About Tim McBrayer


I've been husband to Linda McBrayer for almost 34 years with two daughters: one graduated from App State in 2012 and the other graduated from App State in 2014. I earned ABJ and MBA degrees from the University of Georgia in 1975 and 1977 respectively. I earned my real estate license in 1981 but only used it to do real estate investing for the next 30+ years.

Almost all of my professional life has been spent in sales, sales management, consulting and business ownership in Charlotte, NC, Chicago, IL, Roanoke, VA and for the last 28 years in Raleigh, NC. I chose to become a full time Realtor because I like to help people, I wanted to put my marketing skills to work in a new arena, I liked the freedom to be my own boss and yet saw the value of becoming part of a major organization as I did when I joined Coldwell Banker Howard Perry And Walston in May of 2007. I joined the JIm Allen Group at CBHPW in December of 2009. Every year is better than the last. I try to concentrate my business in northern Wake and Franklin counties as a listing agent but I have listings all over the Triangle area. I work extensively with first time home buyers and those over 55. My designations/certifications include CRS, GRI, SRES, ABR, ecoBroker, ePRO, CLHMS, CMP, CIPS, SFR, CMP, CAPS and CGP. I see my role as one of a Trusted Advisor. I help my clients make Good Decisions when it comes to real estate. My job is to help them get the best price, on their timetable and with the least number of problems along the way. Real estate can be fun, easy and quick. It can also be tedious, long and difficult. I like the challenges of making the hard things easier and getting the tough jobs done as quickly and effectively as possible.

I always try to deliver more than I promise my clients so that I feel they worked with someone who made taking care of their needs and concerns paramount. At the end of the day you are only as good as your clients think you are so I ask anyone considering me to visit my website and click on the Testimonials link on my home page. Let my clients speak for me with their words on paper and on video. I think you'll be impressed with the quality of work I do for my clients and would do for you.I hope you will contact me if you or someone you know has a need for a Realtor. And you don't have to live in the Triangle. I have help people find great agents in other markets around the country and I can do the same for you. I am also actively involved with my industry locally, at the state level and nationally.

I am serving my 7th year as a member of the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 20209 as well as my 4th year on the NC Realtors BOD. In 2020 I am the Realtor Political Action Committee (RPAC) chair and I served as the 2018 President of The Realtor Foundation of Wake County as well as the campaign chairman of the NC RRC With A Heart campaign for 2018 and 2019. I am a Realtor PAC Trustee for NC Realtors and on the board of directors of the NC Housing Foundation starting in 2020.

"I never promise what I can't deliver and I always deliver what I promise."

I would love to help you with all of your residential real estate needs.

Risks And Rewards Of Selling Your Home Without A Realtor

Risks And Rewards Of Selling Your Home Without A Realtor

From the perspective of a home buyer, the position of a real estate agent can seem unjustified in its existence. Why in the world would you pay someone 6% commission on the total sale price of your home, just so that they can set up a couple signs in the yard and do some paperwork? On the face of it, it seems utterly preposterous; why not just sell your home without a ...
