Do you know much about the History of Durham, and how it's developed over the past 4 decades? I do! I'm a native of Durham, I've raised a family here - and I know what parts of Durham have "traditionally" been coveted for their great locations, and which ones are "up and coming!" I am uniquely tied to this area, and I bring that distinct knowledge of Durham, Hillsborough, Roxboro and Chapel Hill to help my clients find the perfect location for their new home, and to get the best price for the house in Durham they are selling!
I've sold HUNDREDs of homes over the past couple of decades, and often times, people know what they are looking for (maybe they need to accommodate an over sized Buffet they inherited, or need a backyard with lots of sun for gardens) but they simply don't have the time to preview 2,000 houses all over Durham to find "The One."
That's where I can help! Give me as much information as you can, and I'll try to match it. If you are looking for a well kept, 2000 square foot home in Durham, for less than $70,000 - I can also explain why you might be having trouble finding that "Dream House!" We'll set realistic expectations, based upon the current Durham real estate market conditions, and we will find the perfect home in Durham for you!
I am knowledgeable in the various loan products to assist you in securing the best financing possible for your situation. I enjoy working with 1st time home buyers, relocation clients, retirees and investors. I am familiar with the foreclosure & short sale process in selling or buying in today's market.
Search For Homes in Durham
The market is hot in Durham, low inventory, good number of buyers,low interest rates and affordable prices are keeping the market rolling. . Because the number of homes available (called Inventory) is so low, we are seeing multiple offers on a lot of homes! Be sure you have your pre-approval letter from your lender in hand...it could make the difference in not getting your offer accepted.
It makes sense. We've had 4 or 5 years of people just holding on to their house in Durham, even though it's not the right "size" for them not wanting to sell their home in Durham at the wrong time. Over time, the number of homes available to buy shrinks, and this "demand" will cause prices to start going up. If you 've been putting off a move, waiting for the "market to come back," NOW is a great time for us to talk!
Let me give you a "Veterans" perspective of what your home in Durham is valued at today, what you will need to do to compete, and let's develop a strategy together that will let you finally move on! Don't get caught up in the hype! Find out what the Real Estate Market in YOUR neighborhood looks like - because that's what really matters!

Home of the Durham Bulls Baseball Team, The Carolina Performing Arts Theater and the new Durham Performing Arts Center... Downtown Durham has really grown in the last 20 years! There are many craftsman style bungalows in Downtown Durham, with charm, and back alleys. Trinity Park, Duke Park, Old North Durham, Watts/Hillandale have the charming homes of yesteryear. There are several Condominium Projects in Downtown Durham and more to come. The American Tobacco Historic District has tons of events going on all the time! From Downtown towards the old Duke Campus, you will find Brightleaf Square, and a little further past that - Ninth Street. If you have not been to Ninth Street - and you are a "Foodie" (like us) you probably want to go check it out! Great Restaurants and cool shops there! The Ninth Street area has the Mill Houses that have been maintained/restored to keep the charm of the neighborhood thriving in these homes in Durham.
