We wanted to express how very pleased we were with your skills and professionalism in real estate. You did a fantastic job for us and deeply appreciate it. You are an asset to the profession and we will highly recommend you.
Stephanie and Jim

Tedi is absolutely amazing! I recently moved from another state, it had been 13 years since I bought a house, and I was essentially clueless. What I did know was that I had found the house where I could see my kids baking cookies, playing with a puppy in the yard, squabbling over whose turn it was to do which chores. I was home. However, I hadn't picked an easy home to buy. Through the entire process, Tedi was the person I knew I could depend on. She was easily accessible, knowledgeable, and thorough. She was an advocate and an encouragement. I knew I could count on her to be honest, straight forward, and show common sense. I watched the appraiser, contractors, and lender show her the same respect and trust that I had, which shows a pattern of professional and personal integrity. Tedi went above and beyond what her job required countless times. I would not be home without her.

Hi Tedi. Just wanted to send a note to say thank you for everything you did to help us sell our home quickly. From the start, you were upfront and honest on what it would take to get it sold. You put a lot of time and effort into making sure it was advertised very professionally which was evidenced by the number of showings and hits on the website. Throughout the entire process you remained professional and honest. I would highly recommend you to anyone and if the need ever arises again whether it be buying or selling, You would be who I would call upon. You always had our best interest in mind and truly cared. Thank you.
Barb and Dennis

I have used Tedi to sell two houses that I previously owned. I have to say she is one of the most diligent, honest, hard-working people I know. She really understands the ins and outs of real estate and how to negotiate with buyers. Tedi was able to get us offers on both houses in under 30 days. I recommended Tedi to my mother when it was time to sell my Grandmother's house and she sold it as well. I would highly recommend Tedi whether you are trying to sell or looking for the right home to buy. You won't be disappointed. Jim Williams.

I can personally attest to the outstanding service and professionalism that Tedi's clients receive. My husband and I moved to NC from NY in the beginning of this year. I found Tedi after researching realtors in Pittsboro. Her successful years of experience and love for animals were the initial reasons I selected to engage Tedi as our buyer's agent. Once we began working together Tedi soon displayed numerous other characteristics such as a strong work ethic, uncompromising integrity and perseverance that put our minds at ease knowing we found the best realtor for our family. We are thrilled to be in a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood and we owe it all to Tedi Vail.

Hi Tedi,
I just wanted to thank you again for all your help and expertise in purchasing Greystone. You were so easy to work with and very down to earth. Made everything uncomplicated for us.
Thank you.
Grace and Peter Fasolino

If you need to sell your house, Tedi is the agent for you. Tedi will advise you in prepping your house for sale by evaluating your house on a room to room basis, de cluttering and staging your house for sale. She has extensive knowledge regarding the local real estate market values. Her analysis of our home value resulted in our getting a great price for our home and selling it in a day. She will keep you well informed throughout the entire home selling or buying process.

If we were in the market to buy another house in the area, we would not hesitate to use Tedi again.

Jill and Rusty

Thanks so much for all of your help and support. We would not have been able to get thru the sale of our house without you.
Debbie and John

When we first learned that we were going to have to sell our condo in Pittsboro so soon after having purchased it, we had a few gloomy moments. The only positive thought we had at that time was, of course that we could depend on you to sell it.
Being at great distance, we had to depend on you to handle a host of issues that arose. And you came thru for us...in spades! In addition to negotiating the sale, you had to arrange for carpet cleaning, personally change blown out light bulbs and clean the mess that was left by one perspective buyer. Our estimation, you certainly went above and beyond anything that would ordinarily be required of a Real Estate Agent.
You have tremendous energy and a strong work ethic. You made the entire process extremely easy for us and, for that, we will be eternally grateful.
Sincerely, Ginny and Mike Brown

Mike and I just want to thank you for helping us with our home. You always had our best interests at heart and we appreciate you for that. This was our first home buying experience and without you, we would have been lost. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. We appreciate your kindness and quick response time every step of the way. Thank you so much!

Beth and Mike McMillan

"We sold and purchased a house with Tedi. She was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. Tedi's experience was obvious in dealing with sellers and possible buyers. She is very professional and easy to work with. If we were to make any further real estate deals she will get our first call."
Lori and Derek

I closed on my home, yesterday, 10/16/14. I couldn't be more pleased with the whole process. With Tedi's knowledge and expertise I was able to pick up a beautiful home that was undervalued and a gem waiting for polishing. She was able to win an $1800 concession I was not expecting during the inspection period. She's warm and personable while also being firm and strategically-minded. Communication was easy and she was ahead of any issues that arise by nature in a complex process like this. I really enjoyed working with Tedi and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

My wife and I selected Tedi Vail as our agent based on many recommendations from friends in the community. Tedi provided very appropriate / accurate guidance at every step of the selling process. Tedi always responded to our questions and follow-ups immediately. Every one of her recommendations for HVAC, Electricians, Septic and other home repair services were on time and very professional. Not only is Tedi a true real estate expert and business professional, she is also a kind and caring person who takes care of business and gets the job done. We have relocated 4 times in the last 20 years and Tedi is the best agent we have ever had. My wife and I are very greatful for her assistance and offer our highest recommendation for her as a real estate agent.
Del and Diana

I had a wonderful experience working with Tedi Vail. I was attempting to sell a piece of land in NC while living in Georgia. She was always helpful and available. While we ran into some obstacles with the piece of property, Tedi never gave up on helping me work through the issues. I would use her again, and I recommend her without any reservation.

If you value professionalism, integrity, and attention to detail, Tedi Vail is the realtor for you.

Tedi worked with us for nearly four years to find the RIGHT house. I admit that our list of "must-haves" made this a challenging task, but Tedi stuck by us until we found the perfect place. She was endlessly patient, remarkably knowledgeable, and completely in our corner during a long short-sale process. Her tireless attitude made our search much more pleasant and we feel we have found a new friend!

We love our new home and land! Thank you, Tedi!

Tedi is wonderful! Not only is she knowledgeable and nice, but she is very attentive to details and followed up on everything. She sold us a house, and then promptly sold our old one. She remained calm and keep me calm during what can be a very stressful process. You will be lucky to get her to help in the purchase of your new house! Amy and Jonas

Hi Tedi,
Thank you for all your hard work and advise! You truly made our first house buying experience pleasant and easy! We will be recommending you to anybody in the market for houses! Thank you again!!!
Katie and Bryan

Hi Tedi,

I just want to send an extra thank you for all the time and energy you put into our purchase of 660 Graycliff. I thought you did a wonderful job throughout the entire adventure. I really appreciated your low key style and professionalism. You kept us on schedule and did all the proper follow-ups in a timely manner. We are also appreciative of the extra time you put in with Carl and Emmie while they took contractors through the house.

I can't imagine that anyone could do a better job than you did for us. Many thanks!


After interviewing several realtors, I decided to list my home with Tedi. My house was listed on MLS within 12 hours of signing the contract. The house was in escrow in a week due to her pricing strategy and negotiation skills. Tedi was available by phone or email every time I had a question. She explained the escrow process and guided me through it.

Tedi had been recommended to me by a friend who had used her as a listing agent and another friend who had bought her house from a family who had listed their house with Tedi.

If I were to use one phrase to describe Tedi it would be that she is a professional extraordinaire.

Tedi was wonderful in helping us with (2) very extensive moves in both selling, finding a rental and buying. These days it is difficult to find someone as competent as Tedi. You know your'e in good hands with Tedi.
JoAnn and Tom

Tedi is extremely knowledgeable about the local market. She is extremely professional and readily available for all questions that my fiancé and I had. The entire process was easy and painless and that is because Tedi is the best realtor you could ask for and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to move to North Carolina.
Alyssa and Keith

Tedi was an invaluable asset to our home buying process. She worked efficiently and effectively to help us find and secure our new home! She always advocated for our best interests while skillfully navigating the emotions and personalities involved in buying/selling a home.The next time we move (which we hope will be a very long time from now!) we will definitely use Tedi.

Mary and James Tiger

I can’t thank you enough for your help putting us into our new home. You were absolutely great to work with. You weren’t pushy and you really listened to what we wanted. You were very engaged throughout the entire process and helped us navigate through what typically is a stressful ordeal. I can honestly say that I didn’t lose a minute of sleep over anything during the time we were navigating through the transaction. As soon as an issue popped up you were already dealing with it. You’re awesome. Thank you so much!

Dear Tedi,

Thank you very much for your professional and attentive service to us as our realtor in the house sale we closed yesterday in Pittsboro.
You were very easy to deal with; always responsive and helpful, including many instances where we asked you to assist us with issues that are well beyond the scope of normal realtor duties. Since we were no longer were in the area you were extremely helpful in negotiating every issue that arose, from assisting with estimates for moving companies to meeting termite inspectors to insure they had access to the house. Your advice was invaluable as we prepared the house for showing and as we encountered potential buyers who had
questions and offers. We have sold several houses over the years but
have never encountered an agent who was so helpful and professional.
Our house sold in six months during a time when the market is depressed. Please don't hesitate to refer anyone to us who might want a reference about your performance.

Thanks again for everything.


Jim and Twila Floyd

Tedi is hands-down one of the greatest realtors out there--the best, in our opinion! Selling your home and buying a new one are absolute emotional rollercoaster events, but Tedi was there for us every step of the way and made us feel like we were her number one priority. She gave us great advice, was always available when we needed to talk or had a question, and was the most kind, caring, and compassionate person throughout it all. Her organization, attention to detail, thoroughness, and communication skills are unmatched. The lengths Tedi went to for us were astounding, and she became a close friend to our family. She is truly dedicated to her work, and she is amazing at what she does.

We certainly can't thank Tedi enough for helping us sell our home and buy our new one, which we are so happy in. Chatham Homes Realty is a top-notch company, and everyone there has been so nice to us--most notably Kris and Maureen. They all really know how to make you feel genuinely cared about and valued.

Robin & James Johnson

Dear Tedi,

I really have appreciated your professionalism and efficiency in my home buying transaction. Relocating from San Diego to Raleigh starts a new chapter in my life and I really needed a realtor that was going to help make the move go as smoothly as possible. You did just that! Your negotiating skills are top-notch and you always looked out for my best interest. You helped close my deal quickly and now I am settling into a beautiful home and community. Thank you again, Tedi, for your exemplary service! I will definitely be giving you referrals when I get the chance!
Sincerely, Judy Eglinton

Thank you so much for all the hard work you did to make my dream house come true. It is the perfect house for me and you made the whole buying process go so smoothly. Being a first time home owner I had no idea what to do yet, with every document that I had to sign, you made sure my interests were your top priority. Your professionalism and the kind and friendly way that you conduct your business made me feel that I was your most important customer. I feel so lucky to have had you as my agent and I will surely recommend you to my friends. Thanks so much for making my dream come true.
Phyllis Ake

Selling and buying a home is a very stressfull event in one's life, but Tedi made it stress free. She is professional, responsible, miticulous and accertive, always thinking of her client. Tedi made it happen for us even in today's real estate market. Thank you Tedi
Sincerely, Jerry and Carol Barlow

I am writing to complement Tedi Vail of Chatham Homes Realty on the outstanding service that we received from her when buying a house. We had initially started house hunting with an agent from a very large agency but found the ‘team’ approach cumbersome. I was shopping for real estate while living at our NC vacation home and my husband was still living in NJ. It was a very complicated ordeal but Tedi made it easy for us to find the perfect house. She was efficient and knowledgeable and worked incredibly hard on our behalf. We recommend Tedi to others at every opportunity.

Sincerely, Olivia & Bill Bergner

Hi Tedi,
It was really good working with you selling our old house and buying our
new one. Chris and I really appreciated your honesty and knowledge of the
whole buying and selling process. This really helped prevent any surprises.
Your attention to details and quick response times were critical to getting everything signed accurately and quickly so we could meet our short closing
dates. We also liked that you went above and beyond your duties like helping
us store our outdoors lawn equipment. We also appreciated the great
recommendations for mortgage services and local contractors.

Working with you made the whole buying and selling process less stressful,
and it really helped that you are such a nice person to work with. Chris and I
would highly recommend you to our friends and family and would be glad to
provide any recommendations for your future clients.

Thanks again,
Eric and Chris Stonehouse

Dear Tedi,

Thank you for smoothing the way for our retirement move from New York to North Carolina. You steered us to the right house and then ensured that all of the many choices and selections necessary for the completion of a new house worked for us. You were our local eyes and ears. Your honesty, expertise, attention to detail, quick response to our questions and concerns, and regular updates with photos made us feel comfortable and in the know. Your friendly demeanor and empathy with our selling situation in New York made a stressful period much less worrisome for us.

We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and work with you and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

We wish you well in the future.

Best regards,
Patty and Peter Walters

My husband and I would like to thank Chatham Homes Realty, especially our agent Tedi Vail for doing a fantastic job in listing and selling our home. Tedi is extremely hard working and her personal attention to her clients is exceptional. Tedi's personal involvement proved her dedication to us as clients as well as to her job as a realtor. We appreciate all your hard work and look forward to working with you in the future.
Nick and Petra Beaulieu

Dear Tedi,
It is a blessing to me and Klaus to know you. We are very, very grateful for everything you have done for us to help realize our dream.

Gabriele and Klaus Dech - Munich, Germany

We want to take this time to thank you for all your hard work while selling our home. Your knowledge and friendly manner helped make the selling process stress free and enjoyable. You took the time to make sure we were comfortable with every step of selling our home. We appreciated the ease in which we could contact you at any time. Your professionalism and guidance were greatly appreciated. I will highly recommend you to others for buying or selling a home.

Beth and Dale Beebe

I couldn't have asked for any better. Thanks for being so awesome before, during and after this whole process. You truly have been great to work with.

Stacey Jacques

Thank you for going above and beyond in helping us buy this dream property. We will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone.
