Testimonials

Ellen was a wonderful realtor to work with. Refreshing approach to selling homes. She believes the home will sell itself. No fluff no stuff. She is honest and straight forward. We appreciated this about her. She made herself available to us from the start and never let up all the way through closing. She was informative about the area since we were moving from out of state and this was a big help. Our daughter recommended her because she had been her buyer's agent. I appreciated how she had helped my daughter with the purchase of her 1st home. So Ellen thank you on two counts!. Happy Home Owner for Ellen Hough
Our experience with Ellen Hough as our realtor was wonderful. Moving can be a stressful time especially if you are moving from another state. Ellen was very helpful and very knowledgeable about this area. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was always there for us if we had any questions or concerns and made us feel like we were her only clients! Ellen Hough did a outstanding job and I would recommend you to use her as your Realtor. Noi L. for Ellen Hough
Ellen is without a doubt the BEST agent we've ever had the pleasure of doing business with. Not only did she take us around to numerous (14+) houses in the Jacksonville, NC area, she was extremely honest. Ellen was straight forward with her opinions of the places she was showing and we were so happy to have someone so open and helpful. She stuck with us through six weeks of a battle to buy a "short sale" and then put up no fight when we backed out of the short sale and moved on to the home we did eventually buy. I look forward to all of our future business with Ellen and her wonderful team at EXIT Independence Realty. She's not only our buying agent but her company is also our property manager for our rental property. She's amazing. You'll love her...happy home buying! Nikki L. for Ellen Hough

What Are You Looking for in a Real Estate Agent?

What are you looking for in a real estate agent?

If you are like most people, you want a real estate agent that fits your personality.

You don’t want an overly aggressive agent if you are a mild mannered person.  And you don’t want a jokester if you’re the serious type.

That’s one of the reasons that I like the agents at Exit Independence Realty in Jacksonville, NC.  You have a variety of agents to choose from.

Ellen Hough, has been selling real estate long enough to know all the ins and outs, she is very involved with the Jacksonville Board of Realtors and has served on several positions on the board in recent years.  She is also the wife of a former Camp Lejeune Marine so she understands the stress that goes along with a cross country move with young children in tow.

Alexis Pierson, is the humanitarian, she likes to stay active in local charities and usually volunteers for one or two meaningful causes a year.  Whether it be Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life or adopting a family for Christmas, Alexis puts her heart in it, just as she does for her clients.

Christina Asbury, is an Accredited Land Consultant and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty to get the best deal for you.   She is also a numbers girl and likes to give you all the information that you need to make a well thought out decision about your newly constructed home or  how to price the your home  to sell in today’s market.

Tim Abbey, is a former Marine and has several years of experience as a property manager, so he can answer your questions on selling your home or renting it out.

And should you decide to rent your home or investment property, Lyn Bigelow’s dedicated professionalism and years of property management experience will take the pressure of your property concerns off your hands.

Everyone at Exit Independence Realty in Jacksonville, NC believes in good old fashioned customer service and whomever you chose as your real estate agent in the company will give you their best, and strive to get you into a home that fits your needs, or to help you to sell the home that you’re in.
