I finally got my new furniture. My place is beginning to look like a home. I love were I am. I see people walking their dogs and children playing. I miss the home that Nick and I shared but I know this is what he would want for me. My prayers were answered. I also want to thank Vanna for helping with my house. She also helped me move. If you ever need a realtor she’s the one to help.

Ms Watkins

Thank you for all the work you put in trying to sell my house and sticking with me through this whole process. You were great.

To whom it may concern,

Vanna recently acted as my real estate agent to sell my home in Cary, NC. She clearly knows and understands the local market and brought useful information to assist with pricing and preparing my home for the market. Vanna was responsive to my questions and made suggestions that were very helpful. Best of all, she quickly identified an interested buyer who made an acceptable cash offer. All in all, I was very pleased with her knowledge, assistance and attention to my needs as a seller.

Regards, Ms. ACB

Hi Vanna,

Thank you for making another real estate transaction a relatively stress-free experience. The sale of our townhouse in Morrisville went as smooth as the purchase seven years ago. 

Your attention to detail and timely communication showed us a level of professionalism that was of the highest caliber. Not once did we feel the need to track you down to find out what was going on. You kept us abreast of all issues as soon as they arose. By doing so, we were able to resolve everything on time with no hiccups. 

When we learned of the closing delay, your efforts allowed us to sign documents and start our drive across the country as planned. Because of you, we arrived in California in time for us to meet our prior commitments.

We wish you all the best and if we ever make it out your way again, we’ll be sure to stop by and say hi.


Jon and Linda Todd

When we decided it was time to look for a bigger house, it was during a time of low real estate inventory in our area. We looked at lots of places, but nothing that we saw seemed quite right. We were feeling discouraged about our options until we got a call from Vanna (on a holiday, no less), who had tweaked our search criteria in a minor way and found a new listing...two hours later we were in her office, making an offer on the house she found for us.  It is perfect for our family, and we will always be grateful to Vanna for going the extra mile to uncover this home for us.  Vanna has a special instinct and understanding about local real estate and what people are looking for in a home that can't be taught. She is energetic, detail-oriented and client-focused.  
Not only did Vanna help us buy our new house, she helped sell our old house in record time. The buyers' agent was difficult to deal with, but Vanna remained professional at all times, offered us sage advice about dealing with the buyers' demands, advocated for us when buyers' demands were unreasonable, and lent a sympathetic ear when we were frustrated and unsure.  Thanks to Vanna's hard work, we made it through to closing. 

We hope to be in our new home for a long time to come, but if we ever need to buy or sell a home again in the future, Vanna Langdon is the only realtor for us.

Vanna is seriously the best real estate aficionado I've ever met! She'll move on something and generally get you what you want within a few hours! I've experienced her handiwork at least four times already and I've been pleased and impressed every time! I highly recommend!!


Thank you so much for all of your help in selling our house. I really appreciate all of your hard work, as well as your kind words.
Thanks, again. You are a blessing.

Dear Vanna,

I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for all that you've done for George and myself.  Of course we've both been calling people today telling them about the house and everyone is amazed at how smooth the process has been.  I've been telling all of them how great you've been!  Something must be said for fate as things seem to fall into place but also for all the effort and knowledge that you've put into the situation.

Thank you again,

I would like to recommend an exceptional real estate agent, Vanna Langdon, at Howard Perry and Walston Realtors in Cary (919) 874- 8788. Vanna recently helped my husband and I sell our house and purchase another. She has an excellent eye for detail, and is very knowledgeable with respect to real estate. She was always very prompt at returning our phone calls, very pleasant and patient in showing us lots of homes, and has an incredible amount of energy!!

About 8 months before we wanted to put our house up for sale, we wanted to meet with an agent and get some pointers on prepping the house for sale. I called several agents and Vanna was the only one who was willing to take the time to meet with us. She met with us and provided an accurate Market Analysis of our home, which included several tips on what would make the home more appealing to the buyers. Beyond this meeting, Vanna provided listings to us by mail, to keep us informed of what was out there on the market to buy.

In preparing our house for sale, we worked from the tips Vanna had suggested in her Market Analysis. In putting our house on the market, we were impressed with the professional booklet that Vanna assembled on the “special features” of our house, as well as the informational handouts for prospective buyers. Once on the market, we had two offers by the second day of showing which resulted in our selling the house for a higher price than our asking price.

I give Vanna all the credit for our house selling so quickly.

Vanna also helped us in finding another house … and we had to find one quickly since our house sold so fast. Vanna was incredible! She was patiently devoted to helping us find the house that we wanted. As we approached closing, there were a few times when my husband and I couldn’t get off work to meet with a repairman or inspector. Vanna readily took time out of her busy schedule to meet with them on our behalf.

My husband and I had a truly great experience working with this agent!  I highly recommend her to others looking to buy or sell their house.

Dear Mr. Robbins,

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what a delightful experience I had buying and selling a home with one of your realtors, Vanna Langdon. From our initial meeting Vanna worked diligently and efficiently on every issue we faced during the process. Her expertise in preparing my townhouse for the market and setting an attractive price for both consumers and myself was unprecedented. During a time when there was great uncertainty in our nation’s economic system, my home was on the market for a total of 20 days.

During the same time period Vanna assisted with the purchase of a new home. Vanna made herself available whenever we wanted to view homes. She shared with us detailed information about specific properties, neighborhoods, and construction and future plans for surrounding areas. As full time professionals, we had limited time to spend on research and comparisons. Vanna was able to maximize our time through her knowledge base of each and every property we viewed. Vanna continued to work with us through the entire process such as, participating in our walk through and inspection as well as attending the closing with us to ensure everything was as smooth and easy as possible.

Vanna Langdon comes highly recommended due to her energy, enthusiasm, vast knowledge base and her sincere desire to make your home buying and/or selling experience as exciting and informative as possible.

Dear Mr. Walston,

I am writing this letter to you to express my sincere appreciation to your organization and one of your very talented agents, Vanna Langdon, of your Cary office.

Recently, I accepted an executive position with a Cary, NC based firm and relocated from the Northern Virginia area. For my family, this was our sixth move in nine years! Given that my new employer requested that I begin my new role right away, I had very little time to search for a home.

A good friend, who also relocated to our same neighborhood, referred Vanna Langdon to me. Since we really only had a couple of weekends to conduct our search, I impressed upon Vanna the need for efficiency in the search process as well as the various, unique family requirements of our new home.

Vanna was very efficient! She listened to our requirements and only showed us properties that matched our criteria. In fact, we ended up purchasing the first home we looked at!

More than just efficient in the search, Vanna acted as if she was purchasing this home herself. She was my liaison with the builder as he was putting the final touches on our parade home. She arranged for the inspector and even crawled under the house with him to thoroughly inspect the foundation, footings, pipes, etc.! She made all the necessary appointments for the appraiser, closing attorney, walkthroughs (of which there were two!) and really was my “eyes and ears” while I was busy commuting back and forth between Virginia and North Carolina for work.

I have experienced my fair share of agents in the past, but Vanna was undoubtedly the best agent, assistant, inspector, and friend during this transaction that I have ever worked with! She is truly an asset to your organization and is a credit to your reputation!

I want to thank you for a family’s smooth transition to North Carolina and for the outstanding efforts of your agent, Vanna Langdon!

Feel free to contact me as below, should you require any further information.

Dear Joey,

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the services provided to us by Vanna Langdon

I first spoke with Vanna over the phone in November 97. I explained I was in a relocation situation and timing was everything. Our housing priorities were long and only a few were negotiable. Vanna quickly went to work and began faxing me a wide selection of Cary homes in the most desired neighborhoods. A 100 page detailed binder was later given to me when we met. I only had a few hours that day before returning back to Indiana. Vanna sensed my urgency and was quick to recommend we stay with a short list. She knew exactly what we wanted and ultimately led us to where we are now, Preston Village.

Vanna continued to impress me during the construction phase of our home. She called us regularly and sent us polaroids of the house. When a few building mishaps occurred, Vanna was right there making sure the repairs were completed to her satisfaction. She was the reason this house was completed on time and with the quality we had come to expect.

Our mortgage search ended when Vanna suggested I call Sun Belt Mortgage. I was able to save thousands in interest and on the down payment thanks to her referral. Vanna also found us a reliable building inspector who provided us with a detailed inspection of the house. Even today, months after closing, she is always making sure our needs are being met.

As a realtor, she is simply the best. That is why we continue to recommend her whenever we learn of a realtor need. As a friend, she will always be a welcomed family member. Thank you again for the support your office gave us during our move to North Carolina.

Dear Vanna,

Thank you for all the time and effort in helping us to complete the purchase of our new home. You went far beyond what we ever expected from a realtor, and your professional knowledge and demeanor made us feel confident and comfortable that nothing was overlooked. Even though the process turned out to be more complicated than we first thought, your encouragement and hard work on our behalf is sincerely appreciated. We will certainly recommend you highly to anyone who is buying a home in this area.

Best of luck in the future, and we will of course keep in touch. Thanks again for all your hard work.

Dear Mr. Walston,

This letter is meant to convey my highest regards for your real estate agent, Vanna Langdon in your Cary, North Carolina  office. Vanna worked diligently with me to help me find a home in an extremely tight time frame. She ambitiously negotiated a home contract on my behalf and did not back down when the builder’s ineffective sales representative threatened to end the negotiations.

Vanna remained committed to an uneventful closing, even though the builder placed numerous construction obstacles in our path. We closed on time without surprises or unexpected expenses. Today, I am settled in my new home and would confidently refer Vanna to friends and colleagues. 

Kind regards,

Chris M. Hartley

Dear Mr. Robbins:

This letter is in reference to a wonderful experience I had with one of your agents, Vanna Langdon.

I recently closed on a condo and I am so pleased with my purchase, as well as the entire process, thanks to Vanna. In my particular case, I needed to make a decision of whether to continue renting or to buy, all within a 2-month time frame before signing a new 12-month lease. I decided to buy; however, I was literally in the dark regarding the whole buying process. At that time, Vanna went beyond the call of duty, in my opinion, to expeditiously locate properties she knew would appeal to me and that were within the purchase price we had discussed, not to mention explaining the process to me in detail. I felt extremely comfortable with vanna’s knowledge of real estate and I was confident that I had chosen the right agent.

Experiencing good customer service these days seems to be a rarity, so I feel fortunate to have had excellent service especially regarding a large purchase. I believe that Vanna is a true asset to HP&W, she worked very hard to meet my needs, and I will not hesitate to refer Vanna to my friends and coworkers in the future.

Thanks again for the excellent service I received from Vanna.

Prospective Clients:

Vanna Langdon deserves the highest praise for being a reliable, effective, and caring realtor. She exhibits these qualities and many more in her dealings with her clients. She is a realtor who will go the extra mile to be sure you are satisfied with your home and she will not stop working until she is certain you are happy.

My husband, Paul and I had the pleasure of working with Vanna from March through August of 1999. We were in the process of buying our first home. We screened several realtors, but what stood out about Vanna was her prompt response to all our questions and concerns. This quality did not cease once we had signed the contract with her; as soon as we phoned her, she would call us back. She would answer our questions as honestly as possible, and if she did not have the answer, she would find out quickly and call us back. Another reason we chose Vanna was her commitment to her job as thoroughly as possible. When our inspector could not finish inspecting the house, she immediately negotiated to have the builder pay for him to come back at a later date. A final reason to choose Vanna is her dedication to you as a client. After we closed on our house, there were several items that the builder was to repair. Even though, technically, Vanna’s responsibility as a realtor was fulfilled, she took the time to call us on numerous occasions to ascertain whether the work had been done.

Vanna comes with our highest recommendations. We plan to work with Vanna when we purchase our next home.


Kim and Paul Eckstein

Dear Vanna,

Thanks for helping me find this house. I love it. I have almost gotten unpacked, which seems to be a never ending process. I wish you could come by and see it, now that I have all my “junk” in. I had a storage building delivered last weekend and have gotten about half of the things out of the garage. The other half goes into the attic which I still have to floor before moving those things. Maybe before winter I will be able to park inside.

You are a wonderful realtor, very attentive to business details and the person you are working for. I wish you luck in the future and I know you will do a great job in your career. Anyone I know that needs a realtor, I will send your way.

Thanks again

We would like to express how wonderful your realtor Miss Vanna Langdon was to us. She is based in Cary, NC. After transferring from Yokosuka Japan into the area, Miss Langdon was our "angel" helping us with the local short-term rental housing market. We were impressed at the level of sincerity & hard working professionalism that she afforded us. Miss Langdon will be the realtor that we contact when we hopefully purchase our home in the next 3-6 months in the Cary, NC region. Vanna, my wife and I "THANK YOU". Sincerely, Scott & Jenny Anderson.

Dear Mr. Walston,

I’m writing to express my great appreciation for the way that one of your agents handled the sale of my mother’s house recently. Vanna Langdon was extraordinarily professional, upbeat, thorough, and helpful during a time that was a difficult one for our family.  

She did the best job of any agent I’ve ever dealt with and in every instance went above and beyond our expectations.  Not only did she perform her “real estate” duties admirably; she also helped in ways that no other agent ever has in the past.

Vanna Langdon helped us get the property ready for walk-throughs, inspections and closing and generally dotted all of her i’s and crossed all of her t’s to perfection.

I would heartily recommend Vanna Langdon to anyone who seeks a “hassle free” real estate experience.

Thank you for the quality service your company has afforded us.
