About Irina

I came to America many years ago as an exchange student through the first ever youth exchange initiative authorized by Michael Gorbachev. I was a student at Rostov-on-Don state University, Russia, at that time going to small town in America called Chapel Hill, North Carolina...
I never went back! I was so fascinated with the true freedom of speech and capitalism that I decided to make America my home!
Fast forward a few years, I was working at Bank of America, then originating mortgages and finally found my calling in helping buyers and sellers make good financial decisions about real estate at the right time.
I work with great people that want honest advice from the real estate professional, that sometimes means to be able to hear what you fear the most. I offer suggestions and valuable options for you to review. There is always a way to get it done, being creative and thinking out of the box helped many of my clients to achieve their goals!
In teaching many real estate seminars of several topics like How to buy distressed homes, foreclosures and REO properties; How to sell in tough market; What to do about your home and finances in divorce; Credit improvement; Green home building and buying; and many more... I learned that buyers and sellers need education and information that can empower them to make great decisions.
So, whether you are looking to buy, sell, build, invest, rent/lease purchase or develop we can meet and talk about many aspects of the process.

I have had the great pleasure of knowing Irina Bennet for several years. My husband and I first contacted Irina to help us buy an investment home. We were so pleased with the work she put in find a great investment. She had done so much for us, much more than what was required or expected. Any problem or issues that arise thru the process, Irina was there to make it right. Her expertise and advice saved us a significant amount of money. She is a hard-working and a tenacious negotiator. Her unique talent and desire to help her customers are invaluable. I would give Irina my highest recommendation. – Sandra Brizuela
Irina is phenomenal. She worked so hard for us on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one that we really felt like we were her only clients. She was extremely informative and honest with us from the onset. She did a great job of educating us and setting expectations realistically. She always had our best interests at heart, was extremely responsive, and truly I can't imagine ever working with any other realtor. – Katie Phillips

She is an “outstanding human being” who combines her knowledge, years of business experience and drive for excellence into practical and clear solutions to addressing her customer’s real estate goals/challenges.

Irina is an awesome Real Estate professional and I would recommend her to anyone seeking expert help in purchasing a home in the Raleigh area. – Carl Mims
I know Irina for 8 years now, she is the SUPER-Agent! Found her first online based on research and qualifications, but later was impressed with her wonderful personality and outcome of business with her. I bought with Irina so far 2 properties in NC for my big family and sold 1. Irina far exceeded our expectations, being expert not only in real estate (knowing all "underwater" streams), but also in investment and financing. She is honest, reliable bright person, it is pleasure and fun to work with her. Her productivity is fantastic, seems like she has more than 24 hours per day and mostly lives in her yellow Hammer. Irina is our family friend now and I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for outstanding realtor, dependable business partner or just a great Friend. – Rod K

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Irina Bennett in November of 2012. We had been looking for a home in the Raleigh area for several months with no luck. From the very first meeting with Irina, we knew we had found the absolute perfect person to take on the task of finding us our dream home. Since we were moving from Los Angeles, we knew very little about the various neighborhoods. Irina spent the time to understand what type of home we wanted, what area would suit our needs and what price range would be best. Thanks to Irina, we are now living our dream! I have, and will continue to recommend Irina to anyone embarking on the sometimes daunting house-hunting journey. You will be in good hands. Sandra Murphy – Sandra Murphy
I know Irina more than 10 years. She helped me to sell and buy homes for my family. It was a great pleasure to work with Irina. She is a real professional and a wonderful person. I always enjoy when have a chance to communicate with her. I recommended Irina to all my friends as "the best real estate expert in our area". – Sergey Glazunov
I would highly recommend Irina Bennett to anyone to anyone who needs to buy or sell the property! Her devotion to work on selling our house was above and beyond all our expectations! Excellent communication, fast responses to any question, help with contractors to prepare property for sale, knowledge of market, useful advices - she gave it all.... Irina worked 24/7 to help us to sell the house, and everything was done within 3 months. Honestly, at the closing we felt like we underpaid her :), the amount of hours she spent on research, advertisement, showings, etc. was enormous !!! She is extremely professional & pleasure to deal with ! We can put it in writing & notarize it ! We bought & sold several houses, I wish we'd met her before, compare to other agents, she was "Jackpot" Real Estate agent ! – Tatyana Martin
Oneal and I have known Irina for over two years. We were recommended by our mortgage lender (The Amy Bonis Team). We were extremely impressed with her consistent professionalism, hard work and dedication to her clients. She is very knowledgeable about the market and she made herself readily available at all times. Irina you are an excellent realtor and we highly recommend you to anyone buying and selling a home. Thanks again. Sincerely, Oneal & Tamara Campbell – Tamara Campbell
I am writing with great pleasure to recommend Irina Bennett to anyone who is interested in learning more about real estate and ensuring a peace of mind that the investment is safeguarded and bound to multiply. I was introduced to Irina 10 years ago by a friend of mine, who introduced Irina as an expert and a Guardian Angel! I must say that I have been lucky to have Irina as not just a subject matter expert but also as a great friend for life. Irina has helped me design and build homes for both personal and investment use. From the moment you meet Irina, you will start learning what works and what does not work in the real estate market. Irina is very detail oriented, a real estate encyclopedia actually, and fun to work with. Initially, I intended to buy 1 home for personal use. However, I was so impressed with Irina's real estate knowledge that I asked her to help me with my real estate investments as well. I ended up buying a couple of great investment properties with the help of Irina. Even though the market went down, Irina's recommendations actually improved in value. I am so happy that I have Irina in my team of subject matter experts, and I recommend Irina Bennett to anyone who is looking for a sincere, intelligent, confident, ethical, strong performer, and a distinguished real estate subject matter expert! – Arjumand Khan

Irina is one freakishly bright lady. She is very good at analysis, She understands the market in Cary / Morrisville very well and is always keen to get the best deal for the buyer. If only she could be in more places than one, I'd have her doing the same Real-Estate consultancy in NY / NJ / PA tri-state area. All the best to you Irina. P.S - She is good at playing the Piano too! – Alex Desh
I found Irina to be competent, knowledgeable, personable, credible and someone I would be more than happy to work with. I feel she would have my best interest at heart and would not steer me in a wrong direction. Irina came highly recommended and I was not disappointed after our initial consulation. She did not rush her time with me which is a clear indication she was willing to give what it takes and not someone that is going to walk in check off a list , and leave. I would definitely recommend Irina to any of my friends needing a realtor. – Ndine Smith
I met Irina while moving from FL to Raleigh NC. Did not really liked working with Russian real estate agents but when met Irina, she changed all that! So we had great experience buying in the new state and less worries as Irina told us all the ins and outs of the real estate business details. She has lots of experience and fun personality. Great sense of humor that helped us feel good in stressful situations. We found a new friend! – Koretsky Nadejda
I am living in CA. I have never met with Irina in person, but we became friends over the two transactions we have accomplished. We sold my town home in 2010 in a shot time period. Irina strongly negotiated with the buyer and got my sale price. Later in 2011 we tried to sell my another home, but finally decided to rent. Irina have managed moving-out and moving-in with my old and new tenants and arranged all needed repairs during this time, so I didn't have to travel to NC. In my opinion Irina is a very strong and ambitious person with a lot of energy to handle different situations. – Lana Phelps
I have known Irina for over 2 years. She is the best at what she does. She is not only very knowledgeable of the industry, but also has great people skills. She helped me find 2 investment properties, a house for my aunt, our primary residence and is now helping us to sell our previous home. she has become a friend. – Bahma Tandouna
As first time home- buyers, we were extremely flustered with the number of variables and fine-prints involved with purchasing homes. We stumbled into Irina, by stroke of luck (or perhaps it was pre-determined) and have been pleasantly delighted with our experience. Irina is not only extremely competent and knowledgable, but is also a wonderful, warm, open and sincere human- being who is constantly striving towards excellence. She goes above-and-beyond to make the real estate experience exciting while keeping her clients in emotional check when she sees them getting carried away, thereby making sure that you have all the facts before you take your decision. She really does have the client's best interest in mind- very rare for real estate agents in today's day and age. Highly recommend. – M B
