It’s all about location

Located in the heart of the Research Triangle region of North Carolina, we are centered between Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.  Three times as many opportunities for cultural, arts, sports, shopping, dining and festivals.  Each point of the triangle has its own unique personality, and each has art galleries, live music venues, hospitals, sporting venues, college campuses, restaurants, and more.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) is one thing everyone has in common. Ranked 5th in JD Power satisfaction survey, this beautiful, modern airport connects us to the world.

Just a few hours drive can take you to the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains, a stunning Atlantic Ocean beach town, or even a magnificent historic estate.

Don’t Just Take Our Word
