I hear alot of people that move to the area or visit the Raleigh / Durham area for the first time say that it doesn't feel like a large metropolitan area. I like to respond to that by saying the developers of the Triangle have done a great job in building the city around nature rather destroying nature, building, and then planting it all back.
The American Tobacco Trail is one of best hidden gems that make the Triangle area such a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. The 22+ mile trail that works it way through 3 counties (Durham, Chatham and Wake County). Known as a rails to trails project because it follows the originally developed path for the old New Hope Valley Railroad, visitors can enjoy walking, running, biking, and in the southern section near Apex, you can also enjoy horseback riding.......you provide the horse. :)
The ATT is getting closer to completion as a foot bridge is under construction to go over I-40 at The Streets of SouthPoint. Once complete, you will be able to take the trail from its southern starting point in Apex (New Hill/Olive Chapel Rd) all the way to its northern end near the Durham Bulls Ballpark in downtown Durham.
Get out this weekend, hit the trail, enjoy mother nature and get to living the Good Life.

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
"Thank you for going above and beyond my expectations. You worked so hard for me. The day we saw 29 properties will always be one to remember. Through it all you put up with my indecision and craziness. However, thanks to your efforts and diligence Peter, I now have the home of my dreams. I cannot thank you enough. "
