Life in Raleigh, NC through the lens of a local Realtor

About RaleighLife365 and Bob Fortner

Hi there!  I’m Bob Fortner and I run RaleighLife365.  I’ve been selling real estate in the Raleigh, NC area since 2002.  I’m also a native of the area, which is getting to be more and more of a rarity.

Have you ever noticed how most real estate websites are all just about the same?  There’s typically some way to search for homes, get an estimate of your home’s value, and tons of reference material about the agent or the agent’s firm.  I’ve noticed that too!

Late in 2012 I decided that I wanted my website to be different.  Being able to search for homes for sale and get info about selling homes seems like a good idea, since those are the main reasons consumers might find their way here in the first place.  But I wanted to do more that just return plain old lists of homes that match some given criteria.  And I didn’t want to clutter things up too much with lots of content about me or Keller Williams Realty.  As a matter of fact, this is the only page on the site where you’ll find information about me.

I’m also very passionate about photography.  That’s a good thing since magazine quality photos are a vital marketing ingredient for getting homes sold.  I even offer my photography services to a few other real estate agents for their more high end listings.  Of course if you list your home for sale with me, you’ll get high quality marketing images no matter what price point your home falls into ;)

So given my expertise in real estate, and my talent in the photography space, a website that uses photographic images to convey what life in the greater Raleigh, NC area is like just made sense. So, RaleighLife365 was created to do just that.

At RaleighLife365 there’s a real focus on neighborhoods, community and what to expect from daily life here in the Raleigh area.  You’ll find the site loaded with information on parks, restaurants, popular entertainment venues, neighborhoods and lots of photos to show you what our area has to offer.

So make yourself at home and enjoy.  And if you want to be sure not to miss anything, then you should definitely subscribe to receive daily updates pushed directly to your inbox.
