“Kathryn and her Team at Green Key were amazing to work with! True real estate professionals that know how to get the job done. I especially liked the home staging service and the detailed home book Kathryn created for potential buyers. The home advertising materials were top notch and we would use Green Key again in a heart beat to buy or sell a future home on the crystal coast. Thank you Kathryn!!!”

“Kathryn and the team at Green Key came highly recommended from many folks from around the emerald coast. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and the most organized and professional agent I have ever worked with.

She is a true professional and has a talented team behind her. I strongly recommend Green Key Realty.”

Seller & Buyer Client, 2016 & 2017

“We met Kathryn through an unfortunate situation, we had lost our mom and we had to secure an agent who could achieve numerous objectives for the home we had to sell. We had scheduled 2 agent interviews upon our arrival, but after interviewing her first we canceled the other agent’s interview. The home required several home repairs and we needed an agent who manages numerous contractors while we all resided in different states. She hired all the contractors and managed them throughout the entire remodel/selling process. This required numerous trips to verify work progress, some trips were even made on Sunday on a couple of occasions. Kathryn had to make all decisions from appliance types, carpets, paint colors and which repairs that were necessary to perform, all with our approval and even bringing the overall project in under budget. Kathryn was very responsive and managed all of these transactions as if the home was her own. A true professional on every level, Kathryn and her team was there for our every need. Her eyes on the ground made all of our decision making process simple an swift. When any offer was presented she always had our best family interest at hand, she never pressed for a sale and remained neutral but well in tune of where the market values were at all times. Kathryn’s experience with the local real estate market is nothing less than superb. For a great real estate experience Kathryn should be your choice when you need to either buy or sell a home on the Emerald Coast of NC. Thanks Kathryn for a “Job Well Done” and keeping our difficult situation painless on all levels.”

“Kathryn was just what we needed! She took us from not really sure what we wanted to finding the perfect home for us to retire in! She could be objective yet encouraging when we were all over the place. After a very short time she was able to just pull the ones she knew we would be interested in and drop the others. Not only would I recommend her, I HAVE recommended her and those home hunters completely agree with my assessment!”

“Kathryn did an awesome job of keeping us on track in the buying process. She was also a great help in finding folks we need to get things done i.e. home inspector… We got what we were looking for right where we want to be. Buying a place from a distance can be a hassle but everything went smooth. Very pleased!”
David & Kim Madaras

Buyer Client, November 2015

“Kathryn was great! We were living in Maryland and I had been wanting to move to NC for many years, my husband was not so sure. I found Kathryn and sent her an email explaining what we wanted. She started sending listings, it took over 3 years but she was there and never gave up on us. We finally found a house and the time was right to buy. She always got back to me quickly and answered all my questions. She gave us her “Island Girls Home Buying Guide” and with us coming from out of state it made things so much easier when needing to call local companies. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone who was thinking of buying a home.”
Robert & Shelly Gorman

Buyer Client, October 2015

“I worked with Brandie Morton with buying a new home. I was buying from across the country so she found hundreds of houses for me to look at online, and we narrowed it down and she took me to see about 30 houses over a weekend. She was patient with me as a first time home buyer and answered all my questions. She was an invaluable resource throughout and even after the closing, assisting me with the house as I am still on the other side of the county. She made the home buying experience a pleasant and fun one, relieved all my stress, assisted with all the problems that arose, and got me my dream home. I could not have asked for a better Realtor.”
Mark Schmidt

Buyer Client, October 2015

“Kathryn was absolutely fantastic. Two areas stand out: 1)knowledge and experience 2) attention to detail/follow thru.1. Knowledge and experience. Kathryn shepherded us through every pitfall and opportunity we encountered. Examples: – Helped us understand and navigate flood insurance requirements. – Helped us understand real world rental potential and expense overhead. – Helped us navigate the “condo review” process and provide the right level of detail to make the lender “happy”. – Had referrals for experts in tricky areas such as septic and structural evaluations (beyond the normal property inspection.)
2. Attention to detail/follow thru. Kathryn was on top of everything and communicated well by email, text message and telephone. When there were issues between the lender and the closing attorney, she helped us stay on target by leveraging her personal relationships with the closing attorney and the appraiser. I am certain we would not have been able to close on schedule without her intervention.
How committed was she? even though she was traveling out of the country, I still got emails and text messages from her every day. Wow, that’s follow thru!”
Rusty & Carol Parks

“In preparation for selling our home, we interviewed several realtors. After meeting Kathryn, we decided that her experience coupled with how at ease we felt around her made it an easy decision. We signed on with her several months before actually listing the house, using her suggestions to get the house ready for listing. She provided very wise and economical advice for updates and polishes on the house. We signed up for her premium service which provided all sorts of extras that really ensured that our home was ready to list! Upon listing with her, we had tons of activity that first day and an excellent contract within 3 days. We had no idea that the home would sell that quickly, but know that Kathryn’s wise guidance at preparing the home was the reason for the quick sale. Her negotiation skills were tested with this contract and she did a wonderful job, always making sure that our interests were accounted for in the process. We highly recommend Kathryn and her team, along with her premium service, if you want a smooth home sell! You cannot go wrong with Kathryn!”
Jeff Brann

Seller Client, January 2015

“We had the best home buying experience you can ask for especially since we were out of state. Brandie did an amazing job and was so helpful. Everything went very smoothly. We needed to do our home search in one weekend and Brandie took us to all the homes on our list and then some. She helped us find our dream home! Thank you so much!”

“Kathryn helped us find a beach home in Emerald Isle, NC. She provided top notch services, spending her weekends showing us properties and providing insightful specifications for each property to consider in the selection process. She was very knowledgeable in the purchase process from start to finish, guiding us through the purchase offer, negotiations for repairs and a home warranty. Kathryn was able to answer all of our questions or obtain answers from the sellers in a very timely manner and was quick to respond to all phone calls and emails. She kept us informed throughout and stayed on top of the process to make sure inspections and the loan process were completed in a timely manner to meet the due diligence and closing deadlines. It was a great buying experience! We highly recommend Kathryn.”
Vernon & Crystal Cox

Buyer Client, September 2013

“Kathryn thought of everything that might help with the sale of my lot from day one. She found an expired septic permit for me, and explained the ins and outs of seller financing–which is what enabled me to sell.When a contract had been signed, she kept me informed minute by minute about what was happening, and what I would need to do to conclude my end of the sale from 1000 miles away.I’ve done real estate deals in 5 other states in the course of my life, and none has gone anywhere near as smoothly as this one with Kathryn Gorham.”
Judith Wilson

Seller Client, September 2013

“Kathryn’s professional services were exceptional. We signed up for her premier services and it was well worth it.

I would recommend her highly”

She treated us like family and made us feel as if we were the only people she was working for – we were that important to her! She was always available by either phone or email, and kept us constantly updated so that we never felt we were being left out of the loop.

Don’t make a mistake and choose any other realtor; you cannot go wrong with Kathryn on your side!”
Brice & Catrina Thomas

Kathryn Gorham with Sun Surf Realty was by far the most honest, hardworking, dedicated realtor that I have worked with. She is truly in a different league of realtors in our area. She is timely, responsive, and always available for any questions I had or advice if it was needed. I would highly recommend Kathryn as a buyers or sellers agent. “

Tom Lambeth

Buyer Client

“I can’t begin to tell you how much last Saturday meant to me. It made me feel that I had really found another place to call home. It truly is a neighborhood that made me feel welcome and I know how very much everyone appreciated all that you did for us. I think the news spread all over the whole neighborhood. I went to church on Sunday with Jane, the last guest that came. She immediately related to the first person she introduced me to – all about the lovely open house (house warming) that you did for me. Yesterday when I went to the mailbox, I ran into Toni and she said if she ever needed a realtor she knew who she would call on. She thought it was such a lovely thing to do and had never been done before in the neighborhood. Tell your caterer what a lovely luncheon she prepared and so efficient with everything included. Please stop by and see me anytime you find the time. You have indeed been a real friend in this difficult time of my transition to a new environment.”
