Ken Tunnell

Ken grew up in rural Eastern NC, and early on learned the value of family and community. From his many hours working and hanging out in the general store his grandparents ran, the importance of respecting all people and having a space for folks to meet and talk was ingrained in him. It also gave him the love of collecting old soda bottles - and his shelves bear witness to it!

The land of his childhood also influenced his respect and care for the environment and the animals that depend on it. Many hours in the middle of nowhere plowing fields, helping raise fledgling bald eagles and banding waterfowl (swans are much more agreeable than geese!), many more hours in the seat of the old Oliver 1800 tractor planting, cultivating, and harvesting – it all drove home his love of the outdoors, the creatures that inhabit it and our calling to care for it all.

And these two values, environment and community, led to his working with two outstanding local non-profits. The Haw River Assembly, where he has served as a board member, puts into peoples’ hands the tools and the knowledge they need to be effective guardians of the Haw River. Ken was also a part of founding Bynum Front Porch, dedicated to keep the old Bynum General Store alive as a community gathering place. He’s currently the chair of its Board of Directors and invites you to come down for a Friday night of music under the stars from May to September.

On the for profit side, Ken has a ton of experience in commercial property leasing and acquisitions. He helped Performance Bicycle’s retail footprint grow from a tiny catalog outlet store in Carrboro (just about where Cameron’s now is) to over 100 stores nationwide. Ken also knows the residential investment market in the area - closing on and managing rental properties in Chatham County.

So whatever you want to do – settle down in your own home, add an investment property to your financial portfolio or just stroll along the Haw River – Ken is ready to go!
