Welcome to Raleigh

Home to the Carolina Hurricanes and NC State University, this North Carolina capital city is often voted one of America’s best places to live.
Considered one of the fastest-growing cities in America — and rated among the country’s happiest places to live — Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, offers enormous variety to potential buyers.
Filled with a mix of high-rise condominiums, townhomes and brownstones, as well as architecturally diverse Queen Anne and Victorian homes, this city is characterized by its wealth of distinctive neighborhoods.
In the downtown corridor, you’ll find newly constructed glass-and-steel condos at PNC Plaza and repurposed living spaces at The Hudson, a former department store and The Cotton Mill, a former textile mill. Encircling downtown is Historic Oakwood, where homes date back to the 1880s, and Mordecai, on the northeast corner of downtown, with its 1920s and ‘30s bungalows, all within walking distance to some of Raleigh’s hottest Person Street restaurants.
Glenwood-Brooklyn, composed of streets named for American presidents, boasts 100-year-old homes and is within walking distance of the Glenwood South dining and nightlife district. Cameron Park, punctuated by tree-lined streets and opulent homes, is deeply rooted in Raleigh history while Boylan Heights, which also traces its roots to the 1920s and ‘30s, offers an abundance of bungalows and Craftsman-style homes.
Inside the “beltline” (an unofficial real estate loop formed by I-440 to the West, North and East, and I-40 to the S), you’ll find the Triangle’s most prime real estate. Hayes Barton, home to some of the most influential and storied families in Raleigh, features gorgeous all-brick traditionals and multi-million-dollar gated mansions, while Five Points, Country Club Hills, Budleigh, Anderson Heights, Drewry Hills, and the University district each offer their own distinctive “vibe” and community within a community.
Outside the Beltline, we find North Hills, Midtown, North Ridge and Umstead Park. Raleigh has a little bit of everything and neighborhoods to fit every budget.
