Angie feels so lucky to have grown up in the Carolina mountains!!  Spending most of her summers on Lake Lure, by far the most beautiful area ever.  Attending UNC-Chapel Hill drew me to Raleigh where she has spent the last 20 years. She is the proud mother of three girls and an adamant animal lover! Things Angie enjoys the most are reading, running, and cooking. Her happiest days are knowing I have gone above and beyond to make my sellers and buyers extremely happy.  Angie is SPS certified.


Architect &



A 1967 graduate of the School of Design at N. C. State University, William W. (Bill) Sears began his formal study of Architecture after meeting George F. Hackney, a friend of his grandfather, in the fall of 1961. George was one of the original architects that came to Durham with the Duke Foundation in the late 1920’s and built Duke University as we know it today. Working as an apprentice under George until graduation, Bill earned a Professional Degree in Architecture – after which he immediately accepted an invitation to continue his internship with George until formal licensure.


Upon receiving his license to practice Architecture in 1973, Bill became one of George Hackney’s partners and immediately assumed responsibility for the firm’s healthcare portfolio – not the least of which included groundbreaking work at Duke Medical Center and major work at the University. From the time of this initial partnership until the time that Bill assumed the role of managing partner in 1980, Bill’s portfolio of responsibility grew to include both institutional work and project management. Bill incorporated the firm in 1987, and continued to focus primarily on health care facilities (among them Duke, Wake Med-Raleigh, and Wake Med-Cary), institutional work (among them the renovation of the State House for the North Carolina General Assembly and the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion), and project management (among them Cherry Hospital-Goldsboro and Person County Memorial Hospital-Roxboro) until around 1995. Recognizing an extreme shortfall in the availability of appropriate accommodations for Active Adults (the Baby Boomers) and our existing senior community (the Silent Generation), Bill became intensely involved in the study of existing facilities, trends and other significant influences that adversely impact the design of current adult environments – an ongoing study that is resulting in the design of appropriate alternatives (among them SearStone CCRC-Cary, COGIC-Wendell, and Preston Farm-Cary).
