Welcome to the Triangle! Real Estate

Nestled among the native long-leaf pines in the heart of the Tar Heel State lies a band of progressive, prosperous communities with a quality of life second to none.  We have a quality of life that has landed Raleigh and the family of communities that make up the Research Triangle region of North Carolina among the nation’s best places to live, start a business, raise a family, earn a world-class education and retire.

The Research Triangle, or The Triangle, as we like to call our area of North Carolina, gets its name from our geographic region anchored by North Carolina State University in Raleigh, Duke University in Durham and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill – three of the nation’s top research universities.

At the center of our region I Research Triangle Park, the nation’s largest planned research development community.  Here you will find some of the world’s largest corporations, as well as promising start-ups working side by side. 

Raleigh and its neighboring communities are centrally located both within North Carolina and along the East Coast and boast a thriving business community, active arts population and a quality of life that has consistently been ranked among the best in the country…but don’t take our word for it.

The Best Place to Live and Work in the Nation…the Best Business Climate…the Best Place in the U.S. for Educational Opportunities…these are just a few of the many national and international rankings that Raleigh and the Research Triangle have received from publications that include Money, Fortune and Time magazines. 

But we are about more than national rankings, recognition, prosperity and growth.  At the heart of these rankings, you’ll discover unique neighborhoods and a family of communities steeped in tradition and history with a rare blend of diverse people from every corner of the globe. 

Perhaps our best spokespeople are our residents. A recent survey showed an astounding 96 percent of newcomers said they would move to the area again if they had it to do all over.  And unlike most metro areas in the U.S., Raleigh and the Triangle have all the amenities of big city life without the high cost of living.
