With small children in my household - I'm everywhere there is a playset!
What features are today's buyers most excited about?
A majority of the clients I've worked with focus on the flow of the house above all else. As new construction evolves to fit today's lifestyles - people are more and more excited about it.

What is your favorite place to eat in the Triangle?
Poole's, no contest.
