Client Testimonials

Read what others have to say about their experiences working with Bryant Brantley and his team to buy or sell their property in North Carolina and Southern Virginia. Did you have a great experience working with Bryant Brantley or one of the great real estate agents on his team? We want to hear about it!

Bryant presented all of our options for selling our home clearly and professionally. He kept in constant communication with us, every step of the way. From listing, through closing, we remained well informed and felt that he was as invested in selling our home as we were. Bryant's attention to detail and availability to us made the process flow smoothly. What began as a seller/agent relationship, I feel, ended up as a friendship. I look forward to working with him in the future for the purchase of our new home.

- William and Stephanie S.

I've known Bryant for many years. I have had many times to interface with him and have always found it enjoyable. I have 15 apartment that my wife and I had managed for 4-5 years. The units were full 50-70 % of the time. After I turned the management over to Sue and Bryant the units are full  80-100% of the time. This has worked out good for both of us.

- George Pardue

Bryant is the best realtor in North Carolina. He works hard for his clients and gets the job done. He sold a home that my wife and I built in a very bad economy and sold us our current home. If I sale or buy any properties in the future Bryant is the one I will call.    Thanks for all your hard work.

- Darrell Parker

Me and my husband were on the search for our first home when I ran across a home that Melinda was selling. We meet up with her at the house and the first time we meet she was very nice. When we decided that this was the house we wanted to buy she was very helpful throughout the process. Whenever we had a question about thing she was there to answer it or if she didn’t know the answer she would get us the answer. We are loving our new home as first time home buyers and we have Meldina to thank for that!

- Jessica Timm
Melinda does such great work as a realtor! From the beginning process of discussing selling my house, throughout the entire process, Melinda helped me every step of the way! Selling my first house seemed like a scary step, but Melinda made sure I always understood paperwork, terminology, and all the other fine details. She is such a great and trustful person when it comes to buying/selling a home! I highly recommend her!
- Sabrina Bowman

Melinda is a wonderful and very professional agent! As a first-time buyer, I had no clue what to expect or how the process would be, but Melinda was so patient and very active in answering questions and explaining every detail. She goes above and beyond to satisfy future homeowners or home sellers. I appreciate her so much and recommend her to anyone that is looking for great service and satisfaction.

- Jackie Garcia
Melinda was recommended to me by a family member. Although I already knew Melinda, I had no idea how much she would help my husband and I with purchasing our first home. My husband was deployed overseas while I searched for our new home, and she was with me every step of the way. I felt so comfortable knowing that she advocated for our best interests. She went above the call, and I would highly recommend Melinda to anyone in search of a home.
- Jessica Cooper
Melinda was an awesome agent!! She was so helpful and patient with us in looking for our home! She was active on the questions we needed to ask! She helped a lot in the paperwork that had to be done! She was so much help! I recommend anyone trying to find a home, to go to her! She is so much help and explains every detail of the steps in getting a home!!
- Paloma Solis
Melinda was wonderful to work with!! In the original home visit she brought a team member and they both made recommendations. It took me several months to prepare my house but ultimately it sold way faster than I expected and at a higher price as well. I will be recommending her to anyone looking to sell their home. 
- Andrew Frye

My husband and I were very fortunate to work with Bryant. He was quick to accommodate whatever needs we had and made the purchase of the property a trouble-free process. We simply could not have had a better experience and are very grateful for efforts on our behalf.

- Laura Pardue

This was our first time buy a home. Bryant was recommended to me by a co-worker that has used him for years and I am glad we choose him! He was very professional and on top of the entire house search to purchase process. He is very knowledgeable and will give you his honest opinion about the properties. We never felt like we were forced into buying a home. I will definitely use him again in future!

- Seth Shouse

We did not think twice about who to get to represent our home for sale! Bryant was great to work with, kept us informed along the way and helped us through closing. We would recommend him to anyone looking to sell -- or buy -- a home!

- Phil Goble Jr.

Melinda was awesome!!! Selling our house was very stressful and she helped us every step of the way. She always answered all of my questions and told us what to expect, the good and the bad. She represented our best interest during the process and we couldn't be happier. She went above and beyond and gave us direction when buying our house, even though it was for sale by owner and she wasn't the realtor in that sale.

- Misty Cooke

Melinda Burnett (who just so happens to be my mother) was the best real estate agent we could have asked for. She made this new experience for us such an easy process. She made our wants/needs a priority and took care of everything we needed as quickly as possible. I couldn't recommend anyone better for the job!

- Schae Cox
We just moved to the area and met Bryant as we were searching for land to buy. From the moment we met Bryant he was friendly, helpful, and responsive. He is a pleasure to work with and we plan to refer him to our friends and family.
- Rob and Kristie Szarpa

When my Fiancé and I began looking for homes we didn't know where to start. We turned to Melinda for help and she put us in the right direction from the beginning. Her effort to make sure we found exactly what we were looking for in the shortest time possible is amazing while staying within the budget. Without her assistance we would still be looking at the market today. We are extremely pleased with her and all that she did for us. I highly recommend Melinda to anyone who is either buying or selling property!!

- David L. Tilley Jr

Melinda was awesome! She is the only agent I would contact if buying a home. She is very compassionate and puts herself in the buyer's shoes! We can't thank her enough for all she did to make our buying process as smooth as possible! SHE IS THE BEST!

- Ron and Naomi Magadieu

Bryant did a great job. You couldn’t ask for a better person to work with. He keeps you up to date on all information. And if he doesn’t have the information he will get it.

- Dallas Beck

Bryant was a very good agent from the very first time we met him until we closed escrow.He did a wonderful job of informing us of how things worked in North Carolina which is different from where we came from.He was very patient with us in our search for a home and he also has a good sense of humor.

- Dave Gollon
How can I begin! Sandra stopped by one day as requested by a friend. I informed her of my two real estate needs. One was the sale of a property in Winston. She immediately listed this property on multiple real estate sites. In less than TEN DAY, there was an offer. In LESS THAN A MONTH, there was a full price offer!!! She was enthusiastic and very diligent in representing me in this sale! I would recommend Sandra for any real estate need, hands down!
- Sheryl K. Melvin

Sandra is a highly motivated a knowledgeable agent and will help you find what you're looking for and no questions go unanswerd. She is super nice and she makes you feel like family.

- Dawn Albin

What I found most interesting about working with Bryant is that I never felt I was being "sold" something. By that I mean there was never any pressure, no nagging emails or phone calls to push the sale on me. And yet he was always readily available to answer any questions or meet with me. He was helpful in bringing things to my attention about which I just didn't know to ask. I felt Bryant was more of a partner in the process rather than a salesman. What better recommendation can I give than that after making a land purchase through Brantley Realty I asked Bryant to be my realtor for the future sale of my home.

- Jack Ciancio
Sandra was extremely helpful to our family in purchasing just the right home. She was very flexible in searching for, arranging appointments and getting answers to our questions. I would happily recommend her to anyone searching for real estate. 
- Ingle Armstrong-Sloop

From the time we started looking for a home in Surry County, Melinda was always willing to assist. Once we decided on the house we wanted, Melinda was very instrumental in negotiating with the seller for the items we requested. She was always willing to meet with us when we wanted contractors to give us quotes for work we wanted completed if we bought the house. This was valuable time away from her personal time or work time that she was not required to do. She was always willing and never complained about the time. 

We highly recommend Melinda as a realtor to anyone searching for a home in this area. She will give you a 110 percent of her effort to make sure you are satisfied.

- Dennis and Gayle Riggs

Has always been of the utmost in integrity. a very trusted person to be aligned with.

I highly recommend Melinda Cox for your real estate needs! She is the Best!!! 

- Fonda Branch

Bryant was attentive throughout the process; especially during the final days of bringing the sale to closure. He represented us at closing and attended to all the details, including carting away some trash from the home that we were not able to take care of before we left the home. I recommend him as a dependable and conscientious agent. 

- Ralph Rumer
Melinda was great to work with.

Bryant Brantley does a great job. He is the best Real Estate Broker I have ever worked with. He is a very good problem solver. 
- James L. Smith

I am more than happy to recommend Melinda Cox to assist you in finding the perfect home. Being first time home buyers, my fiance and I had a lot of questions and doubts. Melinda was there to assure us that everything was okay and answered all of our questions. During the home buying experience she was there every step of the way. She is professional, knowledgable, honest, helpful, and determined. We are so grateful to have worked with Melinda. She is the best!

- Mariah Wall

Sandra Richards was a tremendous asset to my wife and I being able to find and purchase our home. She worked with us before, during, and even after the sale to make sure that everything was taken care of. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home or real estate.

- Steve Hackler

Im new at this. Melinda got me through a hard time purchasing my home. I really don't know what I would not have her to help me. I recommend Melinda Cox to anyone who wishes to find a home. A hardworking sweet lady. I am proud to have found a new friend. She gets the job done with GODS blessings. Thank you Melinda.??

Sandra was a great help to me when I started looking for a home to buy. She was quick to set up viewings and when I found the right home to make an offer on she was a big help to me through the whole process. I would highly recommend her! 

- Diana Scott

Sandra was phenomenal through the entire process of buying our home. She was always willing to show us properties we were interested in and listened to our needs/wants to help point us in the right direction. The communication was always quick and she made sure to get us any information we asked for. Sandra held our hand through the entire process, making the offer- home inspections- even helping us when we had questions about our loan. We would definitely use her again if we decide to sell our home and look for a new one. Absolutely wonderful experience!

- Kathryn Tilley
Bryant has represented me and my wife in our real estate transactions in Surry County for more than a year. He provided excellent guidance in dividing our farm into 4 different tracts which made it possible to sell one tract rather quickly and a difficult smaller tract just recently. 

We now have 2 remaining tracts listed with him. We are confident that Bryant will continue to promote our remaining property and we will be closing on these tracts in 2017. 

Bryant came highly recommended to us when we were looking for a Realtor in Surry County and I am pleased to recommend him as well.
- Kermit Lawrence, Jr.

This Pertains to Land Purchased in Stokes County (Pinnacle, NC): 

Worked well with me during the process. 
Timely responses to both text and emails. 
Took time to listen and try to get quality answers to questions or concerns. 
Helpful in coordinating the signatures required to keep process moving. 

Would use again should the neighboring acreages become available at more reasonable prices.

- Larry Stephens
Melinda was the best real estate agent we've ever worked with. She was our buyers agent and was accessible at all times and extremely accommodating. Any questions we had were answered within usually a few moments of asking and if she didn't know the answer, she would find it. It was our first home-buying experience but, we had worked with another real estate agent very briefly and were thrilled that we switched. She staged the home beautifully and it was very clean when we went to view it. Always early and very professional. I highly recommend her for any and all of your real estate needs.
- Savanah Hayes

When the decision was made to sell our horse farm and a house with acreage we knew we would utilize the services of Bryant Brantley and Associates. He was honest in giving complete advice on the preparations needed before putting our properties on the market, and that advice led to the sale of both properties within a month of each other. Bryant was always upbeat and positive about the housing market and we valued his experience and trustworthiness and advice completely and never doubted its value. I would highly recommend utilizing Bryant Brantley 's involvement in any real estate transaction.

- Robin R. Silcott

Highly recommend David. We purchased from afar, David did what was needed locally to allow us to make the purchase. Above and beyond.

- Anonymous

Sandra has been fantastic to work with! She was extremely helpful in assisting us with finding investment houses. Besides being knowledgeable about the reality and mortgage industry she is highly spoken of in the community as well. Sandra has a very warm personality, and a wonderful sense of humor too.

- Shirley Kay Eck
David Brantley did one fantastic job from beginning to end! He went above and beyond the duties expected of a typical realtor. He made the buying process easy for us and he looked out for our best interest. He negotiated a great deal, too! We couldn't have done it without him!! 
We truly appreciate all of his efforts and want to thank him and thank him and thank him for all he has done. 
We highly recommend him to others who need assistance with any realty services. 
- Joan Mincevich
We loved working with Bryant! Very responsive and helpful! Easy to work with!
- Anonymous

Melinda did such a great job! She went above and beyond for us on so many levels. She really gets the job done. Melinda will help you find what suits your family's needs without busting the bank. So give her a call.

- David and Melissa Marsh

We started off looking at properties with her colleague, Bryant Brantley (also our landlord). He couldn't make it to a showing and he asked Melinda to help us out and I am so glad he did. Melinda was there to answer all the questions that we had, and responded to my million emails about the whole process. After a sale fell through (because of the sellers listing agent), Melinda assured us there would be something else out there, and helped us along the way. She was even willing to do work I wouldn't assume other realtors do, and kept us on schedule and informed us of our next steps. We did find another house, and she knew the realtor and called her personally that day to sure up the sell. I don't think we could have asked for a better experience with a realtor, professionally and personally. She spoke with us and our daughter like she knew us. Melinda wasn't just our realtor, she was our friend. I would definitely recommend Melinda if someone needed a realtor (already have!) . Thank you Melinda for everything (and our basket!)! :)

- Kayla Vaughn

Melinda was great from our first time communicating. She was very helpful with our search for a new beginning in my families life. Not a single bump in the entire purchasing process and she even beat us to the punch when it came to asking questions and providing answers during the process. As a first time homebuyer, there were things that I was uncertain of, but Melinda was helpful with everything. I couldn't have imagined a better purchase process or a better realtor during the process. I already have and will continue recommending Melinda to family and friends that are in the market for a new home or interesting in selling a home.

- Christopher Redmond

We highly recommend Sandra Richards. Sandra helped us sell a very unique property in Stokes county. Although we have bought and sold many properties in our day we have never been so emotionally attached. Not only did it sell quickly she took an interest in helping us and the new owners transition. Without Sandra and her knowledge and caring personality I feel this transaction would have been more difficult. If we ever need a real estate agent again, or anyone we know does, without a doubt our recommendation will be Sandra Richards. Thanks for all you do!

- Robert & Lori Garren

Melinda is a great realtor to work with. She helped me with my first home purchase she explained everything to me clearly and she was there every step of the way. I truly appreciate Melinda working with me.

- Arturo Cortes

The most important thing a real estate investor can have is a good team. At the top of the list, of course, is a realtor. I've worked with Sandra on two investment property purchases so far. She is always professional and patient. Equally as important is the effort she puts forth to understand my requirements. Sandra is my realtor because I feel that I can talk to her. It isn't just another sale for her. Sandra's extensive knowledge of the rental business and the mortgage/finance side of things is extremely valuable to me, as well.

- Steve Hutson

- Savannah Dove
I would recommend Sandra to all of my friends and family. She has made every step of the selling process easy for me.


- Justin Robertson
Sandra was recommended to us by the staff of our financial advisor. We immediately found Sandra to be a highly dedicated, professional and personable realtor/individual. Sandra provided us with an up to date and accurate real estate market analysis allowing us to arrive at a listing price which ensured increased interest in our home and led to the sale of our home in a timely manner. Sandra assembled the listing for our home which included photos and video taken by a professional photographer and a description of our home which was very detailed and well written. The listing was available for viewing not only locally but nationwide. Through out the listing Sandra worked hard to keep us informed of activity and interest in our home. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking to list their home.
- Bobby D Miller

Sandra is the best realtor in the world!

- Leopoldo Ramos

My wife and I had been in the market looking for a house for several months. Once we found our home we contacted Sandra for a viewing. Sandra had a viewing set up right away and was very helpful answering all our questions. Sandra made the buying process simple and made sure we was pleased with everything as the house was being closed. I would recommend Sandra and Realty to anyone wanting to purchase a home.

- Brent Slate

Sandra was very knowledgeable and helpful finding a property to fit my brother and sister-in-laws needs. While working within a budget. My interaction with Sandra was mostly by e-mail or phone since I live in California. Everything was handled quickly and efficiently.

Bryant Brantley has been an absolute joy to work with. He is very pleasant and courteous to all of us. Bryant demonstrates the charatcter and quality that you look from a Realtor. 

He was always punctual and have shown us few properties. Not only that, the house we bought, he showed us as many times as wanted to see from each and every angle.

- Lynn Holmes

We would recommend Sandra Richards to anyone looking to purchase a home or property. She is very friendly and professional. She was always there when we needed something or when we just had questions. Without Sandra we would have been lost in trying to purchase a home. Thank You Sandra for everything.

- Johnny and Patsy Hensley

If you are seeking a Realtor who is personable, professional, and focused upon achieving results; you need to know Sandra Richards. Circumstances dictated that my interactions with Sandra occur by phone and e-mail from afar while she worked closely with family members locally. She worked tirelessly to identify and show appropriate properties for my family members which ultimately resulted in the purchase of a home in a very short time period . . . all the while working with me by long-distance. Said succinctly, if you want a Realtor with an outstanding attitude, excellent skills, and an extensive knowledge of the market in the Surry County Area; just call Sandra!

- Wayne Bowman

Bryant worked diligently with me over 6 months to discover the ideal manufacturing facility to start up a weaving operation. Bryant's attributes: responsive to my requests/questions, intelligent/knowledgable real estate professional, and dedicated to his clients to meet their needs.

- Christopher Kyle Shofner

Melinda did a wonderful job staying on top of things during the bidding process. We could not have done it without her. She also helped us get our closing done really quickly. She was always a step ahead. I recommend her for any of your real estate needs.

- Penny Bowman

As first time homebuyers my husband and I had no clue what the process would be like. We were so thankful we had Melinda to guide us through each step and answer our multitude of questions. It's also a great feeling when you can tell your realtor wants what's best for you and that's exactly what Melinda's top priority is. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you Melinda!

- Lacy Leftwich

I first met Melinda when I was looking at a listing she had. She was very knowledgable and easy to talk to. Her attention to detail and helping point out the positives and negatives of buying a house was extremely helpful. 

One thing that I want to stress is how much I felt I could trust Melinda. She went out of the way to assist me with the buying process and never made me feel pressured to make a decision. She was very professional and friendly to work with. 

I would recommend Melinda in a heartbeat. If you are trying to find a good agent, Melinda is the one!!!

- Theresa Moore

I have gotten to know Sandra through having my moms house listed with her for sale. We are in the process of selling personal items that belonged to my mom and dad. Sandra's input during this process has been most helpful and her professional manner has impressed myself and my brothers. She is always willing to help in any way to help this process. We owned a lot across from this house and she was instrumental in helping us sell that lot. We are looking forward to a continued relationship with Sandra during the estate sale of personal items and also the sale of the real property. I would recommend her expertise in her business to anyone.

- Jimmy Corder

Bryant Brantley was very professional in explaining the process of selling my home and land in terms that I can understand. Being a senior citizen not understanding the rules and regulations of selling my property after losing a spouse. 

He walked me thru the process of selling my home and land in a very professional manner. I would definately recommend him to anyone selling their home or property, and won't hesitate to call on him again. 

- Very Satisfied Customer

Bryant did a fantastic job for us. 
Our home was sold in 30 days on the recommendations on how to market it by Bryant.

- Rick Payne

I have been dealing with Bryant Brantley for all my real estate needs for many years. During those years I have bought and sold properties and utilized Bryant's knowledge and skills to assist with the many processes involved for these transactions. Bryant has always been forthright, and upfront with me and my family...and I will continue to value his sales expertise in the future. 

I recommend him to my friends and family for any real estate inquiries they may have, and encourage anyone else that has requirements in properties etc to pursue his abilities.

- Charles Norman

Of all the realtors we worked with, Bryant was the most honest with us about the homes we looked at. When buying a home having an honest realtor who has integrity is extremely important but very rare. He was very easy to reach and always made time when we wanted to view a home. We ended up buying our first home through him and it was a very smooth transition. I highly recommend realty world and Brant Brantley.

- Jessica and Kenny Foil

We are pleased with the professional service Bryant provided for us on our recent sale of land. He responded promptly to any emails or telephone messages we sent to him. He did a good job of posting signage about the property and he coordinated the negotiations with the buyers in a timely fashion. Finally, he organized the closing so that everything was in place and went smoothly.

- The Currins

I would recommend Sandra Richards of Realty World to anyone looking to purchase a house or land. She was very professional and helpful during my transaction. She is a very friendly person who loves a good laugh. I hope to work with her again!
