Areas of Expertise


Finding the right home can be challenging, and expertly negotiating the details of your offer, repairs, and closing takes know-how. The Triangle real estate market heavily favors the seller but with my guidance you will be a better buyer.    


I’ve lived in the Triangle through the last few decades of growth and expansion. That makes me a locality expert, and I can help you connect to the Triangle in a way that is tailored to your lifestyle interests and needs.


You need to know what it will take to competitively position your home for sale in the market. Pricing, repairs, and timing are critical elements of that multiple-offers-on-day-one sale and my long experience with buyers will be your secret weapon.


Most professionally-rented properties are listed on MLS just like properties for sale and sometimes lease terms can be negotiated. Even most apartment management companies will work with me to help facilitate tours and terms.


Our market is starved for inventory so if you've got the cash, flipping is a great short-term investment. Whether your scope is large scale or small scale, I will help you find neighborhoods that are ripe to provide return on your investment.

Vendor services

Renovations, repairs, and maintenance are an ongoing but manageable part of home ownership. I have a comprehensive list of trusted vendors that will take care of you in the most professional manner.
