Heather McLay was our Realtor when we purchased our cottage in Duck almost 2 years ago. We searched for 1 1/2 years, looking at properties from Corolla to Nags Head. Heather was very knowledgeable about all of the different areas, was very professional, patient and fun to be around. She also responded to voice mails and e-mails very quickly. If you are looking to purchase property on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I highly recommend Heather.
Helen S. - Waynesboro, VA
Heather was absolutely wonderful to work with. She quickly (at all times of the day/night) and efficiently answered all of our questions and provided valuable input. She was patient in her willingness to show us several homes and listened to our requests about the type of home/cost/area etc. She did not push us to buy something that would not suit our needs or wants. She was insightful and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. I would HIGHLY recommend Heather to anyone that is interested in real estate in the Outer Banks!
Steve Z. - Midlothian, VA
Heather is extremely knowledgeable of the Outer Banks Real Estate market. She is always prompt and responsive to requests or contract issues. We could not have asked for a better person to help in the process.
Ellen B. - Banner Elk, NC
You have not missed a beat as you marketed our home; thorough, perceiving and accomplished.
Alan S. - Barnegat, NJ

Joel C. - Chesapeake, VA
Heather is outstanding. I used her to purchase a house in Corolla about 4 years ago. This is the 3rd house I have purchased and she is by far the best agent I have ever used. She is on top of everything all thru the whole buying process. Phone calls, text and email are all answered almost within minutes, never did I have to follow up. Even several years after my purchase, I have asked her for advice and she never fails to provide excellent info. She won’t forget about you after the sale. Heather is amazing, I would never use anyone else and would recommend her to everyone.
Jean S. - McLean, VA
Before listing we interviewed several agents and our initial instinct that Heather would be the right agent proved to be correct. Heather was responsive, insightful and upbeat all the way through from the listing process to the closing. We were an unusual case in that our house was a multiple owner one. She was extremely patient with the many questions and occasional misunderstandings. We had the perfect buyer and a very happy ending. I would not hesitate to recommend Heather!
Nora F. - Duck, NC
I bought a house in the Outer Banks through Heather McLay. She is an experienced, knowledgeable realtor. She was very patient, kind and friendly while showing me several houses. When I finally decided on one, she made the transaction easy and smooth. She is detail oriented and I never felt rushed or pressured. I would definitely recommend Heather to anyone looking for the perfect realtor!
Doris W. - Mitchellville, MD
We were able to sell our 2nd home within our time frame with Heather’s expert assistance. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about selling a house in her area.
Pat P. - Woodbridge, VA
Heather has been my “go to” broker on the Outer Banks for more than 7 years. I just completed my third purchase with her expert help and guidance and as always she made it easy and fun. She is very knowledgeable of the local area and trends, knows how to navigate the process and solve problems, and is a joy to work with. I recommend her to all my friends and look forward to working with her on our next acquisition.
Nancy P. - Duck, NC
I have worked with Heather for over 4 years now, trying to make a decision on a location/ house/ property purchase, and I cannot over exaggerate how understanding, patient and knowledgeable she is. This was a complicated decision involving a coast to coast move, and one we hoped would be permanent. Heather stuck with me pouring over choices, including existing houses and then land choices if we decided to build. Heather did not give up. She understood that this was a challenging decision and she did her best to provide all information needed, without being pushy or short with us. She is an upbeat person, with a fresh positive attitude… And most importantly, she can be trusted.
Rebecca C. - Virginia Beach, VA
Heather provided the most outstanding service during the purchase of my property in Kill Devil Hills. Her friendly demeanor and professionalism is evident from the first meeting and follows her wherever she goes. She is thorough, thoughtful, excellent at negotiating, and cares about your real estate investment. I could go on and on about how great of a realtor Heather is, but you really have to meet her for yourself. I would recommend her to any and everyone.
Jessica K. - Great Falls, VA
Heather is reliable, responsive, knowledgeable and super fun. She helped us sell a beach home in Duck in record time (less than 30 days) and she helped us find another beach home at a terrific price. She made both closings painless. And the best news, she has continued to work with us after the deals have closed, by happily providing advice, tips and countless referrals. I highly recommend working with Heather to buy or sell your next beach home! She is fantastic!
Elizabeth G. - Cary, NC
Heather hung with us for multiple years while we were waiting for the right time to sell our property. She kept us informed with quarterly sales reports, news of the OBX and general info and opinions. When we decided to finally sell, Heather was very honest with the market conditions and the expected offers we may receive. She indicated she wanted to get our property sold by the end of the year, and she did. The process was streamlined, efficient and Heather and team delivered on all promises in a professional, friendly considerate manner.
Diana S. - Warrenton, VA
Heather is awesome to work with! Our family has used her extensively on the Outer Banks for years. She is very knowledgeable and works with you in anyway needed. I would highly recommend her for your next purchase or sale!!!! You ask and she does. She worked hard for me when I purchased my OBX Home in 2016. You can't go wrong with her at all!!!!!
E.W.A. - Portsmouth, VA
Heather is a real pleasure to work with in the buying and/or selling of your property. She is "on the ball", responsive and reliable. She will listen and look for the property you are looking for to meet your needs. You cannot go wrong with Heather working with you!
Joe M. - Crozet, VA
You will not find a more knowledgeable realtor on the Outer Banks. Heather works very hard and stays connected to all the investment opportunities in this market. I knew nothing about buying a beach house. She helped me develop criteria--like positive cash flow and location--found multiple options, helped negotiate a great deal and lined up financing options. After the purchase she organized a rental agent and helped locate multiple service providers (insurance, maintenance, pool cleaning, etc). Heather knew the market so well that she knew exactly what decorating and upgrades would significantly increase my rental stream. Due to her capability and diligence, I had positive cash flow from year one and have enjoyed a beautiful oceanfront rental machine for ten years. I am looking for my next investment with her and have no idea why a buyer would use anyone other than Heather to buy in the Outer Banks.
Diana S.W.
I have bought and sold properties with Heather on the OBX. Her knowledge of the area and market trends is exceptional. She is professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with. We will be looking for another property soon and she's our agent for life!!!!
