We worked with real estate agent John Mausteller when buying our home and I must say, he is the best agent we have ever worked with! We have bought and sold 4 other homes but working with John was very different. He worked so hard to market our home, was always available and we truly felt like he cared! I highly recommend John for your real estate needs!

Working with John was nothing but smooth sailing! He was more of a partner than anything when it came to purchasing our Outer Banks vacation home in Kitty Hawk. With his help, information, professionalism, and going above and beyond, we were able to purchase while living in Pennsylvania without seeing the house until the day we closed. He listened to what we were looking for and did a ton of work to make sure we had plenty of good information and video walkthroughs to go by. John made us comfortable and confident in our purchase. There is no one else that we will be using when buying or selling a house in the Outer Banks. I would recommend John to everyone who is looking for an easy process. Thank you again and again, John!

John Mausteller was an absolute pleasure to work with for our first purchase in Nags Head in the Outer Banks! John helped my wife and I through the home buying process since this was our first time. Being that we were purchasing from out of state he went above and beyond to recommend local vendors & be on site when we could not be. What I admire most about John is his friendly demeanor that puts you at ease & his timely responsiveness. I wholeheartedly recommend working with John and the Mausteller team if you are thinking about purchasing a home/rental property in the OBX! He negotiated on our behalf and we were able to purchase for under asking. I look forward to working with John again!
