The REA team has experience, longevity and knowledge of the Durham and Triangle markets that few firms possess. They’ve been through the ups and downs of these markets and are always well-informed regarding trends in property values. They’re both professional and personable, which is a great combination. Duke University has had great experiences when dealing with Real Estate Associates.

As a general contractor who does not have time to manage my own properties, I want a management team to oversee my properties using the same principles I would if I could do it myself. REA has succeeded in doing this for over 15 years. Among other things, they handle advertising, applicant screening, maintenance, the expediting of turnover, as well as the cross-checking of properties before occupation. They keep me abreast on all aspects of the rental process for each property. REA has a specialist overseeing each phase of the rental process. I think this is what sets them apart. I highly recommend them.

When we received a “surprise” 60-day notice that our building next to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park was going to be demolished, we had to scramble to find a new location. We love the vitality of downtown Durham and wanted to stay if we could, but we knew options would be limited given the space requirements for our distribution center. The REA team came through for us. They found the perfect building just a few blocks from Durham Central Park and secured lease terms that fit our needs. We moved in with days to spare! REA has a professional and knowledgeable team. No one knows this area’s real estate market better.

Since 2015, REA has managed and assisted in leasing some properties for us. They are clear communicators, are highly professional—with everyone including my tenants, and they take excellent care of my properties. I trust them completely, because they do what they say they are going to do when they say they will do it, providing time and cost savings for me. REA is large enough to handle any situation and at the same time, small enough for me to reach the people I need when I need them.
