Get to know HPW as our real estate agents share the story behind our brand and how we came to be a part of such a diverse and vibrant community.

The Birth of HPW

Our founder, Don Walston, is well acquainted with the beauty and charm of North Carolina, Don grew up in Wilson, less than an hour away from Raleigh, where his mother instilled in him the value of a strong work ethic and consideration for others.

HPW and Coldwell Banker: Prime-Time Partners

When it came time to build a winning team, Don knew just where to look. HPW partnered with Coldwell Banker, the top real estate company in the world and a highly respected industry leader for more than 100 years.

A five-year partner of our Turkeys for the Triangle program, Butterball generously donated 1,500 of the 2,500 turkeys we handed out this week.

HPW Open Houses | September 22 - 23

HPW Open Houses Sept 22-23Home. It's a word that carries a deep emotional connection. It's where you create memories, lay your head at night and spend time with your loved ones. Hurricane Florence has devastated the eastern part of the state leaving many without a home. Some homes are so damaged they aren't safe enough to live in. Some homes are submerged in water leaving only the roof visible. Some people remain unable to even get home to see if their house is still standing due to flooded roads.

This weekend, our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents will be hosting open houses across Central NC. We invite you to not only visit our open houses this weekend, but we ask that if you have any items you'd like to donate to those impacted by Hurricane Florence, bring those along. We will be taking a convoy of trucks to eastern NC next week to deliver much-needed supplies. Below is a list of items being requested at this time:

Bottled water

Non-perishable food

Pop-top canned goods

Diapers

Flashlights

Batteries

Cleaning Supplies

Personal hygiene products

Adult diapers

Tarps

Rakes

Chainsaw + chainsaw supplies

Shop-Vacs

Fans

Dehumidifiers

Gas Cans

 

We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you all at our area open houses this Saturday and Sunday.

Thank You For Making Turkeys for the Triangle A Success!

Our 2017 Turkeys for the Triangle program donated a record-breaking 4,500 turkeys to feed more than 25,000 people this holiday season thanks to the generosity of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team and Butterball, LLC.

From service members at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and Camp Lejeune to neighbors in need in our local communities supported by nonprofits like Raleigh Rescue Mission and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, our Turkeys for the Triangle birds served to anchor holidays meals and bring cheer in trying times.  

We "tossed" out our second and final turkey donation with help from the U.S. Veterans Corps and our kind agents and staff earlier this week and capped off the annual outreach effort today with our exciting raffle drawing at Johnson Lexus of Raleigh.

"I'll tell you what, it's one of those things," said Don Walston, company founder and chairman, as he spoke about the outreach effort. "It's hard to describe the benefit when you see someone who really appreciates what you're doing for them– it's a– I don't know how to describe it, but it's a warm feeling."

Walston began Turkeys for the Triangle nearly 15 years ago after hearing a radio story about a turkey donation effort the "Godfather of Soul" James Brown began in his hometown of Augusta, Ga. "As I rode along listening to the radio, I got to thinking—if James Brown can giveaway 1,000 turkeys, well then, we could too. As we've gotten into this, we've learned that a number of people don't get to have turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas and it's truly shocking. Our goal is to grow this program to give away 10,000 or 15,000 turkeys each year."

To date, Coldwell Banker Howard Perry Walston's Turkeys for the Triangle program has donated over 30,000 turkeys to feed more than 150,000 people during the holidays.

Gobbling with Gratitude

Our Turkeys for the Triangle program would not be possible without support from a number of local organizations and people.

We've had the tremendous privilege of partnering with Garner-based Butterball, LLC to expand our turkey donations for the past four years. A dedicated program partner, the charitable company donated 1,500 of its sizable Butterball brand birds to Turkeys for the Triangle this year as part of its annual Thanksgiving outreach efforts. "Addressing the needs of the communities where our employees live and work is part of our core values of giving, and through our participation in Turkeys for the Triangle, we are able to serve families in need in the area we call home," said Kerry Doughty, company president and CEO.

Johnson Lexus of Raleigh is another long-standing Turkeys for the Triangle partner we value greatly. Year-after-year, Johnson Lexus of Raleigh has offered up a valuable one-year lease on a new Lexus sedan as the grand prize for our Turkeys for the Triangle. This extraordinary prize is always a crowd favorite!

And, last, but never least, we must pay tribute to our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents and staff, especially annual top ticket salesman Tim McBrayer. We cannot fully express the gratitude we hold for every one of you. Your support of Turkeys for the Triangle is outstanding.

Want to know who won?

Wondering who won the one-year lease on a new 2018 Lexus? Benjamin Passwaters is your man! He will soon get behind the wheel of a new Lexus sedan courtesy of our Turkeys for the Triangle partner Johnson Lexus of Raleigh.

HPW Pig Out For The Cure Raises More Than $23,800 For UNC Lineberger

'Cue, chicken, and charity! We're excited to share that Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston recently raised more than $23,800 for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center as part of our Pig Out For the Cure fundraiser and commitment to Helping People Win.

"Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston and its team members are true friends of UNC Lineberger, and their support makes it possible for us to provide the people of North Carolina with the best cancer care today, and to conduct the research that will lead to even better treatments," said Martin Baucom, UNC Lineberger's senior executive director of development & communications. 

Organized by our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices, our real estate sales associates sought out sponsors and sold barbecue plates to raise the money for the UNC Lineberger's Patient and Family Resource Center. The donation will bring our Pig Out For the Cure program's total contribution to UNC Lineberger to nearly $75,000 since 2010.

"We're very grateful to the many businesses and generous people who supported our Pig Out For The Cure fundraiser," said Randy Cox, sales manager and broker-in-charge of our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices. "Our team prepped and handed out more than 700 barbeque plates and had a great time doing it. We're proud that our effort will help to advance UNC Lineberger's mission to support those facing cancer."

HPW Hurricane Relief Efforts

Just over a week ago, with heavy hearts for Houston and our Texas neighbors, we announced our HPW Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive.

With the generosity of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team and the kind Triangle community, we were able to collect $3,600 and match it dollar-for-dollar through our HPW Foundation for an overall donation of $7,200 to benefit the:

"Our HPW real estate team showed up to the plate for Texas and all those affected by Harvey," said Matt Horton, HPW Foundation President and Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Director of Marketing. "Their generous donations allowed us to raise more than $7,000 to help numerous nonprofit organizations continue their relief efforts."

Hurricane Irma

Today, we watch with great trepidation as Hurricane Irma approaches Florida with a projected path leading up through Georgia, Alabama and into Tennessee. We know this powerful storm will cause major destruction and devastation as it moves along leaving even more of our nation's neighbors in need.

Our HPW Foundation plans to meet those needs head on and will be announcing additional relief efforts after Irma departs. "We do our best to Help People Win in all ways, in all circumstances," added Horton. "Once Irma's winds settle, we will announce a plan to provide support to the communities and people who need it the most."
