Meet Ray
An unrivaled real estate broker in Durham. My passion is making your dreams come true!

My name is Ray Kinard. I am the leading RE/MAX realtor in North Carolina and Virginia for people looking for vacation, retirement, second, and summer homes on Lake Gaston.

Having earned my BS degree at the University of Phoenix in Business Information Systems and my Master's degree in Information and Learning Technology from the University of Colorado, I have extensive experience and knowledge. However, after a successful 30+ year career in learning and development, I decided to start a new chapter.

Currently, I reside on the Southwest Quad of Lake Gaston with my wife Kelli and our Labrador Retriever, Sierra. I advocate for this region because I know firsthand the quality of life it offers. In fact, before moving to Lake Gaston, we vacationed here for years. By moving here, we turned our life into a never-ending vacation, and so can you!

Ultimately, our love for the area motivated us to buy property on the lake, sell our home in Northern Virginia, and build our dream home. In the end, building your dream home is building your dream life. With two grown sons beginning their adult lives and careers, we love spending time on the lake and taking advantage of the outdoor activities it offers.

Throughout my life, I have developed a passion for helping others realize their dreams and actualize their visions. My passion for helping others was the genesis of my real estate career. Ultimately, my leadership and experience set me apart, and I always prioritize your best interests and ambitions.

My transparent, communicative, and client-centric real estate brokerage services are in a league of their own, and I love helping clients start their own new chapters and make their dream lives a reality. Plus, licensed in both North Carolina and Virginia and as a member of the Roanoke Valley Association of Realtors, I can help people everywhere secure their private slice of the paradise that is Lake Gaston.

I dedicate myself to partnering with each client to achieve their unique, personal goals. Whether you are interested in buying, selling, finding your dream home, downsizing, or simply establishing a sound real estate investment, I can surely help!

Together, we can make your dreams come true. All you have to do is get in touch!
