Being a Realtor in the Greater Raleigh area offers me so
many advantages. I’m able to meet such
amazing people and really get to learn about their needs and wants. I get to tour through a plethora of homes
learning about the latest design and decorating trends. Being a Realtor also allows me to really focus
on what’s going on in my community and how it affects my largest investment- my
home! Over the past few weeks I’ve been
working with two different buyers who are looking for their next home in the
zip code that I live in. Both are looking in very different price ranges but
both have a variety of options available to them. It made me wonder, what’s
really out there in my zip code of 27614?
For starters, there
are currently 227 homes for sale in the 27614 area (not including an For Sale
The lowest priced home is an updated one Bedroom, 760 sq ft condo
listed for $95,000. It’s a top floor unit within walking distance to plenty of
shopping. It’s actually the only one bedroom home on the market in the area. Just down the road, you’ll find the highest
priced home in our zipcode. It’s a 10,487 sq ft home currently in the
foreclosure process with a list price of $1,800,000. Not a bad deal considering
it was purchased eight years ago for almost twice that amount! It offers an
elevator and pool, spa and waterfall. Homes
are taking about 89 days to sell and are selling at about 98% of their listed
So what does this mean for us North Raleigh homeowners? It
means we’ve all made wise investments and can feel confident that our zip code,
like so many others around the Greater Raleigh Area, will continue to
strengthen and prove it’s value through strong market performance.

When it comes to providing the utmost in personal service to his clients, Peter Kima is on the cutting edge. This family man's demanding work ethic was passed on from his parents. His mother, a first generation German-American, forged a new life in a strange country. His father, who has not missed a day of work since 1972, led by example. Peter does not rest until he's done everything in his power to help you achieve your goals. As a husband and a father, his understanding of the importance of a family's home is reflected in his every move.
When Peter is not helping one of his clients, he can be found volunteering his time running a charity Lobster Bingo event, cooking burgers at the local Fire Station to benefit the children in the community, delivering dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Wake County with his Kiwanis Club, collecting school supplies for the needy, or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. His favorite pastime, however, is spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cole (12) and Camden (9 going on 20!).
Peter has resided in Germany, California, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon and Vermont. Having lived in North Carolina for over 10 years, Peter refers to North Carolina as home. Don't underestimate the value of Peter's moving experience. He and his team understand the rigors involved in making a family move. Rely on that experience to help you.
I have been helping buyers in the Raleigh Real Estate market for over
"I recently relocated to Raleigh from Destin. Florida and was very fortunate to have Peter Kima as my real estate agent. After my first phone conversation with Peter, I was convinced that he would work aggressively on my behalf to find me a house that fit all the criteria I requested in a home. Peter got to work immediately and began sending me home listings to view prior to my trip to Raleigh.
Upon meeting Peter in Raleigh, I was very impressed with how organized and well prepared he was for our first day of house hunting. He made sure to keep my specific requirements in mind when choosing homes for me to view. Peter was very efficient and organized which was critical to me as I only had three days in order to find a home. I did find the perfect house and Peter worked diligently on my behalf from writing the offer to the closing. Since I was out of town, Peter arranged all of my inspections and made sure that all necessary repairs were made prior to my arrival in Raleigh.
I imagined it would be very difficult to coordinate all that goes into an out of state move but Peter made the entire process absolutely pain free! I would recommend Peter Kima to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate because he genuinely listens to his client's needs and goes above and beyond his duties as a real estate agent."
