I doubt anyone's first career is in real estate, unless family gives them the job. I went to Wake Forest University, a family tradition, and played tennis there for 4 years. I was to be a great teacher and writer, but the English Department jealously pointed out that I could earn a living teaching and playing outdoors in shorts. I was one of those "journeymen" pros on Tour, eventually landing as Head Pro at the Chapel Hill Tennis Club in the late 70's. Ever had 700 bosses? It's too many. (I'm still a member). Local real estate visionary discovers that local Tennis Pro got his real estate broker's license over the winter and bingo … I had a new job.
That was 1983. I have never regretted it. Realtors in Chapel Hill are a bit different. It's kind of like the "waiter with a PhD" syndrome. I don't feel like I am selling anything. I have loved living in Chapel Hill and Carrboro for so long that it's more like introducing folks to a lifestyle that I am excited about and amazed by every day. There is very little difference in the joy people experience when they find the house they are going to buy and the thrill they get from finally hitting 3 balls in a row over the net, and realizing that it's not a fluke. You never tire of helping people find that feeling.
Call me if you need sources for contractors, tennis, golf, bikes, running shoes, restaurant tips in general. I allegedly know a lot about commercial real estate on Franklin and downtown Chapel Hll and Carrboro generally.
Oh yeah, I'm the Broker in Charge so if there's a problem I guess I'm the guy you get to call.
