Client Love

“Inna Shapiro is an outstanding real estate agent who was recommended to me by another trusted realtor. She helped navigate me through the sale of my home, with the additional challenge that I had already moved out of the state. She was very professional, extremely competent, and incredibly helpful. She presented excellent ideas and remained in close communication throughout the process. She guided me through every step and responded quickly to my questions, whether by phone, email, or text. What set Inna apart was also her willingness to go above and beyond for her clients, extending extra time and effort to get the job done. She took care of countless details that I could not have managed easily from my distant location. I will be forever grateful for her assistance in what was at times a very stressful process. I recommend Inna highly and without reservation.”

Jenn Hanner, Chapel Hill

“As a first time home buyer I can't recommend Inna Shapiro highly enough. Trained as a lawyer as well as a real estate agent, she is extremely knowledgeable about the process. She has a great eye for detail and what to look out for when buying a house. She's honest about the quality of the properties. She will work with you and make sure that you get the best deal for your money and for what you plan to purchase. On the personal side, she's extremely responsive to questions and is good at what I called "hand holding." Meaning that, as a first time home buyer, she was excellent at guiding me through the process and being there when I needed her or had simple questions. Finally, she is personable and friendly. Given all of these professional and personal qualities, again, I can't recommend her highly enough.” ​

— Stephanie Harrell, Hillsborough

“Inna goes above and beyond to make the home buying and selling process a breeze. She is smart, responsive, excellent with negotiations, has an amazing eye for staging and gives stellar advice every step of the way. She’s fun to be around and she sold our house overnight and way above asking price. Inna is absolutely the best around! She feels like part of our family now and we never want to do a real estate deal without her by our side ever again.” ​

— Alanna Adams, Durham

“Inna Shapiro and her team were incredible throughout the process of selling our home. She helped us price our home appropriately and got us more above-asking offers than we ever thought possible. We interviewed multiple realtors and Inna made the effort to come spend time with us in the home and find out what our timeline and our needs were. She made great recommendations on what we needed to fix and what we could leave as is, and the staging team and the photographer thought of every detail and made our house look perfect in the listing. Inna and MaryJo were easy to work with, communicated well, and took our input into consideration every step of the way. Overall, it was a great experience and we recommended Inna to our neighbors who are also looking to sell their home soon. The only thing we were upset about was that we were moving away from the area and would not be able to work with her again.”

— Jeff Timmick, Durham

Inna and MaryJo are amazing realtors and people. We were recommended by a coworker that also had an amazing home buying and selling experience with Inna & MaryJo. We wanted experienced realtors that would guide us through everything as first time home buyers. From our first zoom call with Inna to signing the closing documents at the lawyer’s office... We closed on our home in an impressive 5 weeks. My husband and I felt Inna and MaryJo looked out for us and answered every question we had. Trust me, this is impressive because I ask a lot of questions! We were confident in Inna’s recommended course of action when inspections revealed important things to investigate. These ladies went above and beyond working around the clock and in constant contact with inspectors, lawyers, other agents, contractors, and everything in between. I loved that they were on our side and always advocated for us. I highly recommend Inna & Co to anyone buying a home in the NC triangle area.” ​

— Leah Machlin, Raleigh

“I cannot say enough good things about Inna. She made us feel comfortable from minute one, and assured us that she'd give selling our tiny condo as much of her time and effort as if it were a million dollar listing. She came with a wealth of knowledge about the market, about what would and wouldn't help our property sell, and staged the place *beautifully*. It sold quickly and without much hassle. I know for a fact that it would not have sold as quickly, nor would we have gotten as much as we did, without Inna Shapiro's guidance and expertise.”

Carrie Aldrich, Carrboro

"Inna Shapiro and MaryJo McCoy are fantastic at their craft. We used them to both sell and buy our homes, and in the current market (Spring 2021) it is definitely not a buyer’s favor. They were with us every step of the way and didn’t leave any stone unturned. Day or night either Inna or MaryJo would be prompt to respond to our requests and questions. They are transparent with what is happening in real estate and were gracious to our hopes, wants, and needs. Both were able to point out the positives and negatives of homes and neighborhoods we would never have looked at or noticed ourselves. Their keenness was a huge bonus. In addition, they provided qualified contacts to move the buying process along with ease. Buying/selling a home is a very stressful process and these two ladies used their professionalism and expertise to make the process that bit more manageable.”

— Jordan Hill-van Overbeek, Chapel Hill

"Inna Shapiro is one of the best realtors on the scene. She not only knows the current trends in marketing your property, but also how to stage it and get the maximum traffic for viewings. When she helped me buy my house, she answered every text, email and phone call. This was incredibly important as I like to be "in the loop" of the process and it also showed me that I could relax about it - she was handling everything, even things I didn't think about! She has wonderful resources for mortgage/loan help, as well as closing law firms and home inspectors. If you are looking to invest, she has contractors on speed dial who can help you with a flip or an update of a home. She is also a tough negotiator, helping you get the most out of your property or get a great steal of a deal if you are buying. Give her a call, I promise you won't be disappointed!"

—​ Yelena Etten, Chapel Hill

“​Inna started working for us even before we hired her. Before she met us, she had already personally visited all the houses for sale in our area that were comparable, had talked with the agents and knew why houses were selling or not. She kept track of the market fluctuations on a daily basis, which helped us arrive at a realistic asking price. In addition, all through the process, she was available and reassuring and knew exactly how to move the process along. We received a full price offer three days after our house went on the market. She also staged our house, much of it with her own furniture. There was no additional charge for this or for any of the myriad of things, like having a photographer do a video of our house, which went on-line. She knows how to use the internet for maximum marketing but is still aware that a lot of selling a house is just hard work. I can't imagine anyone who would work harder for us than Inna. She is a terrific realtor and a great human being. I would recommend her to anyone who is planning to sell a house.” ​

— Annie Allen, Durham

"We were relocating to Chapel Hill from another state, and we chose Inna to help us find a house to buy. Initially we were impressed with her credentials and experience as well as her energy and approach to finding houses for sale. We had developed a long list of “desirables” for this new house, understanding that we would likely have to compromise and that we would have to be patient about finding the right house. Inna was terrific! She immediately began sending us homes that fit the profile. In a relatively short time, we found the perfect house. Inna was invaluable in helping us decipher the legal aspects of the offer and walking us through the subsequent negotiations. She offered her insight but did not push. She was always available to answer any questions we had and did so promptly. At every turn that we needed something (insurance companies, mortgage lender, handyman), Inna and her associate, MaryJo, were there to help. It was a really great experience working with Inna and her team."

Patti Ganey, Chapel Hill

“​Our friends recommended Inna’s services to us, saying that she was the best realtor for their house buying needs, and we are so glad we heeded to their advice! Inna and her assistant, MaryJo, provided us the best possible experience of buying a house. As first-time home buyers, we were looking for an agent who was quick to respond, gave us insight into the changing market such as the best and worst times to buy a house, and any other relevant advice. We found all of those qualities in Inna and she went the extra mile for us every time. She was very easy to talk to, patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the market, and tentative to the needs of her clients. We would definitely recommend Inna to any prospective home buyers and refer to her as an agent in the future.” ​

— Elena Loiko, Carrboro

“​Inna and her team are rock stars! They helped us find our home, and we love it! Not only were they extremely responsive, but they were diligent in getting us everything we needed as first time home buyers. We found out about Inna from our friends who highly recommended her, due to their fantastic experiences working with her too. If you are looking for quality and someone that genuinely cares about putting you in a happy home, look no further. Inna will go to bat for you, give you the advice you need, and help you find your perfect home in this competitive market!"

— David Stewart, Durham

"Inna went well beyond the extra mile in helping us find a wonderful home. She understood exactly what we wanted - original construction, big trees, side street, walking distance to downtown - and made sure to show us only homes that fit our criteria. It was exactly what we wanted in terms of a 'shopping' experience. In fact, upon finding out preferred neighborhood, Inna took the initiative to contact *potential* sellers - let me explain. She first wrote letters - ya know, those things made with paper! - about my partner, me, our background, what we were looking for, and a question about the owners appetite to sell. She then walked around the neighborhood, found houses that matched our criteria, and put these letters in everyone's mailboxes - again, not email, the physical ones. This was all Inna's idea and execution. We were blown away. The market was been driven by sellers. We, as buyers, had to act quickly and Inna and my partner were on top of it. Inna was patient and did not rush us into any decisions. She understood that we were particular about what we wanted and she was totally on-board. She helped us get there. You know it when you know it. Not sure how else to describe it. Must have been the 20th house we saw. But it was it. She knew it and we knew it. Inna moved fast and made sure everything went smoothly. 10 out of 10, would work with again. We love you, Inna."

—​ Gregor Horstmeyer, Durham

"Inna was a godsend. I have bought and sold more than a dozen homes and I have never encountered such professionalism and dedication to her craft. She earned every penny of her commission and then some. I can’t imagine a better person to guide me through either purchasing or selling a home.” ​

— Amanda McKee, Chapel Hill

"I met this amazing, delightful, and lovely agent through my selling agent of my home in Connecticut since I am retired and I was looking for an out of state realtor in the Carolinas. I was very lucky and blessed that I was introduced to Inna, she is courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and made what could have been a nightmare of relocating a pleasure. She researched and found me the perfect house. Trust me, I have OCD and needed literally an exact house to my specifications and she delivered. She walked me through every step and handled every task that I could not do because of the long distance, which saved me plenty of money by decreasing the need to fly back and forth. I am so very grateful to her. I am truly glad to have met her and consider her a true friend. God bless you Inna, I wish there were more agents like you. You are truly exceptional."

​— Blanca Merced, Chapel Hill

"No need to explain what a challenging housing market Chapelboro is for buyers, especially those on a limited budget. Finding the optimal home to buy requires knowledge of the market, speed to react, skillful competing and negotiations, patience and perseverance. Inna Shapiro and her assistant, Mary Jo, provided all that as well as creative thinking, excellent follow through, client orientation and robust resources for potential/new home owners. Although the buying process in this market can be protracted and, at times, frustrating, I felt heard, supported and well guided throughout the process and am now very happy in my new home. Do yourself a big favor and choose Inna and Mary Jo as your team!"

—​ Yulia Nemtsev, Chapel Hill

"Amazing! That's the first word that pops into my head when I think about Inna. She was there at every step and offered advice on what we could do to improve our home to make it ready while also understanding we have kids and a life. She's the type of realtor you can call and know she will do whatever it takes to figure it out. Beyond friendly and positive. She made a tough time way easier!” ​

— Julee Balko, Chapel Hill

"Inna and her team are THE BEST!!! Inna is very knowledgeable about the RDU and surrounding areas, and really knows her stuff when it comes to not only the area but negotiating and closing the deal. We were first time homebuyers, and we reached out to her after being highly recommended, and we immediately liked her and felt comfortable with her. Inna was always more than accommodating to our needs, even going so far as to show us a house on New Year’s day with less than 24 hours notice. She was able to get us scheduled for every showing we were interested in and answered every question we had, even if we had already asked it several times! When it came down to making an offer, Inna and her team were on it lightning fast. They made sure everything was in place and that we gave the best possible offer within our means. After we had our final offer accepted, Inna and her team made sure everything was taken care of and that we understand the process. We highly, highly recommend working with Inna Shapiro and her team."

​— Julia Tennant, Raleigh

"We had been living near downtown Durham for 4 years when we decided (while on parental leave with a newborn) that we needed to sell our first home and find a larger home for our growing family of five and hopefully be able to accomplish all of that during my wife's maternity leave. We had heard through the grapevine of an excellent realtor named Inna, so we reached out to her. She was able to come meet us within a day of reaching out to her, and we immediately connected. She was confident, an excellent listener, and it was easy to see that she was an expert in the Durham realty market for buying and selling. She even made an origami paper crane for our oldest daughter at the end of the meeting and then every day we were asked ‘when will my friend Inna help us find a house’. In regards to selling, Inna gave us advice on what to spruce up and what to leave based on the current market in order to get the sale price that we needed on our home. The various individuals that she recommended to us for minor repairs (painting, landscaping, cleaning, etc.) were all professional, affordable, and did excellent work with a quick turnaround time. Inna and her amazing assistant, MaryJo, staged our home beautifully at no extra cost to us. We had our home on the market within three weeks of meeting her and received an offer quickly. The negotiating and closing was a breeze thanks to Inna’s expertise. Shortly after accepting the buyer’s offer, our real fun began of trying to find a Durham home that was within our price point, close to my work, that also checked our top boxes. Inna and MaryJo were always willing to meet us on short notice at whatever house looked promising, and never minded the three young kids we often had to bring along. They both were extremely Covid conscious and made the best of the very short showing windows that are now the norm due to the pandemic. Within a few weeks of house hunting, seeing over a dozen homes, and one rejected offer, we finally found ‘the one’ the day it went on the market. Inna and MaryJo made sure our offer was as attractive as possible and stayed up late into the night to get our offer in as quickly as possible to hopefully beat any competition. It was accepted and Inna was able to ensure a quick closing as we had been living out of town and we were ready to be back in Durham as soon as possible. The entire process was as painless as house buying in a crazy market can be, and they helped us each step of the way. We have been in our new home for less than three weeks now, but it already feels like home! If you want a realtor team for either buying or selling in the Durham area that is responsive, energetic, talented, and results-driven, give Inna and MaryJo a call today!"

Tolly Ratliff, Durham

“We were looking for the whole package in an agent. We did not know what we wanted or where and we needed someone who would be willing to show us many, many, many different options and locations. We didn’t even have a time frame or strict budget. Inna and her team came to our rescue. We spent an entire year with Inna showing up to each new interest with her positive attitude and straightforward know how. She always responded to our texts and questions and would leap up to show us a place within hours. So incredibly responsive to our needs as first time home buyers. We were in some tight jams within this crazy housing market and Inna went to bat for us and helped us come out the other side without a scrape. We would certainly work with her again and in fact are lucky enough to have her help selling our current home.” ​

— Leslie Cloninger, Chapel Hill

"Inna did so much more for me than I ever knew to expect from a listing agent. I have no doubt that I got a better price for my house as a result of her efforts. She guided me through which improvements and repairs were worth doing. She helped me choose everything from wall and carpet color to light fixtures and vendors. I can't say enough about the great job she did with staging and photographing the house. It made me want to move back in!
I would use Inna for my next real estate purchase or sale, without a doubt."
