Our Testimonials

Kelly Dean is knowledgeable, professional, diligent and always one step ahead with communication. Kelly saw us through from searching for the right home to closing, making the entire process of relocating an easy transition. If I ever have sell or buy again, I would go to no one else but Kelly at Buy the Beach Realty.

"We actually lucked into Kelly via a flyer in front of a house in Kill Devil Hills that was for sale a couple of years ago. We contacted her last fall when we were ready to look at beach houses. She immediately responded and I don't see how our experience could have been better. She provided many showings of houses that fit our criteria, answered every question quickly and accurately, and led us seamlessly through the buying and negotiation process. She provided us with many contacts for services after we bought the house and has also helped us dispose of some items in the house that we didn't want. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house in OBX. Scott Schoedler"

"Our experience in buying a vacation home in the Outer Banks was smooth and painless. This is because of the wonderful realtor Kelly Dean. She was knowledgeable of the area. She listened to what we wanted in a vacation home and found homes that met those requests. Once we found the home we wanted, she proved to be a true Buyers Agent, representing on our behalf. She thought of every detail that we would need to address and made sure it was done in a timely manner. We have bought and sold many homes and she by far has been the best Realtor we have ever had. We recommend KellyDean to anyone needing realtor service!"

" 5/5 We loved working with Kelly. She was never pushy or put pressure on us to hurry and settle on a house. Since this was a second home for us on the Outer Banks, Kelly was always available to spend her weekends visiting any newly listed houses that interested us. She was diligent in following thru on everything dealing with the sellers, the loan and the closing. She also offered her opinion and expert advice whenever we needed it which I found very useful. In my opinion she made the whole buying experience perfect for us."


Kelly Dean is the most complete agent you could ever want. Her professionalism, character, and caring personality is second to none. Not to mention her knowledge in every aspect of the process. My Husband and I have bought 2 houses and sold one with Kelly. What could have been a painful experience was nothing but awesome because of all Kelly does. She leaves nothing uncovered from start to way beyond the finish. Kelly Dean you are the BEST!!!!

KELLY DEAN 5/5 I recommend Kelly Dean for anyone needing a realtor in the outer banks area. Kelly is responsive and works hard to meet the needs of her clients.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kelly Dean this summer. Our initial plans were to locate an area that we wanted to look for houses in to retire in a few years. Kelly is warm, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and always puts your interests first. We saw a house on line the day before we were leaving the OBX after our vacation and contacted Kelly to see if she could show it to us. She immediately responded and said to come on up and she would take us over there even though she was scheduled to go out of town. We were so appreciative of her making time for us. That was certainly going above and beyond. As it turns out , this house was perfect for us and we put an offer in an hour later. By 5 pm we were under contract and as of last Thursday- this beautiful home is officially ours. We could not have done this without all of her help and support. It is challenging to do a closing when you live 1400 miles from the new home . Kelly was there every step of the way, always responding to our questions or concerns immediately no matter what time of day. It was such an amazing experience- and because of Kelly we now own our dream retirement home. She is the best real estate agent you could ever have.

-Laurie C.

Kelly was an ideal real estate agent, representing us as out of town buyers. She listened to our requirements, showed us houses that met our wants and didn't blink an eye when we requested to see ho uses outside of our original specifications. She went out of her way to meet us despite our last minute requests, was upfront about the pros and cons of each house, and provided invaluable information about local building codes, different communities and answered every question we posed. Kelly smoothly moved along the closing process by staying in contact with all the parties involved. She dotted her i's and crossed her t's. We love the house we ultimately bought and would recommend Kelly to anyone buying or selling in the Outer Banks.

My experience of buying a home through Buy the Beach Realty, Kelly Dean, my Real Estate Professional was more than I expected. Kelly was very professional, helpful, courteous and went out of her way to ensure my buying a home in NC was a positive experience. My home in VA sold in 9 days, thus I had to find a house as fast as possible. Kelly understood the type of home I would enjoy, and after showing me several homes, she found the house I purchased. Working with my agent in VA, the team of professionals in NC, Kelly was able to walk me through the entire process successfully. The closing on my VA home was delayed, thus delaying the closing on my home in NC. Kelly worked long hours, was always available when I needed to ask questions, had concerns, or just needed assurance that all was going to work out!! I would definitely recommend Buy the Beach Realty, and Kelly Dean. Kelly made the experience of relocating to a different State, purchasing a home, informing me of what was required, & coordinating with all the professionals, both in VA and NC, Kelly was always professional and encouraging. Thank you, Kelly Dean. The best Real Estate Professional ever! You made it happen!!!

Summary of their experience:
We had a wonderful experience working with Kelly! We looked at numerous houses before deciding to buy this house and she was very knowledgeable and gathered lots of information on each house that we viewed. We started this journey with very little knowledge of exactly what we were searching for and she helped us find the perfect house! We highly recommend Buy the Beach Realty! We are so thankful that our paths crossed with Kelly and we are so excited about our beach house! Thanks so much for all of your help!

Summary of their experience
I could not be more pleased with "Buy the Beach Realty" and Kelly Dean. Kelly and "Buy the Beach" walked me through the entire process of buying my first home. They were quick to respond and hones there showings to what meet our needs. I don't think there was a question they could not answer, and I had a lot. If they didn't know something they sought out the answer. The helped with local resources of services, and utilities, helped keep the process on schedule and was a reassuring ear when things seemed to pile-up. They also kept the focus of the buying process on myself the buyer, and not the seller. Gave advise on making offers and requests to make modifications during the "due diligence process". We are please with the services of Kelly Dean and "Buy the Beach Realty" and will easily recommend them to anyone!
