"I would give 6 stars to Shannon and her team.

They are prompt with their response to every question and inquiry. They helped us sell two properties, one in Atlantic beach and the other was in Emerald Isle."

Heba Elbarouni

We would highly recommend Jessica to anyone needing a professional, knowledgeable agent.

Jessica was always responsive to help and answer any questions, and offer help. She worked very hard to help us secure the best price possible during our experience.

Darryl Chrismon

"We worked with both Jaime and Shannon during house hunting.

They were both extremely professional, amazingly attentive, and always made us feel like their #1 client. After we put an offer on a home, they told us what we needed to know, and helped us find solutions, even when things (i.e. inspection) didn't go as planned. They were always quick to respond, answer their phones, and answer any questions we had. Working with them felt like we were working with friends, and they always had our best interest in hand. We couldn't be happier with Jaime and Shannon and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in the Morehead City, Beaufort, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Island region. They by far exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate to buy/sell with them again."

"My wife and I began looking for property at Emerald Isle with another Realtor.

That experience wasn't what we had hoped for so we started doing our own research on Zillow. My wife happened to inquire on a property that had Shannon's name attached to it and boy was that the best decision we made. Shannon was immediate in her responses to us. She would answer any questions we had as fast as we asked them. We had scheduled a few visits with Shannon to Emerald Isle with properties that we were interested in. She was extremely patient and worked with us to make sure we got the right fit and right area of the island. Once we had picked a property I wanted to look at other properties at the complex to make sure that the one we wanted to buy was the “One”. Shannon was very patient and understanding even though we had looked at another at the same complex. When it came time to put in an offer the process was very quick and easy. We gave her a price point and she worked with that to get the best price with the seller. My wife and I hadn't planned on making a purchase as quick as we did but after meeting Shannon and working with her, the process went much smoother than I had experienced with other purchases in the past. For those of you looking for a top notch Realtor who cares about you, the customer, I would recommend Shannon. I will recommend her to all my friends looking for property in the surrounding areas. My wife and I will once again seek out Shannon when we make our next purchase in the future. You won’t be disappointed in being represented by Shannon."


"Cookie has gone above and beyond out expectations with this move.

She gave us access to the website to look for homes, even though January was a long time from our desired relocation date. And when we couldn't find a reliable realtor, she got us a referral in a local office. When our home sold unexpectedly fast, Cookie really came through and lined up dozens of homes for when we arrived in the area. SHe worked tirelessly night and day with all her local contacts and we are less than 2 weeks from closing. I hope to never need to move again, but if I do, Cookie is my first and only phone call."

Teresa & Ronald D.

Jessica did a great job finding me a vacation home in Atlantic beach NC.

She got me one of the best deals ever. She is one of the most professional people I have ever dealt with. I recommend anyone to her. Great job and keep up the good work! Thanks for finding me the perfect beach house!

John Altuner

"Nicole was made for this industry!

My husband and I are in the process of buying a home and had already had a negative experience with a (different) Realtor. Nicole has made this process smooth and easy. I'm beyond thankful to have Nicole as our buyer's agent!"

Sara Coker

"Lorrie Munagorri stood by my husband and I for over six months looking at house after house all throughout Carteret County.

Lorrie was oh so patient; and quickly learned what we liked and what we didn’t. She paid attention to the details. She was quick to respond and made herself available at all times. We were set to close when Hurricane Florence hit, she ensured the home got the necessary repairs, and in fact throughout the storm she touched base with us to check on our welfare. She is simply amazing. Lorrie, unfortunately was put in a less desirable situation with another agent (at a different firm) and she handled herself with utmost professionalism and grace all the while fighting for our best interest. If you are looking to purchase a home or list one in this beautiful area we highly recommend Lorri Munagorri of Barefoot-Chandler & Associates."

Bonnie Morrison

"Shannon was wonderful to work with!

We were 5 hours from the beach and had to conduct most of our business through phone calls and emails. Shannon quickly responded to our questions and addressed all of our concerns. I felt that we truly had someone in our corner who had our best interest at heart . She made our dream of owning a home at the beach a reality!"


Jessica McManus was very attentive to my property, I had it listed with another real estate agent for two years with only one showing.

I hired Jessica and got 3 offers within 6 months and sold within the year. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone.

Cathy Danielle

"I purchased a home through Barefoot-Chandler Associates at the beginning of 2018.

Originally looking for a home on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, I heard about this realty company that had exceptional customer service and decided I would give them a try. Working with Lorrie Munagorri of Barefoot-Chandler, I was quickly impressed with her responsiveness and knowledge of an extensive area along the coast. Even when my search carried me somewhat 50 minutes inland, she always made time to show a home, be there for home inspection, and sit with home during repair that led from inspection. I couldn’t be happier with my home or the experience of working with such a professional staff. I will be a repeat customer if the need ever arises. If you can, ask for Lorrie!!!!"

Jody Carey

"New to the Morehead City area, Cookie East - Barefoot-Chandler & Associates played a critical role in helping us get to know the area, always took our feedback and listened to our needs, even though the changed quite often!

!!! Cookie is a gem! Working with us whenever we requested, we found our forever house in Beaufort. Not only is Cookie East - Barefoot-Chandler & Associates a great and knowledgeable Realtor, she has a heart of gold and is marvelous inside and out!"

Eileen M.

"We have worked with many real estate agents in the buying and selling of our homes over the last 30 years.

Nicole Knowlton has been the most pleasant and professional Realtor that we have ever worked with."

Guy & Kathy Yeager

"This year my husband and I decided to set our goals and start looking for house in our price range, we were previously renting and our landlord knew Cookie East so we decided to contact her and get the ball rolling.

..I have never met someone so dedicated to helping her clients, any questions or concerns she was always there no matter what time of day it was. As first time home buyers it's like going head on with a bull, you're not really sure if you should stand firm or just run away!... but with that being said cookie made us feel so comfortable with any thing we had to ask because we were unsure about the whole buying process. We wouldn't recommend anyone besides Cookie East. She's not only our realtor but now has become our Friend. Thank you again Cookie you are absolutely the best!"

Jessica S.

"Jessica was the most delightful person to work with and very responsive.

She will work endlessly to make your home buying experience fun and exciting! I recommend her highly and you will not be disappointed!!!!"

Ray Toler

"My husband and I cannot thank these ladies enough for the work that they put in to help us find and purchase our perfect home.

From relentlessly searching until they found what fit our specifications to immediate responses to every question or concern we had, these women were Awesome! They even predicted some concerns and helped us resolve issues that came up during the purchasing process. My husband and I were down to the wire as we found our home one month before having our second child. These ladies worked around the clock to ensure that we were moved in prior to her birth. If you're looking for experienced realtors who know the area and will make miracles happen, you definitely want to work with Barefoot-Chandler & Associates. My family and I are so glad that we did!"


"Jamie handled everything from start to finish with patience, understanding, and professionalism!

Very prompt with feedback, questions, and answers... she's second to none in our opinion. Highly-highly recommended Jamie & Shannon... they make an awesome team!" Sincerely, Gary and Suzanne Allran


Jessica went out her way to help in my search for a home.

Even prior to a buyers contract, she made herself available to provide services as they pertained to my request. While being out of the area during my home search, she made sure a representative was available to me. While I was undecided on homes, she continued to negotiate with sellers in my area of inquiry. Jessica never once mentioned the number of miles she had to travel while making herself available to my requests. While at the time of this review I have yet to secure a home and this is entirely due to my indecisiveness on a location. Jessica showed me homes that fit my needs and budget. Her responsiveness and knowledge of the area make her my choice for a representative and highly recommend her yours.

Mike Marshall

Thomas Cunningham

"I have limited experience in the world of Real Estate.

From day one after speaking with Cookie, I was immediately put at ease. Her knowledge of the real estate business and of the Crystal Coast area was comforting to me. She excels in the area of communication both telephonically and via email. Each time I called her or emailed her, she responded immediately. If I had to re-do this process again the future, Cookie wold be the very first person I call!"

Jesse Rivera recommends Kim Reinike Realtor, Barefoot-Chandler and Associates.

14 hrs · Kim was absolutely amazing when it came to buying our new home in NC. It was a large transition from PA but she made us feel safe and confident about our decision. She wasn’t pushy one bit and new the local area very well. We’ve now lived in our home for 7 months and couldn’t be happier with it and the location. Thank you so so much Kim. We are very happy that we chose you as our realtor.

Jesse Rivera and Kristi Sholl

"We spent about 7 months looking for a beach condo with Jamie.

She hung with us through numerous offers that were rejected. During several trips to the coast from about 10 hours away, she put herself at our disposal when needed. Her expertise during the contract writing and negotiation process was invaluable. We've worked with about a dozen different realtors during the past 30 years and found the experience with Jamie and Shannon to be one of the best. We would recommend them to our friends."


Kim Reinike was our real estate agent and she was absolutely wonderful :) She went above and beyond for us and we truly appreciate her.

Not only was she a great agent, she became a friend :)

Jesse Rivera and Kristi Sholl

"Shannon was extremely knowledgeable.

We purchased a second home at Emerald Isle, NC in March 2015. Shannon made the process very easy. We would/will recommend Shannon to anyone in need of a realtor whether they are selling their home or looking to buy a home at the Crystal Coast. My husband and I purchased our beach home even sooner than what we had originally anticipated we would, mainly because of Shannon making the process so easy and leaving no stone unturned. She was always attentive and on top of all questions/issues during our search process. You will not be disappointed if you choose Shannon Wilson-Chandler as your realtor. "


"Oh, wow!

Jaime & Shannon are great to work with. Their philosophy is to make home-buying and selling as easy as possible. They even go out of their way to provide services that I, as a buyer, had never thought of! I could not have asked for better service, better results, and better people to work with. Yay, Jaime and Shannon!"


"I highly recommend Barefoot-Chandler and Associates to sell your house and pick their brain for what to look for in buying a house.

Shannon and Jamie were upfront about staging a house and sellability of the house. Shannon and Jamie know the area for this assessment, selling periods and know how to advertise in various media. Shannon and Jamie made sure we understood every aspect of the sell. They respectfully arranged showing the house and closing with legal services close by for an elder couple who has little mobility. Their down home gentle touch and innovative advertisement and repectful professional attitude made the selling of a home easy."


"I truly enjoyed working with Jaime.

We trusted each other enough to actually list above her initial recommendation and it paid off for us both. She knew exactly how to market the property buy capturing drone footage from overhead and did an excellent job selecting a photographer that made the house shine."


"I was very pleased with the help provided by Barefoot-Chandler.

Jaime and Shannon never failed to respond to my messages and calls. They were always ready to help. I would recommend them without reservation."

Joann Beitz

"My husband and I have found Cookie East to be very knowledgeable and very helpful in finding us the perfect house.

We would recommend her with enthusiasm to anyone buying or selling a home. #Excellent Realtor!"

Barbara & Harold P.

Jessica was very accommodating and always went out of her to make sure everything was taken care of throughout my home purchase.

I will definitely be using her again in the future.

Ashley Porter

"My husband and I moved to the coast in Sept 2017.

Kim Reinike with Barefoot and Chandler was our real estate agent. She helped us find a home and we closed in Dec. 2017. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She was easy to talk to, and really found us our dream home. We have dealt with realtors in the past, but she is the best. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. We not only got a great home we made a new friend." Harold & Becky Medlin.

Harold and Becky

"I'm a first time home buyer and needed all sorts of help with the ins and outs of the entire process.

Cookie was by my side the entire journey and was extremely helpful. She showed me a few homes, got me hooked up on her website, and immediately picked up on what I liked and didn't like. She began hitting the pavement hard to find me the perfect home. As soon as I decided to make an offer on a home then Cookie's other skills really came into play. She helped me with negotiations and was always looking out for my best interest. Cookie also helped me stay on task as we had a short window to complete the buying process and she helped me check the requirements off the list with excellent guidance and always brought things to my attention that I otherwise would have overlooked. We got the job done in an extremely timely manner and I couldn't be more satisfied with all the help Cookie provided. Hopefully I won't be in need of any realty services any time soon but Cookie will definitely be my first call if I do!"

Trey T.

"We could not be more pleased with our experience.

Everything went smoothly and in a timely manner. We have worked with agents in several states on different properties, but none compared to the ease of this sale. We had not one but two offers within a week! Amazing experience! Thanks again!"

"Shannon is an exceptional person in all respects.

She is intelligent, enthusiastic, reliable, self-motivated, and a true professional. We worked together for many years and she always proved herself to be a top producer. Shannon would be an exceptional asset to any company, and I highly recommend her."

Her intervention and attention to detail helped to achieve a smooth selection and closing of my home. Knowledgeable, friendly and efficient - what more could you ask for!

Kathy Freeman

"Cookie is a pleasure to work with and surpassed all of our expectations.

She is there when you need her, and she also has a huge network of great professionals for purchasing a home (mortgage brokers, inspectors, etc.). She is very detailed and great at negotiating. I am so thankful I have her to guide us through the process of finding and buying a home! I would recommend Cookie to anybody without any hesitation!"

Sarah Katherine

"We give Kim Reinike a well-deserved 5 stars!

!!! Kim made our dream of moving to the beach a "dream come true." She was there for us from day 1. kim's diligence and dedication exceeded our expectations and desires. Not only was she professional and went out of her way for us numerous times, she was available anytime day and night to answer questions and ease our minds in a sometime stressful situation. We definately could not have done this without her. If you are in need of an expert in real estate to sell or buy a house she is your girl! Kim Reinike is our real estate agent and now a dear friend for life!" Neal and Jaime Emerald Isle, NC

Jaime and Neal

"Working with Cookie exceeded All my expectations.

As a first-time home buyer I was not familiar with all the ins and outs of purchasing a home. Right away Cookie was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with me and my wife to answer whatever questions we had. She also encouraged us to shop around for our mortgage and referred us to a wonderful mortgage agent at Atlantic Bay Mortgage. Cookie was willing to meet us whenever we were available before work, after work, or weekends, she was wonderful. She set us up with everyone we needed to do inspections and all other due diligence checks. She negotiated a great price and then re-negotiated during the due diligence for an even better deal! I highly recommend Cookie East."
