How To Buy a House in NC


I am not your typical Real Estate Agent.


Be honest - Have you cringed at the thought of having to talk with an agent?

I get it. I know the expectations people have when they begin working with an agent, I was there myself before I embarked on my Real Estate career 15 years ago.


Like most agents I got into the business because I like houses and I like helping people. But most agents don’t take it much further than that.


I do.


My job isn’t simply to help you buy or sell a house.

I believe you deserve Red Penguin service
while in addition giving you the clarity, peace-of-mind,
and confidence you need to move forward,


There’s a reason most of the people I have helped are either repeat clients or have been referred to me by someone I’ve previously helped.


It’s because years ago I realized that the most important thing I have is my reputation as a professional, and that my reputation is entirely built on my ability to earn trust and keep it.


When a former client sends a friend, a family member, or a colleague my way, I understand that, in many ways, they are putting their own reputation on the line. I strive to make that decision incredibly easy.


Because my goal isn’t just to help you buy or sell a home. It is much more than that, it’s to work alongside you in such a way that you’d trust me to help your best friend do the same.
