Let's talk about where you want
to be. (And what we can do to
help get you there.)


Clayton Nell
Maintaining a common sense approach to valuing a home, and how you sell it, is in everybody’s best interests. The nice thing about Weaver Street Realty is that everyone seems to get that.


Blair Nell
Listening and hearing are not necessarily the same thing. I "hear" what my clients' priorities are and I do my best to help them achieve their goals.


Terri Turner
Broker & Business Manager
I love meeting new people and go out of my way to help them on their path, wherever it's headed. I am a firm believer in paying it forward.


Bill Mullen
I've always had a thing for a beautiful piece of land. Not just what it looks like now, but what it has the potential to be.


Don Basnight
Chapel Hill and Carrboro are not “real-estate friendly” in the same way that Cary is. You’re not going to find sprawling subdivisions or high-rises going up without careful scrutiny – and that’s why I love being in real estate here.


Louise Barnum
I’m not from the Triangle, but it is where I did the best part of my growing up. It’s where I discovered new ways of thinking, and new ways of doing things. It’s where I found independence, and the power of community.


Gary Phillips
Gary Phillips is a writer, naturalist and entrepreneur. He has a special interest and expertise in conservation easements and other land-protective strategies.


Jay Parker
Being professional doesn’t mean doing what everyone else does. In fact, true professionalism often means forging your own path.


Buying or selling a home, or land, is a life-changing event. And like most life-changing events, it’s best to go through it with someone who can support and guide you through the ups and downs. Hopefully they can even help you have fun in the process.

For that reason, we recommend finding a realtor that is not just best suited to your real estate needs, but to your worldview too. So here’s a little bit about who we are and what we believe – click through for more detailed profiles:

Don Basnight

Orange Co. resident since before he was born.

Don Basnight, Broker

Belief: It’s so nice working for a company where there is no corporate line that says I can’t oppose a development that I feel is wrong. In fact, we have been very explicit about the kind of development that we feel is good for the community – we’ve even turned down deals that don’t fit the bill.

Background: To say that Don is a native of Chapel Hill is somewhat of an understatement. In fact, on his mother’s side his family goes back 6 or 7 generations – right back to the original land grants.
