Which is why buyers in the Raleigh real estate market are falling head over heels in love with Wake Forest and Tryon.

There’s simply no better place to enjoy tranquil wooded surroundings with fantastic local amenities and easy highway access to downtown Raleigh & Durham and exceptional area recreational facilities.

Wake Forest is a Shopper's Paradise

Check out The Factory family entertainment center. It’s a one-stop-shop for food, fun, sports and recreation. For big kids, try Lafayette Village.

Grocery shopping is a breeze with fresh organic options available at the Farmer’s Market and popular supermarket chains such as Harris Teeter and Lowe’s.
