Here’s a MAP of the main areas:
There’s lots to see and do this coming weekend in Fuquay-Varina. All of us here at Front Porch Realty love our town and we love a good celebration, be sure and stop by our booth for some neat give-a-ways and to say “hi”!
Introducing Mary Pickard Photography. Mary is the photographer who takes most of the pictures for our Front Porch Realty website. As you can tell, Mary is passionate about what she does, is talented and has over 35 years experience. We love having her on our team!
Check out Mary’s website to find out more about her, view more of her work, and how to contact her directly.
Mary is local to both of our office locations and has been taking our new listing photos for years and so it made sense that we would call on her when we were ready to launch our new website earlier this year! Mary was pivotal in the creation of the “Our Towns” page and highlighting all that our wonderful towns have to offer. She’s always willing and ready on a moments notice to take our new listing photos as well photos of new businesses in town, so all can be added to our website quickly.

Front Porch Realty has hosted another extremely successful school supply drive for the Fall of 2018, and we didn’t do it alone! This year we invited ALL of the other local real estate offices in Fuquay-Varina to help us support our local schools.
Thank you to Legacy Partners Realty, Coldwell Banker HPW, The Abshure Realty Group, Century 21 Triangle Group and Ann Milton Realty for caring about our schools and helping us support them. Everyone collected buckets full of supplies, picked a local school and delivered them. A big shout out to everyone in our community who helped support our kids and schools by dropping off supplies at any of these real estate offices.
This is one of the reasons we love “Our Towns“!

Here is our 2nd Q 2018 snapshot of our local housing inventory. It’s no secret, we still don’t have enough houses to sell. According to our local Triangle MLS, housing inventory in the Triangle is down 3% from 2nd Q of 2017. Most markets in our end of Wake county are showing less than a 1 month supply. It’s a great time to make a move!
FRONT PORCH REALTY continues to grow and provide the residents of Fuquay-Varina and Holly Springs a LOCAL professional real estate firm to handle their real estate transactions. We love moving our residents into, and across town, and to show off all we have to offer.
We are here to help you, your relatives, co-workers, employees, and neighbors. Please consider Front Porch Realty as YOUR LOCAL real estate professionals!
