  New office. Alas, after two weeks living my fantasy of an office on Fayetteville Street two blocks from the old State Capitol, I have moved to another inside the beltline office of Prudential York Simpson Underwood (PRU YSU) on Computer Drive. The downtown YSU office has closed, however, PRU YSU continues its strong downtown presence marketing 8 residential developments in central Raleigh. These include the site sales offices for the recently completed RBC Plaza condos at 301 Fayetteville Street (the 29th floor), the HUE condos at Hargett and Dawson Streets (office is at 303 W. Martin Street near Nash Square),the Blount Street Commons (condos, historic homes and buildable lots) at 540 N. Blount Street (the Peace Street corner), and the Village at Pilot Mill homes at the 1224 N. Blount Street. Two other inside the beltline offices are in Cameron Village (Oberlin Road) and near the extensive residential, retail and offices now being developed in the North Hills area ( 3700 Computer Drive). Check back for a map and links to these developments. (Rev. 2/10/09)
  Merger creating Prudential York Simpson Underwood Realty
My move is the result of the purchase and merger just before Christmas of York Simpson Underwood (YSU) by Prudential Carolinas Realty, my prior company that is owned by Home Services of America, an affiliate of Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway companies. The merger allows me to harness the Triangle-wide resources of YSU to promote and sell inside the beltline properties as well as unique homes throughout the Triangle area. (Rev. 1/11/09)
