More about Raleigh and Triangle Area Real Estate
My partner in real estate is my wife, Marianne Howell Wright, 919-274-4365, and we operate Triangle Area Real Estate.
Raleigh is the major city in what is referred to as the Triangle Area, a North Carolina metropolitan area that includes several counties and numerous towns, each with its own flavor. I grew up in Raleigh and have lived in or near Raleigh most of my life, and work with our Raleigh Buyers. Marianne focuses on the western part of our area that includes Chapel Hill, Chatham County, Cary, Apex, and Holly Springs, but is available to be involved in any matter.
After finishing at UNC and a US Navy stint, I worked as a CPA for what is now Ernst and Young in Atlanta, and KPMG in Raleigh. Following that I was the Director of Internal Audit for Duke University, including the Medical Center. In about 1980 I decided to pursue a career in real estate, initially in shopping center leasing. I later moved into commercial and residential brokerage, and became involved in development and commercial construction. I continue to be the license qualifier for two general construction (building) companies, one of which has an unlimited license.
I work with my wife, Marianne Howell Wright who represents relocating buyers find the best home and neighborhood for them. My experience and knowledge of Raleigh it a great fit for clients interested in the Raleigh area and especially new construction.
I have been a fine art painter (as opposed to the kind that engage in hard work) for about 25 years . I enjoy fishing at the coast and in mountain streams, and I like Eastern NC barbecue (no red stuff). Being from the South, I don’t wear socks unless it’s really cold.
