Raleigh named one of the Best Places For Business/Careers 2013

Have you figured it out yet?

The Triangle Area is one of the best places to live!

Article after article, poll after poll Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Holly Springs and the rest of the Triangle area continues to make it to the top of lists of places to work, live and play.

The latest is an article in Forbes titled "Best Places For Business and Careers 2013" http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mli45eegfe/3-raleigh-n-c/

and this is article comes out shortly after Holly Springs was named by Bloomsburg as the "Best Places to Raise Kids 2013"  http://images.businessweek.com/slideshows/2012-12-17/the-best-places-to-raise-kids-2013#slide34

While these are two recent examples of how our area has received great press, there are plenty more to choose from both recently and over the past several years. 

So to everyone who is looking for a new place to live, I would say that there is no better place than the Triangle and to all of you that are already here....Thank you for making this place so great!

Homesnap is an amazing app that allows you to get information about a home including sales info and value estimates by simply taking a picture of the home. It is a great way to search for homes on the go and is perfect for homebuyers, sellers, Realtors, and anyone else who is curious about a property. I have told everyone I know about this app and they are all amazed at the info they get once they take a picture of a home.

HelloFax - HelloSign - Goodbye Printer

I have been using hellofax for over six months now and it is truly awesome!

With hellofax and hellosign you can send and receive documents electronically and you can also electronically sign them prior to sending and/or request signatures from your recipients. 

Ok, I know that this sounds similar to other technologies, but this one allows you to integrate all your incoming doc's with your Google drive account or your dropbox account. While other services have bits and pieces of all of the above technology, you have everything you need through one amazing technology and in my opinion, you can't beat the price. 

I have quietly told everyone about hellofax over that past few months, but now they have gone one step further with their amazing technology and I felt like I needed everyone to know that this is a must have.

Now, you can actually receive documents into your GMail account and at the bottom where you see the attachment, you can sign them immediately. You will have the same options to "view" or "download", but you will now have an option that says "sign". 

Here is the video explaining the GMail Integration:

Triangle Home Sales - 1st Quarter 2013

All signs are pointing towards an increase in home prices. Watch the video below provided by the Triangle MLS which re-caps the 1st quarter of 2013. The Raleigh NC Real Estate Market continues to get positive national exposure as one of the best places to live, work, and play. There is no surprise that as a result, we are seeing increased showings, increased pending sales, increased closed sales and a decrease in inventory. Typically when we see an increase in home sale activity and a shrinking pool of available homes for sale, the next thing we see is an increase in home prices.

Buffalo Wild Wings Grand Opening Holly Springs NC

 

Attention Buffalo Wing Fans in Holly Springs!

I am always excited to see new stores open in Holly Springs and just the past few weeks I have seen Target, Pier One, Dicks Sporting Goods, and Petco open their doors for the first time. Most of these stores had grand opening celebrations that included giveaways and exclusive sales. While I am sure these giveaways were fantastic, none have peaked my interest like the one coming up on Monday March 25th at Buffalo Wild Wings. If you are one of the first 100 customers at their new Holly Springs location, then you will win free wings....not just that day, not for a week, not for a month, but FOR A YEAR! That's right; Buffalo Wild Wings has announced that they intend to give away free wings for a year to the first 100 customers at the new Holly Springs location. Being a huge fan of wings myself, there is a good chance you will see me camped out in front of the Buffalo Wild Wings on Monday hoping to make the cut. Here is the grand opening announcement from the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce that includes the free wing giveaway from the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Holly Springs. http://www.hollyspringschamber.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=calendar.calDetail&event_id=1032
