I think that Northeast Raleigh is a good area. If you would like I can send you the crime statistics for the area and for the particular subdivision, as well as a few homes in the area. You can either send me an email or give me a call/text. 910.333.4690

Plus you can search listings from my website and have the homes that meet your criteria automatically sent to you.

Hope to talk to you soon!
