Recent Testimonials

Carl and Nita Roberts

Thank you Steve and Jana for going the extra mile for us.

Ernie and Joyce Buschaus

Thank you for all the assistance you both gave us in the sale of our home. We should have contacted you and Jana first, you both proved again that your outfit is #1 when it comes to water property sales. Merry Christmas to you and your team.

Tom and Belinda Scheber

We have only words of praise to describe our experience with Steve and Jana Tyson of The Tyson Group in New Bern.   We were initially charmed by New Bern during our first visit to the area, but had no idea where to start looking for a home or the benefits and drawbacks of each area. Luckily, we contacted the Tyson Group and asked a few questions.  During each succeeding trip to New Bern over the next eighteen months, Steve and Jana would patiently take us on tours of the local area and help us learn about the many different options available. We finally found just the house that we had envisioned and are delighted with our new home.   During our previous house-buying experiences, the house closing ended the willingness of a real estate agency to extend advice and assistance – that was not the case with the Tyson Group.  Steve and Jana provided invaluable help and advice to us after closing and helped make our transition to our New Bern  home as smooth as possible.  Throughout our process, the Tyson Group was consistently friendly, helpful, and willing to go a “step beyond” what we have previously experienced from real estate professionals.

Tom and Belinda Scheber, Carolina Pines, NC

Tony and Linda Poletto

Being that we live in Pennsylvania, we knew that it could be difficult to find the right realtor to sell our New Bern, NC lot. We had a couple of recommendations about other groups, but there was never any call back or follow up. One day we contacted the Tyson Group after receiving their postcard in the mail, and that was it. After one phone call, we knew we found the right people to help us. We spoke to Steve many times during the listing and sale process. He made every step so easy and simple. We did not have to make a special trip to NC - everything was handled quickly, easily and professionally.

We highly recommend Steve Tyson and the entire Tyson Group. We will definitely use them when it is time for us to move to New Bern.
