NB Real Estate was born out of a mutual desire to revolutionize real estate and a belief that selling a home requires more than just listing a home in an MLS. Selling a home requires identifying high probability buyers, actively seeking them out, and marketing with non-traditional mediums to maximize the potential buyer pool. We both come to real estate after 24 years of in diverse areas,

Frank from IT and Ralph from academics and product management. Our core beliefs (being ethical, transparent, and entrepreneurial) drive our commitment to your service.

  • Frank helped us purchase a second home in Chapel Hill in March 2018. Frank patiently showed us several different communities and homes in the area.

Frank was always available to answer our questions, kept us informed and updated throughout the process.

    03/25/2019 - Jerry and Karen Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Chapel Hill, NC.
  • Sell - We had a very small time frame to get our home listed and sold. This was no easy feat for a family with 3 young children. However, Frank was able to provide us with a professional, yet easy going service, and we were able to get our home sold so quickly we did not have to constantly worry about keeping the house clean for showings. We couldn't recommend Frank more!

  • Moving from CT to NC was a big step towards our families future. Packing, selling the current home, and looking for a new NC home, was extremely stressful. Frank took a lot of the burden of house hunting in NC off our shoulders. He got to know us personally, our needs, wants, and like to have requirements for a new home. Frank did not waste our time with homes that did not fill these requirements. When visiting a home, Frank's keen eye looked for quality workmanship, issues that would need immediate attention or future concern, and the homes functionality. When we selected a home, Frank helped with the walk through process to ensure there were no surprises. Frank's attention to detail and experience went a long way to making our move to NC fun, exciting, and successful. Highly recommend Frank Niwinski for all your NC real estate needs. 08/18/2020 - eargentasr Bought a Single family home in 2020 in Creedmoor, NC.
