Rodney F. Seller

Phyllis is a true Pro. Knows the area and the market. You can't go wrong will her. The deal will get done with Dunn!

Dana B. Buyer

Our home search with Phyllis was excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and all facets of the real estate process. Phyllis worked very hard for us (almost 2 years) and answered all the many questions we threw at her at any time of the day! She was always honest with us and extremely patient. She spent many hours/weekends with us, always assuring us that we would "find the right one". And we did! We always felt like a valued client and friend and we still keep contact with her today:)

Pat B Seller

Crystal was very helpful with any of my concerns. She always answered my questions. Crystal worked very hard for me and got me a better offer than I was expecting.

Freebird C. Seller

Phyllis cares about your needs and wants. Why would you hire any professional that doesn't put you first ? Phyllis puts you first. She is very patient, she really knows how to work with what you have to stage. We spent very little staging but got very good results. She will tell where you do need to freshen up and where whats existing is fine. This saves you money and the buyer may change it anyway. We used Phyllis twice, she was our buyers agent in 2002 and in 2021 as the sellers agent. I would gladly recommend her whether your buying or selling. A good realtor in my opinion knows what is reasonable and fair. Good advice can keep you from walking away from a deal that's in your best interest. We had no regrets as a buyer or seller. Phyllis works hard for you, looks out for your interest and knows people who can get the fix up you want done for a reasonable price and with quality work. You will not make a mistake if you choose to work with Phyllis.

Mark has not only been a friend of our family for a long time but he has also been a valuable resource in serving our real estate needs. He is very personable and professional; providing us with market insight and advice. I would recommend Mark to my friends and family with no hesitation. He is always there to answer our questions and address any concerns as well as following up on a continual basis.

Vickie P Seller

Adrian Lash helped us sell our lake home. She was always prepared and very thorough. Adrian was truly a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond her responsibilities in many ways to help us with our sell. If you are looking to buy or to sell, I highly recommend that you call Adrian!

Matthew W. Buyer

Mark did a great job for us. He represented us well. He fought for us. He did everything in his power to make sure we got the home we wanted. We had several ups and downs through the selling and buying process but Mark was constant throughout it, which is the sign of a seasoned and experienced realtor. I would highly recommend Mark McRae. A top notch realtor for Stanly County and our entire region.

Carol B. Buyer

Phyllis Kimrey-Dunn is a Cracker Jack agent. She worked tirelessly to find us a dream lake home. She helped us accomplish all those little (and not so little) tasks associated with buying our house. She was unfailingly cheerful and patient with a couple of hard-to-please customers. She became my first new friend in this area.


I can not express to anyone reading this how much I appreciated Mark and how much my wife and I would recommend him to anyone thinking of purchasing a home in the Lake Tillery area. Mark guided us through the process with ease, patience and expertise. A house we werre buyimg fell through due to a bad inspection and Mark did not even blink. He found us another home, a better home and we closed on it last week. He knows everyone and every property in the area. He knows every neighborhood. He spent time to really understand our needs and what we were looking for. Through the process of buying, Mark became a friend. If you choose another realtor in the Tillery area, you are wasting your time.

Bryan & Nikki C. Seller

Great Company! Our Realtor, Adrian did a great job keeping us informed during the whole process of selling our home. Definitely the go to place for buying and selling homes in the Lake Tillery area.

Rick W. Buyer

Adrian was the best to work with. She did a fantastic job and helped us through every step of the process. I would highly recommend her@

Becky & Ron L. Seller

We would recommend McRae Properties without reservation to anyone looking for a professional real estate team to sell their property. Phyllis Kimrey and Adrian Lash helped us sell the home we had lived in for over 35 years, and it was obvious from our first meeting with them that we had found the right team to list our home. They spent time walking through and becoming familiar with our home and then discussed how the process would work from beginning to end -- comps, listing price, "coming soon", social media, professional photos, showings, staging, etc. As a result, our home sold quickly and with very little stress. The communication with Phyllis and Adrian was outstanding. They were always available to answer any questions we had and regularly updated us throughout the entire process. It was such a pleasure working with Phyllis, Adrian, and McRae Properties, and we highly recommend them.

Andriana & Thomas Graham First Time Home Buyer

Adrian, I appreciate all of the hard work you did for us and your genuine sincerity in wanting to help us find the perfect home. You were such an amazing person to work with and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family looking to buy a home! Thank you again!


This is the second time working with Mark. We would definately go through with him again. We will be working with him as we purchase our next house on the lake.

Ray and Ann B. Seller & Buyer

Phyllis Kimrey and Adrian Lash with McRae Properties have done an excellent job representing the sale of our home in Montgomery County at Lake Tillery. They always go the extra mile to be sure everything is in order for both the buyer and seller. If you are considering purchasing a property in Montgomery or Stanly County, please consider contacting McRae Properties - especially Phyllis or Adrian.

Robert & Claudia S. Buyer

Adrian was prompt and professional in handling our transaction, and always kept us up to date throughout the entire process. We highly recommend her!

Tipfany B. Seller

Highly recommend Adrian! Professional, responsive, and on top of the entire process. Additionally, we live out of state and Adrian took care of everything on our end from across the country which made it an ease for us! Very impressed with her work and solid 5/5 stars recommendation.

C Ley Seller

Very pleased. Was a wonderful experience trying to selling the house. They worked very hard to help us have a successful closing. We would definitely use them again if the opportunity arises..

Bruce G. Seller & Buyer

Fantastic real estate broker. Phyllis helped us find a great home. She has a wealth of knowledge about the market and area. When we decided to move Phyllis marketed our home aggressively. She didn’t rest until our home sold. She didn’t stop there. During the inspection process she helped us through all the steps. I would highly recommend Phyllis for anyone looking to buy or sell in Montgomery or Stanly counties. Especially knowledgeable when it comes to lake tillery properties.

Lois Stansell Buyer

Phyllis is awesome! She is local to the area and therefore a wealth of knowledge. Super friendly and a joy to work with. If you are looking for a home on or around Lake Tillery, you can’t find anyone better!

Metrah & Brenda S. Seller

My Wife and I are very happy and satisfied with Mark's helpfulness in selling our home at Lake Tillery, N.C.. He sold the house because he understood the properties on the Lake and what it would take to sell our house under the conditions my Wife and I set for the sell. His experienced in selling property on the Lake, and other markets, his work ethics, and his skills for selling were better than others I have seen or have worked with. My Wife and are appreciative of his skills, experiences, and the work he put into selling our home. It is an unusual, large designed home that requires the right buyer. Mark found that buyer.

Linda H Seller

It was bittersweet for me to sell my home but Mark McRae was very helpful in helping me understand the process. Phyllis was a delight to work with and both very knowledgeable about the business and the area. It was a positive experience. My thanks to McRae Properties. .

Katie E Seller

Adrian made the selling process smooth and as stress free as we could hope! She communicated clearly and was always quick with a response when we had questions. She led us through the whole process with clear, realistic, and thoughtful precision. There is not a high enough recommendation my husband and I could provide!

Connie E. Seller

Good Experience!

William R. Seller

WHAT !!! Where did the two stars come from ?? Certainly not from THIS William Robertson !! Phyllis worked hard and continually to sell our home during a slow market. Phyllis is the best realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only will I give her FIVE STARS but if the scale was 1-10 she would have earned all ten!! I can't imagine someone rating her dedication, honesty, and attention to a customer- - just two stars !! Whoever this William Robertson is, it's certainly not me/us. Bill & Karen Robertson. Woodrun on Tillery

Anita R. Buyer & Seller

Phyllis - Exceptional agent! Very knowledgeable with all listings. Highly recommend!!!

Phyllis is very knowledgeable and professional. Great to work with!

Michael & Carol M.

Adrian braved the weather elements (cold and windy) to show us prospective properties on a Sunday! She is very professional and organized! We would highly recommend her!

Deborah M. Seller

I didn't know what to expect when I asked Mark to help me sell a house recently, but he immediately put my mind at ease. He handled every phase of the process in a friendly, informative and professional manner. The house was sold rather quickly, and with very little stress on my part. I'd certainly recommend Mark to any of my friends in the market of buying or selling.

Patrick D. Buyer

I chose to work with Mark because of his reputation in the Lake Tillery Area. He knows all of the properties in the area and really makes the buying experience as easy as possible. I would recommend Mark to anyone that is looking in the Lake Tillery area.

Bob V. Seller

Mark was the seller's agent on a lake house property my wife and I purchased in 2006 on Lake Tillery in Montgomery County, NC. He was always professional and we never felt there was any conflict with him handling our side of the transaction as well. He always maintained his independence and yet provided the level of service we required to make this a simple and enjoyable process. We would not hesitate to use him again should the need arise and would strongly recommend him to others

Diane B. Seller & Buyer

We have worked with Phyllis, multiple times, always with the same positive result. She is honest, with integrity and a high level of professionalism. She has a wealth of knowledge that she generously shares, which is invaluable, when both buying and selling. We have also referred friends to Phyllis and they all had a positive experience as well.

Laurie E. Buyer

Phyllis was great to work with. She was patient with my family of six. We all had specific desires for a home. It took months, and many hours on her part, but we finally have the lake house of our dreams!

Tammy & Mitch S. Seller

My husband and I had the pleasure to work with one of McRae's team members Adrian Lash. From start to finish - Adrian was very responsive, explained everything, and took stress out of the whole process. Our home sold quickly and Adrian negotiated a very satisfactory deal. Adrian answered questions very quickly and we never had to ask a question twice. We highly recommend Adrian for any real estate service - Buy or Sell. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Adrian and the McRae Properties Team in the future.

Anna H. Seller

Crystal is a new and upcoming realtor who already has a wealth of knowledge and is quick to ask questions from others when she doesn’t know 100%. We asked Crystal to help us sell our home and from the beginning she worked extremely hard. From going out of her way to assist the buyers agent, so that we could speed the process up since the agent was from out of town. Answered all our questions and kept us very up to date on each process! We are very thankful for Crystal.

Cheryl S. Seller

Crystal was a new agent, but anything she did not know, she asked her team, and provided all the information we asked for. We sold in two weeks, at a great price. She was professional and easy to work with.

Mike B. Buyer's Agent

Adrian - Great communication, thanks!

Dave J. Buyer

Mark has helped several of our friends over the years to find or sell property on Lake Tillery. For this reason, we choose Mark to locate our home. After a preliminary discussion, he presented us with a lot of options both at Lake Tillery and Baden Lake. Like most agents, he showed the areas and the homes to us, but from his experience of living in the area and on the lake, he was able to give us additional insight to many of our questions. We had never experienced lake-house living/ownership and had lots of questions. We found him to be easy to work with, quickly to respond and while he paid attention to the details involved in acquiring the home, he was very relaxed. We have owned our home since Spring 2006 and continue to call Mark as a primary resource for this area. Working with Mark has been and continues to be an enjoyable experience

Ashley G.

Great experience. Have referred several friends. :))

Kathy W. Seller

Adrian was a pleasure to work with! She was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Every time we had a question, she was there to help us and did so in a timely manner. She guided us through the process of selling our property and provided top notch service throughout the entire process. I highly recommend McRae Properties for your real estate needs.

Rob & Deb N. Seller & Buyer

We have used Mark several times in and around Lake Tillery to buy and sell lake property. Each time, we could not have wished for a better experience or process. Mark’s deep knowledge of and close connection to the area have proven invaluable. His experience with the local market is only surpassed by his open and honest disposition and his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients. Above all, I have been impressed with Mark’s responsiveness and how he quickly addresses any questions, issues, or concerns. If you want an agent that genuinely acts in your best interest, choose Mark. You won’t be disappointed.

Chad & Amy M. Builder

Mark and His team have been a vital part of our business with building homes on Lake Tillery. Their knowledge of the current market, what people are asking for and bringing traffic flow into our Spec Homes has been a proven winner. Not only has he and his team helped us on the business side, they showcased our personal home on the lake when we were ready to sell and got it under contract within a few weeks! They are down to earth, friendly and shoot you straight- there is no playing games! Mark and his team want to help you get exactly what you are looking for without all the run arounds! Thankful to have them as business acquaintances and friends.

Robin D. Buyer's Agent

Working with Adrian as the Listing Agent for my buyer was a pleasure! Adrian was always quick to respond to any questions or requests we had. She was friendly, detail oriented and responsive. I look forward to working with her again on another successful transaction!

Thomas P. Buyer

Purchased a home in Norwood while in Colorado, site unseen. Mark was a fantastic guide, counselor and turned out to be a good friend after we moved here. Great job handling our search. Nothing but good things to say about him and our collective experiences.

Ross F. Buyer

Mark McRae and his team are the most knowledgeable of any realtor on the lake. They know this market very well and will find you the right house at the right price. I would highly recommend them.

Brad B. Buyer

Excellent experience. Could not have been happier buying a house with Mark. He was very responsive and guided us through the process start to finish.

Lisa P. Buyer

I want to express my gratitude to Mrs. Adrian Lash of McRae Properties, for a amazing job and taking such good care to all the details during my home purchasing process. The moment I was introduced to her by my sister, she has been nothing but a complete joy to work with. I could not of asked for a better Realtor in my corner to help me understand everything that needed to be done as we went through the process of purchasing my first home. Adrian went over and beyond to make sure that I got exactly what I was looking for, at a fair price. I highly recommend Adrian Lash of the McRae Properties to anyone looking for a very good Realtor. Not only will you be in great hands you will also make a life time friend just like I did.
