Town Meets Country in Apex, NC

Named the #1 Best Place to Live in America by MONEY Magazine in 2015, Apex has become famous for its small-town culture and charm. Yet despite its rapid growth (due in part to its proximity to Research Triangle Park, Downtown Raleigh, and RDU International Airport), Apex offers an escape from the hustle and bustle.

Apex's rural properties, particularly those near Jordan Lake, feature everything from horse pastures to acreage to fully stocked fishing ponds. If you're looking for your dream home in Apex, contact us today at (919) 749-3177.
