Originally from Colorado, Adrienne Zetterquist made a big move while in middle school to Wake Forest, North Carolina and has been living in the Triangle ever since. The move helped Adrienne broaden her comfort zone with meeting new people and now helps her relate to relocation and transplant clients. Adrienne received a degree in Business and Computer Science from NC State University and spent three years as a Project Engineer for a small local company. She is passionate about new technology and how it can help her manage her time and resources. While in college Adrienne was a barista at the very first Starbucks in North Carolina located on Hillsborough Street. She continued to work there (very part time) even after her formal education. Once she had vested her options in the company stock plan she was able to cash out and use the money to purchase her first house while still in her tender twenties. It is obvious that Real Estate was a passion even from the beginning! She has been selling residential real estate for the past 14 years and has received many awards including Re/Max executive, 100%, platinum, chairman and titan awards for sales volume and commissions. Adrienne is a newlywed, married in February 2014 to husband Burton Smisson and has a new baby, Olivia Hazel Smisson, born March 17, 2016. She has enjoyed motherhood tremendously but her other passions are volunteering with our local veterans at the Durham VA and working with German Shepherd Rescue groups to help save, foster and love rescued german shepherds in the area.
