Rachel is the pinnacle realtor of the Triangle. Having bought and sold multiple properties in the Triangle and elsewhere, I can say with complete assurance that your realtor search stops with Rachel. She takes pride in her devoted effort towards the sale of your home, and keeps in close contact each step of the way. I implore you to utilize Rachel for all of your real estate needs.
Rachel was the absolute best realtor I could have hoped to have in the journey towards my new home. She was there every single step of the way, explained the process to me, was always upfront and honest, and was a joy to work with. Rachel is the type of realtor that made me wish I didn't find a home as quickly just so I would have more time to work with her. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a new home and I have no doubt that she would take care of you just as well as she took care of me. Thank you so much, Rachel! You are great at what you do!
Rachel is the most caring and hard working real estate agent we know. She spent many hours doing research on the old home we bought. Her willingness to help made us feel like family. Rachel makes the process fun and stress free.
I have never dealt with someone as honest and caring as Rachel. When asked a question , if she did not have the answer, you can be assured the answer would be forthcoming very shortly. I would recommend Rachel Rea to anyone selling a home! Rachel's expertise was totally awesome, she made selling a home a pleasure not a dreaded experience.

Rachel is a great agent to work with. She was always available for us and getting back to us promptly regarding all our requests. After touring 40 homes in 3 weeks she helped us close the deal on the house my husband and I love! Thanks Rachel, couldnt do it without you.
Jamie & Terri Poole
Our experience with Rachel was fantastic! Coming from out of state, Rachel kept us informed and effectively utilized our time and hers during the home search process. Once we identified a home for our family Rachel provided guidance and assistance throughout the approval and closure process to ensure a smooth transition.
Thank you Rachel and best regards from the Poole family!
Very responsive and helpful!
Peter & Andrea
We wish we could give Rachel more than 5 stars! As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but she made the whole process as stress free and straightforward as possible. Despite several unexpected issues with houses and our wants and needs changing weekly, Rachel's enthusiasm and commitment for finding us the right home never changed. No matter the location or style of house, she was on it! We cannot thank her enough! We will definitely use her again and would highly recommend her to anyone.

We knew from our first phone conversation with Rachel Rea that she was very knowledgeable of the triangle area as well as the school systems. This was extremely important to us because we knew little to nothing of the Raleigh /Durham area when house hunting. We had many questions about schools (traditional, year round, capped, etc) and Rachel was able to answer them all. She was professional yet easygoing and went above and beyond the extra mile to help us find a wonderful home in an extremely tight market in the very short amount of time we had to house hunt. She took the time to find out exactly what we wanted in a house/neighborhood and showed us everything available in our allotted time frame. She navigated all of the paperwork with ease. Rachel walked us through the entire process of home buying, from the initial hunt and writing a contract to inspections, negotiations and closing. She even stayed in contact beyond closing to remind us of things to follow up on once we took ownership of our house. If you're looking for someone who will work as hard as it takes to find you a home, Rachel is the one to call on. Although she started out as our Real Estate Agent, we now consider Rachel Rea a friend. Thanks again Rachel!
Rachel made my first time buying a home a great and easy experience. She was very easy to talk to and did her best to answer any question I had. I am very happy in my new home.
We have known Rachel and her family for over 3 years, and when we were ready to make our next move we had no doubt who we would chose to find us the perfect house. Rachel worked tirelessly to find us a house in our price range in the neighborhood we wanted and worked some serious real estate magic to get us out of our current home when we needed some serious repairs at the 11th hour. We would recommend Rachel to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. Less 1

Rachel is wonderful. We have been disappointed in realtors in the past, but she really turned our luck around. She made the entire process feel seamless. Whether she was contacting the builder, helping us during closing or following up to make sure we remember our warranty, Rachel made us feel like we were her only clients. If you are looking for someone to go above and beyond and help you with one of the biggest decisions of your life, you can find that person in Rachel. Thank you again Rachel, we absolutely love our new home thanks to your hard work!
Rachel made my first time buying a home a great and easy experience. She was very easy to talk to and did her best to answer any question I had. I am very happy in my new home.
Rachel is one person me and my family rely on for both buying and selling homes. She is very knowledgeable about the market trends and conditions. Her expertise in staging a home and what catches the eye helped bring in the quality buyers.
We were fortunate when we were referred to Rachel. We had been looking for a while and had not found anything suitable. Rachel was very positive and assured us we would find just the right home. She was right! When it came along she knew how to put together an excellent offer that won us the house in a multiple bid situation.
Throughout the home buying process Rachel was on top of it every step of the way and the entire experience went smoothly. There is no doubt that the reason we are enjoying our home today is due to Rachel. We would not hesitate to work with her again.
WOW! She is the powerhouse you need when looking for a home. I thought I'd never land a house but Rachel kept at it. I thought I wanted too much but she assured me I wasn't asking for the moon. I finally found THE house and she went to work getting things moving forward. From showings to offer to inspections to closing, she was with me all the way. Rachel Rea, remember that name and you'll find your dream home too! Thank you.

We wouldn't use any other realtor than Rachel. She really listened to what we needed in a house. She was always looking through the listing wether it was new or existing inventory. she was fantastic in helping us relocate and purchase our home.
Rachel was absolutely amazing in our search for our first home! We looked for about 3 months straight and anytime there was a home that we wanted to see, she made sure we saw it as soon as possible! She was always super responsive, understanding, and patient with us deciding on our first home and it was the best experience because we ended up with the perfect home for us. Any time a new home came onto the market she would send it to us immediately so that we always got to see what was available. She really made the whole “under contract” process very seamless. She connected us with great people to perform inspections and other due diligence items. Everything was completed on schedule! And she made the whole process stress free! I would highly recommend using Rachel as your realtor. She will be sure to find you the absolute best house around!
Rachel’s was great to work with, her attention to the small details and expertise were invaluable. Selling a home can be very stressful but Rachel made it more fun. She helped us every step of the way, from organizing small repairs pre- sale, to staging the house to look it’s very best. Thanks to Rachel’s hard work our house sold within days of going on the market.
Rachel is top notch! We talked to a few realtors before we settled on her. She got us a house below asking in this crazy, seller's market! She was strategic in her search for a home for us and her negotiation skills got us a phenomenal deal on our dream home! We could not be happier with her flexibility and expertise! We will never use another realtor again!!
Rachel went above and beyond helping us find a house. She Facetimed me from a house she knew we would love when I couldn't make the trip to Raleigh. We ended up purchasing that house and it's more than we could have asked for. She is the best realtor I have worked with and I will be recommending her to anyone I know looking to buy/sell a home in the Raleigh area!
Rachel is a very positive person. When we thought things were going belly up she always had faith it would be ok and it was. A joy to work with.

Repeat customer! As Always the best of everything professional!
It was great working with Rachel Rea. She is very knowledgeable, always reachable and stays on top of everything. For us relocating from CT to NC, having someone on our side that is an expert in NC and the area we where looking at was key. It made all the difference. Further more Rachel took her time to understand our needs, desires and financial boundaries up front. With that understanding she was able to target the search very effectively. We ended up to make an offer on the FIRST house she showed us. We think that this is a record :=))
Seriously Rachel is the most dedicated hardworking realtor in the area. We sold and bought with her and I could not have asked for more. You can really tell she lives what she does and cares for her clients. We plan to use her again and again!
Rachel is an amazing realtor. She is organized, trustworthy, knowledgeable and the best realtor we have ever worked with by far. We appreciate her ability to be flexible and for going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that our experience was free of stress and easy. She sold our house in 1 day and above asking price! You can't go wrong when you put your real estate needs in Rachel's hands!Less
We’ve used Rachel to purchase two homes. Both times, she has been fantastic.Rachel is very familiar with the area and is incredibly practical. We trust her fully — she always gave honest opinions of each house, even if it meant that we would pass on that particular house.After both purchases, Rachel remained incredibly helpful. We’d highly recommend her and will use her again if we need to buy or sell a house.
Rachael is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She steered us correctly. We met her through a mutual friend who is a realtor in Charlotte. Rachael is pleasant to spend time with and easily conversational. I have run into her since she helped us and was as friendly as she was when we were working with her.
Rachel sold our home almost four years ago, the sale could not have gone smoother! Rachel was aggressive when she needed to be, totally focused on our concerns. The entire process was completed very fast , exceeding our concerns and needs. We received the amount we asked for! I would totally suggest you consider Rachel Ray as your agent. Awesome job!!Less
Rachel Rae is an outstanding choice if you are in need of a buyer's agent for your relocation or local move. She knows the area well. She is a pleasure to work with. You can count on her to be on time for scheduled home viewings.
She is also skilled at translating home inspector speak to layman language. 😉
If you want an agent who is professional and personable, Rachel is right for you. She will tend to all the details of your home sale or purchase and address all of your concerns. You will feel just as good about getting to know her. You'll enjoy her professional diligence and personal enthusiasm.
Rachel is the best! She is a talented agent who can help you devise the best strategy for expediting the sale of your home. Her keen eye, attention to detail and tireless determination to help you and your family find the right home is a great asset for any prospective home buyer. I highly recommend putting Rachel Rea to work for you in buying/selling your house!
Steve & Kristi
Our house was on the market with another agent for 5 months, good showings but no offers. In two weeks with Rachel we had 3 offers! She did a great job negotiating and setup a successful closing shortly after. Rachel is truly a professional with great attention to detail. Simply amazing!
I have been working with Rachel Rea since 2012 on both personal property purchases and sales as well as professional transactions and closings for mutual clients. I have found her to be very personable, reliable and customer oriented. Rachel is always going the extra mile for her clients to ensure they get the best representation and have a positive experience. I truly enjoy working with Rachel and would recommend her to anyone!
I have known Rachel for years and she acted as my buyer/seller agent recently when I moved from Cary to Apex. She knows the area very well, was very professional and provided excellent advice and guidance throughout the entire process. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the area.
Rachel provided us with excellent guidance as we prepared our home for sale, including improvements and colors to use. When we listed, she brought in special touches to appeal to buyers. She researched competitive pricing carefully and set the market price appropriately. The results were a house sale in less than a week at slightly higher than the list price. We are delighted with her professional and personal approach to what is a major transaction in our lives.
Rachel was a pleasure to work with. All of the other realtors that I’ve worked with had their assistants do the majority of the work but Rachel was always available and willing to help. Throughout the entire process there was never a moment when I thought she didn’t have my families best interest at heart. To this day my kids still ask when she can come over and visit again. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Jeff & Meghan Folger
Rachel is a true professional who loves what she does. When we signed a contract to build a new home, we knew we had to get our current house listed ASAP. With Rachel's guidance in prepping it for sale, it was on the market less than 24 hours before we had a full price offer! She also worked with the builders of our new home to ensure we were getting the best deal possible, and she went to bat for us on several issues that came up during the inspection. Both the selling and buying processes were seamless thanks to her expertise and customer service, and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Sam and Yolanda White
We knew Rachel as a friend before we decided to sell our home and build new. We didn't know what a gem we had when we called to ask a few questions about the buying/selling process! Rachel was, and continues to be, a true professional and we could tell that she has a passion for this work. She made great suggestions for us to make small tweaks to get our first home ready for the market. We sold in 5 days! Rachel has repeatedly impressed us with her strong negotiating skills, attention to detail and customer service. She was confident and courteous in all of her interactions with us and with the vendors and reps we spoke with. She has a wealth of resources and contacts at her fingertips and has even helped us with making real estate contacts in another state when we had questions about that! We don't hesitate to recommend Rachel to any friends who wonder about any real estate needs.
Chris & Brittany Davila
Incredible to work with. Very personable, and friendly. Rachel will find exactly what you want in a limited amount of time. She is patient and courteous. I would Highly recommend her, and would work with her again in the future.
Rachel made my home selling experience extremely easy. I enjoyed working with Rachel because she was very knowledgable and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. Rachel was very personable and showed that she was passionate about her job and committed to customer satisfaction. When I need a realtor in the future Rachel will be my first choice and I will absolutely recommend her whenever I have the opportunity.
Rachel is one of the most amazing Real Estate Professionals and person I have ever met! She is extremely organized, pays close attention to details, not afraid to "fight" for what is right and delivers superb customer service and professionalism at all times. She takes her time to study the market and is always one step ahead. Not only is it always a pleasure to work with her, her smile makes it a pleasure just to be around her, she is definitely a light that shines ever so bright!
Happy to say "GREAT agent !!!!
Rachel was great to work with and she answered all our needs during relocation process. She did above and beyond to help us out while she was on family vacations!
As a first time home buyer and a transfer to the Raleigh area, the thought of "house hunting" was met with both excitement and a dose of trepidation. Rachel, however, very quickly removed the trepidation! She showed me a number of townhomes that fit in my budget, were located in desirable communities, and that were within reasonable commute to my employment. She was very honest and forthcoming about Raleigh's often fast-paced housing market, without putting pressure on the buying process. She was exceptional in working with the inspector and seller's agent, and was thorough in answering questions and always listened to concerns. She is highly knowledgeable of the intricacies of a real estate transaction, knows the Triangle area well, and knows how to make a client comfortable through her awesome personality. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent!
I am delighted to share my experience of working with Mrs. Rachel Rea, of Allen Tate Realtors, Searstone, Cary, North Carolina. She brings a wealth of experience and technology to the forefront. She is a knowledgeable and client oriented professional. Throughout the selling and buying activities, she demonstrated resourcefulness in acquainting me with Wake County real estate market conditions. She was always available and accessible. Of particular mention was her enthusiasm and ability to turn challenges into solutions .. keeping me calm throughout the process. I sincerely cherish our working relationship. She is an exceptional professional! Thank you very kindly.
Rachel did an amazing job helping us house hunt, giving us feedback on each home and was there every step of the way with the home buying process ensuring a smooth process. She went above and beyond a number of times and my wife and I greatly appreciate all the time, effort and attention she gave us. She always had our best interest in mind. Would work with her again in a heart beat!
Rachel is a true professional! Outstanding to work with!
Rachel was fantastic! I wanted to explore houses quickly and she worked very hard for me to keep an itinerary of houses going in my area (the edge of the Greater Triangle). I was a first time homebuyer and she educated me (along with my lender) which set me at ease through the process. I also just had a lot of fun looking at houses together! She was such a pleasure to work, I can't imagine choosing a different agent in the future.
She is the best . Caring , knowledgeable , skilled and a true professional. We would highly recommend Rachel as both a listing agent and a buyers agent. We used her in both capacities and she excelled in both roles.
Michael and Harriette Weitzman
We have never dealt with a realtor that is so talented , knowledgeable, client focused and competent as Rachel. She is dedicated, hard working and goes out of the way to do everything possible to meet her clients wants and needs. We utilized Rachel/AllenTate to help us prepare our house for listing, and she was right on target as to her assessment of the housing market and how to price our house--which sold in 3 days. We were so pleased with Rachel as our selling agent, that we utilized her as our buying agent in purchasing our new home.. She provided invaluable help in representing us with our new home builder ,and saved us both money and a lot of grief we otherwise would have experienced. She is the best!
I am very satisfied with the experience of purchasing a home with Allen Tate.
