Realtor | Owner

As a successful Real Estate investor I decided to take it to the next level and obtain my Real Estate License.  When I was a client going through the process of purchasing and selling properties I learned a great deal about what not to do and how I could better serve clients.  Having been a Division I Coach for 20 years to say I am competitive is an understatement.  I do an amazing job for my clients because for me it is all about them winning!  I believe that energy largely contributes to my success as a Real Estate Broker and now the owner of my own firm. I’ve lived in 6 different states so yes,  I  know what is entailed in relocating and all of the important details that come along with it – schools, places of worship, shopping.   My first year as a broker I was Rookie of the year for the the company with which I was affiliated.  From that point on, one relationship at a time, my success has grown.

The old saying “home is where the heart is” reigns true for me as every aspect of my life – both career and personal – have led me down the path to helping others become home owners.

Originally from New Jersey, I moved to the Carolinas over 30 years ago where I raised my two children. Based initially in a small southern town, I used my creative and business skills to improve the homes of clients. By the time I moved to Charlotte, I had officially launched a company which specialized in interior and organizational design. My husband is a general contractor so it seemed only natural to obtain my real estate license in 2005 and soon after the children graduated from college (UNC and NC State), we relocated to Michigan where we developed and sold a wide range of real estate.

Alas, the heart called us home to the Carolinas where we live now live in Cary. I am the President of my HOA, love yoga, the beach, and believe it or not – hard work. My background in home design and construction and my knowledge of North Carolina as a whole has equipped me to help my clients find the home of their dreams. I look forward to putting my heart into your next real estate adventure.

A zest for life, faith, family, and travel I have a passion for customer service in real estate. Through numerous moves as a military family, life has prepared me for handling the unexpected and maintaining a sense of humor and joy in helping others.  I have traveled and lived extensively throughout the Southeastern USA from Connecticut to Louisiana and most points in between. Working in ministry for over 20 years as the executive assistant to my congregation’s senior leader, this experience has helped to shape my character in faithfulness, loyalty, and a desire to serve others.   Together with my husband, we have raised three grown children and two precious grandchildren. Relocating to Cary more than ten years ago I have witnessed first hand the tremendous growth in the community. It is my pleasure to assist you in locating the ideal property to meet your housing needs: dream home, first time home buyer or your forever home, no one will work harder to help meet your goals.  It is my pleasure to assist you.

Growing up in Greenville, NC I am proud to be a native North Carolinian, moving to Raleigh in 1987 to attend NC State University.  During my four
years there I grew to love the area so much and decided to make The Triangle my home.  I am the proud wife of Todd Hunt, Brigadier General in the North Carolina Army National Guard.  Together we have two sons, both of which were educated in the award winning Wake County Schools.  
I’ve been licensed to practice Real Estate since 2006, enjoying the challenge of helping families find their forever home.    
In my spare time I love attending my boys’ sporting events, playing tennis and walking my dogs – Rudy & Henry – in one of the many wonderful trails,
parks and walking paths this area has to offer!

After investing in Real Estate for decades in New York, I realized that I wanted something more. My desire was to help others achieve their Real Estate dreams. In 2011, I became a Licensed Realtor and hit the ground running. Why Joseph Bailey? I’ve never had the opportunity to work within a Company where “All”, exhibit the same philosophy. The competitive nature and true desire for every client to obtain their goal, whether it be a primary residence or an investment home, is what brought me to Joseph Bailey. I know that every client comes with their own story and that story matters. I’m here to ensure that your story has a happy ending. Lets walk your next Real Estate path together!

Growing up in Lancaster, PA I came to love the idea of community. Having relocated to the Triangle more than a decade ago, I now feel like a North Carolinian, and proud to be. Working as a business teacher at Broughton Magnate HS in Raleigh, I have developed a deeper understanding of what our community needs from the housing market here, and I make it my mission to not only educate our community, but also build it home by home. I love real estate, but I wouldn’t say it’s my passion. My real passion is my love for this community and a desire to see it thrive, grow, and to ensure all have an opportunity to own a home.

In my few “off hours” I spend time playing with my daughter, teaching her everything I know about woodworking and design. My wife and I enjoy running together to clear our minds and our hearts, and that our entire region is filled with amazing running and multi-use trails makes our combined experience that much more of a rich experience.

Combining more than 20 years of work in global hospitality and corporate real estate acquisition, as well as a love of people, I believe I am uniquely positioned to help and serve my clients and community. Call or email today for a consultation on how I and Joseph Bailey Real Estate can serve you!
