See what my clients say




I would like to express my gratitude to Modi Weiss for his excellent performance as a realtor and real estate consultant. He made the process of our home purchase a wonderful experience. He is very patient and a good listener to the customer needs. His ability to execute our "desired" and wishful house to the best accuracy is remarkable. We would like to communicate our high level of satisfaction from Modi's services in variable aspects: consultant and research (put lots of effort to find the neighborhood that align with our family needs), commitment (very short turn over of all Emails and calls), willingness to take the extra mile (visited houses and sent pictures of houses while we were remotely). Keller Williams is fortunate to have Modi!
We are looking forward to work with you again in the future, Thank you Modi!

Dr. Ornit and Avshalom Falek, Meadowmont, Chapel Hill

Modi Weiss is the epitome of what a real estate should signify. I have been in dealings with real estate both as a buyer, seller, and developer over the past 7 years and no agent has come close to what Modi has provided for me. The most important attribute in an agent is to be available and communicate on a regular basis. As easy as that sounds 95% of agents are not good at that…Modi is in the elite 5% that do. He is available everyday of the week by phone, text, emails and takes calls into the night! When it comes to listing a house Modi uses the most high tech and professional staff to sell a home. Pictures are worth a thousand words and when you see the photographer he uses you will soon know why Modi spares nothing and why your home looks like a million dollars! We sold our house in less than 3 months in the toughest market since the Great Depression. Bottom line is…if you want to sell a home Modi Weiss is the best in the business hands down!

Ben Koren, Raleigh, NC

Modi Weiss was an excellent buyer's agent. From the beginning of the buying process Modi demonstrated a kind of trustworthy and ethical demeanor that is severely lacking in the real estate industry today. I knew that he only had my interests in mind and he was there to help me find the perfect home that was right for me. He was fully knowledgeable of all the real estate trends and was able to explain them easily. Modi gave me the personal attention to make him self available when I was available. Modi genuinely got excited about seeing the homes, almost as if he was the one going to be moving. He understood my personal needs and when he found that perfect home for me, he negotiated a price that made it all achievable. From all the real estate transactions I have personally done, my experience with Modi was by far the best.

Gabe Liberty, Durham NC

My sister and I are both licensed Realtors, in different states, so when we lost both of our parents last year and in turn inherited the home they had in Chapel Hill, listing with a local Realtor was not something we were considering doing at all. As you can imagine, marketing and showing a home from out-of-state became very challenging and the process was very difficult and emotional under the circumstances anyway. We met Modi while we were marketing the home ourselves and in doing so, hiring Modi was a decision that we will never regret. Modi is hands down one of the best Realtors either one of us has ever worked with. He started marketing the home immediately and within a few months had our home under contract, much to our relief, because that is huge accomplishment in this market today! Due to his proffessionalism, determination and knowledge of the area we feel was a major contributing factor that sold our home quickly! We both feel that Modi went above and beyond our expectations from a Realtor to accommodate us through this emotional process. He really made us feel that we were his first priority and still to this day, knowing our emotional attachment to the home, he sends us updates of the remodeling that’s being done. We would highly recommend Modi to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home. We can’t thank him enough for his dedication and genuinely caring for his clients the way he does.

Recently we sold a lot in Chatham County working with Keller Williams Realty's agent Modi Weiss. We have been very impressed with his dealings in every respect. He was very articulate from the beginning defining the current market situation and expectations all the way to signing the contract. We believe that we were able to sell our property so rapidly in this difficult time only due Modi's professional behavior in handling advertisement, timing events, and excellent people skills in interacting with us and with potential buyers. Modi was always reachable, promptly responded to calls and e-mails, and always courteous and friendly. Should we have any other real estate transaction in the future we certainly will choose to work with Modi.

Hillel and Charlotte K, Durham NC

Dear Modi,

I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided relating to our recent purchase of property in Chapel Hill. As an attorney for 35 years, I'm not easy to impress, but your work exceeded my expectations in every respect.

Your thorough knowledge of local real estate, coupled with your very generous allowance of time showing properties and discussing the pros and cons of each, was extremely helpful in our making a good choice of property to buy. You then negotiated well on our behalf, making sure our particular timing and financial needs were met. When circumstances later required changes, you navigated us through those as well. I realize that for a number of reasons our purchase was quite challenging for a realtor. With friendly professionalism, you attended to every detail from the first househunting tour through the closing.

The service you provided was truly exceptional. Therefore, on my own initiative, I am writing this letter to recommend you to others. Please feel free to provide my phone number and email address to anyone who may want to verify or discuss this.

Melissa L. Campbell, Attorney at Law, Palo Alto, CA (Home purchased in Chapel Hill)

Dear Modi,

I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided relating to our recent purchase of property in Modi Weiss is unbelievably excellent! He is a realtor who always puts customers’ interests first, and works diligently to meet their needs. He is one of few agents who study larger pictures of economy and provide home-hunters with reports of market research regularly. He has an entire team to work for him, and has the capacity to mobilize all possible resources to make our dreams real! We couldn’t thank Modi and Keller Williams more for what they did for us in our recent home purchasing! With the highest standards Modi sets for this business, we would be hardly satisfied by any other agents in future for home buying and selling. You spoiled us, Modi!

Dr. Shenyang Guo and Sharon Li Morrisville, NC

We were nervous to put our home on the market. We were in the midst of relocating out of state, so ours was a forced move in that we had no option BUT to sell, and to sell fast. There were some comparable sales in our neighborhood that had the potential to hurt our position, along with other homes that were languishing on the market. We did our due diligence and interviewed four prospective realtors to market our house. Modi came highly recommended to us from one of my colleagues in the office. After concluding our interviews, going with Modi was an easy selection. He presented a comprehensive approach that made my wife and I comfortable. He is keenly in tune with the market, and extremely savvy in his approach to online marketing. It’s my belief that if your house doesn’t stand out online, you limit the opportunity to sell. Within two days of signing the contract with Modi, our house was staged and photographed. A day or two later, we were online with a website dedicated to our house. Of utmost importance was that the site was marketing our house rather than the real estate agency that represented it. Modi did his job because we had two visits on the first day which resulted in two offers. Timing is everything, and Modi maximized our ability to reach the widest possible audience in the shortest amount of time. We would have made a huge mistake if we had gone with anyone other than Modi to sell our house.

Jim & Jamie H, Morrisville NC

Thanks so much for helping us sell our house! We had to move away from Durham earlier than planned and the move was off-season in terms of the housing market. We were absolutely amazed by the clever and professional way in which you handled and helped us with the marketing of our house, we had a buyer in 3 weeks and the house was sold in another 3. All this after a house market season that saw other houses on our street with vines crawling up their “for sale” signs! You knew exactly what it took to make our house shine, taking care of all the big issues and the important small details. When we were at odds with the buyer, you were always there to suggest a creative solution that would work for all sides, things we would have never thought of on our own but seemed to strike the right chord with everyone. You’re a master negotiator, and you obviously know the market inside and out. We still find it hard to believe that in such a hard time for the market, and off-season, you got our house sold so quickly. A feat of magic, almost.
Modi, it was a pleasure working with you and we wish you the best of luck with your successful business.

Yishai and Aya Elyada, Durham NC

The time we had to buy a house was limited, and I don't know how we would have done so without your professional work and dedication. You worked days and nights to find me the exact neighborhood I was looking for, and the right house within that neighborhood. We did it in a very short time!
Your response time was amazing (much faster than what I used to when I worked with other agents), and you always kept me updated, and acted to my best interests. Your work caused me to feel as if I don't have to worry about a thing!!!

Modi, I would like to thank you for your great work and I will highly recommend you to all of my friends. They too should enjoy your services as much as I had.

THANK YOU. Haim, Sapir and Ori Keren. Cary, NC

We would like to thank Modi for helping us out finding a property for investment in Chapel- Hill. The support we've got from him, especially his negotiations skills, helped us to get the right decision at the best price. He is a true professional.

Hillel and Tail Shemer, Raleigh NC

Modi Weiss is a very professional agent. We did not know what area of the triangle we wanted to live in because we work in different cities, and Modi provided all the information that we needed as well as creative ideas that really helped us find a home that was convenient, beautiful and also a good investment. Modi knows how to handle all kinds of situations, and his enthusiasm, professionalism and his love of perfection guide all of his actions. From the very first contact we had with him, Modi offered wise and useful advice. The ultimate proof of Modi's professionalism is that he does not stop guiding you after closing a contract on your home. We feel that we have established a long-standing relationship with Modi and we know that we can trust his advice. We are looking forward to recommending Modi to our friends.

Ed & Irene Gomez Castellano, Hillsborough

We thank Modi for making our home purchase process so convenient and easy. For being always reachable and promptly responded. For being patient and a good listener. For the great dedication and integrity For always preparing few steps ahead and by that saving precious time. For guiding us to the finish line right on time. We are very grateful for choosing working with Modi and we looking forward To work with him in the future.


Naor and Hadassa Snir , Cary

You will not go wrong selecting Modi Weiss as your realtor! He is one of the best agents I have had the pleasure of doing business with. He is honest, prompt, patient with his clients, and yet aggressive in getting the best deal on the property of your choice. Furthermore, he is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I am so happy that I ran into him!

Thanks Modi!!

Tabitha Tavoc Chapel Hill, N. Chatham

Modi helps his clients to buy a house, as he would have bought it for his own family. Modi was available 24/7. In most cases he was the one to call us at night just to make sure everything is set for the next day, or just to inquire whether we have any other questions about the offer, the mortgage, the taxes, the inspection, etc. It seemed he was living his professional life around us, while we actually know he served successfully many other clients at the same time, each of them getting the same personal, dedicated service.
One of the things we admired about Modi is that he provided us with many insights and inputs on all aspects of buying a house, while at the same time he was very cautious not to enforce his own personal likes and dislikes, allowing us to make an unbiased, personal choice.
He connected us with excellent professional, while he encouraged us to get a second opinion from other people. This way, we ended up with a broker who ran smoothly the entire mortgage process and with a lender that provided us better rates than we have ever hoped for.
Modi still continues to assist and help us out of a feeling of care and responsibility and he shares with us his invaluable knowledge on maintaining a house, both professionally and financially. While we would like to think we are special, we know that Modi treats each and every customer of his as a close friend.

We feel very fortunate that we chose Modi to be our realtor and we are happy to live in a house that we love so much.

Anat and Gidi Shemer
Chapel Hill, NC

My husband and I feel fortunate to have found such an outstanding realtor like Modi, as he has been a pleasure to work with. Modi in the end has been more than “just a realtor” as he went beyond the normal duties to ensure that we found a house that we could call home.

Having moved from out of state, we knew little about the best house locations in and around the RTP area. Fortunately, we came across Modi online. Modi was always very prompt in following up whether by e-mail, phone or in person. He has even answered questions late in the evening and toured with us on rainy days. When we sat down with Modi and discussed what we were looking for in our future home, he listened closely. As we looked at homes and lots he provided his own insights, but was also objective so we could form our own opinions. After we chose the lot we wanted to build on, Modi provided great guidance in negotiating the final price. Modi even sat with us as we finalized our build price with our builder although he did not have to. He was effective in persuading our builder to give us the best bang for our buck so we could build our dream house.

We can truly say that Modi went above and beyond and was there when we needed him (and still provides insight if we have random new house questions). We are grateful and appreciative for his professional, yet caring nature and dedication throughout our whole house buying experience. We would definitely recommend those looking to buy or sell a home to use Modi Weiss as their realtor.

Pradeep and Lindsey, Chapel Hill

Modi finished tapping the Keller-Williams signpost into the thawing front lawn. Grinning good-humoredly, he said “They buy the house because of my picture on the sign, you know.”

‘It wasn’t just luck, or Modi’s visage – regrettably – that my 70s-split, open-concept home flew off the shelf in just four-and-a-half days. Modi’s perfect blend of human touch and solid sales techniques made my home sale a sure bet.

I instantly felt at ease as he described the steps we would take to market my home. His gentle, yet commanding, demeanor, ultimately ensured that all marketing tasks were carried out seamlessly and on-time. I was impressed by his extensive experience and knowledge of the real estate industry. His broad network of trusted colleagues provided outstanding services for all tasks from plumbing to moving.

Modi’s consistent and frequent calls and emails kept me completely informed about our progress. He was optimistic and encouraging from point of listing to closing day. Not only did he help me navigate the selling process, but the time and attention he provided was extensive and gave me great comfort.

My delight in selling my home on a dime was almost overshadowed by my sadness at waving goodbye to a very distinguished realtor.

Susan Gragg, Durham

When we decided to sell our home we were not initially convinced that we needed a realtor and tried to sell our home ourselves. After a potential sale fell through we hired Modi Weiss. The experience has been nothing but positive. He assessed our property and helped us decide on a price, sent out a photographer, and set up an amazing website that showed off the best parts of our home perfectly. We were under contract in 8 days! Modi held our hands throughout the whole process and made sure that all of the inspections and subsequent re-negotiations went smoothly. He made himself available any time day or night! In addition when we found the home of our dreams he negotiated an unusual 6 month delayed closing which allowed us to sell our home first while securing the home we really wanted. He advised us on so many real estate matters that we wouldn't have even known about; most importantly to have the new home tested for radon gas. As luck would have it the levels were very high and Modi helped us reach an agreement with the seller inwhich they paid for the mitigation system and we oversaw the installation. As we see it Modi not only helped us sell our home quickly and secure the new house we really wanted, but also saved our children's lives by insisting that we have all important inspections done. We would recommend Modi to anyone looking for a buyer's or seller's agent. He is professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with and really delivers results.

Meg and Marty Hanks, Chapel Hill, NC

We have recently moved to our lovely new house in Durham, which you helped us find and purchase. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the time and hard work you invested in helping us with this project. From looking at houses, through the various inspections and until the final signing of the contract you were always by our side, providing a useful advice and directing us to the next step. It was good to know we have someone professional, dedicated and trustworthy we could count on all the way to our new home.
Yishai and Aya Elyada. Durham, NC

We had been casually looking at real estate listings. Our neighbor had listed his home and it had not sold in more than 6 months so we were nervous about our prospects for selling our home "out in the boonies." We reviewed what was on the market for comparison and while looking at new listings we saw several properties with no pictures included or very poor details. but there was one that was excellent. The photos were wonderful and really displayed the house in the best possible light. It was a surprise to see that the home was built in the 70s. I drove by and took note of the realtor who was listing the home - Modi Weiss with Keller Williams. The house sold within days of the listing. That certainly got our attention. We had been living in our home for 15 years and knew the tax credit would be one of the best incentives for people to buy our home. We also knew that it was about to expire and that it was now or never to make the decision to sell. We interviewed two real estate agents including Modi Weiss who was by far the most knowledgeable and professional. He managed to walk the line between frankness and optimism very well. He told us what we had to do to make our home stand out and brought in people to help us stage the home and take professional photographs. He made sure that we priced the home in the range that would make it attractive to buyers while still making it worth our while to sell. He made sure it was listed in every possible electronic medium (MLS, craigs list, zillo, etc.). When our home was added to the MLS, it contained all the details and pictures necessary to attract buyers during those first critical days. He kept us updated on the walk-throughs and helped us sell our home so quickly that we were able to take advantage of the tax credit ourselves and get an excellent deal thanks to his negotiating skills. This entire process was professional and it was all due to Modi and his skill as a realtor. We highly recommend him if you are looking to sell your home or buy a property. He knows both the traditional methods and modern trends of real estate. We think Modi is the best!

Mark & Debbie Suggs, Hillsborough, NC

We had an exceptional experience with Modi Weiss. He sold our home quickly, as we needed, so that we could relocate and enable our daughters to start school at the beginning of the school year. His strategies for selling our house resulted in a great price even during a terrible real estate market. His customer service is the easily the best we have had from the dozen realtors we have worked with over the years. He communicated with us constantly, keeping us updated on the process, through closing. His attention to detail ensured that everything went smoothly, from the professional picture-taking, creation of our own website and open house at the beginning, to getting us our check on closing day. Modi is the consummate professional – we cannot recommend him more highly.

Tim Cowan and Susan Parish, Carrboro, North Carolina

I am not a big fan of writing testimonials but I strongly feel I need to share my great experience with Modi. All I need to say is that we are extremely happy with the excellent service that Modi provided us. He was always accessible, accomodating, patient and addressed all our concerns as if they were his own. Modi is definitely the ultimate go-to guy for real estate in Raleigh/Durham area and we couldn't recommend him highly enough!

Ji-Myung Kim, Durham, North Carolina

We would like to thank Modi for all his help in the process of buying our first home. Modi is an excellent realtor agent, he is a very good listener and he understood exactly what we were looking for. Modi guided us with his knowledge and insight to find the right home for us in the place we wanted. He is very honest and proactive. He was always there for us, even when he had to travel all the way from Chapel Hill to Raleigh just to show us again one house. He was very quick returning calls or emails , which made all the process easier, especially when we had a lot of questions that needed to be answered in order to make a decision. Modi was excellent negotiating the best deal for us and now we have a beautiful house that we love. We really enjoyed working with Modi and we highly recommend him if you want to buy a house.

Dave Larter and Graciela Barolli, North Raleigh

As first-time home buyers, my husband and I had NO idea what we were getting ourselves into. However, with a lot of luck, we happened to meet Modi. Thank goodness we did! His willingness to answer all of our questions, to provide us with information that we hadn't thought of, and his unwavering patience (through over 25 house showings!) let us know that we had found the right realtor. His dedication was truly refreshing. He even helped us while he was on vacation. We now own the house of our dreams and are making it our home, thanks to him.
Thank you, Modi!

Kevin and Randall, Durham, NC

Hi Modi,

We wanted to write to express our appreciation for all your help in getting us into our new home, which we have moved into today.

As you know, we tried working with 2 other agents, but quickly became disappointed that they couldn't provide the guidance necessary for finding neighborhoods, prioritizing home features, and the other 100 factors involved. We were close to giving up on working with an agent altogether, but luckily met you. Having your input made all the difference. We're sure that it wouldn't have worked out so well without your hard work, your professional knowledge, your availability and your creative thinking.

We'll certainly recommend you to anyone we speak with.

Nina and Brad Young, Cary NC

My wife met Modi on a chance encounter while going to view a home that was for sale. She was impressed with his professionalism and knowledge, so we kept his business card. After deciding to jump into the market and put our house for sale, we arranged a meeting with Modi. Our initial encounter with him left us feeling very confident that we were going to be represented by a sincere, dedicated and motivated professional. Every step of the inevitably stressful home selling process was actually much smoother than anticipated due to attentive and thorough handling by Modi. I truly believe that without his high standards and consistent diligent communication, our house may still be on the market like others that were for sale concurrently. Instead, however, we sold in a remarkably swift thirty days, and are now comfortably living in a home that represents our personality and enhances our level of comfort and contentment. Having gone through a sale and a purchase with Modi, I would highly recommend his service and will continue to value the relationship my family established with him.
