Hello! Bonjour! Buenos Dias! Although I’ve lived in the Triangle for more than 20 years, I am also a global citizen and “third culture kid,” as my parents were from Holland and France. I enjoy learning about where others are from, whether it’s another part of the world, another part of America, another part of North Carolina, or even another part of the Triangle! I am trilingual (English, French, and Spanish) and look forward to working with you for all your home buying or selling needs in any of these languages.
Here in the Triangle we are fortunate to be a part of the global economy, with national and international companies located all across the region. This gives us a great feeling of diversity as people move into the area from around the world, and it is a great opportunity to meet new people with different backgrounds. It also means our restaurant scene is as diverse as the people in our community, and I love trying out new restaurants. I also love this area for the great parks, small-town feel with a large population, and a full four seasons (in most years, at least!).
My professional background includes experience in hospitality management, property management, HOA administration, serving as mortgage singing agent, and a notary public. All of these experiences have been based in serving others, and I pride myself in doing so with professionalism, honesty, and ethics. Each of my past roles have supplemented my real estate experience and training, allowing me to understand all sides of home ownership, buying, selling, and negotiation, so I can better serve and advise you.
A few other things about me that might interest you… I love travel and have been able to visit more than 60 countries, most recently visiting Ireland, Mexico, and Morocco. As much as I love seeing the world, I am equally thrilled to be at home knitting, sewing, bookbinding, and spending time with my family and dog Milo (an adorable little Biewer Terrier and the official mascot of Red Bloom Realty).
I look forward to meeting you and giving you the best service possible as you take this next big step in life!
Reviews of Anne Z. Clayton, REALTOR
This is our second transaction with Anne and both have been great. Anne was there every step of the way, from finding properties to closing. You could not ask for a better realtor. She has become a true friend. Thank you! – Antonio A.
Anne provided thorough and professional assistance during every step of the process to sell our property. Her communications were prompt and always helpful in guiding us through the necessary steps. We relied on her expertise to make sound and reasonable decisions and knew she was truly invested in making it a smooth and painless process. I would recommend Anne to anyone needing an intelligent, personable, and dedicated agent. – Kate L.
Anne recently helped me find and purchase my first home. She did an excellent job. She met me every weekend with a list of houses she’d already made all of the appointments for. She would also meet me during week after work to show me houses. Once we found my house and my offer was accepted, Anne continued to work diligently for my best interests. She got the seller to fix everything the inspector said was wrong, including a new roof! I had zero experience and knew nothing about the process of buying a house. Anne held my hand every step of the way and made sure that I always understood what was happening. The housing market is crazy right now for buyers. Anne never got frustrated or discouraged. She stuck with me every step of the way. She even continues to check on me now that I’m moved in! I really can’t say enough positive things about her. If you want to work with an agent who is motivated, energetic and tenacious, Anne is right up your alley! – Julie W.
Anne was very kind to us and she knows her stuff. She was super helpful… and everything about the process went super quick and easy. Thanks Anne! You are the best. – Arunprasath S.
Anne was everything I could ask for. She ended up finding a perfect house that I would never have located on my own. Anne was excellent during the contracting and negotiation stage. She was persistent and managed to gain some significant concessions from the seller. During closing, she reconciled the disclosure documents and found several errors that would have cost me significant money. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Anne again and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! – David N.
