My wife and I have spent many vacations in the Outer Banks, and recently decided it was time to have our own “get-away” home in Corolla. We visited many homes for sale. The majority of these homes had been in rental, and unfortunately most required significant renovation, which we did not want to undertake. We had just about given up when introduced to Raju Uppalapati, the premier developer in the Outer Banks. We met with him and visited several of his homes under various stages of development process. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the homes, and the manner in which Raju presented them. Having had 5 previous homes built, we knew a little about home building, and his process appeared to work well with us.
As the project began, we were frequently given status updates by Raju, making us feel very comfortable. We ultimately realized what a great experience this would be when we went to select all the furnishings (colors, granite, sinks, carpet, etc.). It was a very smooth process, with no hidden upcharges.
We were never told any item would cost more (as most builders do) and his standards were all very good quality. Not to expect a “cost addition” at the end of the contract was very important to us. During the development process I became ill, and Raju not only checked on me, but often let me know I had nothing to worry about, he would take care of everything. And he did!
We love our new house thanks to him and his team!
More than a realtor/developer, Raju is now our friend and we hope to see he and his wife often. They are truly exceptional people!
