Barry Burnette, CFO, Founders Council Member
As CFO for Triangle Real Estate Group, Barry Burnette delivers a wealth of talent. Barry has lived in the Raleigh/Durham area all of his life and has a true understanding for what makes this area so great. While attending North Carolina State, Barry majored in economics. Today, that knowledge serves him well as the CFO of Triangle Real Estate Group, where he is in charge of weekly financial reports.
Barry and his wife, Katherin, have three beautiful kids. In addition to his love for NC State football and basketball, Barry also has a passion for small business, particularly the micro-business market. "I firmly believe small business ownership is the best way to achieve a better life for your family. I love teaching and implementing this philosophy on a local level. Helping talented people acquire, operate, and be successful is what motivates me every morning," Barry says.
Involved in small business for more than 20 years, Barry has been involved in many aspects of a micro-size company, including management, finance, accounting, sales, customer service, and ownership. "I strongly believe in providing great customer service to my clients. After all, helping people is the essence of small business," Barry says.
Barry also works with Grayson Dare Homes, with a goal of crafting custom homes in established neighborhoods as much as possible. In fact, Grayson Dare Homes was born from the idea of providing a different homebuilding experience. After working with national and regional builders for almost 20 years, President David Vines sought a different path. It is the goal of Grayson Dare Homes to take the best purchasing and management philosophies from the manufacturer and meld those philosophies with the ability to completely customize a client's home. The result is homes that look as though they have always been a part of the neighborhood while embracing the philosophies of sustainable growth.
