Raleigh Office: Durham Office:
Our firm was originally founded in 2004. When the market crashed in 2008, we took over many expired listings and were able to sell them quickly, and often at prices higher than the original list price. Agents from other firms started to join us, and we have been growing quickly since then. Hunter Rowe Real Estate is a partnership of full-time professionals working together and developing methods to deliver better results for clients.
The name HUNTER is from the historic Isaac Hunter’s Tavern. Mr. Hunter’s hospitality was so appreciated that in 1788 the state legislators ordered the new state capital be located within 10 miles of his establishment. This part of our name represents our desire to build lasting relationships with our clients and those who have referred us to their family, freinds, and neighbors.
ROWE is from the British scientist Albert Percival (A.P.) Rowe (1898-1976), the founder of Operations Research, defined as “the discipline of applying analytical and scientific methods to make better decisions.” As the Director of Scientific Research for the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War II, A.P Rowe’s team of scientists literally outsmarted Hitler’s overwhelmingly superior forces, and saved England from otherwise certain invasion. This part of our name represents our approach of researching, questioning, and improving every aspect of the selling and buying process to get the best results for our sellers and buyers.
