Local Knowledge. Vast Experience.

At HTR, our local knowledge is unmatched. HomeTowne Realty was founded by locals whose roots run deep. Barry Woodard & James Lipscomb were raised in the Clayton community where hard work and community involvement were instilled in them from a young age. They combined forces in 2001 to start HomeTowne Realty and share their passion for the area by helping others buy & sell homes. No one knows the area better than our team of HomeTowne agents who are trained and specialized in the communities we serve.



Made up of three major cities, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and their surrounding counties, the Triangle area has something to offer everyone. First & foremost, the location is hard to beat! Whether you enjoy being outdoors in the mountains or relaxing on the coast, you’re only a short drive from either. 



Outdoor living is at the heart of the coastal region. Beaches, boating, fishing, hiking, biking, camping…this region has it all, which means there’s an activity for every age, interest, and vacationer. For those who love the beach, the Crystal Coast has white-sand and surf in excess, including oceanfront condos with private beaches and public access beaches. 



The Eastern NC area is located just an hour from the Crystal Coast or an hour to Raleigh, making it very convenient for those who commute to Raleigh or Goldsboro. This area boasts large farms and spacious lots throughout the region. If you’re a fan of BBQ, you’ll love the Eastern NC BBQ that’s famous here!
