Kate F. – Raleigh, NC
As new real estate investors, my husband and I weren’t exactly sure which direction we were headed in when we first started working with Carey. We were all over the place, from foreclosures to townhouses to lower-income multi-family properties. Carey read us well—she understood when we needed to figure things out on our own and when we needed to be “coached.” She offered great information about various areas of Raleigh (pros and cons) and pointed out things that we wouldn’t have considered otherwise. And when it came time for negotiations (first the offer, and then the due diligence period), she really championed for us. We were so fortunate to have Carey in our corner. Great experience!!
Another Happy Buyer/Seller!
Now that I'm out here looking at properties, I see my home would not have stood a chance. Thank you for telling me what I needed to hear and not what I wanted to hear during this process!

There aren’t enough words to describe how awesome Carey is. She is such a fantastic realtor and always completely on top of her game. She guided us through the daunting process of choosing neighborhoods we liked, seeing homes, knowing what to look for. Moving to the Raleigh area was a huge move for us coming from California, but we never doubted we were in the best hands with Carey. She made the whole process as easy on us as possible. Carey is simply fantastic.
Kiara C. – Raleigh, NC
Carey has such a welcoming personality. She was very helpful through this stressful process. We all know that we can get frustrated while looking for that perfect home, but Carey was understanding and knowledgeable during all this. She was always providing useful information and made sure we got the best of the best. I am very thank for her help in all of this.
Kali B. – Raleigh, NC
Carey was exactly what we needed in a realtor. She is very knowledgeable about the process and the triangle area market. She helped us get our townhouse on the market quickly and we sold in one day with multiple offers above asking price. When viewing houses I love that she gave my husband and I alone time to talk and process what we liked or didn’t like. Then she would ask us our opinion on the house before she ever gave any of her own opinion. She helped us through the long process of building a house. Carey was there to help and reassure me when picking out all the details for our new home. She answered all phone calls, emails, and texts very efficiently. She was always one step ahead, making sure everything was taken care of on the builders end. We would highly recommend Carey to anyone looking to buy or sale. She’s the best of the best!
Yvonne Watford-McKinney – From Knightdale, NC, to Raleigh, NC
I personally know several realtors, and they are good at their profession. But I do not know of a better realtor than Carey Rivers. Six months after my husband passed away, I began to think about moving from the home we shared together for 19 years. I met Carey at that time. She knew how difficult it was for me to leave the home where my husband and I had shared so much, and she was exceedingly patient through all of my starts and stops and changes of mind. Also, Carey knows the Raleigh metropolitan area inside and out, which enabled her to show me a variety of housing types. And she was with me every step of the way. Her advice was invaluable and I was able to move into a beautiful home in a safe and desirable area. But beyond all of that, Carey is a warm, friendly person whose ever-constant smile is infectious. She is a joy to be around. If I ever move again, I will call Carey. For me, there is no other realtor.
Tara – Cary, NC
Carey is a rock star! The market is literally crazy right now in this area but that didn't stop her from helping my husband and I find the perfect home and sell our existing home in 1 day. From her answering our late night requests to see houses that just came on the market to her answering my millions of questions throughout the process of buying and selling a house at the same time - closing on the same day no less! - she was always there for us and we couldn't be more thankful. If you are looking for someone to help guide you through the home buying/selling process, look no further than Carey, you will not be sorry! Good luck!
John Czinege – Raleigh, NC
We had a long sales cycle and survived some real testing ups and downs but Carey was with us for it all and fully supportive with good advice, management support. She was very responsive especially during the closing process where the schedule was a especially challenging and required lots of management and leadership which Carey provided and she navigated to a timely conclusion. Thank you Carey and job WELL DONE!
Stacy – Raleigh, NC
As a first time home buyer, I was extremely nervous about the process of looking for and buying a home. Carey helped me every step of the way by answering all my questions and giving me great advice on how to get an offer accepted in a very competitive market. Her advice lead to my success in getting a wonderful home! She also had a great team of people to recommend to me to ensure that my closing was on time - and it was. I was shocked by how smoothly everything went! I would highly recommend Carey Rivers as a realtor!
Melody – Raleigh, NC
Carey is awesome! Very knowledgeable and helpful. This was our first time buying a house and didn't know anything going into this process. Carey helped us every step of the way and when we had some issues pop up near closing, she expertly navigated us through them and got things done! Thanks so much, Carey! We are loving our new house!!
Richard and Patricia Edge – St Clairsville, Ohio
Carey did a super job finding us just the right house. Not only were we doing this long distance, we also had many special needs which had to be difficult. Also the fact that. The market was so hot! 2 or 3 offers on every place of interest. Thanks for everything.
Brad and Ashley Lewis – Maryland
Carey has been beyond our expectation as a realtor and now friend. She made the process of finding a new home in North Carolina effortless and we truly trusted her throughout the whole process. She provided us with suggestions, a different view point and an honest answers when buying our first home. With the help of Carey and Angela Drum Team Realtors, my husband and I were able to find our dream home and ready to pick up our roots in Maryland and settle down in North Carolina. We can't thank you enough Carey for everything you have done! You are great at what you do!
Donna S. – Raleigh, NC
From the moment you returned my call while on vacation in Hawaii with your family, to the text messages checking on my well being, I've been very impressed and thankful for the first class service you have provided me throughout this process. I couldn't hope for a better outcome than what I experienced with Fonville Morisey. Sold my house in one day at full ask and purchased the house of my dreams. Just one month later, I'm enjoying my new home! Thank you Carey for helping it to go smoothly. You're my go to realtor forever!
