My husband and I are planning a trip to the Triangle area in early June. We are thinking of relocating our family of 5 (3 elementary aged kids) from the San Francisco area. We are hoping to get some great realtor recommendations--specifically, if anyone has had a fun, productive time with a realtor who truly enjoys showing transplants around the many different neighborhoods, that would be great.

Also, should we try two different realtors--one for Cary/Apex/HS and one for Chapel Hill/Carrboro? Not sure just how large the area really is.

Thanks, and DM me with any helpful suggestions!

I'd personally would have a different agent for each area, as they are completely different markets. One is a rapidly growing sprawl with a huge amount of properties churning through the market, and the other is a restricted growth area with very limited options available at any given time.

Yes I would get two different agents just like you stated in your OP.

Yes, separate agents for different areas, and here's the reason: A realtor from say, Cary, may say he or she knows Chapel Hill, its different neighborhoods, and can find their way around. What they're not likely to know is what's going to be happening it Chapel Hill that's not visible yet. Do they know what's pending before town planning boards? What projects are in the works? What development plans the University has, etc.? The real value of a good real estate agent isn't just in finding a good house - it's having someone to work with who is intimately familiar with the community and really knows what's going on.
