Having lived here forever, I can certainly attest to what a great place the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area is to live, and that includes Chatham County and Durham. I grew up along the high banks of Morgan Creek and the UNC Botanical Garden. My father was a Professor at the UNC Business School and my Mom worked in the ticket office at Carmichael Auditorium (the old Dean Dome) and then the Dean Dome (thanks for all those great tix Mom!). Over the years, I’ve spent time living in town, on the fringes, and in the country, and loved them all for their different lifestyle experiences.

From my days attending public school & Durham Academy, to those at UNC and as a professional, it has been a fantastic ride. I’ve always had a penchant for the surrounding real estate and I’ve spent many weekends driving around the area checking out the latest new homes and developments and keeping up with what’s happening in the older neighborhoods.

If you are into golf (everywhere), skiing (hey, its not Vail, but you can get a fix), yoga (several great centers), working out (several gyms and the great outdoors), charity work ( I do Relay for Life ) or just meeting good people, this is the place.

I came to real estate after spending the first part of my professional life as a sales engineer with a telecom company in the Research Triangle Park, and then as the General Partner of private stock and currency trading enterprises. Many years of successful but solitary days at my computer left me feeling that I was missing something, despite the heady and exciting nature of trading.

That’s where Franklin Street Realty and you come in! The best realty company in town, and you, the best client I could have. Give me a call and let me help you through the process of buying or selling a home, lot, or acreage. I will do everything I can to make it an enjoyable, low stress experience for you.
