New Bern Office 115 Middle Street New Bern, NC 28560 (252) 638-3500
I am often asked, "Why did you move to such a small town". My answer is very simple. "It's beautiful!"
I am a native North Carolinian and after living near and far, I finally settled where my heart always longed to be, Coastal North Carolina. This community has so many unique features, from its rivers and sounds to its people and history. Let me show you why I fell in love with New Bern 10 years ago. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina Greensboro with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Minor in Political Science. I spent nearly 20 years in television and radio news. My last Television venture brought me to New Bern in 2002. After spending 6 years covering Eastern North Carolina development and growth, I decided to take an active role in that process. I specialize in residential real estate. I love working with buyers and helping families find a forever home.
I am certified in distressed property sales and I understand what it is to find yourself in a very difficult place. If you are trying to avoid foreclosure, let me share my knowledge of short sales with you. It can make a huge difference for you, both emotionally and financially.

Jami was amazing. She showed me many homes and asked questions until she figured out exactly what I wanted. We hit some bumps in the road and she didn’t give up, kept me from giving up. Jami is kind, caring, knowledgeable and professional. She truly does this from her heart.

Jami is beyond professional. she went above and beyond for me and my daughter in the purchase and selling of my homes. I would reccomend her to anyone and will only use her in any of my purchases of real estate.

Jami is absolutely AMAZING!!! I can not say enough good things about her! We used her to find a home when we moved to the area. She was so knowledgeable and was always there to answer our questions. She is not only an excellent real estate agent, but she is a truly genuine, warm, wonderful person who cares about her clients and wants them to be happy. I loved her so much that we stayed in contact after and used her again for our move out of state. The move was very fast. Jami was able to get in and list it quickly and our house sold within a week of listing! I highly recommend Jami to everyone!

Jami was far and beyond more than just my realtor. I had a \u201Cunique\u201D property that would not appeal to the masses yet it was sold in 40 days!
Jami fought for me with the restoration company AllDry USA, (never, ever use them) after the hurricane did damage to my property.
She also stepped up to the plate and testified for me in a property settlement for the same property. She took time out from her very busy schedule and spent hours in court with me.
She became a trusted friend and helped me through a very difficult and stressful time.
I highly, highly recommend Jami, not only as a realtor but also as a person who will negotiate whatever your obstacles are to help you!

Jami made sure I had a really good experience buying my first home and went beyond her duty as a realtor. As busy as her schedule was, she managed to update me daily and answered all my questions in a timely manner. She made sure the lender got all my documents and scheduled all my appointments. She was fantastic.

Jami is fantastic to work with. Her dedication and professionalism is the model all agents should follow. She answered every question I had fast. She forwarded all of my requests, happily, regardless of what they were. She makes you feel like you are her only client. If you are looking for a home, do not hesitate whatsoever in choosing Jami to help you.

Miss Turner was a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and headstrong nature helped me avoid the pitfalls and purchase a wonderful Home. She was available at all time of the day and night to help me with my questions and give me peice if mind.

Jami helped us buy a property in Pamlico County. We are from out of town and she was amazingly helpful with showing us around and meeting our scheduling needs. She handled every detail of the purchase and continues to be helpful guiding us after we already closed. I will use her again if I need to buy or sell in the area. Do not hesitate to use her. You will not find a better agent

Jami was an absolute delight to work with. She made the entire house buying process a pleasure. She responded quickly to any questions we had and made these "First Time Buyers" feel pros. I will be using her for any realty needs in the future and would recommend her to anyone who would stand still long enough to hear it. What a GEM!!!

Extraordinarily professional, kind, and knowledgeable...a true expert in her field. Jami's negotiation skills, active listening, and understanding of the real estate market provided critical and timely support in our search for a new home and selling our property. She was always reachable, trustworthy, and continues to be a great friend. Highly recommended!

Jami has exceeded our expectations and went beyond the typical duties of a realtor. We sold our home from out of state and she kept us apprised of every detail concerning the home sale transaction. She respectfully listened to our suggestions while professionally sharing her own ideas. She promptly returned our calls and always found answers to our questions very quickly. During the sellling process, our home went through a devastating hurricane, and being far away, we thought we would have to start the process all over. But Jami stayed positive, found extremely reliable repair workers quickly and kept right on schedule. It was amazing. We are so glad we hired Jami, and that she took us on as clients. You will not be disappointed with her. You will get the very best in the business.

Jami was on the spot with all our questions, requests and requirements. She was readily available and went the extra mile in getting things done. A real pleasure to work with.

Went way above expectations. Took a personal care of us and we witnessed her taking care of others in the same manner. She has continued to surprise us, during the storms she called us to see if we were ok. We had traveled to higher ground, she asked if we wanted her to cheek on our house. I thanked and assured her that our house was being looked after buy a neighbor. but this is the way she is. We had problems with our lender at just days prior to closing, she called a number of people regarding certain paper work up dates that the lender needed in order to process our loan ( the lender was part of the problem), she new all right words and avenues to use to get what we needed. She is the best.

Jami Turner did a great job getting my home sold in Havelock. I was a distant owner and Jami did over and above to help me with things that I couldn't deal with being out of the area. I was very pleased with all aspects of the way the transaction was handled and would recommend Jami to others and plan to continue to use Jami for any future opportunities that come my way in the area.

Such a pleasure working with Jamie. She's a professional all the time. And honest, she always made me feel like she was doing, what was in my best interest as a First time home buyer!

Selling a house is stressful. Selling a house when you live states away and have a renter in your house is even more stressful. You can't be there to take care of the things that need to be taken care of; you can't be there to vet any vendors; you have no control over the showings; you have no control. At least that's it feels. But if you have a real estate agent like Jami Turner, rest assured, it will all get done and it will all get done superbly. Jami oversaw everything for us. She created such a good relationship with our tenants and she was able finagle a last minute showing for the couple who ultimately bought our house. If she hadn't gone above and beyond, the buyers would have simply moved on. We are eternally grateful to her for her dedication to her clients, her work ethic, and all-around excellent people skills. If we ever find ourselves back in ENC, there is only one agent for us: Jami Turner! Thank you, Jami!!

Jami is AWESOME to work with! I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling!! She will help you see it through to the end and is always just a phone call or text away if you have questions!!
10/26/2018 - Guy L.
Working with Jami is a pleasure. Here work ethic, professionalism and eagerness show in all of her works; from the showings to the closing process. I strongly recommend anyone who is seriously looking to buy or invest to utilize Jami's adapt knowledge of local communities, schools, and utility services. Jami's pride in her work and her client relations is commendable, she makes you feel family and dedicates her time and energetic on and off the clock. Truly a pleasure working with her.

I had the best buying experience with Jami. She worked very hard for me and with me to find my retirement home and make my move from the Raleigh area to this area a smooth transition. She worked around my schedule for showings and provided me information about the this local area with professionalism and dedication to find my perfect home. Thanks so much Jami. I am so happy with my choice and love my new home.

Jami is such a pleasure to work with and SO responsive and knowledgeable. I would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Jami for helping us sell our home and making this process quick and painless!
10/26/2018 - Shelly O.
Jami worked with me on selling my home and buying my next home. My circumstances were very complex. However, Jami was able to make it all happen. I highly recommend Jami in your home buying and selling needs. You're awesome Jami!!!

I have utilized the services of several real estate agents in the New Bern area and honestly, I complained about them all. They were not timely in responses to questions or concerns or they did not appear to have our best interest in mind. With Jami we can say we were beyond satisfied. Jami was available, knowledgeable, friendly, and with us throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Jami without any reservations!
10/26/2018 - David C.
Jami was a fantastic guide, mentor and host to our daughter in all aspects of helping her to find and purchase her very first home. We are eternally grateful to Jami for her caring heart, attention to every detail and her persistence at seeing the process through to completion at Closing. Thank you Jami!

Jami is nothing short of spectacular. She assisted us in finding the perfect match on short notice during a trying time in a tight market. We had to leave our home due to a hurricane and by the end of this experience she had us knowing that it was actually for the best. She is specifically really talented it finding a housing match for your desires and needs in your price range. She was even able to rearrange schedules to save us money. I think it is a rare thing when you feel like your agent is truly your advocate and looking out for your best interests. I can't imagine needing or wanting anything more from an agent.

We love working with Jami! She is very knowledgeable and personable. Working with her feels more like being with a friend rather than an agent. She helped us find our current home over eight years ago and was super helpful along the way. Just this past winter Jami helped us sell our rental property and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. She is wonderful person to know and to work with.

Jami could not have been more hep to us as we shopped for and purchased our retirement home, while we were living in Northern Virginia. Jami's knowledge of the market and the area greatly simplified our search. Jami was always quick to respond to all of our many questions and was quickly available on the phone, by text or e-mail. Throughout this process, we came to consider Jami as a friend rather than our realtor. We knew that we could trust what she was telling us. Jami's knowledge and professionalism, and communications simplified this process for us. I can assure you that if you need a knowledgeable and professional realtor in the area of New Bern, Morehead City, or Beaufort, Jami Turner is the best person to work with.

Jami is an excellent Real Estate agent. Jami went over and beyond to find the perfect home for me and my family. I lived in New York so I didn't have a lot of time in NC. I did a lot of emailing with Jami to let her know what I was looking for. She had sent me many listings to review. When I came to NC, we actually found a home on my second showing. Jami is not only knowledgeable in her field of work, she's pleasant, professional, courteous, and always presentable. Jami also set me up with a great Mortgage agent, who was known for completing a mortgage within 2 weeks. I had a extremely well organize sale. I love my home as does my family. I had a lot of stress to deal with before my move from NY, but because of Jami my life has done a total turn around and I have Jami to thank. If your looking for a great agent, who can take care of your needs and wants I highly recommend Jami Turner.

Absolutely above reproach. Jami has the warmest smile, sharpest eye, and keenest insight when it comes to putting things in order during a home sale. She guided me, kept me appraised, handled the littlest of details, and got the job done effectively and efficiently. I would hire her again without a thought - an extremely trustworthy agent and, dare I say, friend.
