Renee H.
eXp Realty
About Renee

I love what I do - it's in my blood :) I have consistently been a top producer since the moment I stepped into real estate. I am in the TOP 50 Brokers here locally (out of 13,000+) & TOP 1% of RE/MAX nationally until switching to eXp Realty in 2020. It is exciting to think little old me started this career full time at the age of 22 (I've actually been licensed since 1999!!!) & now to see what years of hard work has become! I've had the pleasure of being in Entrepreneur Magazine, a big TV debut on HGTV, Indy Weeks Best Realtor in Wake County, and more! I have lived in this area for almost 28 years - went to middle & high school in Apex, college at NC State (GO PACK!) where I graduated in 2000 with a degree in Business Management. I bought my first house in Apex, remodeled my next house in Cary, and have been a resident of Raleigh for a little over 13 years! Long and short, I know this area inside & out. And it doesn't just stop at homes – I love all the venues our area has to offer from museums to greenway systems to an excellent food scene. It isn't uncommon to find my family out and about locally trying something new. My husband & I welcomed our first child in the summer of 2015 and we are experiencing exciting new things every day! Although I like to think of myself as Superwoman, I can't do this all by myself! I do promise you that each client gets the individualized attention they deserve. Hillman Real Estate Group has a boutique type philosophy – we work hard to create an experience that is memorable for YOU. After all, this is your largest investment and needs to be handled accordingly. We take the time to interview each client & understand your desires and needs.

They provide first-class service, are great listeners, will always advocate for you, and are firm at exactly the right times. We also have a dedicated Client Care Specialist to make sure your experience is top-notch. She makes sure all the i's are dotted & t's are crossed. We run a tight ship to make sure we stay on track with all the important details to create a smooth closing for you. We believe in doing real estate smarter.
