Jeff Rupkalvis


Hey, I’m Jeff!

I’m a lifelong resident of North Carolina and a Carrboro/Chapel Hill native who has successfully closed 500+ properties! I bring 27+ years of experience and a wealth of local real estate know-how to my clients, helping them make informed buying and selling decisions. I’m here to put your interests and goals before my own, guiding you towards a decision that feels right for you.


James Blackburn


Hi there, I’m James!

The first thing you need to know about me? Aside from the funny accent thanks to my UK past – I’ve been firmly rooted in the local area for the past 30 years! From multi-million dollar estates to first time homes, I’ve got an impressive track record to back me up when I say, I know real estate. I love what I do and being someone you can really rely on.


Suzy Armstrong


Hello! I’m Suzy and I’m here to help smooth stressful transitions as you buy a new home or sell an old one. I moved to Chapel Hill nearly 30 years ago and after working in RTP to support Federal government agencies, I joined the real estate profession. It’s now been 20 years since that change and I’ve enjoyed helping many others make life-changing moves.


Colleen Jelley


Hi there, I’m Colleen! I moved to Carrboro from Atlanta in 1992 and never looked back! I’ve been involved in real estate in one capacity or another for longer than I care to mention. For now, whether it’s Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough or beyond, I do my best to provide you with the most professional, responsive and attentive real estate services that make the best sense for YOU and no one else. Give me a call, I look forward to chatting with you!


Al Bowers


Hello, I’m Al. In addition to my real estate endeavors, I used to run a couple of local restaurants. My award winning restaurants received numerous accolades including the prestigious Trip Advisor “2018 Best Hamburger” in America; a testament to my commitment to delivering exceptional food and unparalleled customer satisfaction.

Since obtaining my real estate license in 1999, I have been actively involved in community development efforts, collaborating on numerous projects to bring innovative residential communities to life. My contributions to projects such as Beechridge, The Estates at Coles Crossing, Olive Creek and Bradford Ridge have helped shape the landscape of Orange County, providing residents with quality housing options and vibrant neighborhoods to call home.
