Sunny was extremely knowledgeable as well as patient with us for well over six months as we reviewed over 150 homes, and probably just as many pieces of land. We finally found a great lot to build our lake house. You will do well if you select Sunny as your agent!

Sunny helped me find and purchase my home here in Cornelius. I was just talking to my son the other day about Sunny. We both agreed that if we ever sell or buy any other houses here, we will definitely use Sunny. And if anyone asks for a recommendation, we'll tell them to contact her.

Sunny was excellent from start to finish. I highly recommend her for newcomers/incomers. Her website helped us learn more about the Lake Norman area before we arrived and she spent a great deal of time showing us around as we decided what area we wanted to live in. If you are "particular" like I am, you'll end up spending a lot of time with your realtor looking for the right place so it's good to have one who is patient - and nice to be around like Sunny! We ended up purchasing a house on the lake in a crazy, complex short-sale with Sunny representing us. There was no opportunity to negotiate with due to the type of sale and it dragged out for a year before it was finally ours. Again, patience was her virtue! She has a relaxed, professional approach which makes you feel you are in good hands. You will never feel under pressure. She is highly experienced and it shows. I'd give her 10 stars if this website let me. Less ... More

Sunny was very professional as my agent. She went the extra mile for me during the entire house hunting adventure. I found her to be a very compassionate, caring person as well as wise in her dealings with me and the entire process of buying a home. She did not pressure me, but she made sure that my needs were met. I would choose her again as my agent and highly recommend her.

Sunny Yates has been a God-send! She helped us find our home, sweet, home!!!! From viewing several homes, giving guidance during the offer/counter-offer process and arranging all the necessary inspections etc. Sunny was there for us. She contacted certified professionals to make the necessary repairs and checked on the progress of them as well. Sunny is the best!

I have bought five houses and sold four houses over the course of my life, and Sunny Yates has been the best one that I have worked with by far. She communicates and negotiates extremely well and took the initiative to do many things to help sell my property. I needed someone who would be reliable since I live 90 miles away from the property that was being sold. My son had bought a house using Sunny's services and recommended her to me, so I give a tip of the hat to my son.

After 22 moves in 34 years as a military officer I've met a lot of realtors -- Sunny is hands down the best I have ever worked with. We communicated our needs and she delivered a precise list of potential homes, explained the differences in the neighborhoods, property tax rates, schools, shopping, commuting and traffic patterns etc. Her knowledge was superb and helped us narrow our pick list even further--- we chose our retirement home in 2-days....largely due to Sunny's expert advice! During the negotiation phase her analysis of recent comparable home sales helped us shave $60,000 off the asking price; and her knowledge of local mortgage brokers was instrumental in our ability to get a conventuals loan at a rate way below the National average. I highly recommend Sunny Yates as your next realtor! Less ... More

Sunny was incredible, she never stopped providing me with potential houses to view, and was always available when I went to view prospective properties. Her knowledge of the area made all the difference to me, as I was not familiar with the area at the time. Once I explained what I was looking for, she immediately found the right areas and properties worth viewing. I never had time to waste, and she always fitted into my schedule. Her Realtor knowledge and skills are first class; she was always giving me advice and help when I asked questions. I would definitely use her again if I need to buy or sell a house. Less ... More

Moving to a new state is never easy. Sunny Yates made our transition extremely easy. She was always make herself available when we were coming in from out of town to look at houses. She listened to everything we wanted and didn't want in a house and helped us find the perfect house. Sunny is an outstanding real estate agent. She is extremely knowledgable about homes and the area. She was very prompt in returning phone calls and emails. She went above and beyond what I expected of an agent. Every time friend or family would ask about our home search, I would always start by saying, "WE LOVE OUR AGENT." I highly recommend Sunny Yates as your real estate agent. Less ... More

We were very lucky to stumble upon Sunny. She worked very hard to find us a home that met our needs, which was not an easy task. She knew the areas very well and was very knowledgeable in all of the real estate processes. She is very honest and straight forward. She will work hard for you and values her clients. If we were ever in the market again I wouldn't hesitate to use Sunny again.

We found Sunny on Zillow after being in touch with 2 other agents who were sub par. We were looking to relocate but had limited time to find the right home. She went out of her way to give us her full attention for the week were visiting to look at homes. She ended up finding us the perfect home to fit all of our needs. She got us a great price and was able to do all of the negotiating and paperwork long distance until we were able to move out to close on our home. Sunny took into consideration the needs of the whole family making sure to include the kids in the experience. She was fabulous! We are happily in our home and are very thankful for her hard work. Thanks Sunny! Less ... More

We were moving into this neighborhood from SC and Sunny made everything happen. We had several kinks in the process and she did what had to be done to keep things on track. We are convinced that we wouldn't have been successful if it wasn't for Sunny. We highly recommend her!

Moving from Germany not knowing anybody or anything in Charlotte area Sunny has been amazingly helpful and wonderfully conscientious in all she has done for us not only professionally but also as a friend! I have never experienced a real estate agent being so knowledgeable and showing this great amount of expertise like Sunny since we have bought and sold several houses in the past in Europe. I would highly and warmly recommend Sunny Yates! She is highly professional and a great personality! Thank you for all you have done for us, Sunny! Less ... More

Sunny responded to my initial request within 10 minutes of my posting and her attentiveness and helpfulness never diminished. Being out of state, she identified and arranged surveys; contacted land record's POCs regarding permits and much much more! Being out of state, her assistance was invaluable. She continued to provide assistance after closing, when most realtor's attentiveness starts to wain... that did not happen. We have been very very pleased with Sunny 's performance.

I chose Sunny at random from a short list of real estate agents who had listed their services with Zillow. That lucky choice certainly rates as one of my best decisions in years. She has worked tirelessly for my wife and I as we looked to buy a home in the Lake Norman Area. She has outstanding knowledge of the area, and of appropriate pricing of the properties. Though our search continued over many months, Sunny always made herself available to us at our convenience. She was able to very quickly produce and deliver purchase contracts when time was of the essence. In short, I cannot imagine someone working harder for you, and with more devotion to finding the right home for you, than Sunny Yates. Less ... More

Over the past 30 years we have bought and sold numerous homes in several states due to employment relocations. We have also owned two vacation homes. Our experience with realtors is extensive. This is our first home purchase in North Carolina and we were VERY pleased with Sunny. In the course of our lives we have two favorite realtors and she is one of them (the other realtor resides in a different state). Sunny's real estate expertise is superb. She showed us homes on every part of Lake Norman and the depth of her knowledge was impressive. One important quality that Sunny possesses is that she is a DELIGHT to be with. We know that looking at homes and writing offers can be stressful and she made it FUN. After making our home purchase, we felt that we had also gained a good, trustworthy friend. Don't hesitate to call her. Less ... More

Sunny is very knowledgable in her area of expertise. She does her homework , and gets to know the buyer/seller thoroughly. She is very well-acquainted with the area and is an expert listing out the pros and cons of the place. She works proactively from buyer/seller side and tries to benefit her client to the extent possible. She is very co-operative, responsive, enthusiastic and highly efficient . I would definitely recommend her and I,myself would consult her again if needed.

Me and my wife were looking to purchase our first home. I clicked on the link for Sunny to call me and she responded right away, on a Sunday I might add. She listened to our needs and came up with some great homes. When negotiations began we came up with a number and she got that for us. If we ever had a question, and trust me I had plenty, she always made herself available to answer questions or meet us at the house to re-look at some things. If your looking for a home I highly recommend Sunny.

My family recently moved to the area with little knowledge of market conditions, school districts or crime rates. Sunny's experience and commitment comes through during the search process. Well versed in each community throughout Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson. One thing I noticed and appreciated immediately was she focused on our budget and needs; there was no wasted time showing or discussing properties outside my family?s goals. Understanding the market downturn, Sunny was aggressive when it came to testing the market by positioning our offers with not only local comps, but trends. My timeline was very tight during the relocation to Cornelius and Sunny was an advocate to keep me on schedule by clearly outlining what was needed when to complete closing. For as much that was going on in my life personally, Sunny was a huge help in keeping focus and timelines in place for a successful close. Our time was very limited for the search and I appreciated Sunny?s availability. Days, night and weekends we were in constant contact to review potential properties, visit/revisit our targeted properties all the way through the close process. Sunny is very responsible and committed to her clients. In the end, we found a great house at a great price point. I could not have asked for more. Thank you Sunny for assisting our family during our relocation to the Charlotte area. Less ... More

I can not say enough about our experience with Sunny. She represented us for the listing of our old home and purchasing of our new home. Selling and buying a home can be very stressful, however having an expert like Sunny made the transition pleasant. Her knowledge and negotiating skills saved us thousands. I have and will recommed her to all my family and friends. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.

I cannot say enough great things about Sunny Yates as a selling and buying agent. She was able to sell our home in 30 days and get 98% of the asking price, a feat in this market almost unheard of. Her negotiation skills on the buying side were stellar. I know Sunny has many clients, but during our buying/selling process we truly felt she was our exclusive agent. We will definitely use her again and thoroughly recommend her.

Sunny is very professional and knowledgable. She was wonderful about sending appropriate listings to us so that we could choose homes to view. Because we were not from the area, she was extremely helpful in educating us about the different aspects of lake living and the different neighborhoods and towns around the lake. She took extra time driving us to see places other than our choices just to give us a general overview of the area. Before the closing, she made sure that she was present when the different inspections happened. Again, since we do not live in the state, this was so helpful for us. At the closing, she stayed on top of every aspect of the legalities and made sure we understood each step. We have recommended her to friends from Michigan who are also impressed with her skills. Sunny exemplifies what every realtor should strive to be. We not only respect her but we most highly recommend her. Less ... More

Sunny Yates, in my opinion, is exception in her area of expertise. As a Broker, she employed the latest in technologies to assist my family in identifying properties that fit our specific criteria, with the right frequency and level of relevant data. Her knowledge of surrounding territories, communities, schools, traffic patterns etc. all added to her value proposition as an ideal Broker/Agent. Her expediant replies to questions and her availability is paramount to clients with little patience, and often less time to lose waiting on an agent. I would highly recommend Sunny to my friends and hope to have the pleasure of working with her again. Less ... More
