Read what people are saying about us.

"Bo was hired to list and sell a property for my company. The process was easy and very professional. Property listed on April 1st and closed 10 days later to a cash buyer. Very pleased with the interaction and will be using Bo Allen in the future.

Jack Bender Construction

Bo-I want to thank you for your help in getting our house sold in Trent Woods. Besides being aware of the market, you were able to provide me with contacts to do the repairs that I needed to make. This saved us money on the repairs and we saved money with the reduced commission your firm charged. In the future, if we ever need to sell/buy real estate in the New Bern market, you will be the first broker we call.

"Bo has been a valuable asset to my firm, House Auction Company, Inc. over the past few years. He is a state-certified residential appraiser and has been independently contracted by our company and our clients numerous times to provide various property valuations and market analysis.  His local knowledge, thoroughness, and ability to explain and educate surpass his local competition.  His conclusions are highly regarded and an invaluable tool in the decision-making sale process.  His company, Coastal Carolina Appraisals, has become our preferred appraisal and consultant firm for our eastern, North Carolina market.”

"I have engaged Mr. Allen on several occasions to perform appraisals in divorce litigation.  He has always been prompt for appointments, courteous and professional with clients and opposing parties, and has provided detailed reports that have proven reliable and have been accepted by opposing counsel and by the courts as expert evidence.  I highly recommend Mr. Allen and certainly intend to employ him again in the future." 

Steven N. Long

Attorney, New Bern, NC

"Our timeline was tight, and the responsibilities placed before CCA were numerous, but the process from beginning to end after contracting with CCA was smooth." "Based on my experience with CCA throughout the 2017 reappraisal, I believe they are a reputable and upstanding company willing and able to assist counties in their reappraisal needs."

"You know what...YOU ARE THE BEST!!! After I had emailed you, I went to look, and I said "He indeed is a man of his word" LOL Thanks so much Bo! Have a great rest of the day. It's a pleasure to work with you!”

"I am a Certified Residential Appraiser and Licensed Real Estate Broker, active in both professions in the Wilmington area.  I take in my work and appreciate fellow real estate professionals who do the same. My family owns a house in Morehead City. Shortly after the latest revaluation, we received a letter from the Carteret County Tax Department indicating the new tax value they assigned to the property.  We strongly disagreed with the valuation.  Since Carteret County is outside my geographic area of expertise, I needed to find a local professional to assist us with an appraisal.  After contacting several appraiser peers for recommendations, Mr. Allen 's name was mentioned more than once. Upon engagement, Mr. Allen demonstrated his competence, not just in appraisal theory but Ad Valorem taxation and the appeal process as well.  Due to his appraisal, we were able to settle our dispute with the Tax Department for considerably less and save a trip to the NC Property Tax Commission in Raleigh.  I would highly recommend his services for real property tax appeal.”

“I recently purchased a home in River Bend.  When I was thinking about buying a house, the process became scary.  I called Bo Allen whom I have known for several years to seek his guidance and advice.  Bo is very knowledgeable about real estate and knows the area well.  He is professional, very thorough, and made the buying of a house a lot less stressful for this senior citizen…. Thank you, Bo, for all your help!!”

Linda Toler

Homeowner, New Bern, NC

“When I needed appraisals on vacation rental properties in Carteret County, Mr. Allen was highly recommended, and he responded quickly and professionally.”

James Marrow

Attorney, Tarboro, NC

“As the Team Leader/CEO of Keller Williams Realty of New Bern, NC I met Bo Allen in 2013 at a NRRAR training event held at the board office.  His personality and experience make him easy to work with and someone you look forward to speaking with.  I now operate CRI Properties in Jacksonville, NC as a Sales Manager/REALTOR/Broker and invited Bo to come and do an “Appraisal 101” class for all my agents. He spent 90 minutes with us and will be coming back quarterly to share any changes in the industry and answer any questions we have.  There needs to more people like Bo in the industry."

John Hoopes

Sales Manager/Realtor at CRI Properties, Jacksonville, NC

"Complete County Assessments defended their work before our Board of Equalization and Review and continue to show dedicated support to my office even after the project.  Bo Allen and Chris Mashburn met with us recently to review a pending appeal and provided us with some helpful market data."

Dustin Shehane

"If anyone is interested in buying or selling a home, I recommend Curtis Gatlin.  He works around the clock and is one of the nicest persons I know.  A former educator and principal, he knows the area and I wish him great success!"

Donna Joyner

"I am deeply satisfied with Curtis!  He is definitely on his game.  I was ready to purchase a house from CCA Real Estate but the property didn't allow Alpacas. Curtis investigated thoroughly and found this out for me.  I would give Curtis a 10 for his efforts and professional follow up."
