Navigating a purchase when you aren't in the area, let alone the state is not easy! Fortunately this turned out to be the easiest process thanks to Danielle. She was on top of all the deadlines, arranged all the appointments, examined everything we needed and always gave honest feedback which I truly appreciated. I look forward to an extended friendship!
Christi & Bill Campbell, Duck
We first met Danielle over five years ago. She worked tirelessly and with endless patience to find us the perfect beach home, which we ultimately purchased in Whalehead. Being an out of market buyer, Danielle made logistics easy and always accommodated our schedule. She responded quickly to every communication, always offering dialogue that was insightful and taking care to highlight information that could have easily been overlooked. Purchasing a home in a new market can be a daunting task, however, Danielle’s leadership, guidance, transparency, and experience made the process seem easy. As with any real estate transaction, our deal had a few stressful moments. However, at each moment Danielle was a step ahead, laying groundwork and presenting ideas that not only helped us remain calm, but also steered the deal to a successful and timely conclusion. Danielle is an absolute expert in her craft including, but not limited to, knowledge of the local area, real estate pricing, offer negotiations, post-offer process through closing, and post-closing considerations. She literally helped us with every facet of the deal, from developing an understanding of our desired home, through thinking through post-closing issues. In addition to her technical expertise, her customer service was off the charts. We strongly agree with other reviews; Danielle is, by far, the best real estate agent we have had the privilege of working with.
Joe & Jennifer Hassan
We recently made the decision to buy a home in the Outer Banks. Danielle’s knowledge and advice were invaluable. She took the time to get to know us and worked hard to help find just the right home. Once we did, she kept everything organized to make sure our closing stayed on course. I know if we are ever in the market again, Danielle will be the person we call.
Kristie & Stan Lin
We found Danielle quite by chance but now know it was by the grace of God! During a lengthy 1031 exchange process, Danielle helped our family secure the perfect vacation home/rental property on the Outer Banks of NC. We could not recommend her more highly; she has sold a home for our daughter as well!
Danielle is an expert in her field; the most professional, responsible, responsive, enthusiastic, efficient, organized real estate agent! Never waivering during a three year process, our agent provided over 50 properties for review, in an even-handed, non-judgemental manner, showing over 20 of these from over a 20 mile radius, unfazed by several course changes in location and desire. She kept our search on her agenda, even sending newly listed property details from her personal vacation in Italy! Furthermore, she arranged for us to see this property through another agent! Once our property was identified, she was timely, key in the negotiations, yet never pushed us beyond our limits.
Immediately following the purchase offer,
Danielle prepared a time line, provided an extensive list of professional options for every aspect of the purchase process, from home inspectors, insurance agents, closing attorneys to maintenance technicians. She was always ahead of every deadline, even met with service technicians at the property when we could not be present. A month after closing, she is still following up with warranty repair issues uncovered through home inspection. Danielle is undoubtedly the best real estate agent anywhere. Her commitment to her clients is unparalleled while maintaining her oath to ethics, the highest of standards, and impeccable moral character. Thank you for the opportunity to write a review!
Tommy & Nancy Flythe
We worked with Danielle for 3 years to find the right house. She was very patient with us and always had good advice and good insight. We purchased a vacation home in Corolla and would be hard pressed to be happier.
Anne & Case Reed, Corolla
When Ken & I decided to sell our beloved beach house after 30 years we wanted a realtor who would represent us and our house in the best way possible. Danielle Taylor exceeded our expectations in very way. She knew the area, and helped us price our house correctly. She explained everything thoroughly and made the process easy. Our house sold very quickly and we know that Danielle was instrumental in making that happen. She was great to work with and we would highly recommend her.
Ken and Sharon Smith, Duck
We have vacationed at the Outer Banks for 30 years and during that time we have grown to love the beauty, serenity and amenities that the OBX offers. While we were always “guests” visiting for just one week at a time, almost from our first visit we dreamed of owning a home at the beach. However, with a growing family and home prices way out of our reach, we thought it would always be that – a dream.
However, things changed over the past few years and with the drop in home prices and low interest rates, nice homes that had been way out of our reach were suddenly now affordable! Starting last fall, we began seriously looking at homes online and decided in early May to spend a weekend at the OBX exploring locations, homes and lots, to see if this was something that we really wanted to do. Providentially, we saw a property that we liked online, contacted the listing agent, Danielle Taylor, and began a wonderful and exciting journey with her through the summer as we did indeed purchase our dream home in Kill Devil Hills in mid-August!
Danielle was extremely helpful and supportive all through the entire process. At the very beginning, she helped us to focus on exactly what we wanted for this home and then guided us through the process of selecting homes to view. Her knowledge and experience in the local real estate market were invaluable to us. She was always available to speak with us by phone, online or in person – being from out of town, that was a great assurance to us! As we began to focus on certain homes that we liked, Danielle was able to give us detailed information on the properties and if there were any questions or problems, she would always dig for the answers and follow through with anything we needed. She was truly our “eyes and ears” at the beach! And finally, when we contracted to purchase our home, Danielle skillfully guided us through the complicated process of home inspections and closing…. even driving to Chesapeake City, VA to resolve an issue with the original deed to the home – she went way above and beyond our expectations!
If you are considering purchasing a home – or selling one – we could not give you a stronger recommendation for Danielle. She always made us feel like we were her ONLY clients, although we know she was extremely busy with others. Danielle’s expertise and knowledge of the local market, her connections to reliable resources (inspections, insurance, banks, closing attorneys), and her ALWAYS positive and upbeat “Can Do” attitude all contributed to fulfilling our dream! And she can do the same for you!
Brian & Carol Sweeney
Danielle took what is often a difficult and trying experience and made it enjoyable. She is a consummate professional and extremely knowledgeable not just in her profession but also in her community. Danielle has a knack of mixing humor as well as knowledge into the searching process which allows you to spend time with a friend while you search. Once the home was found she was very organized and stayed on top of each detail allowing us to focus on the big picture and ensured nothing was dropped or missed. I would recommend her a thousand times over.
"From the first time we reached out to Danielle via email she has been very responsive. I think we connected within 24 hours of finding her information on the internet (other agents were slower or did not respond at all). We looked at homes in the OBX for two years, we live in MA so it was a project to schedule time around our jobs and family obligations, she made every trip we planned work and was incredibly efficient with our time. She quickly knew what we were looking for, sometimes more than we did, and she would not waste our time with homes that didn't have potential. We made three separate trips and each moved us closer to what we wanted. Once we found the right house she was a masterful negotiator, did better than we expected. Again, being out of state, we couldn't be there for the inspections, final walk through, etc. Danielle was our eyes and ears and stayed in touch daily. She also mapped out for us everything that had to happen from making the offer formal to final closing, and even guided us as we negotiated with the rental company in preparation for ownership. She make excellent referrals for so many things, restaurants, shopping, mortgage broker, insurance company, inspector, etc. She never steered us wrong. She was also a great voice or reason which we needed as this was a second home purchase with some emotion attached. She welcomed all the family members we dragged along as well!"
Larry & Kristine Hazzard, Corolla
I was also going to tell you how pleased we were with your efforts in selling our house and, if we had the opportunity, we would highly recommend you to any who are in the market to buy or sell in the outer banks. I feel fortunate to have been on your mailing list for your market updates, which led us to select you as our realtor. Thanks again for efforts in selling our house.
Larry & Mary Ellis
We recently sold a parcel of land in Sound-Sea Village, Duck, NC through Danielle Taylor at Beach Realty & Construction. Danielle was great to work with and took a lot of time and effort, without any pressure toward us, to give us all the information we needed to not only decide to sell the property but also to decide on a listing price. She also put in extra effort to research relevant questions concerning the initial platting of the property when it was purchased by family years ago. In addition, Danielle was very understanding of our sentimental attachment to the Outer Banks and the emotional element of parting with the property after so many years. We would, without hesitation, recommend Danielle Taylor to anyone interested in selling or purchasing real estate in the Outer Banks.
Vivian & Anthony Griego, Duck, NC
Danielle is extremely professional, very attentive to details, easy and fun to work with. Danielle was extremely honest, and offered us valuable advice. She was always very quick to respond to our many phone calls, emails and texts. Danielle always went above and beyond, even nights and weekends! She has a lot of experience working in real estate and definitely knows her market. We could not have gotten a better agent, she was very proactive in the whole process of selling our home with great results. We highly recommend Danielle to anyone. We can't thank her enough.
Connie & Gary Gray, Duck, NC
Danielle's market knowledge, work ethic, and attention to detail has made us clients for life. Her professionalism and positive demeanor are unrivaled. My wife and I really challenged Danielle to balance our long-term investment and ownership acquisition objectives. We were impressed not only with her ability to make the right deal happen, but as important, her ability to steer us away from deals that weren't right for us. It is not an easy ask to have your real estate agent to find you a property that you can use for yourself AND will make your money - Danielle didn't just find us one, she found us two! My profession is real estate development and Danielle is the best broker I have worked with in my career - commercial or residential. I cannot recommend Danielle highly enough.
Eric & Carrie Scott, Corolla
From our first meeting with Danielle we found her to be highly professional, knowledgeable, courteous, kind, caring and very responsive to our needs. She always made us feel she had our best interest at heart and would do all she could to help us find our beach cottage. She patiently worked with us to find a cottage to suit our requirements and budget. When we finally decided to place an offer on the cottage we chose, she was successful in getting our initial offer accepted, and then continued to check on the cottage up until our actual closing since Hurricane Matthew paid a visit to the OBX. Working with Danielle was a very positive experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in the real estate market in the OBX.
Sharan & Cliff Everton, Corolla
From the time we called Danielle to list our house, she was prompt, super professional, honest, on the ball with comps, photos, everything without being too pushy or negative. We had 4 generations living in our home and she gave us plenty of notice and supported/CALMED us when we needed it most! She was definitely OUR advocate and always willing to do whatever needed to be done to help get the house sold. When our offer came in and was accepted, she gave us a timeline of what to expect and notified us about what needed to be done at what time. We appreciated her experience so much that we're using her in the building of our NEXT residence on the beach!!
Jackie and Ken Capecci, Kitty Hawk NC
Danielle patiently waited for a year while our house was listed with another agent. Her knowledge and professionalism along with her persistence and hard work were apparent from the beginning. Danielle sold our property in one month in a tough market, and she stayed on top of every detail so that we could settle one month later! I would recommend Danielle to any seller or buyer in the Outer Banks!
Rick and Tracy Polhemus, Pine Island
Danielle Taylor is by far one of the TOP brokers in the Outer Banks. My husband and I are pretty demanding and being a broker in another state, I knew I needed to find someone who took extremely good care of their customers. Danielle went above and beyond the call of duty, updating us weekly on our showings, on the current state of the market, giving us plenty of feedback and most important, taking care of our home as if it was her own. Once we listed our home with Danielle, it was under contract in a number of weeks! As our deal was a bit challenging at time, she stayed with us and guided us every step of the way. I knew I could always get her on the phone if I needed her. Her knowledge on the state of the market in the Outer Banks is wonderful. I highly recommend Danielle to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Outer Banks. She is my realtor for life.
Lauren and Mike Anderson
It's been a pleasure working with you. You are at the top of our list for real estate agents on the Outer Banks. Your professionalism and level of communication is greatly appreciated.
Rich and Dianne Petrosky
It was a pleasure working with Danielle, a true professional. From our initial communication, through closing, Danielle was well prepared, responsive and proactive allowing us to close within 20 days of our offer being accepted. I highly, highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for a property in the Outer Banks.
Chris & Cheryl Stolarski - 2015
Danielle is just so good at her job and I am so incredibly thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her. She is thoughtful, smart, responsive, organized, and very professional and seemed to bring her A-game to our very challenging situation every single day. If I were her, I may not have agreed to take us on as a client as the situation was very difficult. But she stuck with us through thick and thin and was able to find us a great solution that worked well for us the sellers and for the buyers. Danielle really changed our lives with her hard work. I am so incredibly thankful that she helped us the way she did.
Danielle was impressive from the very first time we met her. She had done her homework and was ready to listen to our needs but also recommended her thoughts. She said she would show our house and give weekly updates. She did both. We had more showings in the 3 months that she was our agent then any other time the house was on the market. Danielle will get it done for you!
Sue & John Payne
Danielle Taylor did an excellent job for us as listing agent on the sale of our property on Roanoke Island. She proved herself to be incredibly smart and resourceful during the entire process. Danielle communicated with us on a frequent basis and kept us aware of changing market conditions with thoughtful and insightful market analysis; her professionalism and experience are top tier. She was an absolute joy to work with and will be representing us in any and all transactions that we may pursue in the future along the Outer Banks.
The Davenports, Clarksville MD
Danielle is one of the nicest people that I have ever known. We knew each other only thru emails before I even decided to sell my home and purchase another one just a block away. She knew thru these emails that we were looking to downsize someday and what I wanted. The day the smaller home went on the market, she contacted me and we had a signed contract 14 days later.
We then put our home on the market and went to settlement on September 2nd. and as she said it was a deal made it heaven (with a little help from St. Joseph) and a lot of help and hard work from Danielle.
I cannot say enough good things about Danielle, her responsiveness to my texts and emails 24/7, her knowledge of the real estate market, her integrity, her kindness but most of all she is so personable which makes you feel like you are her only client in the world and she would do anything for you.
Thank you Danielle, we consider our selves very lucky to have had you help us move onto the next stage of our lives.
Sandra and John Green
We lucked out when we had the good chance of meeting Danielle at an open house. Her friendly manner and super diligent (“I’m on it!) attitude made her a joy to work with, especially since we were from out of state. We have worked with many agents over the years and her competency is unmatched. She was always ahead of us with information, numbers, negotiation strategies and suggestions that worked in our favor. We would use her again in a heartbeat and cannot recommend her highly enough. She will make your transaction easier than you ever thought possible!
Michelle and Derek Peters
We just purchased our dream house in Corolla, in the Outer Banks and I have to acknowledge that the reason we have it is entirely because of Danielle Taylor. Danielle is an amazing realtor and person. She has an unbeatable energy level and engagement that I believe is due to her passion to help others, in this case fulfilling their dreams. It took us a long time to find the house that we really wanted because of the various key features we had in mind but Danielle was always very supportive and confident that we would find it one day. One of the unique features of Danielle is her ability to capture and analyze our interests and tastes and after a few interactions she truly got to know us. This was extremely important since we live out of state and would have to deal with almost everything remotely. Danielle kept in contact with us with new properties and we would contact her also about some that we would see in our searches. Danielle was always extremely responsive and sincere and she would not hesitate to discourage us to pursue with properties that would not fit our key preferences. She always visited, analyzed the property and the situations in detail and she would present us with a list of advantages and disadvantages. Once a property of interest was identified, Danielle would proceed with an offer very efficiently and professionally. Once the house was under contract, Danielle led the whole process remarkably, recommending an incredible team that took care of the loans, insurance, inspections and closing very smoothly. Danielle was so organized and on the top of everything that she made the whole process of purchasing a house remotely a pleasurable and worry-free experience for us. I have no doubts that we could not find a better realtor than Danielle.
Ligia and Mark Williams
We cannot say enough about how wonderful it was working with Danielle. We recently bought a piece of property in Duck. Our “long-distance” working relationship was a breeze. Danielle was responsive to emails and phone calls and always followed up within the time frame promised. She was straight forward in answering questions, proactively provided information to us and always put our best interest first. Once the agreement of sale was accepted, Danielle put our “to do” list together and then managed us through the due diligence process. She made it so easy for us!! We would highly recommend Danielle!
Barb & Ray Dyson
If we ever sell our house or know anyone who is in the market for a realtor at the Outer Banks, we would not hesitate to refer them to Danielle. We have bought and sold real estate in South Carolina, North Carolina and New York and no realtor we've worked with has come close to Danielle's work ethic, honesty, determination, organization and her ability to listen and respond appropriately at all times. She is truly an outstanding professional and you are fortunate to have her represent your company. Now we look forward to years of having Danielle be our friend.
Tom and Debbie Riker
I would not have the incredible property I have had it not been for Danielle Taylor. Working through a long and complex distressed sale process, Danielle was on top of all information. She consistently provided sound advice and proactively problem solved as to get me to the end zone- the purchase of a fabulous Corolla property. If ever there was an agent that went above and beyond, it was Danielle."
Danielle was very professional and thorough. Most important to me was doing business via email since we were not in town. It was a painless and efficient process. I always felt she represented our best interests in every phase of the purchase process . If any one asks, Danielle Taylor would be our recommended OBX Realtor! . ..Thanks again, Danielle, for your very professional help.
Charlie Oldfield & Laura Sanlorenzo
Working with Danielle was the best home buying experience I’ve ever had! She quickly understood what I was looking for and worked hard to ensure we made the very best use of our time. I have Danielle to thank for helping me get a wonderful home.
We can't thank you enough for all your patience and hard work. We love our new house and its all thanks to you! We will keep in touch as we hope you will as well ..... With love and thanks.

Sheila and I had been 'dreaming about' getting our own place on the Outer Banks for a long, long time. But living six hundred miles away, and having three kids in college, there always seemed a better place to put both our money and our attention. When we finally decided to "do it" we were so fortunate to find Danielle. She was not a pushy sales person but rather insisted we see everything available on the market so we could make the best decision possible. Danielle was able to walk us through the myriad of requirements and procedures that it takes to buy a house on the Outer Banks. Danielle was always upbeat and capable. "Don't worry, I'll figure that out for you", was always her stock answer, or "can I take that piece off your plate for you?" We don't think we would ever have gotten it done if it were not for Danielle's help at every step of the way. We have now made our dream come true and are looking forward to spending this summer in our own house at the beach! Thank you, Danielle!
John and Sheila Aubin
Danielle's knowledge of and enthusiasm for the Outer Banks helped make our purchase very enjoyable. She was pleasant, prompt and thorough,entertained all of our ideas and concerns and answered our questions after researching issues when needed. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Danielle Taylor is a professional of uncommon integrity, tireless enthusiasm and uncanny perception. She consistently anticipated my needs as a buyer in a tumultuous market and provided calm counsel derived of competent empirical analysis....She is now, and forever will be, my real estate representative"
Thomas and Jill Herman
Thanks for your help, and keeping us informed with every step along the way.
If we have the chance, we would most certainly recommend you.
