My name is Chris Ketchel and I’m located in the great state of North Carolina. I moved here right out of college in 1985, with a focus on Urban Studies and Real Estate. In my early days I was a big participant in the frenzied new home construction industry, working for several of the national home builders. In 2000 I obtained my real estate agent’s license and the next year became a broker-in-charge. My specialty in Chatham County market research quickly emerged in the fast paced development planning market. In 2007, however, I began seeing the writing on the wall:
“The Market Became Vastly Over Supplied”
I quickly shifted gears by moving to Downtown Durham, NC just as the (now hugely successful) American Tobacco project was coming on-line. Prime Location has always been the major tenet of the real estate industry, thus I set out at the beginning of my career to understand it fully. It’s also necessary to know your market when starting a business. If you want to learn a little more about “that property” or how to best promote a product or service, please anytime.

In the urban part of Durham known as southside, south central, hillside, Hayti, NCCU, CC Spaulding Elementary School there is a hidden historic natural area. So today I will begin describing this area as well as suggest urban planning designs for its protection and benefit for the community. This place got its name because of the legend of an old man living in a cave with a pack of dogs. From the maps you’ll see it labeled as “Place For Picnics” near M. A. Angier’s Farm, whom I believe was a former mayor. Continue reading →
The Decade of Calamity by Arthur C. Nelson, professor of city and regional planning at the University of Utah, one of the nation’s most prescient housing market researchers, says the worst is yet to come. The demand for single family housing has completely dried up during this economic crises and WILL NOT be coming back for at least 15 years.
The Reasons: Continue reading →
Though you may not be able to tell by viewing our website, a lot has been happening lately. We have been gathering a ton of data for our reference library.
