Van-Dee was super to work with. We were new to the area and she patiently answered my unending questions. She kept us up to date on new listings and was available to show us properties when my husband was available. With Van-Dee’s help we found our dream home!

Van-Dee is a great realtor. She is very knowledgeable of Edenton and the surrounding areas. She has helped me to sell a home and to purchase a home. She is quick to respond when needed and to help negotiate offers.

I would highly recommend Van-Dee. She was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process of moving from a different area to Elizabeth City, NC. She helped us find land to build on and find a great rental house to live in while our home was being built. She was a pleasure to work with!

Van-Dee helped us buy our first home, and we are so thrilled with the experience! She helped us find a better mortgage officer than the one we’d originally worked with, helped us navigate how much to offer and what we could ask for, and always was so helpful with everything! I will recommend Van-Dee to everyone in Edenton!

VanDee was very responsive and very helpful with the whole process. It was the most pain free closing I’ve ever had! I’m very happy with my new property thanks to VanDee.

Van-Dee was extremely helpful and hard working as we had a special situation of trying to sell my grandfathers home while I was living across the country. She went above and beyond the normal job of a real estate agent and I would highly recommend her to anyone!


We signed a listing agreement with Van-Dee Hetherington on 4/11/19 and closed on 6/11/19! We lived out of town and everything was done electronically. It was the easiest real estate transaction we’ve ever experienced. This lady is high-energy and will get the job done for you. Highly recommend her services.

Van-Dee was great to work with. She replied promptly, had great knowledge of the area and housing market. No nonsense and straight to the point. Great at negotiating and working with the sellers. She was helpful with closing and document signing. Van-Dee helped us find movers and house cleaners as well as making sure our move in went smoothly and we were well fed!


I used Van-Dee to sell my home in September of 2018 and then again to help find me another home in June of 2019.
Van-Dee met me at my home in 2018 and together we reviewed the comparables in my neighborhood and she helped determine a value for my home. She had professional photos taken and my house went up on the market very quickly. As quickly as it went up, it came down – SOLD. My home sold within two weeks and I was very happy with the end result of the sale.
Spring of 2019 I found myself in a situation where I needed a new home very quickly. Contacting Van-Dee and setting up appointments to view houses within my price range was easy and she worked with my schedule. When I found a home I loved, we actually went out on three different occasions to see it throughout the day, measure rooms, and rock on the front porch. I love how easy she is to work with. I put in an offer and after a little back and forth the house was mine! Van-Dee is a fantastic real estate agent and she is also a good contact when you are new to the area and looking for service professionals within Chowan County. Even after the purchase of my home she helped set up appointments with plumbers, electricians, and heating and air mechanics. She is very knowledgeable of the town she grew up in and is very helpful.
I now consider Van-Dee a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone that is searching for a new home or selling their home. Thanks again to Van-Dee Hetherington and Welcome Home Realty for being such a pleasure to work with.


Van-Dee is an excellent person and real estate agent. I have purchased a home through Van-Dee and sold a home through Van-Dee. You can not find a real estate agent that cares more about her clients. She made the process very easy and stress free. I would recommend Van-Dee 100 percent.
