Day to day I’m out showing and there isn’t much to show!  Add to that the stress of having to deal with REALTOR/Agents who don’t enter complete data into multiple listing; such as room dimensions or incorrect tax data and boy is it a struggle.

My promise to you…my team and I will take the time to properly represent your home in our marketing.  This includes but is not limited to entering proper tax, home owner association and directions to your home, (we know our right from our left.) We will go above and beyond and enter room sizes (not required) and the floor where rooms reside.  This is VERY important to  buyer clients; some folks need bedrooms, bathrooms and living space on specific floors.  Why not make their life easier and their agent’s life easier and supply complete, correct information?  We promise to do so with each and every listing.

So here’s some current market data….

The real estate market here in the Triangle heated up in 2014…

By the numbers 2014 vs. 2013


30,886 total sales

If you’ve been waiting for the market to rebound to sell, now might be the time.  Call me or email me. I’d be delighted to meet, generate a competitive market analysis and help you weigh your options.

You’ll hear it called by many different monikers; The Triangle, RDU, Research Triangle Region, RTP and then of course each of the distinctly different cities have different nicknames. The Triangle is comprised of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill as its foundation. Research Triangle Park grew out of the three pre-eminent universities in the region; NC State in Raleigh, Duke University in Durham and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill banding together to stem brain drain in the 1950’s and 1960’s. What happened boggles the mind; a world class, sprawling research and development campus and population that is, in simple terms, amazing.

Raleigh, the largest of the three communities is the state capital. It is also the largest Triangle city with 402,000 people. Durham follows with 262.751 and Chapel Hill is the smallest with 48,715. Each of the points of the Triangle is unique and distinctive and yet helps make up a far greater whole.

Raleigh offers a rather provincial Old South feel outside of downtown. The arts thrive in this city as does collegiate and professional sports. Raleigh is home to the Carolina Hurricanes a NHL franchise and truly the Triangle is nuts for hockey. This is a function of so many northern transplants. Raleigh offers acres upon acres of greenway for running, biking, hiking and walking and hundreds of acres of parks for outdoor living.

Durham is urban, trendy, edgy, fun, funky and a top food destination and Durham’s Performing Arts Center is rated one of the best in the nation. Here you can see first run Broadway shows on tour. Durham is home of the Durham Bulls baseball team made more famous by the movie “Bull Durham.” Durham has more active artists than any other community in North Carolina. Durham, the city of medicine, the Bull City also has more physicians per capita than anywhere else in the United States. Duke Medical Center has over 1000 patient beds and people come to the region from all over the world for first rate medical care.

Chapel Hill is the quintessential college town. The feel is friendly, liberal, accepting and forward looking. Chapel Hill offers a world famous hospital too, UNC Hospitals. Life in Chapel Hill centers on the University of North Carolina; the oldest public university in the United States and where tens of thousands of students attend school there. Chapel Hill is often referred to as the “Southern Part of Heaven” and the town like all of the other communities in the region has an abundance of highly acclaimed eating establishments.

Weather; our weather is temperate. We get four distinct seasons, winter is typically mild with little snow, spring is divine, summers are hot and humid and fall is divine.

Recreation; boat of Falls or Jordan Lakes, swim there, jet ski there, fish there too. Enjoy some of the best golf courses in the country. Walk our trails, ride our trails dip your feet in the Eno or Neuse Rivers. Come for a festival, we have them year round. Visit Durham Performing Arts Center or take in a basketball game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, The RBC Center, Reynolds Coliseum or The Smith Center. Anyone who’s been here for awhile realizes quickly that basketball gets into your blood and during March madness the atmosphere in the Triangle is electric. Then too, sip coffee in an outdoor café or visit the NC Museum of Art, the Ackland Museum of art or the Nasher in Durham.

Here you’ll find an enlightened and engaged population in touch with their past and eager for their future. Jobs are well paying and easy to find too.

Call me today to discuss the Triangle in depth and why you should consider calling it home. 919-608-2372

805 Baker Court Haw River North Carolina

This lovely custom home is located in the quiet hamlet of Haw River. This secluded property, nestled on 2.4 park like acres is just ten minutes to downtown Mebane, twenty minutes to Durham and Duke University and just about 35 minutes to Research Triangle Park.
805 Baker Court is well planned, well executed, well cared for and just an all around terrific property. The home has an air of sophistication yet feels comfortable and warm. The main level is adorned with nine foot ceilings, lots of heavy molding and extensive hardwood flooring. The kitchen with Granite counter tops has been beautifully updated and is open to the living room. Just steps away from the kitchen are a screened rear porch and an elegant formal dining room located at the “bay” at the front of the home.
A spacious “great room”, “family room”, “media room”, “gathering space” is located on the main level too. This functional, light filled space measures 20 feet by 24 feet and French doors open onto an elevated rear deck which is two tiered and overlooks a nicely sized swimming pool. There is an abundant amount of exterior living space here. Imagine the parties year round.
An informal service area joins the home to the attached side load oversized two car garage. There is attic storage above the garage and a large wired “shed” measuring 16×16 is just steps away. Why clutter the garage with lawn tools and storage?
Upstairs, also all hardwood flooring, are three bedrooms and the master suite is impressive. An ornate trey ceiling adds interesting architectural features and the “bay” makes for a comfortable, quiet sitting space. The master bath has been updated with new Granite counter tops and new fixtures. There is also a spacious walk in closet in the master suite.
