Over a decade ago, my family and I made the life changing decision to relocate from the busy and fast paced lifestyle of New York City. Although I was experiencing a highly successful and rewarding career, I desired a better quality of life for my loved ones and found the family-friendly and welcoming city of Williamsburg, Virginia to be the answer. Not only did we find the perfect place to raise our growing family, but this move allowed me to transform my business skills into a Real Estate career I had been yearning for for many years. It was the best of all worlds and I can truthfully say it has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. My two school aged children have flourished academically within the local school system. To my delight, they have joined several extra curricular activities such as football, basketball, band, and dance just to name a few.

Duke worked hard to help us find the right house for us. He allowed us to screen selections, but also offered helpful counsel along the way. Duke made the process simple from start to finish. As we entered the offer and contract process, we were thankful for his expertise as he advised us in negotiations and protected our interests. And at closing, he made sure that the house was ready to our satisfaction. (And Frankie was a gem to work with, too. She kept everything moving smoothly!)

Duke is by far the most honest, hardworking agent I have had the pleasure to work with. Duke is completely focused on his clients needs and consistently went above and beyond to find our dream house. Duke represents himself and his clients with the highest level on integrity and respect and could not be happier to have an agent like Duke on our side. Duke spends the quality time to find the perfect home and than works on your side from the beginning to the end, beyond any expectations. He was there from the 1 year of searching to the offer, to the home inspection, the trips back to the house during closing, and than there to meet us on closing day. If you need an agent that will put you first above all Duke is the agent.

I would highly recommend Duke to anyone who has property to sell.

Duke was successful in selling our home in Williamsburg during a difficulty market time. He used many outlets to market the home, and we were very satisfied with his work. In the end he arranged some matters that went above and beyond what a seller could normally expect from the Broker. I could certainly recommend him.

Wonderful attitude toward all of the frustrations that are a part of marketing a property his client truly was burdened by. Pricing to sell as quickly as possible, pay off the mortgage,cover all costs and enable seller to have a reasonable bit of cash back was not easy,but Duke was successful. He also boosted seller's morale when it was badly needed. As a Christian I was very thankful to be represented by Duke and highly recomend him as a realtor.

I've been in the Hospitality Industry for 24 years . The first time my wife and I met Duke we knew he was the one who will help us find our home. We really liked Duke so much we used him 3 times. We would not have it any other Way!!!

Duke is the most helpful realtor I have ever encountered. Once you become his client, you feel like you are his only client. With the sale of our old home, he gave amazing advice for how to stage the home without making it unlivable or causing us to pack everything up right away. He had the home cleaned for us so we didn't have to do it. He even took our dog on walks when people wanted to view the home last minute! On the purchasing side, he always made time to show us houses, even if it wasn't a very good time for him. He took the time to learn who we were as people and what we were looking for and narrowed the search down as he learned, not bothering to waste our time with homes that didn't meet as many of our criteria as possible. Once we sold our home and began to move out, he actually HELPED US MOVE, offering even more of his time and even part of his garage for storage until the purchase of the new home went through. Even now that the sale and purchase are complete, he answers our calls and emails with various follow up questions and issues we have. Once you use Duke as your realtor, you have someone you can count on to help you with all things home related. Throw in the fact that he has the most awesome assistant/co-realtor, Ms. Frankie, and you've got a real estate team that literally cannot be beat.

One rarely meets an individual like Mr. Duke in the world today. His template for success rests on a long-term strategy of cultivating trust, goodwill, and appreciation among his clients and colleagues. Beyond his manifest accomplishments as a realtor, it is clear to me that Mr. Duke personally enjoys the fruits of his method: he has created for himself a vast and mutually beneficial network of relationships throughout our region. He seems to genuinely enjoy drawing on and feeding into this web of relationships, nurturing an infectious positivity that reverberates among all connected to him. And yet his army of contacts is actually the least of what Mr. Duke provides: these relationships are founded on his own boundless capacity for investing time and energy in even the most mundane concerns of his clients. He has stood in the shower stall of our home before it was ours investigating the condition of a single light fixture. He has remained no less involved since the closing, returning again and again to help us organize various services (gardening, power-washing, painting...) and even to advise us on switch plates, hinges, and doorknobs. But do not be fooled: Mr. Duke is no softy. With a deep background representing both buyers and sellers, he knows precisely when, how, and where to strike in the interest of his clients. I could further enumerate instances in which Mr. Duke performed services far above and beyond reasonable expectations for a real estate agent, but hopefully it will suffice to say that Mr. Duke lives and breathes his work. You will feel it when you meet him.

It was a pleasure working with Duke to purchase our first home. He made the process very easy and fun. He was always available to answer our questions and didn't hesitate to show us dozens upon dozens of homes from Williamsburg, Newport News, and Hampton. I would recommend his services to any person looking to purchase a home. Duke maintained an open line of communication. He was very consistent and we never had to worry about his availability which put us at ease. His knowledge of the home buying process proved valuable for my wife and I. He listened to our needs and found us the house of our dreams.

Duke is everything you would want in a Real Estate Agent. From our first meeting, as we interviewed agents to help us sell our house, until the closing, Duke was their every step of the way with sound advice, enthusiasm, and a "can do" attitude. We live out of the area and initially had concerns about how we would address all the little things that would need to be done. No worries, Duke handled them all for us. Not only was Duke able to get us full asking price, but he did it in short order. He was knowledgable of the market and skillfully emphasized those unique things about our property that would help it to sell. A true salesman in the best sense of the word. Our only regret is we don't have another house to sell as the experience was actually that much fun we'd love to do it again. If we ever have the need to buy or sell in the Williamsburg area in the future there is no doubt we will pick up the phone and call Duke. If you have the need for an agent, either buying or selling, we would highly encourage you to do the same. You won't be disappointed.

As first time home buyers, we walked into the process of buying our first home with zero knowledge of the business and apprehension. Duke made our experience painless. There was no pressure to buy or make decisions, and at every turn he provided the answers that we needed. We believe that Duke does the right thing, keeping both seller and buyer in mind, making sure that all bases are covered and that all parties involved are respected and properly taken care of. Duke simply does things the right way. And it was much appreciated.

Duke was our listing agent for 2 properties and he did an excellent job in both transactions. Duke is professional, knowledgeable, and has excellent negotiating skills. He takes the time to thoroughly review contracts and develops a negotiating strategy that is best suited for the particular situation and parties involved. He does not take "shortcuts" but rather always ensures that all relevant areas/issues are addressed to ensure a smooth a transaction as possible, even if it may be less convenient to do so. My husband and I recommend him highly for buyers and sellers looking for a professional and reliable Realtor.

I had a very great experience working with Duke. The process felt very one to one. I like how he was able to take time away from his business to dedicate my interests in buying a home. He was on call 24/7 if any questions I needed would pop up. It was great that he knew the Williamsburg Area very well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is in the lookout in buying a new home for their family. Duke has a very awesome assistant, they make a really good team together. It was a pleasure to find my new home with his help. I could not thank him enough.

Duke Morisset was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and was very attentive to our needs. When we would call him, he either answered right away or would call you back in a very timely manner. Never had to wait very long to speak with him. He and his assistant Frankie was so much help in what is usually a very stressful time in a couple's life, but they made it a much better experience than anticipated. There isn't a person I wouldn't suggest this team to with their real estate needs. With utmost regards, Darrell and April Bush

Duke Morisset is a consummate professional. He was absolutely critical to our home purchase, and navigated us through the process with expertise. Duke works tirelessly for you, and we can't recommend him more highly.

We have had the opportunity to work with Duke on the purchase of two homes recently, and he has been truly professional at all times; going beyond the call of duty to ensure the transactions went smoothly. He has stayed involved from initial negotiations, inspections and closing, and even assisting with issues after moving in. Having been involved in many real estate transactions over our lifetimes we can say that Duke is by far the finest Realtor we have had the pleasure of working with. We would definitely utilize his services again should the need arise, and we would heartily recommend him to anyone.

Duke, Had what I coincided a monumental task as my realtor. He was faced with many obstacles in helping me rent and finally sale my second property located in Williamsburg , Virginia. He basically took on handling everything during the past 3 1/2 years after I retired from HII and relocated to St. Louis, Missiouri. He managed my property in such a professional manner, that in many cases, I never had to worry about issues or concerns that came up over this period, because he took care of things and I found out about the little concerns or issues after he had resolved them.... I think he is about the best realitor Caldwell Realitor has on staff. Thank you Duke for a job well done! Sincerely Dave Gray

I experienced and enjoyed Duke's above and beyond the norm trustworthiness and dedication during my last year in Williamsburg, VA. Duke helped me refurbish and clean up a run down house to make it worthy of potential clients' attention; Duke also helped with reliable, sound advice during a difficult time at that point in my life. Without Duke's dedication, I would never had been able to sell the house at the price it fetched. I consider Duke a great realty agent and a personal friend. Francoise M. Kerr
