Recommendations/ Reviews

I worked with Allen Lyles as my broker for the listing and sale of my home in Durham and for the
purchase of my new residence in Chapel Hill. Allen’s tax, legal and finance expertise from his prior
professional experiences as a CFO and CPA often came into play as we had many serious repairs
to trouble shoot and resolve; Allen helped me manage the bid process to ensure I understood the real issues and true costs to evaluate the investment and was extremely timely and organized which was helpful as my sale was tied to a short timeline.

His style is more consultative or advisory in nature; he preferred to work as partners rather than, as a traditional sales person and I never felt pressured to make any decision during the process. Although my sale has ended, Allen has continued to check in periodically to ensure I am satisfied with the house and with his services. I highly recommend Allen Lyles’s services as a real estate broker for the purchase or sale of a home and I hope to work with him again.



  I met Mr. Lyles through Mrs. Sandy Lange who had handled the original purchase of the Estate property I was trying to sale. As Administrator of the Estate, I discussed questions, options, and needs regarding the sale of the Estate property with Mr. Lyles. Mr. Lyles was very thorough in exploring, outlining, and talking through various advantages and disadvantages for the property sale process. He was able to do this because he listened to what the needs were and he matched options based on those needs. The sale process was reasonably quick, efficient, and professionally completed during each step.

  Throughout the entire process I felt he and Mrs. Lange were representing the needs of the Estate and working with me to secure the best possible sale solutions. I appreciated the candor, integrity, knowledge, and professionalism with which the entire transaction was handled.
