What do Clients Say?

We made the decision to build a home and asked Irene to work with us and the builder. We were so impressed by her knowledge of the process and ability to help us with decisions. We also had her sell our home so that we could move just once. Best real estate decisions we’ve made!

Home Buyer and seller

Irene was recommended by a family member. My transaction with her (first time home buyer) was smooth, easy and FUN! She was excellent and gave me so much information all through the process. It was a great pleasure to work with her.

Home Buyer and seller

If all goes well during a real estate transaction, the realtor has what appears to be an “easy” job. However, when unanticipated complications arise, the measure of your realtor’s expertise becomes critically important. In my husband’s and my experience, Irene salvaged our purchase transaction, when, what looked to be an insurmountable obstacle developed only 3 days before closing. Irene communicated with all parties, including bank and legal representatives, quickly, efficiently, and in an exceedingly competent manner. She proposed a bridge resolution that permitted the matter to be resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. Irene’s professionalism and experience in the real estate market distinguish her among her peers, and my husband and I highly recommend her as a realtor who provides exemplary service.

Home Buyer

I was referred to Irene nearly two years before we purchased our home. She was able to interpret the needs of our family and filter the homes available so that our visits were as productive as possible, including door-to-door service from the Raleigh-Durham airport. We disrupted Irene’s Memorial Day weekend to look at some listings, and she even stopped at McDonalds to refuel our kids!

Home Seller and Buyer

We chose Irene because we knew her reputation in the community. What stands out most for us was her willingness to go above and beyond the role of a realtor. Excellent customer service.

About Irene

Expertise, trust, and genuine care are the hallmarks of my service. I consider myself an intuitive and energetic Realtor who fully engages with my clients and their specific needs; I know that buying and selling a home can be challenging and so I always adjust my strategies to match each client’s unique style and objectives. My knack for listening carefully makes me especially attentive to your goals: clients say that I really make them feel understood and never rush them, instead I encourage you to move at your own pace. A savvy negotiator, I also knows when the time is right to be fierce in my efforts to get my clients the deal they deserve.  An expert in the Raleigh market, I have also worked extensively inside Wake Forest, Cary, Apex and in downtown Raleigh, also known as “Inside the Beltline”. My clientele and their properties are just as varied: I have experience with everything from condominiums to new construction homes to luxury estates. Having such broad knowledge allows me to take my clients wherever they want to go and to stay with them as they grow.  As a trusted long-term partner for my clients, I enjoy developing new relationships just as much as deepening old ones. I celebrate wholeheartedly with my clients when they reach their goal, but I am still there to support and advise long after the transaction has been completed. For me, true service begins with care and building on relationships that last.  Irene lives in the expanding North Raleigh. She believes that home is where life happens, and can often be found hosting gatherings that bring together her big extended family and eclectic group of friends—with Irene, there’s always something to celebrate!
