Rebecca Simonds Ives


The Triangle area is home to me. Always has been and always will be. I’ve lived in Durham, Wake, and Orange Counties, north of town, south of town, and “in town.” I grew up cheering for Duke, but went to Carolina. I worked in human resources for an airline followed by a software company before getting my real estate license 17 years ago. I am married to a Chapel Hill native and have a son in college and a daughter who is one year away. Both are products of the Durham Public Schools and there is not enough space to list all the wonderful experiences had and people we have met as a result. I may or may not have a soft spot for animals–you can decide for yourself if 6 cats, two dogs, and a couple horses qualifies as “too much.” I live next door, literally and also on purpose, to my sister, so I can absolutely understand and appreciate that sometimes, while buyers simply don’t have a “good” reason for wanting a particular house so much, it’s just something that is meant to be. I could keep going and tell you more about me, but honestly, I’m not and should not be the focus of our relationship … it’s YOU.

You are the reason I enjoy working in real estate. You are the one I want to get to know–your family, your needs, your wants, your budget … the list never ends. My desire is to serve you well and develop a relationship that endures beyond the purchase or sale of your home. That’s how community works. I’d love to have you in mine.

Come see me at our Chapel Hill office!
