Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston, the leading real estate company in the Triangle region, has appointed Rachael Elliott as Associate Sales Office Manager of its Chapel Hill and Pittsboro real estate sales offices. Elliott will focus on agent recruitment and training to help grow the Chapel Hill and Pittsboro real estate teams, support existing sales associates and gain additional market share over area competitors.

"Rachael's understanding of our business and marketplace, along with her commitment to helping people succeed, was a natural fit for our company," said Randy Cox, sales manager and broker-in-charge of the Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices. "We are excited to have her on our team and look forward to what the future holds for both our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro agents."  

Elliott earned her real estate license in 2015 and has been loving it ever since. "I am very excited and honored to be part of a company with an already fabulous reputation that consistently strives for excellence and improvement," said Elliott.  "I am looking forward to growing the office and helping the agents in the best way possible. I have felt a strong connection to real estate since as long as I can remember. My grandfather owned a successful realty firm in Hilton Head, and my aunt has been a practicing agent for almost two decades. I helped with an open house at 9 years old and was "sold" ever since!"

Elliott has called the Triangle her home since birth. She was born in Raleigh and has family who lives all throughout the Triangle. "I love living in the Triangle because it is the best of all worlds," said Elliott. "I love the diversity in the people, restaurants, architecture, etc. I love the sporting events and university rivalries. Also, we get to experience the beauty in all four seasons, and we can drive to the beach or mountains with ease."

Elliott enjoys traveling, cooking, gardening, reading, yoga, running and spending time with family and friends.  She is also involved with giving back to our community and helping to make a difference. "I have been active in Susan G Komen's Walk for the Cure," said Elliott.

Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston, the leading real estate company in the Triangle region, has appointed Kailey Norman as Sales Manager and Broker-In-Charge of its Hillsborough and Mebane sales offices. The Hillsborough and Mebane offices, both, feature contemporary, collaborative business spaces which are designed to better serve agents through all stages of the home buying process.

"Kailey is a proven real estate professional with a long track record of success," said Kent Hanley, Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston's Chief Executive Officer.  "Her real estate career as a CBHPW agent has given her a great knowledge base to build off of as we continue to look to grow our presence in the Hillsborough and Mebane area."

Norman earned her real estate license in 2013 and has over six years of real estate experience. "As a manager, I look forward to helping new and experienced agents in maximizing their potential and finding a healthy work/life balance," said Norman. "Our HPW office in Hillsborough is perfectly picturesque and benefits from an adorable, walkable town filled with artists, authors and musicians. I am excited to expand the office and increase our presence in the local community."

Meet Kailey Norman, Sales Manager Of The Hillsborough And Mebane Real Estate Sales Offices 

Originally from Tampa, Florida, Norman moved to the Triad area in 2005 where she attended Wake Forest University.  She has called the Triangle home since 2012. "The Triangle is a melting pot of cultures, opportunities, food, entertainment and everything that anyone would want in the place they call home," said Norman. "Perfectly nestled between the mountains and the coast, one can go three hours in either direction to see snow or spend a day at the beach."

Norman enjoys boating on the many lakes the Triangle has to offer, fishing down at the coast, spending time at the beach, snow skiing in Colorado and traveling. She is also involved with giving back to our community and helping to make a difference. "I volunteer with Duke Children's Hospital and Habitat for Humanity," said Norman.  She also helps extensively with Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston's annual Turkeys for the Triangle fundraiser, where 4,500 turkeys are donated to those in need during the holiday season.
