Proudly Brokered by eXp Realty, I am a proud native of Fuquay-Varina. Following graduation from Elon University in 2011, I spent the following five years working in the performing arts in the small coastal community of Beaufort, South Carolina. As a small business owner, and community advocate for the arts, I developed a skill set that has translated into serving my customers in the local real estate market. Passionate about the State of North Carolina and its people, I am thrilled to be working in the place I am so proud to call home.
Outside of the office, Anna is an advocate of the Billfish Foundation, supporting her love of fishing both inshore and offshore. When she can't get to the salt water, you can find her wakeboarding or waterskiing on local lakes. Together with her husband, Robbie, they are raising three boys and passing on their love for the water to the next generation.
We can't wait to introduce you to our family and welcome you as part of ours!
Owner of Kinton Interiors, Lindsey Kinton, has over 20 years of experience in the building industry and 10+ years in interior design. Graduating with a BA from Peace College in public relations and advertising, Lindsey is grateful for the relationships she continues to establish with both clients and subcontractors. Her roots in Wake county go back generations to familiar road names like “Optimist Farm” and “Mann’s Loop” named after her family members. Alongside her own design company, she maintains a design role with a production building company her father began 10+ years ago after moving their family to Fuquay from Kinston in 1994.
Some of her first and forever friends in Fuquay were made that year in the fifth grade. Lindsey’s fondest memories are from Fuquay High School and Fuquay Baptist Church where she met the majority of GLC’s team. Supporting local businesses is important to Lindsey as her husband, Adam, also a Fuquay native, owns a second-generation local business. They understand the importance of pouring into the community at every level. Lindsey constantly seeks to find design inspiration through travel, antiques, art & fashion. At home, Lindsey enjoys her beloved dog, Tillie, cooking anything by Ina Garten, entertaining and gardening.
