Real Estate Advisor at Debbie VanHorn & Co.
In my mind I’m gone to Carolina” - these famous lyrics, sung by James Taylor, echoed the walls of my home growing up. I was raised on Long Island and, as a kid, I spent every possible moment outside playing sports, riding my bike, and surfing at the beach. Turns out not a whole lot has changed since then, although the competitive sports teams turned into adult rec leagues, the bike is now a tandem I ride with my wife and dropping into the next wave has been replaced with sipping on a local brew at the lakes.
While attending college, I had started working part-time with several local tradesmen. From landscaping to carpentry, I was able to learn the skills of basic construction and maintenance. After graduating college with an AS in Accounting and BS in Finance, I became involved in managing a rental property while simultaneously renovating the basement into a 2-bedroom apartment. This is where my interest in real estate turned into a passion, which later turned into a career. All these skills have made me a well-rounded agent, better serving my clients in every way.
Hearing that song now simply confirms that moving to North Carolina was the best decision I could have made, both personally and professionally. The Triangle area has been a top location for all types of industries, setting the stage for continued growth for decades to come. With the opportunity for professional growth, mixed with a focus on lifestyle, I feel this area is a place that offers quality of life and balance. Whether filling free time by biking on the 100+ miles of Greenway trails, strolling through one of the area’s 200+ parks, or indulging in one of the many restaurants/breweries this area has to offer, I am grateful to call North Carolina home.
