I'm very close with my niece, Zoie. Newly married and now pregnant with her first child. she made a decision that she wanted to move to North Carolina from Colorado.
Thrilled with the news (now I'll get to see her more often), I suggested that she needed to look into the Raleigh area.
Since Raleigh is a growing area which ranks number 1 in many categories within North Carolina cities, I thought it was a perfect fit.
I immediately contacted my friend, Craig Rutman, who kept us informed of the market.
She also spoke with Nevin Williams, regarding financing options.
A mutual decision was made for her to rent for a year first. This will also give her an opportunity to get a good feel of this huge area called Raleigh, to determine exactly which area will be right for a purchase next year.
On Monday, February 15th, my husband and I, with my niece and her husband, gathered to the Apex/Cary area to meet with Craig and search for a rental.
Craig did a tremendous job and "went to bat" for her, (as he did for the Yankees in the 2009 World Series).
Tonight, she secured her favorite home that she saw on Monday.
Her rental will begin on April 1st.
Thank you Craig! I appreciate all your hard work!
It was great to finally meet you in person!
Going to the Raleigh area this week, also gave us a chance to see our long time friends Stan & Sarah, who moved about 12 years ago from NJ to Durham.
