News about our team: 

Jen is happy that Mother Nature has decided to give us April sunshine instead of April showers.  Jen and her husband have been taking many walks with their old dog, Clyde, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.  Jen loves this time of year when the birds are extra chirpy and the Dogwoods, Cherry Blossoms and Tulip trees are all blooming.  Jen’s oldest is trying something new this year – track! It has been fun for Jen to attend the meets and watch her daughter grow in this sport.

Jason  had a nice March! He and his wife had family visit them in Raleigh, and they also went out of town to visit family for a weekend. Outside of that, he has been staying busy with real estate, teaching, playing soccer and starting to put together the nursery for their baby girl, who is on the way July 1st!

Sharon  had a great March and is super excited to see spring arrive in North Carolina. She was able to take a couple of road trips to Asheville to see her old friend Dan and to tour Western Carolina University, where her son Sam will be attending college in the fall. It was great to get to the mountains! She has also been enjoying seeing Sam’s percussion ensemble – Alchemy of Carolina Gold – perform their new show. She spent some time with her son Ryan while he was home from school on spring break. She and Randy are looking forward to the warmer weather and enjoying time in their new camper exploring North Carolina’s campgrounds, beaches and lakes!

March was great for Erika. A few days of warm weather brightens the spirit! All the kids are well. Jesse arrived in Thailand and got to put his feet on dry land for a few days after 60 days underway.

Hunter  had an excellent March! Aside from enjoying the outdoors when the weather was nice, he got to spend great time with his family. He celebrated his younger brother’s birthday and also is excited to see his younger brother play in the spring game for NC State football!

Welcome Christa to our team! Christa is very excited to hit the ground running and March was a very successful month for her! She is looking forward to warmer weather and spending more time outdoors.

Her daughter, Kimora, is 13 years old and plays club and school soccer. They are both glad that the season has started again. Christa looks forward to helping buyers and sellers make their real estate goals a reality!
