Why should you use a travel agent?
- Travel agents work for YOU, not the travel supplier. We are looking out for YOUR best interest. We will call and call and call to get you the refund for the incorrect charge that showed up on your account. We do not try to sell you more than you want or need. In fact, we have been known to talk clients out of spending money because they didn’t need the options they thought were necessary.
- Travel agents save you time. You can share with us what you are looking for and we can immediately rule out options that are not a good fit. We can sit on hold dealing with new discounts that just came out. When you have a sudden thought while sitting in carpool, you can call or text to before you forget.
- Travel agents save you money. We follow discounts, specials and promotional offers. We know how to plan to help you maximize the money you are spending. We suggest options that will allow you to get the most “bang for your buck”.
- Travel agents can help you avoid scams or less than ideal locations. We book with trusted, reliable sources. We recommend hotels and cruise ships that have a good reputation. Travel agents talk to each other and we share information about the cleanliness of a place or the level of customer service provided.
DWB Vacations’s concierge planning services are complimentary when you book through us.

Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

THP offers on location photography in Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Raleigh for your special occasions and milestones or to capture the details of everyday life. I love to travel so if you are outside of this area contact me for a custom quote.
For all THP Sessions I strive to keep it as relaxed and fun as possible. I place the focus on the connection of joy and love between those in the session. Traci Huffman Photography incorporates lifestyle photography in each session. We often see photographs posed perfectly and people smiling at the camera which is absolutely beautiful, however that is not always reality. THP captures your life as it is including the emotions, and most importantly the personalities & real life. Often the favorite images are the ones I catch in between with real life moments. I always get the posed “look at the camera and smile” shot, but I focus on capturing the love, joy, and emotion and less on the formal posing.

My love for houses and helping people has led me to choosing a career as a real estate agent. I grew up with a father who worked in the residential construction business which has allowed me to recognize both positive and negative aspects of housing. I feel it is very important to educate the buyer or seller about the process, listen to their needs/wants, and be their adviser. Buying or selling a house is a very important and challenging task to undertake. I will walk you through the entire process and make it as fun as possible while putting your needs in the forefront. I earn my client’s trust through honesty, patience, and hard work. I will see my clients needs through to the very end and will continue to provide value to the client even after a sale completes.
I chose to partner with Coldwell Banker HPW because they are the number one real estate company in the Triangle. With over 40 years experience, you can be assured that your needs will be put first!

Our founders are Haley Gray, and Christine Schoaff. This company was born when Haley experienced care giving for both of her parents simultaneously, while caring for four small children, and working a full time job. Some of the caregivers which worked with her parents were fantastic. Some of them were not. Some of them outright neglected Haley’s father who had dementia and Parkinson’s, leaving him sitting in a soiled diaper for hours, and leaving him alone while on duty. Other caregivers weren’t so bad, and they just neglected to scoop the kitty litter box, resulting in a nasty, smelly apartment.
Haley spent hours talking to the good caregivers trying to understand what motivated them, and what didn’t. It became clear that most of the good caregivers consider this line of work to be a calling. Frankly, you can’t pay someone to do this kind of work, and expect them to want to do it. They have to WANT to do it. So, the question becomes- how do we attract, and retain the industry’s best and most caring caregivers? We surveyed a number of caregivers and other personnel in the industry to understand what was important to them. Then we set about to start a company which provided those things which were most important to the caregivers.
From the client side of the equation, Haley interviewed a number of other clients, as well as geriatric care managers, pharmacists, and others, to ask them what the best practices are in the industry. By combining their suggestions together, and putting together a business plan as part of Haley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Concentration at Duke, we had the basis of the company. We use technology where it is appropriate. We also use various low-tech approaches to care giving, such as better access to supervisors, random, unannounced drop-ins, and a note-book sharing system so that caregivers and family can communicate with one another about the state of their loved ones.
What this means for you is this- we aim to provide the best of both worlds. That means, better care for our clients, and a better work environment and conditions for our employees. It is quite simply, a win-win.
We have an amazing team of caregivers and managers in this business. Everyone’s first priority is customer safety, and satisfaction. We aim to be an Extension Of You. To make sure that Your Standards Are Realized.
Providing support to women throughout the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience is a passion of mine. I follow the DONA Code of Ethics and have completed all of the requirements for DONA certification. Having attended births at most of the hospitals in the Triangle area, I am comfortable working with your birth team of a midwife or doctor, nurses, and support partner to help you feel calm and empowered throughout your labor and birth. If you are interested in working with me, please contact me for a free phone and/or in-person interview. I am excited to meet you!

Scentsy | Raleigh, NC
Hi! I am Shannon and I am a Scentsy ADDICT! I became a consultant because I wanted to share my love of Scentsy with everyone and to show off how amazing the product really is. I used to be addicted to candles and would have them burning 24/7 which was a MAJOR hazard, but luckily I don’t have to worry about that ever again! Not only do I not have to worry about a flame or the harsh pollutants that candles give off, but the scent lasts so much longer with Scentsy. I am so glad that I made the switch and I would love to help you all out 🙂
I’m a Mom and Wife committed to spreading the message of hope and healing! After 2 decades of health struggles with cancer, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, digestive issues, food allergies and more, I FINALLY found relief with the Plexus natural supplements. They got to the root of the issue and allowed my body to heal. Praise God! After my amazing health testimony, I decided to give up my 6-figure business mentoring biz to focus entirely on helping people feel well. I also LOVE helping my team grow a rewarding, flexible, financially abundant business with Plexus. It is the BEST business model and compensation plan that I’ve ever seen!
