We are the North Carolina Coastal Real Estate Experts, but don’t take our word for it. Below you’ll find actual testimonials submitted from our clients with regards to their experience working with us to buy or sell their homes.

We worked with Harold Gilbert and greatly appreciated his expertise, knowledge of the area and professionalism. He showed no hesitation at all when we asked to view a second house the next day even though he had to come from Morehead City to show us the house. Would highly recommend!

We were in a very difficult time in our lives and needed to short sale our home. A very close friend had been in the same type situation and told us about NC Coastal Properties. And how Gena and Harold Gilbert helped them through the whole process. From the beginning until the closing they were professional and caring. They helped make a difficult time less stressful. We cant say enough about the quality of people they are. If you need someone that will work with and for you we highly recommend Gena and Harold

We could not have asked for a better or more patient realtor. We would recommend Harold Gilbert to anyone seeking coastal property. 

Gena and Harold are an absolute pleasure to work with!! Besides being very knowledgeable about the real estate market as a whole, they are continually there to help. Even though they are no doubt very busy, they always take the time to answer any and all questions we have as if we were their only client-they are both prompt and thorough in their correspondence. Throughout the process of selling our home, they have continually kept us up to date every step of the way. They have always put our needs before their own, just as their slogan says; their goal is to help us, even if that means sacrifice. Thank you to Gena Gilbert Real Estate for making an otherwise stressful process something that we didn’t feel like we were going through alone! I would recommend these realtors to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!

Gena and Harold are terrific! This is the third house they have sold for me in two years. They know the real estate business and they know how to successfully market a property to get it sold. They do a lot of work comparing market values and surrounding houses and give the seller or the buyer honest advice. They have an excellent reputation in the community and among their peers and they genuinely care about their clients. I definitely would use Gena and Harold if I move again – they are super!

Buying with you was a good experience. We’re hoping selling with you will be the same. Thanks

Stayed with us through alot of house searching until we found the right deal on a house. Professional and pleasant to deal with

Gina and Harold were so wonderful to work with. They were open to all our ideas and questions! I would use them again in a heart beat!

My experience with this company has been that the representatives are friendly and courteous when contacted.

Process was extreme well done and professional. We appreciate Gena and Harold being our agents, giving us sage advise and navigating us through the whole process. As distant buyers we delegated the process and were very pleased with their communication, attention to detail, follow up and keeping our interest foremost. We appreciate their style and courtesy in finding us our dream condo, without being overly aggressive.

Great Realtors, Great Values, Great People and Great Friends

– Highly likely to recommend

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately

$225k in Swansboro, NC.


We began looking at the Crystal Coast area for retirement in 2007, and were very fortunate to link up with Gena and Harold Gilbert. They kept us informed on what was available in the area in our price range, and we would make quick trips to the coast where they would take us to view these homes. We purchased and moved into our current home in 2008 and were so thankful we had their skills to guide us through the challenges of the buying experience which had just become more complicated in late 2008.

They have the knowledge and expertise to deal with a changing market and are thoroughly familiar with the entire Crystal Coast area. They also have the patience and flexibility to deal with buyers (like us) who were totally unfamiliar with housing in the area. Having now lived in the area for 3 years, we truly recognize how fortunate we were to have selected Gena Gilbert Real Estate.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Morehead City, NC.


Gena and Harold are super and truly work very hard for their client. They always answered or returned my calls and took time to answer every question. Both of them were awesome about going to see MANY houses before I chose one. They know the Real Estate business inside and out and did a lot of advertising in various markets for my house. They are both extremely professional.

They showed my house a couple of time a week – every week. I also appreciated and enjoyed the newsletter they send – very helpful information. And they find out what you want in a home and then e-mail you house listings that you may be interested in. It saves the potential buyer a lot of time. Gena and Harold are super people – I just love them. I highly recommend them.

Showed home in 2007 in Mansfield, Morehead City, NC 28557.


Gena helped me purchase my first house in 2007. She was very helpful and patient during the entire process. She was easy to get a hold of and returned calls promptly. She even helped me out a lot two years later when I had trouble with my mortgage broker during a refinance. Gena has extensive local knowledge and has a wonderful team to back her up.
