Living in The Modern South
It's our city. Come live in it.
My family has been in Durham for 3 generations. My great Uncles Cary and Deck Holland opened Holland Brothers Furniture in 1918 in Durham, on Main Street. They operated their store for 60 years, and they would not recognize the city now!
In 2008, after 30 years raising two sons with my wife and working as a financial advisor at First Citizens Bank in Raleigh, I retired. My love for real estate spurred me to pursue a NC Appraiser's License while earning my license as a NC Real Estate Broker. I now dedicate my time to working with buyers and sellers of residential property in NC, with a special focus on the Durham area I love so much.
As I child in the Midwest, I was creative. Drawing and imagining is what I did - and went to NYC to do - and still do in NC! But with two realtor parents, real estate was a slow simmer as well.
Today, as a residential interior designer and realtor in Durham, the merge of services feels just right as I help sellers create an environment to draw their ideal buyer. My nest is in a historical downtown Durham tobacco loft, with my two teenagers and cat. I'm proudly affiliated with New Durham Realty, because I love all that is Durham after 17 years here. And to read about my designing life, visit Heather Garrett Interior Design. Here's to making the world more beautiful!
The Move, the excitement, the hassle, the exhilaration of a new start, LIFE! My family moved to the triangle seeking many things in 2018. We wanted it all, a beautiful place to live, a diverse community, a progressive culture, great schools for our kids, a focus on outdoor lifestyle and above all else to feel that sense of community. Our efforts paid off, we found everything we could want and more. I call the Triangle area home, my family and I opened ourselves up to Durham and Durham opened its arms to us, we found our place, WE FOUND OUR HOME!
I love facilitating community togetherness through sports, community activities, and supporting local businesses. I've put my heart into networking to find people of like and different minds that want to share the experience of life. Having met doctors, educators, entrepreneurs, local leaders, mothers and fathers, my local connections span the triangle area from in and around downtown Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill to the Hillsborough area, Cary and Apex.
Having learned from a diverse group of local professionals gives me great confidence that I can make your experience rewarding. There is no one size fits all in real estate, your needs are specific to you. Whether it’s an investment property, a downtown apartment, a single family home, condo, or land, I can help guide you through the experience to make sure it’s everything you want it to be. Everyone’s needs are different, whether you know what you want or could use a little/ lot of help, what I enjoy doing the most is listening, understanding, and helping others make sound decisions for their life needs. I will be there with you from the beginning until long after your purchase has been finalized.
I have lived in Alamance County all my life and I love this area. I enjoy fishing and anything outdoors. I have been in consultative sales for years and appreciate every aspect of it...from getting to know my clients to helping them achieve their goals. I thoroughly enjoy working with people! I like looking at different homes and doing projects related to home improvement. I am inspired by the fact that I can help someone find the home of their dreams or sell their home quickly. Let me put my local knowledge to work for you.
