About Robin Thomas

I was born and raised in Kannapolis, NC, home to NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt. My love of home and family began at an early age. I attended NC State University where I studied biology and computer programming.

I love watching and attending NC State football and basketball games. I played the flute with the marching band throughout my high school and college years.

After graduation, I stayed in the Research Triangle Park area. I’ve lived in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Durham, where I built my first house in 1990.

I am married with two children, a daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. We have three cats and three dogs. My husband and I love to cook healthy, fresh food. He is an avid gardener, so we enjoy eating from the garden as much as possible.

Following a successful career in Information Technology at Nortel Networks, my passion for home and family led me to a career in real estate.

My Top Shelf listing service will help sellers put their best foot forward, and enable me to sell your home for as much money as possible and as quickly possible, often on the first day on the market with multiple offers. As your buyer’s agent, I will work tirelessly to help you find the perfect home that you’ve been dreaming of. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, let me put my many years of experience to work for you!
