This was just an old small two-bedroom home I bought right out of college in '07. Unfortunately, I took a new job elsewhere in '09 as the economy was collapsing, and it was comped at almost half of what I paid for it, so I had been renting it out the past 10 years. When Robin came in, he knew what needed to be done to get the home appraised at a decent price and get me the most return on investment. As I'm still out of state, he made this process extremely easy by finding the people that could do the work needed, providing me with a quote, a...

It is no secret that the Joan Killian Everett company is the best in Hickory realty. Having experienced their expertise secondhand when my parents purchased their home in Hickory, my husband I knew immediately who we would use to purchase our first home. As first-time home buyers, this process was new, exciting, and sometimes confusing for us. We worked with Michelle, who was always a joy to be around and extremely knowledgeable about the Hickory real estate market. She was patient with answering all of our questions, she was a...


Joan Everett is one of the most thorough, hard-working, and responsive people I've ever dealt with. I live out of town and was handling the sale of a home for a family member so I needed someone I could trust when I was unable to make the trip to Hickory. She answered every call and text in a very timely manner and I was always informed of what was going on. At every turn, Joan was jumping in and helping before I even had to ask. She recommended wonderful, trustworthy people to help me with improvements that were needed before listing, and ...


Our home had been on the market for over a year when we made the decision to list with Joan Everett. Joan responded immediately to our request for assistance in selling our home. We were impressed with how quickly she turned around market analysis and made recommendations on what we needed to do to make our home more marketable. She provided us with viable and affordable solutions to make our home more appealing to buyers. Trusting her expertise, we went with almost all of her recommendations. Within 48 hours of listing our property, Joan pr...


Joan and her team, Robin and Michelle, were incredible. Their knowledge of the real estate industry and their market was superb. As out of state purchasers, the extra effort that was put into assisting us as well as all the behind the scenes effort made this experience stressless and enjoyable. Joan was recommended a year ago by individuals that we encountered briefly. We are very happy that we kept her name and then contacted. I have already passed her name on to one couple and I will have no problem passing it on to any and everyone. Have ...


Robin made our home buying experience, from searching through purchasing, enjoyable, and manageable. He was both personable and professional throughout and communicated with us in a timely fashion. His knowledge about real estate and home construction assisted in our making a decision that was right for us. His firm also provided some cleaning service prior to us moving into our new home, which we found to be above and beyond our expectations. A friend recommended Robin to us and we would recommend Robin to anyone else in search of a home!


This was my third and fourth transaction with Michelle Mitchell-Impagliazzo of the Joan Everett Team. The experience of closing on two properties (selling and buying) on the same day was extremely stressful, and I cannot imagine how much more difficult the process would have been without Michelle's expertise, patience, and loyalty. From start to finish, she made sure everything was in place, often doing the work of the other two agents involved on both ends to ensure a seamless process for me. Highly, highly recommend this team.

90 days from listing to close in a buyers market. Limitless patience with anxious seller. Over the top in response time, getting contract help when needed, following up on details, etcetera. Joan and her team (Robin, Michele) made sure the process was managed and controlled, not left to chance. The staging was kept simple, using existing furnishings. It masterfully matched the target buyer. The drone video service then produced a realistic sense of what the house was about, privacy, openness, and quality finish.

I worked mostly with Robin on the Joan Killian Everett Team. He was terrific and really helped span three time zones during the closing. Most of the transaction was done remote, once the house was on the market. Prior to that excellent suggestions were offered to make the house show its very best on the market. The house had four offers within three days and sold. We closed 48 days from putting it on the market. Excellent!


We were moving to Hickory from out of town. Robin was very knowledgeable about the different areas of Hickory and gave good advice on neighborhoods and listings that would meet our individual needs. He was very patient in showing us numerous properties. He gave quick responses on any questions or issues we had. He was a pleasure to work with and we would definitely use him again and recommend him to friends.


Robin was awesome to work with. We only personally met him a few times since we were living in a different state during our home buying process. Despite that, he was always personable and helpful. He was very knowledgeable about local builders and contractors and did a lot of legwork on our behalf. We'd heartily recommend him to any other potential client.

It was a great and wonderful experience working with Joan and her team. Making the listing and sale of my parents home across the country super fast, easy, and smooth. They kept us updated on all details and was super accessible. Would definitely recommend their services to everyone.


Excellent realtor from beginning to end. This group of realtors was great with communication and worked tirelessly to make sure our deal worked for us. They understood what we needed as sellers and worked for more than a week to negotiate the right agreement for our house sale.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Michelle, Joan, and Robin. They are always available to answer questions and to show homes that we were interested in. We have both sold and bought homes with their help and could not have had an easier and more enjoyable experience.

Buyer & Seller

We had an excellent experience with Michelle. She was extremely professional. She showed us several homes and made herself available at all times. Also, she was always quick to respond to a text, phone call, or email and that was greatly appreciated.

Excellent attention to detail. Joan and Team were there for us at every turn, helping us list, improve, and eventually sell our home. I would recommend Joan Everett if you are looking to list your home with a team with a proven track record.

Joan was professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work with! Michelle and Robin responded almost immediately to any questions or concerns I had. They sold my mother’s home in two days for more than the asking price. We are very pleased!


Joan and her team are heads above their competition. When my elderly parents needed to downsize, Joan and her team brought the latest and great technologies and expertise in and were able to sell my Dad's home in less than a week.

Paul W. C.

We used Joan when we bought the house in 2002. Then and now Joan showed us why she is the "best" realtor in the area. Joan and her team are professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. We highly recommend Joan and the team.

Pat & Dick F.

Robin is a very experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent. He is professional and even keel from beginning to end, a pleasure to work with. Now that we have closed I will honestly miss seeing Robin so often!

The Joan Everett Team is great. They listen, and discussed our preferences. With that information they quickly made recommendations for location and types of homes in the Hickory area. During our home search, Joan's team was proactive. They use online tools and regular communication to keep us informed, and prompt us about upcoming home sales. Joan's team is exceptionally responsive. Joan and others reply to inquiries and request quickly and thoroughly. During the preparation for closing, and after closing, Joan offered additional references...

Working with Michelle was FABULOUS! We were new to the area (and state) so she took us on a tour around the town and informed us of it’s history. She also told us about must try restaurants and local stores and shops that had good ratings. When it came time to view houses from out of state, Michelle willingly gave us virtual tours and trustworthy thoughts on the house, it’s structure, the neighborhood and its smell! Lol! Once we put an offer in on our house, Michelle was quick to get us all the information we needed to sign papers and walked...
