Karreem Bethea (Buyer) Fayetteville NC
I HAVE WORKED WITH IRENA FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS, AND SHE HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT HELP TO ME WITH GETTING THE PRE-APPROVAL AND THEN THE LOAN, CLOSING ATTORNEY, AND SO ON. I HAD TO DRIVE 2 HOURS TO COME TO FAYETTEVILLE AND EVERY TIME WHEN WE HAD AN INSPECTION SHE HAD EVERYTHING COVERED. SHE IS THE BEST AT WHAT SHE DOES. I AM SO SO HAPPY I HAD HER ON MY SIDE, SHE NEVER GAVE IT UP EVEN WHEN THE TIME WAS TOUGH. I JUST WANT TO THANK HER OVER AND OVER AGAIN FOR ALL OF HER HELP AND UNDERSTANDING. I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY FIRST HOUSE AND I WOULD REFER EVERYONE TO HER- ALL OF MY FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND EVERYBODY OUT THERE LOOKING FOR A EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL AND DEDICATED BROKER. THAT'S IRENA
Ian and Ruth Patrick (Buyer) New Construction -- Fayetteville NC 28311
Irena Stewart has done an exceptional job in working with my wife and me to build and move into our first home. The first REALTOR we signed up with was concerned only with his commission. And how much he could convince us to buy a house that was way off our budget. The quality of our home, and the value of our money came second. We decided to cancel our contract with him, and work with Irena instead. We immediately saw the difference in the amount of effort she put into taking care of us. Irena was more than willing to show us several houses, and then work with a builder when we changed our mind and decided to build a home. Our friends were surpirsed to hear of all the extras that Irena was able to get us that they had not. Irena gave us frequent updates about the progress of the building, and kept in contact with the builder to make sure that the house will be finished on time. Now we have a wonderful home, and for the price we paid we have much more to show for it- several improvements that would have cost us fortune but didn't. My wife and I would recommend Irena as a REALTOR, knowing that she will work hard to make buying or building a house the best of experience that it can be.
Roberto Sealey (Seller) Fayetteville, NC
From the moment you are face to face with Irena Stewart there's a warm welcoming feeling. I hired Irena Stewart to sell my house and the entire time she performed an outstanding job. Not only did she conduct an Open House, she uttered on different ideas to make the house appealing to potential buyers. In less than 2 weeks, 10 potential buyers previewed the house. Three weeks later the house was sold. Unbelievable, I could've never done it without Mrs Stewart. She personified hard word, sincerity, confidence and dedication. If you are looking for someone who's a professional to the highest degree and provides great customer service. Irena Stewart is the Broker for all your real estate needs. I'd like to thank her and Weichert, Realtors for a job well done. I'm looking forward to continuing doing business with them
Marsha & Michael LaFontaine (Seller) Fayetteville, NC
I called Irena one day and asked her about a house she had listed back in October. She gave me the information and I gave her my e-mail address for anything else that came up. After about a month I called her out of the blue, and she instantly remembered who I was and what we had talked about. We then started corresponding weekly and sometimes daily.
One day after looking for a house for several months, which she never tired of answering my questions or gathering more information for us, we talked about listing my current home for sale. I told her I wanted to list it myself to see if I had any luck. Well I didn't. Irena never pressured us about listing our home, she was very supportive about everything. She told us she would do everything within her power to sell our house and to get the price we wanted. So, we listed the house with her. During this time she contacted all our neighbors and really the whole neighborhood and told them we were going to sell. She told us she would walk and knock on every door in the neighborhood if she had to put the word out. We were very pleased with everything about Irena. She did everything she said and sold our house within six weeks. After the sale, she gave us a huge basket to celebrate the sale.
We were so pleased with Irena. She helped us negotiate the building and purchasing of our new home. She will be invited to our house warming party!

My husband and I recently purchsed our first home and wanted to thank and recommend Irena for her outstanding professionalism and customer satisfaction. She made the entire process amazingly easy for us.

As first-time home buyers, we want to thank you for all the help you gave us. Irena, you were very dedicated and professional on the job; in addition, you were very helpful and patient. You explained the whole process in detail. We appreciate you helped us find the perfect mortgage lender. We are so pleased with everything you did for us and what we love about you is that you were never thinking about commission and you never complained about the million times we called you asking questions. Also you made us feel we were your friends instead of your clients, and thanks to you everything went great. We love our new home. We would recommend you to everyone and we would like to say you are the best Realtor we could ever find- very knowledgeable, understanding, dedicated and professional. Please accept our sincerest gratitude for the superior job you did for us.
Carmen Evans (First-time buyer) Raeford, NC
Buying a home for the first time can be intimidating. When I first began my search, I would always get bombarded by real estate agents wanting my business. They were a little too pushy for me. I needed someone to really take their time, crawl (not walk) me through the process, and be available for the plethora of questions that come with buying a new home. I found this in Irena. I can’t say enough about how WONDERFUL she was with getting me through the process. She was very knowledgeable and if there was something she wasn’t sure about she found the answer. If I asked her a question and needed information she would get it to me almost instantly. I was very particular about what I wanted and she was patient as I asked her to show me MANY houses in Hope Mills, Fayetteville, and Raeford. She was careful to stay within the price range that I gave her. She never tried to “oversell” to get a higher commission. She has an amazing eye for detail and a sharp memory. She focuses on EXACTLY what you say you want as a buyer. With Irena, I felt secure with the process from the beginning to the end. She ALWAYS has her client’s best interest in mind. I can’t say enough about her. You know you have an AWESOME agent when she is so attentive to the process that you feel like you are her only customer. Thank you Irena!!!
