Hi- My name is Wes Barnes and I appreciate you taking the time to visit our website to learn more about who I am and how I got here! I was born in Henderson, N.C., but spent most of my childhood in New Bern, N.C. I attended college at East Carolina University and moved to Raleigh upon finishing school in 1999. After a couple of sales jobs, I found my passion in real estate.
I started my real estate career as a licensed real estate appraiser twelve years ago. Appraising real estate gave me an exceptional start in the real estate world. Having a deep understanding of home values gives me an obvious advantage when helping someone buy or sell a home. Negotiating the price of a home is a crucial step in buying or selling and having the knowledge of exactly where the value lies gives me an advantage over most agents.
After spending seven years doing appraisals, I decided to join my brother and try my hand as a real estate agent. I have not looked back since! Always having a passion for real estate, this was the obvious next step for my career. Helping a family with one of the biggest decisions of their lives is an extremely gratifying and rewarding thing to be a part of and one of the biggest blessings in my life is the ability to love my job.
I live in Cary with my wife and three children. My family will always be my first priority, but my clients are a close second. My beautiful and stable family life allows me to always be available to my clients. Barnes McQuade Reality has a wealth of real estate knowledge, but customer service will always be our biggest advantage over other real estate firms. I appreciate you taking the time to hear a little about my life and I hope you will give me the opportunity to assist you with your real estate needs.
