As a REALTOR myself in California, I realize that in this market it takes a dedicated, and experienced agent to get the job done. After evaluating several agents, I choose Justin and Coastwalk Real Estate to sell my properties in Kure Beach. Over the course of a year, Justin SOLD the three ocean front properties that I owned. Justin worked very hard, was creative, aggressive, and got the job done! I would highly recommend Justin and Coastwalk Real Estate to any SELLER who requires top-notch representation.  -- Jeff Hand

I would like to thank Justin and Howard of Coastwalk Real Estate for their help in selling our home in Seawatch. In a challenging market, they found a BUYER for our home, and worked closely with both parties to ensure a very smooth closing. We have bought and sold many homes, and without question this was one of the best experiences we have had with REALTOR. We loved our home in Seawatch, but with the help of Coastwalk Real Estate we now welcome its new owners to join in its many memories.  -- Robin & Mark Hayes

We want to thank you for the excellent job you and the Coastwalk team did on successfully marketing our ICWW property. I’ve bought and sold numerous residential properties over the years in moves around the U.S. and will say, without hesitation, I’ve never had any more responsive, thoughtful guidance than you provided from start to finish. Anybody with a serious interest in real estate in that area would be well-served to consider you and Coastwalk. All the best. -- Ken Morrison and Helene Meisler, St Louis

Justin and the Coastwalk Real Estate organization did a fantastic job of listing, advertising, showing, and selling our house in Kure Beach.

We would definitely use them again if we were to buy or sell a house, Team Coastwalk is the best! -- Tom & Jeanne Heckler

We had purchased a cottage in Carolina Beach, but in this tough market could we sell and make some money? I met Justin Donaton and discussed my goals with him, including the bottom line. He thought we could do it. To my amazement, Justin SOLD the home for our price, and we closed just one month later! It was the smoothest closing I ever experience. Thanks a lot to Justin & Coastwalk Real Estate. -- Shaw Lakey

I've been in the real estate game for 20 plus years. Buying and selling properties in many different states and markets. I had a property at Carolina Beach that for whatever reason wouldn't sell. I contacted Justin knowing he sold more properties then anyone on the island the past year. I now know why. First, he familiarized himself with the property and the surrounding neighborhood. He then suggested a host of new ideas to aid in marketing. Simple things like leaving a light on, to complex internet marketing techniques not utilized by anyone else. Every week Justin kept me advised of the activity my property was getting and used that data to constantly adjust our strategy. It is not an overstatement to say that he really took my sale personally and didn't rest until the deal was complete. I now not only believe Justin is the best realtor on the island, he's the best realtor I've ever dealt with..... Period! -- Brad Parker

Coastwalk Real Estate came out on a holiday weekend, Memorial Day, and showed us the property. By June 13th we had closed and moved in...they coordinated every aspect of the transaction. ..and after the sale they did not abandon us. Being new to the area Coastwalk Real Estate helped us solve problems by pointing us to additional resources i.e. blinds and insurance. They made this experience enjoyable. We are now the proud and happy owners of a beach house! -- Norman and Diana Harris

Working with Justin Donaton and the folks at Coastwalk Real Estate was the easiest experience we've ever had with a realtor. Even though we were selling from a distance and selling in a soft market, he put together an effective strategy to help us sell our condo. He works with a reliable crew of handymen and HVAC people who took care of all the little things so we didn't have to worry or travel out to the beach to check on anything. Justin knows the area really well, he knows the value of homes if you're looking to buy, and he knows how to price your home fairly if you're looking to sell. -- Dr. Alan & Anne Segal

As you know, we work with a significant number of REALTORS and marketing professionals in the region and I can easily say, you are one of the best...Your attentiveness to our specific property made us fell as though it was your only listing...You delivered exactly what we discussed and certainly negotiated a better deal than we expected. -- David Spetrino, Jr.

We just wanted to say that Justin helped us to find our dream vacation/future retirement home at Kure Beach. We are not from NC and his knowledge and expertise of the area helped to give us the peace of mind we needed to build a home there and have someone (Justin) there locally to check on things whenever we needed. He was never more than a phone call or an email away! We just completed the home and all the furnishings in the past 2 weeks, and we are so happy that we chose Justin and Coastwalk Real Estate. -- Steve & Sandy Southern
