Why NB Real Estate

We, Frank and Ralph, met early in our real estate careers. We quickly discovered that we had a shared philosophy, specifically, that selling a home in the Triangle requires more than just listing a home in TMLS and having it posted on major real estate web pages. It was agreed that we should be working to identify targeted high probability buyers, actively seek them out, and promote our listed homes in non-traditional mediums. We have recently moved to eXp Realty to better serve our clients and started the NB Real Estate team. It is our belief that our clients can significantly benefit from our shared knowledge, expertise, and highly collaborative approach.

We welcome the opportunity to meet you to discuss your real estate needs.

Frank Niwinski:

Born and raised in Connecticut, my wife, Jennifer, and I decided to relocate to North Carolina in 2010. We commenced upon a lengthy process of exploring nearly every community in the Triangle in search of the perfect place to raise our family. We eventually sold our home in Connecticut and planted roots in Chatham County. I can speak for the whole family in saying we love our life here. We have been tremendously pleased with our decision. Prior to my career in real estate, I enjoyed a 24-year career in IT with IBM. During my time as an IT professional, I realized that my ability to cultivate customer relationships and deliver exceptional service was as essential to my success as my technical expertise. As a Realtor®, I am dedicated to ensuring client satisfaction by listening to each client’s needs in order to assist them in achieving their goals. I have been told I have an unparalleled attentiveness to detail and am driven by my core values of honesty and integrity. I am proud member of the Orange Chatham Association of Realtors and am currently serving as Co-Chair of the Government Affairs Committee. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family, especially my three children, various outdoor activities, and home improvement projects..

Ralph Bagwell, Ph.D.:

I am a transplanted Texan, who has been a proud resident of NC and The Preserve since 2009. My career accomplishments include 14 years as a professor and 10 years of US and global product management. I have directed numerous programs, including million dollar NASA grants as well as annual product sales in excess of $350 million. I began my real estate career in 2018. Interestingly, my initial desire after leaving private industry was to start a construction business, with real estate being a method to find customers. I found that I enjoyed real estate and helping clients so much that my goals changed! When I am not working, I volunteer for Chatham County Council on Aging and I enjoy playing golf and spending time on Jordan Lake.
