Happy Clients Are The Key To My Success!



Lia has become our friend

Imagine having a daughter graduate from college, a son getting married, selling your home after 12 years and moving halfway across the United States...all in under 90 days! That is what we faced and we needed a Realtor that we could trust and could get us through the buying process! Thank God for Lia! She immediately earned our trust and put us at ease. She took the time to listen to our needs and understand what we were going through, She knew our time was limited and she didn't waste any of our time. She is an expert on the area and answered all of our questions. We looked forward to being with her because she makes it fun! She organized our day so that we were not overwhelmed. She provided just the right amount of information so that we could make the right decision and never pushed her own agenda. I respect her integrity and professionalism. Lia has become our friend and I would highly recommend her to anyone transitioning to the Raleigh area.

I worked with Lia Watson on my home purchase. Lia was tireless, showing me so many houses, over several months, but still advising me to be patient and wait for the right purchase. As a single adult, I appreciated Lia as a sounding board for all my thoughts and opinions as we viewed candidates for what would be my new home. I found the perfect house earlier this month and am so glad that I waited! There were multiple offers on the property, but Lia was able keep my offer on top of the pile, and I will be closingtomorrow! I am so excited about my new home, and am grateful to Lia Watson for being such a fun and reliable partner in the journey.

My husband and I were so lucky to found Lia as our realtor. We didn't have much time to find and close the house but she did a great job to found a perfect house just on time and every paper work went very smoothly because of her hard work! She's very dependable and always honest and just great person to be around. I really miss seeing her being honest. 
Thank you so much Lia!!!

Couldn't have been a better experience!


My husband and I had a “couldn't have possibly been better" experience with our Realtor Lia Watson!! We spent many busy weekends, countless emails, texts, and phone calls communicating with Lia during our journey of finding a new home in North Carolina. Lia took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for and who we are as a couple. We trusted her with ideas and options within the first week of meeting her. Not only did we find the perfect home in a fabulous area, but we made a friend. She went above and beyond as a support in some difficult situations as well as being available for us when needed on short notice. Lia is very knowledgeable of the area and was a huge help in finding everything that we were looking for in a new city! We had a blast spending time with her, and grew sad when we finally picked our home (knowing that our time with Lia was coming to an end). Lia has professional and personal experience working with relocation, which made our experience with her a breeze. The anxiety of moving to a new area was much less, due to working with such an expert. We would recommend Lia to anyone in the area looking for a great team to help guide them in the right direction to find a future home!! Thanks Lia!!

"Lia was great to work with!"

Lia was great to work with! When I first started looking she asked what I would like and what my pre-approval amount from the bank was. She found several great homes for me to look at that were all within exactly what I asked to see. Lia was able to work with me around my difficult schedule and was able to show me homes late in the evening and on Sundays. When I found the home I eventually purchased she was very helpful in letting me know what offer was reasonable and recommended a great inspection company. Once my offer was accepted Lia checked in with me often and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the whole process. When it is time to locate in the future, I will be sure to call Lia Watson!


"I could not imagine a smoother buying process..."

I could not imagine a smoother buying process. Being a first time buyer, working with Lia made purchasing a home a breeze! Exceeding expectations to the fullest and being there for me every step of the way are only a few of many highlights to her customer service! Needless to say, I will be going back to Lia Watson for all of my real estate needs.

Lia was simply the ultimate professional. She was very informative positive any challenge that came about. Lia was always responsive kind and honest. She was always available for any questions we had and usually responded with data or percentages to back up her reasoning. All in all she was on  top of her game and we would recommend her to any friends or family.

I wanted to acknowledge the impeccable care and service given to my family by Lia Watson. We had a very tricky move form out of state; my husband came here to Raleigh ahead of us. We were completely in her hands as we were totally unfamiliar with the area. We put our trust in her and she was there every step of the way. Lia faced the challenges with confidence and shared our stresses and triumphs. In the end, she along with our loving Savior, did not disappoint. We are so thankful to have had Lia as our agent.

We will be looking for new property in the near future and look forward to working with her!



My husband and I live in the Chicago Illinois area, but were looking for a smaller second home in the Raleigh area. It was just by chance, that I saw the office number for Lia Watson, on a ramdom " home for sale" sign. I called Lia, explained to her what we were looking for, and a purchase price range. I also told Lia, I would only be in the area 2 weeks. Lia met me the very next day, to show me some properties. She showed me properties in marginal areas, explained pros and cons of those more established neighborhoods. She showed me homes in wonderful areas, and in areas that are getting new life, with restorations being done. Lia informed me about things like, mold, and termites, which are really not a consideration for a property in Illinois. All this being said, I found a wonderful home in Wake Forest, with Lia's help and expertise within two weeks. Lia is professional, knowledgeable, and wonderful to work with. She took care if all details, even set us up with all the local inspection services we required. My husband and I have bought and sold eleven homes, as we have moved for his company. Lia Watson is the best realtor I have ever worked with.


Lia was more than helpful during my home buying process. She was always available for showings and patience enough to show me as many homes as possible. Very knowledgeable and updated on homes that were on the market. Walked me through the entire process with good advice so that buying a new home was the easiest process that I ever had experienced. Looking forward to working with her once again, and so is my sister.

Lia made purchasing my first home as a single mother seem so much easier. She is knowledgeable, bright and energetic. If she doesn't know the answer, she will find someone who does!!


Lia was extremely helpful during every step of the home buying process. As a new home buyer, much of the home buying experience was unknown to me. Lia was patient through the entire process and could not of asked for a better person to have worked with.

Very helpful! Lia, showed us several houses that were in line with our specifications. We appreciated the very professional service, and we were able to find a great house at a negotiated price that fit our budget.

My husband and I moved here from Pennsylvania and really didn't know much about the area. Lia was an answer to prayer; she guided us every step of the way. She was there for the both of us helping my husband and I work through some hard questions and fears about coming to a completely new area. Thanks to her we are in a beautiful home in a good school district. She was a great negotiator, honest, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. We would certainly recommend Lia and would hire her again should we need her services.

Lia is an amazing real estate agent. She is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I just closed on my new house today and it could not have been a more fun experience thanks to Lia's great work. I would (and do) recommend her to my friends and family.

Katie Beth

I work with many real estate agents in my business but I chose Lia because she is real and down to earth. She works for her buyer and is on top of every detail. I could have called any of my business associates but Lia stood out way ahead and I was never disappointed. Would I use her again....absolutely, hands down the best!

Ken W.

As a first time home buyer, Lia made the process easier and more enjoyable than I ever imagined it could be! Lia was extremely helpful in providing me options to choose from and attentive to the details I requested. Lia was honest, upfront, and completely trustworthy. Most of all, Lia made the process fun! I would highly recommend using Lia as your real estate agent!


Lia Watson helped my family find the perfect home! She went above and beyond my expectations of a realtor. We were living in NY and searching for a home in NC. She made the process as easy as possible and we couldn't possibly be happier with her. Her professionalism, knowledge of the market, eagerness to find exactly what we were looking for and overall wonderful personality are what make her the best real estate agent there is!!!


Could not have been a better experience with buying our first home! She was extremely knowledgable, high energy and always willing to work with our hectic schedules! I am so thankful for her help and have already recommended her to several friends. Can not thank her enough for helping find our dream home!!

Lia Watson Real Estate Broker, REALTOR®

I am truly passionate about Real Estate and living my dream as a Real Estate Broker. I have been relocated with my family 10 times across the United States and Puerto Rico. This has not only made me sensitive to my clients needs during the buying process, but has given me first-hand knowledge and understanding of the stresses that go along with relocating. Whether it is across town or across the country I have experienced both many times. I have now lived in the Raleigh-Durham area since 2007 and feel it is a wonderful place to live, whether …
