come to think of her as family. Her years of experience were invaluable to me as she was able to anticipate and explain things I had never even thought of. She knew my budget, stuck to it and was able to steer me in the right direction. She is genuine, knowledgeable, and such fun to be around! She made my purchase as stress free as possible. I highly recommend her to everyone. She’s the best!”

Patti Cannan Relocating from Ohio

“Lois helped us through the entire home buying process, from searching through the sale. She answered every question we had to the best of her knowledge, and as first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. We definitely recommend her; she is both competent and professional.”

Marshall and Abby Pergerson 1st Time Homebuyers

“Lois Magee is the absolute BEST realtor on the planet. Her experience and attention to detail is incredible. She recently helped us sell our home and purchase another. We got a negotiated a great deal on the home we purchased and sold our home in 12 days! We even had a back up offer waiting in the wings. Lois is Smart, savvy and has incredible contacts (professional and ethical)…contractors, inspectors, engineers, attorneys, you name it. Thank you Lois, you are a blessing and a gift to our family!”

Sue 

“Lois is a very dedicated and personable real estate agent who helped lead us in the right direction in our search for a new home. She not only knew the area extremely well, she knew what we were looking for after meeting and talking with us for a very short time. Her knowledge of the various neighborhoods was invaluable and I highly recommend her for her expertise, her integrity and her friendly personality.”

Charles 

“Lois is the consummate real estate professional exhibiting patience, honesty, integrity and reliability. She was always available for my wife and me keeping us updated on a very regular basis. Our house sold within the first week of listing thanks to her guidance and marketing advice. I have bought and sold 10 homes and Lois was, by far, the best agent I have ever worked with.”

Terry 

“Lois is an expert in her field and knows her customers and her territory. I recommend her highly for your real estate needs. She is surely one of the best!”

Jean 

“We recently downsized and Lois did an extraordinary job. We sold and bought on the same day, not to mention close to Christmas, and Lois kept everything on track. We could always count on Lois doing the right thing at the right time. Her knowledge and integrity were comforting throughout the process, and she made a challenging time much easier. We highly recommend Lois!”

Jeff and Grace worked with Lois in 2014

“Lois is Awesome! We used Lois to sell our 1st home and purchase a new home. We cannot begin to tell you how much we appreciated the number of hours Lois spent with us in person, and by phone, keeping us totally informed every step of the way. Lois approach helped sell our first home quickly in just four days. She showed extraordinary professionalism and we could not have had better support. The personal attention and direction Lois provided helped to keep us focused over the many weeks. Lois never once left us feeling confused or in the dark. Her astounding passion and excitement made us feel we were working with a friend and not just a Realtor. Lois has a profound knowledge of the real estate business and all the local communities, we were very impressed by her dedication and commitment to her work and clients. We especially appreciate her recommendations on upgrades, inspections, lot and home choices. It is clear that she is in real estate because she truly loves people and what she does. We are truly thankful for her persistence and optimism.”

Sherman and Tonia worked with Lois in 2014

“I would recommend Lois Magee to be your realtor based upon my experience working with her recently on the sale of a home. I have had the privilege of working with 5 previous realtors in housing purchases and sales and Lois would be my top choice. Why?

Lois proved to be educated about the market as well as the intricacies of the real estate transaction process which is complicated today. She was available via email, phone, or in person when the need arose. Her followup was quick and accurate. Her recommendations concerning prepping the house for sale were right on and her list of contacts to do any necessary fixups was superb. Throughout negotiations, she had her clients’ best interests always front and center. Right through a successful sale and closing Lois was honest, professional, and exhibited the utmost integrity.”

Dave, worked with Lois as a Realtor in 2013

“I highly recommend Lois to anybody that is looking to buy a home. She is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Lois was always available and accommodating to our schedules. She was very patient with me and my wife as we were first time home buyers and always ensured we understood every step of the process. I look forward to working with her in the future.”

Greg, hired Lois as Real Estate Agent in 2012.

“I just finished working with Lois on the purchase of my new home. From the beginning until the end of the process, Lois was there for me. I have dealt with a number of real estate agents in the past, but Lois far exceeded their performance. She took care of all of the details, giving me complete peace of mind. She is friendly, efficient & very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Lois & would not hesitate to work with her in the future.”

Jane, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2012.

“Lois doesn’t just say she conducts business with integrity—she means it. Just three months ago I found the prospect of purchasing a home mysterious and terrifying, but Lois consistently went above and beyond, making the entire process a positive experience. Thanks to Lois, I am now comfortably moved into the perfect home for me. She truly has the best interest of her clients at heart, working tirelessly and with an impeccable degree of professionalism and expertise.”

Lisa, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2012

“Lois helped my wife and I sell a $500K+ home in N. Raleigh during very tough selling times. Likewise, she found a perfect home for us while we were selling and we ended up selling one day and buying the next day.
Our original selling contract fell through … Lois kept things alive although I had given up. She kept her cool when I didn’t. She got the contract back on track after a couple of weeks and it all worked out w/out us selling at distressed price.
This is the 11th house we’ve bought and 10th we’ve sold. That’s a lot of realtors. Lois is the most dedicated and professional agent we’ve ever worked with, hands down. I strongly recommend her to anyone buying or selling.”

John, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2010.

“On short notice, Lois helped my husband and me through a difficult real estate transaction complicated by the bank, the seller, and the selling agent. She took the time to explain anything that we had questions about (and we had a lot of them!), made sure that we knew what we were getting into, and had a great network of folks – inspectors, broker, etc. – who were fabulous, as well. We have already recommended her to our friends, will continue to do so, and will return to Lois whenever we need an agent in the future. She’s the best!”

Anna, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2011.

“Lois has been wonderful in advising us over the past several years as we have sold my mother-in-laws home, fixed up a condo and proceeded to consider options related to renting or selling the unit. We have felt very comfortable in our considerations of this because we know Lois has our best interest in mind. A+ rating for knowledge of market, support, and service to clients. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

James, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2009, and hired Lois more than once.

“Lois Magee is a true professional. Her fund of knowledge regarding the real estate market is exceptional, and she uses it to bring a true advantage to her clients. Her strong attention to detail ensures a best case scenario and timely outcome for those fortunate enough to benefit from her representation. I recommend her enthusiastically and without reservation.”

Cayce, Manager and Mortgage Banker Raleigh, was with another company when working with Lois at Northside Realty

“Lois Magee helped me relocate my business. Her expertise and creative thinking were a blessing. I’ll certainly use Lois again when I next need real estate advice.”

Gerry, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2009

“Our home-buying experience with Lois Magee was terrific from start to finish. From the first visit to the house through closing, Lois clearly had our best interests at heart. She negotiated the price with the sellers politely but aggressively, relying extensively on her knowledge of the North Raleigh market to our advantage. She was extremely helpful in suggesting inspectors to go through the house, and in our case oversaw the 11th hour replacement of a leaky septic tank that her inspector discovered. She also smoothly handled some last-second details on the mortgage transaction itself prior to closing when the mortgage company made some errors in their closing documents. Based on my experience with Lois, I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Triangle area.”

James, hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2005

If you choose to work with Lois you will not be disappointed! My husband and I enlisted Lois’s services to find a home in the Raleigh area. We presented her with numerous challenges: We were house-hunting remotely from Pennsylvania, we had a short time frame given the short transition time to my new job in Raleigh, we had only a few days to identify a home, and we had very specific requirements for our future home that included a first floor master suite, a first floor guest bedroom, a very open kitchen-dining-family room floor plan within a specific price range. Lois achieved that important balance between bringing a reasonable number of homes to our attention and being thorough and selective in terms of our home criteria. She was fully accommodating to our demanding time frame both during our limited few days for house hunting and throughout the entire process culminating in closing on a home that we truly love. Lois also provided complete assistance along the way including being a strong advocate for our interests as buyers. In particular, she encouraged us to request a separate roof inspection which in fact identified some roof defects that were attended to by the builder prior to closing. Throughout all of this, Lois was extremely personable and an absolute pleasure to work with. It is no wonder she was so highly recommended!

Margery hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2013

Lois is a consummate residential real estate professional. She has a tremendous amount of experience and is very knowledgeable. No detail is too small and she is exceedingly thorough every step of the way.

I first recommended Lois to my parents 18 months ago before they moved from Hartford, Connecticut to Raleigh. It took them 12 months to actually relocate here. Upon their arrival 6 months ago Lois took over showing them a number of homes that helped educate them on home value. My parents just closed on a lovely home that suits them perfectly.

Lois also surrounds herself with a team of seasoned professionals that support her with all aspects of due diligence such as home inspectors, contractors, vendors, lawyers, electricians etc. Last but not least Lois has the patience of a Saint! Thank you Lois!

Mike’s parents hired Lois as a Real Estate Agent in 2013

My first contact with Lois was well over a year ago when it was decided that my family and I would be relocating to the Raleigh, NC triangle area.

Even though Lois was aware that our move would not take place until late 2013, she was still very helpful and diligent in providing house listings as well as general information regarding the various cities in the area.

When it came time to actually look at houses with the intent to purchase, Lois proved best in class service and was the consummate professional.

After living our whole lives in Michigan, we are now in the process of packing up for our move to Raleigh, NC in the next week. I can honestly say that Lois has made this experience a positive one.

So for anyone looking to move to the Raleigh, I would highly recommend that you give Lois a call.
