#GivingTuesday | Turkeys for the Triangle

Did you scoop up the latest and greatest deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Perhaps you can use some of the money you saved on the gifts you bought to help others today.

Giving Tuesday is a special day that wraps up the spirited frenzy that after-Thanksgiving sales tend to cause. It's a day to give back so that nonprofit organizations can move forward with their holiday outreach efforts.

There are a number of deserving organizations right here in the Triangle region that would appreciate your support including our Turkeys for the Triangle program.

Feeding Neighbors in Need

Established nearly 15 years ago, Turkeys for the Triangle has donated over 28,000 turkeys to anchor holiday meals for more than 120,000 neighbors in need.

This year, Turkeys for the Triangle will distribute a record-breaking 4,500 turkeys to more than 100 local nonprofits and active military and veterans organizations. The first allotment of 2,500 turkeys was handed out just before Thanksgiving and another 2,000 birds will be donated ahead of Christmas. 

Help Us Help Others

Will you help us help others? You can donate to Turkeys for the Triangle by purchasing a raffle ticket or three (or more!) online at www.TurkeysfortheTriangle.com.

Turkeys for the Triangle raffle tickets are $10 each or three for $20.

Not only will your raffle ticket donation advance our cause, but you'll be entered to win high-value prizes including:

HPW Open Houses | Thanksgiving Weekend

Howard Perry and Walston Open House November 25 and 26Are you out and about chasing down the best Black Friday deals in town? Scoring holiday gifts for your loved ones and friends (and yourself) will be a fantastic feat, but imagine the joy finding your new home will bring.

You may have heard that spring and summer are the time to buy, but there are many reasons you should consider house hunting during the cold winter months.

 

Buying a Home During the Winter Months

 

Less Competition

It's common for buyer-competition to thin out in the winter as many people prefer to house hunt during the warmer seasons when the school year is waning.

More Motivated Sellers

Winter home sellers are often more motivated to close a deal than those selling during the peak season. They may be relocating for a job promotion, hoping to get a sale squared away before the new year, or simply ready to get their real estate journey underway.

Discover and Uncover      

Winter weather can tax a home. From the roof and gutters to the HVAC, plumbing and drafty doors, cold temperatures may reveal issues that you would otherwise have overlooked in warmer months.

Start Your Search

Let our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents help you find the home you seek. Our listings agents will be happy to host you at their open houses this Saturday and Sunday.

Box trucks, cargo vans, pickup trucks, and SUVs lined up at our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston corporate office to collect and deliver more than 2,500 frozen turkeys to nonprofit and military organizations across the Triangle region.

It was a great day to Help People Win, a commitment our company founder and chairman and Turkeys for the Triangle founder holds near and dear.

"Addressing the needs of the communities where our employees live and work is part of our core values of giving, and through our participation in Turkeys for the Triangle, we are able to serve families in need in the area we call home."

A Record-Breaking Donation

In front of a crowd of company volunteers and US Veterans Corps members, Walston and HPW Foundation President Matt Horton announced that Turkeys for the Triangle will add another 500 turkeys to its second holiday distribution event bringing its total Christmas donation to 1,500 birds.

With the additional birds, Turkeys for the Triangle will donate a record 4,500 turkeys to nourish neighbors this year.

Veterans Day Events and Memorials

Veterans Day Events and MemorialsVeterans Day is an important day of recognition in our country.

It is a day to pay tribute to the numerous men and women who staked their lives for our own and proudly served to protect our families and freedoms. It's a day to show gratitude for our nation's heroes.

While we are always grateful for their commitment, we are especially thankful for the opportunity to recognize them on this day.

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team proudly salutes all veterans in our local communities and across the nation for the sacrifices they made during their years of service.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

HPW Open Houses | November 4 – 5

HPW Open Houses November 4 and 5Have you decided to call the Triangle home? You've made a good choice. Now, let's find you a house.

With well-lauded local cities and towns, there are plenty of communities and neighborhoods to consider as you narrow down your list of wants and needs.

 

Urban Living

Raleigh and Durham offer burgeoning downtowns with developing cityscapes and urban convenience. 

Acclaimed restaurants and bars and cultural and sports venues are located only sidewalks apart offering goings-on before and after dark.

You'll find an array of newly debuted luxury townhomes, light-filled condos, and historical and new construction homes to consider as your own.

 

Suburban Setting

From Hillsborough and Mebane in the West to Zebulon and even Goldsboro in the East, you can pick from a number of Triangle area suburbs perfectly situated near main thoroughfares offering small-town living and demanded commuter convenience.

Main Street towns like Apex, Cary, Morrisville and Wake Forest make for ideal places to plant roots and grow your family just beyond the hustle and bustle of bigger city life.

 You can select from golf-course communities, mature neighborhoods, new master-planned developments, contemporary townhomes and much more.

HPW Pig Out For The Cure Raises More Than $23,800 For UNC Lineberger

'Cue, chicken, and charity! We're excited to share that Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston recently raised more than $23,800 for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center as part of our Pig Out For the Cure fundraiser and commitment to Helping People Win.

"Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston and its team members are true friends of UNC Lineberger, and their support makes it possible for us to provide the people of North Carolina with the best cancer care today, and to conduct the research that will lead to even better treatments," said Martin Baucom, UNC Lineberger's senior executive director of development & communications. 

Organized by our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices, our real estate sales associates sought out sponsors and sold barbecue plates to raise the money for the UNC Lineberger's Patient and Family Resource Center. The donation will bring our Pig Out For the Cure program's total contribution to UNC Lineberger to nearly $75,000 since 2010.

"We're very grateful to the many businesses and generous people who supported our Pig Out For The Cure fundraiser," said Randy Cox, sales manager and broker-in-charge of our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices. "Our team prepped and handed out more than 700 barbeque plates and had a great time doing it. We're proud that our effort will help to advance UNC Lineberger's mission to support those facing cancer."
