What's There To Know About Me:
Hello! I'm Leesa Finley, the Wake Forest NC House Chick, and I specialize in Real Estate in the Wake Forest NC and Northern Wake County area. I am a licensed and practicing Realtor® and I am the Owner and Broker-In-Charge of R.E.D. Properties which is a small independent firm with dynamic Realtors® specializing in all areas of Wake, Granville, Johnston, Franklin, Orange and Durham Counties, North Carolina.
While I am well-versed on the entire Triangle area I like to focus on the area that I love and know best - WAKE FOREST, NC. While you will obviously find homes for sale in the Wake Forest NC area via my website and blogs what you may not know is that I will take you on a journey through this Historic town by way of blog posts, educational pieces, pictures and stories.
A little personal information about me: I am lucky enough to be married to the man of my dreams and we have an incredible son, Liam, who you will most certainly hear about from time to time on the various blogs! Sorry, I am a mom and I can't help it! To complete our family we have a 104lb Golden Retriever and no, HE IS NOT FAT! He is TALL! Our vet has said that he refuses to ever guesstimate weight again after him. We live in Wake Forest NC and have now for over 10 years. We have watched this town grow beyond belief. I remember when it was first suggested to look this way and I cringed and said "No WAY!" At the time, I felt it was "too far" out. My how times have changed! We have watched this town grow in leaps and bounds but have been amazed every step of the way how the town planners have managed to maintain it's small town charm and keep its Historic Downtown District vibrant! Kudos to them! The town planners are always forthcoming with their plans and the public is invited to the meetings - they want our input - it's OUR town!
So, sit back and enjoy! If you currently live in Wake Forest, NC and have information that you would like to get out please do not hesitate to let me know - I would be happy to help in any way that I can. I am also ALWAYS looking for new business owners to interview, restaurant reviews, news and events - feel free - email me!
I specialize in Wake Forest NC properties. I live, work and play in Wake Forest NC so I have the advantage of knowing this market inside and out! I drive these communities everyday in Wake Forest NC and I am familiar with which homes are available at any given moment. I shop in the local businesses and network on a daily basis with the owners of these businesses. My son attends school in Wake Forest NC so I know what the schools are like. My husband volunteer coaches for sports teams - I know the Parks in the area. It just makes sense to use a Realtor® that is intimately famliar with an area whether you are buying OR selling! I know where the dog parks are, the best coffee shops, the better bagels in town, the shop to get the most unique gift, the best gelato, top rated track-out camps, good gas prices, sought after restaurants and SO MUCH MORE!
