Grist Realty

Above and Beyond

Unprecedented Opportunity

Census data shows that Wake County is growing by about 64 people every day, and that kind of growth is putting extreme demand on the Triangle real estate market. There has never been a better time to sell, and there has never been a better time to buy.


Our Mission Statement

Our clients expect their real estate agent to be an asset - a resource that ensures a successful transaction. The dynamic team at Grist Realty strives to be just that with the mission statement of helping our clients make smart decisions.

Let's discuss your real estate goals and develop a plan to achieve them. We value the opportunity to be part of your success. Get in touch with us to set up a consultation, or use the contact form at the bottom of this page to enquire whether our services are right for you.

Forget about Zillow and Triangle area inventory is managed by the Triangle Multiple Listing Service and its Realtor members exclusively. Get access to the full database through Grist Realty by downloading the Homespotter app from your app store. Mark homes as "favorites" and share them with us by chat for more info or questions, it works via text.

Be warned, it's addicting!


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 our guidance you will be a better buyer.    


Our team has lived in the Triangle through the last few decades of growth and expansion. We are locality experts and will 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 our 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 us 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, we 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. We have a comprehensive list of trusted vendors that will take care of you in the most professional manner.


My philosophy towards agency is simple. I treat my clients with the same level of skill, diligence, and communication that I would expect from someone else. Fortunately for my clients, I have very high expectations.
— Hugh Grist, owner
