The Hunt For Homes Story

At Hunt for Homes, we’re here to be your guide, first and foremost.

 

Whether you work directly with me or a member of my team, everything we do is about making you feel comfortable with the process and confident that you’re being taken care of in every way. You’re going to live in so many homes throughout your life, so this isn’t about one sale or one listing. We see this is about building a relationship where we take excellent care of you before, during, and after you have real estate needs.

 

Like you, I once was a new buyer, and a new seller, and even a new broker in the world of real estate. So I understand what you’re facing and how you’re feeling. More than 13 years ago, I jumped into this career as a single mom. I was a psychology major, so my background was in people – not real estate. So it was an outside the box choice for me – one that challenged me at every turn. But it was my daughter who said – hey you can do this. And I didn’t give up.

 

Step after step – I passed my first class, and then the state exam, both on the first try. I went on to build a successful career across several NC triangle real estate firms including large franchise and independent agencies, such as Linda Craft and Team, Remax, Coldwell Banker HPW, and Smart Choice Realty.

 

After developing a decade of expertise across marketing, negotiation, and more, I founded Hunt for Homes in 2016 as a more personal kind of realty practice. Your dream for your home is our passion. Whether it’s our 1% listings or our team mandate to put your interests above our bottom lines, we are committed to you and your needs for the long haul.

 

Across my career, I’ve closed more than 500 transactions, but that’s not what defines success to me. What matters most to me is you and all the first-time home buyers, the couples relocating, and the families finding their forever homes. It’s about all the people who still come by and say “hi” and the relationships I get to build and grow along the way.

 

I’ve created a small firm to protect those relationships and to continue to be a proudly referral-driven company. Because it’s time that more brokers understand that it’s not about numbers – it’s about people. It’s about family and it’s about new chapters.

 

I love what we do at Hunt for Homes because it’s about getting to know you and helping you to the best of our ability. Transactions, numbers, all of that aside – if we’ve made your life a little easier and your home some place you love to be – that’s the kind of success we always hope to give you.

How does Hunt for Homes

save our clients so much money?

 

Hunt for Homes offers Full Service and only charges 1% of the purchase price to sellers, listing their home plus the buyer agent commission, typically 2.4% which equals 3.4% total commission paid by the seller as opposed to 6% total commission (3.6% to listing agent plus 2.4% to buyers agent) that other Brokerage Firms charge. Here are a few examples:

*** Please note all commissions in North Carolina are negotiable!

***Commission rate will be 1% or 1000, whichever is greater.”
