What Our Clients Say About Us

What Our Clients Say About Us


Our agents impress our clients day after day. Check out all of this great feedback we’ve received.

“After our home was listed with another firm for six months, we called Chantel. Murray immediately formulated a new strategy for marketing our home including new pictures, description, pricing, etc. His expertise immediately evident and lead to showings right off the bat. Within two weeks, we had a full price offer. Murray guided us throughout the sales and closing process, was readily available to answer all questions, and stayed on top of all the parties involved in the closing every step of the way. He made the process as simple as possible and we would recommend Murray and the entire Chantel Ray method to anyone.”

“Angie made me very comfortable and from the beginning I knew I could trust her judgment and professional advice. She was readily available when we needed her, and was always calm and collected in the face of obstacles.”

“I loved Angie from day 1 – after a couple of days working with her, I was excited about becoming a homeowner in Virginia Beach. She was beyond patient when we had our 3 year old with us – and even brought him toys and let him sit on her lap and color (he loves her too). We both felt that she truly had our best interests in mind the entire time – and was the total opposite of a pushy salesperson trying to make a commission.

None of this would have ended with us purchasing our home without this team – and they got us an amazing deal on a house in a neighborhood we thought we could never afford.

We (mostly me) called and texted Angie and Andrew constantly with annoying questions and checking in, and they never seemed frustrated no matter how many times I asked the same question. I really appreciated them being flexible and communicating via text or email, and just making the entire process simple and stress free.”

“Madonna greatly exceeded our expectations. From day one, she was receptive to our needs, wants, and budget. Her attention to detail in identifying potential shortfalls (home construction), the local housing market, and the interviewing of the neighbors made our home selection easy. Within a few weeks, we made a fair offer for our home and earned $4,000 in “instant equity” based off her recommendations. After our negotiations, she has been keeping us informed on every transaction with home repairs and ensuring the seller is taking care of responsibilities agreed upon. To Madonna’s credit we will recommend Chantel Ray to all of our friends and family.”

“Paul has been a tremendous help and is a true gentleman. He was always professional and if I ever need a realtor again I would use him.”

“Murray has been an awesome agent and was very knowledgeable. His experience and knowledge was extremely helpful during the selling process. I highly recommend him to future home sellers.”

“Madonna helped our family find our home and we are so grateful for all of the help she has given us! She was wonderful to work with and she made sure everything went smoothly! She answered all of our question even after closing. From start to finish, our experience has been amazing with Madonna and Chantel Ray. We will tell all of our friends about her!!”

“Madonna was excellent every step of the way. She was approachable, knowledgeable, extremely friendly, and gave us exemplary customer service!”

“Dave was awesome!! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to working with him in the future when we sell our rental property.”

“We started looking at fix and flip houses a year ago with Madonna and after looking at several houses with her over that month, we settled on a house in Norfolk. We closed on it in late January of last year and started the rehab process. The rehab took several months and by the time it was done, Madonna listed the house. It took about three months to sell it and about another month or so to finally close on the property. Madonna kept us informed every time there was a showing and offer and offered us timely advice on how to proceed. We would not have gotten this house sold without her assistance. SHE ROCKS!”

“Mr. McDaniel has been a pleasure to work with and has made what would be a stressful process very simple and stress free. I would recommend him to anyone.”

“From the initial meeting to the signing of the closing documents, Mrs. Hoskins has been an absolute dream to work with! She was extremely professional, courteous and respectful of our family and in handling the sale of our property. Jordan made us feel comfortable to ask any question about the processes and procedures, no matter how crazy the question, without feeling offended or degraded by my lack of knowledge. I would recommend Mrs. Jordan Hoskins to everyone, even though, I am sure any professional at Chantel Ray can do just as well. I can’t wait to buy our next home with the assistance of Jordan! She is AWESOME…really!”

“Just after we walked into the front door, we were greeted and met Paul who actually seemed happy to listen to 15 minutes of our questions and demands. And we actually walked through the exact house we ended up deciding to purchase that afternoon with Paul. It still took us personally several weeks to decide beyond a shadow of a doubt which house we really loved the most. Paul was always just a call, text or email away with any and all of our questions and was always ready to meet and take us to see the houses we wanted to look at. This was our first home purchase and I am sure all of the horror stories I’ve heard from others in the past where I used to live were true about buying and closing on a house, but for us, we never noticed any kind of stresses like that. Paul made everything happen extremely smoothly, step by step, and now we have our own home.”

“I wish I could give David more stars because he is and was that excellent. He did a great job of giving me advice without influencing or pushing my decisions. I don’t think I would’ve found the wonderful home I’m in now without him. I’m actually excited to recommend him to others because I know they will be just as satisfied as I am!!!”

“Sarah did a fantastic job looking out for our interests and handling all of the necessary documentation needed for all the prep work all the way to our closing. I will definitely give her name to anyone I know that is looking for property. You have an outstanding employee that represents your company in the highest regards.”

“Madonna had all the answers for every question I had and anything she could not answer she got the answer and got back to me extremely fast. I was super nervous about buying a house because I’m only 23 and in the navy, but she made everything so easy with my crazy work hours.”

“Justin did an awesome job in getting our house sold very fast! He is awesome. Would highly recommend him to my friends and family.”

“Our agent did an awesome job and we enjoyed working with her.”

“Paul was awesome. He was very professional and attentive. He showed me houses whenever I requested. I would use Paul again and recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. I was highly satisfied with my experience.”

“David helped us through a very difficult sale of a HUD home, after looking for several months. He was very patient and accommodating. He always made time for us and met us during all hours.”

“We had a great experience working with Ben. He was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the entire buying process.”

“The process was actually not as painful as I had imagined. Justin was very efficient and easy to get in touch with. He addressed all my questions and concerns in a timely manner and was understanding with regards to stressful situations. I will use Justin for all of my future home ventures. I would give more stars if I could.”

“Kory has been an absolute joy to work with. Ms. Miles has exceeded my greatest expectations in regards to the exceptional standard that Chantel Ray has set for her profession and her associates. As a an extremely busy mother, full-time registered nurse, and full-time student it has been difficult for me to navigate the complicated and time-consuming process of home buying and selling. Kory has streamlined this process for me, taking the time to answer all my questions and readily seeking out answers for those that she does not have knowledge of. Ms. Miles has taken much of her own precious time to ensure that every transaction has been commenced seamlessly with as little interruption to my day-to-day activities. An example of Kory’s superior commitment to customer service is how she was present in lieu of my own attendance for the moisture and termite inspection that was required by the buying agent. Kory was not requested nor was she required to perform any type of cleaning or tidying up of the property in preparation of the inspection. Kory did just that! She removed debris from my lawn, swept my hardwood floors, and washed the dishes in the sink. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the opportunity to work with this individual.”

“My husband and I walked into Chantel Ray on a Monday night and met, Erin. She was enthusiastic, friendly, and genuine. By Friday, we already had 6 houses lined up to view. By Tuesday, we made an offer on the first house we saw! While we had done extensive research beforehand, Erin’s listings for us clearly showed that she listened to our wants and needs. Once we made the offer, it was full speed ahead! She was always available and it was easy to communicate with her via phone, text, and email. Erin was EXTREMELY diligent and persistent in communicating with the seller’s agent as well as making sure that the requested repairs by the VA Loan Appraiser and us were completed in an unusually timely manner. As first-time homebuyer’s with a modest budget, she made us feel valued and important. I’m so thankful that we connected with Erin. Her loyalty and faith in God was evident in the way she handled our home-buying experience. It was so refreshing to work with someone who was not only professional but also fun and funny! Her energy, sincerity, and optimism are infectious. We need more sales people like her in the world! Our experience was everything BUT stressful. We HIGHLY recommend Erin and look forward to maintaining a friendship with her moving forward. Thank you!!”

“Angie was extremely helpful with every concern or question. Definitely plan on referring friends to Angie Clark in the future. VERY pleased with our experience as a whole!”

“Working with Larry Cox made finding and buying a home easy. He was able to find the type of home that I wanted and point me in the area I wanted to live. Having his knowledge on the local area and home buying was a blessing, especially for me as a first time home buyer.”

“Mrs. Lewis made the experience quite nice. She was flexible with our work schedules and very prompt on answering any questions we had.”

“We are first time home buyers and we were very satisfied with our service.”

“PROFESSIONAL-Gemma presents herself very well in regards to appearance and intellect. She has strong communication skills that built confidence in my attitude and eased fear of buying my first home. PUNCTUAL-Gemma was always early to our meetings and AVAILABLE to work around my hectic Navy schedule. She was quick to respond to me in all regards of the process. INITIATIVE-Gemma always extended her assistance to clarify the process for me and went beyond her due diligence by providing evidence and resources for me to better understand mortgages. RELIABLE-Gemma was personable and always responsive to texts and calls in a quick and reasonable manner. With my parents and family being in California and unable to support me in this process, I’d go as far as saying Gemma made me feel comfortable throughout from property search to closing. I felt like I had a friend AND an agent. I would recommend Gemma to anyone who would approach me for a referral. And Gemma, if you see this, I can’t thank you enough for your sympathy in my time of “mourning.” Even after closing, you were available to make sure everything was going well with the property. I really appreciate your help buying my first home!”

“Mr. McDaniel has been a pleasure to work with and has made what would be a stressful process very simple and stress free. I would recommend him to anyone.”

“Great job. 32 days from listing to closing!”

“Ben Lynch was very professional throughout the entire process. He is a hard worker and I have already recommended him to my family for their real estate needs.”

“The entire process has been a great experience. Since I was new to selling a home, Erica has been a wealth of knowledge on what to expect and answering any questions I had. She was available when I needed her.”

“Angie is absolutely amazing. She has made this process so enjoyable and painless. We are so grateful for all of Angie’s help!”

“Myrna was very knowledgeable and friendly. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

“Brenda has been awesome during the whole process, and she was very experienced and knowledgeable. She was very in tune with what we wanted, and she did not push us to buy anything that we did not want. She pointed out everything that may be a problem in the future and she was very helpful. Brenda needs a raise!”

“My experience with Chantel Ray was great. Justin and team were very informative and very thorough. They explained everything in great detail and I was made aware every step of they way.”

 

“Kathleen was amazing throughout the entire experience. She was very knowledgable and was like family while we worked with her! My wife and I could not have asked for a better professional to guide us through buying our home.”

“Janet was great. She was very responsive on our first showing, even though it was not the house we ended up buying. She was very knowledgeable and helped make our first home buying experience very easy.”

“Sean was extremely professional, friendly, and patient. He helped me find the right place and helped in every way he could in a timely fashion. He was never bothered by my plethora of questions and with my being new to buying a home I had plenty of them. Thank you for everything.”

“Murray was very easy to contact at any point of the day. He was very informative on what he was doing to sell my house. Overall, this was a great experience.”
