Get To Know

Rae Chavez

I was born and raised in a small town in New Zealand. I have a science background and spent my early years working in microbiology (medical, veterinary and food) and biotechnology fields. I traveled extensively before settling in Durham, NC - home for the last 20 years. I developed an interest in real estate first as a homeowner, then investor and renovator, before moving into a full time career in real estate where I can put my local knowledge and experience to work for you. I live in Durham County with my son, husband, two cats, and a dog.

Professionally, I am a licensed REALTOR®. I specialize in representing my clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property within DURHAM and surrounding areas. I truly love this area and pride myself on my knowledge of active properties, current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.

I am a customer driven REALTOR dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I will put my 10 years of real estate expertise to work for you!
