The Raleigh-based Luxury Home Marketing Group focused on homes in North Raleigh during their April gathering.
“This area of Wake County includes some of the most prestigious neighborhoods in our market,” said LHMG President Jill Rekuc. “Our meeting and tour focused on homes north of I-540, including the neighborhoods of The Moorlands, Crossmoor, Swan’s Mill, Devon and Wakefield. These communities are among the most dynamic in the Estate Home Marketplace, with increased interest & activity in home sales.”
LHMG Past President Linda Craft shared details of a luxury broker she shadowed in Austin Texas. Board members compared and contrasted methods used by a group similar to the Luxury Home Marketing Group.
The board reviewed a presentation by Denise Beatty of Towne Mortgage of the Carolinas (NMLS#512138), of an extended rate lock program to assist borrowers in securing a rate. “This is an ideal program for buyers who are building a new home,” said Beatty. “The program allows a rate-lock for up to 6 or 12 months and a float-down if the market warrants.”
Additionally, board members were proud to support a fundraiser for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), hosted by board member Kathy Beacham’s daughter, Shae.
April’s tour included the following homes: 1005 Salcomb Lane, Devon, Raleigh represented by Ida Terbet; 1213 Dorleath Court, Crossmoor, represented by Linda Craft; 1329 Caistor Lane, The Moorlands, Raleigh, represented by Kimberly Conroy; 12200 Lockhart Lane, Swan’s Mill, Raleigh, represented by Shawn Britt; 12416 Richmond Run Drive, Wakefield, Raleigh, represented by Kathy Beacham.
