Tell Us Your Story

Lia was the absolute best!

She helped us buy our first home, and then helped us sell our home a few years later. As first-time home buyers, Lia went above and beyond to make the buying process as simple and stress free as possible. Her upbeat, positive and knowledgeable personality makes it a pleasure to work with her! When it came time for us to sell our home as we outgrew it, she made selling it very stress free. She was always available right away to answer the many questions we had for her, and was happy to help us every single step of the way. She is very trustworthy and makes every step of the way from buying to selling as smooth as possible. We highly recommend her, she is the best out there! We can’t wait to buy our second home with her again this year! Thank you, Lia !!!

Lia was enthusiastically recommended to us by my coworker in the fall of 2017 after we learned we’d be moving to Charlotte for my husband’s new job.

Lia gave us fantastic advice about what we needed to fix to sell our house, how to stage it, and hired a phenomenal photographer to show off the property. She was also incredibly flexible when our move date kept getting pushed every month. In the end, we sold our house in 2 days with 8 offers, most above asking price. Her genuinely kind demeanor, direct communication style, and knowledge of the Raleigh market made the process feel easy. When we received word we’d be moving back to Raleigh a year later, we contacted Lia immediately to begin our house hunt. She helped us search remotely - giving us FaceTime tours of homes we were interested in - then negotiated a competitive offer on a house in our dream neighborhood. To sum it up, you can put your trust in Lia. We just love her

Lia was a wonderful realtor to deal with, I can recommend her to anyone.

Lia is prompt friendly knowledgeable and a hard worker. I wouldn't use anyone else. Lia would answer all emails and texts immediately, When we met her for the first time she already had a working knowledge of our subdivision and comp values. Her advice regarding cost per square foot was spot on.

G Bourdon

Lia was so amazing thru the process of selling our home.

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She really knows her stuff and makes sure that you get everything you want and need during the selling process. And it doesn’t hurt that she was able to sell our house faster amd for more money than anyone else in our neighborhood.

Lia is a very hard-working/knowledgeable/helpful agent.

She is an extremely good listener/communicator/advocate, as well. During the purchase process, I felt confident with her at the helm. The result was that our carefully crafted offer was accepted, the entire process went smoothly, and I am now living in my dream home. I would love to work with Lia again, and would definitely recommend her to friends/family.

I would HIGHLY recommend Lia if you are looking to buy or sell your home.

Lia helped my family with both buying a new home and selling our existing. We found Lia online by chance and it was truly a blessing that she responded first. Our prior experience with buying/selling has been nothing but stressful in the past, that was not our experience with Lia. She makes the entire process from start to finish feel effortless. She is on top of everything and gives you the heads up on the next step so there are no surprises. Her knowledge of the area was extremely helpful when picking a new area to live. She identifies important aspects to consider for re-sale. She has the BEST connections (for inspections, carpentry, financing, legal) which is so important when going through either the process of buying and/or selling. When we put our house on the market we went with Lia's advice on what price point to list our home and we not only got an offer the first day, but got multiple offers and sold our house in 4 days (more than we asked for). She always makes herself available to you. I cannot say enough good things about Lia. Lia is absolutely the best realtor I have met and would never work with anyone else.

S. Yocum

Lia was very knowledgeable no matter what town or county we looked at houses.

Lia knew or was able to find out the local taxes in that county and gave expert advice on the affordability of an area. Lia also proved that not all companies had terrible agents. Lia is one of the best agents I have ever met!

Dale Blasiman

My husband and I had a great experience with Lia as first time home buyers.

Her knowledge of the market and the process made us feel like we were in good hands. The house we ended up buying was one I originally rejected but Lia suggested we still take a look knowing our interests. Thank goodness!! Thanks for everything Lia!

C Brennan

I'm a first time home buyer (new construction) who had an excellent experience working with Lia.

She's a professional and passionate realtor who truly cares about her home buyers. Here are some highlights from my experience: Communication/Responsiveness: Lia ALWAYS got back to me within 24 hours, and usually it was within 1 hour. It didn't matter whether it was the middle of the day, or on a Sunday evening, she was on top of things. She also was willing to make last minute changes to her schedule to accommodate the builder's schedule. Process Expertise: Lia was able to explain every step of the process so that I really didn't have to do much thinking! She scheduled meetings with the builder, coordinated with the lender, followed up with the closing attorney. Follow Lia's instructions and you'll be set. Negotiation Skills: The builder tried to delay the closing date more than I was willing to do so, and Lia skillfully negotiated a date that worked for both parties. The price wasn't negotiable because this was a new construction. Local Knowledge: I had picked out the home before contacting Lia, but she was able to provide insight that helped me solidify my decision. Final Note: I had been traveling for work on the day of the pre-settlement walk-through, so Lia went in my stead. She took notes and pictures, and sent them to me so I could stay in the know. Talk about customer service!

Michael Oakes

Truly had a magical experience with Lia , she is one of the most positive people I have ever met.

She is always on time and greeting you with a smile and so excited to help you on the journey of finding your dream home. After a few showings she had our taste down pat and knew exactly what we were looking for. Incredibly honest and truly an incredible teacher during the whole process. She is always quick to respond no matter the day or time. You can tell that it is true passion of hers and would recommend her whole heartedly to anyone looking to buy a home !!! So pleased with our new home and we couldn’t have done without her guidance and patience !!

Lia is a dream to work with.

She is extremely knowledgeable. She helped us find the ideal house for our family. She assisted with the negotiation and helped in ways I couldn't have imagined. She also has extraordinary resources for every kind of service from septic service to HVAC, arborists, radon professionals and more. I cannot imagine this very important transaction without Lia providing assistance every step of the way. We have several months before our new home will be ready for move in. When it is, we will be sure to use Lia as our selling agent. She sold our neighbor's home in a single day! Working with Lia is an absolute pleasure. She is honest, very well-informed, kind and dependable. I give her my absolute highest recommendation

Kile Law

Not once but TWICE!

We have sold two homes in the Triangle area and both times we have used Lia. Her knowledge, expertise, professionalism, attention to detail and her willingness to help makes her one of the best agents in the business. We have experience with other agents and they pale in comparison to Lia; if we could have brought her with us to our new location; we definitely would have! If you are looking for an agent; look no further!

Lia Watson is truly a phenomenal real estate agent.

My wife and I were moving to North Carolina from states away. That in itself seemed like a lot to us, but when you add 5 children to that scenario we expected a lot worse. Then we were introduced to Lia, and she put all of our worries to rest. Lia is a very involved agent who knows real estate inside and out. She takes the time to make sure you understand the process at eShe always made herself available to us for any questions that we might have had, creating home searches in various areas that interested us and cleared her schedule for when we came in town to view our favorite homes. She played such an instrumental role in our home buying process and has made it a memorable experience for our family. If you are looking to purchase a home, then you definitely want Lia on your team! Thank you Lia!!!

We had an amazing experience working with Lia Watson as first-time homebuyers over the course of 7 months (new construction).

She is knowledgeable of the local real estate market and helped us find exactly what we were looking for in our price range.

It was a pleasure having Lia represent us in the home-buying process, and we highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home

Z Buyer

As a first time home buyer, it can be very stressful and daunting.

Lia was a pure gem! She talked us through everything so that we understood, was quick to respond, and always available for our busy lives and schedule. She made the process a breeze for us.

Marie M

Lia is a great resources for all things related to selling/buying a home.

I have worked with her multiple times over the past five years (which says a lot in itself). In addition to the knowledge she brings to the table Lia is just a great person. She is kind, responsive and extremely patient with her clients. If you are buying or selling a home I would highly recommend Lia!

Jim Buyer

After trying to sell my house off and on for the past 5 years I listed with Lia.

I was afraid I had waited too late in the 2016 selling season to get anything done. Lia recommended some minor "fixes" to my 10 year old house, but was always aware of my budget. She had a great team from the photographer to her rolodex of contractors. Lia was very responsive to my questions and steered me through the listing. We had a number of showings within the first few weeks and received an offer! At the same time, she was helping me find my new home. Lia is a a great resource and just a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!


Lia was extremely professional and ethical.

She always responded to questions or concerns in a very timely manner. It was indeed a pleasure working with Lia as she was there for us every step of the way. We embarked upon a dream to sell and buy in another state which was quite stressfull; however, she made the process easy, esplaining every detail. We could not have done it without her! We are so very grateful!

L Trixtter

We met Lia in 2014, when we were looking for a house to buy.

We were working with another agent, and it just wasn't working out. I cannot remember how we got it touch with Lia, but from the beginning it worked well, and we were very happy with the process of buying a house with her. We then decided to work with her to sell our old house, and she did an excellent job with that as well. Her strengths are: honesty, forthrightness, excellent relationships with all kinds of tradespeople and other people in the industry, excellent judgement, and broad knowledge about residential real estate. She has been incredibly hard-working and patient. We would work with her again in a heart beat. And enjoy it.


Lia came recommended from a coworker.

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I definitely needed some of the extra education and explanations that she took the time to provide. Her knowledge of the market and understanding of what motivates buyers helped our offers to succeed within our budget and timeframe, which were crucial for us. I was also impressed with Lia's ability to quickly handle questions and concerns. Her ability to quickly respond to all parties involved in the process was truly impressive

"I had to buy a house in short order when I landed a new job. Lia was there every step of the way guiding me through the process, managing the details, and answering all of my questions whenever I had them. She was great about presenting the pros and cons with facts and experience so I could make informed decisions. She identified issues I never saw during the 2 walk throughs of my home, and help me navigate effectively when my closing was delayed. I truly felt like I had an advocate in Lia - someone who was on my side and cared about more than just getting a commission."

"I can't begin to describe how wonderful it was to work with Lia! From the beginning to the end she was more than responsive, transparent, informative and supportive. She was always there whenever we needed her and she continuously kept in communication with us as well as the builders or any prospective neighborhoods/contacts.Working with her was an absolute pleasure and we couldn't have done it without her. Being out of state, she was our eyes and ears when we couldn't be in person and was such an advocate for us every step of the way. Lia gave us the peace of mind and confidence during each step of the way that we needed and for that we were so grateful!"

"Lia went far and beyond to help me with preparing to sell and helping to stage. She was comparing my home with others near me so that we could be sure we were asking a good price for it. I am so grateful that I had Lia to help me. She has a great go get her type of personality. She negotiated to make sure that I got what I needed to help me purchase my own home when I needed to move. My house sold in two days for a lot more than the asking price was. She is one of the best! I highly recommend her to anyone who is ready to sell their home."
