Raleigh Cary NC New Homes Realty has announced that the NC-based corporation has officially launched its new national real estate company with the opening of business in Raleigh, NC, according to JoAnne Stone-Mercer, Founder & CEO of the company. The company embraces the concept of virtual office design that minimizes fixed expenses associated with "brick and mortar business".

“We are leading a change in the relationship between the broker and the REALTOR,” Mercer announced in opening ceremonies. She affirmed the company’s goal of being "The New Solution to Leading Edge Real Estate Sales & Relocation." “By promoting an enhanced working environment via the Internet, we can allow the REALTOR more flexibility to conduct his or her business with more freedom to work with the consumer.”

The company researched many real estate markets across NC for its state and national launch. “We are very excited to have selected Wake County which is leading the state in relocation and at the top 10 metros in the United States,” she noted. “North Carolina has begun to be a national leader in the real estate & relocation industry.”

Raleigh Cary NC NewHomes is now actively recruiting the top producing REALTORS in Wake County. “There are more than 6500 plus REALTORS in Wake County and we know the most successful, independent and professionals among them will embrace this new solution to real estate sales and ride the wave of success available through our company,” Mercer said.

Raleigh Cary NC New Homes plans to launch operations in Mecklenburg, Union, Buncombe, Guilford, Pitt, Brunswick, Johnston, Carteret, Onslow and major markets in South Carolina within the next 90 days and expects other states to come on board as the company expands.

Who is Joe the Plumber?

His name is Joe Wurzelbacher and he is a plumber from Ohio. Last night in the Presidential Debate, Joe the Plumber became a symbol of the economic troubles crippling the United States. Joe encountered Senator Obama while he was campaigning in Toledo, Ohio earlier this week. Joe wants to buy the company he works for, but purchasing it would make him a target of the Democrat's plan to tax the "wealthy." Joe told Senator Obama about his frustrations with Obama's plans to raise taxes on the "wealthy" and the Illinois senator replied that it was important to "spread the wealth around.

"Spread the Wealth?

Yes, Senator Barack Obama said he wants to "sprea d the wealth around." That means that he wants to take Joe's, and countless other small business owners', hard earned money. Senator Obama wants to raise their taxes so he can pay for his government mandated healthcare system and other big government programs. He wants to punish small business owners who are successful and about to climb the next step on the economic ladder by spreading their "wealth."It's No Surprise that Obama Wants to "Spread the Wealth Around"It's no surprise that Senator Obama wants to spread Joe the Plumbers "wealth." He voted for higher taxes 94 times in four years in the United States Senate. And, he requested nearly $1 billion dollars of your money for wasteful pork barrel spending. Imagine what he will do as the most powerful man in the United States. Obama's rhetoric sounds nice now, but it will feel like a painful sucker punch if he is elected and his plans to raise taxes are implemented.

Senator McCain will Fight for Every Joe the Plumber

John McCain consistently voted against tax increases and never once took a wasteful pork barrel project. As a result he was given an "A" rating by the National Taxpayers Union and has received awards from the Citizens Against Government Waste for being a good steward of taxpayer money. John McCain wants to lower your taxes and reduce government spending and has the record to back up his rhetoric.
