“From the very first meeting Renee Hillman and Robin Lilley demonstrated their extensive real estate knowledge and expertise, and immediately put us at ease to begin our home buying journey. We worked closely with Robin during the search. Robin gave us honest advise, expert opinions, and was very patient with all of our questions. Most importantly she listened and picked up on details big and small to help us find the correct house to meet all of our needs. She even came to the rescue for us when we bit off a little more than we could chew on an offer. Working with Renee and Robin was the best home buying/selling experience we’ve had and couldn’t be any more happy with their services.”
— The Kenwards
“Renee and Rebecca were awesome to work with! From the first time we met Renee, we loved her confidence and knowledge of our specific market. Every step of the process was clearly communicated and made so simple…and, of course, the day-one sale was pretty great as well! We would highly recommend Renee and her team!”
— The Smiths
“This is the second time we have worked with Renee and her team. Renee helped find us our first home nearly 5 years ago. We had such a positive experience, we called upon her again for our next move (to assist with both buying and selling). Renee’s knowledge, experience, and insight were truly invaluable. She and Robin expertly navigated us through the unconventional process of buying a home in bankruptcy. This could have been extremely stressful; however, they were constantly in contact with us, the trustee, the listing agent, and legal team to make sure everything was progressing on track. I felt great comfort knowing we were supported, as were our best interests, throughout the entire process. We are now settled and LOVING our new, forever home 🙂 Due to the more lengthy buying process, we ended up listing our previous house right before a snowstorm in December. Renee had prepped us well for listing (giving us detailed instructions and helpful tips), but I was concerned about how quickly we’d sell during a slower season for the real estate market. After “coming soon” marketing, an early open house, and only 2 days on the market, we received multiple offers! We ended up selling our house for about 5K higher than we anticipated, all on our terms. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and a more outstanding team. We would HIGHLY recommend HREG for any of your real estate needs!”

“Renée and her team are the best. Buying and/or selling a home is stressful but Renée minimized that stress through upfront expectation setting, clear and frequent communication, and providing support of a customer oriented staff. From start to Sold I felt like I was well taken care of. My next home sale or purchase will be with Renée and her team.”
— The Lyons Family
“We were referred to Renee by our mortgage broker and are so thankful we were given her name. Renee was instrumental in helping us find our perfect first home. She took into account everything we found important and went out home searching at times that were convenient for us. We loved her honest advice about what we should expect to find in our price range. Even after we purchased and closed on our home, Renee made it a point to check in on us and make sure all the jobs that were contracted were completed in a timely manner. We highly recommend Renee to anyone looking to buy a new home- we most certainly will be calling her again when we out grown our first home.”
— The Reich Family
“I could not have asked for a better experience. Renee is the best of the best. She is professional, easy to work with and her level of expertise is amazing. Renee also has a stellar team to assist in the process. My home was under contract very quickly and we even received over the asking price!”
— Jacqui S.
“We met with quite a few agents before choosing Renee, because of her experience, professionalism, and friendly, open demeanor. We absolutely could not have been happier with the service we received. She helped us sell our home in just a few days, AND got us over our asking price!!! We cannot say enough amazing things about Renee and her wonderful staff.”
— Kimberly D.
“I recently worked with Renee to sell my home in Durham and had an outstanding experience. She was recommended by a friend and completely exceeded my expectations. Even though I no longer live in the area of the home, she made the process incredibly convenient. Two days after listing, we received 6 offers all over list price. We closed a few weeks later with an incredible deal. It was fast, easy, and Renee and her team was incredibly responsive and professional. I could not recommend her more!”
— Greg C.
“Renee and Robin were great to work with. They took the time to sit down and understand exactly what we were looking for and made the whole process relatively easy.”
— The Couchs
“My house sold today! I was very happy to have Renee Hillman, plus her team, as my agent. I recommend them without reservation. Here are a few reasons why: Renee does her research. This happened even before we met in person so that during our first discussion she could give me a range of asking prices I could think about for the house. She took my situation and preferences into account (I wasn’t living in the house, I wasn’t in a hurry to sell, etc.) and made a recommendation. The number we settled on was higher than I’d expected but fine–no hurry. The majority of online comments that came in judged that the house was over-priced. But in the end? We had two offers, within a couple of weeks, the higher one for almost 4% more than our asking price. The right people found our house and liked it. Renee had great judgment. Selling a house turns out to be a lot more complicated than I’d expected. There were lawyers to talk with, electricians, window repair people, a junk removal service, cleaners… people doing stuff that needed to be fixed. There’s the process as well: staging the house, taking photographs, putting the information online (Zillow and other places), managing walk-throughs and an open house, and probably other things I’ve forgotten. The bottom line is that Renee took care of all of this. I could have been more involved–she’s transparent about everything going on–but I trusted her to make it all work. She did. The Zillow house listing was getting between 100 and 700 views every day, and there were a couple of dozen visits. I was in a complicated situation, living 300 miles away and visiting Raleigh once every few weeks. And the house was still half-full! How could I get everything out in time for the closing? Rebecca, Renee’s assistant, stepped up and supervised donations to charity (including disassembling an entire floor loom!), cleaning, junk removal, and so forth. That’s my story, with a happy ending.”

“Renee and her team helped us sell our townhouse fast and for above asking price. She is extremely detail oriented, quick to respond to questions, and very knowledgeable about the market. Her professionalism helped make the process easy. We highly recommend Hillman Real Estate group!”
— Aaron H.
“Renee and team have sold two of our houses. The last one sold in less than two days. She is thorough, professional and considerate on every level. I highly recommend her!”
— The Slaters
“My husband and I LOVED Renee! She helped us find the home buyer who’s offer we ended up accepting in THREE DAYS! She takes the time to understand what you’re looking for, offers honest advice, and never misses a beat. She was fun and professional and helped us sell our townhouse with ease. There’s no competition, she’s absolutely the best!”
— The Tariqs
“I’ve bought several homes through the years. Renee and Robin were easy to work with and the process was about as stress-free as buying a home can be. I highly recommend them.”
— Elizabeth C.
“Renee and Robin helped me to buy my first home. They have done a great job and I would definitely recommend them! Renee came to the first meeting and was very prepared, she understood what I was looking for and was able to provide great recommendations. Renee and Robin explained the home buying process and answered my questions throughout. Although I ended up going through a new construction home process they explained how that would work and went to builder meetings, design center appointments and were there for me along the way. My new home is beautiful and I am so excited about it.”
— Amanda B.
“We recently sold our home with Renee and can not say enough about how seamless she and the team made the process. We were able to sell our home with 10 offers in less than 2 full days on the market for 11K over our asking price. We recently purchased our new home privately from a friend and saw first hand how much effort it takes to coordinate the sale of a home. Renee is working hard behind the scenes and covered every detail from start to finish. Selling your home is stressful, but with this team, the process is as smooth as possible. Leave it to the pros if you want to decrease the time your home is on the market and get the best possible sale price you can! Thanks Renee!”
— The Dantinis
“You will not find a better team in the Triangle! Renee and her Team are very tuned in to the market. They hold your hand and let you know what to expect the entire process. The communication I received from her was incredible and made me feel like I knew what was happening and what I should do every step of the way. I can’t say enough about the service and attention and over the top professionalism! I would recommend to anyone and I will be using them again for any of my real estate needs.”
— Chris S.
“It was great to have Renée as my selling realtor. She has great business acumen, is very personable, and backed by a great team of experts who truly know the local market. Renée is patient as well, and ready to answer any questions that homeowners (or future owners) might bring to her. This ReMax team seemed like it was always available to me, and whenever I would send an email to cover some point, their responsiveness back to me was unparalleled. In my case, I was unable to be physically present as this house was marketed, but Renée was a great proxy, so that I was always aware if something back home needed to be taken care of. This was a great load off of my mind as an absentee owner. I highly recommend Renée and the strong team that comes with her to anyone buying or selling in this market.”
— Mark W.
“This is our second experience with Renee and her team, and just like the first time, we had a wonderful experience yet again! Renee and her team were able to secure an offer on the house we sold in under two days, higher than our asking price! The photographer she works with, the websites and blogs she sets up, and the streamlined process made everything seamless and effective. Once the offer was secured, Renee and her team stayed on top of the procedures and requirements to sell our home and kept us informed the entire time. It made the process of selling a home so much more relaxing, and we recommend her team many times over!”
— The Kafels
“Renee was phenomenal to work with from beginning to end! She knows her market, is an extremely hard worker, communicates well and possesses an incredible amount of attention to detail. These are only a few of Renee and her team’s amazing talents that got our house sold incredibly quickly and for over asking price! Oh – did I mention it was also the middle of winter and the holidays?! Renee truly made the home selling experience the best we have ever had. We recommend her highly!!!”
— The Bransons
“I was referred to Renee by a good friend in Wilmington. I met with her and Robin shortly after reaching out to them about buying my first home. They both drove from Raleigh to Durham, to meet me on my lunch break. I initially said I was thinking a 6 – 12 month timeline. WOW was I wrong. Robin started sending me houses right away through a super easy portal. Robin was quick to meet me whenever I wanted to see a house. I saw two houses that I liked and she said we would need to move quickly – so we went straight from work that same day. It was about a month later and we were closing on the house. MY FIRST HOUSE. Robin was so easy to meet with. She always made it convenient. She kept me calm when I panicked and was quick to respond with my never ending questions. She was there on the closing day. She even gave me an adorable, new home owner, care package! Robin and Renee were amazing. They made my first time home buying experience way less stressful than I could have ever imagined.”

“As a first time home buyer, I had zero knowledge when it came to real estate, and being someone who always tried to figure out things by herself, I, for a moment, though I did not need an agent representing me. LUCKILY! I decided to find an agent and help me with this scary Home buying process. I found Renee through some online search and decided to contact her to test the water. One of my biggest pet peeves is I can’t stand slow responses, but when I sent Renee the initial email, I swore she replied back to me within 5 mins! This definitely gave me really good feeling/vibes because from personal experience, I know if someone who is passionate about what they do, they want to make sure they are on top of everything and won’t keep their customers wait. I met with her and Robin and they gave me this warm and friendly feeling. My guts told me that they were gonna help me go through this process so smoothly so I went with them. My entire process and experience working with Robin was amazing. She replied to all my emails instantly. She worked with my builder and always kept me in the loop on what happened. I get nervous very easily and am always worried about too many things. But when I worked with Robin, I was never worried about one single thing because she handled everything professionally and promptly. If you are looking for buying a home, I highly recommend Renee and Robin!”

“Much like you are doing right now, we looked at a lot of reviews for real estate agents to help us sell our house and we landed on Renee Hillman. You can believe all the other great reviews you are reading. Renee listed our house and had it sold in just a few days. I’m sure Renee and team are super busy, but you will feel like you are their top priority (and you are). In fact, we are so satisfied that you should stop looking for an agent right now and just give Renee a call—you won’t be disappointed. Oh, this review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Rebecca, Renee’s client care staff member. Rebecca made sure that all our questions were answered very timely and helped get us all the way through closing without a hitch. Thank you Rebecca!!”
— The Wentz Family
“Hillman Real Estate Group was a dream to work with! Renee and her team took all the stress out of selling our house! They kept in constant contact so we always knew what was going on even when we were in another state. I can’t recommend this group highly enough, they are all amazing!”
— The Harper Family

— The Lukasina Family
“There were many times that we ended up with questions that she either already knew the answers to, or she found out almost immediately.”
