Making Moves with McKenzie Stamper | The Rachel Kendall Team

I fell in love with real estate after purchasing my first home and having such an incredible home buying experience, which was the catalyst for me to pursue my real estate career. I always knew that I loved working with people. Combining my talents of capturing an authentic smile in photography and the excitement of finding the right home for my clients makes real estate the perfect blend and fit for me. I decided to join The Rachel Kendall Team because of their unmatched reputation in the Triangle and contagious positivity throughout the company. I value these qualities and carry them into my own interactions by being knowledgeable, sincere, and kind.

Making my clients feel like they are the most important home buyer in the Triangle is my passion! I believe that when I combine my love of people with the mission statement of The Rachel Kendall Team, “helping families create homes one house at a time,” together we provide a pleasurable and warm experience for each person that we are fortunate enough to serve. As a native of the Triangle, I have had the exciting experience of watching the area flourish over the last 45 years.

Making Moves with Gene Pitzer | The Rachel Kendall Team

After returning to Raleigh with a corporate relocation in 2002, there is always one constant that has remained the same: There’s no place I would rather call home than the Triangle. Having grown up in a military family, I had the opportunity to experience many different locations and cultures. After leaving home, I attended North Carolina State University, graduating with a business degree. I became an intern for the American Express Company and went on to thoroughly enjoy a twenty year career in card services. But when the opportunity came to join a growing Rachel Kendall Team, there was no way to say no! Since then, I have helped over 400 families with their real estate decisions. As a listing partner, I bring experience to the table, along with the collective experience of our highly skilled team, to foster quality results for you and your family. It’s an honor and pleasure to assist you with the sale of your home.
