Testimonials Page

"Thank you for handling the sale of 100 Ravenstone. You and your team helped bring this to closure despite a challenging buyer’s agent and a closing attorney (chosen by the buyers) who appeared to be disorganized and forgetful. It was nice to have you on our side from the point we decided to sell, through renovation of the property, listing, inspection and final sale. Throughout it all we felt confident you had our best interests in mind. You have a terrific team. A heartfelt THANK YOU to Laura (client care manager) for her steady hand, calming attitude and always upbeat telephone presence & for helping to bring the sale of our home to closure. Through all the challenges Laura was quick to get answers to our questions and she met all of the challenges thrown at her with amazing grace and courtesy. Thank you for a job very well done. We intend to continue using your team as long as we have property in Cary, NC!" Barry & Paula Schwoerer
"I have worked with John and Carrie many times and I highly recommand their attention to detail, level of commitment and open communication. They are the best agents I have ever worked with." Erez Halfon - Buyer - Cary, NC
"What can we say about The Dukes Team other than they are true professionals in their field. Knowing that the housing market is not in the best of shape right now, my wife and I just knew we would sit on this sale for months. Far from the truth!!! The Dukes Team were introduced to us as being the best, and they lived up to it in every aspect of the transaction. They came in and worked their magic, and within five weeks even before we could have an open house we were under contract and sold shortly there after. So if you are looking for true professionals, look no further than The Dukes Team!!!" Nathan & Mayra Lewis - Sellers - Durham, NC
"Dealing with John and Carrie was incredibly easy. They were always prompt in addressing my questions and needs and exhibited great patience in walking me through both the buying and selling process. I highly recommend John and Carrie when buying or selling a home!" Don & Sandy Childrey - Buyers & Sellers - Cary, NC
"Carrie, I just wanted to say thanks for everything you did for us during this whole process. I am very happy with the house and I am SO glad we went back to it and put in another offer. I think it is the right house for us and the kids love it:) Thanks for sticking it out and putting up with my inability to make up my mind (lol). I am positive we made the right choice:) Anyway, thanks again and tell John we said thank you as well. If I come across anyone who is buying or selling their home, I will definately pass on your card. Thanks!" Jennifer Postreich - Buyer - Holly Springs, NC

The LAST Greatest Show on Earth!

As this show comes to an end after more than a 100 years, it's important to look at their history, the current state of entertainment and what the future holds! 

The original Barnum & Bailey Circus began in 1882 and a couple of years later, five of the seven Ringling brothers started the Ringling Brothers Circus in 1884. After much competition, The Ringling Brothers bought the Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1907. The two shows merged for the first time & debuted in New York City in 1919 for truly The Greatest Show on Earth! They traveled all over the world & created memories with millions of families for well over a decade! The decision to bring this show to an end resulted from increasing operating costs and declining ticket sales. Their spotlight was always their elephants, and after recent decades of protests & lawsuits by animal rights groups, the show removed their elephant act completely and started to see the decline in ticket sales happen.  

The days of being entertained by wild animals in captivity seem to be a thing of the past and a central focus on many protests towards zoos & other animal exhibit parks such as Seaworld. Safaris & carefully planned boat rides are gaining more popularity, as they give the opportunity to view these same animals in their natural habitats without the need to capture & train them but instead protect & preserve their species. In 1995, The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation was opened in Florida. This is where the endangered Asian Elephants from the show are now kept and cared for - learn more by visiting their website at http://www.ringlingelephantcenter.com/

For the performers in the circus that are not animals, they'll be able to continue to share their extraordinary talents through character & performance based contemporary circus shows such as Cirque du Soleil. On December 25, 2017, a biographical musical film will be released called The Greatest Showman and will tell the story of the Barnum & Bailey Circus's founder P.T. Barnum, starring Hugh Jackman & Michelle Williams as his love interest. 

Families in the Triangle area can see The Greatest Show on Earth one last time before they close permanently in May 2017! 

Prepare to blast off on an intergalactic adventure for space-age family fun! Launch into the future with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Out Of This World™, taking place February 9-12, 2017 at the PNC Arena. Children Of All Ages can take the helm to join the Circus Space Fleet on a heroic quest of good versus evil that will let imaginations run wild with unexpected surprises and thrills at every turn. Your entire family will be amazed by this cosmic voyage as you discover the wonders of gravity-defying acrobats, orbital aerialists, majestic animals, fearless daredevils and humorous clowns.

Durham's Food Truck Rodeo

Everyone is talking about the Food Truck CRAZE and rodeos are a great way to discover your favorite trucks to follow on social media! 

Did you know that Durham Central Park pioneered the Triangle's original Food Truck Rodeo and continues to host it five times a year, including the only winter event in our entire area? 

They're located at 501 Foster Street in downtown Durham and open to the public 24 hours, have a skate park, free community pick-your-own garden & more than 9,000+ square feet of covered event space! Food Truck Rodeos aren't the only thing they do! Covering more than 5 acres, they also have 3 additional gardens, a central lawn, a very unique interactive children's play area & they're a strong advocate for other local cultural activities including Durham's weekly Farmers Market. For more information, visit www.DurhamCentralPark.org

If you've never attended a Food Truck Rodeo before, be prepared to be delighted! It's like a food court at the mall, but with much better food and an outside opportunity to people watch! The event takes place rain or shine, and Duke University's very own WXDU 88.7 FM will be presenting the entertainment to get us dancing in the park this weekend! Admission is free, you just simply pay for what you eat or drink. The trucks do pay a fee and these rodeos help raise the funds to cover operation costs and upkeep of the park!

This Sunday, January 22, kicks off 2017's first rodeo from 12 - 4 PM. For all ages, and for all foodies alike, they'll have more than 50 trucks, including Shark Tank's very own Cousins Maine Lobster truck! If you love local craft beer, you'll find many great vendors to choose from!
