Our Why

Kirk Edwards - "Spent most of my adult life serving our country working all over this globe for over twenty years. Now looking for a slower pace in life and taking the time to smell the roses so to speak, and be closer to home. I have been a realtor in the area since 2005 after leaving the Army. I have been serving veterans and active duty and our friends and family here in the Historical Triangle and all surrounding areas. Being an Army Veteran myself, I can understand the challenges that our military face during relocation and ease the process and stress during such trying times." 

Melissa Edwards - “Before becoming a full-time Realtor, I worked as a Paralegal for twenty years. – processing real estate closings and as A licensed Title Insurance Agent underwriting title insurance. There I gained a full understanding of the mortgage process, closing process, and understanding titles. So instead of staying in the legal realm, I chose real estate sales because I wanted to work with individuals and families – not just their paperwork. I use my real estate processing knowledge to protect my buyers from loan officers who offer misleading or sloppy services. Real estate sales was the right choice. From licensing in 2005 and becoming very familiar with the sales end, the journey has been swift and successful. I think this is due in part to my dedication to my clients and in part to my thirst for knowledge.”
