Below are some testimonials given to us by our loyal and loving customers. We thank everyone listed below for the kind words and we really appreciate having you as customers!


Thank you, for showing me so many homes and persuading me to buy such a beautiful home in Beacon Ridge/Seven Lakes West. I can’t believe it’s been just over a month since I moved into my new home. I absolutely love the stunning water views of Lake Auman! It has been such a delight that many of my wonderful new neighbors have stopped by to welcome me to Beacon Ridge, some of whom shared friendship bread and delicious homemade sweet goods.

It can’t be left unsaid that you were more than instrumental in obtaining last-minute inspections, a surveyor, and a closing attorney for our “unheard of”nine-day marathon race from contract to closing. I also truly appreciate the kindness and friendship that you and your husband have extended to me; not to mention the fact that you both came over a few days after closing to offer your chainsaw and labor to take a few small trees down. The lovely lunch you brought was fabulous as well, especially to a person who had been busily trying to put a dent in unpacking the huge amount of moving boxes that were towering us everywhere.

I could not have chosen a better real estate broker. I truly appreciate all that you have done for me and most especially the laughter and good times we have shared. I look forward to our continuing friendship.


Thanks for being more than just a real estate agent. You have become a family friend!!!

I want to thank you so much for your excellent service in locating a piece of property that seems so right.

 This is just a short note to thank you for all your time and assistance in helping us find “just the right home” for our needs.

You gave us an overview of many areas and many homes – enough to help us make a good decision and one which we are very happy.

Thanks again for everything.

Bertie and Katharina

Many thanks for your help and hospitality during our recent trip. We enjoyed meeting everyone during our visit to your wonderful area! Ellen is an outstanding ambassador, both for McDevitt & Southern Pines. All in all, our time in your hands was very productive! We look forward to our move sometime soon!

You ushered us into our CCNC home and gracefully exited us out of it, and you will be remembered dearly as a part of our wonderful experience there.


New to the area, I called this office and spoke to DONNA who helped me with true professionalism. She genuinely made me feel comfortable while informing me how McDevitt Town & Country could be of help. I stopped by the beautiful downtown office and she continued with sharing her knowledge of Southern Pines and Moore County! I only hope that others I meet here are as Awesome as she!


Having been in the military, we moved and bought houses many times and all over the country. Inge Dahl is by far the best, most professional real estate agent we’ve ever worked with. We have been impressed with her willingness to take the time to do her homework, leaving nothing to chance.

On every occasion, she develops a list of homes, conducts previews and interviews, knows directions so we don’t get lost and waste time, has listings and details at her fingertips, and most importantly, ensures that the homes are ones that we will like to see. We will happily recommend her to everyone!

Bill & Bonnie, Montgomery, AL

Moving from out of state, with limited time and information, we quickly learned that we could rely on you to guide us in the process. You paid attention to our needs and requirements, made efficient use of our time and kept us focused on the end result.

The grid you provided us comparing the data on our top choices was invaluable in the selection process and acceptance of our purchase offer. Then you coordinated all the details for our closing while we went back to prepare for moving, and we closed in record time.

As two bankers with extensive experience in financing, we felt extremely fortunate to meet, and work with, someone with your organizational skills, professionalism, and ethics.

We highly recommend you to everyone we talk to about our move.



We would like to thank you again for the hospitality of AnnBeth Simmons We have never met a more gracious and helpful real estate agent. We are very hopeful in finding a property in the 7 lakes area with AnnBeth.

We will be in touch.

Thanks again.

John and Sheri


We wanted to take a moment and thank both of you for your help and patience in getting us into this house. We would never have looked at a townhouse if you guys hadn’t pointed this one out to us….and it’s spectacular. We have a great view of the wide part of the lake without having to look at the causeway or beach club…..the view is better than the Canal Lane house…it feels like you are overhanging the water…..just beautiful. We had a very hard time going home which is highly unusual for us. We thought about “just chucking everything in Baltimore” and staying here. Three years and counting.

Hunter was wonderful to work with. Barry Coyle also installed our water heater (if you see him let him know the check is in the mail)……….everything is working fine and Barry was kind enough to follow-up the following day to make sure we had hot water…….people are so nice.

So, all in all, life is beautiful!!!

Also, we wanted to thank you for the gift bag, and the membership letters……..we loved the cookbook, the keychains are in use……..and a good friend of ours has already claimed the golf balls.

Art and Pat


Can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for our family – helping us find our home in Pinehurst, introducing us to the Sandhills Sandsharks swim team, and inviting us to your home every Thanksgiving. We will be forever grateful to you.



Thanks bunches for the HT card. Got the biggest kick out of that and thanks for all the help on our new place!!

All our best,

Ann & Mark


Gary and I could like to express our gratitude for all of your time and effort helping us to find our home. You always made a special effort to be available when we came into town and later showing us the newest listings with short notice. And, you were always there to give us support and encouragement. We also want to thank you for the house warming gifts of course the margarita mix was the first to go, with a toast to you for sure. The Moore County book sets proudly on our coffee table; and once we get the bathroom remodeled the custom soaps will have a place too. 

Hope to see you again – perhaps Mexican food with Margaritas? Thanks again, Deborah – you made a difference in our lives. 

Gary and Kriss Ham


Thank you so much for all of your time and attention this weekend. Your knowledge and vision helped us so much and we didn’t feel overwhelmed or confused about our options. We truly enjoyed getting to know both you and Beth and yours will be the first two “hose warming party” invites we send.

Stacey & Kevin

Terrific service!!! Wow! Jamie McDevitt and her staff worked hard to help us with a long-distance move. They were organized and lined up several properties for us to see… all of which were within our budget. Jamie’s knowledge of the local market and her friendly upbeat attitude helped immeasurably! We ultimately found the house of our dreams at a price we could comfortably afford. The service didn’t stop with getting our offer accepted. Jamie helped with everything from making sure our inspections were carried out to helping find appropriate contractors once we moved. We knew we could pick up the phone and reach the office when we had questions. Melanie was great about coordinating inspections/surveys, etc. for us. We can’t get over how smoothly this end of our move went. Trust McDevitt Town and Country for top-quality service whether you’re making a long-distance or local move. Thank you so much, Jamie, Melanie and Donna.



Dear Jamie,

Having relocated to Southern Pines from out of state, I went to McDevitt for help in finding the perfect new home.

I found my sales agent, at McDevitt’s, to be extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in this area. She spent numerous evenings and weekends with me, in order to accommodate my work schedule, and was able to show me a large selection of properties which would suit my needs.

With the help of my agent at McDevitt’s, I was able to find the home I was looking for in a wonderful neighborhood on a golf course, which was convenient to work and shopping. I have continued to be very happy with the decision I made to purchase this property. All of the staff at McDevitt’s were incredibly helpful and wonderful to deal with during my home buying experience and guided me every step of the way.

I would recommend McDevitt’s, without reservation, to anyone who is looking for a realtor in this area, they are the best!

We just can’t thank you enough. You really made things so much fun. You did so much more than you had to do. We love the house and the neighborhood. Everything you told us was exactly right. You really are a credit to your profession.

Stop by and see us- when you’re not too busy- and let us take you to lunch.

Thanks again for all you have done for us!

I have been negligent in thanking you and Jamie for taking such good care of my parents. Thanks to you, the house sold and for more money than we expected! What a load off of all our minds! You and your staff were so kind helpful to them – and to me! I can’t thank you enough.


 We appreciated your help with our search process. I’m amazed that it all came together so quickly and easily. You gave us just the right amount of follow up without the pressure that some other realtors have given us in the past. You respected the fact that we weren’t completely sure what we were looking for or when we would be willing to pull the trigger. Fortunately, I believe we found something that will be perfect for us in the future.

Thanks again for everything.


 We feel like we’ve known you for years! Thank you for your excellent help in introducing us to the area, including us in the gathering with family and friends, and your effort in identifying and showing us potential properties.

We are totally charmed by what we saw of life in the Sandhills and are looking forward to next steps.


This note is long overdue – but only because things have been busy and going at such a great pace.

This Thanksgiving has given me pause to think over this last year — and the year before. I have worked with you twice – once when looking for horse property – and the second time when looking for a new home. I was truly lucky when I chose you as my realtor.

I certainly had my own opinions when I came back to this area – some of which were not well founded. For certain I needed assistance making some basic decisions. The time you spent with me was considerable – and you were always available.

As I have settled in I have the time to reflect on the guidance, the professional service you provided me over the last two years. You guided me through the myriads of choices, the thousands of times I shifted direction – and my mind. You did this all with patience and the utmost professionalism. Your guidance allowed me to choose the home I needed – and the home that was right from the beginning.

You did more than find me a house – you found me a home in which many memories will be built. You became more than my realtor, you became my friend with all of those wonderful intangible qualities.

I hope to be connecting my friends with you when it’s their time to make their move. I will certainly make sure that this area is on their list!



Thank you for all your hard work in listing our house. Your professionalism is greatly appreciated. We would not hesitate to relist again with McDevitt Town & Country.



WOW…thank you SO much for getting us that great place at that rate. Really, I am very, very grateful. This is way beyond what I expected.

You have all been so wonderful to my husband and I as we prepare for the move there. I hope to have a big barbecue this summer where I can properly thank everyone.



Just a brief note to say thanks and to let you know how much we appreciated all you did for us on our recent visit to your area. We could not have picked a nicer, more informed person to work with. Your professional yet friendly manner made quite an impression on us and we will be back to see you.



Ken and I just wanted to write you a note to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you to find the “Pinehurst, on the Golf Course, House of our Dreams.” Your vast knowledge of the area and the housing market in Pinehurst, as well as your guidance in picking just the right house for needs and taste, was immeasurably valuable to us. Your gentle coaxing (are we ever glad we listened to your advice) on picking just the right property was greatly appreciated. Now that we look back and see the pros and cons to the two houses that we were debating over, we can’t tell you how much we value your input.

After we made our decision, your expert help in working with getting everything accomplished on time for the closing made for an incredibly smooth settlement. Then, when you showed up on our doorstep the night we were moving in with a delicious dinner for two very tired new homeowners, it was just the icing on the cake. How lucky we were to have chosen you for our real estate agent, and new Pinehurst friend.

Ken and Sandie

After taking time on her day off to speak with us and ascertain our needs when we dropped in unexpectedly, Inge continued to work with us via the Internet over the next few months, sending us information about homes and learning what we liked and disliked. It went so well that we subsequently spent only one day looking at homes with her, making an offer on one the following day and subsequently buying it. We highly commend Inge for her personal service!

Dear Melanie,

Thank you for your assistance!! I will be seeing you soon!



Dear Melanie and Deborah,

This is just a little note of gratitude to both of you for your sweet kindness during our conversations today. Melanie, your understanding regarding the tough questions I needed to ask was appreciated more than words can say. And Deborah, it was so nice to talk to you. Thank you for all the time you spent in helping us come up with a plan and sharing more information. Any concerns we had left are now gone so it is full steam ahead! Because of you two ladies we feel we have found our home sight unseen. That says so much about you, your warm friendliness(and that’s just been via phone) makes me (us) feel like we can’t wait to meet you. You are wonderful ambassadors for North Carolina and your welcome has truly been heart-warming. Many many thanks.


Terri (&Marshall, too) MacDonald
