Jason focuses primarily on investment property from Duck to the Virginia line with an expertise in the 4wd area of Carova Beach. "While the complexity of investing in the 4WD can be overwhelming to those unfamiliar to the area, I have studied and researched the intricacies of this unique and remote area to enable my clients to achieve the comfort level necessary to make informed financial decisions while realizing their dreams of ownership at the beach."
Jason is the Broker-in-Charge of the 4WD Sales Office located 8 miles up the beach from the paved road in the restored Wash Woods Coast Guard Station. You can reach Jason by email or visit his 4wd real estate blog.
Having vacationed in the area for many years, we looked forward to staking our claim to a piece of property on the four wheel beaches of Corolla. From the initial tour of lots to the purchase of our vacation home, we were consistently impressed with the knowledge, dedication and thoroughness of our sales broker, Jason Summerton.
Without Jason’s assistance, I don’t believe we would have been able to make our dream of owning a vacation home possible this soon. His patience, diligence and determination kept the deal going when most other agents would have given up and moved on. He did not take our dream lightly. We value not only Jason’s expertise and professionalism as a real estate sales broker, but also the friendship forged throughout the process.
Jason Summerton has been my realtor guru since 2005. I am currently the owner of (1) house and (4) house lots in the off-road section of Corolla, NC. Jason has guided me every step of the way through the process of purchasing the properties in the northern OBX area. He has always gone above and beyond my expectations when it comes to knowledge of the area, and the real estate properties he has advised me on. Over the last four years, my experience with Twiddy Sales and Jason have been exceptional. Not only is Jason my go to guy for everything OBX, I have come to consider him a close personal friend.

The Twiddy name was one picked at random by my wife and I. Like many beach visitors, we always held a dream of one day owning "a place at the shore." Little did we know at that time that our dream was about to come true.
We met our Twiddy agent and spoke at length of our interest and "the dream." We immediately recognized someone who cared about us as individuals as not just new clients. We heard wisdom, sound advice and received an education on what it really meant to own beach property.
Over the course of the next two weeks we traveled far and wide in and around the hard surface and four-wheel drive areas. We were given an opportunity to make-up our own minds and draw our own conclusion as to what best met our needs. The most important element of this process was that we were never pressured into to making a decision. The truth be known, we could have made some errors but our agent guided us into keeping our focus on our dream and maintaining the realities of our life.
Our agent quickly became a person we knew we could trust. Our agent was someone who we recognized was more concerned that we had a positive experience with Twiddy, and that he maintained a highly level of credibility rather than viewing us as an opportunity for making a sale. To this day, our agent is a true and trusted friend who has, during countless times, advised us, supported us, and made connections for us with a wide variety of experts to address our needs.
Our dream is now a reality. For the past three years we have enjoyed our new home, on the site which best suited our needs. This all came about from the efforts made by our friend. The relationship we have has no price tag - it's priceless! Maybe the company slogan should be "Live your Dream!" because our Twiddy agent made this all possible.
In the late summer of 2008, I was an unannounced walk-in to the Twiddy Sales Office in Corolla where I was introduced to Mr. Jason Summerton. Jason immediately dropped everything he was doing to spend time with me answering my questions and educating me about the market. I instantly felt comfortable with Jason and at no time was there pressure from him or any implied obligation in exchange for his time. We had a lengthy discussion and then spent the better part of 4 hours touring the Corolla neighborhoods. Jason painted a vivid picture of what life was like in the area and made me feel at home. The next day we continued the tour in 4WD and he was patient and accommodating despite my slow dissension on the “learning curve”. In the weeks that followed Jason was supportive of my search to find the exact site I was looking for, he had insights about the target area and specific lots that I am certain saved me tens if not hundreds of thousand of dollars in the negotiation. Jason was instrumental in helping us find the right builder and guided us through the permitting and environmental red tape clarifying and validating our purchase. Had Jason not been there the way he was for us, I am certain we would not have found our lots nor closed the transaction. Jason is clearly passionate about customers service, has incomparable knowledge of his markets and sharp business acumen. Most importantly to me, Jason is a genuinely nice guy who is fun to work with.
I eagerly and without hesitation recommend Jason and his organization for your Outer Banks real estate needs. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me as I am happy to have my name (and number) associated with Jason and with Twiddy!
Our experience with Twiddy Sales was nothing short of excellent. Our Twiddy representative was knowledgeable, courteous and really went to bat for us when it counted. I couldn't recommend Twiddy more highly.
I contacted Twiddy once I believed my wife and I could finally afford a second home in the Outer Banks.
We had vacationed with Twiddy for 15 years; Always with confidence and always a pleasurable experience.
Jason Summerton of Twiddy sales, took the time to show my wife and I properties and to develop a true sense of what we were looking for: even, when it became evident that we weren’t sure ourselves. We immediately felt comfortable. In short order, over the course of a week end, we were no longer looking at houses but at lots. Being from ‘the north” our trust in Jason facilitated the offer, acceptance, and purchase of a lot in Swan Beach, without ever leaving New Jersey. A few emails, a few wire transfers, and we were property owners. That is where the relationship with a buyer’s agent usually ends. Jason however; recommended a builder, assisted in building our relationship with a local bank and within months we had a vacation home, again without incidence; and again, without having to travel.
Jason, Brian Brumfield construction, and Drew Wright with Bank of America treated us like family. I have heard horror stories from people who have built homes in their own town. I am a builder and an environmental contractor. I have seen this and I know it is hard to find people you can trust in real estate and in construction. I was lucky enough to build from N.J. in North Carolina without a hitch thanks to Twiddy and Jason.
I can not emphasize enough the honesty Jason exhibits and the trust I have in him and in Twiddy. I am eight hours away…. Jason has a key to my house. I attempted to buy a restaurant recently in Corolla... I went to Jason. He immediately said to me “I am not a commercial agent let me put you in touch with someone…” I replied ‘I’ll take my chances I’d rather deal with someone I trust”. I truly believe Jason puts the needs and desires of his clients before all else. We have since become good friends and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Twiddy and Co. to my family and friends.

With the current challenges in the OBX real estate market, we knew that utilizing the right realtor would make all the difference in buying or selling our investment. We received Jason's name from a friend who had bought and sold multiple properties with Jason. Jason's experience and knowledge helped guide us through the selling process and changed a normally cumbersome task into a seamless process. His knowledge made selling our home easy. His suggestions/advice on price, necessary improvements, and negotiations from buyers' offers resulted in the sale of our home is less than 6 months. He is also highly organized and well-connected in the markets so it made the process streamlined- even with us living in another state. We would highly recommend Jason for your buying or selling needs and would use his services again.
One of the things that attracted us to the 4wd area of the Outer Banks was the remoteness. When it came time to sell our house, it was this same remoteness that made selling a very unique process. No one understands the area better than Jason Summerton and no one can identify the right buyer and close a deal better. Our entire transaction was done remotely and having an agent that you know was going to bat for you every step of the way and who was in constant and clear communication made it all seamless.
My wife and myself for several years felt we would never afford property on the outer banks. With the recent
slow down in the economy we thought it would be a good time to do some window shopping "it does not cost to look".
While driving around in Carova, I bumped into Jason Summerton from Twiddy Realty and explained our situation. We live off a honest but average income. Jason took down our information, Quite frankly, I never expected to hear from him again. A short time later he called me with something in our price range. There was no high pressure to make an offer or to sign an agreement.
I was a bit nervous when we visited there office in Corolla to discuss the contract. The office is quite impressive and the property we wanted was frugal. I was impressed and flattered that every member of the staff treated us with that casual southern charm that gets lost in some big businesses.
When we got home the contracts were sent to us by email and we completed the transaction in the comfort of our home. We still cannot believe we own affordable property on the exclusive Outer Banks.
