Pine State Group
Buy - Sell - Invest
Pine State Property Group was born with a vision; keep things simple and be there for our clients. In the world of real estate, some agents, brokers, and teams often overlook these simple premises.
We've seen this first hand, from being part of and working with 'mega teams', to operating as busy individual brokers, and have found that through a smaller, client focused team approach, we are able to deliver unwavering service and expertise to our clients that is second to none, while sharing our individual knowledge and experiences with our clients.
From contract to close, we're involved in every transaction, and always a call, text, or email away. Whether this is your first real estate transaction or your 100th, we're here to help guide the way.
Born and raised in Raleigh, Jim has lived in the triangle area his entire life. Growing up in a family of general contractors, Jim has been around the construction and real estate industries since he was born. Jim got his Real Estate Brokers license in 2014 and has been active in the Triangle real estate market ever since both as an active agent & investor. Jim also has his North Carolina General Contractors License and owns a local home building, and renovation company that focuses on investment properties throughout the Raleigh area.
When he is not working, Jim spends his free time at home with his wife and four kids. He is active in the local community coaching kids sports, and enjoys playing golf and boating in his free time. When he is not at home in Fuquay Varina, he enjoys spending time at Lake Gaston and at the North Carolina coast.
Preston is what most would call a quintessential local. Born in Raleigh and raised in Apex, Preston has called Wake County home for almost 30 years. He studied business management at North Carolina State University (go pack!) and began his career in real estate shortly after graduation. Preston's philosophy is simple - a real estate transaction is one of the largest financial endeavor most people will engage in, and it should be treated as such. Whether selling your first home or diversifying your investment portfolio, Preston's knowledge of the local market and stalwart level of service can make all of the difference.
Outside of conventional residential sales, Preston has a notable knowledge and experience with distressed sales, off market properties, foreclosures, and bank owned properties. As a real estate investor himself, Preston has helped multiple clients find the right investment for them - from single family rehabs to large apartment complexes.
Preston enjoys spending time with his wife Cara and two young daughters at their home in Fuquay-Varina. When not working, you'll often find him at the golf course, at Carter Finley cheering on The Pack, or at the North Carolina coast.
